Father's Day

We knew exactly what the get J for Father's Day this year.  We have 2 maddocks but both have wooded handles.  Chopping thistles in wet grass has caused the wood to swell. Then when it dries out the head is loose. 
 J is now the proud owner of a new maddock with a synthetic handle.
 V and E have promised to go thistle chopping with him but so far only E has followed through.  She prefers a little hoe. We told her to invite the basketball team and maybe it would count for one of their weight lifting sessions.  She was not amused.
J says with the new maddock the thistles almost chop themselves.
