An oldie but goodie....

A Priest was about to finish his tour of duty...and was leaving his
Mission in the jungle where he has spent years teaching the natives......

When he realizes that the one thing he never taught them was how to
speak English......

So he takes the chief for a walk in the forest....He points to a tree
and says to the chief... "This is a tree"......

The chief looks at the tree and grunts......"Tree".....

The Priest is pleased with the response.... They walk a little further
and he points to a rock and says..."This is a rock".....

Hearing this.... the chief looks and grunts....."'Rock".....

The Priest was really getting enthusiastic about the results when he
hears a rustling in the bushes..... As they peek over the top.... he
sees a couple of natives in the midst of heavy sexual activity....

The Priest is really flustered and quickly responds..."Man riding a
bike"......

The chief looks at the couple briefly.... pulls out his blowpipe and
kills them both.....

The Priest goes ballistic and yells at the chief that he has spent years
teaching the tribe how to be civilized.... and be kind to each
other....so how could he kill these people in cold blood that
way???..........

The chief replied........"My Bike"

Yesterday I had an appointment to see the urologist for a prostate exam. Of course I was a bit on edge because all my friends have either gone under the knife or had those pellets implanted.

The waiting room was filled with patients.

As I approached the receptionist’s desk, I noticed that she was a large, not-very-friendly-looking woman who resembled a Sumo wrestler.

I gave her my name, and in a very loud voice, she said,

“YES, I HAVE YOUR NAME HERE. YOU WANT TO SEE THE

DOCTOR ABOUT IMPOTENCE, RIGHT?”

All the patients in the waiting room snapped their heads around to look at me, now a very embarrassed man. But as usual,

I recovered quickly, and in an equally loud voice replied,

“NO, I’VE COME TO INQUIRE ABOUT A SEX CHANGE

OPERATION, BUT I DON’T WANT THE SAME DOCTOR

THAT DID YOURS.”

The room erupted in applause!

An Arizona Highway Patrol officer stops a Harley for traveling faster than the posted speed limit, so he asks the biker his name.
'Fred,' he replies.

'Fred what?' the officer asks.

'Just Fred,' the man responds.

The officer is in a good mood, thinks he might just give the biker a break, and write him out a warning instead of a ticket. The officer then presses him for the last name.

The man tells him that he used to have a last name but lost it.

The officer thinks that he has a nut case on his hands but plays along with it. 'Tell me, Fred, how did you lose your last name?'

The biker replies, 'It's a long story, so stay with me.' I was born Fred Johnson. I studied hard and got good grades. When I got older, I realized that I wanted to be a doctor. I went through college, medical school, internship, residency, and finally got my degree, so I was Fred Johnson, MD. After a while I got bored being a doctor, so I decided to go back to school. Dentistry was my dream! Got all the way through school, got my degree, so then I was Fred Johnson, MD, DDS. Got bored doing dentistry, so I started fooling around with my assistant and she gave me VD, so now I was Fred Johnson, MD, DDS, with VD.

Well, the ADA found out about the VD, so they took away my DDS. Then I was Fred Johnson, MD, with VD. Then the AMA found out about the ADA taking away my DDS because of the VD, so they took away my MD leaving me as Fred Johnson with VD. Then the VD took away my Johnson, so now I am Just Fred.'

The officer walked away in tears, laughing.

Silence (now). From about 0000Z (UTC) Friday (5pm local time) until roughly 2400Z today, I was listening to almost nonstop Amateur Radio RTTY (Radioteletype) sounds as I participated in a RTTY contest (my 1st one - I've participated in other types of radiosport before, but not this).

I only made 76 contacts in that time frame, but for my first contest of this type, I don't think that's too bad.

My cousin just called and asked if I would loan her $300.00 to help her pay her rent.
Those who know me, know that I'm always willing to help out friends and family. I told her to give me some time to think about it and I would call her back.
Before I called her back, my aunt called and told me that my cousin was lying and not to give her the money.
She goes on to say that the real reason my cousin wanted the $300.00 was to get her boyfriend out of jail so she could be under the same roof as him for his birthday.
I thought about it for a minute and decided to give her the $300.00 because we all need help at times.
So, I called my cousin and told her to come and get the money.
A couple of hours later, I get a call from the Yavapai County jail.
It was my cousin crying, screaming and asking why I gave her counterfeit money.

My response...so you and your boyfriend could be under the same roof for his birthday!

"Danger, Will Robinson"

I have a little miniature version of the robot that says that when you press his head, plus Warning, warning!, and This does not compute!

This robot toy, right? https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71ZVteBxAzL._SX466_.jpg

Finishing off Season 1 of the Netflix version of "Lost in Space".

I need to get a free trial subscription of Netflix so I can watch that show. I've heard so many positive things about it. Everyone I know has said if I'm a fan of the original, I won't be disappointed, even though it's different.

It's good, but different from the original 1960s version; sort of as much of a 'remake' as the movie version was, even though it was a different Robot in that one, it at least was the original Robot's voice.
Totally different Robot here. The only vocalization is the famous "Danger, Will Robinson".

*Spoiler Alert*: Watch for the 'Easter Egg' about Dr Smith.

Re-reading (after several years) Stanislaw Lem's "Solaris" (this part didn't make it the 1st time due to the site going down for maintenance at the time I originally posted), then I'll be re-reading his "Tales of Pyrx the Pilot". Already read all of the of the "Wingman" series by Mack Maloney. Prior to that, I was reading the last book (#16 I think, of 23 total) of Mike Shepherd's "Kris Longknife" series.
All in e-Book format (Kindle 5th Generation reader - an older model with no backlight, so the battery lasts a lot longer and no touchscreen)


Also read all 27 books (so far) in Ryk Brown's "Frontiers Saga" series (2 parts so far, of 5 parts planned, with 15 books in each part).

Err, make that 24 books (Parts 1 & 2) in the "Frontiers Saga" series - 25th should be coming out sometime this month.
