Good Morning y'all, here I am with this week's Traffic Report.
This is the Weekly Traffic Report that is sent to all of the
HumorList subscribers once a month.

There are only a few days left in April, which was our "Every
Member Get A Member" month.  While it is true we obtained
360 new subscribers so far, you can notice from the numbers
below that our totals are still over 2,000 less than this
same time last year.

I'd like to ask each of you, who have not done so yet, to sign
up a new member this week.

                                          JimJr

To verify current addresses, our server randomly selects subscribers
and sends an e-mail which you may be asked to respond to in order to
renew/continue your subscription.

Errors returned from your Server to our ListServer may cause your
name to be dropped from the list.

If you feel, at any time, that you have been dropped from the list,
or have stopped receiving mail from the ListServer, simply resubscribe.
You will not receive duplicate mailings to the same address; if you
are already subscribed, the ListServer will verify that.

And now for a contribution of humor:

   Like most married couples, Mrs JimJr and I have had our disagreements.
Tired of the "cold shoulder" after a few days, I put on my best contrite
puppy dog look and said, "I'm sorry hon.  I've been thinking it over and
decided that you were totally right and I was wrong."
   "You're too late !"  she snapped.  "I've changed my mind !!!"
