From all the gardening over the weekend, my hands are covered with splinters, scrapes, cuts, and blisters. It actually hurts to type, but not enough to stem my lj addiction.
I gave my Dad his gift. He is hard to shop for. My Mom on the other hand, bird houses, bird feeders, gardening tools, etc. Very easy. MyDad, all I could think of was that or one of those IR thermometers, where you can measure the temperature of something 15 feet away. I figure he will get a lot more use out of the laser level than a thermometer.
