Thanks to Sandie for this story: Maggy had wanted new kitchen cabinets for a long time, but her husband insisted they were an extravagance. She went to visit her mother for two weeks, and when she returned, she was overjoyed to find that beautiful new cabinets had been installed in her kitchen. A few days later, a neighbor came over to visit and after admiring the new cabinets, the neighbor added, "All of us were so glad that the fire your husband had, while you were gone was confined to the kitchen."
The other day my neighbor was playing golf and saw an unusual thing. A golfer became so mad that he threw his brand new set of golf clubs into the lake. A few minutes later he came back, waded into the lake, and retrieved his club bag. He proceeded to take his car keys out of the bag -- then threw the clubs back into the water.
Thanks to Steve for this picture of the petroglyphs at Escalante, Utah. Steve was the climber I mentioned on May 5th, who gave me a helping hand on a tricky spot on the way up that cliff. He has a ton more pictures on his FB page. Just click on his picture to get there.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Nathan Jay Seidel, 19 and Tyler Joseph McLaughin, 19 in Sioux falls, SD Two Sioux Falls men charged with robbery of pizza delivery man Two Sioux Falls men were jailed early this morning after a pizza delivery order turned into a robbery outside a central Sioux Falls apartment complex. A delivery driver for Boss' Pizza and Chicken left to deliver an order to an apartment complex on the 400 block of North Lake Avenue just after 3 a.m. Tuesday, police spokesman Sean Kooistra said. As he approached the building on foot, a man appeared with a gun and demanded cash. The driver handed over his money, two pizzas and his cell phone, but the robber dropped his handgun, Kooistra said. The driver picked it up and began to beat the robber as two other men jumped out from the bushes. One of them followed the driver back to his vehicle along with the robber, and tried to stop the car by jumping on the hood. The driver called police when he got back to the store. Officers found 21-year-old Nathan Jay Seidel and 19-year-old Tyler Joseph McLaughin outside the apartment building, surrounded by pizzas and loose cash, Kooistra said. Seidel, who was bleeding from the head, attempted to ride away on a bicycle, but fell over. McLaughlin tried to run, but police caught him. Both were arrested for first-degree robbery. A third man was interviewed and released. The gun, which the delivery man brought back to the store with him, was confiscated by police.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Anita RE: Socks via Internet Dear Webby, I read your advice about knitting socks. It is indeed pretty good money. A lot of people really appreciate and even demand knit socks instead of the mass produced Chinese socks that never fit. Especially diabetics need proper fitting socks without elastics, and are quite willing to pay a good price. I can see the need for having a site where people can order socks, but how to I get paid? Do I need one of those credit card accepting merchant accounts, that everybody cusses about? Which is the least crooked one? Thanks Anita Dear Anita Fortunately you don't really need a credit card accepting merchant account any more, unles you have clients in far away countries. You can use PayPal. Your clients don't even need a PayPal account. They can pay with their regular credit or debit cards, and even pay with e-checks. If you have fixed prices, you can easily put simple PayPal buttons on your page, and don't need an expensive shopping cart. A cheap forms manager will do the trick quite nicely. I have used merchant accounts for credit card processing since the mid 80's, and still have one. Currently the best one seems to be Royal Bank of Sottland WorldPay, but nowadays I only use them, when I absolutely have to. Whenever possible, I use PayPal. We have used PayPal for about a dozen years and never had a problem with them. Our cart and all of our regular invoicing uses PayPal. PayPal has very strict rules and regulations, but as long as you are legit, you got nothing to worry about. Actually, these days, if an on-line merchant can NOT accept PayPal, then I do a LOT of extra checking, before I trust them. If you need any help with the site design, you can pay me with socks. Have FUN! DearWebby
A country woman passed out and her husband, Bubba, called 911. The operator said they would send someone out right away and asked, "Where do you live?" Bubba replied, "At the end of Eucalyptus Drive." The operator asked, "Can you spell that for me?" There was a long pause and finally, Bubba said, "How about I drag her over to Oak Street and you can meet us there?"
Daily tip from Shower Curtains as Tablecloths Now is the season for outdoor parties, graduations, etc. Instead of using paper tablecloths, use shower curtains from the dollar store. They come in all colors, and are large enough to put on any table. They're waterproof so if anything is spilled, it can be mopped up, and they can be used again!

As part of the admission procedure in the hospital where Jill work, she asks the patients if they are allergic to anything. If they are, she prints it on an allergy band placed on the patient's wrists. Once when she asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies, she said she couldn't eat bananas. Imagine Jill's surprise, when several hours later a very irate son came out to the nurses' station screaming: "Who's responsible for labeling my mother 'bananas'?"

A lady was driving from her husband's office to the kids' school, with twelve youngsters in the car, when she blew past a red light, and a police car. Much to the delight of the kids, the police officer pulled her over, wrote her a ticket, lectured her on traffic safety, and finished by saying, "Lady, don't you know when to stop?" Tomato red in the cheeks, the embarrassed woman said, "Officer, only seven of them are mine!"
