HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD AND DON'T MOVE FAST
ANYMORE


I do so love the application of simple logic in solving a problem!

George Phillips, an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up
to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden
shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back
door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed
stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked 'Is someone in your house?' He said 'No,'
but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me'.
Then the police dispatcher said 'All patrols are busy. You should lock
your doors and an officer will be along when one is available.'

George said, 'Okay.' He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he
phoned the police again.

'Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people
stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now
because I just shot them.' and he hung up.


Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire
Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips'
residence, and caught the burglars red-handed. One of the Policemen said
to George, 'I thought you said that you'd shot them!'

George said, 'I thought you said there was nobody available!'

(True Story) I LOVE IT! Don't mess with old people.

Here is another Rube-esque something!

DUTCH DEPARTMENT STORE

HEMA is a Dutch department store. The first store opened on November 4, 1926, in Amsterdam. Now there are 150 stores all over the Netherlands. Take a look at HEMA's product page. You can't order anything; just wait a couple of seconds and watch what happens. Don't click on any of the products pictured, just wait and see what happens. Have your sound turned up. This company has a sense of humour and a great computer programmer.

Something for the season... Remember those cartoon scenes where you know something is tunneling underground by the collapsing trail it leaves? Just watch... Snow Dog

I was sent an actual copy of the following slideshow, but managed to find a link to an on-line version.
Slideshow

I suspect that some of the Guild of Writers might be able to find inspiration from a few of these shots. smile.gif
I know that I wouldn't care to try that last bicycle trail! shock.gif

Yes, and the rider is "bouncing" the front wheel on it! shock.gif Nope, definitely wouldn't want to ride on that trail, and would probably want safety ropes between people if hiking! Many of those rock ledges looked unstable. unsure.gif

I doubt I would even be able to walk on it! No way, for sure, on that wooden plank thing stuck to the rock face!
