Good Morning, ,
Today is Thursday, January 19

Thank you, Attila

My car, a 1991 Chrysler LeBaron, did not start today.
I worked on it for hours, and a friend will try tomorrow.
It has been a good car for a long time, but sure has me
worried now.

Have FUN!

He took her to his lavish apartment where he soon discovered she was not a tramp, but was well groomed and apparently very intelligent. Hoping to impress her, he began showing her his collection of expensive paintings, first editions by famous authors and offered her a glass of wine. He asked whether she preferred Port or Sherry and she said, "Oh, Sherry by all means. To me, it's the nectar of the gods. Just looking at it in a crystal-clear decanter fills me with a glorious sense of anticipation. When the stopper is removed and the gorgeous liquid is poured into my glass, I inhale the enchanting aroma and I'm lifted on the wings of ecstasy. It seems as though I'm about to drink a magic potion and my whole being begins to glow. The sound of a thousand violins being softly played fills my ears and I'm transported into another world.

"For example," he said, "when I entered my chambers today, I was positive that I had my gold watch in my pocket. But then I remembered that I left in on the nightstand in my bedroom." When the judge returned home that evening, his wife asked him "Why so much urgency for your watch? Isn't sending three men to pick it up for you a bit extreme?" "What?" said the judge, "I didn't send anyone for my watch, let alone three people. What did you do?" "I gave it to the first one," said the wife, "he knew exactly where it was." ______________________________________________________ Too Late! ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Angela Maria Diaz, 31, Annaheim, California Wife Of U.S. Marshal charged with Diabolical Rape Frame-Up Of his Ex-Lover The wife of a U.S. marshal has been charged with kidnapping and falsely reporting a crime in a bizarre rape-fantasy frame-up of her husband’s former girlfriend, Southern California officials revealed Monday. Investigators say Angela Maria Diaz, 31, who then lived in Anaheim, posed as the victim of a fabricated Craigslist rape fantasy ad in a bid to land rival Michelle Suzanne Hadley, 30, in prison. Diaz married a U.S. marshal, referred to as John Doe in court documents, a year ago. Hadley was his girlfriend from 2013 to 2015. Diaz tried to make it appear that Hadley, of nearby Ontario, had placed the fake ad last June to entice men to rape Diaz, according to investigators. The ad said Diaz wanted to indulge in her rape fantasies and supplied photos of Diaz and information about her routines. The ad encouraged men to have forcible sex with Diaz, "even if she screamed or resisted". Diaz reported to police that men had appeared at her home intending to rape her and that one had attacked her but fled before police arrived. In an apparent effort to bolster her false claims, Diaz showed police her torn shirt and redness on her neck and breast, the DA’s office said. Diaz had reported to Anaheim police earlier that Hadley sent several threatening emails — and obtained a restraining order against Hadley — but investigators said Diaz had sent the threats to herself. Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas called it a "diabolical scheme." Investigators initially believed Hadley was responsible for the false ad and for the danger to Diaz, and Hadley was charged with 10 felonies, including stalking and attempted forcible rape. If convicted, she faced up to life in prison, noted KTLA-TV in Los Angeles. She was held in lieu of $1 million bail from July to October, until her attorney, Michael Guisti, helped uncover information that authorities said exonerated her. As important as the filing of charges against Ms. Diaz, is the dismissal of the previous complaint and full exoneration of Michelle Hadley, Rackauckas said in a statement. Ms. Hadley is cleared in every possible way in the courtroom and in the court of public opinion. It should be clear in the media and in cyberspace. Ms. Hadley is an innocent victim of a diabolical scheme. Guisti told the Los Angeles Times that Hadley was a wide- eyed, very bubbly young woman with a lust for life whose family had to borrow money for her defense. To have her so thoroughly exonerated by the district attorney is a huge relief to her. Diaz was arrested Jan. 6 in Phoenix and was charged with two felony counts each of kidnapping (linked to false reports that landed Hadley in jail) and false imprisonment by menace, fraud or deceit, one felony count of perjury, one felony count of grand theft and two felony counts of forgery, among a number of other charges, according to the Orange County district attorney’s office. She also is accused of faking cervical cancer and a pregnancy, pretending to be an attorney and forging doctor’s notes during the alleged scheme. Diaz is awaiting extradition to Orange County. All charges were dropped against Hadley on Monday. This has been a huge nightmare for me, she told reporters as she left the courthouse. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frank Re: Text editor Dear Webby, Is there a simple text editor that doesn't have the problems that NotePad and WordPad have ? (messing up file name extensions, putting formatting info into the text, failing on long files, unpredictable searches, etc.) Preferably one that does not break the bank. Frank Dear Frank A very basic one is NoteMaid. You can download it free from http://webby.com/downloads/notemaid.zip If you want one that uses tabs for different files, and even split screen for easy copying from one file to another, there is NoteTab from http://notetab.com They have a free version, and a paid version, which won't break the bank. Try the free version first. The paid version might be a bit overwhelming with all the included tools. It does everything you need for writing a series of books or a university thesis, but if you simply ignore all the tools, it is a very powerful text editor. I have been using it for about 9 years for the Humor Letter. Have FUN! DearWebby
An auto mechanic received a repair order that read: "Check for clunking sound when going around corners." Taking the car out for a test drive, he made a right turn, and a moment later he heard a 'clunk.' He then made a left turn and again heard a 'clunk.' Back at the shop he opened the car's trunk, and soon discovered the problem. He returned the repair order to the service manager with the notation, "Removed dead pumpkin from trunk".

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Recycling Political Campaign Signs My biggest pet peeve around here is that after the election our city is littered with election signs and issue signs that no one ever gets around to picking up. So here is my solution. Everyone out there in Thrifty tip land probably has had a yard sale or two so here is my deal, grab up those signs and recycle them for your next yard sale. The ones that are just a plastic sleeve over a wire base can be reused by sliding off the plastic sleeve. Cut down a white kitchen trash bag and sizing it down to fit on the white frame snugly. Use big stick on letters to tell about your next sale. The ones that are rigid foam board can be spray painted to cover campaign slogans and your info stenciled on instead. Recycling at its best I say. By Debra in CO

____________________________________________________ A young private sought permission from his Commanding Officer to leave camp the following weekend. "You see," he explained, "my wife's expecting." "Oh..." said the Officer, "I understand. Go ahead and tell your wife that I wish her luck." The following week the same soldier was back again with the same explanation: "My wife's expecting." The Officer looked surprised. "Still expecting?" he said, "Well, well, my boy, you must be pretty bothered. Of course you can have the week-end off." When the same soldier appeared again the third week, however, the Officer lost his temper. "Don't tell me your wife is still expecting!" he bellowed. "Yes sir!" said the soldier resolutely, "She's still expecting." "What in heaven is she expecting?" yelled the Officer. "Me." said the soldier simply. ____________________________________________________

There was a little old lady standing at a corner. She had both hands holding her hat on while the wind blew her dress up around her waist. A dignified southern gentleman came up and said, "Ma'am, you should be ashamed of yourself, letting your skirt blow around, being indecent, while both hands hold your hat." She said, "Look mister, everything down there is seventy years old. This hat is brand new!"
