This was our first contest, and we teamed up with Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli in Auburn. How it worked: People on Facebook had to like Uncle Andy’s Digest Facebook page, enter the contest and then like Heidi’s Brooklyn Deli’s page. We had a great first round of entrants. In the photo to the left, Bruce Gerry of Auburn was the big winner of a $50 gift card to Heidi’s! You better git on your ‘puter right now and enter the next contest.

Sacrifices Submitted by the Wives

The four married guys from Uncle Andy’s Digest go golfing on Sunday. During the 3rd hole the following conversation ensued: Travis: "Man, you have no idea what I had to do to be able to come out golfing this weekend. I had to promise my wife that I will paint every room in the house next weekend." Uncle Andy: "That's nothing, I had to promise my wife that I will build her a new deck for the pool." Marty: "Man, you both have it easy! I had to promise my wife that I will remodel the kitchen for her." They continue to play the hole when they realized that the fourth guy has not said a word. So they ask him. "You haven't said anything about what you had to do to be able to come golfing this weekend. What's the deal?" Jimbo: "I don't want to talk about it. Let's just say that the foundation for the new house is being poured next Tuesday." Einstein developed a theory about space, and it was about time too.

Spelling Test The schoolteacher was taking her first golfing lesson. "Is the word spelt p-u-t or p-u-t-t?'' she asked the instructor.

From the Politically Correct Dictionary: Android: bipedal, non-human associate, bearing immense knowledge and skill

Rolly’s Diner Just good cookin’ and plenty of it!

"P-u-t-t is correct,'' he replied.

I love the atmosphere, people & food here. I especially like that they serve fried bologna & eggs, there’s not many places that do that anymore.

"Put means to place a thing where you want it. Putt means merely a vain attempt to do the same thing."

Loving Children With four daughters and one son always dashing to school activities and part-time jobs, our schedule was hectic. To add to this, we kept running out of household supplies. I instructed them all to let me know when they used the last of any item by writing it down on a note pad on the refrigerator. As a reminder, I wrote at the top: "IF WE ARE OUT OF IT, WRITE IT DOWN." When I checked the pad a few days later, to my delight I found the following message: "MOM, YOU MAY BE A BIT OLD-FASHIONED, BUT YOU ARE NOT 'OUT OF IT."' Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis

Community Credit Union has been using Uncle Andy’s Digest for advertising since their very first issue, back in 1996. We have found it to be a valuable and irreplaceable part of our marketing plan. Just from observation in our lobbies - we get Uncle Andy’s Digest delivered to us and within 5-10 days our supply is depleted. This tells us that people LOVE reading the Digest.

On a personal note, when we go out to eat with our families our husbands and children always grab a copy and look through it while we’re waiting for our food. My daughter, who’s 2½, even likes to look through it… it’s no joke that we went to Youly’s for breakfast one morning and she refused to leave the restaurant without taking her copy of UAD with her.

Marriage Counselling

We are going on a class trip to the Coca-Cola factory. I hope there's no pop quiz.

Submitted by Jimbo

A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counseling came up. "Oh, we'll never need that. My husband and I have a great relationship," the wife explained. "He was a communications major in college and I majored in theater arts." "He communicates real well and I just act like I'm listening." Is it just me or does the word skeptical look like it's spelled wrong? New Client Offer

Someone dialed 911.

“A proud member of the Napa Auto Care Team.”

When the paramedics arrived, they helped him regain consciousness and asked if he knew what caused him to faint. "It was enough to make anybody faint," he said. "My son asked me for the keys to the garage, and instead of driving the car out, he came out with the lawn mower."

Rejected Invitation Submitted by Jimbo

Mrs. Jones was reading a letter at breakfast. Suddenly she looked up suspiciously at her husband. "Henry," she said, "I've just received a letter from mother saying she isn't accepting our invitation to come and stay, as we do not appear to want her. What does she mean by that? I told you to write and say that she was to come at her own convenience. You did write, didn't you?" "Er, yes, I did," said the husband. "But I couldn't spell convenience, so I made it risk."

Pre-birth Class Submitted by Jimbo

Things You'll Never Hear a Dad Say: Here's a credit card and the keys to my new car -- GO CRAZY.

When our second child was on the way, my wife and I attended a pre-birth class aimed at couples who had already had at least one child. The instructor raised the issue of breaking the news to the older child. It went like this: "Some parents," she said, "tell the older child, 'We love you so much we decided to bring another child into this family.' But think about that. Ladies, what if your husband came home one day and said, 'Honey, I love you so much I decided to bring home another wife.'" One of the women spoke up immediately. "Does she cook?"

Texas Doctor Charles Alderton, American inventor of the Dr. Pepper soft drink, was born in 1857 in Brooklyn, New York. While working as a soda clerk in 1885 at the Old Corner Drug Store in Waco, Texas, Charles concocted the soda fountain syrup that later became known as Dr. Pepper. Trivia fans: His customers originally asked for the drink by asking Alderton to shoot them a "Waco." Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis & Jimbo

IS YOUR TEEN USING DRUGS? Wipe & Spray Drug Detection Assessment Step 1. Call us to schedule an in-home wipe & spray test. To test for the presence of drugs on commonly-used surfaces in your home and vehicles.

Step 2. One of our experienced professionals will come to your home and wipe down desired surfaces, then perform the spray test for detection of substances.

Step 3. You are given the results of the test, and the piece of mind of truly knowing if your teen is using drugs or not.

MID MAINE DRUG SCREENING & INVESTIGATIONS

There where once two brothers called William and Wayne. Will was 12 years old and his little brother was 3. The neighbors noticed they always went around together, if William went down to the ballpark, his little brother would toddle along behind him, even if the game was a bit rough, and when Wayne went to playgroup, his elder brother would come too, and sit there with all the toddlers. One neighbor thought this was really strange, so one day he leaned over the fence and asked the boys' mother why they were so inseparable even though they had nothing in common. "Well," the mother replied, "didn't you know? 'Where there's a Will there's a Wayne.'"

Pregnant Wife A man speaks frantically into the phone, "My wife is pregnant, and her contractions are only two minutes apart!" "Is this her first child?" the doctor queries.

The First Parent by Bill Cosby

Local Restaurants & Entertainment VOTED #1 Casual Restaurant & Best Burgers in L/A area

Whenever your kids are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to his kids. After creating Heaven and Earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing He said to them was: "Don't." "Don't what?", Adam replied. "Don't eat the forbidden fruit." "Forbidden fruit? Really? Where is it?" "It's over there," said God, wondering why He hadn't stopped after making the elephants.

A few minutes later God saw the kids having an apple break and He was angry. "Didn't I tell you not to eat that fruit?" the First Parent asked.

"Then why did you?" "I dunno," Adam answered. God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis & Jimbo

Little Blonde Moments By Natasha Piirainen

The office could use some more rooms, but that's a whole other storey.

PAVING & SEALCOATING Residential & Commercial My sister is wonderful; she has a gentle soul and wouldn’t hurt a fly, and goes out of her way to be nice to everyone, but sometimes she suffers from what we at the Piirainen house like to call little blonde moments. With the lightest hair of the four girls, it’s a fitting title for her sometimes thoughtless moments. For example just the other day she was eating Thai food in my room and asked me if I wanted some. “No thanks,” I said, “I’m not really in the mood for Asian food.” “Asian food?” she responded, “But this is Thai food!” Of course after a small pause to let herself realize what she said, she adds, “Oh, my. Please pretend I didn’t just say that.” She’ll be happy to see I’ve immortalized the moment in Uncle Andy’s Digest for everyone to read. My favorite blonde moment of hers, though, happened on our way to a doctor’s appointment; we had never met him nor had ever been there before, and on the side of the building a sign read something similar to the following: Parkway Dr. Bldg 4 Upon seeing the sign, my well-meaning sister announced, “Doctor Buldge? I’ve never heard a name like that before!” Of course the rest of us could not hide our laughter, and she couldn’t understand why until my father explained to her, “That means Parkway Drive, building four.” Her face got red, but she was a good sport about it and laughed with the rest of us, knowing full well it wasn’t the first, and certainly wouldn’t be the last of her little blonde moments.

Three boys were heading home from school one day when one started the time-honored game of paternal one-upmanship.

Grandparent Funnies When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in.

PET & OWNER OF THE MONTH Sophie seems to really enjoy the time she spends with the gang at Doggone Fun. She comes home all tuckered out from playing with her buddies. The staff is very friendly and spends a lot of time interacting with the dogs. The facility is clean, well maintained and they are always adding new features. It is comforting knowing that the owners live on site and can remotely monitor the dogs after hours. I recommend Doggone Fun Daycare to anyone I know who is looking for a fun, safe place for their dog to stay.

A Maine Tradition You Can Count On! DAILY SPECIALS

The following is a true story written by an educational psychologist and her experience on a plane.

On a flight to Florida, I was preparing my notes for one of the parent-education seminars I conduct as an educational psychologist. The elderly woman sitting next to me explained that she was returning to Miami after having spent two weeks visiting her six children, 18 grandchildren and ten greatgrandchildren in Boston. Then she inquired what I did for a living.

Owl Friend

Real advertisements from around the country: Used Cars: Why go elsewhere to be cheated? Come here first!

Submitted by Anna Waldman

Each evening bird lover Uncle Andy stood in his backyard, hooting like an owl - and one night, an owl finally called back to him. For a year, Uncle Andy and his feathered friend hooted back and forth. He even kept a log of the "conversation." Just as he thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in interspecies communication, his wife had a chat with her next door neighbor. "My husband spends his nights... calling out to owls," she said.

John Frost of Brunswick has recently joined the ranks at Benoit's Bakery and Wine Cellar in Lisbon, as their Head Donut Maker. Frost, formerly of Frosty's Donuts in Brunswick, brings to the company over 36 years of professional donut making experience and his special secret ingredient and techniques that his previous customers came to enjoy over the years. Frost's parents started the original Frosty's Donuts over 46 years ago, "if you count all the years as a kid I helped my dad make donuts, then I guess I actually have 46 years of experience," Frost quipped. John was the owner of Frosty's in Bath for 27 years also. The addition of Frost to the Benoit's Bakery team has already began to take the company to a new level. They now feature donuts 7 Days a week, and at last count have 35 different types of donuts available, with at least 25 different types available on a daily basis. "The twist donuts are a favorite..." Frost remarked," ..we also have maple, chocolate, 5 different types of jelly like blueberry, lemon, apple strawberry & raspberry. There's 3 different types of cake donuts, like pumpkin, apple crisp & blueberry & there's even a maple donut or twist topped with a strip of real bacon. I'm very excited about this new opportunity and look forward to bring customers & friends old or new, the best donuts around." Benoit's Bakery General Manager Greg Hird stated, "The addition of John to our team has had an immediate positive impact. We're blessed to have John and all of his experience on our team. Our donut business is already growing steadily and we're excited about where things are headed, and also about being able to offer these amazing donuts to our customers." Benoit's Bakery & Wine Cellar is located at 72 Lisbon Rd in Lewiston and can be contacted by phone at 353-7552. They offer baked goods, nuts, cheeses, breads, donuts & pastries and also have over 500 labels of wine. Their farm stand is also open at the same location offering Fresh Native Produce. Stop by and say hello to John today! See the Benoit’s Bakery ad on page 32.

Things Mom Would Never Say: "The curfew is just a general time to shoot for. It's not like I'm running a prison around here."

Welcome to summer, Uncle Andy’s Digesters. It is finally officially here – the summer days and the summer nights, blackflies and mosquito bites. With the summer brings BBQs, swimming in the creek and yes, mowing the lawn. Hey, it can’t all be fun, right? Now since we will all be celebrating the wonderful independence of our extraordinary country, there is a drastic difference this year. You will no longer have to cross the state line and smuggle your bottle rockets, hoosker-doos and hoosker-don’ts and any other fireworks back across the highly patrolled Maine borders, because they are now legal in the Vacationland. All you need to do is jump into the pickup (or hybrid sedan if you prefer) and head over to Scarborough and stock up on all of your firework needs at Atlas Fireworks. They have a great selection at great prices and who doesn’t love fireworks? Other than old Fido, but he can’t hold his bladder anymore these days anyway. Now don’t be a chowdah head once you fill your vehicle with a larger fireworks display than they have at Halfwaytonowhere, ME. Be safe and remember fireworks are great when used responsibly. Just in case you get the bad idea to try and make your fireworks display visible from Neptune, you might want to check into some insurance from the Modern Woodmen of America for some quality life insurance, or perhaps you need some help with financial assistance because you took out a second mortgage on the house for stuff to light on fire and blow up. Either way, check them out to see their full line of services. Digesters, it is past my bedtime and we all know I need my beauty sleep more than a bird needs its wings! Until next month, Happy 4th of July and GO TEAM USA. I love the Olympics! Uncle Andy’s Digest ...witThravis & Jimbo

Disaster Encounter

We were so poor when I was growing up we couldn't even afford to pay attention.

Submitted by Jimbo

"Oh, No!" he gasped as he surveyed the disaster before him. Never in his 40 years of life had he seen anything like it. How anyone could have survived he did not know. He could only hope that somewhere amid the overwhelming destruction he would find his 16-year-old son. Only the slim hope of finding Danny kept him from turning and fleeing the scene. He took a deep breath and proceeded. Walking was virtually impossible with so many things strewn across his path. He moved ahead slowly. "Danny! Danny!" he whispered to himself. He tripped and almost fell several times. He heard someone, or something, move. At least he thought he did. Perhaps, he was just hoping he did. He shook his head and felt his gut tighten. He couldn't understand how this could have happened. There was some light but not enough to see very much. Something cold and wet brushed against his hand. He jerked it away.

Sea 40’s Testimonial Before joining SPRQ, I was paying for a gym membership that was rarely used. I never enjoyed the gym atmosphere because I felt that I was at a total different fitness level than everyone else there. When a close friend of mine invited me to attend a Zumba class at SPRQ Studio, I knew that this was something for me. I had a smile on my face throughout the whole workout! A year later, I still go multiple times a week and enjoy not only the great workout I get from each class, but the sense of family from the instructors. It’s great! – Amanda Grenier

Testimonial

Grand Opening

When I joined SPRQ, I wanted to get into shape for my wedding, but was bored going to the gym and doing what I felt was running on a hamster wheel. Kelli and her staff make classes fun while being sure to push each person to their own personal limit. At no point have I ever felt embarrassed because I was not doing something right or because I had to stop. SPRQ is a family that supports each and every person who walks through the door, from their personal fitness goals, to life goals and everything in between. – Abby Dix

We eat here at least once a week, baby Mason loves the Hibachi show!

Arizona Rain A visitor once asked, "Does it ever rain in Arizona?" A rancher quickly answered, "Yes, it does. Do you remember in the Bible where it rained for 40 days and 40 nights?"
