    I have an uncontrolable urge to send you some duct tape – we call it ‘100 mile an hour tape’ around these parts. No self-respecting tool box should be without a roll :o)

    I would add:

    coffee (especially the 1st cup of the day)

    my children (the 1st cup makes them easier to take)

    gardens (flowers-trees-shrubs-and even a few likeable weeds)

    Books :o)

    and way too many more to mention here. Perhaps I should take a minute and make a list myself. Thanks for the morning pick-me-up!

  2. I forgot to add my vitamins …

    Yeah .. coffee has a way of making everything a bit more pleasurable. The Gorilla tape replaced my duct tape … it’s way better! Way tougher and gosh darnit it sounds better than “Duck Tape” seriously .. how hard is it to tape down a duck .. now try taping down a gorilla!

    I never tried Gorilla tape but I have used the glue. As for taping the ducks-consider this:

    First you have to get your ducks in a row (and keep them there) it’s not as easy as it sounds.

    Then comes the process of taping them-well-the oily residue they’re still sporting compliments of the Exxon Valdez spill (and countless others we never hear about) keeps the tape from sticking. Ha! That probably explains why people always describe duck meat as being greasy.

    God forbid if something like that happens in the current economic market-we’ll have to take out a loan every time we need to put gas in the car :o(
