A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest.
After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."
The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?" "Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet..
"How can you be so sure?" she protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."
The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.
The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.
The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."
The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..
The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"
The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $150."

Let men be wise by instinct if they can, but when this fails be wise by good advice.

Wow. We've just got tornados, hail, heavy rain and floods. Kind of fun to all get in the Big Guy's Mancave and watch the weather channel. Just 60 miles from us the state capital Jefferson City had a really bad tornado and killed 3 people. They are facing another one as I write.

Very strange driving up the mountain last night in heavy snow. At the end of May. Thank heavens it wasn't sticking.

Daffodils were great this year, just gone about a week ago. Planted them in the fall, divided among all kinds of other plants. I think they help keep the gophers away (well, I hope).

I stand corrected. Apparently tulips are mildly toxic.

Tulips aren't toxic. Daffodils are. I plant them whenever the companies ship them to me. I think it's Oct.

In the fall - when would you stick those jokers in the ground?
Anyone ??
