Matt1: Hello Rush!

Rush: Hello, Matt!

Rush: How is the day going?

Matt1: I like the pic….Nice intro for the night!

Rush: πŸ™‚

Matt1: I’m in quarantine still

Matt1: You?

Rush: It also helps me spot the top of our dialogue for tonight as I make the copy!

Matt1: Ahhhh, clever

Rush: “dual-purpose”!

Rush: Are more masks poping out in your area?

Matt1: I understand schools were cancelled in SD?

Rush: (popping)

Matt1: Oh yes, everyone wears them

Rush: I have not heard that, actually, Matt!

Matt1: Not sure if I told you….

Matt1: I heard on news that SD and LA? were closed for the year….remote learning

Rush: I’ll need to check my school email.

Rush: Crazy.

Rush: Blue state.

Rush: Oh, well.

Matt1: Anyway, my wife went to dentist….week later she got a letter saying she “may” have been in contact with someone with COVID

Rush: Is she getting tested?

Louise has joined this room

Louise: Hi guys

Rush: Louise!

Matt1: We were both put on self quarantine for 10 days, since we didn’t have symptoms….We finally got an appointment for testing….

Rush: Good evening to you!

Matt1: Hello Louise!

Louise: I’ll be back after I make dinner. But I wanted to say to Matt: that is why I am not going to the dentist!!!

Rush: Sounds like she’s probably all right, Matt!

Rush: Happy about that!

Matt1: We went together….her test came back negative on sat…..still NO word on mine

Louise: We can’t get tested here at all in NJ unless you are sick.

Louise: Okay, back to making dinner: later

Matt1: We test anyone

Rush: What if you suspect you had contact as Matt’s wife did, Louise?

Matt1: Its a numbers game in FL

Louiseβ†’Louise: Then yes but they still want you to be showing symptoms.

Matt1: That’s crazy

Rush: Seems a bit late by then.

Matt1: Yep

Louise: yep

Louise has left this room

Rush: The person in question could be passing the virus to others.

Rush: Lost her.

Matt1: They tested positive, but showed no symptoms at the time of her visit

Rush: I see.

Matt1: They get tested every two weeks here, I think

Rush: What I understand is that the death stats are the more important number.

Rush: As morbid as that souunds.

Matt1: Yes, but they do lag for a few weeks, so….

Rush: There are people who have the virus, but no symptoms.

Rush: Yes.

Matt1: I just want my results, so I can get back to some “normalcy”

Rush: Exactly!

Rush: Early on, our Sarah “might” have come into contact at a swim meet.

Rush: So…14 days later…no symptoms.

Matt1: Ugh….was she tested?

Rush: No.

Matt1: Very good

Rush: She stayed home.

Rush: Yes.

DanVenture: One of my favorites–both as a book and as a movie.

Phil & Mrs Phil: Unless you breath out of your ear

Rush: I suppose that besides mentioning the Borgia family history, that is the second-most forbidden topic, Louise!

Nothere: Put down those glases and do that with a pipe. That looks stupid.

DanVenture: Is that dry ice or what?

Phil & Mrs Phil: Doesn’t it turn out later that Gleeson didn’t really die?

Phil & Mrs Phil: Ooops sorry.

Mike in DC: Ming Toy!

Nothere: And to continuce his criminal entrprises he stole military property.

Dona: lol NT

tenman: temporary alias lol

Rush: πŸ™‚

Mike in DC: Classic lines

Louise: I like the pigeons that wore cameras and took aerial photos

Phil & Mrs Phil: This is the coolest scene

Rush: Another “Toy” to ad to the list!

Rush: MING Toy.

Len Freeman: 1940s cell phone pigeon

Phil & Mrs Phil: Good one Len

Rush: 1941 Calif. plate.

Mike in DC: Ming Toy. It’s real name is Iris Toy…

Louise: Chop suey

Nothere: Just be careful with the touch screen. It bites.

Rush: Was there EVER a “chop suey salesman”???

DanVenture: I was surprised to learn there really is a “castle” in the Mojave.

Rush: Yes, DV!

tenman: Rooms 50Β’

tenman: Just like in King of the ROad

Dona: Chop Suey would be hard to carry in a briefcase

Rush: Yes….0nly about $8.00 today.

Mike in DC: Prophet of the Desert

Len Freeman: ah… Mrs NOdbury

Rush: “Lizzie”

DanVenture: Would such a town support a “seeress”?

Rush: “Man without enemies like dog without fleas.”

Louise: Okay, I am going to say this again. This is the 1940s and yet every movie has an older woman who dresses like she in in 1880!

Phil & Mrs Phil: I was wondering something along the same lines Dan.

Rush: Yes, louise.

tenman: New coook or houseboy?

Nothere: I forsee the seer having financial problems. Couse she does have a millionaire for a client.

Louise: Off my porch is the same as off my lawn, but for the dessert

Louise: desert

Rush: I remember when I was a kid, when I went to a golf course with my dad out in the west San Fernando Valley, there was an old lady working in her garden wearing an old-fashioned bonnet.

Rush: Such anachronisms can happen, it seems!

Mike in DC: Oddly her clothes don’t look completely out of place…

Phil & Mrs Phil: What a rude butler

Rush: “Chu chu chu chu chu…”

hounder: sorry not to stay. my dog just peed on mom’s bed. never a dull moment here

tenman: A lot of people wear what they saw older people wearing when they were children. Only its 60-70 years later

Rush: Uh-oh!

Louise: maybe true tenman

Dona: I’m so sorry Hounder

Rush: Yes, TM!

Mike in DC: Take care, hounder…hope the dog cleans up its act!

Louise: Great set

Rush: Agreed!

hounder: he knows better.

tenman: I like the white suit

Louise: How many Chinese guys would his wife invite?

Dona: Everyone is a spy

Rush: Perfect for the Mojave Desert, TM!

hounder has left this room

Mike in DC: And how many of those would arrive carrying a pigeon?

Nothere: Elvira did a movie and got complemented on how the extras were all dressed in period costumes with the budget she had,. She didn’t have the budget for the extra wardrobe. It was their regular clothes.

Rush: Only ONE!

Louise: What was the case, Rush, needing a medievalist?

Rush: NT: !!!

Mike in DC: lol NT

Rush: Sorry, Louise…

Nothere: As to your question Louise depends on how many Chinesse guys are around.

Rush: I must have missed something!

Rush: If Mr. Manderley wants to live as Cesare Borgia…what’s he doing wearing that suit?

Louise: Charlie is right about anthropologists

Rush: Yes.

Nothere: Fortunatly for Manderly he never saw a picture of Borgia and is free to guess at his outfit.

Rush: “Anxiety neurosis.”

Rush: Yes, NT!

Louise: Accident? He doesn’t know how to put on a mask. That is all.


Rush: Cesare Borgia.

Nothere: Look at that bust .

Nothere: Do you all see her bust?

Louise: what a dude!

Rush: Already started without the artist!

tenman: Clicked on the pic to see if it would enlarge, but I got an error message in cyrillic script in russian!!

Rush: Yes, TM.

Rush: “Chatavod” who offers this chat room, is evidently Russian.

Nothere: The car has been murdered. <Tin Horn>

Dona: LOL NR

Dona: NT

Mike in DC: Let’s see about dees distribiter


Rush: After a search for an adequate Chat Room when our other one ceased to exist, this was the best I could find!

Louise: It works, Rush

tenman: It seems to work just fine!

Rush: Love the “tin horn” NT!

Rush: Chan gets that bit of info in!

Rush: Nice!

Rush: Jimmy’s turn to be insulted.

Louise: 25 bucks is a lot

Rush: 25 bucks!

Len Freeman: Serious $$

Nothere: Well if a seer if gonna get in the car the drive must be safe.

Rush: Nearly $400 today!

Len Freeman: Not sure… I just recognize it from several films

Rush: Opps, indeed!

Rush: (oops)

Mike in DC: That is one serious candle

Mike in DC: Hope all goes well GS!

Louise: Back in the wax museum

Rush: Marie’s mom is facing potential issues, too. Going for a CT scan soon.

Rush: Madame Saturnia’s predictions are a bit vague…but they seem to come true!

Mike in DC: Dancing with the Stars…

Rush: “Man cannot avoid destiny.”

Rush: Mike: πŸ™‚

Nothere: So what does registering your nick do?

Nothere: Crossbow axe yeah I feel safe here.

Mike in DC: Tagara is a particularly useful herb for those suffering from insomnia, as it helps the patient to fall asleep quickly and allows them to wake up without feeling stupefied. The extract of the herb reduces brain and spinal cord irritability and is considered a good remedy for those suffering from restlessness, and stress-related anxiety, without impairing the ability to concentrate, providing a feeling of calmness.

Rush: Yes, NT!

Nothere: But is tagara over the counter?

Rush: TYSM, Mike!

tenman: Good to know. Haven’t had a good night’s sleep in over 20 years.

Rush: I would imagine one needs to obtain tagara from an herbalist?

Len Freeman has joined this room

Louise: accidently on purpose

Rush: “Dead pigeon.”

Mike in DC: Tagra for sale:

Rush: Interesting, Mike!

Louise: Thwack again

Rush: Indeed!

Phil & Mrs Phil: Obvious not meant for pigeon. – love that line.

Nothere: So Private. The military property you stole was killed by a Bogia in a castle in the Mojave?

Matt1: Wrong again…

Rush: NT, you are right. Jimmy has some explaining to do back at the base!

Mike in DC: Of course in DC, we have many “herbalists”

Rush: maybe Pop can help him out!

Phil & Mrs Phil: The first “real” death and no can.

Len Freeman: Ah, the friendly distributor!

Mike in DC: NT. They must be used to Jimmy’s tall tales by now…

Rush: Now…if Ming Toy were a TUcan….

Rush: Thought I’d join in!

Rush: Yes, Mike!

Rush: I like the “mosaic” look.

Louise: What’s with the Egyptian dress?

Rush: Mrs. Hartford’s hair style reflects the coming trend.

Rush: Interesting mask in his hand.

Rush: Not too medieval looking.

Rush: And, Louise, that DOES look like an Egyptian-inspired dress!

Dona: Agreed

Louise: remain in can!

Rush: Nice from apparent threat to Number Two Son transition there!

Matt1: Not tin can

tenman: So tagara = valerian root?

Rush: The stars should tell her that that armor is not empty!
