My father passed on his love of all things mechanical and believed that his daughter needed her own set of tools as she headed off to college. He grew up in an era where nothing was wasted and little was disposable, so he attached an old hatchet handle to a hammer head with a couple of nails. Today there is a special tool for every possible endeavor, but this hammer is still in use. It reminds me that often, problems can be solved with what is at hand. And if not, perhaps you need a new perspective and a little ingenuity.
