She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee in front of him. He appears deep in thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of coffee. "What's the matter dear?" she whispers as she steps into the room, "Why are you down here at this time of night?" "Do you remember when I met you and you were only 16?" he asks solemnly. The wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring and sensitive. "Yes, I do" she replies. The husband pauses. The words are not coming easily. "Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car, making love?" "Yes, I remember" says the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him. The husband continues... "Do you remember when he shoved a shotgun in my face and said, "either you marry my daughter, or I will send you to jail for 20 >years?'" "I remember that too" she replies softly. He wipes another tear from his cheek and says..."I would have gotten out today. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ To celebrate its 28th anniversary in space, the Hubble Space Telescope took this image of the Lagoon Nebula.

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Dave for this story: Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room ' s only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation. Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window. The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene. One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind' s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words. Days, weeks and months passed. One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed. It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall. She said, "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tina Jones, 31, Woodridge, Illinois Illinois nurse paid to have Doctor's Wife killed An Illinois nurse hired a dark web company to kill the wife of a male doctor with whom she had an affair, police say. Woodridge police say that last Thursday, the CBS show 48 Hours reached out to them to say an area woman was allegedly involved in a murder-for-hire plot; the show had been investigating contract killing via the dark web, reports the Chicago Daily Herald. Authorities acting on that tip now allege 31- year-old Tina Jones of Des Plaines had in January paid more than $10,000 in Bitcoin to the Cosa Nostra International Network. Though they suspect that outfit scammed her, per the Chicago Tribune, police say Jones' goal was the murder of a clinical social worker from Woodridge, the wife of an anesthesiologist who completed his residency at a Maywood hospital where Jones works as a registered nurse. Jones' exact relationship with the doctor isn't clear, but ABC7 reports she had been "jilted" by him. Even so, "she left instructions not to hurt the husband and also to make it look like it was an accident," DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin says of the alleged plot. "She left specific instructions on the website as to when the woman's husband would be at work, so they would know when this woman would be alone." After submitting to an interview with Woodbridge police, Jones was arrested Tuesday on a charge solicitation of murder for hire, which carries a minimum sentence of 20 years in prison. Bail was set at $250,000 on Wednesday. Jones, who's also been suspended from her job pending an investigation, is due to be arraigned on May 15.

A young man was talking to a girl that he had just met, and asked her name. "I don't want to tell you," she said, "I'm named after both of my parents, and it's kind of embarrassing." "Well, what could be so bad about that?" the young man asked. "My mother's name is Eliza, and my father's name is Ferdinand." the girl answered. "Well, those are nice names" the guy replied. "They would be if they wouldn't have named me FerdEliza!"

A young man had completed medical school. He went back home to the small town to work with his father. They went out the first day to make house calls. As they went in the first house the father said now you watch me so you will know what to do. Inside, a woman was in the bed and she looked terrible. The old doctor checked her out. He was making notes when he dropped his pen to the floor. He picked it up and told the woman she need to quit cleaning and working so hard in her house, she just needed rest. When they got outside, the son asked how he knew that she was cleaning too much. The old doctor said that when he dropped his pen, the floor was so clean that there wasn't a speck of dust anywhere. When they arrived at the next house, the father told his son that it was his turn to examine the patient. At this house too, the woman was in bed, looking terrible. The young doctor took her blood pressure and pulse, asked a few questions, and made some notes. Then he dropped his pen and reached down to pick it up. He told the woman that she was doing too much church work, and needed to cut down on what she did. When the two doctors went outside, the old doctor asked the young one how he knew that she was doing too much church work. The young one said, "Well, when I bent down to pick up my pen, I saw the preacher under the bed." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Sanding in Hard to Reach Places An emery board works well for sanding tough to reach places on furniture.
