    Friday chuckle

    A duck walks into a pub and orders a pint of beer and a ham sandwich. The barman looks at him and says, "Hang on! You're a duck." "I see your eyes are working," replies the duck. "And you can talk!," exclaims the barman. "I see your ears are working, too," says the duck. "Now...

    Painless dent repair

    Got a fairly deep dent in the door from either a car door or shopping cart when parked at the food store. Best estimate was $500-$700 by conventional methods. But the body shop suggested I use the fellow who does paintless dent repair for the dealership. He came out to the house and, slipping...

    According to the Service Manager at my Ford dealer, LoJack is kaput. The phone numbers on the literature are all disconnected. He helped me locate and disconnect the LoJack units in my 2 Mustangs (under the rear seat) and now the battery discharge problems are gone. I took one unit apart; it...

    For many years my cable provider, Wideopenwest, has provided an analog converter box feeding the televisions in our house. There was no restriction on the number of TVs you could hook up.

    So my wife used the Ford dealer installed remote starter on our 2011 Edge last night. I got in and without thinking put it in gear and started home. Got 8 miles before the ignition shut off, right in the middle of heavy traffic. Previous cars would immediately shut down until you put in the key...

    About puppies

    Alright you dog owners, is is normal for puppies (12 weeks old) to "wig out" and start growling and flipping their chew toys?

    Dear Abbey

    Dear Abby: My husband has a long record of money problems. He runs up huge debts and I am allowed no say in the matter. Also, he has been so arrogant toward our neighbors that most of them no longer speak to us. The few that do are a very odd bunch that I'm convinced stick around because he...

    Dog owners

    When did you first allow your dog free run of the house? My pup is 10 weeks old, is litter trained, and we keep him in a wire pen 10-feet by 6-feet when not directly supervised. But he's curious and chews on anything in sight, so I don't think he's ready to have access to the house.

    Two old guys

    Two old guys, one 80 and one 87, were sitting on their usual park bench one morning. The 87-year-old had just finished his morning jog and wasn't even short of breath. The 80-year-old was amazed at his friend's stamina and asked him what he did to have so much energy. The 87-year-old...

    Plumbing question

    Went to a plumbing supply house that caters to professional plumbers to buy a new faucet. The older fellow behind the counter commented that big box stores like Lowes and Home Depot sell "seconds" rather than prime merchandise. Anyone know if this is true, or was he just blowing smoke up my ass?

    Hey, dog owners....

    How long does a puppy go through the "chew everything in sight" stage? My little dog is 10 weeks old, and is a little chewing machine. He even attacks his own tail. Funnier than hell. Oops, wrong forum. Still getting used to Tapatalk.
