Good-bye. I am leaving because I am bored.
George Saunders, last words

The hunchback of notre dame dies so they need to find a new bell-ringer. this guy with no arms comes along and says he can do it. "but you've got no arms!" everyone explains. He says I'll use my mouth.
So he uses his mouth to ring the bell and goes flying out of the window because the bell is so heavy.
He's lying dead on the ground and a big crowd gathers.
"who's that guy?" one person says.
"I dunno, but his face rings a bell!!"

During his visit to the United States the Pope met with President Clinton. Instead of just an hour as scheduled, the meeting went on for two days. Finally, a weary President Clinton emerged to face the waiting news media. The President was smiling and announced the summit was a resounding success. He said he and the Pope agreed on 80% of the matters they discussed. Then Mr. Clinton declared he was going home to the White House to be with his family. A few minutes later the Pope came out to make his statement. He looked tired, discouraged and was practically in tears. Sadly he announced his meeting with the President was a failure. Incredulous, one reporter asked, "But your Holiness, President Clinton just announced the summit was a great success and the two of you agreed on 80% of the items discussed." Exasperated, the Pope answered, "Yes, but we were talking about the Ten Commandments.".

An elderly couple were driving across the country. The woman was driving when she got pulled over by the highway patrol. The officer said, "Ma'am did you know you were speeding?" The woman, hard of hearing, turns to her husband and asks, "What did he say?" The old man yells, "He says you were speeding!" The patrolman says, "May I see your license?" The woman turns to her husband and asks again, "What did he say?" The old man yells, "He wants to see your license!" The woman gave the officer her license. The patrolman says, "I see you are from Arkansas. I spent some time there once and went on a blind date with the ugliest woman I've ever seen." The woman turned to her husband and asked, "What did he say?" And the old man yells, "He said he knows you!".

How Dogs and Men Are the Same 1. Both take up too much space on the bed. 2. Both have irrational fears about vacuum cleaning. 3. Both mark their territory. 4. Neither tells you what's bothering them. 5. The smaller ones tend to be more nervous. 6. Both have an inordinate fascination with women's crotches. 7. Neither does any dishes. 8. Both [blip] shamelessly. 9. Neither of them notice when you get your hair cut. 10. Both like dominance games. 11. Both are suspicious of the postman. 12. Neither understands what you see in cats. How Dogs Are Better Than Men 1. Dogs do not have problems expressing affection in public. 2. Dogs miss you when you're gone. 3. Dogs feel guilty when they've done something wrong. 4. Dogs admit when they're jealous. 5. Dogs are very direct about wanting to go out. 6. Dogs do not play games with you, except fetch (and they never laugh at how you throw). 7. You can train a dog. 8. Dogs are easy to buy for. 9. The worst social disease you can get from dogs is fleas (OK, really, the worst disease you can get from them is rabies, but there's a vaccine for it and you can kill the one that gives it to you). 10. Dogs understand what "no" means. 11. Dogs mean it when they kiss you.

One day a man and his wife are playing golf at their home course. On a certain par four, the man tees it up and hits a big slice into the woods. They find his ball directly behind one of the greenskeeper's buildings where equipment is stored, so that he can't play toward the green at all. "[blip]!" the man says, "I'll have to play sideways to get back on the fairway. I'll make five at best." But his wife, who had been looking things over, said "Look, this shed has double doors at both ends. If we open them up, you can hit a low shot right through the building toward the green." The man congratulated his wife on her cleverness and they set up for the shot. But the ball hit the top of the far doorframe and came whistling back, striking his wife in the temple and killing her dead on the spot. A year or so later, the same man was playing the same par 4 and hit his tee shot in almost exactly the same spot as before, right behind the building. As he is cursing his luck and preparing to swing, one of his playing partners says, "Wait, look we can open these double doors and..." "No way," the man says, cutting him off. "I was here last year and tried that shot and ended up making a six."

A new preacher told his wife he was going to preach on water skiing.
She said you can't preach on water skiing. If you do I am not going, so she stayed home in the house behind the church. As the preacher listened to the singing and got ready to preach and thought, I don't know anything about water skiing, I think I'll preach on sex.
After church a deacon walked by the house and told the preachers wife it sure was a good sermon.
The preachers wife said I'm really surprised. He only tried it twice and fell off both times.

Bill and Hillary are out driving in the country near Hillary `s hometown. They are low on fuel, so Bill pulls into a gas station for a fill-up. The attendant comes out and begins to pump gas into the first couple's tank. As he is doing this, he looks into the passenger window.

"Hey, Hillary. We used to date in high school, do you remember me?" he asks. They chat for a few minutes, Bill pays and the first couple leaves.

As they drive Bill is feeling very proud of himself and looks over at Hillary. "You used to date that guy? Just think what it would be like if you had married him," he says smugly.

Hillary looks at Bill and shrugs. The she replies, "Well I guess you'd be pumping gas and he would be the President."

Mildred was a 93 year-old woman who was particularly despondent over the recent death of her husband Earl. She decided that she would just kill herself and join him in death. Thinking that it would be best to get it over with quickly, she took out Earl's old Army pistol and made the decision to shoot herself in the heart since it was so badly broken in the first place.

Not wanting to miss the vital organ and become a vegetable and burden to someone, she called her doctor's office to inquire as to just exactly where the heart would be. "On a woman," the doctor said, "your heart would be just below your left breast."

Later that night, Mildred was admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound to her left knee.

Good morning everyboomie. welcome

I think I'll have my coffee and reflect on what this day might have in store for me.

I told my Dr the other day that I'm sure I'll be pushing up daisies soon. She asked why I thought so, and I told her that every day when I wake up something else hurts. It's as if I'm getting older or something.

I told my sister if we lose our jobs I can use the arrowheads I've found to hunt food with, but she didn't get the point.

She said, "You can throw them THAT hard??" rolleyes

When I was going to sleep last night I was trying to put everything out of my mind, but a thought occurred to me.

Today is be kind to a witch day, so I gave my sister a new heater.

I saw this guy out of my window and I asked him if he could perform Singing In the Rain for me.

I said it might make you feel better.

It worked for Gene Kelly.

Have a happy day everyone.

Remember when life gives you tomatos make tomato juice.

Good morning everyone. Joe, I'm with Ana no pushing up daisies. Ana, hubby is doing good, except for the heat bothering him. We're back to walking, but have to cut it shorter. My knee still doesn't like to much exercise. It swells and hurts when I overdo, but I can't handle doing nothing. To all here and all who follow, have a Great Saturday. We are going to the Farmer's Market and lunch at the German resturant today. Danish, Cinnamon Buns and Banana Nut Pancakes in the NC. summer

Well, it is a good morning. 55 degrees when we got up. Nice. Took Cory for his walk then got busy and got all my vacuuming done. Yippee. Bill is after me to dust downstairs. He creates it, but what can I say.

Aw Ana, hope you feel better soonest. We are going over to friends for dinner. Don't know if we will get together with Susie and Vince. Depends on how she is doing.

Dishwasher is running and there is another load waiting. Kitchen has been cleaned a couple of times. People have been fed and dogs have been fed! Keoki has been out several times.
