In last week’s column I shared with you my frustrations regarding putting together a piece of unassembled furniture.
I have never been much of a handyman, which is why our last fix-it guy charged me $30 an hour, unless I helped him. Then it was $50 an hour.
The nightstand I worked on, by the way, turned out a bit lopsided. When my alarm clock goes off, it not only rings and vibrates, but it slides off the table top and smacks me in the head. I’ll never be late to an appointment again.
Now that I’m semi-retired, I have decided to try a few projects that I would never have attempted even a few years ago. My first goal was to do some repair work in the guest bathroom. I told my wife about my plans.
