When his mother returned with a friend, she noticed that Johnny had already strained the tea. The two women then sipped their tea happily while having lunch. "Was it hard finding the tea strainer in the kitchen?" Johnny's mother asked. "I couldn't find it Ma, so I used the fly swatter," he replied. His mother nearly fainted, so Johnny hastily added: "Don't get excited, Ma, I used the old one!" ---------------------- That should have cleaned up the old flyswatter quite nicely!

>From Barbarella Two brawny men came to my house to install some new floor covering in the kitchen. Once they had moved the stove and refrigerator out of the way, it was not long before the job was done. As they were getting ready to leave, I asked them to put the heavy appliances back in place. The two men demanded $45 for this service, stating it was not in their contract. I really had no choice but to pay them. Shortly after they left, however, the doorbell rang. It was the two men. They asked me to move my car, which was blocking their van. I told them my fee: $45. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Penny for this one: WOMAN SUES HOSPITAL A recent article in the Kentucky Post reported that a woman, one Anne Maynard, has sued St. Luke's Hospital, saying that after her husband was treated there recently, he had lost all interest in sex. A hospital spokesman replied, "Mr. Maynard was actually admitted into Ophthalmology - all we did was correct his eyesight." ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Convicted sex offender asks mother of 14-year-old 'I want her, what do you want for it?' Ricky James Overhulser, 53, Lubbock, Texas A Lubbock man has been arrested and charged with attempt to compel prostitution after he allegedly approached a 14- year-old girl at a 7-11 gas station on Parkway Drive on Tuesday. The man has also been identified as a registered sex offender. According to Lubbock police documents, just after 1:30 p.m., officers responded to the gas station after reports of an attempted kidnapping. The victim, a 14-year-old girl, was fueling up her mother's car while her mother paid inside. Reports say 53-year-old Ricky James Overhulser pulled up next to the girl and told her to get into his car. The girl refused and Overhulser told her again to get in his car and she refused a second time. He then asked her if she "dated." She told him "no" and went into the store to get her mother. "She got pretty startled, as a 14-year-old would," said Lt. Ray Mendoza with the Lubbock Police Department. Police say when the mother came outside, Overhulser had driven away. She was finishing fueling up her car when he returned, pulled up close to her car and fanned cash while he asked, "how much for your daughter." The girl's mother called him a "dirty old man" and let him know she was calling police. Overhulser drove away in a white Pontiac passenger car. Mendoza says the mother and daughter were able to get a license plate number. "The detectives get called to the scene, they immediately go looking for him, try to hunt him down," he says. "We put out a broadcast to all our local officers. We reached out to DPS and the Sheriff's Department to be on the lookout." Enough information was gathered to obtain an arrest warrant late Wednesday night. "He had a couple of municipal court warrants, so they were at least, trying to arrest him while the investigators continued to work the case," Mendoza explains. Overhulser was already in the Lubbock County Jail on unrelated charges and was re-arrested on the new charges. Overhulser has been a registered sex offender since 2000, where his victim was a 16-year-old female, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety sex offender registry. He spent 10 years in jail, from 2000 until 2010. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sharon RE: USB cable connected Dear Webby, Thanks for the fun letter today. I finally did invest in a digital camera. Have just begun to read the book. I have 2 questions. 1) Would it be ok to connect the usb cable to the pc & leave it plugged in even when not connected to the camera? My connection is at the base of the pc which is on the floor & it is sometimes difficult to get down to connect it. 2) I haven't tried sending the pic to the pc yet so I can email them to family & friends but am curious as to what size would good to send. Some pics I have received have are so big they seem to take so long to download. Any size suggestions? Thanks so much for your help. This will be a new experience for me. Sharon Dear Sharon Yes, sure you can leave the cable plugged into the PC. Just put the open end into a cup, in case any chips drip out. Just kidding about anything dripping out. It is just an extension cord. Go to the Dollar Store and buy a 4 or 7 outlet USB hub, and a USB extesion cord. The camera cable usually has male ends on both sides. What you need is a proper extension cord with a female end on one side for the USB hub to plug into. Then glue the USB hub to the side of the monitor with a strip of double sided tape or crazy glue, and snug up the extension cord with a pretty ribbon or twist tie to make sure you don't roll over it with your chair or trip over it. Now you can plug the camera cable and anything else into the USB hub without crawling around under your desk and bashing your head when you stand up. For picture size, save the original indo a folder named Originals, and save resized versions with a slightly different name. Rename the Original from it's silly number to for example SunsetJune2016-L.jpg The -L is for Large. Name the resized version SunsetJune2016-.jpg, and if you make a small thumbnail, name that one SunsetJune2016.jpg. For mailing picture a width of 600 is ideal. If you have a web site, you can put monitor size pictures up there at 1024x768 or similar, and have a small picture in the mail linking to it, like I do with the Humor letter. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Thanks to Faye for this one: I did my nurse's training at a hospital in Liverpool, England. My fellow students and I had little money for meals, so we ate the awful food provided at the hospital complex. We often took our breaks in the kitchen, and sometimes kindly vistors would give us some of the treats they had brought for patients. One night a woman brought a pork pie to the kitchen and said to me, "Would you eat this up, love?" Delighted at the offer, another student and I devoured every crumb. Soon our benefactor returned, however, and asked, "Is me 'usband's pie 'ot yet, dearie?" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Removing Permanent Marker from a Car If you want it to be EASY, grab a sponge and pour some NAIL POLISH REMOVER on the sponge, and wipe it gently or angrily, depending on how you feel, it will be like erasing writing on the white board.

Robin Williams Flag Tribute
____________________________________________________ When my neighbor's son Billie came home from college for the summer, it only took him 2 seconds to recreate the "look and feel" of his dorm room. He opend his suitcase and his backpack, and rotated rapidly about three times. He used to be quite a snappy dresser in highschool, and his parents were quite disenchanted when they noticed that his dressing style had dropped to about the same level as the organization in his room. Over dinner, they tried to touch on the informal versus formal dress codes that life outside of college might require. Billie, however, shared his own firmly held dress code guidelines: 1. informal: sock (s) not required 2. semiformal: two socks required 3. formal: both socks must match ____________________________________________________ Several women were visiting an elderly friend who was ill. After awhile, they rose to leave and told her; "We will keep you in our prayers." "Just wash the dishes in the kitchen," the ailing woman said, "I can do my own praying." ____________________________________________________
