WELCOME to Wednesday July 3, 2019
My friend called a Venetian-blind repairman to come pick up a faulty blind. The next morning, while the family was at breakfast, the doorbell rang. My friend’s wife went to the door, and the man outside said, “I’m here for the Venetian blind.” Excusing herself in a preoccupied way, the wife went to the kitchen, fished a dollar from the food money, pressed it into the repairman’s hand, then gently closed the door and returned to the table. “Somebody collecting,” she explained, pouring the coffee.😳 That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a Wonderful Wednesday and a great July 4th people & whatever you do, don’t forget to LAFF IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!
“What’s another word for Thesaurus?” – Steven Wright
As the woman was instructing the new maid on the great care required in handling certain valuable household objects. She pointed to the dining room and said with great satisfaction, “That table goes back to Louis the Fourteenth.” “Oh, that’s nothing,” the maid interjected. “My whole livingroom set goes back to Sears the fifteenth.”😱😁😎
Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “I pity your country ignorance from my heart.”
“And I despise your citified claptrap.”
Answer: Tom Jones!
In this scene 18th century London resident Miss Western (Edith Evans) is visiting her country farmer brother, Squire Western (Hugh Griffith), and speaks to him from a second-floor balcony. She considers him an uncouth country bumpkin. He considers her a pretentious citified busybody. She says line one and he replies with line two. She also says, “Brother, as I am here to stay awhile I shall sign a peace treaty with you.” This hilarious comedy tells the story of Tom Jones (played as a young adult by a young Albert Finney), a child of unknown parentage who is raised as a gentleman in 18th century England. “Tom Jones” is based on English author Henry Fielding’s classic 1749 novel “The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling” and is one of my all-time favorites (the version with Albert Finney, Susannah York, and Hugh Griffith).
