  1. Not wild about the puzzle solution, too obvious IMHO.
    Anagrams weren’t that easy but I got them.
    So HOT in Cally today, bummer me says!!
    Dodgers leading after rain delay so that’s positive for me!

    • Obvious maybe, but still clever as always, don’t you think? Have a good one, Mig. 💥🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

    🎶 AMERICA, sweet AMERICA…You know, God done shed his grace on thee…He crowned thy good, yes he did, in brotherhood…From sea to shining sea…🎶 “America the Beautiful” – Mr Ray Charles – In his own words…Performed October 28th, 2001 https://tinyurl.com/wzxcssjd

    🇺🇸 The fireworks light up the sky, and barbecues are SPRUNG,
    We celebrate our Country…and how freedom had begun…
    And to those who may OPPOSE us, we HUMBLY state our case,
    That this our beloved Country, shall forever stand its place…
    From farmland to an ARCADE, a TIDBIT to a law,
    We proudly join our forces… patriotism evermore…
    Upon lapels, a FIBULA, our Flag we proudly wear,
    And hearing sung “America” to my eyes brings a tear…
    Let’s overcome the rancor, let’s join both South and North
    This country we need cherish…honor, respect…AND SO “FOURTH”…🇺🇸

    It’s been a tough year. We’ve lost over 600,000 beautiful American souls. And we’ve kind of lost some of our humanity along the way too. So today, no puns, no jokes…Just a prayer for those we’ve lost, and a wish that we can get back that feeling we all had when we first heard Mr Charles sing this song. A wish that we can once again become the America that we’re meant to be…and that we deserve to be…

    I wish you all a safe and Happy 4th of July, as we celebrate our beautiful country…
    …And may God Bless America 🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. A description of today’s puzzle…💥🙋🏻‍♀️
    With a fireworks display shown bursting in the sky, we see a family happy celebrating the night of July 4th. And our solve…AND SO “FOURTH” is strongly hinted at, not only by the mention of Independence Day, July “FOURTH”, but by the dialogue…”I love that we’ve KEPT these traditions”..(ie) they go FORTH with them… https://tinyurl.com/csbv4uad …A very clever play on words.

  4. Well….kind of a tough puzzle outing today. Not a blind solve, so tackled the anagrams with determination. After buzzing through first four, got stumped for a few minutes on FIBULA (or was that bone a TIBIA or TIBULA??) and ARCADE. With the letters before me, initially thought it might be OUT OF, to no avail. When the bright Jumble light finally descended upon me and my AHA moment arrived, saw FOURTH….and yes, should have seen that upon a first look. Hope all your celebrations are fun and safe. About songs for today…Fred Astaire does a great dance number in Holiday Inn, replete with firecrackers !!

    • Hi Terry. I know the routine you’re thinking of, with the firecrackers, but if I remember correctly, there weren’t any words to the music that he danced to. I remember reading too about the numerous takes it took to get the routine down pat. I’ll see if I can find it…💥🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Terry…Easier said than done. How’d we ever survive before Google?
      Is this what you’re thinking of? https://tinyurl.com/zncvzm9e

      “The firecracker dance sequence was added to the movie as a patriotic number, following the attack on Pearl Harbor, which took place during filming. The dance number required three days of rehearsal and took two days to film. Fred Astaire did 38 takes of the number before he was satisfied with it. The crew members had to wear goggles during filming, because the sand from the firecrackers flew into their faces. Also, animation was added to make the firecracker “blasts” more dramatic. Later, Astaire’s shoes for the dance were auctioned off for $116,000 worth of war bonds”…💥🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Yes, that’s the video….thanks for sending. Checked the songlist….song used was FREEDOM, sung by Crosby earlier in film.

  5. 🤷🏻‍♂️ When he tried to HUMBLY OPPOSE a TIDBIT or two suggested by the therapist regarding his exercise regimen for his sprained FIBULA, feeling they’d require the skill of an acrobat at an ARCADE, the therapist rudely SPRUNG into chastising him, lecturing him…AND SO FORTH…🤷🏻‍♂️

    👨🏻‍🦽 He had an injured FIBULA, the fault of the ARCADE,
    The TIDBIT lying on the floor…a slippery mess it made…
    They should have SRUNG to action, and cleaned it up before,
    He walked on by and slipped, and found himself upon the floor…
    He tried to HUMBLY reason with the man who ran the place,
    But he did just OPPOSE his view…was rude right to his face
    So now he plans to sue him…one, for feeling so distraught…
    Besides the pain, indifference…and so on AND SO FORTH! 👨🏻‍🦽

  6. Very well said, Angela, I feel the same way. It’s a day to celebrate but also to reflect on what’s going on. This was an easy Sunday for me because I remembered Fibula and Arcade from past puzzles. Wishing all a great day.

    • Hi Caroline. Thank you, I agree. And I wish you a great day too. 🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Good morning. Got the words after awhile but had a brain freeze on the easy cartoon answer. Had “And”, it was a given but froze on the rest. Hope everyone has a nice 4th of July. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  8. Fibula got me even though I know the names of all the bones from HS biology class,when my grade average was over 100% w bonus points earned on exams.I knew the first cartoon word was “and”,but “so fourth” also stumped me.A shout out to my mother in law,whose birthday was on the Fourth of July ! May she bless us all.

    • A great day to have a Birthday, Prof. Wishing you a good one…💥🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Clarification:
        Not my birthday,but my late mother in law’s,whose birthday was on the 4th of July.

        • Hi Professor. Yes, you told us earlier. I was just saying that the 4th of July is a great day to have a Birthday. Hope your night’s going well, Prof! 🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Easy and appropriate puzzle for this holiday. Our cantor at Mass this morning sang “America the Bewautiful”. He sings with the S.F. Opera and has a marvelous baritone voice. The congregation stood in place through all three verses (they usually start leaving after the first verse) and applauded at the end. It was a moving start to the holiday. I’m off to my daughter’s for my annual Hot Dog! Happy Fourth to all of you!! 🇺🇸

    • It sounds very moving, Betty, it must have been beautiful. Have a good one Betty, enjoy your family, and a Happy Fourth to you and yours! 🇺🇸🌭🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Hi all – “Arcade” took a second look and shouldn’t have – I’ve spent enough time and money in them. Couldn’t get the next to last word and also didn’t get the answer without cheating a bit. I figured the first word was AND, used the online site to get that the second word was SO, and then the remaining letters showed (the now obvious) FOURTH, which let me back into FIBULA.

    Oh well, Happy FOURTH to all anyway!

    Your sentiments are very well said and appropriate Angela, thanks.

    “Having heard the TIDBIT of news that there was a competition at the ARCADE, he SPRUNG into action to OPPOSE the champion, not HUMBLY but a bit too forcefully, breaking his FIBULA on the pinball cabinet.”

  11. I know it’s wayyyyy after the fact, and it may be of little or no importance, but for what it’s worth, I just want to go on record stating that my use of the word FIBULA with lapel in my poem this morning refers to FIBULA as a brooch or clasp. I never meant it as referring to the bone…😉🙋🏻‍♀️
