He excitedly took his new toy to the back yard to try it out. When he scattered some change on the ground, it seemed to work fine. Then, even when he wasn't near the coins, the thing kept going off. Over and over, he adjusted and re-adjusted with no luck. After watching him for a while, Sue said, "I think I know what's wrong." "I know what I'm doing!" he snapped back. After 20 minutes, he finally turned to her. "Okay, what's wrong?" Sue said, "You're standing over the buried oil tank." ______________________________________________________ In the good old days: Back in the 1970s we didn't have the satellites buzzing around within rifle range of the mountains to get all excited about. We had to settle for men walking on the crummy old moon. In my day, we didn't have virtual reality. If a one-eyed, razorback barbarian warrior was chasing you with an axe, you just had to hope your axe was better than his. In my day you couldn't take basket weaving or acting instead of math. And that was before they invented calculators! If you couldn't calculate the trajectory of an intercontinental missile, well, then you just repeated Grade 6 until you could. In my day, we didn't have school buses. We had to hitch a ride on a dinosaur or walk to school fifteen Miles, and it was all uphill. Both ways! ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Maureen for this picture: ______________________________________________________ When John returned to the house one evening, his wife Mary announced that the new cleaning woman they had hired had stolen two towels. "Yeah," said John very disinterested, and reclining on the sofa, "that wasn't very nice of her to do." "You're darn right it wasn't," Mary said. "They were the two best towels we had... the ones we got from the Hilton Hotel next door to the Motel 6 where we stayed in Hawaii." ______________________________________________________

Robber picks on the wrong woman Looks like she also tenderized his face. Should be quite colorful by now.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Eddie Re: Ubuntu instead of Windows 10 Dear Webby, Ok, now I am not liking what I am reading about "Windows 10" and the spying crap! Ok, so now what do you think about "Ubuntu 15.04"? I may just get out of windows altogether! Eddie Dear Eddie Ubuntu and most other flavors of Linux are better than W8, 8.1 and 10. That is why all the store tills run Linux or XP. First step is to find a Linux user in your area, so that you have a local helping hand. Then select the same flavor of Linux she or he uses. The rest is easy. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Unfortunate typos: - Minonk church, in their church bulletin asked worshippers to sing the hymn "Friendly Breasts," instead of, we hope, "Friendly Beasts." - Police report from Normal, Minnesota reported: "Officer licked repeatedly by female subject." - And a list of Chatsworth churches in Minnesota ironically listed the "Chatsworth Untied Methodist Church." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com ang Over the Door Hooks Upside Down I love the over the door hooks you get at the dollar stores. But sometimes, they can be used in the laundry room for catching the clothes before they wrinkle. I realized when finding a second hook that if your door is thinner, you can get more hanger room by flipping them upside down. The square garners you more hanger space, and the curved part hugs the thinner doors better. One hook holds 4 hangers and the other holds 6. This door is to the hot water heater, but some have cupboards over the washer and dryer, too. Hope that helps. PBP By Sandi/Poor But Proud [446] ______________________________________________________

The Judge asked the man if he would recognize the Officer if he ever saw him again, and the man replied that he would. The Judge then said, "Good. When you see the Officer again, tell him he owes you 57 dollars. Next!" ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ I was recovering from surgery when a charity representative phoned asking me to take part in a door-to-door fund-raising effort. "Sorry," I replied, "but I've been incapacitated." Undaunted, the caller kept trying to convince me to change my mind and volunteer. I interrupted and said, "I'm incapacitated. Do you know what that means?" She hesitated. "It means your head was cut off?" ____________________________________________________
