  1. Good morning, Mike, good morning, Everyone. Easy, breezy. And we got DOUBLE as a word, and valiant in the dialogue! NET bad for a Saturday morning! Earl, notice both older men have paunches, like MOONBALLS, while the young man’s stomach is so FLAT? This is all Jeff’s FAULT, it had nothing to do with the farmers! LOL. Today’s the Preakness, The Run for The Black-Eyed Susans. Sue, TOSS at least a DEUCE on your favorite horse, you may get a Sweeeeeeeet RETURN! Hoping we all have a great day, and get to SCORE some POINTS, whatever our GAME may be. I’m off to soccer at TENNIS-h.

    • Your remarks on farmers were even more memorable to me. My wife always notes that one of her economics teachers asked his classes something to the effect of “Who are the only people who produce something out of basically nothing”, therefore the basis of the entire economy, and the answer was, of course, farmers.

  3. Good morning. It’s always a fun puzzle when you get the solution. The words were easy with visor taking an extra ten seconds. All the other words jumped right out. Now the cartoon didn’t give me any hints but in writing down the letters the first word and second words were evident. Being an old military man the last word had to follow. Looking back,those years were some good times. Leave out the wars and it’s not a bad life. Three square meals——what more can a guy ask for. Seeing other countries is a plus and you learn so much. Rather have a military man work for me than a civilian any day. It teachers leadership chain of command. That’s enough I starting to think like Angelia. Only good thought intended. Till tomorrow stay well.

      • Paul, Good afternoon. One can never go wrong with Bocce! And it IS a sport that lends itself to having the time for good conversation. But you’re wrong in calling it a game for “old”er folks…it might be a slower game, but it calls for precision and concentration…and a few glasses of red wine never hurt either! It’s a grand sport! Today’s puzzle? I think the cartoon gave a mighty hint…the word “Valiant”. Which a lot of military men don’t think of themselves as. I’m not sure when you served, but when I think of valor, I first think of Tom Brokaw’s, “The Greatest Generation”, and it says it all. I’ve read it 3 times, and cried each time.

  5. HI Mike et al. Read the cartoon sentence first & wrote β€œto serve” immediately while toying with the word β€œeager” in my mind until I saw PERKY and knew the first word was β€œproud.” All clue words came easily today.
    My 28 yr. old grandson, Jeremy, was playing bass guitar in a rock band in his early 20’s, but changed his mind, married his girlfriend, joined the Army, and left for basic training. After more training in Texas, his wife joined him for 2 years in Germany. His mother & 3 sisters visited him there and were thrilled that they also got to visit Paris & Rome. Jerry & I prefer to sleep in our own beds in this huge, beautiful house he built after retiring, so rather than go with them, we financed the trip for the youngest sister which all of them appreciated.
    Now Jeremy & wife live in Colorado. Jeremy is a combat medic and an EMT, going for paramedic. His wife is an RN in the base hospital, going for Nurse Practitioner. We are very proud of both of them.

  8. Steve, you should have said Mike, Angela, & Lelia because I sooo related to the Drabble comic today having about 4 shelves of my DVD cabinet full of VHS tapes that I can’t part with. One is of Jerry, daughter Joyce, and me whale watching in a big whale watching boat off Cape Cod. Joyce asked me to have it transferred to a DVD, which I did, and it wasn’t too horribly expensive and she said it turned out well with decent clarity. I need to get more of them done. And that’s not all. I still have a storage box of 8 track tapes. One is of the Osmonds singing One Bad Apple, which our little girls & I sang a million times in the cab of our truck all the way to Houston & back. I also certainly remember typewriter ribbons but don’t have any.
