Snow and a quick story

Well, it almost made it down here. The forcast is still calling for snow this afternoon, so maybe I'll have a better pic tomorrow. :)

So, I was sewing along yesterday, on my 8th block!, and ran out of bobbin thread. I discovered that the bobbin winder on my machine went kaput. What a bummer. I was on a roll.

Hubby: Why don't you just wind it by hand?

Me: Do you know how long that would take?

Hubby: Here. I'll do it.

Winding. Winding. Winding.

Me: (Knowing he is even less patient than me) It's going to take forever, I'll do it.

Hubby: No, no, it's okay.

Winding. Winding...

Hubby: Wait a sec. I'll be right back.

God love him! He comes back in to my office carrying his power drill! Holds the bobbin on the end of the drill, and whzzzzzzz! Finished. Full bobbin.

I really dislike inventive guys like your husband. I'm so jealous. My Dad came from a line of folk who, if they didn't have a tool for the job, simply made the tool. Me, I can't even identify which tool to use let alone think laterally like that.

I think that Scriptor is selling himself short. In any case as he got most of the academic genes in the family I think it's only fair he left a few of the practical ones for his brother!

Was very impressed by your hubby, by the way.

Yes, it was an impressive moment, to be sure. Remember Scriptor, he is usually known as the duct tape king! He he he.
