"Honey, go fix that gutter downspout! We've had that on our to do list for ages, and I want it done before the end of the day!" Well, as you all know, at our age, my friend, and most of our friends, are retired and we do have the time to address such "Honey do's"…. So, I invited some neighborhood buddies over to help with the project. One is a sheet metal fabricator. One brought his welder. One brought beer and Nachos. One brought a grill and burgers. Took us about 6 hours, and 30-40 beers, but we got it done just as we were finishing off the last of the beer and burgers. As usual, the wife is still not happy !! Can't understand, cause all us guys love it!

Thanks Marge Sure, Marge! Here it is. There are two nuns. One of them is known as Sister Mathematical (SM) and the other one is known as Sister Logical (SL). It is getting dark and they are still far away from the convent. SM: Have you noticed that a man has been following us for the past thirty-eight and a half minutes? I wonder what he wants. SL: It's logical. He wants to rape us. SM: Oh, no! At this rate he will reach us in 15 minutes at the most. What can we possibly do? SL: The only logical thing to do of course is to walk faster. SM: It's not working. SL: Of course it's not working. The man did the only logical thing. He started to walk faster too. SM: So, what shall we do? At this rate he will reach us in one minute. SL: The only logical thing we can do is split. You go that way and I'll go this way. He cannot follow us both. The man decided to follow Sister Logical. Sister Mathematical arrives at the convent and is worried what has happened to Sister Logical. Then Sister Logical arrives. SM: Sister Logical! Thank God you are here! Tell me what happened! SL: The only logical thing happened. The man couldn't follow us both, so he followed me. SM: Yes, yes! But what happened then? SL:The only logical thing happened. I started to run as fast as I could and he started to run as fast as he could. SM: And? SL: The only logical thing happened. He reached me. SM: Oh, dear! What did you do? SL: The only logical thing to do. I lifted my dress up. SM: Oh, Sister! What did the man do? SL: The only logical thing to do. He pulled down his pants. SM: Oh, no! What happened then? SL: Isn't it logical,Sister? A nun with her dress up can run faster than a man with his pants down........ (And those of you who thought it would be dirty, say two Hail Mary's.....) ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dr. Christina Whitaker, 42, Gretchen Alldredge, 41, Coldwater, Florida Florida doctor and probationer charged with prescription fraud, again. Coldwater doctor Christina Whitaker, 42, was charged with eight felony drug charges on a warrant sought after a Coldwater Police investigation. Branch County District Court Judge Brent Weigle told her Friday morning in a video arraignment her bond would be $200,000 because of future charges. "There will be a significant number of similar complaints," said Coldwater Police Officer Jessica Elsaidi. Arrested with Whitaker was Gretchen Alldredge, 41, also charged in the scheme to obtain Adderall for Whitaker, who is addicted to the drug, according to the complaint. Elsaidi began her investigation following the arrest of Whitaker, after she obtained three pills of Vyvanse from an undercover informant in Hillsdale County. She was stopped in Branch County, and the drugs were located. Elsaidi went to the Michigan Automated Prescription System to find prescriptions for Adderall that Whitaker had written to other patients. The officer then went to Alldredge, who is on felony probation for possession of meth. The police report indicated that Alldredge admitted that she got the prescriptions for Whitaker. Whitaker paid her for them and gave Alldredge prescriptions for the painkiller Tramadol, Alldredge's drug of choice, in return. The drugs were obtained four times between August and October of 2016. Alldredge is charged with four counts of delivery of the Adderall. Whitaker is charged with conspiracy to obtain the drug. The charges are seven-year felonies. Both are charged with four counts of obtaining prescriptions by fraud, four year felonies. Alldredge is being held under a $100,000 bond. Preliminary proceedings are set for both April 4 and April 11. In 2007, Dr. Whitaker pleaded guilty to obtaining Adderall by fraud. Then in court, she said she had been told to use Adderall in medical school to help with her patient rapport. She said she turned to it again in a residency program and after she came to Coldwater. Adderall is a synthetic amphetamine. In January 2015, Aldredge was charged with possession of meth, after items were found with residue on them in her South Centennial Road home when her name appeared on pseudoephedrine purchase logs and police went to her home to talk with her. In April 2015, Alldredge was sentenced to 10 months jail and two years probation. A violation of probation is pending in Branch County Circuit Court. Both knew what to expect when caught. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: Not getting subscription at AOL Dear Webby I have not received your Humor site in over two months.

A little old lady is sitting on a bench in Miami Beach. A man walks over and sits down on the other end of the bench. After a few moments, the woman asks, "Are you a stranger here?" He replies, "I used to live here years ago." "So, where were you all these years?" "In prison," he says. "For what did they put you in prison?" He looks at her, and very quietly says, "I killed my wife." "Oh," says the woman. "So you're single..."

Lets take a trip or two or three......
A construction boss in Boston was interviewing men when along came a guy named Vinny from New York. I'm not hiring any wise-ass New Yorker, the foreman thought, so he made up a test hoping that Vinny wouldn't be able to answer the questions, and he'd be able to refuse him the job without getting into a dispute. "Here's your first question," the foreman said. "Without using numbers, represent the number 9." "Widout numbiz?" Vinny says. "Dat's easy," and he proceeds to draw 3 trees. "What's this?" the boss asks. The New Yorker replies, "Ain't you got no brains? Tree 'n Tree 'n Tree makes nine. Faghedaboutit......" "Fair enough," says the Boss. "Here's your second question. Use the same rules, but this time use the number 99." Vinny stares into space for a minute, then picks up the picture he has drawn and makes a smudge on each tree. "Dare ya go, Buddy." The Boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you get that to represent 99?" Vinny says "Each a da tree's is dirty now! So it's dirty tree 'n dirty tree' n dirty tree-dat's 99". The Boss is getting worried he's going to have to hire the New Yorker, so he says, "All right, last question. Same rules but this time use 100." Vinny stares into space again, then picks up the picture once again, makes a little mark at the base of each tree and says, "Dare ya go, Mac, a hunnert." The Boss looks at the picture for a moment and says, "You must be nuts if you think that represents 100!" New York Vinny leans forward and points to the marks at the base of the trees. "A little doggie comes along and takes a crap on each a dem trees, so now ya got dirty tree an' a turd, dirty tree an' a turd, dirty tree an' a turd - which makes one hundred. Bada boom, bada bing.
