    George decided to tie the knot with his long time girlfriend.

    One evening, after the honeymoon, George and his new wife was organizing his golfing equipment. His wife was standing nearby watching him.

    After along period of silence she finally speaks. "Honey, I've been thinking, now that we're married I think it's time you quit golfing. Maybe you should sell your clubs and golf cart".

    George gets this horrified look on his face.

    She says, "Darling, what's wrong"?

    George says, "There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-wife”.

    "Ex wife" she screams! "I didn't know you were married before"!

    George retorts, ”I wasn't“!

    Lady: Do you drink?

    Man: Yes

    Lady: How much a day?

    Man: 3 six packs

    Lady: How much per 6 pack

    Man: about $10.00

    Lady: And how long have you been drinking?

    Man: 15 years

    Lady: So one 6 pack cost $10.00 and you have 3 packs a day which puts your spending each month at $900. In one year, it would be $10,800 correct?

    Man: Correct
    Lady: If in 1 year you spend $10,800 not accounting for inflation, the past 15 years puts your spending at $162,000 correct?

    Man: Correct

    Lady: Do you know that if you hadn 't drunk, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 15 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?

    Man: Do you drink?

    Lady: No

    Man: Where 's your Ferrari then?

    Texas vs California
    CALIFORNIA:

    The governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the governor’s dog, then bites the governor.

    The governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie “Bambi” and realizes he should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural.

    He calls animal control.

    Animal control captures the coyote and bills the state $200 to test it for diseases and $500 to relocate it.

    He calls a veterinarian.

    The vet collects the dead dog and bills the state $200 to test it for diseases.

    The governor goes to the hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for infections from the coyote and getting his bite wound bandaged.

    The running trail is shut down for 6 months while scientists from the Department of Fish & Game conduct a $100,000 project to make sure the nature area is now free of dangerous animals.

    The governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a “coyote awareness program” for residents of the area.

    The state legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

    The governor’s security agent is fired for not stopping the attack.

    The state spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training regarding coyote behavior.

    PETA protests the coyote’s relocation and files a $5 million lawsuit against California.

    TEXAS:

    The governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks his dog.

    The governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and keeps jogging.

    The governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow-point cartridge.

    The buzzards eat the dead coyote.

    And that, my friends, is why California is broke and Texas is not.

    The banknote salesman was sent to prison for going into business for himself part-time. While behind bars, the warden made arrangements for the salesman to learn a trade. In no time, the salesman became known as one of the best carpenters in the area. He often got day passes to do woodworking jobs for people in town.

    When the warden started remodeling his kitchen, he called the salesman, now carpenter, into his office and asked him to build and install new cabinets and countertops.

    The salesman refused.

    "Gosh, I'd really like to help you," he said, "but counterfitting is what got me into prison in the first place."

    Mae everybody, PQ, yay on the dryer! Glad that's delivered and done, Det, awesome on the gallery hangings, Lav, I'm getting ready for some kind of unrest the news showed businesses putting boards up in case of rioting, either way either camp is gonna be pissed off, and yes they're hoarding the stock in the grocery store again and limiting items, Costco in one part of town is completely out of what else, t.p and paper towels, same as in March, glad your yard sign hasn't been shot, these people are soooooooo extreme! Mick, you keep yourself safe over there too, I'm worrying about second lockdowns and people going bonkers over that too, much love to all and wishes for a great BF Election day!
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

    Re: 1st nov

    Good evening folks,

    Well the polls close in little over an hour (8pm), of course my vote has been in for many weeks. YB did go today & found a big crowd there where there’s usually only a few people at a time. Looks like everyone is actually getting off their lazy a$$es & voting for a change. Results to be determined. I am not spending the whole evening glued to the TV, I am working on some embroidery orders to keep myself from getting overly anxious.

    PQ, congrats ion the dryer acquisition, haha! It’s hard to live without one really.
    Glad you got your work project figured out, good job!

    Mick, sorry to hear about your neighbor. I had a thought this morning that we are much more likely to all get the virus at some point than originally thought. It’s not disappearing & the virus itself is mutating, so I’ve read. But, the medical community has a better idea on how to treat patients now than they did back in March. I heard there were 2800 new cases today just in my state. It’s awful, it really is. Keeping ourselves as healthy as possible & taking the right supplements is the best idea for all of us. Keeping our immune systems strong is a must!

    Pauly, my yard signs even made it thru the day today, go figure, haha!
    People rioting & looting for any reason is just bad. The sad thing is a lot of city governments are tying the hands of the police departments by not letting them arrest these criminals - it’s happening in Philadelphia. I just don’t know what to say, it’s sad. Keep yourself in a safe spot & away from the madness.

    Hello to Det, Sam, Pie & Cyn!

    Have a decent night everyone! Keep your fingers crossed for good news.

    Re: 1st nov

    MAE ALL...

    Mick...sorry this is getting to you but it was bound to happen, it has gone on for so long now. And then to have it happen so close to home. I've been lucky that I don't know anyone personally that has got it so it still seems a bit unreal to me. I also can go into work everyday and get distracted by other things. Hang in there.

    Pauly...boy you're telling me, now maybe I can get everything put away. Living surrounded in a mess can get depressing. Our numbers have shot up over the weekend and the "powers that be" are concerned. Not sure what that means. LOL Try not to worry as of course there's nothing you can do about it. Just keep yourself sane and safe.

    Lav...sounds like crowds everywhere which in my opinion is a good sign. I won't be glued to the tv either, perhaps some cards is in order tonight. Yes, it was very frustrating not having the dryer. I've gotten into the habit of throwing my shirt/slacks in there in the morning to get the wrinkles out. Good to get back to my routine. LOL

    Thinking of the rest of the gang...Pi, Det, Sam, TG, AJ...hope you're all doing good.

    Finally having a training session with the prog-coord tomorrow and the boss is going to sit in. He admits he hasn't spent any time learning the new system. Seems like a good time to ask for a raise. LOL Also doing a Zoom meeting to learn how to do a Zoom meeting. Boss has made me a co-host for our Zoom AGM later this month and I want to learn all I can. With my luck the boss will say he can't attend and can I run it. Wishing everyone a calm and peaceful evening....PPQP

    Re: 1st nov

    morning everyone. feels like 4 years ago happening all over again, I was hoping for a landslide but it ain't over yet, just got a bad feeling.

    Mick, I get it, I've been feeling the same. In my area people are very nonchalant, 90% don't wear masks, our fearless leader is a moron and has made a pandemic political. Between covid and the election I got the straight and natural blues.

    PQ, is Zoom different than Skype? Good fun training!

    Lav, chickens have shut down, on strike I suppose, no eggs, but they need a rest. We have younger batch that haven't quite reach laying age yet, so maybe they'll kick it in gear.

    Pauly, I've hearing that shortages are on the horizon. If/when a vaccine I'm not sure how safe it will be. I can't remember a time when there such a need for cohesion and just the opposite has occurred.

    Det, how you been? Sounds like you're ready for a move.

    well, back to the mountains. Hopefully it has dried off enough to utilize a road that wanders close to my starting point.

    be well good friends

    Re: 1st nov

    Afternoon all not to report here. After a wild windy wet weekend we are back to cool sunny days. Sorry about your friends Mick i don't know anyone personally thats got it and i always trust the news on figures etc. We are in week of phase 5 lock down and the same as you over there only essential shops open for food meds etc and schools and collages still open. some pubs and restaurants can operate a take away system only and many closed and may not reopen. Det i love your art work are you in Vegas too? i was there for vacation i am in Dublin Ireland. going to visit sister today i usually go twice a week. I have online images of many boarded up business in the states getting prepared for riots with elections. Its looking close between the two we just have to wait and see. I do hope it does cause a lot of looting deaths and violence so stay anyway in affected areas and near polling stations. Ok have a good day x

    MAE ALL...

    Sam...good to see your post this morning. I was hoping for a landslide too but figured this is what we'd get. Zoom and skype are pretty much the same thing, a few more bells and whistles in zoom. I hope the road was dry for you today.

    AJ...I don't understand why they continue to keep the schools colleges open during a lockdown. Seems that's where most of our cases are coming from. Nobody could tell me what to do when I was in high school. LOL Hope you had a good visit with your sister today.

    It was definitely a weird day today. Seems all kinds of glitches were happening with everyone. Every time I turned around someone else was at my desk say "The strangest thing is happening", Managed to solve a couple of them the rest I need to investigate further. So it is now time to unwind. Shout out to the rest of the gang and I hope we all have a peaceful night.....PPQP

    Re: 1st nov

    Good evening friends,

    Well, we are still waiting for results & I think it may be another day or two. I’m in one of the states that’s holding things up due to the huge amount of mail in ballots, oh well. It’s looking good for Joe Biden, Trump is already demanding recounts, haha!
    I’ve been busy working on embroidery orders & grateful they keep my mind off the politics.

    PQ, I have an iron & ironing board set up in my sewing area, sometimes you have to press things as you sew. I never put my own clothes on it though, Lol, that’s what a dryer is for!!!
    Have fun teaching the boss how to do a Zoom meeting & be sure you get a raise afterwards

    Sam, we moved 7 of the oldest chickens to our Amish friend’s farm on Monday. The remaining 10 have only given up a total of 2 eggs per day since, haha. The young flock won’t start laying for a while yet so we’re going to have to go easy using eggs. Hope your day went well on the mountain.

    Anjicia, there’s been so much unrest in the US. I have never seen so many protests, riots, looting, shootings, ugh. I thought it was bad back in the 60’s, geez!
    I hope you had a good visit with your sister today.

    Pauly, what’s up with you?

    Det, hope all is well.

    Mick, the Philadelphia news stations just reported on the lockdown in Manchester & showed lots of people hitting the stores for supplies. Hope you got what you needed too.
    My daughter is reporting an increased number of people in the ER of the hospital where she works with Covid symptoms. It’s just everywhere & all we can do is follow guidelines & try to stay safe. I truly hope you’re OK

    Cyn, when is your quarantine up? Should be soon I imagine. Hope you are well.

    OK, back to work for a few more hours then work on some puzzles or something. Have a good night all!

    Hi Lav....I did watch some of the returns last night, watching for the PA results and thinking of you. Although hoping for a landslide things turned out pretty much as I expected, narrow margin and Trump crying foul. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who uses the dryer for ironing. LOL What kind of puzzles are you working on? I love jigsaws. Don't work too long tonight....PPQP
