Electric birthday shear cutting

cutting pvc pipe to fit in the trunk at Lowes parking lot

We took the day off to celebrate my birthday.

Lunch at Red Lobster and a matinee put a big smile on my face.

I now take the Milwaukee M12 shear cutter to town so we can fit 10 foot long sections of PVC pipe in the car without sticking out the window.

What did you see?

Emily --- We saw the second Hunger Games movie. I had liked the books, but hadn't seen the first movie, and Mark liked the first movie, so it seemed like a good fit. Poor Mark has to choose movies carefully because I can't handle much violence or sensationalism. :-)
