SHE KEPT HER GLOVES BY THE DOOR SO THEY WOULD BE – – –
AADCNSTHEOL = CLOSE AT HAND
Good morning everyone and happy Wednesday! The first three clue words came instantly into view leaving me to struggle a bit with ENROLL. In the back of my mind I kept thinking that I’ve seen this clue word before but it just wouldn’t come to me. It finally popped into mind on my second cup of coffee and I was ready and determined to swiftly finish the puzzle.
Looking at the cartoon, we see a woman near an open door with the wind blowing in at her back. She appears to have forgotten her gloves as she was either coming in or leaving to take her dog for a walk. If you think about it, she was most likely leaving but a case could be argued that she was just coming home or quickly came back after forgetting them. Either way, the cartoon was pretty basic with only two details worth noting. Jeff did a great job with the woman’s reflection in the mirror, and you could make out the faint outline of her hand, face, and the collar of her coat. The second detail would be the little jacket on the dog. I’ve tried to put one my 7 pound Dachshund but he kept nipping at it during the whole walk. It wasn’t worth the headache so he’s been walking au naturel ever since.
The solve was a bit tricky for me and I tried to attack the 2-letter word first. There were several options such as ON, AT, TO and DO. With nothing coming to mind, I somehow saw HAND and crossed out the letters. CLOSE came next leaving AT for the finish. It wasn’t the swift finish I had hoped for, but a solve is a solve and I’ll happily try and redeem myself tomorrow.
