Good Morning,  !
It's Wednesday, June 22

Thanks to Ophelia for filling in for me yesterday!

Today the wind stopped. 
Here in the foothills of the Rockies that is a very rare occasion
and is formally marked on the calendar.

Within an hour the Saskatchewan Air Force attacked with their
airborne tankers, the big spring mosquitos

They are no problem. You just hit them behind the eyes with a 
baseball bat or crow bar or 2x4 and knock them out. Then the 
cowboys on horses or kids on ATVs skid them away and load 
them onto those long cattle transporters for export. Rumors have 
it, that they are processed into non-beef ravioli filler in California.

Have FUN!

A boy was watching his father, a pastor, write a sermon. "How do you know what to say?" he asked. "God tells me." "Oh, then why do you keep crossing things out?"
Someday I guess I'm just gonna get arrested, but I can't resist off-the-wall humor when people least expect it. I went into the department store and was greeted by a pretty salesgirl with a slightly foreign accent, who said, "Good ahvternoon sir, vat is it you desire?" Naturally I grinned and winked with an eyebrow. She defintiely was not slow and instantly blushed. So I told her that she was even more beautiful when she blushed. That didn't go over too well and she threw the phone at me, or would have if it hadn't had a line on it. Probably the one she was standing on. That line tore the phone out of her hand in mid swing, and bounced it against the front of her strapless tube-top. The tightly stretched tube top gave way and various top secret foam wedges and shims flew out and all over the counter top. That made her fly into a total rage, and instead of re-loading her tube top, she started throwing anything within her reach at me, including those foam items. It was quite a show! Eventually she realized that she was rather exposed and tried to pull up her tube top. That is when she found out the hard way that a size D tube does not stay put on a size B girl, unless there is some help from foam wedges and shims, but that those had bounced off my head and were mixing it up with the rubber duckies in the fountain behind me. So she shrieked and ran away, holding up her now rather lose tube-top with both hands. Luckily for me another store employee close by had watched the whole episode and came over. It took us a while, though, to stop laughing.

Formula Fogie looks like fun to look forward to, but I have always had fun with vehicles. One day, when I was still living way out of town, the engine on my truck decided to strike and I had to hitch-hike into town to get some parts. There was not much traffic in those days, but as luck would have it, a cute lady came along and stopped for me. It turned out that she was a bush-bunny and just as bushed as I was. After a few miles and smiles we sat pretty close and it became increasingly difficult to tell who was actually driving the truck. Above the town the "Old Highway" splits off. The "Old Highway" wasn't used much for driving any more, just for "parking". She pulled in there and parked. The cab of the truck was definitely too crowded, and the loading bed of the truck was not very inviting in the starting rain and her two big dogs tied up back there. However, there is lots of room under a 4x4 pick-up truck. Some time later somebody rudely kicked my leg and asked: "Just what in heck do you think you are doing here?" My vision was a bit obscured because I was on the bottom, but I recognize a police boot. So I told him: "I'm just working on her clutch." The cop chuckled and told me: "Might as well work on her parking brake too. Her truck is inside the church at the bottom of the hill."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keep Paint Samples To Coordinate Home Purchases I always keep paint chip samples from the paint I have used in various rooms of the house in my purse. I write the room on the back. That way I can always hold the paint chips up against rugs, curtains, towels, pictures, etc. when I'm out shopping or at flea markets, garage sales, or thrift stores to see if an item will coordinate. It saves me from purchasing items only to get them home and see they don't quite fit in.

When Diane found out she was pregnant, she told the good news to anyone who would listen. But her 4-year-old son overheard some of her parents' private conversations. One day when Diane and her 4-year-old were waiting in a doctors office a woman asked the little boy if he was excited about the new baby. "Yes!" the 4-year-old said, "and I know what we are going to name it, too. If it's a girl we're going to call her Christina, and if it's another boy we're going to call it Quits!"

It was the first camping experience for Jed. As soon as he had pitched his tent, he went for a hike in the woods. In about fifteen minutes he rushed back into camp, bleeding and dishevelled. "What happened?" asked a fellow camper. "I was chased by a black snake!" cried the frightened Jed. The camper laughed and retorted, "The black snakes around here aren't deadly." "Listen," groaned Jed, "If he can make you jump off a fifty-foot cliff, he is!"
