Your wheels: Thanks to Tess for this picture: Oh, I loved this car. Wish I hadn't sold it, but I got a call the other day from the 4th owner, who says it is still wonderful and filled me in on some of the work he's doing on it. It was bought in Texas, lived in Virginia and (I think) Ohio, and is now in the Colorado Rockies. Tess

Wine makes a man more pleased with himself; I do not say that it makes him more pleasing to others. ---Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784) Too bad the only people who know how to run the country are busy driving cabs and cutting hair. --- George Burns

A married couple, trying to live up to a snobbish life-style went to a party. The conversation turned to Mozart. "Absolutely brilliant, magnificent, a genius!" The woman, wanting to join in the conversation, remarked casually, "Ah, Mozart. You're so right. I love him. Only this morning I saw him getting on the number five bus going to Coney Island." There was a sudden hush, and everyone looked at her. Her husband was mortified. He pulled her away and whispered, "We're leaving right now. Get your coat and let's get our of here." As they drove home, he kept muttering to himself. Finally, his wife turned to him and said, "You're angry about something." "Oh really? You noticed?" he sneered. "I've never been so embarrassed in my life! You saw Mozart take the number five bus to Coney Island? How could you say that? Everyone knows the number five bus doesn't go to Coney Island !"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Karen Vaughan, Cook County,Illinois Claiming that Pensioners picking dandylions are commiting a CRIME Reported by Walter, the StoneCarver Karen Vaughan, spokeswoman for the Cook County Forest Preserve District, said foraging is prohibited. About a pensioner picking a shopping bag full of dandylion leaves from amongst the weeds in an unmowed triangle behind a fence: "It's unsustainable," she said. "Quite simply, we could see some of these plants disappear over time. It can also have negative impacts on the natural plant and animal communities we're trying to preserve for the public." You'd think the district's yearly budget of almost $200 million would be better spent on catching the body dumpers and the weirdos rather than harassing a few old people holding fast to old ways. Europeans, esppecially Greeks, Italians and Spaniards, have always used dadndylion leaves for food, and rarely bought them in the store. They usually send the kids to the nearest lawn and delight the owner of that lawn by picking what he considers a nuisance weed. With so much crime in the Chicago area, from murderous gangbangers to those thug mobs and everything in between, the Cook County Gestapo is now focusing on easier targets: Senior Citizen Dandylion Pickers. One example is John Taris, 75, retired tailor and notoriosus dandylion picker. He was find $75 and now has a criminal record. And Karen Vaughan claims publicly, that "foraging" is a serious crime and has to be eradicated. Amazing, that is what your taxes pay for! I got dandylions in my lawn. If anybody wants them, pick them! I have rhubarb too. It is delicious with a bit of honey. Go ahead and pick some! Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: Alternative to the obnoxious Yahoo Home Page Dear Webby, I have been using yahoo for years for a home page, but I am really getting sick of their editorial policy - is there someplace else that I could use that's not as obnoxious? - but is also easy to use - Bill Dear Bill My home page started out as an alternative to home pages like that. That was in the early 90's. Just go to http://webby.com/humor and make that your default home page. On the riht side, a the top of the side menu, is a Google search field. It will not secretly change to some other search engine. Below that are handy links. If there are any sites, that you often go to, that should be listed on the side menu, just tell me. It works just fine as a home page, especially when you want to back out of something nasty. Just hit HOME, and you are back on the familiar Humor letter. And unlike the socialist yahoos at Yahoo, I listen to people, and if you suggest a link, I will add it. Have FUN! DearWebby

A butcher, who had had a particularly good day, proudly flipped his last chicken on a scale and weighed it. "That will be $6.35," he told the customer. "That's a good price, but it really is a little too small," said the woman. "Don't you have anything larger?" Hesitating, but thinking fast, the clerk returned the chicken to the refrigerator, paused a moment, then took it out again. "This one," he said faintly, " will be $6.65." The woman paused for a moment, then made her decision... "You know what," she said, "I'll take both of them!"
