Monochrome,
A commonly heard colloquialism in this region, "Present tents, past tents, future tents." Dialects are wonderful.
Looks like a Boy Scout Troop WIsh List

And when I was in college there was a nice young lady from Winston-Salem who had the sweetest dialect. I drove an hour to Sweet Briar and an hour back three times every week just to hear her say bacon.

Nicest young lady I've ever asked to dance and to the day the prettiest girl I've ever seen. Father owned a dozen dry cleaning stores.

Dumb as a box of rocks.

Some marry for love. Some marry for money. I married smart.
I did the love part... She had/has the smarts, or not... by marrying me...

Well I made some money, and we fell in love later and she's still smart so it's all good, right?

And she makes a mean New England Macaroni and Cheese Casserole.

Who called this the Cheese thread?

I don't quite understand what's going on here, and I already bought a K-3, but I wanted to state for the record that I love Cheese.

That's really immaterial to this thread.

Then you are good. You get extra points if you like bacon as well, but that's optional.

What happened....I took a break for Christmas to eat pork pie and imported French cheese and I come back to nearly 50 pages of unread posts.

I'm assuming I don't need to read then ask as the topic won't have deviated very much...

And no, I didn't buy a k3... I'd have compromised if Santa had dropped one down the chimney, but he didn't.....
