But these brothers weren’t about to let the attempted carjacker make off with their vehicle, police said. Instead, the two brothers started to fight back — and when a third brother, Antonio, heard the commotion outside the house, he ran out to join the melee as well, police said. “We got him down on the ground, but he took out a knife,” Antonio Sop told KFOR. “Then we grabbed the knife, took it away from him.” It turned out a knife wasn’t all the carjacker had on him, though. “Then he had a gun, too,” Sop told the TV station. “He put two shots in the ground.” By the time police arrived at the scene, the suspect — Jordan Michael Bond, 29 — had been wrestled to the ground by the three men, Oklahoma City Police Department spokesman Gary Knight said in a statement. Even though the brothers were sitting on top of the suspect holding him down, the would-be carjacker was still holding onto his gun by the time police got there, Antonio Sop told KFOR. But police were able to kick the firearm out of his hand, KFOR reports. “He was taken into police custody at that time,” Knight said in a statement. Bond was then taken to the Oklahoma County Jail, police said. Booked at the jail early Monday morning, Bond now faces charges of possession of a firearm, robbery and three counts of shooting with intent to kill, according to Oklahoma County Jail records. Bond has previous felony convictions, records indicate. Bond for Bond has been set at $164,000, records said. Previously, Bond was arrested by Oklahoma City police in 2008 for driving under the influence, Knight said. Bond was also arrested earlier this year in Oklahoma City for possession of a controlled substance. In May, Bond was charged with trespassing in Kingfisher County, northwest of Oklahoma City, according to state court records. Oklahoma City police said they’re glad to get Bond off the street — but don’t usually recommend the kind of hands-on tactics the Sop brothers employed. In this case, though, police said they can’t deny the brothers succeeded. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Marlene Re: How to store SD cards Dear Webby, the way that I store my sd cards is in a baseball card album. the slots for cards is small enough to store the sd cards and also put a description in. They sell pages to go in a loose leaf binder. I suppose business card holders would work too but they would be a little smaller. I found binders and pages on amazon. Marlene Dear Marlene Great idea! Now, where do you buy those nowadays? Have FUN! DearWebby

As each of his friends were married, Bill made sure some type of practical joke was played upon them. Now ready to be married himself, he was dreading the payback he knew was coming. Surprisingly, the ceremony went off without a hitch. No one stood up during the pause to offer a reason 'why this couple should not be married'. His reception wasn't disrupted by streakers or smoke-bombs, and the car the couple was to take on their honeymoon was in perfect working order. When the couple arrived at their hotel and entered the room, Bill even checked for cornflakes in the bed (a gag he had always loved). Nothing, it seemed, was amiss. Satisfied that he had come away unscathed, the couple fell into bed. Upon waking, the couple was ravenous so Bill called down to room service and asked, "I'd like to order breakfast for two." At that moment, a soft voice from under the bed said, "Make that five, and one for Bob recording from the next room."

Little Johnny was afraid of the dark. One night his mother told him to go out to the back porch and bring her the broom. Little Johnny turned to his mother and said, "Mama, I don't want to go out there. It's dark." His mother smiled reassuringly at Little Johnny. "You don't have to be afraid of the dark," she explained. "Jesus is out there. He'll look after you and protect you." Little Johnny looked at his mother real hard and asked, "Are you sure he's out there?" "Yes, I'm sure. He is everywhere, and he is always ready to help you when you need him," she said. Little Johnny thought about that for a minute and then went to the back door and cracked it a little. Peering out into the darkness, he called, "Jesus? If you're out there, would you please hand me the broom?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Kitchen Time Saver - Sifting Ingredients If you don't have a fly sifter but a recipe calls for sifting ingredients, put the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well with a whisk. Tip provided by ____________________________________________________ Puppy Size "Danielle keeps repeating it over and over again. We've been back to this animal shelter at least five times. It has been weeks now since we started all of this," the mother told the volunteer. "What is it she keeps asking for?" the volunteer asked. "Puppy size!" replied the mother. "Well, we have plenty of puppies, if that's what she's looking for." "I know...we have seen most of them," the mom said in frustration. Just then Danielle came walking into the office "Well, did you find one?" asked her mom. "No, not this time," Danielle said with sadness in her voice. "Can we come back on the weekend?" The two women looked at each other, shook their heads and laughed. "You never know when we will get more dogs. Fortunately, there's always a supply," the volunteer said. Danielle took her mother by the hand and headed to the door. "Don't worry, I'll find one this weekend," she said. Over the next few days both mom and dad had long conversations with her. They both felt she was being too particular. "It's this weekend or we're not looking any more," Dad finally said in frustration. "We don't want to hear anything more about puppy size either," Mom added. Sure enough, they were the first ones in the shelter on Saturday morning. By now Danielle knew her way around, so she ran right for the section that housed the smaller dogs. Tired of the routine, mom sat in the small waiting room at the end of the first row of cages. There was an observation window so you could see the animals during times when visitors weren't permitted. Danielle walked slowly from cage to cage, kneeling periodically to take a closer look. One by one the dogs were brought out and she held each one. One by one she said, "Sorry, you're not the one." It was the last cage on this last day in search of the perfect pup. The volunteer opened the cage door and the child carefully picked up the dog and held it closely. This time she took a little longer. "Mom, that's it! I found the right puppy! He's the one! I know it!" she screamed with joy. "It's the puppy size!" "But it's the same size as all the other puppies you held over the last few weeks," Mom said. "No not size ---- the sighs. When I held him in my arms, he sighed," she said. "Don't you remember? When I asked you one day what love is, you told me love depends on the sighs of your heart. The more you love, the bigger the sigh!" The two women looked at each other for a moment. Mom's eyes gathered tears. As she stooped down to hug the child. "Mom, every time you hold me, I sigh. When you and Daddy come home from work and hug each other, you both sigh. I knew I would find the right puppy if it sighed when I held it in my arms," she said. Then holding the puppy up close to her face she said, "Mom, he loves me. I heard the sighs of his heart!"

A cardiologist died and was given an elaborate funeral. A huge heart covered in flowers stood behind the casket during the service. Following the eulogy, the heart opened, and the casket rolled inside. The heart then closed, sealing the doctor in the beautiful heart forever. At that point, one of the mourners burst into laughter. When all eyes stared at him, he said, "I'm sorry, I was just thinking of my own funeral...I'm a gynecologist." And at that point, the proctologist fainted. ___________________________________________________
