Just got another one. The slide the queen's going down represents "Helter Skelter"

Came to me now as I remember being at a PM show at Yankee Stadium about 8 or 9 years ago & he described for the American audience it's actually a carnival ride with a slide. Funny thing is to a British viewer doing this puzzle it would probably be one of the easiest ones!

Another (big) stretch, I think the woman writing on a pad may be writing a ticket = Lovely Rita.

That's no stretch, obviously Rita, the kid grabbing his mom's boob, Lady Madonna's "baby at your breast", is a stretch. Baby's in black is a good fit, who the hell dresses their baby in black? Goth parents? I don't think they exist. Ozzy?

I had no idea there was a thing called a Helter Skelter.

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again
Do, don't you want me to love you
I'm coming down fast but I'm miles above you


Makes more sense now doesnt it!

Yeah, I hate rock songs that make sense, bubble burst. Apparently Charlie didn't know either.

I was waiting for things to get back to normal. Now I don't think that is going to happen. I'm just adapting to this new Full Crazy times that we live in.

Just watched an FA-18 chase a large prop plane out of the Trump Bedminster NFZ! Right over my house @ a fairly low altitude. Absolutely badass to the nth degree.

FA-18 was loaded with missiles. Took a pass near the plane, then did a crazy climb of what must have been 40 degrees to get behind him again & kept circling him. There was also a large heli following the prop plane very close off to the side.

That was definitely something different.

Interesting and thanks for the heads up, but not "a large prop plane" A DC-6 is a large prop plane. A Martin 404 is a large prop plane. An ATR is a large prop plane. This is what is known as a "bug smasher"

He won't lose his license, at least not permanently. Could be just a wrist slap as he immediately took notice and followed directions.

The media is reporting this wrong, as I am positive it was NOT an F-16.

I saw it with my own eyes & the fighter jet was twin tail, and I THOUGHT off-set = F-18. I was pretty excited though, so perhaps I'm wrong about that detail & it was an F-15, but at any rate, I'm 100% sure it was no F-16.

The "intruder" was flying at an almost due S heading, so he must have been forced to make a hard right if he landed in Easton. I wonder why they ordered him down there given there are so many closer local airports he could have landed at.

Well, I'd call a DC-6 a giant prop plane, but that's not really what I was going for, but yeah, I'm shocked to learn just how small that plane really is (assuming the media has it right given they have the fighter jet wrong). I think that speaks to the fact of just how low altitude this all took place at, as a tiny plane seemed decent size to me. I could clearly make out the canopy of the fighter jet it was so low & with binoculars I could see there was a pilot. I'm kicking myself as I must have JUST missed the fighter jet firing flares at the prop plane as other locals clearly saw that. That civilian pilot must have been ******* his pants!

Yes the little planes can pose a great danger when the the PIC doesn’t do his homework. Little known story Ronald Regan was almost taken out by a small plane in Marine One

The article said that they were headed to Blairstown to do some “hiking” . Quite away from your place ?

Yes, it's literally the 180 degree direction, but that doesnt surprise me as I imagine if a fighter jet knocks on your cockpit you probably do whatever they say, lol, so a dramatic course correction may have taken place before I could see what I did.

What surprises me GREATLY, is that people from Mississippi know that great wilderness hiking exists in New Jersey. Most people not from New Jersey think the entire state is a paved parking lot. In the specific area you reference, you can hike in a straight line for 30 miles without hitting a residence, something I doubt you could do even in Vermont.

Normally by this time of year I'm getting pretty pumped for ski season, although this year there's just so much uncertainty that I'm just having a hard time getting myself into it.

Anyway, I did finally get away for a nice vacation last week up in the Finger Lakes area of NY. I did some hiking through a couple state parks (including in the rain one day). I also visited a bunch of wineries (where the commitment to doing things safely was quite impressive). I will say this though...when I was hiking it once again it amazed me how much of a challenge people have following rules. At both the state parks I was at they have designated a number of the trails "One Way" with numerous signs clearly indicating this. Yet somehow there were quite a few people (many seemed to be young college aged kids) that were going the opposite way you're supposed to. If we want to make it through ski season, we really need people to follow the social-distancing rules.

Anyway...here's a few photos if this works.
