WELCOME to THURSDAY May 20, 2021
Here’s the story….
A new supermarket opened near my house. It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain. When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing, and you experience the scent of fresh mown hay.
In the meat department, there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks with onions. When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle, and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying. The bread department features the tantalising smell of fresh baked bread & cookies. I don’t buy toilet paper there anymore.😳
That’s my story and I’m sticking too it! Have a GREAT THURSDAY! people, stay safe, and
whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A blonde was playing Trivial Pursuit one night. It was her turn. She rolled the dice
and she landed on Science & Nature. Her question was, “If you are in a vacuum
and someone calls your name, can you hear it?”
She thought for a time and then asked, “Is the vacuum on or off?” 😳
Wednesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Kids are scared of the dark.”
“You’re afraid of the dark, too, Marv.”
Answer: Home Alone!
In the events leading up to this scene, the large family of Kevin McAllister (Macaulay Culkin) accidentally leaves him behind when it rushes to the airport to go to France for their Christmas vacation (just prior to the family leaving, Kevin had been sent to the attic for misbehaving). Kevin prepares to spend Christmas alone, but becomes aware of two house burglars (played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) casing his neighborhood. In this scene, the burglars plan to burglarize Kevin’s house after dark, after they become aware he is home alone. Marv (Daniel Stern) is pleased by this plan and says line one. His partner Harry (Joe Pesci) responds with line two. In the 1991 Academy Awards “Home Alone” was nominated for two Oscars but didn’t win either. The posters and DVD cases for this movie (showing a wide-eyed Culkin with both hands on his face) is often compared to the famous painting “The Scream” by Edvard Munch.
