A little more serious.
« on: March 17, 2009, 07:48:34 PM »
Hi guys!

I need to ask a HUGE favor - I have some friends who are
camping their way around the world and they have asked
me if I had any contacts where they could stay without
spending too much money.
I said I would ask around for places, but just in case
you feel it might be a bit of an imposition (them
staying with you), they do have all their own camping
gear and won't require much place to set up (maybe in
your yard or a spare room)...
They're great people and good company (and very easy to
please). I gave them your name and address anyway, and
hope you feel that it's not too much of a bother. Please
don't feel obligated. I'm sure they'll understand.
Thanks guys!!!!

PS: Attached is a photo of them in case they arrive
unannounced.


Thanks Sheri Buchta

They left Utah and headed to Modesto Calif. They didn't like Utah because it's desert looked like they were back home and the Polygamy crowd won't let them in their compounds. Enjoy the company Willie. :cheers:

Well, at least they bought their food with them.



It's always bad when they bring their cousins unannounced.



And they are in SUCH a hurry to unload.



Then they show up and want to plug in the computer.



I told them they had to use ERC as the fuel supplier, but NOOO they didn't listen.



I ask them what would happen if the truck broke down. They said they had spares.



Even when the truck isn't overloaded, there are always the ones that hang on.



So I told them "Next year take the train!"

Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.

Floyd - I remember that hauler.  It was bought in the late 50's by Carl Weinerberger, who was a fantastic fiberglass body guy in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and a part-time sausage maker.  He bought it, and kept the stock frame, but did some modifications to the body.  For years, he unsuccessfully campaigned it in off-road ice racing events throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota, and the U.P.

What's a part-time Sausage ? Is this another old guy Viagra slight ? Is Weinerberger related to Jon SSS our Webholder, or Freiburger our HotRod holder ?
I remember that truck with the hangers-on girls, I followed it across I-80 towards Wendover last year so close my mileage increased by 97% I was sooooo close. I did miss the exit for B'Ville, a little anyway, got off in Sacramento.
Ah yes, Sacramento, spent a weekend there one night.

I doubt it - Carl was one of the Sheboygan Weinerbergers, who came over to this country in steerage.  Jon only rolls first-class.

*Rrriiiiinnnnggg, rrriiiinnnngg,**


**'Hello?'*
 

**'Hi honey.**
**This is Daddy.**
**Is Mommy near the phone?'**



**'No, Daddy.**
**She's upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Paul.'**



**After a brief pause,**


**Daddy says,**
**'But honey, you haven't got an Uncle Paul.'**


**'Oh yes I do, and he's upstairs in the room with Mommy,**
**Right now.'**


******Brief Pause******



**'Uh, okay then, this is what I want you to do.**
**Put the phone down on the table, run upstairs**
**And knock on the bedroom door and shout to Mommy**
**That: Daddy's car just pulled into the driveway.'**
 


**'Okay, Daddy, Just a minute.'**


 
**A few minutes later**
**The little girl comes back to the phone.**
 

**'I did it, Daddy.'**

 
**'And what happened, honey?' **

"Well, Mommy got all scared, jumped out of bed With no clothes on and ran around screaming."**



**Then she tripped over the rug, hit her head on the dresser**
**And now she isn't moving at all!'**



**'Oh my God!!!  What about your Uncle Paul?'**



**'He jumped out of the bed with no clothes on, too.**


**He was all scared and he jumped out of the back window**
**And into the swimming pool.**
**But I guess he didn't know that you took out the water**
**Last week to clean it.**


**He hit the bottom of the pool and I think he's dead.'**



*****Long Pause*****



*****Longer Pause*****




*****Even Longer Pause*****



**Then Daddy says,**



**'Swimming pool?  ...........**


 
**Is this 486-5731?'*


 
**No, I think you have the wrong number.......*

Another train joke - no mystery this time
« Reply #10 on: March 22, 2009, 02:13:26 PM »
A man and woman who had never met before, but who were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a trans-continental train.

Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper berth and she in the lower.

At 1:00 A.M., the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying,     
 
“Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold.”

“I have a better idea,' she replied 'Just for tonight, let's pretend that we're married.”

“Wow! That's a great idea!” he exclaimed.

“Good,” she replied. “Get your own f---ing blanket.”

After a moment of silence, he farted.
