Hi Pen,

This lot is a bunch of cuties

I have been distracted today watching the lead-up to the Ryder Cup on TV.  I was most impressed by the speech and demeanour of the captain of the European Team, Padraig Harrington.  A more pleasant and nice man you couldn’t imagine but if you look into his eyes there is not a hint of weakness there.  It reminded me of a saying that is my rebus tonight.

Hi Jack

They are gorgeous :)

I love the Ryder Cup but not so much when it's on the other side of the Pond because of the time difference.  I always admired Padraig Harrington when he used to play - even if I couldn't pronounce his name :laugh:

I'm going to attempt a film for my rebus.  It's from 2004.
#5 #5: #6 #2 #6

OF

You're not interested in the gent in the first picture but what he was in the TV programme.  A quite old fashioned English expression!
Last name of the actress please.  You could substitute the gent in the last picture with

That should distract you from the golf for five minutes & keep you out of mischief >:D

         

Must get the washing on the line while it's still sunny!

Cheeky.  It was a great rebus and very topical. It took me more than 5 minutes.  When I left the golf things were bad for us.  When I went back they were worse. We’ll be lucky to get out of this down 3-1..  I am recording it, so I must have the strength not to go back to watching it live and get some sleep because we are on “boy and dog” sitting duty later today (Saturday) and I won’t get the chance for a poppy nap.

When I say “we”, I am a European for the purposes of the Ryder cup.

That's me Jack :angel: I'm glad you didn't solve it too quickly & glad you enjoyed it :)

I guessed you meant Europe when you said "we" before I even got to the bottom of your post!  I assumed you'd be an honorary European during the Ryder Cup!  Especially as Australia now participate in Eurovision >:D

Hi Pen,

I hope you remember that Blue and Sheila had a holiday in the UK some years ago.  Blue was told that Australians are looked down on as ockers over there and to get respect you had put on your best pommy posh accent, pretend that you are English and you’ll get respect.  Perhaps he should have been told it doesn’t always work in Scotland.
He was a keen golfer and so got golf whenever he could get a game. He was cupping his hand to scoop water from a Highland burn on the St Andrews course when a greenkeeper shouts, 'Dinnae drink tha waater! Et's foo ae coo's shite an pish!'

Blue replied: 'My Good fellow, I'm from England. Could you repeat that for me, in English!?'

The keeper replied: 'I said, use two hands - you'll spill less that way!'


      

I couldn’t get the third one until Blue told me to google Picard’s catchphrase.

I am bit tired today so I needed a stimulating rebus.  It is a controversial novel from the early 20th Century.

#4  11(#5   #2  #3  ‘1)  5(#4  #2)

 
’s

Pictures 1,2 and 4 are two words.  Pick the word that most fits the word count.
Conceptually one line.





Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

I do remember that Blue & Sheila visited the UK.  Poor Blue always seems to be in some sort of trouble wherever in the world he is :laugh:

I had to ask Zoe what Picard's catchphrase is & then I got it too :)

I think I've solved your rebus.  I've never read it but I hope it's not too stimulating  >:D

My rebus is the film Zoe & I watched last night.  I hope I'm not repeating myself!

11 (#2 + #5 + #4)


Please remove the first letter from one of these in picture one & the first letter of the third picture.

           

Off to the kitchen to see

Howdy Jack

It's a grey day here so far but the sun is trying it's best but not quite succeeding yet!

My rebus today is an LP from the 1970's

#5 #4 #4


by
THE

         

I'm sure I've used these before but they still tickle me ;D  They are exchanges between Qantas pilots & engineers.
Pilots: Number 3 engine missing. Engineers: Engine found on right wing after brief search.
Pilots: Aircraft handles funny. Engineers: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.
Pilots: Target radar hums. Engineers: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.
Pilots: Mouse in cockpit.  Engineers: Cat installed. And perhaps, the best Qantas joke...
Qantas Pilot: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer. Engineers: Took hammer away from midget.

Nearly lunchtime :-H

Hi Pen,

Blue reads quite a lot.  Here are a couple of books I noticed in his bookcase

  • “How to Generate a Stable Income” by Horace Mannure.
  • “Wet Blankets” by I. P. Knightly
  • “Rattled Bones” by Iona Ford”.
  • ”Under the grandstand by Seymour Butz
     
     

I watched a Poirot episode this afternoon and its title was perfect for a rebus.  Cat among the Pigeons.  The only problem was when I checked you had posted it in February 2020.  So,

Something different in a rebus.  A double rebus. As a first one, I will make it super easy.

What word or phrase is represented by the following letters?:

O_ER_T_O_

The Answer is

1  8(#4  #4)  #9


A    

Picture 2. The first word of a mathematical symbol.

That's a bit tricky & very clever Jack!  I've got a solution but have no idea if it's in any way right.  I'll await your spoiler with interest :)

The Ryder Cup's looking grim - think we've had it :'(

Still your post made me chuckle & cheered me up :laugh:

Just went to put the kettle on & it suddenly fell into place!  I was almost there but not quite.  That's brilliant - I love it :)
Feeling happy & smug now :angel:

Hi Pen,

Sheila was lying in bed one night. Blue was falling asleep but Sheila was in a romantic mood and wanted to talk.

She said: "You used to hold my hand when we were courting."

Wearily he reached across, held her hand for a second and tried to get back to sleep.

A few moments later she said: "Then you used to kiss me... "

Mildly irritated, Blue reached across, gave her a peck on the cheek and settled down to sleep.

Thirty seconds later she said: "Then you used to bite my neck..."

Angrily, Blue threw back the bed clothes and got out of bed.

"Where are you going?" Sheila asked.

"To get my teeth..."


   


Nobody complained, so here is another double.

What phrase is represented by this rebus ?



#5  #2   #3   #2   7(#5  #2)

 
 

Pictures 3,4 and 6.  ditch the first letter.
Picture 5. His title.
Conceptually one line.
