We have snake handling gloves if you need them. I hope you never do. One day our truck was doing something funky so my husband pulled up to an auto parts store, opened the hood and found a snake wrapped around a pulley. Apparently the warm engine had enticed the cold reptile to a warmer venue. So my sweetheart did the logical thing and bought gloves.
I also have an old flip phone you can have. It works just fine if you don’t mind texting words like “Zoni.”
I don’t know what that means. But that’s the word that came up when I tried to reply to my hubby’s text informing me that he had ordered new phones. I took that as a sign that the purchase was wise… and long overdue.
We also have a mini-tiller that fits onto a gas powered weed eater. But the weed eater died about five years ago. The mini-tiller is great for small flower beds and things like that, if you can come up with a way to make it turn.
There’s also a very nice picture frame that rotates digital pictures. We can’t quite figure out how to change the pictures, so our vacation of 2005 has been enjoyed to the fullest. If you’d like to see the Outer Banks of NC, I could loan it to you. It is a visual delight. We are quite stunning in our fishing ensembles.
If you need to make a ghost costume, I have a sheet with holes in it, and it’s not even on the bed. The ghost would have to be festive since the sheet is not white. So perhaps next year at Mardi Gras you could use my sheet.
There’s also a stack of egg cartons in the pantry if you are put in charge of crafts for Bible School, or if your chickens tear loose and lay a bunch at once. I used to save them for Hannah but she accidently got a batch of Banty Hens which lay eggs the size of walnuts… very small walnuts. They just rattle around in an egg carton. Besides, it takes about fifteen to make an omelet. So she doesn’t need cartons anymore.
Not sure why I keep all this stuff. But someday, somebody’s gonna need something… and I’ll be ready.
What’s the strangest thing you keep and you’re not sure why?
Be nice now.
It’s too close to Valentine’s Day to list your spouse.
