She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, has your plane arrived yet?" -------------- Believe it or not, that is indeed standard procedure at United Airlines. She DID ask me exactly that.

>From Donna Upon retiring from the service, my husband, Don, needed a new ID card showing he had gone from active duty to retirement status. But the photo taken of him was not particularly good and he wasn't at all quiet about it. "If I have to carry that ID around with me for the rest of my life," he complained to the photographer, "I want a better picture." "Want a better picture?" asked the photographer defiantly. "Then bring us a better face!"

A lion woke up one morning feeling really rowdy and mean. He went out and cornered a small monkey and roared, "Who is mightiest of all jungle animals?" The trembling monkey says, "You are, mighty lion! Later, the lion confronts a wildebeast and fiercely bellows, "Who is the mightiest of all jungle animals?" The terrified wildebeast stammers, "Oh great lion, you are by far the mightiest animal in the jungle!" On a roll now, the lion swaggers up to an elephant and roars, "Who is mightiest of all jungle animals?" Fast as lightning, the elephant snatches up the lion with his trunk, slams him against a tree half a dozen times. The lion feels like he had been run over by a safari wagon. The elephant then stomps on the lion till he looks like a corn tortilla and ambles away. The lion lets out a moan of pain, lifts his head weakly and hollers after the elephant, "Just because you don't know the answer, you don't have to get so upset about it!" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Salt for BBQ Flare Ups Keep some salt handy when grilling. When you get flare ups from fat or juices dripping in the grill, just toss some salt on the flames and they will die down. Always have a fire extinguisher or hose handy, just in case. NEVER EVER use water if frying oil flares up! A bit of patience does the same trick. Those drippings just flare and are gone in a few seconds. However, if you are making French Fries on the BBQ, and the oil catches on fire, do not throw salt and especially not water at it. Napalm is much safer than a grease or oil fire with water thrown into it. A two gallon pot of burning grease can make a fire and mushroom cloud, that can be seen from space, if you throw a cup of water into it. Always have a lid or cover handy. Just put a cover on it, then calmly, and with no need to hurry, turn the burners off or move the pan or pot away from the hot area. A frying pan, even a piece of plywood or gyprock, any cover will work fine. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ A captain and several of his officers were returning to the ship after a long evening ashore. As they climbed the gangway the Captain threw up all over himself. Pointing to a seaman above him he shouted, "Give that man five days in the brig for vomiting!" The following morning the captain was checking the log and saw that the young seaman had been sentenced to ten days and asked the chief mate why. "Well Sir, when we got you undressed we found that he`d also crapped in your pants." ___________________________________________________ In the window of a Kentucky appliance store: "Don't kill your wife.

The flight home from a recent business trip was pretty empty. So the pilot made a simple request of the passengers. "We have a little extra room tonight, folks," he said over the PA system. "So if you wouldn't mind, please take a window seat so the competition thinks the plane is full." ___________________________________________________
