Hello one and all! As we navigate these uncertain times, a little humor can go a long way. With apologies for the following, I hope it might cheer you up today. The jokes are taken from early Oliver Ames High School yearbooks (month and year noted).

Student: “An autoist coasting down a hill at a greater speed than allowed by the speed limit. If he stops, he will break the law of gravity.”
Boys are like Fords – always skipping!
Teacher: “There is a poll tax, income tax, and war tax. Can anyone name any more?”
Student: “Thumb tacks.”
Math teacher: “Now, Mr. Holmes, I want you to put some good time in on these examples.”
