A husband and wife were grocery shopping. He picks up a case of beer and puts it in the cart. “What are you doing?” asks the wife. “They’re on sale, only $10 for 24 cans” he replies. “Put them back. We can’t afford them,” demands the wife. They continue shopping. Later on, she puts a $20 jar of face bream in the basket. “What are you doing?” asks the husband. “It’s my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,” replies the wife. He said, “So does 24 can of beer and it’s half the price!”

*****An elderly man, thinking his wife was losing her hearing, went about 20 feet behind her and asked, “Can you hear me, sweetheart?” No reply. He moved in to about 10 feet and inquired again. No reply. Five feet, and not a word. A few inches behind her ear, he asked, “Can you hear me now, honey?” His wife said, “For the fourth time, yes.”

*****Iowa DNR has requested that all ice fishing houses be removed from the Iowa lakes by July 3rd so as to not interfere with the July 4th fireworks.
