From My Window ... by I.C. Toowell
In March 11 Issue

Monday when the fiscal court was voting on the issue concerning the larger circulation, we were reminded of the old Lucky Strike cigarette commercial where the man says “I’d rather fight than switch...”

County Attorney Mark McGaha advised the fiscal court it would be in the county’s best interest to reverse their former motion and get themselves out of the middle of a legal question.

All the magistrates votes “yes” they certainly agreed the county should not be in a lawsuit and as Magistrate Greg Popplewell stated....”here is a easy way out.

As a role call vote was made, all magistrates voted yes but Mickey Garner voted that time I was expecting to see Garner pull his Lucky Strike out and lite up. But then I rememnered there is no smoking in the courthouse.


An older couple is lying in bed one morning, having just awakened from a good night's sleep. He takes her hand and she responds, "Don't touch me."

"Why not?" he asks.

She answers back, "Because I'm dead."

The husband says, "What are you talking about? We're both lying here in bed together and talking to one another."

She says, "No, I'm definitely dead."

He insists, "You're not dead. What in the world makes you think you're dead?"

"Because I woke up this morning and nothing hurts."

-- Everyone has a photographic memory. Some, like me, just don't have any film.

-- I always know God won't give me more than I can handle but there are times I wish He didn't trust me quite so much.

-- Never be too open minded, your brains could fall out.

-- Just going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

-- If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.

-- Some days are a total waste of makeup.

-- Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places.

-- Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.

-- Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.

-- Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.

-- By the time you can make ends meet, they move the ends.

-- Learn from the mistakes of others. Trust me .... you can't live long enough to make them all yourself. I've tried!!

Church Social

Our minister announced that admission to a church social event would be six dollars per person.

"However, if you're over 65," he said, "the price will be only $5.50."

 From the back of the congregation, a woman's voice rang out, "Do you  really think I'd give you that information for only fifty cents?"


The Top Internet Commandments

12. Thou shalt not downloadeth porn on thine work computer, lest ye be cast out.

11. Thou shalt *** EARN *** REDEMPTION *** FAST!!!! ***

10. Thou shalt not make for yourself a graven image of that which is copyrighted.

9. Thou shalt not pop up any unwanted windows before me, for I shall smite them immediately with a hasty click and read them not.

8. Thou shalt use no browser other than Internet Explorer, for thy Gates is a jealous Gates.

7. Thou shalt not forward chain letters. Instead, send these commandments to ten friends, and help save the life of a small child in Bogota!

6. Thou shalt not act like a hot 18-year chick in a chat room when thou art a pudgy, pimply-faced Trekkie.

5. Spam not, lest ye be spammed tenfold.

4. Thou shalt not spill your kinky guts and then click "Reply to all."

3. Thou shall not call thyself "Richard P. Smith" online when "Chesty LaRue" sounds so much better.

2. Remember the cookie recipe and keep it holy.

1. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife - and thou shalt rejoice in the loophole that Tommy Lee is technically not thy neighbor.
