Hunters and hippies agree on one thing: trees are cool. Hippies hug them and hunters hide in them waiting for animals to wander into range. Both parties could employ the Tree Hook. For hunters, it’ll hold your rifle or bow up off the ground. Hippies can use the hook to hang your protest signs and Prius keys while you frolick.
You won’t win that Dad Of The Year award with this snowball crossbow but it will help you keep your pathetic excuse for a throwing arm a secret from the kids.

You probably have a “friend” who could use this trimmer on his back. Or to trim Nature’s Turtleneck (that fringe of curlies growing up out of his collar.) Be sure to tell your friend this trimmer has an LED control screen offering 175 trim length options.
Black Sabbath. Quit faking that you know something about them and read this book. It’s not Ozzy’s incomprehensible babbling, Iron Man is the legend and lore of the greatest heavy metal band of all time told from Tony Iommi’s perspective. The fact that you draw a blank on Iommi’s name is reason enough to read it.
