like they are fighting. I can’t understand why they would take a picture of two
little boys fighting. Do they teach boys to do that? They are teaching two
little kids to fight. It’s on the beach.
never teach kids to do that. It is not good. I’d tell the boys that it’s not
right. I’d like for ‘em to play ball. Soccer, maybe? Or, football. There are
all kinds of good stuff they can do. I’d tell them that’s a no-no. You don’t do
that at no time. You be NICE to people.
at the beach, not fight. Learn to swim. Enjoy the water. Play volleyball on the
beach. But no fighting.
Teach ‘em to
enjoy the good things in life – to be nice to one another, be kind, and grow up
to be gentle – ‘cause I would never in my life do that (fight).
I have five
boys and I warned them when they were growing up in Columbia, Pennsylvania. I
warned ‘em what’s good and bad for them. They are all good boys. I watched ‘em
grow up to be nice, young, friendly boys, all five of them! I didn’t have no
trouble with my kids, at all. No trouble at all while they grew up. I am really
happy that they grew up like that. I tried to do the right thing and it seems
it worked. I must have done something right.
they are all grown up and have children of their own. I think they did alright.
I hope and pray that they teach the same thing I taught them. If they were here
right now, I’d say to them, “I hope they teach ‘em the same thing I taught you.”
I’d also say, “I love them very much and I’m glad they took my advice and teach
their families the same thing. I don’t want to have to go to the hospital to
get a shoe out of their butt.”
I wouldn’t have
changed anything. I raised a happy-go-lucky family. And, they did the same. I
think I did a good job. I am 97-years old. I have a wonderful family. That is
the main thing in life. That is the best part of life you can get. It makes me
feel better that I did a good job for them to be gentlemen. I can’t change it.
Everything worked out good for me.
