Early to rise and early to bed makes a male healthy and wealthy and dead. --- James Thurber (1894 - 1961) ______________________________________________________ Marv, a local cop, recently stopped a woman for exceeding the posted speed limit. He asked the driver her name. She said, "I'm Mrs. Ladislanyatv Abdulkhashim Zybkcicraznovskaya from the Republic of Uzbekistan, visiting my daughter." Marv put away his summons book and pen, and said, "Well, uhhh, ok, but don't let me catch you speeding again." ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Connie for this: If you're a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that. Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. Then take a dump in the woods. I could deal with that, too. If you're a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them into next week. I could deal with that. If you're a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling. He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat. I wanna be a bear. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ When the pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express Praise for answered prayers, a lady stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise. Two months ago, my husband Jim had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him." You could hear an audible gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Jim experienced. She continued, "Jim was unable to hold me or the children and every move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a delica te operation. They were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Jim's scrotum and wrap wire around it to hold it in place." Again, the men in the congregation squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Jim. She continued, "Now, Jim is out of the hospital and the doctors say, with time, his scrotum should recover completely." All the men sighed with relief. The pastor rose and tentatively asked if any one else had anything to say. A man rose, walked to the podium, and said, "I'm Jim, and I want to tell my wife - once again - the word is STERNUM." ______________________________________________________ Soapy Smith ? _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Michael Eric Wheeler, 26, Lexus Joshlin Tripplett, 20, Ponte Vedra, Florida Tinder date in Ponte Vedra leads to home invasion, police chase. Crooks rammed and stopped by cops. Facebook A Ponte Vedra resident was restrained and robbed during a home invasion that originated as a Tinder date, the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said. The victim had arranged for a female to come to his house, but a male subject appeared and pointed a gun at him and began taking items, deputies said. The victim was tied up with bed sheets, pushed under a bed and gagged with a shirt so he couldn't scream for help, deputies said. He was forced to give up his bank account information, the report said. Before the victim freed himself, the two suspects were already using his bank accounts. The suspects were quickly identified as Michael Eric Wheeler, 26, and Lexus Joshlin Tripplett, 20, and located in a nearby park. Wheeler is a convicted felon, deputies said. He's charged with kidnapping, resisting arrest and robbery. "Deputies approached the suspects, who then turn fled and attempted to lead deputies into a vehicle pursuit. Due to the seriousness of the charges and the belief that the subjects may be involved in other violent crimes from outside of our jurisdiction, deputies rammed the suspect car against several trees, stopping their attempted escape." Wheeler is being held on a $650,000 bond, while Tripplett faces a $350,000 bond. From: Elsie Re: Wired or wireless mouse? Dear Webby What is better, a wired or a wireless mouse? Elsie Dear Elsie A wired 5 button mouse (with copy and paste!) is $50 cheaper than a similar mouse that is wireless. With the wireless mouse you have to keep buying batteries. The disadvantage of the wired mouse is that the cable gets snagged and you kock stuff over or off the desk. Today's wireless mice don't eat batteries like they used to 15 or 20 years ago. They are quite frugal now. I have a Logitech wireless 5 button mouse and a Microsoft wired 5 button mouse. The Logitech wireless mouse is aboout 7 years old, the Microsoft wired 5 button mouse is about 3 years old. The Microsoft mouse has gotten a bit unpredictable, especially the left button. Overall, the quality of the mouse is not quite the same as the Logitech mouse. Yes, I know, Microsoft does dot MAKE the mouse, they just get their cut for lending their name. However, the mouse they chose to market, is definitely a lower quality than the Logitech 5 button mouse. I have used 5 button mice since the mid 90's, using side buttons for copy and paste, and depressing the wheel for ENTER. Using a three button mouse from the Dollar Store is painful! Actually, my mice have 7 buttons. The wheel tilts for horizontal scrolling, but I never use that feature, or almost never. If it did not have horizontal scrolling, I would not miss it. Have FUN!

Two dogs were walking down the street. The one dog says to the other, "Wait here a minute, I'll be right back." He walks across the street and sniffs this fire hydrant for about a minute, then walks back across the street. The other dog says, "What was that about?" The dog first dog says, "Oh, I was just checking my p-mail."

>From Elsinore When I was 28, I was teaching English to high school freshmen in a school where occasionally the faculty and staff were allowed to dress down. One of those days I donned a sweatshirt and slacks. A student came in and his eyes widened. "Wow!" he exclaimed. "You should wear clothes like that every day. You look twenty, maybe even thirty years younger!"
