Need a laugh?

leonap's picture

This has been around before but good enough for a repeat.

Jennifer and Jim kept getting huge water bills. They knew beyond ####doubt that the bills weren't representative of their actual usage, and
no matter how they tried to conserve, the high bills continued. Although
they could see nothing wrong, they had everything checked for leaks or
problems: the water meter, outdoor pipes, indoor pipes, underground
pipes, faucets, toilets, washer, ice maker, etc., all to no avail.

One day Jim was sick and stayed home in bed, but kept hearing water
running downstairs. He finally got out of his sick bed to investigate,
and stumbled onto the cause of the bills. Apparently this was happening
all day long when they were not at home. Knowing that few would believe
him, he taped a segment of the 'problem' for posterity: Click on the

Was it you that has the 90 ft. well? I know I have enough water problems as it is with our well.

A good reason not to have indoor pets, IMHO.

You can't stay in your corner of the forest, waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.

There's a difference between not liking pets and thinking they should be left outside.  If you don't like animals, then don't have any.  :-)

Ok, I'll give you a pass on that one.


Here, have a beer.   Forgiven?  :-)

Yeah, you're forgiven - I'm a soft touch.

But I don't like beer, so I'll pass on that one. I hope that's not as big of an issue with you as the pets thing.

No, not at all. I actually don't like beer anymore.  Drank too much of it in my youth.  :-)

I never did try it. Since I was courtin' a lady I wanted to be on my best behaviour.

Trust me, that stuff was FIIIIIIINNNNNNNEEEEEE. I could easily have had 3 or 4 glasses without realizing what I was drinking. Didn't taste alcoholicky (is that even a word) at all!

Still flurries & we are going down to the teens. Denial is NOT helping.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with parsley sauce, goat cheese garlic mashed potatoes, Galena Cellars Niagra grape wine & Pie Boss's apple crumble topped with Ruth & Phil's sour cream/cinnamon ice cream.

Boss, is that really you?

So it's out of the tavern and into the kitchen, eh? :)

Yup - It's really me. I got booted from BT and have been hanging with the cooks:

So far it's been a lot of fun. Except for a couple of trouble makers who want to "fix" me.

Yeah, I know women. (As well as any man ever does, I guess)

Just last night I was talking to someone from BT by phone, and we were talking about me hanging out over here. Somehow the conversation turned to dating advice, and if I should ask y'all anything about my current dating situation or not.

I don't know if I have the courage to do that. Y'all might have a field day with it.

But, we love to give advice.  As I've often said, I knew all there was to know about marriage until I became a wife.  I knew all there was to know about parenting until I became a mother.  Since it's been almost 45 years since I've dated, surely I know enough about that to give you advice, LOL.

"I knew all there was to know about marriage until I became a wife. I knew all there was to know about parenting until I became a mother."

Funny you should say that. I have a busy body Sister who considers herself an expert on marriage, relationships, and child rearing. But she's never been married, never had kids, and has never even had a serious relationship.

So I have pretty much always ignored her. Although she did eventually admit that I had done a good job of raising my Sons.

(-:

As for the dating advice - Who knows - It could be fun. Maybe I'll try it on ONE issue and see what happens. If it gets too rough I guess I can always bail out and go over to the gardening message board.

I gave you an answer.  Not sure it is the one you want to hear, but it's my answer, anyway.  Yes, your busybody sister sounds a lot like me before I knew what I was talking about.  Amazing how brilliant we are until we are confronted with reality!
