"Was the deceased," asked the attorney, "In the habit of talking to himself when he was alone?" "I don't know," said the Irishman. "Come now man, you don't know and yet you pretend you were intimately acquainted with the deceased?" "Well, Mr. Lawyer," said Kelly, "I never happened to be with him when he was alone.

I finally realized the parcel contained some kind of manual and was addressed to a church. But at first I thought I was processing one of our company's most momentous pieces of freight. The description read, "Instructions for the Assembly of God." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Bill for this story: Our mom needed a new mattress for her antique bed, so my brother, Josh, and I decided to buy her one as a gift. The problem was we weren't sure what to get, because it was an odd size. Fortunately, my brother happened to be visiting my mother one day when I called home. "Measure the bed frame before you leave," I told him. "I don't have a tape measure." "You can use a dollar bill," I suggested, "each one is six inches long." "Can't," he replied after digging through his wallet, "I only have a ten." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Corey Hughes, 27 Stockton, California Inmate with skull-face tattoo escaped California work crew California authorities launched a dragnet Monday for an inmate with a distinctive skull-face tattoo who vanished from a work crew. Corey Hughes, 27, was reported missing about 1:30 p.m. Monday and was last seen on Interstate 5, the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s office said. His mugshot showed he had a skull tattoo on his face. Hughes was serving a sentence for a weapons charge and was being housed in the Honor Farm. He was expected to be released next February. The Honor Farm, located south of Stockton, is a minimum- security facility that houses pretrial or sentence inmates that are usually low-risk and classified as non-violent, KCBS reported. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Fran Re: Portable Hard Drive Dear Webby, How difficult is it to connect a portable hard drive to a computer? And how do you do it? Fran Dear Fran Not difficult at all. You plug it into a USB port, Windows recognizes it as a new device the first time you do it. If necessary Windows offers to install a driver for it. After that, it simply shows as an additional hard drive. Have FUN! DearWebby

A college senior took his new girlfriend to a football game. The young couple found seats in the crowded stadium and was watching the action. A substitute was put into the game, and as he was running onto the field to take his position, the boy said to his girlfriend, "Take a good look at the fellow. I expect him to be our best man next year." His girlfriend snuggled closer and said to the surprised young man, "That's the strangest way I ever heard of for a fellow to propose to a girl. Regardless of how you said it, I accept!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Kitchen Time Saver - Juice Concentrate Use a potato masher to break up frozen juice concentrate.

Soon after arriving, he became captivated by a beautiful young lady and eased into a conversation with her by asking if she met many dates at parties. "Oh, I have a 3.9, so I'm much more attracted to the strong academic types than to dumb party animals," she said. "What's your G.P.A.?" Grinning from ear to ear, the jock boasted, "I get about 27 in the city and 38 on the highway."
