The next morning, I awoke before 6, but the phone did not ring until 6:30. "Good morning," a young man said sheepishly. "This is your wake-up call." Annoyed, I let the hotel worker have it. "You were supposed to call me at 6!", I complained. "What if I had a million-dollar deal to close this morning, and your oversight made me miss out on it?" "Well, sir," the desk clerk quickly replied, "if you had a million dollar deal to close, you probably wouldn't be staying in this motel!" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Michael Ren Wysolovski, 31, Duluth, Georgia Teen Missing 13 Months Rescued From Georgia Home Kidnapper arrested A 17-year-old North Carolina girl who disappeared from her home more than a year ago was rescued after her family received a tip on Facebook. Hailey Burns, who was 16 when she was abducted in 2016, was found in 31-year-old Michael Ren Wysolovski’s home in Duluth, Georgia on Saturday, according to the FBI. Wysolovski has been charged with aggravated sodomy, cruelty to children, deprivation in the first degree, interference with custody and false imprisonment. A judge on Monday ordered Wysolovski held without bond. Burns was reunited with her family on Sunday. “Hailey is so happy to be home and safe,” her mother, Shaunna Burns, said in a statement to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “She is happy to be in her clothes. … In her bed. With her family.” The girl’s parents discovered she was missing from their Charlotte, North Carolina home on the morning of May 23, 2016. There was no sign at the time of forced entry into the home, police said. “We woke up one morning to go wake her up for school like we do every single day and there was nobody there,” her father, Tony Burns, told Charlotte’s WCNC News last year. The teen’s parents told WCCB News she has Asperger’s Syndrome and struggled to make friends. “She really wasn’t 16, she was like maybe 12, so naive and so impressionable and so easily manipulated,” her mom said. Police suspect Wysolovski met the teen online and lured her out of her home. Authorities had no leads on her whereabouts, leading the FBI to offer a $15,000 reward for information in the case. On June 22, Tony Burns posted on Facebook that 394 days had passed since he’d last seen his daughter. “I see her room empty and pictures around me and just wish I could hug my little girl again,” he wrote. “I miss her so very much.” Unbeknownst to Tony Burns, a break in the case was just days away. According to WSOC-TV, a woman from Romania contacted the teen’s parents via Facebook on Friday and told them she had been in contact with the girl online, but did not know where she was being held. All the tipster had was a photo the teen had taken out a window of Wysolovski’s Georgia residence. The family provided that photo to the FBI and agents used it to determine the teen’s location. Authorities have not released further details about the case. Shaunna Burns told WSOC-TV her daughter has lost 15-20 pounds and is trying to readjust to life back home. “There are changes in my daughter,” she said. “She is not the same person that left and that is the hardest part of this.” Wysolovski is set to appear at his preliminary hearing on July 7. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jan Re: Copyright Symbol Dear Webby, A year or so ago (maybe 3 or 4) you gave a list of symbols. I lost mine! I need the copyright. I thought it was Alt-Ctrl-C, but can't seem to get it to work. Anyway you could publish that list again? Thanks so much, Jan Dear Jan The copyright symbol is made by holding down ALT and typing 0169 with the numeric key pad. NUM-LOCK of course has to be on. The strip I made for laying on top of the keyboard or gluing to the bottom frame of the monitor is at http://webby.com/humor/key-codes.html It has lots of handy keyboard shortcuts on it. Have FUN!

An 8-year-old girl went to her dad, who was working in the yard. She asked him, "Daddy, what is sex?" The father was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decides that if she is old enough to ask the question, then she is old enough to get a straight answer. He proceeded to tell her all about the "birds and the bees." When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open. The father asked her, "Why did you ask this question?" The little girl replied, "Mom told me to tell you that dinner would be ready in just a couple of secs."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Remove Water Stains in Toilet By Marty Dick [169 Posts, 1,002 Comments] I am a real nutcase about my bathrooms. Our toilets are still fairly new, so there is no need for them to have brown stains. I had a ring around my bowl and streaks coming down where the water runs into the bowl. Since I use CLR on my faucets I decided to dump some into the toilet bowl to try and get rid of that stubborn stain that wouldn't go away. It worked! Now the bowl is new potty clean. ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ The mayor of a small town in Texas decided to ride with a policeman to learn what they do when they issue a traffic ticket. The officer told the mayor, " we'll just follow a car for a few miles and the motorist will surely make a mistake somewhere on his trip." They found a guy in a Lexus and began to follow. After three miles no violations. Then six miles no violations and then after ten miles the policeman turned to the mayor and said, "I think I'll stop that driver and congratulate him on being so careful." He pulled the car to the side of the road and went slowly to the drivers window. He complemented the driver for being so careful and the driver said, "Hic! Ya gotta be careful when you're ash drunk ash I am!" ___________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ >From Dana: As the bus pulled away, I realized I had left my purse under the seat. Later I called the company and was relieved that the driver had found my bag. When I went to pick it up, several off- duty bus drivers surrounded me. One man handed me my ocketbook, two typewritten pages and a box containing the contents of my purse. "We're required to inventory lost wallets and purses," he explained. "I think you'll find everything there." As I started to put my belongings back into the pocketbook, the man continued, "I hope you don't mind if we watch. Even though we all tried, none of us could fit everything into your purse. That's why the stuff is in that bushel box. And we'd like to see just how you get all of it into that purse!"

____________________________________________________ Thanks to Sandie for this story: Three men were hiking through a forest when they came upon a large, raging violent river. Needing to get on the other side, the first man prayed, "God, please give me the strength to cross the river." Poof! God gave him big arms and strong legs and he was able to swim across in about 2 hours, having almost drowned twice. After witnessing that, the second man prayed, "God, please give me strength and the tools to cross the river." Poof! God gave him a rowboat and strong arms and strong legs and he was able to row across in about an hour after almost capsizing once. Seeing what happened to the first two men, the third man prayed, "God, please give me the strength, the tools and the intelligence to cross this river." Poof! He was turned into a woman. She checked the map, hiked one hundred yards up stream and walked across the bridge.
