Kids Education – Training Children to Work: Simpler Times
My wife and I reminisced about life when we were kids. Times were simpler. Things weren’t perfect, but life was less hectic.
Of an evening, my friends and I sat on the curb in front of our local candy store and mixed peanuts with cola and drank the concoction. Nothing tasted better than peanuts and cola. Well…maybe cream puffs were better, (ours were real cream), and hot pecan pie with ice cream was better, but as an affordable treat for kids…nothing beat peanuts and cola.

A Tribute to Mothers Everywhere: Remarkable Women
Although my mother has passed into heaven, I would like to share an open letter I put on EzineArticles in 2010.

She was a true example of a loving wife and mother. I hope mothers everywhere know their example has a lifetime effect on family members. They are truly a gift from God.

Little Angels – Bare Knuckle Boxing Extravaganza

- Little angels…you bet.  What could cause a mother to spank her eleven angels? –

“Okay, everybody line up.” commanded Mom.
We had crossed the line; the paddlings were “fixin” to begin. Mom held the ruler in her hand. (She had learned that spanking eleven little angels with her hand was more painful to her than to us.) She was seven months pregnant with her twelfth child and was in no mood for games.
Mom didn’t use platitudes like, “This is going to hurt me more than it hurts you.” Instead, she’d say, “This is going to hurt. Maybe you’ll learn something.” We […]
