Good Morning,  !
Today is Thursday, November 10

Had to go to the hospital today for a check-up of my legs.
Apparently the combination of heart attacks and diabetes 
are a cause for concern. So I took that as an excuse for
walking up to the hospital and back and enjoy the sunshine.
Black Diamond is in the valley and the hospital is up on 
the high prairie. 

I probably would have had an easier time when I was 18,
but I did manage without stopping.

Have FUN!

"In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia." --- Charles A. Lindbergh
An elderly lady, who lived on the third floor of a boardinghouse, broke her leg. As the doctor put a cast on it, he warned her not to climb any stairs. Several months later, the doctor took off the cast. "Can I climb stairs now?" asked the little old lady. "Yes," he replied. "Thank goodness!" she said. "I'm sick and tired of shinnying up and down that stupid drainpipe!"

A Newfie came out West and sme friends took him along for curling. As luck would have it, he won an Ice auger for ice fishing. A lot of beer later, when they got kicked out of the curling club, the Newfie wants to go ice fishing right then and there. It's about as foggy outside as it is in his head, after all those beers, but his keen eyes spot some ice not far away. Proudly carrying his nice, shiny, red auger, he stumbles in that direction and decides that he'll give it a go. He carefully takes the safety cover off the point. You may think thasch easchy, but if you hol yourschelf upright with the schilly Ische auger, every time you pull the plaschtik thingamagig off the bottom point, you fffall down! Musch easier if you doing while lying down. Finally he starts drilling. Suddenly, a loud voice booms out at him, "There's no fish in here." The Newfie looks all around him in the fog, but can't see anyone. He decides to ignore the voice and carries on drilling. Again, the voice booms out, "I've told you, there's no fish in here!" He looks up again but there's still no sign of anyone so he returns to his task. "Stop it!" shouts the now very angry sounding voice, "You'd better pack up your stuff and get out of here or there'll be trouble." "Who are you" shouts the drunk guy, "you don't scare me!" There was a big, thundering roar and the the loud voice again: "I'm the manager of this hockey rink, and I'm starting up the Zamboni!"

Tech Support Pits: From Thomas Re: Inkjet versus laser reliability Dear Webby, I know from some of your posts that you are in favor of laser printers. My experience in offices with laser printers seemed to be that there was always something going wrong with the laser printers. It seems that there is so much more to go wrong with them then with inkjet printers. I am fearful of buying a laser printer and 6 months later being socked with a huge repair bill. Thomas Dear Thomas In the 80's Laser printers did have frequent problems, especially when they were used for cranking through a case or more of paper per week. I know, I used to be the one fixing them. I remember, when the IBM 3180 was the top of the line laser printer, and I was in good enough shape, that I could carry them alone down and up steep and long stairs. However, Lasers have come a long way in the last 25-30 years, and the cute secretaries, who abused them then, are grandmothers and great-grandmothers now. I am using a DELL 1320c color laser, and have for 3-4 years. All I ever do for it is stuff another ream of paper into it, and occasionally change toner cartridges. As long as you stay away from HP, Lasers are quite reliable nowadays. Since with a Laser you get into the Business Class, you get much better quality than at the bargain consumer level. Also keep in mind, withlasers, there is nothing to dry up or leak. They work with dry powder. However, when mine is five years old, I will seriously consider opening it and see if it needs cleaning and lubricating. Have FUN! DearWebby

Bubba and Earl were driving down the road, drinking a couple of bottles of Bud. The passenger, Bubba, said, "Looky thar up ahead, Earl, it's a po-lice roadblock! We're gonna get busted fer drinkin' these here beers!" "Don't worry, Bubba," Earl said. "We'll just pull over and finish drinkin' these beers, peel off the labels, stick them on our foreheads, and throw the bottles under the seat." "What fer?" asked Bubba. "Just let me do the talkin', Okay?' said Earl. They finished their beers, threw the emply bottles under the seat, and each put a label on his forehead. When they reached the roadblock, the sheriff said, "You boys been drinkin'?" "No sir," Earl said. "We're on the patch." "You' look as stupid on your mug shots, as you are, boys. And you'll be walking for a year. Start by walking over to the cruiser."

Pat and Mike were once very good friends. One day when they were still on speaking terms, Pat went over to Mike's house to visit, but when he got there, Mike was out. Mike's wife was holding the ferociously fighting baby who had different plans, and trying to put up curtains at the same time. "Pat," she said, "I'm glad you came. Would you mind holding the squirming nuisance while I finish the curtains?" A few minutes later, Pat came in and said to Mike, "How ya doin, Mike?" Said Mike, "I'm holding my own". That's when the battle started.
