Handyman. This flyer posted on my block got me to thinking about Handymen (and women!). I have wistful ideas of what one is and it's basically a tall order that probably no one could fill. Picture a nostalgic image of Fred and Ethel Mertz (Yes they were landlords but still did repairs).

Some things I can fix but plumbing and electicity are out of my league and continuing to turn the faucet tighter and tighter does not seem to be eliminating the drip. I want someone with around the clock availability who is polite, knowledgable, and not outregeously expensive. Is that asking too much?

We technically have one for the building I live in, but I have to call the landlord first and then the he calls the handyman and then 3 or 4 more calls have to happen before anyone shows up. You get the idea. I have fantasies of all the things that would get taken care of if I had a handyman around.

Does anyone out there have a neighborhood handyman they love? That you'd recommend? Anyone have one in Venice?
