Good Morning, Everyone!              🇺🇸 HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY 🇺🇸

🎶God Bless AMERICA, land that I love, stand beside her and guide her through the night with the light from above…From the mountains, to the prairies, to the oceans white with foam...God Bless AMERICA, my home sweet home, God Bless AMERICA, my home sweet home….🎶

🇺🇸 To gather with our families, our friends are welcome too,
To celebrate the Land we love with grills and barbecues…
The ELDEST joins the little ones, we’ll need that extra CHAIR
No time to think of FRUGAL, there’ll be lots of food and beer.
Get the BROOM and sweep the patio, and hang some colored lights,
This gathering should easily go far into the night…
Get together folks and come to offer what it is you’ve brought,
The Birthday of America…and all our friends CAME “FOURTH” 🇺🇸

With all of us hopefully enjoying some time of leisure with family and friends, I wish you all a safe, HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY…
…And to everyone out there named “Buzz“…Jeff labeled that little can of soda just for you! Have a great day, Everyone. Fly our FLAG and be proud!

GOD BLESS AMERICA! Today and every day! 🇺🇸🙋🏻

  1. The ELDEST cleaner, who was very FRUGAL, never threw away a broken CHAIR or BROOM handle.
    The last clue word—ELDEST—slowed me down this AM. Should not have, since EST is common in English words. The solution? No problem on this national holiday and a clever play on the words forth and FOURTH.
    Perhaps the best part of any NY Yankees game is the seventh inning, when they play “God Bless America” sung by Kate Smith. A most appropriate song choice Angela, thanks.
    Thanks also for pointing out to this BUZZ the soda can with that label–I missed it and I am always in awe of your memory for such details. And of course the poem was perfectly patriotic.
    Have a safe and sane Fourth of July and if you get a chance to do something to show your love and pride in our nation, don’t hesitate.

  2. Yes, Buzz, of course I remembered! (I’ve often been accused of remembering TOO many things! LOL). Good Holiday Morning, Sir. Happy you enjoyed the homage and the Shout Out…Great whimsical sentence, you never fail to tickle me early in the morning…Kudos 👏🏻. Thanks for the Shout Out and the Poem Nom..Too tired today (alliteration in answer to your “poem was perfectly patriotic”) 😉 to get all PUNny, and besides, it’s a day for relaxation and reflection. And of course..Cooking! And I’m with you…That 7th inning stretch at Yankee Stadium never fails to get me, I choke up every single time. So, here’s to God continuing to Bless America, 🍷I wish you too a safe and Happy 4th. Celebrate and Enjoy! 🇺🇸🙋🏻


  3. ‘Eldest’ was a stumper,but given that word,and the first solution word ‘came’,’fourth’ followed quickly.Have a safe and sane 4th of July.

    • Good Morning, Professor. I swore to myself that I’d take the day off, but with both you and Earl, and 4 others outside of here mentioning ELDEST to me, I went searching. And I don’t see it. Which means we may have a new word today. And figuring in for a penny, in for a pound, I searched for the others also. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find any of today’s words except FRUGAL, which we had this past Halloween. There’s no record of CHAIR or BROOM. Could this be possible, though? Simple, everyday words that they are? And I forgot to mention y’day, but both of Monday’s six letter words COLDER and MOMENT “are” new words also. So this may very well be a record breaking week for Jumble Solvers…Today’s answer though…another gift. Easy, breezy…I also see that both you and Earl added a SANE on to your Holiday greetings…Either you’re both going for alliteration…or you guys may know something! 😉 Either way, I wish you and yours, the Happiest of Independence Days! Enjoy, Chuck! 🇺🇸🙋🏻


  4. Good morning and Happy Independence Day to all. Perfect choice for a perfect holiday Angela. You did a bang up job from beginning to the end as well as Earl. Agree that Eldest was the hardest of all the words followed by Frugal. The cartoon answer was a pleasure to get. Thought it was rather cute. Have a great day everyone and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Et tu, ELDEST? LOL..I just didn’t SEE 😉 it….Thanks so much for the Shout Out, you’re the best. You caught me wrestling with artichokes…I swore I wasn’t doing all this cooking again, either, but you know how it is…”Just when I thought I was out…they pull me back in…”! 😂😂 But I was started by 5, so I’m almost home FREE! And yes, it is a very cute puzzle, I like the camaraderie…Have a great 4th, Bud. Safe and Happy! Ciao, Bello! 🇺🇸🙋🏻


  5. Eldest gets my vote as the most difficult word of the day. Had everything figured out including the cartoon before I solved that one. Hope all of you have a very happy Fourth!!

    • Hi Betty.. It looks like the runway hit! Safe and Happy 4th to you and yours! Ciao, 🇺🇸🙋🏻


  6. Hi all – Same as everyone else, FRUGAL took an extra look, and several looks until I thought to put EST at the end for ELDEST.

    If that can says “Buzz” on it, I’m not so sure it’s soda, unless it’s maybe Jolt.

    I just read a great article in the Chronicle by a NYT writer which told me some things I didn’t know. Hope you don’t mind if I share this: A mob burned down the house of a Russian Jewish family in 1893. They fled to the US, which admitted them, saving their lives. Their 5 year old boy grew up hearing his mother often exclaim “God Bless America.” When the boy became 30, Israel Beilin, now known as Irving Berlin, used the heartfelt exclamation for his new song, written in 1918 for WWI, which makes it 100 years old this year.

    Among other things, it made the career of Kate Smith, gave the Philadelphia Flyers an opening song forever, and caused a kid (possibly on Art Linkletter’s show) to sing “Stand beside her, and guide her, through the night with a light from a bulb!” 😂
    Happy 4th, everyone!

    • Hey, G. Monday’s paper. I subscribe to hard copy. And there was a piece in it about his daughter saying how he really meant the words, it wasn’t just about rhyming lyrics to him, AMERICA was his “home sweet home”. Touching article…I swear..I can’t get through the whole song without choking up. Never fails…Tonights tributes won’t be any different. FYI: Found out, ELDEST is a new word, and so is BROOM. Frugal, as I mentioned earlier, we just had in October. Neither one gave me any pause this morning, so I’m kind of surprised that they’re stumping everyone. I guess I do function better “without” the sleep! 😂😂 Hoping you have a great 4th, Bud! God Bless America ! 🇺🇸🙋🏻
