______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Darnell Washington, 38, Houston, Texas Dad reappears several days after leaving 6 year old son in the car. Darnell Washington pulled up to an adult bookstore, left the SUV running, and headed inside. Hours passed, and the man never came back. Meanwhile, his six-year-old son remained in the car. According to Click2Houston, six hours went by, and nobody returned for the boy. Even worse, he had nothing to eat or drink. As ABC13 reports, Diamond Hawkins was working at a tattoo shop when he finally saw the child sitting alone in the vehicle: “He was sitting in the truck and I didn't pay much attention because we have a business next door that sells cars. I thought his dad was next door buying a car or something.” Eventually, the owner of the adult bookstore saw the boy walking around the parking lot and went in search of his parents. According to the Houston Chronicle, the owner went inside the tattoo parlor and asked if the child belonged to anyone, but nobody knew who he was. At that point, he and Hawkins knew something was wrong. According to Click2Houston, Hawkins said the young boy couldn't provide them with any information: “He didn’t know where his dad was. He didn’t know where he lived, or his phone number, or anything. We looked for his dad and couldn’t find him anywhere, so somebody called the cops.” Another tattoo shop employee, John Ridley, made sure the boy was comfortable while they waited for the police to arrive. They eventually got the frightened child to talk: "He was really shy at first. He had a little food and we put him in front of the TV and he got accustomed to us. He opened up a bit and told us his name.” When nobody came to pick the six-year-old boy up from the police, he was placed with Texas Child Protective Services. As for Washington, he didn't show back up to the parking lot for several days. When he finally did return, Hawkins said Washington appeared to be more concerned about his vehicle than his son: “He came in and was asking about his car. Wasn't too concerned about the kid but said, 'Hey did you have a car towed, where's my car.'” Washington admitted to police that he was drinking on the day he left his child. He said he had “four shots of whiskey” and “four to five shots of tequila.” He explained that he passed out behind the store in an alley, woke up, couldn't find his child, and passed out again. He eventually found out where the child he left behind was when he called his own father, who let him know the police had him. Mardee Paige was at the tattoo parlor with her best friend celebrating her 70th birthday when the little boy was rescued from wandering around the parking lot. Paige said: “That person in my mind shouldn't have a child. Who knows what would have happened had somebody not brought him over here.” Washington was charged with child endangerment. His court date set for April 11. The young boy is now staying with friends. There was no mention of a mother in any report. She might be dead or in jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Danielle Re: Telemarketers Dear Webby I have been told not to be rude to telemarketers, just in case they are potential clients. I know you have a dangerously wicked sense of humor and have had some good tips about that in the past, but unfortunately I did not save them. What do you recommend? Danielle Dear Danielle Just tell the telemarketer that they should be talking to Farley Marblemouth and to hold on. Then, before they can reply to that, put them on hold. Eventually you'll hear the beeping that indicates a dead line. An alternative is to tell them that you, or whoever they want to talk to are too busy to listen to telemarketers and that they should send an email. They never do. If Call Indicator shows the name of a state, it is forged by a telemarketer. I don't even bother listening to their crap, I hit On/Off faster than they can get one word out. Have FUN! DearWebby
Redneck Manners Entertaining in Your Home a. A centerpiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist. b. Do not allow the dog to eat at the table, even if his manners are better than those of your mother-in-law. Dining Out a. When decanting wine, make sure that you tilt the paper cup and pour slowly so as not to bruise the bouquet of the wine. b. If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers covering the label. Personal Hygiene a. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one's own truck keys. b. Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. If you live alone, however, deodorant is a waste of good money. c. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the taste of finger foods. Rules of the Road a. Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if the gun is loaded and the deer is in sight. b. When approaching a four-way stop, the vehicle with the largest tires always has the right of way. c. Never tow another car using panty hose and duct tape. d. When sending your wife down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask her to bring back beer. e. Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle when you are the driver. f. Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession. Weddings a) Ex-mother-in-laws should not be invited to weddings, unless they are the parole officers of the bride or groom. b) Rifles and handguns are not appropriate wedding gifts. c) When giving a set of towels, tires, milk-crates or hub-caps as wedding gifts, try to pick the same make or color for each piece of the set. d) If the bride is more than 8 months pregnant, it is better to have the wedding after the delivery of the baby, so that the bride can fully enjoy and participate in the wedding brawl.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Grease Stains on Suede Shoes By Pamela [1 Comment] I've had luck with removing light grease stains from suede with rubber cement. The kind of rubber cement used in school projects (comes in a brown bottle with it's own brush inside). Of course, test first on a small spot, like the on inside lining. Just brush on a small amount, let it sit for a moment to dry, then rub off the rubber cement with a soft cloth. When stain is gone and suede is dry, use suede brush to fluff up the suede again. Good luck!
