    Thanks CALFFBOU

    My wife walked by as I was looking at the site you gave above, saw the tool roll and Merlin tool, thanks for the extra stocking stuffer's. Brothers and sisters clue your dear ones in, little things like the pocket goodies, contribute to our safety, and most aren't real expensive. Like my sign off says "BE SAFE OUT THERE". Hope everybody has a safe and wonderful holiday season.
