My Life is a Sitcom
by Yale Schwartz

I'm not sure how to introduce this collection of stories since I'm just starting it. So for now let's just call it a random collection of memories I'd like to share.

Jose and Jose

The house needed to be painted.
A good handyman knows when to hire professionals.
Just be sure to get recommendations
A Not-So-Handyman and a Downspout

A basketball game, a house hunting episode, a camping trip, a minor home repair ...
an unfortunate sequence of events
Handymen and Their Wives

She knew my track record as a handyman and she warned me not to use Krazy Glue.

On a Toboggan

Nina and I went to the Concord with Edith and Teck for a winter's vacation. We didn't know till we got there that the Concord was undergoing a transition from being a resort to being a timeshare. On that particular weekend, we were the only paying customers. Everyone else was there enjoying a free weekend in exchange for sitting through a sales pitch. "At least we didn't have to sit through those meetings." But there was little else to do. The staff was cut to the minimum, so we had to make our own fun.
And that's how we were introduced to ... the Toboggan (audio).

And what if you don't really like this fellow.

Well, Ron was not a likeable fellow!      So I was in a quandary.
