Laugh-A-Bit with Tidbits

A southerner on vacation wanted to go ice fishing, so he stopped at the nearest pond of ice. He started cutting holes in the ice, and heard, "There are no fish under the ice." He got creeped out and started cutting another hole. Then he heard, "There are no fish under the ice." Then he asked, "Lord, is that you?" Then he heard, "No, this is the ice rink manager."

320.839.2542 Fax 888.669.1736 DECORATED APPAREL, VEHICLE GRAPHICS SIGNS, BANNERS AND MORE! Singer Sewing Machine

Q: I have inherited an old Singer sewing machine and wonder if it is worth keeping. -- Betty, North Port, Fla. A: There are millions of older Singer sewing machines tucked away in American homes. Because so many were made, they really aren't worth that much money as a collectible. Most of the treadle models that I've seen in antique shops and malls have been priced well below $200. For example, I spotted a Singer Model No. 15-30 from about 1910 for $175, a Singer Model 66 also from the same period for $195, and a Singer No. 27-4 in oak cabinet, $150. There are always exceptions to every rule. Check out for historical facts about the older machines. It is also an interactive website that invites Singer fans from across the country to share their personal stories and memories of this iconic machine. ••• Q: Is there anything you can tell me about a vase that I have. I can't find any markings on it. I have always been curious about it and would especially like to know its value and how old it is. -- Carol, Willmer, Minn. A: You have sent me a question that is impossible to answer. Even with the picture you sent, identifying the piece and determining its age would take a professional appraiser. I think your piece is probably from the 1950s or '60s, judging by its design, but that is only a guess. Having it appraised might cost more than the piece is worth. With that in mind, you might show it to antique dealers in your area for their opinions. ••• Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
