He was a master at jerryrigging.
Some people might call him a hoarder..
But, you could make a lot of birdhouses with all the busted tae kwon do boards.
You never know when your lawn mower wheels will fall off and you need to put different, better ones on.
To jerryrig is to do something in a unconventional way.
A more recent term is to McGyver it.
Sometimes, he'll say "It's not the right way, but it'll work".
The thing is, sometimes "the right way" is not always better and many times more expensive.
He turned an old playhouse into a chicken coop.
He used scrap wood and a plastic koi pond to build a habitat for Kiddo's turtle.
No longer have the turtle so he is converting it into a nice home for the ducks.
The ideas that he comes up with are great.
He comes from a line of jerryriggers.
His father did it.
His father's father did it.
And now him.
Who is the jerryrigger?
I affectionately call him Honeyman.
