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."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Brandi Smith, 41 of Gardnerville, Nevada Topless, drunk woman accused of theft, DUI Wednesday, May 12, 2010 A 41-year-old Gardnerville woman, intoxicated and topless, was hospitalized Monday after she reportedly stole a bottle of wine from a Gardnerville grocery store and nearly drove into a fast food restaurant in the midst of a raging snow squall. According to witnesses, a woman identified as Brandi Smith, was driving erratically before pulling into the parking lot at Scolari's grocery store. Smith, naked from the waist up, entered Scolari's and left without paying for a $20 bottle of wine. The store provided video footage of Smith. One of the clerks said he confronted her about her lack of clothing and said, “She just walked right past me,” without acknowledging him and left the store. She got into her car and drove toward Burger King. She stopped near the entrance to the drive-through with the right front tire over the curb and in the landscaping. She was met by an off-duty sheriff's deputy who removed the keys from the ignition and held the driver's door closed to keep her in the vehicle. Paramedics took her to Carson Valley Medical Center for treatment. A preliminary breath test at the center indicated a breath-alcohol content of .144, nearly twice the legal limit. The sheriff's office originally was contacted by a motorist who reported the driver of a black Corvette driving erratically from Tillman and Dresslerville in the Gardnerville Ranchos, down Centerville, nearly hitting the abutment at Lutheran bridge. He followed the car to the shopping center and watched Smith exit the vehicle and enter the store. A search of her records indicated two prior convictions of driving under the influence in California in 2008 and 2009. Her California driver's license is suspended and there is no record of a Nevada license. She also is on probation in Douglas County for an October theft of beer from the Tillman Lane 7-Eleven. She remained hospitalized for observation, according to reports, while they check how many other jurisdictions are looking for her.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Suryakant re: Problem with Audio Recording Dear Webby Thanks a lot for helping me several times before. Now here is yet another problem. While replying to a reader’s query, you recommended “Audacity” to record streaming audio. I downloaded Audacity and was using it for various applications to audio files. But since last week Audacity stopped recording. Presuming that the program might be corrupted, I downloaded it again but there is no change in the situation. Before downloading audacity I was using “Digital Audio Recorder” from This program records streaming audio in MP3 format. But now this program is also not working. What might be wrong? Is there any setting that is disturbed or is it a problem with my sound card? Suryakant Dear Suryakant Theortically Audacity should have straightened out any settings, when you re-installed it. I have used it occasionally for just that purpose. I am by no means a specialist in audio, since it always worked fine for me, without having to read instructions or experimenting. Try contacting the maker of your computer. Chances are good that they came across that problem before. Have FUN! DearWebby
In his Sunday sermon the preacher used "Forgive Your Enemies" as his subject. After a much too long sermon, he asked how many were willing to forgive their enemies. With thoughts of awaiting Sunday dinners all responded except one old woman in the rear. "Mrs. Jones, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?' "I don't have any." "Mrs. Jones, that is very unusual. How old are you?" "Eighty-six" "Mrs. Jones, please come down in front and tell this congregation how a woman can live to eighty-six and not have an enemy in the world." The old woman teetered down the aisle and slowly turned around and said "It's easy. I just outlived the B's and SOB's."
Daily tip from Find Craft Supplies at Garage Sales Garage sales are great. There is such an endless variety, and you never know what you will find. If you're into crafting the garage sale can be a goldmine. The goldmine is the joy you feel when you see a table full of fabric, a box filled with skeins of yarn, dozens of frames and pictures, and all priced from 10 cents to a dollar. I found little frames 4/$1.00, in perfect condition. I could have put little pictures in them, but opted to place my pressed flowers in them and use them on top of gift boxes, in place of cards. It was a pretty touch, and cheaper than a card or a bow. By Deb from East Brunswick, NJ Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

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!"
