New Competition. by Ken Dunn on 9 July 2015 7:40pm
Have you noticed that if a subject title already exists predictive text will give you its title. I think this is a new facility here.

Anyway, for the latest new competition see the second post under the Clangers topic.

Please submit your answer here with reason(s) for it.

Answer in a few weeks and the prize for being correct is Ken Dunn's Sherlock Holmes commendation.

Just keeping this near the top of the topics.

Well, the only thing I can think of is that you pressed the wrong button on the cash machine, the £50 one and not the £100 one and maybe the extra £30 had come from the money already in your wallet, even though you said it was separated by receipts. Or you had decided to withdraw £50 instead of £100 and forgot about it.
Re: New Competition. by Ken Dunn on 12 July 2015 6:38am
Correct Suzulu.

Because of my ailment I had been spending less money than expected while on holiday so the £80 bundle comprised the £50 withdrawn and a £20 and a £10 note which I separated with the £50 when putting it in my wallet. This gave 2 x £10s together with 3 x £20s which made the £80 bundle I had thought I had withdrawn for the original £100 that was in my mind.

Congratulations Suzulu. You win the Sherlock Holmes prize.

And there was me thinking that it was all a dream Mrs Ken had had, and that she would wake up to find you coming out of the shower.

[Or was that Dallas ??]

Glad I was right in something! LOL!

LOL to your post, Anne.

Talking of Sherlock Holmes, I see Benedict Cumberbatch was in the royal box at Wimbledon today, lucky fella!

The winner of the new competition for the best recent joke in the 'joke book' is ...
Re: New Competition. by Ken Dunn on 3 September 2016 12:16am
My joke of 18 June 2016 about the TV channels. It took me back to my milk joke at the start of the joke book. It was a close run thing with the sun joke the previous day. Apologies to other entrants for not reading the jokes much further than stated.

Should I take a bow or allow other votes?
