Um, would you so happen to be speaking from experience?

By the way Ahoymatey, what part of Pennsylvania are you from? My husband and I have had a couple opportunities to go through a few years ago. In the northern part we tried our first Gob Cake. Then in Pittsburgh we had our first sandwiches (mine was pastrami, can't remember what he got) with french fries in them.

Oh I'm not talking about swearing even though I do swear when speaking but it takes too long to write it out plus I try not to offend people. I do have this odd sense of fart humor though. I just can't outgrow it & I don't think I ever will.

You should have seen all the men laughing when I walked in, pretended to squeeze my belly & asked.... are farts suppose to be lumpy. One of the guys had tears in his eyes from laughing so hard. They call me the crew mom because I am the oldest one on our crew & they didn't think that an older woman would ever come out and say something like that but then again, I felt the need to break the ice a bit.

We now have one man who is the oldest on our crew, he transferred from the other crew so at least I'm not the oldest even though I still get called 'mom' a lot.

Told mt nephew (who loves cats) that's why we kept cats, raising them for teriyaki...we usually serve venison at Christmas and rabbit at Easter.

But seriously, Welcome.

Nurses have to have a great sense of humor. You see too much in your line of work. I could never do it but I am thankful there are people like you that can handle it.

I want to eat at your house on holidays! I'd love that menu! I like doing lamb sometimes at Easter, it keeps my husband's one aunt away because she thinks that I'm being cruel by eating it on that holiday. I never thought of doing deer at Christmas but I may have to do that this year if I'm home for the holiday.

I've never heard of a cob cake sandwich. I'm in a county named Schuylkill, it's in the southern tier of the northeast part of the state. My area is full of Pa Dutch & we think the western part of the state eat some strange stuff. The way to pronounce my county is like this.... Skook Kull. It's a coal mining county & I am not sure but I believe it may be one of the poorest counties in the state. I moved here from Berks county in 1997. Reading is the largest city in Berks & has a high crime rate. I carry 2 handguns if I have to enter that city now, it's that bad. I was born there & our family moved in 1977 after being robbed 4 times in 8 years.

if you get to come to this state again, go to a store & ask for Lebanon bologna at the deli. It's soooooo good.

I'll have to wave as we drive between MA and OH! We make the turn at I-81 (love Wegmans, stop in Wilkes-Barre all the time, both ways!) and I-80 so you'll have to look north.

Rudolph for dinner...the nephew is old enough now he just rolls his eyes and shakes his head. I have to try my tricks on the grandkids now.

I like the fart thing! ROFL!!! They are a running joke in our house...

There's a Wegman's warehouse along I-81 in my county. I worked there for a few months after my MIL passed away & I didn't know what to do with myself. I took care of her for 3 years before she passed so I felt lost & took her death very hard. I was in the produce dept. working in a giant fridge that they keep at 34 degrees. It was a hard job & I don't like being as physical as I had to be there plus you are always frozen to the bone. They brought in some really neat foods though. I still want to try the lobster mushrooms I saw there.

I have a friend who is a neurologist, she doesn't understand my fascination about passing gas but her husband & I will sit there & joke about the most juvenile stuff. She's too smart for her own good & can't comprehend simple stuff.
