One of our cars needs to be fixed before winter. (Oh, winter, stay away).
Then my father-in-law visits and says that I need to get my husband (his son) to fix something that is wrong with our front door. When I tell my husband he says, "How on earth do you fix that?" I shrug. I have no idea either.
So just what are things we should own, given our areas of expertise?
Him?: Any and all camping / hiking equipment. Funny how he can take all that apart and put it back together. He also does OK with his bike and his trombone. He wants an electric piano just because it won't need tuning.
For me: a pencil. I get a notebook, too. Maybe.
Other than that, we're pretty inept.
