The psychic's eyelids begin fluttering, her hands float up above the table, and she begins moaning. Eventually, a coherent voice emanates saying, "Granddaughter? Are you there?" The woman, wide-eyed and on the edge of her seat, responds, "Grandmother? Is that you?" "Yes granddaughter, it's me." "It's really, really you, grandmother?", the woman repeats. "Yes, it's really me, granddaughter." The woman looks puzzled, "You're sure it's you, grandmother?" "Yes, granddaughter, I'm sure it's me." The woman pauses a moment, "Grandmother, I have just one question for you." "Anything, my child." "Grandmother, when did you learn to speak English?" ______________________________________________________ Not a recent picture. It stopped snowing but it is still very cloudy here. It used to be called "Harvest Moon" because this week was the time for burning the potato and other veggie's uppers and tree leaves after harvesting, in the years before the insane dogooders got that practise banned. I still miss the fragrant smell of the burning potato uppers and tree leaves. It used to be funny when some people raked their leaves piles out onto the road and set them on fire. It was not a protest of any kind, just fires well away from houses. Many also tossed tree stumps and knotty firewood, that was too hard to split, onto the leaves. They, of course, burned much slower and gave the kids a chance to roast marshmellows. Because of the fresh local smoke the harvest moon always used to be orangey or red. _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Devon Ruoss, 41, Carlisle, Pennsylvania PA crook tried to outrun cops with a bicycle Cumberland County President Judge Edward E. Guido couldn't suppress a chuckle as Devon Ruoss stood before him to enter a guilty plea Tuesday morning. After all, the man had tried to outrun a bevy of Carlisle cops on a bicycle. And one of the officers was in a cruiser with lights flashing and siren blaring. As Senior District Attorney Daniel Sodus explained it, Ruoss, 41, began his ill-fated two-wheeled flight around 3 p.m. on July 26 after a borough officer recognized him as a wanted man. Two days earlier, Ruoss had been accused of punching a woman. So, the officer ordered Ruoss to stop when he spied him in the 100 block of South Hanover Street. Instead, Ruoss pedaled away with the cruiser in pursuit, Sodus said. "Several officers on foot tried to stop Mr. Ruoss as well," the prosecutor added. Eventually, Ruoss ran into a cop car and fell down. "So that was done on a bicycle?" Guido asked as Ruoss stood there in handcuffs. "A bicycle," Sodus confirmed. "So, it wasn't a high-speed chase?" the judge continued. "It depends on how fast he can ride a bicycle," the DA replied. Ruoss pleaded guilty to fleeing police for the bike chase and to simple assault for the punching incident. His only deal is for a county prison term that has yet to be determined by Judge Guido.

>From Edna We had built our dream house several years ago, and furnished it with quality pieces as we could afford them. Now the delivery truck carrying the last purchase, a new bedroom suite, was pulling into the driveway. "Finally!" I exclaimed, flinging open the front door as the driver walked up to the house. "I've been waiting twelve years for this!" "Don't blame me, lady," he said. "I just got the order this morning."

Everything about my new townhouse was great, except for one thing. I couldn't find my mailbox. It wasn't on the curb, nor was it by my front door. I was stymed. To the rescue came the development's manager. "The location of your mailbox should be indicated in the welcome package," he assured me. "It's the one we mailed to you." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Pay Yourself First We have direct deposit and our credit union will automatically transfer a set amount of money each pay period to our savings account.

Thanks to Barry for this story: A female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long time. So she went to check it out. She went to the Western Wall and there he was walking slowly up to the holy site. She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, using a cane in a very slow fashion , she approached him for an interview. "Pardon me Sir, I'm Rebecca Smith from CNN, What's your name? "Maury Fishbein" he replied. "Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?" "For about 60 years." "60 years! That's amazing! What do you pray for?" "I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims. I pray for all the Wars and hatred to stop, I pray for all our children to grow up safely as responsible adults, and to love their fellow man." "How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?" "Like I'm talking to a f@#$%^g wall." ____________________________________________________
