CARTOON ANSWER: THE VIKINGS WERE JUST ABOUT HOME AFTER A LONG...
RIWRPOTDE – “ROWED” TRIP
Good Morning, Everyone! 🐉 DRAGON Ourselves Back Home? 🐉
🎶Oh my life feels unreal, my CRIME an illusion a scene badly written in which I must play….And thought it puts me up tight to leave you, I know it’s not right to leave you…When morning is just a few hours away. But I’ve got to creep down the alley way, fly down the highway…before they come to catch me I’ll be gone.
Somewhere they can’t find me…🎶
🐉🐉 The “Hersir” standing in our pic and calling to his wife,
Has just returned from pillaging, as this was Viking life.
They’d board these ships, their “drekis”, and sail off from a WHARF
And travel where the riches were, for months they would be off…
This isn’t stuff of POETRY, these farmers were quite crude,
With axes, clubs and shields, attacks were a DELUGE.
They’d steal another’s riches…monasteries, merchants ships,
And once the wealth was taken, back to home they all would slip.
This isn’t very pleasant, no hearts or ROBINs here
These men were on a mission, and their message was quite clear…
Set off for greener pastures, beat and steal then load the ship…
And return to their villages…just one more long “ROWED” TRIP 🐉🐉
Today’s words…ROBIN? How ironic, huh? We’ve got some serious Robbing going on here today…But looking at those 5 little letters? First quick glance? Show of hands…Inborn? And DELUGE? Did it make you come Unglued for a moment or two? Great anagrams. POETRY really didn’t take much RHYME, and WHARF did apPIER right away. These words aren’t new..but they may have STOLEN a bit of your time this morning…Ok, on to the main feature…Our cartoon. Today, Jeff’s taken us back to days of social unrest…Did I say “back to”? Hmm. We see a VIKING ship, known as a dreki, returning from a raid. Our Hersir, Hagar, is seen greeting his wife, Olga. Olga’s just tickled pink, isn’t she? And wouldn’t you know it, of all days, she’s dressed in black. Pink would have gone so much better today, but nope, she’s wearing black. Our men working those oars, farmers and hunters by trade, look as disgruntled as one might expect. OAR maybe they’re just tired. Let’s face it, Folks, beating and pillaging can be exhausting. Oddly enough though, the last man, on the right, has the biggest grin on his face. He’s the only one who’s face isn’t DRAGON down to the floor. And he’s looking up at the Dragon head of the ship, which looks very angry. I have to be honest here, Folks, I have no clue. Why does this man look so happy? Inquiring minds want to know…Jeff? Perhaps come on BOARD and let us know? Ok, let’s dock this ship…Hagar’s saying..”We’re back”, we see our men ROWING…The Vikings are home after a long…”ROWED” TRIP! Boom! Drop anchor, Folks, we’re docking! Great pun, David! You’ve STOLEN the show once more! Ok, eye candy. We’ve got two of the horned helmets, and a mixed bag of rounded helmets and what looks like a fisherman’s cap. And then, once again is our Happy Viking. I’m going to call him ARNE. Because ARNE we dying to know why he’s grinning? And, what is that he’s wearing? A stocking cap? Anyway, none of this headgear is COVERing it. But if we look closely, Hagar and Olga are wearing bracelets. Hers is engraved with X’s. His with O’s. X’s and O’s? Hugs and Kisses? ARNE you kidding me? So, There you have it, Folks, Done!
Have a great day, Everyone. I still can’t get over relating pillaging to Hugs andKisses…NORSE CODE, perhaps?? 🐉🙋🏻
