Ha! Don't you just love going through the old family albums? There's so much that's good blackmail material in there! This goodie is of Brother Dear back around the mid 50's, when a boy would never be caught without at least one trusty cap gun.
Speaking of guns, Junior was kept after school today because he had done a big No-no. What did he do? He was playing with his buddies during recess and was caught using his hand for a make-believe pistol on school property. My, how far today's society has progressed in the age of correctness :P
Needless to say, Junior was very upset by the whole ordeal and had a hard time grasping the reasoning behind the bullying he received from the school system. I gave him some honest advice: when in school, as anyplace else, you have to follow their rules. No need to go into their logic why, because it simply doesn't apply to him or 99.9% of all boys. As far as I'm concerned, a boy is after all a boy, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I wish Society could act mature enough to accept this.
