Proud of her savings, she boasted to my father, "Just think, Fred, we are fifteen dollars richer because I washed this dress by hand." "Good," my dad quickly replied. "Wash it five more times and we can pay the phone bill!" ______________________________________________________ An old snake goes to see his Doctor. "Doc, I need something for my eyes, I can't see very well these days." The Doc fixes him up with a pair of glasses and tells him to return in 2 weeks.

One day a peddler came by to sell his goods and asked the man if he or his wife wanted to buy anything. The man said, "Well, my wife ain't home. She's gone down to the creek to wash clothes, but lemme see what you got." The peddler showed him pots and pans, tools and gadgets, but the old man wasn't interested. Then the man spotted a mirror and said, "What's that?" Before the peddler could tell him it was a mirror, the old man picked it up and said, "My God, how'd you get a picture of my Pappy?" The old man was so happy, he traded his wife's best pitcher for it. The peddler left before the wife came back and spoiled his sale. The old man was worried that his wife would be mad at him for trading her best pitcher, so he hid the mirror in the barn behind some boxes of junk. He would go out to the barn 2 or 3 times a day to look at the "picture" and eventually the wife got suspicious. One day she got fed up and after he retired for the night, she went out to the barn. She saw the mirror behind the boxes, picked it up and said, "So, this is the hussy he's been foolin' around with!" _________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Cindy Sanchez Carabeo, 50, Brandon, Florida
Woman Guilty Of Robbing 3 Banks In Half Hour For Daughter's Party An accused thief told a court she held up three banks in May to raise money for her daughter's graduation party. Cindy Sanchez Carabeo, 50, of Brandon, Florida, pleaded guity in federal court on Thursday to one count of interfering with interstate commerce by robbery, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Carabeo told a judge she robbed the banks to pay for a graduation party for her daughter and to cover her rent. She faces up to 20 years in prison. Police arrested Carabeo in May after she stole $6,000 from a BB&T Bank, a Wells Fargo and Florida Central Credit Union in Brandon in less than the time it takes to deliver a pizza. However, investigators nabbed her even faster, according to Larry McKinnon of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office. "By the time she made it home after that third robbery, within 15 minutes we had her in custody and all three bank managers were able to positively identify her," McKinnon told WPTV. Authorities said McKinnon threatened to kill one teller but wrote "Happy Mother's Day" on the hold-up note, according to

Is that still available? Thanks Edith Dear Edith Yes, sure: Just drag the tiny icon at the left of the address bar onto your desktop, and you will have an instant link to that page. If you want a program, that installs on your computer and will supply the extra keys without having to type in numbers on the numeric keypad, you can get EXTRA-KEYS at ExtraKeys Hit MORE in the bottom right corner for more symbols. If you have a narrow laptop without a numeric keypad, that program will be your only practical solution, other than highlighting and copying a symbol on my page. Have FUN!

I hope it's not homework again." "Well, uh, yes it is," replied . "I made my homework paper into a paper airplane." ", that wasn't a very bright thing to do," said the teacher, "but this once, I'll let you just unfold the paper and hand it in." "Oh, but that won't work," said , looking even sadder. "You see, Johnny hijacked the plane, and handed it in as HIS homework!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Leftover Hamburger Pasta Soup All you need to do to use some leftovers and make a different meal. Add a quart size carton of chicken broth to last night's leftovers and make a fabulous soup. Last night we had a hamburger, tomato & pasta dish, but you can use any casserole dish. Top it with shredded cheese and bread on the side and you have another great meal. Can't be any easier than this! By Jackie H. [114] Instead of an expensive carton of broth you can just heat a pot of wter, stir in a heaping tsp Minestrone Soup mix, stir, and pour the Minestrone soup over the leftovers. Simmer for a bit and it's done. Same results, at 1/20th the cost. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

The bear rears up on his hind legs and lets out a terrifying roar. They're both frozen in their tracks. The first camper whispers, "I'm sure glad I wore my running shoes today." "It doesn't matter what kind of shoes you're wearing, you're not gonna outrun that bear," replies the second. "I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun YOU," he answers, as he takes off. ___________________________________________________
