  1. Good morning. No problem today. This time my V stayed a V when putting down the letters. I was on the local when doing the words but switched to the express when it came time for the cartoon answer. Seeing the V in the letters made the solve real quick. Thanks Angela for fixing that typo on me yesterday. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. I’m with you, an easy, breezy one today…but cute and clever as always. Love your TRAIN of thought 👏🏻👏🏻with the subway reference…😉 And you’re very welcome…always got your back…You stay well too, Paul…and be safe out there…🌴🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…🌴

    🎶 There’s a VACANCY won’t you come to me……And fill my empty spaces…I’m a motel man in a promised land….That’s filled with empty faces…🎶 “Vacancy” – Harry Chapin 1974 https://tinyurl.com/y6dko7xa

    🌴 Some people like a placed that’s staged…it helps them picture things
    While others like an empty space…so their thoughts can take wings….
    They maybe picture the main SUITE, their furniture in mind,
    And thoughts ABOUND of what goes where with all their stuff in kind…
    They always should check every VALVE and windows too are key,
    If you need too much MUSCLE…you’ll be needing WD!
    Just keep in mind the look alone, as great as it may be…
    Is not enough to seal the deal…there’s more to “VACANT “SEE”…🌴

    With no new words, but terrific anagrams, there was nothing this morning that caused the Early Birds to pause…and they were all in agreement that CELUSM was the most creative of the LOT…

    Our cartoon? Sliding glass doors, vertical blinds, kitchen ceiling fan, palm trees…I’m thinking Florida. And I say kitchen, because there’s an island visible on the right. Plus the room leads out to the rail-enclosed deck, which makes sense…Beautiful hardwood floors, matching the wood grain of the fan. I’m thinking oak. The obvious enthusiasm of our couple? I’m thinking maybe a little bit too much TENANTcity…(Too much of a stretch?…Hmm, I tried). Anyway, they’re definitely making it easy for the rental agent. I mean at LEASE ask a question or two, no? But then again, maybe we came in late…and they’ve already gone through the COMPLEX issues…Bottom line, it’s an empty apartment…and they’re definitely getting a “VACANT-SEE”. It’s a brilliant pun, sharing SPACE with a cartoon that leaves no ROOM for doubt…So, There you have it, Folks…Done! Have a good one…Be well, stay safe… And I’ll leave you with a little RENTAL humor…I had a house and a guest house…and I decided to rent out the first floor of the main house only. The noodles that rented it were no problem at all…I guess you could say they were low mein TENANTS…What? Read it again…🌴🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Ok so…Dr Fauci last night. Granted, he didn’t rip one down the middle…but he’s still my MVP, and I still cheered and gave him the Standing O…Out of total respect…⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • The first thing that came to my mind was that if the line formed on the right as you said yesterday to watch the pitch, they could have gotten beaned! 😂
      After that, that was some hellacious lightning storm and downpour.

      • Ok…funny…But c’mon..No mas! The man’s 5 months shy of 80, and he spends every waking hour sitting behind a desk…besides, he said he was nervous. And keep in mind, he preaches Safe Distancing, right? So, again, as I told the Professor, he stayed true to form! 😂 And I know you’re a fan…The rain? We’ve been going thru it for days now…The Lous are outside as we speak…building the ark…🤷🏻‍♀️💦

  4. 💪🏻 As the plumber entered the SUITE to fix the broken hot water VALVE of the new VACANCY, she couldn’t help but stare at his physique…”MUSCLE ABOUND “ was putting it mildly…💪🏻

    🎻 She tried to master the new SUITE, but didn’t fare too well,
    The double bass with strings too tight…to play was hard as hell…
    She felt her MUSCLE tighten, like a VALVE that’s gonna burst,
    And tried her best to work the bow…while thinking…”Wow, this hurts”…
    Sweet sounds from others did ABOUND, but she was way off key…
    And knew that it was get this right…or her seat? VACANCY! 🎻

  5. A wee bit wide of the plate regarding Dr Fauci’s toss.The pic in today’s cartoon reminded me of our first apt when I was in grad school,It was 1 big combined room,with a side kitchen island,bedroom and bathroom.In the big room, almost as vacant as the cartoon apt,sat a recliner,a tray table,a portable TV,and my parents’ red chrome kitchen table.Almost looked vacant!

    • Good Morning, Professor. Dr Fauci…Let’s please keep in mind that the man has built his illustrious career on the hope and belief that no one will ever CATCH anything….And he stayed true to form…Your first apartment? I’m sure you loved it…and I for one wish I had one of those chrome kitchen sets from back in the day…I have vague memories of my Parents having one. Gray I think…IDK, it’s fuzzy…maybe it was just pictures that I remember…but I love anything retro. Have a good one, Prof. Be well, and stay safe out there….🪑🙋🏻‍♀️

      • After a year there,we moved to an apt in Illinois,a 2 BR one in a new bldg,and yes we moved our red/ chrome kitchen set with us.We thought we were living like kings,after all instead of a $300/ month grad assistantship ,I was now earning $1000/ month as a new first year asst Professor.

  6. Easy one today. I give Dr. Fauci credit for going out there and throwing the pitch. Once again, he did not back down. Before the pitch, he looked like the real thing in his uniform with Fauci on the back.
    Wishing everyone a good weekend.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. And yes, he did look good, right? And as you can see, he does no wrong in my book! Now I’m on the quest for a Fauci Jersey! 😉 Have a good one, Caroline…Be well and stay safe out there…⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Hi all – No problem with the words. I tried the ‘UN’ trick on the last word, but of course although the UN did go together, it wasn’t at the beginning, but I saw BOUND anyway. I needed the letters to get the answer. I saw SCENE in them, but the V and C let me ‘see’ VACANT.

    Thanks for the writeup and song Angela. I’m not up on my Harry Chapin except for his biggest hits, but he surely was a great talent. Nice talent on all the puns, too, especially ‘tenacity’ (is that right?) and the big winner, ‘low maintenance’.
    I love puns so much I don’t think that’s too big a stretch.
    Maybe those tenants will even TAKEOUT your trash if you ask.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    • Good Morning…(Again)..Steve! 😉 Yes, Harry Chapin…gone wayyyy too soon. And definitely wayyy under appreciated, IMO. Thanks for the Shout Outs…and yes,👏🏻 I was going for tenacity. 😂 Low maintenance? I made myself laugh…And 👏🏻👏🏻to the Takeout! (God…I’m so craving Chinese food now)!….Have a good one, Steve..Gotta run…Cuomo’s holding a news conference…Be well and stay safe out there…🌴🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Easy one again today. Can’t imagine living in one of those tiny little houses especially with all this shelter in place business these days. Three cheers for Dr. Fauci. Have a Good Friday all.

    • Good Morning, Betty. IKR? You should see what they rent as “Studio Apts” in the city. Guaranteed your shoe closet is bigger! 😉 And yes, yes, yes…Three Cheers for Dr Fauci! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻! Enjoy your day, Betty. Be well and stay safe…🌴🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. I don’t know whether John from Seattle ever reads these anymore, but if so, a big welcome to the newest National Hockey League team, the Seattle Kraken from the only other underwater team I can think of at the moment, the Sharks!
    I was Kraken up reading all the puns about the name already!
