    I think I like Schwarz’s proverb the most. It’s tickly. Ds’s was too mean. Shnod’s is too… destructive?

    Has anyone tried getting treasure from the Punchy Falls despite the giant hornets? I can think of a few people who may have tried. *laughs*

    Movie ripios are neatios! Thanks for the hard work! *curtsys* Keep the dadblamery coming!

    • 2 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:27

      *nods* Good point. Schwarz’s is the sweetest!

      *laughs* Oh yes! For sure. Dr. Z did!

      *bows* Our pleasure!

  2. 3 erinkenobi2893 September 10, 2014 at 20:33

    I think it would be fun to come in and help host the Movie Ripping Reviews. ;-)

    • 4 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 22:30

      It would be! Would you like to?

      • 5 erinkenobi2893 September 11, 2014 at 11:56

        I don’t know. I’d need advance planning about what we would be ripping. (I’d love to help rip Frozen!) Do you know of a way we could share audio files, once I’d read my part of the script? I know we could write the script using the “share a draft” function. :-)

      • 6 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 15:47

        Well, for audio it would be tough since the files can be rather big…let’s see…do you know about YouSendIt? And…for the script…we can’t use email, right?

      • 7 erinkenobi2893 September 12, 2014 at 13:26

        No, I don’t know about it, but I’m pretty sure I could learn to use it. :-) Well, there is in the “share a draft” thing a link that you can get without sending an email if you click the…. thingy. I’ve also been thinking about getting an email that I can use just for blogging and online friends.

      • 8 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 18:45

        For sure! It’s easy. I recommend it. That would make collaborations so much easier. Just get a gmail account. It’s rather easy.

      • 9 erinkenobi2893 September 12, 2014 at 20:50

        I will have to see about it… I’d need to ask my parents’ permission first.
        Published my own “ripio” of Frozen, just now. Tell me what you think! ;-)

      • 10 Professor VJ Duke September 13, 2014 at 18:17

        Okay!

        I loved it. I like how you had all the points broken down. Was it fun?

      • 11 erinkenobi2893 September 15, 2014 at 00:16

        It was indeed. I think I’ve always loved critiquing works of literature and film. Unfortunately, I forgot to break it down in the way I had been really intending to do so… as an adaption of Hans Christian Anderson’s story “The Snow Queen.” I suppose that will have to wait. *sigh*

      • 12 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:40

        You’ll get to it!

      • 13 erinkenobi2893 September 15, 2014 at 23:52

        Thanks. :-) The encouragement–it helps. :-)

      • 14 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:19

        *smiles* Perfect! That’s what I’m here for. I think.

      • 15 erinkenobi2893 September 16, 2014 at 20:10

        It’s a very good reason to be here… :-)

      • 16 Professor VJ Duke September 17, 2014 at 14:24

        *nods*

  3. 17 Nancy Loderick September 10, 2014 at 18:06

    So Professor,

    I wish you had been around when I was a teenager (way back in the day), because my Dad used to quote proverbs quite often. I wonder what he would have said if I quoted one of yours back at him?

    Something tells me I might have been sent to my room and I would still be in my room!

    Nancy

    • 18 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 18:18

      Oh, that would’ve been cool! Do you suppose he’d like them?

      *laughing* Oh dear. That’s true: He might not like getting a proverb back!

  4. 19 Susan P September 9, 2014 at 19:34

    I think the weeks are getting a bad rap. What else grows in all kinds of soil, needs little care? The only issue might be they don’t grow in straight lines.

    I always suspected that there was treasure in the PL. And that was a mean stab at Mr. R.

    • 20 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:17

      But maybe they have a very attractive pattern–if one would stop to look. I’ve never looked, though–have you?

      Yes, lots of treasure. Would you go after it?

      • 21 Susan P September 10, 2014 at 17:55

        I think so…some of them. We have some beautiful “weeds.”

      • 22 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 18:13

        Oh you’re just saying that!

      • 23 Susan P September 10, 2014 at 23:03

        Nope. I can send you a picture if you like.

      • 24 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 15:37

        Would love it!!

      • 25 Susan P September 11, 2014 at 21:43

        As soon as I can…maybe tomorrow. I’ll try to get a shot of the cactus.

      • 26 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 12:51

        Take your time, and thanks!

      • 27 Susan P September 12, 2014 at 19:30

        Yes, we are in a deep cleaning of the premises and when I’m done, I’m done for the day.

      • 28 Professor VJ Duke September 13, 2014 at 18:06

        And it’s time to watch baseball.

      • 29 Susan P September 13, 2014 at 18:26

        I almost wish I could. Unfortunately, we do not have cable and we live out in the dadblame middle of nowhere so rabbit ears don’t even work.

      • 30 Professor VJ Duke September 13, 2014 at 18:32

        You’re really not missing anything! It’s good to live apart, I think.

      • 31 Susan P September 15, 2014 at 14:36

        Well, it would keep Harry out from under foot if we had a TV.

      • 32 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 22:17

        *laughs* There’s always…movies!

      • 33 Susan P September 16, 2014 at 00:03

        True. But sports are a bigger draw for him.

      • 34 Professor VJ Duke September 16, 2014 at 13:26

        That’s because they’re spicy.

  5. 35 masgautsen September 9, 2014 at 15:41

    The newsletters are very good fun and informative too! You can get your PL news and a good laugh at the same time :)

    • 36 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:00

      *bows* Many thanks! So glad you said that, actually. I’ve been thinking, you see, about maybe stopping them, but I won’t.

  6. 37 InfiniteZip September 9, 2014 at 09:07

    Weeds are drinkable things, dandelion wine…mmmm but I must agree with number three of course. Thickly things are fun :)

    • 38 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:58

      No! Seriously? Is that true, Zippy? There’s dandelion wine???

      • 39 InfiniteZip September 9, 2014 at 16:27

        Of,course, you have to make it yourself, you need a gazillion of them too,,

      • 40 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:04

        Is it sweet or salty?

      • 41 InfiniteZip September 10, 2014 at 16:07

        Sweet like me :) of course :)

      • 42 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 18:10

        I should try some. But I might sneeze, you know.

  7. 43 Micah Kipfer September 8, 2014 at 23:26

    It’s quite wise to wear fake flowers in times like these; so that the weeds other people are all wearing don’t strangle the life out o’ your ornament.

    • 44 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:55

      *laughing lots* What a good thought! But what color, Micah?

      • 45 Micah Kipfer September 9, 2014 at 19:43

        Beige. Beige has class.

      • 46 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:18

        I so agree. It’s wonderful.

  8. 47 walt walker September 8, 2014 at 20:56

    I like number two the best.

    A treasure concealed within a waterfall and guarded by hornets? I daresay, I think I just might be able to get to such a treasure, and get away with it. I would use it for good, of course. Is it already being used for good, though? That would be unfortunate, in that I would feel bad about taking it.

    • 48 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:41

      *laughs* Well…it’s not being used at all, so you’re good to go. Will you give me 75%?

      • 49 walt walker September 9, 2014 at 23:24

        But…there’s hornets!

      • 50 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:26

        We’ll put you in armor, Walt. Like gold armor. How’s that?

      • 51 walt walker September 10, 2014 at 20:46

        But still, I’m taking all the risk. And you are getting 75%. I’m not terribly good at mathematics, but it seems like a not very good deal.

      • 52 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 22:32

        *laughing* But, Walt, you’re getting a whole 25% by yourself! That’s fair, I’d say.

      • 53 walt walker September 11, 2014 at 00:42

        No, I will take no more than 20%. The rest must go to the Foundation. Whatever that is. Because that’s the kind of adventurer I am.

      • 54 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 15:43

        Well, the foundation could be our store, you know.

  9. 55 Debbie September 8, 2014 at 20:43

    Well, it appears Daddy Salami wins the proverb contest today — by the way, what does he earn for his victory??

    What kind of treasure would Punchy Falls yield, if one could get past the hornets, that is?

    Professor, your editing project sounds fascinating. Thanks for the update, and do keep us informed. Can hardly wait to see where this is going!

    • 56 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:41

      Well, I’ve never given it thinks! What do you suppose he should win?

      Well, rubies…gems, gold silver…all sorts of cool things. Worth going after, huh?

      More ripios are coming!

  10. 57 The Lite Rider September 8, 2014 at 20:40

    I laughed at Daddy Salami’s proverb, but I liked Schwarz’s the best. It’s true that weeds tickle the plants they grow between!

    Hornets around the falls sound intriguing. Are the multi-colored and do they buzz loudly? It’s amazing how many … unique … things there are in the PL’s!

    Bud Parker is a meanie. Obviously HE has no manners. That said, a large pink fake flower does not sound appealing at all. I am hoping that Mr. Ratherquite’s ladies did not choose this accessory!

    The Professor’s update sounds absolutely laconic! It does sound like lots has been going on though…..

    • 58 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:40

      DS is so mean! Yes, I think that’s about right. It sounds right, at least.

      *laughing* Unique indeed! They buzz horribly loudly! But there always brown, I think. Ugly, too, you know. Like those Japanese Hornets, you know.

      You know, that was probably Mr. R’s own idea. One of the ladies will doubtless take it off him. They wouldn’t let him wear that. I think you like Mr. R! Better than Parker!

      It was laconic! Yes…that’s because the professor is like Tigger, you know.

  11. 59 LadyPinkRose September 8, 2014 at 19:09

    I”m here. Proverbs ….. I like number three. Besides, I thought I proved over at Petals that weeds are not weeds after all, but flowers indeed. Falls ….. T’is a shame there must be hornets around waterfalls. Those are nasty! Why must there be nasty at PL? Keep up with the awesome editing work, Professor. We all like it when you rip movies. On the fly …. bye!!! LadyP

    • 60 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:41

      Well, LadyP, there’s nasty everywhere! For instance, I’m about 80% nasty, you know.

      • 61 LadyPinkRose September 8, 2014 at 20:33

        *horrified expression* You are? Then you sure did fool me!

      • 62 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:38

        Surely you don’t think the professor is sweet, do you?

      • 63 LadyPinkRose September 9, 2014 at 14:53

        Underneathe that rotted mop, sure I do! *GRIN!*

      • 64 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 15:02

        It’s lovely hair!

      • 65 LadyPinkRose September 9, 2014 at 15:51

        I do not consider rotten, with rats in it, mop, a good subsitute for lovely hair.

      • 66 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:01

        But isn’t my hair lovely?

      • 67 LadyPinkRose September 10, 2014 at 15:15

        EEK!

      • 68 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:34

        You hate it!

      • 69 LadyPinkRose September 10, 2014 at 16:06

        Whatever gave you THAT idea?

      • 70 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 18:10

        Your praise of it.

      • 71 LadyPinkRose September 10, 2014 at 18:43

        Of what? I must have had a brain blip. Oops.

      • 72 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 22:26

        Like a blip on a radar?

      • 73 LadyPinkRose September 10, 2014 at 22:35

        Exactly. Blink. What just happened?

      • 74 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 22:40

        Godzilla is here!

      • 75 LadyPinkRose September 10, 2014 at 22:49

        YUP! Gotcha!

      • 76 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 15:35

        *hangs head*

      • 77 LadyPinkRose September 11, 2014 at 16:44

        *LAUGHS LOUDLY*

      • 78 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 20:30

        *growls*

      • 79 LadyPinkRose September 11, 2014 at 20:38

        *eyeballs as big as saucers*

      • 80 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 20:41

        Like an alien!

      • 81 LadyPinkRose September 11, 2014 at 20:46

        Then you are from outer space! Admit it! You are!

      • 82 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 12:48

        Admitted!

      • 83 LadyPinkRose September 12, 2014 at 16:32

        How do you know to speak English then? When whence did you learn?

      • 84 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 19:03

        You taught me, didn’t you?

      • 85 LadyPinkRose September 12, 2014 at 23:54

        No not I, said the pie. Hmmmm … no not pie. Stye. Yes, that’s it. Stye.

      • 86 Professor VJ Duke September 13, 2014 at 18:21

        The Pie?! *laughs*

      • 87 LadyPinkRose September 13, 2014 at 19:55

        *giggles* Unbelievable!

      • 88 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:01

        It was good!

  12. 89 lifeconfusions September 8, 2014 at 18:04

    The first one had me laughing so hard, “A weed is like me son, Ruber. They keep growing and getting uglier every day.”
    The whole post was brilliant Mr.Professor ! :D

    • 90 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:41

      *bows* So many thanks! Do you like Daddy Salami?

      • 91 lifeconfusions September 9, 2014 at 15:17

        Ah I’ve just read his name. sorry but don’t know much about him, would you like to share? :)

      • 92 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 14:57

        Sure. Well, he’s a strange chap that lives in the PL. And has a wicked voice. Like the professor. Did you know I was ugly?

      • 93 lifeconfusions September 11, 2014 at 10:28

        Lol NOBODY is ugly ! Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder after all ;)

      • 94 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 15:46

        *laughing* That is so true! You’re very wise.

      • 95 lifeconfusions September 12, 2014 at 11:53

        Oh I try ;)

      • 96 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 12:59

        That’s what it takes at times, you know!

  13. 97 weggieboy September 8, 2014 at 17:22

    Sadly, Daddy Salami knows best…!

    • 98 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:40

      He seems to. But I wonder if he was just showing off.

  14. 99 Julie Harris September 8, 2014 at 15:34

    Proverb #2 is most accurate….and those pesky weeds will not leave my yard! Looking forward to the next ripping movie review!!

    • 100 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:37

      Yes, what’s up with those weeds anyway?

      Thank you! It’s a trip.

  15. 101 Lady Cheetah September 8, 2014 at 14:17

    Proverbs #2 is the winner although I must admit DS was extremely brutal. Not sure if that was supposed to be an intended analogy or brutal truth.

    Never have I heard a parent say how ugly their child is unless they were abusive, drunk, butt hurt or all of the above. But then again this is Daddy Salami you know.

    • 102 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:36

      Do you think, Lady, it could be how he expresses his love?

      • 103 Lady Cheetah September 8, 2014 at 19:42

        If that is love I would not want to see hate. Ya know I used to feel sorry for Ruber and all but seeing that he doesn’t leave makes me think he gets something out of it. Such is life…

      • 104 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:37

        That’s a good point. Well, I guess, DS protects him lots. And then, Ruber does live at Ruber’s Catering, you know.

  16. 105 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 8, 2014 at 13:42

    Shnoddy’s proverb is my favorite. I think we’d become bbored if there wasn’t something to fight over and try to overcome. Could just be timing, though.

    I could use a walk to the falls, Duke. Nothing better than discovering treasure, I think. Can I go searching about, please?

    What got I to Parker, Duke? I like Mr. R’s flower. Maybe water will squirt out of it.

    I bet you look very serious when you’re editing, you know! *smiles brightly*

    • 106 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:33

      *nods* Shnoddy always seems to have timing, I think. I agree with you, Audith.

      Sure! I’ll come, too. It can be dangerous. Let’s bring Oscar and Mr. Warrior, too. Maybe Mr. Magi as well. You can take some pics.

      That’d be cool! Well, I think Parker was just…you know, well, dadblameit! I thought he was sweet!

      I sure do! Extreme concentration.

      • 107 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 8, 2014 at 21:48

        Yes, makes perfect sense to me.

        Dangerous has never stopped me. Those two would probably love the adventure. Thank you for inviting them along. *smiles brightly* Mr. Magi? Is he going to surprise us with something, Duke? I’d love to take pictures.

        Bud Parker was what? Duke? Being vicious? Or blunt? Sweet is a stretch.

        With squinting eyes for proof of concentration. ..

      • 108 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:44

        Adventures are tops. We’d each have to carry a la-bar, you know. Well, he’ll probably like to picnic. But, he’ll probably be on some sort of mission. Did you know you can’t take pictures of the professor? I’m like a vampire that way. I disappear.

        Well…he was just…being a bit vicious!

        And twirling of the hair.

      • 109 Audrey Dawn - Oldest Daughter Redheaded Sister September 9, 2014 at 19:23

        La-bar? Is that a sword? Do we all get one? What about Charlie…is he coming along? I will pack a basket for us. I don’t mind a mission. Maybe we’ll discover a new flying fish or dig up something Ruber’s hiding. I wouldn’t dream of trying to take your picture, you know. Stop being so skittish! I do like vampires.

        I just like poking at you. *smiles brightly*

        I don’t twirl my hair unless I’m flirting thank you very much. Or are you twirling your hair, in which case you should definitely get that buzz soon! *smiles*

      • 110 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:15

        I meant ka-bar! Dadblame spellcheck!!! Well, if you must bring Charlie! The professor is skittish. I’m like a troll who lives in a hole. Do you like Twilight?

        Huff-Humery!

        Well, you can always twirl hair–unless you’re bald.

  17. 111 Simply Skeptical September 8, 2014 at 13:37

    Dadddy Salami is so nasty. Sometimes his love just shines for Rubie and at other times, well…giggles in memory. The other two proverbs are true.

    Just as with many of nature’s beauties safer to view from a distance; Punchy Falls is one of those. What a site a cylindrical waterfall must be! Question: Has any daredevil Punchy Lander attempted the barrel thing over the Falls?

    Bud was rude to Mr. R. Just highlights his poor upbringing.

    Oh I sure am looking forward to another Ripping Movie Review! Rippio away. I wonder what lucky or should I say unlucky movie has caught the Professor’s attention this time?

    • 112 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:31

      But, you see, SS, maybe this is his love for Ruber shining through?

      Oh, I bet so. I know that MM has done it. But I don’t think he wanted to. It was a war ground at one time, you see. A vicious one.

      Bud Parker? Now, I thought he was speaking some sense. Are you positively sure about that?

      Well, it’s what the analysts tell me to do next. I’m like a puff of wind…blowing this way this day, and that way that day.

      • 113 Simply Skeptical September 8, 2014 at 22:47

        Such love one can do without.

        MM survived the Punchy Falls Fall! Wowawee! He’s my hero!

        No sense as in nonsense for Bud Boy. Yep! he’s absolutely rude & mannerless. Mr. R. should have gloved him one to the cheek.

        Excellent Analysts! (Laughing) Hope they blow Prof. Puff towards the next Ripping Movie Review real soon. :-)

      • 114 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:51

        He is a hero!

        Mr. R wouldn’t do that! It’s be rude and crude, you see.

        They are!

  18. 115 FictionFan September 8, 2014 at 13:37

    DS makes a valid point, I feel, while poor Shnoddy is back in the dismals again. But as usual my Schwarzy just cuts through all the nonsense to get to the essential truth of life. What a philosopher that man is! And so generous to share his wisdom with us all…

    I thought the treasure was all inside Mr Butterfield’s factories? A waterfall seems a silly place to keep chocolate.

    Well! Mr Parker is so rude!! I’m glad to see at least one of the gentlemen makes an effort to dress when attending a party. No doubt Mr Parker goes along in cargo pants and a baseball cap…

    What movie rip?? When??

    • 116 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:29

      Your hate for Ruber is astounding, madam! I share my wisdom–all day!!!!!

      *laughing lots* Don’t the glittering treasures, like: rubies and gold, mean anything to you, FEF? Would you rather have a chocolate bar or a diamond?

      Uh-oh. But…so do I… Isn’t that perfect party stuff to wear? I thought so.

      Soon, I think! The last bit of editing is being edited by your friend, Mic. Why…probably P&P of course!

      • 117 FictionFan September 8, 2014 at 22:45

        Oh, not hate! Occasionally I even almost like him…a bit. *nods sympathetically* I know you do, dear C-W-W, I know you do. (So jealous!)

        Ooh, a diamond, please!! Then I could sell it and just think how many chocolate bars I could buy then…

        No, you must wear formal evening wear – it’ll be worth it! Every girl you meet will swoon…including FF! *simpers and flutters eyelashes*

        Ah yes! Mic! What would we do without him, eh? You wouldn’t dare!! *growls*

      • 118 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:50

        He has a funny laugh… *laughing and maybe growls*

        I knew you were going to say that! You wouldn’t be able to sell this diamond, though. It’d be…too big to sell.

        You mean like a bow tie? *hangs head* Rats. I bet BUS wouldn’t!

        No, you’re right! Imagine going through 24 hours of footage! 2 is just enough. (You have a nice growl.)

      • 119 FictionFan September 9, 2014 at 16:59

        He has – it’s not as wicked as DS’s yet though.

        I could borrow Ruber’s nuke to break it up into saleable chunks…

        Well, yes, a nicely tied bowtie is rather spiffy. But not nearly as spiffy as a carelessly untied bow tie draped round the casually unbuttoned collar of a dress shirt… *swoons and falls off chair* I bet she’d be too busy reading to notice…

        It’s not 24 hours!! And Darby (as you know) is sooo cool… (Thanks! Is it fluffy?)

      • 120 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:06

        I don’t think he’ll ever reach that status. I hope he doesn’t!

        *laughs* Just make sure you’re far, far, far, far away. Wouldn’t want you to…blow up!

        Hahaha! You’re too much! Maybe just a tie. Or a t-shirt!!!

        Well, 8, then! He is not. He’s awkward, and you know it! (Yes!!!)

      • 121 FictionFan September 10, 2014 at 21:02

        Oh dear! If you go to a party wearing a t-shirt and tie, I do hope you’ll pull your baseball cap down over your face so no-one recognises you…

      • 122 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 22:36

        Well, we can skip the tie. But when you get all dressed up, you feel as stiff as a board just whitewashed!

      • 123 FictionFan September 11, 2014 at 13:34

        Hmm…I’m in the unfortunate position of sort of agreeing with that! But I bet you got someone else to do the whitewashing…

      • 124 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 15:57

        Yes, but who do you think?

      • 125 FictionFan September 11, 2014 at 18:19

        I hope it was Brute! Or Bubbles! Or both…

      • 126 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 20:35

        Mic, of course!

  19. 127 LadyPinkRose September 8, 2014 at 13:15

    I’ll be back when I can to read this. Truly yours, LadyP

    • 128 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 13:27

      Well, hi, LadyP!

      • 129 LadyPinkRose September 8, 2014 at 13:54

        *wishing arrows would go up for smile*

      • 130 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:34

        Why arrows?

      • 131 LadyPinkRose September 8, 2014 at 20:32

        Prof, I was trying to DRAW a smile. I guess I kinda failed. Oopsie. Even LadyP makes mistakes now and then.

      • 132 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:37

        The professor makes mistakes way more than LadyP does!

      • 133 LadyPinkRose September 9, 2014 at 14:52

        You sure about this? After all, YOU are the Professor!

      • 134 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 15:02

        I am the only one, you know!

      • 135 LadyPinkRose September 9, 2014 at 15:49

        Yes, I know.

      • 136 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:01

        *laughs*

      • 137 LadyPinkRose September 10, 2014 at 15:13

        Why are you laughing? I take these matters very seriously you know!

      • 138 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 15:33

        Well, so do I! Was I wicked?

      • 139 LadyPinkRose September 10, 2014 at 16:05

        And then some! *grimace*

      • 140 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 18:09

        Great! I say, great!

      • 141 LadyPinkRose September 10, 2014 at 18:41

        You prefer grimaces over smiles? Why you are nasty, Sir, dasteredly so! *putting back of hand on forehead and heaving a huge sigh*

      • 142 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 22:24

        Grimaces are cuter, LadyP! Surely you know that.

      • 143 LadyPinkRose September 10, 2014 at 22:34

        Yes, lovely beard!

      • 145 LadyPinkRose September 10, 2014 at 22:48

        That was suspposed to be a grimace. I was that far off, huh?

      • 146 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 15:34

        No, I’m just being wicked.

      • 147 LadyPinkRose September 11, 2014 at 16:38

        Well! You are doing a find job then! *laughs*

      • 148 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 20:29

        *laughs happily*

      • 149 LadyPinkRose September 11, 2014 at 20:37

        Anything to make the Professor happy!

      • 150 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 20:41

        A cherry cake, then.

      • 151 LadyPinkRose September 11, 2014 at 20:44

        With whipped creme of course and a cherry on top!

      • 152 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 12:47

        Lots of cherries!

      • 153 LadyPinkRose September 12, 2014 at 16:30

        K. Lots of cherries instead of just one. What WAS I thinking?

      • 154 Professor VJ Duke September 12, 2014 at 19:03

        You were thinking of pencils, I think.

      • 155 LadyPinkRose September 12, 2014 at 23:53

        Purple pencils to be precise. Thank you, Professor!

      • 156 Professor VJ Duke September 13, 2014 at 18:21

        Purple?!

      • 157 LadyPinkRose September 13, 2014 at 19:53

        Why not? What have YOU got against purple now? First pink and now purple??? *GEESH!*

      • 158 Professor VJ Duke September 15, 2014 at 13:01

        Girls colors!

  20. 159 PorterGirl September 8, 2014 at 13:13

    I nearly shed a little tear at DS’ proverb – he is being unfair on himself, I am sure. I think Schwarz has the right idea about the weeds, Shnodgrate seems a bit apocolyptic about them.

    The waterfall sounds charming. I would love to see all the treasure. But how can the Punchies be sure that the giant hornets won’t steal the treasure? Don’t they like shiny things? Or is that magpies? Hmm.

    Good to see Mr R off to another party, I hope he is taking The Ladies. They are lucky to be taken to so many parties!

    Always good to hear about progress in the studio, do pass on my best to all concerned.

    • 160 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 13:27

      Yes…there’s bunches of different takes! I think I prefer to think of weeds as beautiful. That way, they’re not near as bothersome.

      *laughing* Good point! Imagine if the hornets did take a liking to treasure! They’d pilot it off…to an island somewhere. Of course, Kirk would shunt them, then.

      Of course, he is! And I hear Parker is taking his girlfriend. I might go, you know.

      *bows* Many thanks, Lucy!

      • 161 PorterGirl September 8, 2014 at 14:10

        My random pot of weeds is always a talking point in my garden.

        You should go to the party, Professor. One should never turn down an opportunity to go to a party, especially if Mr R is going!

      • 162 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 19:36

        A good conversation starter. I bet you appreciate it!

        Okay, then. Off I go. With a hat, sword-cane, and noodle sandwich.

      • 163 PorterGirl September 9, 2014 at 07:15

        That rather sounds like I need assistance with starting a conversation! Which is true, of course. And a pot of weeds is a great place to start.

        You are well prepared for the party, I see. Essential items for partying, I find. Mmm noodle sandwich sounds rather lovely.

      • 164 Professor VJ Duke September 9, 2014 at 14:57

        Oh! I didn’t mean it that way…well, I always need some sort of help. I always say the weirdest things.

        It is must be! I’ve never tried one, you know. Hey, that reminds me of the time you made that professorish dish.

      • 165 PorterGirl September 9, 2014 at 15:35

        Haha – I always find it good to have a starting point or I just talk about food or something very strange. Or rude. Everyone needs a pot of weeds!

        I did make the Professorish dish. Noodles, cherries and cashews! The cherry sauce was really nice, actually. Funny, I was thinking of having noodles this evening.

      • 166 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 14:58

        *laughing* Talking about rude things is always fun.

        That does sound really good! I hope you do–did. Noodles are awesome.

      • 167 PorterGirl September 10, 2014 at 15:38

        I can’t help but talk about rude things. But don’t worry, Professor, I won’t say anything rude on your blog.

        Myself, Head Porter and The Dean would all be delighted to attend a PL party! With or without noodles.

      • 168 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 18:04

        *laughing* Oh, it’s fine if you do. Some say the professor is a rude beast.

        *nods* We should do it then.

      • 169 PorterGirl September 10, 2014 at 18:40

        A rude beast! Indeed! Okay, well I might slip the odd rude thing in here and there. Nothing too rude, mind you.

        *fist pump* Let’s do it!

      • 170 Professor VJ Duke September 10, 2014 at 22:24

        *laughs* That’s perfect! (Can’t wait, actually.)

        *fist pump* Let’s!

      • 171 PorterGirl September 11, 2014 at 07:26

        Excellent on both counts!

      • 172 Professor VJ Duke September 11, 2014 at 15:44

        *nods happily*

  21. 173 L. Marie September 8, 2014 at 12:53

    I have to go with Schwarz’s proverb, though it looks as if his garden needs tending.
    Ha! Bud really zinged Mr. Ratherquite. What party are they attending by the way? And where are the ladies?
    I would love to visit the treasure falls, regardless of the giant hornets. Surely there is a way to avoid that obstacle.

    • 174 Professor VJ Duke September 8, 2014 at 13:25

      Yes. I do wonder if Schwarz believes that. I bet it’s his excuse. I mean, it’s not mine. But the professor’s is close. I say something like, “If the weeds want cleared out, I hope the plants choke them out.”

      Well, the ladies are there. And Parker’s girlfriend is getting ready. I think they’re actually going to a party at Dr. Zauberer’s castle, interestingly enough.

      Yes, bug spray. And leave the nests alone. It’s a dangerous hike, but you’d love it!
