  1. Good morning, Mike, good morning, Everyone See here’s the thing. I’ve been singing, 🎢”ConGRADulations”🎢 to the kids for years, to the tune of, of course..Carly Simon’s 🎢”ANTICIPATION”🎢. (And spelling it just like this in the Memo line of all those checks)! LOL…So this got me just as much as I got it! Ah, all the baby birds leaving the nest! And does our teen know her Dad? PUNny? I’m sure being around Dave and Jeff must be a guaranteed laugh a minute. Today’s words: easy, breezy, 1-4! Did we see Giant just recently? Kudos..HA..tattooed on my wrist. Chance and Revolt, not new, but uniquely scrambled anew. Great collection of letters for the solve! And this endearing cartoon. The four blonde girls, clad in their purple gowns? Our twin runway models from a few months back? Remember, the “Indifferent” twosome? And of course, Jeff’s progeny, which or both, whatever..I’m a Jumble enthusiast with a good memory, not a stalker! Off to college! BFFs! The eye candy for me? The Fancy Footwear! I’m such a sucker for a good pair of shoes! Pink ankle ties, purple ankle straps, purple flats and red and black sneakers! Viva la difference! All so touching and heart warming. Kudos, Jeff….(🎢”Oops, I did it again..”🎢) Proud Dad, all puns aside! Wishing us all some Pomp in our Circumstance! Great day, everyone! πŸŽ“πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Hi Rita. No there’s 4. The girl farthest left has a cell phone in her left hand, so her diploma’s in her right, held down low. The 2 middle girls are each holding it in their left hands. The girl at the right of the picture is also holding it in her right hand. Going by the noses, I’m thinking the friends of Jeff’s daughters, the twins, are girls 2 & 3 in the picture. Wishing you a great weekend also! πŸŽ“πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. A easy solve and very timely puzzle for me today. My grandson graduated from eighth grade last night. So congratulations to my dear Ryan. You’re a bright star in the family constellation. Have a happy weekend everyone.

  3. Hi all – Guessed the “answer” right away, and I needed it to work backwards to get the first letter of KUDOS. Otherwise I was stuck thinking it was DUSK-O, that time right after 🎡”DAY-O, Day-a-a-O”🎡 Often trip up on import words like KOWTOW or KHAKI.

    Those girls, Oy! Obviously not the rock group “4 Non Blondes”! I love that 3 have fancy strappy heels, but one went with the ever-appropriate go-to choice of Chuck Taylor Converse All-Stars. You go, girl!
    In my paper it looks even better because her shoes are black and white (and the dresses are all Olive Drab)

    And Jeff’s daughter? “Is it ‘punny’, dad?”. DUH! Of COURSE it’s punny. I hope she’s not one of those people who hates puns, or she’ll run off to college tomorrow!

    Have a great weekend!

    • Steve-O….Very good one, Day to Dusk-O! KUDOS!! But see, if you read my posts a little closer, instead of reading “between the lines” so much, you’d have gotten Kudos in a NY minute! I come in with Kudos, I’m all over the board with Kudos, I’m telling myself Dave thought of me when he used the word Kudos! (That’s MY story, and I’m sticking with it)! And Jeff’s daughter? Let’s be real here, I’m sure a big chunk of that PUNny Money will be funding that college education! More Kudos! My Father was an extraordinary wit…πŸ’” all it got me was a seat on the ‘Luigi Board’! πŸ˜‚ ( But I Thank you, Papa)! (Jeff, this is all just material; with all due respect)! So,you prob have a spring in your step today, the Giants loomed wayyyy large last night. KUDOS! (And I’m one step ahead of you…don’t even try anything with the NY minute! We all know you’re on the Left side)! Tongue in cheek, inflection not withstanding, I’ve stated my case. And, it’s all good! πŸ˜‚β€οΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Hi Earl. As always, great post. You have a knack of creating great sentences with the given words each day! Kudos! (I can’t help it…until I find a better word)! The email went out late today to begin with. Mike and I were playing possum. And it’s him, Steve and I overloading with comments that may be causing the traffic flow problem. I “hear” all the those agreeing! Mea culpa! I’m having a delay with the emails also. Hope it improves. I’ll do my part by keeping my hands in my pockets until later today.

  5. Hi all! My favorite clue word today is KUDOS; I use it a lot and have said it to Mike several times about his superb writing & writing skills. Hardest word for me today was KUDOS!?! Looking at my notes, I self jumbled it 14 times before getting it. The cartoon picture is precious with his adoring daughter asking her proud dad if the word would be a pun, her twin friends, and one more graduating friend. We have had a lot of graduations, so the answer was easy for me. First one was 52 years ago when our daughter’s preschool had a cap & gown graduation for the kiddies. Last one was last year when daughter who graduated from Northern Arizona U. in Hotel Restaurant Management but got married & had 4 children whom she managed rather than a hotel, went back to NAU & graduated in Education & is now in her first year of teaching third grade.
    Enjoy the rest of your day!

  6. Hi Mike! Thanks for your clarification of sauce vs. gravy. I have never called my spaghetti sauce β€œgravy.” Thanks for offering your recipe because it’s probably tastier than mine, but Jerry likes mine so I’ll just stick with it. Also, I had never heard of steak tips until you said it because out here, even if they are pieces of a very fine steak, we call them beef tips. I love learning new things on your site. Thanks.

  7. Steve, thanks for complimenting my day-late comment β€œlox at the Keys.” I have never been able to quickly think of a clever response. I had forgotten what a Delft tile was because we never got around to purchasing one of the beautiful things but Googled & recognized them as 3 tiles Jerry’s mom had on her kitchen wall.
    I have heard you speak of Pashmina stew & heard Angela beg you to cease & desist. Then you added guinea pig, liver, & gizzards to your funny menu. While trying to think of a comparison that shows why Angela has to use the word Pashminas, I thought of one but wondered if it would add another entrΓ©e to our menu but have decided to tell it to you anyway. Referring to Angela’s beautiful Pashminas as shawls would be like calling a Lamborghini a car. I am thinking that your quick, clever brain will add Rack of Lamborghini to our menu. LOL

    • Lelia – a couple of things:
      You should ask Josh and his dad if they ever considered the Stevie Nicks song, “Edge of Seventeen” – seems appropriate in his case, although he might not appreciate some of the lyrics – “He was no more than a baby then.”

      You may have heard a few Queen songs without realizing it – “We Are the Champions” and “We Will Rock You” played at many sporting events, and “Another One Bites The Dust”. Another interesting tidbit is that their lead guitarist, Brian May, is a CBE and an internationally recognized astrophysicist. He has an asteroid named after him, and was on the New Horizons science team responsible for the fly-by of Pluto last year.

      Thanks for the good wishes, all is well.

    • Lelia, Angela – Well if you want an Italian car story —
      During her many previous lives before me, my wife has been rich, destitute, and in between (and often not in the order you might expect.) During one of her rich phases (not now), she owned a Lancia Flavia which, she informs me, had a reputation for being equally as unpredictable and temperamental as Italian women!

  8. Steve, you were right on the money when you said the definition of Fiat is, β€œFix it again, Tony.” Our younger daughter, Diane, now with 2 grown children and 2 almost grown, drove a Fiat Spider for a while in High School and that thing was in the shop most of the time! When she was 15 she wanted to be COOL so told me that she would not be seen driving a Dodge Dart like her sister or my ancient Chevy with the big wings in the back (a ’56 I think), so she got a job at Arby’s fast food place & earned enough money added to what we would have spent on a sensible car for her and found a red Fiat Spider which she just loved. Result of that? She frequently had to drive my ancient Chevy to school because her Fiat was in the shop and on those days I walked 6 blocks to my school to teach. She got rid of it after a year or so, weary of it being as temperamental as your wife’s Italian luxury car.
    I LOVE We Are the Champions & used to sing it a lot and We Will Rock You but didn’t realize they were Queen songs. Talk about backgrounds of people in show business. A guy on America’s Got Talent last year who was a circus performer and did a static trapeze act with a pretty little partner had an impressive past of earning his PhD in medicinal chemistry and doing a lot of other stuff. And here we think these people are just another pretty face. LOL
    Arm loads of well wishes!!

    • Maybe so, or he exceeded his text limit last night. Hey good to hear from you, but I only have a minute too. I’m going to help my wife get some dinner (she actually has an appetite, which is a good and healthy thing for her, so I want to encourage it), and then I’m going to finish up the hockey game. If I don’t make it back, have a good night! (Did you see all the ball games that had 10 runs today? Weird).
