I’ve spent over six hours in the last two days wielding a high-pressure water cleaner on our patio.  It seems such easy work when you start but I’ve finished each day completely knackered.

Blue ordered a Full Queenslander and refused to pay the bill when they delivered this

15 minutes to go & counting!!  It's hard word cleaning the patio with a pressure washer & you tend to get filthy into the bargain :(  You have my every sympathy :)

I cannot work out what's missing from Blue's brekkie but it's made me very hungry :-H

Hi Gareth,

When I first saw the meme I couldn't answer the question.  I didn't think of eating utensils either.  So I decided to give it a Queensland urban myth -  that real men in the outback don't consider a breakfast complete without steak.

At a motel in Blackall, the home of the black stump, in the early 90's I ordered steak and eggs for breakfast.  I was expecting the usual minute steak that most motels dish up.  Instead, I got a huge T-bone beautifully cooked.  The motel owner apologised for the fact the steak was a bit tough (I hadn't noticed) because they had 7 years of drought and it would be much better in good seasons.

I have had to moderate my diet since the 90's but I am envious of those that can eat a big breakfast.

Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

Have a bit of a headache today & it's quite stuffy here on Fracture clinic :(  Just a flying visit from me today.

Another simple rebus.  It's a children's book written in the early 1960's.

Hi Pen,
I know what you mean.  As soon as I finished each day it was clothes into the washing machine and me into the shower.

Blue told me his wind turbine wasn’t working.  It must be a no-wind situation.  I told him I wasn’t a fan of his pun.

This guy taught Blue all of his tricks.  Blue wants to know will you play poker with him?

As Blue was getting into bed, she said, “you’re drunk”
Blue said, “How do you know”
She said, “You live next door”.

       

My simple rebus is a bit smelly on a hot day– a nineteenth-century novel set in Australia.

Hi Again Jack

Hope you've nearly finished cleaning the patio.  You'll be celebrating when it's all done - with a glass or 2 of something >:D

Please tell Blue I definitely wouldn't play poker with that guy but I loved his tricks  :laugh:  Funny & clever!

I haven't sorted your rebus.  I'll go back to it in the morning with a fresh pair of eyes.

I'm going to give the little grey cell a small work out then slump in my comfy chair in front of the box.  Very knacked :-Y

SPOILER ALERT – Pen’s Rebus

SPOILER ALERT - My Rebus

Mine is a repeat of the one I presented on 14 June last year with slightly different pictures.  I hoped you'd forgotten it and Mike was too busy to remember he cracked it.
Cheers, Jack

Hi Pen,

I finished cleaning the patio on Tuesday but yesterday was also a busy day putting the furniture back, doing the shopping and visiting the Coorparoo mob.  It was the third night in a row I crashed into bed exhausted.  Tonight is dog training, so looks like a repeat performance.  I am looking forward to a quiet Thursday.

Blue is a perfectionist.  He walked into a bar. Apparently, it wasn't set high enough.

He tells me he used to just crastinate but he got so good at it that he turned pro.

When Blue told me the Prime Minister of Canada just got re-elected I thought he was making it up. It’s Trudeau.

   

My dead simple rebus is the title of a short-lived television series, made by the BBC, and broadcast over 13 weeks in 1980.

Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

Glad you got the patio done :)  I'm having a busy day today & like you am hoping for a quieter day tomorrow.  I think it's going to be roll on Friday :laugh:

I got your rebus.  My is also a simple rebus.  It's a TV series from the 1970's - also shown on the BBC.

Hi Pen,
Bonnie was great at training last night.  I wish I could say the same but it was good to get home to a casserole and a bottle of red and I slept like a log.  Blue said that was appropriate.

Blue tried his hand in the window replacement business.  He claimed he specialises in pane management.  I said that was appropriate because he is a pain in the glass.

I asked Blue why he doesn’t play tennis.  He said, “Tennis players will never find true happiness because love means nothing to them”.


   

My rebus is a 1940s American western film starring a Tasmanian swashbuckler and a future US president. The film is critical of the abolitionist John Brown and his controversial campaign against slavery before the American Civil War. J.E.B. Stuart and George Armstrong Custer—who are depicted as friends from the same West Point graduating class—are featured in a subplot.

Hi Jack

Pleased that Bonnie was on her best behavior :)  I love the sound of the casserole & a bottle of red - even at this time of the morning >:D  I've got a ping curry when I finally get home this evening.

My rebus is a film from the late 50's & stars an actor who was in your film.  It was a B movie which barely scraped one & a half stars!

Please run the first 2 pictures into one another.  You're not interested in the people in the last picture.

         

Zen...or not
1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me alone.
2 The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt or a punctured tyre.
3. It's always darkest before dawn, so if you're going to steal your neighbour's milk, that's the time to do it.
4. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
5. Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.
6. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
7. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of mortgage payments.
8. Before you criticise someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticise them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
9. If at first you don't succeed...Skydiving is not for you.
10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

Leave you with some silly stuff ;D  It's getting very busy & noisy - can't hear myself think!
