  1. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…
    There’s a plaque under the painting that reads…“Betsy Ross Presents Flag to George Washington”…Be well, and stay safe out there…🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. ♟SO THE STORY GOES that the TYCOON was always known to WAGER heavily on the CHESS Tournaments, which often led to STORMY results…♟

    💦💨The night was dark and STORMY, and the TYCOON wasn’t sure,
    If driving in this weather would be something he’d endure…
    Once he was out and on the road, a CHESS game would compare,
    And he would WAGER that the odds of checkmate won’t be clear…
    His thoughts leaning towards staying put, ‘stead risking “there she blows“
    It’s looking like a hurricane or SO THE STORY GOES 💨💦

  3. There are two interesting shadow solutions. GEE, THE STORY SOWS. Early stories about the creation of the flag, true or otherwise, gets spread (sows) all over the place, and SEE THE STOGY ROWS. Look at the rows of cigars on the flag, as though the stripes were cigars. It comes close to STODGY.

  4. An easy Monday puzzle,though tycoon did give me a reason to pause.I was thinking a star or stripe related solution,at first,but the lack of an ‘a’ or ‘I’ refuted those thoughts.Story was a quick 5 letter word solution,followed quickly by the clever use of ‘sew’ and goes.Another hit and steamy day in WCentral Illinois.

  5. Very funny answer today. Like Chuck and others, Tycoon was the toughest for me. Story was the first word of the answer I found and “Sew” the last. Hot here this week, too.

  6. Good morning. It seems I followed the path of others today. Tycoon took the longest for me to get and on the cartoon answer I got Story first followed by Goes which left Sew for the quotation word. Today is the first day Bocce will legally be open. Gonna take a look as there was a lot of turmoil out there when guys were playing that shouldn’t. Until tomorrow stay well.

  7. Good morning. Kudos Angela for yesterday’s entire post. Enjoyed it all especially the song choice. I finally read everything today. If you asked me who Queen was before the movie about him I would have told you I have no idea. Must admit that after I saw the movie I became a fan of his singing and showmanship. People put his voice as one of the best and I’d have to put him up there. I really liked the movie which surprised some of my friends as they think I’m to straight laced. Like my reasons for not liking the Beatles etc. take care.

    • Thanks Paul. I’m glad you enjoyed it. And yes, he had quite a range, and has been credited with having one of the best voices of all time. So, the Bocce? How’d it go? Safe distancing? 🏐🤷🏻‍♀️

      • Good evening Angie. When I got there about 12:20 the President was leaving and he had played with 3 other people. He said they all left so I found 4 guys playing knock rummy and a couple guys watching. Out of the 6 only 2 joined up this year. After a half hour I replaced one of the guys that left. By 1:00 the sisters found us and asked if we were gonna play because now there were 5 there. The two of us said no, otherwise the card game would be over. At 3:00 we finished the game and went over to the court and now there was 10 players. With the threat of rain from the dark clouds I went home Happy that I didn’t get aggravated from having to be in charge keeping a list who was in next. Especially when they are the next to play but get tired of waiting and don’t say anything when they leave. Sometimes it’s so crowded your two whole games out and finally get in the third game. They would always look to me to do everything. I’m not falling for it this year. I want to see other guys water and groom the court besides myself and another guy. When the guys expect you to do it that’s when I stop. Until tomorrow stay well.

        • Threat of rain? We had a major monsoon here…I know you must have gotten hit bad too…It was unbelievable…I didn’t realize that you were getting stuck with so much of the grunt work at the park. It’s always easy to push the work off on one or two people…I hate when that happens. And you’re right, you don’t need the grief. And it always seems to be a problem when a new group of people come in…But I know you really enjoy the game, so I hope you get it straightened out…And backing up to the rain…Did they ever fix the roofing? I can just imagine what it must have looked like tonight if they didn’t…Hope you’re having a good night, Brooklyn…Pleasant dreams…🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Another vote for a pause at tycoon though was able to figure it out. Think it has tripped me up before so at least I’m learning. I thought of sew first so the rest of the words fell into place easily. Thanks for the flag etiquette lesson, Angela. I remember learning to fold the flag properly many years ago at Girl Scout camp. Stay well all.

    • Hi Betty…I didn’t post the video at top…that was Mike. And if I get a chance, I’m going to look up Tycoon…It seems to be tripping up way too many people today…Be well, Betty…stay safe. 🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Hi all – I was briefly stuck on STORMY, but when I saw STORY in the answer, it was so similar that I got it from that. Also, nice to see the fourth word where the Y is not at the end.

    Funny coincidence – there’s a comic strip I follow that shows classic paintings with updated amusing captions, and a couple of days ago the subject was the very one we have here today. It prompted me to look up Betsy Ross on Wikipedia, so I learned about the story and the doubts about it then.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “It would have been a STORMY incident had the upstart not defeated the TYCOON in the CHESS match, since he didn’t have enough money to cover the huge WAGER he’d placed.”

    • Hi Jensen. I’m not sure if you’re pulling my leg, but SEW? Did Betsy Ross really “sew“ the flag? 🤷🏻‍♀️ David’s using it as the pun replacing So…”So the story goes”…since the story we all grew up knowing seems to be a matter of contention. Be well, and stay safe out there…🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Very funny todays puzzle. Got stuck on stormy, but was able to figure it out. Very hot here too.
