Back-to-school rules can be a real education
Back-to-school time. When I was a kid, mom would take me to the general store, down the dirt road, to buy school supplies. All I needed was a slate, some chalk and an old flour sack to carry my lunch in. One year I got a Robin Hood-themed flour sack, with a matching Civil War-era canteen for my milk.
