Last Sat. a.m. Dick got up early, quietly dressed, made his lunch & slipped into the garage.  He hooked up his pickup & boat & proceeded to back out into a torrential down-pour. Wind was blowing 50 mph, so he pulled everything back into the garage, turned on the radio & discovered the weather would be bad all day.   So he went back into the house, quietly undressed & slipped back into bed.  He cuddled up to his wife*s back expectantly, & whispered, *The weather out there is terrible.*  His loving wife  of 5 years replied, *And can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?*  That*s when the fight started.

After a basketball game, the coach found a cell phone on the gym floor.  He picked it up and handed it to one of the referees, saying, "Here's your phone."
"What makes you think it's mine?" the ref asked.
"Easy," the coach replied.  "It says you  missed 13 calls."

Happy New Year everyone!
