Today's Bonehead Award: Florida man attempts to hide underwater from cops, gets arrested after coming up for air __________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! _______________________________________________ Punctuality is the virtue of the bored. --- Evelyn Waugh (1903 - 1966) There's only one way to have a happy marriage and as soon as I learn what it is I'll get married again. --- Clint Eastwood (1930 - ) _____________________________________________ After an overnight flight to meet my father at his latest military assignment, my mother wearily arrived at Rhein-Main Air Base in Germany with my eight siblings and me - all under age 11. Collecting our many suitcases, the ten of us entered the cramped customs area. A young customs official watched our entourage in disbelief, "Ma'am," he said, "do all these children and this luggage belong to you?" "Yes, sir," my mother said with a sigh. "They're all mine." The customs agent began his interrogation: "Ma'am, do you have any weapons, contraband or illegal drugs in your possession?" "Sir," she calmly answered, "if I'd had any of those items, I would have used them by now." ________________________________________________` ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Daniel Christopher Booth, 36, Suwannee, Floriduh Florida man attempts to hide underwater from cops, gets arrested after coming up for air A Florida man attempted a “not so great escape” last week when he tried hiding from deputies underwater in a pond – an “action movie” stunt that officials easily foiled when he came up for air, authorities said. Daniel Christopher Booth, 36, had warrants out for his arrest in Baker County for selling methamphetamine, the Suwanee County Sheriff’s Office wrote Wednesday on Facebook. When a deputy attempted to arrest Booth at his job at a solar power plant, the sheriff’s office said, the 36-year- old ran away and dove into a pond. “Now we can only assume that Mr. Booth has seen one too many action movies and thought he could hide from the K9 teams, from Suwannee CI and Mayo CI by hiding under the water in a pond,” the post read. Deputies quickly spotted Booth when he came to the surface for air and made the arrest, according to the post. Booth was transported “soaking wet” to the Suwanee County Jail, the sheriff’s office said, adding several comical hashtags, including “#NotRambo.” He faces additional charges for the ill-planned escape attempt. ---------- I have swum in Floriduh one January. The water is COLD, especially when I am almost passing out from heat stroke before jumping in!
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Myrna Re: PayPal at Amazon Dear Webby, I can't see a PayPal button at Amazon. Does PayPal not work there? Why not? Myrna Dear Myrna No, it doesn't. PayPal used to be a subsidiary of eBay, the top competitor of Amazon. Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon, is still in a snit about that, and has no intention of starting to cooperate. Officially, that would give their competitor information about their clients, but actually, it's just that Jeff Bezos is in a snit. If you can't get a regular credit or debit card, get a PayPal debit MasterCard. You don't need credit for that, and even if your daughters abused your credit cards and put them beyond a recoverable limit, a debit card just works with money, you have in your account. Just put some money into your PayPal account, and use that money with the Debit card. You can get those at Automatically move ALL your settings and programs.
A group of senior citizens were exchanging notes about their ailments. "My arm is so weak I can hardly hold this coffee cup." "Yes, I know. My cataracts are so bad I can't see to pour the coffee." "I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck." "My blood pressure pills make my dizzy." "I guess that's the price we pay for getting old." "Well, it's not all bad. We should be thankful that we can still drive!"

___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Rooting a Spider Plant There is a very large spider plant at my kids' school. One day when I was there I was able to collect a small baby plant from it. I brought it home and put it into the lab flask that I use for rooting plants. I filled it with water so that the bottom of the plant was submerged. Over the next few weeks it began rooting and is now ready to be planted in soil. It was much easier than I had expected. Now it can continue growing and make its own little baby plants. :)I brought it home and put it into the lab flask that I use for rooting plants.

"If you do," he went on, "I'll tell you what dad said to the maid when you were at the beauty shop." His mother's ears perked up and, grabbing her purse, she handed over the money. "Well? What did he say?" "He said, 'Hey, Marie, make sure you wash my socks tomorrow!' " ___________________________________________________ Male Bashing Men are like ...

His parents had tried everything, tutors, flash cards, special learning centers, in short everything they could think of. Finally, in a last ditch effort, they took Tommy down and enrolled him in the local Catholic School. After the first day, Tommy came home with a very serious look on his face. He didn't kiss his mother hello. Instead, he went straight to his room and started studying. Books and paper were spread out all over his room and Tommy was working hard. His mother was amazed. She called him down to dinner and to her shock, the minute he was done he marched back to his room without a word and in no time was back hitting the books as hard as before. This went on day after day, while Tommy's mother tried to understand what made all the difference. Finally, Tommy brought home his report card. He quietly laid it on the table and went up to his room to hit the books. With great trepidation, his mom looked at it. To her surprise, Tommy got an A in Math. She could no longer hold her curiosity. She went to Tommy's room and asked, "Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?" Tommy looked at her and shook his head. "Well then, was it the books, the discipline, the structure, the uniforms, WHAT was it??" Tommy looked at her and said, "Well on the first day of school, when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they weren't fooling around." __________________________________________________
