Gadgets and even more gadgets!

We're off across the water today to buy the new kitchen units and countertops. I am a little anxious on two counts, the first: not forgetting any of the many fittings/fixtures, and the other: letting my husband loose in a store where he could buy every gadget conceivable- and believe me my husband loves gadgets.
Below are just a few from my Betterware catalogue- some made me laugh, others cringe.

Left: Handy wee contraption- don't you think? Will hand it to my Tennis loving daughter and voila- "love-15" to us!
Question: When they are zapped- where do they land?

Left: Look closely- these things cling to your window- how much lovelier when they are covered in flies- talk about lifelike! Think perhaps l shall stick with the option above.

Above: Ok l must admit that on first glance this looked like sticky tape to me and l laughed- just what l needed to decorate my pots. Anyway on closer inspection- seems like a good option.

Above: Is this a joke? Would never last in this house.

Above: Finish on a funny :)

It was just so elaborate and so luxurious. We had every gadget imaginable. You know, I had the little gun that came out, and I had the little gun in the heel of the shoe.

I actually have that bug zapper! lol

I had a friend that left his laying around and someone killed his computer with it. They pack alot of juice for only using batteries. They are practically useless for killing bugs with though.

Hi Horizon ~~ As I do not get out often to shop, I buy a lot of things by mail
order, and I have quite a few unusual & interesting things around here too.
I hope you have a great trip and get all the things you need, and not too many extras !! Loved the photos of your garden, it is lovely and I am sure your elderly neighbour is glad to have a chat
and a cuppa. Thanks for your comments.
Take care, Merle.

Hi. The first time one of my girls tried to pull a paper towel out of that thing they'd all come tumbling down.

Wonder if the strips around the pots really work? I sure could use some help battling the snails and bugs!
(We don't like to use pesticides)
Happy shopping!!!

Ooh, a "Wild, Wild West" quote. Excellent. Shopping for gizmos is the best part of remodeling. It's what gives you hope.

Hello Horizon ~~ Glad you enjoyed the joke and hope your sister does too. When is she coming to visit?
