Scheduled Mild Amusements Dump
My girls and I did pretty well together, don't get me wrong.
It's just that i'd have more to offer a boy.
My girls grew up very country. Both headed for big cities as soon as they could.
Who could blame them?

The fantasy is that a boy would totally dig the grime and toil pf country life, and would basically become my slave.
I can see where that might not work out well.

I've never met a kid that longed to mix cement or shovel manure. Regardless of sex or religious affiliation.
I know some guys that had boys that stayed on the farm, like in the movies.

What it takes, from what I've seen, is to make sure they're too stupid for any options.
So they take on the chores and eventually own the farm.

The Amish have figured this out. Their kids have to quit school by ninth grade.
Not much likelihood they'll move to the bay area and become computer programmers.
So they learn to fix fences and repair the tractor. It's all they know.


(sigh)

such a romantic vision.

Few kids follow in the footsteps when there's other options available. Cuz's 2 nephews made different choices, one grew up engrossed and addicted to the family business, engineering. He was covered in grease from the time he could toddle. Driving and repairing heavy mining machines happens in his idea of heaven, his older brother took off for the city lights and dealt blackjack in a casino.

Both of the engineering son's boys have acquired his addiction to things mechanical though, but in slightly different ways.
One likes to study how they work, the other just likes to drive 'em. They'd make a great racing car team. One design it, the other drive it.

An Irish daughter had not been home for over 5 years.

Upon her return, her father cussed her, "Where have ye been all this time? Why did ye not write to us, not even a line? Why didn't ye call? Can ye not understand what ye put yer old mum through?"

The girl, crying, replied, "Sniff, sniff .... dad .... I became a prostitute ...."

"Ye what??!! Out of here, ye shameless harlot! Sinner! You're a disgrace to this family."

"OK, dad .... as ye wish. I just came back to give mum this luxurious fur coat, title deed to a ten-bedroom mansion, plus a savings certificate for $5 million. 

For me little brother, this gold Rolex. 

And for ye, daddy, the sparkling new Mercedes limited edition convertible that's parked outside, plus a membership in the country club..." .... (takes a breath) ... "and an invitation for ye all to spend New Year's Eve on board me new yacht in the Riviera , and ....."

"Now what was it ye said ye had become?" says dad.

Girl, crying again, "Sniff, sniff .... a prostitute, dad! .... sniff, sniff."

"Oh! Be Jesus! Ye scared me half to death, girl! I thought ye said a Protestant. Come here and give yer old man a hug!"

You can lead 'em to knowledge, but you can't make 'em think.
