The Best Thing I've Heard All Week

     A brilliant friend of mine (Hi Amy) called her new boyfriend a 'gentleman savage' on Facebook this week, and it struck a chord ...

Dan, Dan, the welder man!

Ok, so some of you know that Dan got a welder a while back. He collected copper wiring to strip until he had enough to have a decent chunk of money, and then traded it in for the welder he always wanted. Personally, I didn't think there would be much to do with it once he got it, but what do I know?? LOL! Anywho, he has enjoyed it so much and it's been so much more useful than I would have ever guessed. He has found (or made up) an excuse to use it at least twice a week since he got it. ; ) He has welded the trampoline back together before we got a new one for Christmas, used it to reattach Jodi's muffler, build a cart to roll the actual welder around on (including a little drawer to keep his gloves in) taken it to work and had such fun updating his workout equipment. First he cut apart a barbell bar that he didn't use into little sections and welded them to the back of the weight bench to hold his free weights so they weren't on the floor, then he decided he needed a dumbbell stand to hold all his dumbbells so he wouldn't have to stub his toe on them, and then he made a stand to hold his barbells so he didn't have to bend over to pick them up anymore. Oh, I almost forgot, he made a new ramp for the boys bikes and scooters from some scrap metal and a sheet of plexiglass! Isn't he the craftiest of the crafty? Who thinks up this stuff?? Anywho, I just wanted to share a few photos of the things he made...ENJOY!

Seriously, how does he think of it all???
