Becky, who was nailing down house siding, would reach into her nail pouch, pull out a nail and either toss it over her shoulder or nail it in. Sally figuring this was worth looking into, asked, "Why are you throwing those nails away?" Becky explained, "When I pull a nail out of my pouch, about half of them have the head on the wrong end and I throw them away." Sally got completely upset and yelled, "You moron! Those nails aren't defective! They're for the other side of the house!" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ An old blacksmith realized he was soon going to quit working so hard. He picked out a strong young man to become his apprentice. The old fellow was crabby and exacting. "Don't ask me a lot of questions," he told the boy. "Just do whatever I tell you to do." One day the old blacksmith took an iron out of the forge and laid it on the anvil. "Get the hammer over there," he said. "When I nod my head, hit it real good and hard." Now the town is looking for a new blacksmith. _____________________________________ Gary hooking up his skidder.

Tension in the room built, people were sighing and gasping aloud as they realized how much material they had covered and were expected to recall. The following week, the professor tossed the graded papers on her desk and announced, "Class, after I left here last week, the Lord spoke to me. He said, 'Thanks, professor. I haven't heard from some of those people in years. _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Leroy Mims, 56, Hartford, Connecticut Man With 130 Arrests Breaks Into Hartford Home, Resident Takes Refuge In Safe Room till cops with K9 arrive. K9 bites the crook. A Hartford man is under arrested after a woman called police from a safe room in her house while he was stealing her jewelry. On Monday, police said they went to a home on Woodside Circle for a 911 report from a woman who said somebody broke into her house and was still there. Police said the homeowner sought shelter in a safe room and calmly maintained contact with police dispatchers while the man was in her house. Police said they saw broken glass when they got there with HPD K-9 Rosco, and maintained a perimeter of the home, while the woman stayed in contact with them. Police searched the home and Rosco found Leroy Mims, 56, hiding in the second-floor bathtub of the children’s bathroom. Police said he had a knife and was subdued by Rosco and then patrol officers. Mims had the victim’s jewelry and property in his backpack and pockets when he was arrested . Police said Mims is a convicted felon with 130 Hartford arrests with 46 prior convictions. He was charged with home invasion, second-degree larceny, first-degree criminal mischief, carrying a dangerous weapon, and interfering with police. He is being held on $100,000 bail. "I spoke to the family overnight," said Foley. "They're obviously shaken. [I'm] glad they made the decision to build the safe room and glad they're okay." _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jerry Re: Fixt Caps Locked text Dear Webby, I am editing (pro bono) a local service club monthly bulletin and occasionally get a script IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. I don't mind going through two or three paragraphs, but it will take forever to rewrite several pages -- not to mention how boring it is. If anyone knows a shortcut, I figure it is you. CAN YOU HELP? Thanx, Jerry Dear Jerry Just send it back to them and tell them that they are giving AOL a bad name, again. Tell them that there is more to life than slouching on the couch, a bottle of Southern Comfort in one hand, and poking a Caps-Locked keyboard with the typo finger of the other hand. Jerry, you are not doing them a favor by lowering your standards to theirs! Bring them up to YOURS! He's a poor teacher, who has never been called a meanie. Have FUN! DearWebby

"From Francine As a realtor, I deal with all types of people. Recently, I showed a home to a couple who seemed eager to check out the fantastic view from the living room. But when I dramatically pulled back the drapes, the disappointed husband asked, "Where is the view? Those mountains must be blocking it."

A young lawyer was defending a wealthy businessman in a complicated lawsuit. Unfortunately, the evidence was against his client, and he feared the worst. So the lawyer asked the senior partner of the law firm if it would be appropriate to send the judge a box of Havana cigars. The partner was horrified. "The judge is an honorable man," the partner exclaimed. "If you do that, I can guarantee you will lose the case!" Weeks later the judge ruled in favor of the lawyer's client. The partner took him to lunch to congratulate him. "Aren't you glad you didn't send those cigars to the judge?", the partner asked. "But I did send them," replied the lawyer. "I just enclosed the plaintiff's lawyer's business card!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Canned Cream Soups Cream soups, like cream of mushrooms, make easy sauces for vegetables, sauces and casserole filling. Stock up on cream soups when they are sale, they are a great time saving staple to have in your pantry. Tip provided by Condensed or Concentrated soup is an even better deal. I use a can of condensed vegetable soup for 88 cents, add potatoes and whatever veggies I find in the fridge or a can of mixed vegetables, chop up an inch of smoked farmer sausage, and let it simmer to make a delicious bachelor's stew. Bachelor's Stew can be extended the next day. Just toss more potatoes and veggies into the leftovers. Do NOT use more cauliflour than you can finish the first day. Anything else reheats just fine. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________ A couple went to pay a visit to another couple, unannounced. The wife answered the door. "Come in," she said. The other couple came in,sat down, then asked, "Where's John?" "Oh," replied his wife,"he's in the bathroom, grouting and spackling." "Oh, dear," said the other lady, "I had that once and didn't get over it for two weeks. __________________________________________________

"From Walt Because I couldn't unplug the toilet with a plunger, I had to dismantle the entire fixture, no small feat for a non- plumber. Jammed inside the drain was a purple rubber dinosaur, which belonged to my five-year-old son. I painstakingly got all the toilet parts together again, the tank filled, and I flushed it. However, it didn't work much better than before! As I pondered what to do next, my son walked into the bathroom. I pointed to the purple dinosaur I had just dislodged and told him that the toilet still wasn't working. "Did you get the green one, too?" he asked. ___________________________________________________
