AOSDROPSTTEPAO:  PROPOSED A TOAST

 

Mike, This one’s for you: 🍾

Good morning, Everyone.   🍎 Happy National Apple Pie Day: 🍎                                    Mike has the morning off,  I’m here to welcome you to the weekend.

Our words today are as easy as pie, the one exception maybe being PAYOFF. Those two-in-one words can sometimes be tricky, and I blinked once or twice before I saw the word. Very good scramble. Letters at the ready, on to the cartoon! Not sure if it was intentional, but Jeff has taken some poetic license here, and given us a poem within the dialogue! “Life…wife!” How cute is that? I’m reading it and thinking back to English 101 and iambic pentameter comes to mind. Iambic pentameter! It’s a word game, it’s a cartoon…it’s 6 o’clock on a Saturday morning…get over it! The cartoon: We have a man, Raised glass in hand, A ring we see…Ah, there’s the key!  (Yes, yes, I know. Sorry, I just couldn’t resist)!  It’s a PROPOSAL!…And we see he’s making a toast…And there you have it! PROPOSED A TOAST!  How cute is THAT? The couple, along with the waiter are raising champagne flutes.  The other diners, (which OF COURSE includes the requisite blonde woman dressed in purple – Seriously,  what’s up with this?),  seem to be joining in with a wine and perhaps a scotch on the rocks? Smiling faces all around! Really good graphic, exceptional dialogue. Kudos! Cheers! Congratulations!  I think today, Jeff has shown us that..To some, marriage is just a WORD…To others….it’s a SENTENCE!

Wishing Everyone a wonderful day, and to those of us here in the Northeast, I hope you’re 🎶”Singin’ In The Rain…🎶  ☔️ 💦🙋🏻

    • Good morning, Earl. Great going! Really cute puzzle. I don’t think we’ll see any sunshine today. Rain started here on Staten Island around 2 AM, and hasn’t stopped since. And the forecasts are saying..,🎶”We ain’t seen nothing yet” 🎶 Just one of those days! Be well! 🙋🏻

      • Hi Angela – now you’ve really got me puzzled. I looked up “ain’t seen nothing yet” and found Bachmann Turned Overdrive which I then rememberd ans assume you meant – but that’s not what I was thinking of. Not Sam and Dave’s “Soul Man” either. What I’m hearing is an early-mid 60’s garage/psych band singing the phrase, but I can remember the rest yet or find it. Research continues…….

  1. Good morning. Another fun puzzle. “It’s always fun when you get it. ” The words were easy for me. Just a slight pause on (you guessed it) payoff. When I got to the cartoon I was stuck so I put the paper down and had my second cup of coffee. When I picked it back up the answer appeared in less than thirty seconds. You are so right Angela,if we really study the cartoon and it’s words the answer is within. You and Mike gave us a good tip. Thanks again. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good morning, Paul. Yes, if any word is the stickler today, I think it’s Payoff. I always felt that the cartoon and it’s wording are the only way to go if you’re stuck. And Jeff’s clues are getting better all the time. Thanks for the acknowledgement, but there’s a lot to be said for that second cup of coffee! LOL. I wish you well also. Enjoy your day! ☕️ 🙋🏻

  2. Good morning/Afternoon all. Actually, I saw PAYOFF but had to pause on AROSE. At first I thought ROSEA might be a word, like a red rash or something.
    Last I heard from Mike, he was watching the Reds/Giants game, it was tied in the 14th at 1:42 AM EDT, and he said he had to see how it turned out. The Giants ended up winning on a Buster Posey walkoff homer in the bottom of the 17th at 3:43 AM EDT. If he really did have to see how it ended, you may have to do tomorrow’s write-up too, Angela.

    • Hi De Ho! You were thinking rosacea. Close, but no cigar! Mike? I know. Almost a double-header! Not sure how long he lasted, but he knew he didn’t need to get up early…so who knows? He was on a high, cut his teeth on that Music Trivia question…! LOL. Gotta love Buster, just the name alone..Buster Posey! I love it! Giants really are like the Mets…winning the crazy-a– games. So, you were right the first time. I was going for BTO. I erred in putting the quotes before We, instead of after. B-b-b-baby….very cool lyrics! For the record, I don’t know what a garage/psych band is, and I’m happy to remain so. Not up my (Tin Pan) alley! How’s that for a music pun?! I threw another good one in on a comment. Left out the 🎼though. Only 3 people wrote in, so you should catch it easy. And no one seemed to get my joke. A friend actually said this as part of his wedding vows…straight faced and so sincere…we all died!!!! I laugh till this day picturing it. Up for the challenge? 🙋🏻

      • Steve, read my reply to Paul…5 word phrase, sans the music quotes. And the joke? Nothin’? Ok..scene: Theyre at the altar. Bride finishes her vows. Groom goes on about “only you…years to come…growing old, forever”etc. Then he pauses , and says.”Linda, to some marriage is just a word….but to me, (DRAMATIC PAUSE), it’s a sentence…”! With a slight shake of his head, and the inflection on sentence….The priest sputtered first. He’s a friend! we all grew up together. And then, ROTFL!! The church erupted. I don’t know, like I said, I still crack up when I think about it. 😀🙋🏻

  6. Steve, I do not think it is fun. I felt like a cheater for Googling your words & seeing Joni Mitchell pop up, whereas Angela has most of your songs in her head. You & Angela go back & forth so quickly that I can’t keep up, and I plan never to do that again. I don’t have a clue as to the answer of your 3-part question but hope that Angela or you choose to answer it for me. Thanks.

    • Lelia, Hi, how are you and Jerry doing? I think Steves’s on his own with this one! He does come up with some amazing tidbits; but I’m all about the music. He enjoys the background minutiae, and he’s learned; but as you said, I have the songs in my head…God knows, there’s no room left for all the details! And, between us, I have no clue what he’s referring to either! LOL..But I’ll give him the A for effort! Hope you’re having a great day! 😀🙋🏻.

    • Ok, I got a minute:
      1) She painted the album cover herself, and the title ‘Song to a Seagull ” was spelled out in flying seagulls – even the record company missed seeing it.
      2) David Crosby produced the album; Stephen Stills played on it.
      3) Dedicated “To Mr. Kratzmann, who taught me to love words.” That was surely true for the rest of her career.
