Unhappy venting

Oh how very frustrating!!!!! I finally managed (for the first time!) a 100% solve last month and I was going along quite well this month too until last night, that is. I sat in front of that darn proverb for 15 minutes, completely stumped. Then my doorbell rang and it was all over from there. Goodbye 100%...

Of course, at 7:00 a.m. it popped into my head.

This is the one that got me, as simple as can be. Kind of embarrassing after the fact.

"The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune."

It was the placement of the "o" and the "l" that got me. I wanted to put a vowel where the "l" was, so I kept trying to force an "i" in there. And I never imagined the second word starting with a vowel.

It's funny how you can be half asleep and something is that much clearer than when you were fully awake. I guess there's always next month.
I AM disheartened though. And frustrated. And, to be honest, quite pissed off at myself for not having figured it out.
