How Handy for you.

I'm lucky too. I've got a maintenance man here that you just have to mention something to and he gets it taken care of. No going through channels or filling out forms. Pretty good for a 300 residence place.

Thanks for replying, it was driving me nuts(er)..

His letters are hilarious and he wrote the most striking short description of the aftermath of an ice storm that I have ever read. I'm looking forward to reading the autobiography that just came out. I also am a HUGE Jane Austen fan - her perception about human behavior is still spot on after 200+ years.
i don't remember not knowing how to read also. i read most any thing. used to have a rule "if started a book had to be read to the end" i no longer do that, decided it was a waste of time on some books. reading is my teacher, my friend and my entertainment. good for you, sounds like you are the same.

I am another who does not remember not knowing how to read. Seems like I've always been able to and I read anything that has words.
