Good Morning,  !
Today is Monday, October 3

I snuck out this morning to get some fall color pictures and
drove up to Sheep River Falls. The trick there is to be early,
not just before the crowds, but before the sun is overhead 
or behind the falls. Luckily I seem to be almost the only one
to know that. 

There sure were a lot of vehicles headed up there when I
was coming back.

Have FUN!

One day a State Trooper was pulling off an expressway near Chicago. When he turned onto the street at the end of the ramp, he noticed someone at a chicken place getting into his car. The driver placed the bucket of chicken on top of his car, got in and drove off with the bucket still on top of his car. So the trooper decides to pull him over and perform a community service by giving the driver his chicken. So he pulled him over, walked up to the car, pulled the bucket off the roof and offered it to the driver. The driver looks at the trooper and says, "No thanks, I just bought some." "OK, if you say so!"

Thanks to Gran for this story: My husband was once employed in the printing division of a large manufacturing firm. One morning, word came from the top that some visiting VIPs would be touring the plant in just a few minutes. All production was immediately shut down as employees scrambled to quickly tidy up the work place. When the appointed lookout yelled, "Here they come!" fifty fingers that were poised over fifty machine start-up buttons pressed down in unison and blew the main beaker for the building.
Teddy came thundering down the stairs, much to his father's annoyance. "Teddy," he called, "how many more times have I got to tell you to come downstairs quietly? Now, go back upstairs and come down like a civilized human being." There was a silence, and Teddy reappeared in the front room. "That's better," said his father, "now in future will you always come down stairs like that." "Suits me," said Teddy. "I slid down the railing." Click through for the big picture. I managed to sneak out this morning and get some fall pictures.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Albert Tejeda, 31 in Casa Grande, AZ ID'd by Tattoo CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – A man was arrested after fleeing from police during a traffic stop. A Pinal County sheriff’s deputy tried to conduct a traffic stop on a 2003 Toyota vehicle for a traffic violation Monday morning in the area of First Street and Jimmie Kerr Boulevard. The driver pulled over, but as the deputy approached the vehicle, the man sped off, prompting a police pursuit outside of Casa Grande. The chase was called off when the suspect drove into a residential area and construction zone. The driver was identified based on records from the Motor Vehicle Division, that indicate the suspect has tattoos on his face. He is identified as Albert Tejeda, 31. Deputies caught up to the suspect as he was walking near Second Street and Cameron Avenue. He was carrying a duffle bag with a Samurai-style sword sticking out. Tejeda resisted arrest at first, but a K9 unit was deployed and he was taken into custody without further incident. He faces charges including felony flight from pursuing law enforcement vehicle and misconduct involving weapons. Plus, speeding in a construction zone.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Trinity Re: Computer Sound Dear Webby From Trinity Re: Sound Dear Webby, My computer corner is one of those "hutch" type desk/shelves combos and I have no room for big speakers, plus I don't want to shell out the ridiculous amounts of money they want for them, when I have a perfectly good Surround-Sound music system already in the room. Is there a way to tap into the squeaker-speakers that came with the computer? Trinity Dear Trinity Yes, sure there is. Have a look at your sound system and find a socket labelled AUX in the front, or four screws or clamps labelled AUX in the back. Measure the distance between the computer and that AUX connection and get a shielded sound cable of that length with a 1/8" 3 wire plug on the computer side, and whatever size plug you need on the sound system side. Before you plug it in, turn down the volume on the computer way down so as not to blow up your sound system. Keep in mind that your sound system has a very powerful amplifier. Gradually turn up the volume. Most computer sound cards work best in the lower quarter of their volume range. Use the sound system's amplifier to get the volume you want. Have FUN! DearWebby

Jill complained to Nina, "Rosey told me that you told her the secret I told you not to tell her." "Well," replied Nina in a hurt tone, "I told her not to tell you I told her." "Oh dear!" sighed Jill. "Well, don't tell her I told you that she told me."

Listening to a young Yuppie couple argue as they waited for their prescriptions at least helped me pass the time. When their meds were finally ready, they paid and walked away. The druggist stood there and shook his head. I asked, "What's with them ?" He sighed and replied, "They're incompatible. He's on Xanax and she's on Prozac."

Miss Prussy was going over mischievous Melvin Messpot's records with his anxious parents. On one page was the statement, "Melvin used fowl language today." Mr. Messpot, hoping to put the teacher in a bad light, snickered, "Ha! You spelled foul wrong." Miss Prussy corrected, "No, I meant F-O-W-L. Your child called me a big fat pile of chicken sh*t."
