My father-in-law was notorious for always having a roll of duct tape handy. He believed that with duct tape, a hammer, and a screwdriver you could fix anything. He had a roll of duct tape in his car, his tool shed, his junk drawer, at his workbench and in his basement. He would duct tape a radiator hose, the handle on a rake, his lawn mower, cracked windows, the wheel on the barbecue, electric wires, the flue on the chimney, even the Christmas Tree - you name it. If it needed repair, duct tape wouldn’t be far away. For the most part the fixes were temporary and only lasted a day or two at best.
