Art and My Husband


The wind was much cooler when we woke this morning, the hint of winter is definitely in the air. I just want to sit at my workbench and play with my art. However things call me that have to be done, yard work, housework, and half a lug of peaches that won't wait.
This is a picture of my husband which I took this morning. He's wearing his trusty hat "there's still a lot of use in it". Don't laugh, he hasn't patched it up with duct tape yet.
Shortly after we were married a friend asked me what my new husband does for a living I told her that he was an appliance repair man. "Oh, Diane, you're so lucky!" she said. Leonard not only fixes appliances but he also does our electrical work, plumbing, heavy yard work, carpenter work, furnace repair, and any other thing that needs fixed around our house. He chewed me out when we were first married because I took the typewriter to the repair shop. Geez! I didn't know he could do that, too.He keeps the bills paid with his appliance repair which he's done for about 40 years and has quite a few loyal clients who won't let him retire. And he does all this while he fights a nasty medical condition called lupus. I guess I am pretty lucky. Diane

What a cutie, Diane. I love his smile. He looks like a man who can just fix ANYTHING. My father-in-law repaired small appliances all over the Hendersonville area for years and years. I don't think he quit doing that until he was in his 80's.... Amazing!!!

George has none of his father's gifts --when it comes to repairing things. We pay the BIG BUCKS to get things fixed here. Oh Well!!!!

Congrat, Diane. You have a KEEPER.
Hugs,
Betsy

Wow Diane...your own personal handyman. Not to many can say they have that luxury. Most of us have to pay for those services and these days they are not cheap.
Lucky you!
Hugs
