Many dead animals in the past changed to fossils while others preferred to be oil.

Nabbed

My friend, the manager of a grocery store, nabbed a shoplifter in the act.

He was escorting the suspect to the office in the front, near the cash registers, when the shoplifter broke from his grip and tried to run away.

After a scuffle, my friend pinned him against the wall and looked up to see a number of surprised customers staring at him.

"Everything's fine, Folks," he reassured them.

"This guy just tried to go through the express line with more than nine items."

Interactive Weather

Our part of the country had gone for weeks with little or no rain.

The TV weatherman, on his computerized map, was pointing out a thunderstorm 50 miles away. He placed his cursor over the region and clicked to zoom in on the storm.

Watching, my son Roger shook his head and said, "I sure wish he would click on that storm and drag it over here."
