  1. Happy Tuesday everyone! It was all classic clue words this morning. None of them returned as new, but three of the anagrams did. The only one we’ve definitely seen before was SPIRCT. None of them caused any trouble on my end, but BTAEA did require a couple of extra looks. I thought it was scrambled remarkably well. The letters looked familiar, but nothing came to mind until I placed the A out in front. Then it was game over.

    This cartoon reminded me just how much of a nuisance seagulls can be. I’m sure people vacationing at the beach get a kick out of them, but year-round residents know otherwise. They leave piles of garbage everywhere and they won’t leave you alone if they see you with any kind of food. And don’t even get me started on their poop! It’s a chore to keep our outside furniture and cars clean during the summer months. It looks like the dad in our cartoon is learning this lesson the hard way…..

    It’s a glorious day for a seaside barbecue! This family looks pretty close to the water’s edge so hopefully they planned their mealtime with the tide in mind. There are two burgers and three hot dogs on dad’s portable grill. I didn’t see any grill grates so this is probably one of those new propane griddles that are currently all the rage. There was also a bowl of potato salad on the blanket along with a bag of chips for non-mayo fans. I counted seven uninvited guests causing a commocean — and I’m sure there are at least seven more lurking just out of view. Dad tries to shoo them away with his Poi cap but it doesn’t look to be working. My favorite details were the action lines around the birds wings as well as the sinking sailboat in the background. Some days it’s impossible to choose just one!

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 11-letters. Five were vowels and six were consonants. With the first three letters of the anagram being FLA, FLAP instantly came to mind. With those letters crossed out, CAUSED and A were a breeze to find. Have a terrific Tuesday everyone, and just keep BIGMULNJ!

  3. Enjoyable game today. Not too hard. The Dodgers are on a short run and just started Albert Puljols tonight. Amazing!
    I dunno what Tuesday will bring but I am sure it will be fun, fun, fun!

    • Same here, Kim. The only time I use flap is when referring to the top of a cereal or cracker box. 🙂

  4. Got most of the answers in one Fleet moment as if following a Script with an acuity that didn’t Abate and that is my Update. The letters A-T-E on the middle two words reminds me that it’s time for breakfast! I think there’s some leftover pizza in the fridge here at work. Cold pizza is the cornerstone of a good breakfast. Be well and stay safe!

    • Pizza always sounds good, OO. Hot, cold or days old — it doesn’t really matter much to me. Even when I’m not hungry I can still find room for a slice. Enjoy your day!

  5. Good morning. The words were easy but bombed on the cartoon answer. Until tomorrow stay well and stay.

  6. Easy solve this Tuesday morning….I think the birds FLAPping their wings is what gave me the puzzle answer before doing anagrams. There was one small hiccup, though. I misspelled FLEET and didn’t have an L (I spelled FETEL..) All in all, spent very little time and it was a real confidence booster.

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

    📑 Despite his attempts to ABATE the arguments over the SCRIPT, he saw that the last UPDATE CAUSED A FLAP, and knew he’d now need a FLEET of new writers to get things back on track…📑

    🏃🏻‍♂️ They said he was FLEET-footed…the comments? No ABATE,
    Each bulletin that came out, an UPDATE on this guy’s fate
    It’s like the SCRIPT was written, and to them it was a wrap…
    Steroids is what they’re thinking, and of course it CAUSED A FLAP! 🏃🏻‍♂️

  8. Update got me at first as I kept thinking aptude,but having got that,the cartoon solution quickly followed for a rainy Tuesday success.

  9. 🦅 The puzzle looked familiar, theme’s the same, with an UPDATE,
    I thought I’ve read this SCRIPT before…the image won’t ABATE…
    So I searched through my FLEET of files, and found it in a snap,
    These birds we’ve seen more than one time…yet still they CAUSED A FLAP! 🦅 🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Flew right through the anagrams and cartoon answer this morning for a quick solve. Happy Tuesday all!

  11. Hi all – A quick run through the words today with a pause at SCRIPT after thinking “spirit” or “strict”. Figured the answer was CAUSED A, but needed the letters to get FLAP.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The movie CAUSED A FLAP at the previews, and a FLEET UPDATE of the SCRIPT was needed to ABATE the audiences’ distaste for the ending.”
