The Invisible Service Call

People ask: “Why don’t you post more stuff to your blog?”

Simple answer: “Most of the jobs I do on a daily basis are neither photogenic
nor the stuff of Shakespearean Soliloquies.” (Knew ye not of mine many mighty
Shakespearean labours? Why fie upon thee!)

Truth be told the daily bread and butter of a handyman consists of necessary mundane
maintenance and repair tasks known as THE SERVICE CALL

For example, a short list of routine maintenance household chores:

So expect no pictures, no glamorous closeups, as this list is just an
example of routine everyday fixit stuff that fills my calendar.

As much as I enjoy fueling the insatiable appetite of the Internet
with new wonders and curiosities, I must tend to the needs of
my clients as well.

Please be patient with me. Blog posts come as often as possible.
I have one gear and I am in it now…..
