Hey Dad, it's only 220!

Yesterday I tried to replace the dead lightbulb in our closet. The socket, however, was so loose as soon as I wiggled the bulb it caused a short and we lost power in most of our house. After a quick trip to the hardware store today I re-strung the fuse (something that hasn't been done since the '50s) and mounted a new fixture.

Thanks for all the time you spent teaching me about home electrics Dad; it really paid off today!

And what about all of the things your mother taught you? After all, we built walls together, remember?
