When I was leaving to go to Okotoks this afternoon my big, 
heavy wind chime, a gift from Sandie, after I admired hers 
during hurricane Wilma a few years ago, was bouncing and 
gonging like crazy. I got about a block, then snow squalls 
suddenly appeared. In the 70 km/h zone, they passed me!

Just past that zone, the highway makes a right angle turn and 
runs South to North for half a mile, crosswise to the wind.
There was a van a bit ahead of me, facing about 20 degrees 
towards the left, but moving straight, like a sail boat. Well, 
a moment later I had to do the same for that half mile.

From there to Okotoks it was straight downwind. At times
the snow squalls were keeping up with me, at times they 
were passing me. I got excellent gas mileage!

In Okotoks I had to use my feet against the door to get 
it open, but then got a mighty push towards the store and
arrived there a lot faster than I had intended.

By the time I came out of the store, the Chinook had blown
away all the cold and moist and snowy air and was blowing
a dry and almost warm.

Toronto and Chicago, you definitely ARE going to get 
White Christmas. By the time this Chinook has crossed
the prairies and th Great Lakes, it is going to be loaded!

Have FUN!

During the last session of our teaching workshop, participants were asked to state their personal goals for the immediate future. One teacher vowed to update photo albums, another to lose weight. The goal that got the most response, however, was given by a slightly out-of-shape kindergarten teacher. "I resolve to exercise until I can complete a 20-minute workout with less than 3 coffee and cake breaks," she said.

While making his rounds, a doctor points out an x-ray to a group of medical students. “As you can see,” he says, “the patient limps because his left fibula and tibia are radically arched.” The doctor turns to one of the students and asks, “What would you do in a case like this?” “Well,” ponders the student, “I suppose I’d probably limp, too.”

Dear Webby, Just one month ago I was introduced to your wonderful Humor Page, but it's the first thing I read every morning. It somehow puts a bit of sun and a good start to the day. Many of the truly funny jokes I forward to friends. I love reading about your personal reports from your wintery home, while I swelter in 30 degrees plus. So I am sending you a bit of my own hot summer entertainment on the veranda, to have a glimpse of the other side of the world. Many are grateful for the efforts you put into cheering up this often chaotic and traumatised planet. I am sure of that. My best wishes and looking forward to more Webby fun. Christine B.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Elaine Emter, 33, of Edmonton, Alberta Woman demands more fudge, bites cop EDMONTON, Alberta (UPI) -- A Canadian woman accused of biting a police officer during a fracas over a hot fudge sundae was given probation and community service after pleading guilty. Elaine Emter, 33, of Edmonton, Alberta, pleaded guilty Wednesday to causing a disturbance and resisting arrest, yielding her 18 months of probation with 40 hours of community service, the Edmonton Sun reported. The incident will be removed from Emter's record if she successfully completes the conditions of her discharge, Judge Donna Groves ruled. Crown prosecutor Laura Marr said Emter became disruptive at a McDonald's drive-through March 15 and insisted there was not enough hot fudge on her sundae. However, workers would not exchange the item without a receipt. Marr said officers arrived and questioned Emter while she was still in the parking lot and she was "in their faces" shouting. The prosecutor said Emter tried to drive away, but was stopped and informed she was being charged with causing a disturbance. However, the woman refused to get out of her car and one of the officers had to place her in a choke hold so she could be handcuffed. Marr said Emter then bit one of the officers and they twice used a stun gun on her head to subdue her.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Karlie Re: Reminder Service Dear Webby, Do you know of a reminder service, that is cheap, or at least affordable, and still reliable? Thanks Karlie --------------------- Dear Karlie I use MyMemorizer. It is free and 100% reliable. Some great people in Sweden provide it.

A member of the Country Club asked the lifeguard how he might go about teaching a young lady to swim. "It takes considerable time and technique." replied the guard. "First you must take her into the water, then place one arm about her waist, hold her tightly, then take her right arm and raise it very slowly..." "This is certainly most helpful." said the member. "I know that my mother-in-law would appreciate that." "Your mother-in-law?" said the lifeguard. "In that case, just push her into the deep end of the pool. She'll learn to swim in a hurry."

One day a boy and his father were at the dining room table working on the boy's Social Studies homework, the chapter about government. The boy turned to his father and asked, "Dad, how many people work in the U.S. government?" Without hesitation, his father said, "Oh, about half of them."
