History ______________________________________________________ Maturity is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter can be said to remedy anything. --- Kurt Vonnegut (1922 - 2007) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ On the morning after the consummation of the marriage of two senior citizens. The new bride awoke purring. Hearing her new husband running water in the bathroom, she said, "Did you just brush your teeth?" The husband answered, "Yes, dear. And while I was at it, I brushed yours too." ______________________________________________________ Angus McGillicuddy was looking for a gift for a friend of his. Everything he saw in the store was too expensive. Then he came across a glass vase that had been broken, which could be purchased for next to nothing. The tightwad asked the store clerk to send the gift, hoping his friend would think that the vase had been broken during transit. A couple of weeks later, the tightwad received an acknowledgment for the gift. "Thanks for the vase," read the card. "It was so thoughtful of you to wrap each piece separately." ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by Walter, the Stonecarver.com An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Carneeka Sanders, 20, St. Petersburg, Florida
Florida woman arrested for carrying pot and a cigar in her vagina, plus outstanding warrants. Sanders was arrested last night on an outstanding warrant after a car she was traveling in was stopped by St. Petersburg police. After being patted down by a cop, Sanders "stated she had marijuana and a cigar in her vagina," according to a criminal complaint. Sanders then “provided the marijuana and cigar” to an officer. Seen above, Sanders was arrested for pot possession and the outstanding warrant (which was related to her alleged failure to return a rental car). Sanders, who was arrested twice last year for pot possession, was released from custody early this morning after posting $5000 bond. Police records list Sanders’s employer as the Steak 'n Shake restaurant chain. The complaint does not detail the weight of the marijuana seized, the size of the stashed cigar, or whether the stogie was stuffed with pot.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Karen Re: Attack by Skype 7 Dear Webby, I don't like Skype 7. Period. It is a piece of crap, and the way it wastes screen space is ridiculous. Yes, I know, I can UNinstall the bloody nuisance and then install 6.20 again, but I hate the way it assumes I want 7.something every time Windows bungs up and I am frantically trying to save and close programs. Just then, when I really don't want anything else starting up, it does an unauthorized "update". Is there a way to stop those sneaky update attacks? Thanks Karen Dear Karen That is a very common problem, since Skype 7 is about as popular as Windows 8. Click on START, then type services.msc when it finds it, click on it. Eventually Services will start, just be patient. After it shows a list of services, look for Skype Updater. Click on it, and select Properties in there change Automatic to Disabled. That will stop the nuisance attacks. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ A man went to the doctor complaining of insomnia. The doctor gave him a thorough examination, found absolutely nothing physically wrong with him, and then told him, "Listen, if you ever expect to cure your insomnia, you just have to stop taking your trouble to bed with you." "I know" said the man, "but I can't. Until snow plowing season starts and more money comes in, I can't afford a divorce!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cheese Tart Recipe Ingredients 1 package cream cheese, softened 1 can sweetened condensed milk 1/3 cup lemon juice from concentrate 1 tsp. vanilla 2 packages. graham cracker crusts Assorted fruit (such as strawberries, blueberries, bananas, raspberries, orange segments, cherries, kiwi fruit, grapes, pineapple, etc.) 1/4 cup apple jelly, melted (opt.)

____________________________________________________ GRANDMA SHOES When I was very little, All the Grandmas that I knew All walked around this world, In ugly grandma shoes. You know the ones I speak of, Those black clunky heeled kind, They just looked so very awful That it weighed upon my mind, For I knew, when I grew old, I'd have to wear those shoes, I'd think of that, from time to time It seemed like such bad news. I never was a rebel, I wore saddle shoes to school. And next came ballerinas Then the sandals, pretty cool. And then came spikes with pointed toes, Then platforms, very tall, As each new fashion came I wore them, one and all. But always, in the distance, Looming in my future, there, Was that awful pair of ugly shoes, The kind that Grandmas wear. I eventually got married And then I became a Mom. Our kids grew up and left, And then their children came along. I knew I was a Grandma And the time was drawing near, When those clunky, black, old lace up shoes Was what I'd have to wear. How would I do my gardening? Or take my morning hike? I couldn't even think about How I would ride my bike! But fashions kept evolving, And one day I realized That the shape of things to come Was changing, right before my eyes. And now, when I go shopping What I see, fills me with glee. For, in my jeans and Reeboks I'm as comfy as can be. And I look at all these teenage girls And there, upon their feet Are clunky, black, old Grandma shoes, And they really think they're neat. ____________________________________________________ Four older ladies are sitting around playing bridge. The first lady says, "You know girls, I have known you all a long time and there is something I must get off my chest. I am a Kleptomaniac. But, don't worry, I have never stolen from you and I never will; we have been friends for too long." The second lady says, "Well, since we are having true confessions here, I must get something off my chest too. I am a Nymphomaniac. But don't worry, I have not hit on your husbands. They don't interest me and never will; we have been friends for too long." "Well," says the third lady, "I, too, must confess something. I am a Lesbian. But do not worry, I will not hit on you. You are not my type. We have been friends too long for me to ruin our friendship." The fourth lady stands up, says, "I have a confession to make also. I am an uncontrollable gossip, but now I have to run. Got some urgent phone calls to make!" ____________________________________________________
