Luckily, I was never taken to the woodshed!

Bevo: I was a Sunday school goer, too, in addition to being "enrolled" in the church's Wednesday night youth club. Looking back, this may have kept me from being sent by my parents to "reform school" as was often threatened. (I guess I was a Katzenjammer kid like Hans and Fritz). I also played on my church's basketball team, which leads me to: Go Cavs! Maybe, they will squeak out this series...
