That IS funny!
I have not heard from Rachael yet, or if I did, maybe I
told her that I don't have a phone, and she believed it.

Have FUN!

Leroy was telling his friend Bubba about the date he had the night before, "It was a bummer. She used four letter words all evening. First and last time I take her out!" Bubba exclaimed, "Really? I can't believe you didn't enjoy that." "Guess again," said Leroy, "All night she kept saying 'Quit', 'Stop', and 'Don't!....'" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Judy for this one: Had to send you this true story: My niece has 4 kids and was breast feeding the baby when #3 child, Jack wanted to climb up into her lap. During the process he was using his elbows to push his way up and hit her other breast so she said: 'watch the elbows Jack'. When Grandmother came over later, Jack climbed up into her lap, patted her rather ample bosom and said 'I like your elbows, Grandma'. Needless to say, they will always be elbows to us from now on! Thanks for all the fun you send, Judy ______________________________________________________ Stanton Mountain, Montana ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by West Virginia couple arrested for trying to sell her baby Ashley Harmon Jonathan Flint Layland, West Virginia Ashley Harmon and Jonathan Flint are charged with child neglect after trying to sell Harmon's 3-month-old baby for $500 to $1000. Deputies said the couple showed up at a neighbor's door and tried to get Carolyn Redden to buy the child. She refused, but took the child in to care for her. Redden did not want to show her face on camera, but she spoke to Eyewitness News about her efforts. "Why have a child if you're not going to care for it?" Redden said. "Just because it is hard doesn't mean you give up on a child." The mother ran away leaving the sick baby at Redden's home. The couple left one soiled diaper and a bottle of spoiled milk. "I ran out and got diapers and more bottles for her," Redden said. "She was shaking, clinching her fists, crying and screaming." The baby had diaper rash so badly and was so sick, Redden called 9-1-1. Her call to law enforcement may have saved the child's life. She gave names and descriptions to Fayette County detectives, and they were able to track down the couple and arrest them. Fayette County deputies said Ashley Harmon has two other children she has left in another part of the state. They also said the baby's biological father had nothing to do with this. He did not know where the mother had taken the child. The baby is currently with Child Protective Services. They will decide if the biological father will get stuck with custody. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Billie RE: Viruses and spyware Dear Webby, All this talk about spyware has gotten me worried. I have that Anti-virus program that came with my computer, isn't that enough protection? What is the diff between viruses and spys anyway? All I use the computer for is for email during work and in the evening I browse a bit and download music and the odd game. Should I be concerned ? Billie Dear Billie Yes, Billie, you should be VERY concerned. OK, first the difference between viruses and spies. Viruses spread from one user to many others. Most viruses nowadays don't harm or slow down your system, they just line it up and get it ready for remote control by a spammer or hacker. Spyware does not normally spread horizontally. It comes down to you directly from music, porno and game servers and also from spam. Spyware spies on you, extracts information that can be simply where you shop and what you buy, but it can also include sensitive information like credit card and bank info. Naturally all that snooping around and reporting slows your system down, and the more spyware you have on your machine, the more it slows down. Most of the spies just quietly snoop and don't show any easily detectable signs other than slowing you down. However, some spyware also adds "hotbars" similar to your regular task bar. Others change your modem settings so that every now and then you dial up through a 1-900 pay line. Some hijack your browser's Home Page choice and substitute theirs, others hijack your browser completely and only let you go to sites affiliated with the spies. Almost all spyware takes your addresses and the ones in your address books and sells them to spammers. There is NO spyware that is beneficial to YOU. The most immediately visible result of cleaning all spyware out of your computer is that it speeds up quite remarkably and runs just as fast as it did when it was new. You can get rid of a lot of spyware with Spybot-Search&Destroy. To get rid of viruses I recommend McAfee Have FUN!

They decided to take him to the hospital for evaluation. En route, with siren going, they questioned the man to determine his level of awareness. Leaning close, one asked, "Sir, do you know what we're doing right now?" The old man slowly looked out the ambulance window. "Oh," he replied, "I'd say about 40, maybe 45." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Recipe: Two Ingredient Biscuits By Robyn [382 Posts, 763 Comments] These biscuits are made with whipping cream and self rising flour.

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Gayle for these classics: In 1983, a Mrs. Carson of Lake Kushaqua, N.Y., was laid out in her coffin, presumed dead of heart disease. As mourners watched, she suddenly sat up. Her daughter dropped dead of fright. A man hit by a car in New York in 1977 got up uninjured, but lay back down in front of the car when a bystander told him to pretend he was hurt so he could collect insurance money. The car got bumped, rolled forward and crushed him to death. ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ The husband didn't want to play in the "Couples Alternate Shot Tournament" at the club, but he reluctantly agreed just for the sake of martial harmony. He got the first shot. He teed off, a par four, and fired a drive 300 yard down the middle of the fairway. When they reached the ball, he said to his wife (a novice golfer), "Just hit it towards the green, hon, anywhere around there will be fine." She proceeded to knock the ball deep into the woods. Undaunted, he said, "That's ok, dear, we'll play it." He spent five full minutes looking for the ball. He played it for the shot of his life and actually put the ball just two feet from the hole on the green. Arriving on the green he said, "Now, dear, all you have to do is knock it gently into the hole." She whacked it a good one, right off the green and into a sand trap. The husband, still retaining his composure, marched into the sand trap, summoned all of his skill, and amazingly holed the shot from there. Retrieving the ball from the hole he put his arm around his wife and calmly said, "Honey, that was a bogey -- one over par -- but that's ok. I think we can do better on the next hole." She snapped back at him, "Don't bitch at ME. Only *2* of those *FIVE* shots were mine!" ____________________________________________________ A nearsighted minister glanced at the note that Mrs. Jones had sent to him by an usher. The note read: "Bill Jones, having gone to sea, his wife requests the prayers of the congregation for his safety." Failing to observe the punctuation, he startled his audience by announcing: "Bill Jones, having gone to see his wife, desires the prayers of the congregation for his safety." ____________________________________________________
