And then she said... "I was worried that my mechanic might try to rip me off. I was soo relieved when he told me that all I needed was blinker fluid. Naturally, I got the organic, biodegradable kind, even though it was a bit more expensive." ______________________________________________________ The obituary editor of our newspaper is not one to admit his mistakes easily.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Derrickka Dixon, 28, Toledo. Ohio Ohio Robber Attacked 7-Eleven Employee with Nacho Cheese After issuing an appeal to the public, Ohio cops have identified the woman who allegedly threw a container of nacho cheese at a 7-Eleven owner who caught her stealing merchandise. In a Facebook post yesterday, the Toledo Police Department included three surveillance images of the suspect, who was wearing a Spiderman t-shirt, shorts, and blue socks with white stars. According to a police report, after being confronted by Jitendra Singh, 49, the woman attacked the 7-Eleven owner, tearing money from his hands before throwing "a container of nacho cheese" at him. The woman then “fled in a maroon Chevy with a black male.” Upon posting an “Attempt to identify” notice, cops determined that the suspect in the August 18 incident was Derrickka Dixon, a 28-year-old Toledo resident. In comments on the Toledo Police Department’s Facebook page, Dixon’s husband Tray, 33, claimed that the police account was “all wrong. She didn’t steal nothing.” He added that, “The media lie every day.” In addition to issuing a robbery arrest warrant for Dixon, cops are also seeking to collar her spouse, who allegedly threatened to kill Singh during the 7-Eleven incident (and was driving the Chevy). Dixon is seen above in a mug shot taken after an arrest last year. Singh was not injured by the airborne nacho cheese. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sharon RE: Taking Computer apart Dear Webby, In this letter in the tech dept you said it was a good idea to vacuum out your computer. How do you do that? I really am hesitant to take anything apart for fear I won't get it back together right. Thanks, Sharon Dear Sharon Turn the computer off, but don't unplug it. It's safer if it is properly grounded. Don't unplug anything, but look at the back of the computer. You will see that most of the plugs and cables are closer to one of the side walls than the other. They are closer to the "floor" side. The opposite side is the "lid" side. Usually the lid has thumbscrews or larger screws than the floor side, or a locking lever. Unscrew the two or three screws on the lid or push the locking lever. Then you can slide it backwards and open it easily. Set it aside flat on the floor. If you don't, it will fall over and scare you right when you are under the table. When that happens, it's quite hilarious for the onlookers. Now take a vaccum cleaner and put the narrow crevice tool on it, if you have one. Vacuum out the inside of the computer, preferably without quite touching anything in there. The dust and the dustbunnies and spiderwebs are all lightweight and vacuum up easily. Then put the vacuum away so that you don't trip over it, find the lid and re-attach it. Carefully empty the vaccum cleaner and retrieve the vacuumed up lid screws and use them to secure the lid. That's all there is to it. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ The Irish priest was at the altar one dreary Sunday morning, addressing his congregation with a vehement sermon that alcohol was the work of the devil. "As an example," he stated during his sermon, "If you were to lead a donkey to a bowl of water and a bowl of whiskey, from which would he drink?" A grizzled old Mick at the back of the church spoke up: "Aye, Father, for sure he'd drink from the water." The priest, elated, said, "Very good, my son. And can you tell me WHY he'd drink from the water?" The Irishman at the back of the church replied, "Sure I can tell ye' why, Father. Because he's an ass." ___________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Summer Fresh Tomato Pie for One By ~gloria [95 Posts, 152 Comments] This is a very juicy pie. It's tomatoes after all, so be prepared for drippage! If you don't care for tomato skins like me, they pull right off with your fork. Just double the recipe and use a regular pie plate, if you want a big pie to share. Hope you will love this as much as I do. All you need to make this scrumptious summer treat is pictured below. Prep Time: Approx. 30 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Total Time: Approx. 1 hour Yield: 1 or 2 servings Ingredients: 4 -5 unbaked crescent rolls. 1-2 fresh tomatoes, sliced 1/4" thick. 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar crumbled bacon bits (optional) finely sliced basil (optional, but who wouldn't?) Kosher salt fresh ground pepper Steps: Coat a #3 (the little guy) cast iron skillet with cooking spray. Press the crescent roll dough onto the bottom and sides of the skillet; joining any gaps with your fingertips. Layer tomato slices to cover the bottom. Sprinkle the basil, salt and pepper over the tomato. Add bacon, or not, as you choose. Mix the mayo and cheese together and plop on top of the tomatoes. Spread to completely cover the tomatoes. Bake at 375 degrees F. on the rack just below middle for about 30 mins. Watch for browning of crescent edges and cheesy top. That's when you know it's ready. Summer Fresh Tomato Pie for One Allow to cool maybe 15 mins. if you can stand the wait. I usually enjoy the first half right there at the counter. ______________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ Travelling through Pennsylvania can be interesting. Locally, you can find yourself in Frugality, but you might go through Coupon to get there. You can find Dallas, but don't expect any Cowboys. Likewise, you won't find any Bronocs in Denver. There is no palace in Buckingham, nor any troops in Lebanon. You can attend school at Indiana University of Pennsylvania or you can go to Wyoming and California without actually crossing a state border. While the Amish may be known for their conservatism, the town names are often anything but that. We could start with West Middlesex, but why start in the middle. You can go all the way to Intercourse, but that won't take you to Paradise—you can't get there from here. Watch out, though, if you get lost on the way to Paradise, you may end up in Blue Ball, and that could be painful. Worse yet, after driving all day, you may end up with only Bird-In-Hand. No street signs to help you there, and the fun is whatever you make of it. ___________________________________________________
