Oh sweet Honey-O'Pot with oomlauts over the cap "O" and BBQ. Cuz that's how the dickering chips fell knowing with some astuteness 3 First Placements would just go to your heads. laffs

It WAS a very tough Hudging feat. What happens in Chambers STAYS in Chambers, have to repeat.

Still in HCP;o}mode but that's how the delectibles usually crumble—laffs

I must say a great and wonderful job was done by all the entrants.Such fabulous fotos for fall fun and frolics.

Now that the hard hard work is over I shall do the dance of joy . . . and one large glass of ginger ale and cranberry juice for me please.

Yous drunken schrimps just calm down and don't be fallin off the table tops while doing the can-can stomps.

Let me get to the chocolate and where is the cheesecake ?
