Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly - he in the upper bunk and she in the lower. At 1:00 a.m. the man leaned over and gently woke the woman saying, "Ma'am, hate to bother you but would you be willing to reach into the closet and get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold." "I have a better idea" she replied, "just for tonight, let's pretend we are married." "Wow, that's a great idea," he exclaimed. "Good" she replied, "get your own damn blanket." After a moment of silence, he farted, long and loud. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Groan Alert from Sandie! Did you hear about the guy in Paris who almost got away with stealing several paintings from the Louvre? After planning the crime, getting in and out past security, he was captured only two blocks away when his SUV ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied: "Monsieur, I had no Monet to buy Degas to make the Van Gogh!" I suppose that you thought I lacked DeGaulle to send you a story like this ~~!!! ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, William Henry Hoehn, 32 Fargo, North Dakota North Dakota woman accused in death of pregnant woman and kidnapping of newborn New details have emerged in the case of a North Dakota couple charged in the death of their eight-months-pregnant neighbor and the kidnapping of a baby believed to be hers, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE. Brooke Lynn Crews, 38, and her boyfriend, 32-year-old William Henry Hoehn, are charged in the death of neighbor Savanna LaFontaine-Greywind, who had last been seen Aug. 19 before her body was found in a river Sunday night. According to the documents, Hoehn allegedly told police he arrived home from work on Aug. 19 to find Crews cleaning up blood in the bathroom. She was also holding a baby girl and allegedly told him, “This is our baby, this is our family,” the charging documents state. A newborn girl, believed to be LaFontaine-Greywind’s, was found in the apartment of the suspects, which the pregnant woman visited hours before she was reported missing. According to the court documents, Crews told detectives she had invited LaFontaine-Greywind to the couple’s apartment and taught the pregnant woman how to self-induce birth by breaking her own water. Crews claimed LaFontaine-Greywind gave her the baby on Aug. 21 — two days after LaFontaine-Greywind vanished from the same apartment building. Hoehn allegedly told police he removed garbage bags containing bloody towels and his own bloody shoes and allegedly left them in a dumpster in West Fargo. Crews and Hoehn have each been charged with conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and providing false information to law enforcement. They have not yet entered pleas to the charges against them. It is unclear if they have lawyers who could comment on their behalf. Both Hoehn and Crews remained in jail on Monday without bond. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Robin Re: KVM plus Audio switch Dear Webby, Starting soon I will have 2 computers on my desk. I understand you can connect both computers with a KVM switch but will connecting 2 computers to one monitor sacrifice performance? I see that there is a switch which includes a speaker and microphone but I don't think that is necessary..I only need speakers for one computer, which I already have..I don't think including an audio set with the switch means you won't have audio unless you get a switch with this feature, but I'm not sure. Your opinion? Thanks....R.J. Dear Robin There is no loss of hardware performance. You only need an audio switch included if you run the audio through your home or office stereo, like I do. However, if you use the little squeakers, that come with computers, connected to each machine, then each will have it's own sound anyway. Personally, I did not bother with an audio switch. Computer 1 goes to the stereo, computer 2 uses it's own squeakers. Those are plenty good enough for error beeps and announcement pings. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Cookie for this story: Our dog, Longie, suddenly began barking daily at 4 a.m. Irritated and sleepy, my husband, Larry, searched the back yard for what might have disturbed this otherwise placid animal. For three mornings in a row he found nothing amiss. Then the dog woke up the neighborhood again at 3 a.m. with frantic barking. When Larry looked out the window, he discovered someone throwing pebbles to land near Longie. Larry hurried outside and confronted the culprit. Crouching on the other side of the fence was our very quiet neighbor, the last man you'd suspect of wrongdoing. My husband demanded to know what he was doing. "My mother-in-law is visiting," the embarrassed neighbor explained. "She said If she loses her beauty sleep one more night, she says she'll leave."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Freezing Green Tomatoes Don't waste all the green tomatoes left over at the end of the growing season. Wash and slice the tomatoes. Pour out some yellow cornmeal in a shallow dish. Coat the tomatoes well. Stack the slices in baggies and freeze. Next time you want Fried Green Tomatoes, just place them in your buttered pan and fry! Salt, pepper or seasonings can be added at this time. By Mairmie ____________________________________________________

When my sister returned from the store, she tossed the gift list on a table and declared, "I think she's too young to get married." "Why do you say that?" I asked. "Because," she said, "they registered for Nintendo games."
