Mean Mother

She marched him right down to the local constabulary so that he could confess his crime–shooting out street light bulbs in Duvall, Washington, population 236, 1950. Yeh, his own mother turned him in. Yeh, the 8-year-old kid was a good shot with his BB gun but no one should engage in such nefarious behavior. It wasn’t right in the neighborhood. The lawman did not keep me overnight but I learned another important lesson–my mother was honest. And treat your neighbors with more respect.
