Excited At Three Screw-Ups

Now excited over three screw-up's

This may seems as a surprise... just to be excited over three screws. Up there are three lousy screws that had given  so much trouble over the last week.

However when correctly applied a 'screw-up" has a wonderful effect sometimes of being a bonus.

Practice thing ahead before  hand

Learning on the job comes at some strange moments. Sometimes there is a small cost involved called embarrassment balanced with laughter, and smiles , as it is shown how much more people can assist that learning capacity. 

 In this post we aim to show you just how much of a bonus screw-up's maybe!

Reach higher while using the thing-a-me from the car

Doors are held in place with screws, nails, even pop riveted attachments. As the project of the door started the realization came that not everything needed was there within easy reach.

That included height as when the thing you want to screw in is taller than you can reach there could be a further challenge waiting for the unwary person on the end of the screw driver!

Those screws were to high

These three screws were in the bracket that used to hold the older screen door hydraulic closing of the screen door pump thing.

Up high, right there, just out of reach ... that is until the idea came. Try the thing that loosens up many bits of metal. Took a second to look in the car where there it was only one can of WD 40 lubricant. Which when applied to the door screw 

Now the screws refused to budge

Three different manual screw drivers later the new drill was remembered. Dare I? But wait that would mean charging it as the drill was so new it had not even been unpacked.

Well after a while one screw came out. Very reluctantly. Very, very reluctantly. You could literally hear this screw holder laughing at you!

Come on think as where there is a will...

Then again where there is a Susan, there is a way! Sometimes uncongenial and a little extreme. But when something actually clicks into overdrive and works lets share the adventure, add a few smiles and learn from everything.

All was not lost as there was a list of jobs to do and all connected to this one doorway project.

The screws still needed to be loosened

Meanwhile, there was the screws to be removed so all the door frame will be back down to bare wood.  Can be totally sanded, primed and finally painted with exterior oil paint.

This even happened with the screws that just would not come out of the frame work.

Two things happened today

 The first was frustration and the second was a brilliant idea. The Stanley knife plus the hammer. Add that to the three screwdrivers, the wd-40 and the new drill

The three manual screw drivers were tried. One way to big just in case! This one was for something on machines or engines. Well they all go back in the shed tomorrow as it is dark now.

The one screw being out was now really frustrating

On the shelves in the dining room are a lot of tools not yet back in the shed. These tools finding their home back in the shed starts tomorrow.  Amongst them are the hammers... one with claws. Plus a Stanley knife. Both these came to the front door.  

The Stanley knife blade cut the paint and then went under the bracket. The result was the loosening of  the suction effect. Then carefully the tips of the blade went around the base of the screw.

Odd, but with one step at a time

Next came the craw hammer. Place and tug. Once on the right, then on the left. Followed by Bang, Bang on each side.  Something shifted.

Opps! What just happened! Was the drill now wreaked? Is there damage to the door?

Oh Heck, what can the matter be?

But hang on there is a button here. The battery powered drill turns to the left, and to the right.  More easily if the drill is horizontals and at first pushing downwards while turning. 

That means the seal between the paint, door and hinge was now effectively ripped apart, not just broken.

Big smile of relief time occurred

That smile whipped around my lips and went all through as everything relaxed. Besides being a wow moment there was that  Hallelujah it's done tingle.

Remembered that at breakfast this morning His help was asked for. This house will be worthy. It may not be a palace full of earthly riches and jewels. But it will be a place of God's peace to be found. 

It was at that moment a decision was now reinforced

There has been so much stress and unrest through out the lives of people within this house over all of this houses years that this place, tucked just above and behind the bus stop has had to change.

So to be excited at three screw-up's would turn out to be a familiar and wonderful feeling of many more steps to forge ahead and turn into achievements.

Reach out, grab it, forge ahead 

Education has, in part, the need to both see, hear and to understand what is is that is to be achieved.  Yeah get excited at three screw ups.
