Being a woman is a terribly difficult task since it consists principally in dealing with men. --- Joseph Conrad (1857 - 1924) A proverb is a short sentence based on long experience. --- Miguel de Cervantes ______________________________________________________ At long last the good-humored boss was compelled to call Fisk into his office. "It has not escaped my attention," he pointed out, "that every time there's a home game at the stadium you have to take your aunt to the doctor." "You know you're right, sir," exclaimed Fisk. "I didn't realize it. You don't suppose she's faking it, do you?" ______________________________________________________ A woman goes to the local psychic in hopes of contacting her dearly departed grandmother. The psychic's eyelids begin fluttering, her hands float up above the table, and she begins moaning. Eventually, a coherent voice emanates saying, "Granddaughter? Are you there?" The woman, wide-eyed and on the edge of her seat, responds, "Grandmother? Is that you?" "Yes granddaughter, it's me." "It's really, really you, grandmother?", the woman repeats. "Yes, it's really me, granddaughter." The woman looks puzzled, "You're sure it's you, grandmother?" "Yes, granddaughter, I'm sure it's me." The woman pauses a moment, "Grandmother, I have just one question for you." "Anything, my child." "Grandmother, when did you learn to speak English?" ______________________________________________________ >From Dora We had built our dream house several years ago, and furnished it with quality pieces as we could afford them. Now the delivery truck carrying the last purchase, a new bedroom suite, was pulling into the driveway. "Finally!" I exclaimed, flinging open the front door as the driver walked up to the house. "I've been waiting twelve years for this!" "Don't blame me, lady," he said. "I just got the order this morning." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Dawn for this picture Click through for the large picture Georgia ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Michael Valentin, Attempted Double Homicide After Dog-Poop Dispute in Massachusetts A dispute between neighbors about a dog's bodily waste in Springfield, Massachusetts, has resulted in a tenant being charged with felony assault and attempted murder. Michael Valentin, 33, was arrested Saturday for allegedly stabbing a 46-year-old woman and her 23-year-old daughter. Police said the attacks stemmed from an argument between Valentin and the victims about their pit bull, which Valentin said had defecated on the rear stairs and in the side yard, MassLive reports. The deputies first showed up at the apartment building around 9:30 a.m. and sought to resolve the problem with the help of the landlord. After they left, Valentin allegedly erupted into violence by attacking his second floor neighbors. The mother was stabbed several times in the back while the daughter was stabbed in the face and neck. The mother was taken to the hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening, and has been upgraded from critical to stable condition, according to WTNH.com. The daughter is reportedly in good condition. Valentin was arrested and charged with armed assault with intent to murder, mayhem as well as assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to the Associated Press. Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Return Key Dear Webby! Dear Webby, I keep seeing soemthing that says to use the "return" key to get back to something previoulsy viewed. What is the retuen key? I susally use the back arrow button on the taskbar. Just curious. Thanks again. Sharon Dear Sharon With electric typewriters, that's the Carriage Return key that looks like the Enter key on a computer keyboard. Some silly bozos call the BackSpace key a "Return key". That is usually due to too much booze and/or dope and not remembering that the phrase is supposed to be: To return to the previous page, hit the Backspace key. By the way, in the really old days, before electric typewriters, you had to slap the carriage to return it to the right. That led to a few hilarious moments when typists switched to Wang Word Processors, IBM DisplayWrite or PCs, as you can see in this movie. Return! Have FUN! DearWebby

A woman went to her doctor's office where she was seen by a young new doctor. After about four minutes in the examination room, the doctor told her she was pregnant. She burst out screaming and ran down the hallway. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was. She told him her story. After listening, he had her sit down and relax in another room. The doctor marched down the hallway to the first doctor and demanded: "What's the matter with you? Mrs. Smith is 59 years old, has four grown children, seven grandchildren and you told her she was pregnant?!?! The new doctor continued writing on his clipboard and without looking up said, "Does she still have the hiccups?"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Egg Crates for Veggie Storage Use egg crates as a base for vegetables. If a veggie becomes "weepy" before you can use it, it won't drip onto the others. Cut the crates to fit your basket or shelf. Extra: Because you can ripen tomatoes in a brown paper bag, the cardboard crates are great for green tomatoes.

One says, “Did you know that lions have sex 10 to 15 times a night?” “Dang,” says his friend, “and I just joined The Elks!!” ______________________________________________________ A doctor and a lawyer were talking at a party. Their conversation was constantly interrupted by people describing their ailments and asking the doctor for free medical advice. After an hour of this, the exasperated doctor asked the lawyer, "What do you do to stop people from asking you for legal advice when you're out of the office?" "I give it to them," replied the lawyer, "and then I send them a bill, at after hours, over-time rate." The doctor was shocked, but agreed to give it a try. The next day, still feeling slightly guilty, the doctor prepared the bills. When he went to place them in his mailbox, he found a bill from the lawyer.
