Greetings workers of the world! As you know, I just re-send the best joke(s) I get from the emails I gather from people all over the world. Then I add my own original drawings (which I create on the spot as I put this email together) to give it a personal touch. Most of the time I create this a few hours before Thursday midnight so if you catch a few typos, please forgive my tired mind and fingers. If this is your first time to receive this, welcome to a new and (hopefully) entertaining addiction.

This week Los Angeles experienced rain for the first time since a very dry summer spell. I actually like this weather ... perfect in my book --- warm days with little showers and chilly nights to warm up with the missus. But as far as work goes, it was as busy as ever. Thanks to you who came over to greet me last Saturday at the Atherton Country Fair. I must have drawn close to 50 caricatures. It was tiring but fun. I'm working right now on a digital mural that's 6 feet high and 12 feet long. It's quite a challenge.

Thanks to this week's winners: Joji of Antipolo, Mindy of La Crescenta, Dulce of Vancouver, Jody of Southern California and Don of Kewlona.

From Joji of Antipolo, Phil.

Words of Wisdom

My choices in life were either to be a piano player in a whore house or a politician. And to tell the truth, there's hardly any difference!

Be sure to send me your favorite jokes. The newer the better. If it makes me laugh it could be among the TGIF Jokes of the week.

TGIF people!

First Car Air Conditioner
sent by Mindy of La Crescenta, CA

The four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram, and Max, invented and
developed the first automobile air-conditioner.

On July 17, 1946, the Temperature in Detroit was 97 degrees.

The four brothers walked into old man Henry Ford's office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the Most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter.

Henry was curious and invited them into his office. They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car.

They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 degrees, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off immediately.

The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent.

The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, 'The Goldberg Air-Conditioner,' On the dashboard of each car in which it was installed.

Now old man Ford was more than just a little anti-Semitic, and there was no way he was going to put the Goldberg's name on two million Fords.

They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 Million and that just their first names would be shown.

And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max on the controls.

So, now you know...

P.S. Don't lose your sense of humor during these challenging times

Bob and Betty Hill
sent by Dulce of Vancouver, B.C.

Bob Hill and his new wife Betty were vacationing in Europe... as it happened, near Transylvania . They were driving in a rental car along a rather deserted highway. It was late and raining very hard. Bob could barely see the road in front of the car. Suddenly the car skids out of control! Bob attempts to control the car, but to no avail! The car swerves and smashes into a tree.

Moments later, Bob shakes his head to clear the fog. Dazed, he looks over at the passenger seat and sees his wife unconscious, with her head bleeding! Despite the rain and unfamiliar countryside, Bob knows he has to get her medical assistance.

Bob carefully picks his wife up and begins trudging down the road. After a short while, he sees a light. He heads towards the light, which is coming from a large, old house. He approaches the door and knocks.

A minute passes. A small, hunched man opens the door. Bob immediately blurts, "Hello, my name is Bob Hill , and this is my wife Betty . We've been in a terrible accident, and my wife has been seriously hurt. Can I please use your phone?"

"I'm sorry," replied the hunchback, "but we don't have a phone. My master is a doctor; come in and I will get him!" Bob brings his wife in.

An older man comes down the stairs. "I'm afraid my assistant may have misled you. I am not a medical doctor; I am a scientist... However, it is many miles to the nearest clinic, and I have had a basic medical training. I will see what I can do. Igor , bring them down to the laboratory"

With that, Igor picks up Betty and carries her downstairs, with Bob following closely.

Igor places Betty on a table in the lab. Bob collapses from exhaustion and his own injuries, so Igor places Bob on an adjoining table.

After a brief examination, Igor's master looks worried. "Things are serious, Igor . Prepare a transfusion..." Igor and his master work feverishly, but to no avail. Bob and Betty Hill are no more.

The Hills' deaths upset Igor's master greatly. Wearily, he climbs the steps to his conservatory, which houses his grand piano. For it is here that he has always found solace. He begins to play, and a stirring, almost haunting melody fills the house.

Meanwhile, Igor is still in the lab tidying up. His eyes catch movement, and he notices the fingers on Betty's hand twitch, keeping time to the haunting piano music.. Stunned, he watches as Bob's arm begins to rise, marking the beat! He is further amazed as Betty and Bob both sit up straight!

Unable to contain himself, he dashes up the stairs to the conservatory.

He bursts in and shouts to his master:

"Master, Master! .....
The Hills are alive with the Sound of Music!"

(I am soooooo sorry...... But you really should've seen that coming)

What did you expect.....it's free from a demented friend on the Internet

How to Win a Race
sent by Jody of California

So you're driving down a lonely bike path. Suddenly you look around and you're in the middle of something big ... really BIG!

This is a rare happy prank.

Me, My, Mine and I
sent by Don of Kewlona, B.C.

Once you get a musician one of those hi-tech sound mixers there's no telling what he can do with it. If you look around the page, This guy is quite an accomplished musical arranger. He even gets his kids to join him.

I bet he did the video editing too.

Now THIS is biking
sent by Don of Kewlona, B.C.

If you read my story about Big Bear Lake, you'll know that I don't know how to ride a bike. So this video comes as a startling reminder of what I could have enjoyed doing.

This biker/acrobat shows us what it really means to bike. Simply amazing.

Give us a sense of humor, Lord. Give us the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life. And pass it on to other folk
