TOPIC:  Watermelon

I have to say that I do like watermelon.  Some say I'm crazy, but I know it's the most tasty when you sprinkle on some salt.  I know watermelon tastes yummy, but some flavors need little boost.  Some also say my food tastes are a little off the board, but I say if you don't like bacon-wrapped watermelon you're probably some sort of commie.

Grandchildren ...


After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair.


As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin.  At last she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings.


As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?"


... Labor ...


In 1914, Henry Ford doubled the daily wage for his factory workers

from $2.40 to $5.00

while cutting their daily work hours from nine to eight.
