  1. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you WELL…🩺🙋🏻‍♀️

    Today’s Theme? 👀 Conjunctivitis.com — A SIGHT for sore EYES” 👀

    🎶 DOCTOR, my eyes have seen the years and the slow parade of fears without crying…Now I want to understand..I have done all that I could to see the evil and the good… without hiding…You must help me if you can…DOCTOR, my eyes, tell me what is wrong…Was I unwise to leave them open for so long…🎶 “Doctor My Eyes”- Jackson Browne 1972 https://tinyurl.com/y7mc2885

    🩺 The Doctor has no patience with a person who takes chance,
    And doesn’t have to be this sick…Doc saw this at a glance
    He’s not a sugar-coater, no sweet LINER to his ways
    He sees no use to WALTZ around…there’s time restraints these days…
    He might be getting MADDER at someone who don’t take heed,
    And he’s not the type to SERMON…simply tells you what you need…
    He didn’t get to be the best afraid of what to tell…
    The bottom line…He definitely cares…and always DID MEAN WELL🩺

    Today’s puzzle is a brilliant double whammy. Our main character is a tough, no-nonsense, doesn’t-suffer-fools-easily type of Doctor. HEAL not put up with a patient who doesn’t follow a Doctors advice, bringing problems upon himself. He OPERATES under his own terms, and yes, is known to NEEDLE a patient if need be. And it may come off a little MEAN, since he does put some PRESSURE on a patient. He’s cocky…He does MEAN… WELL. The flip-side? In the same VEIN, he cares. So when he sees unnecessary health-related issues, even though he may not STROKE his patients ego, he knows what he’s doing…So it’s not the time and place to be funny…But the man doesn’t suffer from an IRONy deficiency…he MEANS WELL. As I said…it’s a brilliant double…double entendre!

    EYE Candy…Literally…LOOK (no pun intended) closely at the Eyes…The Doctor’s are drawn with brows that are arched sharply downward towards the pupils and branching outward. And the lines encasing the eyes are rounded, keeping his look tight. A MEAN angry look. The patient, on the other hand has eyes that are wide open, with raised brows, giving him the incredulous look of someone who’s taken by surprise. Like “Oh my GUAZE…he’s MEAN”. And the encircling lines are drooping, showing him feeling cowered. The attending nurse? Pretty straightforward…brows included. She’s used to the Doctors behavior…She knows he MEANS WELL…and it’s no sweat off her brow…And don’t BLOODy disCOUNT the dialogue…It’s right on POINT…EYE’m very impressed…

    Be WELL, Everyone…and stay safe out there…🩺🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Hi, Lois…Thank you very much! My pleasure…and I’m glad you enjoyed it…Be well, and stay safe out there…🩺🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 💃🏻 As she applied her eye LINER, she grew MADDER and madder thinking about the SERMON the dance instructor had given her about her clumsy WALTZ…even though she knew he DID MEAN WELL…💃🏻

    🤷🏻‍♂️ Bob was known for his one-LINER, he had always been the wit,
    He would WALTZ around a stand-up gig, and always close with it…
    His agent would get MADDER than a hen who had been wet,
    But he knew another SERMON would just lead him to regret
    He told him new material would make his audience swell…
    Bob thanked him but ignored him…knowing that he DID MEAN WELL 🤷🏻‍♂️

  3. Good morning. No problem with the words or cartoon answer. Loved your post Angela, first time hearing the singer or the song. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Thank you…glad you enjoyed it, and hoping you enjoy your day. Be WELL…and stay safe out there.🩺🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. I thought the 3 letter word was ‘was’,so I was trying to put the ‘S’ from sermon,in one of the circled spaces,which prevented my getting sermon solved.Once sermon was solved,the first word was obviously ‘did’ which led to the did mean well solution.

    • Good Morning, Professor. I don’t solve by “words”…I hold out for the idiom..😉, but to hear the Early Birds tell it…They went for a “doctor”-related word first. Having WELL taken out of the equation, I heard them play with AND, AID and END, which left them no option for the other four letter word. That’s when MEAN won out. And SERMON is masterfully anagrammed…All in all, I think it’s one HEAL of a puzzle! Enjoy your day, Prof…Be well and stay safe. 🩺🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Hi Everyone – Well jumped out right away, and once I got Sermon after thinking of smores and morose, I was able to find the rest. It helped that there were only a few possibilities for 3-letter words.

    • Hi Caroline. You solved just like my friends did this morning. 👏🏻👏🏻. I really liked this puzzle…I thought it was very clever…Have a good one, Caroline. Be well and stay safe…And keep cool…It’s 🔥🔥🔥! 🩺🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Sermon took me the longest to solve this morning though it doesn’t seem like it should have been that difficult. At any rate, did get if all figured out. Agree, Angela it was a very clever puzzle. Hope all of you have a good day.

    • Good Morning, Betty. Yes, it definitely was. And as for Sermon, as I had mentioned earlier, the anagram is definitely a Top Ten contender. The numbers don’t lie! Wishing you a good day too, Betty…Be well…and stay safe out there…🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Hi all – This one took me longer than I thought. I had to write down the letters to see both RANSOM and MADDER (even with the double letter trick). No idea about the answer, but the letters showed WELL which I figured fit a doctor, and the only three letter word that made sense was DID, so that showed the clever solution.

    Mike, you know I had to laugh out loud when I saw your video selection, although it seems these days at least one of my alma mater’s departments is more famous for being stupid enough to have to pay a huge ransom to hackers. 😂

    Thanks for one of my all-time favorite Jackson Browne songs Angela, with the great harmonies from David Crosby and Graham Nash and the great musicians from the LA “Section” band of the times who played on seemingly everything.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    One last note on Ringo’s birthday performance- he got a “peace and love” tweet from the commander on the International Space Station on his birthday, which referenced John’s “Across the Universe.”
    And speaking of Ringo, my word, *any* Beatles fan must see this clip I found last night, just posted to YouTube on 6/23/2020, a 1965 performance from the ABC theater in Blackpool. Ringo featured on “Act Naturally”, his drumming on “Ticket To Ride”, and apparently this is the first performance of “Yesterday” – excellent sound, everyone in perfect voice, I just can’t recommend this highly enough – the best live Beatles I’ve seen yet on YouTube.
    See it before the Beatles have it removed!

    • Hey Steve…No wonder you had trouble getting Sermon…it’s not spelt Ransom! 😉 JK! And Tks…you can’t beat a good Jackson Browne! I had a feeling you’d enjoy it…Have a good one, Steve. Be well and stay safe out there…🩺🙋🏻‍♀️

        • Shake hands…I was just told that I spelt NEEDLE wrong…😉 But I said…”Yeah…so…what’s your POINT”? 😂🙋🏻‍♀️

      • It’s funny that I did see RANSOM for the word, and then it got reinforced by the UCSF clip! 😂

        • I figured that…And you know I’m just breaking your shoes…👞👞😂🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Re the video clip…⭐️⭐️⭐️ APB…APB…Mike McCormick!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 🙋🏻‍♀️
