Thursday, December 28th, 2017

Only 362 sleeps until Christmas 2018. So, there’s plenty of time to pay those nasty credit cards off and start all over again.

Helpful Money-Saving Tip: Without a receipt, it’s difficult to exchange that one-of-a-kind gift you don’t like. No need to stress! Just re-gift it. Problem solved!

Please be careful …….. you know how I worry.


Problem Solving:
After taxiing down the runway, the plane suddenly stopped, turned around, and returned to the gate. 2 hours later the plane finally took off. A worried passenger asked the flight attendant, “What was the problem?”

“The pilot was very concerned about the noise one of the engines was making,” explained the flight attendant, “and it took us a while to find another pilot.”


Game Time:
A young man was very excited because he won a ticket to the Super Bowl. When he arrived, his excitement lessened as he realized his seat was in the back of the stadium.

As he searched the rows ahead of him for a better seat, he found an empty one right next to the field. He approached the man sitting next to the empty seat and asked if it was taken. The man replied, “No.” Amazed the young man asked, “How could someone pass up a seat like this?” The older gentleman responded, “That’s my wife’s seat. We’ve been to every Super Bowl together since the day we were married but she has passed away.” “Oh, how sad,” the man said. “I’m sorry to hear that, but couldn’t you find a friend or relative to come with you?” “No,” the man said, “They’re all at the funeral.”


Quotes:

2) “Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.” – George Burns
3) “Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until they speak.” – Steven Wright


Frog Feets:
There was a scientist who was studying frogs. The scientist told the frog to jump, so the frog jumped, and he jumped 4 feet. So the scientist wrote in his notebook: a frog with 4 feet jumps 4 feet.

The scientist then cut off one leg. He told the frog to jump, so the frog jumped. He jumped 3 feet. So the scientist wrote in his notebook: a frog with 3 feet jumps 3 feet.

The scientist then cut off one more leg. He told the frog to jump, so the frog jumped. He jumped 2 feet. So the scientist wrote in his notebook: a frog with 2 feet jumps 2 feet.

The scientist cut off one more leg. He told the frog to jump, so the frog jumped. He jumped 1 foot. So the scientist wrote in his notebook: a frog with 1 foot jumps 1 foot.

The scientist cut off the last leg. He told the frog jump, Jump, JUMP!

But the frog did not move. So the scientist wrote in his notebook: a frog with no legs goes deaf.

“Gosh,” James says, “why I hardly know the girl.”

You Can’t Hide Money:
A guy driving an old Kia pulled up to a stoplight next to a brand new Rolls-Royce.

He rolled down his window and shouted to the driver of the Rolls. “Hey, buddy, that’s a nice car. Did you get a phone in your Rolls? I’ve got a phone in my Kia!”

The driver of the Rolls looked over and said snobbishly, “Yes, I have a phone.”

The driver of the Kia said, “Cool! Hey, you also got a fridge in there, too? I’ve got one in the back seat of my Kia!”

The driver of the Rolls, much annoyed, says, “Yes, I have a refrigerator.”

The driver of the Kia said, “That’s great, man! Hey, you got a TV in there? You know, I got a TV in the back seat of my Kia!”

The driver of the Rolls, quite irritated by now, replied, “Of course, I have a television. A Rolls-Royce is the finest luxury car in the world!”

The driver of the Kia said, “Yes, a very cool car! Hey, you got a bed in there? I got a bed in the back of my Kia!”

The driver of the Rolls upset that he did not have a bed, sped away and went straight to the dealer, where he promptly ordered a bed to be installed in the back of his Rolls-Royce.

The next morning, he returned to pick up his car, and the bed looked superb It came complete with silk sheets and a brass-trimmed headboard. It was clearly a bed fit for a Rolls-Royce. So the driver of the Rolls began searching for the Kia. He drove around all day and finally found the Kia late that night.

It was parked, with all the windows fogged up from the inside. He got out and knocked on the window of the Kia. When there wasn’t any answer, he continued knocking and knocking until finally, the owner of the Kia lowered the window, and stuck his soaking wet head out.

“I now have a bed in the back of my Rolls-Royce,” the driver of the Rolls stated arrogantly.

The driver of the Kia looked at him narrowly and said, “You got me out of the shower to tell me that?!?!”


3 Ponders to Ponder:
1) Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
2) All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
3) Healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.


The Reason:
A man woke up in the morning deeply repentant after a bitter fight with his wife the previous night.

He noticed with dismay the crate of beer bottles that had caused the fight. He took it outside and started smashing the empty bottles one by one onto the wall.

He smashed the 1st bottle swearing, “You’re the reason I fight with my wife”.

He smashed the 2nd bottle, “You’re the reason my children don’t speak to me”.

He smashed the 3rd bottle, “You’re the reason I don’t have a decent job”.

When he took the 4th bottle, he realized that the bottle was still sealed and was full. He hesitated for a moment and said, “You stand aside. I know you were not involved”.


Be a Man:
A husband had just finished reading a new book entitled, “You Can Be THE Man of Your House”. Finding new courage that he never knew he had, he stormed into the kitchen and announced to his wife, “From now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house and my word is the ‘Law.’ You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, bring it to me, and when I am done eating my meal, you will clear the dishes and serve me a scrumptious dessert. After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me, and you will do as I want! Afterward, you are going to draw me a bath so I can relax. You will put on soothing music, wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my robe. You will massage my feet and hands to relieve any last bit of tension so that I can sleep like a baby. Then tomorrow, guess who’s going to dress me and comb my hair?

The wife replied, “The funeral director would be my first guess unless I decide to have you cremated.”


Healthcare:
A man came to the clinic to have an MRI. He was put into the machine by a very young female technician. Sometime later, when the examination was over, he was helped out of the machine by a far older woman.

The man remarked, “How long was I in there?”


Speeding on Main:
A police officer in a small town stopped a motorist who was speeding down Main Street. “But officer,” the man said, “I can explain.”

“Just be quiet!!!” snapped the officer. “…or I’m going to let you cool off in jail until the chief gets back.”

“But officer, I just wanted to say….”

“And I said KEEP QUIET! Now you’re going to jail!”

A few hours later, the officer checked up on his prisoner and said, “Lucky for you that the chief’s at his daughter’s wedding. He’ll be in a good mood when he gets back.”

“Don’t count on it,” said the man in the cell. “I’m the groom!”


Another Client Comment:
“I just had the privilege of listening and seeing Glenn Strange and his comic magic performance. I recommend him to anyone … what an awesome performance he did tonight. Truly a lot of laughter, a lot of fun, a lot of people had a great time. He would be appropriate for any type of an event.”

Greek Mythology:
The teacher asked: “What was the name of the person in Greek mythology who was half man and half animal?”
Billy raised his hand. “Yes?” the teacher acknowledged.
“Buffalo Bill,” replied Billy.


The Inheritance:
Two friends met in the street. One looked sad and almost on the verge of tears. The other man asked, “Hey my man, how come you look like the whole world has caved in?”

The sad fellow said, “Let me tell you. Three weeks ago, an uncle died and left me 50-thousand dollars.”

“That’s not bad at all…!”

“Hold on, I’m just getting started. Two weeks ago, a cousin I never knew kicked-the-bucket and left me 95-thousand, tax-free to boot.”

“Well, that’s great! I’d like that.”

“Last week, my grandfather passed away. I inherited almost a million.”

“So why are so glum?”

“This week – nothing!”


The Lumberjack:
A large, well-established, Canadian lumber camp advertised that they were looking for a good lumberjack.

The very next day, a skinny little man showed up at the camp with his ax, and knocked on the head lumberjack’s door. The head lumberjack took one look at the little man and told him to leave.

“Just give me a chance to show you what I can do,” said the skinny man.

“Okay, see that giant redwood over there?” said the lumberjack.

“Take your ax and go cut it down.”

The skinny man headed for the tree, and in five minutes he was back knocking on the lumberjack’s door. “I cut the tree down,” said the man.

The lumberjack couldn’t believe his eyes and said, “Where did you get the skill to chop down trees like that?”

“In the Sahara Forest,” replied the puny man.

“You mean the Sahara Desert,” said the lumberjack.

The little man laughed and answered back, “Oh sure, that’s what they call it now!”

Bits of Wisdom:

2)  Someone who thinks logically provides a nice contrast to the real world.
3)  The way some people find fault, you’d think there was some kind of reward.


Bank Business:
The loans officer says the bank will need security for a $10,000 loan, so the man hands over the keys and documents of his new Rolls Royce, parked the nearby bank’s parking lot. Everything checks out, and the bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. An employee drives the Rolls Royce into the bank’s underground secure garage and parks it there.

Two weeks later, the man returns and repays the $10,000, plus interest, which is $25.08. The loans officer says: “We are delighted to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multi-millionaire. You have a good-sized, harbourside mansion, a sizeable equity portfolio and no debt at all. We are curious as to why you would bother to borrow $5000?”

The man replied: “Where else in New York City, can I park my car safely for two weeks for $25?”


Bits of Wisdom:
1)  Don’t argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

3) Teacher: “How can you make so many mistakes in just one day?”
Suzy: “I get up early!”


Taxi Ride:
A man walks out to the street and catches a taxi just going by. He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie says, ‘Perfect timing. You’re just like Fred.’

Passenger: ‘Who?’

Cabbie: ‘Fred Freeman. He’s a guy who did everything right all the time.
Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happened like that to Fred Freeman every single time.’

Passenger: ‘There are always a few clouds over everybody.’

Cabbie: ‘Not Fred Freeman. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand-Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star, and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy.’

Passenger: ‘Sounds like he was something really special.

Cabbie: ‘There’s more… He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody’s birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Fred Freeman, he could do everything right.’

Passenger: ‘Wow, some guy then.’

Cabbie: ‘He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Fred, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back even if she were in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too – He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Fred Freeman.’

Passenger: ‘An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?’

Cabbie: ‘Well, I never actually met Fred, he died.

I married his widow’.
