He realized the truth in that and started laughing and shouting as he skipped down the sidewalk. "I'm free, I'm free!" he shouted. "So what," said a little girl. "I'm almoft four." ______________________________________________________ Peter and Gladys were looking at a new living room suite in the furniture store. Peter says to the salesman, "We really like it, but I don't think we can afford it." The salesman says, "You just make a small down payment... then you don't make another payment for six months." Gladys turned on him with her hands on her hips and demanded, "Who told you about us!?" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rashard Williams, 28, Austin, Texas Texas hijacker of occupied ambulance arrested Police have charged the man who allegedly hijacked an Austin-Travis County EMS ambulance on Christmas Day. Court documents allege Rashard Williams, 28, took the ambulance while it was parked near the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless (ARCH) on Dec. 25. The affidavit for Williams states Williams was arrested on an unrelated charge on Dec. 27, and that his description and clothing matched that of the person seen on HALO cameras taking the ambulance. The ambulance’s crew was tending to a patient when Williams allegedly got behind the wheel and drove it to South Austin before fleeing on foot. "Completely unexpected a very rare event, and a surprise to everyone," Austin-Travis County EMS Captain Rick Rutledge told KVUE on Monday. Rutledge said the paramedics strapped in the patient during the ride. "They put on shoulder straps, they got him buckled in, that's actually the safest place in the ambulance is being secured to the stretcher," he said. Rutledge added the driver even used sirens while driving, and that EMS is not sure the driver was aware of the medics and patients in the back of the ambulance. "The back of the ambulance you can see is completely isolated so there was never a conversation or any ability to question or speak to them so we really don't know what their motives were," said Rutledge. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Terry Re: Detail view in File Explorer Dear Webby, I am sure you will agree that Windows has caused more frustration and anger than even dope. Each incarnation is more evil than the previous one and most definitely indicate that they are on bath salts. Just look at the way the file explorer always reverts to a DIFFERENT mode each time you start it, but NEVER to the Detail mode, and you have to mess around and waste time to get it into Detail mode. Do you know of a way to defeat their evil insanity and get around that? Terry Dear Terry You are probably right about bath salts. By default the file explorer now goes to Libraries. Well, I don't know anybody who uses libraries. And they are in a stupid place to start out with. Also, by default, it does not show TOOLS on top anymore. BAD DOPE! I make desktop shortcuts to go to the folders, that I use and go to dozens of times per day. That cuts out all the dopey rigamarole, Then, to fix the default to DETAIL, I shuffle it to there, then, if TOOLS is not visible, go at it via VIEW. Climb through that whole tree and correct everything, that looks stupid, like hiding file extensions. BAD DOPE!!! Once you have corrected everything, go into the Folder Options and hit APPLY TO FOLDERS. It will whine a bit, but it will let you do it. After that, close the explorer and open a new one. It SHOULD open in the same location as the last used one, and you should have DETAILS mode, just as if they had not screwed it up. You still have to make desktop shortcuts to the most used locations. I make one for each drive, and one for each location, that I frequently go to. You can drag those onto the TaskBar in the order of use frequency. It is easy enough to make nice, colorful icons for each of them. Have FUN! DearWebby
Kathy's wedding turned out to be a real family reuinion. Even her weird cousin Sean from San Francisco showed up. There were too many people to fit into the little church, and since was snowing and raining and blowing quite ferociously, a last minute decision was made to hold the ceremony in the undergound parkade across the street. A priest was ready in his ornate surplice and cassock ready to proceed the march into the parkade and begin the ceremony. He was carrying a briefcase with his book and paraphenalia and he was swinging the incense pot which had smoke coming from it. Sean was seen sidling up to the priest and saying: "Darling, I love your dress, but did you know that your purse is on fire!"

Daily tip from Old Dry Goods If you buy rice or pasta in large economy size quantities, then you probably know that when you get to the bottom of the bags or boxes, you can't mix that stuff with freshly bought stuff, because it takes more water and more time. If you mix it, some will be crispy and some will be mushy. Fresh rice and pasta is not nearly as dry, so that it weighs more in the store. Don't throw the old goods out. Save them in empty coffee cans for the next backpacking trip. You'll get almost twice the COOKED rice for the same amount of backpacked weight. Just use more water and cook it a bit longer.

When he got home, he couldn't tell his wife that he had spoken on sex, so he said he had discussed horseback riding with the members. A few days later, she ran into some men at the shopping center and they complimented her on the speech her husband had made. She said, "Yes, I heard. I was surprised about the subject matter, as he's only tried it twice. The first time he got so sore he could hardly walk, and the second time he fell off." ____________________________________________________

>From Nancy: My 12-year-old daughter asked me, "Mom, do you have a baby picture of yourself? I need it for a school project." I gave her one without thinking to ask what the project was. A few days later I was in her classroom for a parent- teacher meeting when Inoticed my face pinned to a mural the students had created. The title of their project was: "The oldest thing in my house."
