The Father, passing thru the son's college town late one night on a business trip, thought he would pay a surprise visit to the boy. Arriving at the fraternity house, he knocked on the door. After several minutes of knocking, a sleepy voice drifted down from a second floor window. "Whaddya want?" "Does Jimmy Duncan live here?" asked the father. "Yeah!" replied the voice. "Dump him on the front porch and we'll drag him in in the morning."
A man and his wife are walking down the street when he suddenly said, "That lovely girl just looked at me and smiled." "That doesn't surprise me in the slightest," his wife replied. "The first time I saw you I laughed out loud."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gregory McCalium, 23 in Botley, England Don't mess with Grampas! BOTLEY, England -- A word of warning for a 23-year-old burglar who tried to rob a 72-year-old man at knife point- next time, pick on somebody your own age! Frank Corti is a grandfather, and unfortunately for the burglar, a former army boxer. Gregory McCalium was reportedly still drunk from an all-night party when he went into the Cortis house at 8am on August 19 last year. Prosecutors say he threatened Mr Corti with a knife but the former featherweight boxer dodged it, punching McCalium twice in the face before pinning him to a wall. The burglar was left with a black eye, split lip and severe swelling. McCalium was jailed for four and a half years on Monday after a jury at Oxford Crown Court found him guilty of aggravated burglary following a trial in March.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Ruth Re: Netbook keyboard Dear Webby My hubby got me one of those Netbooks, but I find that tiny keyboard even worse than it's small screen. I can't get any reasonable amount of work done on it. Can I plug a regular keyboard into it? What do you recommend? Ruth Dear Ruth Those netbooks are intended for yuppies who don't have the strength and endurance to carry a laptop, but feel the need to carry a status symbol. They are not really intended for getting serious work done. Give it to your hubby and buy yourself a full size laptop, if you need to be mobile, or else a desktop. In the meantime, you CAN plug a regular keyboard into a USB port on the netbook. Have FUN! DearWebby
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."


Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Buy Candles at Thrift Stores Thrift stores can be a good source for candles! I am burning up my stock over the holidays and snagged some decorative ones in my thrift shop wanderings, good ones, too. The tapers may be slightly damaged, used or, in my case, a bit melted out of shape at the top - but those are problems easily fixed with trimming.

When a husband finally gave in and began to clean out his bureau, he discovered a bunch of socks that didn't match. As his wife looked at them, she noted that most of them had holes in them. "Land's sakes, man !" she exclaimed. "How long have you had these things?" "Since before we were married," he admitted. "I guess you could say that I had a lot of premarital socks!"
