Perfect for the Task at Hand

About two weeks ago, I began to reread Thomas Hoving's, Tutankhamun - The Untold Story." Since then, this phrase has been on my mind. "Howard Carter was the perfect man for the job. . . .The very fact that his watercolors gave no hint of inner spirit, or demonstrated any sort of creative spark, made them perfect for the task at hand." p. 27. (Carter was hired to record paintings, reliefs and inscriptions found during excavations in Egypt.)

Today, Mamma and I finished the eight hour Over-55-safe-driving course sponsored by AARP. This will give us a 10% discount on our car insurance for the next three years. The course and the instructor were perfect for the task at hand.
