with the pandemic loosening up a bit, my parents were finally able to book tickets to visit in the first time in nearly two years. the main reason for the trip was to get them acquainted with their granddaughter which they hadn't seen for much too long. however i had other plans.
i'm not the best handy man, i mean i'm no idiot, but there are just some household items that i've never encountered before and small projects that would be easier with two people. two items i wanted help from my dad included a leaking outside spigot and installing a screen door on the porch. as i mentioned i could have done the door myself, it was just easier with help, but i had no idea about the spigot. luckily dad new exactly what was going on. both projects involved only one, initial trip to the hardware store, which never happens and both projects were a success! there's now a functional screen door on the porch and the outside spigot doesn't leak.
i absolutely love my dad and doing these small projects around the house with him filled a hole in my heart and had developed with the distance this pandemic created.
love you pop.
