    We are not bringing Aiden.  He didn't do his chores.

    I like it! Don't do what you are supposed to and suffer the consequence. You don't see that much anymore. Good Grandpa.

    You should ask Mason what happens when you get a smart mouth and act ugly during turkey season. He wasn't happy with missing the next morning's results of a 20 minute hunt ;) I sort of felt bad pulling the trigger but then again it was a hard lesson learned for him. 7/8" beard (yes, you read that right) and 1 3/8" spurs.

    I get onto the wife for saying there will be consequences then backing out on them, in my experience with my own kids and in life in general, sometimes you gotta shoot a hostage..

    But you usually only have to do it once!    The next time you threaten something, people tend to toe the line knowing you aren't bluffing.

    Exactly.  Follow through - don't threaten to do it.  Do it.  My boys learned this once when they started grab@$$ing in the van once on a family vacation before we got out of the driveway good.  I quickly became my father - "Don't make me pull this van over."  They did.  That time.  If I ever started to say those words again, the back seats got quiet quickly.  LOL

    It works as an employer too.  I had a server and a hostess arguing in my restaurant on the floor in front of guests, are you effing kidding me???  Fired both on the spot.  None of this She said this, yea but she did this crap.  You're both gone.    End of discussion.

    A youngin is like a young dog (I know that sounds bad). The first time you don't punish for not doing as told, you are back at the starting point. No matter how far you were along in the training.
    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you

    In a debate I once said, "generally children are like dogs, there are no bad dogs, just bad owners".
    One woman went berserk accusing me of calling children "dogs".
    There is none so blind as those that will not see.

    I was not sure what our schedule would be and did not reserve a room in time.  We will be fishing out of Carrabelle in the morning so we will probably drop by and say hi, buy some raffle tickets and head back to Ga before it gets too late.  I’ll have 2 under 15 yrs old with me.

    You owe me $200 for the room BTW :wink: . Those boys had a blast and I'm glad.
