Joke: The Cobbler & Misc
While digging out suitcases to prepare for his retirement vacation,
touring Europe, Solly happened across an old, yellow piece of paper.
It was a ticket from a cobbler shop he had been given only days before
he fled the war with just the few meager belongings he could carry.
Solly detoured from his tour group's itinerary to visit his old village
again. He found the cobbler's shop there, just as he remembered it, so
he went in with the ticket.
"You may not even still have them, but they were dark brown brogues with
light brown laces," Solly explained. "I brought them in a long time ago
to be re-soled."
The old cobbler took the ticket into the back room and returned in less
than a minute. "Yes, they're here," said the cobbler. "Come back next
Tuesday and they'll be ready."
Above average intelligence has always run in

The first module of an international space station has been completed
and is ready for shipment to the launch pad. In order to make the space
station as much like planet Earth as possible, this first component will
be a Starbucks.
