    I pays to be blessed with abilities to do different kinds of work.

    After 4 years starting in January 2011 taking care of the LOML & watching the miracles of her healing which is still on going. Then taking care of my Dad through his last year of life. Then learning about my own health problems. Diabetes 2 & being diagnosed with Parkinson's.

    I am back to work. I am doing auto detailing. I used to have my own business of mobile detailing & went to 2 dealerships & several private customers about 20 years ago. I make about $15 an hour which depends on my speed & abilities of knowing what to do & lack of wasted motion. As time goes on I will earn more per hour by my abilities to eliminate wasted motion. I have known the people I am working for 38 years. They keep saying it sure is nice to have someone that we don't have to tell what needs to be done & watch to make sure it gets done properly. Actually I really enjoy this work & the challenge of motion analysis to eliminate unnecessary moves. Like in the movie Cheaper by the dozen.

    Congrats! Bringing in few bucks regularly is always a good thing.

    Reliable, trustworthy help, hard to find and hopefully getting appreciated more. Good for you Bart. Detailing is a talent that when done correctly you don't know it has been done. When done incorrectly or half way, it is painfully obvious an attempt was made.

    Another big Congratulations! Your motion analysis reminds me of Tai Chi.

    Congrats Bart, though I've heard it said that 'the devil is in the details'
    The perception of perfection is perfectly clear to everyone else
