This is Monday's assignment in my Yahoo class. I am to write about a talent I wish I had!!!!!! Let me see...there are many...HaHa!!!

I suppose what I would MOST like to be talented at is "Putting things together, like woodworking or tile fixing."

I would LOVE to be able to go to the "Home Depot Store" which is every Handyman's dream, and be able to put in tiles in my sink area and buy a doorframe and sand it down or something. I have seen my Mom do these things so I know it can be done by a woman! Mom was very capable of doing things without any money back in the days of raising us kids!

A young boy I used to babysit, now MAKES furniture in Kansas City, Missouri! He is really good too! He has sent me pictures and all! I feel OLD now that he is ALL GROWN UP! Yikes!

I am not skilled at all when it comes to handywork. That means EVEN putting in Lightbulbs!  Oh, I could probably do it and I have seen it been done before, but I protest and gets done by another sister. I have my ways at times.

If I could put a sink in for myself or Mom sometime, I think I would become the "All-American Girl" in Mom's eyes at least and be able to do no wrong, even on top of my illness and everything.

Mom has been the handywoman in the family so far, but now that Julie has her own house and has been married almost eight years, SHE has become handywoman also!

My time will come I guess.

Nice to see someone talking about talent instead of harping about attitude for a change.

I work one day a week in a Home Depot and on my break I wander around the store, imagining myself putting all those wonderful things together for my home. But, I also know my real talents for that don't go much further than imagination. I would most likely have to end up paying some construction guy hundreds of dollars to make my home beautiful. Dollars, that don't linger long in my purse, so imagination is all it will be for some time.

a talent i wish i had was to be able to read music or learn an instrument like the fiddle or the cajun accordion. but i am afraid my arthritic fingers wouldn't let me do it. the only instrument i CAN play is the spoons! LOL cute write; i admire those who can make furniture or other crafty items! they are super talented, those guys and gals!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in burleson, karen lynn. :D

happy july fourth; be safe and have a BALL!
