A nice axe, but that kind of money could buy a holiday abroad. I'd go fo the latter.

I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. cats look down on us but pigs treat us as equals.

Stupidity got us into this mess, why can't it get us out

most def a lovely piece, and a hefty price tag too (though no doubt deserved)..

Way too much money to pay for an old secondhand workies tool.

Wouldn't mind owning it though.
