I have been very fortunate in my life. I have had good folk to cover for me. You know the term ‘watch my back.’ I have always had good folk working for me. When I was building a very nice home for my Brother Jr. It called for some tricky brick work. My nephew was an EXPERT (In capitols) with brick. He was my first choice. He turned down the job. He was very honest. “Uncle Jack, I might start the job then leave in the middle of it. You know I have a big drug problem it gets the best of me at times. I won't do you that way.” He recommended a mason.
I met the mason on the job. He looked it over and we agreed on a price. I liked him from the first. “I will call you tomorrow to tell you how many to order. The brick you have picked looks different with each cooking, so we need to order enough for the whole house on the first delivery. Make sure you tell them you want them all from the same batch.” He paused for a minute. “YOU do what I ask and I will make you look good.” This was my second big house, but the first time I had heard that line, “I will make you look good.” BTW he did. It was a beautiful job.
In my every business and trade, someone made me look good. My English composition is TERRIBLE (I know, you never noticed!). My sentences run on like I have no idea what a period is. If I like a word like Hot Dog, I might just capitalize it. I did finish ten years in school with good grades, but I certainly did not pay enough attention to English.
Now in my fiction books, I like my simple ideas, but fact is I do not write it well. BUT thank God for Proof readers, They make me look good. (In my opinion!)
Yeah, and every day when Sherry and I walk hand in hand for a couple miles, SHE MAKES ME LOOK GOOD!
Again, thanks for stopping by the Shipslog, I know you could be doing something else but I do appreciate your time.
Nite Shipslog .
This was the Rambler 1957 Cross country. We owned one of these. Loved the car!
