LOLOLOL.... I had a TYPING teacher that threw erasers..... He was a true freak, though... this was high school, and the current class had to line up, exit in rows toward the FRONT door of the room, while the incoming class had to ENTER through the REAR door and flow in along the back wall and far wall, like slithering rows of snakes in and out of the den.... yikes.... LOL...
once he shot an eraser out at me for talking while I was in the 'entry' line... (HIGH SCHOOL students no less.. LOL) and the eraser hit me right square in the butt... and ooooooh, JESUS did it hurt.....
HE was such a freak though..... LOLOL... old Mr. McN... an outright q***r, but it was never talked about except in the head, whispering... LOLOL....

Now the kids call the shots, call the authorities if a teacher/parent dares to touch/question/correct them, and it all ends up in court being sorted out...I always laughed at how "lost this generation has become" came out of my dads mouth because we dressed in fringed leather, dressed and acted like Hippies and listened to Steppenwolf...but now I understand how each generation of parents look at the youth of today and think that!!!

WE HAVE BECOME OUR PARENTS!!! Thank GOD our parents were someone we admire and are pleased to have become!!!! Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad's (mine has been gone since 1975, so if your Dad is still alive, PLEASE give him an extra hug tomorrow for those of us who's dads are not here to give a hug to!)
Awww... yeah, my Daddy is gone too... so is Mom... funny, most of my life, I called him 'Dad'... from the day he died, I have called him "Daddy"... interesting.....
Everyone in our house knew they were loved by him..... he was a good man in ALL his roles in life... After he died, my mother got SCORES of sympathy cards from folks we didn't even know, mostly men, workers that had come under Dad's tutelage through the years and from around the globe. In spite of the fact that they still move me to tears when I read them, I do occasionally come across them and re-read at least a few of them.... He was never famous, he lived a humble life without fanfare, and he never got MOST of the recognition he deserved... but he was "Daddy", and one of the BEST in my book..... HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, DADDY.... Till we meet again... xxoo
