While whiling away another half of an hour engaged in one of our favorite family activities, I was impressed enough with Laura’s answer to one of the clues that I once again took a picture of our T.V. screen so that I could brag about it. I mean, blog about it, of course.


“Gilligan’s Island,” Laura answered to the clue above. She offered her reasoning: “Skipper calls Gilligan his little buddy. I saw the words ‘buddies’ and ‘island.’ I thought that ‘Gilligan’s Island’ could be the answer.”

Not only is Laura’s logic sound, but I think she’s right! I’ve managed to convince myself that I remember an episode in which the seven stranded castaways were laughing at the beards of the local chieftains from a neighboring island whose attention had been attracted by Mrs. Howell’s interest in drums just before Gilligan’s mouth became a radio and the Professor tried to cure Skipper’s amnesia with hypnosis.

  1. We have some catching up to do as Henry and I are still on the episodes that are in black and white. Let’s sing it all together now…
    Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
    a tale of a fateful trip.
    That started from this tropic port,
    aboard this tiny ship.
    The mate was a mighty sailin’ man,
    the skipper brave and sure.
    Five passengers set sail that day,
    for a three hour tour, a three hour tour……… Henry makes thunder sounds here…
    The weather started getting rough,
    the tiny ship was tossed.
    If not for the courage of the fearless crew,
    the Minnow would be lost; the Minnow would be lost.
    The ship took ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle,
    with Gilligan, the Skipper too,
    the Millionaire, and his Wife,
    the Movie Star, AND THE REST are
    here on Gilligan’s Isle.

    Love it.
    Laura YOU ROCK!
