Transporting a Dryer

Don't buy the first tiny travel dryer you find. Buying a travel dryer can be as difficult as choosing where to go on vacation!

Remember Charm Bracelets?

I remember when I got my charm bracelet back in my school days. I didn't have my portable hair dryer charm (shown above) yet. The bracelet only came with one charm on it, a small gold toaster. I could see then that it would be a small appliance charm bracelet! That excited me. It isn't easy finding small electrics charms, which makes it all the more valuable. And sentimental, as my parents both loved small dangerous appliances and passed that love along to me. I will never forget my mother standing nearby with an amused smile on her face watching a tiny little me trying to get my piece of toast out of the toaster with a metal fork. The shock I got from that little action pushed me into the air--and did it ever TINGLE in a scary way. So I guess that's why the first charm was a toaster. A nice little memory of childhood folly.

Theme: Amusement... Not.


even a hot pink adam sandler with a pricey portable magical hair dryer does not bring me any amusement.

The Priest and The Hair Dryer

The Hair Dryer
A distinguished young woman on a flight from Switzerland asked the Priest beside her, "Father, may I ask a favor?" "Of course. What may I do for you?"

"Well, I bought an expensive woman's electronic hair dryer for my mother's birthday. The dryer is unopened and well over the Customs limits; and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there any way you could carry it through Customs for me? Under your robes perhaps?"

"I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you: I will not lie."

"With your honest face, Father, no one will question you."

When they reached the Customs area, she let the priest go ahead of her.

The official asked: "Father, do you have anything to declare?"

"From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare."

The official thought this answer strange, so asked, "And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?"

"I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused."

Roaring with laughter, the official said, "Go ahead, Father."
