Hey, if you guys want some for Saturday it's a done deal... How about Coffee
Chocolate Truffles? Let me know...

Hey, bring'em! I'll almost eat anything with chocolate. ALMOST!

Prunette says,
If you don't bring' em you're toast.

I don't know what she means, but she was cleaning an automatic rifle.

Does M-16 mean anything to you?

If you understand, great.
If not, you're toast.

an NFL football player buried there. Does anyone know who it is?

No, really. There's an NFL player that is buried in that cemetery. I don't
remember his name.

Anyone remember the big slide that used to sit on the east side of the street, accross from Skate-O-Rama? It was in the early 70's when I went there and you slid down it on burlap sacks.. I think it was right next to where the Pizza Hut is.

ABSOLUTELY!!! I used to LOVE going down that thing...I was maybe 10 years old at the time...It was known as "THE GIANT SLIDE" and you could go up (and down) as many times as your legs could carry you up the stairs. It was awesome.

They used to have a virtual twin to it set up at the state fairgrounds, which was very popular and fun, so of course fair management immediately had it destroyed...

I remember it well and was interviewed by a TV station when I got to the bottom and was on the local news that day. Must have been 68,69 or 1970??
