Happy Friday everyone! Here we stand at the precipice of the weekend, and I can’t wait to board the plane and jet to some place warm. Before the fun begins, I have to conquer one last puzzle, so this is how it went. The first two clue words came instantly, with STIGMA causing me to stumble for a few seconds. After that, CANOPY came just as fast as the first two words and I arrived at the cartoon. I didn’t have a guess for the final solution (and didn’t feel like spending too much time on it either) so I wrote out all the clue letters. It was an instant solve after seeing MOON in the letter layout leaving a great pun to end the week. There weren’t any hidden details in the cartoon that I could find, but the black background really made the astronauts pop. The dialogue reminded me of my youth in the 80’s and everyone was talking about how flying cars would be everywhere but here we are and I haven’t seen one yet. Maybe by 2030 — or sooner.
This is my last post for a week and Angela from our forum has decided to take over the reigns in my absence. It’ll be fun to read someone else’s take on the puzzle and I wish her the best of luck. I’ll be thinking of everyone while I’m on the beach, toes deep in the warm sand and sipping umbrella drinks. See you all bright and early on May 1st!!! 😎✈️🏝☀️
