Does it bother you when you want to do something, but can't figure out how and can't get any help?

    This just came to mind ---------------- playing golf. Everyone that plays it wants to do better. Even Tiger Woods. Personally, I could never afford a golf teacher, so I am stuck alone. However, all golfers get a good shot every once in a while. That encourages us to keep at it.

    Were you the one who had balls in your pockets that were so brittle you froze your balls?
    I loved that story!

    Yes, I am the 'frozen balls' guy.

    Therefore, in my mind, you are a hole-in-one!
    That story had me giggling for days and I STILL remember it.  I'm glad I know now who to give the credit to.
    Your dedication to the game is on "The Masters" level. 
    Truly impressive.
    You deserve to be on top!!

    I agree. I once shot a 37 for nine holes on a course in MI. I was still buzzed from the night before. I can't golf anymore though.

    No, I love that. 

    Of course it bothers me! But thankfully I can usually find some help if I ask.

    If I don't know I google it.  If that fails, I just take a stab at it.  It may not be "right", but I might learn something by trying.

    If the desire I am seeking takes more than me and I can't find a person to help me to have the resolution, I'm sure I would be frustrated for a moment.
    Then, I would realize I know the how to fix the problem.  Find another and quest to do such.  
    If the puzzle is a crossword puzzle, I would write to you or Randy or JA or Welby or B.H. Wilson, or My 2 Cents, or Danilo, or the Reverend, or Walt Oregon, or SouthPaw, or Nevan or Shuhak, or Jaimie, or Wakko, or anybody here that is smart and ask via answerMug.  

    If it were a physical problem like building something or putting something together, I would use the attached instructions.  If I didn't have the instructions, I would ask Don.  If both were unavailable, I am pretty good at putting things together.  They may not be exactly where they need to be but it works... with lots of left over parts.

    I can ALWAYS create things out of nothing or make nothing something.

    No.  I am very rarely bored with something I can't figure out.

    Good Call. :) :)
    My megar thought is maybe that gif doesn't want to be posted here for a reason.
    There is probably a better one.  You just haven't found it yet.  It will come.
    Maybe the real gif you need to post is just out of your reach.  Tickle your feelers around the site and see what happens. 
    It might pop out for you.

    That usually happens to me in terms of technology.  Some people have an absolute knack for figuring how to load apps, go from one thing to another, etc., but not me.  I could crochet you a cozy for a tank, but don't ask me how to add a telephone number to my phone list.

    My flip-phone is easy...I don't do apps. I still can't figure out how to put pics from it on the computer so I can post them here.

    Send your pict from your phone to your email on your computer.

    As I said...I don't know how to do that. It's not that important as my camera is crap. It's just that I don't know how. grrr.

    If I could afford it, I would send you the iphone 11. Don has one and it does take amazing pictures.
    He uses it for work.  It was given to him by the home owner.  I have the X (or 10) most people don't know that is the Roman Numeral for 10.... I know you do and everyone here does but it still makes me smile when I gently enlighten people they are one in the same. 
    The 11 is, hands down, the best for the cameras. 
    I wish I could buy you one and send it to you.. and one for SpunkySenior, too.
    They come with instructions; however, I am true faith you both could figure it out on your own.

    Don just came out of the office with news that the scructual engineer has lost the plans and the home owner would like to have them.
    Truly amazing how these scenarios come about.
    I'm distracted.  I've gotta go.  
    Hugs and Lvoes

    I doubt if I would use it. I can barely turn my wife's on, much less use it. She has had it for three years and still can't figure out most of the stuff.

    Do you know how to text? Most phones (even flip) will let you send a text to a email account.  
    Select the pict. But no worries.

    Oh, and I can't even crochet a cozy for a tank or a teapot.  At least you have a skill that you can barter with.
