Work on more than one thing at once? Doesn't everyone?
Actually, I do know people who focus on one thing at a time, both of my brothers seem to. But if you only do one thing, then when do you get to think about what you are doing, if you are already doing it? When I start working on something else, it clears my mind for whatever else I was doing, it is like stepping away and seeing it from some distance.
HELLO WRATTERS!! THIS IS HOW YOU BUILD JAKES RAT RODDED TANKS. AFTER TRACING CARDBOARD AND CUTTING AN OLD STORAGE BIN LID THIS IS WHAT YOU GET. THAT AND SOME JED CLAMPETTED WHITTLING TO GET A SEMI SNUG FIT. AS I TRACED IT OUT AND STARTED CUTTING IT. I COULD HEAR MY DAD IN MY EAR SHOUTING..GUIDE..GUIDE GUIDE!! IT'S WHAT HE WOULD YELL WHEN WE WOULD BE CUTTING ALUMINUM SIDING. IF YOU HAD JAGGED LINES HE'D SAY..."WHAT YOU DO BITE ON THIS?!? MAN I MISS HIM.
THEN A LIMB FELL OFF THE TREE IN MY BACKYARD. JUST MISSED ME. MMMM. COINCIDENCE?!?
SO AFTER THAT I PAINTED IT. MORE PICS ON THE WAY. HAVE A GET DAY Y'ALL. AND CRANK UP THAT FALL OUT BOYS "TANKS" I MEAN "THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES" KEEP BUILDIN'!! PEACE
Love the memory from Pops.
I feel lucky I grew up learning how to do so much with my hands and tools from my dad, grandfathers, uncles, etc. I was telling Queenfish the other day that many times when I am working on something, I feel them all right there with me working (or supervising) the project. I am very blessed to have what they all taught me and always feel confident that I can backyard engineer most anything I set my mind to. Other friends don't have those experiences, and I know that if I asked them to find the metric crescent wrench for me, they would actually try to find it (but probably return with vise grips) .
Listen to your pops brother!!!
HELLO WRATTERS!! NOT MUCH GOING ON TODAY. I'M OFF TOMORROW SO I'LL BE BACK AT THE BIKE.
I STARTED THIS PROJECT YESTERDAY TO THE DISMAY OF MY LOVE. I'M GONNA ADD BLACK HARDWARE, KNOBS AND PICK GUARD. THINKING OF A RED OR ORANGE PICK GUARD TO MAKE IT POP. ANY SUGGESTIONS?!? SO CRANK UP THAT LAKESIDE "IT'S ALL THE WAY LIVE" AND... GET TA BUILDIN' !! PEACE
