With this issue, a new chapter begins for Hard Tales. I hope you will join me in wishing Frank and his team the very best in their future endeavors. The mission going forward is, quite simply, to make Hard Tales the go-to rider resource for Western New York and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to better connect and inform the riding community which includes all riders, of all types, of all machines, who want to know where they can go and be welcomed and appreciated (without any attitude). Many hands make light the work. My sincere appreciation goes out to the advertisers, many of whom have supported the magazine for years; and others brand new (like me). Without their commitment, Hard Tales may have faded away into the sunset. So many people have expressed interest in keeping the magazine going, offering their support to help us grow and improve with every future issue. I cannot thank you all enough for your help and guidance in preparing this issue over the last few weeks. I also want to thank my new best friend, Mike, the behind the scenes guy schooling me in magazine design and production. Speaking of improvements, there is a lot of work ahead of us as the weather warms and the machines come out of hibernation. We want to strengthen the editorial content within our pages. We welcome everyone to submit articles (with photos!) that they believe their fellow riders will find interesting and informative. Send us recaps (with photos!) of runs, rider gatherings, happenings, events, parties, etc. And please us with suggestions. We re also building a new website and upgrading our Facebook page. In the coming months, I ll be attending as many rider events as I can. I hope to see you there. If you see me, please come and say hello. I d love to hear your thoughts on the magazine and how we can make it even better! I always enjoy constructive feedback. I hope you enjoy this issue, and encourage you to please patronize the businesses and people who advertise with us and keep Hard Tales free to you, our reader.

10 Local Bike Wins in Syracuse Tony Marinaro s 1981 Shovelhead took First in Class this February at Syracuse Cycle Expo 2015 Here s the back story from Tony: This is my bike. It's a 1981 shovelhead. This is actually the second time I built this bike. The first time ended when I got hit by a car on her in She was totaled. There wasn't a part on her that wasn't broke, bent, scratched, or gone. I bought it back from the insurance company and put her in the garage. That's where she sat until that winter. I wanted to do something I never saw before. I had an idea of turning part of the engine backwards. I also wanted split rockers just because I love the look. That's when I ended up at B.A. Enterprises talking with Dave Reidenouer. After a short discussion he was on board with the idea. Next came months in the garage. Torches, welders, and grinders going every night fueled by cold beer and my brothers coming by to help and check on my progress. After the frame was straight, I welded in gussets for strength. I didn't want the frame to crack in any places that 4 speed frames are known for. I split the rockers myself and also had to fabricate a top motor mount and the exhaust pipes. I ended up massaging every part on the bike to make them my own. I did the paint myself in my South Buffalo garage. I am thrilled with how the bike turned out. I want to thank Grott from the Hog Farm for his support and Dave from B.A. Enterprises for all their help. Without the knowledge that was shared with me, this bike would not have come out so cool.

12 Street Savvy Motorcycle Insurance 101. N.Y. State No No Fault For Motorcycles Shifting Gears by Flyboy Served 28 years in the U.S.Air Force, The Kantor Law Firm Personal Injury, Motorcycle Accident Attorneys. Been in the saddle riding for 45 years Another riding season is right around the corner. Soon, thousands of motorcyclists will hit the road as soon as the weather breaks with the official riding season starting with Memorial Day weekend, followed by a summer of rallies, bike nights, group rides and tours. Before pulling out of your driveway, take a few minutes to review your insurance policy. Having adequate coverage will help protect your legal rights and the rights of your passenger if you re ever involved in an accident. Buying the right motorcycle insurance can be tricky. All types of insurance coverage s aren t available in all states, and state requirements vary. In New York State s case, motorcycles are covered under a separate policy from other vehicles and are not covered under the No Fault coverage. Also, your coverage does not cover medical benefits on your policy. In that case, be sure you have other medical insurance. Otherwise, you could be left with many thousands of dollars in hospital bills after an accident. New York State requires a minimum for Uninsured Liability is $25,000, Underinsured is $50,000 this can save you a few dollars every month, but it can t protect your financial security in the long run. Find out which options you can choose, and think about the coverage options that will best protect you, your passengers and your family. You can make policy updates at any time. Just don t wait until after you ve been in an accident! Then, it's too late. There are a couple types of coverage you may want to consider adding to your existing policy. The first is Bodily Injury Liability, which will cover any claims against you if you are found legally responsible for causing someone to be injured. The second is Uninsured/ Underinsured Motorist Coverage, which will protect you if you re involved in an accident with a financially irresponsible motorist. Look at your motorcycle insurance on your existing coverage. It s important to know your type of coverage because of the large number of uninsured underinsured motorists on the streets today. Having the proper coverage allows you to collect against your own insurance policy if you are injured by a uninsured / underinsured motorist or injured by a hit-and-run driver. New York State Insurance Law under article 51, Insurance law excludes motorcycles under the no fault law and your passenger is not covered. For spouses you should have spouse liability coverage. For example: Insured's bodily injury policy coverage limit: Uninsured/underinsured Motorist coverage $100,000/ $300,000 or 250,000/500,000 Insured's bodily injury damage claim paid to spouse: $75,000 Insured's bodily injury policy coverage limit available to all other claimants subject to a maximum of $100,000 per person. This example assumes the spouse and other claimants involved in the accident have a right to sue the insured for economic loss or for non-economic loss (i.e., pain and suffering) sustained as a result of a "serious injury" as defined in Section 5102 (d) of the Insurance Law. This coverage CAN be added to a motorcycle policy as well. It operates the same way on a motorcycle policy. When talking to an agent, ask questions: What are my coverage options? What are the stipulations and exceptions for each type of coverage?

14 Catching Up Is Hard To Do Wow, that time off flew by. There sure were things I wished I could chime in on with an opinion when it was happening. Old news isn t worth much, unless it is a problem that never seems to go away. Currently, both nationally and locally, the Native American mascot for sports teams concept is still lingering. It s hard to believe there is even a debate at all. You would think the people in charge would have the brains enough to just say Yeah, folks we can t call ourselves Redskins anymore, it s really offensive. We ve got to pick a new name. Something everyone can agree on. This should be put in the same category as spray painting Swastikas or burning crosses. To talk with the people that want to preserve it, you d think they were talking about an annoying dog that barks a lot. Oh, it s not that bad, it s always been like that. The problem is one of perspective. If what you are doing doesn t bother you, which is certainly most likely, (why would you?) you become oblivious to the world around you. If you make someone uncomfortable or feel insulted, threatened or have any unpleasant emotion, you shouldn t have a That s their problem. attitude. It s your problem for inflicting it upon them. They can t stop feeling what they are feeling until YOU stop doing what you are doing. I know some people that play up the Scary Biker image a little bit too much. I know others that always have a smile and a greeting for everyone they meet. Know it or not, like it or not, they represent a group... All Riders leave an impression (let s hope it s not on the passenger side door). It can be street, trail, dirt etc., that doesn t matter. Whoever sees them and what they do, form an impression that includes the whole group. Stereotypes take time to form and time to fade. It just requires a little action over a period of time. We as riders should always be aware of that, especially with cameras on everybody s phone. There has never been a better way for One bad apple to spoil the whole bunch through. than for a motor cyclist to make You Tube doing the attention getting antics people hate. In a Parallel Thinking world footnote, I have devised a great plan to get even with the jerk that keeps pulling his boat right up in front of me while I am wading to fish. I tried asking him nicely, he said It s a free country and it s a public river. This guy is in a boat on an entirely empty West Niagara River. I am wading 40 feet from shore and he stops 20 ft in front of me! So I asked him if he was lonely? I told him he is being a jerk. It was really frustrating. After he finally leaves it occurs to me what to do next time something like this happens. I m going to complement his boat and tell him my friend is looking for one just like it. Mind if I send him a pic? Then I start filming him. Get him to say his name and finally narrate the video. Here I am on the Niagara River with this A-Hole Continued on next page Rt. 394 P.O.

15 Continued from previous page... (Insert name here) fishing directly in front of me. I ll pan the entire river devoid of boats. I ll then tell my rude guest to look for himself on You Tube under Idiot Boater Comes too Close for Comfort or something to that effect. I am going to immortalize someone s inconsideration of others, for everyone to see, through all of eternity. It s harsh but fair considering the sanctity of fishing spots. It should get a million views and I get revenge without all the fuss. I hope everyone got their winter projects done on their rides. Should be a great season, we deserve it after that brutal winter. Speaking of winter, Google Joe Barrett ice boom to read about what should be happening if not for the N.Y.P.A. ice boom. It would be a better Lower Great Lakes without it, that s for sure. There's a lot more to that story that wasn't fit to print. I'll tell you in person sometime. Send your suggestions on topics if you have them, there is no problem I can t solve.

16 Welcome back fellow rider s, friend s and everybody in between. We have a couple of of news going on around here at Ol Hard Tales magazine. First, maybe a riding season (if the winter from hell ever finally exits WNY). And secondly, a new owner. My new boss Steve. Steve just took over the reins from Hard Tales founder Frankie, who discovered the mag 13 years ago. So, off into year 14 we go as Frankie sails off into retirement. So, what better place to lead off my first column of the new year than in the Land of Fruits and Nuts. Sunny California. They never seem to disappoint. Well, there was this female, working out in her local/national gym. All good with that. So, after she completes her workout, she heads to she woman s locker room to change and whatnot and that s when things got a little complicated. You see, there is a dude standing there. Changing from his workout. Not so good with that. Wo Wo Wo!! Not in here she thought. Get in your own room. So after a few choice words to this guy, off she went to management with a formal complaint. Upon further review...her membership was revoked. Huh? Well, it seems the guy was actually becoming a her. And apparently at that stage of the game you can pick whichever locker room you so please and he/she chose the latter. Guess the sex change started at her head and didn t get quite past the belt line at that point. And worse, the fine print of the contract she signed stated that discrimination will not be tolerated. And out she went. Guess the lesson of this story is either read the fine print of the contract you are about to sign, or just have co-ed changing rooms. Another one of my favorite topics is about the biggest welfare recipient in the world. The Queen of England. What brought this up was that I happened to be in one of my insomniatic states at around 3 in the morning, and while channel flipping I stumbled upon a story about what England will do when their beloved freeloader is no longer with us. Heck, that s an easy one. Nothing!! Eliminate the position. Be like all the companies around the nation...don t replace her at all. And save the salary. Seeing that The Crown Estate is worth an estimated at $13 billion dollars, I think the family will be okay. The only thing I ever saw her do is wave...and she doesn t even do that right. I will say, the only guy in that bunch that is tolerable is Prince Harry. Any guy who like s to run around naked in Las Vegas must be a lot of fun to booze with. I m not a big fan of flying. Not because 16 VIEW HARD TALES ONLINE I m a big scardy cat or anything, it s just because it can sometimes really be a hassle. And people seem to bring their mean streaks with them. On a recent flight, I got to watch quite a show, that you can only see, well, in an airport or on a plane. The pre-boarding was a kick. This gives the handicapped (like the phony guy in the wheelchair, more on him later), people with young kids, military, special needs and something called comfort dogs. Huh? Guess you are special if you bring little Fluffy the dog with you. After all this foolishness, I scanned the remaining crowd, and realized I was pretty much the only normal guy flying. Everybody else seemed to have some type of courtesy for early boarding. And first crack at overhead storage space. Which I didn t. Oh I get it now. Come up with some bullshit excuse to get on early, bring on your oversized carry on, and take my up space with it. Got it. Root cause of this charade is all the El Cheapo s don t want to pay to check in a bag, and need all the room in the over head compartments. Nice. And the guy in the wheelchair? Who needed all that help and whatnot? He stood up upon arrival, grabbed his bag, and off he went. What a sleaze ball. In my quest to make ton s and ton s of money, and basically do nothing to get my paws on it...i like to see how other people get theirs. In a recent column I stated Chelsea Clinton was commandeering $75,000 a wack to speak. What she has to say, who knows, but her Mom, Hillary Clinton is a whole new ball game. The former First Lady just left U. of Buffalo s Distinguished Speakers series with a cool $275,000. For a whole half hour talk. Guess she fielded a few real softball questions at the end, from selected questionnaires. Such as Do you like the Buf- Continued on page 19...

Does the agency have emergency numbers to use if I m in an accident? Find someone who responds quickly to your questions and is up front about coverage options. Word-of-mouth is the best form of advertising, so get recommendations from friends and family. It s impossible to completely eliminate your chances of being in an accident. Many drivers don t exercise as much caution around motorcyclists as they should. An animal could run out in front of you. A drunk driver could drift into your lane. But by having adequate motorcycle insurance coverage, you ll know that you re being proactive in protecting your family, legal rights and your financial security. You will find this coverage is modestly priced All I can say is ride safe this 2015 season; it s dangerous out there. Always remember you are invisible out on the road.

19 Where The Eagles Soar! Continued from page falo Bills? Do you like chicken wings? Please. Or, how about Kevin Jarman from Queens NY. Good ol Kevin, a frequent flyer arrest guy, got caught shoplifting. Again. Apparently the arresting officer made him stumble, broke his leg, and sued NYC for $510,000, and won. He knows the game. He sued, and won for $15,000 in 2005 and another for $20,000 earlier this year. Perfect. I am now going to give a little thank you. A thanks to a now retired friend, Frankie Hard Tales. He gave an opportunity for an only one column, to fill a page, in his magazine, for a knucklehead, over-opinionated, sometimes factual guy (me). That was seven years ago. And somehow I haven t offended anybody enough to lose this neat gig I have going.

Reid in 1947, together with his wife Babs, he delivered the local mail while selling and servicing Harley-Davidson motorcycles from a small barn located behind their house. They raised ten children and set the foundation for a successful dealership centered on taking care of customer. Six of the children; John Reid, the late-tony Reid, Marty Reid, Bob Reid, Monica (Reid) Hall and Paula (Reid) Rosen would help transform the old barn into the modern dealership beloved today. WELCOME HOME Today, Gowanda Harley-Davidson remains the one of the longest continuously family owned dealerships in the country and ranks amongst the best in customer satisfaction. The dealership customer base extends throughout Western New York and Northeastern Pennsylvania, and draws motorcycle tourism to Gowanda from across the country to experience our region. Generations of local Harley-Davidson motorcycle owners now share stories of being introduced to the Reid family and Gowanda Harley-Davidson at an early age for a visit with Santa Claus or an Autumn Open House picnic. This cross-generational sharing of the connections that can be found throughout the motorcycling community transcends and continue to make Gowanda Harley-Davidson and the Gowanda community a welcoming home. COMMUNITY The sense of community and giving back is present in all the staff at Gowanda Harley-Davidson, often becoming a true team endeavor when a need arises. The caring and entrepreneurial spirit of the Reid family and individual employees backed with the resources of the dealership has launched numerous fundraisers that lift, benefit and empower both local families and our greater community. Beneficiaries in recent years have included: Gowanda s Historic Hollywood Theater Gowanda Food Pantry Roswell Park Cancer Institute Camp Good Days and Special Times American Red Cross Local military veterans Numerous local fundraisers promoted by local motorcycle organizations.

21 Bat-Rat-A-Tat-Tat... AFTER BEFORE Most Recently Gowanda Harley-Davidson hosted a unique event geared toward the beginner entering the V-Twin world. The GHD Techs put their nerves to the test with a 3 hour rat transformation project. Guests were invited to attend and participate to bring some new life to a tired 1994 XLH1200. The project was designed to show what someone could do with an inexpensive Harley, spare parts, traded parts, spray paint and some affordable cosmetic ideas. With their 3 A H-D techs and service manager, the team was able to make some radical changes to end up bringing the Bat-Rat to life. Doug Merrill a customer of Gowanda Harley was invited to the event by his Grandson Trenten and commented about the professionalism of the GHD techs and said I was so impressed how your guys could work like that, and I didn t hear any swearing. Everybody worked right along getting the job done with no shouting, and it looked great in the end. The stars of the show turned out to be Tin foil for masking off, home made paint stencils from masking tape and wax paper and Harley-Davidson s Flat Black Spray paint. Visit Gowanda Harley-Davidson Youtube channel to see some great footage including a time lapse video of the evening. VIEW HARD TALES ONLINE 21

30 Dealer Of The Year s CVO Road Glide The 2012 CVO Road Glide built by Drag Specialties Chattahoochee River Run s Dealer of the Year Scott Fentzke Harley-Davidson CVO Road Glide Customized By Scott Fentzke Performance Fabrication Inc. A simple snapshot of what s possible with some know-how, good taste and the FatBook. Those Performance Machine rotors and front wheel, Ness fork legs and Yaffe sliders really make the front-end pop. That Scott Fentzke is a detail man is apparent. All one had to do was get up close and personal with the 2012 Harley- Davidson CVO Road Glide he and his wife Pam piloted through the two days of the Chattahoochee River Run. Multiyear veterans of the annual ride, the Fentzkes were named the run s Dealer of the Year. The bike is an exercise in restraint and taste, a combination of parts taken straight from the FatBook and artfully assembled into a whole that s clearly more than the sum of its pieces. As the owner of Performance Fabrication Inc. in West Falls, NY, near Buffalo, Fentzke s been building customs since the 70s a long time to sharpen that eye for detail. Way back when he was customizing Japanese bikes he idolized legends like Arlen Ness, Donnie Smith and Dave Perewitz. After building a custom Softail that made it into Hot Bike, his business was born. Bikes were a side gig while he worked fulltime, eventually opening his shop in All of those years of experience are clearly distilled into the CVO he bought brand spanking new in late At first he only did the exhaust and fuel system, but then a local buddy bought the exact same model his town wasn t big enough for the two of those bikes so he got to work. He started the build with a Grand Idea of the finished product. I was always into 30 VIEW HARD TALES ONLINE details about the things I did, Fentzke says. You have to be able to put the right parts together to get the perfect combination. While he d always been a chrome nut, he liked the trend toward blacked-out bikes and thought with the bike s OE colors, black was the way to go. On went those Ness fork legs, that Performance Machine wheel and a blacked-out exhaust. Engine-wise, the black Revolution Performance Big Bore kit with highlighted fins was another nice touch. And then some RSD cam covers and rocker box covers, and some bits like Ness shifter, brake arm and shifter rod. From nose to tail, that CVO absorbed more of those FatBook products from the Yaffe Monkey bars and headlight Scoowl to the Mustang solo and passenger seats and Legend Suspensions REVO shocks, it s a rolling testament to Fentzke s talent and the scope of that Drag Specialties catalog. I just think it really turned out well. I ve got so many people who want to buy that bike, he says. I ve had three Screamin Eagles and this is by far the best one I ve had.

32 Eden Chopper Class #15 Pardon the interruption, but as you read this please take an opportunity to reflect about what you hear and read regarding failing schools in New York State. March is here and we just had our first fifty degree day in months, so the full-time two wheel season is just around the corner for us in Western New York. That means wind on our faces, grit on the roads and people driving four wheels and re-learning how to keep their eyes open for bikes - so please be careful. March also represents when the Chopper Class makes its annual visit to Saint Paul Minnesota so the kids can enter their current build into the Donnie Smith Chopper Class Challenge. The trip is always great for the kids and parent chaperones that attend it, but it also means that Matt Saramak and I must select our eight best performing/most committed students to represent the entire Chopper Club. The kids in Eden Central Schools own this Club and to tell any of them that they are not deserving of checking out the big show just sucks. Regardless, the students are in full blown crunch time right now because we only have about two weeks until we are on the road heading west. After eight years and nine individual builds, one thing is certain each and every bike the kids have completed provides never-ending problem solving opportunities. For this year s build, we call it the BSA, the challenges have continued and Facebook/Eden Chopper Class many have been unique (to say the least). As in years past, the Chopper Club members/builders range in age from eleven (7th grade) to eighteen (12th grade). Likewise, their knowledge and skill levels relating to the Technical/Chopper/Fabrication worlds vary greatly. Every year we have new students join the Club and this year was certainly no exception. A wave of seventh grade students joined the cause which added a lot of enthusiasm and questioning to everyday operations. With approximately forty five Club members involved each year, it is essential that the veteran/older students model and teach the younger members how to work in the shop and the overall responsibilities of being a member. A perfect example is Emily Cataldo, who has been working/learning under the tutelage of JEREMY KEMLER/COUNTY SEATS for many years and began passing it forward to Megan Armbruster this year, so that she can begin developing her leather working skills in order to create custom motorcycle seats. Likewise, Andrew Maggs and Bryan Haley have both been working with many younger members reinforcing the fundamentals of everything from proper grinder technique/safety to the TIG welding setup. Eden s build team members for 2015 are Andrew Maggs, Justin Keller, Bryan Haley, Joe Haier, Danny/Albert Hoelscher, Jon Haier, Megan Armbruster and Liz Lemieux. Each one, as well as their parents and family members, has dedicated countless hours of personal time to learn, practice and in some cases nearly perfect the skills associated with motorcycle design and fabrication. The term dedicated simply does not give justice to the level of ownership these kids reflect/display every day in the shop and in life. This tenacity is taught by parents and reinforced within the schools walls. Parents, community, businesses, dedicated students, teachers and administrators are all working together with a singular purposeteach the next generation of American citizens the love of the Technical arts/world and how to solve problems. I am biased and a bit stubborn/traditional/old school (whatever you want to call it) but tell me how this can be considered failing? 32 VIEW HARD TALES ONLINE

33 Shifting gears, for those of you who may not know, BSA is the abbreviation for Birmingham Small Arms. Birmingham Small Arms produced motorcycles in the U.K. from 1910 to A few years ago we received a donation from Zack Palmer, a graduated Chopper Class member, when he dropped off two very, very, rough 1951 BSA bantams. His vision was for the students to use the salvageable parts from both machines to create one restored machine. Years and builds passed but the time never seemed to be right to utilize those BSAs. Little did we realize what it means to build a British made machine. First of all, parts that are coming all the way from the U.K. sure take a while to get to the States. This creates some serious scheduling issues. Secondly, they are not like Harleys from the standpoint that most people in that part of the world must really be fit because this Bantam is not designed for a modern American man. Despite the unusual challenges the kids have done a great job staying on task and adapting what they already know about domestic motorcycles to this little British machine. So the BSAs were rusted, broken, missing parts and old. After spending a couple of months disassembling the bikes and separating the good from the bad we got down to the engines. Both were seized and after attempting to split the cases on number one and breaking the left side case we had to call in the reinforcements. TONAWANDA DAVE/B.A. ENTER- PRISES made the trip to the school with BRUCE and after five hours of discussion, heat and a bunch of penetrating oil we managed to salvage the other cases. That was the easy part. Trying to find internal engine components like connecting rods for an early British two stroke proved to be almost impossible. But we did eventually manage to find just about everything we needed to get her road-ready. Although the little British bike has not sparked to life at this point, it will be happening soon. Several years ago five bright-eyed eighth graders showed up for Chopper Class Continued on next page... VIEW HARD TALES ONLINE 33

34 Eden Chopper Class CONTINUED Continued from previous page... meetings in early September. That same dedicated group of students has stayed together and united since those early meetings of Their unity/commitment to the practice and eventual mastery of the Technical Arts has designed and fabricated many of the Chopper Classes most unique creations. A few years ago the core crew had a sixth amigo join the mix. Andrew Maggs, Bryan Haley, Joe Haier, Howie Hoelscher, Keven Kuebler and Justin Keller did not simply maintain the Club that they became a part of as twelve year olds, they improved it in almost every way possible. I/we as a school are proud of the young men they have become and are excited to see the great things they will accomplish in their individual post high school futures. Their leadership and passion will be greatly missed as the next generation of Chopper Kids takes hold of the reins. These six are leaving some giant shoes to fill so please wish them the best if you happen to see them. Now for the masterlink in the Chopper Class educational chain our sponsors. We are one of a about a dozen schools across North America that use motorcycles as an instructional tool routinely. Having spoken to many of the instructors/program coordinators at length it always seems a bit unfair to me. Eden s students literally get help from the best that the motorcycling and many accompanying industries have to offer. Sometimes it s master techs providing invaluable insight and trade experience and others times it s the ability to use cutting-edge abrasives or industry leading lubricants. Occasionally, but pretty consistently it is a Western New York bike enthusiast who wants to help out by drop- 34 VIEW HARD TALES ONLINE

36 THE NEW PRIEST The new priest is ner-vous about hearing confessions for the first time, so he asks an older priest to sit in on his sessions. The new priest hears a couple confessions, then the old priest asks him to step out of the confessional for a few suggestions. The old priest sug-gests, Cross you arms over your chest, and rub your chin with one hand. The new priest tries this. The old priest sug-gests, Try saying things like, I see, yes, go on, and I un-derstand. How did you feel about that? The new priest says those things. The old priest says, Now, don t you think that s a little better than slapping your knee and saying, No shit?!? What happened next? ONE DAY IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN Eve : Adam, do you really love me? Adam: no, not really. Eve : WHAT?! Then why did you make love to me?? Adam: HELLO?!? as if I had a choice! A WATERMELON FARMER A watermelon farmer was determined to scare off the local kids who went into his watermelon patch every night to eat their fill. After some thought, he made a sign that read, WARNING! ONE OF THESE WATERMELONS HAS BEEN INJECTED WITH CYANIDE! He smiled smugly as he watched the kids run off the next night without eating any of his melons. A week later, the farmer was surveying his field. To his satisfaction, no watermelons were missing, but a sign next to his read, NOW THERE ARE TWO! TWO GUYS AND A UNION WORKER Two guys and a union worker were fishing on a lake one day, when Jesus walked across the water and joined them in the boat.when the three astonished men had settled down enough to speak, the first guy asked humbly, Jesus, I ve suffered from back pain ever since I took shrapnel in the Vietnam war could you help me? Of course, my son, Jesus said, and when he touched the man s back, he felt relief for the first time in years. The second man, who wore very thick glasses and had a hard time reading and driving, asked if Jesus could do anything about his eyesight. Jesus smiled, removed the man s glasses and tossed them in the lake. When they hit the water, the man s eyes cleared and he could see everything distinctly. When Jesus turned to heal the union worker, the guy put his hands up and cried defensively, Don t touch me! I m on long term disability. THREE PEOPLE DIE Three people die, a Doctor a school teacher and the head of a large HMO, when met at the pearly gates by St. Peter he asks the Doctor 'what did you do on Earth?' The Dotor replied,i healed the sick and if they could not pay I would do it for free. St. Peter told the Doctor, 'you may go in.' St. Peter then asked the teacher what she did, she replied, I taught educationally challenged children. St. Peter then told her 'you may go in.' St. Peter asked the third man, 'what did you do?' The man hung his head and replied, 'I ran a large HMO.' To which St. Peter replied, 'you may go in, but you can only stay 3 days.' A FRIEND TO ANOTHER A friend to another, what are the names of your dogs? The she responded that one was named Rolex and the other Timex. Her friend said, "Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that?" "HellOOOooo," answered the blonde."they're watch dogs." A FELLOW BOUGHT A NEW MERCEDES A fellow bought a new Mercedes and was out on the interstate for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him. There s no way they can catch a Mercedes, he thought to himself and opened her up further. The needle hit 90, 100.Then the reality of the situation hit him. What am I doing? he thought and pulled over. The cop came up to him, took his license without a word and examined it and the car. It s been a long day, this is the end of my shift and it s Friday the 13th. I don t feel like more paperwork, so if you can give me an excuse for your driving that I haven t heard before, you can go. The guy thinks for a second and says, Last week my wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back! Have a nice weekend, said the officer. A MAN IS IN A BAR A man is in a bar and falling off his stool every couple of minutes. He is obviously drunk. So the bartender says to another man in the bar: "Why don't you be a good Samaritan and take him home." The man takes the drunk out the door and to his car and he stumbles at least ten times.

DEAR DOGS, When I say to move, it means go someplace else, not switch positions with each other so there are still two dogs in the way. The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest. The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn t help, because I fall faster than you can run. I cannot buy anything bigger than a king size bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue to sleep on the couch to ensure your comfort. Look at videos of dogs sleeping, they can actually curl up in a ball. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space used is nothing but doggy sarcasm. My compact discs are not miniature Frisbees. For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, try to turn the knob, or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. In addition, I have been using bathrooms for years, canine attendance is not mandatory. The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dogs butt. I cannot stress this enough. It would be such a simple change for you. MY GIRLFRIEND IS OUT IN THE CAR A man had been drinking at the bar for hours when he mentioned something about his girlfriend being out in the car. The bartender, concerned because it was so cold, went to check on her. When he looked inside the car, he saw the man's friend, Dave, and his girlfriend kissing one another. The bartender shook his head and walked back inside. He told the drunk that he thought it might be a good idea to check on his girlfriend. The fellow staggered outside to the car, saw his buddy and his girlfriend kissing, then walked back into the bar laughing. "What's so funny?" the bartender asked. "That stupid Dave!" the fellow chortled, "He's so drunk, he thinks he's me!" FOUR NUNS Four nuns were attending a baseball game. Four men were sitting directly behind them. Because their habits were partially blocking the view, the men decided to badger the nuns hoping that they d get annoyed enough to move to another area. In a very loud voice, the first guy said, "I think I m going to move to Utah. There are only 100 nuns living there." Then the second guy spoke up and said, "I want to go to Missouri, there are only 75 nuns living there." The third guy said, "I want to go to Texas, there are only 50 nuns living there."
