After some more disbelief from my friend, she says that her husband ran away with some little chippy and asked her to sell his tools and send him the money.
Me too. Sad though.
A friend of mine went to a yard (divorce) sale and got a canoe, some rifles, some pistols and one of those humongus multi-drawer tool chests (5ft tall) full of Snap-on tools for like 500 bucks.
Don't know if the hubby was out sailing or on Sailnet though.
