Boobies Again!

Last night our team "The Street Walkers" sauntered down to the local pub for the quiz. As usual, the questions dealing with TV programmes, films and pop music flummox our fairly elderly brains - we could not even remember who sat in the basket with Andy Pandy!! Can you? We answered Looby Lou but apparently this poor creature was left in a corner - it was Teddy who had the favoured spot. I think my brother, now living in Oz, used to watch Andy Pandy but I thought that a sissy programme!! My idea of TV watching in those days was Hopalong Cassidy and Champion The Wonder Horse!!!

The outcome, as is now obvious, we came last. We did not despair as the kind Quizmaster always provides super booby prizes. This time we were the recipients of Scott's Porridge Oats, a tin of rice pudding, a bottle of sun tan cream, a tub of meringues and some fancy tea. The main thing is we all had a rumbustious time!

Sounds like losing could be a GOOD thing! I wouldn't be any good at that and might give you a run for the last spot:)

I preferred Bill & Ben the Flower Pot Men!

Lindsay, we're off to a trivia night this Saturday night. Of course the most fun part will be that you have to come dressed up. After much discussion, and throwing the cross-dressing idea out the window, we're going in full school uniform (8 of us). Should be fun. We may end up the wooden-spooners too!

Jamie - dob-a-lobba-lob!

Gosh, I had forgotten all about Champion the Wonder Horse!! (and even as I read it the tune popped into my head!!)

Congratulations on, erm, coming last :-)

Well done 'The Street Walkers'... coming last AND receiving bounty. Now that's what I call clever!

I wanted to be a cowgirl when I grew up and I loved Hopalong and Roy and Dale and all those. I was very skilled on my broomstick horse too. Sounds like great fun and that a good time was had by all!

I'd have said Looby loo too! Good prizes!

Hopalong Cassidy! I'd forgotten all about him. What about Casey Jones (steamin' an' a-rollin')?

. . . and the booby prize sounds like dinner to me.
