PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that Children Have an Interesting View of Things!


The students in my third-grade class were bombarding me with questions about my newly pierced ears.

"Does the hole go all the way through?" "Yes."

"Did it hurt?" "Just a little."

"Did they stick a needle through your ears?" "No, they used a special gun."

Silence followed, and then one solemn voice called out, "How far away did they stand?"

Checking in from Stamp Camp in Oga--it has been fun so far. We made 5 cards this morning in class and the rest of the day is open stamping. The demos have tons of supplies for us to use--a couple of Big Shots along with many things to use in them, many, many stamps, all punches and inks It should be a fun afternoon to work on swaps.

There had been a stabbing, and police were on the scene talking to a woman who had been a witness to the crime. A 38-year-old man jumped into the woman’s car and drove away! He was arrested the next day, easily identified by the cops who saw him steal the car.

Hello--Happy Sunday! I had a great day yesterday and completed 3 sets of swap cards and a fourth is about 3/4 done. All of the demos were so nice and it was wonderful to be able to use all of their supplies they bought--there were long tables on two walls in the conference room full of SU items. I will for sure attend again.

A sad time right now as I am watching the breaking news about a shooting at a temple in Oak Creek--just south of Milwaukee, about a half hour from me. How Tragic!

Good Morning Friends!

Okay, what happened to our weekend????
Sadness – it’s over already!

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

Today is Wiggle Your Toes Day,
National Root Beer Float Day,
Midsummer Day,
National Fresh Breath Day,
and Gossip Day.


Enjoy your holiday of choice today!
I think we should get a root beer float, sit a spell on this midsummer’s day with our shoes off so we can wiggle our toes freely, and gossip to our heart’s content. Oh, and of course, when we’re finished, we’ll want to brush our teeth to freshen our breath!



Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to Beware of Dumb Criminals!


A bungling burglar was disturbed while rifling through rooms in the house in Washington DC and jumped out of a window to escape. Police searched the house later and were surprised to find a cell phone, that didn't belong to anyone at the house, charging in a socket. Officers called one of the numbers in his contacts, told them the phone owner had been involved in an accident and asked for his name. That led to the 25 year old man being arrested and later charged with ten burglaries.

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to Beware of Dumb Criminals!


The two criminal masterminds planned their heist carefully. They knew the courier would have a suitcase full of cash. They waited for his car to pass, then pursued him at high speed, shooting at the vehicle until the courier was forced to pull over.

Armed robbers made off with what they thought was a suitcase full of cash - they were in for a surprise. Back at their secret hideout, the bandits prepared to force the locks and spring the cash. That's when they noticed their plan had gone horribly wrong; instead of taking the money, they made off with a first aid kit.

A police spokesman said, “If there was an award for the dumbest crooks they would certainly be in the running.”

A car thief who ran out of petrol in rush hour traffic was arrested after police helped him push the stolen vehicle to the side of the road. Helpful officers were about to leave the scene and let the stalled driver wait for breakdown services to arrive to assist him when they noticed the red 15 year old Volkswagen's lock was broken and a screwdriver was sticking out of the ignition. After checking the number plate, they discovered the vehicle had been stolen and that the man was wanted for a string of other motoring thefts. He admitted to stealing the car and this stupid criminal is now facing a prison term.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to Beware of Dumb Criminals!


A man who had spent 20 years in prison for bank robbery back in 1963 thought he would try again in 2003. He demanded and received several thousand dollars from two surprised bank cashiers and as he fled he spilled $100 notes in his wake as he attempted to stuff the cash into his pockets and get away.

When he reached his hired getaway car this stupid criminal realized that he had locked his keys inside. This bungling burglar promptly took to his heels and fled the scene on foot followed by two passersby who grabbed him. The fleeing felon attempted to pull out his gun but failed, and shot himself in his leg but kept fighting his would be arresters; one of whom shot the suspect.

The local police charged the robber with 8 felonies, including robbery and 2 counts of attempted murder. The suspect was attended to in hospital and recovered.

No, you couldn't make it up

A man went into a drug store in Baltimore, pulled a gun, announced a robbery, and pulled a "Hefty-bag" face mask over his head. He then realised that he'd forgotten to cut eyeholes in the mask. He was arrested by security men.

Good Morning--it is a bit of a late check in for me. I slept in a bit today, got packed for the trip to Nebraska, watered the flowers and vegetables longer than usual, did a little cleaning and finally got to SCS.

I am headed to a friend's house this afternoon as she had surgery on her shoulder on Monday--going to bring her a couple of pints of Culvers frozen custard as I am sure that will help in the healing. Then, when roomie gets home from work, we will head out to Nebraska. We will probably drive about half way and stay overnight somewhere in Iowa.

I am taking the laptop and will check in if I am able--otherwise I will not be back online until I get home next Tuesday afternoon.

Two men tried to pull the front off a cash machine by running a chain from the machine to the bumper of their pickup truck. Instead of pulling the front panel off the machine, though, they pulled the bumper off their truck. Scared, they left the scene and drove home... With the chain still attached to the machine... With their bumper still attached to the chain... With their vehicle's license plate still attached to the bumper. You couldn't make it up!

When a man attempted to siphon petrol from a motor home parked on a Seattle street, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find an ill man curled up next to a motor home trying to steal gasoline and plugged his hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake.

The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges, saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had.

Robbers broke into a cell-phone store recently with the aim of stealing some mobile phones. In their haste to get away they grabbed the first phones that came to hand - hollow replicas, used normally for display purposes only.

Employees explained that the bungling burglars overlooked real cell phones and cash in another part of the shop.

reminding us that Things Aren’t Always As They Seem!


After filling his car with gas, the man paid and drove away. He then realized that he had left the gas cap on top of his car. He stopped and looked and, sure enough, it was lost. Well, he thought for a second and realized that other people must have done the same thing, and that it was worth going back to look by the side of the road since even if he couldn't find his own gas cap, he might be able to find one that fit. Sure enough, he hadn't been searching long when he found a gas cap. He tried it on, and it went into place with a satisfying click.

"Great," he thought, "I lost my gas cap, but I found another one that fits. And this one's even better because it locks..."

Good Morning Ladies--Happy Wednesday. We are home--and it is good to be home.............. We stayed Monday night with college friend that roomie and I both knew--great log house with a pond in the country south of Iowa City. We left around 10 and got home around 5:00. I am heading out to cut the grass and then I hope to get to the craft room to get all inky! Plus, when the mail comes, I am sure to have quite a few swap packages to go through and organize.

I hope you have a mojo-filled day!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that things Aren’t Always Exactly As They Seem!


Walking through the hallways at the middle school where I work, I saw a new substitute teacher standing outside his classroom with his forehead against a locker. I heard him mutter, "How did you get yourself into this?"

Knowing that he was assigned to a difficult class, I tried to offer moral support. "Are you okay?" I asked. "Can I help?"

He lifted his head and replied, "I'll be fine as soon as I get this kid out of his locker."

Good Morning Ladies--we are getting a nice rain this morning--it has been raining and storming for a couple of hours and the way the radar looks, it will be going on for awhile. AND, that is OK. It is a nice, slow rain and all of the plants are smiling right now!

I plan to get organized with all of the swap cards that have come in the past week--record them, sort the packages into the correct bin, take pictures of the cards and upload them to the swap album. I hope to work on making some cards today and I have stamp club tonight. Lots of fun is planned for today!

I hope you have a Tremendous Thursday!

I am sure I can work something out. If you sign up for the three spots that you usually take to get a prize, (Carol takes 4 spots), then I will double the prizes earned.

Hi everyone,
I have been MIA, but I've been busy.
Here it goes.
It started two weeks ago, the last visit from the bee keeper, then I had to wait on the
Townhome Association to come out and recaulk everything. So, that took two visits.

Then, my next wildlife adventure started. I thought I saw a mouse in my garage, so I called Orkin, who came out and said no mice. However, he saw a little critter come out the ground and he said I had moles. So, Orkin, do not get rid of moles.

Now, I must tell you, I'm petrified of mice, sooooooooooooo, I haven't been in my garage since the end of June. What can I say.

I thought I could get rid of them, safely. Of course, I researched, went to Ace, HOme Dept, etc. HOwever, I started seeing more of them and I saw tracks across my little lawn. Sooooo, I finally called the Village and they provided me name of companies. Soooooooo, after three weeks, I discoverd I had an infestation of VOLES, not moles. I don't care voles, moles, mice, they all look alike.

So, after 3 weeks, of the Wildlife Habitant visits,(they set up a million traps (12 traps), they have four more visits.

In the interim, I decided to purchase new carpet, and laminate floor for my little corner of my dining area, (I mean little). So after visiting six carpet stores, etc. Complained to BBB, on one company. I decided on a MA and Pa store, and they are in the process of putting my carpet in today and tomorrow.

So, Hi everyone.
Joan

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that things Aren’t Always Exactly As They Seem!


"Grandpa, I'm really proud of you," said his young granddaughter.

"What's to be proud of?" asked the old man.

The young lady replied, "I noticed that when you sneeze, you've learned to put your hand in front of your mouth."

"Of course," explained Grandpa. "How else can I catch my teeth???"





FYI – I won’t be here tomorrow with a PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT. I’m leaving early in the morning… heading toward St. Louis for a Stamp Expo. Woo Hoo!!! Shopping Therapy!

Barb, since this swap is technically over and you're just holding my cards for the 'hood ones... I'm going to go ahead and unsub here (I'm assuming most everyone else already have unsubbed). I will let you know in the 'hood when these cards get here.

It's always fun being in your WS/PB swaps!!!
