Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 6-8-2017

Bleugh … !

I like my job … 


But Sundays … ?

Are a bit of a bugger!

As, in order to get in on time?

I was up at five.

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Don’t eat the yellow snow”?

Yeah … 

That’s what my eyeballs feel like … 


Let’s move on shall we?

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

Here’s a tune from someone who isn’t a Scout … 

And some poetry …
“My good blade carves the casques of men,

My tough lance thrusteth sure,

My strength is as the strength of ten,

Because my heart is pure.”
Sir Galahad, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 6 August 1809 – 6 October 1892.
Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s teaser.

Have a good day.

And feel free to sing along with Barry … 

*        Actually, they’re open Sunday, as well, Olga.   That’s why I went for them in the first place: they were the only place open when I wanted to check prices … !   At ANY rate?   I hope your friend’s stay is a good one!   (Can you mention next Sunday’s Teaser to them, please?   If possible?   It’s Left Handers Day, and I always like to spread the word … !)

†        Oh, blimey, you’re Aloon, Debbi … !   Sorry, sorry!   :D   At ANY rate … ?   Did you ever here of an English band called Prefab Sprout?   Their frontman is Paddy McAloon … !

Q1) Netherlands

Good to know. I'm with Vision Express and they do have shops in the big shopping malls but I've never realised if they are open on Sundays or bank holidays (I try to avoid shopping malls on such days).
My friends are Spanish and other than my goddaughter, they don't speak any English, but I'll try and share it around on the day (do remind me, just in case. That will be the last day to take the exam for the course I'm teaching and I suspect there could be last minute panic...)
It is a shame there were no jobs going that did not involve such long commute, but I know how things are...

Oh my! We could very well be related!

Did I ever tell you that one member of the band that did "Innagaddadavida" (sp?) is a distant cousin of mine and my siblings? Amazing! :) Iron Butterfly! That was the band!

1. the Netherlands
2. Jamaica
3. Bolivia
4. Hiroshima
5. The Ramones (great band!)
