Who You Gonna
Listen To?
Ever since I was a child,
I’ve always had a fear of
someone under my bed at
night. So I went to a shrink and
told him I’ve got problems.
“Every time I go to bed, I
think there’s somebody under
it. I’m scared. I think I’m go-
ing crazy.”
“Just put yourself in my
hands for one year,” said the
shrink. “Come talk to me three
times a week and we should be
able to get rid of those fears.”
“How much do you charge?”
“Eighty dollars per visit,”
replied the doctor.
“I’ll sleep on it,” I said.
Six months later, the doctor
met me on the street.
“Why didn’t you come to
see me about those fears you
were having?” he asked.
“Well, eighty bucks a visit
three times a week for a year
is an awful lot of money! A
bartender cured me for $10.
I was so happy to have saved
all that money that I went and
bought me a new pickup!”
“Is that so?” with a bit of
an attitude he said. “And how,
may I ask, did a bartender cure
you?”
“He told me to cut the legs
off the bed! Ain’t nobody un-
der there now!!!”

Do Not Dial 90#


On Your Phone
I dialed “0” to check this
out. I asked the operator
who confirmed that this was
correct. (I also checked out
Snopes.com; this is true, and
also applies to cell phones!)
I received a telephone call
recently from an individ-
ual identifying himself as
an AT&T service technician
(could also be Telus) who
was conducting a test on the
telephone lines. He stated that
to complete the test, I should
touch nine (9), zero (0), the
pound sign (#), and then hang
up. Luckily, I was suspicious
and refused.
Upon contacting the tele-
phone company, I was in-
formed that by pushing 90#,
you give the requesting in-
dividual full access to your
telephone line, which enables
them to place long distance
calls billed to your home
phone number. I was further
informed that this scam has
been originating from many
local jails/prisons.
The GTE Security De-
partment requested that this
information be shared with
everyone. After I checked with
Verizon, they also said it was
true, so do not dial 90# for
anyone!!!

leaving other tables available
for those who would just like
to sit quietly and read. Where
else can anyone find a place
to do a jigsaw puzzle, leave it
unfinished, and return the next
day to note some pieces were
inserted, making the job much
easier? We like to borrow the
500 piece puzzles for home. A
corkboard (24” x 36”) fits on
the dining table and can easily
be moved and hidden under
the bed when guests come.
But the 1,000 piece puzzles
are best suited for our library
with wonderful lighting. Visi-
tors are always amazed to see
completed puzzles on display
for a week.
They add beauty, as does the

Our Village welcomes back
our seasonal visitors, and,
as always, we accept dona-

that reflect the light, foreign
language books, and most
needed are Large Print books.
Paperbacks seem to come in
by the dozen, and leave the
same way, so feel free to do-
nate some in good condition.
Magazines multiply, espe-
cially if they are weeklies, and
will be transported to the big
yellow bins outside once they
are out of date.
Criticism and complaints
are heard elsewhere, at the
pools, on the buses, in the
clubhouse, but happily not at
our library. Let’s have a posi-
tive attitude everywhere!
Our wishes for Peace and
Goodwill go to all during this
approaching holiday season. o
