Grassington 7/8

I saw this in one of the gift shops in Grassington and thought for the men among us this would be absolutely ideal, and let’s all be honest, those words on that tin could probably apply to any of us, something to keep in our sheds in case we need stuff. Before you ask I didn’t buy one, I’ve got enough boxes of stuff about the place already according to she who will remain nameless!

I like to keep stuff [nuts, screws, washers, buttons...] in jam jars, so I can see what is in the container without having to open it...
Brian Walbey: I've got two very larger plastic trays with compartments and a transparent lid, very useful indeed.
i need one of these Brian... would you consider purchasing one and shipping it to Moonbeam for megrin....petersmile
Brian Walbey: If Maureen was able to drive at the moment I would gladly return to the Yorkshire Dales and get you one of these peter. Indeed, going by subsequent comments I would need to get a few, including for the ladies smile

Great humor! I like the color, too.
Brian Walbey: Good job we men have got broad backs and wide shoulders smile

Perhaps you will find one of these on the Christmas Tree, Brian
Brian Walbey: She who will remain nameless failed to come up with that surprise last Christmas Lisl!!!!
Haha, nice post Brian. 7 pounds is a small price to pay for the pointless stuff grin
Brian Walbey: I nearly bought one for the fun of it to be honest.

Quite so Brian: we all like keeping tins full of pointless things..
Brian Walbey: Tins, boxes, bottles etc.etc. the list goes on doesn't it smile

Is this a bit like a man's shed? A fine and funny observation! I thought "and some secrets I must keep"!
Brian Walbey: A man's shed full of these would be like paradise Philine smile

Do they have a woman tin, for leads, screws & other pointless stuff I must keep.

Brilliant stuff here...LOVE it.
Brian Walbey: I didn't see a women's tin Astrid, if I ever see one I will buy it as a gift for you.
I started LOLing when I saw this, Brian. This would be so Astrid! grin
Brian Walbey: Somehow I thought Astrid would like this, now she wants a women's one smile

I still have some tobacco tins that must be getting on for 100 years old.
Brian Walbey: Yes I've got a couple that were my Dads, and an old biscuit tin as well I think. I certainly have some very old tools of his, goodness knows why i hang on to them.
My spare nails are rusting away in a treacle tin in the shed
Brian Walbey: We had a large old Oxo tin for a long while full of nut and bolts and washers that were my Dads, they've gone now.
The tin that every man should have, and probably does, as you say. Was there a tin for a lady. I have to confess I have loads of tins and jars with all sorts of nails and screws in them, waiting for that one day when they might be needed!
Brian Walbey: Sadly there wasn't a tin for ladies, but it is good to hear that not just you, but other ladies as well, have a need for such things. But do you, like men, hang on to those short bits of wood left over after sawing up a long piece, just in case! smile
I love this idea. I have lots of tins but they are nameless.
Brian Walbey: I'm learning fast here today that you ladies are just as bad as we men at keeping all those bits and pieces that just might be needed one day.
I wish this was mine Brian! Great capture.
Brian Walbey: I was tempted to get one for the fun of it Richard, but then I have loads of such tins anyway smile
what a fun tin
Brian Walbey: Isn't it just Chantal, and so true of the male gender.
I have just thrown out a load of stuff that would once have gone in one of these Brian
Brian Walbey: So have I over recent times Bill some of it dating from my Dad, and I really don't need the stuff I'm hanging on to in all honesty.
just briliant Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ronky, this is a male trait, although it seems some of you ladies here have lots of little tins as well.
This would make a great gag gift for someone I know, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I bet there's a few of the ladies on here would say the same thing Beverly.

I keep stuff because I know that I will need it as soon as I throw it away.
Brian Walbey: About the same as me then Chad smile
Very true. I have an amazing collection of leads, good job USB now seems to be the universal standard with computers and peripherals, but it's goodbye SCART and hello HDMI in the TV and audio world, it never ends smile
Brian Walbey: Yes I also have a fine selection of leads John, mostly all defunct with the progress of time sadly.
What a great tin, Brian. I agree with Astrid that there should be one for women too. I could certainly use one for such important, easy to lose bits.
Brian Walbey: Be like my Maureen, she can't let any little box she gets go, it has to be filled with 'stuff'. She does a lot of craft work so you can imagine how much 'stuff' she has got, the two of us make a real pair for hoarding in boxes!!
Brian, I'm a real squirrel when it comes to keeping things, and yes, I have bits of wood and loads of tools and garden items, all waiting for the 'ah I have it' moment.
Brian Walbey: And in the end that moment rarely ever comes does it smile
I have a masters degree in keeping stuff,Brian...One of these days....
Brian Walbey: Only a Masters Frank, I'm a Professor in the arts of keeping boxes of 'stuff', as indeed is Maureen!!!

I need one, or several in fact
Brian Walbey: I could fill a carton load of these Paul smile
Well, you know, sometimes it does and has a couple of times in the last two weeks when we were looking for a few bits and pieces to do a small job on the caravan.
Brian Walbey: I usually know I've got something somewhere and then can't find it when it is needed !!
What a laugh, I could fill half a shipping container with all the things kept in case they might come in one day.
Brian Walbey: It seems to be a male trait Martin.
