Apart from Bonnie being impatient & cheesed off what would have happened if you'd slept a little longer?

Hi Pen,

When she was younger, Bonnie had a problem with overnight bladder control.  She is much better now but I think it is best if I take her outside soon after first light.  We don't let her have access to the outside areas at night because of the prevalence of cane toads.  Also we have been taking her to a dog park in the mornings to improve her socialisation with all sorts of dogs.  There is a group of nice people and dogs who go there each weekday morning.  Unfortunately, they work and so disappear about 7:15.  So we try to get underway by 6:30.

We are off to Coorparoo this afternoon to join in a little family celebration and are going to sleepover so we can have a Mother's Day breakfast there.  So I probably be AWOL until late tomorrow.

It is probably time to do an Australian rebus.  The answer is described as the ultimate holiday adventure for the entire family and {the area’s} most popular tourist destination.

Hi Jack

My neighbours have a rescue dog called Lucki.  He's a proper character :laugh:  When they get chance they go to "doggie day club" in one of local parks at 3.30 & meet a group of nice people with their dogs.

I very much enjoyed your clever rebus.   I almost got there but your gent in the first picture got me!!  I solved it with a little help from Ms Google :)  Very well done for solving Mike's tough rebus.  I was stumped after the first word & I even got that wrong to start with :-R

I'll leave you a simple little rebus.  It's a place in Cornwall.

I think you can guess what the weather is like here today ;D

I love Cornish pasties Linda - especially in Cornwall :) Very yummy :-H  You're right it's a lovely part of the world.  Ray & I used to stay in a tiny village called Seaton, very near Looe & we visited lots of places.  There's so much to see.  Happy & poignant memories for me.

Hi Pen,

We had an enjoyable celebration of one of the boy’s birthdays yesterday and it may have been fortunate that I didn’t have to drive home.  We had a traditional barbecue breakfast this morning to mark Mothers’ Day rounded off with a much-needed poppy nap when we got home this afternoon.

This one was e-mailed to me by a friend.

Paying a tribute to our non-furry mums

I am sticking with an Australian concept today and it is a term steeped in outback rural history.

Hi Jack

It sounds like you had a smashing time :)  I do hope the barbecue breakfast included some bangers >:D  A great picture of Bonnie & Dusty - he's a bit bigger now by the looks of things!  Unless it was the angle it was taken from.

I'm hopeful that I've solved your rebus but I'll keep my powder dry until you put up a spoiler.

My rebus is an idiom which dates back to the 1950's as far as I can work out.

THE

Please change the first letter of the third picture.  The fourth picture the word is in the past tense.

         

I'll leave you with a small random assortment.  I'm trying to decide whether to mow the lawn or read my book.  I'm sure the grass is far too wet after all that rain yesterday >:D

Pen

It would help to know how many letters were in each word.

So very sorry Mike what a numpty :-R

#3 #4 #5 #5 #6 #5

If it's any consolation I think you'll find it very easy.
Don't tell Jack & perhaps he wont notice!!

I'm going to find a large hole & climb into it :-[

I know the idiom, but the 2nd & 3rd pictures have me puzzled, as they don’t appear to fit?

Sorry Tony it seemed like a good idea at the time! The second picture is from a film of that name & you need to change the first letter of the third picture. He's meant to be wincing😄 Not my finest hour!

A UK TV detective series and the name of its main character. (First two pictures) The first name of the lady in picture one is what you need.

By adding 'the' and 'of' in the appropriate places, you will also get the title of the first ('pilot') episode of the series.

So, altogether six words; 6/6 (first part) and 3/6/2/5 for the second part.

A nice easy one for me for a change Mike!  I've read all the books & then watched the TV series.  The books are small but highly entertaining.  She's a proper character :laugh:

 It has probably spoilt the rebus but after the last rebus, you deserve an easy one.[/url]


Hi Jack

You don't have to rub it in :laugh:  I feel terrible & a proper idiot :(  I don't even have the excuse of being busy at work!

I've had a very busy morning & have decamped to fracture clinic for the afternoon.  It's a paediatric clinic so I don't expect it'll be very quiet & peaceful ;D

Loved your rebus - especially the clip :laugh:  My genuinely easy rebus today is a film from 1978.

9 (#4 + #5) #4



I've checked, checked & checked again so hopefully I've redeemed myself!

         

I'm going to do an impression of a highly efficient receptionist >:D
