DARE TO REPAIR




Yessiree Bob--Dare to Repair. Gotta say I love this book, inherited from Cris' mother when she moved out of her home in Vallejo. I've used it several times to look up simple home repairs-----and then called "Earl"--our go-to-guy. However, two days ago the garbage disposal jammed. Sounded like a jet engine dying a terrible death. I was bummed--too much else going on to even care about it. Then it starts to smell funny in the kitchen sink area. Ahhhhh. Time to do something about it. I was going to call Earl and then remembered this book. Three easy steps to try BEFORE buying a new disposal. And TADA--I fixed it myself.

Aren't you just so proud of me? Cris was :)

Course you fixed it yourself--you own AND know how to use power tools. I wasn't even worried for a second.
