Knowing that he could hop pretty high, the zoo officials put up a ten-foot fence. However, the next morning the kangaroo was out again, just roaming around the zoo. The zoo officials raised the height of the fence to twenty feet. Again, however, the next morning the kangaroo was again roaming around the zoo. This kept on, night after night, until the fence was sixty feet high. Finally, the camel in the next enclosure asked the kangaroo, "How high do you think they'll go?" The kangaroo replied, "Probably a hundred feet, unless somebody starts locking the gate at night!" ______________________________________________________ Two men were talking one day. "My wife asked me to buy ORGANIC vegetables from the garden market," said the first man. "So were you able to find some?" the second man asked. "Well when I got to the market, I asked the produce clerk, 'These vegetables are for my wife. Have they been sprayed with any poisonous chemicals?' "The produce clerk said 'No, you'll have to do that yourself.'

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Darrin Farmer, 55, North Versailles, Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania elections judge arrested for driving off with voting equipment Authorities in western Pennsylvania say a local judge of elections was arrested after allegedly failing to show up to the polls Tuesday and instead deciding to work as a jitney driver for the day. The Allegheny County sheriff's office says 55-year-old Darrin Farmer of North Versailles (Vehr-SAYLESS) never came to the North Versailles precinct with voting equipment, delaying poll opening by three hours. Authorities say his wife said he dropped her off at a store to buy refreshments for volunteers but then left. They allege he decided to spend the day giving rides for money. Farmer faces charges including tampering with public records and obstructing a government function; a listed number for him couldn't be found and it's unclear whether he has an attorney who could respond to the charges.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frank Re: Reliable email program Dear Webby, Once again I'm coming to the 'mountain' for HELP. Last evening I updated Mailwasher to the latest config. 7.7 and then this morning when I logged on and my mail was transferred to Eudora all of the mail that was both in my in and out boxes (Eudora) has disappeared. I would like to have it (mail) back since I've not replied to some of them. I did nothing else with my desktop other than update Mailwasher. Can and would you shed some light to make my day brighter. Peace Frank Dear Frank Mailwasher doesn't do anything to Eudora beyond transferring the focus to it, like clicking on it to making it active. That sounds like a routine Windoze malfunction. Did you try closing Eudora and re-opening it? Or closing it, and then rebooting? Have FUN! DearWebby Dear Webby, Like normal, I did as you instructed below. The emails came back BUT now in Eudora the inbox first left column with the 'dot' header is now showing a ? for ALL messages prior to this morning. This mornings recent mail shows the blue dot. The outbox is showing a red dot with an x inside the dot, in that same column for all sent messages including my initial request to you this morning prior to closing and reboot. Can you explain and can it be corrected? I'm having 'FUN!' now. Frank Dear Frank Normally Eudora keeps the IN and OUT box in RAM during operation, and writes to disk later. If Windoze decides it needs more RAM, it steals it from any non-Windows program. Theoretically, whatever it steals, is supposed to be written to the virtual memory (your hard drive). Sometimes that works OK, sometimes it doesn't. Eudora has a way to guard against that, and tells you to re-index the database. Compacting the database usually fixes the question marks and dots. To avoid that problem, keep the IN and OUT mailboxes small. Send mails to suitable mailboxes like Prayers, Recipes, Boobs, etc. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Two husbands, Bill and Doug, were discussing their married lives. Although happily married, they admitted that there were argument sometimes. Then Bill said, "I've made one great discovery. I now know how to always have the last word." "Wow!" said Doug, "How do you manage that?" "It's easy," replied Bill. "My last words are always 'Yes, Dear.'" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Floor Cleaner with No Residue Have you ever mopped with a cleaner just to discover you have a sticky floor from the residue? We bought some rubber planking floor that looks like wood and I wanted a good cleaner so I did some research. My research took me finally to Amazon where there is a product called Congoleum Bright 'N Easy No Rinse Cleaner. A 32 oz. bottle is $13.99 plus shipping, but I tell you, that bottle will last. You use 1/4 of a cup to a gallon of water. The floors looked beautiful with no residue. After reading reviews, I saw people were using it in the kitchen on the tile floors so I tried that and the floors looked better than anything I used in the past. So I can do the tiles and plank floors with this and never have a buildup. By linda [61] Since my dishes dry nice and clean without residue, I have used a squirt of dish soap per gallon of hot water on my high gloss soft vinyl and gloss hardwood wood floor for the last 15 years. No dull film or buildup at all. My floors are as clean and shiny as my dishes and glasses. Other dish soaps will probably work just as well. If your dish soap doesn't leave a film on your glasses, then it won't leave a film on the floor either. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A young mother finds out she is pregnant again, and she tells the good news to anyone who will listen. One day when the woman and the boy are out shopping, a friend of the mother asks the little boy if he was excited about the new baby. "Oh, yes!" the little tyke says. And having overheard some of his parents' private conversations, he adds, "And I know what we are going to name it, too. If it's a girl we're going to call it Barny, and if it's another boy we're going to call it Quits." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ While John and Jill were shopping at a mall, a shapely young woman in a short form-fitting dress strolled by... Johns eyes followed her. Without looking up from the item Jill was examining, Jill asked, "Was it worth the trouble you're in now?" ____________________________________________________ Noella's Blunders One time I was at the Farmer's market and was already lugging a big, (in the late 60's) fashionable wicker basket full of all kinds of fruit and veggies, when I spotted large pumpkins with a sign "1 penny". That sounded too good to be true. Well, on closer inspection I saw the tiny writing "per pound". Too late. By that time I was hooked. Since I was already overloaded I asked the farmer if he delivered, and gave him my address. "yes, sure," he said, if you buy a gross." I had no clue how many were in a gross, but I was hooked. I wanted some of those big, shiny pumpkins. He told me that he would weigh them and put the bill into my mailbox. I had to go to church choir after the farmers market and we went for some wine and cheese at the preacher's house afterward. So I didn't get home until quite late. The front door was barricaded with a pyramid of pumpkins, and half the porch was pumpkins 3 layers deep. I had no key for the back door with me. So, after crying for a bit, I circled the house looking for a window that I could burgle in through. Then a cop car stopped and a suspicious cop stomped over to me and yelled at me, wanting to know if I was trying to break in to that house. That made me mad and I screamed back at him just as loud: "Yes, as a matter of fact, I am!" He jumped back two feet, and looked things over. Then he started laughing. Really laughing and doubling over, slapping his thighs and laughing. After that he helped me move the pyramid from the front door to the east side of the porch and make a pyramid there. After that I could finally get inside, put away the veggies and fruit, and murder a pumpkin. I didn't go for the bill in the mailbox for a couple of days.
