Good Morning, ,
Today is Monday, December 1

Thursday, December 4, I have to go to Calgary for 
injections into my eyeballs. That means no newsletters
for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Some southerners asked
What is "noisy snow when walking" ?

When the temperatures are below about -25, then walking
in tracks or on packed snow produces a creaking sound 
like a barn door, that has not been oiled for twenty years.

"Florida teena..." Was that a typo, or a new way to mention
a female teen?"

Sorry, just a typo for now. However, it just might catch on!

Have FUN!
DearWebby

Graduation day finally came and son returned home. A big party was held where all the neighbours from miles were invited. When all guests settled down with a few shots of corn whiskey, the father called for everyoneā€™s attention. He reminded everyone present of all the sacrifices he had made for so many years so he could educate his only son. He then introduced his boy as the most educated fellow in them thar hills. Father said : Cmon son, say something real clever to these folks. ¯ The shy young boy was embarrassed to tears and had no idea what to say. So he said first thing that came to mind Pi R Square¯. For you old folks that's forgot that's the area of a circle. The old man flipped a biscuit "You mean to tell me that I wasted all that money sending you to school an yah learnt nothing.?

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Regina Shaw 45 San Antonio, Texas Woman arrested for $6400 sausage heist A Texas woman was arrested yesterday for stealing more than $6400 worth of sausage from the Kiolbassa Provision Company, a San Antonio firm that has been smoking meat since 1949. According to an arrest affidavit, Regina Shaw, 45, was linked to the September 14 theft via surveillance footage that recorded her taking a “pallet of meat product” from the purveyor. Shaw, who worked for the firm, was charged with felony theft and booked into the Bexar County jail. She was subsequently released on $5000 bond. As detailed by a San Antonio Police Department detective, Shaw allegedly fenced a portion of the meat through a man who “purchased some boxes of Kiolbassa sausage” from her. The man later accepted “more Kiolbassa” in payment for a loan that he had given Shaw. During a police photo lineup last month, the man, identified as Peter Medellin, picked out Shaw “as the female that he purchased the meat product from.” The police affidavit does not list the total weight of the purloined sausage, nor how Shaw made her getaway with the meat. Seen in the above mug shot, Shaw was fired from her job with the Kiolbassa Provision Company, which sells a wide variety of sausages, including an “all-Pork Chorizo” and “Beef & Cheddar Smoked Sausage.” Tech Support Pits From: Carolyn Re: Thumbnails to save disk space Dear Webby Dear Webby I have heard that it takes a lot of space on my computer to have pictures of family and friends in folders and that I should make thumbnails instead. Is this true? Thanks. I enjoy your Humor Letter very much. Carolyn Dear Carolyn Whoever told you that nonsense, should be put on a strict diet of Smarties, and should not allowed out of the funny farm without competent supervision. There is probably a lot of useless stuff on your computer, that can be dumped, and replaced if needed. However, pictures of your friends and family can not be replaced. They have more rights to be on your computer and on your back-up than ANY of the replaceable crap. Especially silly games that can be downloaded again. You can always get a second hard drive cheap. But pictures of friends and relatives are not replaceable. How many of the people at the last family reunion are still alive? I make thumbnails IN ADDITION to the regular size pictures, to make menuing and sorting easier, but I never reduce good pictures to thumbnail size without keeping them in original or at least regular size. You can at any time shrink pictures, but you can not expand them without making them look awful. When you click through the thumbnail for the daily picture, you get to the separate full size picture, not a zoomed view of the thumbnail. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Acorn Cookies These simple acorn cookies are a great treat for a fall party. Approximate Time: 15 minutes Ingredients: 1 package mini Nutter Butter cookies 1 package Hershey's Kisses 1/2 cup Wilton decorator icing mini chocolate chips brown icing color Steps: I chose to sort through the Nutter Butters and remove ones that were no longer sandwiches. (I didn't waste them though ...I ate them!) Color your icing to the desired shade of brown. Then place it into a sandwich bag and snip off one corner, to make a piping bag. Pipe a blob onto one side of the cookie, then press a Kiss onto the cookie. Then turn the cookie over and place a tiny dot of icing onto the center of the cookie. Press a mini chocolate chip into the icing. By lalala... [519] ______________________________________________________
