1.) And then the Fight Started

Sent in by Ernie Hooker

My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping channels.
She asked, ‘What’s on TV?’
I said, ‘Dust.’

And then the fight started…

My wife and I are watching “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” while we were in bed.. I turned to her and said, “Do you want to have sex?”
“No,” she answered.
I then said, “Is that your final answer?”
She didn’t even look at me this time, simply saying, ”Yes.”
So I said, “Then I’d like to phone a friend.”

And then the fight started….

Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, grabbed the dog, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked up the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.

I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed.. I cuddled up to my wife’s back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, “The weather out there is terrible.”

My loving wife of 10 years replied, “Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?”

And that’s how the fight started…

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
She said, ‘I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds.’

I bought her a scale.

And then the fight started…

When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace expensive…
so, I took her to a gas station.

And then the fight started…

After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security. The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver’s license to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home. I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later.

The woman said, ‘Unbutton your shirt’. So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair. She said, ‘That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me’ and she processed my Social Security application.

When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office.

She said, ‘You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability, too.’

And then the fight started….

My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a
nearby table.

My wife asked, ‘Do you know her?’

‘Yes,’ I sighed, ‘She’s my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she
hasn’t been sober since.’

‘My God!’ says my wife, ‘who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?’

And then the fight started…

I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.
“I’ll have the strip steak, medium rare, please.”
He said, “Aren’t you worried about the mad cow?””

Nah, she can order for herself.”

And then the fight started…

A woman is standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror. She is not happy with what she sees and says to her husband, ‘I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.’

The husband replies, ‘Your eyesight’s damn near perfect.’

And then the fight started…



2.) WASHING CLOTHES

Sent in by Robin Hoselton and Joyce Riley

Years ago an Alabama grandmother gave a new bride the following recipe (Exact copy as found in an old scrapbook):

Build fire in backyard to heat kettle of rain water. Set tubs so smoke wont blow in eyes if wind is pert. Shave one hole cake of lie soap in boilin water.

Sort things, make 3 piles

1 pile white,

1 pile colored,

1 pile work britches and rags.

To make starch, stir flour in cool water to smooth, then thin down with boiling water.

Take white things, rub dirty spots on board, scrub hard, and boil, then rub colored don’t boil just wrench and starch.

Take things out of kettle with broom stick handle, then wrench, and starch.

Hang old rags on fence.

Spread tea towels on grass.

Pore wrench water in flower bed. Scrub porch with hot soapy water. Turn tubs upside down.

Go put on clean dress, smooth hair with hair combs. Brew cup of tea, sit and rock a spell and count your blessings.

================================================

(For you non-southerners -‘wrench’ means ‘rinse’.


3.) My Dad

Sent in by Jenny Patterson

I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes. We decided to grab a bite at the food court. I noticed he was watching a teenager
sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors: green, red, orange, and blue. My dad kept staring at him. The teenager would
look and find him staring every time.

When the teenager had enough, he sarcastically asked, “What’s the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?”

Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response; knowing he would have a good
one.

And in classic style he did not bat an eye in his response. “Got drunk once and had sex with a peacock. I was
just wondering if you were my son.”

 

4.) Government Contracting

Sent in By Ernie Hooker

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at The White House in D.C. One from New Jersey, another from Tennessee and the third, from Florida. They go with a White House Official to examine the fence.

The Florida contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil.   ‘Well,’ he says, ‘I figure the job will run about $900:  $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.’

The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, ‘I can do this job for $700:   $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.’

The New Jersey contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, ‘$2,700.’

The official, incredulous, says, ‘You didn’t even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?’

The New Jersey contractor whispers back, ‘$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence.’

‘Done!’, replies the government official.

And, that my friends is how it’s done!!


5.) A Blonde goes to Bed Bath & Beyond to buy curtains. She tells the clerk, ‘I would like to buy a pair of pink curtains.’

The clerk assures her that they have a large selection of pink curtains. She shows her several patterns but the blonde seems to be having a hard time choosing.  Finally, she selects a lovely pink floral print. The clerk then asks what size curtains she needs.

The blonde promptly replies, ‘Seventeen inches.’

‘Seventeen inches?’ asked the clerk. ‘That sounds very small. What room are they for?’

The blonde says, ‘They aren’t for a room. They are for my new computer monitor.

The surprised clerk replies, ‘But Miss, computers do not need curtains!’

The blonde says, ‘Hellllooooooooo … I’ve got Windoooooows…….


6.) Why Men Don’t Write Advice Columns
Sent in by Shelli Carlisle


Dear Walter:
I hope you can help me here. The other day, I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn’t gone more than a mile down the road when my engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband’s help. When I got home I couldn’t believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with the neighbor lady. I am 32, my husband is 34, and we have been married for twelve years.

When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that they had been having an affair for the past six months. I told him to stop or I would leave him. He was let go from his job six months ago and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly distant. He won’t go to counseling and I’m afraid I can’t get through to him anymore.

Can you please help?
Sincerely, Sheila

……….

Dear Sheila:
A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a
variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there is no debris
in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the vacuum pipes and hoses on the
intake manifold and also check all grounding wires. If none of these
approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is
faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburetor float chamber.

I hope this helps.
-Walter

8.) Embarrassing Medical Exams

Sent in by Dan Young

1.   A man comes into the ER and yells, “My wife’s going to have her baby in the cab!”  I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the cab, lifted the lady’s dress, and began to take off her underwear.  Suddenly I noticed that there were several cabs —and I was in the wrong one.

3.   One day I had to be the bearer of bad news when I told a wife that her husband had died of a massive myocardial infarct.  Not more than five minutes later, I heard her reporting to the rest of the family that he had died of a “massive internal fart.”

4.   During a patient’s two week follow-up appointment with his cardiologist, he informed me, his doctor, that he was having trouble with one of his medications.  “Which one?” I asked.  “The patch, the nurse told me to put on a new one every six hours and now I’m running out of places to put it!”  I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn’t see.  Yes, the man had over fifty patches on his body!  Now, the instructions include removal of the old patch before applying a new one.

Was I tickling you?”  She replied, “No doctor, but the song you were whistling was, “I wish I was an Oscar Meyer Wiener”.

9.) Officialdom…
Sent in by Nancy Brockman

A State Department of Water representative stopped at a farm and talked with an old farmer. He told the farmer, “I need to inspect your farm for your water allocation.”
The old farmer said, “Okay, but don’t go in that field over there.”

The Water representative said, “Mister, I have the authority of the State Government with me. See this card? This card means I am allowed to go WHEREVER I WISH on any agricultural land. No questions asked or answered. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?”

The embarrassed old farmer nodded politely and went about his chores.
Later, the old farmer heard loud screams and saw the Water Rep running for the fence and close behind was the farmer’s bull. The bull was gaining on the Water Rep with every step.The Rep was clearly terrified, so the old farmer immediately threw down his tools, ran to the fence and shouted out…..Your card! Show him your card!”

Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.‘Amazing,’ he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal even more.Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper
behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120.
Suddenly he thought, ‘What am I doing? I’m too old for this,’ and pulled over to await the trooper’s arrival.Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, ‘Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday.  If you can give me a reason for speeding that I’ve never heard before, I’ll
let you go.’

The old gentleman paused. Then said, ‘Years ago, my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.’

‘Have a good day, sir,’ replied the trooper.

11.) The Upside to Older Women
Sent in by Jenny Patterson

After being married for 40 years, I took after being married for 40 years, I took a careful look at my wife on day and said, “Honey, 40 years ago we had a cheap aprartment, a cheap car, slept on a sofa bed, and watched a 10-inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 25-year-old gal.
Now I have a $500,000 home, a $45,000 car, nice big bed, and plasma screen TV; but I’m sleeping with a 65-year-old woman.  It seems to me that you’re not holding up your side of things.”My wife is a very reasonable woman.  She told me to go out and find a hot 25-year-old gal, and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, sleeping on a sofa bed, and watching a 10-inch black and white TV.AREN’T OLDER WOMEN GREAT?They really know how to solve your mid-life crisis.



12.) Grandma’s Apron
Sent in by Dan Young

I don’t think our kids know what an apron is.  The principal use of Grandma’s apron was to protect the dress underneath, but along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven.  It was wonderful for drying children’s tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.  From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.  When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids.  And when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms.  Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove.  Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron.  From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls.  In the fall, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.  When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.  When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.  It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that “old-time apron” that served so many purposes.
Remember:

Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool.
Her granddaughters set theirs on the window sill to thaw.
Hope this brings back fond memories of someone you love.
