THE PUZZLING IS THE HARDEST PART

Must be a Tom Petty Fan.  Who the hell isn’t?!

VROOM, VROOM

Automobile-inspired puzzle.  And what a day for it.  I woke up and drove all day through NorCal and Muir Woods.  Try it sometime!

SIR PUZZLE

Stevie Wonder-influenced puzzle

EVERYONE IS SO UNTRUE

Inspired by an oft-overlooked Billy Joel hit from the 80s.  One of my favorites.  Along with “Allentown”, of course.  Another great one, but not so overlooked.

ROCK OF PUZZLES

Between “Pyromania” and “Synchronicity”, the year of 1983 on rock radio was pretty much spelled out for us.

EVERY PUZZLE HAS IT’S THORN

Bret Michaels turned out to be one of the nicest rockers I ever got to meet.  Dio was up there too.

AND PUZZLE EV-A-RYDAY

My first memory of life was sticking my tongue out in the mirror trying to be Gene Simmons.  Kiss ruled my life for a good many years.  Don’t ask my opinion on the state of affairs now.

HOUSES OF THE PUZZLE

Pretty easy to decipher where this title came from, I am sure.

CALIFORNIA CALLING

I love California.  Both north and south!

I GOT YOU PUZZLE

The male lead on this old classic died in a highly respectable manner.  Skiing.
