The next day, a skinny little man showed up at the camp with his axe and knocked on the head lumberjack's door. The head lumberjack took one look at the little man and told him to leave. "Just give me a chance to show you what I can do," said the skinny man. "Okay, see that giant cedar over there?" said the lumberjack. "Take your axe and go cut it down." The skinny man headed for the tree, and in five minutes he was back knocking on the lumberjack's door. "I cut the tree down," said the man. The lumberjack couldn't believe his eyes and said, "Where did you get the skill to chop down trees like that?" "In the Sahara Forest," replied the puny man. "You mean the Sahara Desert ?" asked the lumberjack. The little man laughed and answered back, "Yes, I suppose, that's what they call it now!" ______________________________________________________ Actually, it is easier in the mountains.

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Wendy Maureen Dennis, 42, Molino, Florida Woman Sentenced To Prison For Shooting At Husband After He Gave Her Divorce Papers A Molino woman has been sentenced to prison for shooting at her husband several times after he came home with divorce papers. Wendy Maureen Dennis, 42, was convicted by an Escambia County jury of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm. She was sentenced by Judge Jennie Kensey to 24 months in state prison to be followed by three years probation. In April 2018, her husband called 911 and stated that his wife had shot a gun at him multiple times before leaving their residence on North Highway 95A and heading toward Molino Road. Responding Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputies conducted a felony traffic stop on her vehicle and recovered a .22 caliber rifle that was in plain view on the backseat of the vehicle, according to an arrest report. She was taken into custody without incident. The husband told deputies that he brought home divorce paperwork to his wife of eight years, and everything was fine as they started to leave their residence to go to the tax collector’s office to have the papers notarized. According to the husband’s statement to deputies, she then walked to her car, retrieved the rifle, yelled at him and fired several shots in his direction. He was not injured. The couple’s divorce was finalized in August 2018, according to court records.
From: Gwen Re: XP to what? Dear DearWebby, Good Morning, here I am again with another question. Asking you because I do know that you will give me the right answer instead of calling a computer shop. I have a 19 year old DELL computer that I'm still running Windows XP on. As you can imagine a lot of things don't run correctly on it, i.e. Chrome from whom I got a message yesterday.  So, it looks like I need to install a new Operating System:  My question is what, and how? I'm not a novice at this computer thing but not a tech either, I'm somewhere in between and can usually figure things out but this one, I'm not sure how to go forward. So, hoping that the fella who knows so much will help. Love the jokes they give me a laugh every morning and some morning they are surely needed. God bless, keep up the good work, and hoping to hear from you soon. Gwen Dear Gwen Dell apparently still sells computers with W7 PRO. (Not W7 Home) Due to demand, they charge more for W7 PRO than for a regular W10, and you will have to do some arguing in order to get W7 PRO. W10 is what they sell by default. You can get ClassicShell to make W10 look and behave like W7 or even XP It is free at Have Fun! DearWebby

A spiritualist who'd recently been widowed met a colleague and reported excitedly that she'd just received a message from her dead husband - asking her to send him a pack of cigarettes. "The only thing is," she mused, "that I don't know where to send them." "Why not?" asked her friend. "Well, he didn't actually say that he was in Heaven - but I can't imagine he'd be in Hell." "Hm," responded the friend. "Well, maybe I shouldn't bring this up, but. . . did he mention anything about including matches in the package?"

A drunk stumbles across a baptismal service on Sunday afternoon down by the river. He proceeds to walk down into the water and stand next to the Preacher. The minister turns and notices the old drunk and says, "Mister, Are you ready to find Jesus?" The drunk, figuring that there might be some free celebrating included with the proceedings, looks back and says, "Yesch, Preacher..I shure am!" The minister then dunks the fellow under the water and pulls him right back up. "Have you found Jesus?" the preacher asked. "Nooo, I haven't!" said the drunk. The preacher then dunks him under for quite a bit longer, brings him up and says, "Now, brother, have you found Jesus?" "Noooo, I haven't, Rev!" The preacher in disgust holds the man under for at least 30 seconds this time, brings him out of the water and says in a harsh tone, "My God, man, have you found Jesus yet?" The old drunk wipes his eyes and says to the preacher... "Are you sure this is where he fell in?" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Sturdy Crayons When you get new crayons, wrap them with some masking tape, Leave the name uncovered, if you like.

___________________________________________________ At the candy store Judi had about 20 bags of candy. A smart-alek behind her in line told her: "You should push the air out of them. The candies might cost less if they don't have the weight of the air in them." So for a few minutes she let the air out of the bags. After she did that he told her it didn't really matter. It would have weighed the same. Judi was more confused than ever and said, "If having air in the bag doesn't weigh any more, then why does it make the bags look so fat?" ___________________________________________________ "I never would have married you if I knew how stupid you were!" shouted the woman to her husband! The husband replied, "You should've known how stupid I am, the minute I asked you to marry me!" ___________________________________________________
