Weekly Announcements Friday September 14th, 2017

Good Day Cleveland!

I know you have missed the weekly announcements, lol!

Well, guess what? Here they are!

Something to make you Smile!
This joke comes from fellow federationist, Wanda Sloan, Miami Valley
Chapter, Enjoy!

An elderly gentleman was very frustrated because he could not catch
the mouse in over 2 weeks.

His son came over to see if he could help.  So his son said, why don’t
you put a piece of cheese in the trap. ?    His Father replied, I
don’t have any more cheese.

The son said, then just put a picture of a piece of cheese in the
trap.  The mouse won’t know the difference.  His Father agreed and
this is what was done.

The next day the elderly gentleman walked over to the trap to see if
the mouse had been caught.  Well, not only was the picture of the
cheese gone

But a picture of a mouse was there instead.

Ha, HA, HA! If you have a joke or quote to share, send to Cheryl at
