Big Flashing Billboard Notes

How many times have you left the house and been halfway to the office when you suddenly realised you forgot to de-bean the cat, wind the turbot, or retread the fridge, and all on the same day the cleaning lady's coming round!

Yes, you left yourself post-it notes, one on the fridge, and the others in different places, but you just didn't see them on your way out this morning.

What you need is a great big, flashing, neon sign displaying the words "RELEASE GORDON" (or whatever chore you are liable to otherwise forget) right by the door, in order to jog your memory just before leaving for work.

       Or put the post-it notes on the door. Either works.

       I would like to know more about this de-beaning of cats you speak of.   

       I'm very afraid <hides behind 2fries>

       I thought this was actually a billboard you'd see from the highway, halfway to the office, that would remind you to turn around.

       De-beaning, sometimes (more accurately) spelt as debeening is the existential process by which you remove something from the space-time continuum, causing it not to have become, i.e. It never will have been.   

       Debeaning the cat would likely be necessary after it has inadvertently alerted the neighbours to Gordon.   

       Oh!, must dash, I have a pigeon to obfuscate.

       reminiscent of "LA story".

       Oh, this is perfect for people who suffer from CRS!   

       (who's Gordon?)

       Mrs. Pine Takes a Trip   

       Oh no! Said Mr. Pine. The list is lost!!   

       Lets see. It said "feed the dog, feed the cat, feed the fish."   

       I did that, said Mr. pine and smiled.   

       Oh yes. And it said "Get lots of rest!".   

       After 1 week the lawn looked like this. The kitchen looked like this! The house looked like this!!
