I put a roast in the oven one noon hour and set the
timer, a feature I hadn't used yet. Before leaving work
that afternoon, I phoned my 14-year-old son to ask
him to check the roast and peel some potatoes.
Minutes later he called back. "Mom, the roast isn't
cooked. The oven didn't come on." The roast was on
the menu again the following day, but this time, since
I stopped by the house after a business lunch, I decided to turn the oven on myself. Again before leaving
work, I called my son to check the roast and get the
potatoes started. Again he called me back. "The roast
still isn't cooked." "Listen," I said. "I know the oven's
on. I turned it on before I left. I didn't use the timer."
"Oh, the stove's working fine," he told me. "It's just
that the roast is still in the refrigerator."

Two boys were arguing when the teacher entered the
room. The teacher asked, "Why are you arguing?"
One boy answered, "We found a ten-dollar bill and
decided to give it to whoever tells the biggest lie."
"You should be ashamed of yourselves," said the teacher.
"When I was your age, I didn't even know what a lie
was." The boys gave the ten dollars to the teacher.
On a business trip to India, I arrived at the airport
in Delhi and took a taxi to my hotel, where I was
greeted by my hospitable Indian host. The cab driver
requested the equivalent of eight dollars U.S. for the
fare. It seemed reasonable, so I started to hand him the
money. But my host grabbed the bills and initiated a
verbal assault upon the cabby, calling him a worthless
parasite and a disgrace to their country for trying to
overcharge visitors. My host threw half the amount at
the driver and told him never to return. As the taxi
sped off, my host gave me the remaining bills and
asked, "How was your trip?" "Fine ... until you chased
the cab away with my luggage in the trunk."
Taking my car to the mechanic, I was fearful that any
needed repair might be too expensive. I was relieved
when he told me all I needed was blinker fluid.

Waiting For A Wheel Chair EJF
The Mechanic And The Doctor EJF
Walking into a hospital room, a nurse finds an
elderly gentleman dressed and sitting on the bed with
a suitcase at his feet. He insists to her that he doesn't
need help leaving the hospital, but the nurse explains
that hospital regulations require a wheel chair for
patients being discharged. Reluctantly, he lets her
wheel him to the elevator and down to the lobby. On
the way to the front door, the nurse asks the man if his
wife is meeting him there. "I don't know," he replies.
"She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of
her hospital gown."
Variables won't; constants aren't.
A mechanic, was removing a cylinder head when he
spotted a heart surgeon in his garage. The heart surgeon
was waiting for the service manager to take a look at his
bike. Allan shouted across the garage, 'Hey Doc can I
ask you a question?' The surgeon, a bit surprised,
walked over to Allan. Allan straightened up, wiped his
hands on a rag and asked, 'So Doc, look at this engine. I
also can open hearts, take valves out, fix'em, put in new
parts and when I finish this will work just like a new
one. So how come I work for a pittance and you get the
really big money, when you and I are doing basically the
same work?' The surgeon smiled and whispered in the
mechanic’s ear, 'Try doing it with the engine running.'

Mabel & Ethel
Two elderly women were eating breakfast in a restaurant one morning. Ethel noticed something funny about
Mabel's ear and she said, "Mabel, did you know you've
got a suppository in your left ear?"
"I have? a suppository?" She pulled it out & stared at it.
Then she said, "Ethel, I'm glad you saw this thing. Now
I think I now know where my hearing aid is."
Friends for Decades
Two elderly ladies had been friends for many
decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of
activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had
been limited to meeting a few times a week to play
cards. One day they were playing cards when one
looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at
me.....I know we've been friends for a long time but I
just can't think of your name! I've thought and
thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what
your name is. Her friend glared at her. For at least
three minutes she just stared and glared at her.
Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know?

says, "I'm not sure, I'll go check," and went back to
the truck to ask his brothers. He returns some time
later and says, "Yup, I meant two-by-fours." "Ok, Now
how long do you need them?" Again Bubba pauses for
a minute, and says, "I'm not sure, I better go check

Grandma Jones had never experienced a sick day

of the "mulligrubs" sent her to the hospital for observation. By the time a pair of husky interns got
Grandma tucked into bed, she had managed to complain about everything: the temperature, the lights, the
skimpy gown, the food and the mattress, especially,
the mattress. Suddenly, Grandma spotted a small plastic item with a button, attached to a cord. "What's
that?" she demanded. "If you need anything in the
middle of the night, Grandma," said one of the interns,
"just press that button." "What does it do, ring a bell?"
she asked. "No, it turns on a light in the hall for the
nurse on duty," the intern replied. "A light in the hall?"
responded Grandma. "Look, I'm the sick one around
here. If the night nurse needs a light on in the hall, she
can get up and switch it on herself."

Hospital Stay EJF
A man goes to visit his 85-year-old grandpa in hospital. " How are you grandpa? he asks. "Feeling fine,"
says the old man. "What's the food like?" "Terrific, wonderful menus." "And the nursing?" "Just couldn't be better. These young nurses really take care of you."
"What about sleeping? Do you sleep OK?" "No problem, nine hours solid every night. At 10 o'clock they
bring me a cup of hot chocolate and a Viagra tablet ...
and that's it. I go out like a light." The grandson is puzzled and a little alarmed by this, so rushes off to question the Sister in charge. "What are you people doing,"
he says, " I'm told you're giving an 85-year-old Viagra
on a daily basis. Surely that can't be true?" "Oh, yes,"
replies the Sister. "Every night at 10 o'clock we give him
a cup of hot chocolate and a Viagra tablet. It works wonderfully well. The chocolate makes him sleep, and the
Viagra stops him from rolling out of bed

let the mercury out of his thermometers and painted
them all to read 106 degrees." The third nurse said,
"Well, I did worse than that. I poked holes in all of the

Need a Raise!
The basketball coach stormed into the university
president's office and demanded a raise right then and
there. "Please," protested the college president, "you
already make more than the entire History department." "Yeah, maybe so, but you don't know what I
have to put up with," the coach blustered. "Look." He
went out into the hall and grabbed a jock who was
jogging down the hallway. "Run over to my office and
see if I'm there," he ordered. Twenty minutes later the
jock returned, sweaty and out of breath. "You're not
there, sir," he reported. "See what I mean?" the coach
said, scratching his head. "He could have phoned!"
One caller to our answering service gave me his
name, number and message and then said, "You know
my name. What's yours?" "4136," I replied, since we
were allowed only to give our operator numbers.
Sounding disappointed, he said, "May I call you by
your first digit, or would that be too personal?"
Pay Attention And Wise Up #8 WM
If your government believes that the best way to
eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more ...you might live in a country founded by
geniuses but run by idiots.
What do you get when you cross a pit bull with a collie?
A dog that runs for help...after it bites your leg off.

There was a traveling salesman whose car became
hopelessly stuck in a snow bank during a recent blizzard
in North Dakota. It took him several hours to make it to
the nearest farm house, but frozen half to death, he finally
reached the front door and knocked on it. A grizzled old
farmer answered and the salesman pleaded for a place to
spend the night. 'Why sure, young fella, I can give ya a
place to bunk,' said the hospitable old man. 'But, I ain't
got no daughter like ya always hear about in them thar
jokes.' 'Oh!' said the salesman. Then thinking a moment
or two said, 'Just how far is it to the next farm?'
Harrowing Experience LP
This morning on Circle Drive, I looked over to my
left and there was a woman In a brand new Cadillac
doing 65 mph with her face up next to her rear view
mirror putting on her eyeliner. I looked away For a
couple seconds...to continue shaving and when I
looked back she was halfway over in my lane! ...still
working on that makeup. As a man, I don't scare easily. But she scared me so much; I dropped my electric
shaver which knocked the donut out of my other
hand. In all the confusion of trying to straighten out
the car using my knees against the steering wheel, It
knocked my cell phone away from my ear which fell
into the coffee between my legs! Splashed, and burned
and ruined the damn phone, soaked my trousers and
disconnected an important call! Women Drivers!

The Constitution is the guide I
will never abandon.
The Constitution? Hey, it’s just a piece of paper.
2008 TO THE PRESENT........
The United States of America enduring the
ERA OF EMBARRASSMENT
I can’t stand the Democrats and I have no use for
the Republicans. Just about all of them are self
ordained demigods above reproach. I can honestly say
that I can’t sense an honorable person among them.
Maybe there are a few, but they are trivialized by
those of the power class who care more about themselves and less about the present and future of our
beloved country. Look at the the sacrifice and courage
of our founding fathers then and at the shenanigans of
Barry and the Bolsheviks now. But,....who cares? I do.
