When I was ready to pay for the gun and bullets, the cashier said "Strip down, facing me." Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control wackos running amok, I did just as she had instructed. When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out she was referring to how I should place my credit card in the card reader!!! I've been asked to shop elsewhere in the future. They need to make their instructions to seniors a little clearer. Needless to say, I didn't get a gun. But..... .........I still don't think I looked that bad. ______________________________________________________ When Joe stopped the bus to pick up a kid for preschool, he noticed an older woman hugging him as he left the house. "Is that your grandmother?" Joe asked. "Yes, she's come to visit us." "How nice," he said. "Where does she live?" "At the airport," Chris replied. "Whenever we want her, we just go out there and get her." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to dad for sending this picture: "Heaven-Candle" ______________________________________________________ What do you call a sleepwalking nun?

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Thomas Veres, 47, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Man Assaulted Brother For Not Sharing Big Macs A Pennsylvania man had a big beef with his brother over a Big Mac, and now he's facing assault charges. Thomas Veres, 47, was arrested early Wednesday morning after he allegedly punched his older brother, Matthew, 58, for eating three Big Macs and not saving one for him. Police said Veres was so mad that he ransacked the home they shared in Union Township, knocking over furniture and appliances and throwing food, the Washington County Observer-Reporter reports. Matthew Veres suffered injuries to his right eye and left cheek and had his ear cut during the assault, police said, according to the Associated Press. Thomas Veres was arrested for simple assault and harassment. He was taken to the Washington County Jail where he remains on $2,500 bond, according to CBS Pittsburgh.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Karl Re: Split Focus like in Linux Dear Webby, Hi, Webby, I found that CTRL+ALT+left or right key moves you through the desktops on Linux. From what I've seen regarding Win10, MSFT is sure asking a lot of it's customers. I appears that Win10 won't support our current file systems. The boss is a little worried. It's been a nice summer here in Denver this year. Nice cool and wet May and June followed by a very warm to hot July and August. It actually stayed green around here through mid July. One thing that I really love about Linux is that I can mouse over a screen in the background and scroll it while keeping another window in the foreground for typing. For example, filling out a form where the information you need is on another window. I can scroll the window down to the information without bringing that window forward. Is there a trick to do that in 'doze? Having fun! Karl in Denco Dear Karl I agree, W10 seems to be a dud, unless you travel by airplane a lot and need a touch screen laptop, because in today's airplanes there is not enough room for using a mouse. Re window focus, forget it. Windows has only one layer focus. If you try to scroll the spreadsheet or whatever in the background, then it becomes the foreground. Even passive stuff like OpenOffice doing an Auto-Save will pop it to the foreground and steal the focus away from Skype or whatever you are doing. A real nuisance. Here it used to be warm/hot until last night. Then the heat wave broke and we got rain. Today rain too. Looks like the fashionably desert brown lawns are turning green, and may need to be mowed again soon. Have FUN!

He figures that the driver in the vehicle must be drunk. The preacher decides that he should pass and get on down the road so there will be no chance of being in a possible accident. He starts around the car and hits a slick spot in the road and the car goes off into a deep ravine but lands right side up. The drunk stops and staggers over to the edge of the road and yelled, "Hey Buddy, are you okay?" The preacher answers back and says, "Yes, thank you, the Lord is riding with me." To which the drunk replies, "Well, you had better let him ride with me before you kill him." ______________________________________________________ Two babies in a hospital nursery: "I'm a little girl." "I'm a little boy." "How do you know you're a little boy?" "Wait till the nurse goes out and I'll show you." When the nurse left, the baby pulled up his gown. "See? Blue booties." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Belly Flattening Smoothie I got this recipe for my nutritionist friend years ago and after this back-to-back barbecue-full summer, have been using it a lot lately ! It's cheap, easy to make, and totally works. I generally have it a couple hours before bed time and wake up refreshed (and not to mention, it keeps me out of the cookie jar), but it works when you're feeling bloated any time. Approximate Time: 5 minutes Yield: 1 big smoothie Ingredients: 1/2 lemon 1/3 large cucumber 1 Tbsp grated ginger 1 Tbsp aloe vera juice or fresh aloe vera 1/2 bunch cilantro or parsley 4 fl oz water Steps: Chuck all the ingredients into a blender. Pulse for 30 seconds. If you feel the need to have it sweet (as it is a bit tart), add some raw honey. By attosa [113] ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ As the family gathered for a big dinner together, the youngest son had an announcement to make: He'd just signed up at an army recruiter's office. There were audible gasps around the table, then some laughter, as his older brothers shared their disbelief that he could handle this new situation. "Oh, come on, quit pulling our legs," snickered one. "You didn't really do that, did you?" "I know you'll never get through basic training," scoffed another. The new recruit looked to his mother for help, but she was just gazing at him. When she finally spoke, it was to voice a single question, "YOU, Billy-Bob, YOU really are going to be getting up in time, and not only that, but making your own bed every morning?" ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A man spent his weekend fishing without a single bite. As he's going home cold and dejected, he stops at a fish store on the edge of the lake and asks for four pike. He tells the clerk, "Pick out the four largest ones you have and throw them at me, will you?" "OK," the clerk says. "But why do you want me to throw them at you?" "Because," says the hapless fisherman, "I want to tell my wife that I caught them." ____________________________________________________
