Ooooo, I remember the first time I walked into a gathering of hippies and
saw a bunch of guys in hippie skirts.  My redneck brother was with me and

"sissies" came running out of the woods with a HUGE fallen TREE for the
fire.  He shut up.  Mmm  thanks, Geege, now I have an appetite for
breakfast.  (:
