: : : : back to Philadelphia
: : : Your dispatch about the treacherous Buffalo Sabres has been passed to Commandant Clarke and all Broad Street Bullies have been put on full alert. Reinforcements have been ordered east through South Jersey and across the Walt Whitman Bridge to Broad Street. Another detachment will travel the Blue Route south to the end and then take the Ninety-Five to Broad Street, and a third will arrive via the Schuykill. The troops will gather at the First Union Centre with a rousing cheer of “GO FLYERS!!!!”

: : Goody Sandy,
: : It is good(y) Sandy, to see that you FINALLY root for a GOOD team! You are a wee bit schizo though, aren't you? You root for Flyers, but not the ubiquitous Philadelphia Phillies? Tsk tsk.
: : What did Boston ever give us but Sam Adams, blockades, snowball throwing mobs, tax evaders and a war nobody wanted but them.
: : Now Philadelphia.....aaaaahhhhh. Ben Franklin wise and witty, the Declaration of Independence, capitol of our nation, largest city in America, the longrifle, city of brotherly love - and let's not forget Bookbinder's wonderful snapper soup, home made scrapple, our thirteen star flag all in a circle, the first formal fire department, the first post office (there ya go Richfed!) oh my! I could go on and on!!!

OH MY GOD!!! CHEESE STEAKS!! I'd kill for a good REAL Philly cheese steak right about now. In fact, I think I'll start with Doc Mary!!!
You got my mouth watering now! Tastykakes yum! Especially the butterscotch crimpets and the Peanut butter tandykakes. I used to go to Ocean City just to get the flame broiled pork roll!!!
Went to O.C. several years ago and the Taylor Pork Roll place on the boardwalk was GONE! GONE!!! I thought my world had ended.
I thought that was always going to be a part of my life, and it was like Ocean City lost all its youthful memories without that place. Can't get a good flame broiled pork roll sandwich now, I don't think. I loved watching those things spin around on their racks from one end of the barbque pit to the other and I always got DOUBLES! Three our four at a sitting. MMMMMMM YUM.
Whaaaaa! I dont wanna be in Wisconsin anymore. I wanna go HOME!!!
How about funnel cakes? Fasnacht Day? Salmon broil on planks?
Shoo Fly Pie? Molasses cookies? Hassenpeffer? Tripe soup and
.....oh man am I getting hungry.
Hey Goody....you going to Gathering? It would be good to have another "local" there!
