That's Severe

I know in the olden days they would chop off people's hands for stealing. 

But this sign in a modern day store in America seemed just a little severe:
Shoplifters will be amputated

The worst part of it maybe is that they don't say what part of the shoplifter will be amputated. 

So much for compassion and helping the needy. 

L-rd have mercy! ;-)

When We Were Kids

My big sister and I.

Many moons ago.

Television with rabbit ears in the background.

That's when we all we had were 4 stations ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS.

We called it the "Zombie Box" because you could just stay glued to it for hours and tune the world out mesmerized at the moving pictures.

Everyone knew what was on every station, every hour of the day and still there was a TV Guide published weekly to check.

When the TV went fuzzy, you had to give it a clop on the side and magically the picture cleared up for a few minutes if you were lucky.

Those were the days. ;-)

(Thank you to my sister, Roz, for refreshing a copy of this to me)
