Mechanically challenged Gadberrian wonders why all those parts left over

He sympathizes with the plight of Chuck Hinman. Fortunately, even today in beautiful Downtown Gadberry, two great guys take pity in a pinch

By Charles Marshburn

I can fully sympathize with Chuck Hinman because I was born with the same handicap. Fortunately for me, I had two friends in high school that were born with mechanical blessings and always stepped in and moved me out of the way when I had an urge to attempt something mechanical. They moved me so they didn't have extra work trying to come behind me and fix what I messed up! I have two great guys next door here in beautiful downtown Gadberry that have taken over for my high school friends. I never could figure out why I had so many extra parts left over when I attempted to fix anything.

Carol Perkins: Shopping networks are addictive

For this veteran shopper, watching shopping shows on Tv is is not chosen option. She says, 'I like seeing, smelling, tasting, hearing, or touching a potential purchase so shopping online is my second choice' but she's fascinated by the hosts, and the skills they need. "Working at a home shopping network would require the skill of being able to take a gemstone and make it as appealing as a diamond. To assure a big woman that even she can look wonderul in the newest pair of skinny jeans (won't happen). Most of all, it would require the ability to talk nonstop. As a matter of fact, I often mute the TV because of the constant talk. What can be said about a jar with a candle in it?'

Last (up to) 200 Carol Perkins columns - reading them all wouldn't be a bad way to spend this Sunday.

By Carol Perkins

Somewhere at this very minute are women, sitting in recliners or propping up in bed with a stack of bed pillows with phone in hand, watching one of the home shopping networks. These shows are addictive.

Just of late I have been watching both channels looking at the Christmas items and thinking of gifts to give others. The more I watch, the more I want to watch. If I veer too far from the TV, I might miss a daily special.

Chuck Hinman: IJMA. Changing Oil

Changing Oil. Chuck decides at age 42 to change the oil in his car, knowing that his Dad always said he should "stay ten feet away from cars."
Next earlier Chuck Hinman column - Chuck Hinman Veterans Day 2003

By Chuck Hinman

Changing Oil

It is a fact of life that some people are blessed with more skills and aptitudes than others. I have observed that some parent do a better job of teaching or training their children household skills. And yes, even horse-sense seems unevenly distributed.

I wasn't blessed with automotive maintenance skills as many are. Maybe that's why the Lord never made it possible for me to own a car until I was twenty-seven years old. There was an element of truth in Dad's admonition that I, Chuck Hinman, should "stay ten feet away from cars." That was funny but I began to know it was true and it hurt.
