Which reminds me of the old Benny Hill routine.

A man walks into a bar and sees a much younger man sitting there. He sits down and overhears the young man chanting happily under his breath as he nurses a pint.

"Twenty one today, twenty one today..." he giggles.

"Really?" asks the older man, "May I buy you a pint?"

"Of course" says the younger man.

The older man pays and wanders off to talk to the other patrons.

Slyly the young man begins to chant, "twenty two today, twenty two today..."

Peg,

I am confused. 16 + 16 + 9 = 41. What am I not seeing?

Posted on the pavvy as well...

I've been absent from here and the forae for the last few months. Nothing personal, no enforced hiatus, just got busy with life and other stuff and looked up and 4 months has done come and gone. I have no hope of ever fully catching up with the backlog, but in lieu of specifics I offer congratulations and condolences as appropriate for all I've missed. Hope all are as well as can be in your personal circumstances.

What, me? Oh, I'm good. Generally healthy though the tennis elbow comes and goes, I've developed rotator cuff issues, and the back recently had it's biannual excercise in strain pain. Warranty has officially run out. :-P Work is good; in our ever re-organizing business I'm in a team & role that removes at lot of day-to-day crises and allows me to be the tech savvy gal 20 years of experience brings, which is a huge improvement. Big oil paid me an official "big a**" bonus (based on last year profits) and zero raise (based on this year's price) but I got zippo complaints on that. I'm looking forward to a summer of travel with Doug starting with Puerto Rico this week, West Coast (SD/Ashland) in June, NY in July, Morro Bay (I hope) in August, and Chicago for labor day.

Cheers to one and all, hopefully I'll be back to my regular lurking now.

Actually, I'd rather have you back to your regular posting, but that's just me.

So . . . that new guy you been seeing . . . what's he like?

I hear he's a hell of a nice guy. And humble, too!

His first name means "godlike." Or "black water;" I forget which.

I believe the origin is Celtic: "From the black loch".

But his friends call him "Nessie". Or "Nestle". Or something chocolaty.

Nutterbutter.


No chocolate in a Nutterbutter. Correct answers included Grasshoppers, Pinwheels, and Fudge Grahams. Go back two spaces.
