    Good thing they have a lock on that thing so you can't take all of them in two seconds!

Help with a joke, please, chapter 2

Thursday, August 14, 2014

My friend Terracottage posted a one-liner, something like "if your plums dry out on the tree, it's time to prune." I posted one back about grapes and raisins, but the groaner I really want ends with something about wine and whine. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, and I will post the winning entry - with or without attribution, as you request.

    Q: What happens when you sit on a grape?
A: It gives a little wine! emoticon emoticon

  I whined when I couldn't find a bottle of wine? The wine was gone when he started to whine? Gosh.. this isn't easy lol.

Don't panic: July 20, 2014

Sunday, July 20, 2014

Heard on the radio: intelligence agencies are turning back to typewriters for secure communication.

Okay, maybe panic. Intelligence agencies are developing technologies for reading the typewriter ribbons. Or listening devices that can tell what's being typed by the sound of the keys striking the platen. What does applying white-out sound like?

    My Dad had a secretary who used so much whiteout that he said it looked like there had been a snowstorm over her desk at the end of each day. One time she wrote up a report- they threw 20 pounds of s**t in the furnace. (Supposed to be shot)

    Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!!!! Maybe they should write things in long-hand with invisible ink. Oh, but I can buy a lemon to use to read the invisible ink! Yikes! emoticon

Beauty Natural and Human, chapter 2

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Another high-speed moment of grace. I was driving (at the speed limit) on a four-year divided highway in Maryland, when I saw a cable-company van pulled over onto the median. Then I saw the snapping turtle in the middle of the fast lane. As I drove past in the slow lane, the cable guy picked up the turtle with good form, namely: with heavily gloved hands at the back of the turtle' s shell. In the rear view mirror, I watched the cable guy carry the turtle the rest of the way across the road. The cable company has a reputation for bad service, but they hire Good People.

    That is awesome! We have rescued turtles before, too. I have heard of people hitting them on purpose, and I just don't get that.

    I did the same thing for a snapping turtle many years ago... but not on such a busy highway. It was large, with a smelly, moss laden back. It makes you feel great, knowing you've helped Nature carry-on. High-Five to the Cable Guy. emoticon emoticon
