Hi Pen,

Let’s start with a little naff humour to get you in the mood for a rebus.

Quote from: Michael Pascoe on Twitter
Bedtime story: PM flies into a remote little country town on his way to another RM Williams shoot. He asks the locals if there's anything he could for them. "Well yes," says the mayor. "We have two problems. First, we have a hospital but no doctor." "Right," says the PM, whips out his phone, talks for a couple of minutes, and says: "Fixed it. A doctor will be here on Monday. What's your second problem?" "We have no mobile phone connection.".

Don't let them take your temperature on your forehead as you enter the supermarket because it erases your memory.  I went for macaroni and cheese and came home with two cases of beer.

Today I saw a dwarf climbing down a prison wall.  I thought to myself: "That's a little condescending".

I got myself a seniors' GPS. Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination, it tells me why I wanted to go there.

AA Meeting

Meaning of Testiculate

This is a rebus about a Rebus.  You are looking for a title of a book from the last decade of the last century.

#4  3  #4
 
 

In the first picture, you are not at all interested in the person.  In the second, you have no interest in who he is.



Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack. I have found that I've used the air-conditioning more this year than previously....can't just blame the Tassie visitors! This summer seems to be getting to me...I've had enough now.  Thunder is rumbling madly tonight...and it's really humid. Hopefully we'll get some rain and that will cool things down a bit. However, I fear it will bring higher humidity tomorrow...

Jack,

The full description of “Testiculate”, is:

To wave one’s arms about whilst talking bollocks.
This is something the UK PM is famous for.

Hi Jack


I'm here on Fracture Clinic trying to raise a little enthusiasm.  Loved your post - really tickled me & perked up my Monday morning :laugh:  I think I've solved your rebus but I'm keeping my powder dry for the moment. I think I got the right title but the wrong author!

My rebus is a book published in 2001 by the author who I thought wrote your rebus but didn't!  Confused?  You will be >:D
#4 #5 #4


Pictures 3 & 4 both relate to the third word.

I found this silly joke by accident but it tickled me & I didn't change the location!

A businessman rushes into the train station just in time to catch the Brisbane to Rockhampton express.
On taking his seat he asked the conductor what time the train reached Gladstone.
"There's no stop in Gladstone on Wednesdays" the conductor told him.
"What?!" exclaimed the business man.
"No stop in Gladstone on Wednesdays" the conductor repeats.
"But it's imperative - I have a very important meeting there"
The conductor is adamant "This is a weekly express service & there's no stop in Gladstone on Wednesdays.
After much argument a compromise was finally reached.  The conductor agreed to ask the driver to slow the train down to 60 kilometres per hour as the train went through Gladstone.  He would hold the businessman out of the window, who would then get his legs running as fast as he could in thin air & the conductor would lower him down onto the platform.
So when the train reached Gladstone the plan was put into action & the businessman hit the platform running at full speed.  He ran the full length of the platform hoping he could stop before he reached the end.
Just as the last carriage of the train was passing him by his collar was grabbed by the strong arm of a shearer who hauled him back on board through an open window.
"Welcome aboard mate!" said the shearer.  "Lucky I grabbed you - there's no stop in Gladstone on Wednesdays!"

Hi Pen,

The structure which is the subject of my rebus today may not in fact have existed but there have been references to it for over a thousand years.

3  #3  2  3  #6 #4, 9(#2  #2  #5)

   

Two instances of “the” and one of “of” have not been shown in the pictures.
4th Picture – only the first two letters.
6th Picture. Place name associated with the picture.





Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

My compliments on a very sneaky puzzle :laugh:  I sailed through the first bit & was feeling very smug & then pride came before a fall!  I got there in the end but my poor little grey cell needs a rest now :laugh:

I'm a little short of bright ideas today!  This is a place I've visited while motorbiking with my cousin!

10 (#5 + #5) 5

2nd picture last five letters.

Lunchtime now thank goodness :-H  Cheese & Marmite sarnies :)  I'll be in 2 instalments today...

I'm back Jack!

We're having an interesting day here today.  We are having major building works at the hospital.  Some clever beggar has drilled through a mains water pipe :o  This was about four hours ago & it's still not been sorted.  There are about 6 water board vans outside.  There is now no water in certain areas & some loos are now no longer working.  A message came out at 12 saying if you are able to work from home then please bugger off & do so!! Sadly I can't run my reception desk from the comfort of my living room :laugh:

Your cartoons with the naughty ladies really tickled me ;)

            

Leave you with a really silly joke ;D
Whilst out hiking, a guy finds a rare but long and poisonous centipede.
The guy is amazed by what he’s found and naturally he wants to show this rare creature to his drinking buddies. So he captures the centipede and places it carefully in a ventilated box.
Once he gets it home, the guy decides he wants to take the centipede to his local pub immediately. So he taps on the box and says, “Would you like to go to The White Swan with me and have a beer?“
The guy waits a few moments and then says, “What do you think? Would you like to go to my local and meet my mates?“
Again, there’s no answer.
Thinking the centipede can’t hear him, the man goes right up to the box this time and he yells, “Hey! Would you like to go to The White Swan and have a drink with me?“
A little voice comes out of the box, “I heard you the first time! I’m still putting my shoes on.“

Only an hour & it's home time

Hi Pen,

Just woke up.

SPOILER ALERT - My rebus

SPOILER Alert - Pen's rebus

Must rush.  I'll explain later.
Cheers, Jack

Hi Pen,

At about the same time you were having your crisis, we were having our own mini-crisis. 

I may have told you before that I have to take a raft of pills - so many, I wonder why I don't 't rattle when I walk.  Each Monday I put them in a dispenser for the coming week. Last night (Tuesday) after we had said goodnight to Bonnie, I was putting them away and in a display of outstanding clumsiness dropped them on the floor and the dispenser flew open and the tablets scattered everywhere.  When I put the tablets back three were missing – small ones about the same colour as our floor tiles.  So this yesterday morning was a hunt to find them before Bonnie did.  Hence, the rushed post. Luckily we managed to find them first.

Tonight (now last night) was Bonnie’s training night and we didn’t get home until after 8.  After a quick meal with a nice bottle of red, I thought I would just pop this post off before I went to sleep.  That was over 3 hours ago and I just woke up.  So, I am going to try to get some more sleep and start again later in the morning.

Good night, Pen.

Hi Jack

That sounds a nightmare.  I just thank heavens you found the pills before Bonnie did.  Must have been a huge relief.

I'm a lady of leisure now until next Monday :)  Still using up my millions of remaining holiday days!  I got a bit of grocery shopping this morning & came back & did a bit of cleaning & had some lunch.  A not very exciting tuna sarnie which had a distinct whiff of cat food ???
Just as I was going out walking it decided to rain so I waited for it to stop & have just been out.  It's quite nice here but a rather stiff breeze.

           

I'll be back tomorrow (today!) with a rebus.
Here's hoping you have a less frantic day today :)

Hi Paula and other puppy lovers,

Bonnie’s half-siblings are approaching 9 weeks old, so I expect they will be going to their new owners this weekend or next.  Here a several photos of the cuties that were on facebook this week

   
 
Cheers, Jack

Their happy spirits are so infectious.

(Too often my pills have skittered onto the floor and once one of the animals actually ate one.  But when their own meds are carefully buried in an irresistible treat....well, you know how that works)

As always, thanks for the smiles

Hi Pen,

It’s been a while since we had some videos.  While you are enjoying a long weekend would be a good time to revive the practice.

Hi Jack

Smashing pictures - they just make you smile :)  Did you throw the ginger pussy cat in for my benefit? >:D

I've got what I hope is a fairly simple little rebus.  It's a film released in 1961.
9 (#5 +#4) #2 #7'1

'S

      

Leave you with a couple of Dad jokes ;D

If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it FedUPs?

I just fell over on the pavement outside my house...
I left a review on trip advisor!

I started my post well over an hour ago & keep getting distracted & interrupted.  I noticed you've posted in the meantime but I'll press on & finish now I've got this far!

Good idea about the videos :)  I'll apply myself to it tomorrow.
