Do I need to install and anti-bonking shield?
*wrings hands nervously*

Or do we just buy a crash helmet for C'milo?

Only if you want your head in a vise! Of course some people say it helps with headaches. Actually certain pressure points in the body help relieve stress. Compression of the joints releases certain chemicals in the body that relaxes the muscles. Some pressure points can make you squeal like a pig in pain Yes, I do know which ones too *squeezes C'milo's head a little tighter"

Pssst, Hans.... It's y'all not ya'll. Contraction for "you all", a lovely phrase from the midwestern and southern states of the US.

I must say that I have always spelled it ya'll. Maybe it is a dialect I don't know! Though I am northern so who knows! I also say worsh for wash. Everybody including my husband makes fun of me for saying it that way! I due to the fact I was raised by an Oky (person from Oklahoma).

Oklahomans aren't really Southerners. Even though they're close neighbors, we don't claim them

It is y'all.

Oh--Okie. I'm an Arkie and they are Okies (I think. I guess I need to break out the Merle cd to make sure )
