Good rules, Mike - great rules, actually..  I hope I didn't disobey any before they were written.  I kept thinking JAH just needed to realize what she'd said, because I didn't think she'd honestly meant to hurt anyone..

Hey Redneck, Mike only said no spittin' on the SIDEWALK. Sounds like a big ole loophole to me! We don't even have dad blamed sidewalks on my street.

Thanks again, Mike.

Thank you Mike. I'm sorry it was necessary but we appreciate you and this charitable board.

Common sense gets lost at times. If you don't like a topic, don't read the posts and don't comment if you can't be constructive.

Easy, peasy.

Thanks Mike! 

This site has been a lifesaver for me...

Good to have the 'rules' set out in plain black and white.  Most of us don't really need to be reminded but it's good to have it said anyway.

as long as we can spit on the grass, all the rules are pleasantly easy to follow.
Mike, blessings for your kindness, generosity and humor
