  1. Happy Tuesday everyone! All of today’s clue words have been previously used, but three of the scrambles returned as being new. I noted our repeat, VOCNIE, as having been used one other time back on 06/20/18. FOURTH is the only one I didn’t see at first. I saw HOUR and TOUR before switching gears and trying the TH. It was quite obvious at that point what it was. Since it was the only one to cause a delay, I’ll make it my pick for today’s hardest anagram.

    Today’s cartoon was absolutely adorable and it looked like a scene straight out of a Disney movie. It featured a doe and her new fawn bedded down in the grass while the daddy buck lovingly stood beside them. While reading the dialogue, I couldn’t help but notice that the buck was a 12-pointer! At least in the Northeast he is. Google says out west he’d be considered a 6-pointer as they only count the tines on one antler. Some of the other fun details I spotted were a hollow log on the ground and a rabbit getting a gander at the new arrival from the safety of the bush.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 11-letters. The combo of “baby deer” in the cartoon sentence and the visual clue of her parents FAWNing OVER HER made this one an instant solve. This particular answer was previously used on 09/20/19, and I also found FAWN OVER HIM being used on 06/29/14. On to tomorrow! Until then, be well and enjoy the day.

  2. Here are 10 Fun Facts About: DEER

    10. There are over 60 different species of deer worldwide. Deer are present on all continents except Antarctica.
    9. A male deer is called a buck, but some larger males are referred to as stags. A female deer is called a doe or hind. A young deer is called a fawn or calf.
    8. All species of deer have antlers, with the exception of the Chinese water deer. Instead of antlers, they have canine teeth which can be as long as 3 inches.
    7. Each year, deer antlers fall off and regrow. As they regrow, they are covered in a furry coat called velvet. The velvet is rich in nerves and blood vessels, allowing the antlers to regrow quickly.
    6. When most deer are born, they have white spots which disappear as they mature. The spots help fawns to blend into their background, acting as camouflage.
    5. A fawn can normally walk within half an hour of being born. Fawns do not give off a scent, which helps them avoid predators as long as they’re not visible.
    4. As deer eyes are on the side of their head, they have 310 degrees of vision. This is much more than humans, who have 180 degree vision. Deer also have very good night vision which is particularly useful at dawn and dusk when they are most active.
    3. Deer have a home range of about 30 miles. They move about depending on food availability.
    2. Deer can sprint up to 30 miles per hour and leap as high as 10 feet and as far as 30 feet in a single bound. They are also very good swimmers.
    1. Dick Day, the illustrator who created Bambi for Walt Disney, used real fawns from Maine’s Baxter State Park as his prototypes!

  3. Good Morning, Everyone…. 🦌 DEER-Y QUEEN 🦌

    🎶 Drinkin’ our coffee at the first crack of dawn…Watchin’ a DOE while she nuzzles her FAWN…It’s my favorite time of the day… High Lonesome…God don’t ever let this mountain change…🎶 “High Lonesome” – The Charlie Daniels Band” 1976

    🦌 Of course they love their little one, a girl and not a boy,
    Although the name of ROVER is one they had previously toyed…
    One wonders if this is the first, or FOURTH time for the doe?
    A NOVICE or a veteran, instinct will surely show…
    While Dad says “she’s so precious”, and Mom can stare “all day”
    Reality will tell us that it isn’t Nature’s way…
    They’ll WATCH over the little one, till Mom goes off to feed,
    I guess it might sound strange to us, but deer’s another breed…
    We humans vs wild life…ways different as they were…
    But here now with this baby deer? Parents FAWN OVER HER! 🦌

  4. 🦮 ROVER, no NOVICE, would just sit and WATCH as the new arrival, Daisy, got all the attention…his owners would FAWN OVER HER, forgetting that he’d been their loyal dog for the FOURTH straight year…🦮

    🤷🏻‍♀️ She thought to join the nunnery, a NOVICE she would be,
    She’d leave her loving family, and ROVER to go see…
    If she was cut out for that life…her FOURTH career choice now,
    But she need think it over..before she takes any vow…
    The girl is just so spoiled…used to having her own way,
    And both her parents share some blame…they’ve catered night and day…
    So Mother told her Father “WATCH, she’ll once again defer…
    Our daughter in a nunnery? Then who’d FAWN OVER HER”? 🤷🏻‍♀️

  5. Quick run through the anagrams proved my blind solve of the puzzle was correct. Cartoon scene reminds me of Bambi. I got to Watch my dog Rover and his Novice handler take Fourth place at the Westminster Dog Show. I’ll play the Wild Rover was their theme song. Heating up again on the Great Plains. Next two weeks will be a test. Staying safe and hydrating.

  6. Good morning. Breezed through the words. No Novice on this end. After a quick look at the cartoon and getting nothing I put down the letters and within a minute the answer became very clear. You see that picture and your immediately transported back to the movie Bambi. Enjoyed your facts Mike. Love Charlie Daniels Band especially “Devil went down to Georgia”This one is a tad to laid back for me Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  7. A brand new family of three
    With parents as proud as can be.
    The buck and the doe
    Will watch their fawn grow
    A scene for eternity.

    • Good Morning, Helen…🦌🙋🏻‍♀️

      A doe and a buck have a fawn…
      In the forest where it’s barely dawn
      They’ll tend to her care,
      This new baby deer…
      And they’ll fawn over their latest spawn!

      • Excellent Angela. I was too hasty earlier on. On my beach walk this morning another limerick took shape in my head so here goes…

        Though the parents can not get enough
        Of their wobbly-legged fawn with its fluff
        Though doe-ting for now
        They will marvel at how
        Their offspring soon will want spring off!

        • Hi again, Helen. 👏🏻👏🏻…Along your train of thought! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

          We’re given this new look at life
          So serene with no traces of strife…
          But a teen she’ll become,
          Let’s pray things don’t get glum…
          Does a doe need a life that’s angst- rife?

  8. A blind solve here as well,but I did solve the anagrams easily as well,with a pause over novice which looked like a misspelled invoke at first.

  9. Quick solve although I hesitated over the word FAWN … never heard nor used it as a verb???
    I hope your family fawn over you!

  10. Really cute puzzle this morning – easy breezy Tuesday. Enjoyed all the Deer facts, Mike. Thanks. Wishing all of you a good day.

  11. Hi all – I saw “voice” in the third word, but it took many jumbles before I got “novice.” Got the answer from the obvious “fawn” and the letter layout.

    Good wishes to everyone.
    Nice alternate take on “novice” in your nunnery poem, Angela.

    “The NOVICE mission scientist was assigned to WATCH over the FOURTH Mars ROVER.”

    • It’s a good guess, but it’s incorrect. Even though it’s a valid word, NOVICE is much more common. If you search for “COVINE” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary you’ll see it listed as a less common variant of COVIN.

      Some folks thought it was CONIVE, but the correct spelling is CONNIVE. Hope this helps!

  12. In a hurry… Traveling to Germany and Switzerland for a quick 10 day jaunt… So I didn’t think too hard and thus no blind solve. The words came speedily and then surprised I didn’t blind solve it.
