Hi Pen,

I slept like a log.  Nothing beats sleeping in your own bed although I wasn’t sure about that when I was a teenager.

I managed to solve your puzzle.

For mine, I will dive 20 years further into the past.   The answer is a light-hearted 1941 mystery film about an amateur detective investigating a murder.

9(#4  #5)  2   3  #4

the    

In the last picture, you only need one of the two words.

I will finish this post and put out a spoiler alert when we have walked the excess energy off a brown dog and caught up with a few other jobs.

Did somebody have to bath the dogs?
Zoe & I have been trying to work out how the flat white didn't soak into the donut & make it all soggy! & how on earth are you supposed to drink it?  Do they give you a soup spoon? >:D

Dusty went on to another Airbnb near a dog-friendly beach for the weekend.  If they can get him into the water that should do the trick. Bonnie is going to share a shower with me today - which won't be fun for either of us.

I understand the coffee did soak into the donut and made it soggy.  Apparently, the only way June could get any of the coffee was to tilt the cardboard container and sieve the coffee through the mush.  I sent the photo to a mate of mine and told him not to put a visit to the bakery on his Bucket List.

Blue showed me one of his job applications.  I was amused at the claim "I have sexdaily".  I can confirm he does have dyslexia.

Blue told me that Sheila said he had two big faults - "that he wouldn't listen and ---er   something else."

Blue asked me if I had any aphorisms so I gave him these
  • If I say I will do it, I will do it.  No need to remind me every six months.
  • To me, "Drink responsibly" means don't spill it
  • Never Laugh at you wife's choices.  You are one of them.
  • My body is a temple - ancient and crumbling and probably cursed or haunted.
  • Scientists say the universe is made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons.  They left out morons.
  • Some days the supply of swear words is not sufficient to meet my demands.
  • Patience is a virtue.  It's just not one of my virtues.

Love the aphorisms.
Amazingly, I can't remember ever seeing any of them on a t-shirt
 ;D

Hi Mike

The inspiration for my aphorisms was an e-mail sent to me by one of my friends.  They were in the form of T-shirts.  I am not sure if they were photographed t-shirts or photoshopped.  My favourite of the ones I didn't use was

"The best thing about the good old days was that I wasn't old and I wasn't good"

The complete collection that was sent to me
Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

I thoroughly enjoyed both parts of your post.  Made me roar with laughter :laugh:  Like Mike I love the aphorisms.  The thought of you sharing your shower with a muddy dog cracked me up!

I sorted your puzzle eventually.  I got transfixed by the chocolate >:D  I don't eat it in vast quantities & can by no means be classed as a chocoholic but it just made me really fancy some :-H

That's more my weapon of choice >:D

Zoe has come up with what I hope will be an enjoyable puzzle for you.  It's a book published in 1969.  It follows on from a rather more famous book.
#2 #1 #6 #3 #3 #9 #7

AS
Please treat the puzzle as if it was all on one line.  Can you please name the author & the book that came before.

            
It's just started snowing here - hope it doesn't settle!

If anyone wants leaflets about the treatment of haemorrhoids...
I've got piles!

People are usually shocked when they find out I'm not a good electrician!

The vicar told me the way to achieve true inner peace & happiness is to finish what I start.
So far today, I have finished a tuna baguette, two bags of crisps and a chocolate cake...
I feel better already!

Off to the kitchen to see what I can find...

SPOILER  ALERT - Puzzles

Luckily we have a two-person shower and it needed both of us.

A showered dog.

Hi Pen,


Inspiration is at a low point today.

     

My puzzle is the first line of the second verse of a poem by a Scottish poet of some repute.


#2  #4 #3  #4,  2  #6  #4

      my  

It won't help you to recognise the 3rd picture, it could be any picture of its type. 
Just now I discovered the last picture is not coming out on iPads. It is a picture of a “lass”. Sorry about that.

SPOILER ALERT - Pen's Puzzle and Mike's Answer and now the answer to my puzzle above.

Hi Jack

A quick visit as I'm a bit preoccupied.  We've had a fair bit of snow this morning & they are forecasting more for this evening & overnight :(  I've already been out & cleared my car once & am going to do it again in a little while.  I have to admit that I'm dreading what tomorrow morning will be like once it's all frozen.  It terrifies me driving on ice & snow.  I don't know whether to clear my car & leave it or cover the windscreen with an old sheet.  If it doesn't snow any more then the sheet will just freeze to the windscreen & wont be helpful.  I'll have a good dither & wish I was sitting in your garden enjoying the warmth :)

I loved the picture of the freshly showered Bonnie though I was slightly concerned that you'd accidentally brought the wrong dog home :laugh:  She looks almost black in that picture - especially when compared with the one from the other day when she was all muddy! Having said that there's no mistaking her lovely face :)
I have to say it was very clever of you to incorporate her into your puzzle :)

            

What do you call 10 Arctic Hares hopping backwards through the snow together?
A receding hare line!

What's the difference between snowmen & snowladies?
Snowballs!

What do you call a snowman with a six-pack?
An abdominal snowman!

Better be brave & get to it!  Perhaps I could ski to work tomorrow >:D

I have just seen a photo on the net of the most middle class snowman ever. He had the traditional carrot nose but with spring onions (Scallions) for arms and the best of all - star anise eyeballs! I suppose nobody has lumps of coal available nowadays.

Hi Christine,

Is this your poor little snowman?

Cheers, Jack

Hi Christine - my cousin with the motorbikes who lives in the Peak District still uses coal!  A rarity these days.  When I was a kid we had an open fire in the living room & a rayburn in the kitchen for cooking. No central heating. I remember we had an extendable toasting fork for making toast while watching telly.

Great picture of the poor middle class snowman Jack :laugh:

My spies at your weather bureau told me  "Further snow is likely this evening for a time but may turn to sleet in places. Snow will ease later, leaving most places dry and cold tonight with clearing skies. A risk of icy stretches.".  So drive very carefully on your way to work.

I liked this photo taken at Chesham at 9 am Sunday Morning. 


Bonnie's coat is chocolate Brown but poor light and inexpert photography can make it look black.
Cheers, Jack
