One year Raymond didn’t know what to buy his mother-in-law for her birthday, so he purchased her a nice plot in the nearby cemetery. The next year, as they were leaving for her birthday party, Raymond’s wife noticed that he had no gift in his hands. She snapped at him, “Why didn’t you buy her something?”
“Well, she hasn’t used the gift I gave her last year,” he replied.
What cigarette was once advertised with the slogan, “More doctors smoke [this brand] than any other cigarette”?


For dedicated collectors, anything associated with the 1965–68 cult sci-fi series Lost in Space commands out-of-this-world prices, but nothing more than a three-foot-tall model of the Jupiter 2 space pod that helped the Robinsons return to Earth. It was destined for the junkyard after the show’s cancellation, but someone saved the wood, steel, and aluminum prop … and sold it at auction in June 2010 for $85,000. (Penny Robinson’s space suit, worn by actress Angela Cartwright in the first season, was a relative bargain at $20,000.)
Actor Tony Dow (Wally on Leave It to Beaver) became a sculptor. He has a piece in the Louvre.

    T.G.I.F.! Enjoy the weekend Judy! I hope to get some rest when I can. I'm going to my son's to visit with his fiancé's family. I've met them but my husband, Ron has not met them. We're wedding planning as their getting married next June 21. I need to get to feeling better so I can work on losing some more weight before I get a new dress. I've gained due to all this back and leg pain I'm having. Enjoy your day Judy! emoticon emoticon
