Curses, upstaged again!!!

However, you were a little slow in your response. Kindly be more prompt in the future.



Prompt? You do mean prop, don't you, as in stage prop?

Hmm. For some reason, this all somehow reminds me of the shy stripper who couldn't bare it on stage.

Put simply

I was going back to the old days before idiot boards

I engaged her for the show, they told me she was a Pole Dancer, turned out she was a ballerina from Poland!

From Poland? So am I.

And ballerinas are really kept on their toes, so I don't see the problem!

So you like ballet also also(too too)!

I am not overly keen on the Nutcracker. But to get back to the ballet.....

I can't. I have a high glycemic index, and my doctor told me to cut back on the Suites.

National Columnists Day: Today, June 28
http://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/columnists-day/

Newspapers are a huge part of our society and daily life; Columnists Day celebrates the work of the people who research, write and produce our newspapers.

I hope Don or someone reports how the day went or at least keeps a journal of what went on.

But I'm sure Don has more pressing needs to attend to.

No need to edit this post, it was spell-checked and proofed.

There will be prizes for the top 4 columnists. No prizes for any fifth column.

During the day there will be an organised 'Spot the Origami Rodent' game which has been aptly entitled 'Paper Rat See'. Winners will get a giant scoop of Peanuts in a bag.

There will also be a chance to take a swipe at any politician or celebrity in a game called The 'ed 'itter. All guests will be expected to maintain good circulation.

We talked about this post directly above,  Don, but frankly, I'm shocked that you would publish it!

Well my younger son just graduated college, so I'm glad he didn't get any 'ink' (inkompletes ) on any of his courses .

He had way too many papers to write!

Oh, tut, Tut, King Don, we all know you just want an excuse to play golf on election day and cast an absent-tee ballot.

You may tut most of all, but as pharaohs I'm concerned, it was a valid reason. I don't want to ram esees down your throat, but I nefer tiree of a quick round, aN ile always take the opportunity agmemnon and agmemnon. I's is just that way inclined and am set in my ways. So far as I see it, it's them hor us and they tend to takelot for granted.

Ku fuh or anyone else ptolemy where I can fit Cleopatra into this? I would be hapy to learn hat or anything else.

Ooo look, 'er indoors has made coffee, she's a bit of a nut you know, but I thank her anyway. "Ptah very much, now shu." I wish she would become a nun.

Now I must take my leave of you becosiris going to get my head around anubisness I thoth I would start, or I'll nefer get it off the ground. Oh, and before you ask, no, its not a pyramid scam.

It's only yourself who is getting e-gypped (on the Internet)

You know, hiS AND "her" towels don't fit here, but the S AND does!

Yes, Donnah, Cleo's patronizing reminds me of the time soon after Sir Lancelot moved to Egypt, when he opened his very successful Used Camel Lot!

I like that one from you tomb me.

I am quite surprised that Geezer (GIZA) hasn't had his two sheckles worth here yet. Me sphynx he must be all out of puns.

When Egypt built the dam across the Nile, they came up with the name for it when an onlooker said, "Cor! Aswan 'ell of a dam".

Is this another Egyptian Riddle from Don? If I can't figure it out, it ruins my day!

So to feel better, I watch reruns of Dynasty on TV.

Or visit the Empire State Building in NYC.

But I don't have the Luxory of just wandering aimlessly in the desert year after year...
