Can I be that old?
(I am posting early, sometimes it takes 8 hrs to appear)
I read something yesterday that I have probably read many times in the last few years, but yesterday? Yeah yesterday I was a little mentally tired and I read:
I didn't think I would get OLD this soon!
I remember 4 digit telephone numbers. I remember a sweet voice asking, "Number Please?" when I picked up the phone. I remember trying to pick up the phone very easy to see if the party line was busy. (I have listened on occasion :-O)
I can remember when I got a spanking in school and carried a note home to mama, I either got another lick or two, or a good sit down 'talking to'. Most times I would have rather had the 'switch' again. Well the teachers used a wooden paddle and mama used a switch from the hedge, that I had to retrieve for her.
Funny as I remember it, the other 'mischievous' boys would warn me, "You don't want to go to the principal's office, he has a BIG paddle with holes in it!" I never understood the meaning of 'holes in it', but I knew it must hurt worse. LOL
Then we were blessed with this:
But this happened to some unfortunate driver in the downpour!
These are shots from Florida's Horse country that I mentioned yesterday!
SPANKINGS IN SCHOOL, I heard Mel up north got one, did you ever enjoy corporal punishment at your school?
(Of course my wife was an angel, she never got one!)
PS: Notice I have pictures again. Not sure what I did, but it is working again....
