All in good time.
He is quite the handyman. Do you remember the film Six Days Seven Nights (1998) with Harrison Ford and Anne Heche? There is a scene in it that makes me laugh every time. If you know the storyline they crash a small airplane on an island and this is what happens when Anne's character comes to her senses:
Robin: Whoa. What happened?
Quinn: It crumpled the landing gear when we hit.
Robin: Well, aren't you gonna fix it? I mean can't we, can't we reattach it somehow?
Quinn: Sure, we'll, like, glue it back on.
Robin: Aren't you one of those guys?
Quinn: What guys?
Robin: Those guy guys, you know, those guys with skills.
Robin: Yeah. You send them into the wilderness with a pocketknife and a Q-tip and they build you a shopping mall. You can't do that?
Sometimes I have thought about testing this theory; sending A into the wilderness with his pocketknife and a Q-tip to see if he could in fact build a shopping mall. Not that I have anything to do with a mall. There are plenty of other things I would like him to build.
If there is too much of wood and tools in this post for you then let me end it with spring blossoms. I was gardening like a mad woman last week and realised that I accidentally cut a branch that was alive. I saved it, put it in water, begged its forgiveness and kept in the kitchen window so I could talk to it. It's blooming now.
