WHO WOULD BE GETTING CREDIT FOR FINDING THE FOSSILIZED DINOSAUR SKELETON WAS A :

CNOFNOENONBOTITE:  BONE OF CONTENTION

 

MIKE, THIS ONE’S FOR YOU…. ⛏

Good morning, Everyone.

As a dedicated logophile, I really DIG today’s words, no BONES about it. Common, everyday words, that except for Bunion, I myself have used just this past week alone. But Dave’s anagram prowess took these everyday words and turned them into extremely INTEResting choices. Personally, I never quite “got” archeologists;  choosing a career that could leave them in RUINS. Working in the dirt and the heat, and knowing as the day went on, that it would get IAN HODDER.  I dated one once. Nice enough guy, but obsessively jealous. Constantly DIGGING UP THE PAST. Eventually, I just threw in the TROWEL. Ah, but I DIGress. Our words: I found them easy breezy, with the slightest tic at Offend. It just looked wrong. Glancing at the cartoon, I already had the answer, so I looked for my B. Getting it from Bounty sealed the deal. I think the phrase a “Bone of Contention” may be one of those that you’re either familiar with or not. It’s not all that common, so it may not be all that HUMERUS.

Wishing Everyone a day where we can all get ARCHAIC and eat it too! ⛏🙋🏻

POST SCRIPT:  I’m posting this later today for two reasons. I went to Mass first, and secondly I labored over this post. Mike and I agreed last night that some mention needed to be made about the terror spree in the UK. Two attacks within eight days…the mind reels in disbelief. He had enough faith in me to say that he knew I’d think of something. So, I sat here for way too long trying to come up with a witty post all the while weighed down with the sadness of recent events. I wasn’t even going to try and work it into the post. So, I did “my job”, the old “The Show Must Go On”. But, I’m so tired of the heartache. 💔 All I can say is, whatever God we pray to, whatever higher power we put our belief in, whatever guides our lives, He, She, It’s desperately needed right now.  🙏🏻

  1. “Easy like Sunday morning” for a change. I just had to back into offend and cranky. Bunions in my family but not me, perhaps because I like to wear comfortable shoes. Another great post today, Angela.

    • Good morning, 🎶Sweet Caroline🎶. Once again, thank you! ❤️ Yes, 🎶 Easy like Sunday morning🎶 Good one. I like comfortable shoes too, but once in a while I forgo the comfort for the fashion! Rare, and for short periods of time, but guilty! Shoes are my downfall! Thankfully I’ve been lucky enough to avoid the bunions too! Hope you have a great day! 🌞🙋🏻

  2. Forgot to add: For those of you who use the on line version of Jumble, both websites are of no help today. The black and white version is last week’s puzzle, and the colorized one gives only the first two words. I’ll give you the cartoon details: The female archeologist in the foreground arguing with the male, is holding a trowel in one hand, a pick in the other, and as always, is blond and dressed in purple. There are two other archeologists working in the box grid seemingly aware of and surprised by the arguing going on between the two site directors. One of them is shown dusting off the dinosaurs head. To the right of the picture, a photographer is filming. In the background is the encampment, showing two tents and a jeep. Hope this helps 🙋🏻

  3. I’ll forgoe any attempt to use today’s clue words to react to last night’s horror in the UK. Yesterday the word “revolt” was a clue word–I am revolted that innocents have to suffer because of the actions/beliefs of others. Tomorrow perhaps my humor will be more evident.

  4. Good morning, Earl. You came to mind this morning. I thought I remembered you saying that you didn’t get a paper on Sunday’s, and with today’s mishaps on both on-line versions, I figured you’d be without the puzzle. And it is a good one. Revolting just about sums it up. 💔 Yes, here’s to Tomorrow. Hope you’re enjoying your day. It’s beautiful downstate. 🌞🙋🏻

  5. Easy puzzle. The horror in Britain is unfathomable. Solutions seem remote.

    Note: Mike, for the last several days I have been getting redirects from this blog to spam/phishing sites when using my iPhone. This has NEVER happened on my phone on any other site. It started after the change to the new template was made. Anyone else experiencing this?

      • That’s VERY generous of you Steve, but I couldn’t. Angela offered to help out as well, but again, I just wouldn’t feel right. Thanks for the offer and if the ads and pop-ups don’t simmer down, I’ll revert back to the original format to see if that helps. Have a great day my friend!

      • Oh I know, and it’s EXTREMELY generous, but I’d rather go back to the old look and try that first. At least we’re all not robots or monsters anymore, lol!!! 😉

      • Hi Mike – I thought you might say that; you know I’m qualified to understand New England Yankee. But allow me to bore you with a story first. I emphasize here that I don’t mean to pressure people; I hate that. This is YOUR blog and YOUR decision, and I want you to do what makes YOU comfortable above all. This is not about me, as you once wisely said.

        So anyway. I worked for over 20 years with one of the nicest guys I ever met. He happened to be black, and had a young son who idolized Dave Stewart of the A’s. I had a strip of tickets to the World Series, I think it was 1989. I couldn’t go to all of them, so I offered him my Game One tickets at face value, which he accepted.

        Now I watched that game on TV, and I don’t remember a single thing about it, except that Dave Stewart won. But the look on my friend’s face when he realized he was going to be able to tell his son that he was taking him to see Dave Stewart in the World Series at the Coliseum — THAT, I will remember till the day I die.

        That’s kind of how I feel about this offer. Your money is better spent on your young family. I’m an old retired guy with no family and enough for most anything I want. I wouldn’t even notice the bill, but I would be happy to do a favor for the people who have been so nice to me since I started posting last March. I could have spent it on a couple of comedy show tickets, and not gotten a hundredth the laughs I have gotten from you guys.

        That’s the last I’ll mention this. Again, I want you to make the decision that YOU are comfortable with. But if you change your mind, consider this a standing offer, still open anytime.
        Just don’t wait too long! I don’t know how much longer I’m going to be around 🙂
        I’m 69 now, and my brother didn’t quite make it to 70 … so I’m following the advice of my cool grandfather – I’m not even buying green bananas, starting to read serialized stories in magazines, or buying suits with 2 pairs of pants!

        Cheers, my friend.

      • That’s a very nice story Steve and I’ve now read it three times to ensure that I picked up on all of the details. You’re correct in your understanding of New England Yankees as we’re always looking to bargain and get something for the best price — for sure! I’ve been tempted to pull the trigger and absorb all of the cost myself quite a few times, but the benefits just didn’t add up for the price. I even started looking online for coupon codes but wasn’t able to find any that would work. I sent Angela an email in private asking her for her thoughts about possibly adding a donation jar on the site where people could “tip” via PayPal to cover the cost. After looking into it, I realized that I couldn’t add one without first purchasing the upgrade (they always get ya somehow) and that anyone who sent me a small (or in your case a VERY GENEROUS donation) would be able to see my full name including my address which was very scary and I shut the idea down all together. If you can think of another way, I’m all ears and open to suggestions. Thanks again for your generosity and I’m so sorry for the headache that a few changes that were meant to enhance user satisfaction caused.

      • No need to feel sorry at all Mike! For all I know, these pop-ups could have happened in the old format as well. And your privacy concerns are WELL founded; I wouldn’t want that either.
        The only thing I can think of is just to send you some cash via PayPal – I’ve never done it, but it seems to want email address, mobile number or name. If this is getting too complicated we can drop it, but – do you have my email address from the website info? Do you have a Paypal account?

      • I have a PayPal account and your email address, but when you send money it shows the recipients full name and address — there is no way around that. I’ll just let it be for now and thanks again for going that extra step by offering as it really means a lot to me. Who knows, maybe one day you’ll log on and I’ll have finally gone premium. 🙂

      • Agreed, that’s wise. Too bad they don’t have an anonymous option. We’ll just drop it for now, but it’s still a standing offer.

    • Good morning, John. Mike probably won’t log on here today, he usually takes Sunday off. He mentioned you Friday in regards to the Mariners, and said that he hadn’t seen you here. I realize that I mistakenly told him you were on a cruise. It was Ron, not you. Sorry about that. There have been a few blips in the blog, but Mike and I discussed it may be due to all the late night baseball posting we do. I’ve seen pop up ads that never were before,and you’re right, they started after the format change. Not many people post on Sunday, but hopefully others will comment. Sadly, Britain is under siege and it’s sad beyond reason.

      • No cruises, but I have been traveling a bit recently. Despite an unprecedented number of injuries, the Mariners are hanging in there. The division looks to be out of reach, but the entire AL is still in the hunt for a wildcard spot!

The DL now stands for ..”Don’t Look”…another one bites the dust. We’re on the hunt for a bullpen…I’ve started a Novena. Hope you’re enjoying your day! ⚾️🙋🏻

  8. Though the A’s are in last place in the AL, they are only 5.5 games from the 2nd wildcard, Steve. Anything can happen in this crazy season! Looking for the M’s to get back to .500 before the break! When I was in school at Berkeley in the 80’s used to catch many day games in the bleachers before Al Davis had them condemned for football. Sure hope that Oakland gets a decent ballpark, soon!

    • Now that’s optimism! First time I’ve ever heard the 2nd wild card mentioned in June, and it’s only the 4th. We’re promised a decision on a ballpark site by the end of the year, and this time it’s finally believable. I think there’s light at the end of the tunnel finally.

    • I thought the Coliseum was the prettiest park in baseball then, and I’ve been to Fenway. Remember the iceplant by the bleachers that would bloom purple in the spring? I had partial season tickets for about 20 Wednesday day games throughout 1988, 1989, and 1990, which gave us the right to buy tickets to playoffs and World Series. Good timing!

  10. Hi Steve! Loved Foxtrot today! I’m sure you knew what Jason said because you knew how to use two VCR’s to make your tape delay which amazed me. My electronic knowledge level is in the Dinosaur age.
    A minute ago I tried what you mentioned and entered our Jumble site with Safari and there were two ads. Then I exited and entered using Google Chrome. Two ads still there. However, I might not have the latest version of Google Chrome. I know nothing.
    Today on the front of the section of the paper where I find my Jumble puzzle was an article entitled “Classic rockers roll through Phoenix in June.” There were more than two dozen mentioned but the first 3 were ones we have talked about recently; Queen, Boston, and Chicago & the Doobie Brothers. I’ll tell younger daughter about Queen and give the whole article to Josh.
    Arm loads of warm wishes from two to two, us to you!!

    • Hi Lelia – no, you’re ok, it turned out not to be a Safari vs Chrome thing and it sounds like you’re up to date.
      Speaking of dinosaurs as you were, and the Jumble today did, the only problem with Classic rock acts is that you have to check the line-ups, because they may have only a few, one, or even none of the original members.
      I have a followup joke, but I’ll save it till tomorrow.
      Stay cool in the blast-furnace down there, hugs to you and Jerry!
