Three guys go in for a job interview, all at the
same office. The first one goes in for his interview and
the interviewer says, "Whats the first thing
you see when you look at me?"
The guy says, "Thats not too
hard, youve got no ears."
The interviewer says, "Thats
it, get out."
The second man takes his turn and is
asked the same question. The applicant replies, "Uh,
youve got no ears." The interviewer throws the
guy out, cursing and yelling. As he is leaving, the
second guy warns the third guy, "Listen man,
whatever you do, dont say he hasnt got any
ears. Hes so touchy with the ear thing."
"Okay," said man #3 on his
way into the office.
Once inside he is told, "Name the
first thing you notice when you look at me."
The guy answers, "Thats
easy, you wear contacts."
The interviewer was flabbergasted,
"How on earth did you know that, son?"
"What? Are you stupid? You
cant wear glasses, youve got no ears!"

But Judge and Mrs. Montague Will Be
a Wedding Remembrance.
A surprise party planned for tonight on
Judge and Mrs. E. J. Montague in celebration of their
40th wedding anniversary, which occurred a few days ago,
has been declared off in accordance with a
physicians advice, on account of the serious
sickness of the judge. The old settlers had planned the
affair in order that the anniversary might not pass so
quietly as the honored couple had anticipated.
A handsome and substantial array of
wedding anniversary gifts will be delivered this evening
by Mrs. Henrietta Harper, though Judge Montague is too
sick to endure the excitement of the party originally
planned. Among the many presents are a black suit of
clothes and hat for Judge Montague, and a handsome black
dress for Mrs. Montague.Exchange.

This one friend a mine was
familiar with the part of the country I grew
up in and mentioned on occasion that his dad
had a friend he visited from there.
Come ta find out, the
friend of the dad coached in the high school
I attended. I not only learned a little
football, basketball, and track from this
fella, I also worked for him doin odd
jobs durin a summer. On top a that,
this friends mother, Mrs. Jones, was my
first grade teacher.
Now Im guessin
both myself and the coach are wonderin
what the conversations are in the
friends family. As far as I can
remember we dont have any dark secrets
ta worry about. Now the guy that replaced
this coach my senior year, thats a
whole different story.
This is some fact, but

ART NOTES from
by Sally Armstrong,
Director of artCentral
With our community in full
holiday mode, and Christmas not far away, I am
enjoying the early decorations that I put up here
in our gallery for the opening of the current
exhibition. Now that the weather is cooling a
bit, I know folks are beginning to finalize their
shopping lists, and I hope you will not forget
the wonderful array of art and gift items we
always feature here in our gallery gift shop. In
addition to our fine art prints by Bob Tommey,
Lowell Davis, Tom Jones, and Andy Thomas we have
a number of colored art prints as well as
original unframed watercolors by other artCentral
member artists including Becky Golubski,
Elizabeth Pauly, Marilyn York and others.
Additionally, we feature many beautiful single
and gift sets of note paper cards with envelopes
done by several of our artists including Lora
Waring, Betsy Pauly, Marilyn York, Cheryl Church,
original domino and small framed art by dianne
baum, some original sculpture by Rebecca Perry
and Cha Tullis, contemporary jewelry by Marilyn
York of Kansas City, whimsical necklaces and
fiber art pins by Martha Goldman, and hand carved
wood pendants by Larry Oliver of Springfield. Two
of our artists have written books that we have
for sale, and dont forget our always
popular art-cookbook that at a $5.00 donation is
always a good standby gift to have available. We
continue our exhibition featuring Theresa
Rankins beautiful oil paintings this
weekend, December 2-4, Friday after 2:00 and
Saturday- Sunday, noon to 5:00, and this is our
final show of this season. If you have not had a
chance to come by and view this beautiful
exhibition I encourage you to do so on one of
those three days.
