able to write the Sunday issue.

If all the world's a stage, I want to operate the trap door. --- Paul Beatty I can believe anything, provided that it is quite incredible. --- Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900),
Thanks to Russ for this classic: Joe was moderately successful in his career, but as he got older, he was increasingly hampered by incredible headaches. When his personal hygiene and love life started to suffer, he sought medical help. After being referred from one specialist to another, he finally came across a doctor who solved his problem. "The good news is I can cure your headaches. The bad news is that it will require castration. You have a very rare condition which causes your testicles to press up against the base of your spine. The pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles." Joe was shocked and depressed.....but decided he had no choice but to go under the knife. When he left the hospital, his mind was clear, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself. As he walked down the street, he realized that he felt like a different person. He could make a new beginning and live a new life. He walked past a men's clothing store and thought "That's what I need, a new suit." He entered the shop and told the salesman "I'd like a new suit." The salesman eyed him briefly and said "Let's see....44 long." Joe laughed "That's right. How did you know?” The salesman replied “It's my job." Joe tried on the suit. It fit perfectly. As Joe admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked "How about a new shirt?" Joe thought for a moment and then said "Sure." The salesman eyed Joe and said "Let's see.....34 sleeve and.... 16½ neck." Joe was surprised. "That's right. How did you know?" The salesman replied "It's my job." Joe tried on the shirt, and it fit perfectly. As Joe adjusted the collar in the mirror, the salesman asked "How about new shoes?" Joe was on a roll and said "Sure." The salesman eyed Joe's feet and said "Lets see.... 9 1/2 wide." Joe was astonished. "That's right. How did you know?" "It's my job" was the answer. Joe tried on the shoes, and they fit perfectly. Joe walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, "How about a new hat?" Without hesitating Joe said "Sure." The salesman eyed Joe's head and said "Lets see.....7 3/4" Joe was incredulous. "That's right!" How did you know?" "It's my job." The hat fit perfectly. Joe was feeling great when the salesman asked "How about some new underwear?" Joe thought for a second and said "Sure." The salesman stepped back, eyed Joe's waist and said "Let's see....size 36." Joe laughed "No, I've worn size 34 since I was 18 years old." The salesman shook his head. "You can't wear a size 34. It would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache."

While we are having fun with Classics, Roland sent this one: Boudreaux was feeling guilty, so he went to confession. "Father, I kinda took a little lumber from that new construction site." Priest: "What did you do with the lumber, my son?" Boudreaux: "Well, Father, my porch, she's had a hole for a long time. I'm 'fraid someone will break their leg, so I fix the hole." Priest: "Well, that's not so bad." Boudreaux: "Well, Father, I had a little lumber left." Priest: "What did you do with it?" Boudreaux: "Well, my poor dog, Phideaux, he ain't never had no place to get outta the weather, so I make him his own little doghouse." Priest: "OK, anything else?" Boudreaux: "Well, Father, I had a little lumber left. So you know, my truck, she ain't never had no place to get outta de weather either, so I make her a two-car garage." Priest: "Now, this is getting a little out of hand." Boudreaux: "Well, Father, I still had a little lumber left." Priest: "Yes?" Boudreaux: "Well, my wife, she always want a bigger house. So I add two bedrooms and a new bathroom." Priest: "OK! That's definitely too much. For your penance, you are going to have to make a Novena. You do know how to make a Novena, don't you?" Boudreaux: "No, Father ... but if you got the plans, I got the lumber."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Depree Johnson, 19, Lake Worth, Floriduh Felon posted pictures of himself with burglared guns A Florida felon is back in jail after uploading photos to his Instagram page showing him posing with firearms. Police raided Depree Johnson’s Lake Worth home last week after investigators spotted the incriminating images of the 19-year-old on the photo-sharing web site. Johnson’s rap sheet includes convictions for grand theft, burglary, and felon in possession of a firearm. As seen above, one of the Instagram photos shows Johnson holding two handguns. Detectives with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office recently examined Johnson’s Instagram account as they were investigating his possible involvement in a series of burglaries. The search of Johnson’s home turned up numerous pieces of stolen jewelry and a pair of stolen firearms. As a result, Johnson was arrested and booked into the county jail on 142 criminal counts. Tech Support Pits From: Jaye Re: IE opening in too small size windows Dear Webby: I made 4 links one quarter there size--- Had all four show on my desktop at once--- was neat--- except now--- almost every thing I open--- opens to one quarter its size and I have to click maximize. You had a tech tip once that dealt with just that problem--- did not need it so I deleted it- Webby, where I go to click open all windows in full screen?? Thanks so much for all your help. Jaye Dear Jaye Close all browser windows but one. Open a new window from a link on the remaining window. Close the old window (not the new one that just opened up). Adjust the window to be the size you want all the new windows to be (you cannot use the maximize button for this, you have to actually squish or stretch the size of the window to be what you want the windows to automatically open up as). Hold down the CTRL key while closing the window. From now on, all your new windows should open up to that size until perform a similar process telling IE that you want all new windows to be the new size. Most likely what occurred is that you manually sized a window to that size, closed it, and IE remembered that as your preferred window size. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Tennis Ball for Pulling Into the Garage Take a ping ping ball and pierce a hole in it on each side (2 holes). Thread a string through it and tie in your garage against the car windshield to the exact place where you need to pull in the garage for a perfect fit. No more hitting the garage back or closing the door on your car! Source: My father in law! By Rae G. You can tie anything to the string. At one time it used to be fashionale to tie a little yellow duck squeaky toy to the string. Anything works. I have seen even beer bottles, to make an audible CLICK on the windshield. That is handy in dark garages, especially when you turn your lights off early, to ensure a better charge of the battery. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
>From Frannie Our pastor was winding down the service. In the back of the church, the fellowship committee stood to go to the church hall and prepare snacks for the congregation. Seeing them rise, Pastor Michael singled them out for praise. "Before they all slip out," he urged, "let's give these ladies a big hand in the rear."

A man parked his car at the supermarket and was walking past a row of empty shopping carts when the cart-girl standing there called after him, "Excuse me, did you want that cart?" "No," he answered. "I'm only after one thing." As he walked into the store, he heard her say, "Typical male!"
Thanks tp Russ for bringing back this classic: Little Jenny answered the door when the census taker came by. "My daddy is a doctor and he isn't home because he's performing an appendectomy." "My," said the census taker, "that sure is a big word for such a little girl. Do you know what appendectomy means?" "Oh, sure: Twenty-five-hundred bucks straight up. Of course, that doesn't include the anesthesiologist!"
