Well, here's what we've come up with today. Please take a look and let me know of anything(s) that need to be updated. I've got a couple ? I need some help with so chime in.

 

Boy do we have a ton of words and phrases we toss around. I for one can say I learned a few things tonight. Thanks for weighing in.

 

A big thanks to JRJ for compiling a list of terms we had going half way through the day.

Oh, this will be fun.
Keep it clean :D

LT=Lawn Tractor

Some of the ones that used to get me are standard text abbreviations, but I think he means hobby related abbreviations we all have started using.

 

Let me know if I need to make it even more cryptic than it already is for a few of our favorite sayings. I know we're trying to "keep it clean" but also real. :thumbs:
