Today at the Alameda County Fair

In between a healthy diet of corn dogs, a margarita, chocolate malt, and corn on the cob – I managed to find my way to the stand of Barry Hoffer – Maples for all Seasons. The maples were nothing too impressive – but he has a cute little selection of hand tools. I took a swig of strawberry margarita and picked up a wood handled pruner. Heavy, simple and fits perfectly in my back pocket. It was $24.50 – I asked if $20 would do and he said yes.
I walked away with an arsenal of fair food and beverages, and a perfect pair of clippers.

Over grown scrub brush by my front door, here I come!
