A COMMENTS SECTION has been added to the bottom, so your comments will appear there.

PET EXCHANGE If you're interested in a Pet Exchange again this year, please let me know. I can setup a grab bag kind of thing for the animals, too.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I have been undermotivated to create a pet grab bag list. It's just too busy. I know you all have mailings to do, so I won't delay things any longer. Sorry, pets. Bogart'll just get something extra from Santa this year.

    Here is the place for comments. If you send me something you want printed, I'll print it here.

    [DUKE] 11/29/99 - I've finally gotten the page updated. Sorry for any delay.
    [GLORIA] 11/26/99 - Could someone just please buy "Buzz" some new dog food? Avoid buying anything "chicken flavored."
    [GLORIA] 11/26/99 - Has anyone seen Katy in the Gap commercials yet?
    [GLORIA] 11/30/99 - Say, A-1, I never knowed that Martha Stewart sangs C&W. She's amazin, ain't she?
    [KATY] 12/1/99 - Just a hint Dan, maybe you don't need new shirts, i think if you stopped calling women/girls "broads" you would have an easier time picking them up. signed, some dumb blond broad
    [KATY] 12/1/99 - Will whoever has Auntie Carol PLEASE buy her waterbed sheets, they have been on her list for two years running! The same for poor A-1 and his bathrobe, have a heart people!!
    [AMY] 12/2/99 - What exactly is patchouli and is it legal?
    [AMY] 12/2/99 - I need the "fuzzy" in A1's "fuzzy bathrobe" it "woobie/polar fleece" or terrycloth, or silky?? specifize please
    [AMY] 12/2/99 - Danny sure has a lot of run on and wordy sentences in his list, but at least he's not asking for a "peppery" shirt to pick up the broads...
    [DAN] 12/2/99 - Katy: Thank you for posting the exact response expected of you regarding the "broads" classification of women and girls -- I thought of you the second I wrote it! It should be duly noted that I do not regularly call girls or women broads. However, on the occasion of making a joke, I will use such south side vernacular. I am sorry for having offended anyone and wish you all a very festive holiday season.
    In udder wurdssss--Asss a rezidnt of da South Site..I reserfff the rite to poke a couple two tree barps at broadsss. Tank you very much my frient!!
    [PAT] - 12/2/99 - A-1 would like a robe with thick terry cloth.
    [PAT] - 12/2/99 - Gloria...that was Marty Stewart.....What happened to the van......?
    [SARAH] - 12/2/99 - danny, why do you need to pick up boards, are you building a deck, or maybe a shed?
    [PAT] - 12/4/99 - Well........there are four people on the gift list that have not listed any suggestions. A-1 and Pat have two of them. This is putting a crimp in my shopping. I'm on a roll right now and I don't want to quit. Come on folks and lets keep the merchants happy.
    [RICH] 12/4/99 - To Pat: If you really need to shop for some one, feel free to consult my list. I guess I could accept an extra gift just to make you happy.
    [LYNN] 12/7/99 - I have never smelled the pachouli yankee candle but since I love yankee candles, and it certainly must be good since a couple people want it, I think I want one too, so just add it to my list this year.
    [MIKE] 12/7/99 - Rich, I am admitting I don't have your name but since you are soliciting for extra gifts I'll see what I can do about that back seat ride. (at least maybe a simulator!)
    [LYNN] 12/7/99 - Good luck with the back seat ride Rich, if I have never even flown with Mike, You can bet I'll get it before you if I can help it!
    [RICH] 12/8/99 - Now remember kids, a ride in the back seat of a plane (or simulator) is not to be argued over. As Mrs. Brady.....I mean Gloria..... always says "It's better to let the old uncle use the barf bag than to give mama a roll at 20,000 ft."
    [DAVE K] 12/9/99 - Can anything on K. Hunter's list be bought at Aldi's?
    [DAVE K] 12/9/99 - Who is in favor of opening the gifts all at once?
    [DAVE K] 12/9/99 - Is soup on the menu for dinner?
    [KATY] 12/9/99 - To dave k. When did you finally learn how to use email? and since you mail nasty comments, how about putting up a list. oh that's right, you were left off this year for bad behavior. and wasnt a Soup Thanksgiving good enough for you ,or do you need a Soup Christmas also? Happy Festivous!
    [BETTY] 12/9/99 - Who let Uncle Dave know the address of the website? He's been nothing but trouble ever since he got in this family
    [BETTY] 12/9/99 - Is there someone in the family who may be in need of an intervention based on the fact that the only thing on his list is alcohol?
    [GLORIA] 12/9/99 - Oh hell, I guess I'd like a patchouli candle too.
    [GLORIA] 12/9/99 - The gifts will not be opened all at once. However, you may have to eat a jello shot after each gift opened. Carol, do have enough room for overnight guests?
    [CAROL] 12/10/99 - I think we should start opening presents with the youngest so the "old ones" at the top will be able to ENJOY seeing everyones gifts too. (Or they can nap so they will be able to open their own!!)
    [CAROL] 12/10/99 - Gloria, I think after jello shots, it won't matter where anyone sleeps!!! Then Dave K. can fix us all Christmas breakfast, since he will have had a nap waiting to open his presents!!
    [DUKE] 12/10/99 - I thought about making a section for comments about Uncle Dave K., but then we wouldn't have a regular section anymore, so I didn't do it.
    [A-1] 12/10/99 - Do we have to wait for a call before we can open our gifts here? Jello shots...hmmmmm.
    [PAT] 12/10/99 - Joan, Pat, and Emily were asked to leave the Yankee Candle store in the Mall. We were spending too much time in front of the Patchouli candles.
    [PAT] 12/10/99 - Dave, we checked and they did not have any Drambuie flavored candles.
    [KATY] 12/11/99 - Why does Duke get to write in bold print? I want my comments in bold print, too. Or how about a pretty red color??
    [DUKE] 12/11/99 - Katy, your wish has been granted. I couldn't change the color, but I did change the font size. I hope you enjoy your distinguishing text.
    [EMILY] 12/11/99 - Too bad I won't be in Chicago this year.... I could have a jello shooter with Uncle Dav K. I could take my nap with Dave since he will be snoozing through the festivities..... I will even help him make breakfast since I like to wake up a 5am.
    [SARAH] 12/11/99 - Sounds like the Jello shots are a must this year. Shall they be in shooters, or maybe a green Christmas Tree mold?
    [CAROL] 12/11/99 - I just want to know who's making the jello shots since Lynn won't be here for Christmas Eve?
    [BETTY] 12/12/99 - Sounds like little Emily is getting off on the right foot shopping-wise. She fits right in the family. Maybe her daddy should consider a second job starting now to get a jump on things.
    [GLORIA] 12/12/99 - I will prepare the jello shots since I am in charge of orchestrating the opening of the gifts on Christmas Eve. SO HERE ARE THE RULES, GUYS AND GALS.......Any time a family member utters the words "Lets open the gifts all at once" that person will be required to eat a jello shot.
    [SARAH] 12/12/99 - Glora, having to do a jello shot isn't exactly punishment in this family. You might be hearing that phrase more than you wanted to.
    [DAN] 12/14/99 - Katy where are you? This page is getting boring without you!!!
    [HARRIET] 12/15/99 - Hey, you caninces, how come you couldn't stop chasing your tales or licking your, never mind, long enough to set up a pet present exchange? I'm going to have to buy myself a present to make up for it. Next year let the felines handle it.
    [DAVE K] 12/15/99 - Dan: Katie is busy checking out the bargain tables at Aldi's
    [DAVE K] 12/15/99 - I think we should open gifts one at a time.
    [DAVE K] 12/15/99 - Can Katy's fish gifts be bought at the bridge?
    [BETTY] 12/15/99 - I thought Harriet was a Harry-it???
    [KATY] 12/15/99 - to Dan and all concerned family members: i have been active on the webpage, except the font has been reduced sooooo much on my comments, no one can see it. hopefully this message will get through, if the man in charge decides im worthy enough. thank you for your concern.
    [KATY] 12/15/99 - to mean uncle dave: no, i have not been at Aldi's. my time has been spent at the G.D. Gap, please get it right.
    [KATY] 12/15/99 - i have to agree with mean uncle dave, shrimp from the bridge would be a nice christmas eve meal.
    [DUKE] 12/15/99 - Katy, it's obvious how much the family needs you on this page. Your original wish has been granted. Just don't ask for blinking red text...
    [JOANNA] 12/15/99 - Can we open all the gifts at the same time?
    [DUKE] 12/15/99 - You know, I'm for opening all the gifts at the same time, too. I have one question, though? Who's gonna make me do a jello shot?
    [KATHY] 12/16/99 - Will uncle Rich get his own "out of the closet" comment section? Not that there's anything wrong with that.
    [PAUL] 12/16/99 - I realize that, by joining in this Judge Family stream of consciousness, I offer myself up as a prime target to the snipers who wish get me in their cross-hairs (Amy, Katy to name a couple). However, I can't resist but give you my reactions as I get up to speed on some of this conversation. KATY: As I peruse your wish list and some of your comments, all I can say frighten me the way clowns frighten Kramer. AMY: I realize you live in Indiana now, so I'll type this slowly...specifize is not a word. That's it - I'm selling my Dayton Hudson stock JOANNA: Shoes are required for XMAS eve. RICH: Up for climbing into a bottle of Irish Mist with me this year? SARAH: You are an angel girl for helping watch young Timmy while he was sick. DUKE: You're a Saint for maintaining this hootenanny. DAVE K aka Timmy's Grandpa: Your courage is inspiring. You've encouraged me to pick up the torch again and campaign for a X-Mas eve of Soup and presents which are unwrapped simultaneously. We'll get there soon - Fight the good fight! ALL JUDGE WOMEN: Could you be a little more specific about what you want for X-mas? ya know...colors, sizes, styles, etc...
    [PAUL] 12/16/99 -Is A-1 a person or a steak sauce?
    [PAUL] 12/16/99 - This Pachouli nonsense has gone too far. I don't know what Pachouli is, but I bet I know why you burn cover the smell of something else, right?????
    [JOANNA] 12/16/99 - Well Paul, I was gonna let your attacks on me & my sisters slide, that is until I read your actual list, and excuse me, but Thin Lizzy is NOT crappy music. Come on, Jail Break, a Classic I tell ya!!
    [MIKE] 12/16/99 - To everyone, since I cannot be there for the Christmas Eve party this year, I thought I would at least make a donation appropriate for this family. I am bringing home a 1.75 L bottle of Drambuie for everyone enjoy! Sorry, no Irish Mist, Paul. Oh yeah, and if I were going to be there, I too would vote for all presents at once, and I guess soup would be fine with me also.
    [KATY] 12/16/99 - Hey Paul, i was wrong. youre not boring anymore, you were just saving up. but i am waiting to see if you will actually follow through on your proposal to uncle rich concerning the bottle of Irish Mist.
    [KATY] 12/16/99 - oh, and Paul, i agree with Joanna, Thin Lizzy is not crap, i think they were the original singers of your favorite song, "Birds of a Feather"
    [A-1] 12/17/99 - A-1 would hate to spread a nasty rumor about a family member. However, here goes. Rich after a looong evening at a family party allegedly pulled Al's name from a grab bag drawing and asked "Who is A-1?". Now would Rich be confused at the end of an evening? The name has lingered and personally I do like the steak sauce.
    [JOANNA] 12/17/99 - Mike, I would like to officially declare you my new favorite cousin, that is unless someone else would like that honor. All you have to do is bring a bottle of Absolut to the festivities. Oh ya, and can we open all the gifts at the same time?
    [PAUL] 12/17/99 - To Dave K. - we have grass roots support for simultaneous-gift-opening! Mike and Joanna are on board! We can make this happen! Remember, no one thought Hickory could beat South Bend Central ("And David reached in his bag and pulled out a stone and flung it and it struck the Philistine in the side of the head and he fell to the ground. Amen.....I love you guys.....TEAM!") and look what happened! All we need is Jimmy C. to make the big shot for us.
    [PAUL] 12/17/99 - To the Judge Family Women's Leadership Council - I can comprimise. Let's negotiate. I'll be flexible on the Soup if you will give in to simultaneous-gift-opening. The ball's in your court. Let's talk.
    [JOANNA] 12/17/99 - Paul, I have always been a staunch supporter of opening gifts at the same time, unfortunately, we have formidable opposition on this matter. I personally have reservations about tangling with the Judge Womens Coalition (AKA: the Sisters from Hell), however, if we persevere, maybe someday, we shall overcome. LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTION!!
    [KATY] 12/17/99 - to mike, paul, joanna, mean uncle dave, and other members of the revolution. i am throwing my support your way on the idea of opening present all at once. i have an idea that would bring the sisters from hell coalition down. we'll run the picket fence on them. paul, youre the swing man.
    [KATY] 12/17/99 - dan i have to ask, what in the hell is FBDO? did i miss a meeting or what?
    [A SISTER FROM HELL] 12/17/99 - DO NOT MESS WITH THE SISTERS!! Gifts shall be opened according to the sisters!! or all shall be "DO-DOed", (just ask Rich!!!)
    [BETTY] 12/17/99 - Excuse me Paul, did you say something? --Auntie -- --Betty,aka, the godfather.
    [GLORIA] 12/18/99 - To the Sisters From Hell.......Are you on drugs?????? or has Paul upset you that much?
    [GLORIA] 12/18/99 - What happened to "It's a wonderful life?" Get a hold of yourself, people.
    [JOANNA] 12/18/99 - So I got two Christmas cards yesterday! Turns out they were the exact same card, very pretty with a bunny rabbit on the front. Funny thing was, one was from "Pat and Al" and the other was from "Al and Pat". So I guess now I have to send them another card, and sign it "Maggie and Joanna". Sheesh!!
    [KAREN and SARAH] 12/18/99 - If we open all the presents at once, then everyone has to pay attention while each person shows what they got. It's fair and logical, and will stifle the resistance.
    [KAREN] 12/18/99 - Paul is no longer allowed to talk, see, write, or associate AT ALL with Uncle Dave K.
    [SARAH] 12/18/99 - Katie, You have jumped on the bandwagon. it's going to fail. and hey, BLONDIE it's Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I went into your room to learn how to spell it correctly. DUH!
    [PAUL] 12/18/99 - What I feared most has happened. I woke the sleeping giant - the Godmother! Betty: I think we need to meet. I know a nice little Italian place. They have the best veal in the city. Dave K. will arrange security. Please confirm.
    [AL and PAT...or is that PAT and AL] 12/18/99 - O.K. Joanna we are going to have to send everybody two cards.
    [PAT, aka Sister from Hell-Eastern] 12/18/99 - What is all of this present opening discussion....As a card carrying member of the S.F.H. I must say that this only open to discussion by the Council of S.F.H. Now there is a sub section the Cousins from Hell..Amy, Karen, Joanna, Sarah and Katie. Lauren is in training and will have full voting rights very soon. Joanna and Katie sound like they will need some attitude adjustment before any further meetings.
    [PAT] 12/18/99 - I have received packages from Gloria, Amy, Carol, and Kathy. I unpacked all of them together. Afterwards I found a card with my name on it and I do not know whose box it came from. Also should I open it now or wait?
    [BETTY] 12/19/99 - Well, the Pope has spoken, and even the godfather has to listen to the pope. Paul, I will meet you at your designated place, however, you had better watch out when I come out of the bathroom. My consiglieri will contact Luca to set it all up. Also, tell Karen she'd better sleep in the spare room for a few nights.
    [KAREN] 12/19/99 - i hear there is going to be FREE soup at christmas eve...oh wait, that's FRESH soup. To SFH: BYOD on Christmas Eve -- that's Bring Your Own Depends.
    [AMY] 12/19/99 - I cannot go against the family, I agree with opening presents one at a time...Katy and Joanna - you are no longer considered my sisters...why don't you go fishing in Lake Tahoe...As for me, as the eldest of the family-I am not going through any toll booths.
    [AMY] 12/19/99 - Patchouli smells like feet
    [AMY] 12/19/99 - To the AllAtOneTime contingent: don't get stuck watching the paint dry
    [GLORIA] 12/19/99 - I am a humble servant of the "pope". As a Sister-In-Law From Hell I will abide by the "pope's" decision on gift opening. And I surely don't want to offend the "godfather".....look what happened to Connie's husband.
    [PAUL] 12/20/99 - That's it. We're going to the mattresses.
    [DAN] 12/20/99 - Amy, if you start screwing up this website, I'll personally hide-strap your butt to a pine rail and send you up the Monnon line! Love, George.
