The Gift

Y'all haven't heard much about White Trash Bob lately.  I'm about to remedy that.

The other day he called me ten minutes before my alarm clock went off (he has a knack for doing that) and said in his usual irrepressible way, "Oh good, you're up.  Come to your front door.  I have something for you."  Thinking it was probably futile to explain to him that I wasn't really up, I shuffled to the front door in my jammies.  There stood WTB on the front porch, holding something behind his back.  I held out my hand for it and he presented me with....my very own WonderBar!  Now I don't have to keep borrowing his, or using a hammer or my little prybar when a WonderBar works so much better!

Other girls can have their flowers and candy and sparkly things.  I'm happy with my WonderBar.

  1. There you go....WTB to the rescue.

    Wonder Bars put crow bars to shame. Now all you need is the little Wonder Bar to remove trim and other small pieces of wood. It's about 5 or 6 inches long and about 1 inch wide. I use it all the time when taking my windows apart.

  2. I looked wonder bar up on the net. I have one of those and didn't know it's name :-) Invaluable in prying up tack strips and staples when removing carpet and no slouch in getting off baseboards either.

  3. Bless his lil heart! Gotta love good neighbors. Like Karen Anne, I have one too but didn't know they were called wonder bars. Mine's always been the "pry bar thingy".

  4. That guy melts my heart! ;D

    I had to look it up too, and guess what, I used one this summer. It was my brothers....I pulled up tack strips in his new house. It's a handy tool for jobs like that.
