thanked them for thanking him and there was no end
to the exchange but death.” -Evelyn Waugh
“The noblest of all dogs is the hot-dog; it feeds the
hand that bites it. -Laurence Peter
“Accuracy is to a newspaper what virtue is to a lady, but

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….
Hard to believe, but many of our customers at the bank still
don’t know how to swipe their card through the ATM card reader.
Because of this, my fellow tellers and I often find ourselves having
to explain how it’s done. One teller complained that she kept
getting odd looks every time she explained it. I found out why
when I overheard her tell one man, “Strip down facing me.” 😐😎
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“May I obey all of your commands with equal pleasure, sire.”
The Adventures of Robin Hood”
In the 1938 film, Robin and his band of Merry Men rob from the rich and give to the poor. Robin still has time to court Maid Marian and keep Prince John off the throne. The line is spoken in a serious moment at the end of the movie. King Richard says to Robin Hood; “My first command to you, my lord Earl, is to take in marriage the hand of the Lady Marian. What say you to that, Baron of Locksley?”. Robin Hood then replies with the quoted line.

Wednesday’s Quizzler is….
Seven letters are we,
Four different words we make.
Guess us or be ridiculed;
Your reputation’s at stake.
The first has pictures,
Paintings and such.
The second causes sneezing,
From ragweed or dust.
The third is an adverb,
It’s hard to explain
It’s the same as immensely
But it’s much more plain.
If you can act like a king,
this word you will sing.
These clues are sparse
This riddle may be tough.
But if you are smart
Then it will be enough.
Answer: Gallery, Allergy, Largely and Regally
A gallery has pictures and paintings
Allergies make you sneeze
Largely is somewhat difficult to describe – it is certainly a synonym for immensely, but not as strong.
Regally means to act royally, or kingly.
Thursday’s Quizzler is…….
12-year old Forrie Agincourt stayed with his Auntie Jenn Malheur while his parents drove to Prosper, Connecticut for a second honeymoon. It seemed that whatever Jenn would say, Forrie would twist around to almost the opposite phrasing, and vice versa.
Over the week, they conceived several sets of words that you might think were opposites. Each pair of definitions below involves two words that are spelled the same … except that the first start with “pro” and the second starts with “con”. Forrie gave the list to his parents when they returned. Without conferring, Prospera was confident of 5 of the 6 problems, conceding only one; Connor consequently probed only 4. Can you connect on all six?
1. division of Canada or France — win over
2. argue against — competition
3. geometry tool — builder
4. a stage play — property of electrical transmission
5. intellectually deep — befuddle
6. advance — legislature
