I went to town this morning for DVD's to run my Restore backup disc on and at 8:30, there's not too many people out shopping, but by 10:00, you start thinking about looking for somewhere to hide!Hahaa...I found the disc and some other things and made a mad dash for home. Hubby made tetrazzini for lunch and we watched the movie, Hancock. It was Good!!! See it if you get the chance!

Bored Husbands.....

Bored Husband.......
After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping BORING and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunately, my wife is like most women; she loved to browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Wal-Mart:

Dear Mrs. Samsel,

Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to BAN both of you from the store. Our complaints against Mr. Samsel are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras.

#1 June 15: Took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in people's carts when they weren't looking.

#2 July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute intervals.

#3 July 7: Made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.

#4 July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, ... "Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away."

#5 August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&M's on layaway.

#6 August 14: Moved a "CAUTION - WET FLOOR" sign to a carpeted area.

#7 August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told other shoppers he'd invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department.

#8 August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, "Why can't you people just leave me alone?"

#9 September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

#10 September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

#11 October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the "Mission Impossible" theme.

#12 October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his "Madonna look" by using different sizes of funnels.

#13 October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled "PICK ME! PICK ME!"

#14 October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed "OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!" And last, but not least.

#15 October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, "Hey! There's no toilet paper in here!"
(taken from an email)
Hahaaa....Happy Monday Everyone!

RE: $700 Billion bailout package

Hahahaaaa...How Nauseating!! The "Hearing" on the Hill...Lots of gesturing, Martin Luther King has been quoted, Barney Frank is "put out"...LOL...right...Lots of hand waving and lowered eyebrows and tight lips....GADS!! WHY Am I Watching This???? The Answers to the questions are considered "fly bys" and the Questions are SO Long and convoluted that it's NO WONDER the answers are vague, at best!! WHY can't someone just ask....

"Where's the money?"

"Who'd 'ja Give it to?"


"What's the BALANCE?"
"Where's DONNA'S CHECK???"
What PUTZS!!! ..... OK, I'll back away from the TV now...Can you imagine? Now they're breaking for LUNCH!!!! DO They EVER WORK????.......Is there a Pill for this???
