Meet the Lemon Squeezer!!



At a bar in New York City the Bartender was so sure that he was the strongest man around, that he offered a standing $1000 bet.
The bartender would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass and then hand the lemon to a patron. Anyone who could squeeze two more drops of juice out of it would win the money.
Over the years, many people had tried .... weightlifters, longshoremen, etc. but nobody had ever been able to do it.
One day a scrawny little fellow came into the bar, wearing thick glasses and a polyester suit. He sat down, ordered a glass of beer and stared looking around the bar. After reading the sign on the wall about the lemon challenge, he said in a small voice.
"I was just reading your sign and I'd like to try the bet."
After the laughter had died down the bartender said, "OK...."
He grabbed a lemon and squeezed all the juice he could out of it.  
Then he handed the wrinkled remains of the rind to the little fellow.
But the crowd's laughter turned to total silence as the man clenched his little fist around the lemon and six drops fell into the glass!!
As the crowed cheered, the bartender paid the guy.
"Do you mind if I ask what do you do for a living?"
The little fellow quietly replied.
"I work for the Internal Revenue Service!"

People don't want to pay taxes but they still want their roads paved and their electical grid and their many safety nets ... go figure. Guess it is like getting water out of a stone these days. Very funny, Sylvia ... I can always count on you for getting my day started with a smile.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
