WELCOME to TUESDAY JANUARY 25, 2021
Here’s The Story…..
We had been up in the attic together doing some cleaning. The kids uncovered an old manual typewriter and asked, “Hey Mom…what’s this?” “Oh, that’s an old typewriter,” she answered, thinking that would satisfy their curiosity. “Well what does it do?” they asked. “I’ll show you,” she said and returned with a blank piece of paper. She rolled the paper into
the typewriter and began striking the keys, leaving black letters of print on the page. “WOW!” they exclaimed, “that’s really cool…but how does it work like that? Where do you plug it in?”
“There is no plug,” she answered. “It doesn’t need a plug.”
“Then where do you put the batteries?” they persisted.
“It doesn’t need batteries either.” she continued.
“Wow! This is so cool!” they exclaimed. “Someone should have invented this a long time ago!” 😳
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a HAPPY TUESDAY 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 literature buff, my friend Larry installed an answering machine on his telephone.
Instead of the usual instructions about leaving a message, Larry recorded a parody
of Hamlet’s famous soliloquy: “To speak, or not to speak, that is the question. Whether
’tis nobler in the mind to leave a message after the beep, or to take arms against a sea
of answering machines, and by opposing, end them. To dial, to speak, no more.
Thus answering machines do make cowards of us all.” 😬
Mondays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Auda will not come to Aqaba. Not for money… for Feisal… nor to drive away the Turks. He will come… because it is his pleasure.”
“Thy mother mated with a scorpion.”
Answer: Lawrence of Arabia!
In this scene British Lieutenant T.E. Lawrence (a.k.a. Lawrence of Arabia, played by Peter O’Toole), the eccentric British officer in World War I who united the desert tribes of Arabia against the Turks, is attempting to convince the various Arab tribes to unite into one big army and cross the Nafud Desert to attack the port city of Aqaba from the rear. The Turks’ artillery pieces are intended to defend against a sea attack and cannot be turned inland. He insightfully sizes up an important Arab leader (Anthony Quinn) and says line one. When Auda realizes Lawrence has said the right thing to make him agree, he replies with line two. This movie is based on a true story. In the 1963 Academy Awards, “Lawrence of Arabia” won seven Oscars, including Best Picture. Both Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif were nominated for Oscars, but neither won. This is one of those movies that should be seen on a wide screen to be fully appreciated. The desert vistas filmed by director David Lean are breathtaking in their beauty.
