Another of my absolute favourite sarnies!!  I'd forgotten about corned beef and will hasten out to buy some today.  Always with tomato and English mustard, occasionally with Branston pickle.  Is it time for lunch yet?!  >:D

Hi Jack

I was trying to be helpful but you missed my extra sneaky clue >:D

Loved your cartoons & jokes - especially the Zoe one :laugh:

Your puzzle had me a bit perplexed for a while & it took me a second visit before I cracked it.  I had heard of this lady but I had no idea she'd written a fair few books.
Is it possible she might be in charge of these 2...

The heroine of the novel is Liz Carlyle.

My puzzle is a book by a former MP.  4 words. #2 #4 #3 #4
the

For your bonus please say who wrote the book & who is the main character.

     

Nearly lunchtime Linda.  Corned beef with pickle is also very yum!

Hi Pen,

I was a bit thick yesterday. I missed all type of clues.  This post may not get to you before you retire for the night but I will keep it short in case.

Great cartoons on subject. You nailed my puzzle.

I got yours first go. I must be more on the ball today.

The author was the same guy that wrote .  Is the main character the PM or the man who wears the crown?

I've got some news which I should get around to this afternoon.
Cheers, Jack

I've just noticed my last puzzle had a problem of not showing the last picture on iPhones and iPads.

Here is a substitute

Hi Pen,

A quick special for Radiology Technology week.  I know it's not now but I just found these cartoons.  for the record:

The American Society of Radiologic Technologists founded National Radiologic Technology Week in 1979. When it first began, the week was held July 22-29. The date was later changed to commemorate the invention of the x-ray, which occurred on November 8th, 1895. The annual celebration takes place each year during the week that includes November 8th.

   

   

A lesson in being positive to end with

Hi Pen,

I have now watched the two series we talked about recently.

Porterhouse Blue

The YouTube quality was quite adequate.  I agree that its objective is satirical and it does that quite well. I appreciated bits of it rather than enjoyed it.  Part of my problem might have been that if they had not been such nasty people, I would have been on the side of the new Master and his wife.  I fully supported the changes they were trying to introduce.  But then perhaps I donít have the understanding of what it is to be an English Gentleman.

Blot on the Landscape

I quite enjoyed this one. The copy I got was just by googling the title and finding a site dailymotion.com which has all six episodes.  The picture quality was very good.  A lot of the action was over the top but when it came to the end of each episode, I was looking forward to the next.  I wouldnít say it was one of my favourite series but definitely worth a watch.



Last night we had one of our worst storms for some time.  Driving wind, hailstones mixed in with snow and two inches of rain.  I think we missed the worst because we didnít find any damage whereas there were reports of widespread damage reports from elsewhere, mainly to roofs.  The ice from the hail was still on the ground in shaded areas after midday today Ė some 18 hours later.

We also got a phone call to say our photos had been published and that we are to have an open house at 1.30 pm on Saturday (tomorrow).  So, at last, we are underway.

This is the lounge/dining area after their styling


 

Back when clubs and pubs were allowed to open, Blue was having a couple of beers with Sergeant Bookham (Sarg) in the Bowral Golf Club.  Sarg told him that earlier in the week two prostitutes were riding around town with a sign on top of their car which said: "Two Prostitutes -- $250.00." Sarg, seeing the sign, stopped them and told them they'd either have to remove the sign or he would take them down to the police station and charge them.

Just at that time, another car passed with a sign saying: "JESUS SAVES." One of the women asked, "How come you don't stop them?!" "Well, that's a little different," Sarg smiled. "Their sign pertains to religion." So the two ladies of the night frowned as they took their sign down and drove off.

The following day Sarg noticed the two ladies driving around with a large sign on their car again. Figuring he had an easy arrest, he had just pulled them over when he noticed the new sign which now read: "Two Fallen Angels Seeking Peter -- $250.00."

He told Blue all he could do was laugh and let them go on their way.



Thatís me done for the moment.  Iíll try to get back with a puzzle after I have had some liquid sustenance

Hi Pen,

Like you on another occasion, I had a vague recollection that I may have used this one, but no matter how hard I search I cannot find it - so here goes.

It is the title of a memoir written by a man who for some years was in the same organisation as my previous author.

10#3&7



Hint: you only need the first 3 letters of the first picture.

Bonus Question:  What connection has the book with an ex-prime Minister of Australia?
Cheers, Jack

Hi Linda

I was boiling in bed last night so I've casted my clout & put my summer duvet on this morning :o  Probably means we'll have a frost & I'll freeze my bits off :laugh:  Thankfully I still have my trusty electric blanket!
Just going to have my lunch - same as yesterday!  Corned beef & tomato :-H  Yummy!

Hi Jack.

You've been very busy with your posts while I've been toiling away at a little light housework :laugh:  I'll be back a little bit later when I've gathered my thoughts & had a social distancing walk with my friend Barbs :)

Still jealous of your corned beef and tomato!  Didn't get round to buying any yesterday.  Scrambled eggs for me today.  It is very windy here - hope the weather doesn't suddenly turn colder now you've cast your clout, Pen.  Don't say I didn't warn you!  >:D

I fear you're going to be proved right Linda!  It's howling a gale here too.  My sheets got wrapped round & round the line & half the pegs fell out!  Rescued them before they ended up in the next road :laugh:
I love scrambled eggs on toast.  Perhaps you'll have corned beef tomorrow :)
