  1. Good Morning, Everyone. 🚀 LUNAR…OR LATER? 🚀

    🎶 So it’s up to you and it’s up to me…That we meet in the middle…On our way back DOWN TO EARTH…Down to earth, down to earth…On our way back DOWN TO EARTH……Ooh, oh, oh, ooh…🎶 “Down to Earth” – Justin Bieber 2009 https://tinyurl.com/y5w8ctxz

    🚀 The celebrated Astronauts, the HOTLY ‘waited meet,
    It’s TAKEN nineteen days for us to happily them greet,
    Successful in their space venture, America’s so proud,
    Yet these guys very humble, as they face the media crowd…
    Their feelings all kept INWARD, they’re stoic to a man,
    The TV cameras ROTATE, as they explain best they can
    Most all of what they’re saying…spoken devoid of mirth
    Out of this world to we mere men…But they’re sure DOWN TO EARTH! 🚀

    HOUSTON…We have a Press Conference“…But first…this: With all our words having last appeared in 2019, today we’re dealing with recent old favorites, but with new anagrams. Which lately seems to be happening just once in a blue MOON. And except for the slightest FLAG thrown down at ROTATE, the Early Birds FLEW HIGH with today’s puzzle…and PLANTED their answers down in a flash..perhaps even SETTING A RECORD for completion time. It’s as if they were on a MISSION…And thank my lucky STARS, we had total TRANQUILITY this morning…A WALK in the park…So, with that being said…it’s ALL SYSTEMS GO…

    Dateline: Houston – 10 a.m. CDT, August 12, 1969, and (off camera), Julian Scheer, NASA’s Assistant Administrator for Public Affairs, opens the televised APOLLO 11 Post-Flight Press Conference, in the auditorium of the Manned Spacecraft Center, Houston, Texas. And you are there… https://tinyurl.com/y68hmnsx. Seated left to right, Lunar Module Pilot, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, Commander Neil Armstrong, and Command Module Pilot, Michael Collins. (I think)…If not, I trust one of our CREW here will correct me. And while we’re at it…I’m a little UP IN THE AIR about something. I’m going with 1969, yet somehow I’m feeling some doubt. The Astronauts don’t look all that young, and yet they were when they went up IN SPACE, 39, 38, and 38, respectively. But then again, if we’re seeing a press conference of later years, why would the dialogue be telling us that “They don’t seem to realize how famous they are”. Surely they knew as years went by, no? So I’m going with what seems to be on the SURFACE – taking into consideration the word “returned” in the question, and following my gut instinct – and dating it 1969. And I’ll take it ONE SMALL STEP at a time…And just hope I don’t LAND with egg on my face. So, the key thing here with today’s puzzle, is how humble and unpretentious our Astronauts are. Buzz voicing the SEDIMENT, I mean sentiment, and Mike wanting to share the spotlight with the team of engineers behind it all. These guys may have been OUT OF THIS WORLD, but they were definitely https://tinyurl.com/yy9f8hk2 ….DOWN TO EARTH!

    Eye candy? It’s a great cartoon, but there’s not much to write home about in the way of tiny gems. Four reporters, the two bookends holding notepads and pens. A very odd hair style on the reporter FARTHEST left…And if you enlarge the cartoon, https://tinyurl.com/y24oqezg , and look closely between the heads of the two middle reporters, there’s the slightest glimpse of the NASA logo, with the first A visible..But that’s about it. So, There you have it, Folks, Done. Have a good one…Be well, stay safe out there…and I’m gonna TAKE OFF. I’ll see you CRATER…🚀🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🥃 With his temper TAKEN up a notch, he couldn’t hold it INWARD any longer, and HOTLY turned towards the man on the seat next to him saying…”If you ROTATE that barstool one more time In my direction, I’m going to bring you DOWN TO EARTH so fast your head will spin…“ 🥃

    ⚾️ He kept his feelings INWARD, though the toll was surely TAKEN,
    This subject HOTLY contested…and he was definitely shaken
    The plan to ROTATE pitchers, without the proper rest,
    He knew would prove destructive…foolish to put to the test…
    He wondered should he speak up, should he give his two-cents worth?
    Or wait until an injury brings Coach back DOWN TO EARTH…⚾️

  3. The answer came to me right away but I had to back into both Hotly and Inward. Thanks for the link, Angela. That is a strange hairstyle. Might Jeff be thinking of particular reporters?
    Wishing all a happy weekend.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. YW. That hair? Yes, it definitely is…And if it is patterned after any one is particular…I’d love to see an actual picture! 😉Hoping you enjoy a happy weekend also, Caroline. Be well and stay safe. 🚀🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. I was flying high with all the jumbles but with the 11 letters , the W gave me a bit of a fit until by chance I visualized EARTH… bingo! I came DOWN TO EARTH !!!
    Let’s have a thought for all those suffering the Covid-19, they are all human like us!
    Take care

    • Good Morning, Christian…Bingo, indeed! 😉 A very clever solution! And yes, prayers should never be partisan…Hope your days going well. Enjoy and be safe out there. 🚀🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Hi all – The LY suffix worked for HOTLY, but the double-letter trick didn’t help with ROTATE. The answer seemed pretty evident from the dialog.

    Thanks for the great link Angela, that was fun to see.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The astronauts HOTLY debated whether the correct steps had been TAKEN to ROTATE the thrusters into position to begin the INWARD spiral back to Earth.”

    • Hey Steve. YW..I found it interesting too…I’d never seen it before. And I like your sentence subject! 😉 Be well, Steve…and stay safe. 🚀🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Interesting today. I was stumped by INWARD but the solution came immediately. I think the reporter’s hairstyle is better than my hairstyle…. Hope all is well!

    • Hi Mig. I agree…An easy solve. The hair? Hmm. Neither hair nor there? 😉. Have a good one, Mig. Be well and stay safe. 🚀🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Easy one today, unlike yesterday. I was totally stumped by nonplussed though “forgot to add the last number” was a great subtle clue to the answer. Rotate has given me pause but figured it out today so I’m back in the game. Hope all of you have a good Saturday.

    • Hi Betty. Looks like nonplussed took quite a toll yday…Not often when we see one that stumps so many readers. But as far as the game goes?…You’d always be in my starting lineup! 😉 Hope you’re enjoying your day. Be well, Betty…and stay safe out there. 🚀🙋🏻‍♀️

    • I’m sure you’ll get ‘em next time, Prof…Be well and stay safe out there…🚀🙋🏻‍♀️
