I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant. --- Robert McCloskey
One day, Gramma sent her grandson, Little Johnny, down to the water hole to get some water for cooking dinner. As he was dipping the bucket in, he saw two big eyes looking back at him. He dropped the bucket and ran all the way back to Gramma's house and into the kitchen. "Well now, where's my bucket and where's my water?" Gramma asked him. A frightened Little Johnny stammered, "I can't get any water from that water hole, Gramma. There's a BIG old alligator down there!" Gramma said, "Now, don't you mind that ole' alligator, Johnny. He's been there for a few years now, and he's never hurt no one. Why, he's probably as scared of you as you are of him." "Well, Gramma," replied Johnny, "if he's as scared of me as I am of him, then that water ain't fit to drink!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Stephanie Clinkenbeard, 33 Stephanie Clinkenbeard Had A Meth Lab In Her Pants Tahlequah, OK: Stephanie Clinkenbeard, a 33-year-old Oklahoma woman was jailed after deputies discovered a meth lab in her pants. According to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, deputies were looking for Clinkenbeard after she was reported to be the driver of a vehicle that was reported stolen. Deputies discovered the stolen car and made contact with Clinkenbeard who was walking down a nearby road. When confronted by the deputy, Clinkenbeard stretched out her arms to be handcuffed - stating that she knew she had kept her boss's car too long. Clinkenbeard then allegedly told the deputy that she had drug paraphernalia in her purse and a bottle stashed in her pants. Moments later she admitted to the deputy that the bottle in her pants was a "shake-and-bake" meth lab. After removing the "one bottle" meth lab from her pants, she proceeded to remove other drug related items from her clothing. The items included a baggie containing a white powdery substance, several syringes, coffee filters and a glass pipe. She was booked into jail and charged with manufacturing a controlled dangerous substance, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and intent to manufacture.
Tech Support Pits: From: Amanda Re: Descriptive picture names Dear Webby I was told to use decriptive names for pictures instead of just numbers, but now they don't show up any more. They show OK on my computer, but not on the web. Amanda Dear Amanda When the web was invented, it was decided that names have NO spaces in them. Then the Mac people gave in to Arab influence and allowed spaces in file names. A few years later Microsoft got paranoid about the Mac having something that Microsoft didn't have, and without thinking about it, followed suit. Well, the people in charge of the web thought and still think that spaces within names are stooopid and just a silly nuisance on the web. They really are, and they slow down browsing, because when the message comes back that there is no such file (with just the first portion), then some browsers add "%20", a space filler, and send another request out. If you have half a dozen words in your "descriptive file name", that wastes a lot of time. Just fill the gaps with underscores or the minus sign, and the files will show properly on all browsers. Have FUN! DearWebby

At the end of their first date, a young man takes the girl back to her home. Emboldened by the night, he decides to try for that important first kiss. With an air of confidence, he leans with his hand against the wall and, smiling, he says to her, "Darling, how 'bout a good night kiss?" Embarrassed, she replies, "Oh, I couldn't do that. My parents will see us!" "Oh come on! Who's gonna see us at this hour?" "No, please. I would just die of embarrassment if someone saw us." "Oh come on, there's nobody around, they're all sleeping!" "No way. It's just too risky!" "Oh please, please, I like you so much!!" "No. I like you too, but I just can't!" "Oh yes you can. Please?" "NO, no. I just can't." "Pleeeeease?..." Out of the blue, the porch light goes on, and the girl's sister shows up in her pajamas, hair disheveled. In a sleepy voice the sister says: "Dad says to go ahead and give him a kiss. Or I can do it. Or if need be, he'll come down himself and do it. But for crying out loud tell the idiot to take his hand off the intercom button!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Organizing Business Cards I like taking calling cards, especially from stores like beauty salons, doctors office, even restaurants. I did not know where to store them. I bought a wallet size photo album from a dollar store ($1) and started putting all the cards I have taken in there. At the back of the calling cards, I note down comments like the hours and days for my favorite hairstylist or for restaurants favorite menus and what not to order (good for take outs). By Rosario from FL I remember when business card scanners came out in the 80s, with simple database programs to sort and store them. They are stil available, a huge choice from $30 to $300. However, the cheapest scanner will do for business cards. After scanning them at low resolution and saving the picture, it can be pasted into any spreadsheet with CTRL V Yep, it is that simple! You can leave it at original size or squish it. Then you can type the name of the business into the first column, with the pictrue in the second one, and comments in the third one. With a spreadsheet CTRL F is for Finding stuff. You can limit the search to only the search to only the first column by putting the cursor above it, or let it search the entire sheet. If you want, you can even put detailed "pages" behind the first sheet, and drill down to them with a click. For example, if you have warranty issues with a company, you might want to record all kinds of extra info. One double-click from the top layer with the pretty business cards will drill down to the detail page. If you have never used spreadsheets before, you'll feel like a kid in a toy store the first few times you play with them. Have FUN!

Alabama's worst air disaster occurred when a small two-seater Cessna 150 plane, piloted by two University of Alabama students, crashed into a cemetery earlier today. Search and rescue workers have recovered 300 bodies so far and expect the number to climb as digging continues into the evening. The pilot and copilot survived and are helping in the recovery efforts.

A young Jewish man excitedly tells his mother he's fallen in love and that he is going to get married. He says, "Just for fun, Ma, I'm going to bring over three women and you try and guess which one I'm going to marry." The mother agrees. The next day, he brings three beautiful women into the house and sits them down on the couch and they chat for a while. He then says, "Okay, Ma, guess which one I'm going to marry." She immediately replies, "The one on the right." "That's amazing, Ma. You're right. How did you know?" The Jewish mother replies, "I don't like her."
