______________________________________________________ A marriage is always made up of two people who are prepared to swear that only the other one snores. --- Terry Pratchett, Nature abhors a vacuum, but not as much as cats do. --- Lee Entrekin "I was married for a short time.

The saucer, he realized with a start, was a rare and precious piece of pottery. He strolled into the store and offered two dollars for the cat. "It's not for sale," said the proprietor. "Look," said the collector, "that cat is dirty and undesirable, but I'm eccentric. I like cats that way. I'll raise my offer to ten dollars." "It's a deal," said the proprietor, and pocketed the ten on the spot. "For that sum I'm sure you won't mind throwing in the saucer," said the connoisseur. "The kitten seems so happy drinking from it." "Nothing doing," said the proprietor firmly. "That's my lucky saucer. From that saucer, so far this week I've sold 34 stray cats, some of them more than once." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ I have run this Oldie-Goldie almost every year. It keeps coming back, so it must be good. Thanks to the folks from Erie for sending it back to me this time: A lady picked up several items at a discount store. When she finally got up to the check-out, she learned that one of her items had no price tag. Imagine her embarrassment when the checker got on the intercom and boomed out for all the store to hear,"PRICE CHECK ON LANE THIRTEEN, TAMPAX, SUPER SIZE." That was bad enough, but somebody at the rear of the store apparently misunderstood the word "Tampax" for "THUMBTACKS." In a business-like tone, a voice boomed back over the intercom. "DO YOU WANT THE KIND YOU PUSH IN WITH YOUR THUMB OR THE KIND YOU POUND IN WITH A HAMMER?" _____________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying "Free to good home, You want it you take it." For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal, looks to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read "Fridge for sale $5o". That night someone stole it. _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Anthony Kimmons, 19, Kenosha, Wisconsin Elderly man tied up and robbed twice by 19-year-old neighbor. Robber in jail now. Months after a 78-year-old man was tied up and robbed in his home not once, but twice, prosecutors have announced charges. A 19-year-old man is now behind bars. Neighbors are shocked to learn the man police were looking for lived just a stone's throw away from his victim. Anthony Kimmons is now facing eight felony charges, from armed robbery to kidnapping. Police say he told them he robbed the man because it "made him feel better." The elderly man's house now sits empty on 12th Avenue in Kenosha. "He said his goodbyes to everyone, everyone was real shaken up by it," said Benjamine Roman, neighbor. According to police, in July, the 78-year-old man was inside his home when an intruder came inside. Holding what appeared to be a gun, prosecutors say the suspect ordered the man to a chair. The suspect bound the victim's hands together with a gray electrical cord. His feet were tied with wrapping paper and black electrical tape. Eventually, the suspect made off with hundreds of dollars. It was a terrifying ordeal- if it had only happened once. "Then I heard it happened a second time," said Roman. "It's real sad." Investigators say less than a week later, the robber was back again. The victim once again was tied up, this time in his basement. For months, neighbors have been terrified. "What if that happened to us? We don't know what to do," said Jacola Hill, neighbor. This week, charges were filed. Prosecutors say DNA evidence has linked 19-year-old Kimmons to the crimes. Police say he admitted to the crimes, saying after the first robbery he "felt exhilarated" so he decided to go back again. The big surprise: the suspect and victim were also neighbors. Their homes are separated by an alley. "That's sad," said Hill. "That is really, really, really sad." Neighbors say they are thrilled to hear of an arrest, and are hoping their old neighbor can feel safe again. "It's so shocking. You never think something that dangerous could happen and then it does," said Roman. Police didn't have to go far to find Kimmons, because he was already in jail on a separate theft charge. Neighbors who have not seen the victim since he moved hope he can find closure with these charges. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Louise Re: HP driver Dear Webby, I have a HP Photo Smart 3200 all in one printer. For some reason I can't understand my husband uninstalled the printer.

A dinner speaker was in such a hurry to get to his engagement that when he arrived and sat down at the head table, he suddenly realized that he had forgotten his false teeth. Turning to the man next to him he said, "I forgot my teef!" The man said, "No problem." With that he reached into his pocket and pulled out a pair of false teeth. "Try these," he said. The speaker tried them. "Thanks, but they're too loose," he said. The man then said, "I have another pair...try these." The speaker tried them and responded, "Too tight." The man was not taken back at all. He then said, "I have one more pair... try them." The speaker said, "They fit perfectly!" With that he ate his meal and gave his address. After the dinner meeting was over, the speaker went over to thank the man who had helped him. "I want to thank you for coming to my aid. Where is your office? I've been looking for a good dentist." The man replied, "Oh I'm not a dentist. I work at the morgue."

An employee for USAir, who happened to have the last name of GAY, got on a plane recently using one of his company's "Free Flight" programs. However, when Mr. Gay tried to take his seat, he found it being occupied by a paying passenger. So, not to make a fuss, he simply chose another seat. Unknown to Mr. Gay, another USAir flight at the airport experienced mechanical problems. The passengers of this other flight were being rerouted to various airplanes. A few were put on Mr. Gay's flight and anyone who was holding a "free" ticket was being "bumped". Airline officials, armed with a list of these "freebee" ticket holders boarded the plane to remove the free ticket holders. Of course, our Mr. Gay was not sitting in his assigned seat as you may remember. So when the Ticket Agent approached the seat where Mr. Gay was supposed to be sitting, she asked a startled customer "Are you Gay?". The man, shyly nodded that he was, at which point she demanded: "Then you have to get off the plane". Our Mr. Gay, overhearing what the Ticket Agent had said, tried to clear up the situation: "You've got the wrong man. I'm Gay!". This caused an angry third passenger to yell "Hell, I'm gay too! They can't kick us all off!" Confusion reined as more an more passengers began yelling that USAir had no right to remove gays from their flights. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Memory Aid: Use Small Sized Post-Its Small post-a-notes (1.5 x 2") are much more practical and economical than the larger sizes. I bought 2 packs for $1 (of 50 sheets per pad, 4 pads to the pack) at a dollar store. I now have 400 small post-its. This size is perfect for small reminders to myself and I am not wasting the larger ones or worse yet, having to cut them into strips because I don't want to waste them.

One day he thought he recognized a woman as a co-worker at the VA hospital where he had trained. When the patient confirmed that his hunch was correct, he said, "So, tell me, is the food still as bad there as it used to be?" "Well," she replied, "I'm still cooking it." __________________________________________________

"Congratulations my boy!" said the groom's uncle. "I'm sure you'll look back and remember today as the happiest day of your life." "But I'm not getting married until tomorrow." Protested his nephew. "I know," replied the uncle. "That's exactly what I mean." ___________________________________________________
