    ellllllllllllllllllllllllllll, ours was a nice whippy length of laurel...my eyes still water at the thought...weird thing is I do not remember doing anything that bad to warrant it...no, that's not true, I did accidentally hit the house cow with my arrow...double whammy...not only did I shoot her but I had to milk her as well...

    Hazel is good but I prefer the white glass fence peg with insulation tape handle. The best cure for stroppyness in cattle

    Any of you want to tell where the bodies are buried ?

    In my latest local newsletter a school has found time capsules outlining how corporal punishment was to be administered.
