Good Morning,  !
It's Thursday, May 6, 2010

Good Morning, ! It's early morning here, in Hurricane, Utah. We had gone for supper to Lupitas, a Mexican restaurant we had been to before, about five years ago. We had Fajitas again. This time they were totally bland but really greasy. It seemed like the cook had run out of Fajita spices and just used a lot of grease and MSG. MSG has a very predictable effect on me. It makes me very sleepy. After we got back to the hotel I answered email for an hour, but then felt an irresistable urge to have a brief nap. When I regained consciousness, at 4 am, I was not happy. By now all newsletters should have been written and sent out. I will most definitely stay away from Lupitas and the world's blandest Fajitas. Yesterday we traveled South from Escalante and took a mess of pictures of all the orange and apricot-red spires north of Bryce canyon, but didn't go elbow tourists right at the canyon. Done that often enough. Instead, we headed North to Panguitch. The road from there to Broken Cedar National Monument unfortunately was closed. It had snowed the night before and they had not cleared the road yet. Apparently no Glow-Bull warming there. So we headed straight south to the Kanab National Forest. Great scenery and fast, beautiful mountain road. Lake Jacobs, behind the Grand Canyon, looked closed too, but it's not far from there to a breathtaking viewpoint over the Vermillion Cliffs. For those of you, who have never seen the Vermillion Cliffs, it is a red rock cliff 3000 to 6500 feet tall rising abruptly from a flat valley, for over 40 miles! Yes, a 40 mile long red cliff rising out of a green valley. When you come over the crest of the mountain facing them, there is the valley and the cliffs. POW! No matter how often you have seen them, they are totally\ awesome. After gazing at them for a while, we headed North again to Carmel Junction and took a left through Zion Park. Zion Park is breathtaking at any time, but is by far the best very late in the afternoon, when the evening sun casts a warm glow and deep contrasts on all the red and orangy spires. The proper way to enjoy Zion Park would be standing up in a convertible, but with a lot of photo stops the park is awesome enough. Expect tourists to stop in the middle of the road to gawk and take pictures. Just grin and use the opportunity to take some pictures too. You would be extremely silly trying to be in a hurry through Zion Park anyway. By the way, the $25 toll for the park gives you a permit to enter the park for seven days. If it is your first time to see Zion Park, plan on spending a night at either end and seeing it again the next day. You will see a lot, that you missed on the first trip through. Have FUN! DearWebby

A woman was in the habit of having long telephone conversations that sometimes lasted over an hour. One day she hung up after 25 minutes. "What is the matter?" asked her husband. "You were on the phone talking for less than half an hour." "I got a wrong number," the woman replied.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a 20 year old car thief from Milwaukee, Wisconsin Car thief in drag leads cops on high-speed chase A man dressed in women's clothing and makeup has been stealing cars and leading police on high-speed chases. According to Wauwatosa police: The most recent incident occurred Friday morning, when a motorcycle cop stopped a speeding vehicle in the 9800 block of Byron Place. The officer immediately noticed the male driver was dressed as a woman, so he asked for identification. The driver did not have a license and got nervous when the officer asked who owned the car. The driver quickly accelerated the car and fled. A chase ensued for about a minute, but with the fleeing vehicle reaching speeds of 100 mph and driving recklessly, officers decided to stop the chase for the safety of other drivers. A check of the license plate number showed the vehicle had been stolen from Brookfield Square two weeks earlier. Brookfield police say the driver is a 20-year-old Milwaukee man who has taken several vehicles and used them in high-speed chases, each time dressed in women's clothing and makeup. One of these days they are going to get him and not let him get away.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Annette re: Mouse dies after two minutes Dear Webby I need your help sweetheart! why is it everytime here lately I am online about 2 mins and my mouse freezes up? what can I do to stop this?, I love your letter every day and I do appreciate all you do, I know you put a lot of work into your website, take care and thanks for all your help, Sincerly, Annette. Dear Annette I would try replacing the driver for that mouse straight from the CD, that came with it, or downloaded from the manufacturer's web site. If that doesn't help, replace the mouse. You may be able to limp along by unplugging and re-plugging the mouse, whenever it locks up. If that briefly helps, it is a good indication that it is time for a replacement. If a different mouse does not cause the same problem, don't put the bad mouse on a shelf to frustrate you again some other time. Dispose of it permanently. Have FUN! DearWebby
A heart surgeon died and his wife carefully planned his funeral. She had arranged for his coffin to sit in front of a large heart made from flowers. At the end of the funeral the heart opened and the coffin was rolled into it. At that point a man in the back started laughing hysterically. The woman beside him, appalled at his behavior, asked "Why are you laughing!" "I was just thinking about my own funeral," he sputtered out between laughs. "I am a ......ologist!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Mother's Day Garden For Mother's Day 7 years ago, my husband and sons picked several rose bushes to plant for me in my "Mother's Day" Garden. It has bloomed beautifully since then and it was great to have all 4 sons and my husband work together on a project for me.

The crumbling, old church building needed re- modeling, so the preacher made an impassioned appeal, looking directly at the richest may in town. At the end of the message, the rich man stood up and announced, "Pastor, I will contribute $1,000." Just then, plaster fell from the ceiling and struck the rich man on the shoulder. He promptly stood again and shouted, "Pastor, I will increase my donation to $5,000." As he sat back down, somebody a few rows behind him lightly tossed a bit of plaster that had fallen there, onto him. The rich guy virtually screamed, "Pastor, I will double my last pledge." As he sat down, somebody tossed an even larger chunk of plaster onto him. He jumped up once more and hollered, "Pastor, I will give $20,000!" This prompted a deacon, who had not seen the pranksters, to shout, "Hit him again, Lord! Hit him again! We'll get a new church yet!"

Brenda's 6 year old was explaining to the other kids what "extinct" meant: "Well," she said in all seriousness, "it means that the dinosaurs are all dead and have been dead so long they don't stink anymore, that's why they call them exstinkt."
