An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tosheba Hope, 30, and Gerald Moultrie, 24, Lauderdale Lakes, Florida Walmart Shoplifters Left Kids In Vehicle -After getting arrested last night for shoplifting at Walmart, a Florida couple failed to mention that their three young children were alone in a locked car in the store’s parking lot, where the youngsters were discovered seven hours after the pair’s jailing. According to investigators, Tosheba Hope, 30, and Gerald Moultrie, 24, drove last night to a Walmart in Lauderdale Lakes. They were accompanied by Hope’s three children (ages two, five, and seven). Moultrie is the father of Hope's youngest child. Around 7 PM, Hope and Moultrie, pictured above, were detained after they allegedly sought to walk out of the retailer with $660 worth of tools and automotive accessories, according to a police report. The couple was subsequently arrested by Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies and charged with grand theft, a felony. After Hope and Moultrie were booked into the county jail, seven hours passed before investigators learned that their three children had been abandoned in the parking lot (Walmart workers spotted the minors and called 911). Deputies located the minors around 2 AM and turned them over to child welfare officials. While distressed, the children were unharmed. In addition to the felony theft rap, the couple is also expected to face child neglect charges. According to court records, Moultrie’s rap sheet includes previous arrests for marijuana possession and driving without a license. During a court appearance this morning, Hope told a judge that she is “probably pregnant” with her fourth child. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ben Re: Bigger clock Dear Webby, the tiny clock in the right bottom corner is too small for my eyes, and there is no way to adjust it's size. All the cute "gadget" clocks are a No-No, because they come with built in hijackers, that take advantage of a big hole, that Microsoft left in there. Yeah, I know. Found out the hard way. What do you use? Ben Dear Ben I use ALARM, a very tiny and perfectly clean little program from http://bluefive.pair.com/alarm.htm It does not go outside and call in the time and hijackers, it just uses the system time, that your machine already has. It looks like a small digital alarm clock: You can use the built in sound, or load any music file you want. You can also select the font and a few other preferences. If you use Arial, 72 point, the time shows in 5/8" size numbers. You can, of course use any size you want. After that, you simply set the time for the alarm to go off. Until that time, it just quietly displays the time. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Angel Winks from http://angelwinks.net for this one: A farmer lived on a quiet rural highway. But a new express- way bypass meant an alarming increase in traffic. In fact, it was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of three a day. So he called the sheriff's office and said, "You've got to do something about these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens." So the next day the sheriff went out and put up a sign that read: SLOW: SCHOOL CROSSING Three days later the farmer called again and said, "You've got to do something about these drivers. The School Crossing sign seems to make them go faster." So, again, the sheriff went out and put up a new sign: SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY No good. So the farmer calls again...and again, everyday for three weeks, but the sheriff just doesn't have time to put up signs every week. Finally, the telephone calls stop and the sheriff becomes very curious. So he drives out to the farmer's house, and just beyond the jam of VERY slow moving traffict he sees a new black sign. Written in large yellow letters on it are the words: NUDIST COLONY ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com TV Dinner Trays As Drawer Organizers I always thought that the trays your t.v. dinner comes in could be useful for something.

We originally wanted to put him on Mt. Rushmore until we discovered there was not enough room for two more faces. We then decided to erect a statue of Bill Clinton in the Washington, D.C. Hall of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed. It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside Jessie Jackson, who never told the truth, since Bill Clinton could never tell the difference. We finally decided to place it beside Christopher Columbus, the greatest Democrat of them all. He left not knowing where he was going, did not know where he was, returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone else's money. If you are one of the fortunate people who have anything left after taxes, we expect a generous contribution to this worthwhile project. Thank you, Bill Clinton Monument Committee PS: In six months of dedicated fundraising we have already collected a whopping $1.35 so far! ____________________________________________________
