They parked their truck at the end of the alley and worked their way to the other end. At the last house a woman looking out her kitchen window watched the two men as they checked her gas meter. Finishing the meter check, the senior supervisor challenged his younger coworker to a foot race down the alley back to the truck to prove that an older guy could outrun a younger one. As they came running up to the truck, they realized the lady from that last house was huffing and puffing right behind them. They stopped and asked her what was wrong. Gasping for breath, she replied, "When I see two gas men running as hard as you two were, I figured I'd better run too!" ______________________________________________________ A minister was planning a wedding at the close of the Sunday morning service.

Immediately, nine single ladies, six widows and two single men stepped to the front. ______________________________________________________ These bloomed today.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jonathan Edward Medley, 39, Geneva, Alabama
Alabama Man, who molested Wife's Shih Tzu because she gave it more attention and it didn't have a headache. An Alabama man is facing animal cruelty charges after police said he had sex with his wife's shih tzu. Jonathan Edward Medley, 39, of Geneva, was arrested Friday night, one day after his wife reported the alleged assault to authorities, according to WTVY.com. Medley's wife originally suspected her husband was cheating on her with another woman so she hid a recording device in the house hoping to get proof of his infidelities, the Dothan Eagle reports. Instead, she allegedly discovered Medley was molesting Buster, a two-year-old Shih Tzu that weighed less than 10 pounds. Even more sickening than the assault was the explanation police said Medley gave for his behavior. “He was mad at his wife because she paid more attention to the dog than him so he had sex with the dog,” Geneva Police Capt. Ricky Morgan said, according to Al.com. The dog apparently didn't have a headache. Medley was charged with a misdemeanor count of animal cruelty. His bond was set at $535. Medley was only charged with a misdemeanor because there is no longer a bestiality law in Alabama, according to the Dothan Eagle. WTVY reports that Buster was examined by a veterinarian and is doing well.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jan Re: Converter Dear Webby, I agree with you that we should convert to metric, like the rest of the world. Our system is totally ridiculous, when you think about it. I am getting used to using it when communicating with friends all over the world. It is totally simple and easy, once you are in it. Just move the decimal point! My problem is converting from the British Imperial system to the Metric system. Do you have an easy to use converter, that has most of the different units, and that is not too expensive? Thanks Jan Dear Jan I feel the same way. I had to learn the British Imperial system when I immigrated to Canada in 1970, and as soon as I was used to that, Canada upgraded to Metric. Nowadays, even though I had written a converter program in the late 80's, if I have to convert something, I use Josh Madison's converter. You can download it free at https://joshmadison.com/convert-for-windows/ or if you have trouble there, you can get it from my Tools at http://webby.com/tools near the bottom of the top menu or directly from http://webby.com/tool/convert.zip Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ >From Bob My relatives were gathered for the reading of my Last Will And Testament after my long awaited death. The lawyer opened the envelope, and read solemnly: "Being of sound mind and body, I spent every last cent before I died." ______________________________________________________ Little Harold was practicing the violin in the living room while his father was trying to read in the den. The family dog was lying in the den, and as the screeching sounds of little Harold's violin reached his ears, he began to howl loudly. The father listened to the dog and the violin as long as he could. Then he jumped up, and yelled above the noise, "For Pete's sake, can't you play something the dog doesn't know?!" _________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Washing Soda for Cleaning Sponges Washing soda is best for cleaning sponges and cleaning cloths. It will remove soap, dirt, or anything else remaining within. Things caught in the sponge will cause odors as well as give germs a place to fester. I even clean my micro cloths this way. It is safe enough to clean Enjo mops and cloths. By katesnanna [12] ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Once, while driving around in my pickup with my pet donkey in the back, I discovered I had a flat tire. I got out and had the donkey stick its head under the bumper and lift the truck.A passing farmer asked, "Hey, that's a pretty clever trick. How did you teach your donkey to lift the truck?" I replied, "Its a simple matter of the breed; this is a jack ass!" _____________________________________________________ The company psychiatrist was interviewing Nancy. As she sat in the chair, the psychiatrist asked a series of questions to determine if she was emotionally suitable for the company. Things were not not going well for Nancy. The psychiatrist decided to try a new approach, to give Nancy one last chance. He asked, "if you could have a conversation with someone, living or dead, who would it be?" Nancy quickly responded, "the living one." ____________________________________________________
