Since The Price Of Stamps Is Going Up, Let's Use A Picture Of An Ex-President !

The post office is asking for a rate increase and although they always seem to be losing money, I'm ok with the increase. I'd hate to see the U.S. Mail as I know it to be replaced. It has been suggested that a private company could do a better job but I'm tired of watching private companies take over some government offices and jobs only to strip it, financially rape it and move on.

On a lighter note, how would I receive my valuable junk mail and flyers? Imagine the discomfort of many bird and other pet owners if they had nothing to line the cages with. Who's going to retrain the letter carriers on how to stuff four pounds of mail into my very tiny mailbox?

On the other hand, will the new letter carriers take the time to know their customers and kindly deliver special boxes and mail directly to your front door? I support my local letter carrier and I support the U.S. Mail. If President Obozo and can't control BP or stop the gulf oil disaster, I certainly don't want him screwing with my mail.

The News As I See It: Lindsay Lohan is going to jail. I think it's a good idea! Some of these little ass-wipes who've been lucky enough to become popular and make huge amounts of money seem to have total disregard for the law. I really believe they think they're above the law. We'll see what song she sings after 90 days in the pokie with those big mean women who just adore young girls.

The U.S. government is saying that Arizona’s immigration law is unconstitutional. Legally, there’s only two entities that can determine who can come and work in this country, and that’s Home Depot and WalMart. The new immigration law was supposed to go into effect already, but it was delayed. They would have had to cancel next week’s all-star baseball game.

Vice President Joe O'Biden made a surprise visit to Iraq. It was a surprise for O'Biden because he thought he was going to Des Moines for a fundraiser.

This Date In History: 1816; Argentina formally declared independence from Spain. 1850; Zachary Taylor, the 12th president of the U.S., died after only 16 months in office. 1872; The doughnut cutter was patented by John F. Blondel of Thomaston, Me. 1896; William Jennings Bryan delivered his "cross of gold" speech at the Democratic National Convention.

1900; The British Parliament proclaimed that as of Jan. 1, 1901, the six Australian colonies would be united at the Commonwealth of Australia. 1974; Former U.S. chief justice Earl Warren died in Washington, DC. 1997; Boxer Mike Tyson was temporarily banned from boxing for biting Evander Holyfield's ear. 2002; Baseball's All-Star Game ended in a tie after 11 innings. Both sides had run out of pitchers.

Picture Of The Day: The nomination of picture of the day comes from my subconscious and my teen years when I had begun tp appreciate women but did not appreciate broccoli. As an adult, I find broccoli to be a very special dish and I prepare it several different ways.

Although the picture contains no broccoli, the trees reminded me of the vegetable. It dawned on me that this picture would be a great tool to induce teenage boys to eat their broccoli. I mean, a sexy woman in a beautiful picture and the slight hint of broccoli in the background? What more could a kid ask for?

In other news, Jail time for Lindsay Lohan? Lebron's going to the Miami Heat and a democratic idea for the new, more expensive postage stamp.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges. 2) To me, boxing is like a ballet, except there's no music, no choreography, and the dancers hit each other. 3) Broken promises don't upset me. I just think, why did they believe me? 4) If there is H2O on the inside of a fire hydrant is there K9P on the outside? 5) When I was a baby, I kept a diary. Recently, I was rereading it. It said, "Day 1 -- Still tired from the move. Day 2 -- Everybody talks to me like I'm an idiot.".....and that's five !

Birthdays: Ann Radcliffe, novelist 1764, Elias Howe, inventor 1819, Nikola Tesla, electrical engineer, inventor 1856, Dorothy Thompson, journalist 1893, Donald H. Rumsfeld, secretary of Defense 1932, David Hockney, artist 1937, Tom Hanks, actor 1956.

This Just In: Satellite picture of the Gulf oil spill.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar and Grill: Signs Your Grandparents Are Still Sexually Active: 1) Pair of edible Depends found on bedroom floor. 2) Lately, at night, they put their teeth in the same glass. 3) Grandpa grabs his crotch and complains loudly of "denture-burn." 4) Not only do you hear the bed squeaking but also joints. 5) Granny found cuffed to her walker. 6) Grandmother starts baking Viagra-chip cookies. 7) Kraft-matic Adjustable Bed set for "doggy style 8) Grandma regularly looks at Grandpa's crotch and claps twice.

Upon hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, Katie went straight to her grandparent's house to visit her 95 year old grandmother and comfort her. When she asked how her grandfather had died, her grandmother replied. Grandma said, "He had a heart attack while we were making love on Sunday morning." Horrified, Katie told her grandmother that two people nearly 100 years old having sex would be asking for trouble.

Granny said, "Oh, no, my dear, many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice and slow and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the Ding and out on the Dong." She paused to wipe away a tear, and continued, "and if the damned ice cream truck hadn't come along, he'd still be alive today."

Breaking News: They're changing Wonder Woman's costume so I thought I'd enter my choice for the new costume.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: One morning a blonde called her friend and said, "Please come over and help me. I bought this killer jigsaw puzzle, but I can't figure out how to start it." Her friend asks, "What is it a puzzle of?" The blonde says, "From the picture on the box, it's a tiger."

The blonde's friend figures that he's pretty good at puzzles, so he heads over to help her out. The blonde has the puzzle spread out all over the table. He studies the pieces for a moment, then studies the box. He then says, "First, no matter what I do, I cannot show you how to assemble these to look like that picture of a tiger. Second, I'd advise you to relax, have a cup of coffee, and put all these Frosted Flakes back in the box."

Two women, a blonde and a redhead, are walking down the street and pass a flower shop where the redhead happens to see her boyfriend buying flowers. She sighs and says, "Oh, crap, my boyfriend is buying me flowers again." The blonde looks quizzically at her and says, "You don't like getting flowers?" The redhead says, "I love getting flowers, but he always has expectations after giving me flowers, and I just don't feel like spending the next three days on my back with my legs in the air." The blonde says, "Don't you have a vase?"

A man was shopping for stereo equipment and after finding something he liked, the salesman said, "I can let you have this top-of-the-line stereo for nine hundred dollars, minus six percent for cash." The man, unable to figure the calculation, said he would think about the deal and return the next day. That evening, the fellow asked his blonde female friend, "If you were offered nine hundred dollars minus six percent, how much would you take off?" She replied, "Everything but my earrings!"

A blonde woman competed with a brunette woman and a redheaded woman in the Breast Stroke division of an English Channel swim competition. The brunette came in first, the redhead second. The blonde woman finally reached shore completely exhausted. After being revived with blankets and coffee she remarked, "I don't want to complain, but I think those other two girls used their arms."

That's it for today my little foxes. Remember, everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time. I'm not too sure about AREA 51 tonight. I stayed out way too late Wednesday night. Have a great weekend and more on Monday.

Stay Tuned !

Too funny had to share some of those jokes!

Paula said...

The highlight of my day is when the mail is delivered. I don't care if that is a sign of old age either. Like the blonde jokes.

The thing about Arizona's immigration law, other than it's a carbon copy of existing Federal law, is that over 100,000 illegals have already left. And the law doesn't take effect until the 29th!

I just wish they'd stop Saturday home delivery. That way it would save $$ and you could go away for the weekend & not worry about your mail laying in your mailbox. But let's keep our mailpeople. Mine (Bob)(not the Bob I hang out with) even pulls in my driveway & brings the mail to my door when the weather is really nasty. He's a great guy. A little cooler here today but still about 80* outside & 85* in the house. Linda in WA

Have a nice weekend !

I couldn't imagine the post office going private. I rarely mail things anyway, so I am not bothered by the increase.

I am glad that Lindsay Lohan finally gets to pay her debt to society. Not an ounce of sympathy for her.

I would hate to see the post office leave also, just wish it was cheaper to mail packages, I might still be in business.
