Ok! you'll like this I think. does everyone over 30 know the
movie or play, "Arsenic And Old Lace"? One of the characters
was a man that thought he was Teddy Roosevelt. every one in awhile
in come running out of room, blow on a trumpet and yell "CHARGE".
And there were times he went to the basement. Q is :
where did he think he was going when he went to the basement?
(BTW: I played this part in the early '80's. on stage, well, it's a long story.)
Ah! this is too easy! there is really only one absolutely correct answer.
If vyou're under 30, there's google.
Go.

The brother digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts' victims)

That's Ms. Bird, if you don't mind!

Before I email you my address, though, we should probably get a ruling on whether this violates the rule against no buying/selling/trading before I've made 50 posts. I wasn't thinking about that when I answered the trivia question. Oops.

If It does, the prize can go to Bob (but only if he promises to stop that tantrum!

Congratulations Ms. Bird , good job answering ........

I think I was running errands at about 1pm , took the dog with since we hit a balmy 65 degrees and then a nice walk on a local trail.

Todays question was actually one of the few times I could answer it without a reference , great movie , one of my teachers had our class view it back in gradeschool and the one of the few things I remember was that he was digging a trench in the basement which he thought was the Panama canal.

Ms. Chicken, you are neither buying, selling or trading, so the rule does not apply.

You are the winner, Chook.

Am terribly sorry, Ms. Chicken. had my mind on a sniper that I used to spar with on eBay. He (well,I'm not sure now),
anyway the name was chicken fried steak. I don't imagine that is you. It was at the very least 5 years ago.
BTW, I checked all the rules and I couldn't see anything illegal. Most likely Bobby would have zapped it by now,
anyway.
Let me first give my credentials. I am a member of APS #213869. They take 90 days to approve a member. Have a store on
Stampwants and approaching 1000 feedback at 100%. On eBay w/ 290 feedback at 100%, on Stampoffers with several 100 feedback
at 100% and on stamphead at 62 feedback w/100%. Several others here have known my wife and I from stampoffers for over a year
and a half. Just hoping to reassure you I'm not some kind of psycho. (although some may beg to differ).
perhaps if you would have called yourself "spring chicken" I might not have made the gender mistake.

So it's official, I'm a winner!

Stampaholic, Since I'm in my 40s, I don't think I qualify as a "spring chicken" anymore.


P.S. Looks like I'm not able to access forum email. Am I supposed to have more posts before I'm allowed to do that, or am I doing something wrong?
