I take it you didn't go swimming, huh? LOL
And I can see you've been outside goofing off instead of in the house working hard on the living room, tsk tsk. LOL
(can't say I blame ya!)

I didn't read 50's science fiction stories, soooo, not sure about the riddle!

I know, I know! But I don't want to spoil it for everyone who comes after me.;-) NICE snake.

threecollie said...

I am confused....that is not unusual, but still....and now I want a tootsie pop

The Troll said...

Surprise at the end? That's my pre-watch guess.

I am stuck on the tootsie pop..."A one...a two-oo, THREE!"

Susan said...

I'm with threecollie... now I want a tootsie pop.

I was halfway expecting an owl in the video because of the commercial with the owl crunching the tootsie roll pop after only 3 licks. (Remember that one?)

Laura,
Just as a point of clarification, I didn't read 50's scifi when they were current!
:)
Yes, I did goof off yesterday morning prepriming painting.

Vicki,
Good job. I hope it's what you think!
I'm betting on you.

3C,
And who doesn't? Sweet candy, chewy chocolate, a paper stick to chew on...they're confectionary masterpieces.

Troll,
Clever guess.

Swampangel,
They are distracting aren't they?

Susan,
I loved those commercials.

Floridacracker said...

Mel,
Are ya back?

ImagineMel said...

Yessiree. Got back Thursday. Ask your son to see his dolphin snow globe! ;)

Thunder Dave said...

Again, you crack me up!
You know I'd say you have too much time on your hands, but I don't want to discourage you from providing this excellent entertainment! ;-)

Thunder Dave said...

Hey man, I forgot to tell Katy sorry to hear about her friend's friend! That's a real Bummer!

Miz S said...

ARRGH! I have NO idea! You're making me crazy here! How come Vicki knows and I don't? Oh, right. That whole "smart" thing.

vicki said...

Just checking back to see how everyone else is progressing on the answer. (When, do tell, will you be posting the answer? I've been practicing the sincere tones of, "Right! I knew that!" for some hours now...

vicki said...

Miz M- It's because you're only looking on the surface. Usually, PF readers have more colorful answers...

Anonymous said...

Ditto on what Thunder said goes for me, too. But, you use it in a good fashion where to many people do the wrong things with their time. If you know what I mean. Up here, (up there in downtown KC that is) another shooting or robbery every day. Same story only the names have been changed. Keep up the good stuff, we all need it!

Miz S said...

I am going to church now to pray for the correct answer.

pablo said...

When you reveal the riddle, is it going to be some groaner like Burl Ives was?

Wren said...

I don't like it when I don't know the answer.

And if Vicki knows, I am SOOOOO not speaking to her.

Floridacracker said...

And now, my response to you all.


DRUM ROLL PLEASE .....

The answer is:

A SURPRISE ENDING!!

Your first Tootsie Pop okay?


Pablo,
I wouldn't dream of such a thing.

Vicki,
Didja get it?

Miz S,
You can't hide your smartness.

Wren,
My dear, your blog hates me. It will not let me comment ... I just wanted to let you know I am dropping by!!

Dave and Bro,
Everyone has the same 24 hours each day. How we use it is up to us.
This is not a rehearsal.
