50th Aniversary ( In MY Mail)

by MKay / July 10, 2005 10:42 PM PDT

A man and his wife were about to celebrate 50 years together. Their
three kids, all very successful and wealthy agreed to a Sunday dinner
in honor of their parents. As usual, they were all late and had a
varied assortment of excuses.


"Happy anniversary mom and dad," gushed son number one...."Sorry I'm
running late...had an emergency, you know how it is, didn't have time
to get you both a present."


"Not to worry," said the dad. "The important thing is that we're all
together today."


Son number two arrived and announced, "You and mom still look great
dad. Just flew in from L.A. and didn't! have time to get you a
present... sorry."


"It's nothing," said the father, glad you were able to be here."


Just then the daughter arrived. "Hello you both, happy anniversary! I'm
sorry but my boss is sending me out of town and I was really busy
packing.... so I didn't have time to get you guys anything."


Again the father said, "I really don't care, at least the five of us
are together today."


During dinner, the father put down his knife and fork, looked up and
said, "Listen you three, there's something your mother and I wanted to
tell you for a long time. Well... your mother and I came to this
country penniless and desperate. Despite this, we were able to raise
each of you and send you to college. We always knew we loved each other
but..... never got around to getting married."


The three kids gasped and said, "You mean we're ******** ?"


"Yep," said the dad....."and cheap ones too...."

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
