Now, here in the mountains there is only...moi! Yes, I've become the assistant electrician, mechanical assistant, assistant carpenter. Not that I sit idle. With the animals in my care, I have more than enough to do. But if Grant is busy repairing or creating something and he calls, I have to assist.
I suppose it's never to late to learn. I'm learning all about two-stroke engines; negative and positive electrical wires, air cleaner elements and oil filters.
I always remember him telling me in the early years of our marriage: the FIRST thing a mechanical apprentice learns is which is the number ten spanner.
Last week he was busy with some task and called out: "Jo, bring me the number 10 spanner." And guess what? I knew exactly which tool he was waiting for. Not bad for someone who, up until a year ago, didn't know the difference between a star screwdriver and a pair of pliers!
No. 10 spanner!
