country n news-another duct tape story


i am a duct tape aficionado
i am a big fan of duct tape
i have duct taped all kind of things to make them work

last week at habitat while doing a project
the handle broke off one of our wheelbarrows
into my ranch truck i went
got out my yellow duct tape
i have yellow since it matches the seat on my john deere lawn tractor
which over the years has split
necessitating coverage with yellow duct tape
the color of donald ducks bill

i also use the yellow duct tape to mark my tools
so they dont get mixed up with the habitat for humanity

so i got out that yellow tape
taped that handle back on
finished the job with that wheelbarrow

i told the kids that were helping me
thats not my tool even though it had yellow tape on
its handle

now this is one of my proud possessions
its my duct tape chair
i have requested that my wife she
when i die
bury me sitting up in that chair
i took this old chair she drug home one day
used 2 or 3 rolls of duct tape on it

it should never wear out
when some anthropologist digs up my grave
my bones will be sitting on this intact duct tape chair
with my new dental implants still attached to my skull
so said my dentist when i asked

the list could go on and on

so last week
i reached into my pocket where my iphone was embedded
in a pocket full of compost and garden soil
i wiped it off to make a phone call
as i did
i noticed i could see this light shining all around the sides
of my iphone
i realized that the cover had popped off my iphone

i took it home
cleaned it up good
blew it out with that spray stuff they wont let kids buy
looked down into the crevice where that light was
arising from
down in there was
the best compost made
the best garden soil made
a lot of moisture

i took it
put it in a baggie of rice
well i didnt wait 24 hours
the next morning
the moisture was all gone
i tried
unsuccessfylly to blow out more stuff
maybe i should have dropped a bean seed down in there

i went online
yep theres those videos on how to fix it
i thought
this isnt going to end well if i try all that stuff
out to the truck i went
i picked the dark grey duct tape
taped that iphone shut i did
turned it on
it works
well theres some spots on my screen that seems to be
coming from inside
like little fireflies who left their lights on
it works
doesnt look that good
well to me it does with all that duct tape
now i am now a proud owner of a duct tape iphone
i sit here in my duct tape chair
checking my messages
on my duct tape iphone

how to make the best of what you are presented with

macgyver would be proud
