Thanks to Roland for this one:
An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face
was sprinkled with bright freckles, spent the day at the
zoo. Lots of children were waiting in line to get their
cheeks painted by a local artist who was decorating
them with tiger paws.
"You've got so many freckles, there's no place to
paint!" a girl in the line said to the little fella.
Embarrassed, the little boy dropped his head.
His grandmother knelt down next to him. "I love your
freckles. When I was a little girl I always wanted
freckles, she said, while tracing her finger across the
child'scheek. "Freckles are beautiful!"
The boy looked up, "Really?"
"Of course," said the grandmother. "Why, just name
me one thing that's prettier than freckles."
The little boy thought for a moment, peered intensely
into his grandma's face, and softly whispered,

Man dead, woman critically injured
in Phoenix shooting


A young woman decided to redecorate her bedroom. She wasn't
sure how many rolls of wallpaper she would need, but she
knew that her friend next door had recently done the same
job and the two rooms were identical in size.

"Buffy," she said, "how many rolls of wallpaper did you buy
for your bedroom?"

"Twenty," said Buffy.

So the girl bought the twenty rolls of paper and did the
job, but she had 12 rolls left over.

"Buffy," she said. "I bought twenty rolls of wallpaper for
the bedroom, but I've got 12 left over!"

"Amazing!" said Buffy. "So did I."

Man dead, woman critically injured
in Phoenix shooting

A man has been accused of killing his father and critically
injuring a woman in a shooting near 35th Avenue and Thomas
Road back in December.

According to Phoenix Police, the shooting happened at about
10:20 p.m. on Dec. 28. Officers arrived to an apartment
complex and found a woman outside who had been "shot
multiple times on her lower extremities."

Inside a nearby apartment unit was Leandro Gonzales, who had
also been shot multiple times. He died at the scene.

The woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition,
but survived. She claimed they were shot by Leandro's son,
who she knew as Gordo.

She told investigators that she had Gordo's cell phone
number in her phone under the contact name Manuel. A
subsequent database search from police revealed his identity
as Manuel Angel Ybarra.

The woman identified Ybarra as the man who shot her and

Through an anonymous tip, police took Ybarra into custody at
an apartment near 43rd Avenue and Glendale.

"[Ybarra] maintained that he was not there and didn't shoot
anyone," court documents said. "Manuel only said that he was
sad for his dad and that he didn't do it."

Ybarra was booked into jail and faces multiple charges
including first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder
and discharging a firearm within city limits.

A woman goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is published. The obit editor informs her that there is a charge of 50 cents per word. She pauses, reflects, and then says well, then, let it read "Fred Brown died." Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor tells her that there is a seven word minimum for all obituaries. She thinks it over and in a few seconds says, "In that case, let it read: 'Fred Brown died: golf clubs for sale.'"

_____________________________________________ Steve wasn't feeling well and so he went to the doctor to get himself checked. After a thorough examination, the doctor said, "Well, Steve, based on my examination, the best thing for you is to cut out all sweets and fatty foods, give up alcohol, and stop smoking." "To be honest with you, Doc," said Steve, "I don't deserve the best. What's the SECOND best?" ______________________________________________ An Irishman walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three pints of Guinness and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender asks him, "You know, a pint goes flat after I draw it; it would taste better if you bought one at a time." The Irishman replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in America, the other in Australia, and I'm here in Dublin. When we all left home, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the day when we drank together." The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The Irishman becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way: He orders three pints and drinks them in turn. One day, he comes in and orders two pints. All the other regulars notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your great loss." The Irishman looks confused for a moment, then a light dawns in his eye and he laughs. "Oh, no," he says, "everyone's fine. It's me. My wife told me to quit drinking." ______________________________________________

After the man received the full treatment - shave, shampoo, manicure, haircut, etc. - he placed Little Johnny in the chair. "I'm going to buy a green tie to wear for the parade," he said. "I'll be back in a few minutes." When Little Johnny's haircut was completed and the man still hadn't returned, the barber said, "Looks like your daddy's forgotten all about you." "That wasn't my daddy," said Little Johnny. "He just walked up, took me by the hand and said, 'Come on, kid, we're gonna get a free haircut!'" ___________________________________________________
