I know that I always make a weekly joke, but on a more serious note...
I would like everyone to say a prayer for me and wish me luck today. I have to go talk to the bank today, and if all goes well, we are talking thousands of dollars here. I cannot wait to be free of debt. I am so excited I can barely get my ski mask over my head!

I used to get freaked out too when I was alive.* - I*ve never seen anyone run so fast!

~~*Do you believe in life after death?* my boss asked one of his employees. *Yes, sir,* the clerk replied. *That*s good,* said the boss. *After you left early yesterday to go to your grandma*s funeral, she stopped in to see you.*
~~I went for a run, but I came back home after 2 minutes because I forgot something. I forgot that I*m fat and can*t run for more than 2 minutes.

So, I*m sitting in a bar and two very large women with accents are sitting across from me. I say, *Cool accents, are you two ladies from Scotland?* One of them yells, *Its Wales, you idiot.* So I said, *OK, are you two Whales from Scotland?*
I don*t remember much after that.

Today we had the good, the bad, & the ugly. Market reflected quality today and was up and down. We want to put all the flooding in the rearview mirror, and all roads in our area are open again! We look forward to having larger sales with more and better hay starting next week.

I was going to bed the other night when I noticed some people in my shed stealing things. I called the police but was told no one was in the area to help. They said they would be over as soon as possible. I hung up.  A minute later I called again. *Hello,* I said, *I called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed. You don*t have to hurry now because I*ve shot them. They aren*t going anywhere.*
Within minutes there were half a dozen police cars in the area plus helicopters and an armed response unit. They caught the burglars red-handed. One of the officers said: *I thought you said you shot them?* To which I replied: *I thought you said there were no available units in the area?*

Today was the first sale with much volume in the past month. We had good weather. Quality varied quite a bit. We had more of better grass and alfalfa, and the prices reflected that accordingly. We had a wide range of hay and price. We had several new loads of straw in today.

I*m gonna pretend I*ve gone mad!* He climbs up the rafters, hangs upside down and shouts  *I*m a lightbulb, I*m a lightbulb!* Murphy watches in amazement. The foreman shouts: *Paddy, go home.

Murphy starts packing is kit up to leave as well. *Where do you think you*re going?* asks the fore-man. *Well,  I can*t work in the friggin dark!* said Murphy.

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.

Today we had the good, the bad, & the ugly. Market reflected quality today and was up and down. We want to put all the flooding in the rearview mirror, and all roads in our area are open again! We look forward to having larger sales with more and better hay starting next week.

I was going to bed the other night when I noticed some people in my shed stealing things. I called the police but was told no one was in the area to help. They said they would be over as soon as possible. I hung up.  A minute later I called again. *Hello,* I said, *I called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed. You don*t have to hurry now because I*ve shot them. They aren*t going anywhere.*
Within minutes there were half a dozen police cars in the area plus helicopters and an armed response unit. They caught the burglars red-handed. One of the officers said: *I thought you said you shot them?* To which I replied: *I thought you said there were no available units in the area?*

Today was the first sale with much volume in the past month. We had good weather. Quality varied quite a bit. We had more of better grass and alfalfa, and the prices reflected that accordingly. We had a wide range of hay and price. We had several new loads of straw in today.

I went to the liqour store Friday afternoon on my bicycle, bought a bottle of Scotch and but it in the bicycle basket. I was about to leave, then I thought to myself that if I fell off the bike, the bottle would break. So I drank all the Scotch before I cycled home, just in case. That turned out to be a very good decision because I fell off my bicycle seven times on the way home.

I went to the liqour store Friday afternoon on my bicycle, bought a bottle of Scotch and but it in the bicycle basket. I was about to leave, then I thought to myself that if I fell off the bike, the bottle would break. So I drank all the Scotch before I cycled home, just in case. That turned out to be a very good decision because I fell of my bicycle seven times on the way home.

*Why doesn*t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

* Who was Allen, and why did he have so many wrenches?

* Where exactly is the middle of nowhere?

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up and down the aisles. The sale girl sees him and asks if she can help. He says that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife. She directs him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later he brings a huge bag of cotton balls and a roll of string to the counter. The girl says *Sir, I thought you were looking for abox tampons for your wife.* He answered, *You see, it*s like this. Yesterday I sent my wife to the store to get me a carton of cigarettes. She returns some time later with a tin of tobacco and rolling papers because it is sooooo much cheaper. So I figure if I have to roll my own, so does she.*

* What if you stop to think and forget to start again?

* Why do we put suits in a garment bag, and garments in a suitcase?

*Why doesn*t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

* Who was Allen, and why did he have so many wrenches?

* Where exactly is the middle of nowhere?

* Where does your lap go when you stand up?

An old lady with a cane was walking past a young man singing *21 today, 21 today.* The young man says, *You*re not 21, you old bat.* She turns to him and with a mighty swing cracks him over the head with her cane and walks away singing *22 today, 22 today.*

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up and down the aisles. The sale girl sees him and asks if she can help. He says that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife. She directs him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later he brings a huge bag of cotton balls and a roll of string to the counter. The girl says *Sir, I thought you were looking for abox tampons for your wife.* He answered, *You see, it*s like this. Yesterday I sent my wife to the store to get me a carton of cigarettes. She returns some time later with a tin of tobacco and rolling papers because it is sooooo much cheaper. So I figure if I have to roll my own, so does she.*

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, *Fried Chicken.* She said I wasn*t funny, but she couldn*t have been right because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth, so I did. I told my dad what happened and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do too. Especially chicken, pork, and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal*s office. I told him what happened, and he laughed too and told me not to do it again. The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite LIVE animal was. I told her it was chicken because you can make it into fried chicken. She sent me back to the principal*s office. He laughed and told me not to do it again. My parents told me to be honest, but my teacher doesn*t like it when I am. I don*t understand. Today my teacher told me to tell her what famous military person I admire most. I said, *Colonel Sanders.*
Guess where I am now...

A man and wife are dining in a plush restaurant, and the husband keeps staring at a drunken lady swigging drinks at the bar. The wife asks her husband if he knows her? The husband replies: Yes, she's my ex-girlfriend. I hear she took to drinking right after we split 7 years ago, and hasn't been sober since.
The wife: Oh my! Who would think a person could go on celebrating for that long.

The California D.O.T found over 200 dead crows on the highways recently, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A pathologist examined the birds, and to everyone*s relief, it was not bird flu. The cause of death seemed to be from vehicular impact. However, during analysis, it was noted that various colors of paint on the claws and beaks of the crows. Testing of these paints found that 98% of the birds were killed by impact with motorbikes, while the other 2% were impacted by cars. The agency then hired an
Ornithological Behaviourist to determine why the percentage difference between motorcycles vs. cars. The conclusion was that when crows eat road-kill, they always have a lookout bird to warn of incoming danger. They discovered that while all the lookout birds could shout *Cah!* but not a single one could shout *Bike!*

~~As you get older, you have to stay positive. For example, the other day I fell down the stairs. Instead of getting upset, I just thought, *Wow, that*s the fastest I*ve moved in years!*
~~I sent that *ancestry* site some information on my family tree. They sent me back a packet of seed and suggested that I just start over.

Stuff I wonder about (Part 1):
*If money doesn*t grow on trees, why do banks have branches?
* Why does round pizza come in a square box?
* What exactly is cured ham cured of?
*Why is someone *IN a movie,* but *ON tv?*
*When someone says they slept like a baby, does that mean that they woke up every 2 hours?
* How can you tell if you run out of invisible ink?
