Bad Habit

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Most of us have a bad habit we are constantly trying to break. For me, it's biting my fingernails. One day I told my husband about my latest solution: press-on nails.

"Great Idea, Honey," he smiled. "You can eat them straight out of the box."

    Had this habit as a 3 yr old. My grandfather who had lost his left arm in a mining accident never wore his artifical arm. One day I saw it hanging in hall closet. After I stopped screaming DM explained what it was. Being a typical 3 yr old I had many questions including how did he lose his arm. Mom said he chewed his nails and it just fell off. Have not chewed a nail since.

Sunday...

Monday, July 23, 2012

Missed sending you all a joke yesterday! Don't even remember if I spinned the wheel. Went on a Jet boat cruise up the Willamette [will a' met] and Columbia Rivers, and through the locks at the Bonneville Dam. A native Oregonian and this is the first time I've got to do that. Pretty impressive. Have been down the Columbia to Astoria just last May. Love the water!

A photo of beacon rock on the Washington side. The area behind the rock used to belong to my grandfather and his four brothers. It was homesteaded by a cousin of Patrick Henry's...some time ago, you know! They sold it in the '50s to the National Forest. I have lots of roots here in the Northwest!

    I, too, live in Oregon and have thoroughly enjoyed the various waters.

    Lucky you!!! I've lived here in Oregon most of my 74 years (around Eugene) and that's something I've never done and have always thought I'd like to do it... I've driven up through the gorge many times - well, as far as Hood River usually and love it, it's so beautiful up there - when the weather is good. Am going up that way again in October, if not before, to the Harvest Fest in HR... That's always fun!

    I'm glad you had a really good day. We have been past the dam (and over it) several times, but never went through the locks. You have had a memorable experience.

Ol' Fred

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Ol' Fred had been a faithful Christian and was in the hospital, near death. The family called their preacher to stand with them. As the preacher stood next to the bed, Ol' Fred's condition appeared to deteriorate and he motioned frantically for something to write on. The pastor lovingly handed him a pen and a piece of paper, and Ol' Fred used his last bit of energy to scribble a note, then suddenly died. The preacher thought it best not to look at the note at that time, so he placed it in his jacket pocket.

At the funeral, as he was finishing the message, he realized that he was wearing the same jacket that he was wearing when Ol' Fred died. He said, "You know, Ol' Fred handed me a note just before he died. I haven't looked at it, but knowing Fred, I'm sure there's a word of inspiration there for us all."

He opened the note, and read, "Please step to your left -- you're standing on my oxygen tube!"

Meat Market

Saturday, July 21, 2012

A cannibal entered the meat market to buy something nice for dinner. The owner greeted him and told him to look around. The cannibal began to inspect the meat case and noticed the market specialized in brain.

Upon further inspection he noticed a marked disparity between the costs of brain meats. A carpenter's brain sells for $1.50 per pound. A plumber's brain sells for $2.25 per pound. He noticed with alarm that a politician's brain sells for $375.00 a pound. With not a little curiosity he asked the owner why the huge difference in price between the similar meats.

The owner responded with a deadpan look on his face, "Do you realize how many politicians it takes to get a pound of brains?"

Mass Hysteria

Saturday, July 21, 2012

A professor of clinical psychology at Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand, included a lecture on crowd psychology in his annual course. To illustrate mass hysteria, he regularly showed TV news footage of teenage crowds greeting the Beatles at the local airport in the 1960's.

One year, when he ran the footage, he heard squeals and bursts of laughter from his students. When the film ended he asked what had caused the hilarity.

Replied one student, "We recognized some of our mothers!"
