For the Love of Tools IV

Written By: der5er - Jan• 15•07

Cooper needs a tool belt.

Prior to the fire, Cooper had a tool belt. It had a canvas 2 pocket apron, a toy hammer, level, screw driver, and pager.  It wasn’t necessarily his favorite toy, but he did like to play with it.  He also had a really cool wooden work bench in his room with really neat wooden tools.  I actually bought that for him before he was born.

Well, in the last week, I’ve managed to acquire a few tools (thanks to Uncle Jim for getting my new tool collection started!).  As I unwrapped my new Robo-Grips, Cooper explained how his tools burned in the fire. He wasn’t sad about it.  He just stated it as fact.  And it was a fact.  His tool belt, all his tools, and his work bench were all destroyed in the fire.  Then, a few days later, as I was unwrapping my new Plumb 22 oz hammer (thank you Grandma Shirley!), he told us about his hammers, and that they had been burned up in the fire.  So, for the love of tools, I’m shopping for new tools for Cooper!
