This week's question...
"Where do you get the jokes from... sometimes they are kind of lame." - James from Milbank.
Ok, ok.... sometimes they make you laugh, sometimes they make you giggle, sometimes they make you groan. I hand-pick jokes for the paper that are family-friendly and non-offensive to any certain groups (well, except rednecks... just kidding - because I am one!). I will admit it is not that easy. A lot of the humor I come across is ok for the internet, but would never appear in our paper. So, I challenge you to send me a joke for the paper. You can email me or use the "Submit a Joke" tab on our website at www.LakeAreaTidbits.com. and I will give you credit for submitting it. Thanks in advance!
I was talking with a friend of mine about our first cars, so I wanted to share a picture of mine. It was a 1966 Mercury Parklane that my dad did some horse-trading for. (not really horses, it was trees because he had tree moving business at the time.)
I worked pretty hard to do my best body-work on it, but I was only 14 at the time, so it left a bit to be desired. We did get it painted all black and it really did look pretty good. I had an 8-track player with two tapes - The Everly Brothers and Waylon Jennings to listen to and I can sing every word when hear those songs, even to this day. The car had an interesting feature... you could roll down the rear window with a switch on the dash. I believe it was called the Breezeway Rear Window. Anybody that went to high school with me in Ortonville, MN will remember it... I believe it was dubbed the Bat-mobile at that time.
It is still down on my folks place, but unfortunately it went through a flood and just isn't in a good enough state to restore... or maybe not, we will see!
Thanks for reading Tidbits, see you all next week!
