Thanks to Sandie for this story: When a customer left his cell phone in my store, I scrolled through his saved numbers, stopped at "Mom" and pushed Send. His mother answered and I told her what happened. "Don't worry," she said. "I'll take care of it." A few minutes later, the cell phone rang. It was "Mom." "Martin," she said. "You left your cell phone at the corner store."
A soldier stationed in the South Pacific wrote to his wife in the States to please send him a harmonica to occupy his free time and keep his mind off of the local women. The wife complied and sent the best one she could find, along with several dozen lesson & music books. Rotated back home, he rushed to their home and thru the front door. "Oh darling" he gushed, "Come here... let me look at you... let me hold you ! Let's have a fine dinner out, then make love all night. I've missed your lovin' so much !" The wife, keeping her distance, said, "All in good time lover. First, let's hear you play that harmonica."

Two men were boasting to each other about their old Army days. "Why, my outfit was so well drilled," declared one, "that when they presented arms all you could hear was slap, slap, click." "Very good," conceded the other, "but when my company presented arms you'd just hear slap, slap, jingle." "What was the jingle?" asked the first. "Oh," replied the other off hand, "just our medals."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Dennis Cullen, 23, in Hellertown, Pennsylvania. Drunk Parking A US couple have been arrested after having sex in their car - in a disabled space outside a police station. The couple told officers they were unaware where they had parked, reports the Morning Call newspaper. They hadn't noticed several marked police cars in the other parking spaces nearby. They were outside the main police station in Hellertown, Pennsylvania, with the engine running in the early hours of the morning when a police officer tapped on the windscreen. Dennis Cullen, 23, and his female companion, who has not been named, told police they had been drinking at a university function earlier in the evening. After they looked at his companion, Cullen was charged with drunk driving. Neither he nor his companion were charged in connection with having sex in the car. Reminds me of this little video: Scottish DUI test
Having passed the enlistment physical, Jon was asked by the doctor, "Why do you want to join the Navy, son?" "My father said it'd be a good idea, sir." "Oh? And what does your father do?" "He's in the Army, sir."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Tanya Re: Remembrance Day Services Dear Webby, Could you please tell me when the Remembrance Day Services start on Nov 11? Thanks, Tanya Dear Tanya Remembrance Day is observation starts on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, and starts with two minutes of silent remembrance. The same goes for Veterans Day. To alert shoppers and workers that it is time for the silent remembrance, many places play "Taps", "Pittance Of Time", or other appropriate music. Have FUN! DearWebby

During training exercises, the lieutenant driving down a muddy back road encountered another car stuck in the mud with a red faced colonel at the wheel. "Your jeep stuck, sir?" asked the lieutenant as he pulled alongside. "Nope," replied the colonel, coming over and handing him the keys, "Yours is."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Buying Smoke-free Items Online When buying clothing, stuffed animals or books on auction websites, make sure that the items have been in a smoke-free environment. If it's not stated in the auction description, be sure to ask the seller directly. Cigarette smoke odors can be difficult to remove, especially from stuffed toys and books.

Following some duty overseas, the officers at the Fort were planning a welcome home party and dance for the unit. Being an all male combat force, they decided to request coeds from some of the surrounding colleges to attend. The Captain called Vassar and was assured by the Dean that arrangements could be made to send over a dozen of their most trustworthy students. The Captain hesitated, then said, "Would it also be possible to send a dozen or so of the other kind ?"
