Sunday Morning

Sunday Morning - 10/06/12 10:59 PM

Old age is like everything else. To make a success of it, you've got to start young.
Fred Astaire

One evening, after attending the theater, two gentlemen were walking down the avenue when they observed a rather well dressed and attractive young lady walking ahead of them. One of them turned to the other and remarked, "I'd give $250 to spend the night with that woman."

Much to their surprise, the young lady overheard their remark, turned around, and replied, "I'll take you up on that offer."

She had a neat appearance and a pleasant voice, so after bidding his companion good night, the man accompanied the young lady to her apartment.

The following morning, as he prepared to leave, the man gave her $125. She demanded the rest of the money, stating, "If you don't give me the other $125 I'll sue you for it."

He laughed, saying "I'd like to see you get it on these grounds."

Within a few days, he was surprised when he received a summons ordering his presence in court as a defendant in a lawsuit. He hurried to his lawyer and explained the details of the case.

His lawyer said, "She can't possibly get a judgment against you on such grounds, but it will be interesting to see how her case will be presented."

After the usual preliminaries, the lady's Lawyer addressed the court as follows:

"Your honor, my client, this lady, is the owner of a piece of property, a garden spot, surrounded by a profuse growth of shrubbery, which property she agreed to rent to the defendant for a specified length of time for the sum of $250. The defendant took possession of the property, used it extensively for the purposes for which it was rented, but upon evacuating the premises, he paid only $125, one-half of the amount agreed upon. The rent was not excessive, since it is restricted property, and we ask judgment be granted against the defendant to assure payment of the balance."

The defendant's Lawyer was not only surprised but also impressed AND amused by the way his opponent had presented the case. Naturally, his defense was somewhat different from the way he originally planned to present it. He rose to the occasion!

'Your honor," he said, "my client agrees that the lady has a fine piece of property, that he did rent such property for a time, and a degree of pleasure was derived from the transaction. However, my client found a well on the property around which he placed his own stones, sunk a shaft, and erected a pump, all labor performed personally by him. We claim these improvements to the property were sufficient to offset the unpaid amount, and that the plaintiff was adequately compensated for the rental of said property. We, therefore, ask that judgment not be granted."

The young lady's lawyer answered, "Your honor, my client agrees that the defendant did find a well on her property. However, had the defendant not known that the well existed, he would never have rented the property. Also, upon evacuating the premises, the defendant removed the stones, pulled out the shaft, and took the pump with him. In doing so, he not only dragged the equipment through the shrubbery, but left the hole much larger than it was prior to his occupancy, making the property much less desirable to others. We, therefore, ask that judgment be granted."

In the Judge's decision, he provided for two options: "Pay the balance $125 to the plaintiff, or have the equipment detached from its current location and provide it to the plaintiff for damages."

The defendant wrote out a check immediately.

Case closed!

Eight year old Sally brought her report card home from school. Her marks were good, mostly A's and a couple of B's. However, her teacher had written across the bottom:

"Sally is a smart little girl, but she has one fault. She talks too much in school. I have an idea I am going to try, which I think may break her of the habit."

Sally's dad signed her report card, putting a note on the back: "Please let me know if your idea works on Sally because I would like to try it out on her mother."

Good morning, Gameboomers!

Like a lot of places it's chilly and rainy here today. Glad there's no need to go out today. My plans for the day include getting the apartment all spiffy clean and then finishing one of the games I've started. (Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe). lol

Wishing health and a great Sunday to all. Connie you provide the best breakfasts... thumbsup (What does NC stand for? think)

Overcast day. Weather guys are predicting 'rain'. Well actually more of a drizzle but you never can tell. I think this area (my little camelot) will never see a drop. Gonna go for my morning walk and hope I get drenched. Not holding my breath though.

No fireworks last night, but there's always tonight. Hope that fireman and his police friends can squelch this stupidity once and for all. It's only one house, all these years and no one has done anything. I think it's the fear of retaliation from someone. Never can tell.

AND lately, crime has been encroaching on my little area. First the burning down of that half-way house or Care house, then the shooting by police of the gal who ran him down during an arrest of another guy, then a speed contest resulting in the death of a Ninja motorcycle guy, then a car crash into a house, then the police chase/crash from a couple stealing a puppy (puppy returned safe). I wondered why 3 police cars whizzed by. Guess it was the chase. All this on the SAME street 5 blocks apart in total with all incidents! This street is only TWO blocks over from me! I think we need some sage and perhaps an exorcist. Getting very close to home here with all the stuff going on over there. scared

Super Sunday ya'll puppy

We all slept in quite late. I was getting worried about Soot as he never sleeps late. I was about to resort to putting a mirror over his mouth to make sure he was breathing when he got up.

We are all hoping for a quiet day! We shall see. Hubby and I would like to game. Right now son and the boys are playing Wii but they turned the volume down below my smacking level.

Joe, I love love love those Alabama country songs. I had to look them up to see if they were real. rotfl Happy snuggling!

Ana, I think you need to make a video of you slacking to convince folks you really did. Enjoy!

MaG, stay warm.

Manx, are you having company?

Cailyn, is the campground quiet yet?

Gerry, what are you up to today?

Venus wave

Connie, so glad your grandson got a job. Have fun shopping.

Quest, can you build a fire in the fireplace and snuggle down with some hot chocolate?

My, spaghetti is the perfect cold weather food.

Darlene, birthday to son.

Haroula, wave

Sharon, sounds like a great day.

Sorta, I hope it settles down soon.

Soot kissy

Re: Sunday Morning - 10/07/12 01:39 PM

L4L, you have a great sense of humor -the mirror thing.

Well, my son and his friend from work made it over here and assured me no shooting at animals. Friend has a machete to hack through the chaparrel and they packed up all their paraphanelia and took off in back. Soon after I noticed their car was gone -Oh gosh the machete!! I ran where the car was -no blood, I explored a bit in the pasture, no blood but some weeds were cut down. Worry big time. Steve's (son) phone number is not in service -really worry now because it's been awhile -now did someone steal the car? Mothers worry. Explored some more and spied the car wayyyy up the little farm road. They had come back, loaded up all the stuff and drove near a good shooting area. Next time they will tell me when they take the car. You betcha!

Cold here too. So cold I turned on the furnace. Nice warm house now. Cold winter has been predicted for us.

happy Sunday all

You all are funny! Okay, I have not been slugging but the intent was there. I went to Costco, Starbucks and Lowes and now headed to Meijers to get my veggies and fruits. When I get home, I am heading to the park with the dogs. I really did try. grin

Hi Boomies!

I'd be more than happy to send you my heat! I'm sick of it! Still in mid-90s here, With AC on. Praying for cool fall weather. I really want to shut it down and open the windows. <sigh>
Still looking around for a part-time job I'd enjoy. Not much out there at the moment that I'm qualified for.
My 4 cats and I are feeling fine and keeping busy. Sending special toughts and prayers for those in need. Have a lovely Sunday!

Good Afternoon Boomers

Rushed off this morning to church and didn't get a chance to stop in.
Stopped at Pet Co on the way home and bought some Glowfish for my fishtank. They are so cool. they show up neon in the tank and I was surprised they get along with the Tropical varieties also.

I'm here for hot coffee and leftover goodies. Cailyn is the coffee still hot?

Re: Sunday Morning - 10/07/12 06:59 PM

You never stop to think how a minute in time can change someone's life. I left to take the dogs to the park, hiked a couple miles and came back only to be cut off access to my street. A house down the street that I just passed not an hour before was now just a burned out shell. sad It was a chimney fire that went to the attic and spread quickly. Fortunately the family got out but the house has significant damage. You just never give much thought to how it just takes a second to change your life. I feel so badly for them.

Re: Sunday Morning - 10/07/12 11:51 PM

That is sad. Yes, everything can indeed change in a second.

Hubby and I have been playing but my tummy has decreed that it does not want to play anymore so I'm heading upstairs for a date with my heating pad. Sleep well all sleep
