This minister just had all of his remaining teeth pulled and new dentures
were being made. The first Sunday, he only preached 10 minutes. The
second Sunday, he preached only 20 minutes. But, on the third Sunday, he
preached 1 hour and 25 minutes. When asked about this by some of the
congregation, he responded this way..... The first Sunday, my gums were so
sore it hurt to talk. The second Sunday, my dentures were hurting a lot. The
third Sunday, I accidentally grabbed my wife's dentures..... AND I COULDN'T

--------- Pilotless Plane Takes Off and Disappears ---------
California - Amateur pilot Paul Clary was working on his plane, the "1946
Aeronca Champion" when it broke free from its blocks. With the throttle up,
the plane taxied down the runway and took off without anyone at the
controls. He described the incident as a "nightmare." He was trying to
drain a flooded engine when he turned the propeller and the engine
started. He and his son chased the plane in a van for almost 10 minutes
until they lost sight of it. Emergency broadcasts alerted local radio of the
potential danger, and a helicopter was sent to locate the plane. Authorities
estimate that the plane crashed because it only had two hours worth of
fuel. The helicopter ceased it's mission after a four-hour search. Walt
Smith, regional coordinator for the Federal Aviation Administration said,
"This will be in the aviation history books. It's pretty wild. We thought
we'd heard everything." So did we.
----- Massachusetts Woman Meets the Spiders from Mars ------
Talbott is in search of spiders from Mars. The whole thing started last year
on a cool September night. Nancy woke up to a loud droning noise that
completely surrounded her remote Massachusetts home. The phenomenon lasted
about an hour, and although she went outside to investigate the pitch
dark kept her from seeing anything. The next morning her entire property was
covered in thousands of what she described as little gooey spider webs. They
were everywhere covering the house, lawn, trees and fences. She sent a
sample to a local lab which told her they did not know what the
substance was, but it was not spider webs. Is it the ex- haust of an
experimental aircraft? Is it a new type of air pollution? Is it the
aftermath of a close encounter? She is still searching for answers, so if
any of this sounds familiar Nancy would love to hear from you.

As cab drivers oftentimes do, the driver was darting in and out of heavy
traffic with complete abandon. After a few hair raising blocks, his
passenger leaned forward and said, "Would you please be more careful? I have
six children at home."
"Scheesch lady." murmured the cabbie. "You got six
kids and ya got the nerve to tell ME to be careful?"
I met someone in the elevator who was drinking coffee and
complaining about how coffee made him nervous.
I asked him, "Why
don't you quit drinking coffee?"
He replied, "Because if I didn't have
the shakes, I wouldn't get any exercise at all."
My friend Linda, her sister, and I were driving in the procession to the
cemetery for the funeral of a distant relative. "Since we don't really
know anybody, do you want to head on home?" she asked.
When her sister
nodded, Linda made a right turn.
She had gotten about a quarter of a
mile down the road when she happened to look in her rear-view mirror. The
rest of the procession was still following us!

A bishop discovered a tribe of Indians in

The bishop soon rectified the situation by baptizing and confirming
everyone. He also married every couple that walked by and desired
Later, the tribal chief told the Bishop the tribe had never had
so much fun. The bishop asked the chief which part they enjoyed the
"The marriage service," the chief said, smiling.

Why do we try to trick our friends on April 1st?
In the early sixteenth century, France observed New
Year's Day on March 25 with celebrations that lasted until April 1. Then, around
1564, King Charles IX adapted the more accurate Gregorian calendar and moved the
beginning of the year to January 1.
Many Frenchmen, who either didn't know about the change
or refused to honor it, continued to hold parties and exchange gifts on April 1.
Jokers made fun of these people by sending them frivolous gifts and invitations
to non-existent parties. Playing these practical jokes was so much fun that
after the calendar change was accepted by all Frenchmen, people made April Fools
Day a tradition in its own right.
This is a good one to send to friends with a GOOD sense of humor, to wish
them a Happy 2002!. I left all the extra 'stuff' that goes on a page OFF.
Have a Safe and Happy New Year!! Terri

The first Jewish President of the United States calls his mother in Queens
and invites her to come down for Thanksgiving. She says, "I'd like to, but
it's so much trouble...I mean, I have to get a cab to the airport, and
I hate waiting on Queens Blvd..."
He replies, "Mom! I'm the President!
You won't need a cab - I'll send a limousine for you!"
replies, "I know, but then I'll have to get my ticket at the airport, and try
to get a seat on the plane, and I hate to sit in the middle...it's just too
He replies, "Mom! I'm the President of the United
States! I'll send Air Force One for you - it's my private jet!"
which she replies, "Oh, well, but then when we land, I'll have to carry my
luggage through the airport, and try to get a cab...it's really too much
He replies, "Mom!! I'm the President! I'll send a
helicopter for you! You won't have to lift a finger."
"Yes, that's nice...but, you know, I still need a hotel room, and the rooms
are so expensive, and I really don't like the rooms..."
he answers, "Mom! I'm the President! You'll stay at the White
She responds, "Well...all right...I guess I'll come."

A priest rushed from church one day to keep a golf date. He was halfway down
the first fairway, waiting to hit his second shot, when he heard the familiar
"FORE!" and a ball slammed into his back.
Soon the golfer who had made
the drive was on the scene to offer his apologies.
When the priest
assured him that he was all right, the man smiled.
Father!" he exclaimed. "I've been playing this game for forty years, and now
I can finally tell my friends that I've hit my first holy one!"
A frustrated wife tells her friend, "I want to divorce my husband because he
has a lousy memory!"
Her friend replies,
"Why would you want to
divorce him for that?"
The wife says,
"Every time he gets around a
young woman, he keeps forgetting that he's married!"

The agent said, "Certainly ye
have...Why do you ask? "
Murphy replied, "Cancel the sale...its too good
to part with."
QUOTES OF THE YEAR
That old world will keep on turning "I hate to say it
in a hard-hearted way, but the sun keeps coming up and the sun keeps
going down, and the world keeps on. Out of respect for yourself and fellow
men, you're going to think about it and mourn a little bit, but you've got
to leave it alone and go on." -- Richard Petty, on Dale Earnhardt's
More wisdom from Petty "You've got to have a lead dog. You've
got to have somebody out there for everybody to shoot at." -- Richard
They smiled and nodded "It's like talking to nothing." -- Jimmy
Spencer, asked to describe his discussions with NASCAR
dishes "To have been able to stay here, stay in one of these things, not
get shuffled out and still poke your nose up around the front every now and
then, it makes you feel good." -- Ken Schrader
Must be strong paper
clips "The track is two drag strips hooked up by a couple of paper
clips." -- Joe Nemechek, describing Martinsville Speedway They good people and all "You don't want to rough nobody up, but some of them
boys don't care." -- Bobby Hamilton at
Steam-powered "The gas mileage was a lot better than the
water mileage today." -- Mike Skinner, after his Chevy overheated
for you to say "Darrell (Waltrip) told me that you've got to make sure you
don't repeatedly accept mediocrity." -- Jimmy Spencer
Popsicle "Bring his head back on a stick, as far as I'm concerned." --
Tony Stewart, asked what he thought our troops ought to do about
terrorist suspect Osama bin Laden.
Boy, you're not kidding "One way or
the other, we've always got to chase our tails." -- Tony
Hypocrisy? In NASCAR? No way! "It's almost a hypocritical
situation here. The veterans were really the ones squalling about Dale
(Earnhardt) Jr. and me for the past three or four weeks over our driving
characteristics. I think last week Dale Jr. won the race and I finished
sixth, and I think the main topic was Ricky Rudd and Rusty Wallace.
'Rubberhead' and 'Conehead,' I think it was. ... I find that kind of
interesting. Obviously, NASCAR does not find that as 'detrimental to the
sport' as our situation." -- Kevin Harvick, at Kansas
Eternal optimist "We're having chassis, aero and motor
problems. Other than that, things are great." -- Ward Burton, at
Tell us how you really feel "The problem is you've got a young
kid who is trying to replace Dale Earnhardt, who thinks he is Dale
Earnhardt, and right now he wouldn't be a scab on Dale Earnhardt's butt." --
Bobby Hamilton, on Kevin Harvick Another new member of the fan club "The only thing I can say is that you can
do that and you race each other and you use a little class about it, or you
can kind of be like a bull in a china closet and just run over people.
He sort of chooses to do the second." -- Ricky Rudd, referring to Kevin
Aren't there laws against that? "Every time he drives a Cup
car, he's always chopping and hacking somebody." -- Sterling Marlin on Mike
Wallace, at Martinsville
Also, no water, and I think I see a
rattlesnake "Bottom line: We're out here in the damned desert blowing
tires." -- Kenny Wallace, at Phoenix
