It would make a grunting sound. It liked carpet by ripping up the nap or chewing on furniture legs. It finally got a tumor I believe and passed away. Cute little rabbit. It was black and white. If you laid on the floor it would come up to you and sniff around and check you out.

Probably better than a monkey I heard someone had. Criminey they would put it in a room when they left and the monkey would get pi$$ed and tear it up because it wanted to go to.

My father traded someone for a spider monkey when I was young. We kept it in big cage. The only person who could hold it was my sister. I guess because she had long hair and it would play with her hair. It wasn't very big as I recall. I don't even know what happened to it. My father probably traded it with someone for something.
Ha these are pretty good but they stay outside.
My uncle has a cockatoo, it's vicious to anyone it doesn't know, says get out and chases and bites.
His 2 staffy dogs just laze around and the cockatoo is the security guard.

We lived on a farm when I was young and we would take the big rear tractor inner tubes and blow them up and used them to jump on. That was our poor version of a trampoline I guess.

I remember one day we were inside and one of them was laying out in the sun and it exploded. Guess it was lucky were weren't jumping around on it. Kaboom.

We all probably got an a$$ whipping by my dad.

My brother and I one day decided to make cookies. Mom was on the phone. The propane gas oven had to be lit. We turned the gas on and a while later my brother lit a candle and I stuck it down to the hole to light the oven. Kaboom all I remember was a ball of flames and I jumped back. We ran outside and here came our mother with the paddle which got used quite frequently.

The paddle had a shiny patina to it from being used often.

Even the car had one. One of us threw it out the car window one day. Mom looked all over for it. Only mother I knew who could drive and spank at the same time. The neighbor lady she used a bar of soap for cussing.

At grade school we all knew the principal had a paddle. That was word of mouth but never documented. For sure we didn't cross her.

Had contractors out to start the estimates on the Ice dam damages from this winter and deck repair, arggh. about 1/3 of the roof needs to be removed to get to the water damage over the master bed and bath.The last snow slid off the roof took out part of the back deck too, neighbors say it has not snowed like this in 30 years. I was going to replace the deck rails anyway as I am not a fan of the white PVC stuff, so now I have a bit of a kick in the rump to do it.

Did get started back on the Sauna to fine tune the interior have a few more trim pieces to do, need to finish with the changing room and deck for it but still too cold and wet to pour a slab.

I don't recall when it was I was talking to some former grade school student. Something took place between 3 guys in a class ahead of me. One of them told me when the principal got all 3 of them in her office she pulled the paddle out and laid it on the desk. The truth came out after that between all 3 of them. LOL

I was on a school board a number of years ago for 8 yrs. Now there is a worthless position. Now they have timeout rooms. I saw one room next to the grade school office one day and I asked what is that room. Why all of the floor trim was pulled off and torn all to hell. It was the timeout room. I don't know things aren't like when I went to school. A lawyer we had on retainer said oh yeah I can walk into a 5th grade and pick out the future law breakers. He said if you can't get buy in from the parents to discipline you might as well for get it. The teachers union didn't like me too well also. I think the feeling was mutual.

The school board was suing the city over a TIF (tax increment finance) area before I got on the board. The next day after I was elected this developer of the TIF area phones me. Say I probably can't talk to you after you take the office oath and be sworn in he said. I wanted to say oh just sent me a brown envelope in the mail. LOL meaning money for a bribe. The board president always told me I was going to jail as the treasurer. I said what for the Bahamas retreat I bought from the district's funds. LOL
