When they call the roll in the Senate, the Senators do not know whether to answer 'Present' or 'Not guilty.' --- Theodore Roosevelt Public speaking is the art of diluting a two-minute idea with a two-hour vocabulary. --- Evan Esar (1899 - 1995) I don't mind what Congress does, as long as they don't do it in the streets and frighten the horses. --- Victor Hugo (1802 - 1885) There's no point in being grown up if you can't be childish sometimes. --- Doctor Who ______________________________________________________ Judi had just returned to the United States from a month-long trip to Europe. She'd been to England, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Switzerland. John met her at the airline gate, hugged her, and asked, "So, how was your trip?" "Oh, it was terrible," she replied, "the whole place is just full of foreigners." ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ FOOTBALL PLAYERS at the high school where I worked were stealing the practice jerseys, so the coach ordered a set with "Property of Central High School" emblazoned on them. When the thefts continued, he ordered a new batch that had the imprint "Stolen from Central High School." But the jerseys still kept disappearing. The larceny finally stopped after he changed the wording to "Central High School 4th String." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ As the family gathered for a big dinner together, the youngest son had an announcement to make: He'd just signed up at an army recruiter's office. There were audible gasps around the table, then some laughter, as his older brothers shared their disbelief that he could handle this new situation. "Oh, come on, quit pulling our legs," snickered one. "You didn't really do that, did you?" "I'm positive you'd never get through basic training," scoffed another. The new recruit looked to his mother for help; but she was just gazing at him. When she finally spoke, it was to voice a single question. "Do you really plan to make your own bed every morning?" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

From:Jerry Re: SBCglobal downtime Dear Webby Just a curiosity question. Denise has SBCglobal.net email and it had been down the last few Christmases. I was guessing overload due to so many Holiday e-cards being delivered/read, etc. Her email is back up right now (her work address never went down). Just wondering if my guess could have been correct, or if it might have been some other problem. Thanks Jerry Dear Jerry SBCglobal is part of Yahoo. Their UNreliability is quite predictable. Yes, of course their mail went down every Christmas, and Valentines and Mothers Day. If she wants reliable email, she should get a gmail address. Gmail is free, and has become the most popular email system in the world. Have FUN! DearWebby

The census taker knocked on Donna's door. She answered all his questions except one. She refused to tell him her age. "But everyone tells their age to the census taker," he said. "Did Miss Maisy Hill, and Miss Daisy Hill tell you their ages?" she asked. "Certainly," he replied "Well, I'm the same age as they are," she snapped. "As old as the Hills," he intoned as he wrote on his form.

A woman's husband dies and she has only $20,000 to her name. After everything is done at the funeral home and cemetery, she tells her closest friend that she has no money left. The friend says, "How can that be? You told me you still had $20,000 left just a few days before your husband died. How could you be broke?" The widow says, "Well, the funeral home cost me $5,000. And of course, I had to make the obligatory donation to the temple, so that was another $5,000. The rest went for the memorial stone." The friend says, "$10,000 for the memorial stone? My goodness, how big was it?" Extending her left hand, the widow says, "Three carats." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Returning Items If you plan on returning an item that you received as a gift but don't have a receipt, you will want to do it within a week or so of Christmas.

A family had moved to Seattle from Texas, and each of them missed their old home. That December, when they went to pick up their first-grade son from school, his teacher told them about a conversation she overheard. One boy said, "We're Catholic, and we are going to Christmas Mass." "Were Jewish," said another child. "And we're going to have a Hanukkah celebration." Madison chimed in, "We're Texans, and were going to have a barbecue."
