The driver went to the owner of the calf and explained what had happened. He then asked what the animal was worth. "Oh, about $200 today," said the rancher. "But in six years it would have been worth $900. So $900 is what I'm out." The motorist sat down and wrote out a check and handed it to the farmer. "Here," he said, "is the check for $900. It's post-dated six years from now." ______________________________________________________ From "I love lighthouses" _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Brandon Torrey, 20, Birmingham, Alabama 20-year-old felon jailed after he shot somebody while on store surveillance video. A Birmingham man is under arrest after police say surveillance video showed him shooting another man at a southwest Birmingham convenience store. Brandon Torrey, 20, is charged with attempted murder, shooting into an occupied building and being a felon in possession of a firearm, said Birmingham police Sgt. Bryan Shelton. The shooting happened Wednesday, May 3, 2017. Shelton said the victim was waiting in line at M & N Grocery on Pearson Avenue. The video shows the suspect open the door to the store and open fire on the victim, whose name has not been released. The police department's Crime Reduction Team took Torrey into custody on Tuesday, according to jail records. He remains jailed with bond set at $60,000. Court records show Torrey pleaded guilty last year to three felonies receiving stolen property, unlawful breaking and entering of a vehicle and burglary. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison with six months to serve. "The video displays an individual with a total disregard for life,'' Shelton said. "We are truly, truly thankful the victim lived." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dani Re: emojis Dear Webby, Hope you are doing well.

The shipwrecked mariner had spent several years on a deserted island. Then one morning he was thrilled to see a ship offshore and a smaller vessel pulling out toward him. When the boat grounded on the beach, the officer in charge handed the marooned sailor a bundle of newspapers and told him, "The captain said to read through these and let us know if you still want to be rescued."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Wine Bottle To Water Plants By Trina Sudhoff [9 Posts, 10 Comments] My indoor plants need frequent watering and often get wilty before I get a chance to water them. I found a great way to keep them more hydrated and water less often wine! Well, wine bottles that is (or any empty bottle with a narrow neck). Just fill an empty bottle with water, dig a little hole in the soil of your potted plant, and quickly invert the bottle and press into the soil as firmly and upright as possible. As the soil dries, it wicks the water from the opening and keeps the soil moist until your next feeding. Source: A party at my house with a lot of wine! By ECONOMYSTIMUL8R from Sunny South FL

____________________________________________________ Father Murphy walks into a pub in Donegal and says to the first man he meets, "Do you want to go to heaven?" The man said, "I do, Father." The priest said, "Then leave this pub right now!" The priest approached a second man and said, "Do you want to got to heaven?" "Certainly, Father," was the man's reply. "Then leave this den of Satan," said the priest. The priest walked up to O'Toole and said, "Do you want to go to heaven?" "No, I don't, Father," O'Toole replied. The priest looked him right in the eye and said, "You mean to tell me that, when you die, you don't want to go to heaven?" O'Toole smiled. "Oh, when I die. Yes, sure, Father. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now." ___________________________________________________

A lawyer was reading the will of a rich man to the people mentioned in it: "To my loving wife, Rose, who stood by me in the rough times as well as the smooth, I will the house and two million dollars. "To my daughter, Jessica, who looked after me in illness and kept the business going, I will the yacht, the business, and one million dollars. "And to my cousin, Dan, who hated me, argued with me, and who thought I would not remember him in my will: You were wrong. Dan, I remember that you are a useless turkey."

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Michelle for this one: When I returned home from college for a break, I noticed a paper posted on the refrigerator. It listed some goals my dad had set for himself: Help wife more; lose weight; be more productive at work. I promptly added: "Send Michelle money every month." A few days later my brother wrote: "Make payments on car for Jason." Then my boyfriend joined in with: "Buy Tom a Jeep." Finally my father added a new goal to his amended list: "Wean the kids."
