Tuna savoury for me today, Pen!  Been lazy though and bought it in a tub.  Will have to pick out a few of the red peppers now! 

Against my own advice, I cast my clout yesterday!  Thank goodness I did as it is warming up quite a bit here!  >:D

Maybe I need to try & come up with something a little bit more tricky >:D

Hi Pen,

You started it.

Even so, I am knacked so a shorty tonight.

The puzzle to start. The name of my favourite Clint Eastwood movie.

#3  #5  #3  #6  #4

     

Bonus Point:  Who Played the female lead.


There is a bit of morbid humour in this picture. 

     

I think Ive got the answer to your puzzle  but I dont want to be a smart Alec.  Id need a pint of that stout Irish drink to be sure.  If I am right you can put it in the book of records.
Cheers, Jack

Sounds very delish Linda.  I must get some tuna as I do love it.  Greggs do a tuna crunch baguette which I'm very partial to :)  I don't mind red peppers.  It's the green ones I'm not so keen on - they always seem a bit bitter.

I'm sure you wont have a problem with casting your clout :laugh:   Very hot & rather humid here today phew!

You a Smart Alec Jack? >:D  Perish the thought :laugh:
I could only find one cartoon with smart alec in it & the alec is spelt wrong but beggars can't be choosers!


Joking apart that's brilliantly answered.  Good choice of cartoons & you're right there is some morbid humour in that picture!

I'd completely forgotten about that Clint Eastwood film.  It's been yonks since I've seen it but I did love it.  I think this might be the lady who played the lead role in your film

& I believe she had a similar occupation in this film as the "nun" in the Clint Eastwood film.

Hi Jack

You've certainly come up with a very tricky puzzle today.  I'm very flummoxed :laugh:  I shall return to it a little bit later on.  If I manage to stay awake this afternoon on fracture clinic I will come back to it then.  The powers that be have decided that we can't have any fans or aircon so it's like working in a greenhouse :(

Loved the cartoons - especially the toupee one :laugh:

        

I'll leave you with a small random selection & say that you're nothing like a cloud!
A bit of a tease maybe :laugh:  I shall be wondering what you're up to tomorrow


I'll be back to have another puzzle at your puzzle :)

I was so hungry I've already eaten mine, Pen.  Egg, tomato and salad cream!  Absolutely delicious!

Start back to work for 3 days next week.  Will be entirely on my own so can eat my lunch at 10 if I want to (and I probably will)!! >:D

That's going to be a bit strange after all this time Linda.  I have visions of you scoffing your lovely sarnie at 10 & then being ravenous by lunchtime.  You'll have to send out for supplies :laugh:

Presactly!  The trouble is there is a butchers and a bread shop nearby both selling lovely pies, sausage rolls, cakes and filled sarnies so the temptation might be too much to bear come mid morning!!  >:D

I'm back Jack!  It's roasting hot here so I might be snoring in about an hour :-Y

I've had another look at your puzzle & think I've got it! I thought to start with I was wandering lonely as a cloud amongst the daffodils :laugh:
The artist is Casper David Friedrich.  A great puzzle :)  My little grey cell needs a rest now!

My puzzle is very easy by comparison.  It's also a work of art.  I saw it in the Wallace collection & was astonished that it's quite small!

For your bonus please say what is the style of the painting & who dunnit? :laugh:

I'll leave you with a couple of naff jokes!

This chap goes skydiving for the first time. After he jumps out of the plane, he counts to ten, pulls the ripcoard, and nothing happens. Only a little worried, he pulls the cord for the auxilliary parachute, but unfortunately, the chute still does not appear. As he is plummeting toward the Earth, he sees a woman coming up the other way. He shouts to her "Do you know anything about parachutes?" "No", she says, "do you know anything about gas cookers?"

What do you get if you cross a sheepdog and a bunch of daisies?
You get collie-flowers.

I expect you & the chooks are tucked up for the night by now :-Z

Hi Pen,

My Puzzle:  Brilliantly done and spot on.

Your puzzle:  It wasn't the crying Oliver Cromwell Was it?  If it was, it could have described as "one of the most brilliant of all Baroque portraits". I think it was done by Frank Hall, one of Blue's mates.

Must get back to bed or I'll never be able to cope with the big day I've got today. :D
Cheers, Jack

Stop teasing me :laugh:  Look forward to hearing about your big day later on :)

Me too, Pen.  Not as astonished as I was when I saw how titchy the Mona Lisa is!!  Fought my way through hordes of Japanese tourists taking selfies to get up close!  >:D
