I genuinely wouldn’t consider myself to be a MacGyver.
However, I would say that I have a lot in typical with Nancy Drew. When I was growing up I used to study a lot of those mystery novels & I absolutely loved the stories about investigating old, regal estates on a mission to discover hidden treasures or family heirlooms. I am not going to say that I have consistently wanted to be Nancy Drew… But for as long as I can remember he has been a hero of mine. This is why I was absolutely a little happy when our family offered myself and others the harshly stressful job of trying to reuse our family heirlooms from our ancient family property. No 1 had lived in this ice-cold condo for many decades already. The house sat vacant, unheated, & untreated by new air quality control systems. As you can imagine, when I walked inside the air was harshly stagnant & musty. It smelled prefer mold, mildew, & dust. There wasn’t much that I could do about the unlucky air quality & odors because I realized that the central heating & cooling system had stopped working 20 years ago. No matter what I did to the control unit, I wasn’t going to flush the unpleasant indoor air out. As such, I got to work trying to build a fire in the traditional wood burning fireplace. Thank God, I opened the flu instantly. As soon as I did, a wood box came tumbling down into the fireplace hearth which was full of family photos, silver, & jewelry. By accident, I had found the hidden treasures in the fireplace chimney – just prefer Nancy Drew.
