I had invited my nephew to come to look at Mike's tools. Mike restored antique motorcycles. He took on any plumbing or electrical repairs around the house. He had all the right tools.
I keep a hammer in my own little toolbox in case I want to hang a picture. I have a set of screwdrivers, a level, and a tape measure. My brother-in-law pulled out some more stuff he thought I should keep around the house. Then they loaded up these two bad boy tool boxes.
My nephew is an apprentice pipe fitter. He also does his own auto mechanics. He will use all this stuff and he will have his Uncle Mike working alongside him as he does.
It is always sad for me to see bits of our life together go out the door, but this time my heart was full and all tears were happy ones.
