Good Morning, !
Today is Wednesday, May 22

OK, so now I am officially an ornery old goat.
I got about 300 birthday wishes by email and FB messages,
and even got some pictures of cupcakes. 
Not a penny from PayPal. 
Rather dismal 70th birthday. 
Is that a hint that maybe it is time to retire?

"I was just stupid," I teased. When he said he was happy to hear that, I requested an explanation. "People get divorced all the time because they fall out of love," he said. "But I've never heard of anybody falling out of stupid." ______________________________________________________` _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Gary Wayne Anderson, 68, Haines City, Floriduh Drunk Man Rode A Lawn Mower Into Cop Car
Police arrested Gary Wayne Anderson, 68, for a DUI charge after he crashed his lawn mower into a Haines City police vehicle. Anderson's driver's license has been suspended since 1978. He has two prior DUI convictions. Anderson failed the field sobriety test and was taken to the Haines City Police Department. At the department, Anderson told officers he had been poisoned by police and demanded to be taken to a hospital, the HCPD said. At Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center, his blood-alcohol level was .241 more than three times the legal limit of 0.08%, according to Mike Ferguson, a spokesman for the HCPD. Cocaine was also found in Anderson's system, police reported. The crash caused minor damage to the rear bumper of the police car. According to Chief Elensky of the Haines City, Police Department, It's never a good idea to get behind the wheel drunk, even if that wheel is to a Craftsman, Massey Ferguson or John Deere.
From: Jim Re: myMemorizer Dear Webby I enjoy starting every day with your email and thank Martin (RIP) for recommending it. Check out and consider recommending it. Like so many people, I was forgetting appointments etc and putting them on the computer didn't help as I'd forget to look daily. Jim Dear Jim I have recommended myMemorizer a few times. MyMemorizer is like gmail - server based, and it's neatest feature is that it will send you up to 4 emails reminding you of appointments, birthdays, anniversaries etc. The emails can be sent on the day of the event, one day before, two days before, one week before or whatever you select AND, the event can repeat annually so you can put in birthdays and anniversaries once and forget them. It will remember them for you. You can even get it to send reminders via SMS text, at times you specify, like the emails. Since it is server based, you also can access it from any computer with internet access using your id and pw. It is free at Have FUN! DearWebby

A group of Montana high schooler students played a prank: they let three goats loose in the school building. But before they let them go, they painted numbers on the sides of the goats: 1, 2 and 4. The best part of the prank was when, after they had rounded up the three goats, the school administrators spent the rest of the day looking for goat #3. ------------------- We did that with 3 cows in the 60s after we had learned that cows can walk UP stairs, but not down. They had to be carried down.

After the birth of their child, an Episcopal priest, wearing his clerical collar, visited his wife in the hospital. He greeted her with a hug and a kiss, and gave her another hug and kiss when he left. Later, the wife's roommate commented: "Your pastor is sure friendlier than mine." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Back To School Routine Start getting your back to school routine started. Have your kids wake up and go sleep at the same time they will the week before school starts. Also serve dinner at the same time you will when school starts. It will make the transition much easier for them and for you. thriftyfun.Com ____________________________________________________
I've never had "scuppernong wine" but I've had lots of wild muscadine jelly.
___________________________________________________ Three preachers sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby. One preacher claimed, "Kneeling is definitely best." "No," another contended. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven." "You're both wrong," the third insisted. "The most effective prayer position is lying prostrate, face down on the floor." The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey, fellas," he interrupted, "the best prayin' I ever did was hangin' upside down from a telephone pole in a thunderstorm." ___________________________________________________ The man passed out in a dead faint as he came out of his front door onto the porch. Someone called 911. When the paramedics arrived, they helped him regain consciousness and asked if he knew what caused him to faint. "It was enough to make anybody faint," he said. "My son asked me for the keys to the garage, and instead of driving the car out, he came out with the lawn mower." ___________________________________________________
