French fries anyone?

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

There's no justice in this world when some can eat every fat laden, cholesterol ridden food and remain thin and have ridiculously low cholesterol levels, and ones like myself gain weight reading the menu and have cholesterol levels to match .

I hear you Dave, although I don't have any cholesterol or high blood pressure problems I do have to be careful what I eat these days - the pounds pile on too easily. Like you I seem to put on weight just reading a menu.

My parents stayed thin all of their lives, but all the children have weight issues now.

I think Ron is one of those who can eat almost anything without gaining an ounce of weight, but he has had a heart attack and bypass surgery. I don't know if he has blood pressure and/or high cholesterol issues.

My husband is long and lean, but he has diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol - it must be something in the genes.

Kelly is too sexy to be related to her. She isn't that hot.

Also, the, "bitter I hate all men", expression on that womans face is far from Kelly's "come hither and let's play" face.

So no. No relation.

But, in this universe (out of the multi-verse) I do believe that is a relation of the evil Eeyore who rejected me and stepped on my face. Yeeaaah.... exact same look when I had a 7-inch stiletto go in my eye in the other reality.
*Shakes fist at Eeyore*

EDIT:
However, I like how your camera captured her tush.

LMAO! I've never worn 7" stillettos in my life so that was some other woamn you have me confused with. :lol:

I agree, fresh cut fries are the best and yes Brenda, lard is much better for deep frying tastewise than veggie oil!
