    Hi GB

    I didn't even know there was a song called Slip Sliding Away. Looked up
    the lyrics. Too cryptic for me.

    For 52 I had a different answer in mind, but pitching makes perfect sense.
    All the rest are right on.

    Regarding your post:
    59 Even
    60 Knights, nights

    61 Bread
    62 Trust
    63 Still thinking about this one.

    Geez, this looks like fun but, alas, my poor brain is too tired to think or play.

    Love, Mikie

    Hi GB

    51 is Sound fiscal policy and the Sound of Silence. (Wikipedia says the song
    was originally the Sounds of Silence.)

    52 was kicking.

    Is 63 game?

    Just woke up from a nap. Maybe I'll think of more puzzlers before I
    go back to bed.

    Hi Kids

    68 looks like owed and ode.
    69 yarn
    70 break as Soul said and brake
    71 banned, band

    GB your answers for 64, 65, 67 are all right.

    I used to play in a band in the park. It was the High School Band. We
    played every Saturday night during the summer. Folks sat on blankets
    and picnic tables. Some sat in their cars. Instead of clapping, they honked
    their ______.

    The stores stayed open late (till 9PM). The farmers came to town
    to do their shopping. The sidewalk was crowded with people walking
    up and down and chatting. The popcorn stand was open. It had been
    in the family for 3 generations. They grew their own popcorn. Best

    Hope that headache goes away, Soul. I never have headaches. My wife
    used to have them all the time. Even after she got rid of me. LOL

    You guys got them all correct. 68-71.

    The band in the park reminds me of Mayberry on Andy Griffith. They had some great episodes. Your hometown sounds like a wonderful place to grow up Rock.

    Soul, I hope your migraine goes away soon. I have had these and I know how much they hurt! GB

    Hi Kiddo

    Pluto and Finish/Finnish are correct. Patience is a good guess. I had in mind

    Lots of folks grow impatiens around here. See them at the stores too.
    (Below on the left.)

    Yesterday we went to Trader Joes'. Lots of phalaenopsis orchids for sale.
    I think they were $13 @. Many colors.

    Hi GB

    I noticed some new plants around our ranch yesterday too. Next to the outside
    sink is a sheet of plastic. I think it was once the cover of a cooler. Anyhoo that's
    all it is; a sheet of plastic. But there is some water on it. On this inhospitable
    surface there are 4-5 plants growing. I think they are some sort of succulent.
    The biggest is about half an inch high. We've lost a lot of plants the last few
    years with the drought, and the restrictions on watering. Still have hundreds
    of orchids though plus succulents and various other flowers such as plumeria,
    amaryllis, geraniums, camellias, naked ladies, and narcissus. Then we have
    morning glories on the back wall and bougainvillea on the east. The last two
    are courtesy of the neighbors.

    Well, I think I know the rest, but will leave them for our friends.

    Those are all correct.

    I just got a call from my daughter. She said baby Cadie is sick. She's in the NICU with an IV and a tube in her nose. She also has a slight fever. It seems she wasn't having bowel movements and she began to vomit a lot. She threw up all day yesterday. They've taken x-rays and an ultra sound and don't see any obstructions. I don't know what could be wrong. I'm praying that she'll be all right. She's so tiny. I hope everyone will pray for her and her parents. She's only one day old. Her mom is frantic. GB
