Early one evening a gentleman scuttled out to his garage and pulled the lawn furniture out onto the driveway. Shortly after followed the lawnmower, a few gardening tools and a bicycle.

A curious neighbor wandered over and asked if he was going to have a garage sale.

“No,” replied the gentleman, “my son just bought his first car and right now he’s getting ready for a big date. He’ll be taking the car out soon to pick up the girl.”

“So what’s with all the stuff?” asked the neighbor.

“Well, after years of moving tricycles, toys and sports equipment out of the way every time I came home from work, I wanted to make sure the driveway was ready for him.” 😱😁😎


Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from??? “What in heaven’s name brought you to __________?” “My health. I came to __________ for the waters.”  “The waters? What waters? We’re in the desert!”  “I was misinformed.”

ANSWER: Casablanca!  In this scene American expatriate Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), owner of Rick’s Cafe Americain nightclub in Casablanca, Morocco, is talking to Police Chief Captain Renault (Claude Rains) about why Rick came to Casablanca in such dangerous times. After the Nazis defeated France in 1940, they occupied northern and western France but left southern France and many of France’s colonies in Africa relatively free under the Vichy government. However, the Vichy French had to pledge allegiance to Hitler, which meant that technically, Captain Renault was Rick’s enemy, although they remained personal friends. Captain Renault asks line one, Rick answers with line two, a puzzled Captain Renault responds with line three and Rick lightheartedly responds with line four. “Casablanca” tells the story of how Rick runs into his old love from Paris, Ilsa Laszlo (Ingrid Bergman), and then persuades her to leave Casablanca with her Resistance leader husband Victor (Paul Henreid). When they first meet again in Casablanca, Rick has the great line, “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”
