RUSSIAN HILL HANDYMAN Co. | Week of 1 April ’12

1 April 2012

I was tempted to make an April Fool’s joke about my driving, but this is quite obviously a still from last month’s Alcatraz shoot on Russian and Nob Hills, reflecting an almost-universal desire among 94109/133 residents either to catch air on Taylor or Filbert at some point in their lives, or to permanently ban stunt filming on The Seven Hills.

Currently, I’ve still got a few slots open this week — spread throughout the week. The recent snows in Tahoe are calling my name, too, so if I manage to block out a day mid-week, I’ll be up there using my Squaw/Alpine/Homewood pass for the last month of the season. So, if you’re hoping for a “can you stop by today/tomorrow?” appointment, be forewarned that a day of no appointments is going to be looked at as a day of epic skiing this week.

In the meantime, given a few day’s notice, we can get you on the calendar for nearly anything you need done in early April.

Don’t misunderstand us; we didn’t work for this customer. We’re just really big fans of her own handiness and/or the work of her Handyman. Hopefully, she’ll trackback to us once we’ve posted this link and use us for future painting and installation work — and let’s get that television off the table and onto the wall!

Throughout the week, we’ll post links to Apartment Therapy House Tours or Scavenger Sales or any other ideas we find online that we think might be of interest to our customers, particularly for renters who want to make minor adjustments to their home, but haven’t thought about all of the other things we can do while we’re there — particularly with new faucets, shower handles and light fixtures that can turn a rental into a home, tout-de-suite!

Kudos, Kirstyn — your home is an inspiration to us!

Your patience is — as always — appreciated.

Just the good ol’ boys, never meanin’ no harm. Beats all you’ve ever saw, been in trouble with the law since the day they was born. Straight’nin’ the curve, flat’nin’ the hills. Someday the mountain might get ’em, but the law never will. Makin’ their way, the only way they know how, that’s just a little bit more than the law will allow. Just good ol’ boys, wouldn’t change if they could, fightin’ the system like a true modern day Robin Hood.

I never spend much time in school but I taught ladies plenty. It’s true I hire my body out for pay, hey hey. I’ve gotten burned over Cheryl Tiegs, blown up for Raquel Welch. But when I end up in the hay it’s only hay, hey hey. I might jump an open drawbridge, or Tarzan from a vine. ‘Cause I’m the unknown stuntman that makes Eastwood look so fine.

Ulysses, Ulysses – Soaring through all the galaxies. In search of Earth, flying in to the night. Ulysses, Ulysses – Fighting evil and tyranny, with all his power, and with all of his might. Ulysses – no-one else can do the things you do. Ulysses – like a bolt of thunder from the blue. Ulysses – always fighting all the evil forces bringing peace and justice to all.
