EAGLES on shore of Lake Erie….‏

January of this year, 2013, the weather stayed so cold in Hinckley, Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie & Rocky River. that the bald eagles were cruising over houses in hopes of a quick meal. They could not access fish that were at the bottom of the river and had gathered together.

Some kind souls decided to feed the eagles so they would survive the cold spell.
They gathered fish and started feeding the group of eagles huddled on the shore.

The photos below show what happened. A friend  took these photos in front of his home.
Incredible!

Feeding the Eagles!

Once the fish were thrown, the eagles did not seem to fear the good Samaritans and word spread fast!

I didn’t know this about Las Vegas

Do Las Vegas Churches accept  gambling chips?

THIS MAY COME AS A SURPRISE TO THOSE  OF YOU NOT LIVING IN LAS VEGAS,

BUT THERE ARE MORE CATHOLIC CHURCHES  THAN CASINOS.

NOT SURPRISINGLY, SOME WORSHIPERS AT  SUNDAY SERVICES WILL GIVE CASINO CHIPS RATHER THAN CASH WHEN  THE BASKET IS PASSED.

SINCE THEY GET CHIPS FROM MANY  DIFFERENT CASINOS, THE CHURCHES HAVE DEVISED A METHOD TO  COLLECT THE OFFERINGS.

THE CHURCHES SEND ALL THEIR  COLLECTED CHIPS TO A NEARBY FRANCISCAN MONASTERY FOR SORTING  AND THEN THE CHIPS ARE TAKEN TO THE CASINOS OF ORIGIN AND  CASHED IN.

Cop Story

Story from a Kansas State Highway Patrol officer:

I made a traffic stop on an elderly lady the other day for speeding on U.S. 166 Eastbound at Mile Marker 73 just East of Sedan, KS.

Cop StoryI asked for her driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance.

The lady took out the required information and handed it to me.

In with the cards I was somewhat surprised (due to her advanced age) to see she had a conceal carry permit. I looked at her and ask if she had a weapon in her possession at this time.

She responded that she indeed had a .45 automatic in her glove box.

Something—body language, or the way she said it—made me want to ask if she had any other firearms.

She did admit to also having a 9mm Glock in her center console.

Now I had to ask one more time if that was all.

She responded once again that she did have just one more, a .38 special in her purse.

I then asked her what was she so afraid of.

She looked me right in the eye and said, “Not a friggin’ thing!”

On Getting Older

As I was lying around, pondering the problems of the world,

I realized that at my age I don’t really give a rat’s ass anymore.

.. If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.

.. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, but is still fat.

.. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years, while

.. A tortoise doesn’t run and does mostly nothing, yet it lives for 150 years.

And you tell me to exercise?? I don’t think so.

Just grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked,

the good fortune to remember the ones I do, and the

eyesight to tell the difference.

Now that I’m older here’s what I’ve discovered:

1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

2. My wild oats are mostly enjoyed with prunes and all-bran.

3. I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.

4. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

5. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

6. If all is not lost, then where the heck is it ?

7. It was a whole lot easier to get older, than to get wiser.

8. Some days, you’re the top dog; some days you’re the hydrant.

9. I wish the buck really did stop here; I sure could use a few of them.

10. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.

11. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.

12. It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.

13. The world only beats a path to your door when you’re in the bathroom.

14. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees.

15. When I’m finally holding all the right cards, everyone wants to play chess.

16. It’s not hard to meet expenses . . . they’re everywhere.

17. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

18. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter . . .I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I’m “here after”.

19. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

20. HAVE I SENT THIS MESSAGE TO YOU BEFORE……….??????

Possibly a New Species

Possibly a New Species001

They are referred to as “homo slackass-erectus” created by natural genetic downward evolution through constant spineless posturing and spasmodic upper limb gestures, which new research has shown to cause shorter legs and an inability to ambulate other than in an awkward shuffling gait.  The “drag-crotch” shape also seems to effect brain function.  Expect no eye contact or intelligent verbal communication.  History shows that this species mostly receives food stamps and full government care.  Unfortunately most are highly fertile.
