Feeling a bit of the winter blues coming on and an itch to get out of the house and just do something fun? May I suggest a stop out to The Edge Pub & Eatery on Lake Wissota located at 9504 County Hwy S in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Not only do they have great food and drinks but a wonderful view of beautiful Lake Wissota as well.

The Edge Pub & Eatery was bought by Al Grube, after a Sheriff's sale in 2009. Al grew up in Abbotsford, WI and lived above the bowling alley his parents owned and operated called Duke's Bowl. When Al graduated from Abbotsford High School with honors he went on to college at Steven's Point for Natural Resources and General Studies but found he was better suited to the bar and restaurant business and soon opened the Tomahawk Bowl with his brother when he was only 23 years of age and his brother 21. For the first two to three years in this establishment Al and his brother did everything from clean up to shut down daily, ordering, bartending, serving and

the paperwork that goes along with owning your own business and then hired their first bartender two years later. Al sold his share in the bowling alley to his brother in 1980, bought a boat and sailed around the islands of the Bahamas for about five years before getting bored and wanting to 'get off the boat' to return to the bar and restaurant business which is in his blood apparently. Al had a couple of friends who lived in Eau Claire at the time whom he came to visit. He didn't know at the time what he was going to do next but liked the Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls area when he ran across the Wissota View on Lake Wissota, Chippewa Falls and heard it was for sale. Al bought the Wissota View in 1986 and renamed the bar The View and had not known what a popular place that location was going to be but should have known because it was right on small Lake Wissota and just minutes from Hwy 29 and downtown Chippewa Falls. It took Al all of 45 days to remodel and open this establishment for business which one day he just took an old sheet of plywood and wrote on it 'Open' and put it out by the road even though construction was still in process. "In under two hours I had them three-deep at the bar, and I

said, 'Man, what have I got into?' It was sort of a sleeping giant." Al then bought the Lake Aire Motel in 2002, remodeled it and then renamed it the Wissota Inn and then converted it to condos in 2007. After 21 years in the bar business he thought he was retiring from the bar/restaurant business when he sold The View in 2007 until he found himself at the afore mentioned sheriff's auction and ended up buying The Edge Pub & Eatery in December of 2009 which had previously been known as Native Bay. Native Bay had been owned by an investment group which had closed down for about a year and a half before Al bought it. Before Native Bay the establishment had previously been known as The Docks, more notably as The Water's Edge and was actually built as a supper club in the 50's by Louie Le Que who had named it Louie Le Que's Supper Club. Al renamed the establishment to The Edge as he would not only be open for dinners but lunches as well. Join Al and his great staff for a nautically marine atmosphere and salty humor, mixed in with Frank Lloyd Wright decor.

The establishment is surrounded by windows of which you can look out across the bay of

beautiful Lake Wissota and feel the touch of sun on your skin as you enjoy a quaint and relaxing dining experience in the dining room or enjoy a refreshing drink in their cozy bar or out on one of Al's large decks in the summer.

The Edge Pub and Eatery bar seats approximately 60 guests while the dining room seats 125. There is also a side banquet area that seats about 35 guests and the upper and lower outside decks over-looking the water hold 30 tables for your summertime enjoyment with an inside tiki bar area offered for private. The Edge also offers 72 marine slips,

pontoon rentals, and marine gas for summertime boating enthusiasts along with a beautiful black limo that he bought in 2017 that Al says if you 'Dine With Us.. You Ride With Us.. In Style offered 365 days a year. This is a free service to any and all who want a safe ride to and from The Edge within 15 miles of Chippewa Falls. (Continued on page 13)

Dear Ms. Baker, I received a call back from you on December 5th, 2017, reguarding the info I had requested previously (on the cost of a subscription to the Grub & Pub Report). When you referenced the cost of the subscription I declined. The more I thought about it, I have decided the opposite. In the day in age, and my passion for writing myself, I so enjoyed reading the small town local paper. We are so overwhelmed with negative and dismal news nowadays, whether it be political, sexual harassment, murder, its so refreshing to read this paper. I look forward to it!! Keep it up!!It’s fun to laugh!!! Sincerely, Annette H. Thank you Annette for your nice letter. I am so glad that you have found enough enjoyment in my little paper here to want to keep it coming to you each month in a monthly subscription. I also thank you for your kind words and you hit the nail on the head... it is because of all the

FACTS ABOUT OHIO The history of Ohio includes many thousands of years of human activity. What is now Ohio was probably first settled by Paleo-Indian people, who lived in the area as early as 13,000 B.C. A fossil dated between 11,727 and 11,424 B.C. indicates they hunted large animals, including Jefferson's ground sloth, using stone tools. Ohio is the 34th largest, the 7th most populous, and the 10th most densely populated of the 50 United States. The state's capital and largest city is Columbus. The name "Ohio" originated from Iroquois word ohi-yo’, meaning "great river" or "large creek". The state, originally partitioned from the Northwest Territory, was admitted to the Union as the 17th state on March 1, 1803. *Check out Richard’s story everyone Although there are conflicting in last months January 2018 issue!! narratives regarding the origin of

Ohio is a third larger than Scotland, stretches northward from the Ohio River to Lake Erie, between Pennsylvania and Indiana. It consists of level and undulating plains, on which are raised enormous crops of wheat and maize. Sheep-grazing and cattle-rearing are very extensive; its wool-clip is the largest in America. There are valuable deposits of limestone and freestone, and in output of coal Ohio ranks third of the States. The manufactures are very important; it ranks first in farm implements, and produces also wagons, textile fabrics, and liquors. In the N. excellent fruit is grown. The capital is Columbus, the

largest city is Cincinnati . Admitted to the Union in 1803, it boasts among its sons four Presidents—Grant, Hayes, Garfield, and Benjamin Harrison. Admission to Statehood:Ohio didn't officially become a state until 1953. It was declared a state in 1803, but didn't get the presidential stamp of approval until President Dwight Eisenhower signed off. He back-dated the declaration to the original date. On April 7, 1788, Ebenezer Sproat and a group of American pioneers to the Northwest Territory, led by Rufus Putnam, arrived at the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingum rivers to establish Marietta, Ohio as the first permanent American settlement in the Northwest Territory. Marietta was founded by New Englanders. SOURCE: /definition/OHIO

GIVING DOUBLE A brunette who really hated blondes was walking through the desert when she came across a magic lamp. After rubbing the lamp the genie told her that she got three wishes with one catch: All the blondes in the world would get twice whatever she asked for. So the brunette thought a while and then wished for a million dollars. 'Every blonde in the world will get two million.' The brunette said that was fine and then she asked for an incredibly handsome man. 'Every blonde in the world will get two incredibly handsome men.'

DONNELL RAWLINGS: SEAWORLD KILLER A whale is killing people in SeaWorld. That’s not funny but the headlines were funny: Killer Whale Kills. What the heck do you think a killer whales going to do? If you go to Brooklyn and see somebody named Killer Mike you don’t think he’d give you no roses.

GOLF WEEK The room was full of pregnant women and their partners, and the Lamaze class was in full swing. The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe properly, along with informing the men how to give the necessary assurances at this stage of the plan. The teacher then announced, "Ladies, exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. And, gentlemen, it wouldn't hurt you to take the time to go walking with your partner!" The room really got quiet. Finally, a man in the middle of the group raised his hand. "Yes?" replied the teacher. "Is it alright if she carries a golf bag while we walk?"

SIMPLE COMMANDS A doctor at an asylum decided to take his inmates to a baseball game. For weeks in advance, he coached his patients to respond to his commands. When the day of the game arrived, everything seemed to be going well. As the national anthem started, the doctor yelled, "Up nuts!" And the inmates complied by standing up. After the anthem he yelled, "Down Nuts!" And they all sat. After a home run he yelled, "Cheer nuts!" And they all broke into applause and cheers. Thinking things were going well, he decides to go get a beer and a hot dog, leaving his assistant in charge. When he returned there was a riot in progress. Finding his assistant, he asked what happened.

Q&A Q: Is Google male or female? A: Female, because it doesn't let you finish a sentence before making a suggestion. My friend says to me: "What rhymes with orange" I said: "no it doesn't"

SPEECH IMPEDIMENT Two life-long friends were enjoying a few pints down at the local bar, when one said to the other: "If I ask you a question, will you promise to answer me honestly?" "Yeah, sure thing," replied his friend, "fire away." "Well," said the first guy, "why do you think all the guys around here find my wife so attractive?" "It's probably because of her speech impediment," replied the second guy. "What do you mean her speech impediment?" inquired the first fellow. "My wife doesn't have a speech impediment!" "Well," replied his friend, "you must be the only guy who hasn't noticed that she can't say 'NO'!!" HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

AND GOD SAID And God said to John, come forth and you shall be granted eternal life. But John came fifth and won a toaster.

GAS STATION FILL-UP There was this gas station in "redneck country" trying to increase it's sales, so the owner put up a sign saying "Free Sex with Fill-up." Soon a "redneck" customer pulled in, filled his tank, and then asked for his free sex. The owner told him to pick a number from (1) to (10), and if he guessed correctly, he would get his free sex. The buyer then guessed (8) and the proprietor said, "No, you were close. The number was (7). Sorry, no free sex this time but maybe next time". Some time thereafter, the same man, along with his buddy this time, pulled in again for a fill-up, and again he asked for his free sex. The proprietor again gave him the same story and asked him to guess the correct number. The man guessed (2) this time, and the proprietor said, "Sorry, it was (3). You were close but no free sex this time". As they were driving away, the driver said to his buddy, "I think that game is rigged and he doesn't give away free sex". The buddy replied, "No, it's not rigged -- my wife won twice last week." Chinese New Year Feb 16!

Q&A Q: Why couldn't the blonde add 10 + 5 on a calculator? A: She couldn't find the "10" button. CAR CRASH There once was a cop who was surveying a car crash. There were two people that had died in the crash. When he saw a monkey come out of the wreck the cop said "Man I wish you could talk," as he looked at the monkey. "Then you could tell me what happened." "Oh but I can," replied the monkey. "Well what were the couple doing?" questioned the cop. "Kissing," replied the monkey. "They were kissing?" asked the cop. "Yes, answered the monkey, and smoking." "At the same time?!" cried the cop. "Yes, and drinking," replied the monkey. "So let me get this straight, said the cop. "They were kissing, smoking, and drinking at the same time." "Yep" answered the monkey. "Then what were you doing?" asked the cop. "Driving," answered the monkey NOT COMING TO WORK Hung Chow calls into work and says, " Hey, I am not coming to work today, I am really sick. I have a headache, stomach ache and legs hurt. I am not coming to work." The boss says, " I really need you today. When I feel like this, I go to my wife and tell her to give me sex. That makes everything better and I go to work. You try that." Two hours later Hung Chow calls again. "I did what you say and I feel great. I be at work soon .. You have a nice house!

ATTRACTING WOMEN A man walked into a therapist's office looking very depressed. "Doc, you've got to help me. I can't go on like this." "What's the problem?" the doctor inquired. "Well, I'm 35 years old and I still have no luck with the ladies. No matter how hard I try, I just seem to scare them away." "My friend, this is not a serious problem. You just need to work on your self-esteem. Each morning, I want you to get up and run to the bathroom mirror. Tell yourself that you are a good person, a fun

person, and an attractive person. But say it with real conviction. Within a week you'll have women buzzing all around you." The man seemed content with this advice and walked out of the office a bit excited. Three weeks later he returned with the same downtrodden expression on his face. "Did my advice not work?" asked the doctor. "It worked alright. For the past several weeks I've enjoyed some of the best moments in my life with the most fabulous looking women." "So, what's your problem?"

"I don't have a problem," the man replied. "My wife does."

SEX DRIVE "You're in remarkable shape for a man your age," said the doctor to the ninety-year old man after the examination. "I know it," said the old gentleman. "I've really got only one complaint-my sex drive is too high. Got anything you can do for that, Doc?" The doctor's mouth dropped open. "Your what?!" he gasped. "My sex drive," said the old man. "It's too high, and I'd like to have you lower it if you can." "Lower it?!" exclaimed the doctor, still unable to believe what the ninety-year old gentleman was saying. "Just what do you consider

'high'?" "These days it seems like it's all in my head, Doc," said the old man, "and I'd like to have you lower it a couple of feet if you can."

THE MECHANIC A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a well-known heart surgeon in his shop. The surgeon was there waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his bike. The mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey Doc can I ask you a question?" The surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic working on the motorcycle.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take valves out, fix'em, put 'em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?

MAKING GLOVES A dentist was getting ready to clean an elderly lady's teeth. He noticed that she was a little nervous, so he began to tell her a story as he was putting on his surgical gloves... "Do you know how they make these rubber gloves?" She said, "No?" "Well", he spoofed, "down in Mexico they have this big building set up with a large tank of latex, and the workers are all picked according to hand size. Each individual walks up to the tank, dips their hands in, and then walk around for a bit while the latex sets up and dries right onto their hands! Then they peel off the gloves and throw them into the big 'Finished Goods Crate' and start the process all over again." The Dentist was surprised as she didn't laugh a bit!!! Five minutes later, during the procedure, he had to stop cleaning her teeth because she burst out laughing. The old woman blushed and exclaimed, "I just suddenly thought about how they must make condoms. Q&A Q: Can a kangaroo jump higher than the Empire State Building? A: Of course. The Empire State Building can't jump. Duh!!

BEANS A teacher asked her students to use the word "beans" in a sentence. "My father grows beans," said one girl. "My mother cooks beans," said a boy. A third student spoke up, "We are all human beans." SHORT JOKES 1. My friend thinks he is smart. He told me an onion is the only food that makes you cry, so I threw a coconut at his face. 2. What happens to a frog's car when it breaks down? It gets toad away.

BLEEDING FOR HOURS A streetwalker was visiting her doctor for a regular check-up. "Any specific problems you should tell me about?" the doctor asked. "Well, I have noticed lately that if I get even the tiniest cut, it seems to bleed for hours." she replied. "Do you think I might be a haemophiliac?" "Well," the doctor answered, "Haemophilia is a genetic disorder and it is more often found in men, but it is possible for a woman to be a haemophiliac. Tell me, how much to you lose when you have your period?" After calculating for a moment, the hooker replied, "Oh, about seven or eight hundred dollars, I guess."

DUCK SHOOTING Five doctors went duck hunting one day. Included in the group were a GP, a pediatrician, a psychiatrist, a surgeon and a pathologist. After a time, a bird came winging overhead. The first to react was the GP who raised his shotgun, but then hesitated. "I'm not quite sure it's a duck," he said, "I think that I will have to get a second opinion." And of course by that time, the bird was long gone. Another bird appeared in the sky thereafter. This time, the pediatrician drew a bead on it. He too, however, was unsure if it was really a duck in his sights and besides, it might have babies. "I'll have to do some more investigations," he muttered, as the creature

made good its escape. Next to spy a bird flying was the sharp-eyed psychiatrist. Shotgun shouldered, he was more certain of his intended prey's identity. "Now, I know it's a duck, but does it know it's a duck?" The fortunate bird disappeared while the fellow wrestled with this dilemma. Finally, a fourth fowl sped past and this time the surgeon's weapon pointed skywards. BOOM!! The surgeon lowered his smoking gun and turned nonchalantly to the pathologist beside him. "Go see if that was a duck, will you?" FEBRUARY 19TH IS.. PRESIDENTS DAY!

POLICE LINEUP Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect, who just couldn't control himself during a lineup. Detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words, "Give me all your money or I'll shoot." One of them, when it was his turn, shouted, "That's not what I said!" DOCTOR'S ROOM A young mother paying a visit to a doctor friend and his wife made no attempt to restrain her fiveyear-old son, who was ransacking an adjoining room. But finally, an extra loud clatter of bottles did prompt her to say, "I hope, doctor, you don't mind Johnny being in there." "No," said the doctor calmly, "He'll be quiet when he gets to the poisons."

URGENT HEARTTRANSPLANT A man has a heart attack and is brought to the hospital ER. The doctor tells him that he will not live unless he has a heart transplant right away. Another doctor runs into the room and says, "You're in luck, two hearts just became available, so you will get to choose which one you want. One belongs to an attorney and the other to a social worker". The man quickly responds, "The attorney's". The doctor says, "Wait! Don't you want to know a little about them before you make your decision?" The man says, "We all know that social workers are bleeding hearts and the attorney's probably never used his!"

SHORT JOKES I bought my friend an elephant for his room. He said "Thanks" I said "Don't mention it"

I have an EpiPen. My friend gave it to me when he was dying, it seemed very important to him that I have it. 2007 3rd St. Eau Claire, WI 715.832.9508

RAILROAD A man who had spent his whole life in the desert visited a friend. He'd never seen a train or the tracks they run on. While standing in the middle of the RR tracks, he heard a whistle, but didn't know what it was. Predictably, he's hit and is thrown, ass-over-tea-kettle, to the side of the tracks, with some minor internal injuries, a few broken bones, and some bruises. After weeks in the hospital recovering, he's at his friend's house attending a party. While in the kitchen, he suddenly hears the teakettle whistling. He grabs a Wednesday Night Special 2 for 1's 7-9 pm

BLOOMER - DURAND - MENOMONIE baseball bat from the nearby closet and proceeds to batter and bash the teakettle into an unrecognizable lump of metal. His friend, hearing the ruckus, rushes into the kitchen, sees what's happened and asks the desert man, "Why'd you ruin my good tea kettle?" The desert man replies, "Man, you gotta kill these things when they're small."

ON A LONELY ISLAND A guy is stranded on an island with only a Doberman and a pig for company. There's plenty of food and water, and the weather is beautiful, so he's doing alright but after a few months he gets lonely... The pig starts to look more and more attractive - soft, pink flesh, round buttocks, etc. But every time this poor guy makes an advance towards the pig, the Doberman snarls at him and once almost bit his leg. Very frustrating. One day the guy sees a speck on the horizon, so he swims out there and it turns out to be a dinghy, cast adrift, and in the bottom of the boat is a beautiful woman, unconscious. He drags her to shore and brings her into his hut and slowly nurses her back health. Finally she is well enough to walk and she says to him "Thank you, thank you for saving my life. I don't know how I can ever repay you. I'll do anything for you, anything, just name it."

The guy thinks for a minute and says, "Would you mind taking my dog for a walk?" SHORT JOKES 1. I poured root beer in a square glass. Now I just have beer. 2. What's the difference between a hippo and a zippo? One is really heavy, and the other is a little lighter.

MEDICAL TEST MIX UP Mr. Smith goes to the doctor's office to collect his wife's test results. The lab tech says to him, "I'm sorry, sir, but there has been a bit of a mix-up and we have a problem. When we sent the samples from your wife to the lab, the samples from another Mrs. Smith were sent as well and we are now uncertain which one is your wife's. Frankly, that's either bad or terrible." "What do you mean?" "Well, one Mrs. Smith has tested positive for Alzheimer's disease and the other for AIDS. We can't tell which is your wife." "That's terrible! Can we do the test over?" asked Mr. Smith. "Normally, yes. But you have an HMO, and they won't pay for these expensive tests more than once." "Well, what am I supposed to do now?" "The HMO recommends that you drop your wife off in the middle of town. If she finds her way home, don't sleep with her."

SWITCHED INPUTS For a computer programming class, I sat directly across from someone, and our computers were facing away from each other. A few minutes into the class, she got up to leave the room. I reached between our computers and switched the inputs for the keyboards. She came back and started typing and immediately got a distressed look on her face. She called the teacher over and explained that no matter what she typed, nothing would happen. The teacher tried everything. By this time I was hiding behind my monitor and quaking red-faced. I started to type, "Leave me alone!" They both jumped back, silenced. "Whaa??" the teacher blubbered. Then I typed, "I said leave me alone!" The kid got really upset. "I didn't do anything to it, I swear!" It was all I could do to keep from laughing out loud. The conversation between them and HAL 2000 went on for an amazing five minutes. Me: "Don't touch me!" Her: "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to hit your keys that hard." Me: "Who do you think you are anyway?!" Etc.

MORE FACTS ABOUT OHIO - Ohio native James Ritty invented the cash register in 1878. As a saloon owner, Ritty had a problem with his employees stealing his money. He got the idea of a machine that kept track of the money transactions while looking at machinery on a steamboat to Europe. - Speaking of inventors, Thomas Edison was born in Milan, Ohio.

- The Shawshank Redemption was shot at the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield. It was later used for Air Force One and you can take tours of the facility. - Before the Boston Red Sox, there were the Cincinnati Red Stockings. Founded in 1869, they

Join Us at Sidetrack for Good Times!

were the first professional baseball team.

- Before going into television, Jerry Springer was the 56th mayor of Cincinnati. He considered running for Senate, but was concerned that his show’s negative reputation would affect his chances.

- Ohio is home to the “One and Only Presidential Museum.” The museum honors John Hanson, who was technically the first president of the United States; he and eight others were elected and served one year terms before the Constitution was written. Nick Pahys, Jr. DDG-CH-AdVSA.G.E.-LDA-FIBA (yes, he really does have that many initials!) does not like the fact that textbooks glossed over this important historical figure, so he erected the museum to properly educate the masses. Visitors can enjoy artifacts, portraits, and even a personal tour from the owner himself.

- The state houses the world’s largest cuckoo clock. The giant, fully functional structure is appropriately located in Sugarcreek, the “Little Switzerland of Ohio.”

- The Cuyahoga River has caught on fire at least 13 times; it’s aptly nicknamed “The River That Caught Fire.” The river was one of the most polluted rivers in the country and would catch fire after sparks from the train would fall into the water. After a highly media-covered fire in 1969, Congress was inspired to clean up pollution across the country and established the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

BABIES NAMING On a rainy day, an Indian from a tribe goes to his Chief. He asks the Chief, "Chief, how do you name all the people of our tribe?" The Chief replies,"Oh, it quite easy. When baby is born, I look at first thing I see moving in wilderness, and name baby just that.... "How so?" asks the Indian "Well," replies the Chief,"if I see coyote running in fields, I name baby Running Coyote, if I see a bull sitting, I name baby Sitting Bull." "Oh, I see now" says the Indian Then the Chief turns to the Indian and says, "Well, why do you ask, Shitting Dog?"

- Cleveland boasts America's first traffic light. It began on Aug. 5, 1914. DON'T SAY IT, SPELL IT My husband and I often spell words so that our small children won't understand what we're saying. I didn't realize what a habit this had become until one day when my husband and I were in the grocery store at the soup aisle. An aggressive young woman banged into our cart, then nudged me over, blocking my access to the soup. Annoyed, I looked at my husband and said, 'Boy is she r-u-d-e!' 'Yeah,' he replied, 'but I'll bet she can S-p-e-l-l.' ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE An Annapolis computer science major was given an artificial intelligence assignment for one of his classes. He ended up creating a program where you could have a conversation with your computer based on your IQ level. To test his program he entered 80 and had a conversation with his Soap Operas. He entered 100 and talked about politics. He entered 150 and talked about nuclear physics. Just to see what would happen he entered a -50 and the computer bumped and belched and sparked and smoked for a good 10 minutes. When it finally settled down it displayed "On B”.

MORE BEER A man came home from an exhausting day at work, plopped down on the couch in front of the television, and told his wife: "Get me a beer before it starts!" The wife sighed and got him a beer. Ten minutes later, he said: "Get me another beer before it starts!" She looked cross, but fetched another beer and slammed it down next to him. He finished that beer and a few minutes later said: "Quick, get me another beer, it's going to start any minute!" The wife was furious. "Is that all you're going to do tonight! Drink

BUYING CONDOMS A very proper man started going into the neighborhood pharmacy every week to buy two dozen boxes of condoms. Week after week he would come in with the same order. One day the pharmacist felt he had to say something to the man. "Wow! You must have the stamina of a bull. Talk about getting lucky! How on earth do you use that many condoms a week?"

The man looked at him in disgust and said, "I beg your pardon, but I find the whole idea of sex repulsive!" "So," the pharmacist asked, "then what do you do with all those condoms?" The gentleman answered, "I feed them to my poodle and now she poops in little plastic bags." 25 BEST THINGS TO DO IN OHIO ßFountain Square – Cincinnati: ßCleveland Museum of Art: ßFranklin Park Conservatory: ßUnion Terminal: ßWright Brothers National Memorial: ßStan Hywet Hall and Garden: ßHocking Hills State Park: ßCedar Point: ßDayton Aviation Heritage National Historic Park: ßRock and Roll Hall of Fame: ßCincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden: ßNational Underground Railroad Freedom Center: ßOhio State Reformatory: ßWest Side Market: ßSpring Grove Cemetery: ßImagination Station ß German Village:

PINK RHINESTONE GLASSES My dad had cataract surgery and had to go to the eye doctor for his post op checkup. He told me that when he was driving into town for his appointment he could hardly see. I told him, "Why didn't you let Mom drive?" He said, "She could not see either, it was very blurry for her too." So Mom sat in the waiting room, and could not even read a magazine because she could not see. Dad was at his appointment and was telling the Dr. he could not see at all today. The Dr. was giving Dad his eye exam while Dad was wearing his glasses and Dad asked, "Am I looking through trifocals?" The Dr. said, "Yes." Dad said, "Damn it, I have my wife's glasses on!!!"

THE HAIRCUT One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door. Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you , I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door. Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Congressman was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for

THE FINAL INSPECTION The Soldier stood and faced God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shining, Just as brightly as his brass.. 'Step forward now, Soldier , How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To My Church have you been true?' The soldier squared his shoulders and said, 'No, Lord, I guess I ain't. Because those of us who carry guns, Can't always be a saint. I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was tough. And sometimes I've been violent, Because the world is awfully rough. But, I never took a penny, That wasn't mine to keep... Though I worked a lot of overtime, When the bills got just too steep. And I never passed a cry for help,Though at times I shook with fear..And sometimes, God, forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears. I know I don't deserve a place, Among the people here. They never wanted me around, Except to calm their fears If you've a place for me here, Lord, It needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't, I'll understand. There was a silence all around the throne, Where the saints had often trod. As the Soldier waited quietly, For the judgment of his God. 'Step forward now, you Soldier, You've borne your burdens well. Walk peacefully on Heaven's



streets, You've done your time in Hell.' Unknown Author Submitted By: Patricia Mann Fairchild, WI

If I could take your troubles I would toss them in the sea, But all these things, I'm finding, Are impossible for me.

I cannot build a mountain Or catch a rainbow fair, But let me be what I know best, A friend who's always there.. Submitted By: Steve Martin 10 years ago the USA had Steve Jobs, Bob Hope, and Johnny Cash. Now the USA has no Jobs, no Hope, and no Cash.

MAP OF USA A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl. She wanted to know what the United States looked like. Finally, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed the map of the country. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to her and said, 'Go into the other room and see if you can put this together. After a few minutes, she returned and handed him the map, correctly fitted and taped together. The father was surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly.. 'Oh,' she said, 'on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got all of Jesus back where he belonged, then our country just came together.'

TEACHIN' NEW TRICKS A young man from Arkansas went off to college. Half way through the semester, having foolishly squandered all of his money on his girlfriend, he called home. "Dad, you won't believe what modern education is developing! They actually have a program here at Hendrix that will teach our dog, Ole' Blue how to talk!" "That's amazing, how do I get Ole' Blue in that program?" "Just send him over here with $1,000 and I can get him in the course." His Father sent the dog and $1,000. About two-thirds of the way through the semester, the money again ran out. The boy called home. "So how's Ole' Blue doing son?" his Father asked.

"Awesome! Dad, he's talking up a storm, but you just won't believe this -- they've had such good results they have started to teach the animals how to read!" "Read!?" No kidding! How do we get Blue in that program?" Just send $2,500, I'll get him in the class." The money promptly arrived. The Arkie and his girlfriend were able to buy enough marijuana to last the whole semester. But our hero has a problem. At the end of the year, his father will find out the dog can neither talk, nor read. Even though he was always pretty much able to lie his way out of trouble, the Arkie asked his girlfriend to help him think of a really good lie to tell his Dad. She very quickly came up with a lie for him. She had him shoot the dog. When the young man arrived home at the end of the year, his Father was very excited. "Where's Ole' Blue? I just can't wait to see him read something and talk!" "Dad, I have some grim news. Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home, Ole' Blue was in the living room, kicked back in the recliner, reading the Wall Street Journal, like he usually did. Then Ole' Blue turned to me and asked, so, is your Daddy still messing around with that little redhead who lives down the street?" The Father went white. "I hope you shot that lying damn dog before he talks to your Mother!" "I sure did, Dad!" "That's my boy!" The kid married his girlfriend, they both went on to law school in Fayetteville. He became Governor of Arkansas and

SMOKING, DRINKING, AND UNMARRIED FOOLING AROUND God visited a woman and told her she must give up smoking, drinking and unmarried fooling around if she wanted to get into heaven. The woman said she would try her best. God visited the woman a week later to see how she was getting on. "Not bad" said the woman, "I've given up smoking and drinking but then I bent over to get some stuff out of the freezer and my boyfriend caught sight of my long slender legs, he pulled up my skirt, pulled my panties to one side and made love to me right then and there." "They don’t like that in heaven,” said God. The woman replied, "They're not too happy about it in GORDY’S IGA either!"

SNACK LUNCHES I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat. It was going to be a long flight. 'I'm glad I have a good book to read. Perhaps I will get a short nap,' I thought. Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a conversation. 'Where are you headed?' I asked the soldier seated nearest to me. 'Petawawa. We'll be there for two weeks for special training, and then we're being deployed to Afghanistan. After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were available for five dollars. It would be several hours before we reached the east, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time... As I reached for my wallet, I overheard a soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch. 'No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch. Probably wouldn't be worth five bucks. I'll wait till we get to base.' His friend agreed. I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a fifty dollar bill. 'Take a lunch to all those soldiers.' She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly.

with tears, she thanked me. 'My son was a soldier in Iraq ; it's almost like you are doing it for him.' Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seat and asked, 'Which do you like best - beef or chicken?' 'Chicken,' I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to the front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class. 'This is your thanks.' After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for the rest room. A man stopped me. 'I saw what you did. I want to be part of it. Here, take this.' He handed me twenty-five dollars. Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Flight Captain coming down the aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he walked, I hoped he was not looking for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the plane. When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand and said, 'I want to shake your hand.' Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain's hand. With a booming voice he said, 'I was a soldier and I was a military

pilot. Once, someone bought me a lunch. It was an act of kindness I never forgot.' I was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the passengers. Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs. A man who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine. He left another twenty-five dollars in my palm. When we landed I gathered my belongings and started to deplane. Waiting just inside the airplane door was a man who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word. Another twentyfive dollars! Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base. I walked over to them and handed them seventyfive dollars. 'It will take you some time to reach the base. It will be about time for a sandwich. God Bless You.' Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow travelers. As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer for their safe return. These soldiers were giving their all for our country. I could only give them a couple of meals. It seemed so little...

THE STUTTERING CAT Little Johnny was in biology class and the teacher stated the Human beings were the only living things that stuttered. Little Johnny raised his hand and said, "I once had a cat that stuttered." "How is that?" the teacher asked. Little Johnny replied "I was in the back yard with my kitty and the neighbors big dog jumped over the fence." "That must have been really scarey!" the teacher replied. "It sure was!" said Johnny, "My kitty arched it's back and went fffff! fffff! fffff!, but before she could say the word "FUCK" , the dog ate her."

A COLD WEATHER TALE It's late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in South Dakota asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared. But, being a practical leader, after several days, he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, 'Is the coming winter going to be cold?' 'It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold, 'the meteorologist at the weather service responded. So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared. A week later, he called the National Weather Service again. 'Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?' 'Yes, 'the man at National Weather Service again replied, 'it's going to be a very cold winter.' The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find. Two weeks later, the chief called Meet Andy & Jill at...

the National Weather Service again. 'Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?' 'Absolutely, 'the man replied. 'It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters we've ever seen.' 'How can you be so sure?' the chief asked... The weatherman replied, 'The Native Americans are collecting a shitload of firewood." Submitted By: Jerry Torkelson Chippewa Falls, WI SHORT JOKES How do you get two whales in a car?

REMEMBER SLOW FOOD Someone asked the other day, 'What was your favorite fast food when you were growing up?' 'We didn't have fast food when I was growing up, I informed him. 'All the food was slow.' 'C'mon, seriously. Where did you eat?' 'It was a place called 'at Home,'' I explained! 'Mom cooked every day and when Dad got home from work, we sat down together at the dining room table, and if I didn't like what she put on my plate I

was allowed to sit there until I did like it.' By this time, the kid was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to suffer serious internal damage, so I didn't tell him the part about how I had to have permission to leave the table. But here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I figured his system could have handled it : Some parents NEVER owned their own house, never wore Levi’s, never set foot on a golf course, never traveled out of the country or had a credit card. In their later years they had something called a revolving charge card. The card was good only at Sears Roebuck. Or maybe it was Sears & Roebuck. Either way, there is no Roebuck anymore. Maybe he died. My parents never drove me to soccer practice. This was mostly because we never had heard of soccer. I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed, (slow). We didn't have a television in our house until I was 11. It was, of course, black and white, and the station went off the air at midnight, after playing

the national anthem and a poem about God; it came back on the air at about 6 a.m And there was usually a locally produced news and farm show on, featuring local people. I was 19 before I tasted my first pizza, it was called 'pizza pie.' When I bit into it, I burned the roof of my mouth and the cheese slid off, swung down, plastered itself against my chin and burned that, too. It's still the best pizza I ever had. I never had a telephone in my room. The only phone in the house was in the living room and it was on a party line. Before you could dial, you had to listen and make sure some people you didn't know weren't already using the line. Pizzas were not delivered to our home. But milk was. All newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers--my brother delivered a newspaper, six days a week. It cost 7 cents a paper, of which he got to keep 2 cents. He had to get up at 6 AM every morning. On Saturday, he had to collect the 42 cents from his customers. His favorite customers were the ones who gave him 50 cents and told him to keep the change. His least favorite customers were the ones who seemed to never be home on collection day.

Movie stars kissed with their mouths shut. At least, they did in the movies. There were no movie ratings because all movies were responsibly produced for everyone to enjoy viewing, without profanity or violence or most anything offensive. If you grew up in a generation before there was fast food, you may want to share some of these memories with your children or grandchildren Just don't blame me if they bust a gut laughing. Growing up isn't what it used to be, is it?

MEMORIES FROM A FRIEND My Dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and he brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle top was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it. I knew immediately what it was, but my daughter had no idea. She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to 'sprinkle' clothes with water because we didn't have steam irons. Man, I am old. How many do you remember?

CUTTING IT CLOSE A man enters a barber shop for a shave. While the barber is foaming him up, he mentions the problems he has getting a close shave around the cheeks. "I have just the thing," says the barber taking a small wooden ball from a nearby drawer. "Just place this between your cheek and gum." The client places the ball in his mouth and the barber proceeds with the closest shave the man has ever experienced. After a few strokes the client asks in garbled speech. "And what if I swallow it?" "No problem," says the barber. "Just bring it back tomorrow like everyone else does." Submitted By: Kevin Stanton

GETTING THE POLICE George Phillips, an elderly man from Walled Lake, Michigan, 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 turnoff the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things. He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me." Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy, you should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available." George said, "Okay." He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he 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 and killed them both; the dogs are eating them right now," and 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) Don't mess with old people


GETTING OLDER A few chuckles for seniors. A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor's office. "Is it true," she wanted to know, "that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?" "'Yes, I'm afraid so,"' the doctor told her. There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied, "I'm wondering, then, just how serious is my condition because this prescription is marked 'NO REFILLS'.." *********************** An older gentleman was on the operating table awaiting surgery and he insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he was about to get the anesthesia, he asked to speak to his son. "Yes, Dad, what is it?" "Don't be nervous, son; do your best, and just remember, if it doesn't go well, if something happens to me, your mother is going to come and live with you and your wife...." ( I LOVE THIS !) *********************** AGING Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it. This is so true.
