I have explained to him time and time again that you're really just playing against yourself. This time the family was on vacation and I had gone out to play a round. When I returned, the kids were swimming in the hotel pool, which was full of young kids and surrounded by dozens of parents. From across the pool, at the top of his lungs, my son yelled, "Hey Dad! Were you just playing with yourself?

The Immigration Officer said, "Mujibar, you have passed all the tests, except there is one more test. Unless you pass it you cannot enter America." Mujibar said, "I is ready." The officer said, "Make a sentence using the words Yellow, Pink and Green." Mujibar thought for a few minutes and said, "Mister Officer, I is ready." The Officer said, "Go ahead." Mujibar said, "The telephone, she goes green, green, green, and I pink it up, and I say, 'Yellow, this is Mr Mujibar.'" Mujibar now lives in a neighbourhood near you, and works for your phone company's Help Desk. ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kerrie Lenkerd, 40, Centerton, Arkansas Woman arrested after she said she fired gun to scare teen she caught raping neighbor’s dog Police arrested an Arkansas woman last week after she allegedly shot at a 14-year-old boy whom she accused of trying to rape a neighbor’s dog. Kerrie Lenkerd, 40, was arrested on Tuesday, April 25, according to an arrest warrant. She is facing a charge of felony aggravated assault. On Monday, April 17, Centerton police talked to Lenkerd, who said that she spotted the teenager out her window in her neighbor’s yard. She told police that the boy was in his boxers and he was sexually assaulting the neighbor’s dog, according to KFSM-TV. Lenkerd said the boy has done this before, so she took a gun from her safe and approached him and ordered him to get on the ground, the warrant states. She said the boy jumped the fence and so she went after him and fired a shot into the ground to scare him. She said the boy ran away leaving behind some clothes and an iPad. Officers spoke to several neighbors who said they heard the gunshot and then spotted the boy running away, the document states. The following day, officers spoke to the boy, who said Lenkerd came around and pointed a gun at him and told him to put his hands up, the warrant states. He said he didn’t see her carrying a badge so he jumped the fence and ran away in his underwear. He said Lenkerd fired a shot about five or 10 seconds after he jumped the fence. The boy told police that when he got home he changed clothes and told his mom a false story before meeting with officers. Lenkerd was taken to the Benton County Detention Center, where she was held on a $5,000 bond. -------------------- I really sympathise with her, but when a perp is fleeing and no threat, then you can't shoot. Since she had his iPad and his pants, there was no need for shooting, especially not after he was beyond the fence. Since cops get in trouble for shooting at a fleeing perp, they won't let civilians get away with that. They will take all her guns and make her a felon, which means no more guns for the rest of her life, and no vactions in Canada or many other fine countries. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Eddie Re: Defragging Dear Webby What is this defragging all about and how does it work? Eddie Dear Eddie Every time a file is opened and changed, it's size changes. When it is saved again, the part that does not fit into the original spot, is placed somewhere else. That is a fragment. Over time, some files will be in bits and pieces all over the place. Naturally, that slows everything down and also can cause reliability problems. A defragger re-unites all the different pieces of each file. After the first time you run a good defragger, it will feel like you had bought a newer and faster computer. Currently the defragger in the Glary Utilities seems to be the best of the free ones. Be careful, though with the rest of the utilities bundled with it and only use them after you have done a full back-up! Have FUN! DearWebby
A teacher was sitting at her desk grading papers, when her first-grade class came back from lunch. Wendy informed the teacher, "Anni has to go to the principal's office." "Do you know why ?", the teacher asked. "Because she's a following person," Wendy replied. "A what?" "It came over the loudspeaker: 'The following persons are to go to the office...'"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Starting a Pussy Willow Plant from a Branch By Ellen You can easily start a pussy willow by rooting one of its branches in water. Pussy willows (like other trees in the willow family) produce a natural rooting hormone that encourages them to root quickly. In fact, if you put cutting from other plants in with the pussy willows that are rooting, the other plants are likely to root faster due to the presence of the rooting hormone. To start a branch in water, select a 12 to 16 inch section that is from 1/2 to 1 inch thick. Remove any leaves that will fall before the water line, and stick the branch in a bucket of water. Store the branch in a cool place out of direct sunlight until some roots emerge. Then transplant the branch outdoors to moist soil. Rooting a Branch in Soil Although pussy willow branches root easily in water, they will take off much faster if you root them directly in moist soil. This is because water roots (roots that have developed in water) are not the same as roots that have developed in soil. Water roots need time to adapt to their new growing conditions in soil, so branches that are rooted this way will take a bit longer to become established. Pussy willow branches can be rooted in pots indoors or directly in the garden as soon as weather permits (danger of frost is past). Have fun! Ellen

____________________________________________________ Did you know that in order to encourage interstate commerce in the US every second state forbids fireworks and you have to go to the next state to get them. You can always tell that you are getting close to a state border when you see those firworks sales huts on the side of the freeway. In Canada fireworks are usually regulated locally but rarely enforced unless somebody does something really stupid. However, in this one town, which shall remain nameless, the local dogooders decided to push for a bylaw banning fireworks, even though the only reported accident was when a city council member had forgotten that her hubby had stashed the fireworks in the barbeque to keep them out of the rain and out of the reach of the kids. An opponent to the proposed fireworks bylaw erected a sign that read: "ALL dogooders should be blown up" The next morning somebody had spray-painted underneath: "That would do them good" ___________________________________________________
