Not a tool user


Needlenose pliers...I think that's what these are. Though I do have opposable thumbs, I'm maybe not fully Homo sapiens, as I am not so good with tools. These were lying around in the studio (The Husband is not at all the Handyman type, either) where most of our (mostly unused) tools end up. We occasionally go in there looking for "some sort of tool" to fix some sort of house problem. The end result of this is usually giving up (on finding such a tool, or being able to fix the problem, or both).

You put that tool to very good use. See, you are quite handy. It's terrific.

Jala, you can make a pair of needlenose pliers look beautiful. Amazing. Brava!

Jala, this is a very neat painting. I like everything about it, color, design, drawing, brushwork.

I also can relate to not being able to fix much. My wife and the housekeeper were on the front porch one day and yelled to me through the open front door. I stuck my head around the corner and asked, "What?" "The sprinkler head is broken and leaking water." They then did a double take look at each other and bent over laughing. The last thing I heard them say, "What are we telling him for? He is useless."

Careful! You're making it look easy.

Thanks, guys! Someday, when I'm rich, perhaps I'll have to hire an actual handyman to fix all the broken stuff in the house...
