A reporter was interviewing Jack Nicklaus. He said, "Jack, you are spectacular, your name is synonymous with the game of golf. You really know your way around the course. What is your secret?" To which Jack replied, "The holes are numbered!"
A truck driver was having lunch at a truck stop when 8 motorcyclists came in. They ate his crackers, drank his water, etc., and he made no move to object. After he left one of the group laughed and said, "He wasn't much of a man, was he?" The waitress behind the counter, looking out the window said, "He's not much of a truck driver, either. He just ran over 8 motorcycles!"

A group of young children were sitting in a circle with their teacher. She was going around in turn asking them all questions. First she asked, "Davy, what noise does a cow make?" He responded, "It goes moo." The she asked, "Alice, what noise does a cat make?" Alice replied, "It goes meow." Next she asked, "Jamie, what sound does a lamb make?" Her response was, "It goes baa." Finally she questioned one last child, "Jennifer, what sound does a mouse make?" She replied, "Er, it goes ... click!" Each evening bird lover Tom stood in his backyard, hooting like an owl - and one night, an owl finally called back to him. For a year, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. He even kept a log of the "conversation"... Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife had a chat with her next door neighbor. "My husband spends his nights ... calling out to owls," she said. "That's odd," the neighbor replied. "So does my husband!"

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Evi Re: Not getting subscription For some unknown reason I haven't received your most enjoyed news letter for several weeks, although your web page does show I am still subscribed to it. I admit I am NOT a computer expert but I can't find anything in my mail controls that indicates that any of my mail is being blocked, so am wondering what's going on that I'm not receiving a copy every day. Am hoping you can figure it out better than I've been able to! Evie Dear Evi That seems to be normal with ao'ell. You would be surprised to find out how many letters like yours I get every day. Apparentlty they got no sense of humor down there, and the sniveling ninnies like to steal subscriptions. Got to make room for spam, ya know. Have you tried putting into your white-list? Have FUN!

Deeli's Kudos August 10, 2007 - Trenton, New Jersey - AP Divorce lawyers say electronic toll collection systems are proving to be a valuable tool in exposing cheating spouses. An Associated Press survey found that highway agencies in seven states will release E-ZPass toll records in response to court orders in both criminal and civil cases, including divorces. New York divorce lawyer Jacalyn Barnet called E-ZPass "an easy way to show you took the off-ramp to adultery." She said she's used the records on a number of occasions. Another divorce lawyer, Lynne Gold-Bikin, said she was able to prove her client's husband went to New Jersey on a night he claimed to have been attending a business meeting in Pennsylvania.

Swampy Marsh, the young Australian father-to-be, is waiting anxiously outside the maternity ward where his wife is having their first baby. He is pacing the floor when the nurse comes out and says, "You have a little boy, Mr. Marsh, but you had better go out and have a cup of coffee, because there may be another one." Swampy turns a little pale and leaves. Some time later he phones the hospital and is told that he the father of twins, but the nurse cautions, "There is another on the way, so call back later." At that Swampy decides that coffee is not strong enough, so he goes to a bar and has some beer. When he phones the hospital again he is told that the third baby has arrived and a fourth is on the way. White-faced, he stumbles to the bar and orders a double scotch. Twenty minutes later, he tries to phone again, but he is so drunk that he dials the wrong number and gets the recorded cricket game score. When they pick him up off the floor the recording is still going strong: "The score is ninety-six all out," says the voice, "and the last one was a duck."
Stormy had to suddenly fly up North to Beaverlodge because of news that her father is dying. She will send in her columns again as soon as she finds a Cybercafe up there. Seems that she hasn't found one yet, so I'll throw in a dog story of my own. One time my summer neighbor, a chef from Switzerland, wanted to borrow one of my dogs to take along, because he heard that there were grizzlies near his favorite fishing spot. Adam was ideal for that. He was tall and had very visible reddish-brown and white markings. He was quite conscientious, but not as obnoxious about it as some of the other dogs. When Jacques brought Adam back, he was quite dissappointed. He said Adam took off as soon as he started fishing, and did not return until he packed up his stuff. I had to explain to him that for every grizzly HE sees, there are a hundred that see him. Adam was just busy spiralling out from his fishing spot ad slowly herding the bears away. They are basically peaceful and especially on hot summer days, rather saunter away than get into any strenuous fight. And since he had not seen a single grizzly all day, obviously Adam had been doing a good job, even though he was not underfoot waiting to be petted, like some of the dogs would have been. They became good friends that season and from that day on, Jaques always asked for Adam. Have FUN! DearWebby
