A great idea for the Holiday Season – from Nancy Perryman Parris
If you go to this web site, www.letssaythanks.com
you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will
print it, and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in
but it will go to some member of the armed services. How AMAZING it would be if we could get
everyone we know to send one! This is a great site. Please send a card. It is FREE and it only
takes a second. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? No matter your
position on the war, our guys and gals over there need to know we are behind them.
(I did it, and it takes about 2 minutes. Surely you can spare 2 minutes. -Ed.)

TIPS FROM THE REDNECK BOOK OF MANNERS
from Smoke Signals etiquette editor Betty Jo
1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job
that should be done in private using one's OWN truck keys.
2. Proper use of toiletries can stall bathing for several days
. However, if you live alone,...deodorant is a waste of
good beer money.
3. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no,
as they tend to detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the
taste of finger foods.
WARNINGS TO WARRIORS – from Smoke Signals medical advisor Dr. Vinny Boombatz
Men, if you want to live long and prosper,.. well,… at least live
long, the Pacific Health Research
institute recommends avoiding these 9 mid-life risk factors.
1. Being overweight, a body-mass index of 25 or more. 2. High blood glucose levels, 3. High

Be Advised –These
Phishers, unlike Bobby Pleasants, actually catch something.
A couple of weeks ago a man ordered some documents from the US Government printing office.
The payment was put on his credit card through PayPal. It didn’t require him to open a PayPal
account; the money just flowed through them. Well, today, he received an email to “Dear PayPal
member” pretending to be from PayPal stating that they were confirming receipt of a payment on his
credit card for a document, that he didn’t order, from US Legal FormsThere was a link at the bottom
of the email to dispute the transaction. The email looked VERY LEGITIMATE
Since he didn’t order the document he clicked on
the link to dispute the transaction. For some
reason, he was unsuccessful in opening the link. He went directly to PayPal, calling them on the
phone. They advised him that he did not have a PayPal account and that the email was bogus.
They do not send out emails to “PayPal Member” – they always use the actual name on the account.
The link would have been to a site that would have gotten his credit card number. They also told him
to expect more of these, now that the ‘phishers’ have his email address.
THIS IS A TEST! from David Greenwood, who found 2 out of 3.
Two nearly identical pictures will appear on the
screen. Over 8000 people were tested to see if they
could find the 3 differences and only 19 were successful. See how observant you are. If you find all 3
differences, you are one of a very elite group of people. CLICK for fun in the Fjord

The lady with the
The one with the Doberman said, "Just watch, and do as I do."
They walked over to the bar and the one with the Doberman put on a pair of dark glasses
and started to walk in. The bouncer at the door said, "Sorry, lady, no pets allowed."
The woman with the Doberman said, "You don't understand. This is my seeing-eye dog."
The bouncer said, "A Doberman?"
The woman said, "Yes, they're using them now. They're very good."
The bouncer said, "OK, come on in."
The lady with the Chihuahua thought that convincing him that a Chihuahua was a seeing-eye
dog may be a bit more difficult, but thought, "What the heck," so she put on her dark |
glasses and started to walk in.
Once again the bouncer said, "Sorry, lady, no pets allowed."
The woman said, "You don't understand. This is my seeing-eye dog."

Nov. 17 – We find them, almost before they’re
week, we received an email from David
‘Peb’ Stone, inquiring into the whereabouts of William Sidney ‘Bill’ Dooley. According to Peb,
Dooley was in our class, but failed to graduate with us. A check of our resources showed little more
that a couple of yearbook entries, without the accompanying pictures. There was little to indicate
that he was even a member of the ’63 tribe. A few days later, we received an email from Mickey
Emmons, also asking about Dooley. Mickey wrote that, at one of our Grand Reunions he heard that
Dooley was living in
and set him on the trail. As a result, Bill was located, living in Elberta, Al.
