If Tools Could Talk

If only these tools could talk.
I am sure they would have many stories.
Many, many stories.

They are hanging in my Grandfather's shed.

Which was his Father's shed.

A shed that has been used by five generations.

Five generations.

Here they hang,


On rusty nails.

I think they look just fine.

Don't you?

If they fall on your head and rip your head open, would you need a tetanus shot? I'm just asking. LOL ;-)

No seriously, that is really cool. Five generations of anything is something to really appreciate.

Happy WW!

I wish old things could talk about the loved ones who used them. :)
