So you own your home, something a lot of people strive for. Nice!! However, home ownership comes with a lot of maintenance items. Its more difficult if you are female and single. Simply put, handymen never return phone calls. So over the years, I've learned to become HANDY ... well, kind of!!! When I returned from vacation, 5 pickets from the fence were on the ground. Upon closer inspection, LOTS of nails were coming out. Can someone explain to me how this happens???
