Little victories are nice

As some of you have probably surmised, I am mechanically challenged. My favorite tool is the computer keyboard. That's why little victories like installing a spacesaver microwave today make me relish in the small things that make life important. And it makes me appreciate the magnitude of the work you folks do, diagnosing and fixing people's heating and plumbing problems.

I am proud of my herculian Bob Vila efforts today and can now relax with a couple of cold ones and dread tomorrow, when Monday sees a ton of work on my desk to be done.

But when I say that the little things are important I truly mean them. You folks keep people safe and alive, warm and happy. And it could be something as little (or as simple) as diganosing a stuck vent -- and pulling out the debris. I salute your work and most of all -- your friendship.

Just my thoughts on this blessed Palm Sunday.

    tip for installing

    a space saver microwave
    use template to put up the back & drill the holes in cabinet above, then double-contractor plastic garbage bag, wrap a couple of sofa cushions, and put it on top of the range, underneath, then you can put the microwave on top of the cushions, and maneuver it into place by yourself – it hard to do it with two people as there is no room to work, and by yourself it’s too heavy – hence the cushions

    double-contractor bag wrapped cushions, – are a major tool for doing lot’s of things – not the least of which being, working under a sink, put them down outside the sink and you wont kill your back on the edge, or under the knees when you work forward

    there is even someone out there, selling heavy vinyl wrapped cushions – to work on
