Bright idea

I stopped by Limback Lumber in Ballard today to buy a wood closet rod and, as usual when I visit a great hardware store, I made an impulse purchase. This time it was the Headlite G2 LED, a baseball cap with an LED flashlight.

Twenty-four hours earlier, this would never have interested me. But after an encounter with a 4" roofing nail in a dark corner of our attic yesterday (followed by an emergency room visit for a tetanus shot and the most expensive shampoo of my life) the Headlite seemed just the thing. Wearing the hat, I ventured back into the attic today to search out and pound down a few other 4" nails left by the *&$#%@ roofers.
