Having time to spare can be invaluable to a youngster. Your old man wouldn't have just a pinched off minute here and there to offer, but would have whole days, nights, and even weeks at a time to spend with you, often outdoors, nearly always away from the womenfolk, who generally were concerned that the male portion of the group kept there 'nose to the grindstone' as it were. This 'grubbing for money' can make one rather unpleasant and can cause one to fritter away their life in pursuit of it if one is not careful. Phrases like 'Stay out of trouble' (really, what's the point?), and 'Staying on the high road' (I never found nothing good on the high road, but on the low road, it was guns, tools, Ford roadsters, vessels of all sizes, bikes, aircraft, parts of all kinds and various equipment, some of which is still unidentified to this day) hung in the air around the female portion of the group. They would also endeavour to keep you under their ever watchful gaze. Their preoccupation with keeping sharp objects, tools, guns, matches, bad language and dirt away from the inquisitive hands of the young male population of the group had reached a fever pitch one summer. I had been sent immediately upon being ejected from the front door of the schoolhouse to the confines of a ranch owned and operated by a retired uncle for the summer. The women folk had committed a major miscalculation on this one.
