ITLSLASTLENGE – TELL-TALE SIGNS
Good Morning, Everyone! 👻 SIGN Me Up! 👻
🎶There’s a GHOST out in the hall…There’s a GHOUL beneath the bed
Now it’s coming through the walls …Now it’s coming down the stairs
Is that SCARY for you baby? Am I SCARY for you oh, Is it SCARY for you baby?
Is it SCARY for you..?🎶
👻💀The TITLE of the book’s not shown, I wonder if it’s grim
The scary and the macabre’s attributed to him…
He’s written a short story, it’s SLANT we can’t be sure
But signs that show his name alone will get them through the door…
Wherever Stephen King appears it’s sure to draw a crowd
And this is so exciting, ’cause he’s reading this aloud
His works are VASTLY noted, books of murder and revenge
And stories of the dark side where the characters AVENGE.
So fans of his will gather, for they know the date and time
They’re happy that they store displayed so many TELL-TALE SIGNS! 💀👻
None of today’s words are new to us Jumble fans, and notice how the letters in the word AVENGE are anagrammed in order right to left. We don’t see that very often. Our cartoon. Jeff brings us to a local bookstore, where two men and a woman are discussing an upcoming event. Stephen King, the noted author, is being announced as having a short-story reading later that day. He’s TELLing a new TALE. The posters, each displayed on THE STAND, state that the reading will begin at 3PM. The three patrons are so excited, no MISERY here! They’re in JOYLAND! Our question asks how they knew the time…Because of the TELL-TALE SIGNS! Good play on words, Dave, we caught your meaning. We’re DREAMCATCHERs! Ok, eye candy…Jeff’s done a remarkable job of capturing Mr King’s likeness. Kudos, Jeff! The panel’s pretty straightforward, bookshelves, a few chairs set up, a stool for Mr King. But in the background, on the right side, is a section of books with the heading:“GAMES AND PUZZLES”! The NEEDFUL THINGS…We all need our puzzles! So, There you have it, Folks. Done!
Have a great day, Everyone! I wish you a day free from DESPERATION, a night free from INSOMNIA, and a whole lot of (The) SHINING in between! 👻🙋🏻
