Au contraire mon frère. I only have two of the first gen's. Greg has all of the rest. He's a genuine, dyed in the wool, hoarder.

Shame on you Jerry...... speaking in foreign tongues so I won't understand you....LOL.

OK, so NOW I see.....
Greg is the one who has the bulk of MY share....

But aren't you going to 'fess up to at least having at least some of MY share?

LOL....
pullin' on y'all's legs...

Here is my experience with "I need my share"...
I hunt arrowheads.... I have a couple of guys that hunt with me. We USED to have a "friend" that hunted with us too. Finding arrowheads around here is a competition to say the least. WELL.... Me and 2 of my huntin' pards found a spot that had several in it. We told the other fellow we found a spot and we want to go back next weekend when he can go.
HE PITCHED A FIT!! He wanted to go get "HIS SHARE" right now!! (He is retired so he can go anytime.)..... thus he could go 6 days in a row before we could go back TOGETHER!!
There was a meeting called.... everyone but the newspaper was called in to hear about the terrible injustice that had been done to deprive him of getting..."HIS SHARE"....
So... after that... my buds and I use the phrase, "our share" as a "fond" reminder of that incident.
