Saturday

Well, I'm off for 2 weeks now and will have a good time not going to work. I'll probably wake up early Monday just out of habit though. Not sure of what we will do or go, but at least I won't have to worry about being at work the next morning for awhile.

Last week at work we had something funny happen. One of the guys that I work with came in with 2 different shoes on. He said he gets dressed in the dark and wears gym type shoes so it wasn't that noticeable to him. When the fellow I was working with spotted it, we all had a good laugh at it. He ended up calling his wife so she could bring the correct shoe in so he had matching ones lol.

On another note, I got home last week and Barb was watching Court TV when I got there. They had a case of a 10 yr old who had beaten a homeless man with bricks and such on trial. The thing that bothered me was they had a lawyer on that was trying to make a point that the kid shouldn't be punished harshly for what he had done due to his age. This angered me very much. I mean, if they don't punish this kid for what he did, how is he going to learn his lesson not to do this type of thing. To make it worse the homeless man might lose his eye from the injuries suffered at the hands of this kid. It just amazes me that anyone, let alone a 10 yr old would even think about beating someone that severe. Not to mention the fact that if this kid is doing this type of thing at his age, what will he think he can do when he gets older if he isn't punished?

I guess that's about all for now. I'll try to post some more during my time off. Till next time BYE!!

It must be nice to have that many shoes lying about the place

I didn't realize you had a blog...don't know what rock I have been hiding under. I found the link on Asara's blog. It was nice to meet you on the phone the other day and I am now off to add you to my links. *hugs from Oklahoma*

Mike, I think we must both come from the "old school" of thought pertaining to punishment - "Spare the rod and spoil the child."
I definitely have to agree with your theory on this one!

When I was a kid I was watching some show that was interviewing Macauley Caulken (Home Alone fame) and he was wearing two different shoes.

That is too funny 'bout your co worker wearing two different shoes. Thank goodness I've never done that before. I have worn two different ear rings, though.

About the kid...he needs to know right from wrong one way or another, obviously his parents aren't teaching him, so the law should!!
