Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!
Getting cold at night and reminding me that the warming
ripple is over, and we are back to 70's style weather again.
The Saskatoon berries sure are getting sweet and juicy,
almost over ripe. I hope to squeeze out some time today to
go pick a few punds.

A young man, hired by a supermarket, reported for his
first day of work. The manager greeted him with a warm
handshake and a smile, gave him a broom and said,
"Your first job will be to sweep out the store."
"But I'm a college graduate." the young man replied
"Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know that," said the manager.

Caller to a travel agency: "I want to go from Chicago
to Bison, New York."
The agent was at a loss for words.
Finally, the agent replied: "Are you sure that's the
name of the town?"
"Yes, what flights do you have?" replied the customer.
After some searching, the agent came back with,
"I'm sorry, ma'am, I've looked up every airport code
in the country and can't find a Bison anywhere."
The customer retorted, "Oh don't be silly. Everyone
knows where it is. I got 2 cousins there ! Check your

finally offered, "Do you by any chance mean Buffalo ?"
Customer: "What's the difference? Same animal!"
The agent replied: "That may be so, but flights to Buffalo
are a lot cheaper. Do you want to fly to Buffalo, NY ?
You can take a cab from there to Bison."
Customer: "Yes, sure, whatever."

Cops Stop Shoplifting Suspects At Shop-With-A-Cop Event
PORTLAND, Ore. -- A store full of police officers didn't deter
two men from stealing items from a southeast Portland Fred
Meyer, officers said.
Portland police said 20-year-old Shane Alexander and 30-year-old
Jason Vantress took shoes, clothes, tools and blenders from the
Johnson Creek Fred Meyer Store on Southeast 82nd Avenue
on Wednesday morning during the seventh annual
Shop with a Cop event.
Dozens of police cars and mounted patrol units were in the
parking lot the morning of the incident.
Portland police said they helped arrest the men, who were
caught stealing on surveillance video, and turned them over
to store security officers. The suspects were then taken to
Clackamas County Jail.
Sixty uniformed police officers participated in the charity event,
which allowed 150 children from the Boys and Girls Club of
Portland and Rose Community Center to shop for back-to-school
Donations from Fred Meyer and the bureau's Sunshine Division
gave the kids $30,000 to spend on supplies and other necessities.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com
Citrus Peels to Keep Cats Out of Plants
My sweet kitty just loves when I dig up the dirt to plant my
flowerbeds and thinks that she's discovered a new litter box!
After trying other methods: sprinkling in hot pepper (nope),
cayenne pepper (nope), even adding clam shells into the
soil (nope), I tried this.
I heard that animals don't like citrus and so after making
orange-lemonade (3 oranges, 3 lemons and sugar to a gallon, YUM).
I slivered up the peels and sprinkled them around in my
flower bed, under petals so they didn't show. You may also
even add soil to empty citrus fruit peel halves and plant
some small flower seeds and use them as pots! It worked!
No more kitty visits!
I ended up doing the same around my vegetable garden fencing
since a groundhog started making his rounds there soon after!
Hope this helps all my creative friends out there! :D
