Overheard at the Tuesday Tarts meeting

Mature Humor–(or maybe just a bit childish)
Voted “Women’s Favorite Email of the Year”

A man was sick and tired of going to work every day
while his wife stayed home, so he prayed:

Dear Lord: I go to work every day and put in 8 hours
while my wife merely stays at home. I want her to know what I
go through, so please allow her body to switch with mine for a day. Amen.
God, in His infinite wisdom, granted the man’s wish. The next morning,
sure enough, the man awoke as a woman. He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate, awakened the kids, set out their school clothes, fed
them breakfast, packed their lunches, drove them to school, came home and picked up the dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners and stopped at the bank to make a deposit, went grocery shopping, then drove home to put away the groceries, pay the bills and balance the check book.

He cleaned the cat’s litter box and bathed the dog. Then it was
already 1:00 p.m. and he hurried to make the beds, do the
laundry, vacuum, dust, and sweep and mop the kitchen floor. Ran to the school to pick up the kids.
Set out cookies and milk and got the kids organized to do their homework, then setup the ironing board and watched TV while he
did the ironing.
At 4:30 p.m… he began peeling potatoes and washing vegetables for
salad, breaded the chicken and snapped fresh beans for supper. After supper he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed.

At 9:00 p.m. he was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren’t
finished, he went to bed where he was expected to make love which he managed to get through without complaint.
> > >
The next morning he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and said,
“Lord, I don’t know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to
envy my wife’s being able to stay home all day. Please, oh please, let us trade back.”
The Lord, in His infinite wisdom, replied, “My son, I feel you have
learned your lesson and I will be happy to change things
back to the way they were.
You’ll just have to wait nine months, though. You got pregnant last

The Mature Adult

Red Neck Joke-or as Jeff Foxworthy says “Here’s your sign!”

Bubba and Earl, two rednecks from Kentucky, were in a local Wal-Mart and they decided to get in on the weekly charity raffle. They bought five tickets each at a dollar a pop. The following week, when the raffle was drawn, each had won a prize. Earl won first place, a year’s supply of gourmet spaghetti sauce and extra long spaghetti. Bubba won 6th place, a toilet brush. About a week or so had passed when the men met up at the Wal-Mart. Bubba asked Earl how he liked his prize, to which Earl relied, “Great I love spaghetti!” Earl asked Bubba, “How about you? How’ the toilet brush?” “Not so good,” replied Bubba. “ I reckon I’m gonn’a go back to paper.



Lions Club Honors Steve McIntosh

Shell Knob Lions Club Says Thank You to Steve McIntosh, 7th Congressional District constituent liaison

Shell Knob Lions Club President Steve Crandall gave high praise to Steve McIntosh, the 7th Congressional District constituent liaison representative based out of Joplin, Mo. Richard Nierman, and president Steve Crandall sought help from several sources in achieving the Lions’ Club goal of renovating the CCC park water problems.

The old restroom facilities had deteriorated so badly that it contaminated the well system. Their search for a new water source ran into numerous obstacles in the various federal and state agencies. And then, the Forest Service was reluctant to replace the irreparable restroom facilities although they were doing so with other facilities in the Mark Twain Forest. Frustrated, Richard called Steve McIntosh for help. Steve was able to open many doors by  phone calls to the parties involved and became the “Go-to-Guy” to get the project completed.

Roy Blunt and Steve McIntosh are old school friends and that friendship ultimately lead to Steve joining Roy in his political career. However, Steve maintains his services are not political. He said that if anyone in the 7th district needs help with Federal issues; Social Security, Corps of Engineers, Federal Grants or Farming programs, call him in his Joplin office. The audience greatly appreciated Steve’s presentation on the inner workings of being a representative’s liaison. Several positive comments were made regarding Steve’s past work for this area and the meeting ending with a standing round of applause.
