>From Roland A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a $20 bill fell out onto the sidewalk. Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, "Ma'am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag." "Oh, really? Darn it!" said the little old lady. "I'd better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me officer. "Well, now, not so fast," said the cop. " Where did you get all that money? You didn't steal it, did you?" "Oh, no, no", said the old lady. "You see, my back yard is right next to a Golf course. A lot of Golfers come and pee through a knot hole in my fence, right into my flower garden. It used to really tick me off. Kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, 'why not make the best of it?' So, now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, 'O. K., buddy! Give me $20, or off it comes.' "Well, that seems only fair," said the cop, laughing. "OK. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?" "Not everybody pays."

A real-estate agent was driving around with a new trainee when she spotted a charming little farmhouse with a hand- lettered "For Sale" sign out front. After briskly introducing herself and her associate to the startled occupant, the agent cruised from room to room, opening closets and cupboards, testing faucets and pointing out where a "new light fixture here and a little paint there" would help. Pleased with her assertiveness, the woman was hopeful that the owner would offer her the listing. "Ma'am," the man said, "I appreciate the home-improvement tips and all, but I think you read my sign wrong. It says, "HORSE for sale."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ohio court rules living man is legally dead Reported by Walter the Stonecarver A man who turned up alive nearly 20 years after he disappeared has been told he cannot have a driving licence because he is still legally dead. Donald Miller Jr vanished from a town in Ohio in 1986 after he lost his job and turned to alcohol. He was officially declared dead eight years later, only to resurface in 2005. "It kind of went further than I ever expected it to," Mr Miller said. "I just kind of took off and ended up in different places." The 61-year-old went to court to apply for a driving licence and to have his Social Security number reinstated, so that he can work legally and pay taxes. However, his request to reverse the 1994 death ruling was turned down by Judge Allan Davis, who informed him there was a three-year limit for death notices to be repealed. The judge admitted it was a "strange, strange situation". "We've got the obvious here - a man sitting in the courtroom who appears to be in good health," he said. He told Mr Miller: "I don't know where that leaves you, but you're still deceased as far as the law is concerned." Records show that Mr Miller avoided paying taxes and child support for his children. He owes more than $25,000 in arrears. If his death declaration had been reversed, his ex-wife would have been ordered to pay back the benefits she received for her daughters in almost two decades. His then wife remarried in the meantime, to another Mr Miller. Ms Miller said she wasn't being vindictive toward Mr Miller, but, as a nurse who cannot work because of a disability, she could not afford to repay the benefits. That is why her lawyer fought against Donald Miller Jr getting his "Alive" status and Social Security card back.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Antacid Tablets as Calcium Supplement Many of us are calcium deficient. Calcium supplements are widely available, but very expensive. Here's an inexpensive tip: Antacid products. The chewable antacids are calcium rich. The labels indicate that the product may be used as a calcium supplement and give dosage instructions for that. Large bottles of tasty, fruit flavored antacids save more than 50% in cost over the "calcium supplements" being sold with the same value of calcium. By Arthur Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
Thanks to Dianne for this story and picture: To my darling husband Before you return from your overseas trip I just want to let you know about the small accident I had with the pick up truck when I turned into the driveway. Fortunately not too bad and I really didn't get hurt, so please don't worry too much about me. I was coming home from Wal-Mart, and when I turned into the driveway I accidentally pushed down on the accelerator instead of the brake. The garage door is slightly bent but the pick up fortunately came to a halt when it bumped into your car. Don't worry, it didn't touch your bike. I am really sorry but I know with your kind hearted personality you will forgive me. You know how much I love you and care for you my sweet heart. I cannot wait to hold you in my arms again. Your loving wife. XXX PS.: Your secretary is pregnant.
