In my life I have been very lucky. I have been known to make some delicious soup. Once someone tells me it was good (folks you can trust) I try to duplicate it and never can. I just start putting stuff that I like in a pot sometimes and it comes out great. Like making a tomato basil, shucks I love apples, I will put one in, no one knows unless I tell them.

Once the Organ in the church would not come on, the organist and pastor were worried, and minutes before service they asked if I would look at it. There was only time to smack it. So I looked at where the power supply was and gave the case a hard slap, and it came on. Usually in the old days, with mechanical switches, the problems were usually just a bad contact. So all it took was a good jarring to make it work. Most older folk have done that.
Does anyone out there remember hearing or watching “Ma & PA Kettle”? He always smacked the radio to get it working, or bounced his chair and the vibration would fix the radio. You very seldom have that problem with the new switches in electronics.
I have problems with this computer, I usually get it working and sometimes have no idea what I have done. So I am sort of a fixer around home and the motor home. Sherry and I have in the past been able to catch fish, but we are not fishermen. I have never been lucky at a lottery or that kind of thing, but I still buy the lottery ticket.
Is that luck or educated guesses?
I am skilled at certain things. I can do most anything with wood. I can build a complete home myself, except the Air Conditioning (I don’t mess with that). I can get an old car running but am lost at anything above a 1960 auto.
Paula, down near San Antonio, is good at finding things, she has a knack. Some folk are naturals with pets and training.
There are folks who can look at a blanket and make one. OR look at a dress and sew one. I had a cousin and a sister who could make coats.
Shirl my sister can put 10 lbs in a 5 lb sack, she is a good packer. Sherry has an uncanny knack for volume. She can hand me a bowl exactly the size I need for left overs. I’ve quit doubting her. LOL
I love being amazed at seeing what other folks can do. Ever watch a bee keeper? WOW!
(Some folks specialty is helping others escape!)
Do you have a specialty? Or a special interest?
Me, I can never estimate words and always use too many.
Each of us has a talent, some nurture it, some hide it and forget it. But we are all GOOD at something.
this is a great life. live upstairs and business downstairs. then Extra bedroom and supplies in trailer. Looks like a patio on the back side.
