My kitchen faucet sprang a leak.  I would pull the spray head from the faucet, extending the hose, which is where the leak was, and get a little spritzing every time I turned on the water.  Well, the first remedy for the problem was duct tape…didn’t work.  The leaking water snaked through the mesh hose under the duct tape and then seeped around the tape and dripped down the spray head.  At least I didn’t get spritzed.  

Luckily, we had bought the faucet locally and it was a Moen, which means life-time guaranty.  Brent visited the Lumber Store, explained our problem, and got a new faucet to replace the old.  Now, handyman is not Brent’s middle name, but he has connections.  His walking buddy, Scott, came over to take a look at the situation and see what could be done.  Upon inspection all that was needed was to replace the hose and spray head and in about five minutes Scott had the hose switched out and my faucet was working without any spritzing or duct tape.

The point of all this is connections.  You’ve heard the saying, “It’s not what you know, but who you know.”  Well, I think there is something to that.  We need each other, not just for talk, but also for help.  So, today I’m glad Brent doesn’t walk alone.  Those “Good Old Boys” are good to have around!  Share your skills and strengthen the Good Life for those around you.  Thanks, Scott!
