My Husband, My Hero

It's the little things. At the end of the day, a bucket of flowers or an extravagant card really don't tell the story. My husband can get into some of the romantic gestures, but he is too practical for much of those costly, short lived tokens. Just yesterday, he solved a huge (to me) problem that had developed in my kitchen. It seems so simple....but the lid to the cooking pot I use the most frequently broke. The welded handle fell apart. The handle could not be repaired. Without the lid (how can I remove the lid easily without the knob) the pan was useless. Yesterday, I came home from a long day of errands (involving my elderly father) I came home to a lid with a new knob. My ever practical husband purchased a special drill bit and replaced the old damaged knob with a wooden one. My husband is my hero....yet again.

He's usually pretty good at problem solving. Sometimes it takes a little while...but eventually there is a solution.

@Morleyhunt It seems almost impossible to find the correct size lid for things for sale...especially for my cast iron skillet, everything is too big or too small.

@JolietJake I've spent weeks checking thrift shops. I measure and search...no special trips, but when I'm nearby I check it out.

That was sweet of him! My husband would tell me to buy a new pot.

My husband told me....it might be less expensive to buy a new pot....then he found out what the replacement would set him back....he's glad he repaired it.

@Morleyhunt good cookware is expensive. I have a set that I purchased 30+ years ago and when I look at what it would cost to get the same set today it makes my eyes bleed.

Such solutions mean a lot when it's your favourite pot. My Mum had a 'new' handle on a pot and it was half a wooden cotton-reel. It worked wonderfully well for years.

Mine bought me two new tops for the lids that had also broken. They fit a treat and I had no idea that they exisisted as such because they are never on the shelves for you to see them.

No doubt about it. I have thought that he is a keeper since I first met him....back in 1974.

He sure is. He has been so supportive while we are going through all the challenges with my elderly father.

I'm not passing him on. He's been my better half for almost 42 years. He's tolerated all the nonsense that goes with an elderly father/father inlaw.

They're the best kimd of heros, aren't they? He sounds a lot like my husband. He can be very romantic, but he shows his love in more practical ways. Like laying a brick walkway from the house to the garage so my feet won't get wet.

We need to show our menfolk that we appreciate their efforts. I want my husband to know just how special he is.

I love the fact that you guys did not just throw it out and buy a new one and your husband found a way to fix it! I have a pan that my father welded a handle on. It is heavy so the pot won't stay upright if there isn't anything in it. I've had people pick on me and say to buy a new one but it still works so I am happy to have it to use. I hate sending things to the landfill.
