Day 118 - Sis

Bought a straw broom to sweep the outside patio/porch here.  Made me think what this broom was used for besides cleaning up. Let's see, a horse when you play cowboys and indians, (either side), flying on it when you pretended to be a witch, a bat you used in the ninth inning with two outs, two strikes, three balls and you hit the homerun to win the World Series, a bug swatter, a javelin, a jousting stick. So many uses but for the mother of seven wild kids, (my Mom), it came in handy when your kids would hide under a bed to escape punishment and you would take that broom, get down on your knees and jab at those hooligans until they surrendered to your command to come out NOW. Amazing that so many people always talk about how sweet and gentle my Mother was.  Ask me about her flyswatter method, ho boy!;-
