Many, many years ago I submitted a group of rebuses to a local Kentucky publication. I encountered them again yesterday while using this quarantine time to weed through old memorabilia.
In retrospect two of them are totally unfair (#12 = "center of attention" and #10 = "Last of the Mohicans) and #9 ("prepared") is incorrect. The others I think are still valid. I'm particularly pleased with #4 and #13.

I would like to share this with some friends who bored during quarantine.ReplyDelete
May I suggest sharing the entire "puzzles" section?Delete

Not bad, but not what I had in mind. Try to remember a Dolly other than Parton...Delete
Why is "prepared" incorrect?ReplyDelete
We are only missing 11 and 13 now (assuming "aphid" is correct).
It's a pair of "pre"s, which would generate "prepaired," not "prepared." "Prepared" as a rebus would be "Pr" (as a "pared" "pre").Delete
13 was solved by smittypap.
11 is still pending. I'll post a spoiler tomorrow if nobody figures out who Dolly is.
Cy cloned. Cyclone!ReplyDelete
