>From Patricia
I am always so glad when you get back from Calgary.  I miss
the Newsletter when you are gone.  The jokes are so funny and
the history lesson makes me get some eduketen.    I hope
that one day you will no longer need to have those shots in
your eyeballs.
There are sure some idiotic people in this world and some very
cruel.  This planet is such a beautiful place, but spoiled by
the humans who were created to care for it.  Please stay well
and keep on giving us news and funnies.
Your friend in Alabama, U.S.A

______________________________________________________ Reported by Moe An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lawrence John Ripple, 71, Kansas City, Kansas Husband who robbed bank to escape wife is sentenced to home confinement A 70-year-old man charged with robbing a Kansas City, Kan., bank said he did it because he preferred a jail cell over living with his wife. Lawrence John Ripple is charged in federal court with the Friday afternoon robbery of the Bank of Labor at 756 Minnesota Ave. According to court documents, Ripple handed a teller a note that read, I have a gun, give me money. The teller complied. But instead of fleeing, Ripple took the money and then took a seat in the bank lobby, according to the documents. When a bank security guard approached him, Ripple told the guard, Im the guy youre looking for. The guard took the money from Ripple and held him until police arrived, which wasnt long, because Kansas City, Kan., police headquarters is on the same block. When he was questioned later by investigators, Ripple told him that he and his wife had argued and he no longer wanted to be in that situation, according to the documents. Ripple wrote out his demand note in front of his wife and told her hed rather be in jail than at home, an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit filed in support of the robbery charge. A remorseful 71-year-old man who robbed a Kansas City, Kan., bank last September and told police he hoped to land in prison to escape his wife told a federal judge Tuesday that heart surgery had left him depressed and unlike himself when he committed the crime. Though Lawrence John Ripple pleaded guilty to bank robbery in January and could have spent up to 37 months in prison, his attorney and federal prosecutors asked a U.S. District Court judge for leniency. That request was supported by the vice president of the bank and the teller whom Ripple frightened, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Sheri Catania. U.S. District Court Judge Carlos Murguia sentenced Ripple on Tuesday to six months of home confinement after public defender Chekasha Ramsey and Catania cited Ripples health issues, remorse and unlikeliness to reoffend. Ripple will also serve three years of supervised probation, including 50 hours of community service. He was ordered to pay $227.27 to the bank he robbed the amount representing the billable hours for bank employees who were sent home on the day of robbery and $100 to a crime victims fund. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Rick Re: Second Hard Drive Dear Webby, I need a second hard drive for my machine.

Smith goes to see his supervisor in the front office. "Boss," he says, "we're doing some heavy house-cleaning at my mother-in-law's home tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff." "We're short-handed, Smith," the boss replies. "I can't give you the day off." "Thanks, boss," says Smith, "I knew I could count on you!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Japanese Style Fried Chicken (Karaage) A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them. After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight. When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold. He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side. When he was close enough, he called out, "Excuse me, where are we?" "This is Heaven, sir," the man answered. "Wow! Would you happen to have some water?" the man asked. "Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up." The man gestured, and the gate began to open. "Can my friend," gesturing toward his dog, "come in, too?" the traveler asked. "I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets." The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog. After another long walk, and at the top of another long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed.. There was no fence. As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book. "Excuse me!" he called to the man. "Do you have any water?" "Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in." "How about my friend here?" the traveler gestured to the dog. "There should be a bowl by the pump." They went through the gate, and! sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it. The traveler filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog. When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree. "What do you call this place?" the traveler asked. "This is Heaven," he answered. "Well, that's confusing," the traveler said. "The man down the road said that was Heaven, too." "Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That's hell." "Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?" "No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind."

____________________________________________________ A woman goes to the local psychic in hopes of contacting her dearly departed grandmother. Shortly after the psychic stashed her rather exorbitant fee, her eyelids begin fluttering, her voice begins warbling, her hands float up above the table, and she begins moaning. Eventually, a coherent voice emanates, saying, "Granddaughter? Are you there?" The customer, wide-eyed and on the edge of her seat, responds, "Grandmother? Is that you?" "Yes granddaughter, it's me." "It's really, really you, grandmother?", the woman repeats. "Yes, it's really me, granddaughter." The woman looks puzzled, "You're sure it's you, grandmother?" "Yes, granddaughter, I'm sure it's me." The woman pauses a moment, "Grandmother, I have just one question for you." "Anything, my child." "Grandmother, when did you learn to speak English?" ___________________________________________________
People are awesome-2017.
A honeymoon couple is in the Watergate Hotel in Washington. The bride is concerned "What if the place is still bugged?" The groom says, "I'll look for a bug."He looks behind the drapes, behind the pictures, under the rug "AHA!" Under the rug was a disc with four screws. He gets his Swiss army knife, unscrews the screws, throws them and the disc out the window. The next morning, the hotel manager asks the newlyweds "How was your room? How was the service? How was your stay at the Watergate Hotel?" The groom says, "Why are you asking me all of these questions?" The hotel manager says, "Well, the room under you complained about the chandelier falling on them!"

____________________________________________________ Two girls were discussing pranks they had played on people in the past while waiting for a bus. After they boarded a crowded bus and one of them whispered to the other, "Watch me embarrass a man into giving me his seat."Pushing her way through the crowd, she turned all her charms upon a gentleman who looked like he might embarrass easily. "My dear Mr. Wilson," she gushed, "fancy meeting you on the bus. Am I glad to see you. Why, you're almost a stranger. My, but I'm tired." The sedate gentleman looked up at the girl. He had never seen her before, but he rose and said pleasantly, but by no means quietly: "Sit down, Mary, my girl. It isn't often I see you on washday. No wonder you're tired. Being pregnant probably isn't easy. By the way, don't deliver the wash until Thursday. My wife is going to the District Attorney's office to see whether she can post bail to get your boyfriend out of jail for a while."
