    “Happy Holidays!” What a great palm-sized Skil Cordless Screw
    Driver/Wine Bottle Opener. This would be the perfect gift for
    my oldest son! He just bought his first home and is remodeling
    the inside and would use it for many projects. Especially, installing
    his new blinds, wood work, etc. Of course, when he is done with
    the projects, he can use it to open a bottle of his favorite
    wine. Many thanks, Cindi
