Hi

Someone says: I'd like to thank Jerry for teaching me what the whole equation was, Mr X, Y and Z for your ears, eyes and brains and the Mayor and his Missus for.........

--- I checked what "equation" means, but maybe here it has some figurative meaning?

---- "ears, eyes and brains" - does it just mean thank you for your attention?

--- I know that "missus" can mean "wife", so maybe "mayor" means "husband"? I know there can be a mayor of the city, but I'm not sure if this is the case here?

thanks

Hi,
Someone says: I'd like to thank Jerry for teaching me what the whole equation was, Mr X, Y and Z for your ears, eyes and brains and the Mayor and his Missus for..

--- I checked what "equation" means, but maybe here it has some figurative meaning? We don'tknow without more context.

-- "ears, eyes and brains" - does it just mean thank you for your attention? Sounds like it. And for using your intelligence.

'Their' is almost certainly more apt than 'your'.

--- I know that "missus" can mean "wife", so maybe "mayor" means "husband"? I know there can be a mayor of the city, but I'm not sure if this is the case here? No, a mayor is a mayor.

And definitely don't say 'his Missus', say 'his wife'.

Best wishes, Clive

Hi Clive

A musician is thanking his manager and says: Thank you for teaching me what the whole equation was.

That's all I have.
