    Atta Lenza Crafater’s!Hey now, _Ripley’s Believe It Or Not _ fans! I’m staying with the golf theme but not for long. In so doing I hope I didn’t slide into PG rated zone but here goes.

    Two friends were playing golf when one pulled out a cigar but he didn’t have a lighter so he asked his friend if he had one.

    “I sure do,” he replied, and reached into his golf bag and pulled out a big 12-inch BIC lighter. “WOW!” said the first guy, “Where did you get that monster?” Second guy says, “I got it from my genie.” “You have a genie?” the first guy asks.

    “Yep, he’s right here in my golf bag.” the guy says. He opens his golf bag and out pops a real-looking genie. The friend says, “I’m a good friend’s person of your master. Will you grant me a wish?” “Yes, I will,” the genie replies. So the friend asks the genie for a million bucks.

    “Done!” the genie replied and hops back into the golf bag. Suddenly the sky begins to darken and a million ducks envelop the golfers.

    “Hey,” yells the bummed out golfer. I asked your genie for million bucks, not a million ducks.”

    “Sorry," the other golfer replied, “He’s hard of hearing. And besides, think about it. Do you really think that I’d ask a for a 12-inch BIC?”

    BADABOOM!!! Was that OK? Hope so cause that’s my time and you know what that means. Yep. It means Silver. Out! Stay well, Folks, and keep reading Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Comic

    I have not walked on water for over two millennia, so I hope there is a bridge that allows one to walk south there.

    I’ve often wondered if I’d be completely useless if I’d lived before I could have glasses. “Look at that poor blind broad. That’s the seventh time she’s gotten knocked down by a horse.”

    If you are in Detroit and walk South, you will walk into the Detroit River. The Ambassador Bridge and the Tunnel don’t allow pedestrians.

    The western-most tip of Virginia is farther west than Detroit.

    If you find yourself in Detroit I would advise you not to try to walk anywhere.

    The forerunner to glasses was a clear glass sphere or ball that was cut in half, polished, and used for magnification, primarily to help monks read manuscripts, and called reading stones. Then they hollowed out the flat side to make them more convex and more corrective for sight. Italy was big on glasswork.

    Does this mean Canadians can just walk in across the border and head north too?

    When I was a kid, we read that item about Detroit and Canada. Except, it was “If you fly directly south from Detroit …” . We didn’t believe it. Dad said to look at a map. So it was true. Then we looked at a more detailed map. We found it didn’t work if you started from the western part of Dedroit.

    When walking south out of Detroit, use a bridge so you don’t drown in the Detroit River.

    Another Alice through the looking glass as this one must have lived most of her life in amazement at the truly ridiuculous political changes that took place during her lifetime. Spent most of her time avoiding the flows of BS from candidates who wanted her endorsement.

    So, how did they keep them in place? Were they the first form of pince-nez that held themselves in place by friction?

    Alice didn’t vote for her father or the first 7 presidents of her lifetime because women didn’t have the right to vote.

    “Walk”? What if you drive south?

    Glasses were temporarily banned when Italian men quit making passes.

    My father’s 1972 Ford Gran Torino was technically a foreign car.

    It was assembled at a Ford plant in Windsor, Ontario.
