Having a family heritage base in a coal mining area with a very high poverty rate, there were always 2 jokes I remember from every holiday visit...

1. Encourage the kids to be "bad"... we want Nick to buy more!
2. Encourage the kids to be "bad"... heat the house for free!

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09
