For the record, all the household fix-it projects I just mentioned were accomplished by my father when my parents came to visit, but I was the dutiful supervisor and purchaser of any needed tools/supplies, so I would have counted them.
Anyhow, I am back in Columbus for now, so maybe I'll keep this up-to-date at least for a little while again.
