"It gets rough," one said. "My husband is a Movie Producer and he calls them 'reruns'." "You think you have it bad," was the reply. "Mine is a Quality Control Engineer and he calls them 'rejects'!" "That's nothing compared to me," said the third lady. "My husband is a mortician.

Steve's girlfriend glanced up at it and announced, "I suppose if I drank a six-pack of that brand, I'd look like her." "No," Steve corrected. "If I drank a six-pack, you'd look like her." ______________________________________________________ If you step back a bit, you will see the face _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by Linda An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Heather Query, 21, Indianapolis, Indiana Mother arrested after leaving children in hot car and assaulting rescuer A mother remains in jail after police say she knowingly endangered her two little boys by leaving them alone in a car with temperatures approaching 100 degrees. A total stranger found them in a parking lot outside a Kroger store on Southport Road. "They were screaming and crying. The oldest one was just pushing against the windows, just screaming, screaming, screaming. Face just blood red, tears coming down his face," says Heather Elliott, who found the boys, ages four and one, in that car. Elliot says her motherly instinct went into overdrive. "You just do what you have to do," she says. And what she says she was about to do was try and get into the car and get those boys out. "They looked like they had been there for a long time," Elliott adds. But before she could do that, Elliott says 21-year-old Heather Query, the boys' mom, came out of the south side Kroger. "I said, 'How long were you in there?' and she said, 'Excuse me?' I said, 'How long were you in that store?' I said 'It's 100 degrees outside," recounts Elliott. "She said, 'What do you care? Mind your own business' and she started cussing and came around the car and told me to mind my own business and then I said, 'I'm just concerned about your kids. I'm just thinking about the safety of your kids'." And then came something Elliott says she never expected. "She punched me and just kept coming and going so I just kept pushing back," Elliott explains. Someone called police. "I think it was 97 degrees heat index outside at that time," says IMPD Officer Anthony Schneider. "It's never suggested to leave your children in the car unattended first of all, let alone unattended when the heat index is a high as it was yesterday." Despite her bruised jaw, Elliott says she'd do the same thing again. "An adult, an animal, a child. I'd do it again. You don't think about it. You just do it. It's something that has to be done," Elliott adds. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lynn Re: MSIE Link Dear Webby, How can I put a link to a website that I use a *lot* in the Int. Explorer toolbar? I tried dragging the URL into a blank spot in the toolbar, but it didn't work (That's the way I do it in Firefox which I use most of the time; but this one particular website will only work correctly in Internet Explorer.) Thanks for any help you can give; love your humor letter! --Lynn Dear Lynn With IE the easiest way is to drag the icon from the address bar onto a blank spot on the desktop or drop it onto a desktop folder. You CAN enable links in the top bar, and drag it to there, but space there is limited, and if you narrow the window, the links are hidden. Personally, I prefer the first method and have a few shortcuts to thematic folders along the left margin of the desktop. For example, a music folder, a graphics folder, etc. Have FUN! DearWebby
The two men stood on the lonely lighthouse. Through the fog they could see a small boat making its way toward them, with a lonely occupant. Suddenly a squall lifted the craft and tossed the man into the water. The two men on shore sprang into action. Hurriedly they launched their own craft and fought their way through perilous and treacherous waters to reach the man. At last they got him aboard their boat. "It's a good thing you rescued me," the dripping man said gratefully. "I was coming out to see you about your income tax......" "OOOPS! He fell overboard!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Making a Borax and Honey Ant Trap By Robyn [548 Posts, 936 Comments] Sugar ants come around the kitchen and other places looking for sweet stuff to eat. Other kinds of ants follow too but I generally call them sugar ants. Here is how to make a trap to put on the counter. Supplies: 1 tsp 20 Mule Team borax* 2 cups hot water 5 Tbsp honey folded paper towel empty plastic container *Borax is an natural laundry boosting powder available in the laundry section of the store, normally on the top shelf. Steps: Dissolve the borax in hot water. Stir in the honey. Dip the folded paper towel in the solution until it is soaked completely. Press the wet paper towel in the empty plastic applesauce container. Place in a location where you have seen the ants. This bait will be eaten by the ants and taken back to the nest and will then kill the entire nest. Keep away from children by placing on a countertop where they can't reach it. ____________________________________________________
Alone in the Wilderness Part 1
____________________________________________________ A man goes into a pet shop and tells the owner that he wants to buy a pet that can do everything. The shop owner suggests a faithful dog. The man replies, "Come on, a dog?" The owner says, "How about a cat?" The man replies, "No way! A cat certainly can't do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!" The shop owner thinks for a minute, then says, "I've got it! A centipede!" The man says, "A centipede? I can't imagine a centipede doing everything, but okay... I'll try a centipede." He gets the centipede home and says to the centipede, "Clean the kitchen." Thirty minutes later, he walks into the kitchen and... it's immaculate! All the dishes and silverware have been washed, dried, and put away; the counter-tops cleaned; the appliances sparkling; the floor waxed. He's absolutely amazed. He says to the centipede, "Go clean the living room." Twenty minutes later, he walks into the living room. The carpet has been vacuumed; the furniture cleaned and dusted; the pillows on the sofa plumped; plants watered. The man thinks to himself, "This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. This really is a pet that can do everything!" Next he says to the centipede, "Run down to the corner and get me a newspaper." The centipede walks out the door. 10 minutes later...no centipede. 20 minutes later... no centipede. 30 minutes later...no centipede. By this point the man is wondering what's going on. So he goes to the front door, opens it... and there's the centipede sitting right outside. The man says, "Hey!! I sent you down to the corner store 45 minutes ago to get me a newspaper. What's the matter?!" The centipede says, "I'm goin'! I'm goin'! I'm just putting on my shoes and my skates!" ___________________________________________________
WOW! I'm glad these ginormous sharks aren't around anymore!
___________________________________________________ A man was robbing a house in the middle of the night. All of a sudden, he heard a parrot cry out. "Jesus is gonna get you." The robber ignored it, and takes the TV. Again, the parrot cries out. "Jesus is gonna get you." The robber started to get a little worried. "What's your name, birdie?" "Moses." "What dummy named you Moses?" "The same dummy who called his Rottweiler Jesus."

____________________________________________________ It was the day of the big sale. Rumors of the sale and an advertisement on the net were the main reasons for the long line that formed in front of the store long before 8:30, the store's opening time. A small man pushed his way to the front of the line, only to be pushed back amid loud and colorful curses. On the man's second attempt, he was punched square in the jaw by an irate grandmother and knocked around a bit, then thrown to the end of the line again. As he got up the second time, he said to the person at the end of the line: "That does it! If they hit me one more time, I won't open the store!"
