Let's start over with #1.
Let's start at the very beginning. A very good place to start.
When you read you begin with A B C. When you sing you begin with do
re mi. The first three notes just happen to be do re mi.
That picture looks crooked. I think you need to _____one side or the other.

If he gets that job at the __?___mill, he'll have to get up early. ___THAT__ will teach him.
Well, I should have that __BARB___ wire up by __NOON___.
Very good, Soul. I had "sickness" rather than amnesia, but the concept is
pretty much the same. How are things at your place?
Gordon and I visited a suburb just north of Los Angeles this morning. The
clouds were sitting on top of the mountains. We had a smattering of rain
on the trip home.
Soul's and GB's Answers:
That picture looks crooked. I think you need to _TILT____one side or the other.
I've got lots of ..PEP.......... today. ___?___ be doin' lots of stuff. My brother _SLEEPS____
late every morning but I'm up and at em. I think he has some kind
of _SICKNESS______. If he gets that job at the GRITS/GRIST _mill, he'll have to get up

and __NAN____ for a while.
What do stoned hippies say about every thing? .......?........!
Nice teamwork. Tilt is right, GB. Also pep. Nan is a good answer for the
twin. I think Nan was one of the Bobbsey twins. (Her brother was Bert.)
I was thinking Norman, but Nan is just as good. The mill was a pulp mill.
A place that magically turns wood chips into paper.
What did the hippies say over and over? WOW! The general observations
was that they were too out of it to think of anything more coherent.
It's 59 degrees here. I think I'll put on my Uff-da sweatshirt. Going up to
74 later. Hope it's a nice day where you guys are.
1. Saw part of a lousy movie last night. Even the well-regarded _______
Seymour Hoffman couldn't save it. Just didn't want to see more of it.
2. King, Duck, Rumsfeld, or Drysdale.
3. A forward pass often wins a football game. This one was won
by a different sort.
4. "Let's go camping this weekend, Kids. Pack up. Get the fishing
gear, the tent, the paddles and the ______".
5. Flowers that start with "S". If you make 'em plural they fit
Here's a stargazer lily. I read a book some time ago. The main character
was saying how the stargazer lily was her mother's favorite flower. Like
so many authors who can't be bothered to do any research. Stargazer lilies
did not exist during the 1930s. They were developed here in Calif. during
Read a short story by some famous author's kid. Stephen King, I think.
(Yes. Kid uses the name Joe Hill.) Anyway he had a gal using press on
nails during WWII, 40 years before such things existed.
Rock, One of the answers is still blank. The one after PEP.
I visited a Grits/Grist Mill in a place called Cade's Cove on one of the Smoky Mtns. years ago. Beautiful up there!
There's another mill in Pigeon Forge, just outside of Gatlinburg. It's ever prettier. I tried to post some pics of them but couldn't get it to work.
For the hippies all I could think of was "cool man" but that didn't fit.
Yep, Nan was a Bobbsey twin, I was wondering what her brother's name was. I remember them from grammar school days. GB
1. Critic ?
Donalds and Kayak and sunflowers are all correct. Kick is good. I
was thinking of lateral pass rather than the forward pass. Critic
was a good guess. I had in mind the actor's first name which
is Philip. Died from a drug overdose a few years ago. Only 46.
The reason you couldn't figure out " ___?___ be doin' lots of stuff" is
because I left a word out. It was supposed to be "Going to be doing lots
of stuff." My typing has gotten so bad. And my proofreading is worse.
Here's a pic from Wikipedia. This the one? One site said there were
4 mills in this area.
My grandfather used to own a mill. It was at the edge of our village;
next to a woods. Went outta business before I was born, but the old
building was still there. We kids were told to stay out. Dangerous
Hey! Found the same mill on Youtube.
That's the mill. I have several pics that we took.
Someone on here posted how to put pics on the board but I couldn't remember how. Could you post it? I'd like to be able to do that again.
Which reminds me of the game that we had going for awhile. Identifying different pics. I thought a good idea would be to post scenes from movies and see if we can identify the movie and the actors. Anyone want to do that? GB
Well sure, we could do that some more. I'll see if I can post instructions on how
to post pictures. You do one thing for pics and another for videos. Some months
back I tried to post instructions for Mikie. It turned into a complete muddle.
Hard to believe, I guess, but I got so confusiated with right and left that I gave
up. Will try again though.
Be easier if you stopped by so I could show you. Ha Ha! There's also a technique
that Gordon uses when he posts his orchid pictures. I don't know how to do
that one. It involves grabbing the picture with the cursor and dragging it
to where you want it.
GB et. al.
Find the pic you want to copy. Some are not copyable.
Some can be copied, but will disappear a day or two
after you post them.
The ones that work best for me are found by searching
for a topic and adding images in the search window.
Pics in Wikipedia also work well, although they are
usually larger than I like. Pics from IMDB disappear a
day or two after posted.
With the cursor over the pic you want to copy, right click
with the mouse. This should produce a drop down menu.
left click on "copy image".
Go to spot where you want the pic. Right click; on the
drop down menu left click on paste. Pic should
If you don't like the pic after you posted it, hit the back
space key. It will disappear. If you want to erase the
pic later, put the cursor at the lower right corner of pic
and hit back space.
Try that. Hope it works.
Your friends, Rock and Chip
OK, here are some mixed puzzles. Some hard; a few not so.
6 ______ imagined herself a really funny gal. Always telling a joke or some _____. I
guess her dream was to become a comedian.
7 ______ said she made his nerves ______. He thought she should try and
get a ______ at one of those ______ stores.
8 His ______ agreed. "The poor girl just doesn't have the necessary _______.
Why doesn't she just get a _______ job. And what happened to that boyfriend ______?"
9 Aunt Ferdy said, "I'm ______ fatter every year." Sally said, "No, you're
not. Just maybe a little ______. As mother says, you're still the ______
of charm and ______. "
Wow, GB. You're sharp as a tack. The missing word in 7 is taut.
I had essence and elegance as the last two in 9, but yours are
just as good. Oh yeah, and skills in 8.
Too bad there is no prize other than the admiration of your
Dunno why this dude has the top of his head missing. That's the
way the original looks.
That was a very challenging game! I haven't the energy to post a game right now but maybe tonight.
Admiration is always appreciated. We sick folks don't get too awful much of it. Thanks! GB
