One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory. --- Rita Mae Brown Love is the delightful interval between meeting a beautiful girl and discovering that she looks like a haddock. --- John Barrymore (1882 - 1942) "I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying." --- Oscar Wilde ______________________________________________________ I wondered if I could get my husband to address Christmas cards, as I had so much to do. I arranged everything we needed, then hopefully pulled up a chair and said, "Come on, Dear, let's get these out of the way." He glanced at the array on the table, turned away and went into the den, only to return moments later with a high stack of cards, stamped, sealed, and addressed. "They're last year's," he said. "I forgot to mail them. Now let's go out to dinner and relax. You've been working too hard." ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ As I drove into a parking lot, I noticed that a pickup truck with a dog sitting behind the wheel was rolling toward a female pedestrian. She seemed oblivious, so I hit my horn to get her attention. She looked up just in time to jump out of the way of the truck's path, and the vehicle bumped harmlessly into the curb and stopped. I rushed to the woman's side to see if she was all right. "I'm fine," she assured me, "but I hate to think what could have happened to me if that dog hadn't honked." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ >From Regina After a recent move, I made up a list of companies, agencies, and services that needed to know my new address and phoned each one to ask for the change to be made. Everything went smoothly until I called one of my frequent flier accounts. After I explained to the representative what I wanted to do, the woman told me, "I'm sorry; we can't do that over the phone. You will have to fill out our change-of address form." "How do I get one of those?" I asked. "We'd be happy to provide you with one," she said pleasantly. "May I have your new address so that I can mail it to you?" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dominick Smith, 33, Tulsa, Oklahoma Babysitter broke sobbing toddler’s bones then dumped him near a hospital to die A babysitter broke a two year-old boy’s bones because he would not stop crying before dumping him at a hospital to die. Dominick Smith, 33, was sentenced to life in prison last Friday for shaking, hitting, dropping and whipping King Owens, leaving the youngster with broken ribs and a skull fracture. Smith, who was cleared of murder but convicted of child neglect, also gave the toddler half a bottle of powerful sleep-aid NyQuil in a bid to get him to sleep. Two year-old King Owens was battered to death by babysitter Dominick Smith because he wouldn’t stop crying. She was sentenced to life in prison Friday Smith’s boyfriend Johnny Jones is serving 40 years in jail after being convicted of the same crime earlier this year. And King’s mom Keyshawn Brown, who had enjoyed a lengthy friendship with her son’s killers, will stand trial on identical charges next April, Tulsa World reported And King’s mom Keyshawn Brown, who had enjoyed a lengthy friendship with her son’s killer, will stand trial on identical charges next April, Tulsa World reported. During Smith’s trial, her defense attorney tried to claim Jones was behind the appalling catalog of abuse suffered by King. But jurors agreed with prosection claims that the babysitter, who began caring for King three weeks before his death, was behind the violence. In her closing argument, prosecutor Andrea Brown said: ‘Can you imagine watching that baby suffer for even a minute and not do something about it?’
From: Len Re: Cold Laptop Dear Webby I know you used to carry a laptop on the dogsled in the Yukon. Do you know if today's laptops can handle the cold, for example being locked in the truck while I am working? Thanks Len Dear Len Absolutely no problem. Just open it up and let it warm up for a few minutes before turning it on, and it will be fine. Any condensation it attracts while warming up, will be baked out of it in the first half hour. Computers can handle the cold a lot easier than heat, and the most fragile part is the keyboard. Get yourself a cheap but comfortable 16" - 17" keyboard and stick it into your laptop case. The laptop will last longer, and so will your hands and wrists. Have FUN! DearWebby

___________________________________________________ John was tasked with bringing the Christmas decorations up from the basement and start decorating the house and tree. During one trek up the stairs, heavily laden with boxes, he slipped and luckily only fell about two steps before landing square on his behind. His wife heard the noise and yelled, "What was that thump?" "I just fell down the stairs," he explained. She rushed into the room, "Anything broken?!" "No, no, I'm fine." There was just a slight pause before his loving wife said, "No, I meant my decorations? Are any of them broken?" ___________________________________________________ "Now tell me, Miss Jones," said the senior partner to the very junior employee, "what is the purpose of a vacation?" "To impress upon the employees that the company can get along without them," she responded promptly. ___________________________________________________

A woman who plays cards one night a month with a group of friends was concerned that she always woke up her husband when she came home around 11:30. One night she decided to try not to rouse him. She undressed in the living room and, purse over arm, tiptoed nude into the bedroom - only to find her husband sitting up in bed reading. "Dammit woman!" he exclaimed. "Did you lose everything?"
