BEING CREATIVE WITH TROUBLESOME KIN
You are working on your family genealogy and for sake of example, let’s say that your great-great
uncle, Remus Starr, a fellow lacking in character, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889.
A cousin has supplied you with the only known photograph of Remus, showing him standing on the gallows.
On the back of the picture are the words: “Remus Starr: Horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial Prison, 1885.
Escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged, 1889.”
Pretty grim situation, right? But let’s revise things a bit. We simply crop the picture, scan in an enlarged image
and edit it with image processing software so that all that is seen is a head shot.
Next, we rewrite the text: “Remus Starr was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His business empire
grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad.
Beginning in 1885, he devoted several years of his life to service at a government facility, finally taking leave
to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned
Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor
when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.” 😳😳
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a HAPPY TUESDAY! people, stay safe, and whatever you do,
don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

for a park in Japan that will be a combination of a hot springs spa and an amusement
park. It either sounds nice or like a sanitary nightmare.” -James Corden

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
One day on his way to work, my husband stopped at the cafeteria as it began to rain.
Forgetting that he hadn’t brought an umbrella, he reached for the nearest one when he got up to leave.
“That’s my umbrella,” a woman immediately scolded.
Abashed at his mistake, he apologized and walked on to his office. He was drenched by the time he arrived.
Once there, he discovered three umbrellas that he had left in the office over the months, and
he decided to bring them home at the end of the day.
That afternoon he ran into the same woman who had confronted him earlier.
She looked at the umbrellas, then at him, and tartly remarked:
“Did real well for yourself today, didn’t you?” 😳😳😳
