"There's nothing like having the right tool for the right job."
-Bobby


Late the other night we were getting ready for bed and I started the dryer and it made the most unhealthy sound I think a dryer can make. In my experience, if something goes wrong with a big household appliance like this, I almost always have to replace it. It's relatively new, but not under warranty most likely, so I was a little worried about it. When Bobby got home the next day, I asked if he would see if it was something he could fix. When Bobby and I first got married, all of his extra spending money went to Sears on Craftsman tools. He waited for tools to go on sale and bought them, and soon enough we had a respectable collection of tools in our downstairs bedroom closet. So now I'm really happy for him whenever he gets to put his tools to good use. Isn't he cute? And so handy!

The culprit behind the horrible noise the dryer was making? A sock. Somehow one of Franny's socks wormed it's way through one of the holes in the air vent! Weird. Bobby was able to pry the sock loose, thereby saving us money spent on a repair man. Way to go Bobby!!

Yes, having a handy man around is AWESOME! Jed is that way too, and I love it.

Doesn't it feel good to not spend money on a repairman? Bobby looks proud!

Oh that was so funny! I totally forgot about that Janelle! Thanks for reminding me. I hope he never found out- I didn't want him to know.

Oh how I miss the days when Bobby and a trip to Sears was just out my back door! I still go every once in a while, but it's just not the same without Bobby. We miss you guys!
