CARTOON ANSWER:

HE THANKED HIS MIME TEACHER, BUT WAS TOLD —

NTTNINDIETOMO = DON’T MENTION IT

Good Thursday morning, my friends.  COSMOS was the word that stumped me this morning but it was “mime” own fault!  I wasn’t able to get the word right off the bat so I tried to memorize the letters and think about it during my morning routine.  When nothing came to mind, I went back and looked at the word again.  I memorized two C’s instead of two S’s — rookie mistake!  Once I figured it out I was determined to finish the puzzle swiftly.  DON’T was my guess for the contraction so I penciled it in.  ME seemed like a good choice for the two letter word but I couldn’t figure out a 7-letter word with the leftovers.  I erased ME and added it to the front of my letters.  After doing that,  MENTION hit me like a sack of potatoes and IT was left for the finish.  Jeff did a great job with the mimes but it wasn’t until after the puzzle was completed that I was able to realize just how brilliant an illustration it really was.  Given my passion for comic books where the illustrations are just as powerful as the words, I felt silly not being able to figure out the final answer based on their body language alone.  Overall, it felt great having a challenge after a relatively easy week of puzzles.  Another snow storm brings another school delay.  It sure looks beautiful until you have to shovel!  Have a terrfic day and I’ll see you tomorrow.  😀

  1. Today’s puzzle I like to call a Goldilocks puzzle. Not too hard and not too soft, just right! CWs were not a snap but came with a little effort and the answer fell in place and gave me a smile. I am done talking!!

  2. Good morning. Got the words in under a minute but the cartoon was another story. After ten minutes I took the easy way out and looked for your answer. Oh well tomorrow begins anew. Stay well.

  3. This one was easy for me today. Like Mike, my first inclination was don’t and me. Brought it together in 1:10.

    Was finally able to take the time yesterday to finish the repair on our leaking kitchen drain line. All buttoned up – no leaks and no plumber!

  4. Good morning! First 3 words easy, worked a while on COSMOS. Knew the answer but putting a little dot above each letter as you showed in your pic, I had no “E.” My newspaper version is tiny; found my E circled in DIGEST.
    I did have a delicious burger yesterday at … ta daaa … Freddy’s Steakburgers that Harry told you about. Also good fries and frozen custard.
    Mike, thank you for the beautiful snow picture today. Also, after seeing your new site color for a while now, it’s not black & white as I first thought. It’s a very handsome deep charcoal gray and the white words show up well. I like it. Enjoy your day and stay well & warm and have fun.

    • I looked for a Freddy’s Steakburger restaurant near me, however; they haven’t hit the east coast yet. Thank you for the kind words about my background choice. I figured it was a nice change of pace and maybe I’ll change it to match the season. The one I picked was dark and cold and it reminded me of winter so I’ll warm it up a bit for spring. Enjoy your day! 😀
