3/5 - assuming that "she who played Blanche" doesn't count ;)

Week thirty-nine: two of five. I started off the week with a bang - Vivian Leigh and coffee break -- and then went blank. I'm blaming the 7:00 PM meetings that I had on Wednesday and Thursday.

Welcome @Josiemae! Hoping a few more show up at the T41 or a couple people seated there are going to go hungry this week. *ahem* Looking forward to the Week 39 LUNCH BREAK! And we have a couple coffee breaks scheduled too.

1/5 because I have completely blocked out Brett Kavanaugh.  I have not, however, blocked out Otis Redding and his dock of the bay sitting.  I'm a fantastic cook.  I'll do T41 proud while other T41 regulars are all off being knowledgeable.

3/5 - I got Kennedy/Kavanaugh just as the music stopped, but I'm counting it anyway, as I don't have to write anything down.

@bybrandy, Have I Told You Lately That I Love You? (TM Van Morrison) You and your cooking skills are welcome at the T41, where I remain at my well-worn seat at the head of that table. Otis Redding and Dock of the Bay were an important part of my life back in "the day." I can't remember the occasion now, but that song and Otis remain ingrained in my brain. (Ha, I'm a poet ...)

When Supreme Court was announced as category, I slapped my money down on the kitchen counter and declared I'M OUT!"

One more for the T41. Saved from a shutout by Otis, which was an instaget. I'm all or nothing.

4/5 this week - I really thought I was on a roll for a perfect week when I read the clue because there is a city called Hamtramck which was essentially a Polish enclave surrounded by Detroit and Highland Park.  But could I think of the word enclave - hecky bo becky no!  Oh well, it doesn't pay to get cocky - the Jeopardy gods will get you! 

Seriously though nothing can dampen my spirits this weekend because Greenfield Village hosted its first games of historic Base Ball since August 2019.  I got to attend both the Saturday and Sunday matches, see good friends and enjoy a ton of fresh air even in the heat of the weekend.  These games are truly my summer moments of Zen so all is well in Grundoon world.

3/5.  And though I floundered on the two I missed, I literally couldn't think what else it could be for the three I knew. Each was an IG and then think time spent wondering what else it could possibly be. (Vivien Leigh, Otis Redding, enclave.)

2/5. I would have been 4/5 if I had gone with my first guesses, but nooooo. "Enclave", on the other hand, was nowhere to be found in the hidden recesses of my mind.

I will join you at the Table for 5, and since I was inspired by a cooking show this weekend, I am bringing honey-cinnamon bubble bread (AKA monkey bread), enough to share with all the tables!

Gosh, it's just Monday and everyone has reported in. For Week 39 we have co-winners again, two of our players being showcased for having identical scores for four weeks in a row. The fact that they sit next to each other on my score sheet has nothing to do with that coinky-dince, does it? Of course not!

So to reflect the consistency of these two fine players, here is a MIRROR ball trophy for @Good Queen Jane and @GrannySmith. Long may you both SHINE in the weeks to come. Congratulations to both of you for your stellar achievements!

Congratulations, fellow honoree @GrannySmith! Now if you could just write the answers a little larger, that would be wonderful, not that I'm looking at your paper, nope, not me....

3/5 - the middle three. Monday & Friday blew chunks.

Same here. I always forget about James Monroe, and my first thought for Friday was Doyle, but figured that European meant from the continent so went with Ibsen.

WEEK 40 • June 14, 2021 — ONE asterisk  *
* 196. 19th Century America. 2-word term for the statement saying U.S. policy is “to leave the parties to themselves, in the hope…other powers will (do) the same.” *
197. American Women. During her second marriage, she split her time among homes in New York, New Jersey, Paris & Greece & a yacht.
198. Movie Characters. A character who was going to be called Lunar Larry became him, inspired by the name of a real person.
199. Countries of the World. On this country’s National Day, August 15, all 39,000 residents are invited to Vaduz Castle for festivities & drinks.
200. Fiction. In a 1915 story by this European, a woman finds a corpse & says, “It’s gone and croaked — just lying there, dead as a doornail!.”

2/5 no * 

I’m mad that I didn’t get to see the show after Wednesday due to the golfing.

It looks like a small but excellent group at T4-1.  It's so hot and humid I suggest we order in something good; suggestions welcome.

I'm not sure about the main dish - but I'm thinking ice cream for dessert.

Definitely ice cream! Maybe with fresh strawberries.

I vote chicken and avocado salad in wraps for main course. Any other suggestions gratefully accepted.

I'm all for ice cream as the main course. And dessert.

Last one was 11 weeks ago. You were due for another! There's been only one other asterisk out of 14 reported scores so far.
