6:30 am
Scrabbler

Yes, and Babbler Aloysius is in the path.
6:30 am
Scrabbler

I need to get to work. Bye.
6:33 am
ItalianGreyhound

Naples is a wealthy vacation area, Ft Myers more working class - small but dense pop.around 70,000 near the water. I lived there years ago
6:36 am
NANCY

the whole state of florida is in big trouble right now, I live ocean side and waiting to lose power any minute. Lots of wind and rain. scary stuff. Now a cat 4 and just short of a 5
6:38 am
ItalianGreyhound

good luck, Nancy - hope youre not on the South West Coast
6:39 am
mab

take care nancy - so, so scary. can you evacuate safely?
6:39 am
NANCY

I am ocean side in Melbourne.
6:40 am
NANCY

not evacuating, No place to go that is safe. All of Florida is in danger for the next two days.
6:40 am
ItalianGreyhound

you should be ok, except for power outage, and poss. tornados
6:41 am
NANCY

oh, is that all.
6:42 am
ItalianGreyhound

sorry - didnt mean to minimalize it
6:42 am
NANCY

Ten inches of rain forecasted for my area. wind at 140 right now.
6:44 am
NANCY

that ok grey, i know you didnt mean to minimalize. Just really scary stuff because Florida is so thin there is apt to be flash floods from both sides with a hurricane this size.
6:45 am
marksdolly

I've been praying for the people in Florida, may God protect you Nancy
6:45 am
NANCY

News says Ian is expected to be a cat 5 when it hits.
6:46 am
NANCY

It is daylight here but still dark. Weird.
6:47 am
ItalianGreyhound

looking at the map, Ft Myers is about to be under water
6:47 am
NANCY

Thank you marksdaool
6:47 am
mab

140 - i've never heard of such wind force as that. and you're in the dark at 8 still. worrying. to say the very least.
6:47 am
marksdolly

yvw, I will continue to pray throughout the week
6:48 am
mael

stay safe, Nancy! I hope your power stays on and that your house is in a higher spot
6:48 am
NANCY

marksdolly and all of my Babble friends. If I disappear, you will kmow my power is out.
6:48 am
ItalianGreyhound

hope people left town, but I doubt many did. Ians winds are now at 155
7:24 am
MollyL

I am not brave enough to hang around for a Category 5 hurricane. I would drive hours away and sleep in my car if I had to.
7:26 am
ItalianGreyhound

prob have to since hotels are filled up; as power goes out no gas, even up-state. Thats why so many just hunker down
7:39 am
hokie carla

my cousin just moved to Tampa a few months ago. I hope she went somewhere.
7:42 am
MollyL

I hope she did too Carla. Scary stuff coming down there.
7:42 am
hokie carla

my inlaws in Jax never leave
7:45 am
ItalianGreyhound

Floridians tend to think "it will prob.miss us". Until it doesnt, as in Ft Myers right now
7:45 am
hokie carla

hey, found an 8/9!
7:50 am
hokie carla

and I love finishing a big tile on first pass
7:52 am
hokie carla

my cousin just sent a screen shot of where they are. she said they are out of evac zone c, whatever that means.
7:53 am
mael

you also really don't want to get caught in gridlock traffic when the hurricane comes, sometimes leaving late is worse than not leaving at all
7:59 am
MollyL

Oh I wouldn't leave late. I would scurry on out at the first indication of trouble. I'm a big chicken. I probably wouldn't even live in a place that could get hurricanes.
8:00 am
MollyL

Holy shit. Cuba's power grid completely collapsed. 11 million people without power.
8:01 am
hokie carla

yeah, I saw that. horrible.
8:01 am
Shirlockc

wow, bad bad news for all from the hurricane

8:12 am
rururocks

ok.. stay safe
8:13 am
hokie carla

we have been doing lots of outdoors stuff since it's going to rain for like 5 days starting Fri.
8:13 am
hokie carla

and now I'm going to walk winston - today is his 6th birthday!
8:14 am

I found wordle to be very hard today
8:40 am
Shirlockc

wordle was tricky today -- i got lucky
8:40 am
MollyL

It was tricky. But some zen master here will say they got it in two.
8:42 am
Shirlockc

8:42 am
Shirlockc

8:43 am
penquis

hello all....
8:45 am
hurshy

hi pen
8:45 am
penquis

hi hursh....doing better today?
8:45 am
hurshy

somewhat, yes
8:45 am
penquis

good...
8:46 am
hurshy

ty
8:51 am
rururocks

do you know how you caught covid hursh?
8:51 am
MollyL

Mech sounds like a Yiddish word. Like drek
8:52 am
MollyL

Probably from the COVID virus molecules flying around attacking everyone. Especially lone drivers in their cars.
8:52 am
hurshy

well, my dad was sick, but his PCR test was negative. then my mom, then my sister (after visiting here), but they didn't get any reliable testing done. so that's one possibility. the other is i got it from one of the kids in tutoring
8:53 am
MollyL

They can shoot you with their tiny COVID attack missiles.
9:00 am
hurshy

ooh, so close to ceremony
9:02 am
mael

I almost got it in 2, I was so mad at myself :)
9:02 am
mael

off to get my new covid booster, wish me luck!
9:02 am
penquis

good luck, mael....
9:20 am
hurshy

phantom: desert
9:20 am
penquis

and propose....
9:33 am
hurshy

you know it's interesting about wordle
9:33 am
hurshy

just hearing people say that it was hard was a clue in itself for me, made it easier for me to get
9:34 am
penquis

i think the ones that require more than two or three tries are more satisfying than the ones one gets in two....that, to me, is luck....
9:34 am
MollyL

Told you some Zenner would say it was easy
9:34 am
penquis

agreed....when someone says that, i try less likely words....
9:36 am
hurshy

i'm not saying it WAS easy, just that someone saying something about it made it easiER, because of what pen said
9:51 am
periwinkle

hi all. help with so9 please
9:54 am
penquis

hi peri...
9:54 am
penquis

do you have so 6?....it builds on that
9:55 am
MollyL

so9 is like a person who is in a club about a certain kind of poetry. There was a club in the 60's that Annette Funicello was in like it.
9:55 am
penquis

it is a so 6/8/9 combo...
9:55 am
MollyL

There were also three guys with muskets like it.
9:58 am
Shirlockc

i think of swords with them rather than muskets but i guess they did have muskets
9:59 am
penquis

well they weren't called the three swordsmen.. ;o)
9:59 am
sukee

Okay, that helps me with the last 4 or 5 letters
9:59 am
MollyL

Yeah, musket is where the name came from.
9:59 am
MollyL

The poetry part of the clue is supposed to help with the beginning. Starts with so...
10:00 am
sukee

i have been finding this a nice grid. Ps not harder than other letters, which is a nice change for me
10:39 am
cybernan

good morning :) Started out the day with wordle. Is it my imagination, or are the words getting a little less common as time goes on?
10:40 am
dcseain

dunno. i’ve found it easier as the words have gotten less common, though that’s about me, not the game, i think
10:43 am
cybernan

have a question on behalf of my granddaughter who is writing a skit for her film class -- do or did the people living in the southern US have a slang word for cigarettes that was peculiar to that region?
10:44 am
dcseain

not, to my knowledge, at least in the Virginias and Kentucky.
10:44 am
dcseain

cigarillo was heard some when i was young, mostly from younger people, though.
10:44 am
cybernan

so just called smokes down there?
10:45 am
dcseain

bum a smoke is a common phrasing, historically.
10:45 am
dcseain

i meant older not younger below, oops. cat on my chest and wrists,
10:49 am
hokie carla

I've heard "a cig"
10:49 am
ivesy3

.. clue for the first sc 7 plz
10:50 am
hokie carla

and rehi, peoples
10:50 am
MollyL

Google says a southern states slang for cigarettes is "joe" but I have never heard that. Cig and smoke are the more common ones.
10:50 am
ivesy3

oops nv got it
10:50 am
dcseain

huh. never hear joe for cigarette, that means coffee.
10:51 am
MollyL

A cigarillo is a cigar not a cigarette.
10:51 am
hokie carla

I thought a cigarillo was a tiny cigar
10:51 am
hokie carla

also agree on joe being coffee, but wasn't camel's mascot Joe Camel?
10:52 am
hokie carla

maybe that's why google is confused
10:53 am
MollyL

All I can tell you naysayers is that if you do a Google search for "southern states slang for cigarettes" joe comes up. As I said, I have never heard it either.
10:54 am

10:55 am

The only slang word I have ever heard for cigarettes is stogie but that was used many years ago. It made it into Roger Miller's "King of the Road"
10:56 am
hokie carla

I thought stogie was a cigar
10:56 am
MollyL

Or maybe stogie was a cigar too
10:56 am

tyvm Molly....sorry to the rest of you clears for being so dense.:(
10:57 am

Now joints, they have a lot of slang terms.
10:57 am
hokie carla

I am still doing first pass so ignoring all clue posts, so no biggie
10:58 am
hokie carla

I thought joints were always pot
10:58 am
MollyL

No, I mean words that mean joint, like doobie, blunt, fatty, etc.
10:59 am
hokie carla

oh, you're saying now take joints for ex, not joints currently. I got ya.

11:32 am

I have so6 and so8 help with so9 please
11:32 am

it's one who composes so6, but there's an extra vowel in there, such as in some retired folks do v* work.

I lived in NYC and we got all those shows
12:01 pm
hokie carla

alright, I decided to make waffles for lunch
12:01 pm
moolingwa

sounds ambitious
12:02 pm
cybernan

sounds yummy - only waffles I make now come out of an eggos box
12:02 pm
hokie carla

the hardest part was finding where I put the waffle plates for my cuisinart griddler.
12:02 pm
welki

hi folks! getting ready for a long camping trip - and packed the waffle maker (same as yours, hokie)
12:03 pm
hokie carla

I don't consider Eggos to be the same thing. I actually thought for most of my life that I didn't like waffles because I'd only had Eggos.

12:04 pm
cybernan

that is a long trip.
12:05 pm
welki

we're planning on doing a LOT of fishing. bought a small (but very sturdy) inflatable boat and trolling motor, plus we'll flyfish streams/rivers as they turn up
12:05 pm
welki

we were going to bring our float tube set ups, but the lake in california is a big one - very tiring if the wind whips up and sails you across to the other side
12:05 pm
cybernan

please make sure the water is safe --- you don't want montezuma to come for a visit!
12:06 pm
BzznBea

Sounds wonderful, welki.

hey, we're south of you but not mexico!
12:06 pm

it does sound wonderful
12:06 pm
72 Temple Owl

boring slog of a grid
12:06 pm
welki

with a little luck, we won't end up in the water, nan; and we catch/release, so no worries from the fish
12:06 pm
welki

where are you, hokie?
12:07 pm
cybernan

yes but with all the drought we have had the streams aren't as pure as they used to be
12:07 pm
welki

no, it's the same in california - the lake is very low, streams are slow
12:07 pm
72 Temple Owl

you are going to mexico? my friends just moved to rosarita
12:07 pm
hokie carla

well, we moved to SC, but was just pointing out to nan that montezuma's revenge is from drinking the water in mexico.
12:07 pm
welki

(no mexico for us)
12:08 pm
cybernan

ok - if you aren't eating the fish then it doesn't matter. Only time I've been fishing is every weekend when I was akid -- always looked forward to having rainbow trout for dinner :)
12:08 pm

ohhhh, hokie, i thought you meant you were on a road trip
12:08 pm

they are building. high end $() SF compared to $3-400

we have our motorhome on consignment at a dealer right now. no idea if they are even getting any bites.

not only mexico carla -- had a visit from montezuma while touring France and China.
12:09 pm
72 Temple Owl

what class motorhome?
12:09 pm

we have an f150 powerboost with the 7.2 generator on board - we tested running the trailer with it yesterday - winner!
12:09 pm
hokie carla

we have a class A
12:10 pm
welki

(which means we can boondock if we want to)
12:10 pm
72 Temple Owl

like a bus?
12:11 pm
hokie carla

yeah, we didn't do a lot of boondocking, but it was nice having a generator.
12:11 pm
hokie carla

yes, the class A is like the bus type that rock bands, etc. have.
12:12 pm
welki

not the partridge family *lolol*
12:12 pm

they are very hard to come by because so many bands are on the road now all at once

tree service is here to cut dead branches out of my maple tree --- don't think there will be much left when they have finished. Between the extreme heat and extreme cold we've had over the last year and a half, there are a lot of dead limbs.

1:49 pm

it is near a nice shopping center that I can walk too and a super market is close by. another market is a little bit farther but I am familiar with it
1:49 pm
penquis

sounds like a great location for you....
1:49 pm
periwinkle

maybe when he see that I am a good tenant he will change his mind about the cat
1:49 pm
periwinkle

my room mate is moving back to Mass
1:50 pm
penquis

perhaps...my old landlord accepted a few pets after saying he would not....
1:50 pm
penquis

so your find comes at a good time...
1:52 pm

1:53 pm
hokie carla

as a landlord, I would be more likely at accepting a dog than a cat. no offense to cat people but I have been in too many houses with cats that just smell bad. I know some people do a better job with the cat litter than others because I have also been in plenty of houses with cats where you'd never know.
1:53 pm
periwinkle

both of my neighbors here have cats and you would never know
1:54 pm
cybernan

and I feel the same about dogs -- dogs do smell! you can clean up cat litter every day, but few people bathe their dogs every day.
1:55 pm
periwinkle

agree nan
1:55 pm
periwinkle

missing 4 of the 8s but did not see them clued in the chat
1:55 pm
hokie carla

true too, nan. would never bathe my dog every day though, for multiple reasons, the main one being it would smell like wet dog every day.
1:56 pm
penquis

it all goes back to the owner and not the pet....
1:57 pm
hokie carla

yes, and a landlord just isn't going to take the chance
1:57 pm
hokie carla

I mean some do, obviously
1:57 pm
periwinkle

I understand but I do not like it
1:58 pm

bbl
1:58 pm
penquis

yes....here there is a significant extra deposit and monthly fee for someone with a pet....and it's counted by the number of pets...
1:58 pm
MollyL

I agree with Carla about pet odor. Cat odor is much more pronounced than dog odor.
1:59 pm
hokie carla

yes, now that we don't have our motorhome I have been looking at vrbos and airbnbs that allow pets and it's ridiculous how many have a weight limit for dogs.
1:59 pm
MollyL

Probably because dogs don't do their business in the house.
1:59 pm
penquis

probably because they do their business IN the house....
1:59 pm
penquis

LOL....
1:59 pm
MollyL

Not to mention the cat hair everywhere in a cat owner's house.
2:00 pm
hokie carla

like winston is going to cause more damage than a dog that weighs 40lbs. I mean, he is going to leave more dog hair than others, but not because of his weight.
2:00 pm
MollyL

No clue what Pen means but okay
2:00 pm

we pretty much said the same thing...
2:00 pm

pen just said the same thing as you and was laughing about it

any markings or colours hoke?
4:16 pm
hokie carla

not a cardinal
4:17 pm

looked kinda boring. was not a robin.
4:17 pm
moolingwa

well that eliminates one of the 600 or so possible options ;)
4:17 pm

ty moo
4:17 pm

a thrush maybe...the american robin is part of that family
4:17 pm
hokie carla

of course it flew off when I finally saw it
4:17 pm
moolingwa

of course
4:18 pm
hokie carla

I don't think thrush, just looked and I think it was bigger than that
4:18 pm

I had a juvenile redtail that was actually flying lower than me on my bike ride yesterday...tried sneaking up on a squirrel

you know, it might've actually been a female cardinal but I don't think there was any red on the wings
4:21 pm
moolingwa

would have thought I'd find the e by now
4:21 pm
moolingwa

hard to see the red on the wings
4:21 pm
moolingwa

but the black on the face normally is pretty prominent
4:22 pm
moolingwa

plus the bill shape is distinctive
4:22 pm
hokie carla

def not close enough to see the bill
4:22 pm
moolingwa

robins have pointy beaks for catching bugs...cardinals have triangular ones to crack seeds
4:22 pm
hokie carla

which E? I still need 2 upper but have all the others
4:22 pm

cardinals also a bit smaller than robins
