From My Window ... by I.C. Toowell
In July 29 Issue

We were at the post office today and a friend was telling he had lost his cell phone. We were thinking of some of the phones we have lost in the past and thought maybe we could help him find his.

One of our lost ones was found hiding in the pantry right behind the peanut butter jar. Then there was the one in the refrigerator in the meat drawer. There was the one in the shirt pocket, the only thing is, the shirt had just completed all the cycles in the mighty washing machine. He might want to check the commode and of course there was the one we found at all four corners of the Junction of Hwy 80 and 127, that one was taking a ride on  the top of the car.

Just can’t understand the dang phones sometimes, they have a mind of their own and take some very unscheduled trips and tricks. Those cell phones always take a trip before the contract is renewable.


An elderly couple are attending church services.

About halfway through, the wife writes a note and hands it to her husband.

It says, "I just let out a little silent gas, what do you think I should do?"

He scribbles back , "Put a new battery in your hearing aid.."

An elderly couple were killed in an accident and found themselves being given a tour of heaven by Saint Peter. "Here is your oceanside condo, over there are the tennis courts, swimming pool, and two golf courses. If you need any refreshments, just stop by any of the many bars located throughout the area."

"Heck, Gloria," the old man hissed when Saint Peter walked off, "we could have been here ten years ago if you hadn't heard about all that stupid oat bran, wheat germ, and low-fat diets!"


When you hear this announcement, it is time to hit the road.

"This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. If this had been an actual emergency, do you really think we'd stick around to tell you?"


A guy in a restaurant says to the waitress "I want a cup of coffee without cream." The waitress comes back a few minutes later and says "I'm sorry, but we're all out of cream. Would you mind taking your coffee without milk?"
