ARe YOU Laughing At Me? It's OK

The young man from Texas A&M came running into the store and said to his   buddy, "Bubba, somebody just stole your pickup truck from the parking lot!"

Bubba replied, "Did you see who it was?"

The young man answered, "I couldn't tell, but I got the license



A Texas State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-20.

The trooper asked, "Got any ID?"

The driver replied, "Bout whut?"


A man in Tyler had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind   it. Then he got back in the car to wait.

A passerby studied the scene as   he drove by and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was.

 The man replied, "I have a flat tire."

The passerby asked, "But what's with the flowers?" The man responded,

"When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares   in the back!

 I never did understand it either


My friend,
My companion,
Through good times and bad,
My friend,
My buddy,
Through happy and sad,
Beside me you stand,
Beside me you walk,
You're there to listen,
You're there to talk,
With happiness,
With smiles,
With pain and tears,
I know you'll be there, throughout the years!
You are all good friends to me and I am grateful to you
Thank you for being my friends!

Hmmm, wonder if the wife would like a dozen flares sent to her at work?  Might have to look into that.

One time a couple were looking at a mobile home on a lot in Jourdanton to buy from John. The young lady kept asking me if the flares stayed. I didn't know what in the world she was talking about. She finally said the flares in the yard. Oh yes they stay. DUH! Paula

Barbara, it was so surreal to read those great jokes, then absorb the serious beauty in the poem you wrote with such heart.  A wonderful mixture of laughs, then tender smiles.  You have an abundance of true friends!  Cathy
