your hands ...

... what are they going to do today?

Tell me about your laborious achievements!
May it be in a pizza parlor, an office typing away, doing gardening, walking the dogs, painting a picture or just trading stocks. No matter what you do, it must be valuable.
Explain why.

arabic saying :only the hands ,,full of sweat ,,are cherished ..cos they are working ..

I like your Arabic saying, Haider. It gives true homage to the importance of hands.
Did you know that they finally found out scientifically (with brain scans and such) that the development of intelligence is closely connected to the sensible use of hands during the years when a child grows up.

... so don't be shy Haider, till some soil and plant some tomatoes an zucchinis in-between explorations of internet saga.

My earn-a-living work is mostly my mouth and typing on a keyboard. To really put my hands to work, I love to garden, to chop and stack firewood... and to clap for great live music.

I love the garden and the music part Gary: Excellent!

I'm a day or so late, but...in the past two days, my hands have brandished sponges & dustclothes, folded laundry, finished a bead bracelet, typed endlessly, dead-headed pansies and petunias, finished a beaded bracelet, organized 60 little drawers of glass beads, started sketching ideas for a beaded gauntlet
and hefted a glass or two of gin. That's a partial list. Why is this important? Because "if I did not work these worlds would crumble."

I work for an International Trucks parts dealer. I deliver parts for semi's and school buses.

Everyday I haul wheel hubs (80lbs), leaf springs (50-250 lbs),
transmissions (very heavy 100's of lbs) to the lighter stuff: electrical, hoses, fluids, anything a rig or bus needs to operate.

It's a hard physical job. Union, good pay and benefits. Keeps me in good shape and outdoors. A necessary job, but I am not unique like an artist might be. Many could do this job.

My hands are usually dirty, scratched, sometimes lightly bloody, scabs are common, blisters, and hard to the touch.

Some would never do a job like mine, but it fills my needs, supports my family, and I like being out and about dealing with everyday blue collar types. I am a History major graduate.
