Bud's World

FUNNY (and real) SIGNS

On a maternity room door: "Push. Push. Push."
At a propane filling station: "Tank heaven for little grills."
In a veterinarian's waiting room: "Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!"
On a house's fence: "Salespeople welcome! Dog food is expensive."
At an optometrist's office: "If you don't see what you're looking for,
you've come to the right place."
At the electric company: "We would be de-lighted if you pay your bill.
However, if you don't, you will be."

At a towing company: "We don't charge an arm and a leg. We want tows.”
At a car dealership: “The best way to get back on your feet – miss a car payment.”
In a restaurant window: “Don’t stand there and be hungry. Come on in and get fed up.”

I was just wondering…
Why does unscented hairspray smell?
If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?

From the Choir Loft
Can you believe it’s already June? Seems like just a few days ago we had to make sure those “wet” spots on the asphalt weren’t “black ice.” This month, the chorus will begin singing its patriotic musical ‘Our flag was still there.’ On Saturday, June 28 we will be singing at the Willow Creek Winery immediately preceding the “finest fireworks in Western New York.” We can use all kinds of help! We need people to help us move equipment, we need people to help shuttle our singers to/from parking lots, we could use help with greeting/ushering etc. If you could offer some help, please contact the very tired Bud Lowery.
