Whenever I work on the oil furnace at my house, I am constantly reminded of my Grandfather Roy, but even though he has been gone for many years now, he is the first person who ever taught myself and others anything at all about laboring on things plus fixing them, then he was a single of those guys who knew how to repair just about everything around the house, and i don’t remember him ever having to call a repairman the whole time that I was growing up.
He just figured things out on his own.
That is just the type of guy that he was. I have constantly tried to model myself after him. I constantly appreciated the way that he could figure things out. He never found a problem that was too crucial for him. I remember the first time he took myself and others down into the basement with him to work on the broken oil oil furnace at my house. It was the middle of the Wintertide plus we were all entirely chilly because the oil furnace was not laboring constantly. It took him a while to figure out what the problem was with the oil furnace, however by the end of the afternoon, it was back up plus running. I remember feeling so proud that I was down there helping him plus handing him the tools that he needed to repair the oil furnace. I guess it is no surprise that I constantly guess about him whenever I’m laboring on something at my house. I am grateful for all of those memories plus for the fact that he taught myself and others how to work on things myself.
