The Daily Teaser — 5-10-2015: The Name’s Bond … 

Right … 

Did you see where I put my iron … ?

More to the point, did you see where I put my posh trousers?

I think I’m going to need both, frankly … !

“OK,” I hear you ask.

“Why DOES Paul want me to find his trousers?”

Well … 

I’ve got an interview, today: at my local post office.

Which, of course means, I’ll be needing my posh shoes and trousers.   And need an iron, so I can iron a shirt.

Oh … 

And will possibly need to print out a copy of my CV and references.   I just hope the printers at the library are working, today.

I think I’m going to need them … 


But let’s get a move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw both Olga* and Debbi† putting in their answers: with both scoring five out of five.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video …

And this tune … 

Enjoy your day … 

*        My pleasure, Olga!   (The same basics — trade-in and business discount/financing — apply to their laptops: JUST so you know.)   And, yes … I think we can say I thoroughly enjoyed Dr Who … !

†      Really, Debbi … ?   That’s sort of a shame: still, hopefully, it’ll drive prices up, and hand you a huge pile of free, good publicity.   Either way … ?   Means I’ll be looking at some of the odder sellers on Amazon.   No change, THERE, then … !   (A badonkadonk … ?   OKAAAAAAAY … )
