When I went up to check, Doug and Dan age about 8 and 6 looked guilty and when I asked what was up, they sheepishly produced a collection of miniature cars. When I heard their explanation we parked the cars in a box and marched over to Stolers. Bill met me at the door and I explained what had happened. He immediately took over – scolded the boys about their honor and parents and required them to sort through the Sunday papers to make it up, and I left it up to them to honor their sentence. And so they did so well that when they had finished their sentences – they were hired for quite some time.
