#2 Tools Father's Day Card

We had our ac/heat units of 13 yrs replaced this past Sat. Had a Trane that used the old style freon that is no longer made. Replaced with Lenox. So glad we took care of this before the temps sky rocketed this Summer. Company we chose & I would highly recommend is Milestone.

Had old style thermostat that used mercury and was not accurate:

They gave us a new digital programmable thermostat at no addl cost. Yoda that I hook rugged back when Star Wars first came out.

Sealing of the air ducts:

Created this Father's Day card for my hubby. My hubby is quite the tool person. Used Simple Holiday Cards for the tools. Heat embossed a Hero Arts stamp for sentiment.

A man that lived next to us passed away last yr and his daughter gave my hubby the custom made tool bench. Before that hubby did not have a tool bench as such. This one fits wonderfully along the back wall of the garage.
