three panel #6

I have inherited the job of official house toy repair expert from my father. I challenge myself every time to make the evidence that the toy was ever broken as subtle as possible. Dad came up with some brilliant uses for screws but he also had a go to favorite that was a bit less... subtle. It was an epoxy strip that was blue and yellow and was activated when the two colors were mixed to make a heavy green putty. My kids still play with a Luke Skywalker that I managed to both decapitate and amputate an arm off of. He now sports a thick green hoodie and shoulder sleeve. That glue makes an appearence as a nod to you, Dad. Thanks for all of the repairs (I know your pain now). The rest should speak for itself.
