    Default Anyone Else Know This?

    I remember this from my school days, and the opportunity to use it came up in a conversation. No one had heard of it before, so I expanded the circle and asked a few customers. They, too, had not heard of it. I can't be the only one.

    The picture is only there to give reference. It's how to put 5 ands in a row that still makes sense that's the point.

    On a side note. Rosella's like to pick bits off trees and bushes and purposely throw them on the floor. They're faster than a speeding bullet as well.

    I know a longer one using 'had' - you can stretch it to eleven in a row, but I saw it in the readers digest decades ago and it had only nine which was probably better grammar; it's all in the punctuation folks

    Well... my question is, "Was the sign changed, purely to start up a conversation?"
