    I do not agree with teachers hitting kids in school. I know about bad kids since I worked in a juvenile detention center for my carrier however I still don’t agree with it. I remember the fear it inspired in going to school. I was a quiet gentle kid and seeing that happen to others was disturbing to me. Once I was talking when I wasn’t suppose to and got a paddle for it. I was devistated. All not necessary. This was one of the reasons I did not like school. I did well even so but living with that stress is not necessary. I do believe in parents spanking to a degree. Not beating. The diff I think is the average parent knows their kids and can decide when it’s really necessary.

    You must have felt very special. What a great memory. I have similar memories of fishing with my Dad. He and I on the river in my hometown, wading down stream until there is just enough daylight left to get back home.

    Many years later I was in a pub and there was a teacher who was enthusiastic about dishing out the belt. I put him in A&E, I think you call it ER in the US.

    My grandpa, Pop, lived on 5 Acres out in the country . My brother and I would drive the tractor, shoot, explore the woods, and do all sorts of chores.Pop made it fun. Going to the county fair was always a big deal. Those were the brightest summer days ever:)

    When I was a teenager we would go play golf together. Now Pop hasn't played in 20 years. He doesn't warm up or practice. Plays with his Sam Snead clubs from the early 60s. And goes out and shoots a respectable 90 on a pretty tough course.:p
