“Nothing is impossible. Some things are just less likely than others.” – Jonathan Winters
Doug asks, “I know you’re crazy about that little daughter of yours, Bill. What are you going to do when she starts to date?”
Bill says, “I figure I’ll take the first young man aside, put my arm around his shoulder, and pull him close to me so that only he can hear. Then I’ll say, “Do you see that sweet, little young lady? She’s my only daughter, and I love her very much.
If you were thinking about touching, kissing, or being physically affectionate to her in any way, just remember…I don’t mind going back to prison.” 😐😁😎

Clue: A woodwind instrument that dates back to the mid 16th century.
The bassoon is a woodwind instrument that finds its origins in the dulcian, a Renaissance era woodwind instrument. The bassoon is commonly used to play bass and tenor-range music. Composers often write music for the bassoon. Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven all wrote pieces that feature the bassoon prominently.
Clue: A sweet treat that is sometimes made with nuts or raisins.
Toffee is a candy that is made by boiling molasses with butter. Common toffee flavors are rum & butter, chocolate, vanilla, chocolate, rum & raisin, and honeycomb.
Clue: A term that can be used to describe boats and ships.
A keel is a structural element of a ship that is called the “spine of the ship.” It is a long beam in the center of the ship that the hull is built around. Keel is an interesting word because some scholars believe it to be the first English language word ever recorded in writing.
Clue: A character in a courtroom.
An appeal, in law jargon, is the request to change a ruling made by one court. Often appeals are filed in higher courts that have the ability to reverse rulings made by lower courts. The party that files the appeal is appellant. The appellant wants the first ruling changed. The other party is the appellee. The appellee won the case in the lower court and wants the ruling to stay unchanged.
Clue: A Belgian language.
Walloon is a Romance language heard in Wallonia, Belgium. It sounds most like the French language. However, it is not a French dialect. People who speak the Walloon language are called Walloons.
