The waiter looks at her dryly and says "Sure lady, which way did you fire it ?" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Ryan Patrick Bautista, 34, Leanne Hunn, 30, , Jacksonville, Florida
Couple Prolongs Police Standoff To Have Sex 'One Last Time' Ryan Patrick Bautista, 34, and Leanne Hunn, 30, allegedly refused to surrender to police until they could have sex together one last time. A standoff began Wednesday night when Jacksonville Sheriffs responded to a call about Michael Forte, 34, who was wanted on several warrants including armed burglary, reports. A Jacksonville Sheriffs Office spokeswoman said deputies were also looking for Bautista, who also had several warrants, including armed burglary. Bautista and Hunn reacted to the police visit by barricading themselves inside a mobile home and refusing to leave for more than six hours, according to Three other adults were inside the home at the time police arrived, but one woman was allowed to leave a short time later. Police said Hunn and Bautista detained another woman by dragging her to a back bedroom where she was held down, according to the website. That woman was eventually allowed to leave, but Hunn and Bautista refused to exit the mobile home. Hostage negotiators were called to the scene and attempted to communicate with the couple via phone and bullhorns, according to At some point during the standoff, Hunn told police she would give herself up but not until she had sex with Bautista “one last time,” according to the website. Hunn never did come out on her own. Eventually, officers broke into the mobile home and arrested the couple. Bautista and Hunn were arrested and charged with resisting police and false imprisonment, according to CBS News. They are currently in the Duval County Jail. The couple apparently had an audience for their "last time" lovemaking session. Turns out Forte, the subject of the original phone tip, was also in the mobile home. Forte was arrested and charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, armed robbery, and murder, according to Inside Edition. Forte is currently being held in the Duval County jail on charges of murder, armed robbery with a firearm or other deadly weapon and possession of a weapon by a felon, according to jail records.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Annalisa Re: Desktop messed up Dear Webby Windoze has done it AGAIN. Totally screwed up my perfectly organized desktop and just moved all icons in one disorganized pile on the left side, while I was not even near the computer. When I saw that, this prim and proper lady used some VERY foul language! What have you got to keep me from cussing like that? Annalisa Dear Annalisa I got an add-on that installed itself into the right-click menu for saving or restoring the desktop. Unfortunately, I got that probably half a dozen years ago and have long forgotten where I got it from. Try right-clicking the desktop and see if you have that add-on. In case you don't have that, I searched for an alternative. I tested it, and it is clean and works well. Go to Desktop OK and Download the program at Desktop OK Program You have to unzip it and then run it. Don't get flustered by the many options in it! Just look at the Auto-Save, tell it to save 32 back-ups, and to save when Windows shuts down. Saving every 15 minutes is available, but in my opinion not a good idea. That could possibly save right after Windows messes up your desktop. If you have time and inclination, you can play with the ton of options in there, but it works fine as is. If it looks like it disappeared, click the double upwards arrows in the right bottom, beside the W10 nagger. That shows you programs, that are running in the background. One of them is a white mini desktop with some colored dots in it. That's Desktop OK. If you want to restore the desktop, you can select which saved version you want. Have FUN!

He asked a young boy where the post office was. When the boy told him, he thanked him and said, "If you'll come to the Baptist church this evening, you can hear me telling everyone how to get to Heaven." "Huh! the boy huffed, "You don't even know your way to the post office." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Use Shower Curtain Rings as Hangers Each time you buy a new shower curtain it comes with a new set of curtain rings which are not always needed.

_____________________________________________________ A kid walked up to a guy wearing a 10-gallon hat, leather vest, leather chaps, and sneakers. The kid asked him, "Mr. Cowboy, why do you wear that big hat?" The cowboy replied, "Well, son, the big hat protects me from hot sun and driving rain, and at night I put it over my face when I sleep on the range, so it protects me then, too." "Why do you wear that leather vest?" "It also helps to keep the weather off me, and it has pockets where I can keep my cigarettes and matches." "Well, why do you wear leather chaps?" "They protect my legs when I'm riding my horse through rough bushes." "Well, Mr. Cowboy," the kid finally asked, "Why do you wear sneakers instead of cowboy boots ?" "That's so people won't think I'm a truck driver." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ This one is a classic, but good enough to see again: The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the computers. He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?" Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster the boss asked, "Is your Daddy home?" "Yes", whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" the man asked. To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No." Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?" "Yes", "May I talk with her?" Again the small voice whispered, "No". Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child. "Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child. "Yes" whispered the child, "A policeman". Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked "May I speak with the policeman"? "No, he's busy", whispered the child. "Busy doing what?, asked the boss. "Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman", came the whispered answer. Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the ear piece on the phone the boss asked, "What is that noise?" "A hello-copper", answered the whispering voice. "What is going on there?", asked the boss, now alarmed. In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper in the sandbox!" Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated the boss asked, "Why are they there"? Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle: "They're looking for me." ____________________________________________________
