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 vet bills!" ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ 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 bench." 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." ______________________________________________________ Cardinal-Gynandromorph ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tyler Doidge, 21, Cape Coral, Florida 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. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Iris Re: Restore Recycle bin icon Dear Webby 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 ? Thanks Iris /i> Dear Iris 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 want back. You should see the icons show up as soon as you click Apply. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com 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. Supplies: 3 wooden lolly/Popsicle sticks 2 small hair elastics or loom bands small piece of cellophane scissors Optional sticky backed decorations Steps: Snip a little off the end of one of the sticks. It will probably splinter into smaller pieces, but that's OK. 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

Well, this is different.
There are several men in the locker room of a private club after exercising. Suddenly a cell phone that was on one of the benches rings. A man picks it up and the following conversation ensues: "Hello?" "Honey, It's me. Are you at the club?" "Yes." "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?" "Only $1,500.00" "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?" "Only $76,000..." "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options." "Great! Before we hang up, something else..." "What?" "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?" "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 present....: "Does anyone know who this phone belongs to?
