• From the same website, www.pagesintime.com/ri
, how the wieners got their nickname, "gaggas" or
"gaggers": "The first explanation is that the aroma will
make you gag (usually this happens to wiener virgins). The second
explanation is that they’re so addictive, you’ll want to eat them
until you’re well beyond full."

"What a delight
it was when I received this website from a fellow Rhode Islander!! It
brought back such wonderful memories of EP High School, I graduated in
'53 (where has the time gone?) I was a majorette in the EP High band,
and used to go to NY System to get the weiners to take to the football
games....I also used to work in the NY System between classes just to
get paid in weiners....I think I owe my longevity to all the weiners I
consumed there. Went on to be the first Miss East Providence, then in
1955 married my husband, Richard, at The Lady of Loretta Church in EP.
We just celebrated our 50th in Flagler Beach, Florida....Just had to let
you know what wonderful memories your website stirred up....Will send it
on to other Rhode Island transplants here in beautiful Florida....Thanks
for the memories........

Can you tell me how
I can subscribe to the newsletter? I moved away in '74 and come back a
couple of times a year (have not missed a summer in 30 yrs) to see
family and friends. The website is such a wonderful reminder of the
great state I grew up in and it has helped me to re-connect with a lot
of high school friends. And some things are laugh out loud funny!!! So I
would love to get the newsletter. Thanks for your help.
