Famous Great Line From "You Bet Your Life"

Groucho discovers he has a real Indian Chief on his TV program. He also discovers the Chief was a fighter pilot in the war.

"I bet the German's were surprised to see you wearing war paint and shooting arrows at them from a plane."

Famous Great Line

"Oh Groucho, hold me closer!"

"If I held you any closer, I'd be in back of you."

Gracie Allen's Classic Recipe for Roast Beef

1 large Roast Beef
1 small Roast Beef
Take the two roasts and put them in the oven.
When the little one burns, the big one is done.

Humor - Okay, What Now?

Two Jehovah Witnesses knocked on a door. The homeowner opened the door and invited them inside. They sat down in the living room. The homeowner served them refreshments then sat down and asked what they were going to talk about. They glanced at each other and said, "We don't know, we never got this far before."

Opening Morning in Iowa

This photo was sent to me by a co-worker of mine. He's a cousin to one of the hunters. Not bad for opening morning in Iowa, eh?

Snow Day???

Dear Boss,
I am afraid I will not be able to make it to the office today. I opened my front door and there are 20 inches of snow outside. I am attaching a photograph to prove it to you.

Your honest employee

View From My Deer Stand

Here's another, fist full of tags, wrong season, wrong weapon situation. 16 toms in front of me and not one darned thing I could do about it. No hens in the bunch.

Uh OH!

Uh OH! Wrong season, wrong weapon, armed with only a camera. Jus' my luck.

One More Frosty November Morning

Do you care to guess where this one was taken? Man o' man, was it ever cold. The deer were pretty safe this morning.

Another Frosty November Morning

Again, this was on Hwy CC about 1 mile north of US Hwy 160 in Dade County, Missouri. It was a bone chillin' morning.

Frosty November Morning

This was taken on a frosty November morning in 2005. The picture is of the Sac River Bridge on Hwy CC in Dade County, Missouri. It appears the fishermen had the entire lake to themselves.
