Thanks to Sandie for this story: I called the local newspaper's classified section to complain about an ad I'd placed. It was obvious the person who took my information had never spent any time on a farm. "I said 'ewes,'" I argued. "Pardon?" replied the operator. "Ewes. It makes a difference to some people." The ad had read, "Sheep for sale: Used."
Thanks to Wendy for this: Years ago, there was an old tale in the Marine Corps about a Lieutenant who inspected his men and told the 'gunny' that they smelled bad. The Lieutenant suggested that they change their underwear. The Gunny responded, "Aye, aye, sir, I'll see to it immediately!" He went into the tent and said, "The lieutenant thinks you guys smell bad, and wants you to change your underwear. Smith, you change with Jones. McCarthy, you change with Dzwill. Brown, you change with Schultz. Get to it." The moral: A candidate may promise 'change' in Washington, but don't count on things smelling any better.
Thanks to Wade for this picture Here in North Idaho, at the 23 mile marker of hwy 57 if you look to the east you will see this iconic symbol. The kids around here call it the Dragon Tree, and I find it appropriate. I hope it stands for many years to come. Wade

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Cory Davis in Sekiu, Washington Sent in by Sandie Woman shot herself with a stove The Associated Press Published: Thursday, October 9, 2008 at 2:39 a.m. Last Modified: Thursday, October 9, 2008 at 2:42 a.m. SEKIU, Wash. A woman in Washington state says her cast-iron stove shot her in the leg. Cory Davis tells the Peninsula Daily News that she had just stoked the heating stove in her home Sunday when she heard a loud bang and was struck in her left calf. She says she initially thought "that was one fast hot coal flying at me." In fact, she was hit by part of a 22-gauge shotgun shell that she had accidentally put into the stove with newspapers she used to light it. A box of shells had spilled nearby a few weeks before. Davis says she removed the metal fragment herself Sunday and sought treatment for the shallow wound the next day.
Recently launched into the "real world" and shocked by the expenses that came with it, my brother was complaining about the high cost of auto insurance. "If you got married," teased my dad, "the premium would be much lower." My brother smiled and said, "Dad, that would be like buying an airline just to get free peanuts."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Anita Re: write PDF files Dear Webby I want to get a flier printed at Staples, but they ask for it in PDF format. I have MS Office, but that can't write in that format. Do I have to buy the full Adobe for $900 just for that? And why is Staples asking for it in that expensive format? Anita Dear Anita PDF is a platform independent format. No matter what kind of computer people use, a PDF page looks exactly the same. That is why most print shops ask for that format. There is no need to buy the full Adobe. Just get Open Office. There is a link to it in my tool box at It is free. With it you can pick up your MS Office files and export them to PDF format, ready to send to any print shop, and it won't cost you a penny. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Vickster for this: Mary says to her daughter, "Ever since I reached 65, I've been feeling that my body had gotten totally out of shape. So I made a big decision - I went to my doctor and got his OK to start doing some exercise. And yest- erday I went to LA Fitness and booked into their aerobics class for seniors." "That's great mom, so how did it go?" asks her daughter. "Well, for thirty minutes I sweated by bending, twisting, pulling, pushing and hopping up and down. But then, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over."

A small boy walked into a police station one day and said, 'I've got three big brothers and we all live in the same room. My eldest brother has seven cats. Another one has three dogs and the third has a goat. I want you to do something about the smell.' 'Are the any windows in your room?' asked the officer. 'Yes, of course there are!' said the boy. 'Have you tried opening them?' 'What and lose all my pigeons....?'
