    Thanks, Mr R. Any gastrointestinal trauma I experience today is on you. So to speak I mean! So to speak!

    “… inconsiderate ne’er-do-wells …” – that does not sound like Laura Ingalls Wilder.

    That was my MORE REALISTIC name for that awful TV show, I had to flee screaming (in my head) every time it came on.

    Oh, for those good old days of being “third on a cob”.

    I can imagine what Laura Ingalls would use a corn cob for in such a place and such acoutrement, but, she being Laura Ingalls, I would have thought she only had use for the leaves…

    I grab a lightly used one in those circumstances. Evidently in days of old they used a sponge on a stick, kept in a common bucket. We have progressed after all.

    We had a saying about corn cobs back in the day: “Gets off all the new and some of the old.”

    Hey! She said “all right” instead of “alright.” Good for her.

    There were two buckets. A large one of red corn cobs and a small one of white corn cobs. The white were used to verify you did a proper job with the red ones.

    If you think you have it rough… try reading Wilder’s ‘The Long Winter’, an accurate depiction of the winter of 1880-81. I did recently (after seeing a video about it on YouTube) and I’ll never bitch about anything again.
