When I was a kid my mother would say to me "If you don't eat what I give you , you can go without"

Now she's a granny she says to her grandchildren "Of course  I'll cut the crusts off my darling"

What's that all about  >410<

Mr Loopy's mum used to tell him that, if he was naughty, he'd turn into one of the horrible scary 'gargoyle' doorknockers that some people had years ago!   :o

He's never been the same since!!
