Good Morning, Everyone! Β  Β  Β  πŸ’ͺ🏻 WEIGHT A MINUTE…πŸ’ͺ🏻

🎢DISTRACTIONS like butterflies are buzzing ’round my head…When I’m alone, I think of you, and the things we’d do if we could only be through with these DISTRACTIONS …Like butterflies are buzzing ’round my head, when I’m alone, I think of you….And the life we’d lead if we could only be free from these DISTRACTIONS…🎢

πŸ’ͺ🏻 Disheveled and distracted, he gets into the gym
His life is one big BLURRY mess, but hey, this just is him.
A BLIMP could fly over his head, he may not even see
He’s looking at his phone and thinking of some LUXURY.
His mind is always racing, decisions over rated
He worries ’bout the silliest things..like if an APP is DATED
He’s always running here and there..and people start to tell…
This guy is really out of it…This guys a real DUMBBELL! πŸ’ͺ🏻

We’ve seen today’s words before, but I’d say BLURRY may be the one word to cause a tic or two. Our cartoon…The use of the word Idiot, and Jeff showing us the DUMBBELL hitting the guys foot, WEIGHed heavily towards giving us today’s solve. With or without our letters. It was one of those puzzles that I call a gift. Ok, eye candy. I love Jeff’s use of motion showing the bouncing Dumbbell. I like the cell phone in one hand and the spilling water bottle in the other showing how distracted our boy is. But what got me today are the two earrings our guy is sporting in his right ear. Ring a DING DING! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And remember, one can always SPOT the DUMBBELL…It’s TRAINING yourself not to say it out loud that EXERCISES RESTRAINT…πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. Riding in the DATED LUXURY BLIMP offered a spectacular but BLURRY view of Victoria Falls.
    Monday puzzles are often the easiest of the week and this one gave me no difficulty. The cartoon offered all the clues necessary for a quick solution. Interesting that none of the clue words is a verb—-all adjectives and one noun.
    Have a good week everyone—off to volunteer.

    • Good Morning, Earl. Great sentence and great observation regarding today’s words. Hope your day goes well. πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Ooh, a rare chance to go all pedantic on Earl! I believe LUXURY can be an adjective or noun, as in β€œlife of luxury”, or β€œlap of luxury.”
      You always have my carte blanche to return the favor, Earl; I often learn something interesting when you do. πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

      • Steve–I mst be missing something? I think I used LUXURY as an adjective, along with DATED and BLURRY. That leaves BLIMP as the sole noun. What surprised me was that there were no verbs today. When two three of the words are verbs, I have a tough time. Don’t worry about being pedantic, I have more than one human frailty. Just glad that some people take the time to read my efforts. πŸ€” πŸ“ πŸ‘πŸΎ

      • Duh– I get it now. You were pointing out that luxury CAN be a noun, forgive for being obtuse!

  2. Good morning. Angela do you ever sleep.? I see Earl posted early as well,but I believe he has three hours on you. I’m waitin at NYU Hosp for a CAD in native artery. I failed the stress test back in Nov. this will be the third time in 10-12 years. All others were ok. Let’s hope this is the same. Hope your feeling better Angela. Until tomorrow stay well

    • Good Morning, Paul. Saying a prayer for you, Brooklyn. I’m sure you’ll do fine. Check in when you’re done. Talk to you later, Bud. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. This one was insulting Family!!!! Did Mr. Hoyt think we were dumbbells??? I figured out the riddle before I even did the words which I did in 15 secs. He knows better. I guess he wanted to give us a break.

    Still Love Him though!!!

  4. Must be cardiac Monday as I’m going in for a reg 12 month echocardiogram checkup later this morning.Blurry gave me a moment to pause as I was trying to make it into burrly instead,but when I needed another L for dumbbell ,blurry came into view.

    • Good Morning, Chuck. I agree that BLURRY may be the word to TEAR up the scenery a bit today. HEART❀️felt wishes for good luck with your checkup. Have a great day! πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»

  5. Chagrined that I didn’t have a blind solve this morning, since the answer was so obvious in retrospect. All of the words were a breeze, however. One would be hard pressed to disguise LUXURY!

  6. Hi all – I’ll be happy to assume the role of DUMBBELL today since I had to write the letters. I also had to jettison the thought that BURRLY is what you would become while walking through thistles before seeing BLURRY.

    Having the water shoot out of the bottle when the weight hit the guy’s toe was an inspired detail – Ouch!

    Have a great day, and heartfelt good wishes to Paul and John.

      • You are correct sir, thank you! Although you are also welcome to good wishes anytime. This must be Dr. Monday; I’m also taking my wife to a routine appointment this PM.

      • Hey John. Did you see what I left you early this morning? I definitely screwed the shows up, but I found the info that caused me to blur Franz. Hope you’re having a good day! πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Just saw that, Angela. They were BOTH great shows. Didn’t remember that Franz had played a character on HSB. No wonder you got confused!

        • Yes, they were. Two characters actually. You’re kind, but there’s a whole lot more that leads to my confusion! LOL..Have a good one, John! πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Grasshopper. There’s no Dumbbells in residence here, never will be…Water,Water, everywhere…WATER the odds! Have a good one, Bud! πŸ™‹πŸ»

  7. Hi, all! Solved the cartoon as I read it even though I wholeheartedly disagreed. I liked the pun but would not call the injured one a dumbbell, especially with an unfriendly facial expression & dialog. I would immediately ask, β€œAre you alright? Need some ice for that foot?” This sounded to me like a previous cartoon of the grumpy giraffe speaking rudely to the rhino.

    No trouble with the clue words, but Mrs. Never Won a Spelling Bee, after getting LUXURY immediately, looked it up to check the spelling.

    Steve, it is NOT A BALLOON, it is a BLIMP! (You saw that one coming.)

    • Must not have been awake, didn’t see it coming. But look out, β€œIt’s an AIRSHIP!” πŸ˜‚

    • Hi Lelia. I agree. Some people just can’t WEIGHT to criticize. Have a great day! πŸ™‹πŸ»
