Good Morning,  !
Today is Wednesday, November 16

On today's walk I sure would have appreciated a bit of 
Gullible Warming. Walking against an icy wind coming 
up from Montana was not comfortable at all. I was seriously
considering checking into the cost of one of those ski masks
worn by bank robbers. 

What is funny, I spent 30 years in the arctic, rode a few 
thousand miles on dog sleds, but never wore one of those
face masks. 
Maybe I should again stop trimming my beard and mustache?

Have FUN!

Thanks to Sandie for sending this: Dearest Redneck Daughter, I'm writing this slow because I know you can't read fast. We don't live where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles of your home, so we moved. I won't be able to send you the address because the last family that lived here took the house numbers when they moved so they wouldn't have to change their address. This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine. I'm not too sure about it. I put a load of clothes in and pulled the chain. We haven't seen them since. The weather isn't bad here. It only rained twice last week; the first time for three days and the second time for four days. About that coat you wanted me to send; your Uncle Billy Bob said it would be too heavy to send in the mail with the buttons on, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets. Bubba locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried and hot because it took him two hours to get me and your father out. Your sister had a baby this morning, but I haven't found out what it is yet so I don't know if you are an aunt or uncle. The baby looks just like your brother. Uncle Bobby Ray fell into a whiskey vat last week. Some men tried to pull him out but he fought them off and drowned. We had him cremated, he burned for three days. Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pickup truck. Butch was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your other two friends were in the back. They drowned because they couldn't get the tailgate down. There isn't much more news at this time. Nothing much out of the normal has happened. Your Favorite Aunt, Mom

Thanks to Lillemor for this story: A balding, white haired man from Ft. Lauderdale in Florida , walked into a jewelry store this past Friday evening with a beautiful much younger gal at his side. He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend. The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring. The man said, 'No, I'd like to see something more special.' At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. 'Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000 the jeweler said. The lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. The old man seeing this said, 'We'll take it.' The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the man stated, 'by check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon.' On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man and said 'There's no money in that account.' 'I know,' said the old man, 'But let me tell you about MY GREAT WEEKEND!'

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Ashley Sedalia Haithcock, 26 in Salisbury, NC Drunk again and out of control ROCKWELL — An intoxicated China Grove woman broke into a Rockwell home Friday night, raided a cookie jar and fell asleep in the homeowner’s bed, authorities say. A Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report said Martha Birtch called the authorities when she found 26-year-old Ashley Sedalia Haithcock in her bed at 2005 Green Field Lane at about 10 p.m. The report said Birtch noticed the sliding glass door was open and a cookie jar inside the home was broken. When Birtch walked inside, she heard a woman’s voice and found Haithcock in her bed, under the covers. Haithcock, 328 Maple Ridge Circle, had gone missing about 7:30 p.m. when her grandfather Arnold called 911. Arnold told officers that Haithcock had been staying with him for the weekend, but got upset Friday night when he prohibited her from drinking. Arnold said he found her drinking wine in the home and said she has a drinking problem, the report said. Authorities said Haithcock disappeared from the 104 Sage Lane home after becoming upset with her grandfather. Deputies could not find the woman and calls to her cell phone went unanswered. As officers traveled to the Birtches’ residence to take Haithcock into custody, the woman became aggressive and began arguing with Birtch and her daughter.The report said Birtch’s daughter was assaulted by Haithcock in the incident. After being taken into custody, Haithcock continued being uncooperative, the report said, and kicked three deputies as they attempted to speak with her. She was charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering, misdemeanor simple assault, misdemeanor assault on a law enforcement officer and misdemeanor injury to personal property. Haithcock was given a $10,000 bond and was in jail on Monday.
Tech Support Pits: From Gerry Re: Phoney PayPal mails Dear Webby I know you mentioned phoney PayPal letters a few times, but I never paid attention because then I didn't have a paypal account. Now I do and today I got an email that looks like it is from Paypal and that asks me to verify details about my account. But it was sent to my other address, not the one I use for PayPal. What's the proper procedure? Gerry Dear Gerry PayPal NEVER asks you to submit any information via email. NEVER click on any links in mails pretending to be from PayPal. If you have MailWasher, then you can see in the preview details that underneath what looks like a link to PayPal, the link actually goes to some number domain. With some email programs you can see those numbers in the status line when you hover the mouse over the link. Real PayPal mail never has links except to https://www.paypal.com They just tell you to log in normally and go to this or that department. If you get phoney PayPal mails, expose the header and forward the mail to spoof@paypal.com Have FUN! DearWebby

An elderly Italian man asked the local priest to hear his confession. "Father, during World War II a beautiful woman knocked on my door and asked me to hide her from the Germans. I hid her in my attic." The priest replied: "That was a wonderful thing you did, my son, and you have no need to confess." "It's worse, Father. I was weak and told her she must repay me with her sexual favours." "You were both in great danger and would have suffered terribly if the Germans had found her. Heaven, in its wisdom and mercy, will balance the good and evil, and judge you kindly. You are forgiven." "Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind. But I have one more question." "And what is that?" "Should I tell her the war is over?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cut Triangle in Foil Seal on Coffee Cans I have found that coffee cans now have a foil seal under the lid. If you cut a triangle in the foil from the middle to the outside, the coffee grounds don't spill all over when you pour them. Don't cut the triangle too wide.

Thanks to David for this one: An older Jewish gentleman was on the operating table awaiting surgery and he insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he was about to get the anesthesia he asked to speak to his son. "Yes, Dad, what is it?" "Don't be nervous, son; do your best and just remember, if it doesn't go well, if something happens to me ... your mother is going to come and live with you and your wife."
