Mike, This one’s for you! 🍾
Good morning, everyone! Happy Sunday!
Where do I begin..? Plural, I had to write down. Once on paper, check. Velvet, check. Spooky, check. UNISEF, you know I’m saying UNICEF….(So then I’m thinking donations, so then I go to maybe I don’t give enough, so then I want to go check my tax returns….this Ladies and Gentlemen is the result of lack of sleep and AADD)! LOL. Back to the puzzle..So I think Fusion, Ef..something, I had to write this one down too. Ah, Infuse, check. Higher, a little tic, but check. And finally, Detach, check.
Now to the answer. I saw words that would fit the first answer word: Solved, Opened, Vetoed. Show of hands, how many of us were looking for that M to put Stamp somewhere in there? Just me? But then, there’s no A either. I thought from the initial read that the middle word would be His I wanted it to be His! But the only word that could have given me the I, was Infuse. So, of course, I go back and look at it…and OF COURSE, there’s UNICEF again. So now I’m convinced sleep really IS essential to good mental health. I see that I’m right with Infuse, so it’s not going to be His. (This throws off the whole path I was going down). So I have to rephrase, and it has to be The, or One. I go with The. The H’s and the V and all those Es were throwing my concentration off. The blurry eyes didn’t help! Seven minutes into staring at the letters, I decided to concentrate on the cartoon. And there it was. The carrier’s boss, I assume, has a gruff look on his face. And the clincher for me? His hand. He’s gesturing a Stop, or a No Way. And then, it hit me. I could have had a V8! No, really I could have had a V8 instead of the orange juice….Oh right, the puzzle…The main office won’t approve…the carrier was pushing his luck. Pushing the Envelope! It should have been such an easy solve, but I just couldn’t see it.
Todays puzzle SEALS it for me. No one welcomes Mike back more than I. (Ok, maybe some…HA)! The weather’s gotten better here, I hope everyone is safe from the storms. Wishing us all a blessed Sunday.
Until tomorrow….Oh no, wait… Thank you all, it’s been a pleasure! ❤️🙋🏻
