Default My Little Woman's Surprise

My wifey and I went to a wood expo over the weekend. While we were there, she said she wanted to surprise me and get me a new toy. We went our separate ways so that she could find something for me. Well guess what guys...I am the proud owner of the Festool 150 sander and a Festool vacuum. Wow. I am still in shock.

Congrats Bill I wood Hang on to that woman. I have the 150 and the CT26 E dust extractor. The moter in the Ct26 E is being
replaced right now. It only lasted 5 years and the mother burnt up. Sure hope you get more years out of yours. Yes I keep
the filter cleaned and the bag empty. Really disappointed in only 5 years of use.

Wow, what a nice surprise. Now show your appreciation and buy her flowers, candy and take out for a nice dinner. P.S. Valentine's Day is only a couple of weeks away.

Wow!!! - - she must have done some research before you went. Good Show.

Now, whenever I want a new "toy" and she asks why I need it. I just say "It keeps me home." Maybe that wasn't the right thing to say.
