When she expressed difficulty in grasping the concept of marriage, her father decided to pull out his wedding photo album, thinking visual images would help. One page after another, he pointed out the smiling bride arriving at the church, the happily laughing bride at the entrance, the wedding ceremony, the recessional, the reception, etc. "Now do you understand?" he asked. "I think so," she said, "it's like halloween, right, but backwards. Mommy put on a nice disguise and had a pretty woman's face painted on top of hers, so that you would not see how scarey she really is.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Grant Sides, 25, Birmingham, Alabama Beloved pet killed after Alabama man shoots into neighbor's apartment A Birmingham man is jailed after he reportedly opened fire inside his Highland Park apartment, killing his own dog and a dog who was asleep on the bed in the adjacent apartment. Grant Randall Sides, 25, was sought on felony warrants for a shooting complaint and two counts of aggravated cruelty to animals, according to a Crime Stoppers bulletin. Birmingham police investigated the incident, and felony warrants were obtained against him on Friday. Sides was undergoing booking at the Jefferson County Jail at 4 p.m. Monday. His bond is set at $30,000. The shooting happened about 3:30 p.m. Friday, May 26, at an apartment complex on 22nd Street South. Brandon Watkins said he was at work when his landlord called him saying his neighbor Sides had fired shots and they believe some of those bullets had entered Watkins' home. Watkins has one dog of his own, and was keeping his brother's two dogs while he and his family were out of town on vacation. He rushed home to find crime scene tape surrounding the complex. "When I got there, they let me know he had shot his dog and had shot rounds in my apartment,'' he said. "One of my brother's dogs was hit and killed." Two of the pets in Watkins' apartment were in kennels. The third 12-year-old Walter was asleep on Watkins' bed. The shooting happened in Sides' kitchen, which shares a wall with Watkins' bedroom, and the bullet bore through his pillow. At least six shots bore through his wall. "If it had been later in the night, he would have killed me," Watkins said. "Walter was on my pillow where I sleep." Neighbors told Watkins that after Sides fired the shots, he ran out of the apartment yelling that he killed someone and fled the scene. He was arrested moments later when he crashed his vehicle on Highland Avenue, but apparently made bond pending the ongoing investigation. "It's been kind of crazy," Watkins said. "It's all been a blur." Watkins said he had to call and break the news to his brother, who turned around and headed back to Birmingham. "My niece is really upset,'' he said. "She's 9 and Walter was 12 so that's all she's ever known." He said there's still blood on his carpet from where Walter collapsed after getting shot. His own dog, Lennie, is still suffering from the ordeal. "He's traumatized,'' he said. "He won't go back there." Walter's owner, Colby Watkins, said the whole thing is a sad and avoidable situation. "My friends and family are heartbroken over the loss of Walter, but it pales in comparison to the disgust and and anger about this guy killing his own dog in his own kitchen, and the blatant disregard for those around him by firing his gun indiscriminately into other people's homes,'' he said. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dani Re: Alarm timer Dear Webby, Once again I need your expertise. Could you please recommend a good Desk Top Timer? One that doesn't put a lot of other junk on the computer. Thanks in advance for you expert help. Dani Dear Dani I use Alarm.exe since about 1997 It is at http://bluefive.pairsite.com/ However, that site often requires a lot of patience. That site is way overloaded and sometimes difficult. If you have trouble getting Alarm.Exe from there, let me know and I will send you a copy of mine. I don't send attachments uninvited. Or you can download it from my Tools page at http://webby.com/tools Just scroll way down to where you see a screen shot of it. It is old-fashioned FREEware. No payload or bullshit attached, just a plain and simple alarm clock. You set the time, and when the time comes, it pops up and makes a racket. You can leave it at it's default siren, or select any sounds that you have. You can even set it to start a program or if you have a USB powered relay, you can set it to start the pump or valve for watering the garden. You can set it to repeat, like I got mine set to go off every day at a quarter to noon, because my dad comes onto Skype video at noon. That's it. No ads, no browser redirect or search redirect, absolutely nothing on the side. Just a reliable little alarm. It folds away into an icon in the right bottom ^ (More) link until it goes off. Then it pops up, shows the time and makes a racket. Have FUN! DearWebby
A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to "Honor thy father and thy mother," she asked, "Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?" Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered,"Thou shall not kill."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Separate Spatulas When Washing While working as an airline customer-service agent, I got a call from a woman who wanted to know if she could take her dog on board. I told her the dog was welcome, as long as she paid a $50 charge and provided her own kennel. I further explained that the kennel needed to be large enough for the dog to stand up, sit down, turn around and roll over. "I'll never be able to teach him all that by tomorrow!" she said, and hung up. ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ A retiree was given a set of golf clubs by his co-workers. Thinking he'd try the game, he asked the local pro for lessons, explaining that he knew nothing whatever of the game. The pro showed him the stance and swing, then said " Just hit the ball toward the flag on the first green." The novice teed up and smacked the ball straight down the fairway and onto the green, where it stopped inches from the hole. "Now what?", the fellow asked the speechless pro. "Uh... you're supposed to hit the ball into the cup" the pro finally said, after he was able to speak again. The retiree replied, "Oh great! NOW you tell me!"

____________________________________________________ >From Eda Over the weekend I happened to catch a glimpse of some National Dog Show event as I flipped through the channels. The dog on the screen at the time was a white English sheepdog. It was simply a mound of fur with four legs. The judge was brushing back the dog's hair so she could look at the animal's eyes. The TV announcer was explaining that each dog has to have its eyes checked to make sure they're the right shape, color, etc., etc. Another announcer chimed in with, "Well, plus the judge has to see if the dog HAS both of its eyes. 'Cuz if you start combing through hair and you only see ONE eye . . . you're looking at the wrong end of the dog."
