WOW,

Visitor Add-ons page #4

This must be catch'y


To all my "Jersey" people, you will laugh when you read some of these....to my
"out of towners", you will probably laugh, too, but not know what you are laughing at !
I can relate to probably 75% of these, so that gives you outsiders a glimpse
(a scarey glimpse), of our home life!
If you don't understand these, you're not a "piney"
