What Karl said about shop class in schools.

After Andrew
the Homestead folks I knew who were handy and got a big insurance settlement

drove up to Orlando and brought back a trailer load of building supplies
fixed their house
paid off the mortgage
bought the wife a Suburban
bought themselves a Harley
changed payroll deduction to put what had been mortgage into 401 instead to keep the tax deduction and in effect pay themselves that interest

Then prayed for another "Saint Andrew".

I'll never forget that line of about twenty brand new "Hurricane Harleys" in the parking lot at work.


The un-handy didn't make out so well.
