Tomorrow is Friday! When I hear somebody sigh that Life is hard, I am always tempted to ask, "Compared to what?" --- Sydney J. Harris
Thanks to Sandie for this story: Arriving home from work at my usual hour of 5 p.m., I discovered that it had not been one of my wife's better days. Nothing I said or did seemed to be right. By 7 p.m., things had not changed, so I suggested I go outside, pretend I had just gotten home and start all over again. My wife agreed. I went outside, came back in and with a big smile, announced, "Honey, I'm home!" "And just where have you been?" she replied sharply. "It's after seven o'clock!"

"Purpose of visit?" asked the customs agent as we approached a checkpoint at the U.S.-Canadian border. "We're going to a wedding," my wife said. "Are you carrying any weapons -- knives, guns?" he asked. "No," she said. "It's not that kind of wedding."

After a lady's car had leaked motor oil on her cement driveway, she bought a large sack of cat litter to soak it up. It worked so well, that she went back to the convenience store to get another bag to finish the job. The clerk remembered her. Looking thoughtfully at her purchase, he said, "Lady, if that were my cat, I'd put him outside!" Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to John Hayes of Marietta, Georgia Who is more crooked? December 21, 2007 Marietta, Georgia - UPI A Georgia middle-school coach has been charged with leading some players on a Christmas vandalism spree that included putting reindeer into sexual positions. John Hayes is charged with trespassing, contributing to the delinquency of minors and reckless conduct. Hayes allegedly drove members of the junior varsity football team around Marietta in a pickup truck to vandalize Christmas decorations. Police described Hayes as uncooperative because he has refused to give them information on the juveniles who accompanied him. I bet the kids would have had just as much, or more, fun if they had toured the town doing something good and productive.

My dentist shared a good one with me on Thursday. He recounts how he was sharing this story with an elderly lady, just as he was putting on his rubber gloves. "Do you know how they make these rubber gloves?" She said, "No?" "Well", he spoofed, "down in Puerto Rico they have this big building set up with a large tank of latex, and the natives walk up to the tank, and dip their hands in - and then walk around for a bit while the latex sets up - then they peel off the gloves and throw them into the big 'Finished Goods Crate' and go around again." And she didn't laugh a bit!!! Five minutes later, during the procedure, he had to stop cleaning her teeth because she burst out laughing. She explained, "I just suddenly thought about how they must be making condoms...!"

Deeli's Kudos December 26, 2007 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - AP Transit officer Steven Rocher got up before dawn on Christmas to deliver a few more presents to his mother's house. He ended up delivering a very special gift indeed. Rocher, 51, a police sergeant with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, was driving through North Philadelphia on Tuesday when he heard a woman scream. The woman was lying on the sidewalk near a bus stop, about to give birth, and he saw a man tugging at her clothes. ''As I got closer, he says to me, 'Help me, please!''' Rocher said. Rocher, a transit officer for two decades, said employees get annual CPR training ''but nothing about delivering babies.'' Still, he managed to figure it out. ''When I heard the baby crying, I felt a sense of comfort because I knew the baby was OK,'' he said. ... s-baby.htm

An old British lord is meandering through Hyde Park one windy day when he notices that the skirt of a pretty young woman is uplifted by the wind high above her head. "Humph!" said the not-so-noble noticer. "It's a bit airy, isn't it?" Pulling her frock down in a fury, the woman said "Well, love, what the 'ell d'you expect? Feathers?!"
