Thanks Ella After having their 11th child, an Alabama couple decided that was enough (they could not afford a larger doublewide). So, the husband went to his doctor (who also treated mules) and told him that he and his wife/cousin didn't want to have any more children. The doctor told him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem. The doctor instructed him to go home, get a cherry bomb (fireworks are legal in 'Bama), light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to his ear and count to 10. The Alabamian said to the doctor, "I may not be the smartest man, but I don't see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me" So, the couple drove to Georgia to get a second opinion. The Georgia physician was just about to tell them about the procedure for a vasectomy when he noticed that they were from Alabama. This doctor instead told the man to go home and get a cherry bomb, light it, place it in a beer can, hold it to his ear and count to 10. Figuring that both learned physicians couldn't be wrong, the man went home, lit a cherrybomb and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count. "1, 2, 3, 4, 5 . . . . ", at which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs and resumed counting on his other hand. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ ONE RECRUIT in our platoon at Fort Knox, Ky., had an unusual habit. No matter what lowly detail he pulled, he would smile. On a 20-mile hike with full backpack, this guy beamed from ear to ear. Cleaning the latrine had him smiling as if he'd just heard a comedy routine. But on our long-awaited graduation day, everyone was grinning except him. "Why," I asked, "aren't you smiling today?" "Because, now," he said, "it won't drive our drill instructor crazy!" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ DURING the Air Force Academy's basic cadet training, the new cadets, known as doolies, go through a ten-day encampment outdoors. Prior to being served in the chow tent, they are required to do pullups and then get in line to answer questions about the academy. If they answer correctly, they are allowed to proceed inside. If not, they are sent to the back of the line. One doolie had been sent back a number of times because he didn't reel off the answers. When the poor cadet came up again, a sympathetic upperclassman asked him, "What does the abbreviation S.I.D.N.K. stand for?" The doolie bowed his head and replied, "Sir, I do not know." "Right!" the upperclassman said. "Go on in there and get some chow!" ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jacqueline Burge, 54, Sarasota County, Florida Florida woman tries to flee after wrong-way crash on I-75 A Florida woman with a long arrest record was arrested after she tried to flee the scene of a car crash on I-75, FOX13 Tampa reported. Jacqueline Burge, 54, reportedly refused to stop after Sarasota County Sheriff's deputies attempted to pull her over. She hit a deputy's cruiser after driving through a yard before merging onto I-75 southbound. She then lost control, damaged another cruiser and then fled again, the report said. Burge tried to flee on foot but was quickly captured. FOX13 said Burge had drugs on her and several ID cards. Burge has been arrested several times in Sarasota County alone, including arrests for theft, prostitution, and drug possession, the TV station said.
From: Healy Re: Pictures from camera Dear Webby, A friend reamed me out for trasnferring pictures straight from the camera to the computer, and claimed you had said to never do that. Unfortunately she could not remember why not? Does that affect the picture quality? Healy Dear Healy It drains your camera batteries very quickly. The USB port runs at 5 Volt, the camera at 6 Volt. So the camera tries to charge up the USB port, which is regulated and backed up by the power grid. The batteries have not got a chance, and especially if you do some sorting and deleting, you will drain the batteries to near flat. There is supposed to be a diode in there preventing that, but that usually does not work. A chip reader costs $6 - $12. Just pop the camera chip in there and then take your time. It runs on USB power and you can transfer and edit as much as you got time for. Have FUN DearWebby

A crew of highway maintenance workers were sent to repair some road signs that vandals had knocked down in a forested area. The first one they put back up was a symbol warning of a deer crossing. As they moved down the road to repair the next sign, one member, a goober, looked back and spotted a deer running across the highway. She turned to a co-worker and said, "I wonder how long he's been waiting to cross?"

The businessman dragged himself home and barely made it to his chair before he dropped exhausted. His sympathetic wife was right there with a tall cool drink and a comforting word. "My, you look tired," she said. "You must have had a hard day today. What happened to make you so exhausted?" "It was terrible," her husband said. "The computer broke down and all of us had to do our own thinking." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Fixing Wallpaper Bubbles If you have a large wallpaper bubble, cut an X in the bubble. Peel back from the center, apply a bit of wallpaper paste to each corner and flatten with a damp sponge. For smaller bubbles, cut a slit in the bubble and squirt a little paper adhesive into the slit then smooth out the bubble.

___________________________________________________ On her 15th birthday, my daughter opened a package from her Mom and her sisters. Out came a beauty case containing many samples of makeup. "Neat!" I exclaimed. "Your own tackle box!" My wife calmly explained that it was NOT a tackle box, it was a beauty kit. My daughter proceeded to open it up and show us all the mascara, eye shadow, rouge, and other cosmetics. At this point I leaned over to my wife and whispered, "I told you it was a tackle box. Just look at all those lures." ___________________________________________________
