    ...I saw some really nice lunch packages at the assemblies: hot dogs, weiners, celery sticks, taquitos dripping with hot sauce, fried zuchini, meatballs, ...and enough mexican churros to shake a stick at...

    Ha! I dont know much about the melons at Twickenham, but that damn golden cow always made me think of the picture in the Bible Story book when the Isrealites were standing around it waiting for Moses to come back down the mountain.


    It was those melons that always caused me to bring the binoculars to the assemblies. Whew!

    as a homosexual, im not really relating to the whole "melon" innuendo. but when i was younger, at our circuit assembly we had ice cream. u could put hot fudge, hot caramel, or strawberries on it. and it was cheaaaap man. we used to get like 2 or three per day. and for a long time we had hot food too... nutritious and delicious!


    PS im not really gay... i just like small boobs!!! hehehehe

    Was there when we tore down the machine, and took home some of the jars!

    Preston, I think you and I were at the same assembly. 5 minutes into the first talk, I generally just settled in to check out all the young honeys they had working as ushers, all the while trying to keep a pious look on my face. I know now that Satan sent all the hottest brothas to my assembly, in order to distract me from spiritual matters.

    Ok this is really going to date me, but when I was a kid there were cafeterias at all the assemblies. We stood in long lines, paid in cash, and then ate off those big metal trays like they put food on in M*A*S*H. The food was pretty good, too. The concession stands up here in the northwest always had canteloupe with vanilla ice cream in it, and we always had strawberry short cake with ice cream too. Late in my teenage years I left. When I came back in my early 20s the hot food was gone and all there was to eat was carbs. I always hated assembly food after that. The only good thing about that era was the frozen orange juice.

    Seems they got stingier and stingier with what they fed their sheep right down to nothing at all. But you can bet someone is keeping all that money!

    Gretchen, you guys got ice cream? And strawberry shortcake?? We didn't get anything good like that! I always had problems at the assemblies because there were no provisions for vegetarians or vegans, nor were we "allowed" to get something off-site. So, sitting there all day with my tummy grumbling, it's no wonder I got distracted by the scenery, I guess.
