Re: Things old ladies do...

My Mom is amazing. When I was a kid, she could:
sew
knit
crochet
maintain a vegetable garden
cook a gourmet dinner at a moment's notice
bake any dessert
change the oil in her car
administer first aid
clean and cook fish
clean, butcher and cook a deer (yes, a deer)
draw architectural blueprints
do basic electrical work
produce an elementary school's yearbook
learn American Sign Language
work as a nurse
work as a librarian
work as a forest ranger
beat cancer
beat TB
survive a hit and run that crushed her pelvis and thigh
raise three girls without attempting to kill them in their teen years
survive being married to my dad for over 60 years.

Me? I'm totally fucking useless. I've managed to get a few recipes from Mom but my hubby has cooked them more than I have. I can barely sew on a button. I don't even own a sewing machine. I kill every plant, my cooking sucks ASS, and have no special skill or talent whatsoever.
