Thank God for fathers who had the wisdom to actually raise their children without the use of a television or Game Boy. They looked you in the eye and spoke great truths. My father, (RIP) was indiscernible to me from a hole in the ground, if you catch my drift. I loved him, I forgave him.
Mom was a saint first for putting up with that and secondly for teaching me all those things that a good father would. She also raised five boys on her own.
Although I prefer the direction this thread has taken, on the subject, "TSA Locks", I learned that there are two approved locks. The locks with the Liberty insignia are made in the USA the other is not. Does that make the decision easier?
