    Re: DO YOU REMEMBER ?????

    Here's one:

    At work the other day, one of the younguns (she's 21, I'm 28) had asked me if I had ever watched the show the Osbornes. I said yeah, I have. She then says, "well what happened to Donnie and Marie? Weren't they part of that family?"
    I Shoot Like A Girl.
    Damn Good.
    Ah f*&%it!

    Ahh,the good ole days-she also thought "wipeout' was a war!ha ha ha

    I remember $.99 bottles of Ripple and Boone's Farm Apple wine. [img]/ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] We thought that was the good stuff. [img]/ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
