You borrow money to put towards repairs, and there are no monthly payments or interest charges. When it comes to the changing of seasons, there’s nothing more exciting than the summer-to-fall transition. With it, the time of year brings stunning foliage and plenty of autumnal flavors, like cinnamon, apple, and pumpkin spice.

In the first two years of the show, Pamela Anderson played the part of Tim’s Tool Girl, Lisa, on Tool Time, but left the show to focus on her role on the syndicated series Baywatch. Her last episode as a series regular was “The Great Race”, which aired on May 19, 1993. Tim’s new assistant, electrician Heidi Keppert, played by Debbe Dunning, replaced Anderson as the Tool Time Girl for the following third season, starting with “Maybe Baby”, which aired on September 15, 1993.
