Thank you @Bart Ell, @juan, @anniem, @PolkaDot, @Mr Apnea, @PB and @FISH, for playing the What Will Mrs. Thompson Say? game.

Mrs. Thompson feels that the little girl is wearing shoes that are too short and too wide.  A competent shoe salesman can find longer and narrower shoes.

Mrs. Thompson believes that the cigar chomping invalid should do easy chores around the house, but not until a doctor is consulted to see if Hubby has the strength to do them.

Sorry, but everyone missed this one.  The next Mrs. T. quiz will be on Double Points Friday so that means every correct answer will land you a staggering 40 points.

This is the BEST game!!!

John and Sam soon realize that practicing the cowboy tango outdoors can lead to sprained ankles.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Thanks, Annie.  Yes, I like it when the points get doubled.  Makes me feel like Howie Mandel on Deal Or No Deal.

You got peanut butter in my chocolate! Whoa! This is delicious!
R-L.....R.....L-R
FDP ' SSP ' RDP....' ' - repeat other side.

The key is the last (5th) punch of the combination, which is the right fist: R. This fist comes around from the side, and the tendency is to clip more of the side panel of the bag if you don't get it all the way behind.

I like it when my points are high and when they are lower than low. FUN!

 What Will Mrs. Thompson Say?

  Your beliefs are certainly ideal, but
hardly practical in the first instance.
It is impossible to lay aside the law
of human nature.  Woman's (blank) in
life is primarily to bring (blank) into
the world.  Often it is not possible or
advisable for her to fulfill her (blank).
Usually it is not possible for a mother
to earn a livelihood.  Because of this,
man was born with a protecting and
providing (blank).  He longs for a
home, but he claims for himself the
privilege of (blanking) the woman for
that home.  Women are born with a
(blank) which attracts men without any
effort on the woman's part.  I believe
you will admit that any woman born
without (blank) would gain little
by asking a man for his company.  The
wise woman who wants popularity
makes a study of (blank) and the
art of (blank).  In the end she gains
more than by declaring openly her
want of (blank) attention.
  As for a woman's pay, I believe she
should be paid for the work she does
and the fact that she is a woman
should not be considered.  There are
arguments against this, however.  It
does not seem (blank) for a woman who
needs money for her own needs only
to earn as much as a man with a
(blank).


There are twelve blanks in this quiz.  Each correctly filled in blank will be worth 40 points.  This is a great opportunity to fill up on points as the month of May comes to a rapid conclusion.  Good luck!

Great grandma! Is that you?🐱
