Thanks to Sandie for this story: A bricklayer at my husband's construction job routinely complained about the contents of his lunch box. "I'm sick and tired of getting the same old thing!" he shouted one day. "Tonight, I'll set my wife straight." The next day, the men could hardly wait until lunchtime to hear what happened. "You bet I told her off," the bricklayer boasted. "I said, 'No more of the same old stuff. Be creative!' We had one heck of a fight, but I got my point across." He had indeed. In front of an admiring audience, he opened his lunch box to find that his wife had packed a coconut and a hammer. He is now dating the sandwich girl from the Deli.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Candy Klein, 37, of Rapid City, South Dakota Drunk driver asked deputy for help STURGIS, S.D. (UPI) -- An alleged drunken driver near Sturgis, S.D., stopped for directions at a residence that turned out to be the home of a sheriff's deputy, authorities said. Meade County Sheriff Ron Merwin said Candy Klein, 37, became lost while allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and stopped for directions at a home of a female sheriff's deputy, the Rapid City Journal reported. Merwin said the deputy, whose name was not released, suspected Klein was intoxicated and refused to allow her to drive. He said the suspect then became enraged and attacked the deputy. The sheriff said Klein was arrested and charged with felony driving under the influence and simple assault of a law enforcement officer. Suspect allegedly stole clothes to hide.

My sister had been ill, so I called to see how she was doing. My ten-year-old niece answered the phone 'Hello,' she whispered. 'Hi, honey. How's your mother?' I asked. 'She's sleeping,' she answered, again in a whisper. 'Did she go to the doctor?' I asked. 'Yes. She got some medicine,' my niece said softly. 'Well, don't wake her up. Just tell her I called. What are you doing, by the way?' Again in a soft whisper, she answered, 'Practicing my trumpet.'
Thanks to Cookie for this story: On the way back from a Cub Scout meeting, my grandson asked my son the question. 'Dad, I know that babies come from mommies' tummies, but how do they get there in the first place?' he asked innocently. After my son hemmed and hawed awhile, my grandson finally spoke up in disgust. 'You don't have to make something up, Dad. It's OK if you don't know the answer.'
Still available! Step By Step PC Tune-Up From the Tech Support Pits: From: Roland Re: Running programs on a removable drive Dear Webby, I have given up on CD's, as you say you can only rewrite a few times, found that a Attaché USB 2.0 Drive is just what I need. Another question on this, could one down load QUICKEN on this and keep it off the main drive? Roland Dear Roland Yes, sure. Just select the E: drive as the drive to install it to. When it is plugged in, it acts just like any other hard drive. You can run any program, even the Operating System, on any drive. Because most viruses and trojans look for the Windows registry on the C: drive, I frequently partition the primary hard drive into C: and E:, and put XP onto the E: drive. Some programs need access to the Windows Registry to hide their serial number and pass codes, but the bulk of the program, and especially the data produced by it, can be on any drive. Have FUN!

Thanks to Cookie for tis story: My wife left the car unattended for only a minute, but it was long enough for our two-year-old to climb in, throw the car into reverse and crash into a lamppost. He was fine, but the car wasn't, and I had a hard time explaining who was behind the wheel to the insurance company. After a pause, the adjuster asked, 'Do you let him drive often?'

A lunatic is sitting in his cell playing solitaire. Another patient, who has been watching, suddenly cries, "Wait a minute! I just caught you cheating yourself." The first man puts his finger to his lips. "Shhh," he whispers. "Don't tell anybody, but I've been cheating myself at solitaire for years." "You don't say," says his surprised pal. "Don't you ever catch yourself cheating?" The first man shakes his head. "Naw," he says proudly. "I'm much too clever."
