Hold it, hold it...time out! I got the three stooges, and even tenors, but. Is "The Three Tenors" a legitimate trio? I saw tenors, but was looking for Irish or even Italian... Please note: I am just asking. Just because *I don't happen to know of any certain group does not mean they don't exist!

Beautifully done (or should I say "sneakedly done") Mister Beck. But you stepped into a trap that was set back in 1962. That was the year that I first saw KON TIKI the movie and obviously I then knew the name of the craft that THOR HEYERDHL sailed across the Pacific. He became my hero for life.

Well, not exactly for life. His second voyage across the Atlantic to America was less romantic. Thor bitched and his crew (mostly whiners) bitched and whined their way almost to South America before their reed boat fell apart. But still I liked their spunk (whatever "spunk" means).

Good enough, then. And yes, it was funny. I didn't realize they had sung together enough to be known as The Three Tenors. I am, um, not a fan of opera.
Thanks!

Some kids think I’m too freaking old – a seventy-year-old mountain climber! Hah! Call me irresponsible, but I don’t care. It’s what I want to do and I figure “when it’s my time to die, it’s my time to die” and not before.

GOLDA MEIR!

A new and trying onnicle may yet offer folks a mystery. Understand: readers don‘t easily register just any message. Everybody sees something that’s expected, wanted - a rendering that lets every eye record encoded messages in crafty knots.

This was a novel, then a movie with a Duke Ellington soundtrack. The title and the male and female lead actors are all in there. [Initially I used “cunning” instead of “crafty,” but I thought that might not be an adjective in good standing with linguists.]

ANATOMY OF A MURDER - JAMES STEWART - LEE REMICK

And for interrupting my night of much-needed sleep you should be hung (not hanged) by you own cunning (and crafty) rope. laugh

Dang, beck, why'd you go odd on the roolz again? Every error I make, trying to sort out what you've done to your material, makes me crazy!

Just a phrase.

GOOD ONE? (I see that in there, but there may be something else.)

Psst--it's an Aussie phrase.
