Lost Manuals

Do you ever get the feeling that your missing something..but not sure what..and when others are questioned, they give you a blank look and change the subject?

I think that there is a handbook somewhere for damn near everything and anything you may have questions about. It is chock full of the most valuable lessons and rules and protocol that we need to live the lives that we are given.

But...the trick is to know where to locate such precious volumes of literature. You cannot google it ( I have tried)...and I have not come across any stray ones on EBay either.
I have searched garage sales , tag sales and yard sales and even rummage sales at churches...not a one to be found.

Perhaps in a trunk in an attic in the midwest there be one to be had...but you most inevitably will be questioned by the dear maiden aunts why you would ever want or need to be going up there in the first place.

Another possibility is the hidden vaults of archives. But those are to find as well ...because , well they are hidden. *smiles*

Maybe the location information is imprinted on the heads of pins and no one has discovered nor have they been able to crack or decipher the code in which its written.

Now why would you want to go in search of these manuals in the first place?
For those times that someone tells you to act your age....I mean you live the age you are but , do you really act it...and what does one of that age act like...it has to be noted somewhere and someone knows the answer.

Another example is when you finally, after carefully following the directions...(ok that leaves most men out ...lol)...and you find that you have several parts or pieces left over.
There must be a reason for it and there must also be some purpose too. And yup..it is written down why that happens and what to do about it, should it happen to you.

*smiles sweetly*
I did mention that I tend to think a little too much and at the oddest of hours...and yes it happened tonight.

If interested...what I am listening to tonight...

When you follow the manual, you wind up with left over parts. Besides that, you can never find the damn things when you really need them. That's why guys tend to not use them anyway. (it's kind of like reading maps)

Maybe you have just identified a project for yourself - the "Handbook For Damned Near Everything"

All you have to do is write it, and get a publisher nterested. There are a couple of ways you could tackle such a project. One would be to write instructions on just about everything - sort of an encyclopaedia of "How to do it." Another approach would be to forget about all the detail, and make this a true "reference manual" in which you would point the reader in the right direction for detailed instructions. A multiple-indexed cross-reference system would be very valuable.

How about it?

You could always wing it, like I do, watch other people and not repeat their actions when things blow up in their faces, and follow your moral compass.

Although I have a nasty habit of ignoring it from time to time.

    Quoting DustyWidget:
    The trick is to count the parts in the first place and then you will know in time to take it back.
You may just have something there Dusty...*smiles*

    I'm always missing something. I just don't know what it is. But if I find it I'm gonna keep it cause I don't want to miss it again.
    I already lost an orange goat today.
Take....*smiles*...If I had only known sooner about the orange goat...I believe I caught sight of one here...perhaps it is yours?

blue....Yikes...Now that would be an undertaking of massive even epic proportions...and to be done alone ...by myself?...eek....I am not that bright nor that able to convincingly write something like that...*smiles*...but a good idea nonetheless...thanks blue

I guess really we all search for manuals in one way or another,
the bible,Koran,some even try at writing them,chairman Mao,the little red book, hitlers, mein kamp, Bill, the founder of AA, and Dr. Ruth, Dr.Phill Oh an not to forget Oprah, countless, dreamers,poets,lovers, but.. I feel we all must struggle around blindly, and apologize, once in awhile for bumping in to one another,for after all we are human... and there in you can surely find chaos, and life itself, the unplanned journey, the only winner is the one, who shares with others of their self, selflessly, and therefore, shares the journey, and is not lost.

you won't find that in a fortune cookie,....it's too long.
ps... love the graphic may I use it?
kisses,
mark

I know a Guy who took apart a car engine once. He carefully saved everything, but after He got done putting it back together the was still a handful of nuts and bolts left. The car still ran fine. lol
...There's got a moral to that story somewhere. *scratching head*
