Well guys, it’s up to us to pass these skills along to our sons, daughters, grandkids. Someone needs to show them. That’s us. My dad wasn’t very handy and I would laugh when he would bring a tool home from Sears and mom would ask him what he was planning on doing with that?? Luckily I had Uncle Tom who was quite the handy man and I helped him out doing little jobs on the weekend. I passed alot of this “knowledge” onto my sons and I can see them passing it on to my 8 grandchildren. It has to start somewhere.
