Also true at Home. My dad had very big hands. You didn't want to see either the front or back of one of them coming at you. Just the thought of it helped keep my nose clean. If you were half smart, it only had to happen once and you knew what to avoid for years to come. He was a very smart man, far from abusive and a great dad, but lessons learned young last a long time.

The other reminder was the old fashion razor strap hanging behind the door. Ouch.

Yea, look at how things have progressed. This goes along with everyone suing everyone for everything. What's right, or good or pure or true?
