That Ed animation is great! Is that Ed's response to his wife saying "Will you hand me the shovel?"?

Junior's Truck Stop!!
It's just a few miles down the road from me. I'm guessing if I say it's still there, as I haven't looked lately (don't go to the Falls too much), but I imagine if Junior's closed it would make the news here.
This city loves pizza & wings!!

Hey RonDon. Very cool avatar! I was online this morning, but I didn't see the post. Now how do I use it as my avatar? Do I use "save as" to my hard drive , then upload it, or what? Yeah, I know -- I'm supposed to be the one answering those kind of questions. Thanks for taking the time to make it, even if it was a ball.

Regarding the three legged pig joke - it's amazing how a joke can get changed from one person to another. The story is a little different from the one I heard a few years ago (that one was about a news reporter looking for a story), but the punch line is pretty much the same.

Ed

Ed,
How I saved mine was right click on the link to the attachment and click on Save target as. Then just saved it to my files and uploaded it in CP users options. Go to change avatar and click on the browse button to find it in your files. Hope that helps.
DJ

well David glad you liked the joke... as Ed L says... changes each time you hear it.. thats my version.

might be ed's response to his wife... "G" did I see "greg" somewhere ?

DJ's info is right on installing the avitar...Ed...

I had to ask when I changed mine... I was in the 800x600 screen mode and unable to see the "user cp"... as it turns out now I only need to use IE's full screen option and it shows at the bottom of the menu.
also right clicking on the open attachment works ... same as DJ's way...

now as to Juniors Truck Stop ..Vikki.... it seems it was always the dead of winter when I'd haul the produce to toronto and elsewhere.

cold and tired after many runs .... Juniors was always my oasis...
once thru the doors.... a warm lounge... a couple of brandies... and those giant buffalo wings...

You may not know.... but most parts of the country have no idea what true buffalo wings are...
many people call wings that ... or "hot wings" but they aren't..

I understand there are many versions of how they got their start... I subscribe to the one that involves the blizzard and all the stranded motorists ... and as they ran out of food all the cook could find was some wings (which no one ever ate then ) some blue cheese .. celery ... (maybe some carrots but I like to think the health freaks came up with that later) lots of tobasco.. butter and worstershire sauce... and.. a legend was born..

so any how I like to make them... not really sure if I get them right.
would make an interesting recipe for the "cookbook" part of the lounge..
for all the rest who read this... lets just say that without the blue cheese and celery to follow a true "buffalo wing" with... well ..."EL SCORCHO"
but worth the pain

yup...i'm Greg. I must have been drinking my third glass of wine when I typed my user name...It should have been Greg C. ...I wonder if I can change that?

I'm all for your wings recipe! Bring on the heat..i can take it!

I checked and I think Doug is the only one who can change a user name...and it's probably not worth the trouble.

By the way, I have really been getting a kick out of all your animations...one of my favorite threads to check out!
