Strange events at ITV

C E Ayr supplied this weeks prompt,

Should she high tail it to gay Paris’y, that was the question that Julie asked Dusty Bin, Ted Rogers smiled and gave himself permission to play along. Tonight’s show was beginning to look as if it was going to be a cracker. Julie had been slotted into the show at the last minute, after the intended couple failed to arrive. Julie and Derek had caught the production teams attention after a mouse had appeared out of Julie dress. Well you could hardly ignore such a event could you thought Ted. Here we go folks 3-2-1 …why Paris Julie? …Why the mouse say’s it’s splendiferous.

Footnote: Dusty Bin was the Booby prize is a long running ITV quiz show called 3-2-1. The show was popular with the viewing public, and I thought that in this time of lockdown I might watch more fun based tv shows like 3-2-1.

yep it’s me

    A bit of nostalgia on TV definitely helps during lockdown.

      I hope so Iain,

    A mouse? eek!

    Good to watch mindless feel good stuff during these times.

    1. Michael Humphris

      A balanced diet of entertainment perhaps in which mice play their part.

    Manifesting mice! I don’t remember that particular show

    1. Michael Humphris

      I can understand that, mice are such little characters.

    At times like this I am glad I have no TV.
    Fun story, Michael

    1. Michael Humphris

      No TV, I am impressed,

  5. Sandra

    I remember that show. Not with much pleasure, I must admit. 🙂

    1. Michael Humphris

      Sorry to remind you of it Sandra. Unfortunately my creative muse appears to be in lockdown at the moment.

  6. Varad

    The more I get to be at home, the less I feel like watching TV. I like quiz shows, but haven’t heard about this one.

    1. Michael Humphris

      I can understand that Varad, unfortunately my creative muse has been asleep recently

    Dear Michael,

    Sounds like a few game shows over here. I do like the name Dusty Bin for a booby prize. 😉



    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you for commenting Rochelle, unfortunately the creative side of my writing muse seems to be asleep at the the moment.

    Anything to take a person’s mind off the circus of “it.” Funny quiz shows would be one way.

    1. Michael Humphris

      I am not a great fan of the TV, but unfortunately the creative side of my writing muse seems to be asleep at the moment.

      1. msjadeli

        I hear you. I feel a definite crimp in mine also.

    I never did get the 3-2-1 finger motions quite right…

    1. Michael Humphris

      Me neither, I am not a great fan of game shows, but unfortunately my creative writing muse is asleep at the present time.

    Never heard of that show. Was it a sort of reality show? Anyway, a fun piece this week, and I’ll be wondering for a bit how on earth a mouse got into Julie’s dress in the first place 🙂

    1. Michael Humphris

      Do not worry about the show… Julie was a comic and a magician with a hidden pocket

  11. Lynn Love

    I remember 321, Dusty and Ted very well – those ‘clues’ were ridiculously convoluted and tenuous and all for a prize most big shows wouldn’t even consider giving away now. Nice walk down memory lane

    1. Michael Humphris

      Memory lane was all I had this week as my writing muse is asleep at present.

  12. Alicia Jamtaas

    I think my writing muse might be napping with yours. Still this was a fun story.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you Alicia. Napping is a great way of putting it. I have turned the alarm up. I guess the muse need to rest before it can return invigorated.

  13. Brenda's Thoughts

    Cute story, cute dog, and good idea to watch more fun TV! Lovely, Michael.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you Brenda,

    And the mouse wasn’t wrong. Thanks for reminding me of 3,2,1

    1. Michael Humphris

      I have been to France, but sadly I have never seen Paris.

      1. michaelwynnauthor

        That is a shame. I haven’t been for a long time and people are saying it’s changed a lot and not always for the better.

        1. Michael Humphris

          I expect that it will have changed a lot, everything has. Even London is very different from how I knew it in the 1960s. At this moment I like three city’s… New York…Berlin… York . However over the years I have found many cities including Manchester have fascinated me.

          I guess that how you experience a city or town depends upon how it treats you. Myself having a very long standing interest in buildings and transport, most places grab my attention.
