    My Mom also used to have non-sensical rhymes, possibly from her youth, that I still remember today.
    One goes like this:

    "Listen my children and you may hear,
    The story of the midnight ride of Paul Revere.
    He jumped into the car and stepped on the gas,
    The door flew open and he fell on his, ah,
    Well, don't get excited; don't be misled.
    The door flew open and he fell on his head!"

    Best Wishes,
    Scott

    Frankn,

    When I was young, I didn't hit; I just ran.
    I didn't want to hurt anyone through the unleashing of my fury.
    (A discussion surely for later consideration....)

    Yes, I was the target of all of the bullies and the "bullies to be," who were actively "vying for supremacy;"
    a heirchy "under construction," always found throughout the educational system.

    It all ended one day at school, as I was a Sophomore, and a Senior slammed my locker shut,
    requiring me to go through the combination again to open my locker. Again!

    I guess that I snapped, slammed him to the ground and found out later
    that I had broken his nose once the pummeling was over.

    It took two male Teachers to pull me off.

    He went to the hospital, I went to the Principal's office.

    Fortunately, there were enough witnesses of this event and also previous examples of provacation that I was eventually exonerated and, NOBODY has ever messed with me again. To this day....


    The gist of this experience is that retribution comes to those who are patient. I guess.

    I see the wisdom of your Dad's words.....

    My Best,
    Scott

    I too caught it in school until I reached 12. at that point I started to deliver morning, evening and Sunday (300) papers. I was only challenged 3 times after that. One got a broken nose, one got a broken leg and one got a broken arm. I hate fighting, but if I can't walk away, I will try to finish him fast. Frank

    As much as I learned from my Dad, it's a quote from my Mom that's directed a lot in my life;
    "Make hay while the sun shines"
    Meaning every opportunity you've got to get the work done, do it.

    It's not what you say, but how you say it. Could this be diplomacy? frank
