Hi bozodog, this needs to be quoted.

The Pack is coming on turkey day, how about my Packers and your Detroit Lions coming out from the shadows.

Yep back to back Super Bowls may happen.

Hi Bozodog

Ouch re-reading the joke again is a lot closer to reality than others may think.

In Wisconsin we can even walk on water (ice) fishing.

We sure got more bars than many per population.

Too much kool aid at the uncles farm decided to ride a milk heifer cow, did well until I got hungry for a rare beef steak, what's a soft bite on the neck darn ground is hard besides a possible cow pie.

Yep my uncle said she never forgot me and would run away when spotting my car or me.

Said to say a true story, but live and learn to put the kool aid down earlier haha

Thought oof-dah was reserved for the upper Mi. crowd.

Milking a cow and to squirt a barn cat, we became friends.

Heavy forbid if my gas station didn't have live bait or kool aid.

Go Pack Go and repeat the Super Bowl, Go Badgers Go to the Rose Bowl.

Life is good...
