πŸ‚πŸ‚ Good Morning, Everyone! 🍁🍁 Happy October! πŸ‚πŸ‚

The Mom is happy they’re all there,
The first thing that we see and hear…
The Dad’s remarking with all four
The job’ll be done real quick, for sure.
The daughter, though holds the best clue…
That Jeff today is giving you.
“No Splinters” from the wood so far
So “Hands” is what we’re going for…
The question tells us it’s “outside..”
Another clue can’t be denied….

So, “ALL” of them, using their “HANDS”
To build the DECK they’re driven…
ALL HANDS ON DECK”…and there you go…
Today’s solve you are given!

Eye candy? We’re not given much, I’ll go out on a limb…
The son, the tongue, that’s all there is..so let’s give it to him!

Here in NY, there’s a chill in the air, leaves on the ground, and the smell of pumpkin spice permeating all the stores….WOOD you believe it’s October already? And to celebrate Autumn, we’re trying out a new look. Let us know what you think…
Have a great day, Everyone! πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. Morning, Angela, punster and poet, and everyone – The answer came to me when I thought of deck but I had to back into knight and attend. Seems like we’re seeing more words ending in ly lately.

    • Good morning, Caroline. Yes, I agree. And I think we had Easily quite recently. How’s the new computer coming along? πŸπŸ™‹πŸ»

      • I didn’t notice the very cool Halloween decorations until after I commented. Love the bone across the top and the light background, which makes reading easy. The computer is going well but I hope to replace the flat keyboard.

        • LOL. Yes, Mike was β€œplaying” interior decorator last night! It does make the reading easier. The computer will probably take a little while to get used to, but I’m sure you’ll adjust. We people that resist change! Hope you have a great day! πŸπŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. The daring young KNIGHT GLADLY promised to ATTEND the joust when he saw that a chance of a SMOOCH from the HOTTER daughter of the Duke was EASILY a possibility.

    The only word that gave me a fairly long pause was KNIGHT and I think it was because I wanted to have a word ending in “ing” and could not get that out of my mind. Three of six clue words with double letters? What gives with that? I don’t mind because I find I often clump letters together.
    The solution came easily when I saw how many words were needed and all the hints in the cartoon—deck, hands, all of the family—-a familiar phrase, at least to me. Interesting that Mom and Dad wear gloves, but the kids do not; both children are blondes, like their mom, Cartoon was well done but as Angela said, a limited chance for eye candy.
    Love your poem Angela and the Hallowe’en theme is appropriate and clever.

    • PS. Earl, forgive me. Your sentence: The β€œHotter” daughter? Hmm.πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Creative as always. With a little friskiness thrown in this morning! πŸ˜‰

      • Hummm—frisky? Maybe for a Sunday morning. I was more concerned with using “smooch” in a Medieval context—way too modern. Perhaps we should not refer to a Duke’s daughter as “hot” but I certainly thought Lady Mary on Downton Abbey was hot, didn’t you?
        I neglected to comment on the new format—it’s great–I’m using my desktop PC so I don’t know what it will look like on my iPad. Like where our names appear as well. Good Job—hate that phrase but it seems to fit today. Fall has arrived up here with a vengeance—frost in the lower valleys of the FingerLakes but bright sun this morning and so refreshing to walk this AM, compared to last week’s heat wave. Temperate climates have a lot to offer—fall foliage, some sizzling summers, wintry wonderlands and seismic springs.

        • Earl, You DO make me smile! I wasn’t being judgmental, I thought it was funny and somewhat endearing! I can’t speak for the “other” sister, tho! And why should Sunday morning be any different! πŸ˜‰ I think anyone would be complimented to be referred to as hot. As for Lady Mary..yes, I would agree, although I’m sure I don’t find her as hot as you might! πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ Just Sayin’ !!
          The format is Mike’s doing; the credit goes to him. I like the name appearing on top also.
          Yes, fall definitely “fell” upon us this morning. Just seemed to show up! Although they’re saying 80 for the coming week…It’s weird. I don’t think I could live anywhere where we weren’t afforded all the seasons…it becomes a part of you. Enjoy the beautiful day. You certainly brighten mine! πŸπŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Earl, since you mentioned it, allow me to plagiarize myself from the IOW page and send this to you also:

      πŸŽ΅β€I woke up today and found frost perched on the town.
      It hovered in a frozen sky, and gobbled Summer down.β€πŸŽ΅
      — Joni Mitchell, written while she was living in Saskatoon, so she oughta know!

  3. Good morning, Earl. Thank you. I couldn’t get inspired this morning. Sleep deprivation- catching up with me! Nip in the air, huh? I didn’t even notice the gloves. Good eye. I have to say..,I like your “what gives with that”! πŸ˜‰ All hands on deck, a nautical term, right? The blondes…Please! LOL..Hope you have a great day. πŸπŸ™‹πŸ»

  4. Solved everything quite quickly this morning.

    I usually look at this blog via my iPhone. This new format is MUCH easier to view than the former!

  5. Thanks for the happy October! Here in Arizona we are thrilled for the cooler season! However it is still 100degrees in Phoenix! Yea October!

    • Cooler? Hmm. Come to New York, I’ll be happy to show you some REAL weather! πŸ˜‰ Enjoy your day! Happy October! πŸŒ΅πŸπŸ™‹πŸ»

  6. Easy solve with both the words ad the cartoon this morning. It’s definitely has a Fall feel in the air these days, cool in the mornings and evenings but sunny and pleasant during the day. This coming week is Fleet Week in San Francisco beginning with the Parade of Tall Ships on Tuesday and culminating with the roar of the Blue Angels on Saturday and Sunday. There’s a Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in GoldenGate Park next weekend and a Columbus Day Parade next Sunday, so residents certainly can’t complain that there’s nothing to do. I like the new format. It is much easier to read. Happy Sunday everyone.

    • Hi Betty. Yes, today’s puzzle was easy, breezy, like the weather! How lucky to be where you are this week! Enjoy it all. Glad you like the new page. Have a great day! πŸπŸ™‹πŸ»

  7. Hi all – I also find the new format easier to read, the names are more obvious, and I like the fact that our avatars did not turn into little bugs or monsters despite the Halloween theme!

    Earl, the first thing I saw was the daughter saying ‘no splinters’ and noticing that she wasn’t wearing workgloves. And I looked forward to your sentence, and it lived up to my highest expectations.

    I’ll combine the weekend Jumbles and say that the advice they seem to be giving us is to “SMOOCH with OOMPH!”

    • Hey Steve. You never know what’s coming! It’s only the 1st of the month! Smooch with Oomph, Hot sisters…Where are we headed? Is this some of that Seasonal β€œAFFECTION” Disorder? πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Hi Angela – I Iove “Seasonal Affection Disorder”! I think that must occur in Spring, though, with the “young man’s fancy” and all, and “Disorder” may be a very appropriate term.

        In reading your reply to Earl, I wondered whether you could identify this movie (small quiz question here) and off what landmass the scene takes place — on board ship, a Chinese man, probably the cook, sees something, thinks for a second, then starts running around shouting “ALL HANDS ON DECK, EVERYBODY ON DECK, ALL HANDS ON DECK, EVERYBODY ON DECK!!!” (Too easy?)

        • Glad you like it! But I’m pretty sure it applies to any season…Disorder being what it is!
          King Kong, right? Charlie the cook? πŸπŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Thanks Steve.. As I said to Betty yesterday, some words are fun to play with and make my self-appointed task easier. Maybe I should come up with something which stands for “self-appointed task” sapT??
      Also thanks for the Joni Mitchell lyrics—I wasn’t familiar with that song.

      • Earl, yesterday after I said “Spectacular sentence. Talking about the RHYTHM of the street made me want to live there and an OOMPH of energy dispelling the lethargy was uplifting,” I think you said those kind words to me. Good luck thinking of a title worthy of your sentences.

  8. Hi, all! I enjoyed reading all of your comments on our new, lovely site.
    Thanks, Mike! Great job!!
    Words solved during breakfast, got the answer immediately after asking daughter to brainstorm 3 letter words with me & she said ALL.
    Now to a battle with our tall stack of junk mail, hoping I win the battle.

    • Hi Lelia. Perfect puzzle for a Sunday. Easy and laid back. Enjoy your day! πŸ‚πŸ™‹πŸ»

  9. Good afternoon. Today when I went outside to get my New York News I was surprised to see the Times instead. How that happened I’ll never know. So unable to do the puzzle today. Until tomorrow stay well

    • The Times! For a Brooklyn boy, born and bred…? Say it ain’t so, Paul! You can’t even fold the da-n thing without getting whiplash! Sorry about that. But if you’d like, here’s the link to the puzzle on line. At least you won’t need a course in origami! Have a great night…πŸ‚πŸπŸ™‹πŸ»
