My post today will be filled with stuff my friends have sent me:
First, another joke from Chris Eccles:
Two Mainers are hunting in the woods. Suddenly one of them turns blue and collapses. The other hunter panics and calls 911 on his cellphone. "Help! I'm alone in the woods and I think my friend has collapsed and died!" he says. "Keep calm sir," replies the operator, " the first thing we need to do is to make sure he is really dead." There is a short pause, then two gunshots. "Yes, I've made sure, now what do I do?"
A brain exercise from Lisa Raspopovich:
Are you smarter than a 5th grader ??
Try this for brain exercise.
This is a 5th grade math problem. This is not a trick question.This is a real math problem so don't say that a bus has no legs.
The bus driver is not part of the equation.
There are 7 girls in a bus.
Each girl has 7 backpacks.
In each backpack, there are 7 big cats.
For every big cat there are 7 little cats.
Question: How many legs are there on the bus?
And, finally, Elizabeth Applebaum shares with us drama from her work day yesterday:
Watch CNN for details of my day today. Directly behind the building where I work are a bunch of homes for senior citizens. One caught fire today (nobody was hurt) and was almost completely destroyed. All the residents were taken out of the building (some by ladders, from their rooms on the third floor). I've never seen anything like it - helicopters are all overhead, there are at least two dozen ambulances and police cars, and the entire street was closed. We've been asked to stay available to help push wheelchairs and our whole building smells of smoke - so now it's on CNN. I often walk at lunch around those very homes.
Thank you all for donating the material for my post today so I can get out to the water park early before the crowds hit. :)
