Ode To A Spell Checker

Mandy sent this to me a few days ago. She said it made her head hurt a little. I know what she means. Can you read it and understand what it means? It has no misspellings, but it is insanity on paper…

Owed Two A Spell Chequer

Eye halve a spelling chequer,
it came with my pea sea.
It plainly marquees, four my revue,
miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
and weight four it two say,
Weather eye am wrong oar write
it shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid,
it nose bee fore two long.
And eye can put the error rite
it's rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it,
I am shore your pleased two no.
Its letter perfect awl the weigh,
my chequer tolled me sew.

Fishing Last Tuesday
Sauger We had a bad day of catching fish on Tuesday. We did not catch a single crappie. But we did catch three nice Sauger (see picture of a sauger). They are in the pike family and close kin to the walleye pike. Like the walleye, they are delicious eating.

If you are interested in fish or fishing, you can learn about the different varieties of fish and their habitat at the web site: Take Me Fishing.

Don’t ever quit!
Keep going, even if you take small steps.
Never, never quit.

Joke of the Day

Two elderly women were out driving in a large car -  both could barely see over the dashboard. As they  were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red, but they  just went on through. The woman in the  passenger seat thought to herself 'I must be  losing it. I could have sworn we just went Through a red light.'

After a few more minutes, they came to another intersection and  the light was red. Again, they went right through.  The woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting  nervous.

At the next intersection, sure  enough, the light was red and they went on  through. So, She turned to the other woman and  said, 'Mildred, did you know that we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could  have killed us both!'

Mildred turned  to her and said, 'Oh, no, am I driving?'
