B is for Bisquick, Bryce, and Bulbs.

#AtoZChallenge 2022 Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter

Good morning and welcome to Day 2 of the A to Z Challenge.  This year I chose 3 themes for the challenge: Limericks, MLB Sluggers in my lifetime, and A to Z Wordles.  For more information about these themes click here.  



 Part I:  A to Z Limericks

 

   
An Ode to Bisquick

                                                                  Their impossible hamburger pie
                                                                  A hyperbole meal you can try
                                                                 Course, if you can do it
                                                                 Do not misconstrue it
                                                                 I'm more an implausible guy

Part II: A to Z Homerun hitters of my lifetime




Yesterday, we looked at a homerun hitter from the first 12 years of my life.  Today we look at Bryce Harper who is currently smashing the long ball for the Philadelphia Phillies.  Like Dick Allen yesterday, Harper  has won both the MVP and the Rookie of the Year award.  Harper won his Rookie of the Year in 2012 with the Nationals and has won 2 MVP awards one with Washington in 2015 and is the reighning NL MVP winning it with the Phillies in 2021.   In the period encompassing 2011 through 2021 Harper has gone yard 267 times, 184 with the Nationals and 83 more with the Phillies. At 29 there could be plenty more  homers on the horizon for the 6 time all-star.  

Part III: Wordle Starting Words from A to Z

Note: Correct letters in the correct places will be shown in bold. Correct letters in incorrect places will be shown in italics.

My starting word for the 3/2/22 wordle was Bulbs

B U L B S

With only the s in the word but in the wrong place, I countered with spare,

S P A R E

This got me a 2nd letter but both still in the wrong place.  I tried daisy.

D A I S Y

That guess gained me 2 letters in the right place and the logic formed by previous guessess determined that the S would be in the middle of the word. That should have been it, but thanks to guessing the uncommon mashy on my 4th try it took me the full 6 to get to the  nasty answer.  Here are my last 3 guesses and what they revealed.

M A S H Y

T A S T Y

N A S T Y

Tomorrow  is a day off for the challenge.  It's a good day to look around other blogs  and see how they have began the challenge.  I'll be back on Monday with a state and a streak and , well you'll have to C about the rest.  For more A to Z challenge click here.

On the wordle front I again started with bulbs as I did on 3/2. I got the word in 5 guesses so am doing 2 guesses worse so far than I did in March-

I used to always have a box of Bisquick in my cupboard. I would use it to make biscuits usually. Now I've gotten lazy and use those canned biscuits. Lately there seems to be a shortage of canned biscuits. Maybe I'll have to go back to the mix.
