Psst...

Psst. It's me again. Check me out. No I don't have the measles that's real fruit - quality stuff. If you're going to do something, go all the way. Be the ice cream. No artificial flavors or coloring. Just old fashioned goodness.

I'm supposed to be telling you today is National Puzzle Day. Instead of telling you about it, I'm going to let you solve one. See below. And, I'm not cheap so you won't be disappointed.

Now that I've satisfied my obligations to Claudia, let's talk about something sweet and cold and yummy. Ice cream. It's National Ice Cream Month. This seems fitting here in Texas where it has been and will continue to be above 100 degrees for far too long. I'm going to take it easy on all of you Goal-fishers and we're just going to celebrate ice cream for a week.

Anyway, National Ice Cream Month.....I mean weak. Get it weak? As in... you're all too weak to handle a month. You'd all be gigantic and then we'd have to listen to StingRay gloat. Stay focused people. Of course, we may well melt before we're done here but let's try to make it through the week. I can't wait to see what kind of madness awaits us. In the mean time Van, Choc, and I need to go chill out somewhere.

Mmmmmmm....Ice cream! I agree Cristine, I'm already wanting it this early in the morning. Maybe I'll treat myself this evening.

Off to work...I'll be back later to see who solves the puzzle.

Chaotic said...

I found 8 really IMPORTANT words ;-)
"G R F F T W A T"

and I also found ODD JAW FUN .. I guess that is what happens when you eat ice cream too fast?

Cheryl said...

mmmmmm... chocolate chip cookie dough with caramel sauce and whip cream!!!! Sorry StrawberRay, you are not my favorite.

I think Robin is on to something!!

heather said...

Yum Chaotic...banana split.
That sounds delicious.

I love ice cream!!! And Lily must know it is National Ice Cream "Weak" because yesterday she asked for ice cream at about 9am and again at lunch so we finally caved and bought her some.

Lauren said...

I got:
guess, aid, ray, spa, favorite, jaw, rent, gig, fun, and odd.

Guess Rays Favorite...??

By the way, love the cemetary story from the weekend!

Claudia said...

Ray and I are tight, so I've got some inside "scoop"... if you know what I mean.

Right now I'd say Chaotic and Robin are both onto something.

Claudia said...

Oooohhh... and Lauren too.

Ray Wattson said...

Ding, ding, duh...

Finally someone with enough cups of coffee in their system to figure out the puzzle.

Great minds think alike, Peggy. Now guess my flavor.

Kat said...

Soooooo... Whoever guesses Ray's favorite ice cream flavor wins a shirt?

I'll guess chocolate!

Chaotic- Just saw your question from yesterday. I am in Arkansas. My husband and I have always wanted to visit Austin, but it is a little far for a weekend trip. Ahhh... maybe someday!

Lauren said...

Anonymous said...

aka Peggy

Cheryl said...

HAHA Peggy! I get it! I had to think about it!

Lauren said...

I take mine back....

PRAYline pecan :)

Claudia said...

Oh, I wonder if Ray will give points for creativity. Peggy and Lauren, the two of you would be in the lead!

Love it.

How about Chocolate CaRAYmel?

Cheryl said...

I think it was last week when Cassie was having trouble not being able to see the ShareThis button. If you ever go to the page and can't see it, hit Refresh and it usually appears afterwards. I have the same problem sometimes.

You should share it today!

Baskin Robbins has seasonal/regional ice cream flavors and one my favorites is Cotton Rayndy... that would work better if Ray's name was Randy! HA! But Cotton Candy flavored ice cream is one of my favorites and you can only get it in the summer.

Chaotic said...

yes, Peggy, that is what I got .. the 8 really IMPORTANT words "G R F F T W A T" Guess Ray's Favorite Flavor and win a Tshirt... just did not want to post that at OMGosh A.M.! Let's see... sarcasm is not a flavor... what else would Ray eat?
RAYlines ’n Cream? Rocky Ray? Oregon BlackberRAY? Rum RAYsin (my fave!!)

Claudia said...

Rum Raysin! Great one, Chaotic! That sounds right up his alley.

cassie p said...

i guess strawberRAY...since thats what flavor he disguised himself as today!

cassie p said...

OH and all this talk of ice cream makes me wanna go get my favorite ice cream...chocolate coconut almond fudge from graeters!!! Ill let you know how good it was tomorrow!! :-D

Tera said...

I love ice cream though it doesn't always love me. I REFUSE to give it up. I'll deal with the aftermath. I think I'll get some ice cream later this week. Too tired to go out tonight.

Ray's favorite flavor is Phish Food. Don't tell Sting Ray...he may get worried!

Claudia said...

Ooohhhh... nice guess, Tera. Could it be that SitngRay and I have something in common?

Say it isn't so.

BeeKayRoot said...

I think Ray's favorite ice cream is cookie dough.

BeeKayRoot said...

...And my favorite flavor is basically anything with peanut butter involved.
