The plan is to start off, each morning, mouthful of oatmeal porridge, a glimpse over to the birdfeeder..yes a hummingbird is doing his thing.
Well, you me and the birds are getting ready to fly…me in my dirty scrubs and the birds are singing to my CD tunes and oh gosh what a wonderful summer this has been, The Summer of 2012.
This place, that has been so scary to come home to, has turned out to be a kind-of -paradise. Stephen, whom I totally trusted ..told me this …,. year after year, finally this concept has stuck.“There’s this Tall Bill (TB)in Beaver Lumber(a McNabb man) and this Short Billy(SB) off Burnett’s Road, Near Stormy Point.
Both Bills are uniquely talented. Yesterday, I confronted Home Hardware Issues….so what-ya-guno-do?? Ask questions for a start.
Billy((SB) says there’s not such a thing as a stupid question, then he opens the top of my BBQ(after a measured moment of surprise…”it could be cleaned once in a while”. he says politely, with a chuckle), and bends over to set in my new propane tank demonstrating the most NB principle of mechanics re: a universal truth…..to open or close any tank……LEFTY LOOSY/RIGHTY TIGHTY.
My big issue is power hosing the decks and then painting them.
Big Bill, was kind enough to illustrate some of the techniques that I could use, then told me of his other interest..OPERA.
Small Bill is such an altruistic individual, so available to help anyone, at any time(as well as being a Volunteer Mckellar Fireman; he reads so much, is so cognizant of so much…so unassuming (he has a handle on something called meekness.. that great.Billy Meek).
and in case you did not get it, the meek do inherit the earth. They do.
The Greek interpretation of meek: gentle/ considerate/ unassuming. This is the opposite of arrogant and self-satisfied.
The meek person has put all the sensitivity about oneself aside…has grown to a place that puts defensiveness..and all that stuff aside……good old Billy Meek.
Stephen did not give me a legacy of “stuff”…he left me with kind people like Billy & concepts rich in meaning.
