Tip of the Month

July 24, 2008 | By | Comments (0)

Dear Steve,
I have always enjoyed you articles so much. Your sense of humor tells me that you would fit right in to our family, (wait–did that sound like an insult? Sorry.) You may already know this, but I didn’t, and I thought it might make a good Tip of the Month.

When pulling especially stubborn, well-rooted, or thorny weeds, a pair of pointy needle-nosed pliers are just the thing. Punch the points into the soil, squeeze tightly and pull, or even twist the weed out. The pliers are inexpensive, fit easily into your pocket, and really save your hands!

Thanks for all the fun reading.

Dear Carol,
Let me guess. You saw that picture of me barefoot, noticed I have 6 toes on each foot, and decided I’d fit right in.

Thanks for the tip. I’ll pass it along to readers, especially female ones, who probably thought before this that the only use for needle-nose pliers was leading their husbands around by the nose.

So what time should I get there for Thanksgiving? I’ll bring the traditional possum stuffing and probably stay for a month. I prefer a goose down pillow and a glass o’ shine before bed.
