The Day I Saved the Frogs

 .

.

.

When I was in high school in Yorktown Heights I was not doing well in science. The teacher offered us a chance to earn extra credits if we brought in a large frog. I went to a local marshy area and caught a huge bull frog. The next day I brought it to school where it was placed in a large tank with water and rocks. There were about six other frogs in the tank. I was proud that mine was the biggest.


Later, near the end of class, the teacher mentioned that we were going to dissect the frogs and see their beating hearts! I almost fainted with horror. It was all I could think about. When the class ended I waited to talk to the teacher to ask for my frog back. While I was standing there another girl in the class drew me aside. She was Pam Panta, the daughter of the earth science teacher. She told me it wouldn't do any good to ask for my frog. I wouldn't get it back. 


So we cooked up a scheme to rescue all the frogs. I got my big bucket and we broke into the empty classroom and put all the frogs in the bucket. We we nervous about being caught, but somehow we got the frogs out of the school without anyone catching us. I took the frogs back to the marshy area and set them all free. It was the best feeling seeing them hop and plop back into the water.


The next day Pam and I tried to look innocent and normal. The science teacher was furious the frogs were gone. He knew someone had taken them. He knew it was me. Either I looked guilty, or he had seen how horrified I was the day before. After class he told me that if I didn't bring the frogs back he was going to fail me. I tried to lie and act innocent, but I'm not good at that. I never mentioned Pam, and he didn't suspect her because she was a teacher's daughter and we didn't hang out together routinely.


Sure enough he failed me. He threatened to have me prosecuted for theft, but he only failed me. I had to take the class again in summer school. We never did dissect live frogs, just horrible pickled frogs in formaldehyde. They smelled horrible. I didn't see the point in doing it. But we cut the dead frogs up and labeled the body parts. It was disgusting.


But still, I had a happy feeling inside knowing that my bull frog, and the other frogs, were out there in the wild. Happy in the marsh.

Ƹ*_*Ʒ. - The Diet

A woman is terribly overweight, so her doctor put her on a diet. "I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. The next time I see you, you'll have lost at least 5 pounds." 

When the woman returned, she shocked the doctor by losing nearly 20 pounds. 

"Why, that's amazing!" the doctor said, "Did you follow my instructions?" 

The woman nodded... "I'll tell you though, I thought I was going to drop dead that 3rd day." 

"From hunger, you mean?", asked the doctor." 

"No, from skipping."

My daughter and I went through the McDonald's driveway window and I gave the cashier a $5 bill.

 Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her 25c.

 She said, 'you gave me too much money.'

 I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar coin back.'

 She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request.

 I did so, and he handed me back the 25c, and said 'We're sorry but we don't do that kind of thing.'

 The cashier then proceeded to give me back 75 cents in change.

 Do not confuse the people at MacD's.

We had to have the garage door repaired.

 The repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.

 I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.

 He shook his head and said, 'You need a 1/4 horsepower.'

 I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, 'NOOO, it's not. Four is larger than two.'

 We haven't used that repairman since...

One of my favorite jokes:

During a service at an old synagogue in Eastern Europe, when a particular prayer was said, half the congregants stood up and half remained sitting. The half that was seated started yelling at those standing to sit down, and the ones standing yelled at the ones sitting to stand up. The new rabbi, learned as he was in the Law and commentaries, didn't know what to do. His congregation suggested that he consult a housebound 98-year-old man who was one of the original founders of their shul. The rabbi hoped the elderly man would be able to tell him what the actual tradition was, so he went to the nursing home with a representative of each faction of the congregation.

The one whose followers stood during the prayer asked the old man, "Is the tradition to stand during this prayer?"

The old man answered, "No, that is not the tradition."

The one whose followers sat said, "Then the tradition is to sit!"

The old man answered, "No, that is not the tradition."

Then the rabbi said to the old man, "But the congregants fight all the time, yelling at each other about whether they should sit or stand."

The old man interrupted, exclaiming, "THAT is the tradition!"

SIREN CALL



As I crouched in darkness, lost and savage

In the Void, the Dark Abyss

Art reached out with invisible power 

And woke me up with a lover's kiss



I followed the music into the night

Expressed my rage and pulsing pain

Instead of defeat I was ready to fight 

To get back my life again



Years have passed, my heart has healed 

I'm no longer filled with strife

But I remember every day

How art came and saved my life



Bless the artists, bold and loud

Who never ever knew

How their music was the siren call

To rise and see life through

But  howling wind and  empty black night.

A defendant in a lawsuit involving large sums of money was talking to his lawyer. "If I lose this case, I'll be ruined." 

"It's in the judge's hands now," said the lawyer. 

"Would it help if I sent the judge a box of cigars?" 

"Oh no! This judge is a stickler or ethical behavior. A stunt like that would prejudice him against you. 

He might even hold you in contempt of court. In fact, you shouldn't even smile at the judge."

Within the course of time, the judge rendered a decision in favor of the defendant.

As the defendant left the courthouse, he said to his lawyer, "Thanks for the tip about the cigars. It worked!" 

"I'm sure we would have lost the case if you'd sent them." "

But, I did send them." 

What? You did?" said the lawyer, incredulously. 

"Yes. That's how we won the case." 

"I don't understand," said the lawyer. 

"It's easy. I sent the cigars to the judge, but enclosed the plaintiff's business card."

It's so good to finally get a health warning that is useful!!!

IT INVOLVES THE SHAMPOO WHEN IT RUNS DOWN YOUR BODY WHEN YOU SHOWER WITH IT. WARNING TO US ALL!!! Shampoo Warning!

I don't know WHY I didn't figure this out sooner! I use shampoo in the shower! When I wash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body, and printed very clearly on the shampoo label this warning; "FOR EXTRA BODY AND VOLUME."

No wonder I have been gaining weight!

Well! I got rid of that shampoo and I am going to start showering with Dawn Dishwashing Soap. It's label reads, "DISSOLVES FAT THAT IS OTHERWISE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE."

Four college friends were so confident that the weekend before finals, they decided to go up to Dallas and party with some friends up there. 

They had a great time. However, after all the partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn't make it back to Austin until early Monday morning.

Rather than taking the final then, they decided to find their professor after the final and explain to him why they missed it.

They explained that they had gone to Dallas for the weekend with the plan to come back and study but, unfortunately, 

they had a flat tire on the way back, didn't have a spare, and couldn't get help for a long time. 

As a result, they missed the final.

The Professor thought it over and then agreed they could make up the final the following day. The guys were elated and relieved.

They studied that night and went in the next day at the time the professor had told them. 

He placed them in separate rooms and handed each of them a test booklet, and told them to begin.

They looked at the first problem, worth 5 points. It was something simple about free radical formation. 

"Cool," they thought at the same time, each one in his separate room. "This is going to be easy."

Each finished the problem and then turned the page. On the second page was written:

(For 95 points): Which tire?

CAN A CLOUD HAVE A BAD SHAPE?


I wish you were not in peril

I wish you weren't hoping to die

Don't you see the same clouds as I do

When you look up into the sky?



How majestically they pass over

Leaving the sky clear and blue

They won't ever darken and hover

To constantly pour rain on you



We will wait, precious friend, for that moment

When the clouds in your life float on by

They're a promise and not a bad omen

There's no need for you to die



There's a difference between broke and broken

Between grief and fatal despair

Let the clouds be our bond and our token

Of the good times ahead we can share.

Driven nearly mad and bad

Trying to prove them right

The innocent sacrifice

The most intelligent of the angels

He was the one who paid the price.

Report Card

A father passing by his teenage daughter's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was neat and tidy.

Then he saw an envelope propped up prominently on the center of the pillow. It was addressed "Dad". With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands:-

Dear Dad,

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you, but I'm leaving home. I had to elope with my new boyfriend Randy because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you.

I've been finding real passion with Randy and he is so nice to me. I know when you meet him you'll like him too - even with all his piercing, tattoos, and motorcycle clothes. But it's not only the passion Dad, I'm pregnant and Randy said that he wants me to have the kid and that we can be very happy together.

Even though Randy is much older than me (anyway, 42 isn't so old these days is it? ), and has no money, really these things shouldn't stand in the way of our relationship, don't you agree?

Randy has a great CD collection; he already owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. It's true he has other girlfriends as well but I know he'll be faithful to me in his own way. He wants to have many more children with me and that's now one of my dreams too.

Randy taught me that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone and he'll be growing it for us and we'll trade it with our friends for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Randy can get better; he sure deserves it!!

Don't worry Dad, I'm 15 years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure we'll be back to visit so you can get to know your grandchildren.

Your loving daughter,

Rosie.

At the bottom of the page were the letters " PTO".

Hands still trembling, her father turned the sheet over and read:

PS:

Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at the neighbor's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than my report card that's in my desk center drawer. Please sign it and call when it is safe for me to come home.

I love you!

Your loving daughter,

Rosie

Poem I wrote:
SPIRIT IN THE BRANCHES
It was a ghost not a spirit
I saw rise from the ground
In the old cemetery
At the edge of my town
I knew the difference
Between the two
A ghost is a memory
A spirit is new
New and still shining
With the life force inside
I once saw a spirit
Someone had just died
They died in a car wreck
From what I could see
That poor little spirit
Clung high up in a tree
I cried and I prayed
For that spirit to rise
To go to the light
Then I just dried my eyes
I don't know where
I don't know when
I just prayed for that spirit
To go home again
A ghost is a memory
Like an old film you see
But a spirit has Light
And can cling to a tree

(*_*) - Texas Cowboy

A cowboy, who just moved to Wyoming from Texas , walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. 

The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You know, a mug goes flat after I draw it. It would taste better if you bought one at a time." 

The cowboy replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in Arizona , the other is in Colorado . When we all left our home in Texas , we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I'm drinking one beer for each of my brothers and one for myself." 

The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. 

The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way. He orders three mugs and drinks them in turn. 

One day, he comes in and only orders two mugs. All the regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss." 

The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eyes and he laughs. 

"Oh, no, everybody's just fine," he explains, "It's just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking."

"Hasn't affected my brothers though."
