THE RAILROAD HIRED A NEW CEO TO HELP GET ITS BUSINESS —
KAKCABCNTRO = BACK ON TRACK
Good Monday morning my friends and welcome back to another week of Jumble fun! CEMENT was the only word that slowed me down this morning making it my pick for the most difficult word. Moving along to the cartoon, we find ourselves in an office at the train station where a new CEO is being introduced to the rest of the executives. The name “Sir Topham Hatt” seemed very familiar to me for some reason and I thought about how I knew it while preparing breakfast. The answer hit me like a ton of bricks as I was spreading cream cheese on my bagel and I paused to smile with delight. Sir Topam Hatt is the manager of the North Western Railway in the children’s cartoon “Thomas & Friends”. If you look at the cartoon very closely, you can see Thomas the Tank Engine in the background with his face on the front of the engine! My son was a huge fan of the cartoon when he was younger and it was really fun to see Jeff use these characters in his cartoon. The solve was quick and took no effort after writing out the clue letters. Have a wonderful Monday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!
Today’s shoutout goes to Angela! As many of you know, Angela is a regular contributor to the forum and fills in occasionally when life gets in the way and I’m unable to post the words. She always posts a fun and pun-tastic write up for each puzzle that brings a smile to our faces every morning. Many people don’t understand how difficult it is keeping this ship afloat and her tireless efforts and behind the scenes emails keep our ship sailing smoothly. Thank you for all of your hard work, Angela, and I couldn’t do it without you. You’ve become a close friend and here’s to many, many more years of Jumble fun! 🙂
