  1. This old lady handed her bank card to the teller and said “I would like to withdraw $10”. The teller told her “for withdrawals less than $100, please use the ATM. The old lady wanted to know why... The teller returned her bank card and irritably told her “these are the rules, please leave if there is no further matter. There is a line of customers behind you”. The old lady remained silent for a few seconds and handed her card back to the teller and said “please help me withdraw all the money I have.” The teller was astonished when she checked the account balance. She nodded her head, leaned down and respectfully told her “you have $300,000 in your account but the bank doesn’t have that much cash currently. Could you make an appointment and come back again tomorrow? The old lady then asked how much she could withdraw immediately. The teller told her any amount up to $3000. “Well please let me have $3000 now.” The teller kindly handed $3000 very friendly and with a smile to her. The old lady put $10 in her purse and asked the teller to deposit $2990 back into her account. The moral of this story is.... Don’t be difficult with old people, they spent a lifetime learning the skill.
  2. Louisiana Highway Department employees stopped at a farm and talked with an old farmer. The man in charge told the farmer, 'We need to inspect your farm for a possible new road.' The old farmer said, 'OK, but don't get out in that pasture over there.' The Highway Dept. employee flashed out his identification card and said, 'I have the authority of the State of Louisiana to go anywhere I want. See this card? I will go wherever I wish.' So the old farmer went about his chores. It wasn't too much later when the farmer heard loud screams and yelling. He looked over and saw several Highway Department employees running for their lives and right behind was the farmer's huge prize bull. The bull was madder than a hornet's nest and was gaining on the Highway employees at every step. The old farmer yelled out, 'Show him your card, Smart Ass.... Show him your card!
  3. Good lord, if I whine about how many people just walked away from me without a word, or ghosted me or ignored me, I'd be a basket case...oh wait...nvm *winks*
  4. I am friggin' addicted to Nutmeg! I have to watch out otherwise I spend way too much there. But, I pick and choose the items I know I absolutely HAVE to have! Just got this and I love it!
  5. Good lord, it's from a movie....some people have absolutely no sense of humor. Lighten up *shakes my head and closes this out*
  6. Dear Ma and Pa: I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled. I was restless at first because you get to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m. But I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing. Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water. Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food, but tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. Their food, plus yours, holds you until noon when you get fed again. It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much. We go on "route marches," which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A "route march" is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks. The sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a lot. The Captain is like the school board. Majors and colonels just ride around and frown. They don't bother you none. This next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals for shooting. I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes. Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle with them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real easy. It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake . I only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm only 5'6" and 130 pounds and he's 6'8" and near 300 pounds dry. Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in. Your loving daughter, Alice
  7. It saddens me to hear this news. I remember when Ebbe came onboard and while I never had the opportunity to speak with him, I felt when I heard the news that he would do wonderful things for Second Life and I was happy that after all the negative stuff that happened with the CEO before him, it was indeed a breath of fresh air and wonderful things began to happen. I want to extend my condolences to his family and also his Linden family. My heart truly goes out to both of them and I wish them peace in the coming days, weeks and months to come. RIP Ebbe.
  8. I agree, it would have been nice if they had said goodbye but sometimes circumstances don't allow you to. Perhaps their internet went down, maybe they had to move, or couldn't afford their internet any longer, there are a lot of reasons why people leave without saying goodbye, the best you can do, is hope they are ok and will come back at some point in time. Life does get in the way. Just sayin'.
  9. Our computers went down at work today, so we had to do everything manually... It took me twenty minutes to shuffle the cards for solitaire.
  10. Also when you sit, make sure your AO is off, sometimes it overrides the sitting animation.
  11. A devoted wife had spent her lifetime taking care of her husband. When he was slipping in and out of a coma for several months, she stayed by his bedside every single day. When he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer. As she sat by him, he said, "You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. "When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you gave me support. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. "You know what?" "What, dear?" his wife asked gently. "I think you bring me bad luck."
  12. I got the strangest recording when I called the phone company the other day. It said, "You have been connected to the correct department on the first try. This is against company policy. Please hang up and redial."
  13. The longest drum solo was 10 hours and 26 minutes... And it was performed by the child sitting behind me on Delta flight 963 from LA to Tokyo.
  14. My very first car and it was old when I got it. 1974 Fiat Spider (not this one)
  15. A Texan was taking a taxi tour of London and was in a hurry. As they went by the Tower of London the cab driver explained what it was and that construction of it started in 1346 and was completed in 1412. The Texan replied, "Shoot, a little old tower like that? In Houston we'd have that thing up in two weeks!" Next they passed the House of Parliament - started in 1544 and completed in 1618. "Well boy, we put up a bigger one than that in Dallas and it only took a year!" As they passed Westminster Abbey the cab driver was silent. "Whoah! What's that over there?" asked the Texan. The driver replied, "I don't know, it wasn't there yesterday."
  16. I'm not one for using group chat a lot, but on occasion I have needed help with an item and the people in the groups were very helpful. As of yesterday, I can no longer use group chat, it opens, I post and it never comes up. I hope this does get fixed, as it will be hard for other that need to help on an item to get it, and it's so odd to be inworld and group chat NEVER pops up. Too quiet for me. LOL.
