I WAS AT CLEAR BLUE RETREAT YESTERDAY, AND YOU SHOULD SEE THE BEAUTIFUL HOT TUBS THAT THEY HAVE….HONEY, IF YOU’RE LISTENING, THAT’S WHAT I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS…YOU, TOO CAN SEE THEM AT CLEAR BLUE RETREAT, SOUTH MAIN IN ABERDEEN, IN THE OLD DEPOT BUILDING.

1.  our tiny, slight, 20 percent chance of snow yesterday sure made the roads slippery during the afternoon….have you ever noticed that when we have a 80-90 percent chance of precipitation we sometimes don’t get any, but if we have a 10-20 percent chance we usually get some….weird….

2.  new york giants football star plaxico burress is suspended for the rest of the season, and has probably played his last game as a new york giant….plaxico was stupid enough to carry a loaded gun into a nightclub in new york city the other day…then the gun went off and he shot himself in the leg…..another stupid move?  he had the loaded gun in A PAIR OF SWEATPANTS…i won’t even put my keys or wallet in sweatpants…..you’re almost guaranteed of losing stuff when you do that….

3.  many people i know are taking on a part time job due to the economy….i am also looking for something part time, so if you want to pay me a bundle of money for not doing much work, call me… ha ha

4.  speaking of work, did you know that people in the upper midwest were chosen as the hardest working people in the country?  yep, it’s true….my friends in nashville always told me that when they were hiring, they always looked in the upper midwest first….a nashville record company executive told me once that southern people put in 5 actual hours of work in an eight hour day, while northerners work about 10 hours in an eight hour period…ha ha

5.  i like having a four day weekend, like last weekend…it gives me a chance to stay up past ten o’clock…and i LOVE watching conan o’brien’s late night show…i think he’s the funniest of anybody in the late show circuit…….i know many people who disagree, but this is just one man’s opinion…..my favorite part of his show is ‘TRIUMPH THE INSULT COMIC DOG.”  we have a dvd of the dog and it is side splitting funny….

6.  one thing i love about winter time is playing more board games with friends and with the boys…there’s nothing like a lazy afternoon with popcorn and pop and a board game like yahtzee, monopoly, or apples to apples….

7.  john kerry is reportedly upset that barrack o’bama didn’t name him to a cabinet position….do we have a “secretary of boredom?”

8.  stupid.com has listed it’s annual 10 stupidest christmas presents…want to hear my favorite?  it’s a pole dancer alarm clock that wakes you up by having a plastic blonde stripper gyrate on a pole…no kidding…..NOW I KNOW WHAT I’M GETTING SCOTT SOLBERG FOR CHRISTMAS….

9.  a new survey reveals that the british are the most promiscuous in the western world….the united states ranks 6th…however, we’re moving up quickly since we got madonna back…

10.  controversial political pundit ann colter fell down some stairs the other day.  it was so bad that doctors had to wire her jaw shut…which was odd, because she injured her leg….

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY….

The ceremony was over. The deceased husband was buried, and the widow stood
beside the grave with her best friend.  As of that moment, she confided, she had
no money left.
     “How can that be?” said her friend. “You told me you got $40,000 from an
insurance policy. How can you be broke already?”
     The widow answered, “Well, the funeral home cost me $5,000. The rest went
for memorial stone.”
     “You spent $35,000 for a memorial stone?. Good grief, how big is it?”
     The widow extended her hand. “Three and a half carats.”

OR ONE OF MY FAVORITE JOKES….


    A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a
fly swatter.
   “What are you doing?” She asked.
    “Hunting flies” he responded.
    “Oh, killing any?” she asked.
    “Yep, 3 males 2 females,” he replied.
    Intrigued, she asked: “How can you tell?”
    He responded, “3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone.”

that’s all for now…enjoy your wednesday…

THE WEATHER IS COLDER, BUT YOU CAN BE WARMER AND MORE RELAXED WITH A NEW HOT TUB FROM CLEAR BLUE RETREAT, SOUTH MAIN IN ABERDEEN…THEY ARE LOCATED IN THE OLD DEPOT BUILDING…STOP BY AND TALK WITH THEM TODAY….AND THANK THEM FOR SPONSORING THE DAILY BLOG….

1.  well, my son mitchell’s “reign of terror” is over….i beat him, NOT ONCE BUT TWICE, this weekend in nfl tour on x-box 360…i actually felt kind of sorry for him……and i beat tyler this weekend, too…..man, must have been my lucky weekend…the boys are incredibly good at x-box 360, so they’re nothing to mess with…i am fortunate to have won a couple of games….

2.  speaking of mitchell….we were walking into the theater the other day and a friend of ours was walking out, saying that she walked out of a movie because it was horrible…..my son mitchell told us that he couldn’t believe someone would walk out of a movie….well, lo and behold, later that night, mitchell and his friend walked out of ‘transporter 3’….talk about ironic, huh?  mitch said the movie was horrible and they couldn’t sit there any longer…ha ha

3.  i love getting suprises, and this past friday morning i recieved a good one…my cousin, jodi, who lives in new york city called me up and talked with me for almost an hour….i love jodi, and i miss her…..when i was in new york city a few years back, jodi and a friend took me around on a tour….i have never ever ever wanted to go to new york city, but now that i’ve been there, i cannot wait to go back……

4.  many of you know that i like to play with my “magic eight ball” on the air with you, the listeners…..well, i was dismayed this weekend while shopping to see my magic eight ball in stores with hannah montana crap all over it….all they did was take the original magic eight ball and put hannah montana’s name on it….that’s some pretty shoddy marketing if you ask me….

5.  i was playing scott solberg in our radio station fantasy football league this weekend, and i was behind by 19 points going into last nights game between houston and jacksonville…i went to bed last night, knowing pretty well that scott was going to beat me.  my player playing last night was running back steve slayton of the houston texans…so, i wake up this morning about 3:30, walk to my computer and see that slayton scored two touchdowns and had 130 yards rushing with means THIRTY POINTS FOR HIM, AND A WIN FOR ME….yeah……i’m in first place in my division…too bad that couldn’t transfer to my horrible crappy football picks on the radio….

6.  my son tyler loves to make hamburger helper…..so last night when jeannie was late, he thawed out the hamburger and made it again…he does a good job with it….after supper, mitchell told me that he’s going to put together a list of items that he needs at the store and he’s going to make supper soon…mitchell makes incredibly good scrambled eggs….

7.  well, the christmas season has begun…..by the way, what makes santa’s toy shop at the north pole unique?  he’s the only manufacturing plant that is not asking for a BAILOUT….

8.  nationwide research shows that 64 percent of high school students have cheated on a test….the teachers were so upset with the results that they broke up with them……wow…

9.  janet jackson and her fiance are reportedly trying to have a baby…her brother, michael, has already volunteered to babysit….

10. JOKE OF THE DAY:

A fellow stopped at a gas station and after filling his tank. He paid the
bill and bought a soft drink. He stood by his car drinking his cola and watched
two men working along the roadside.
     One man would dig a hole 2 or 3 feet deep and then move on.  The other man
came along behind him and filled in the hole. While one was digging a new hole
the other was about 25 feet behind filling in the old.
     “Hold it” he said to the men. “Can you tell me what’s going on here with
the digging?”
     “Well, we’re union and we work for the state” one of the men stated.
     “But one of you digs a hole and the other fills it up. You’re not
accomplishing anything. Aren’t you wasting the state’s money?”
     “You don’t understand, mister” one of the workers said, leaning on his
shovel and wiping his brow. “Normally, there’s three of us … me, Bubba and
Earl. I dig the hole, Bubba sticks in the tree, and Earl here puts the dirt back
in the hole. Just ’cause Bubba’s sick, that don’t mean that Earl and me
shouldn’t work!”

I’LL HAVE ANOTHER BLOG TOMORROW MORNING…..THANKS FOR LISTENING, AND HAVE A GREAT TUESDAY…

DID YOU PICK UP YOUR NEW HOT TUB DURING THE TWO BUSIEST DAYS OF SHOPPING? IF NOT, STOP BY CLEAR BLUE RETREAT ON SOUTH MAIN TODAY AND CHECK OUT THEIR FANTASTIC SELECTION OF BEAUTIFUL HOT TUBS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL MORE RELAXED JUST LOOKING AT THEM….

1.  well, here we are, back at work after a long thanksgiving weekend…hard to believe it’s the first day of december, and that christmas is just 25 days away…where did this year go?

2.  I’M SO PROUD OF MYSELF…i did not overeat on thanksgiving….actually, i took one small plate of food for dinner, and didn’t eat anything for supper……did have a sandwich and popcorn about 10 thanksgiving night which probably wasn’t very good for me…

3.  my wife jeannie always does wonderful things for me and the boys, and she fullfills our lives…..and this past friday night she made her boys really really happy…jeannie made KUMLA friday night for us, and we love love loved it…..in case you don’t know what kumla is, it’s a norwegian dish that is basically potatoes mixed with flour and put into balls….then they are boiled in ham water, smashed down on your plate with a bunch of butter and salt put on top.  and truthfully, they’re just as good if not better the next day when you fry up the remaining kumla for dinner.  we usually have kumla christmas eve, too, so how lucky are we to have it twice in a month!!!!

4.  we saw the movie “four christmases” this weekend.  this movie stars reese witherspoon and vince vaughn.  i really liked it, and jeannie and mitch thought it was okay…..jeannie and her female friends went to see ‘twilight’ yesterday again, and i think my boys went to see ‘role models’ for the second and third time…it’s a super funny movie….

5.  well, holiday decorating didn’t go so well on friday…my wife jeannie, gets so excited for decorating and most years, her husband and boys ruin her mood by being grinches…..on friday, us boys had a horrible time putting lights on the great big evergreen in our front yard…we’d also like to apologize to anyone in our neighborhood who heard the words coming out of our mouths at very loud ranges…….thanks to jeannie, our christmas tree in the house looks incredible……she is so talented at decorating…by the way, as of this morning, the lights are still not up on the evergreen….

6.  wow, the vikings lit up chicago last night in sunday night football…the vikings looked great..my hapless redskins, however, did not look good in a loss to the new york giants….but, i give all the respect in the world to the giants…they are a very very good football team….and if my skins can’t go to the super bowl, i hope the giants play the titans, that would be a very good game.

7.  we had a fun time out early friday morning shopping on the busiest shopping day of the year…..for the most part, people behaved, but i did see some tense people in a couple of stores…relax people..it’s only shopping……by the way, did you hear that a walmart employee in new york was trampled to death by shoppers?  that’s pathetic…..i hope the savings were worth it to whomever did that….

8.  rosie o’donnell’s live variety show was so horrible that they are not even letting her do a second show….there is a god……

9.  phillip fulmer coached his last game for the tennessee volunteers football team on saturday night….as you may or may not know, the vols are my college team, and i couldn’t be more mad about his dismissal….fulmer coached for 16 years, went to bowl games 15 out of 16 years, won one national championship and won the southeast conference seven times…then he has one bad year and BOOM he’s gone….that’s crappy…and the vols are set to hire oakland raider reject lane kiffin as their coach today…i’m not too happy about that hire…..but only time will tell…

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY….

Jimmy receives a parrot as a gift. The parrot is fully grown, with a very
bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an expletive: those that
weren’t expletives were, to say the least, rude.
     Jimmy tried to change the bird’s attitude by constantly saying polite
words, playing soft music … anything he could think of. Nothing worked.
     He yelled at the bird, and the bird got worse. He shook the bird, and the
bird got madder and more rude. Finally in a moment of desperation, Jimmy put the
parrot in the freezer.
     For a few moments he heard the bird swearing, squawking, kicking and
screaming and then, suddenly, there was absolute quiet. Jimmy was frightened
that he might have actually hurt the bird, and quickly opened the freezer door.
     The parrot calmly stepped out onto Jimmy’s extended arm and said, “I’m
sorry that I have offended you with my language and my actions, and I ask for
your forgiveness. I will endeavor to correct my behavior.”
     Jimmy was astounded at the changes in the bird’s attitude and was about to
ask what had changed him, when the parrot continued, “May I ask what the chicken
did?”

it’s good to be back…enjoy your monday…

3.  i have a blast going into jones drug and verbally abusing the staff…ha ha……yesterday duncan told me that his giants were going to cream my skins this weekend, and he wondered if i dared show my face next week….i’ll be in, buddy…gloating about our win….ha ha..and a young lady that works there named jerrie has been a friend of mine since junior high, and she’s jeannie’s best friend from high school.

4.  we were watching a rerun of “celebrity rehab” last night and i couldn’t beleive what i heard…..music legend rod stewart’s own flesh and blood didn’t know who BUDDY HOLLY was…..they were going to watch crazyman gary busey’s amazing performance as buddy holly, and you should have seen the look busey gave him when he made that statement…by the way, gary busey looks like he’s one split second away from snapping and beating the crap out of people…he’s scary….

5.  i can’t decide if i want to see the new movie “australia” or not……jeannie and i are definetly going to see the new movie “four christmases”…looks pretty funny…

6.  a new zogby poll found that most americans believe that the internet is the most reliable source for news…..no kidding…the poll was an INTERNET POLL….

7.  a spokane, washington man robbed a gas station and then stepped outside and waited for police to arrest him…some people will do anything to get away from spending thanksgiving with the relatives….

8.  thanksgiving day is thursday…kids today apparently don’t know thier history very well…many kids think that the pilgrims ate dinner with the indians at their casino….

9.  a russian analyst is predicting the decline and break up of the united states….yeah right…that’s only going to happen if one of the states are dating yoko ono……

WHEN YOU BUY SOMETHING, DON’T YOU EXPECT LOCAL PEOPLE TO BE THERE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND PERFORM SERVICE?  WELL, THAT’S WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU BUY A HOT TUB FROM CLEAR BLUE RETREAT…THEY’VE BEEN HERE FOR YEARS, AND THEY’RE LOCALLY OWNED AND MANAGED…CHECK THEM OUT..SOUTH MAIN IN ABERDEEN….

1.  there are many things that give me complete peace in this world….one of them is what i did last night.  a couple of times a month, i go to oakes, north dakota to visit three of my church people who are at the good samaritan home in oakes.  i absolutely love being with those people….and they completely cherish the minutes they spend with visitors….i have two 94 year olds, and a 96 year old and for the most part they are all pretty sharp…..my wish is this…i hope that each and every one of you spends some time at our area nursing homes over the holidays visiting people….put yourself in their place….if you were a resident there, wouldn’t you want people to stop by and visit?

2.  fox news channel has announced that their popular duo of hannity and colmes is splitting up soon…alan colmes is leaving to pursue other deals……i’m completely suprised that they haven’t killed each other by now……

3.  i actually have a cajun country cd in my car cd player right now…i love a lot of music, but cajun country with the accordians, fiddles, and washboards is a kind of music that i could listen to all day long…here’s some trivia for you?  did you know that a few years ago, i played washboard in a cajun band in new orleans?  yepper, i did…we were on a bus trip with fran helwig and toucan tours, when i was brought up on stage to play the washboard with a cajun band….the band said i did awesome, because i could keep the beat because i was a drummer…..LOVE THAT MUSIC….

4.  i couldn’t believe my eyes when i drove down sixth avenue yesterday and saw that the godfather’s pizza building was gone…..i was sad to see it go…had lots of beautiful memories of the place…their italian sausage pizza was amongst the best….in college we’d go down there for a mini pizza and then play video games for an hour or two.  oh, yeah, then we’d go get an education….(sorry mom and dad)

5.  i was watching a bit of “celebrity rehab” with dr. drew last night with my wife jeannie…this jeff conaway guy who played on the movie ‘grease’ is a total trainwreck…..how this guy has not been comitted is beyond me……..

6.  i’m going on a diet after thanksgiving…i really need to lose 20-30 pounds and i’m going to do it…just watch…….

7.  a 13 year old florida student has been arrested for passing gas in the classroom…ARRESTED?  good golly…i would have been on death row……

8.  hows this for ironic?  a man in warsaw, poland just bought a home on ‘INTERNET STREET.’  but he’s going to sell the home right away, because he can’t get internet service on his computer on that street…you can’t make crap like that up, folks…..

9.  lindsay lohan and her flame, samantha ronson have apparently been fighting like cats and dogs….apparently the fighting is over one of them leaving the toilet seat up…….

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY…

One morning a husband returns to his lake cabin after several hours of
fishing and decides to take a nap.
Although not familiar with the lake, his wife decides to take the boat out.
She motors out a short distance, anchors, and reads her book, enjoying the peace
and quiet.
Along comes a game warden in his boat.  He pulls up alongside the woman and
says, “Good morning Ma’am. What are you doing?”
“Reading a book,” she replies, (thinking, “Isn’t that obvious?”)
“You’re in a restricted fishing area,” he informs her.
“I’m sorry officer, but I’m not fishing, I’m reading.”
“Yes, but you have all the equipment.  For all I know you could start at any
moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.”
“If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,” says the
woman.
“But I haven’t even touched you,” says the game warden.
“That’s true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start
at any moment.”
“Have a nice day ma’am”, and he left.

OKAY, HOW ‘BOUT THIS ONE …..

One afternoon, a wealthy lawyer was riding in the back of his limousine
when he saw two men eating grass by the road side.
He ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate. “Why are you
eating grass?” he asked one man.
“We don’t have any money for food,” the poor man replied.
“Oh, come along with me then,” instructed the lawyer.
“But, sir I have a wife and two children!”
“Bring them along!” replied the lawyer. He turned to the other man and
said, “Come with us.”
“But sir, I have a wife and six children!” the second man answered.
“Bring them as well!” answered the lawyer as he headed for his limo.
They all climbed into the limo, which was no easy task considering how many
passengers were now in the car.
Once underway, one of the poor fellows said, “Sir, you are too kind. Thank
you for taking all of us with you.”
The lawyer replied, “No problem. The grass at my house is almost a foot
tall.”

THAT’S ALL FOR NOW…HAPPY TUESDAY EVERYONE….

1.  we had our fall award night last night at the warner school…it was worth getting off the couch from football just to see coach randy hermansen in a vikings helmet with the long golden locks hanging down…he was so purty……

2.  it was movie weekend for the dean household this weekend…we went to see two movies…first of all, we saw “twilight” friday night on it’s opening night…it was me, jeannie, mitchell, and 200 screaming high school girls…ha ha…..it was a very very good movie that raked in over 70 million this weekend…good love story for you guys to take your wives to….then saturday afternoon we went to see “role models”…..this is the second time i saw the movie, and i think i liked it more the second time than i did the first time.  jeannie and mitchell loved it…it’s a very very funny movie….tyler took his girlfriend to it saturday night, and they loved it as well…..

3.  speaking of the movies, you’d better tell your kids this….amanda, the manager at carmike, told me friday night that she’s imposing a ‘zero tolerance’ policy towards cell phone and texting…if she sees a cell phone on during a movie, you’re out…it’s that simple, and it’s a policy i’ve been waiting to see implemented…..if you’re that important that you need your cell phone on for 90 minutes, then maybe you shouldn’t be at a movie in the first place…way to go amanda….

4.  we got our first taste of a christmas party already…billy from sportszone in the lakewood mall threw a party at his house saturday night and jeannie and i stopped over for food, fun, and friendship….billy’s quite a cook…his meatballs were to die for…..

5.  THANK YOU EVERYONE..we’re waiting for final totals, but it looks like the shoebox promotion at dr. darold opp’s office could top 500!!!!!!   wow, and he was thinking a hundred total…..by the way, my wonderful church, st. john’s in hecla donated 115 boxes to the cause…i’m so proud of them…….i’ll get official numbers later today and let you know in the morning…

6.  the new white house counsel for barrack o’bama is the same counsel that bill clinton had during his sex scandal…only this time, the guy will play close attention when barrack describes his position on interns……

7.  madonna was officially divorced on friday…that clicking sound you hear is wives padlocking thier husbands all over the world……

8.  on long island, new york, a dog knocked a running van into gear, damaging a local coffee house…when will fred learn to never leave the mystery machine running with scooby doo and shaggy inside…..

9.  a 13 year old boy in italy was taken to the hospital when he had an episode of illness and incoherence similar to a brain disorder while playing on his playstation too long…wow….that’s similar to grown men who play ‘guitar hero’ and suffer from the delusion that it makes them look cool….

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY….

An old lady was standing at the railing of the cruise ship holding her hat
on tightly so that it would not blow off in the wind.
     A gentleman approached her and said: “Pardon me, madam.  I do not intend to
be forward, but did you know that your dress is blowing up in this high wind?”
     “Yes, I know,” said the lady, “I need both hands to hold onto this hat.”
     “But, madam, you must know that your privates are exposed!” said the
gentleman in earnest.
     The woman looked down, then back up at the man and replied, “Sir, anything
you see down there is 85 years old.  I just bought this hat yesterday!”

THANKSGIVING JOKE …….

    A man in Jacksonville calls his son in San Diego the day before Thanksgiving
and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and
I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.”
    “Pop, what are you talking about?” the son screams.
     “We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the father says.
“We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your
sister in Denver and tell her.”
    Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like hell
they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this.”
    She calls Jacksonville immediately, and screams at her father, “You are NOT
getting divorced. Do not do a single thing until I get there. I am calling my
brother back, and we will both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing.
DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.
    The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. “Okay,” he says,
“they’re coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way.”

THAT’S ALL FOR NOW…HAPPY MONDAY…

i got to work this morning and it was FOUR DEGREES ABOVE ZERO WITH A WIND CHILL OF TEN BELOW….BRRR…..perfect hot tub weather…get yours today at clear blue retreat, south main in aberdeen, a locally owned, locally ran store…isn’t that a novel idea?

1.  it’s the final day for you to take shoeboxes to dr. darold opp’s office…we will have official numbers next week, but they are going to be wonderful!!!!!  my church in hecla will top the 100 mark by sunday…pretty impressive for a smaller church….

2.  rosie o’donnell has just bitten the hand that feeds her…(must be a pretty big, heavy hand)….rosie o’donnell is blasting barbara walters, saying that she’s full of herself and other stuff…barbara struck back yesterday on “the view” by telling rosie to “get on with her life.”  rosie o’donnell needs to just shut up and go away…..

3.  there’s been a rash of 30 and 40 something people dying in this region….that tears me apart…i’m 44…..makes you really think about life…my sincere condolensces to all who have lost someone at a tender young age…..i cannot imagine what you are going thru.

4.  i was up this morning eating scrambled eggs and sausage around 4:40 this morning…i turned on my tv and lo and behold “no country for old men” was on showtime…I LOVE THAT MOVIE..if you have never seen the movie, it’s a terrific movie, but kind of a crappy ending that makes you sit there and think for awhile…..

5.  last night was a very typical night at home…jay comes home late, jeannie’s cleaning, tyler’s watching tv with his girlfriend, and mitchell’s in his room playing guitar…..you can almost find that any night at the dean household…..(i really hope mitch gets in a band someday, he’s a pretty good, self taught guitar player)

6.  ceo’s from the auto industry are being criticized for FLYING on private jets to d.c. to beg congress for money for their companies….this is stupid?  WHAT DID THEY EXPECT THEM TO DO?  DRIVE?   oh wait…….

7.  THIS IS REALLY STUPID…forbes magazine has named tom cruise’s and katie holmes’ daughter suri as “hollywood’s hottest toddler.”  she’s the hottest thing in hollywood and she can’t even walk without falling down….hey, she’s the new lindsay lohan……

8.  UNBELIEVABLE!!!  undercover officers in new hanover county, north carolina are in hot water for TASERING a suspect while he was serving as a pallbearer, loading his father’s casket into the hearse……the sheriff said they should have done it the old fashioned way, and beat him senseless with a nightstick….and by the way, the suspect was described as “possibly armed and extremely mournful….”

9.  senator ted stevens of alaska has lost his senate race….but, even though he’s going to prison, expect him to run again…..from the inmates in the shower room….

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

An elderly citizen called 911 on her cell phone to report that her car has
been broken into. She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the
dispatcher.
     “They’ve stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even
the accelerator!” she cried.
     The dispatcher said, “Stay calm. An officer is on the way.”
     A few minutes later, the officer radios in.
     “Disregard,” he says. “She got in the back-seat by mistake.”

Two fellows from Mississippi were sitting around talking one afternoon. 
    After a while the first fellow says to the second, “If’n I was to sneak over
to your trailer Saturday and make love to your wife while you was off huntin’,
and she got pregnant and had a baby, would that make us kin?”
   The second fellow crooked his head sideways for a minute, scratched his head,
and squinted his eyes thinking real hard about the question.
   Finally, he says, “Well, I don’t know about that, but it sure would make us
even.”

OKAY, HOW ‘BOUT THIS ONE ……

     Two young boys were spending the night at their grandparents. At bedtime,
the two boys knelt beside their beds to say their prayers when the youngest one
began praying at the top of his lungs.
     “I PRAY FOR A BICYCLE… I PRAY FOR A NEW NINTENDO… I PRAY FOR A NEW
VCR…”
     His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and said, “Why
are you shouting your prayers? God isn’t deaf.”
      To which the little brother replied, “No, but Gramma is!”

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND EVERYONE….
