Good Morning, ,
Today is Monday, November 6

Today I have to drive to Calgary for a colonoscopy
consultation. It is total BS and waste of time, gasoline,
and parkade extortion. Prior to a colonoscopy, ordered by my
doctor to keep the nurses off the street, is a consultation.
For the consultation some senior nurse reads the same stuff
as always, and hands out some papers, that explain how to
use a  gallon of nuclear laxative, that totally destroys the
carefully grown and nurtured bowel bacteria colony and
messes up your digestion for half a year, and just natters
about the same old thing all over again.

The colonoscopy is free, but you pay for it by attending the
consultation sermon. I don`t really need a colonoscopy right
now, but because I might need one ten or twenty years in the
future, I have to be polite and play along.

The Tuesday issue might be a bit late.

Have Fun!

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.

In the misprint, the "s" is replaced by a "c." Normally, the small type under the copyright information states that the "red disk icon and contour bottle are trademarks of the Coca-Cola Co." No, you will not get a new 12-pack, but if you hold on to the box for a few years, you might be able to auction it off for real money. ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

If anything happens to me, your mother is coming to live with you." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kelsie Laine Marie Mast, 23, Samantha Faye Toope, 20 Edmonton, Alberta Escaped prisoners were arrested at an Escape Room Two convicts who escaped a prison in Canada were recaptured in the most ironic place. Police officers in Edmonton found Kelsie Laine Marie Mast, 23, and Samantha Faye Toope, 20, inside an adventure game company’s “escape room” at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to media reports. Authorities described the escapees as “violent offenders with a history of weapons offenses.” They jumped a fence at the Edmonton Institution for Women around 24 hours earlier and escaped. A local resident recognized the wanted women and tipped cops to their presence at Sidequests Adventures, a downtown business that hosts interactive games where players have to solve puzzles to leave a locked room. Co-owner Rebecca Liaw was showing the women the escape room when officers found them. “It’s funny and ironic that escaped convicts run into an escape room and get caught,” Liaw’s husband and fellow co- owner, Jonathan Liaw, told The Edmonton Journal. Police returned the women to Correctional Service Canada. It’s unclear what new charges they face, but since escaping is really frowned upon, and considering their criminal history, it is a safe bet that they will get serious time in the big house (Federal jail). _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Gary Re: No CD AutoPlay Dear Webby, Thank you first of all for your extremely informative letter.. it's been a great help to me and my friends and family However I do have a question for you hope you can help.... when I put a pre-recorded CD in my pc cd player it don't automaticly bring up the player..what ever it may be..I have to bring it up never done that before...with my other pc ..which has windows XP it works the way on this one it has windows 10 and is a bloody nuisance..Please Help...

> From Linda Actual police reports….. A woman in Pa. reported a threatening text from her ex husband. She said she knows it was from him because the text was in his handwriting.” A woman reported she saw a monkey loose, but admitted it could have been a deer. She also said she was drinking iced tea, but admitted it could have been tequila. A woman reported somebody climbed through a window and stole multiple items. She suspected it was her sister “since all the things that were stolen belonged to her.” A woman reported pigs in her yard ‘doing pig things.’ A woman reported 3 naked uninvited men in her hot tub.

An old man witnesses a burglary and appears in court. The defense lawyer asks him, "Did you see my client commit this burglary?" "Yes," the man says. "I saw him plainly take the goods." The lawyer adds, "This happened at night. Are you sure you saw my client commit this crime?" "Yes, I saw him do it," the man says. The lawyer says, "You are 80 years old and your eyesight probably is bad. Just how far can you see at night?" The man says, "I can see the moon. I bet you are not smart enough to know how far that is!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Serving Food at Parties While it's easiest to put out a lot of food at once, you can save a lot of waste and possibly prevent some food poisoning by putting food out in smaller batches and replacing it as it runs out. This keeps food from sitting out all day (or all night) so any food that is leftover is still edible. If food needs to be left out for long periods of time, make sure it is properly cooled or kept warm using either ice or warming trays. Tip provided by ____________________________________________________ A widow recently married to a widower was accosted by a friend who laughingly remarked, "I suppose, like all men who have been married before, your husband sometimes talks about his first wife?" "Oh, not any more, he doesn't," the other replied. "What stopped him?" "I started talking about my next husband." __________________________________________________

Little Johnny farts in the classroom and his teacher gets really upset and throws him out. He goes and sits outside the school and can't stop laughing. The principal walks by and sees him sitting outside laughing. He says, "Little Johnny what are you doing sitting here laughing?" Little Johnny says, "I farted in class and the teacher threw me out." The principle says, "Well then, why are you laughing?" Little Johnny says, "Cause the teacher is sitting in the classroom, smelling my fart, while I'm having a smoke here in the sunshine in this beautiful, clean air." (Actually, that was me. I always got lots of fresh air time.) ___________________________________________________

As Alicia was getting to know Michael and his family, she was very impressed by how much his parents loved each other. "They're so thoughtful," Alicia said. "Why, your dad even brings your mom a cup of hot coffee in bed every morning." After a time, Alicia and Michael were engaged, and then married. On the way from the wedding to the reception, Alicia again remarked on Michael's loving parents, and even the coffee in bed. "Tell me," she said, "does it run in the family?" "It sure does," replied Michael. "And I take after my mom." ____________________________________________________
