New! Improved! Now with Listeriosis!

Amusing, subby? Listeriosis kills one in five infected, though it is usually infants, the elderly and immuno-suppressed people who are infected.

I will not buy this salad; it is tossed.

I suppose one would be cumming if their salad were tossed.

These little Patch™ websites are popping up like a fungal growth. Seems like all the little towns get one now. Oddly the one here in Gulfport (Florida) is pretty much doing the whole "local reporting" job better than any other news source.

It's a chill gig for a retiree or homemaker with some tech sense and basic writing skills I guess.

Good riddance. Infants, the elderly, and immuno-suppressed people are really farking annoying and the world is a better place without them.

I can point out to you that---when you enter the county line--there is a HUGE WHITE sperm shaped water tower that has Seamans written on the side of it..and we also have a Cumming Fairgrounds.. The hilarity is always around us.

Oh and the receipt at Wendy's says "Wendy's Cumming" have I driven it into the ground yet? These are all things that are actually here in our fabulous town of Cumming. What else.. The Cumming Eye Clinic. Which is just weird. Most people use the _________ of Cumming. Which takes the fun out of it. OH OH I almost forgot BJ's (the wholesale place like Costco) BJ's CUMMING.. Yes, there is a Cumming police department. Let's see am I missing anything here?

I am living here because houses are cheap.. And if you don't know Cumming is actually the place to live now. I don't know how long ago you lived here but we have everything--except a Trader Joes. I like living here except for the LAKE PEOPLE. Which I can totally do without. But they bring money 2 exits up and pretend they are in the country which is amusing.. Because it's like "you live in Alpharetta" that's like 10 miles away get over yourself.

After picking up a out of town friend from the airport recently, I had to explain the "Buckhead Cumming" sign at the bottom of 400. A great way to start off a tour of my fair city.

TheDumbBlonde: My family has been in Forsythe since forever. I can top any of your jokes.


My fave is

Did you know they are going to rename Alpharetta to Throbbin?
Why?
'Cause anything that close to Cumming has got to be Throbbin'.

A good friend of mine likes to tell people he lives in Midway just to confuse them more. Even with a Cumming address, his neighbors insist they live in Alpharetta.

One thing about "Midway" That eatery in the old house. Cooked from scratch. Is freaking AWESOME. Plus there is Bead Bayou a great little bead store.
It just boggles my mind on holiday weekends when the Alpharetta people come up and act like no one is out here but a bunch of hicks..So they act all tacky. 10 miles away from their real house. I have actually heard them fighting in Target about leaving the shampoo at home..and arguing about going home to get it.."But if we drive 2 exits back it's like we are not on vacation anymore"
My house in Alpharetta would have cost 80K more. LOL..10 miles away.

Ok so you have never lived here..But your family had land here when they were stealing it from the Indians. And you have more jokes than I do--who lives here now--and mind you--you have not made one that beats all of them-like you originally claimed-just sayin

No reason to get all worked up, Girl. I was mere saying that's sort of home. My grandmother had outrageous turn of the century stories. My cousins' homes I visited as a child are now sub-divisions, and my first cousins still have places on the lake. I found your take amusing. Hailing from Forsyth was something to apologize for in the 60s., so you the looking down your nose" at the yuppies from Alpharetta is funny, since all of y'all are carpetbaggers any way.

Do any of them involve Cherokee from Oklahoma coming back to dig up gold their ancestors buried before being sent west? Because that fascinates me.

CSB time. Phone call I just had with my father.

ME: This is very important. I need you to go in the trash and find the bag from the salad we just had on Saturday and tell me the Best By date.
Dad: OK
2 mins of silence then phone hangs up.
Wait 5 mins for him to call back.
Call him back.
Me. Did you check?
Dad: No. My feet hurt. Why?
Me: Because there might be Listeria in it.
Dad. Oh.
Silence
Me: Never mind I'll check myself later.

Like mentioned before Cumming, Ga had white signs for the city's singles site that simply read in black, "Cumming Singles - Cummingsingles.com" A lot of people would steal them because it was funny to have in a college apartment, I would know because I have a friend that lives nearby and would steal them all the time.

Now, they've changed the signs to black with silver lettering simply saying, "Singles Cumming - Singlescumming.com". AS IF THAT IS ANY BETTER.

Much as I can tell, that's plenty of tall tales. Forsyth Co has been poor for generations. Gold? I don't think so. My family were merely farmers from Virginia who took advantage of land after the Revolution.

Sorry, more to your point, My grandmother was born in 1901. So her stories were about wagons to "town"? Stalks of bananas? Her grandfather who lost an eye at the Battle of Vicksburg. Black ladies who had been slaves who taught her to cook. Coca-cola and it's medicinal qualities. Her model A Ford, and marrying a Ga Tech grad. That sort of thing.

The stories I read happened as late as 1915 or so. And it's not like anyone would want to broadcast what they were doing. There are still trees with markings on them you can find though.

Anyway, glad you grandma married a Tech man.
