Mike n Rachel in DC: Odd looking building in this shot19:44

Hawaii_Steve: Opening title: Arylesbone Road, London. Is this correct?19:44

Godwinshelley2: I think so – hard to read the first couple of letters19:44

Rush: 90 seconds…19:44

Rush: Possibly, Steve!19:45

Rush: WOW!19:45

Rush: 75 seconds…19:45

Rush: 30 seconds…19:45

Mike n Rachel in DC: Agreed, Steve. They’re a bit edgy.19:46

Rush: 25…19:46

Rush: 20…19:46

Carolina Foxx + Angel: *revving rubies*19:46

Rush: 15…19:46

Rush: 10…19:46

Carolina Foxx + Angel: *waves to box seats*19:46

Rush: 5…19:46

Rush: GO!!!19:46

Rush: And…Steve was correct!19:46

Rush: :)19:46

HonoluLou: Now we know what road that was.19:46

Rush: Indeed!19:46

Carolina Foxx + Angel: FORGOT TETRAGENE! *runs to dugout*19:46

Rush: I am guessing that they used some of the actual museum in these scenes.19:47

Carolina Foxx + Angel: If the next three guards are John, Paul & Ringo i’ll know the ‘zeum is in Livahpuul.19:47

Rich-Maine: Madam Toussard Las Vegas!19:47

Carolina Foxx + Angel: REALLY, Rich??19:48

HonoluLou: Hard to tell, probably outside. 19:48

HonoluLou: Ouch!19:48

Rush: “You can’t do that!!!”19:48

Hawaii_Steve: Strange opening.19:48

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Don’t go out into the rain, you’re gonna melt, Waxy!19:48

HonoluLou: PaulM, me too. Very cool. 19:49

Rush: Was it in a newer building?19:49

PaulM: yup. i hit 2 museums on the same day19:49

Godwinshelley2: When I was in London the Holmes museum was on loan to some place in Japan19:49

Rich-Maine: Off with his head 19:49

PaulM: cant remember that. its been quite a while19:49

Rush: Only 10 pounds?19:49

Rush: What about the restoration work it will take to fix it?19:49

HonoluLou: Was Holmes home when you went?19:49

Godwinshelley2: no19:50

Carolina Foxx + Angel: I’ll give ya $10 for 20 pounds of wax, Wex.19:50

Rush: :)19:50

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Rush, best you don’t get too curious about the “restoration”. The replicas often appear VERY different after these, uh, incidents.19:51

Ralph Truman: George Winslow

Brian Nissen: Allen Roberts

Rupert Davies: Inspector Duff

Ronald Leigh-Hunt: Wallace

Sydney Monckton: Dr. Antrum (?)

Rich-Maine: And Duff is alive!19:51

Rush: Yes!19:52

Carolina Foxx + Angel: (thinks): “Ah, sheeeee-it, ANOTHER ball of wax. And i’ve got all these cans of worms, opened. Geez.”19:52

Rush: Only, I would say that THIS duff must be a relative of the LATE inspector Duff!19:52

Carolina Foxx + Angel: The Duffer!19:52

Carolina Foxx + Angel: May we hazard a connection with Duff Beer?19:52

HonoluLou: Duff, never died in the book, and actually recovered in C.C. Carries On.19:53

Rush: Hm… Angel…19:53

Rush: And, of course…”The Simpson Case”19:53

Carolina Foxx + Angel: C.C. Carries Duff, it shoulda been.19:53

Mike n Rachel in DC: Simpson? Bart?19:53

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Rush, you just cracked me up!19:53

Rush: AH!19:53

Carolina Foxx + Angel: And YOU two, MnR!!19:53

Rush: I knew it could happen…some day!19:54

Rush: Duff.19:54

Carolina Foxx + Angel: If there’s a Monty Burns ahead i shall need a Duff Beer myself.19:54

mda19083: he was framed19:54

Mike n Rachel in DC: What is Duff’s first name?19:54

HonoluLou: Inspector19:54

Carolina Foxx + Angel: But one lens WASN’T knocked out. Always complaining!19:54

Rush: 19:55

Mike n Rachel in DC: There’s an initial on the door that looks like a backwards L19:55

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Alan Simpson? the [future] Senator?19:55

mda19083: yes rush!19:55

HonoluLou: Cool, CF+A you weren’t kidding!19:55

Carolina Foxx + Angel: The one beer to have when you’re having more than one murder, or one head, or one of anything there might be 2 of!19:56

Mike n Rachel in DC: Where is the sun? It’s night time, you dunce.19:56

HonoluLou: Ah, Schaffer. I recognize the tune19:56

Carolina Foxx + Angel: The Bank of England has tentacles anyplace it doesn’t have branches. You don’t have to go there. They get tp YOU.19:57

Rush: 19:57

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Hey, Rush! I was a Philly kid, i remember Schaefer!! Swill, it was!!19:57

Rush: 19:57

Carolina Foxx + Angel: But swell swill, may i hastily add.19:58

Rush: :)19:58

HonoluLou: Wow! Getting thirsty here.19:58

mda19083: we also had schlitz19:58

Carolina Foxx + Angel: A thousand pounds. Of wax? Or sterling?19:58

mda19083: at eas sill/swll too19:59

mda19083: was19:59

mda19083: swell/swill19:59

Carolina Foxx + Angel: We won’t mention the boys’ joke about sand and Schlitz and beachbabes.19:59

Carolina Foxx + Angel: mda, you got it right each time. Only antidote to Schaefer was more Schaefer. They owe the universe.20:00

Rush: 1,000 pounds in 1957 would be about 20,000 today.20:00

Rush: Yes?20:00

Rush: Great selling point!20:00

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Excuse me, i’m off in the Delorean to 1957. Just an ATM run. Back shortly.20:00

Rush: Small, but high-storied buildings, rise from gradual accumulation of small bricks.20:01

mda19083: angel – sorry but i don’t know the joke20:01

HonoluLou: Well that’s clear as Mud. Can anyone read that?20:01

Hounder has joined this room20:01

Mike n Rachel in DC: I think it’s a Back to the Future reference, mda20:01

Carolina Foxx + Angel: gee, mda, i forgot it. Alexa might now. She’s a bit of a flirt, so to speak.20:01

HonoluLou: Hi Hounder20:02

Rush: I have been doing that tonight.20:02

Mike n Rachel in DC: Hi Hounder…hope the trip is going well!20:02

Carolina Foxx + Angel: MnR: Nah, it’s cruder than that. A real crudite. High-school stuff. Juvenile. Puerile. Juvenal called it puerile in his Commentaries.20:02

Rush: 20:02

Carolina Foxx + Angel: *Ting!!*20:02

Rich-Maine: Poor doc!20:02

Rush: I hope that you as well as your mother are having a good evening, Hounder.20:03

Hounder: She did great in the truck. No however we’re playing in wierdsville.20:03

Hounder: Now20:03

Rush: Sorry, hounder.20:03

Godwinshelley2: It’s hard20:03

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Speaking of things optical, everybody remember Moe Green in The Godfather, got blasted while on the massage table, first shot crashed his glasses?20:04

Mike n Rachel in DC: Sorry to hear that, Hounder20:04

Rush: But, maybe there is something familiar and/or stimulating about riding in the truck?20:04

Carolina Foxx + Angel: We wish you well, Hounder. My mother was the same.20:04

Godwinshelley2: or the music on the radio20:04

Rush: yes.20:04

Hounder: Thanks rush. I expect this will be her last traveling trip. It becoming to hard and confusing for her20:04

Carolina Foxx + Angel: My mom was ALWAYS calmed by music generally, most especially the ’40s-20:05

Carolina Foxx + Angel: ’50s stuff on Music Choice.20:05

Rush: I see. Sorry, Hounder. That must be very tough.20:05

Godwinshelley2: Yes I played the 40s on my car radio when I was driving my folks places20:05

Rush: Yes?20:05

Carolina Foxx + Angel: It’s actually good stuff!20:05

mda19083: you are in my thoughts hounder20:05

Rush: Familiar sounds from the past.20:05

Carolina Foxx + Angel: I can’t tell you how many times i’ve started to dial PEnnsylvania 6-5000.20:06

Rush: :)20:06

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Uh-oh.20:06

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Homer Simpson would steal clothes from ANY works.20:07

Rush: Simpson is…INNOCENT.20:07

Rich-Maine: :)20:07

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Well, THIS is a fine kettle of fish.20:07

Rush: :)20:07

Hounder: I don’t know why she did wellin the truck and isn’t doing well now that we’re stopped20:07

Godwinshelley2: maybe put on the radio again – if you can get the same channel in the house20:08

Rush: Interesting question, Hounder.20:08

PaulM has left this room20:08

mda19083: you can still dial 212-736-500020:08

Hounder: 4o’s and Sinatra are her favs20:08

Rush: Again, it might be something of a comfort to her?20:08

Rush: maybe some past memory?20:08

Hounder: I can when we get to fl,but don’t have a way to play it in the camper20:09

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Speaking of penny newspapers, earlier today i was rereading the story of the NYT’s purchase, for $1.1 BILLLLLLLLLION, of my town’s Boston Globe, & the Times not too long later having to unload it & netting exactly $1 (+ assumption of liability)–& the NYT feeling relieved to get it over. Ooof!20:09

HonoluLou: Hounder, I saw something on Youtube I believe about Tony Bennett. At 91, he can still sing the songs as always, but once finished he’s unsure about things.20:09

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Uh-oh. Curious duck about to quake, Quack.20:09

Rush: “Cureous duck will now put foot on unsuspecting worm.”20:10

Rush: Curious20:10

Mike n Rachel in DC: <kids-yeah>20:11

Hounder: Interesting hl. Mom likes him as well20:11

Carolina Foxx + Angel: Good night all!! Must rush away—family call. Till next week!!20:11

HonoluLou: It was his doctor, something about the connections still being alined in the brain with music.20:11

Rush: Case solved!20:11

Rush: The guilty party was Lumpy’s dad!20:12

Mike n Rachel in DC: Another Chan triumph!20:12

Rush: I would agree, Steve.20:12

Rich-Maine: I cant see…where are my glasses!20:12

Rush: Next week….”The Chinese Ring.”20:12

Hawaii_Steve: Rich, they’re under your wife’s body.20:12

HonoluLou: These are pretty good.20:13

Mike n Rachel in DC: They’re dark, but interesting20:13

Rich-Maine: Thanks Rush…..night all, c u next week 20:13
