He does not have to be an Einstein, to know that this guy, is a Republican. So, he shouts over to the bartender so loudly that everyone can hear, 'Drinks for everyone in here, bartender, but not for the Republican.' Soon after the drinks have been handed out, the Republican gives him a big smile, waves at him then says, 'Thank you!' in an equally loud voice. This infuriates the union boss. The union boss once again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the Republican. As before, this does not seem to bother the Republican. He continues to smile, and again yells, 'Thank you!'

The union boss asks the bartender, 'What the hell is the matter, with that Republican? I have ordered three rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar but him, and all the silly ass does, is smile and thanks me. Is he nuts?' 'Nope,' replies the bartender.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lashondra Deniece Sandoval-Martin, 31, Amarillo, Texas Amarillo National Bank robbery suspect arrested Police have identified the suspect who attempted to rob Amarillo National Bank's North Branch location. Lashondra Deniece Sandoval-Martin, 31, entered the bank, located at 712 North Taylor St., around 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 21, stating that she was going to commit a robbery. Immediately after that, a male bank employee entered the room. When the female suspect turned toward the male, her "weapon," a large water gun, made contact with him accidentally. He realized it was not a real gun and tried to detain or control the suspect. Sandoval-Martin resisted and broke away, letting the plastic water gun clattering to the floor as she fled back out the front door. She was detained as she tried to enter a pickup. When police arrived, officers saw a female matching the description of the robbery suspect approaching or getting into a white Dodge flatbed style pickup that was parked in front of the bank and took her into custody. Officers learned that the white Dodge pickup had just been stolen from a business on Amarillo Boulevard East a few minutes earlier. An employee of the company that owns the Dodge had left it running or left the keys in the vehicle, which allowed the suspect to take it and use it in this robbery. She was booked into the Potter County Detention Center for aggravated robbery and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. The driver of the Dodge has not been charged. I wonder who DeAunt was, who gave Lashondra DeNiece her middle name! ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Daniel Re: not receiving your daily site Dear Webby I am not receiving your site in my email.i have done everything you taught me.it,s not in the block sender list,I contacted my isp,I canceled and reinstalled.i can get it on the net but thatís all.any clue? daniel Dear Daniel You have not done any of that.

> From Dianne: When I was a child my family used to sometimes take our vacations in British Columbia. We had a favorite place to visit, mostly because of the fine fishing. It was at a Lake that was about 30 miles long and a 1/2 mile wide. While we were around our campfire in the evening the local Indians would go from camp to camp selling their wares. They would also tell of the legends of the area. This one legend always stuck in my mind. It seemed that on this particular Lake two Indian Tribes made their homes. They were, however, at war with one another from years before. There was an Indian maiden in one camp who was in love with a young brave in the other camp. They used to stand, on the shore, each on their respective side of the lake, and chant Indian love calls to each other... even though they were warned by their chiefs that nothing could ever come of it. One day they just could not stand being apart any longer. That evening, on a cold spring night, they each jumped into the lake and swam towards each other in the moonlight. When they reached each other in the center of the lake, they embraced and got a bit carried away. They lost track of time, got hypothermia and drowned. This act so impressed the brave's tribe that they named the lake after the young man. I will never forget those wonderful vacations that we spent at "Lake Stupid".

____________________________________________________ A bride called to make a change to her wedding registry. It is common, almost expected, that a bride will change some- thing on her registry at least once (dishes, color of towels, etc.). The Customer Service Rep told her that J.C. Penney would be happy to make the change. He asked if the bride wanted to change the dishes or the linens or the crystal... The bride said, "No, no, keep all that. I just want to change the name of the groom." ___________________________________________________
