Thanks too SSS for this confession: First I had to work late. Then I discovered that I'd locked my keys in the car. But the last straw was learning that roadside service couldn't get a locksmith to me for at least two hours. Finally the guy showed, looking exhausted. As he struggled with my door, I joked, "Do those Slim Jim tools come in purse-size?" "Yeah," he muttered. "They're called keys."
Thanks to Sue for this picture: When on a trail ride today on the prairies, I came across this well camouflaged Night Hawk sitting tight on her eggs, which are laid directly on the ground. Sue

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ricardo Gonzalez, 35, of Midlothian, Illinois Sent in by Sandie Caged kids Fri Jul 4, 1:47 AM ET A suburban Chicago man locked his two young daughters in a wire cage hidden in the backseat of his pickup truck because he didn't have a baby sitter, officials said Thursday. Ricardo Gonzalez, 35, of Midlothian, was arrested Monday after a woman at a gas station in Posen heard a crying child and spotted him pushing small hands back into a cage, police said. He had a wire cage behind the front seats of his truck, police said. Black-tinted windows and a large plywood board in the back window concealed it. Gonzalez told police he used the cage because he didn't have a baby sitter. He also said he wanted to control the girls, ages 2 and 5, so they wouldn't wander away. Police said the girls did not live in the cage. Gonzalez will appear in court July 31 on charges of misdemeanor child endangerment. Cook County prosecutors were exploring Thursday whether the charge could be upgraded to a felony. The children were turned over to the state child welfare agency and placed in foster care Monday. Agency spokesman Kendall Marlowe said the department was investigating abuse allegations against the father. It had previously found the mother neglectful and provided unspecified "supportive services" to the family. ----------------------- It seems ironic that Gonzalez probably meant well, but just didn't have a clue about how to deal with the kids. A cargo net to keep the little escape artists from unbuckling and wandering around the gas station is one thing, but a cage is getting a bit carried away.
Joe's wife likes to sing so she decided to join the church choir. From time to time she would practice while she was in the kitchen preparing dinner. Whenever she would start in on a song, Joe would head outside to the porch. His wife, with hurt feelings, said, "What's the matter, Joe? Don't you like my singing?" Joe replied, "Honey, I love your singing, but I just want to make sure the neighbors know I'm not beating you."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ann Re:Lost Favorites Dear Webby: I have a big problem this time...somehow my "My Favorites" has disappeared...I have run "search" and it didn't find it. I did run Regcure the other day but didn't need "MF" until today.... could that have wiped it out? Is there someway this can be retrieved. Any help will be gratefully received. Ann Dear Ann Are you beginning to see why I don't recommend regcure and similar stuff? I don't know of any way to retrieve lost IE favorites, that is why I frequently recommend saving them to a file. Just remember: ALT FINE If you do that once a week, you bookmarks are never too far out of date and can be IMPORTED into the Favorites again.. Just in case you DID at one time do that when I mentioned it in the Humor Letter, do a search for "bookmark". If you find a bookmark.html or bookmark.txt, you can import them into your Favorites. Have FUN! Dear Webby

Daily tip from Save Excess Water Under Sink Keep an empty gallon jug near the kitchen sink, and pour any leftover water from cooking or drinking into it. Once the jug is full, use the water on plants in the garden or home. House plants should be watered in the evening to reduce loss to evaporation.

The kindergarten teacher was aghast at the words one of her charges was using. Taking him aside, she tried to exercise care and good judgment, but was intent on nipping this kind of language in the bud. "Where in the world did you ever hear anybody talking like that, anyway?" she asked. "In our car this morning," he answered cheerfully. "When Daddy was trying to hurry and drive me to school." "Well," she said. "I'm sure you don't know what it means, dear, but you must never use that language again." "But I do know what it means," he said. "It means the car won't start."
