Hump over the Bump Day - 10/30/12 08:46 PM

"Just when you think there's nothing to write about, Nixon says, 'I am not a crook.' Jimmy Carter says, 'I have lusted after women in my heart.' President Reagan says, 'I have just taken a urinalysis test, and I am not on dope.'" Art Buchwald

One day the Pope is coming to America in his Limo and he said to the driver, "Why don't you let me drive for ones."
The driver thinks to him self, "Well I can't say no to this guy, he's the pope." So the driver pulls over and they change places. The Pope was having fun, hauling butt down the freeway, dogging cars. After a while the driver taps on the window and tells the Pope, "slow down a bit, you might get pulled over."
The Pope says, "ahhh, don't worry about it, I'm the Pope." So he rolls up the window and continues to drive very fast. After a few moments he gets pulled over. The cop walks to the car and the Pope rolls down the tinted window. The cop sees the Pope and says, "oh, I, ehhh, sorry, can you hold on a minute."
The Pope says, "sure"
The cop walks back to his car and radios back to the station. He says, "guys I just pulled over some one really important."
They ask who, "The President?."
"No more important."
"The president of another country."
"No more important."
"An ambassador."
"No even more important."
"Well who is it."
"I don't know, but the Pope is their chauffeur."

A woman who was rather old-fashioned, delicate, and elegant - especially in her language - was planning a week's vacation in Florida so she wrote to a particular campground and asked for a reservation.

She wanted to make sure the campground was fully equipped, but didn't quite know how to ask about the toilet facilities. She just couldn't bring herself to write the word "TOILET" in her letter. After much deliberation, she finally came up with the old-fashioned term "BATHROOM COMMODE." But when she wrote that down, she still thought she was being too forward. So, she started all over again, rewrote the letter and referred to the bathroom commode merely as the B.C. "Does the campground have it's own B.C.?" is what she actually wrote.

Well, the campground owner wasn't old-fashioned at all and when he got the letter, he just couldn't figure out what the woman was talking about. That B.C. business really stumped him.

After worrying about it for a while, he showed the letter to several campers, but they couldn't imagine what the lady meant either. So the campground owner, finally coming to the conclusion that the lady must be asking about the location of the local Baptist Church, sat down and wrote the following reply:
"Dear Madam: Regret very much in the delay in answering you letter. I now take the pleasure in informing you that a B.C. is located nine miles north of the campground and is capable of seating 250 people atone time. I admit it is quite a distance away if you are in the habit of going regularly, but no doubt you will be pleased to know that a great number of people usually take their lunches along and make a day of it. They usually arrive early and stay late."

"The last time my wife and I went was six years ago and it was so crowded that we had to stand up the whole time we were there. It may interest you to know that right now, there is a supper being planned to raise money to buy more seats. They're going to hold it in the basement of the B.C."

"I would like to say it pains me very much not to be able to go more regularly but it is sure no lack of desire on my part. As we grow older, it seems to be more of an effort, particularly in cold weather."

"If you do decide to come down to our campground, perhaps I could go with you the first time you go, sit with you, and introduce you to all the other folks."

"Remember, this is a friendly community."
A state trooper pulled a car over and told the man driving that he was going 50 mph in a 40 mph zone. "I was only going 40!" the driver protested.
"Not according to my radar," the trooper said.
"Yes, I was!" the man shouted back.
"No you weren't!" the trooper said.

With that, the man's wife leaned toward the window and said, "Officer, I should warn you not to argue with my husband when he's been drinking."

A group of friends who went deer hunting separated into pairs for the day. That night, one hunter returned alone, staggering under a hugh buck. "Where's Harry?", asked another hunter.

"He fainted a couple miles up the trail," Harry's partner answered. "You left him lying there alone and carried the deer back?"

"It was a tough decision," said the hunter. "But I figured no one is going to steal Harry."

A man sat quietly reading his morning paper one Sunday morning. Suddenly,
he is knocked almost senseless by his wife, who stands behind him holding
a frying pan in hand.

Man: "What was that for?"

Wife: "Why do you have a piece of paper in your pocket with "Daisy"
written on it?"

Man: "Oh honey, don't you remember two weeks ago when I went to the horse
races? Daisy was the name of the horse I bet on."

The wife was satisfied, and appologized for bonking him.

Three days later he is again sitting reading the paper when once again he
is bonked on the head.

Man: "What's that for this time?"

Wife: "Your horse called."

Good morning everyboomie. wave

Welcome to mid-week. smirk

I hope you enjoy all of the jokes thoroughly. happydance

I've tested them out personally while on tour doing my stand-up routine. thumbsup

I'm currently back at home working on my sit-down routine. yes

Soon, however, I'll be doing active research on my "lay-down" routine. tired

I'll publish my research results just as soon as I complete my blind study, on my theory that the more I sleep, the more I want to sleep. razz

Have a happy day. yay

Good morning and have a great day Joe, Ana, Gimli, Haroula, Gerry, Gail, Connie, Nan, soot and all who come in after me. wave

Just popping in for a quick hello this morning, as I'm not feeling the greatest. It's my friend's birthday today, and we were supposed to go out, but she's feeling even worse than I am. frown So we're going to wait until Saturday and see how we are then.

As for today, I'm going to get some rest, maybe even play some Cognition later. smile

Hope everyone has a Happy Halloween and a terrific Wednesday! cat

Hi Boomies,

Haroula: that is a sad experience for you and for your son. Guess he has to learn the lesson that live isn't always fair (and that one really shouldn't use the phone while driving!). I hope the old Lady is all right. Hugs

Hi Gerry and Connie and Soot and Darlene

Gail: thank you for your welcome! Missed you all too!

Hi lovely Nan: I'am in Switzerland and Internet is always working here. it's my Italian Internet connection that is mostly inextistent. I hope Sandy isn't howling round your house! Hugs

Venus: get well soon.

Looney: I'am praying that coming night is a better one for you kissy

I'am cooking dinner now and then it's tea and fruits and a good book for me. Have a wonderful Halloween day and trick and treat night (knock knock). pumpkin

Stay away from witch and ghost2 but not from cookies. I heard Lotus was baking cupcakes!

Hiya Boomies.

Busy morning. Went to the grocery store then took Cory for a walk. Now lunch is over and Bill has started disconnecting the old dishwasher. New one will be delivered tomorrow. In the meantime, I am getting dishpan hands. lol

We will be going up to Ginny's house tonight to decorate. Will take some pics, then tomorrow, will be there to get pics as she comes in the door.

Weather is cool but clear with temps going up to the mid 50's. Will grill some steaks out tonight.

I have not had time to play any games, so think I will go play something now.

A great day to everyone.

Re: Hump over the Bump Day - 10/31/12 02:22 PM

Hi guys. It's been a day. I saw my landlady at the post office this morning. She handed me a registered letter. She said it was an eviction notice. Seems her daughter wants my apartment as she passed papers on her house and needs to move in in 30 days. As I had no lease Maureen(my landlady) can do that. So I need to start checking what's available and start packing. I wanted to start looking for another place to live as I have the landlady from hell but I wasn't in so much of a hurry to move......Now I have to. I'm thinking of some choice swear words but as I'm a lady you won't have to listen to them. But you can read my lips if you want to. rotfl

Re: Hump over the Bump Day - 10/31/12 02:37 PM

I'm so sorry, Midgie! I will join you in the silent swearing. You've been so patient and forgiving with her, and this is what you get for it. You're better off, and you'll be in my thoughts and prayers that you'll find a much nicer place to live.

Re: Hump over the Bump Day - 10/31/12 03:55 PM

Oh Midge! So sorry for your predicament. Being a Landlord, I know all the rules and you might wanna check on Mass laws for the month to month agreement you had. In Calif, if a tenant has lived there more than a year, WE have to give 60 days notice. Maybe it's the same in Mass? If so you have more time. Crossing my fingers for you.

AND just in case you want to push the matter, you might try telling your Landlady that you can't possibly move so soon due to lack of funds and maybe you can wangle her into giving you $$$$ to move out. I had to do that with a tenant. Was happy to pay her to leave. Saved me a bunch of trouble because I suspected she was going to NOT move at all. (2 days before out date, and nothing was happening).

Hope it all works out. I empathize with you totally.

Re: Hump over the Bump Day - 10/31/12 04:47 PM

Sorta her eviction letter said for every day I stay over the 30 days she's charging me $100.00 a day. I just want to find a nicer landlady. I was a landlady for years so I know what you mean. I've really had it. Over, done. I'll find another place.

Re: Hump over the Bump Day - 10/31/12 06:06 PM

Haroula, so sorry you and your son had to see such a thing. I know it must have been a heck of a shock.

Ana, sorry that you had a bad day, but tomorrow is bound to be better! smile

Midge, it's a [blip] shame what some people will do, but this may be a blessing in disguise. You may suddenly find yourself in a much better apartment with a decent landperson. I'm hoping so anyway.

I wanted to go bowling Tuesday. I hadn't been bowling in many years. That got blown away with the hurricane. It was extremely fortunate for me that that was the worse thing to happen to me.
I'm going to try again on Friday.

Must do laundry tomorrow and I've some calls to make. Will have to deal with some things I've been avoiding.

Hope everyone is okay. All get a good night's sleep. smile
