I love how they say he is good at fixing things and then say he messes up at fixing everything. Ha. I think I need something like the "man cave". Is he the only one allowed in it?

Sandi said...

The "man cave" is what James calls our family room. The walls are covered in barnwood and it gives it a masculine feel, so he started calling it his "man cave."
