Nice Rack

Look what I did! It's hard to see, but this weekend I hung a little tool holder rack in my garage, along with the weed whacker holder and two garden hose holders. (Oh, and that snazzy shelf? Yep, did that all by myself a while ago. Which is totally a phrase that a 3-year-old would use when, say, dressing himself.)

When it comes to being handy, Pete and I both suck. Sure, he has brute strength, and I have the patience to put things together. But, Pete can get very angry at inanimate objects very fast, and I have zero strength to lift things, and usually mess it up and have to redo it. And this is why we almost always hire out handiwork.

So, I'm rather proud of my racks. It's all level and everything! Just call me Handy Manny. (Okay, really, please don't call me that-I hate that show.)

I watched part of an episode of Handy Manny once, and the fact that his name isn't Handy Andy or Mandy, something with a "d" really bugs me, plus the show is kind of annoying. And, by the way, good job with all your handy skills!

I hate Handy Manny, too. A lot. Especially that whiney saw. Is it the saw that's whiney? And when Manny answers the phone, his answer is like five minutes long: "Hello, Handy Manny's Repair Shop. You break it, we fix it. This is Manny. How can I help you?" If I was calling, I would have hung up. Anywho, good job on installing the rack. I get really proud of myself for installing stuff, too, which doesn't happen too often, since Ben is Mr. Handy. Handy Benny.
