Jimmy was a fixer by trade. Give him a leaky kettle and he’d put a neat patch on it. He even understood that modern thing called electric, and would put a new flex on a Iron in a jiffy. Yes Jimmy was sadly missed the day he passed on. A spoon of real life was he… His smile opened many a bedroom door.

  1. Tinkers have gone the way of rag and bone men, And those fellows with berets and bikes and strings of onions. I loved “His smile opened many a bedroom door.”

  2. I liked your take on the prompt, focusing on a character not in the picture. A good link between Jimmy’s passing and the passing of time.
