TRACKS - HUMOR AND ODD STORIES
"Ashes to Ashes and Dust
to Dust." You've heard the old statement usually
said by a local priest at the funeral of a loved one.
Consider this odd story from England for your enjoyment.
An English woman and her family of 8 children are
on the brink of bankruptcy and foreclosure. She decides
she wants to go out and play BINGO and will take MOM
with her. However MOM-isnt MOM as we know it. For
good luck-MOM came along-URN and ALL.
Thats right folks-she put the urn right up on the
bingo table. Guess what? She hits it big winning the
jackpot of $100,000! Mom and family have last been
heard to be on their way to better times resolving
the bankruptcy and foreclosure issues. It seems Mom-was
still watching out for her daughter and family-I wonder-if
we could possibly be on the verge of a new fad-I shudder
to think of it-Happily mom and family are enjoying
their new found luck . HMMM-my moms been gone since
94-if youre listening mom-send some good luck my way-I
need all the help I can get!
Another story in my files is called Blurred
Vision and is also from England. It seems one
of Britains Finest Police departments
received a phone call from a man who stated he went
out to his car and found that his whole steering wheel
and entire dash board were missing.. Hed never seen
anything like it.(Come to think of it-how many want
to find our car like that-truthfully-one time a friends
car was broken into and the entire dashboard cut out-Bless
their thieving hearts- they did it right during church
Continuing our story- The British police took an initial
report.. A few minutes later-the man called back-this
time it was noted he had been obviously drinking heavily
and saidForget the first call-I crawled into
the back seat of my car and thought someone STOLE
my dashboard-isnt that the FUNNIEST thing you ever
heard of-aha-ha-ha-ha-ha as he laughingly hung
up the phone. The police did find the bar and the
man who made the phone call and arrested him for DWI.
It has been rumored that the staff were given extra
time to fill out their paperwork-due to the laughs
and re-tellings of the story to the other officers.
While DWI is no laughing matter-Englands police got
the job done-with a little humor to spare! Last heard-the
jolly gentleman is well and back to his normal lifestyle.
Got a funny story or oddity of life you want to share-let
me know and maybe well post it on the web for others
