A former Sergeant, having served his time with the Marine Corps, took a new job as a school teacher, but just before the school year started, he injured his back.

He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body.

Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn't noticeable.

On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school.

The punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, decided to see how tough he really was and was planning a vicious prank.

Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk.

Then a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and promptly stapled the tie to his chest…!!!!!

There was dead silence.

He had no trouble with discipline that year.

You just have to appreciate this one.

Young people forget that we old people had a career before we retired.....

Charley, a new retiree-greeter at Wal-Mart, just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, sharp-minded and a real credit to the company and obviously demonstrating their "Older Person Friendly" policies.

One day the boss called him into the office for a talk.

"Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job when you finally get here; but your being late so often is quite bothersome."

"Yes, I know boss, and I am working on it."

"Well good, you are a team player. That's what I like to hear.

Yes sir, I understand your concern and I will try harder.

Seeming puzzled, the manager went on to comment,

I know you're retired from the Armed Forces. What did they say to you there if you showed up in the morning late so often?"

The old man looked down at the floor, then smiled. He chuckled quietly, then said with a grin,

"They usually saluted and said, Good morning, Admiral, can I get your coffee, sir?

Blonde Car Accident

One day, while a blonde was out driving her car, she ran into a truck.

The truck's driver made her pull over into a parking lot and get out of the car.

He took a piece of chalk and drew a circle on the pavement. He told her to stand in the middle and not leave the circle.

Furious, he went over to her car and slashed the tires.

The blonde started laughing.

This made the man angrier so he smashed her windshield.

This time the blonde laughed even harder.

Livid, the man broke all her windows and keyed her car.

The blonde is now laughing hysterically, so the truck driver asks her what's so funny.

The blonde giggles and replies, "When you weren't looking, I stepped out of the circle three times!"

I, King Screech, by Royal Proclamation, do hereby
send my Messenger, former King Tweet, to bring
news of the new kid. It is with a proud feeling, that
he will be joining us soon, and we have suitable quarters prepared for the little kid. My human, the Mom, has already made purchase of items to properly decorate it's quarters. A lovely place for residence with the 'Z' flock.

We are pleased to announce, the previously known
"new kid", or "IT", as we have referred to it at times.

Please meet our lovely WHITE FACE LUTINO, who from this day forward shall be referred to as 'JABBER', a lovely young female. And She's much to young for any male friends at this time.

Of the many suggestions for names we received, that one in particular just had a great impression on Mom. And we would like to thank INDIANA SAM and his Mom Debi for the great name for our little darling.

Set forth by my ROYAL SEAL.

Well, just a short one this morning, as I have to get mom and the old guy out the door for the bird show in Orlando.

Many of you have asked about the new kid, and due to the Holiday last week,the DNA Test is late getting back to us.

Just as soon as we get it, probably by the middle of the week, we will let everyone know what 'IT' is, and tell you the cute name we picked out for 'IT'. So many of you gave us great idea's and we're very thankful for your suggestion.

BUT, we have a name, and there is no OTHER real bird on all of BC with that name. It has to be totally unique, and different

We can't wait to get the results, and as it got the old guy climbing the walls. Kind of funny to watch that. We didn't think he was able to do that at his age. Hee hee.

Two Texas Highway Patrol Officers were conducting
speeding enforcement on Highway 77, just south of Kingsville , Texas .

One of the officers was using a hand-held radar device to check speeding vehicles approaching the town of Kingsville.

The officers were suddenly surprised when the radar gun began reading 300 miles per hour and climbing.

The officer attempted to reset the radar gun, but it
would not reset and then it suddenly turned off.

Just then a deafening roar over the mesquite tree tops on Highway 77 revealed that the radar had in fact, locked on to a USMC F/A-18 Hornet which was engaged in a low-flying exercise near this, its Naval Air home base ocation in Kingsville, Texas.

Back at the Texas Highway Patrol Headquarters in Corpus Christi the Patrol Captain fired off a complaint to the
U. S. Naval Base Commander in Kingsville for shutting down his equipment.

The reply came back in true USMC style:

"Thank you for your letter . . ."You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the Hornet had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked on to,
your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it, which is why it shut down."

"Furthermore, an air-to-ground missile aboard the fullyarmed aircraft had also automatically locked on to your equipment's location."

"Fortunately, he marine pilot flying the Hornet recognized the situation for what it was, quickly responded to the missile system alert status and was able to override the automated defense system before the missile was launched to destroy the hostile radar position on the side of Highway 77, south of Kingsville ."

"The pilot suggests you cover your mouths when swearing at them, since the video systems on these jets are very
high tech."

"Sergeant Johnson, the officer holding the radar gun,
should get his dentist to check his left molar. It appears the filling is loose.

Also, the snap is broken on his holster."

Truckstop Cafe

A trucker came into a truck stop cafe and placed his order. He said, "I want three flat tires, a pair of headlights and pair of running boards."

The brand new blonde waitress, not wanting to appear stupid, went to the kitchen and said to the cook, "This guy out there just ordered three flat tires, a pair of headlights and a pair of running boards. What does he think this place is, an auto parts store?"

"No," the cook said. "Three flat tires mean three pancakes, a pair of
headlights is two eggs sunny side up, and running boards are 2 slices of crisp bacon."

"Oh, OK!" said the blonde. She thought about it for a moment and then spooned up a bowl of beans and gave it to the customer.

The trucker asked, "What are the beans for, Blondie?"

I LOVE THIS ONE... ..........
She replied, "I thought while you were waiting for the flat tires, headlights and running boards, you might as well gas up!"

A man decided to take his wife out with him deer hunting.

She had never been on any kind of a hunt before and he wanted her to succeed, so he left her hidden in the bush while he tried to find deer that he could drive toward her.

All of the sudden he heard a shot where he had left his wife in the woods.

Then he heard loud voices so he ran back to see what was happening.

When he got there he saw his wife arguing with a man.

Just as he got close enough to hear the conversation, the man said, "OK, OK, it's your deer. Just let me get my saddle off of it first."

Annie's lesson in 'tiel genetics for Everyone.

Your little pinfeather is a WHITEFACE LUTINO. This is NOT an albino - albinism is caused by a single recessive gene that has to be paired with an identical gene to produce an albino offspring. White cockatiels come from two different genes - the whiteface gene and the lutino gene.

Lutino cockatiels are pale yellow; the lutino gene suppresses all gray coloration. To see what a lutino looks like, check out Marigold (226240).

Whiteface 'tiels have white faces and no cheek patches; the whiteface gene suppresses all yellow/orange coloring. BC examples of whitefaces include my frother Buddy Beak, and Pepper (168969).

So what happens when you combine the lutino gene with the whiteface gene? You get a 'tiel with no gray, yellow, or orange - in other words, pure white! The eyes are red as well, since the lutino gene is suppressing the iris coloration.

I love the picture of Pinfeather with his/her clutchmates. You can see that the parronts produced one whiteface lutino, two lutinos, and one normal pearl. I'm not sure what the parronts are but it's obvious they have some combination of whiteface, lutino, and pearl in their genetics.

You might be a reneck if...

Your father has ever said to you, "Shoot, son come on over t' the dark side.. .it'll be a hoot."

You have ever had your R-2 unit use its self-defense electro-shock thingy to get the bar-b-q grill to light.

The moonshine still you built on Endor is hidden so well even the Ewoks can't find it.

You have a stuffed womp rat anywhere in your home. You think the symbol for the Rebel Alliance should be the Confederate flag. More than half the droids you own don't function. The number of blasters you own exceeds your I.Q. You wonder why Luke and Leia gave up on getting married. You used a carbon-freezing chamber to mount the Wampa you shot while on vacation on Hoth.

Your moonshine is made on a real moon.

You don't like wearing a Jedi robe because it prevents access to the dip stored in your back pocket.

Sandpeople back down from your mama.

You've ever used Jedi mind control to talk your way out of a speeding ticket or DUI.

You've ever strangled someone with the force because they laughed at your accent.

The train was quite crowded and a U. S. Marine walked the entire length looking for a seat.

There seemed to be one next to a well-dressed French woman,

but when he got there, he saw it was taken by the woman's poodle.

The war-weary Marine asked, "Ma'am, may I have that seat?"

The French woman sniffed and said to no one in particular, "Americans are so rude. My little Fifi is using that seat."

The Marine walked the entire train again, but the only seat available was under that dog. "Please, ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired."

She snorted, "Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!"

This time the Marine didn't say a word; he just picked up the little dog,tossed it out the train window and sat down.

The woman shrieked, "Someone defend me! Put this American in his place!"

An English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up. "Sir, you Americans seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your autos on the wrong side of the road.

And now, sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong witch out the window.

Yeah we're getting a new bird to live with us. first I have to clear up a few questions I've been asked. First it won't be coming to live here in Florida, until October, cause that's when Aunt Vicki is coming to visit us. So until then the little pin feather will be living in Ohio. Still be hand feed, and the Aunt Nat will take over and properly train the little kids so it has good manner when it get's here to live with us. We don't want any wild Tiel with bad manners, hee hee.
