Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 23-7-2016

Good lord … 

What HAS happened to München?

I got home, last night, to the news that a lone gunman … was active in the German city of Munich.


The last place I’d’ve expected to hear about a wandering gunman!

Quite what was going on, there?

I really couldn’t tell you.

My sympathies are going to the families of those killed.

My thoughts … ?

Are wondering about the man’s motives … 

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?

Michael Foot, 23 July 1913 – 3 March 2010.
And this tune … 

Have a nice day … 

*        No, why am I not surprised you’d notice THAT on, Debbi … ?   :D   At ANY rate?   I know there’s a few Audio Books audio books on iTunes.   As well as what LOOKS like a Dalek voice changer app for iOS.   (Jude think’s they’re too scary … )
