    Really? It doesn’t seem wise to suggest to the kids they shouldn’t trust their parents.

    My old man was a very deep fellow…..and had a dry sense of humour….you never knew you were being mocked til later….if ever.

    Anyway we broke the picture window and were informed we were going to an orphanage ……
    We had to pack suitcases…..all our stuff but no toys cause they ain’t allowed in the orphanage….our job would be cutting the lawns and washing the floors at the home….no ice cream or any desserts ever…

    In the car a 54 Pontiac and drive for an hour bawling and promising shit….grassing on each other blah blah blah when he finally relents and says that this is our last chance to fly right.

    Dad lets kid hit the deck and as he’s bawling old man says you learned a lesson here son…..don’t trust anybody.

    Mother dearest was a different disciplinarian altogether…….

    I never whacked them….never….and.haven’t hit a dog in well over 50 years…..I still blush that I ever did those few enough times…deeply .ashamed I am still.

    Funny isn’t it but I could murder all day long if they were truly bad men…..and have a meal and get my head down.

    BTW Clifford Olson was a kid in my neighbourhood growing up……apropos of nothing.
