Dear Webby: Red X 

Good Morning,   !

One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with
potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other
virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful,
generous, or honest."
 Maya Angelou

Never exaggerate your faults. Your friends will attend to that.
--- Sir Francis Bacon


What's the Heirloom Christmas Book about?

It is a BIG e-book with all the stories that your great
grandmother recited or read to your grandmother, when she
was a kid. I want these stories preserved.

You will know what it is about, when somebody talks about
"bittersweet love like in 'The Gift Of The Magi',"
but with today's education, your kids or even their teachers,
probably don't know. So I collected these classics and put
them all together into one e-book.

Not all of the stories in the Heirloom Christmas Book are for
reading to all ages, but it is a cultural treasure that shold be
passed on to our descendants. Since it is in e-book format,
you can put it onto a CD for each kid, and fill the rest of the
CD with family pictures and other keepsakes.

I have produced a smaller version last year. This final
edition has more stories and illustrations, but I kept the
price down to the same $10.

The Heirloom Christmas Book also makes a nice
Christmas gift!

While driving along the back roads of a small town, two
truckers came to an overpass with a sign that read

They got out and measured their rig, which was 12'4."

"What do you think?" one asked the other.

The driver looked around carefully, then shifted into first.
"Not a cop in sight. Let's take a chance!"

=========================================== An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%. The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again." The gentleman replied, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!" ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Pat Davis, Seattle December 12, 2006 - Seattle, Washington - AP Christmas trees are going back up at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Pat Davis, president of the Port of Seattle commission, which directs airport operations, said late Monday that maintenance staff would restore the 14 plastic holiday trees, festooned with red ribbons and bows, that were removed over the weekend because of a rabbi's complaint that holiday decor did not include a menorah. Airport managers believed that if they allowed the addition of a 2.5-metre-tall menorah to the display, as Seattle Rabbi Elazar Bogomilsky had requested, they would also have to display symbols of other religions and cultures, which was not something airport workers had time for during the busiest travel season of the year, Airport Director Mark Reis said earlier Monday. Port officials received word Monday afternoon that Bogomilsky's organization would not file a lawsuit at this time over the placement of a menorah, Davis said in a statement. ===========================================

He explained to the doctor that things had gotten so bad that he couldn't even hear himself fart. The doctor examined Dave and then gave him some pills.

John was in the hospital and it was time for lunch. He looked at his lunch and said, "I don't like chicken soup, bring something else." The orderly said, "It's good for you, the doctor said you should have it." John refused to eat. That night, the John's roommate had bad stomach pain, so the nurses came in to give him an enema. By mistake, they gave the enema to John. The following week, when he was leaving the hospital, a new patient asked him how he liked the hospital. John told him, "Well, the hospital itself is pretty good, but they're very strict about their food. Here's a good tip: when they bring up chicken soup you better eat it, or else they'll come back in the middle of the night and give it to you the hard way, from the other end!" ======================================== To find a real bugler for military funerals, browse to Buglers Pervert Alerts are now at ======================================== The mother of a problem child was advised by a psychiatrist: "You are far too upset and worried about your son. I suggest you take tranquilizers regularly." On her next visit the psychiatrist asked, "Have the tranquilizers calmed you down?" "Probably" the mother answered. "And how is your son now?" he asked. "Who cares?" she replied.
