I have received a number of interesting birthday and anniversary gifts from my husband, over the years. One year, I got a laser level, which the husband uses to shoot elevations for his jobs. Another year, I got a miter saw, which the husband uses to cut boards when he installs synthetic turf. And yet another year, I got a high powered pressure washer which had so much power I actually gouged the wood on my porch pillars, so now the husband uses it to clean customers drives and patios. I have been strongly hinting for a blow torch, but to no avail, either because the husband has no use for one, or he is afraid I will actually use it. And I would.
I have this great desire to create yard art from scrap metal and some of the ideas will defiantly require a blow torch and a welding gun. So if my husband is reading this, I need both! The idea started when we were driving in the mountains and came upon a house with large and incredible structures made of scrap metal. One piece was an abstract flower, another was a very large cactus and yet another was some four legged beast which I won’t bother describing because I would not do it justice. But it was the totem pole made from an oil drum that sparked my desire.
I have been envisioning some of these fantastic pieces dominating my garden, which may be another reason I have not received my blow torch.
I have a birthday coming up in a few months and an anniversary a couple months after that. If I have not received my blow torch for either of these, there is always my husband’s birthday. Why hadn’t I thought of that sooner?
