    Uh oh……. That’s a bit harsh. Too bad. Start taking it down.

    I’m sure I couldn’t put up shelves. But I can make curtains. And I’m pretty good with a glue gun. And duct tape.

    My particular specialty is calling in someone who knows what they’re doing.

    My specialty is showing appreciation. Seriously. If you don’t like it do it yourself

    I don’t consider myself handy, but sometimes I surprise myself.

    Handy enough, but you’ll never see me working on the plumbing (other than plunging) or on the electricity.

    Handy at coming up with things for my husband to do. Last one was a shelf in my kitchen……turned out great.

    Yep.
    .
    This reminded me of when I was a teen my mom had a red maple tree that she wanted transplanted yearly. After the 5th year, I told her that she should pick out a permanent spot cuz it was getting too big to move.

    I get handier the more I pluck up the courage to tackle. I’ve unclogged drains, mended a leaking toilet, put together bookshelves and the desks my son and I use, and just this week fixed the leak in the shower. Yeah, I guess I’m pretty handy.

    Like CEdward, I’m pretty handy, but I do know my limits.

    I’m with you. But then, unlike me, my husband is a perfectionist – measure 15 times and cut once. He’d have a blueprint drawn out to put up a shelf.But everything he does is great.

    Yes, I take pride in learning every skill that is offered to me. Now that I do some Medieval re-enacting it somes in handy to sew, knit and embroider. I’ve always enjoyed cooking, painting, ceramics, stained glass etc.


    As a homeowner (and landlord for a while in our first place) I picked up skills in plumbing and other minor repairs (and rewired all the phones and electronics back when they just used a lighter gauge of wire. I only remember building one shelf unit from scratch and it currently lives in my hobby room upstairs, but I fixed all of the built-in shelves that leaned or wobbled in my various houses.


    I now hire guys to do some of the heavy work, but still supervise to see that it’s done right. The man in my life has a business in heating and air, but still single-handedly installs new units and is handy enough to fix any kind of machine. I often helped him in jobs over the years and always admire men who are capable (handy). My own sons were taught to use hand tools as well as simple sewing repairs and enough cooking to make a meal- daughter too (but as the youngest she’s always been a problem). My daughter is not quite 50 but married 3 times.
