After they crawl out of the wreckage, the woman says, "Wow, look at our cars -there's nothing left! This must be a sign from Him that we should be friends and not try to pin the blame on each other." The man replies, "Oh yes, I agree with you completely." The woman points to a bottle on the ground and says, "Somehow this bottle of Scotch from my back seat didn't break. Surely God wants us to drink this Scotch and celebrate our good fortune." She hands the bottle to the man. The man nods his head in agreement, opens it, and chugs about a third of the bottle to calm his nerves. The woman takes the bottle, immediately puts the cap back on, and hands it back to the man. The man asks, "Aren't you having any?" The woman replies, "No. I think I'll just wait for the police."

10 Tips for Spring Cleaning! 1. Replace all cleaners with eco-friendly cleaning products 2. Use white vinegar, baking soda & lemon juice to clean the surface of sinks & tubs to make them shine 3. Change to fluoride-free toothpaste & mouthwash 4. Store your food in glass. Avoid plastic containers 5. Look for eco-friendly laundry products (ie detergents, softeners) with all-natural & biodegradable ingredients 6. To get fresh-smelling laundry, add 5 drops of lavender &/or chamomile oil to eco-friendly laundry detergent or directly to water

7. Use a clothesline instead of a clothes dryer. It saves money and is kinder to the environment 8. Pay attention to adequate indoor ventilation by opening the windows when you can 9. Opt for natural room scents like essential oils, beeswax candles or flowers 10. Spring clean your wardrobe. When you’re putting your winter clothes away, replace mothballs with natural alternatives. Stuff a sock with cinnamon sticks, whole cloves and bay leaves, then tie the end of the sock in a knot to make your own drawer freshener.

A fellow got up one morning and decided he no longer was going to shave himself, he was instead going to the barber for his morning shave. The town barber also happened to be the local pastor in town. When the guy walked into the barber shop the barber/pastor was not there, he was out on a pastoral call but his wife Grace was in the shop. The man said to Grace, "I want a shave." Grace told him to climb up in the chair and she gave him a shave. When Grace was finished he asked her how much for the shave and Grace said, "Twenty dollars." "Twenty dollars, that seems a little steep," the guy replied. Grace said: "That's my charge." So the guy gave her $20 bill and went on his way. The next morning when he got up he went to the mirror and looked and his face was as smooth as when he was shaved the day before. He checked the following the day, same thing, a week went by, two weeks and his face stayed as smooth as a (continued on next page)

He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend. The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring. The man said, “No, I'd like to see something more special.” At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. “Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000,” the jeweler said. The lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. The old man seeing this said, “We'll take it.” The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the man stated, “By check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank Monday to verify the funds and I'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon.” On Monday morning, the jeweler angrily phoned the old man and said, “There's no money in that account.” “I know,” said the old man, “But let me tell you about my weekend!” Uncle Andy’s Digest ...with

Caddying for the elderly beginner had required great patience. He was a bit shaky but he was dogged and he had sworn to break 100 before the summer was out. In fact there was a bottle of malt riding on it - his faithful caddie would receive it when the magic score had been broken. Then arrived a day when dogged persistence seemed about to pay off for both player and caddie. They were on the green at the eighteenth and only 97 strokes had been accounted for. Player and caddie were excited and in the grip of such emotion it was a small wonder that the player sent his first putt racing three yards past the hole. In a flash the caddie had dropped the flagstick, picked up the ball and was crying excitedly. "Well done, sir! You've done it! You've done it! Anyone would give you that."

I’m texting my boss at Payroll Management to let him know I’m calling in well.

One day two carrots were walking down the street. They were the best of friends. Just as they started to step off the curb a car came speeding around the corner and ran one of them over. The unhurt carrot called an ambulance and helped his friend as best he could. He was taken to emergency at the hospital, and rushed away. After many hours of agonized waiting, the doctor came out. He walked over to the distraught carrot and said "I have good news, and I have bad news. The good news is that your friend is going to pull through." "The bad news is that he's going to be a vegetable for the rest of his life".

Golf Funnies Two golfers were sitting at the 19th hole discussing their games this year when one says to the other, " My game is so bad this year I had to have my ball retriever regripped!" Well, I have never played this badly before! I didn't realize you had played before, Sir. Please stop checking your watch all the time, caddy. It's distracting! This isn't a watch, Sir, its a compass! Caddy, Do you think my game is improving? Oh yes, Sir! You miss the ball much closer than you used to.
