If you live to be one hundred, you've got it made. Very few people die past that age. --- George Burns (1896 - 1996) ______________________________________________________ Mary and Jane are old friends. They have both been married to their husbands for a long time; Mary is upset because she thinks her husband doesn't find her attractive anymore. "As I get older he doesn't bother to look at me!" Mary cries. "I'm so sorry for you, as I get older my husband says I get more beautiful every day." replies Jane. "Yes, but your husband's an antique dealer!" ______________________________________________________ Jill was selling tickets at the movie house when she got a phone call. This woman said, "How much is a ticket?" Jill said, "Nine dollars." She said, "How much for children?" Jill said, "Same price, nine dollars per seat." She said, "The airlines charge half fare for children." Jill said, "OK, put the kids on a plane somewhere, and you come to the movie. You'll enjoy it a lot more that way." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture

Father-Son duo caught of stealing $72,000 in health and beauty aids Rogaine, razors and pregnancy strips are just some of the more than $72,000 worth of health and beauty items an Oregon father and son are accused of stealing from stores in several states across the Northwest. Police in Beaverton on Friday announced the arrest of 56-year-old Robert Stephen Ellwood and his 28-year-old son, Robert William Ellwood, both of Hermiston. The father and son duo targeted a number of retail stores, including Safeway and Albertsons, during an eight-week shoplifting spree in Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington, according to police. "They had been stealing thousands of dollars of health and beauty aids," Beaverton police said in a Friday press release. The father and son were arrested after they allegedly sold the stolen merchandise to an undercover investigator. Authorities have charged both men with aggravated theft. They are being held at the Washington County Jail in lieu of a $2,000 bond.

DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Ray and Randy were riding the New York City subway when a beggar approaches them asking for spare change. Randy adamantly rejects the man in disgust. Ray, on the other hand, whips out his wallet, pulls out a five, and gladly hands it to the beggar with a smile. The beggar thanks him profusely and continues on to the other passengers. Randy is outraged by his friend's act of generosity. "What on EARTH did you do that for???" shouts Randy. "You know damn well he's only going to use it on booze!!!" Ray replies, "And we weren't?" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Straw for Removing Strawberry Tops I have seen this on Thriftyfun before and have just tried it. It works! Use a straw to remove the cap and stem from strawberries. Poke the straw through the bottom of the strawberry and out the top. The straw will push the cap up making it easy to remove.

_____________________________________________________ Henry was very old - in fact, he was about to celebrate his eighty-third birthday. He went to the doctor for a checkup. The doctor gave him a thorough going-over, and then said, "For a man who's about to be eighty-three, you're in marvelous shape. But why a physical just a day before your birthday?" The old man explained that that very afternoon he was going to marry an eighteen-year-old girl. The doctor tried with a great deal of effort to dissuade him. "I'm goin' ahead with it no matter what," the old man said. "Got any other suggestions, Doc?" "Just one. If you want a really peaceful marriage, I suggest that you take in a boarder." The old man thought about it and said that it sounded like a good idea. The next time the doctor met the old man it was at a church fund-raising affair, half a year later. The old man came up to him and said, "Doctor, congratulate me! My wife's pregnant!" The doctor tried to maintain his poise, and said, "Well, so at least you followed my good advice and took in a boarder." "Oh, sure," said the old man, with a wicked grin, "and the boarder's pregnant too!" _____________________________________________________ As the passengers settled in on a West Coast commuter flight, a flight attendant announced, "We'd like you folks to help us welcome our new co-pilot. He'll be performing his first commercial landing for us today, so be sure to give him a big round of applause when we come to a stop." The plane made an extremely bumpy landing, bouncing hard a few times times before smoothing out. Still, the passengers applauded. Then the attendant's voice came over the intercom, "Thanks for flying with us. And don't forget to let our co-pilot know which of his three landings you liked best." ____________________________________________________
