Confession Of A Not-so-handyman

Weather is getting cooler.  And leaves are changing color. It is early fall for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.  In the years past, I would be busy training for my fall marathon.  But this year, I am done early.

So, it’s time to take care the chores around the house and get it ready for the winter.  At least that is what I think whenever I am reminded by that sheepskin about my degree and  the tuition that went to my engineering school.

I am not a handyman by any stretch.  My repertoire consists of searching online and praying for videos posted by some Samaritan who have solved the exact problem I am dealing with.  You would be surprised how much one can find on sites like the Youtube.

Over the years, driven by my ego and supported by the Youtube, I have tackled problems like replacing the toilet, unplugging the gutters, and draining the furnace.  As a result, I have become familiar with the aisles of the local hardware stores and the not-so-proud owner of miscellaneous parts & tools in my garage.

To some I maybe a “handy-man” around the house.  But if I can’t find the video on the Youtube, the job is best left to the professionals.

Are you a handyperson?
