Great rebus.  Do I get the bonus point if I tell you Martin Luther King had a different one. 


What the Puck, Pen???  ;) ;) ;) Do I get a bonus point as well???

Okay boys you can both have a bonus point!  In fact as I'm feeling very generous I'll give you both an extra bonus point for the puns ;D

Aye up Jack

We actually had some sun this morning although we still have the chilly windy wind.  Been for a walk with Barbs which was lovely :)

My rebus today is a snippet of Shakespeare.  I think you'll find it easy peasy!

#3 #3 #2 9 (#4 + #5)

Please use the first name of the actor in picture one and lose the first letter. Past tense for picture two and lose the middle letter of what picture three is please.
A bonus point if you can name the play the quote comes from.


Ta ra a bit  :)

I just came in from chasing a huge cane toad around the back yard with my can of Stophop.   He has stopped hopping.

What did you think of the baby goanna in the tree.. I bet you just wanted to give it a cuddle.

Hi Jack

You made me roar with laughter :laugh:  The thought of you chasing the cane toad and then the comment that he stopped hopping just tickled the hell out of me!

I did wonder what that was in the tree.  If that's only a baby then I shudder to think what an adult goanna is like :o  As you can imagine I would have been running as fast as my short little legs would carry me in the opposite direction  :laugh:

I've been out for a walk with my old work friend Gill.  It's a tropical 12oc here today although the very windy wind makes it feel quite a bit cooler than that!

A quick rebus from me as I still have a few chores  :(  It's a film from the 1940's which had a remake about 40 years later.  It wont give you a headache.

#3 7 (#4 + #3) 6 (#2 + #4) #5 #6

Please use the first name of the gent at the front of picture two.  Replace the first two letters with just one.  You're not interested in Joel Garner but what he is (not a cricketer!)  Middle two letters of a four letter word.  Please change the fourth letter of picture six and all on one line.


A policeman sees a man driving around with a van full of penguins. He pulls the guy over and says, "You can't drive around with penguins in the town! Take them to the zoo immediately."
The guy obliges and drives away.
The next day, the officer sees the same man driving around with the van full of penguins again. This time, though, all the penguins are wearing sunglasses.
The police officer pulls the guy over and says, "I thought I told you to take these penguins to the zoo yesterday?"
The man replies, "I did, and today I'm taking them to the seaside."

Leave you with a very naff joke ;D

Thanks for the response.  Wouldn’t it be great to be a mind reader?

I think that’s called an ear worm.

I’ll leave you with a couple of photos taken on Bonnie’s walk on Tuesday.

Hi Jack

A flying visit as I'm doing chores and have to go shopping.

So sorry I mistakenly thought a soft shoe shuffle was a common expression for a bit of tap dancing :(  I should have just used somebody shuffling cards.  Thought that would be too obvious.  Ain't hindsight a wonderful thing? :-R

After solving your rebus I too now have an ear worm :laugh:

Great picture of Bonnie - she's enjoying the water

Hi Jack. Yes it was released in 1987 :)
Sorry I might have got confused & with the style of dancing.
Need my sleep  :-Y

Hi Jack

It's shaping up to be a busy clinic this morning.  A nice simple straightforward puzzle from me today.  It's a film released in the year Zoe was born.

9 (#5 + #4) #7

Please use the name of the character in the first picture and the actor's name in the second (lose the last letter) How might you describe what Mr Astaire is doing in three words? Last of the three words please!  All on one line.


My friend Barbs wanted a green jumper for her birthday...
so I bought her a frog!

I'm trying to sell a gate very cheaply...
there's no catch!

This tickled me :laugh:  Nearly lunchtime hurrah  :-H

Great rebuses Jack and John  :) - I've got them both now!  Might have been the cheese and coleslaw sarnie I had for lunch - recharged my little grey cell :laugh:

Can I suggest that a way of doing a word count where two pictures make up the one word would be ##n or 2x#n where n is the number of letters.  This would mean that the number of # and the number of pictures would be the same.

My Rebus today is a song that was released the year the world was blessed by the arrival of a special person!.  Oh, you guessed who – me. >:D

Hi Jack

You are, of course, quite right  :)  I should have made it plain that the first and last pictures in my last rebus made up the same word.  I was being a clever dick and, in my head, a bit devious :-R
I haven't sorted John's rebus yet but I have your group so far but not the title of the song.  Not sure how busy it's going to be this morning.

I need "a cup of tea, a bex and a good lie down"  after that - google it.

I did google that and it tickled me :laugh:  We'd probably say a cuppa and an aspirin! (or just a glass of wine >:D)

I promise that my rebus today wont require any of the above ;)  It's song from the year of the Suez Crisis  :laugh:  This wasn't brought about by the arrival of a very special baby >:D

10 (#5 + #5) 5 (#2 + #3)

Please use either in picture one.  Please change the first letter of picture three and use first name of gent in picture four and just the first three letters.   A couple of homophones and please pretend it's all on one line.


Accordion to research you can slip the names of musical instruments into sentences without anyone noticing.

I love puns like that.  It gave me the inspiration for my rebus.

Hi Jack

So do I!  That was a cracking & very clever rebus ;)  It took me several attempts before I got there!

I don't think I can match it but I'll have a bash ;D  My rebus is an album from the 1980's.

#8 2 #4

Position is vital!


I went to the seaside yesterday and as I was walking along the beach I dropped my keys in the sea.  Unfortunately, one of the fish swallowed them so I dived in to get them back.
They were in the last plaice I looked!

Very jealous - bet it smells divine  :-H
Enjoy a small glass of chilled wine with it  >:D Be rude not to!  Then you wont care about the knitting or puzzle  :laugh:

They were happy days Linda :)   A very different world altogether.

I'm on my way - throw in some extra spuds :-H  Roast chicken beats bangers hands down!! 

Sounds like you need a break from knitting and puzzling although perhaps you could consider combining the two?  :laugh:  I've got a friend who can knit and watch telly at the same time!

It's trying to brighten up here but not quite managing it :(  I'm going to rug up and head out for a walk.

Can you imagine a real bunny wearing a scarf, Pen?!  They are for my niece's daughters' toy rabbits who are feeling the cold this winter! 

I can sew on a button but that's as far as my sewing skills go.  Absolutely hate sewing.  Hated it at school and still hate it.  Sewing lesson was on a par with a maths lesson for me.

Denmark is not a million miles away from Sweden but not where I thought it was - perhaps they've moved it!  >:D

I'm beginning to think we were definitely separated at birth Linda :laugh:  It's really scary how alike we are!  I too hated sewing at school and loathed maths with a passion.  I could probably throw chemistry and physics into the pot as well!  We had a chemistry teacher who used to lob the blackboard cleaner at random boys at the back of the class who weren't paying attention!  Can you imagine what would happen if a teacher did that nowadays?

I think they've definitely moved Denmark.  They probably just forgot to tell us  :laugh: :laugh:

In need of a warming cuppa.  Knitting indoors is definitely preferable to walking out in the cold brrr!

Pizza for tea as I'm feeling very lazy.  If you tell me you're having roast chicken I'm going to hot foot it to Milton Keynes station and get on a train and come knocking on your door >:D

I've done a fair bit of jigsaw now so if you need to know where any country in the world is (as long as it's not Tuvalu as I haven't located it yet but think it might be somewhere remote off Australia maybe?) I'm your woman!  Not really, because I was convinced Denmark was somewhere up near Sweden (my husband shakes his head in despair - frequently!)  The scarves are a welcome (?) distraction and don't take much puzzling out and I've even managed to put tassels on them.  I sound like a 'crafter' but believe me I'm not.  Don't know one end of a 'sewing stick' from another but can knit to a basic degree.

Ham and tomato and you know what sarnie for lunch today.   >:D

Pleased to hear you're making headway with the jigsaw and I look forward to learning the whereabouts of Tuvalu very soon :laugh:  I didn't think Denmark and Sweden were a million miles apart!  Isn't there a bridge that links the two countries?  I've probably made that up :-R  I'll consult Ms Google later.

I'm useless at knitting and sewing.  I could probably manage a rabbit scarf at a push as I can do simple plain and purl though not so hot at casting on and off.  I can sew a button on but that's about it I'm afraid.

Are these scarves for real bunnies or stuffed toys?

Off out for a walk.  It's very dull and cold here today.  I've love to know the difference between cloudy and overcast.  According to the Met Office it's overcast today and cloudy tomorrow  ???

Your hat is safe, Pen!!  Well done!  I must admit I am very fond of Phil Collins even though a lot of people aren't for some reason.

You're not wrong!  Can't understand why anyone sane person would do dry January ....  >:D

Must get on with knitting scarves for rabbits - don't ask!!

Well Linda it wont surprise you to know that I too am very fond of Phil Collins - we obviously have great taste  :)

No I don't get dry January at all either - you need all the help you can get at this time of year.

I'm tempted to ask if the rabbit scarves are a distraction from the jigsaw puzzle  >:D

I've got an egg and tomato sarnie with my name on it  :-H

Was it a special occasion or just a random indulgence?

I am doing some yard cleaning so I called a firm to ask if I could have a skip on the front lawn.  They said, "Go for it, fatty, you could do with the exercise"

You wouldn't have had the answer to today's rebus personally but others who have, quite often see a doctor about it .

Hi Jack

Zoe and I don't buy each other Christmas presents so the massage was our gift to ourselves.  We either do that or buy theatre tickets.  We've seen Hairspray and The Miserables in previous years.  It just happened that it was Eve's birthday yesterday so we combined it all into one smashing day :)

I roared with laughter at your skip joke this morning :laugh:

I enjoyed your rebus - not like the poor buggers who have to deal with it.

My rebus is another old TV gem.  Not as old as Bonanza!  It shouldn't give you a headache.
3 8 (#4 + #4) #5


How is the rather compact place in picture one known?  Please use surname of either in picture two and you need present tense in the last picture and swap two letters round.

People are often surprised when they see the intricate tattoo I had done whilst visiting Barcelona...
Nobody expects the Spanish ink precision!
