short end of the ham story - by request.
There was/is this fella by the name of Dave King [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] who after years of haviing his wife have him cut the bone end off of the ham before she put it in the cooker for cooking, finally had to ask, "Why am I doing this?"
Wife's response was bacause my mother always did.
He then asked wife's mother, who gave the same response, "because my mother did."
Luckly, great grandmother was still available so Dave in his dedicated way asked her.
Her response, "so it would fit in the pan!" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
