LADIES - Father's Day - gifts for the man

I found this at hotrods and classics.As you know we are still building our hot rod.

GIFTS FOR THE MAN
Buying gifts for men is not nearly as complicated as you may think. Follow these rules and you should have no problems.

Rule # 1:
When in doubt, buy him a cordless drill. It doesn't matter if he already has one. I have a friend who owns 17, and he has yet to complain. As a man, you can never have too many cordless drill. No one knows why.

Rule #2:
If you cannot afford a cordless drill, buy him anything with the word "ratchet" or "sprocket" on it. Men love saying those two words."Hey, George, can I borrow your ratchet?" "Ok.By the way, are you through with my 3/8-inch socket yet?" Again no one knows why.

Rule#3:
If your are really, really broke, buy him anthing for his car (egg?): a 99-cent ice scraper, a small bottle of de-icer or something to hang from his rear view mirror. Men love gifts for the cars
(tow vehicles?). No one knows why.

Rule#4:
Never buy men bathrobes. Once I was told that if God had wanted men to wear bathrobes, He wouldn't have invented Jockey shorts.

Rule#5:
You can buy men new remote controls to replace the ones they have worn out. If you have a lot of money, buy your man a big-screen TV with the little picture in the corner. Watch him go wild as he flips, and flip, and flips.

Rule#6:
Do not buy any man industrial-sized canisters of after-shave or deodorant. I'm told they do not stink- they are "earthy".

Rule#7:
Buy men label-makers. Almost as good as cordless drills. Within a couple of weeks there will be labels absolutely everywhere. "Socks. Shorts. Cups. Saucers. Door. Lock. Sink." You get the idea. No one knows why.

Rule #8:
Never buy a man anything that says "some assembly required" on the box. It will ruin his Special Day and he will always have parts left over.

Rule#8:
Good places to shop for men include Northwest IronWorks,Parr Lumber, Home Depot, John Deere, Valley RV Center and Les Schwab Tire.-NAPA Auto Parts and Sears Clearance Centers are also
excellent men's stores.-
("From NAPA Auto, eh? Must be something I need. Hey isn't this a starter for a '68 Ford pick-up? Wow! Thanks")

Rule # 10:
Men enjoy danger. That's why they never cook, although they will barbeque. Get him a monster barbeque with a 100-pound propane tank. Tell him the gas line leaks. "Oh, the thrill! The challenge! Who wants a hamburger?"

Rule #11:
Tickets to a Cowboys game are a smart gift. However, he will not appreciate tickets to "A Retrospective of 19th Century Quilts". Everyone knows why.

Rule#12"
Men love chainsaws. Never, ever, buy a man you love a chainsaw. If you don't know why, please refer to Rule#7 and what happens when he gets a label-maker.

Rule#13:
It's hard to beat a really goods wheelbarrow or an alluminum extention ladder. Never buy a real man a stepladder. It must be a extension ladder. No one knows why.

Rule #14:
Rope. Men love rope. It takes them back to their cowboy origins, or at least the Boy Scouts. Nothing say love like a hundred feet of 3/8" manila rope. No one knows why.


Happy Father's Day,
Jean

>>Rule #14:

>>Rope. Men love rope

Pam says if she gives me enough rope, I'll hang myself with it.

That's probably why she's never given me rope for a present, don't you think?

I like them all - the truth hurts. :)

I'd really like that 100 LB propane tank - I always run out halfway through my steaks.

On my home gas bbq grill, we never run out of propane unless we're entertaining and are half-way through cooking the meal.

I now keep 3 20-lb bottles on our back deck ... one bottle attached, one full, and one empty that I've been meaning to refill, but haven't gotten around to it.
