Looks like I’ve just had to do some jugging: where Safari couldn’t upload the photo for today’s Teaser.
So I’ve had to use Google Chrome — for now — to upload today’s Teaser poster.
I’m hoping it goes through!
I’ve also got to admit: I recorded Back in Black, the Terry Pratchett documentary, last night.
And have to admit to having watched the first few minutes, when I got up, today.
I couldn’t watch.
I think it’s going to be a little too emotional for this time of the morning.
But let’s move on, shall we?
Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: scoring ten out of ten in the process. The day ALSO saw Olga† letting us know she’s around.
Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

“The whole growing-up process seems to have eluded me.”
Christina Ricci, born February 12, 1980.
And this song …
Have a good day … !
* Debbi, you are, as ever, always welcome!
† Mauthausen … ? Bloody hell, Olga, the Miret end of the family’s been through the wringer, hasn’t it!? I know Simon Wiesenthal was at Mauthausen. And I know what you mean about Blogger, occasionally: it does — as it did for me, this morning — play up! But WordPress does have issues: a major security flaw has recently been discovered. I hope the hibernation’s not for too long. You, as Debbi, make much valued contributions to Nik Nak’s Old Peculiar: I couldn’t do it with out you!
