Today she's in some discomfort because she has a pain in her lower abdomen. She finally realizes that its just a tremendous build up of gas from something she ate. The bus is quite crowded and she doesn't know what to do. Then she remembers that pretty soon the bus will run across some railroad tracts and it will rattle and bang and make lots of noise. She will be able to pass this gas and nobody will know. What she doesn't know is that the bus driver also rides the bus everyday and has grown tired of all the noise the bus makes when it rattles and bangs across the railroad tracts. So last night he stayed after work and had the maintenance crew tighten up all the loose bolts and lubricate all the moving parts to quiet down the old bus. Well, here come the railroad tracts, Donna raises up on one cheek and lets it rip. It was one long, loud, juicy sounding fart. The bus didn't rattle and bang like it usually did and now you could hear a pin drop inside the bus as everybody started looking around. Donna thought that maybe no one knew who did it and that she should just act natural. She thought she should just start a conversation with someone as if nothing had happened. She leaned over to the man sitting across the aisle and casually asked him, 'Do you have a transfer?' He politely responded, 'No I don't, but the next tree we pass I will try and grab you a handful of leaves.' ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Debra Pitts, 31, Jennifer Tozzi, 34, Claremont NH 2 NH women arrested for Pizza Dewlivery man stabbing Two women face felony charges in connection with the stabbing and armed robbery of a pizza delivery man Saturday morning, police said. The incident happened on Trinity Street and the victim, who was not identified, was treated and released from Valley Regional Hospital, Claremont Police Capt. Brent Wilmot said in a news release. Acting in part on tips from the public and an investigation that included reviewing video surveillance footage from a nearby location, police arrested Debra Pitts, 31, of Claremont, and Jennifer Tozzi, 34, at a Claremont residence at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Tozzi also had a warrant out for her arrest in connection an incident out of Grafton County, police said. Her hometown was not indicated in the release. Pitts faces a robbery charge and Tozzi has been charged with conspiracy to commit robbery. The charges filed against both are Class A felony-level offenses, the release said. Pitts and Tozzi remain in custody and scheduled to be arraigned on Monday in Claremont District Court. An earlier police news release said an order from Domino’s was being delivered to an apartment on Trinity Street when the delivery driver was attacked as he arrived at the apartment. The driver was stabbed several times and a small amount of money was taken. A neighbor who heard the attack intervened and threatened to call the police, at which point the two suspects fled on foot in the direction of Franklin Street. Pitts lives on Trinity Street, though Police Chief Mark Chase declined to say whether she had initiated the call to Dominos. “This has all the signs that it’s more than likely drug- related,” Chase said before the arrests were made. “We’re definitely looking at that angle. It’s just what everybody in the state is dealing with.” Staff at the Claremont Dominos on Saturday morning acknowledged that the driver was recovering from his injuries, but referred questions to a manager, who did not immediately respond to requests for comment. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rosalind Re: Static strap Dear Webby Have to install an ether port in the tower and the book says I should wear an grounding wrist strap available at most electronics stores. Before I spend the money I would like your opinion as to the necessity of wearing one. Thanks for your newsletter, pictures and always dependable advice. Rosalind Dear Rosalind Double your money. Just fold it in half and stick it back into your wallet. With today's electronics, static is not really a problem any more. However, if you routinely get zapped when you touch door knobs or the back of the computer, then take a couple of feet of any flexible wire, strip the insulation of the last few inches, tie one end to bare metal at the back of the computer, and loop the other end through your watch band o around your wrist. When you work on the computer, always leave it plugged in, so that it is properly grounded. Anybody who tells you to unplug the computer is a clueless idiot. Turn the switch on the power supply in the back to OFF. It will cut off all power, but will leave the ground securely connected. When done, remember to turn the power supply switch back ON. Make sure that your Ethernet cable is long enough, plug it into the port, and secure the cable to any vent holes in the back with a tight nylon quick-tie. That way no strain is put onto the delicate socket and plug, and it is not damaged when somebody trips over the cable or somebody pulls on it while trying to straighten out the cable mess behind the computer. Have FUN! DearWebby
A five-year-old ran up and down the supermarket aisles shouting frantically, 'Marian, Marian!' Finally reunited with his mother, he was chided by her, 'You shouldn't call me 'Marian.' I'm your mother, you know.' 'I know,' said the kid, 'but the store is full of mothers.'

Seated at the bar is an elderly looking lady, (mid eighties). The gentleman walks over, sits along side of her, orders a drink, takes a sip, turns to her and says, "So tell me, do I come here often?" ___________________________________________________

A fifteen year-old boy came home with a Porsche and his parents began to yell and scream, "Where did you get that car???!!!" He calmly told them, "I bought it today." "With what money?" demanded his parents. " We know what a Porsche costs." "Well," said the boy, "this one cost me fifteen dollars." So the parents began to yell even louder. "Who would sell a car like that for fifteen dollars?" they said. "It was the lady up the street," said the boy. "I don't know her name-they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Porsche for fifteen dollars " "Oh my Goodness," moaned the mother, "she must be a child abuser. Who knows what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what's going on." So the boy's father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and found her out in the yard calmly planting petunias! He introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she had sold a Porsche for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it. "Well," she said, "this morning I got a phone call from my husband. I thought he was on a business trip, but learned from a friend he has run off to Hawaii with his secretary and really doesn't intend to come back. He claimed he was stranded and asked me to sell his new Porsche and send him the money. So I did."
