Benjamin West, in his later years, described how he became a painter. One day his mother left him with his sister Sally. Without Mother to object, he found bottles of colored ink and proceeded to paint Sally's portrait. In addition, he messed up the kitchen. When his mother returned, she said nothing about the kitchen. Picking up the paper he was working on, she exclaimed, "Why, it's Sally!" And she rewarded his effort with a kiss.

The great painter Benjamin West said, "My mother's kiss that day made me a painter."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

Billy Brown was summoned to court to appear as a witness in a lawsuit.

The prosecutor opened his questioning with, "Where were you the night of August 24th?"

"Objection!" said the defense attorney. "Irrelevant!"

"Oh, that's okay," said Billy from the witness stand. "I don't mind answering the question."

"I object!" the defense said again.

"No, really," said Billy. "I'm quite happy to answer."

The judge ruled: "If the witness insists on answering, there is no reason for the defense to object."

So the prosecutor repeated the question: "Where were you the night of August 24th?"

Billy replied brightly, "I can't remember."

The mine operator called the nearby state prison and asked them to send over a safecracker to open his jammed safe. Soon a guard and a convict showed up. The safe cracker spun the dials, listened intently, and calmly opened the safe door.

"Well," said the mine operator, "what do you think I owe you?"

The prisoner said, "Uh, the last time I opened a safe, I got $25,000."
