I spit out my tea reading this one . . .
"Many estates are spent in the getting, since women for tea forsake spinning and knitting, and men for punch forsake hewing and splitting." Benjamin Franklin

I'm not into hewing, but I do enjoy splitting, it keeps me young

Its tough giving up on hewing and splitting, but punch is worth it.

I had no idea. Does anyone know where I can get punch? I'd like to at least try it before I start this week's hewing.

Yes, darkyr, by all means try it; otherwise, how do you know whether it's worth the sacrifice?

My family had to go without stockings, because forsook spinning and knitting to sit and guzzle tea.
