History ______________________________________________________ The greatest of faults, I should say, is to be conscious of none. --- Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881) ______________________________________________________ When the store manager returned from lunch, he noticed his clerk's hand was bandaged, but before he could ask about the bandage, the clerk said he had some very good news for him. "Guess what, sir?" the clerk said. "I finally sold that terrible, ugly suit we've had so long!" "Do you mean that repulsive pink-and-blue double-breasted thing?" the manager asked. "That's the one!" That's great!" the manager cried, "I thought we'd never get rid of that monstrosity! That had to be the ugliest suit we've ever had! But tell me. Why is your hand bandaged?" "Oh," the clerk replied, "after I sold the guy that suit, his seeing-eye guide dog bit me." ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A History professor was explaining how society's ideal of beauty changes with time. "Take Miss America in 1921," he noted. "She stood 5'1" tall, weighed 108 pounds, and had measurements of 30-29-32. How do you think she'd do in today's beauty contest?" "One student piped up, "Not very well! She'd be way too old!" ______________________________________________________ Why does a chicken coop have two doors?

Florida inmate gets new charges prior to release from prison A prisoner at Lake Correctional Institution was allegedly caught with synthetic marijuana he reportedly obtained during visitation hours. Joshua Tyler Emens, 27, who was slated to be released on Jan. 1, was hit with new charges Wednesday for possession of a controlled substance and possession of contraband at a state prison. He was taken to the Lake County Jail on the charges and is being held without bond. According to an arrest affidavit, Emens was visiting with his mother, Stacy Rodriguez, at the Clermont prision. He was searched by guards upon leaving the restroom and 43 grams of synthetic marijuana were found in a sandwich bag wrapped in black electrical tape in his back pocket. The affidavit adds Emens later claimed that another inmate named “Hotboy” gave him the drugs during the visitation with the promise of $50 to move it into the compound. Emens was sentenced to two years and six months in prison in March 2014 in Orange County after being convicted of grand theft, trafficking in stolen property and giving false information to a pawnbroker, according to the Florida D epartment of Corrections.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Bonnie Re: More Postcards Dear Webby, Duh, I missed that, and I've had bookmarked for years, totally forgot about it and drew a complete blank - thanks! Bonnie Dear Bonnie There is also a very nice and very elegant card site at If you like animations, try Yana's Yana created the famous cat unrolling the toilet paper animation about 20 years ago. There are of course hundreds more animations on her site. Another famous card site is Cards By Mouse at Mouse does not use a page editor. She writes everything by hand, and just quietly keeps adding more cards all the time. She stopped counting at 2000 about five years ago. Nobody knows how many she has by now. Bettye at Spirit Scents has Native themed cards, LOTS of them. Spirit Scents Another huge site is at If love and / or kisses are on your mind, that ist the site to go to. Anything from tender sweet to hilariously smart-ass. There are lots more, of course, but these should keep you busy for some time. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ===From Harold I love the Humor Letter and only wish you would send out the Sunday issue a bit earlier. You wouldn't believe how much inspiration I get from it and how much I borrow from it when I write the sermons for our pastors!

I suffered for a long time with nose bleeds due to a perforation and I found the shape of the Jif bottle was ergonomically shaped to keep the bridge of my nose cold thus stopping the bleeding. It's also handy for other uses such as on bruises and 'boo-boo's'! Just refill the container with water and keep in your freezer. If you collect a few of them, you can a lso pop them into pitchers without watering down your drinks (as ice does) and they look appealing too!

_____________________________________________________ Bidding at a local auction was proceeding furiously when the auctioneer suddenly announced, "A gentleman in this room has lost a wallet containing $10,000. If it is returned, he will pay a reward of $2,000." There was a moment's silence, and then from the back of the room came the cry, "Two thousand five hundred!" ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Anni was taking her time browsing through everything at a friend's yard sale, and said to her, "My husband is going to be very angry when he finds out I stopped at a yard sale." "I'm sure the old boy'll understand when you tell him about all the bargains," her friend replied. "Maybe," said Anni. "But he just broke his leg, and he's waiting for me to take him to the hospital to have it set." ____________________________________________________ A teacher asked one of her students, "What's the nation's capital?" The student said, "Washington DC." When asked what the 'DC' stood for, the student said, "Dot Com." ____________________________________________________
