Meet My Husband

His name is Jack.

He can do many things. He can perform Advanced Cardiac Life Support. He can put in an IV like nobody's business. He can calculate medication dosages in the blink of an eye.

He can put new brakes on the car, fix the leaky plumbing in the house, and install new appliances.

He's great at killing bugs and removing scary frogs and lizards when they invade the house.

He can also score and stain concrete flooring, hang drywall, install baseboards, tile a shower, wire a house, and many other very handy things.


He can put up vinyl siding.

Yes, that's my husband Jack. Of All Trades, that is. We just call him Wonderful. Some people call him Steve. But I usually call him Tuddie. And THAT is for another post.

(By the way, doesn't the vinyl on the ceiling of my front porch look great? Thanks, Tuddie!)

Sounds like a handy man to have around! LOL

How fun to see your house taking shape.

Teeny said...

AWESOME...wanna swap ;-)

Debbie said...

Love all the house posts! Your place is really coming along. I'm sure it seems like forever to you, but it sure is going to be nice.

The calf is so cute! I just love baby farm animals...well any babies really.

Cynthia said...

Isn't it GREAT having such a handy man. My dh is like that as well. We're watching your house progress and wondering if we really could attempt to build our own house sometime!

Ginger said...


Okay, sorry. Just the frustration of the day (okay, WEEKS) took over for a moment. I'm good now.

I wrote a comment but I think I closed before actually posting it. That's what happens when you read blogs at 1 in the morning.

The vinyl siding looks great! I was a bit worried, however, at you introducing your dh as Jack! I thought someone had kidnapped your blog. :)

Laura in MO said...

Great post honoring your hubby. :) Very nice.

Also, thought I would let you know that I did make an Asian Chicken Salad. I attempted the dressing you found for me (thanks again for that!!) and I didn't have quite the right ingredient I don't think.... it just wasn't quite right. But, I did manage to make a salad that was pretty yummy. You had mentioned you would like to see it.... it is on my blog - on the Recipe Blog, actually. But you can access it through my regular blog. :)

It looks great! Yes, I LOVE being married to a handy man. BTW, I LOVE your floors!

Kristine said...

Hah, but can he catch a little black snake?

Ginger said...

Obviously he cannot. The little black snake is still at large in my house.

His one failing. I'll forgive him. Unless the snake attacks me.
