Recently I’ve had a couple of deaths in the family. (Black cloud) I’ve been entrusted to make urns for the remains. It seems that I am trusted with an important job. (Slice of silver) This will be the fifth, 6th and 7th urn I...

Born in 1953.
My father was a perfectionist to a large degree in that he always expected us to do our best and to think for ourselves.
My mother was a homemaker. (She was the one that made it home)!
I have two older brothers, an older sister and a younger sister and brother.
My folks required us to participate in mental exorcises such as logic puzzles, wordplay (like punday night where everything at the dinner table had to be said in the form of a pun), math puzzles etc.
Many a time I have been cracked on the head and would hear dad say "use that lump on the top of your shoulders for something besides holding up your hair and hat"!
I will not often repeat a project (unless there is money in it) because I usually get bored once I have learned something.
I am willing to try most anything once. (As long as it is legal and doesn't hurt)
I learned long ago that you should always do your best but that there will always be a job like fixing up the old farm truck, it is not worth turning it into a show rig. Good enough is just that - Good enough!
-- Folly ever comes cloaked in opportunity!
