    Make that “Mr. Holmes”.

    Lynn’s Notes:


    A false alarm set off by a geological research helicopter sent the Hercules rescue team in the wrong direction. With just the canoe for shelter, the lost men waited anxiously for signs of help. Every sound, the wind, the waves on the water, small movements in the brush, sounded like the engine of a plane. Rod had left specific instructions on where he would be, and couldn’t understand why it was taking so long for help to arrive.

    Good morning, Vagabonds.


    Mark, my guesses were the same as Rita’s. I don’t know number 2, except possibly Marty Feldman and Ryan O’Neal playing “identical” twins in the remake of Beau Geste. Michael suggested Hope & Crosby in one of the “Road” pictures.


    Today’s high is predicted to be 94, and it’s already 89. The sun is behind the clouds today (as it was yesterday, so I missed the blue moon). I don’t mind the heat, but I wish it would cool down at night.


    Today we are going to see a new movie starring Ian McKellan called “Holmes”. It’s about Sherlock Holmes in his retirement years and the trailer looks like it will be interesting and fun. I hope it’s better than the Morton Downey Jr. version. We walked out on that one.

    Thankfully, I’ve never met one of those.

    Okay, I talked myself into finding the clip on YouTube. It is still just as funny as it was back at the Anaheim Convention Center in 1976.

    Good morning Vagabonds.


    We only got up to around 99 yesterday, but it did not cool down much last night. It was 86 at about 5:30 and the humidity is still high. Forecast is for about the same today.


    Mark, my favorite Skelton sketch was the “Guzzler’s Gin” commercial. Smooooooooooth!
    I saw him do that live once. When the stagehand brought out a tall stool and the bottle and glass, he set the glass upside down. When Skelton went to start the routine, he evidently didn’t realize it was upside down and started pouring the “gin” on the upturned bottom. Then he turned backstage and ad libbed for a couple of minutes about the stagehand doing it on purpose.
    I enjoyed every minute of his performance, including his “expansion” of the Pledge of Allegiance. It wasn’t done as a joke, and is very moving.

    If you go back to the last new strip on Annie (6/13/10), there are well over 1000 comments. Among them are Bassmanbob’s alternate story that continued from where the “real” one left off. I think it got up to 33 chapters.

    Mark Trail One of the first things you learn in diving school is the buddy system. You NEVER dive alone.
    Mary Worth My gut reaction a few days ago when Ian said Toby would be happy to make dinner was “uh-oh”. Looks like I was right.

    Oops

    May I suggest that you post instructions to on how to bold Lynn’s notes just after turnover sometime. I suspect that M2MM does not know how and does not check back after he/she posts.
