Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 10-6-2016

Right … 

It’s Friday: and also payday.

Which means, as I’m back at work, today, that getting into town, paying my bills, and then doing some shopping?

Is going to involve a lot of walking around!

No problem, there, I think: I could do with losing a bit of weight.

Even so?

I’ll probably appreciate the sleep, tonight.


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: scoring four out of five in the process.

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

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

Prince Phillip, born 10th June, 1921.
And this tune … 

Have a good day …
