Juggler on the Freeway


Tonight is Halloween. A thriller movie would be fun to watch but where have all the great thriller movies gone?

"Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water..."--- that was the tag line of the movie. JAWS --> now that was a real thriller!

Viewers flocked to the theaters to watch the much-awaited summer blockbuster of 1975. I was with a young teen ... my cousin Michael. The lights dimmed. We heard the 2 note bass tone of the cello's excalating tempo. We knew death was right around the corner. The shark devoured its first victim. Women spectators screamed thier lungs out and that did not help calm our nerves. WIth every surprise, Michael would stand up and pace around. "Don't leave your seat! People will get mad," I told him.

When the corpse with its eyeballs hanging out floated in front of the diver, the people screamed! I was impressed because Michael did not pace down the aisle anymore. Instead, his legs were tucked underneath him --- his hands holding firmly for dear life. But the biggest scream came when the hero was baiting the shark with buckets of blood and the monster suddenly loomed up behind them. Michael was airborne. He didn't realize he was standing on his seat. I was bawling over with laughter ... so was Michael.

 A good movie plays with your emotions. A great movie launches little guys like Michael up in the air. How I miss those movies. Am I just getting jaded with age? I hope not. How about you?

Juggler on the Freeway
sent by Tom of Pasadena, CA

A Virginia State trooper pulled a car over on I-64 about 2 miles south of the Virginia/West Virginia State line.

When the trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver said he was a juggler and was on his way to do a show at the Shrine Circus. He didn't want to be late.

The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling and said if the driver would do a little juggling for him then he wouldn't give him a ticket.

He told the trooper he had sent his equipment ahead and didn't have anything to juggle. The trooper said he had some flares in the trunk and asked if he could juggle them.

The juggler said he could, so the trooper got 5 flares, lit them and handed them to him.

While the man was juggling, a car pulled in behind the patrol car.

A drunken good old boy traveling from Tennessee got out, watched the performance, then went over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in.

The trooper observed him and went over to the patrol car, opened the door asking the drunk what he thought he was doing.


The drunk replied, “You might as well take me to jail, 'cause ...
there ain't no way I can pass that test!

Bugs in my Mailbox
sent by Naomi of North Hollywood, CA

There are bugs in my mailbox. What am I to do?

I found them there this morning, doing things they shouldn't do.

How the bugs got there, I haven't a clue.

But they won't be there much longer because I'm sending them to ...


It's your turn to pass this along! Have a safe TGIF Trick or Treat!

I'm sure I featured this video before but I think it's still worth another look. Instead of these H.S. kids and teachers making fun of him, they swarm him with love and understanding. But no one expected what he did on that one fateful basketball game.

We end today's TGIF joke with this video. No, this isn't what you think. It isn't religious in any way. It's a musical extravaganza featuring top recording artists paying homage to something they all share in common. Guess what it is.
TGIF People!



Your headline is so great! I _had_ to see what went with it. As usual, great illustrations. Thanks for sending this out. I know you're so busy, but you are appreciated! Have a great Friday and weekend. -- Laura

Jaws brings back fond memories when reading the book we chartered a big sail boat and were anchored off Catalina Island with 5 kids aboard and I was reading aloud to them.

The dark shadows beneath the boat took on greater terror and no one wanted to go snorkeling!
