WDYS # 154 -A Roundup post

Looking at these tools neatly arranged

Reminds me of my grandfather and father

Both were creative and good at mending

Things broken or needing a little tweaking

Out would come their trusty tool box and

Putting the reading glasses on they would

Gently and carefully take a look at the problem

And fix it like a pro, gaining great satisfaction from this in process

I was often a part of the helping squad

And learned a lot from them by observing

Still today, Iโ€™m reluctant to throw away things

That I feel can be fixed by a little tender care!

  1. The featured image though…

    I can’t help but imagine myself being bound to a table with duct tape and a rope rolled around me to keep me in place.

    And then The Butcher from the movie Hostel (2005) enters the room to do his thing with all the various types of tools I see in the featured image.

    Sheesh! No need to give me that extreme TLC.

    Other than that, great short piece, Sadje.๐Ÿ™‚

  2. My one grandfather that I lived with for a short time had a small room that was filled with tools and jars of nails and what-all. Though I never saw him fix anything… I am sure he was clever in that way ๐Ÿ™‚ One of my first stories in High School was about that room. My teacher liked it too. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. There is one commercial on the radio that is humorous about a gent who doesn’t know the difference between a Phillips or Flat Head Screwdriver ๐Ÿ˜‰ And of course there are SAE (Standard (automotive engeners) or Metric for cars and or other mesurements. And then the Allen Wrenches with hexigon shapes!!! I think some tools are works of art themselves ๐Ÿ˜€
