    Ah. Precocious children. Salinger is well pleased.

    Good thing Frazz was there. This is a metaphor for a school catching a child in the early part of their study difficulties so they won’t have to wait until college to learn the three r’s.

    It’s going to be a really short ride to the lesson if Frazz doesn’t move his foot out from under those shears quickly…

    Climbing trees is a kid bucket list item for sure.
    Who has not climbed a tree or pretty much anything that looked climbable as a kid?

    Are children allowed to climb trees these days? Will the parents be charged for allowing that?

    I’ve learned never to make the same mistake twice. It’s loads more fun to find entirely new mistakes to make!

    Of course you can count on Frazz to catch the child falling out of a tree. And you can absolutely count on football being pushed heavily, as if the schools are really a sports centers. Sometimes a public middle school will even place boys on the football team when they don’t even want to be there. (Must be the kickbacks from the uniform companies.) But you can’t count on the public schools to teach the basics.

    What ARE “the basics” these days? I.e., what knowledge and skills will help insure their holder a long and enjoyable life?

    My wife and I work at the same place. I was checking with one of the higher-ups on getting her schedule changed. He said, “Look at you, pulling strings”. I told him, “While you’re at it, go ahead and give her a raise.” Now we get to my axiom: If you’re going to pull strings, might as well grab a whole handful.

    At least she got a schedule change out of the deal.

    I would say the ability to read well is crucial. To gain this ability one has to read books and other literature. Our school didn’t have them. The second is the writing skills derived partly from experience in reading. But the student also has to have writing exercises for practice. I personally go on GoComics for that, much to the delight of Ewal Doh. Lastly, arithmetic should be thoroughly learned in all of its forms. Not just a smattering of addition and subtraction, along with an unreliable knowledge of multiplication.

    If you make mistakes make sure they are great ones and that they are new. You can’t get anywhere without mistakes. Just so long as you learn from them.

    My biggest mistake was learning the “Hey y’all, watch this !” phrase.
