Interesting...

I had no problem reading that at all....

I always wondered why I could read my friend's letters in middle school and others struggled. She could barely spell her own name correctly. She actually dropped out of school in the 7th grade, and she was almost 18 years old at the time.....

I don't know if anything was wrong with her. I think she didn't really care to be honest.

When she dropped out of school, it was a few weeks before her 18th birthday; and she was pregnant with a 15 year old boy's child.

She is married now with 3 children, lives in the same house that she grew up in, and works at the local movie theater. She seems to have made out ok even with her low education level.

Star, I will keep that away from my son.
It will only give him another excuse to not study for spelling

Default The Silent Treatment

A man and his wife were having some problems at home
and were giving each other the silent treatment.
Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.

Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM." He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.

The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

I got this off of the AP wire this morning. Its about
a child custody hearing case.

If you have kids, PLEASE beware...this is scary...

AP Wire: September 29, 2005

A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a courtroom
drama today when he challenged a court ruling over who
should have custody of him. The boy has a history of
being beaten by his parents and the judge initially
awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child
custody law and regulations requiring that family
unity be maintained to the degree possible. The boy
surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt
beat him more than his parents and he adamantly
refused to live with her.

When the judge then suggested that he live with his
grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat
him. After considering the remainder of the immediate
family and learning that do mestic violence was
apparently a way of life among them, the judge took
the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose
who should have custody of him. After two recesses to
check legal references and confer with child welfare
officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the
Houston Texans, whom the boy firmly believes are not
capable of beating anyone.

Sorry.... I just had to send you this? GO ASTROS!!!!!!

Sad News:

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it

is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which

almost went unnoticed last week. Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The

Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part

for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg

in... and then the trouble started.



Shut up. You know it's funny.

Leaving Minnesota for Colorado, I decide to make a stop at one of those rest areas on the side of the road. I go in the washroom. The first stall was taken so I went in the second stall. I just sat down when I hear a voice from the next stall...

"Hi there, how is it going?"

Okay, I am not the type to strike conversations with strangers in washrooms on the side of the road. I didn't know what to say so finally I say:

"Not bad..."

Then the voice says:

"So, what are you doing?"

I am starting to find that a bit weird, but I say:

"Well, I'm going back to Colorado..."

Then I hear the person say all flustered:

"Look I'll call you back, every time I ask you a question this idiot in the next stall keeps answering me."

A little boy was lost at a large shopping mall.

He approached a uniformed security guard and said, "I've lost my grandpa!"

The cop asked, "What's he like?"

The little boy replied, "Jack Daniels and women with big boobs."
