ThriftyFun Difficult to print 



Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, June 30.

Now that most of the snow, that had remained on the mountains
a lot longer than during the years of the Warming Ripple, has
been melted by a warm summer rain, and has torn off the 
vegetation and trees and shrubs and 30 years of accumulated 
mud from the sides of the river, the Sheep River here has 
settled down to a cute little brook. 

On tonight's walk I hiked where there was a torrent of mud 
and uprooted young forest roiling and boiling last week. 
The river pretty well tore it's banks back to where they 
were during the previous Cool Ripple. 
Remember Carl Sagan and his 
'Ice Age Is Coming because of your gas guzzling muscle cars!'?
He spouted that nonsense at the end of the last cool ripple,
just like Al Gore blathered to the sheeple about Gullible
Warming at the end of the warm ripple. 

The #7 highway bridge is getting to be quite old, and when
a log jam of trees and bushes plugged it up, it got jostled 
and moved a bit. To open the #7 and buy time for the Dept of
Highways to allocate funds for a new bridge, they are now
putting three culverts in and covering them with dirt for a
temporary road.

That seems scary when considering the late snow-melt flood,
but is actually quite generous considering the small amount
of water, that is now actually flowing. I spotted various
places along the river, where I could cross it without 
getting my shins wet. They will fix or replace the bridge
long before they have to tear those culverts and dirt
out to make room for the next snow melt.

Yes, snow melt is going to be late for the next 30 years 
or so, but now that the river beds have been cleaned and
widened, there won't be mud and forests coming down.

Well, Carl Sagan did not influence my choice of cars,
and neither did Al Gore.

Have FUN!

Your wheels: Thanks to Donnie for these pictures: I got these photos last week. I would love to have one! Donnie A 1957,1958 and 1959 Chevy all rolled into one! This car was built by N2A motors (No 2 Alike). The company is planning a production run of about 100 vehicles. It sits on a Corvette C6 chassis, front styled like a 57 Chevy, Side like a 58, rear like a 59. Hence the designation "789."
Send me pictures of YOUR wheels, or dream wheels! Have FUN! DearWebby

Barbie, a waitress, decided to put her matchmaking skills to the test with our mutual friend Mike. She figured that Sandy, another friend who seemed to have much in common with Mike, would be an ideal date. One day Mike came into the restaurant when Sandy was also there. Barbie dragged Mike over to Sandy's table and introduced the two. Then she watched as Mike put his arm around the young woman and said in his best mock-seductive voice, "Helloooou, Sandy," whereupon Sandy broke up in roaring laughter. "You guys know each other?" Barbie asked. "We sure do," said Mike. "She's my sister."

Tech Support Pits From: George Re: Thrifty Fun difficult to print Dear Webby, Some of the information that comes up in Thrifty Fun is so wonderful for me that I need to copy it for my information binder. However, I highlight it and put it to print, but find that many of the words in the right margin come out missing, or I only get part words. Can I do anything that will prevent this from occurring? George Dear George That is a HoeMail "feature". You can try shrinking the page by holding down the CTRL key and rolling the scroll wheel on the mouse. It might help. I word-wrap the parts, that I feature, at 60 characters max, to avoid that well known HoeMail problem, but there is nothing I can do about the rest of the ThriftyFun site. You can highlight, what you want to print, hit CTRL C to copy it, jump to a word processor or text editor, hit CTRL V to paste it. Then you have full control over sizes and fonts, and can print it the way you want it. You can also save it as a file. That saves paper and ink, and you can search for it. Simply save it with a descriptive name, and put all those Thrifty Tips into a folder, that you make for them. Have FUN! DearWebby

Harry was describing a 30 pound bass he'd caught recently after fighting it for three hours. Bill interrupted the story saying, "I saw the picture you took of that fish. You're lucky if it even weighed 10 pounds." Harry replied, "Well . . . a fish can lose an awful lot of weight during three hours of fighting." ----------------- This one didn't. Moe is not saying where he caught it.

> From Ed An effusive client brought a litter of golden-retriever puppies to my veterinary clinic for inoculations and worming. She loved them so much, she couldn't keep from remarking about their cute habits. As the look-alike pups squirmed over and under one another in their box, I realized it would be difficult to tell the treated ones from the rest. I turned on the water faucet, wet my fingers, and moistened each dog's head when I had finished. After the fourth puppy, I noticed my hitherto talkative client had grown silent. As I sprinkled the last pup's head, the woman leaned forward and whispered, "I never realized they had to be baptized."
