Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 21-6-2017

Yoicks … !

I’ve agree to going into work early today!

At the last minute!

Still, I can’t complain too much.

As I’ve ALSO bagged an extra shift on Sunday.

It all helps pay the bills!

I might even be able to afford a treat, this week!


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: scoring ten out of ten 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 …

I’ll leave you with a tune … 

And a thought …
“Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.”
Jean-Paul Sartre, 21 June 1905 – 15 April 1980.
Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s Teaser.

Have a good day: and be careful in the sunshine.

*        I’ll have a look, Debbi!   No guarantees, though!   Have you seen Snatch, as a thought?   It can be handy, if the character’s a working class, London girl.   And this site seems useful.   (Bog standard Word or Pages document should be fine!)   Oh, and have you seen The Girl With All The Gifts?   Gemma Aterton’s character might be a good model … (I’ll have to do some work, there … before I start sending things … )
