    I went to visit her family in the Shenendoah Valley area and we went for breakfast on a Sunday morning and it took us an hour and a half to hit the nearest IHOP and guess what? They were closed because everyone was in church. They didn't open til noon. We passed one town that had a sign that said Welcome to _______! (I forget the name now) Pop. 3. Right after the sign there was a gas station and a house, and on the front porch of the house was a guy his wife and daughter. And another sign about 200 feet down the road from the first sign "Thanks for coming!" Honest! I felt like I was on the Twilight Zone and stepped back 100 years. It was fun though and the people were real nice. It was just too quiet and after three or four days I wanted to come back to CT. It was real nice country though that's for sure! Eddie:)

    the adverb "to be" is not proper, to say "the car needs washed" is proper

    Hey younzes, eating cold pizza the next day is a burgh (not burg) thing. Plus it also depends on the pizza.

    Thanks lethal tupperwa. This is good stuff. It was very nice meeting you and your wife and we hope to see you again sometime.

    I graduated from the University of Illinois. You should be proud to know that the announcer always gave the score of the Slippery Rock football game at the halftime of our game! They most often received a resounding round of applause from the crowd. :)

    Oh, and I'm a real birch beer fan, too. Lots of old memories in this post.

    My god, that was refreshing. I've been living in upstate NY for 6 years now. I miss good dippy eggs, birch beer, and scrapple. Oh, and my car needs washed. And (one that was missed - at least for South Central Pee Ay), the pizza is all, so no cold pizza for breakfast.
