Adam Knight, Handyman????

As some of you may have noticed, I haven’t been posting as much here recently and for that I apologize.  I have been super busy with my new house and trying to get all the little odd jobs around the house fixed.  Growing up as a kid, there was no project too large or too small for my dad.  So now that I’m living in a real house, and I see all the little things that needed fixing, I took it upon myself to go to Lowes and Home Depot, and fix them myself.  Now most of them are done and I have come to realize, that I am not as good at this stuff as my dad, but at least I got it done.

First, I now have a yard and my first job was to fix a hand me down lawnmower so I could mow my own lawn.

A few sprays of Carb cleaner, a new spark plug, new air filter and new blade…about $35 and I have a mower that runs like brand new.

Next there were holes in the wall, and I learned how to repair drywall.

The people that lived here before me, ran over a sprinkler head and it was gushing water down the street, so I had to fix that too.

And there were a couple of other little things, but after doing these odd jobs, I felt like Bob Villa.  So like an idiot I bragged to my friends about it, and therefore they decided I could help them with their weekend projects… So Saturday I spend part of my afternoon unloading 2 pallets of Sod for Alli and Jordan…my back still hurts.

So lesson learned…no more bragging about how handy I am.  I need to stick to DJing and posting on
