I’m Married to MacGyver

Tom is many things to me. He is my husband, best friend, lover, encourager, protector, the father of my children. There is so much more I can say but I’m trying not to make some of you OD on sugar.

We have had things break before around our house and Tom’s handy and can fix many things with the proper tools. What I didn’t know until today was I’m married to MacGyver.

Do you remember that show where MacGyver can fix anything with ordinary things around him?

Tom fixed the wireless microphone at church with straw and duct tape. I was quite impressed.

It’s amazing what you can do with a little imagination.

Straw and duct tape?? He's amazing!

I'm fascinated by people who know how to fix things. I'm always pleasantly surprised when my husband moves different colored wires around and gets something to work without electrocuting himself. (Not quite the compliment you gave Tom, but close enough.) :)

Seriouslys, our guys are awesome!!

My dad is like that - he took about the tractor on the farm when he was 13, just to prove he could put it back together. We always have had lists of things for him to fix when he came to visit.

That is so cool and I loved that show. Everytime I see that guy I still associate him with his character. My dad is one of those people who also can fix anything with anything! He says he's a jack-of-all-trades, can do many things but expert at none. Of course that's not true either because he really is an expert at anything machanical, electrical, carpetry, boats, airplanes, cars, toys, and even people. I loved your comparison and I'm sure Tim doesn't mind a bit either. Remember to add handsome to the list! :)

Scarlet - You're so funny. I think you're pretty awesome also.

Dawn - Taking an entire tractor apart is amazing at any age but 13 is very impressive.

Chelle - It's the truth - duct tape is man's best friend.

Reva - Yes, he is handsome. I didn't forget I just didn't want to make the list too long or state the obvious. :)

Just goes to show you duct tape can be used for anything! But the straw? Interesting.

This made me smile since I tell my sister she's married to MacGyver. Her hubby painted the roof of their barn by building scaffolding out of an old demo car. Painted a section, got down and moved the car a few feet, got back up and painted some more.
