"Hold the light on what I'm working on, not on me"... I learned a lot in the shop, barn, field, etc... mostly from Dad, also from brothers, neighbors, etc. No school can teach that stuff. I still learn something new every couple of weeks! Sometimes I wish I hadn't learned so much, because i don't want to pay someone to do something I can do myself, and I can fix almost anything. That makes for a long to-do list.

never thought of it that way - but you're 100% right about the downside to knowing how to do everything!!!

Add five siblings who DON'T know how to do ANYTHING, and that list gets five times longer.

 Re: Dad's and sons...light is a tool, so is stern talk.. in reply to schriffs, 11-14-2012 20:34:04's a generational thing about where to aim the light. Your Grandpa taught me that.....just like my usual job on a WC engine overhaul was cleaning up parts, and that's how I learned what made them tick. For my YT Mag friends, Schriffs (who posts here very occasionally), is my middle son, JD diesel tech, excellent diagnostician, and like his two brothers....the best sons any Dad could have. It's fun to see how they always work together, and with their three sisters as well.
