A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. --- Herm Albright (1876 - 1944) ______________________________________________________ >From Rona I accompanied my husband to get a haircut. While flipping through a magazine I found a hairstyle that would look good on me. I asked the receptionist if I could take the magazine next door to make a copy of the hairstyle photo. "Well, okay," she replied, "but leave some ID--a driver's license or credit card." "But my husband is here getting his hair cut," I explained. "Yeah... but we need something worth coming back for." ______________________________________________________ I'm not saying that the customer service in my bank is bad, not at all ! When I went in the other day and asked the clerk to check my balance. She came around the counter, and bumped into me. I think I will ask her to check my balance every chance I get! ______________________________________________________ Grandma and Grandpa were sitting in their porch rockers watching the beautiful sunset and reminiscing about "the good days," when Grandma turned to Grandpa and said, "Honey, do you remember how, after we were first married, you'd kind of nibble on my ear?" Grandpa slowly got up from his rocker and headed into the house. Alarmed, Grandma said, "Honey, where are you going?" Grandpa replied, "Do ged my deef!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Justine King, 33, Aliquippa, Pennsylvania Naked Pennsylvania driver sat atop whisky bottle A female driver who was not wearing pants or underwear was sitting atop an empty bottle of Black Velvet whisky when police approached her following a recent traffic accident, according to a court complaint charging the motorist with drunk driving, lewdness, and other criminal counts. Pennsylvania cops allege that Justine King, 33, struck another vehicle around 11 PM while driving near her home in Aliquippa, a city outside Pittsburgh. Police found King in the driver’s seat of her 2003 Chevrolet Malibu “with airbags deployed.” The vehicle was sitting in an intersection. When told that she had hit another car, King (seen at right) replied, “No I did not. I live around the corner and was just picking up my boyfriend.” While peering into the vehicle, a cop “observed that King was not wearing any pants or underpants.” The garments, the officer added, “were on the driver’s side under the pedals.” Officer Joshua Stanga also reported that King “was sitting naked on top of an open empty bottle of Black Velvet liquor.” When directed to put on her clothes and exit the Chevy, King said, “I don’t have any pants! I left my home without them!” After ignoring several demands to get out of the car, King was pulled from the vehicle the hard way, handcuffed, and placed into a police cruiser. She was “extremely belligerent, kicking, pulling away, and struggling” as Stanga sought to detain her, according to the complaint. Much fun was had by all, I imagine. Asked to identify herself, King responded, “The government got my name. You ain’t getting it! Ask the government.” King, who eventually provided her name, kicked out the cruiser’s back window, while also “continuously banging her head off the inside of the window panel.” King was charged earlier this month in connection with a separate September 30 incident. The January 15 complaint accuses her of drunk driving, resisting arrest, reckless driving, open lewdness, and disorderly conduct. She is scheduled for a February 20 District Court arraignment. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Barbara Re: Can't copy from Gmail Dear Webby, I have an e-mail friend that I’ve known for years and she’s having trouble with her gmail copy and pasting. Since I only use gmail as a throw away address I don’t do much with it. Here is what she wrote me: “BTW: have you noticed that it is almost impossible to copy a body of a gmail post anymore? I highlight and copy, but when I try to paste into a new post, there is nothing there. It is very frustrating. Do you know a way around it? I think they want to link who gets each post. If we cut and paste, the trail is broken.“ Do you know the answer? If you do I’ll tell her. By the way she said she subscribed to your Humor Letter when I sent her one with my Bonus Link in it. One of my sisters and one of my cousins subscribed to it too but they have Yahoo email so don’t receive it. I just email it to them. My best Barbara Dear Barbara That copy / paste problem is not unique to Gmail. No need to fear nefarious intentions by Gmail. It's simply a case of not enough free RAM. The same thing happens with Excel. Can't copy/paste with the mouse buttons. The remedy? Run CrapCleaner. It's free in my Tool Box. Sometimes a short term solution is to copy a comma or period to overwrite the previously copied large item. Quite often after that you can copy/paste normally again. As for the yahoos: Too much secret and unadmitted cybersex leads to an allergy against reading instructions. Happens to many AOLers too. Tell them to find somebody, who can whitelist humor@webby.com or make a filter to tell Yahoo not to censor or spam the Humor Letter. A lot of yahoos receive the Humor Letter without a problem most of the time. They admit that Yahoo is not as reliable in delivering it as Gmail or Protonmail, but they just go and read it online when Yahoo fails to deliver it. Have FUN!

Put a few drops of essential oils on the inside cardboard roll or spray your favorite fragrance into the cardboard roll. And the roll will absorb the scent throughout the entire roll. Ahhhh!

The man claimed the elephant could look at a person and tell that person's age. The Irishman was very skeptical and said so, in no uncertain terms. The man had the elephant look at a small boy and the elephant stamped its foot 9 times. "Is that right?" he asked the boy. "Yes, I'm nine!" the boy said. The Irishman continued his loud heckling, still not believing that this was true. The man asked the elephant to tell the ages of several other people, and each time the elephant stamped his foot and the people said he was correct. The Irishman got even louder and more abusive toward the man. Finally the man could take it no longer and wagered the Irishman that the elephant could look at him and tell him his age. The Irishman took him up on the wager. The elephant looked real close at the Irishman, turned around, raised his tail and cut wind like you wouldn't believe. Then he turned back around, knocked the Irishman to the ground with his trunk and then stomped on him twice. The Irishman, crumpled and bleeding, staggered back to his feet and with a sound of disbelief in his voice cried, "Lard, Thunder and Murphy, he's right!...Farty-two!"

Jock and Angus, two craggy Scots, were sitting before the clubhouse fireplace after 18 holes on a raw, blustery Christmas Day. The ice slowly melted from their beards and collected in puddles under their chairs. Outside, the wind howled off the North Sea and snow and hail rattled against the windows. The pair sat in silence over their whiskies. Finally, Jock spoke, "Next Monday, same time?" "Aye," Angus replied, "weather permittin'." _____________________________________________________ Little Johnny's new baby brother was screaming up a storm. He asked his mom, "Where'd we get him?"
