His wife phoned Abe in the office and said: "Darling, come home early, we are going to have my mother for dinner." "Good" replied Abe, "make sure she's well done!".
The plane was only half-full. When an attractive young woman asked if the seat next to mine was free, my male ego soared. Soon we were chatting pleasantly, and she told me it was her first flight. "Mom said to sit next to someone I thought I could trust," she confessed nervously. "And you look just like my dad."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Mark Alan Clair, 43 and Shannon Blake McAlister, 42 in Yukon, Oklahoma Police Say 911 Call from stolen phone Led to Drug Bust By Rusty Surette, NEWS 9 YUKON, Oklahoma -- Yukon police said a big drug bust was made possible thanks to an accidental call to 911. Yukon dispatchers said they got the call last week from a cell phone. Dispatchers thought it was just another accidental call, but instead of hanging up, they stayed on the line and listened to the conversation in the background. "We could hear two men talking in the background," said Yukon Cpl. Shane Ingram. "They were talking about, in detail, about drug deals." Immediately, police began tracking the call and the conversation never stopped. Dispatchers were able to use 911 mapping technology to pinpoint where the call was coming from. Officers say when they knocked on the door, the men inside, Mark Clair and Shannon McAlister, were shocked. A cell phone crammed in a coat pocket had accidentally dialed 911 and now they were frantically trying to hide their stash. "What I guess he didn't realize was that during the shuffling and trying to hide it, they didn't get it all hidden and there was plenty in plain view, said Cpl. Ingram Inside the home in the 1300 block of Summerton Place police found Xanax, Hydrocondone, Oxycontin, Ecstasy and marijuana. Rough estimates put the value of the drugs at $20,000, but the story Yukon officers now have is priceless. Mark Alan Clair, 43, and Shannon Blake McAlister, 42, were both taken into custody and face a long list of charges including possession of controlled dangerous substances and intent to distribute narcotics. Police said the phone that placed the 911 call was a stolen cell phone.

When Lisa noticed a broken vise in the trash can, she decided to buy her husband a new one for his birthday. She went to the hardware store and asked the salesman, "Do you have any heavy-duty vises?" "Sorry, ma'am," he replied. "I gave them all up when I got caught."
Daily tip from Make a Keepsake of Old T-Shirts My daughter had two old camp shirts. One was a tie-die and the other had the name of the camp. They were too small and had a couple of stains. After washing, I turned the tie-died one into a small pillow. I cut the camp name out of the other shirt. Before I stuffed the pillow I sewed on the camp name. Now my daughter has a wonderful keepsake of her camp time! By SA from Georgia Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

The young construction worker was boasting that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of one of his older co-workers. Finally, the old guy decided he'd had enough and said to the youngster, "Why don't you put your money where your mouth is? I will bet a week's wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you won't be able to wheel back." "You're on, old man," the braggart said. "Let's see you do your stuff!" The old man reached out and grabbed a wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right. Get in."

When a guy's printer began to grow faint, he called a local repair shop where a friendly man informed him that the printer probably needed only to be cleaned. Because the store charged $50 for such cleanings, he told him he might be better off reading the printer's manual and trying the job himself. Pleasantly surprised by his candor, he asked, "Does your boss know that you discourage business?" "Actually, it is my boss's idea," the employee replied sheepishly. "We usually make a LOT more money on repairs if we let people try to fix things themselves first."
