Thomas Jefferson once said, 'We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.' And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying. --- Ronald Reagan (1911 - 2004) ____________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Two very successful psychoanalysts occupied offices in the same building. One was 40 years old, the other over 70. They rode on the elevator together at the end of an unbearably hot, sticky day. The younger man was completely done in, and he noted with some resentment that his senior was fresh as a daisy. "I don't understand," he marvelled, "how you can listen to complaining patients from morning till night, on a day like this, and still look so spry and unbothered when it's over?" The older analyst replied, "So, who listens?" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ The red-bearded bee-eater lives in the Indo-Malayan region of Southeast Asia in dense forest habitats. _____________________________________________________

St Peter said to the taxi driver, "Tell me what you did on earth and who you are so I can check my list". The taxi driver told him. St Peter returned with a silk robe and a gold staff and said, "Enter in." St Peter asked the next man who he was. "I was a minister for 42 years." "Fine" said St Peter, "let me go check my list." He returned with a cotton robe and a wooden stick. "Not fair" howled the minister, "that taxi driver got a silk robe and a gold staff. How come I only get a cotton robe and a wooden stick?" St Peter replied, "For 42 years, when you preached, the people slept. When that guy drove, the people prayed." ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lauren Davis, 22, Jacksonville, Florida Driver's license of dopey woman in Nocatee road-rage incident suspended four times A St. Johns County arrest report says that a road-rage incident led to the arrest of a Jacksonville woman on felony drug charges stemming from a Nocatee road-rage incident. Deputies said that Lauren Davis, 22, was driving with a license that had been suspended four times by the state. According to a report, Davis was driving on Nocatee Parkway when she slammed the brakes on her 2008 Honda Element in an act of road rage. A deputy witnessed the incident, the report said. When Davis was pulled over, she immediately admitted that she had road rage because she had been cut off by another car, the report said. The deputy who pulled her over smelled marijuana and asked Davis if she had any in her car, the report said. Davis then held up a plastic bag from her center console. Davis told deputies the bag held one ounce of marijuana, the report said. The report added that Davis' drivers license has been suspended four times since July 19, 2017. She drives anyway.
From Edna Re: Why Downward tripod? Dear Webby, Why would I ever need a tripod for shootiing straight down? Edna Dear Edna If you make custom jewelry, or collect butterflies or bugs or marbles or anything small, and need the same angle and background for catalog type pages, then you can't really scan them and have to take pictures. A twisted bar works very well for that. Have FUN DearWebby

A old man told his doctor, "I don't think my wife's hearing is as good as it used to be. What should I do?" The doctor replied, "Try this test first. When your wife is at the sink doing dishes, stand fifteen feet behind her and ask her a question. If she doesn't respond, keep moving closer, asking the question until she hears you." He went home and saw his wife preparing dinner. Standing fifteen feet behind her he said, "What's for dinner, honey?" Hearing no reply, he moved up to ten feet behind her and repeated the question. Still no reply, so he moved to five feet. Finally he stood directly behind her and said, "Honey, what's for dinner tonight?" She turned around and yelled in his face, "For the fourth time, I SAID CHICKEN, you deaf old fart!"

Thanks to Rosie for this story: After an overnight flight to meet my father at his latest military assignment, my mother wearily arrived at Rhein- Main Air Base in Germany with my eight siblings and me, all under the age of eleven. Collecting our many suitcases, the ten of us entered the cramped customs area. A young customs official watched our entourage in disbelief, "Ma'am," he asked, "do all these children and this luggage belong to you?" "Yes, sir," my mother said with a sigh. "They're all mine." The customs agent began his questions, "Ma'am, do you have any weapons, contraband or illegal drugs in your possession?" "Sir," she calmly answered, "if I'd had any of those items, I would have used them by now." The official allowed us to pass without opening a single suitcase. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Carpet Installation Day Most carpet retailers outsource the installation to independent contractions so it's important to inspect the work closely and not sign any paperwork after the installation until you are satisfied. If the carpet installers will not address your concerns, call the retailer. The same applies to ANY and ALL flooring installers. I held back 50% pending successful installation when I bought vinyl flooring in 2001 and did not budge no matter how much they whined. It is ridiculous what they initially tried to get away with. Tried unsuccessfully! Have FUN! DearWebby Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________
