    Oh and Abraham Lincoln wasn't very fond of blacks. I love revisionist history :D it makes us all feel so warm and fuzzy inside!

    Hello mam...got that also otherday and also included one I am putting in here...

    hope u had good visit,,,if not over...hope all is well with kids....




    E. R. Solution







    EMERGENCY ROOM....




    The other day, I needed to go to the emergency room.

    Not wanting to sit there for four hours, I put on my old Force fatigues and stuck a patch that I had downloaded off the Internet onto the front of my shirt.




    When I went into the E.R., I noticed that 3/4 of the people got up and left. I guess they decided that they weren't that sick after all.

    Cut at least three hours off my waiting time.


    Here's the patch. Feel free to use it the next time you're in need of quicker emergency service.




    It also works well if you ever have to use a laundromat.

    Thank you for asking about our visit with our daughter and her hubby...they leave LATE tomorrow night :( It's been much too short of a visit, of course, but we are so thankful to have been able to spend time with them...love on 'em...see them together and happy.

    Sorry to hear that your weekend didn't turn out quite as you'd hoped...but also share in your thankfulness that what could have been a really bad situation, wasn't!

    Back in the 80's in Austin, Tx., I worked in a shop that made leaded glass entry doors. We had 14 employees, 3 of whom spoke english.
    Because of our location in a bad part of town (east side) we had a 8' tall cyclone fence topped with rolled razor wire.
    One day a Texas DPS trooper (state) decided he wanted a new front door for his house.
    He stops by the shop in full uniform. The owner, not thinking (as usual) brings the trooper into the shop to show him the manufacturing process.

    I've never seen a place empty so fast. There were strips of cloth all over the top of that fence.
    The cop is bent over, killing himself laughing, the 3 of us left were just dumfounded.
    The owner looks at the trooper kinda sheepishly and says "I think your wait time just increased". True story

    My wife was visiting friends in London. A casual aquantance called in and asked to use her computer for a minute to check something out. To her friends horror, the visitor started to suggest running prostitutes was very profitable and that they should consider going into business.

    My wife, leaning over the visitor said, 'that's the same lap top we use in the police station'.

    Visitor departs with wife holding door!
