Dear Becky
Were having an absolute blast here in Portland, Oregon. Every day weve visited pubs, toured breweries and wineries! I tell you, once I get home from this alcoholic lark Im going on a diet for sure! I have eaten too much, drunken too much and it shows! Ah, but the seafood is fabulous! Stuffed sole, pecan-crusted halibut, alder-planked salmon, and the most superb oysters Ive ever tasted! And just the right wines and microbrews to pair with them. Last night I drank too much of a delicious dark ale like a stout but with tasty roasted malts and a hoppy finish. You would have loved it. We were at The Lucky Labrador last night and will go there again tonight. Hope I still have liver function by the end of this trip! Wish you were here.

Love,
Sis

Spoiler alert: I put my tentative answer in white. C-bean, I put a question for you.

Yup. And the other name is from before he emigrated! I think you overlooked that one, Jackie. You shouldn't have passed on the dark ale, let alone the stout.

Clark Kent, Super Boy, and Kal-el?

(I hope I'm not violating some new protocol. I've been away for a while, and I don't get the white lettering...)

Just in case it's my turn (and before the subject matter turns stale) here's one:

So its Veterans Day, is it? said the old man in the retirement home after spitting his quid into a potted plant.

Yes, it is, replied the nurse, and I told you not to spit all over the place. Thats why I gave you that jar.

Headstrong as ever, the old man grunted his disdain. In my day, he said, I was a warrior. Whenever I wanted to, I just let fly. Boys looked up to me in that uniform; men stepped aside when I walked by. And the women! Some gal would wink at me, Id sidle over and nibble at her neck, and before you knew it wed... well, Im sure you get the picture.

Dont start! I get the picture, ok, but today we have professional soldiers and sailors, marines and airmen. Nobody calls them warriors anymore.

Well, I was a warrior, dammit, and we were called a lot worse than that.

In fact , there are six slang names for GIs in this puzzle in honor of our veterans, who were and are warriors in the ancient tradition no matter what we may call them.

I found this too

and microbrews to pair with them. Last night I drank too much of a delicious dark ale like a stout but with tasty roasted malts and a hoppy finish. You would have loved it. We were at The Lucky Labrador last night and will go there again tonight. Hope I still have liver function by the end of this trip! Wish you were here.

The white lettering is so....well just in case someone doesn't want to spoil the results for others. you can or don't have to look. Its hidden but visible if you want to see it.
