Dwayne, his wife, and Dwayne's mother-in-law went camping. Dwayne's wife announced that her mother had been gone on her stroll in the woods way too long. So the two of them went looking for her. After a while they spotted a gigantic, ferocious grizzly bear squared off with the mother-in-law! Immediately the daughter said to her husband, in a frantic voice, "Dwayne you gotta do something, or there's gonna be trouble fer sure!" Dwayne calmly said, "Nah, those grizzllies are a lot tougher than they look. He'll live."
A guy is driving along with his wife in their Cadillac, asked his wife: "Darling, if I lose all my money, will you still love me?" She answers: "of course I will, I will probably miss you too."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Mark Turner, 23, of Lower Bank Road, Fulwood, Preston, UK Man busted as he helped girlfriend out of trousers A man was nailed for drug possession after he went into the ladies loos to undo his girlfriend's trousers so she would not ruin her new nail varnish. Mark Turner, a jobless 23-year-old, of Lower Bank Road, Fulwood, Preston, pleaded guilty to illegal possession of cannabis. Blackpool magistrates decided the 18 hours he had spent in custody would serve in lieu of a 65 fine and ordered the drugs to be destroyed by someone other than him.. Philip Turner, prosecuting, said a police officer became suspicious when he saw Turner and a woman go into the ladies public toilets at Blackpool's Talbot Road bus station on Tuesday (January 12) at 4.15pm. The prosecutor added: "The officer followed them and knocked on the cubicle door. The defendant said he was helping his girlfriend." Turner was searched when he left the cubicle and two wraps of cannabis were found on him. Stephen Duffy, defending, said Turner and his girlfriend were waiting for a bus home when she had to go to the toilet. Mr Duffy added: "She had just had her nails done and was apparently unable to unfasten her trousers herself without damaging her new nail polish, so he accompanied her to assist her.

Randall Dear Randall The Taliban at Yahoo lied to you, again. Their affairs are NOT in order. You are not the only one whose subscriptions they fail to deliver. Judging by the feedback, Yahoo fails to deliver to more than half of their victims. The Humor Letter is sent out to you every night, however, once it has entered the Yahoo server, there is nothing more that I can do about it. Then it is strictly between them and you. The Humor letter jumps through all 20 Best Practises hoops: 1) Listed Sender ID, 2) Permanent IP address, 3) Proper SPF record, 4) Matching forward and reverse DNS, 5) Approved privacy policy, 6) Full contact information, 7) Strictly Double Opt-In, 8) Not on any blacklist, 9) Uses an IP address that has never been used for spamming, 10) Is family safe 11) Has live, same day response to replies, no auto-responders 12) Has an on-line copy that is top listed at Google AND Bing 13) Unsubscribe link at the bottom of every newsletter 14) More than 10 year history of compliance to Best Practises 15) Works fine with all competent mail services 16) Does not have any attachments 17) Does not burden email with embedded pictures or movies 18) Calls pictures from a properly identified server with matching forward and reverse DNS and SPF record 19) Does NOT send solo ads or ANY advertising mails to subscribers 20) Is listed with the Ezinefinder (http://ezinefinder.com) There is nothing more that I or anyone can do. You can try wasting more time arguing with the incompetent yahoos and tell them what they are full of, or you can get yourself a respectable address on the side. Gmail is free and reliable, and you can make basic filters. Have FUN! DearWebby
Morris complained to his doctor, "I've been to three other doctors and none of them agreed with your diagnosis." The doctor got rather upset that his word was doubted and yelled: "You just wait until the autopsy, then you will see that I was right."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thrifty Fabric for Homemade Clothing I have made shorts and blouses from a large bed sheet, also curtains, pillow cases etc. It's often cheaper than fabric from fabric store. You can make skirts from neck ties. Take them apart, press with steam or wet cloth, sew together. Put a zipper and a band on it, make a button hole, sew button on band. I also make shorts out of pant legs. Cut legs off as high up as you can (the crotch), remove seams. Press with wet cloth or steam iron, you are ready to cut shorts out Good luck.

On vacation one year Joe went to a resort in Wyoming. As part of the usual activities, a neighboring ranch invited guests from the resort to participate in a cattle drive. After watching 120 make-believe cowpokes whooping and hollering, Joe rode up to the ranch-owner and asked her how many cowboys it normally takes to drive a herd of that size. "One," she replied, "and yappy dog. It's the noise that'll get the cattle to move."

On vacation one year Joe went to a resort in Wyoming. As part of the usual activities, a neighboring ranch allowed guests from the resort to participate in a cattle drive for a mere $25. After watching 120 make-believe cowpokes whooping and hollering, Joe rode up to the ranch-owner and asked her how many cowboys it normally takes to drive a herd of that size. "One," she replied, "and yappy dog. They are not scared, but the noise bothers cattle, and that'll get them to move."
