Law enforcement officials say that those who can't come up with the money won't be evicted from their cells. They say the indigent will be eligible for waivers. Others can negotiate a payment plan. ______________________________________________________ An elderly lady from a remote little town went to one of Philadelphia's most fashionable suburbs to visit her niece and husband. Nearby was a very well known golf course. On the second afternoon of her visit, the elderly lady went for a stroll. Upon her return, the niece asked, "Well, Auntie, did you enjoy yourself?" "Oh, yes, indeed," said Auntie, beaming. "Before I had walked very far, I came to some beautiful rolling fields. There seemed to be a number of people about, mostly men in weird clothes. Some of them kept shouting at me in a very eccentric manner, but I took no notice. There were four men who followed me for some time, uttering curious excited barking sounds. Naturally, I ignored them, too." "Oh, by the way," she added, as she held out her hands, "You know how I detest littering. I found a number of these curious little round white balls, so I picked them all up and brought them home hoping you could explain what they're all about. I got my whole purse full of them." ______________________________________________________ Heirloom Big Book Of Classic Christmas Stories 2nd Edition with more stories and pictures $10 instant download ______________________________________________________ Came across this one in my archives: Jerome, Arizona ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joshua Peterson, 31, Leesburg, Florida
Florida felon desperate for Christmas behind bars arrested. Lake County deputies arrested a felon Tuesday who appeared to be getting an early start to his Christmas shopping. Joshua Peterson, 31, was nabbed for numerous thefts across Lake and Sumter counties, with an approximate value of $100,000, Lake County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Fred Jones said. Officials recovered five stolen pickup trucks: a Ford, a Toyota, a Mazda, a GMC and a Dodge. They also recovered a travel trailer, three lawn mowers, three weedeaters, a chainsaw and a four wheeler, from various locations across Lake and Sumter counties. Peterson, who was driving a white Ford F-150 and was towing a trailer, was stopped at a Speedway gas station near U.S. Highway 27 south of Leesburg. The deputy recognized the truck as one that had been reported stolen earlier in the night, he also recognized the driver as Peterson, according to an arrest report. The truck's license plate was reported stolen Monday from a vehicle at Leesburg Regional Medical Center, deputies said. Peterson also had methamphetamine, syringes and pills, the report states. He's been arrested six times previously in Lake County, and faced charges for theft and aggravated assault. He was most recently released from prison in March. He was sentenced on March 18, 2013 to two years and nearly 8 months in prison for 11 crimes, including grand theft and using forged bills, in Lake County. He was sentenced to two years, six months in prison on June 18, 2009 for at least 12 burglary charges. Peterson and another man, both Groveland residents at the time, were accused in 2009 of 15 burglaries, mainly of cars, along the U.S. 27 corridor. Records show he went to prison on July 8, 2009 and was released on March 1, 2011. He returned to prison on April 2, 2013 and was released on March 21 2015.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Fran Re: Voting Dear Webby, Usually the voting at the Ezinefinder doesn't mess up until the new year. It has been messed up and not allowing me to get into my favorites, actually not allowing me to log in! I know, writing to them does no good. What is going on? Fran Dear Fran Try voting now. It looks like they fixed it on Sunday afternoon. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ A radical feminist is getting on a bus when, just in front of her, a man gets up from his seat. She thinks to herself, "Here's another male chauvinist pig trying to keep up the customs of a patriarchal society by condescendingly offering a poor, defenseless woman his seat," and she pushes him back onto the seat. A few minutes later, the man tries to get up again. She is insulted again and refuses to let him up. Finally, the man says: "Look, weird lady, you've got to let me get up. I'm two miles past my stop already." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Brillo Pads for Clean Stainless Steel Sinks After several years of using harsh agents to clean my stainless steel sinks and destroying my hands in the process I have started using Brillo type soap pads (store brand of course).

_____________________________________________________ That remids me.... At a a crowded and busy bus stop, a woman wearing a tight leather skirt was waiting for a bus. As the bus stopped and it was her turn to get on, she became aware that her skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first step of the bus. Slightly embarrassed and with a quick smile to the bus driver, she reached behind her to unzip her skirt a little, thinking that this would give her enough slack to raise her leg. Again, she tried to make the step only to discover she still couldn't. So, a little more embarrassed, she once again reached behind her to unzip her skirt a little more, and for the second time attempted the step, and, once again, much to her chagrin, she could not raise her leg. With little smile to the driver, she again reached behind to unzip a little more and again was unable to make the step. About this time, a large Texan who was standing behind her picked her up easily by the waist and placed her gently on the top step of the bus. She went ballistic and turned to the would-be Samaritan and screamed, "How dare you touch my body! I don't even know who you are!" The Texan smiled and drawled, "Well, ma'am, normally I would agree with you, but after you unzipped my fly three times, I kinda figured we was friends." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ And that reminds me of ANOTHER bus joke: Reverend George had minor surgery after a bad accident and gets on the bus to get back to the rectory. He looks quite bedraggled and more like he had been in a bar fight than being hit by a cab, and is still a bit groggy from the anesthetic. He staggers up the aisle, and sits down next to an elderly woman. She looks Reverend George up and down and screeches at him: "I've got news for you. You're going straight to hell!" The Reverend George jumps up out of his seat and shouts: "Hold it, driver! I'm on the wrong bus! I don't wanna go where SHE goes!" ____________________________________________________ One of the world's greatest scientists was also recognized as the original absent-minded professor. One day, on board a train, he was unable to find his ticket. The conductor said, "Take it easy. You'll find it." and continued his rounds. When the conductor returned, the professor still couldn't find the ticket. The conductor recognized the famous scientist and said, "I'm sure you bought a ticket. Forget about it." "You're very kind," the professor said, "But I must find it, otherwise I won't know where to get off the train." ____________________________________________________
