Ingenuity

I don't have anything to blog about so I have decided to use an email I sent to my Son-In-Law.
This is serious stuff.


Hi SIL,

Thanks for the money. It came yesterday and I cashed it today. I am so happy to get it. I should be paying you for all the things you have done for me.
Before I start sounding too mushy here I want to tell you that the lock on the gate no longer works and I may need to hire another handy man. JUST KIDDING !!!!

I'm not kidding about the part about it not working. I discovered the gate standing wide open and when I closed it, the lock will not hold the latchie thingie or whatever it's called. I cannot see one solitary thing wrong with it. It looks perfect, but it does not work at all. So I am back to putting the meat thermometer in it to hold it shut. Did I ever tell you that a long time ago before you fixed it, I was using the meat thermometer to hold the lock shut, one of those meter readers said to me, "another use for a meat thermometer, I like that". It was a woman meter reader and us women are smart about such things. It's sort of like using a butter knife for a screw driver sort of thing. Men just don't do things that way and I'm pretty positive an engineer, such as yourself, would not even consider it.

Looks like I just wrote my next post for my blog. LOL.

Tanks again,
MIL/MOM
