I'm not handy. There's a lot of stuff I can't do, stuff that most men do every day or whenever it needs doing. I'm not proud of that but it has always been that way. When I was younger I may have been. I grew up with friends that could fix the family car if something went wrong. It was foreign to come and I had no interest. I mean I could change the oil in the car and gas it up but I couldn't do a ring and valve job, or do a brake job. Fixing a truck tire was major for me. I was trying to fix a flat on a big old White truck one time and could get the rim off. The boss told another helper to go out and show boggs how to change a tire. I still feel bad about it. .He told me to get out of the way, go on. You shouldn't be working at a place if you don't know what you're doing. He stared airing that tire up , just kept on airing. I was gasing up another truck but was watching. I don't know how much air he put in before the rim blew. It was awful. He lost all his front teeth, had a broken arm cut across his body all the way to his ribs, broke three or four of them. Wonder he hadn't been killed. That made my condition worse in dealing with vehicle repairs. Of course I didn't have any sense to start out with. I was not good at working with my hands. I always wanted to strap on that belt of tool and go fix something but i didn't know how. I'm that way with everything. I stopped by Goodwill the other day and bought what I thought was talking movies. It was a neat package although three discs were missing. In a case, it said fifty movies. James Cagney, Edmond G. Robinson, just a bunch of mystery and detective movies. I couldn't play them. Nor could I get my old video player to work. I didn't know how. My son came over and ask about buying a new player. Why don't you use the one you've got he asked. It don't work, say I. It was a Sony and I'm thinking it had to be reprogrammed to work with other TVs. He pulled out the stand on which all the mechanism sat and hooked it up properly. He stuck in one of the discs I had bought and behold and lo, there stood all my old gangster buddies from the thirties and forties, With Edmond G. still squinting that one bad eye. I haven't played any of them yet but I am glad didn't squander $4.99 on something I couldn't use but sometimes its downright embarrassing to be so dumb. How about you, are you handy? Can you do things around the house?
