Thanks for the Riddle in the last issue. I answered all the questions correctly (though I had to guess at a couple) and I guess that make me a Howdy certified “Geezer”. And that is O.K. since the only requirement is to live long enough and retain enough useless information to answer your riddle. But since you concocted the riddle, you must be a Geezer too! (If you’re not a Geezer, I hope you live long enough to enjoy it.)
That riddle brought back memories. Seeing my mom ironing with that RC sprinkler bottle, the wax bottles of sugar water, and I had a “Butch” flat top and used that pink wax until I was 27 years old. Also fighting to beat my sister to get the milk bottle first, so I could pull that paper seal off and get that first glass of cream rich milk. It sure did bring back memories!
I also want to thank you for your response to Gregg. I have heard so many parents on the talk shows complain that parenting is so hard and kids don’t come with an instruction book. Guess they never heard of the Bible!!!
And another note, I have heard Christians say, “The Bible says it and I believe it and that settles it!” WRONG! If the Bible says it, THAT SETTLES IT! The word of God trumps any person’s approval.
Keep up the good work Howdy! You are an oasis of faith and reason in a desert of secular idiocy.

I don't know how my email address got on your list, but I have immensly enjoyed every email I have received from you since. The riddles are fun, the humor is great, and the controversial topics are enlightening. My friends all enjoy reading these emails with me. Thank you so much for all your hard work in making "Thoughts and Humor" the one email I look forward to receiving every day.
1. Love the devotional type articles that you include. Thought provoking and insightful. 2. LOL funnies. 3. Timely, just when I think that I can't take one more serious moment, it's Howdy to the rescue. thank you. PS ~ What is a blogger?
Hi, Howdy, You are looking a little down in the mouth & gray these days. Cheer up! I have been cheered up by you for several years.(since 2000?) My biggest challenge is what to do with the many file boxes of printed newsletters I made because I was afraid you would stop sending them & I would not be able to keep them on my computer. By the way, I do have a life, it's just you have brightened it considerably & I love you for it. Keep up the good work! With gratit

I LOVE THOUGHT & HUMOR! How can you improve something that is already improved! Your Humor is hilarious and your Thought is thought provoking and "food for thought". Where else can you go to get GOOD clean humor? I believe if anyone has any questions about anything, they should check out T&H first for the answers. I have been receiving T&H for about 4 years (I believe). Just keep em comin!! And keep up the good work.
Howdy..You've given the world some much needed light and laughter and for that I am very thankful. YOu found our blog, we replied and here we are many months later thoroughly enjoying your giggles and puzzles. I often send them on to others.
For myself,although a spiritual minded person, I don't care for the religious or political articles, but that's my personal preferance. I get enough of that in the paper or on the evening news.
Sometimes when I'm in a hurry, I find having to open the links to read the jokes too much bother.And yet I know that by making us open the page there is more to enjoy.
All in all Howdy, we are so happy you came into our home waaay up here on the BC coast. Keep up the great work of putting a smile on our faces!!

Howdy, I think T&H is pretty awesome, but then it is written by a pretty awesome guy, so I wouldn't expect anything else but awesome. I sometimes have to delete the blogs due to lack of time, but can't help lovin' it all. Shirl
Yes, I can call you dear, since your email has become very dear to me - I've only been reading your email for a week. I have been receiving your email and deleting it since I had no idea what it was about or from whom it came. On Monday, I decided to open one of the email and am I glad I did! I have found your email to be both fun and uplifting thought and humor. It is great to have some good, clean humor and some very thoughtful info that points all to Jesus Christ.
Keep up your wonderful work. Many are (and will be) blessed by your effort. I, too, have passed on the email to others.
I like T & H, specifically the jokes and some of the political commentary. I find myself better armed with thought and humor in my day to day interactions.
I also appreciate the Christian content, and not worrying whether the jokes would be offensive. I feel for the poor UNC students who are the butt of the jokes. When I repeat the jokes, I just say there was this lady (or guy) and include a fake name for a university in the place of UNC.
I would prefer not to spend time accessing so many links to get to "the rest of the Story". If there were some way you could have a blind email list, I would love that; I've noticed a lot more spam since receiving your newsletter. Based on the names that are included on the spam I receive, it seems that the spammer is picking it up from your correspondence.
If you're receiving more SPAM, it's not because of us because we don't sell your address or use it for any other purpose.
You are receiving e-mail from us because it has been reported to us by a close associate of yours that you are in dire need of jocularity/ludicrousness. If you ever feel that this is not the case and that you might be receiving this missive/memorandum in error, please disregard or send back to your professor/colleague. Thank you!)
