My husband, amazes me on so many levels. He is the smartest man I know. His father was a very smart guy and a thinker, but he wasn’t at all handy with tools. The story goes that he only owned a hammer and a screw driver and never used them.
My husband, Dean is a thinker too. I remember when our son was about 7 or 8 and Dean took him to work for the day. Hal watched intently as his dad work at his desk. Then he asked him this question in disbelief ” So they pay you just to think?” Â Of course Dean responded “yes they pay me to think” . We all got a good laugh out of that one.
Somehow along the way though, Dean taught himself how to be handy; and this was all before the internet age! My theory is he inherited his mom’s genes. She grew up on a remote dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains that was pretty much sufficient. Â Dean also had lots of friends who grew up on farms and I’m sure he was always there to lend them a hand. Dean likes to say to me, ” tell me what you want and I’ll make it happen” and he does, better than the plans I had in mind. Because he is a thinker and a doer! Â I can’t think of anything he can’t do. Â Feeling blessed to have him as my husband. Love that man!
