An Interview with TMFBreakerRob

Last updated: 7/16/2010
The Fool:
Your most heroic moment in life?
TMFBreakerRob:
Well, I saved our cat from an attacking mastiff....LOL... Broke a broom over its back and stabbed it with the broken handle. Doesn't sound PC, but it had the cat pinned to the ground with its jaws and there didn't seem to be time for negotiation. ;)
The Fool:
As a former child and possibly parent of one now, share your best advice about raising children.
TMFBreakerRob:
Patience, prayer, love and laughter. "Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not turn from it." >> Prov 22:6 >> This can be a real trial of faith! ;)
The Fool:
What's the best advice you've ever received?
