Had to walk home

Recommended Posts

Saw a young boy walking on the side of the road. I thought he looked a little young to be out by himself on a busy road, he was about first grade. I'd decided to stop and make sure he was ok, he was walking in a way that indicated he was in some sort of trouble and a bit of a hurry.

I noticed that another car seemed to be watching him as well so I pulled up and asked the man inside if he knew the boy. He said he did, it was his son, and the son had been kicked off the school bus for bad behavior. Dad told me he was making the son walk all the way home so he would learn to behave on the bus. I'm guessing it was no more than a mile or two to his home, no distance at all to a healthy lad. I told the dad good job and went on my way.

Really impressed that there are still parents out there that will make their kids behave. That dad was doing that boy a huge favor, he might even turn out all right someday.

Don’t hear things like that much these days. Glad to hear there’s still some parents out there that hold their kids accountable.

Girls are great fun, and capable!

My son brought his daughter (my Grand daughter) to my house to learn how to use a 12 inch Bandsaw.  She had a project.

Then she went to the woodshop at school and told them she wanted to use their band saw.  She was able to tell them she had experience.  She's now the proud owner of a Winchester Model 74 in .22 short, that I got from my father when I was about 8 years old.

She's cool.
