______________________________________________________ Two rural church deacons who were having a sociable beer in the local tavern when they saw their minister drive by and take a good long look at their pickup trucks parked outside. One deacon ducked down and said, "I hope the reverend didn't see us or recognize my pickup." The other replied indifferently, "What difference does it make. God knows we're in here... and he's the only one who counts." The first deacon countered, "God is OK. He won't tell my wife." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Lillemor for this picture: Phoenix Rising! ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Nora Longoria, 49, McAllen, Texas Texas judge busted for drunk driving pleads for special treatment: 'You are going to ruin my life'. A Texas appeals court judge appealed for some special treatment when she was busted for drunk driving over the weekend. Justice Nora Longoria was going 69 mph in her Lexus in a 55-mph zone when she was stopped by cops in McAllen just after 1 a.m. on Saturday morning, according to court records obtained by the Valley Morning Star. As she slurred her words, Longoria begged the officers for leniency even though she admitted she had five beers that evening, the last one three hours before getting behind the wheel. “Please let me go home," she said, according to the Valley Morning Star. "I live a couple of miles away ... you are going to ruin my life. I worked hard for 25 years to be where I am today." In addition, Longoria, 49, refused to let cops put handcuffs on her until they threatened her with a charge of resisting arrest, according to the documents. Longoria also declined to take a Breathalyzer after failing several sobriety tests. She was charged with driving while intoxicated and was released from jail later that morning after posting $2,000 bond. She was elected to the 13th Court of Appeals in 2012, and now she tells cops they are ruining her, because she was drunk as a skunk. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Wanda Re: Shortcut keys Dear Webby Thanks very much for all those keyboard shortcuts! My mom used to have these cardboard strips that fit onto the keyboard above the F keys and that had keyboard shortcuts printed on them. She had a strip for WordPerfect and one for Quattro and one for her magic mystery bats. Could you, pretty please, make us a strip like that for the keyboard shortcuts we need nowadays? Thanks xoxox Wanda Dear Wanda Your style seems somehow familiar, and so is the term "magic mystery bats". Please give my regards to your mother! OK, since you asked so nicely, I made a strip with the keyboard shortcuts for nowadays. You can see it and print the strip from that page at http://webby.com/humor/key-codes.html http://webby.com/humor/key-codes.html Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ Some Taliban decide to start a chicken farm. They get some chickens and plant them in the ground, headfirst. When all the chickens die, the farmers are somewhat confused, but they don't give up. They get some more chickens, but these are planted feet-first. It takes a little longer, but eventually the second batch of chickens die, too. They decide to write a letter to the agriculture bureau. In the letter they explain in detail the procedures they have followed and their disappointing results. A few weeks later they receive this reply from the bureau: "Before we can advise you, please send us a soil sample." ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ While driving through Buffalo after a heavy snow storm, a motorist noted a cop, apparently waist deep in snow, directing traffic. Feeling sorry for him, the motorist called out "I'm sorry you have to work half buried in the snow." The cop called back "Don't feel sorry for me, feel sorry for my horse!" ____________________________________________________ Sue wanted a haircut and phoned a salon early for an appointment but was told customers were taken on a walk-in basis only. On Saturday she got there by 9 a.m and there were already ten people waiting. Sue drove to another salon, but it was booked solid. Still another had no openings. The situation seemed hopeless, so she went home. Her husband greeted her at the door. "That was fast !" he said cheerfully. "And your hair looks great!" ____________________________________________________
