In Uncle Bob's neck of the country, you can make him cut a sapling and march to the woodshed.

Those are the stories my Mother used to tell. And she loved to relate to us how she had to cut her own "switches" from the woods when she got in trouble. And if the switches weren't sturdy enough, after she got her first beating, she had to cut a second one that was sturdier and get beat again. Wow1 I didn't know anyone was as old as my Mother! I bet at Christmas time, if they thought you were bad, you still go coal in your Christmas Stoking. Go 'head. Admit it. I know it's true.

Goodweed of the North: I really did not want to go into detail (above post) but I think you have given a whole new outlook on the Woodshed!
Southern people talk about it all the time. Is that where your mother is from?

Miss Marge...

Ya know that I 'love ya' however; It deeply pains me and I sincerely regret, but I shall have to decline your kind invitation to the woodshed! Please accept my deepest aplogies.

Might I offer another solution. I will meet you at the woodshed where we shall build a nice fire. I have a recipe for beef short ribs with 40 cloves of garlic that a sweet and kind lady in Kentucky shared with me. I have adapted it for the outdoor fire and Iron Dutch oven. I had plans the next time I prepared this wonderful dish to add a substantial amount of red wine. However; for this occasion at the woodshed I shall forgo the use of wine in recipe and instead offer the bottle(s) as a peace offering for my past transgressions. We could name the recipe "Kentucky Wood Shed Short Ribs/40 Cloves of Garlic"


I await your answer with patience and hopes that you will entertain my offer.

Uncle Bob

Nope. We live as far North as you can get, right on the Canadian border in upper peninsula Michicagan. I suspect that if you grew up as a kid in the 1930's and lived anywhere where woods were plentiful, you learned to cut your own "switches". I'm gald that the practice was preety much a thing of the past by the time I was a young lad (1960's). I did get the strap twice in my life though, and kind of think I desearved it. It did make an impression and I quickly changed my evil ways.
