Two church members were going door to door,
and knocked on the door of a woman who was
not happy to see them. She told them in no
uncertain terms that she did not want to hear
their message and slammed the door in their
faces. To her surprise, however, the door did
not close and, in fact, bounced back open.
She tried again, really put her back into it,
and slammed the door again with the same result
- the door bounced back open.
Convinced these rude young people were sticking
their foot in the door, she reared back to give it a
slam that would teach them a lesson, when one of
them yelled, "Ma'am, it looks like you knocked out
your cat with the first slam. If you are going to keep
doing that, you are going to get some very expensive
Thanks to Ross for this one:
A kleptomaniac woman had been caught shoplifting in a
supermarket and had to appear in court, taking along her
long-suffering husband for marital support.
The prosecution proved that the theft had taken place so
the judge told her that, considering her record, he was
forced to impose a jail term.
"This time you stole a can of tomatoes. Let us suppose
that there were six tomatoes in the can. Do you agree?"
The woman agreed.
"Then I sentence you to six nights in jail."
The husband jumped to his feet , addressing the judge,
"Your honor, may I approach the bench?"
"Well," said his honor, this is somewhat unusual but
I will make an exception in this case. You may approach
The husband wasted no time getting there and, leaning
forward, he said in a low voice,
"She also stole a can of peas, your honor."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD
has been earned by
Sweating dope mule arrested in Marathon, Florida
A Cape Coral man told police he was delivering drugs to
friends in Key West in exchange for a free vacation before
being pulled over for speeding in Marathon Tuesday.
Tyler Doidge, 21, was stopped just before 8 p.m. for going
almost twice the speed limit near mile marker 48, according
to the arrest report from Monroe County Sheriff’s Office
Deputy Matthew Cory.
Doidge told Cory he was aware of warning signs that the 35
mph limit is strictly enforced in the area and was on his
way to Key West for vacation. After Cory smelled marijuana
and told Doidge he was going to search the 2008 Buick
Lacrosse, he noted in the report Doidge began to develop
beads of sweat on his forehead.
“This is not normal behavior since the outside temperature
[was] near 75 degrees. I have a protective vest and long
pants on and I was not sweating,” Cory wrote. “Doidge was
wearing a tank top and shorts. On the same evening I
conducted three other traffic stops and none of those
drivers appeared to be sweating.”
During the search, Cory wrote he found a black backpack with
84.5 grams (about 3 ounces) of marijuana in plastic bags.
Underneath the divider between the trunk bottom and the
spare tire was a glass jar inside of which were 318 ecstasy
pills with smiley faces stamped on both sides.
Doige said his friends forgot the drugs on the mainland and
in exchange for the delivery, they’d pay for his entire
trip. He also told Cory he’d smoked some of the marijuana
before the drive.
“When asked to rate it from 1 to 10, he advised that it was
an 8,” Cory wrote of the pot’s quality. “He advised that
this cannabis was usually sold for around $200 an ounce.”
Doige was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent
to sell, possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana,
possession of 10 grams or more of phenethylamines (ecstasy),
and use of paraphernalia to transport drugs, all felonies.
He was also ticketed for speeding. Doige was transported to
the jail in Marathon without bond.

Re: Restore Recycle bin icon
My ex klutzed around on my computer, supposedly
un-installing some of his programs, and since then the
recycle bin icon is gone. While it's easy enough to
delete stuff with the delete key, the odd time I need
to restore a mistakenly deleted file. For that I need
access to the recycle bin.
Anybody around here whom I asked, said to just
re-install Windows and that would fix it. Isn't there
a better way ?
In Windows 7 and 8
Go to Control Panel \ Personalize (or right-click on the
desktop and select Personalize), and then choose the link
for “Change Desktop Icons” on the left-hand side.
Now you can chose the icons you want back on the desktop by
checking the box next to the name:
Click the Apply button, and you should see the icon show up
on the desktop immediately.
Just to be a nuisancee, it is slightly different in W10:
First, right-click on the desktop and choose Personalize.
Now select Themes on the left-hand menu, and then once you
are there, you can select Desktop icon settings under the
“Related Settings” section.
And now you can click the checkboxes for the icons that you

Making a Popsicle Stick Toy Harmonica
By ShirleyE [143 Posts, 100 Comments]
Just 2 sticks and a bit of plastic makes this fun toy. It's
not the most tuneful of musical instruments. In fact it only
plays one squeaky little note, but for youngish children
it's a lot of fun.
3 wooden lolly/Popsicle sticks
2 small hair elastics or loom bands
small piece of cellophane
Optional sticky backed decorations
Snip a little off the end of one of the sticks.
It will probably splinter into smaller pieces, but that's
Take a small piece of cellophane packaging and cut it to fit
the length of a stick.
Lay it on top of one of the sticks.
Place a piece of the splintered wood on top of the
cellophane at each end.
Lay the last wooden stick on top.
Secure each end with an elastic band.
Decorate with sticky back jewels if you like.
Put it to your mouth and blow through the gap between the
sticks. The cellophane will vibrate and make a noise

There are several men in the locker room of a private club
Suddenly a cell phone that was on one of the benches rings.
A man picks it up and the following conversation ensues:
"Honey, It's me. Are you at the club?"
"Great! I am at the mall 2 blocks from where you are. I saw
a beautiful mink coat... It is absolutely gorgeous!!
Can I buy it?"
"What's the price?"
"Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it that much..."
"Ahhh and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership
and saw the 2017 models.
I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman and he
gave me a really good price ... and since we need to
exchange the BMW that we bought last year..."
"What price did he quote you?"
"OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
"Great! Before we hang up, something else..."
"It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank
account.... and I stopped by the real estate agent this
morning and I saw the house we had looked at last year.
It's on sale!! Remember? The one with a pool, English
Garden, acre of park area, beachfront property..."
"How much are they asking?"
"Only $850,000... a magnificent price, and I see that
we have that much in the bank to cover the downpayment..."
"Well, than go ahead and buy it, but just bid $820,000.
"OK, sweetie... Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!"
"Bye... I do too..."
The man hangs up, closes the phone's flap and raises
his hand while holding the phone and asks to all those
"Does anyone know who this phone belongs to?
