JUST FOR A LAUGH

A man seeing flashing red and blue lights in his rear view mirror pulls to the side of the road. Shortly after coming to a stop, a police officer approaches the car.

The man says, "What's the problem officer?"

Officer: "You were going 75 miles an hour in a 55 mile an hour zone. I'm afraid I'm going to have to ticket you."

Man: "No sir, I was going a little over 60."

Wife: "Oh, Harry. You were going at least 80!" (The man gives wife dirty look.)

Officer: "I'm also going to give you a ticket for your broken tail light."

Man: "Broken tail light? I didn't know about a broken tail light!"

Wife: "Oh Harry, you've known about that tail light for weeks!" (The man gives his wife another a dirty look.)

Officer: "I'm also going to give you a citation for not wearing your seat belt."

Man: "Oh, I just took it off when you were walking up to the car."

Wife: "Oh, Harry, you never wear your seat belt!"

The Man turns to his wife and yells, "For cryin' out loud, can't you just shut up?!"

The officer turns to the woman and asks, "Ma'am, does your husband talk to you this way all the time?"

And so the wife says, "No officer, only when he's drunk."

THE TOO MANY CARS TO FIX BLUES BY: PAT GREER    

I woke up this morning and looked out back. 

What I saw, almost gave me a heart attack. 

There was my ’67, ’62, ’55 and the ’41. 

They all needed work. Not a one was done. 

Could my wife be right I began to muse. 

I've got the too many cars to fix blues. ‘


In the back in a trailer sits my ’32 6. 

Its engine and transmission waiting to be fixed. 

Up North in a barn, an old ’64 is stored. 

But all I can do is pay its board. 

Could my wife be right I began to muse. 

I've got the too many cars to fix blues.

 

The brakes, the ball joints, the body, the head. 

It’s going to keep going until I am dead. 

One thing gets fixed and two things break. 

I think it is more than I can take. 

Could my wife be right I began to muse. 

I've got the too many cars to fix blues.

 

Why do I do it? Why can’t I get free? 

Why can’t I break the hold these car’s got on me? 

Is this my fate? Is this what life will hold? 

Is this something to look forward to as I grow old? 

Could my wife be right I began to muse. 

I've got the too many cars to fix blues. 


No more cars right now. I don’t have to think twice. 

But say, wouldn’t an old 55 Chevy sports coupe be nice? 

Singin’ songs is fine, it you got time to burn. 

I’ve got to stop now. I got a wrench to turn. 

Could my wife be right I began to muse. 

I've got the too many cars to fix blues.

My 37 Packard Progress

Ross has made super progress and the engine is back in and he is having the drive shaft cut down to the correct length for the overdrive addition. He still has lots of work to do before she is finished but looks like I will have her back by June.
