I did too when I was 11. I saved the money for it just like Billy did. Make a deal with your daughter. Tell her if she saves up the money, you'll buy her the hound. You'll never regret that decision. She'll learn the importance of managing money to save for what's most important. Later, the hound will keep her in the woods nights and away from parties with her friends.

Pretty much true.When I was a kid,,if you didn't pay attention in school,,the old man gave me a swat upside the head,,and BINGO.I was cured of not paying attention.Now,,they make up a nome for it (ATD) and give the kid drugs.

The public school system is a horrible place for spirited young boys.

The desperation leads to abuses of all kinds. And avoidances of all kinds.... Do the math on availability vs cost vs potency and you'll find your neighborhoods' biggest problem and means to avoidance....


Lot of truth in this here statement. Kids getting exposed to drugs sooner and sooner in life and desensitized to it. Bring back the days when kids were taught they will kill you. Make sure they know the real life consequences if you use. Dont sugar coat it.

I was in the underground mining business, and fought off copper thieves my whole career. All the equipment at the loading face is electric, either 480 or 950 volt, 3 phase. We used some very large trailing and transmission cables.

Several times we had a company pick up stolen, with the bed filled with cables. Iíve seen thieves in the pit, trying to cut a live 4160 volt cable with a hack saw. We had to start storing our spare cables underground, as the low lifeís would break into a building or up a cyclone fence to get them. You could sometimes track them down by watching for the tell tale black smoke when they would burn off the jackets. Some would only burn at night to not give away their location. State police found abandoned pickups with broken springs and blowed out tires, with 3 tons of our cable in the bed.

Some thieves werenít too ambitious though. The would take a 600 foot cable, about 2 inches in diameter, straight to the scrap yard without burning off the jacket. One time, they tried to sell a cable, it still had our companyís name on the shipping tag.
