Today's Bonehead Award: Parents who forgot toddler at park didn’t report her missing for 14 hours ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends. --- Baltasar Gracian _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A husband looking through the paper came upon a study that said women use more words than men. It read, "Men use about 15,000 words per day, but women use 30,000." Excited to prove to his wife that he had been right all along when he accused her of talking too much, he showed her the study results. The wife thought for a while, then finally she said to her husband, "It's because we have to repeat everything we say." The husband said, "What?" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Donny for this picture of his Easter Cactus _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jolanda Alexandre, 27, Makenson Alexandre, 34, Haverhill, Florida Parents who forgot toddler at park didn’t report her missing for 14 hours Deputies in Palm Beach County, Florida have arrested the parents of a toddler found wandering around a park alone Friday evening. Jolanda Larose Alexandre and Makenson Alexandre each face a charge of neglect of a child, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s office posted pictures of the girl on the station Facebook page after she was found by herself at Haverhill Park around 8 p.m., in hopes someone would know who she was. It wasn’t until 11:40 a.m. Saturday that the Alexandres, who have seven other children, called 911 to report the girl missing, according to the sheriff’s office. Jolanda Alexandre, 27 – whose first name is also spelled Yolanda, according to the Palm Beach Post – told authorities she and Makenson took the children to the park to play for an hour before bringing them home in her SUV. Jolanda said she assumed the girl was playing outside and fell asleep that evening, according to the paper, then woke up Saturday morning and “began looking frantically for” the child. Sheriff’s officials say Makenson, 34, admitted he hadn’t realized the 2-year-old was missing until Saturday morning while driving back to the park with the other children, the Post reported. Deputies say the Department of Children and Families went to the home and removed the seven other children. They now have a fresh start on building a new family. Both parents were booked Saturday and have been released after posting $3,000 bail.

An artist asked the gallery owner if there had been any real interest in his paintings which had been on display for the previous few weeks. 'I have good news and bad news, 'the owner replied. 'The good news is that a gentleman inquired about your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. When I told him it would, he bought all 17 of your paintings.' 'That's wonderful, absolutely marvelous', the artist exclaimed. 'What's the bad news?' 'The buyer was your doctor.'

A man was wheeling himself frantically down the hall of the hospital in his wheelchair, just before his operation. A nurse stopped him and asked, "What's the matter?" He said, "I heard the nurse say, 'It's a very simple operation, don't worry, I'm sure it will be all right.'" "She was just trying to comfort you, what's so frightening about that?" "She wasn't talking to me. She was talking to the doctor!" ___________________________________________________
