Comment The Post Below...


Greetings, 

We were practically in a drought last year...actually, we 
were in a drought last year here in Illinois. But this year 
it seems like it has been raining a couple days out of 
every week! I thought for sure we would have made up for 
last year's shortfall, but I just read a report that large 
portions of Illinois where all the corn and wheat is grown 
have experienced almost an inch below normal rainfall. 

What the heck!? My backyard looks like a tropical jungle and 
a hundred miles south of me the poor farmers are watching 
thousands of acres of crops drying up in 90 plus weather. 

I would rather not have to cut my grass twice a week and let 
them struggle with huge harvests. 

By the way...only one person out of the entire list emailed 
me with the answer to what book last week's riddle came from. 
It was, of course, 'The Hobbit' by J.R.R. Tolkien. The book 
that comes right before the Lord of the Rings trilogy. And 
I'm sure you're all familiar with that!

************** BIZARRE STORY OF THE WEEK *************** 

-------- Police Stand-Off Goes Off Without A Bang ----------

PORT ANGELES - It had all the makings of a successful police 
standoff - four officers and a sheriff's deputy armed with 
an assault rifle, a police bullhorn siren, and even a "throw 
phone" commonly used in crisis negotiations. There was just 
one problem - the person they were trying to contact wasn't 
in the house. Port Angeles police had a five-hour standoff 
with a reportedly suicidal woman with a knife before they 
learned that the house was empty. Police closed off the 
street in front of the house and tried to contact her by 
phone, then by using a throw phone, and finally a bullhorn 
siren. A robot device that was brought to the scene couldn't 
find the woman inside. The house was empty the whole time, 
said Port Angeles Police Cpl. Kevin Miller.

******************** WEEKLY JOKES ********************* 

LAFF A DAY: 

The Pharaoh was dictating, and his scribe was busily 
chipping away at the stone tablet. "I have plans . . . to 
form," the monarch said slowly, "a personal bodyguard . . . 
of stalwart . . .and virile . . . young men." 

The chips flew, but then suddenly ceased flying, and the 
perspiring chiseler looked up inquiringly, "Excuse me, your 
Majesty, but is virile spelled with one or two testicles?"

CLEAN LAFFS: 

A grandmother was pushing her little grandchild around Wal-
Mart in a buggy. Each time she put something in the basket 
she would say, "And here's something for you, Diploma." or 
"This will make a cute little outfit for you, Diploma." and 
so on. 

Eventually a bewildered shopper who'd heard all this finally 
asked, "Why do you keep calling your grandchild Diploma?" 

The grandmother replied, "I sent my daughter to Virginia Tech 
and this is what she came home with!"
