A Sudbury Saturday Night

The National Transportation Safety Board recently devulged they had covertly funded a project with the Canadian auto makers for the past five years, whereby the automakers were installing black box voice recorders in four-wheel drive pickup trucks and SUVs in an effort to determine, in fatal accidents, the circumstances in the last 15 seconds before the crash. They were surprised to find out that in most of the towns, the last recorded recorded words of drivers in 61.2% of crashes were, "Oh Sh@%!". Only Sudbury was different, where 89.3% of the final words were, "Hold my beer, I'm gonna try something."

An elderly Slovak man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favourite Slovak perogies with fried onions wafting up the stairs. He gathered his remaining strength, and lifted himself from the bed.

Leaning against the wall he slowly made his way out of the bedroom and with even greater effort gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs. With laboured breath, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen. Where, if not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table was literally hundreds of his favourite perogies.

Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his Ukrainian wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man? Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table,landing on his knees in a crumpled posture. His parched lips parted, the wondrous taste of the perogies was already in his mouth, seemingly bringing him back to life. The aged and withered man trembled on his way to the perogies at the edge of the table, when he was suddenly smacked with a wooden spoon by his wife.

"Bugger off!" she said. "They're for the funeral."

Mongo Opens Furniture Store

This reporter has discovered that Mongo, the blond haired ape employed by the Windsor Fire & Rescue Services, has opened a furniture store. “I got the idea when Mike Anderson and Bob Carroll opened up their establishments”, stated the fuzzy one. “Hey, if they can do it then why can’t I?”

When inquired about his new business Mongo beamed, “When I heard that Bob was into “multi tasking” it hit me like a ton of bananas!! I can do this too, so I decided to open a combination furniture / stereo / rock climbing thingy”. When asked to explain how his new store operates Mongo kind of starts to drool, his eyes glaze over and develops this dreamy look that comes over him. This reporter has witnessed this “look” before and discovered that the “look” is mostly present when Mongo “slips away” and daydreams about long summer days in the mountains of the Kenya Reserve. “Oh, sorry”, quips the hairy one, “I kind of drifted off there for a second. Well, my business is very vast. In one section is the basic straw furniture like you’d see in this type of motif. We have lots of hammocks and those funny tribal masks that people hang on their walls. ”
As we talk longer Mongo appears to get more animated and continues
, “The other section is the stereo and home theatre stuff. With every home theatre system we sell we also give the customers a free copy of the movie Tarzan with Johnny Weismuller. Also, we give them a coupon for Zhers for a can of pineapples and a bunch of imported bananas. We got this customer service thing down pat”, beams Mongo.

As we toured the store Mongo introduced me to his “pride and joy” namely the Rock climbing section of the store. When asked about this section, Mongo said, “How do you like this set up? Here, check this out”, yelled Mongo and with one swift movement Mongo was half way up the wall and grabbed a plastic vine and swung around the section batting down model bi planes that were attached to the ceiling. “I love this! I got the idea from that old King Kong movie”, laughs Mongo. “Have you seen the new King Kong movie?”, he asks as he continues to swing nonchalantly around the store leaping from one plastic vine to the other. “I was the technical consultant for the new one”, he beams.

I wished him success with his new venture and left his new store. When last seen Mongo was busy picking his toes and had that dreamy look on his face again. Thinking of the Serengeti plains I would imagine.

Tips For Around The House - Part 1

A sealed envelope - Put in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a knife under the flap. The envelope can then be resealed. (hmmmmmm...)
Use Empty toilet paper roll to store appliance cords. It keeps them neat and you can write on the roll what appliance it belongs to.
For icy door steps in freezing temperatures: get warm water and put Dawn dishwashing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won't refreeze. (wish I had known this for the last 40 years!) =================================================
To remove old wax from a glass candleholder, put it in the freezer for a few hours. Then take the candleholder out and turn it upside down. The wax will fall out. =================================================
Crayon marks on walls? This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped in baking soda. Comes off with little effort (elbow grease that is!).
Permanent marker on appliances/counter tops (like store receipt BLUE!) rubbing alcohol on paper towel.

Whenever I purchase a box of S.O.S Pads, I immediately take a pair of scissors and cut each pad into halves. After years of having tothrow away rusted and unused and smelly pads, I finally decided that this would be much more economical. Now a box of S.O.S pads last me indefinitely! In fact, I have noticed that the scissors get sharpened this way!
Blood stains on clothes? Not to worry! Just pour a little hydrogen peroxide on a cloth and proceed to wipe off every drop of blood. Works every time! Now, where to put the body? LOL
Use vertical strokes when washing windows outside and horizontal for inside windows. This way you can tell which side has the streaks. Straight vinegar will get outside windows really clean. Don't wash windows on a sunny day. They will dry too quickly and will probably streak. =================================================
Spray a bit of perfume on the light bulb in any room to create a lovely light scent in each room when the light is turned on.
Place fabric softener sheets in dresser drawers and your clothes will smell freshly washed for weeks to come. You can also do this with towels and linen. =================================================
Candles will last a lot longer if placed in the freezer for at least 3 hours prior to burning. =================================================
To clean artificial flowers, pour some salt into a paper bag and add the flowers. Shake vigorously as the salt will absorb all the dust and dirt and leave your artificial flowers looking like new! Works like acharm! =================================================

The Cynics Guide To Life

1. Follow your dream! Unless it's the one where you're at work in your underwear during a fire drill.

2. Always take time to stop and smell the roses and sooner or later, you'll inhale a bee.

3. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

4. If you don't like my driving, don't call anyone. Just take another road. That's why the highway department made so many of them.

5. If a motorist cuts you off, just turn the other cheek. Nothing gets the message across like a good mooning.

6. When I'm feeling down, I like to whistle. It makes the neighbor's dog run to the end of his chain and gag himself.

7. It's always darkest before the dawn. So if you're going to steal the neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

8. A handy telephone tip: Keep a small chalkboard near the phone. That way, when a salesman calls, you can hold the receiver up to it and run your fingernails across it until he hangs up.

9. Each day I try to enjoy something from each of the four food groups: the bonbon group, the salty-snack group, the caffeine group and the "What-ever-the-thing-in-the-tinfoil-in-the-back -of-the-fridge-is" group.

10. Into every life some rain must fall. Usually when your car windows are down.

11. Just remember: You gotta break some eggs to make a real mess on the neighbor's car!

12. When you find yourself getting irritated with someone, try to remember that all men are brothers and just give them a noogie or an Indian burn.

13. This morning I woke up to the unmistakable scent of pigs in a blanket. That's the price you pay for letting the relativ es stay over.

14. It's a small world. So you gotta use your elbows a lot.

15. Keep your nose to the grindstone and your shoulder to the wheel, it's a lot cheaper than plastic surgery.

16. This land is your land. This land is my land. So stay on your land.

17. Love is like a roller coaster: When it's good you don't want to get off, and when it isn't you can't wait to throw up.

There once was a man named Boisvert
Who decided to hitch a ride to somewhere

Hitchhiking for a day

His thumb got him only half way there

Las Vegas Churches

This may come as a surprise to those of you not living in Las Vegas, but there are more Catholic churches there than casinos. Not surprisingly, some worshippers at Sunday services will give casino
chips rather than cash when the basket is passed.

Since they get chips from so many different casinos, the churches have devised a method to collect the offerings. The churches send all their
collected chips to a nearby Franciscan Monastery for sorting and then the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and cashed in.

This is done by the chip monks.

Didn't see it comin' did ya?!?!

The Dead Cat Joke

A cat died and went to heaven. God met her at the Golden Gate and said, "You have been a good cat all of these years. Anything you want is yours for the asking."

The cat thought a minute and then said, "All my life I lived on a farm and slept on hard wooden floors. I would like a real fluffy pillow to sleep on."

God said, "Say no more." Instantly, the cat had a huge fluffy pillow.A few days later, six mice were killed in an accident and they all went to heaven together.

God met the mice at the gates of heaven with the same offer that He made to the cat.The mice said, "Well, we have had to run all of our lives: from cats, dogs and even people with brooms! If we could just have some little roller-skates, we would never have to run again."

God answered, "It is done." And the mice had beautiful little roller-skates.

About a week later, God decided to check on the cat. He found her sound asleep on her fluffy pillow. God gently awakened the cat and asked, "Is everything ok? How have you been doing? Are you happy?"

The cat replied, "Oh, it is WONDERFUL. I have never been so happy in my life! My pillow is fluffy, and those little Meals-on-Wheels you have been sending are absolutely delicious."

(Taken from papers written by a class of 8-year-olds)

  • Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of her own. They like other people's.
  • A grandfather is a man grandmother. Grandparents don't have to do anything except be there when we come to see them.
  • They are so old they shouldn't play hard or run.
  • It is good if they drive us to the store and have lots of quarters for us.
  • When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars.
  • They show us and talk to us about the color of the flowers and also Why we shouldn't step on "cracks."
  • They don't say, "Hurry up."
  • Usually grandmothers are fat, but not too fat to tie your shoes.
  • They wear glasses and funny underwear.
  • They can take their teeth and gums out.
  • Grandparents don't have to be smart.
  • They have to answer questions like "why isn't God married?" and "How come dogs chase cats?"
  • When they read to us, they don't skip.
  • They don't mind if we ask for the same story over again.
  • Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don't have television, because they are the only grown ups who like to spend time with us.
  • They know we should have snack-time before bedtime and they say prayers with us every time, and kiss us even when we've acted bad.

BR's Bed & Breakfast Bait Shoppe

This reporter has just discovered that Grizzly Adams look-alike, Bob Carroll, retired from Windsor Fire & Rescue Services has opened a novel business. Namely, a fashionable bed and breakfast combination bait shop. When asked about this new type of company, Mr. Carroll replied, “Hey, if Mike Anderson can open a hair salon then I can certainly open a business that I’ve always dreamed of opening and operating successfully.”

The idea came to Mr. Carroll when he visited his good friend, Gary Spratt at the latter’s trailer
. “I was so intrigued with the trailer aspect that I had an epiphany! Why, I could open a bed and breakfast using a trailer. I don’t believe it’s ever been done before”, cried Bob.

When asked how he came up with the idea to combine the bait shop into his plan Bob just beams and begins to get very animated. “Get this!” , he laughs, “I think it’s brilliant. I’m located right next door to a small lake that is teeming with bottom feeders. I call them ‘lawyer fish’”, he grins. “Anyway, I’m starting to get lots of new clients who want to spend their honeymoons here. They seem to be a nice bunch but I think they should look into some sort of dental plans. Most of them would be right at home at a Willy Nelson concert”., declared Bob. "I'm also thinking of installing a small oval racetrack on the property as well. It seems these folks love to drive their vehicles fast and race each other. They're mesmerized by that new movie "The Dukes of Hazzard".

Bob, affectionaltely known as B.R, has some novel ideas about attracting future customers to his establishment. Bob said, “Well, it seems most of them want to relax on the front porch and have a few refreshments. So, I’ve decided to put a sofa and a fridge on the porch for their enjoyment. Besides when my friend Gary Glitter visits he and I can sit there too and reminisce. Yee Haw!”

When last seen by this reporter Bob was busy painting the pickup with a paint brush and latex paint.
