The  Editor:   What dangers are lurking around, LL ?

Danger Cat:  With two sets of laws, one for the rich and one for the poor it is dangerous to be out and about.  With a lot of laws not being enforced, thereby encouraging more and worse criminal activity, I sure hope people don’t turn into vigilantes.

Grandmother Approved

Even with a thousand games, dolls and crafts to choose from, my customer at the toy store still couldn’t find a thing for her grandson.

“Maybe a video or something educational?” I asked.

“No, that’s not it,” she said.

We wandered the aisles until something caught her eye, a laser gun with flashing lights and 15 different high-pitched sounds.

“This is perfect,” she said, beaming. “My daughter-in-law will hate it.”

Appreciation Problems

Store owner: “Thank you for your patronage. I wish I had twenty customers like you.”

Customer: “Gosh, it’s nice to hear that, but I’m kind of surprised. You know that I argue every bill and always pay late.”

Store owner: “I’d still like twenty customers like you. The problem is, I have two hundred customers like you.”

Grammar Kills

 The village blacksmith hired an enthusiastic new apprentice willing to work long, hard hours.

He instructed the boy, “When I take the shoe out of the fire, I’ll lay it on the anvil. When I nod my head, you hit it with the hammer.”

The apprentice did exactly as he was told, and now he’s the new village blacksmith.
