Quotes of the Day
Were it offered to my choice, I should have no objection to a repetition of the same life
from its beginning, only asking the advantages authors have in a second edition
to correct some faults in the first.
There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting
what one wants, and the other is getting it.
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to
serve as a warning to others.😁
Everything has been figured out,
except how to live.
An autobiography is the story of
how a man thinks he lived.
When I have a kid, I wanna put him in one of those
strollers for twins, then run around the mall looking frantic. 😱😁😎
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes…. (For Felippe Cade)
A couple lived near the ocean and used to walk the beach a lot. One summer they noticed a girl who was at the beach pretty much every day. She wasn’t unusual, nor was the travel bag she carried, except for one thing; she would approach people who were sitting on the beach, glance around furtively, then speak to them. Generally the people would respond negatively and she would wander off, but occasionally someone would nod and there would be a quick exchange of money and something she carried in her bag. The couple assumed she was selling drugs, and debated calling the cops, but since they didn’t know for sure they just continued to watch her.
After a couple of weeks the wife said, “Honey, have you ever noticed that she only goes up to people with boom boxes and other electronic devices?” He hadn’t and said so. Then she said, “Tomorrow I want you to get a towel and our big radio and go lie out on the beach. Then we can find out what she’s really doing.” Well, the plan went off without a hitch and the wife was almost hopping up and down with anticipation when she saw the girl talk to her husband and then leave. The man walked up the beach and met his wife at the road. “Well, Is she selling drugs?” she asked excitedly. “No, she’s not,” he said, enjoying this probably more than he should have. “Well, What is it, then? What does she do?” his wife fairly shrieked. The man grinned and said, “She’s a battery salesperson.” Batteries?” cried the wife. “Yes,” he replied. She sells C cells by the sea shore. 😳😱😁
Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Come on, Norman, they’re openin’ up the bar.”
“We’ve just got to get organized. We’ve got to get organized!
The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming!
When this movie was released in 1966, the Cold War was very much a concern and the scenario depicted was both funny and serious. In the events leading up to this scene, Walt Whittaker (Carl Reiner) and his family are vacationing in a rented house on Gloucester Island, off the coast of New England. A Russian submarine captain, trying to get a glimpse of America through the sub’s periscope, gets too close to land and runs aground. A small party of Russian sailors headed by Lieutenant Rozanov (Alan Arkin) then head to land to try and commandeer a motorboat to pull the sub free. Local residents converge on the town center, after hearing various versions of how the Russians have invaded their island (the scenes just before this are a textbook example of how rumors get started). In this scene a local resident says line one (in a great New England accent). Frustrated Deputy Sheriff Norman Jones (Jonathan Winters) mutters line two. In the 1967 Academy Awards, “The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming” was nominated in four categories, including Best Picture (but lost to “A Man for All Seasons”).
Tuesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“What chance do you think you’d have of staying alive back there?”
“Well, I’m not so easy to kill.”
Monday’s Quizzler is….
Four legs have I, a sturdy fellow
A fuzzy back that isn’t yellow
But (often) green or (rarely) red
A den is where I make my bed
My keepers feed me colored balls
With sticks they store on my den walls
Sometimes I store them in my pouch
Sometimes deep in my belly; ouch!
That’s when you’ll see me acting strange
Instead of balls, I’ll eat your change
And that’s my cue to feed again
Chalk it up to hunger, friend!
Answer: A billiard (pool) table.
They have four sturdy legs and a green, fuzzy playing surface (snooker tables are sometimes red). Privately owned tables are often kept in the den (family room), and the cues are usually stored in a wall rack. Private tables simply have pouches beneath the pockets to catch the balls; coin-operated tables store the balls inside the table. To play again, you need to insert more coins. Note the use of “cue” and “chalk”; two essential billiard elements!
