For That Someone Special...

Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet,
and so are you.
But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead,
the sugar bowl's empty and so is your head.

After you, my love, my only prize
Would be a bullet between your eyes

Of loving beauty you float with grace
If only you could hide your face

I thought that I could love no other
Until, that is, I met your brother

Kind, intelligent, loving and hot
This describes everything you're not

I want to feel your sweet embrace
But don't take that paper bag off of your face

I love your smile, your face, and your eyes --
Damn, I'm good at telling lies!

Every time I see your face
I wish I were in outer space

I saw your face as you walked by
but then I saw a better guy

My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife:
Marrying you screwed up my life

Beauty is on the inside, but some may doubt,
If it's true, I'd prefer you inside out.

What inspired this amorous rhyme?
Two parts vodka, one part lime

I see your face when I am dreaming
That's why I always wake up screaming

My love you take my breath away
What have you stepped in to smell this way

My feelings for you no words can tell
Except for maybe "go to hell"





JETER PURSUER DRAGGED TO COURT

A woman who was arrested for running onto the Yankee Stadium
infield to hand superstar Derek Jeter a note, was dragged by
police from the luxury store where she works for skipping a
court date. Kristielee Wilcox said she was worried about get-
ting fired for being handcuffed and escorted out of Bergdorf
Goodman on Monday. On opening day, April 5, Wilcox -- a make-
up artist -- used a lip-liner to scrawl her phone number on-
to a piece of paper that she ran -- shoeless -- to Jeter's
place in the infield. Jeter covered his face with his glove,
presumably to conceal his laughter, as guards chased Wilcox
around the field. She finally was apprehended and spent the
night in jail.





I'm Sorry to see this story come out.

VAN HALEN, VALERIE SPLIT AFTER 21 YEARS

Rocker Eddie Van Halen and actress Valerie Bertinelli man-
aged to stay together for 21 years, despite Eddie's battle
with alcoholism -- until now. There have been rumors of a
split for years, but now the couple -- he's 47 and she's
42 -- are finally calling it quits. Van Halen and Bertinelli,
who starred in the TV series "One Day At A Time," have one son.





Tillis Will Shutter Branson Theater

The Associated Press reports that Mel Tillis has sold his
theater in Branson, Mo. The country star announced the
sale of his 2,600-seat venue and 13 acres of land on
Wednesday (July 10). He will perform 135 more shows there,
through New Year's Eve, then he plans to write songs,
record with his band, the Statesiders, and make a
Christmas album with his family. Tillis has been a main-
stay of the Branson scene since 1990. He built the
theater he sold this week in 1994. The new owner will
lease the theater to the Tri-Lakes Assembly of God, to
be used as a church. Sale price was not disclosed.
Tillis will split time between homes in Branson,
Tennessee and Florida.





A blonde was down on her luck. In order to raise some money, she decided to
kidnap a kid and hold him for ransom. She went to the playground, grabbed a
kid, took him behind a tree, and told him, "I've kidnapped you." She then
wrote a note saying, "I've kidnapped your kid. Tomorrow morning, put $10,000
in a paper bag and put it under the pecan tree next to the slide on the
North side of the playground.

Signed,
A Blonde."

The Blonde then pinned the note to the kid's shirt and sent him home to show
it to his parents.

The next morning the blonde checked, and sure enough, a paper bag was
sitting beneath the pecan tree. The Blonde opened the bag and found the
$10,000 with a note that said, "How could you do this to a fellow Blonde?"


yup, that was me.



A real-estate agent was driving around with a new trainee when she
spotted a charming little farmhouse with a hand-lettered "For Sale"
sign out front.

After briskly introducing herself and her associate to the startled
occupant, the agent cruised from room to room, opening closets and
cupboards, testing faucets and pointing out where a "new light
fixture here and a little paint there" would help. Pleased with her
assertiveness, the woman was hopeful that the owner would offer her
the listing.

"Ma'am," the man said, "I appreciate the home-improvement tips and
all, but I think you read my sign wrong. It says, "HORSE for sale."





This one is worth repeting, David 1


All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down
the aisle. They reached the altar and the waiting groom; the bride
kissed her father and placed something in his hand.

The guests in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter.
Even the priest smiled broadly.

As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his
credit card.





Recently I was in a restaurant having breakfast.

A woman came in and said she needed to get a
"to-go order." She said she was in a hurry because
she had to get online and talk . . . "to her AOL friends."
(She actually said those very words.)

She then ordered eggs, potatoes, and toast.  When asked
if she wanted bacon, she replied, "No, I don't eat pork.
But I would like a double order of sausages, please."





Today's thought is: 020713
Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living and your belief
will help create the fact.
-William James

Many adult children learn that rejection and abandonment are part and
parcel of being alive. We are so used to feeling as though things won't
work out, that fear-like a shadow-is always lurking behind us.
Usually there's something specific to be afraid of-that we won't have
enough money to pay our bills, someone we love will die, or our
children won't do well in school. And always there's the generalized
fear that events will overwhelm us in spite of our best efforts.

We need to be careful about creating what we look for. Regardless of
the frightening experiences of the past, we need to believe that other
results are possible: All loved ones don't leave, all risks don't end in
devastation, and all efforts aren't dashed on the rocks of defeat.

New consequences are possible when we believe they're possible. The
brave new world that each of us seeks stands on the shoulders of that
belief.

I am sick and tired of being fearful. Today, I am confident that positive
efforts will yield positive  results.

And the Criminals Keep Getting Dumber... ----------

CINCINNATI, Ohio - In addition to having to worry about car
accidents, distractions, and children fighting, drivers also
need to be aware of carjackers. In Cincinnati, two carjackers
jumped into a woman's car and demanded all of her cash. Which
amounted to about $8. So the woman cleverly offered to stop
at the supermarket and cash a check for them. Only, instead
of filling out the check, she wrote "call police" on the
document, and the cashier immediately notified authorities.
According to police, the men were caught in the shop's park-
ing lot and have been charged with kidnapping and robbery.





Six Japanese schoolchildren have been banned from a judo
tournament for plucking their eyebrows.

The boy and five girls were punished by Tochigi Prefecture's
junior high school sports federation. Officials say tournament
rules ban plucked or shaved eyebrows.

Head of the federation, Tatsuo Kakizaki, said, "Judo is a sport
that places enormous importance on manners and thin eyebrows
create an unpleasant image.

Dyed or tinted hair, piercing and even hair ribbons are also forbidden.

  HERE'S SOME INSIGHT ON US OKLAHOMANS!!!!
  THINGS I HAVE LEARNED ABOUT OKLAHOMA..........!

Armadillos sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.

There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in Oklahoma.

There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Oklahoma, plus a
couple no one's seen before.

Possums will eat anything.

Armadillos love to dig holes under tomato plants.

Raccoons will test your crop of melons and let you know when they are
ripe.

If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.

Nothing will kill a mesquite tree.

There are valid reasons some people put razor wire around their house.

A tractor is NOT an all-terrain vehicle. They do get stuck.

The wind blows at 90 mph from October 2 until June 25, then it stops
totally until October 2.

Onced and twiced are words.

Coldbeer is one word.

People actually grow and eat okra.

Green grass DOES burn.

When you live in the country, you don't have to buy a dog. City people
drop them off at your gate in the middle of the night.

The sound of coyotes howling at night only sounds good for the first
couple of weeks.

When a buzzard sits on the fence and stares at you,it's time to go to
the doctor.

Fix-in-to is one word.

A tank is a dirt hole in the ground that holds water for irrigation,
watterin' the cows, or swimming.

There ain't no such thing as "lunch". There's only dinner and then
there's supper.

Tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're
two.

Backwards and forwards means I know everything about you.

'Jeet? is actually a phrase meaning, "Did you eat?"

You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it
is.

You work until you're done or it's too dark to see.





My brother is a computer systems administrator.
He is dedicated to his job and works long
hours, rarely taking time off for meals. One
afternoon, He was overwhelmed with solving
computer network problems, so I decided to
deliver a meal for him to eat at his
workstation.
When I was getting ready to leave, I said
good-bye and reminded him to eat his burger
and fries while they were still warm.
Staring at his monitor, he waved me away.
"Don't worry," he said, obviously distracted,
"I'll delete them in a few minutes."





A police officer in a small town stopped
a motorist who was speeding down Main Street.
"But officer." the man began, "I can explain".
"Just be quiet," snapped the officer. "I'm
going to let you cool your heels in jail
until the chief gets back..."
"But officer, I just wanted to say...."
"And I said to keep quiet! You're going to
jail!"
A few hours later the officer looked in on
his prisoner and said, "Lucky for you that
the chief is at his daughter's wedding.
He'll be in a good mood when he gets back."
"Don't count on it," answered the fellow in
the cell. "I'm the groom."





Reaching the end of a job interview, the
Human Resources Person asked a young
Engineer fresh out of MIT, "And what
starting salary were you looking for?"
The Engineer said, "In the neighbourhood
of $125,000 a year, depending on the
benefits package."
The interviewer said, "Well, what would
you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation,
14 paid holidays, full medical and dental,
company matching retirement fund to 50% of
salary, and a company car leased every 2
years say, a red Corvette?"
The Engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow!
Are you kidding?"
And the interviewer replied, "Yeah, but you started it."
