The Slice Guess Who Moved In Down The Street From Pahndy Ray?

By The Spokesman-Review
 

Our new all-time favorite regionally-flavored moniker belongs to a woman named Cordy Lane.

Pet peeve: Glen Oberg wishes Spokane TV weathercasters wouldn’t pronounce the word “our” the exact same way they say “are.”

Slice answers: After we asked about discovering felines in bags, Shelly Coyle of Post Falls sent a fax. “Many years ago, we had a pair of Siamese cats that LOVED to get into bags. One evening after my brother and I were in bed, my father came across a grocery bag that we had been told to put away. Being displeased with our not following directions, my father gave the bag a good kick. With the kick, there was a loud ‘YOWL’ and our male cat flew out of the bag and across the living room…the cat didn’t get into any bags again.”

And Cathy Denham told about the time she and a friend were packing up after camping. In the process of rolling up the tent, they accidentally trapped her friend’s little dog inside. The surprised pooch was discovered unharmed before they headed home.

No Inland Northwest weekend is complete without: “A slow dance with a good woman.” - Glen Jones

Channel surfing in March: If you’ve seen 10,000 college basketball games, you’ve seen ‘em all.

But there are plenty of good movies on this month. The question Saturday night will be: Is “Help!” - on KSPS-TV - one of them? A debate rages. One faction insists that it’s great because it’s the Beatles. Case closed. But another view holds that even with the terrific songs, this quirky 1965 feature is unwatchable.

She’s not alone: “Caroline Levine’s biological clock is ticking loudly. She is 57 years old and has no grandchildren.” - from The Wall Street Journal

Men and housework: Cheney’s Greg Munoz said it’s not a matter of men feigning incompetence. “I believe what men are saying is that they just can’t do it to their spouse’s satisfaction. After a few accidental ‘tie-dye’ incidents…my wife won’t let me do laundry anymore.”

Today’s Slice question: Why doesn’t everyone plant lilacs?
