First it was hot coffee, now machetes!

Proper thinking Englishmen outraged that 15-year-old boy purchased a machete over the Internet. Good Lord. By the time I was ten I was busy cutting down trees in our backyard with an axe, and I’m quite sure I brought a machete home from Puerto Rico when I was twelve. My misadventures thereafter had nothing to do with being exposed to sharp blades as a lad and I suspect England could survive this onslaught too. Or it could have a generation ago.

    Interesting. Growing up in South Florida, machetes were easily available. You purchased your in Puerto Rico. Is it a Hispanic thing? I can’t find one anywhere in Connecticut!!

      Well in Pureto Rico, they were ubiquitous because of the sugar cane. Not too much of that here in Connecticut but still a useful tool for whacking brush.
