I am the oldest daughter of a pipe fitter originally from the sports crazy Pittsburgh area. Several years ago I married a man who worked in a variety of jobs that used his ability to fix things, create things, and his natural intelligence. I have always been a klutz, so my helping him is often a rerun of an "I Love Lucy" show! Luckily, he is a good sport.
