PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that there are some Dumb Criminals in the World


A Fort Lauderdale man was put out of his house by a termite infestation and was staying elsewhere while exterminators draped a giant tent over his house and filled it with poison gas. He was having difficulty sleeping so at around 4 a.m. he took out his smartphone to check a surveillance camera he'd installed in his living room -- and saw two dudes with shirts over their mouths rummaging around through his stuff.

He called police, who went to the house full of deadly gases to investigate but couldn't go inside because it was a house full of deadly gases. They called the exterminator to come and ventilate the house so they could get inside. They had no way of knowing that the burglars had already escaped.

Except an officer was tipped off that the men were on their way to a certain Swap Shop to hock their pilfered jewelry -- so police found the car and arrested two men inside on burglary charges and a third man on an unrelated warrant. It wasn't safe to enter the house until 1:30 the following afternoon.

"What kind of person does that?" asked the Fort Lauderdale Police spokesman. "What kind of person risks their life for a couple of pieces of property, going into a house with 'Danger! Do not enter! Poison!' signs all over it?"

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that there are some Dumb Criminals in the World


A Port Richey, Florida man downed a six-pack of beer and a handful of Oxycontin and then proceeded to get arrested for causing a ruckus at his neighbor's house. He found himself released from jail a few hours later. Shortly after being released, he was arrested again for trying to break into cars in the visitors' parking lot of the jail he was just released from.

The man’s substance-fueled trouble began when deputies found him crawling out from underneath bushes at his neighbor's house. His shorts were sagging low on his waste and on backward. A witness claimed he had been peeing in the bushes. Witnesses also claimed he banged on his neighbor's door, broke the glass panel of a porch light, and then ripped the light's electrical wiring out of the wall.

The intoxicated 48-year-old was arrested for criminal mischief and booked into jail at 7:38 p.m. He was released around 10 o'clock that night and was waiting in the visitors' parking lot of the jail for a ride, but apparently he got impatient. A woman drove up in her Acura. Shortly after she got out, the man tried to get in. She yelled, and he explained he thought it was his car.

Shortly afterward, however, he tried breaking into yet another car. A deputy was watching this time, and less than two hours after his release, the man was taken back to jail and was charged with two counts of attempted auto burglary.

Good Morning from Manistique, Michigan.

The biking vacation has been good so far--two nights camping and the ladies are on their second day of biking. The weather has been great for biking and also for sleeping--though there is a possible thunderstorm this afternoon.

First campsite was in Escanaba and we were pretty much alone in the back of the park--but trains were by all night long. I also decided that I needed a real pillow and an air mattress if I was going to get any sleep at all--so as they headed out to ride, I went shoping. Got the groceries needed for supper last night as well as tonight and got an air mattress and pillow at Wal-mart!

Sleeping last night was better, however the party site across from us did not head to bed until close to 2 am! The ladies are on their way to our third night at a rustic campground right along Lake Michigan; I got needed supplies, stopped at Hardees to use their Wi-Fi and I am headed out to check on them along the way--I will try to check each day around 2-2 1/2 hours into the trip.

Tomorrow night we are in a hotel in St. Ignace, so I will check in then. Have a great Labor Day!

Hello.......

Barb - sounds like fun and adventures so far......smart for picking up the air-mattress and pillow early on in the trip.....Your back will probably thank you the rest of the way.

Tavi is here, watching her Einstein Jr. and eating Lunchables....complete with a PBC for dessert (which she is slowly indulging on). We also went to HL for awhile. She got some glitter foam stars for her craft box she keeps here. she just left so I am debating on whether or not to take a nap before going grocery shopping..... LOL

The girl came running in tears to her father. "Dad, you gave me some terrible financial advice!" she cried.

"I did? What did I tell you?" said the dad.

"You told me to put my money in that big bank, and now that big bank is in trouble."

"What are you talking about? That's one of the largest banks in the world," he said. "Surely there must be some mistake."

"I don't think so," she sniffed. "They just returned one of my checks with a note saying, 'Insufficient Funds'."

Checking in from St. Ignace--we got our first rain of the trip and it stormed hard for about 2 hours last night before we made supper. We have a canopy--Wisconsin Badgers in fact--that we put over half of the picnic table and still could use the stove on the end. The tents did well and we were not wet!

We have a hotel stay tonight and are also meeting some friends for out for supper. Trip to Mackinac Island on the ferry tomorrow and the plan is to take all four bikes over--however the report is 70% chance of rain, so that may change. Then. driving to our next campsite--Wilderness State Park.

Until Next Time---Have a great week!

A man walked into a Topeka, Kansas Kwik Shop and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

In Virginia, a janitor went to great lengths to avoid I.D. in a 7-Eleven robbery, using a ski mask and rental car for the occasion. But he also wore his work uniform, which said "Cedar Woods Apartments" and had his name, Dwayne, stitched across the front.

Hello from the Quaality Inn in Traverse City? We got rain early this morning while sleeping and we saw a bit of a lull in the rain on the phone, so we packed up at 5 a.m................. On the road by 6 and found a Big Boy for breakfast. Headed south to TC, and it stopped raining about a half hour in. The riders got out and I drove to the hotel and was able to check in early. Got a shower and the ladies got here a bit ago. It is raining again, but we are going to check out the stores.

I am not sure when I will be back online--may not be until we got home!

Good Morning--Happy Saturday Morning from Traverse City. It is raining a bit this morning, but the bikers headed out from the hotel a bit ago. We are planning to meet in a couple of hours in Sutton Bay.

The plan right now is to stay in Leelanau State Park, which is on the tip of the thumb of Michigan. I think it is to rain on and off all day, so we'll see what the weather is like when we get there and decide if we want to still camp or try to find an "indoor place". Tomorrow night we are staying at a campground in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park--that is supposed to be a beautiful place to see and explore.

Monday is the last day of biking and then we head to Muskegon in the car to the ferry to take over Lake Michigan to Milwaukee and then home!

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

The District Attorney requested all the robbery victims to come to the police station to study a lineup of five people. He placed his suspect at the end of the line. Then he asked each to step forward and say, "Give me all your money... and I need some change in quarters, nickels and dimes." The first four did it right. However, when it was the last man's turn to recite, he broke the case by blurting out, "That isn't what I said."

Oklahoma City: A man was on trial for the armed robbery of a convenience store in a district court when he fired his lawyer. The assistant district attorney said the man was doing a fair job of defending himself until the store manager testified that he was the robber. The defendant jumped up, accused the woman of lying and then said, "I should of blown your (expletive) head off." The defendant paused, then quickly added, "If I'd been the one that was there." The jury took 20 minutes to convict him and recommended a 30 year sentence.

Betty was soon to be married. More than anything, she wanted to wear the wedding dress her mother was married in. Betty's mother was beaming with pride as she gave her consent.

Later in the evening, the family gathered in the living room to wait while Betty tried on the dress. When Betty entered the room, there was a chorus of approval. The dress fit perfectly and looked wonderful on her.

Tears ran down the face of Betty's mother.

Seeing this, Betty said, "Don't worry Mom, you're not losing a daughter, your gaining a son."

"Forget about that!" she said with a sob. "I used to fit into that dress!"

A bank robber in Virginia Beach got a nasty surprise when a dye pack designed to mark stolen money exploded in his Fruit-of-the-Looms. The robber apparently stuffed the loot down the front of his pants as he was running out the door. "He was seen hopping and jumping around with an explosion taking place inside his pants," said a police spokesman. Police have the man's charred trousers in custody.

I have been doing the washer-marathon today-the last load is in and I think it is #6. We are making sure everything is clean before being put away for the season. We are headed to a visitation and memorial service for a friend who was killed in a motorcyle accident Labor Day Weekend.

I will be back tomorrow morning to chat before heading to the stamp room to get caught up!

Good Morning Friends!

It’s Wednesday!
Make it a WONDERFUL Wednesday!


... ... ... ...

Today is Video Games Day
Defy Superstition Day,
National Chocolate Milkshake Day,
Fortune Cookie Day,
National Pet Memorial Day,
National Peanut Day,
Snack-a-Pickle Day,
Uncle Sam Day,
and Positive Thinking Day.



Enjoy your holiday of choice today!




Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that there are some mighty DUMB CRIMINALS!


In Rhode Island, cops were sure they had the right guy when the suspect in a string of coin-machine thefts paid his $400 bail entirely in quarters.




FYI – I have to be out of town ALL day tomorrow for a meeting four hours from my home
(lots of driving, taking minutes, exhausting kind of day)….
So there will be no Public Service Announcement tomorrow.
I’ll see you again on Friday.

Good Morning and Happy Thursday.
It is a cool morning in SE Wisconsin and we are to get a bit of rain today, so it is a perfect day to hibernate in the stamp room!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that things aren’t always as they seem!


Some Good News

The parachute company says you'll get a full refund.

They say the house didn't float very far at all.

The "National Enquirer" just loved those pictures of you at work.

Jerry Springer wants to surprise you on his show.

The reward for your capture has reached fifty thousand dollars.

The insurance pays the full book value ($312) for your 1956 T Bird.

The thieves left the push lawn mower and hedge trimmers.

Those Grand Juries always over-react. Don't worry about it.

The boss said while you're sick, he'd do all your work personally.

Hello--this is a late check in for me after cutting the grass this morning, running to the Post Office and Target and doing some house cleaning. I need to take some pictures of cards to upload to my blog and then we are off to Gurnee, IL for my great-nephew's football game.

Have a great rest of the day!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that not all medical advice is good!


During a follow up visit, the Doctor asks: “So have you taken my advice and slept with the window open?” to which the patient replied, “Yes.”

The Doctor is pleased with the patient’s response and asks: “Has your asthma disappeared completely?”

“No,” the patient replies. “But my watch, TV, Ipod and Laptop have!!!!!”
