Thanks to Judy for this one: Had to send you this true story: My niece has 4 kids and was breast feeding the baby when #3 child, Jack wanted to climb up into her lap. During the process he was using his elbows to push his way up and hit her other breast so she said: 'watch the elbows Jack'. When Grandmother came over later, Jack climbed up into her lap, patted her rather ample bosom and said 'I like your elbows, Grandma'. Needless to say, they will always be elbows to us from now on! Thanks for all the fun you send, Judy

Two paramedics were dispatched to check on an elderly man who had become disoriented. They decided to take him to the hospital for evaluation. En route, with siren going, they questioned the man to determine his level of awareness. Leaning close, one asked, "Sir, do you know what we're doing right now?" The old man slowly looked out the ambulance window. "Oh," he replied, "I'd say about 50, 55 at the most."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Daniel Augustus Jones Jr., 22 from Gainesville, Florida Forgetful pot dealer leaps through cop-car window A Gainesville man was arrested on charges of drug possession and resisting arrest after police say they found a bag of marijuana on him and that while taking him to jail he leapt from an open window of the patrol car. Gainesville Police Department officers said they found Daniel Augustus Jones Jr., 22, of 1239 SE 19th Terrace, standing in the middle of the intersection of Southeast 19th Street and 12th Avenue at about 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, apparently wodering whether he was coming or going. The officers said Jones was visibly shaking and smelled of marijuana and that he refused their commands to stop when he began walking away from them. Officer Tony Ferro said Jones spontaneously told him, “I don't have any drugs on me,” and started to empty his backpack onto the street. Among the contents, officers said they spotted a plastic bag filled with about a quarter-pound of marijuana. As Ferro and Officer Anton Lipski tried to arrest Jones, they said he began fighting with them and was pepper sprayed before being put in the back of Ferro's patrol car. Jones asked to have the window rolled down so that he could get air. “I feared (Jones) would kick my patrol car window out, and I rolled the window down,” Ferro wrote in the arrest report. While the car was in motion and Jones was still handcuffed, he “dove out of the rear side window,” Jones wrote. Ferro said Jones had to be shot with a Taser stun gun because he continued to fight with officers after being tackled while handcuffed. Jones was taken to Shands at the University of Florida in handcuffs and shackles to be treated for cuts and bruises before being booked into the jail. Officers Ferro and Lipski also received minor cuts and scrapes. In addition to the marijuana, officers reported finding $172 and a digital scale in Jones' possession. While being questioned after his arrest, Jones told Ferro he “forgot he had the bag of weed.” Jones was charged with possession with intent to sell marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and resisting arrest with and without violence. Jones has served two state prison terms and was most recently released on Dec. 13, 2010. His sentences had been for convictions of burglary, trafficking in stolen property and dealing dugs within 1,000 feet of a school or day care.
From the Tech Support Pits: From Lori Re: Firefox vs IE9 Dear Webby, I currently have both Firefox 4 and ie 9 on my computer. I only use firefox 4, but several well-meaning idiots, I mean friends, insist I should be using ie 9. They claim it is better, faster, and more safe than firefox. When I have compared them on my computer using my internet connection (a faster type of dial-up, 54 mbps as of right now) firefox works faster and cleaner. What is your opinion? I am going to keep using firefox, but an unbiased opinion would be helpful. Lori PS I love your site and am glad you are feeling better. For walking, I wear a pair of knock-off tone up shoes. They have really helped my ankles. Just start slow when you start wearing them and work up to wearing them more. Dear Lori Your friends sound like a bunch of Yugo drivers, trying to pull you down to their level and limit you to their speed. Don't worry about it. Some of them may grow up yet. Since I don't need IE for anything, I still have IE6 on my machine. That one is reasonably stable, if ever the occasion arises to use IE. Normally, if a site demands that I use any certain browser, I go to a better site, that is up to standard. What are "knock-off tone up shoes"? Have you got a picture? Have FUN DearWebby

The husband didn't want to play in the "Couples Alternate Shot Tournament" at the club, but he reluctantly agreed just for the sake of martial harmony. He got the first shot. He teed off, a par four, and fired a drive 300 yard down the middle of the fairway. When they reached the ball, he said to his wife (a novice golfer), "Just hit it towards the green, hon, anywhere around there will be fine." She proceeded to knock the ball deep into the woods off to th left side. Undaunted, he said, "That's ok, dear, we'll play it." He spent five full minutes looking for the ball. He played it for the shot of his life and actually put the ball just two feet from the hole on the green. Arriving on the green he said, "Now, dear, all you have to do is knock it gently into the hole." She whacked it a good one, right off the green and into a sand trap. The husband, still retaining his composure, marched into the sand trap, summoned all of his skill, and amazingly holed the shot from there. Retrieving the ball from the hole he put his arm around his wife and calmly said, "Honey, that was a bogey -- one over par -- but that's ok. I think we can do better on the next hole." She snapped back at him, "Don't bitch at ME. Only *2* of those *FIVE* shots were mine!"

A nearsighted minister glanced at the note that Mrs. Jones had sent to him by an usher. The note read: "Bill Jones, having gone to sea, his wife requests the prayers of the congregation for his safety." Failing to observe the punctuation, he startled his audience by announcing: "Bill Jones, having gone to see his wife, desires the prayers of the congregation for his safety."

Jean is a very nervous flyer. During a trip with United lately it didn't help that her connecting flight from Denver was delayed twice because of mechanical problems. Then, after they were aloft, Jean noticed the lights began flickering. She mentioned this to a flight attendant. "I'll take care of it," the elderly stewardess said. Moments later the lights went out. Clearly she'd solved the problem by turning off the lights. A passenger across the aisle who had been listening leaned over and said, "Whatever you do, please don't sayanything about the engines."
