WELCOME to FRIDAY JANUARY 28, 2021
Here’s The Story…..
Rosie Hall buys a self-assembly, flat-pack, cupboard from her local
Homebase store. Reaching home Rosie reads the instructions carefully, counts the pieces then assembles the cupboard in the bedroom. It looks really great and she is delighted. Now, Rosie lives near a railway line and as the train passes by the cupboard collapses. Undaunted by this misfortune she re-reads the
instructions and reassembles the cupboard. Once more, another train passes
and the whole cupboard collapses again. Rosie now frustrated and thinking that
she must have done something “wrong” re-re-reads the instructions and re-re-assembles
the cupboard. Shortly, a train passes and the whole cupboard collapses yet again for the
3rd time. Rosie is now fed up, cross and rather angry so she ‘phones the customer
service department. She is told that this is quite impossible and that
they’ll send along a fitter to take a look. The fitter arrives and assembles the cupboard.
Again, a train passes and the cupboard collapses. Completely baffled by this unexpected event, the
fitter decides to reassemble the cupboard and sit inside it to see whether
he can find out what causes the cupboard to collapse. At this point,
Rosie’s husband comes home, sees the cupboard and says, ‘Oh, that’s a
splendid looking cupboard,’ and he opens it to look inside. The fitter, who had been
wondering how to explain his position in Rosie’s bedroom cupboard, blurts out,
‘You probably won’t believe me, but I’m standing here waiting for a train.’😳
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT WEEKEND people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

with the results of other people’s thinking. -Steve Jobs

be without flavor. -Eleanor Roosevelt

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
My friend once called a few house painters to his house for some work. He wanted
them to paint his porch. After a few hours, the house painters came back for the
payment as their work was complete. Before leaving they told my friend that they
had enjoyed painting his car, but it is not really a Porsche. 😳
Thursdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“You don’t wanna wait for your share?”
“Naw, I’d just blow it.”
Answer: The Sting!
In this scene (the final scene in the movie) con men Johnny Hooker (Robert Redford) and Henry Gondorff (Paul Newman) and a crew assembled by them have successfully pulled off an elaborate con against gangster Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). Gondorff asks Hooker with line one about waiting for his share of the proceeds, but Hooker knows himself and replies with line two. Besides, he is immensely satisfied at getting revenge for the death of his former partner Luther Coleman (Robert Earl Jones), whose killing was ordered by Lonnegan. There is a wonderful surprise ending, which I won’t reveal in case you haven’t seen it! In the 1974 Academy Awards “The Sting” won seven Oscars, including Best Picture. The 1969 movie “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” was the only other feature film Paul Newman and Robert Redford made together. Although the two actors had hoped to co-star in a third movie (most likely an adaptation of “A Walk in the Woods” by Bill Bryson), Newman’s advanced age made that unlikely. Newman died 9-26-08 at age 83. Much of the music in “The Sting” is ragtime written by African-American composer Scott Joplin around the beginning of the 20th century (with musical adaptations for this movie by Marvin Hamlisch).
Friday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from???
“Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?”
Thursday’s Quizzler is….
My first may be a group eager to get inside
My second is prized for what grows on its hide
My third, in the skull does reside
My fourth goes up and down with the tide
My fifth has water on every side
What word am I?
Answer: the word “quick”
The ordinals (i.e. first, second, third, fourth, and fifth) refer to the ordinal positions of the letters of the answer word “quick” (i.e. “q”, “u”, “i”, “c”, and “k” respectively). These letters have the same sound as the words described by each clue, as follows:
Line 1: first letter – q/queue – A “group” of people may form a queue (lineup) “to get inside” somewhere (e.g. a store).
Line 2: second letter – u/ewe – A ewe (female sheep) “is prized for” its wool.
Line 3: third letter – i/eye – An eye “does reside” “in the skull”.
Line 4: fourth letter – c/sea – The sea “goes up and down with the tide”.
Line 5: fifth letter – k/cay – A cay is an island, and therefore “has water on every side”.
Friday’s Quizzler is…….
A clock has 60 lines on it; one at each minute interval. Everyone knows that the hour and minute
hands point to the same line at 12:00. Can you figure out what time it is for these situations?
- The hour hand is exactly on one line, and the minute hand is exactly on the NEXT line.
- The hour hand is exactly on one line, and the minute hand is exactly on the PREVIOUS line.
