I'm not really sure why I like these. There is just something about seeing a paddle for sale in a 'vanilla' type place. Maybe it's because they are hard to find now.....they harken back to another time when paddlings were more accepted...even expected.
Plus they usually have interesting sayings on them.
I was able to pick up a few of these in a tourist trap in Central Missouri in '07. When I went back last year, they were gone. I'm glad I grabbed them when I did.
I'm not really sure what the wording on this one means...but I thought it was cute.
One of the problems with today's souvenir type paddles is that they are made for show. They typically are not thick enough for any real use. As evidenced by the crack in this particular item which I picked up in Vegas a few years ago.....
Luckily I have plenty of other paddles to do the heavy lifting :)
