WWII War Memorial Gestapo is no match for WWII veterans!

Just to be ornery, the WWII War Memorial was closed by the
Government and heavily armed park Gestapo was trying to keep
visitors out.  

The four bus loads of veterans — visiting from Mississippi 
as part of a once-in-a-lifetime Honor Flight tour — ignored 
National Park Gestapo instructions not to enter the site as 
lawmakers and tourists cheered them on.

“We didn’t come this far not to get in,” one veteran 

The veterans figured the WWII War Memorial belonged to them, 
not to the potbellied goons with guns and batons and tasers.
And just like they won WWII, they won the fight for the 

As Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, distracted the Park Police, other 
lawmakers and their staff helped topple the metal fences. A 
bagpiper on hand for the event led the veterans past the 
crowd and into the heart of the memorial, attracting a lot
of applause from the large crowd.

“This just means so much to me,” said Alex “Lou” Pitalo, an 
Army vet who served in the Pacific during WWII. “I waited 
70 years to get a welcome like this. And to get to see this 
and to have all those people clapping … I’m just so happy. 
This was amazing.”

To be ornery and spiteful the Government has closed other 
memorial sites too, as if they were property of the 

I have a hunch, we will hear more about this!

Just in:
House Republicans were not able to push through 3 measures 
that would have reopened the national parks, and funded 
veterans programs while the federal government is shut down.
The Democrats in the Senate, just to be an ornery and spiteful
nuisance, vetoed that. Obama also announced, that he would
veto it, if it passed.

We know he doesn't like the military, and apparently he does
not like veterans either.

On Thursday, october 3, I am due for more injections into
my eyeballs. That means no newsletters on Friday, Saturday 
and Sunday.

Have FUN!

Statistics: The only science that enables different experts using the same figures to draw different conclusions. --- Evan Esar (1899 - 1995),
Thanks to Allen for this story: Before our daughter went off to college, our family took a vacation in Colorado. So we flew to Denver and rented a car. We visited the Royal Gorge Bridge, which is more than 1000 feet above the Arkansas River. Walking out onto the bridge, I noticed it swaying in the wind. Then a car went past us, and the wood-plank roadway moved beneath my feet. "I don't think I want to drive the car across this bridge," I finally said. "What are you worried about?" our daughter replied. "It's a rental."

A guy came home to his wife and said to her: "Guess what? I've found a great job. A 10 am start, 2 pm finish, no over- time, no weekends and it pays $600 a week!" "That's great," his wife said. "Yeah, I thought so too," he agreed. "You start Monday."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jayne Rand, 48, of Swindon, England Jailed for shoplifting 905 handbags Reported by Sun Metro Tech Support Pits From: Judy Re: Comcast Hi Webby. I hope you can help me with internet connection problem. I'm connect to cabel,but there are time when I have low power and I cannot connect to the internet. It will be off for several hour and sometime longer.This has happen many times. They have changed the cabel modem box and a connection outside. When The repair man test my computer every thing is o.k.. Comcast has decided the problem is with the outside cabel. Hope you can help or tell me where I can go for help. Judy Dear Judy There is nothing you can do on your end about poor cable quality somewhere between your house and the station. Comcast probably does not even own the cable, but just piggybacks on a local cable company's cable. Theoretically they could raise a fuss with the local cable company, but usually they can't be bothered. Switching to a different provider piggybacking on the same cable probably would not make any difference. Switching to DSL, if it is available in your area, would generally give you more reliability, but a bit less speed. In the meantime, all you can do is yell at Comcast and hope they will get the local cable company to fix the problem. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Careful With Goo Gone on Leather I bought a pair of Lilly Pulitzer sandals that had sticker residue on the leather insoles. I used Goo Gone and it removed the gold lettering also and also left a blotched area. I have used Goo Gone in the past with great success, but I would not recommend using it on leather.

One day our little niece Rita, went up to her mother and asked, "Mom, where did I come from?" My sister in law stammered a bit, but finally got her composure. She thought it was time her daughter knew the facts of life. So, she told Little Rita how the expression of love resulted in the beginning of life, how life developed in the womb and finally how a child was born. As my sister in law gave the whole story, Rita's eyes got wider and wider. When She was finished, Little Rita said "Wow, that's really neat. That's sure better than what Uncle Rusty told me. He said that he came from Toronto."

Here is a good old classic: This Irish guy shows up in a pub one day and orders three pints of Guinness. He takes sips from each glass until they are empty and calls the bartender for three more. The bartender says, "Hey, pal, I don't mind bringing one at a time, then they'll be fresh and cold." "Nah... ahm preferrin' that ya bring 'em three at a time. You see, me and me two brothers would meet at a pub and drink and have good times. Now one is in Australia, the other in Canada and I'm here. We agreed before we split up that we'd drink this way to each other's honor." "Well," says the bartender, "that's a damn good sentimental thing to do. I'll bring the pints as you ask." Well, time goes on and the Irishman's peculiar habit is known and accepted by all the pub regulars. One day, the Irishman comes in and orders only two pints. A hush falls over the pub. Naturally, everyone figures something happened to one of the brothers. A bunch of the regulars corner the bartender and finally persuade him to find out what happened. With a heavy heart, the bartender brings the two pints and says, "Here's your pints... and let me offer my sincerest condolences. What happened?" The Irishman looks extremely puzzled for a moment. When the light comes on in his head, he starts laughing. "No, no! 'Tis nothing like that. You see, I've gotten married and promised to give up drinking. Hasn't affected my brothers, though."
