Back tomorrow~

Too much sun...should I be saying too much fun? Well, the birthday party was fun, but sun has me laid low...back tomorrow! In the mean time for your enjoyment:



HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD AND DON'T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.
George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi was going up to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things. He phoned the police, who asked 'Is someone in your house,' and he said 'no.' Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available. George said, 'Okay,' hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again. 'Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot them.' Then he hung up. Within five minutes six police cars, a SWAT Team, a helicopter, two fire trucks, a paramedic and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence and caught the burglars red-handed. One of the Policemen said to George: 'I thought you said that you'd shot them!' George said, 'I thought you said there was nobody available!'
(True Story) I LOVE IT - Don't mess with old people.

I wondered if you meant you had a sunburn or were just tired from the heat. It really exhausts me to be out in it especially getting in and out of the car when shopping. I think it is hotter around all that pavement.

I love the last post. He got the job done alright and what quick thinking.,

And as for Maxine: I like the last one best: prozac, coffee and the computer. Skip the cigs, though.
