Each '100 followers' i've done a 'get to know me more' post, so here goes - a list of my mad skills - as my teen daughter would say (you never know what or when a teenager will converse . . . today she called me 'such a stereotypical mother' & i thought, i'll show generic my girl!!)
First up, it's my birthday season, yahoo, gimme a big 3 to the 7!! A single day is not enough, we're all spread out over the year in this family, so we each have a season of hearty birthday celebrations.
My Mad Skills:
I can change the tyre on a truck
I can strip, assemble & operate an M60 Machine Gun
I love public speaking
I can revive a bunny rabbit who has overdosed, with a naloxone injection
I can bake an awesome pavlova
I have the heart rate & blood pressure of an elite athlete (not the body)
I kept a gold fish alive for over a year, without a filtered tank
I can peel & devein up to 8 prawns a minute
I got full marks for art (painting) in my Higher School Certificate
I can swing a hammer, operate a circular saw & lay cement
I can navigate the old fashioned way on land & at sea
I can type 90 wpm with 99% accuracy
I can jump start a car
I can see maths, literally, algorithms in the air & i love calculus
I acquired these skills as a little sister, as a wide eyed daughter with very patient parents, as a keen student with lots of interesting part time jobs, & as a wife left on her own way too often!! They counteract the fact I am a slow reader, unadventurous cook & it took me 3 goes to get my driver’s license, with the help of 6 immediate family members, but . . . I’ve never crashed or lost a point. I can assure you, it took a village to raise me. My life long message . . . children (& bunnies) say no to drugs!!
What are your mad skills?? Love Posie
Special mention to this lovely family who lost a bunny named Max yesterday, a fat & happy rabbit, enjoying life with his mate Mango. A young lady named Ella is heartbroken.
