Why, yes... Yes, I *can* assemble things!
It just takes me a lot longer than the *normal* male...
There's a reason why I don't do home repair jobs... I suck at it. Give me a keyboard, and I'm fine. Give me a wrench, and something's going to get broken or someone's going to get hurt. Given that as the backdrop, I'm proud to show off our latest do-it-yourself job... Our backyard gazebo!
It's 11 x 11 feet, bronzed iron, and the sucker weighs a ton. It was all we could do to get the package home in our PT Cruiser. Sue and I started putting it together yesterday, and we actually finished in one day, with no leftover (or missing) parts, and we're still speaking to each other. Though it was 98 degrees yesterday, my arms are sunburnt, and my legs ache from all the ladder climbing.
