Two different kinds of mice make up the word Men, which, of course, refers to the classic novel "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck.
Jenni H from Madison, MAri H from Appleton, and Taylor Z from Darboy, WI were the winners from last week. They correctly figured out that when someone is robbing Bert next to a red Ford, the answer is Robert Redford. The hint that you might hear about him in the news was because he turned 77 on the 18th.
Since I was on vacation, and didn't have an easy way to upload a new puzzle, I ran this one for two weeks. Thinking that some people may wonder why the puzzle wasn't changed, I wanted to let everyone know the I would return with a new one. So I made a puzzle out of the famous movie phrase: "I'll be back."
Was this week to be a record or not? That was my question. I was hoping that I would have a record number of winners or at least entries this week, but it turned out that was not to be.

Now, if you happen to know any astro-physics major (like I do), they will tell you that space is full of stuff and it's not "nothing". The correct answer is "There's nothing between us." What do you think? Do you think that is too narrow and I should let "space between
Hopefully you could see that the words "Sweet Dreams" were filled with the word "This" repeatedly. Once you caught that, then the only thing left was to figure out what it meant. This time it was a song title - "Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This" by the Eurythmics.
