Greatest Father's Day Gift To Hubby

Updated on January 18, 2013

My Greatest Gift To My Hubby For Father's Day

A few years back, I thought I had created the greatest gift ever for my hubby as I thought he could carry it around with him every where he went. He informed me that he didn't like it as it was a CD created with Country and Western music (which best described my feelings) and he didn't like Country and Western music. It broke my heart but I lived. This time the gift will be appreciated.

The Vacuum Truck Driver

My husband drives a vacuum truck down here in the oil fields. He would like to start his own Handyman Service called Walt's Handyman Service. To do this, he needs to get a few tools to help him along the way. As I can, I have been getting him tools and he has been getting some here and there. Some of the major tools are still needed. So, I plan to help him along the way this Father's Day.

Oh, by the way, his truck and vacuum trailer are no where near as old as these. His equipment needs to be kept to a certain standard.

UPDATE 1-19-13: Hubby now works for a company that has step-deck and flatbed trailers. He is so happy to finally be pulling this type of trailers. He has always wanted to. Of course, this means we are moving to San Antonio, TX where the job is located.

Father's Day Gift - Put to the test

UPDATE 1-9-13: Have you been wondering how my husband used his Father's Day gift? This is one of the projects that he used his nail guns on. Him and a friend redesigned this lovely entertainment center. The owners of the built-in entertainment center won a 50 inch television and wanted the old entertainment center to be able to hold it. This was a major reconstruction. He went on to do more projects with his nail guns. I will make a slide show so that you can see them.

      Nice gift! Too bad he didn't appreciate the music, too.
