Hi Jack

A very busy Monday here.  This morning's gone in a flash & this afternoon is shaping up to do the same. 

         

My post is like me short & sweet >:D  If it gets quieter later I'll return with a rebus.  I'd better get

Hi Jack

A much calmer & quieter day today thankfully. 

Is Bonnie back home now? :)

I have a rebus today which is a short film - a prequel to a series of films which are very popular.
#5 #2 #3 #4: 9 (#3 + #6)

OF:

       

The CEO of IKEA was just elected president in Sweden.
He should have his cabinet together by the end of the week.

My neighbour came home from work & said to his wife "are we having salad for dinner?"
"Yes we are" she replied "How on earth did you know?"
"Because I can't hear the smoke alarm!"

Nearly lunchtime :-H

Pen, have you noticed that the New tabs are now a lovely shade of red?  Thanks, Alan, much appreciated and a vast improvement!  >:D

Hi Linda

When I signed in this morning I thought the tabs looked a lovely red colour :)  I've moved to a different reception desk this afternoon & the tabs look darker & more like their old colour.  I feel like I'm either going mad or need my eyes testing!! Perhaps I need a lie down in a darkened room :laugh:

The "new" signs did change to red, but they'll probably be changing back for a while. Try not to look at them for the next few days, if you think it will upset you.

I thought I'd try to deal with both of the issues raised in that thread, the other one being the difficulties people were having on touch screens, but that part of the update was causing some other problems. (If you tried to play a word by double-clicking on the last letter, and the word was rejected, the letters would all fly back right away, rather than staying up on the rack. Ironically this bug only happened with a mouse, not on a touch screen.) So I've reverted temporarily to the previous version for the time being.

Thanks Alan at least I know I haven't lost the plot! 
We'll tell Linda to look the other way for a few days >:D

Hi Pen,

We picked up Bonnie 10 am Monday.

I got your excellent rebus.  Spoiler and other things later today.  I had these prepared yesterday

   

   
Cheers, Jack

You are looking for the name of a character in a 1933 movie.
The part was played by one of the funniest men who ever lived.

SPOILER ALERT Pen’s Rebus

SPOILER ALERT  Mike’s Rebus.

I struggled with Mike’s rebus for about half an hour and got nowhere.  As I have been busy, I asked June if she could have a go at it and I believe she has come up with the goods.


Hi Pen,

The last two days I have been working like a beaver, mowing lawns and cleaning up the pool area.  After the recent rains, there has been a surplus of Palm debris.  If they continue to make this much work they may not survive another summer.

June and I don’t have all that many shows that we both like, so we have also been trying to fit in an episode of Brokenwood Mysteries each Day.  In series 3, they have finally come up with subtitles.

I realise Blue hasn’t been pulling his weight lately so yesterday I spent over an hour and I could only come up with 5 worth using.  I did the usual search and found we had used all of them.  The best was the one about the broken egg timer from May last year.

Last night we got a phone call from the daughter of one of our Brighton Lakes friends to say her 90-year-old father was visiting her in North Brisbane and would like to catch up with us.  So we are having lunch with him tomorrow.  We were assured that the restaurant is dog-friendly but we are not confident that Bonnie is restaurant-friendly, so she will spend the day at Coorparoo.

I will try to knuckle down and work out a rebus on Friday.  I hope you and Mike can keep up the good work and what about Les coming out of rebus retirement. :D

Tonight is Dog Training night to replace the last one which was 4 weeks ago.  Each Wednesday night since then has been rained out. 

   
Cheers, Jack

Morning Jack

Just gearing myself up for a busy morning on fracture clinic.

Sounds like your palms are for the chop!  Apart from looking good do they serve any useful purpose?  Shade perhaps?

I've solved three-quarters of Mike's rebus & will pay a return visit to it later.

My rebus is a 17th century work of art that hangs in the National Gallery.

#3 7 (#4 + #3) 9 (#4 + #5)

Please remove the first letter of the last picture.

      

Hope the dog training went well without incident!

Enjoy lunch with your old Brighton Lakes friend tomorrow :)
