    For those of you from Wisconsin laugh; for those who are no longer in WISCONSIN reminisce; and for those of you are just lucky enough to know someone from WISCONSIN, maybe this will help you understand them a bit better.

    * You know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction

    * You define summer as three months of bad sledding.

    * You know where Waukesha is AND can pronounce it.

    * You decided to have a picnic this summer because it fell on a weekend.

    * You can visit Luxemburg, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, New Berlin, New London & Poland all in one afternoon.

    didn't think so..figured noncheddar heads would ask what a leiny was.

    I actually hooked a group of 20 navy type on the stuff while waiting for transportation from La Crosse to Ft McCoy for a training evolution. They about keel-hauled me when they found out they couldn't get it back home. :supergrin: :supergrin: :supergrin: :supergrin: :supergrin: :supergrin:
