  1. These were all great. I ended up watching every one of them all the way through, which is praise indeed from me when it comes to Youtube videos. Your mother has a wonderful accent, first-class delivery and a very lively sense of humor. I liked all her stories, but my favorite was the one about five whippings in a day. It had such a hilarious punchline.

  2. RE 5 whippings.

    Parents used to take the kids in back of a woodshed and give them “what for.” There is a generation that doesn’t understand why sometimes that’s what it takes to get a point across. Like the time I ran out into the street (an 8 lane highway) and got “what for” with an explanation that it hurt much worse than being hit by a car. πŸ™‚
