I got a comment on yesterday’s blog from Hobo Joe and he said that he doubts whether he will ever get to 100 blogs. Well, I went and checked and he has published his 53rd blog and he will be to 100 before he knows it; he is over half way there already. Time flies by and so does blogs. I can’t believe that I am over 400 blogs already. It just seems like yesterday that I timidly attempted to write my first blog http://dizzydick.blogspot.com/2010/07/st-blog.html back on July 16, 2910. Dang, that has been only a year and two and a half months ago. It seems to me like I have been doing this for ever. I enjoy it and can’t wait to see what everyone else is up to. I don’t only read the blogs I “follow”, but a lot of other ones. Trouble is, it takes up way too much of my time.
Yesterday, Gypsy of the On The Road Again Blog commented that she was much better at word puzzles than she was with number puzzles. Just looking at that number of my blog, I could see the pattern, but with words I am not good at all. So, to get a word puzzle for Gypsy, I had to cheat and find one in book. Here Gypsy, this is an anagram for you:
Each word or phrase in quotation marks is an anagram of another word. The solution bears some relationship to the original.
(A) “UP CLOSE” “TRIFLING” (7/8)
Answer. “_______” “________”
(B) “EMIT GRUNT” through “MOUTH CASE” (9/9)
Answer “_________” “_________”
OK, Gypsy, get at it. I will give you the answer tomorrow or you can just put the answer in a comment. Good luck and have fun. Oh yeah, all you others can feel free to solve it, you can’t get out of it that easy. Just solve it and put the answer in the comments.
