However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman--already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet--who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital. After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. At the exit I asked him if his wife was meeting him. "I don't know," he said. "She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Consider the theatergoer who gets to his seat only to find that he's far away from the stage. He whispers to the usher, "This is a mystery play, and I have to watch a mystery close up. Get me a better seat, and I'll give you a handsome tip." The usher moves him into the second row, and the man hands the usher a quarter. The usher looks at the quarter, frowns at him, then leans over and whispers, "The wife did it." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Matthew James Phelps, 28, Raleigh, North Carolina Aspiring pastor arrested for murdering wife blames it on cough syrup A man in Raleigh, North Carolina, said that after he awoke from a dream early Friday morning, he found his wife dead on the floor and, as he told a 911 dispatcher, I think I did it. I have blood all over me, and there's a bloody knife on the bed. And I think I did it, Matthew James Phelps, an aspiring pastor, told the dispatcher. I can't believe this. I can't believe this. Phelps, who jail records list as 28 years old, blamed his alleged black out on cough syrup he took earlier in the evening to help him sleep. I took more medicine that I should have, he said. I took Coricidin Cough and Cold ... because I know it can make you feel good. A lot of times I can't sleep at night. Officers came to the couple's house and found Lauren Ashley- Nicole Phelps, 29, wounded but alive. The woman, who taught Sunday school, was taken to an area hospital where she died, according to the Associated Press. Her husband of almost a year was taken to the Wake County Jail and charged with murder. He remains behind bars and will make his first appearance before a judge on Tuesday, according to court records. On the 911 call, the dispatcher asked Matthew Phelps if he thought his wife was beyond help from her wounds. He replied: I don't know. I'm too scared to get close to her. Phelps worked for a lawn service company and was a graduate of Clear Creek Baptist Bible College in Kentucky, where he studied mission and evangelism, according to the Raleigh News & Observer, which cited his Facebook page. Phelps may be blaming cough syrup for the alleged murder, but investigators will be looking for other reasons for the woman's death, according to former FBI agent Brad Garrett. The "this medicine made me do it" excuse is a common way for people in his position to respond, Garrett told the AP. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dan Re: File Explorer Dear Webby, where do you find " windows file explorer"? dan Dear Dan Right-click on START select Open Windows EXPLORER Have FUN!

A Canadian man is told that he's being transferred from Toronto to Chicago. "It'll mean a big raise and more benefits," he tells a co-worker, "but I'll quit before I'll move there." "Why?" his friend asks. "I've seen all those movies," the man says. "I'm just too afraid of all the gangsters and crime there." "You ought to reconsider," the other man says. "Chicago is a magnificent city with world class museums, good public transportation, nice neighborhoods -- everything a person could want." Then he says, "I worked in Chicago for almost 10 years, and in all that time I never ever had a problem with crime while I was working." "What did you do there?" the first man asks. "I was tail-gunner on a bread truck."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Softening Butter You can soften butter quickly but putting it in the microwave for 10 seconds. If the butter is frozen, you may have to repeat this, but be careful not to microwave it for too long, it will quickly become liquid. If you have hard butter that you want to add to a something you are cooking, simply use a cheese grater, the grated butter will quickly melt.

____________________________________________________ A woman walks into the downtown welfare office, trailed by 15 kids. "WOW," the social worker exclaims,"are they ALL YOURS???" "Yep they are all mine," the flustered momma sighs, having heard that question a thousand times before. She says, "Sit down Leroy." All the children rush to find seats. "Well," says the social worker, "then you must be here to sign up. I'll need all your children's names." "This one's my oldest - he is Leroy." "OK, and who's next?" "Well, this one he is Leroy, also." The social worker raises an eyebrow but continues. One by one, through the oldest four, all boys, all named Leroy. Then she is introduced to the eldest girl, named Leighroy! "All right," says the caseworker. "I'm seeing a pattern here. Are they ALL named Leroy?" Their Momma replied, "Well, yes-it makes it easier. When it is time to get them out of bed and ready for school, I yell, 'Leroy!' An' when it's time for dinner, I just yell 'Leroy!' an' they all comes arunnin.' An' if I need to stop the kid who's running into the street, I just yell 'Leroy' and all of them stop. It's the smartest idea I ever had, namin' them all Leroy." The social worker thinks this over for a bit, then wrinkles her forehead and says tentatively, "But what if you just want ONE kid to come, and not the whole bunch?" "Then I calls them by their last names." __________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ A Kansas farm couple are sleeping early one morning when a tornado roars over their farmhouse. It lifts the roof off, picks up the bed the farmer and his wife are sleeping in and sets them down gently in the next county. The wife begins to cry. "Don't be scared, dear," her husband says. "We're not hurt." The woman continues to cry. "I'm not scared," she says between sobs. "I'm crying because I'm happy. This is the first time in 24 years we've been out together." ____________________________________________________
