Hi Jack

A great picture of Bonnie & Dusty :)   I can't believe they're 10 months old already - where does the time go?!

Your cartoons tickled me but I'll enjoy the broccoli later when I can switch the sound on.  I think I'm now fully au fait with the history of the loo :laugh:


I visited the subject of your rebus a few years ago when Eve & I went to Lake Garda on holiday :)

I'm sticking with Italy for my rebus but I've moved further south to Rome.

#2 #5'1 8(#5 + #1 + #2)

'S
Surname of lady in first picture.  Please lose the last letter of the last picture.

Fracture clinic's getting busy & noisy & I can't here myself think!  Could do with some ear plugs!

You might need some wiki /google type assistance for this:

The alternate title to one of the best known and best-loved Victorian novels in Eng.Lit

Four words including an initial definite article which is not pictured. 3/6/4/8
You also need to insert an apostrophe in the appropriate place.

Hi Jack

Mike's got me well & truly stumped >:D  I'm going to leave it for now & return to it a bit later.  It's busy & noisy (again) this morning so I'm hoping it'll be a bit more peaceful this afternoon.  I'm so glad

I'm back Jack

Just had an idea for a rebus.  Don't know if it'll work but I'll give it a whirl!  I think it's a film but it just sums up how I feel this morning :laugh:
#4 #3 #5 #1 #4 #2 #3 #3

THETO
Please change the first letter of the 4th picture.  The fifth picture represents the last two words.

Only an hour & a half til lunchtime...

  I think it's a film.....

Basically, it was a stage musical, which was very successful in its day.
They did make a film of it but that was a flop.

SPOILER ALERT - Pen's rebus

Hi Pen,

I hope you are feeling better now that you are away from work.

I had the best night's sleep I have had for yonks.  I nearly slept through the alarm.
Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

I am feeling much better now I'm away from work thanks :)  I'm doing the Friday shuffle at the moment but building myself up to the Friday dance a bit later :laugh:

Pleased you had a good night's sleep :)  Apart from Bonnie being impatient & cheesed off what would have happened if you'd slept a little longer?  Although I do sometimes think that if you sleep too long you feel a bit sluggish :(

I've solved three-quarters of your rebus & think I have the answer :)

My rebus is an English stately home.
6 (#2 + 4) #5


Picture one is a homophone.  In the third picture you're not interested in the group!

        

I'm going to have my lunch & then off to B's for a walk :)

A term that has been around since the mid-1930's which describes the attitude and behaviour of some members of society to others:

Two words - 4/10

Picture 4: you are looking for one of this lady's most famous roles.

Hi Mike,

I have an answer.  If I am right, I would have put the word count as
#4 10(#4  #5  #1)

If Not,  I have no idea.

SPOILER ALERT - My guess at Mike's rebus

Well done!

The second possibility never suggested itself until you mentioned it.

The idea was suggested by some lines in an episode of Ben Elton's excellent Elizabethan sitcom 'Upstart Crow' (Series II, episode 5 - 'Beware My Sting', if you are interested).
