Ninety-eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hard-working, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity.

'May I see the new baby?' she asked. 'Not yet,' She said 'I'll make coffee and we can visit for a while first.' Thirty minutes had passed, and Joyce asked, 'May I see the new baby now?' 'No, not yet,' She said. After another half hour elapsed, Joyce asked again, 'May I see the baby now?' 'No, not yet,' replied my friend. Growing very impatient, she asked, 'Well, when can I see the baby?' 'WHEN HE CRIES!' she told her. 'WHEN HE CRIES?' Joyce demanded. 'Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?'

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Josie Bigelow, 14, Leehigh Acres, Florida Florida girl stole Pizza Delivery vehicle Needing a ride to her boyfriend’s house, a Florida Girl yesterday ordered pizzas to a neighbor’s house and then popped out of some nearby bushes and stole the car driven by a Papa John’s deliveryman, police allege. As detailed in a police report, Josie Bigelow, 14, placed the phony food order early Wednesday to lure the victim to a street near her home in Lehigh Acres, a Fort Myers suburb. As the driver walked to the front door of a residence with pizza in hand, Bigelow emerged from some nearby woods and hopped into the 49-year-old deliveryman’s unlocked 2006 Ford Taurus. Bigelow was subsequently arrested about six miles from the heist scene, where investigators say she sought to ditch the hot wheels in a stranger’s driveway. Before getting collared, the girl twice escaped from a pursuing sheriff’s deputy. The teenager, seen above, was arrested around 3:15 AM for grand theft auto and booked into the local juvenile detention center (from which she was released after a few hours in custody). In an interview with a local TV station, Bigelow’s father said the juvenile “needs an ass whipping...That and jail.” Joseph Bigelow also told police that his daughter “has fallen in with a bad crowd” and mentioned “how bad her behavior had been recently. I wonder who taught her how to drive well enough to get away from the deputies twice, with am old Ford Taurus. For a 14 year old, that is quite amazing!
From: Sharon Re: Setting a restore point Dear DearWebby, I love your humor & beautiful pictures I have saved many & sent many on to others. Can you explain in simple terms for a "dummy" what it a restore point & how do I do one? Will Il lose all the current data such as saved mail, graphics etc? Should it be put on a disk for backup? Since I had the problem with the old pc I thought about doing one for this one. I'm not having any problems here now. Thanks for all your patience & helpful tips. Sharon Dear Sharon The restore point is just for Windows settings, and not for your data. All your data is perfectly safe. When everything is working just right, that is the time to make a restore point. If an experiment goes wrong, you can restore the system settings to that good restore point. Many people schedule restore points to be set automatically once per week. To set a System Restore Point... Open the Start menu Open the Programs menu Open the Accessories menu Open the System Tools menu Finally, start System Restore Pick the option for setting a System Restore Point and click on the Next button Fill in a name for the restore point so you can find it and click on the Create button Click on the Close button when done Have FUN! DearWebby

Dr. Bloom was known for his miracle cures for arthritis. One day, his waiting room was full of people when in shuffles a little old lady, bent nearly double, leaning on her cane. When her name was called, she ambled into the patient visitation area and, amazingly, emerged less than thirty minutes later, walking completely upright, with her head held high. A woman who had seen the old lady come in to the office stood and approached her. "This is incredible!" she exclaimed. "You walked through that door bent in half, and now you're walking as straight and tall as a young woman! What kind of miracle did that doctor DO for you?" The old lady looks the woman in the eye and says, "Miracle, shmiracle ... he gave me a longer cane."

>From Thor The generation gap proved glaringly obvious at the mail-order music company where my wife works as a customer service representative. Some college students, who were working part-time inputting customer information, wrote the following notes regarding some golden oldies: "Customer is looking for two song titles: 'Shovel Off Two Buffaloes' and 'Honey, Suck a Rose.'" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Hanging Linens To prevent creases when hanging linens from wire hangers, take a cardboard tube from a used up roll of paper towels and cut lengthwise. Then slip it over the wire hanger and apply tape where you cut the tube. Then you can rest your linens on the tube instead of the wire. ____________________________________________________

A man requested Lynn, a locally well known painter, to paint him in the nude. "No" she said. "I don't do that sort of thing." "I'll increase your fee two times," he said. "No, no thanks!!" "I'll give five times as much as you normally get." "Okay," said Lynn, "but you have to let me at least wear my socks or a belt. I need somewhere to put my brushes." ___________________________________________________
