No implement is indestructible, of course. Still, it’s rather disheartening when a favorite disassembles before one’s eyes and right in the middle of a very strict lesson.
Here is the culprit. She claims she is not responsible for the unfortunate demise of the malacca stick, but whom else am I to blame?
Truth to tell, this variety of palm tree cane is much lighter and more porous than rattan, and if one is careful, what’s left is perfectly serviceable. At least until I get a senior girls’ cane, which is definitely on my most wanted list.
That one will be the sturdier brown rattan, and we’ll just see if any naughty bottom can damage such an item!
All for now.
