    Why did FDOTM need to kill the sparrow with his hands? Wasn’t he man enough just to use the gun?

    I hope they’re allowed to carry matches as well.

    There also used to be a dog food product the shape and size of a small licorice all-sort that fitted perfectly into an air rifle. Rubber bullets for little tackers. Not that I ever . . .

    Holden, that’s a ringin’ in mah ears. Working with demented folks myself too, I can hear it. In a way I feel guilty sometimes when a certain patient unloads on me in a mix of ol’ timer slang and the “f” word, it’s a good as I can do not to die laughing.

    I only visit occasionally, and have relatives who work in aged care. Delicious, those occasions, and that job has to have some upsides.

    My joy is deciding when to play redneck and when cosmopolitan sophisticate. Nothing like a good clash of cultures to get a dinner party going.
