    Memories with my Tio I have a lot. One that stands out the most and made me learn how to use tools was when we reconstruction my parents shower. Taking him to home cheapo aka Home Depot was fun cause after we went to grab lunch. Adding the shower doors was a mission he told me ok hold the bar right there and I’ll use the drill to drill the bolt. I told him ok. My thumbs were never the same after helping him out.
