    BULLCRAP !

    True, you wanted a hen that was laying, but you had to have the silver laced wyandotte too, then you liked the gold laced also, if I remember correctly. I will only admit that I talked you into trying a Roo, then you went all over the state gathering up any chicken that would let you hold it !

    So don't go blaming your obsession on me...... I'm just the " enabler " [​IMG]

    What was the outcome of your ebay bids, didn't you win any of them ?

    And, how many chicks did you get out of your hatch, and how many of them were Marans ?

    All I wanted was a hen. Your sweet chicken talk sent me with a SLW and a GLW. Much like a siren to the sailors I was lead straight into more birds. Your chicken song was strong lol. It was you my friend that enabled what has become somewhat of an obsession....or maybe not somewhat lol.

    LOL Thankfully and not so thankfully I didn't win any lol. I am still getting outbid notices. With all the notices I have gotten I started adding it up. [​IMG] If I had won them all at the max bids it would have been WELL over the original $200 I thought it was gonna be on eggs........Long story short....drinking and ebay is nearly as bad a drinking and driving. The consequences could be life altering lol.

    For those who think we Pennsylvanians 'talk funny' or use 'big words',
    here's why ...

    Once a Pennsylvanian, ALWAYS a Pennsylvanian!

    About Pennsylvanians: You've never referred to Philadelphia as anything but
    ‘Philly’ and New Jersey has always been ' Jersey .'

    We don't go to the beach -- we go ‘down the shore.'

    You refer to Pennsylvania as 'PA' (pronounced Pee-Ay).
    How many other states do that??

    'You guys' (or even 'youze guys', in some places) is a perfectly acceptable
    reference to a group of men and women.

    You know how to respond to the question ‘Djeetyet?' (Did you eat yet?)


    You know that the Iggles play football and so do the Stillers.

    You learned to pronounce Bryn Mawr, Wilkes-Barre , Schuylkill , the
    Poconos, Tamaqua, Kutztown, Tunkahannock, Bala Cynwyd, Kishacoquillas, Duquesne and
    Monongahela, Catasauqua, Hokendauqua and Conshohocken.

    And we know Lancaster is pronounced Lank-ister, not Lan-kaster.

    You know what a ‘Mummer’ is, and are disappointed if you can't catch at
    least highlights of the parade.

    At least five people on your block have electric 'candles' in all or most
    of their windows all year long.

    You know what a 'State Store' is, and your out-of-state friends find it
    incredulous that you can’t purchase liquor at the mini-mart.


    Words like 'hoagie,' 'crick,' 'chipped ham,' 'dippy eggs', 'sticky buns,'
    'shoo-fly pie,' 'lemon sponge pie', 'pierogies' and 'pocketbook' actually
    mean something to you. (By the way, that last one's PA slang for a purse!)


    You not only have heard of Birch Beer, but you know it comes in several
    colors.

    You know the difference between a cheese steak and a pizza steak sandwich,
    and you know that you also can't get a really good one anywhere outside of
    the Philly area. (Except maybe in Atlantic City on the boardwalk.)

    You know that Blue Ball, Intercourse, Paradise, Climax, Bird-in-Hand,
    Beaver, Moon, Virginville, Mars, Bethlehem, Hershey, Indiana, Sinking Spring,
    Jersey Shore, State College, Washington Crossing, Jim Thorpe, King of
    Prussia, Wind Gap, and Slippery Rock are all PA towns ... and the first three
    were consecutive stops on the old Reading RR! (PS - That’s pronounced
    Redd-ing.)



    You can identify drivers from New York, New Jersey, Maryland or other
    neighboring states by their unique and irritating driving habits.

    A traffic jam in Lancaster County is 10 cars waiting to pass a horse-drawn
    carriage on the highway. (And remember ... that’s Lank-ister!)

    You know several people who have hit deer more than once.

    Driving is always better in winter because the potholes are filled with
    snow.

    As a kid you built snow forts and leaf piles that were taller than you were.


    You know beer doesn't grow in a garden, but you know where to find a beer
    garden.

    You actually understand all this and send it out to other Pennsylvanians or
    former Pennsylvanians. It's scary, isn't it!

    YEAH! THAT'S GOOD OL' ‘PA’ AND WE LOVE IT!



    And
    If You Marry A Pennsylvania Girl ..........

    Three friends married women from different parts of the country.....

    The first man married a woman from Utah . He told her that she was to do
    the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third
    day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

    The second man married a woman from Lousiana. He gave his wife orders that
    she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he
    didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third
    day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done, and there was a huge
    dinner on the table.

    The third man married a girl from Pa. He ordered her to keep the house
    cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table
    for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second
    day he didn't see anything but by the third day, some of the swelling had
    gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, and his arm was healed
    enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher. He
    still has some difficulty when he pees.


    Youn's all play nice now once. I hafta make dippy eggs.
