I can verify that that was an actual conversation.  The principals were filmed, too, but not shown to protect the non-innocent.

Jerry, I'm not sure what to say about that one.  Give me a few minutes.  We're in Denver -- went WAY past Detroit. :-D  That's all the way and then some. . .

Bill and Bob, two not so bright guys were asked to measure the height of the flag pole.

Bill grabbed one end of the tape measure and gave the other end to Bob and told him to climb up. As much as he tried, he could only get half way before he slid back down.

They traded ends and Bill tried to climb up. He did no better.

Sam comes along and notices their difficulty. He tells them to pull the flag pole out and lay it on the ground. Sam walks off.

Bill says to Bob, "That idiot. We were told to measure the height, not the length."
Well, it used to be Los Angeles . . . 50 miles north of Fresno now.
Just remember . . . It isn't life or death.
It's bigger than life or death! It's RACING.

The police came to my neighbor's front door last night holding a picture of his wife, then asked "is this your wife sir?".

Shocked he answered, " Yes!".

They said "I'm afraid it looks like she's been hit by a bus".

He said "I know, but she has a lovely personality and she's good with the dog."

No doubt -- that fellow has the accent down just right.  The background scenery got me all fired up to go for a walk out in the woods behind out house.  A summer day (or winter, or fall or spring) out in the woods in the UP is something too good for most of the rest of the world.  Stay home - let us enjoy our own stuff, hey?

When I was in Hoton (Michigan Tech to those of you that don't know the background) I did spend a winter driving taxi* on the crack o' dawn shift.  I can identify with Dave.

*Okay - quick note here:  Houghton/Hancock (Houghton is the home of Michigan Technological University, my alma mater and Walt's school these days) is the metro (what a laugh!) area there -- a pair of towns, one on either side of the Portage Canal waterway.  "On either side" -- good phrase, because both towns have STEEP hills leading down to the water.  Did I give the impression to you - that the hills are steep?  Not insurmountable, but pretty steep.  The area gets 250 - 350 inches of snow per winter -- a product of having Lake Superior on about three and a half sides of the area (look at a map of the Keweenaw Peninsula.  It's the part of the U P that sticks out into Lake Superior).  So -- take STEEP hills, add LOTS of snow every day (one winter when I was there we received measurable snowfall 54 days in a row -- new record! :cheers:).  To that snow and steep hills add 5AM -- when the snowplows were just getting started.  Steep, snowy, unplowed.  The taxis in the "fleet" (there were two cars at Jerry's Taxi Co.) were late-60s Plymouth four-doors - slant-six engine, three speed on the column, walnut shell snow tires REAR WHEEL DRIVE.

And some of you wonder why the prospect of driving on a road with an overnight snowfall of six or 8 inches doesn't cause me a moment's concern?

Thanks for the video, Walt.

Siamese twins walk into a pub in Canada and  park themselves on a barstool.
One of them says to  the bartender, 'Don't mind us; we're joined at  the hip. I'm John, he's  Jim. Two Molson Canadian beers, draft please.'
The  bartender, feeling slightly awkward, tries to make polite conversation while pouring the beers.
'Been on holiday yet,  lads?'
 'Off to England next month,' says John. 'We  go to England every  year,  rent a car and drive for miles. Don't we, Jim?'
 Jim agrees.
'Ah, England !' says the bartender.  'Wonderful country... the  history,  the beer, the  culture...'
 'Nah, we don't like that British crap,'  says John.
 'Hamburgers & Molsons beer, that's  us, eh Jim? And we can't stand  the English --- they're so arrogant and  rude.'
 'So why keep going to England ?' asks the  bartender.
 'Ah, It's the only chance Jim gets to  drive.'

so, at my place right now she said...." hmmm, golf humour"....then she said..."is that as good as it gets this week?"
