For us, it's a natural; no learning curve for the oldsters. Bill_I_Am 26 January 2020 Or BOE break-in plans. ;-) LarryTheCrashTestDummy 26 January 2020 Oh goody! We have a secret code for communications when they lock us all up in the 'old folks home'. They'll never read our breakout plans!!! :^D TrudyTai 26 January 2020 I volunteer at a local food bank. The school next door sent over some 11 -12 year-olds to have the experience of volunteering. I wrote out instructions for them. Yep. You guessed it. They looked at me blankly and asked me to print. It IS sad. Bommom 26 January 2020 I think my grandson had handwriting instruction for maybe 40 minutes each day for a week. That was it. I'd write him notes and he couldn't read them. He told me if I wanted to keep a secret from him, I should write it in cursive handwriting. :-( Plumpossum 25 January 2020 Oh, Gayle, I have inherited some memorabilia from TAP and others, and Thomas's handwriting is, in my opinion, a work of art. When he was in grade school, students who fell short of perfection must have had their knuckles rapped. I will try to post some examples of TAP's handwriting.I suspect that kids today are not taught much penmanship, and it takes no talent to push buttons on a smartphone. Bommom 25 January 2020 Cute! I can see where he's coming from. Of greater note: Look at Grandpa's handwriting. It's beautiful! I'm sure there are zero kids in school today who can write as well. They also can't read handwriting. Too bad. It's a lost art. Plumpossum 25 January 2020 TrudyTai, no apologies needed. The kind of wry humor represented by this puzzle probably went out of style long ago. Now it seems that humor has to hit like a sledge hammer in order for some folks to appreciate it. Thanks for visiting and commenting! TrudyTai 25 January 2020 Thanks for the explanations, Plum and everyone! I get the humor now... sorry I was slow on the up-take. Plumpossum 25 January 2020 And thank YOU, Pat. You've got it just right! (New England features very prominently in my family history, by the way.) patw 25 January 2020 If you give this just a little thought, you can figure out that the son had been complaining to Dad about some of his critters harassing his rabbit. They obviously weren't hurting it and, therefore, Dad came back with these outlandish solutions to the problem which, as a New Englander (we tend to be a bit wry), I find very funny. Thanks, Plum! Plumpossum 25 January 2020 You are right about Grampa, dustydog. I never knew him, but if he was anything like his son, he was the gentlest of souls. dustydog 25 January 2020 A bit "warped". Probably thought of this when all the critters were chasing each other all over the house. But I doubt he ever actually did anything about it. (Grandpas might act grumpy, but inside, they were pretty nice.) Dusty, who hopes! Plumpossum 25 January 2020 Tsk... LarryTheCrashTestDummy 25 January 2020 Oh, I know you Plum! Behind all those Tsk, Tsk, Tsks there a rather wickedly wry sense of humor! ;-D flicka43 25 January 2020 I showed this to my cat. He did not laugh. Plumpossum 25 January 2020 Thanks, Bill. I guess tastes in humor change over time, leaving some of us behind. Bill_I_Am 25 January 2020 And apparently he liked rabbits! Not at all like today's PC humor. Thanks, Plum! Plumpossum 25 January 2020 Larry, I'm glad you understood this for the jest it is. Tincup 25 January 2020 OMG! Glad they kept this little communication in the family... And glad to hear it was a joke. Plumpossum 25 January 2020 TrudyTai, grandpa was teasing my dad, his son; they both loved cats. This sketch is well over 100 years old. LarryTheCrashTestDummy 24 January 2020 Yes, I guess that he did! YOW! Best not let the ASPCA or PETA get wind of this - they might not understand that it's in jest!! ;-D Thanks, Plum! JM_Cookie 24 January 2020 What year was this? TrudyTai 24 January 2020 Certainly a "different" sense of humor. I don't see funny here at all. :-( Why this advertisement?
