This is to let anyone who is bidding on my auctions at this time that,
Sprint cut our phoneline by accident on Friday.
They promised to have it fixed by Saturday afternoon and it is yet
to be fixed.
Now they say it will be by tomorrow, Monday 12/13/2004, that it will be fixed.
I will be trying to take care of my auctions and e-mail either through
my son-in-laws internet connection (TheBrassMan) or my sons internet connection.

Thank you for understanding any delays.

    An elderly lady phoned her telephone company to report that her
    telephone failed to ring when her friends called - and that on
    the few occasions when it did ring, her pet dog always moaned
    right before the phone rang.

    The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile elderly lady.

    He climbed a nearby telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and
    dialed the subscriber's house. The phone didn't ring right away, but then the dog moaned loudly and the telephone began to ring.

    Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:

    1. The dog was tied to the telephone system's ground wire via a steel
    chain and collar.

    2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.

    3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling current when the phone
    number was called.

    4. After a couple of such jolts, the dog would start moaning and then
    urinate on himself and the ground.

    5. The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing the phone to ring.

    Which goes to show that...

    ...some problems can be fixed by pissing and moaning!

    We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors....but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

    [:D] Thanks for the post nunn[:D]

    Thomas Jefferson, of Virginia:
    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

    I think he got it from Trapshooters dot Comm. It was posted there last week.
