Hey I remember reading some very funny stories (jokes) but cannot find them. Where are they? I do like a good laugh.
Thanks so much,

Melissa:

The running jokes and fun stuff on this forum tend to respect no boundaries and are spread all over the place. It's starts on one thread like Bill's 'Might need help with Lee' thread and spreads onto a bunch of threads from there. Most of the 1000 or 2000 post threads are a lot of fun. If you use the search feature for 'spray cheese', 'chocolate martinis, or 'socialist flour' you'll probably find most of the funny threads.

I hope thats helpful.

Lee

Hey everyone,

Thank you! I'm sharing the stories while at the gym and they are a big hit.

Bill - I live in Northern Virginia, the Woodbridge area. I Love Va but it's become a bit too busy.

Hi Missy! Yeah, Nova is way too busy. I've got a wonderful ex-wife up there and my oldest son, Daniel, lives in Manassas, and it's crazy just to go visit. Everybody likes to come to visit me here (Tappahannock area) because we just hang out around the campfire and talk about how good the grilled/smoked meat is. Maybe we can meet sometime at 7-11 or whatever and I can buy you a cup of coffee. (wink)
