Thanks to Jai for this story: Chrisy and Barbie, two sisters, had promised their uncle, who had been a seafaring gentleman all his life, to bury him at sea when he died. Of course, in due time, he did pass away and the two kept their promise. They set off from Clearwater Beach with their uncle all stitched up in a burial bag and loaded onto their rowboat. After a while Chrisy says, 'Do you think we're out far enough, Barbie?' Barbie slipped over the side and finding the water only knee deep said, "nope, not yet Chrisy". So they row a little farther.... Again Chrisy asks Barbie, 'Do you think we're out far enough now? Once again Barbie slips over the side and almost immediately says, "No, this will never do, the water is only up to my chest." So on they row and row and row, and finally Barbie slips over the side and disappears. Quite a bit of time goes by and poor Chrisy is really getting worried when suddenly Barbie breaks the surface gasping for breath. 'Well is it deep enough yet, Sis?' "Yes, finally. Hand me the shovel."
Thanks to dad for this picture: Winter Hardy: These spent the winter outside, in ice and snow, with just a partial roof shielding them from some of the rain.

Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a 50-year-old man in Tampa, Florida Expensive cleaner Sent in by Ross May 28, 2008 - Tampa, Florida - AP A nude maid is accused of really cleaning up at a Florida man's home. The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said a 50-year-old man hired the maid from the Internet on Friday to clean his Tampa home. Authorities said the woman arrived at the home in a one-piece, light colored dress. She took off the dress and cleaned the house for $100-per-hour. Sheriff's office spokeswoman Debbie Carter said the man told deputies he left the maid alone in the bedroom to clean. When the man's wife came home from vacation, she discovered $40,000 in jewelry missing from their bedroom. Police are investigating.
Two women travelers, obviously nervous about their flight, bought some flight insurance at the terminal. They couldn't decide who to name as beneficiaries, however. They ended up each naming the other and happily boarded the same plane.

In front of a delicatessen, an art connoisseur noticed a mangy little kitten lapping up milk from a saucer. 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."

Deeli's Kudos May 28, 2008 - Wausau, Wisconsin - AP Her latest book won't end up on any best-seller lists, but this 95-year-old woman is proud just to say she's been published. Marion Jacobson is a former teacher and guidance counselor in the Wausau School District, and her love of reaching out to kids has never waned. That's part of the reason she wrote, ''Paddy, the Lonesome Turtle,'' a 23-page story about a turtle with no friends. ''He asks people along the road to be his friend, but they all have an excuse why they can't,'' Jacobson said. ''Paddy keeps trying and finally finds a whole family of friends. It's a cute story for kids.'' The story, recently published by Vantage Press in New York, is her second book. Last year she wrote, ''Why the Giraffe Has a Long Neck,'' Jacobson doesn't have any kids, but she plans to share her new book with her many nieces and grandnieces. ''This story brings out the fact that we're all different,'' Jacobson said, After writing two books in her mid-90s, is a third one in the works? ''At my age?'' Jacobson said, with a look of shock and a giggle. ''I think I've done well enough.'' ... n-book.htm

A man was bragging about his sister who disguised herself, as a man and joined the army. "But, wait a minute," said the listener, "She'll have to dress with the boys and shower with them too. Won't she?" "Sure," replied the man. "Well, won't they find out?" "And who's gonna tell?"

Psychiatrist: I see you're over a month late for your appointment. Don't you know that nervous disorders require prompt and regular attention? What's your excuse? Patient: I was just following your orders, Doc. Psychiatrist: Following my orders? What are you talking about? I gave you no such order. Patient: You told me to avoid people who irritate me.
