When I was still living at home with my mom and daddy, our Mom used to show us how to repair all kinds of things, and he was undoubtedly good at fixing things around the home and on cars, too.
He used to patch up turf mowers, chainsaws, refrigerators, oil furnaces, and a/cs for all kinds of people in our city.
Occasionally he charged them a few dollars, but a lot of the time he would do it for free just because he knew that they might be struggling financially; My Mom was undoubtedly fantastic about doing stuff like that for men and women who were having a hard time, and i remember once when this guy came and asked him if he could repair his seasoned broken down oil oil furnace for her, and he was a widow and he had numerous guys to try and handle it. It was almost Winter and the rapidly increasing temperatures outside were already cooling down a lot and he said that he couldn’t afford to pay the guys at the Heating, Ventilation & A/C company to come and repair the oil furnace for her. Since my Mom already understood exactly how to repair just about everything, he went over to his home to take a look at the oil oil furnace. He figured out the problem and got the oil furnace up and finally worked again before the first snowfall of the year. I will never forget the look on that guy’s face when he told him that he wasn’t going to charge him anything for patching up the oil furnace. My Mom was undoubtedly good at fixing things, although he was also just a undoubtedly good guy.
