Jimbo says to Uncle Andy, "I'll send my dog out to see if there are any ducks out in the pond. If there aren't any ducks out there, I'm not going hunting." Bella comes back and barks twice. Jimbo says, "Well I'm not going to go out. She only saw two ducks out there." Uncle Andy says, "You're going to take the dog's barks for the truth?" Uncle Andy doesn't believe it, so he goes to look for himself. When he gets back he says, "I don't believe it where did you get that dog? There really are only two ducks out there!" Jimbo says, "Well, I got her from the breeder up the road. If you want, you can get one from him, too." Uncle Andy goes to the breeder and says he wants a dog like the one his friend Jimbo has. The breeder obliges and Uncle Andy brings the dog home, tells it to go out and look for ducks. Minutes later the dog returns with a stick in it's mouth and starts whacking Uncle Andy.

Outraged, Uncle Andy takes the dog back to the breeder and says, "This dog is a fraud. I want my money back!" The breeder asks Uncle Andy what the dog did. Uncle Andy tells him that when he sent the dog out to look for ducks, it came back with a stick in its mouth, shaking it around and hitting him with it!. The breeder says, "Uncle Andy, all he was trying to tell you was that there are more ducks out there than you can shake a stick at!"

The Four Cats Submitted by Thomas Hill Four men were bragging about how smart their cats were. The first man was an Engineer, the second an Accountant, the third a Chemist and the fourth man was a Government Employee. To show off, the Engineer called his cat, “Tsquare, do your stuff.” T-square pranced over to the desk, took out some paper and pen and promptly drew a circle, a square, and a triangle. Everyone agreed that was pretty smart. But the Accountant said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, “Spreadsheet, do your stuff.” Spreadsheet went out to the kitchen and returned with a dozen cookies. He divided them into four equal piles of three cookies. Everyone agreed that was good. But the Chemist said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, “Measure, do your thing.” Measure got up, walked to the fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a 10 ounce glass from the cupboard and poured exactly 8oz. without spilling a drop (continued on next page) Mon.-Thurs. 7am-5pm Fri. 8am-4pm Yen-Chang Chen, D.M.D. Dr. Chen and his staff are dedicated to providing a pleasant, stress-free visit with results that you will be proud to show off. 730 Center St • Auburn (Big Lots) Plaza Visit us at our newly renovated state of the art office at: 783-1351 Same Day Emergency Care We are a preferred Northeast Delta provider auburnplazafamilydentistry.com Too small for the role of Pistachio, not curly enough to be a Cashew...The Almond.

He drank the milk ate the cookies, and then beat up the other three cats. Later he claimed he injured his back while doing so, so he filed a grievance report for unsafe working conditions, put in for Workers Compensation and went home for the rest of the day on sick leave.

Nicklaus turns to Wonder and says, "How is the singing career going?" Stevie Wonder says, "Not too bad, the latest album has gone into the top 10, so all in all I think it is pretty good. By the way how is the golf." Nicklaus replies: "Not too bad, I am not winning as much as I used to but I'm still making a bit of money. I have some problems with my swing but I think I've got that right now." "I always find that when my swing goes wrong I need to stop playing for a while and think about it, then the next time I play it seems to be all right," says Stevie. "You play golf!?" asks Jack. Stevie says, "Yes, I have been playing for years." "But I thought you were blind; how can you play golf if you are blind?" Jack asks."

I was restless at first because you get to stay in bed till nearly 6 am. But I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing. Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there’s warm water. Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food, but tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee.

Many Hands Make Light Work A Request for YOUR Help We are GROWING and so is our need for more Board Members! We are coming to our supporters with a great need. As many of you already know, a board of directors is crucial to a non-profit agency. The success or failure of Habitat is significantly due to our volunteers. Without a board of directors, there will be no Habitat in Androscoggin or Oxford County for people to volunteer with. We have been blessed with a very hard working, but extremely small, group of individuals. Those individuals need some assistance in order for us to thrive and grow in Androscoggin and Oxford Counties. We have to get more individuals involved on a basic and ground level, or better known as the board of directors. Our current board wants to ensure that Habitat can successfully support the members and families of Androscoggin and Oxford Counties. WE CAN NOT DO THAT WITHOUT YOUR HELP!! New board members don’t have to be on the nuts-and-bolts of home construction (though they certainly can if they wish). We are looking for new board members who can meet monthly to help guide our overall efforts for AHFH, and help attract the people and energy we need to ensure a vibrant, sustainable future for the families we serve. We are looking for individuals who care about the housing needs of low income families, and about making our community a better place for these hard-working men, women and children. You might be a teacher, a student, a business owner or vendor, a corporate officer, a stay-at-home mom or a retiree. It doesn't matter what you do for a living, what matters is what you are willing to give back to your community. We hope for diversity of experience to help make us stronger. Would you be willing to help? Or do you know someone who would be a good addition to the Habitat Board? We appreciate all referrals! If you have any questions, or would like to express interest, please call or write Kim Veilleux at Androhabitat@roadrunner.com or 786-2598. harden us. If he thinks so, it’s not my place to tell him different. A “route march” is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks.

An owner at a local club was so sure that his bouncer was the strongest man around that he offered a standing $1,000 bet that no could beat him. The challenge was that the bouncer would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran out into a glass. He would then hand the lemon to the customer, and the first one who could squeeze even one more drop out of the lemon would win the money. Over the years many people had tried this, truck drivers, weight lifters, karate masters, and all had failed. Then one day this geeky little fella with heavy black rimmed glasses came into the bar and asked if he could try the challenge. After the laughter had subsided the club owner said that it was only fair that the man be given a chance at the bet, so the bouncer picked up a lemon and started squeezing. Once he was done, he handed the remains to the little man who promptly squeezed out 4 more drops of juice into the glass.

The strong young man at the construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of one of the older workmen. After several minutes, the older worker had had enough. “Why don’t you put your money where your mouth is,” he said. “I will bet a week’s wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you won’t be able to wheel back.” “You’re on, old man,” the braggart replied. “Let’s see what you got.” The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, “all right, get in.” A Maine Tradition You Can Count On! Being the soup, chowder & salad guy is cool.

Cussing Deacon Submitted by Jimbo Out ’n About at the L-A Harley Chili Cook-off A preacher had a deacon in his church who had a bad habit of cussing. In his attempt to help the deacon overcome this terrible habit, the preacher decided he should spend some personal time with him. So, he invited him to go fishing. They were both out in a boat and had their lines in the water when the preacher hooked a big one. He worked it for a long time and finally got the fish up to the edge of the boat when the line broke and the fish got away. Thoroughly disgusted, the preacher looked over and said, “Deacon, something needs to be said!” Daddy, we want to go for a ride! We’re serious, Daddy!! L-A Harley has the best customer service!

The first full moon to occur on the winter solstice, Dec. 22, commonly called the first day of winter, happened in 1999. Since a full moon on the winter solstice occurred in conjunction with a lunar perigee (point in the moon's orbit that is closest to Earth), the moon appeared about 14% larger than it does at apogee (the point in it's elliptical orbit that is farthest from the Earth). Since the Earth is also several million miles closer to the sun at that time of the year than in the summer, sunlight striking the moon was about 7% stronger making it brighter. Also, this was the closest perigee of the Moon of the year since the moon's orbit is constantly deforming. In places where the weather was clear and there was a snow cover, even car headlights were superfluous. Did you hear about these new reversible jackets? I'm excited to see how they turn out.

It may seem obvious that your child's teeth allow them to eat and smile, but did you know that baby teeth are also essential for language and permanent tooth development? Teeth help our lips and tongue make sounds properly and this learning occurs while your child still has baby teeth. Amazingly, baby teeth also help guide permanent teeth into position, keeping them from growing in crooked. This is why Center Street Dental is excited to be celebrating National Children's Dental Health Month in February. We will be visiting schools and talking to the kids about the importance of brushing, flossing, eating healthy, and visiting the dentist. Unfortunately, dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease, with more than 16 million kids suffering from tooth decay in the U.S. (American Dental Association). So keep in mind, it's very important for your child to be introduced to the dentist early to protect their tiny but important teeth!
