You've gotta be sharp, but I'll have what you're having Marty. There's something different about Tassie.  Nev

They used to call them Cut throat razors. Strop them on a leather belt. Today the same look but with "one use" blades. Nev

The old man used the razor belt on us when we were kids.

That sort of thing did happen. I do recall mentioning to my father that I could now run faster than he could, so things would change. Nev

A good cautionary story about corporal punishment to kids( true story):

 

There was this stocky youth in Alice Springs whose father belted him once too often and it turned into a fight which the 14 year-old son won.

The father had a mental breakdown and was sent " down south " never to be heard of again.

The son achieved more  fame as a seventeen year old for rolling his ute on account of how his girlfriend was playing with him at the time. Us 15 year-olds were jealous.

I thought the country folk had a roll in the hay, not in the ute.

The only hay in Alice Springs came up on the train. My sister used to beg the loose bits for her horse, making sure that the bales were disturbed enough to make more loose bits for next time. They were those small bales you don't see much these days.

I would have loved a ute, but in those days I thought that girls were like angels and completely unattainable so it wouldn't have helped much.

Why don't people who don't know where they left their phone just ring it. BEFORE the battery goes flat.  Nev

Did you know that kids' phones have a special setting switch.

When activated, it recognizes in-coming calls from parents' phones and ignores them.
