How was it possible that it no longer worked. It just stopped one day, or maybe in the middle of the night. No amount of turning, pulling on knobs, or shaking it made any difference. Mom didn't have the answer and neither did Dad. He guessed it was up to him to discover what was broken inside it. After breaking it apart with a screwdriver and staring at the inside, he wasn't sure where to begin to fix it.
Do you have memories of a child breaking something in order to see how it worked, or perhaps thinking he/she could fix it?
