My first attempt at something like this so it should be an interesting ride.

Not including your phone, computer, or other Googling device, write about the top five most useful items you own.

1, Hair clippers! When I received them from Amazon a few weeks ago I thought that it would be one cut and I would be being going back to my little Chinese barber. The way the world is going, I think I will more than get my moneys worth from these clippers.

2, TV remote. There’s more than one. How did we manage all those years ago when we had to walk to the TV? Luckily, I don’t have to fight anyone for the control of the zapper. The only thing that can go wrong is when the batteries go flat, and I am thinking of which appliance to take batteries out of. I wouldn’t even know how to control my TV without the remote!

3, Can opener/bottle opener. It’s a mild annoyance when I get a can out of the cupboard and it doesn’t have a ring pull opener on the top. I have even put cans back on the shelf in Walmart because I wouldn’t buy it without a ring pull. And having this little gizmo for opening beer is a must for every house.

4, Bike GPS. Back in the day I would record my bike rides in a small notebook. Those notebooks have disappeared over time. Recording the rides is a personal thing. Nobody else is concerned about how many miles you have cycled this year. But it gives me a feeling of accomplishment to see the miles on my GPS. Those records will probably get lost one day just like my notebooks.

5, Can I have a Kindle? I don’t know if it can go on to Google so it might not qualify for this list. It has Wi-Fi to load books, that’s as far have I have got with its technology. I can’t go anywhere without my little library. What a great invention, I think I have had about four of them over the years.
