Repair and Restoration: Make Do and Mend

Hello, my name is Alfred and this is my new blog. I am kind of new to all this internet business. My grandson taught me how to turn on a computer and to use the keyboard and how to navigate the internet. He recently suggested I start a blog but I refused because I didn't have a subject. My dad had always said to me that you should never start writing anything unless you have a subject. My grandson suggested that I write about my passion for repairing and restoring things. I believe we should make do and mend so I have taught myself how to fix many different types of things. I hope you enjoy my blog.
