1 July 2012 – Amusements

I was dining in our Georgia town, when a tourist stopped by my table. “Excuse me,” he said. “My wife loves your sandals. Did you buy them somewhere locally?”

”Yes, just down the street,” I said.

“May I ask how much they cost?”

“They were $77.”

“Thank you.” He then hollered to his wife, “Honey, she got them in Florida!”


A truck driver is driving along on the freeway. A sign comes up that reads “Low Bridge Ahead.” Before he knows it, the bridge is right ahead of him and he gets stuck under it. Cars are backed up for miles.

Finally, a police car comes up. The cop gets out of his car and walks around to the truck driver, puts his hands on his hips and says, “Got stuck, huh?”

The truck driver says, “No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of gas.”


A nurse received a call from an anxious patient. “I’m diabetic and I’m afraid I’ve had too much sugar today.” the caller said.

“Are you light-headed?” the nurse asked.

“No,” the caller answered, “I’m a brunette.”

  1. Dear Greg and Penny,
    You are lucky to have barn swallows come to your home. We used to have them come to the White House at the Lake, but not in recent years. Could be because we have so many people when rentals start the end of June. However, they used to arrive at the house in early May, and have fledglings by mid to end of June. The poop was one thing, but I was always amused how they dive bombed us during their nesting period. They were beautiful as they swept over the Lake, catching insects to feed their young!
    Hated to leave the Lake again, but had a wonderful three weeks there. I come back to find three of my frequent dining friends are moving to smaller apts. in the same building. One will move next to me – an avid Gardner. We will share the porch (each has one,half), and I hope she has the energy to plant flower boxes. Life is relatively uneventful here in the retirement complex, but on the positive side, we are well taken care of.
    Am as angry as you about the outrageous greed of bankers who run their banks/ companies into the ground and then ask for bale-outs, because they are “to big to fail”, and then get hugh bonuses or compensations for their unethical behavior. xxx Bunny W.
