Sara was driving home from work when she noticed a Policeman following her.
"Pull over!" the cop announced.
Sara pulled over and rolled down the window as the officer approached her.
"You were exceeding the speed limit, Ma'am," the police officer said. "You are also not wearing your seat belt. I'm going to have to write you a ticket." He then wrote her $25.00 ticket.
Back home, Sara was wondering how she was going to explain this to her husband who would no doubt notice the fee in their checkbook. Suddenly she had a bright idea.
Opening the checkbook register, she made the following entry: One Pullover, $25.00.

"All right," Rita sighed.
Immediately, Julie whispered, "So listen carefully the first time!"

A physical instructor was giving practical demonstrations of various physical positions. He stood on his head and blood ran to his head making his face turn red. Later he asked: “When I turned upside down, blood ran to my face. Now tell me, why the same thing does not happen when I am on my feet?”

Little Tommy was sitting on the toilet pot. His mother thought he was taking too long, so she went into the bathroom to check on him. Tommy was there sitting on the toilet seat reading a book. But every few seconds, he would put the book down, grab the toilet seat with one hand, and hit himself on top of the head with the other hand.
His mother found this strange and asked: "Tommy, are you okay? You've been in here for a while."
Little Tommy replied, "I'm fine, mom, I just haven't done my potty yet."
His mother said, "That's all right, sweety, you can stay here for some more time, but why do you keep hitting yourself on the head?"
Little Tommy replied: "Works for ketchup."
A village was facing a problem of speeding cars resulting in accidents every now and then.
The local council could not afford a speed camera, so they put up a sign saying:
Slow down Old People's Home. It had no effect.
At the next meeting, it was decided to work on the paternal instincts and put up a sign:
Danger - Children at Play.
No discernible reduction in traffic speed.
Then the chairman had a brain-wave and suggested they try a sign with:
Clothing optional Colony.
As a result of the notice, white vans and lorries crawl throughout the village now.

Good morning everyboomie.
As Monday's go, mine was pretty good, and I guess I'm ready for another Tuesday.
It was very overcast when I got up. It was a nice cool morning. I'm still working on my flower beds, and I went outside to do some more work on it. It had these retainer blocks bordering it before, and instead of laying them down flat like they were, I decided to stand them on edge. It looks a lot better. I had to dig up three bushes first, that I didn't like where they put them. Someone didn't put a lot of forethought into where they planted the trees and bushes out there.
I had finished one side of the porch, and put down a barrier and brown mulch, and today I started trenching the other side of the porch for those blocks. I got about half of it dug out when it started to rain. It continued raining lightly for a couple of hours, so I went inside and ate lunch, and got a two hour nap as well.
When I got up, I decided to work on something else for a while. I had worn out the wire cloth on my sifter while head hunting, and I had bought a new roll of it, so I took off the old wire cloth, and replaced it with new wire cloth, and then I cut some more 2x4s and built another sifter, so I now have two sifters.
My buddy Shane may be coming down here in early May to headhunt with me, and we may need two sifters.
After I finished that, I went back to working on the flower bed until I got all the blocks in place. Now I have to put the barrier down, and then mulch.
Then I have to do the other side, (outside the fence).
That was my Monday in a coconut shell.
Have a very happy Tuesday everyone.
