    Oops got D2

  • foodonastump

    And I guess I have C3 if it’s pretty straightforward.


    See you later for hints!

    I have an automatic reaction for D2 but suspect it's wrong but, of course, I'll never be able to unthink it.

  • lettersatoz

    My immediate answer for D2 was one I didn't really like at first but the more I look at it, the more I'm guessing it may be right.

    Working on C2 and C3.

  • roxsol

    Oh, I think I have C3!

    Got C2!

    Isn't it funny how sometimes they jump right out at you after not looking at them for bit?

  • blfenton
    9 days ago

    Still have B1 and D3 to figure out.

    I'm really unsure of D2 but I'll leave it for now.

  • roxsol
    9 days ago

    Yep. I think I just got C2 as well, bpath.

  • foodonastump
    9 days ago

    In my opinion my answer to D2 is something that one should be confident with.

  • lettersatoz
    9 days ago

    Just got A1 ! Only B1 left to solve.

  • roxsol

    FOAS, there could be a variant to the answer.

    "In my opinion my answer to D2 is something that one should be confident with."

    Is that a hint? D2 is the only one I'm not sure of, all the rest seem pretty easy, especially the two that are variants of yesterday's game.

    Rusty, there is a hint in my comment to FOAS.

    .😷

  • foodonastump
    9 days ago

    Yes, no hint in my comment, but roxol’s response makes it a bit more plane to see.

  • Rusty

    Roxsol. I wasn't asking FOR a hint, I was asking IF that was a hint, trying to make it fit with my answer.

    Oh, my apologies Rusty. I misunderstood. I thought I was being helpful since you were asking about hints. My mistake.

    Stuck on A2 & B1, but I think I have the rest - but I could be wrong 😀

    Carol!!! B2?! Sorry but I think you'll understand why I’m surprised; you got the hard ones!

  • roxsol
    9 days ago

    FOAS, I thought B1, was one of the harder ones! It took me quite a while. (not a hint)

  • bpath
    9 days ago

    I THINK I have B1. But the arrangement is making me both doubt and confirm my idea.

  • roxsol
    9 days ago

    C3, I have two answers. I like one slightly better than than the other.

  • OutsidePlaying

    I may have them all, but i am not real confident in my answer to B1 and D2.

    “FOAS, I thought B1, was one of the harder ones! It took me quite a while. (not a hint)”

    Roxol - I’m don’t know if I misread or if she edited after I responded, but I thought she said B2.

    But if anyone is having chronic issues with B1 they should see a Dr. 😉

    @ FOAS - I did go back and edit almost immediately. You must have seen that in the few moments it was up before I fixed it 🙃

    B2 was super easy 😃

  • bpath

    FOAS, well, now you have completely turned my answer for B1 on its head. I thought I had it, and now I’m at a loss.

  • roxsol

    bpath, I’d like to try and help you out but I’m a little scared. 😳 (not a hint)

    I agree with FOAS.

  • foodonastump
    8 days ago

    bpath, you probably have it but just don’t get my reference. Stick with your gut!

  • roxsol

    FOAS, being married to a guy who grew up on a farm, I have a different thought on B1, especially at this time of the year but I’m pretty sure no one would connect with it. I get your reference, though.


  • carolb_w_fl_coastal_9b

    Yippee - I figured out A2!

  • bpath

    It’s Thursday night, do you know where your solution is? (Does anyone else remember that PSA?)

    I thought A1 was cute.


    A-1 Pecan Pie
    A-2 Spring Break
    A-3 Smile

    B-1 The Aftermath
    B-2 Once Upon A Time
    B-3 Foreign Language

    C-1 Splitting Headache
    C-2 Color Between the Lines
    C-3 Overnight Delivery

    D-1 Grandpa
    D-2 Mississippi Delta
    D-3 Way Behind Schedule

    Dang, I had ”broken spring” for ”spring break”. My kids have been out of school too long.

    Can’t believe I never got B1 - it wasn’t really that hard!

  • roxsol

    bpath, I think you deserve full marks for ’broken spring’.🙂

    My comment about B1 and farmers is that they call the stubbly new growth on a field after the harvest ’the aftermath’.👨‍🌾🚜

    Thanks, Jasdip. Lots of fun.

  • patriciae_gw

    I did not get D3 which was so obvious.

  • Rusty

    ^^ I grew up on a farm and never heard that term used that way. Must be a regional thing.

    And finally! I got them all right! ! Even though that's not how we pronounce A1 in this part of the world, it is cute. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that 'pee cans' and 'pa kahns' are the same thing.

    ;^)

    I had color blind for C2 and thought they were blinds.

  • foodonastump
    7 days ago

    I’m going to raise a minor objection to C3. ”PM” is only partly - less than half - what I’d consider night. So I never came up with overnight delivery but rather morning delivery. I’d agree that overnight delivery is a far more common term though. Awarding myself partial credit.


    My hint for B1 was references to Dr Dre whose first album was The Chronic, and who later released a compilation album The Aftermath under his newly formed label.

  • carolb_w_fl_coastal_9b

    I had 'color lines'.

    We've always said 'inside the lines' not between them - which works too, I think.

    'Aftermath' is the only one that totally eluded me. I got hung on above or below - and 'the'. 'After' never occurred to me. How does 'the' factor in?

    Thanks again, Jasdip 😀

  • foodonastump
    7 days ago

    ”the” came after ”math”, hence ”the aftermath”

  • OutsidePlaying
    7 days ago

    We’ve always said ‘color inside the lines’ too, so I think it works, Carol.

    For D3 I had ’Way off schedule’ which I guess works too.

  • blfenton
    7 days ago

    "The" was under "Math" not after it. If it is The Aftermath it should have been written

    Math The.

    For C3 I had Delivery on time. Glad to see I was right with Mississippi Delta - I did really wonder.

    The rest I got correct.

    Blfenton, I think the placement of the words in B1 is why it took me so long to get B1, and I still wasn’t 100% sure.

  • carolb_w_fl_coastal_9b
    7 days ago

    I agree with blfenton - sometimes these clues aren't optimal.

  • foodonastump

    Carol is your last post after or below bpath’s?

    I believe the answer is ”yes.”

    Rusty, I'm curious what your answer was when asking FOAS if his comment was a hint to D2. Obviously, you were looking to verify your answer. Just saying.

    eta I like these puzzles and working as a group.😃

  • Rusty

    Sometimes it takes a pretty good stretch of the imagination to get an answer to fit the clue. Or vice versa. And sometimes I think the puzzle creators don't have a very good command of the English language. Or maybe it's just how different areas have different sayings, or speech patterns, or whatever you want to call it. I've always said 'color inside the lines', too, but I'm calling that a correct answer.

    Roxsol, I had the right answer for D2, but wasn't real confident about it. I was trying to decide if he was hinting at something else, or whether I would stick with what I had or try to come up with something else. I decided to quit fussing with it and just stay with what I had. Wed. was not a real good day for me, and I think it kind of came through in my posts, sorry.

    That’s okay Rusty. I understand. I really was trying to be helpful.

    I enjoy these puzzles especially because I get to read what others are thinking. Actually, I find some of the hints as much as a puzzle as the puzzle itself. Many make me laugh and many I find really clever. I like to imagine we all are sitting at a kichen table chatting and comparing notes. Way more fun than just doing a puzzle alone.

    This thread is always a nice break from a lot of things going on in the world.🙂

    I hope your day is going better today.
