Thanks for the laugh. I love that site!

The top photo reminded me of a landlord I once had. He fancied himself quite the handyman . He fixed everything with duct tape: door hinges, curtain rods, even the kitchen sink!

I can't seem to find them now, but I think "This Old House" used to have several slide decks of crazy repairs, particularly to old houses, that were both funny and disturbing.

Oh I bet! I've done quite a bit of fixing, renovating and remodeling - and I never cease to be amazed at what I find.

That boat trailer is incredibly scary. An easy way to kill the people behind them. Hopefully, whoever took the photo grabbed the trailer's license plate or the boat's reg stickers and reported them.
