The Countryside and a belated Thursday Trivia!
Sorry for my absence, but nature called. Not the restroom, the coutnryside! I packed a couple of things and drove an hour outside of Reykjavik. I spend two lovely days there being
a) really cold,
b) sleeping in a bed that was two heads smaller than I,
c) bathing horses and
d) getting a stomach virus
So, don´t you say there is nothing of magnitude you can accomplish in two days!
But all in all, it was fun and I enjoyed giving those horses a good rub-down. Did you guys know that there is shampoo and conditioner for horses? No? Well, now you do and it even smells ok! On the picture you see Prins(the horse) and my sister. Yeah, we were not making a fashion-statement, that´s for sure:)
The horses were really messy and it took a long time just to clean 6 of them, nevermind the freezing cold! So, as you can see, after a decent shower all of them sported a bath-type fashion robe, to keep the heat inside and the cold out.
Small detail, meanwhile I was freezing cold, my clothes were wet and I am sure my hair was in disarray, but I did not dare to check. Nobody offered me a blanket!
But all work has to come to an end, as you can see in the picture I did survive and saw the evening sun painting the sky with unlimited colours, it seemed.
So, now for our Thursday Brain Teaser:
"His real first name was Joseph, but when he fell down a flight of stairs at the age of 6 months, Harry Houdini gave him what would become his famous nickname. By the time he was 3, he was part of his parents’ acrobat act. In silent films he honed his slapstick skills. His trademarks were an upturned hat and a deadpan expression. At the end of his career he appeared in Limelight with Charlie Chaplin and Beach Blanket Bingo with Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon."
If you think you got it, go to the comment section and HINT!!! at the answer, thereby leaving clues for your fellow quizzers while showing me brains!
