Feeling like a grown up

I bought my wife a new ceiling fan for Christmas last year, and I finally got around to installing it today.  I realize that's a pretty serious lag between the time she opened it and the time she got to enjoy it, but I've heard that there are some husbands out there who've taken even longer.  I also have to mention that my dad passed away a little more than a year ago, and I've been really surprised and how lost I am without his advice on this kind of thing.  Not only was he fantastic as a handy-man, he did most of the original installation work on my house, so he could usually remember exactly what weird problems I was likely to encounter.  In any case, I hope I made him proud today.  At the very least I'm sure he was laughing while I bungled through things exactly the same way he would have without a little help.  Just so you don't think I'm fibbing, here's a photo of the fan in operation!  So far it hasn't shorted, caught fire, or fallen out of the ceiling, so I think I'm alright!  ~JD Royal
