Boco, I heard once you become a member of the family you are on until boss says you are no longer part of the family. That may last well into the afterlife.


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

I made this inquiry because of a story I’m going to share. My dad at 85 frequently tells stories regarding our childhood. I have heard most of them many times however, I will listen for as long as he tells them.

During a recent visit he told one I had heard before but this time a piece of the story kind of stood out. I can give a short version that would lead to my question, but where is the fun in that. lol

When I was preschool age I developed a limp. My parents noticed that even when I ran, I favored one leg. Concerned they took me to our family doctor. Upon examination he delivered the bad news that one of my legs was shorter than the other and there was a problem with my bones. He recommended they take me to a specialist. The specialist put me through the paces and spoke with my parents independent from me. He shared that he could find nothing wrong with me physically. He went on to explain he had seen cases where children limped, mocking a character in a popular cowboy show.

We returned home and my father asked if I knew anyone that limped to which I replied, “Mr Owl that lives at the end of our street.” My father then explained that if he saw me limping again he was going to wear me out with the belt. Cured in an instant I was. Being preschool at the time, I don’t remember much of that except the important stuff. That would be seeing a specialist and the threat of the whoopin’.My question is, the specialist mentioned other children that had done this and I was curious if any of you had done this or know a friend that had?

Had a kid in my school(year younger) that had one sole of his shoe thicker due to a bone deficiency or something, but I think he turned out ok.

In grade school in the '50s it seemed like a lot of kids had limps, braces, special shoes; it would have been sorta unacceptable to mock them, but if you were dressed up like a TV cowboy then aping ol' Hopalong was not unheard of. Which makes me wonder why we never hear of polio like we did back then.

Catch22 picked on Bogmaster, Tom and was banned for 6 months. I've talked to Jeff, Catch22, a few times and he's doing okay. He assembled a couple of turtle traps and fixed up an old meat grinder to grind up a couple of whole hogs.
