NIHTK – THINK

FARET – AFTER

MOSTOH – SMOOTH

GULJEG – JUGGLE

CARTOON ANSWER:

HE WASN’T SURE HOW MUCH SANDPAPER HE’D NEED, BUT HE HAD A – – 

THIAERSMOTUGE – ROUGH ESTIMATE

Good Morning, Everyone!      🚪TABLE FOR TWO…?🚪

🎶Stranded at the drivin’, branded a fool…What will they say Monday at school?
SANDY, can’t you see I’m in misery? We made a start, now we’re apart, there’s nothing left for me…Love has flown, all alone, I sit…I wonder why yi-yi-yi,
Oh why, you left me…Oh SANDY, SANDY, SANDY...Why yi-yi-yi? Oh SANDY🎶

🚪I recently was sanding an old door that we had found,
The surface getting SMOOTHer as the Garnet in it ground.
On the sawhorse did I JUGGLE, this beautiful piece of wood
My friend saying, “Go slower, is what I THINK you should”…
Cause I tend to get excited with the sawdust and the grit
And AFTER find my finish time was just ROUGH ESTIMATE! 🚪

Today’s words, typical Monday fare, were easy, breezy, and I smiled at AFTER…after yesterday. LUMBERing over to our cartoon, we find ourselves in the lumber section of a Home Improvement store. LOWEs and behold, we see our man, DEPOT looking for SANDPAPER. Sandpaper, despite its name, isn’t made of sand. It’s made of either Aluminum Oxide or Garnet, which are abrasive minerals. The store clerk, WOODY, is AXEing DEPOT how big the table is he’s working on. But DEPOT’s like..”I’m KNOT really sure.” Hmm. He looks a little BOARD. I’m thinking if he really wanted this job to go SMOOTHly, he WOOD have had the details a little more inGRAINed into his thoughts. PLANE and simple…But that’s DUST me. If I don’t have all my details hASHed out before I begin, I’d sooner TABLE the whole job. But anyway, WOODY, trying not to let DEPOT RUB him the wrong way, and not wanting to sound ABRASIVE, is trying to help him decide how much he needs to take HOME. DEPOT doesn’t have an exact MEASUREMENT, so they’ll have to go with a …ROUGH ESTIMATE! Get it? ROUGH? MAPLE KNOT? ..No, you get it. Good one, David, in my oPINEion! OAK-ky, eye candy. I see some SAWS hanging on the WALL..NUT that though. I’m going with WOODY’s eyebrows. A little wild…I think they could use some SHAPING! So, There you have it FOAKS, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And don’t ever be afraid to try a WOODWORKING project...YEW can NAIL it in no time…🚪🙋🏻

  1. If you THINK you are SMOOTH and can JUGGLE, slip away quietly AFTER dropping the balls.
    For some reason, AFTER slowed me down but the solution was obvious so I “backed” into the answer. I guess I was reluctant to put an A at the beginning.
    I’ll read your tome when I return from volunteering, Angela, or if I get a chance on my break. Later.

  2. Good morning. He did juggle the books and even though,I think it will all smooth over after awhile. I agree the hardest of all the words was After. It was the last word I got. The cartoon answer was not that hard. I got Rough right away but took some time to get Estimate. Another great start on a new week. Angela,you do have true grit. It would take me hours to come up with all them puns. Nice work,between you and Earl,I’m left with a smile on my face Until tomorrow stay well.

  3. AFTER taking some time to THINK through the project, the novice woodworker realized it wouldn’t be wise to JUGGLE the order of grits if he wanted to obtain a really SMOOTH finish on his table.

    Never tried this before. Don’t worry Earl and Angela, I won’t be giving you a run for your money on a daily basis. A ROUGH ESTIMATE of the time it takes to do so led me to conclude that it would cut too much into dog walking time!

    Easy Monday puzzle; blind solve and instant ordering of words except for AFTER. I had to loop back on that one for some reason.

  4. HI, all! Solving the cartoon answer was SMOOTH & easy for me today, but I had to JUGGLE my scrabble tiles around to finally get the word AFTER. I THINK a ROUGH ESTIMATE of how long it took was between 3 & 5 minutes, counting taking bites of egg & toast.

    When I was very young I spent hours trying to juggle 3 little balls but could never do more than 2. When our kids were little, I bought a couple of juggling kits with instruction booklets “guaranteed” to teach you to juggle; one with 3 balls and one with 3 cube-shaped bean bags. I tried those for hours, still have them in the game closet, and still cannot juggle 3 things.

    Enjoy your day. Do not juggle too many tasks.

  5. Hi all – I’ll JOIN the club here; of COARSE I didn’t get the second word until AFTER all the others. My favorite detail is way in the back – is that a cashier running a big old-fashioned cash register? I can almost smell the wooden floorboards.

    Too bad I can’t tell you my grandfather’s joke about selecting a file at the hardware store – you’re on your own with that.

    Have a great day!

    • Hi, Steve! Busy morning! Trip to grocery store, home for lunch, & baked sugar cookies to warm the kitchen.

      Enjoyed your comments. Welcome to the AFTER club. After what? After hours? The only “after” song I can think of is “After You’ve Gone.” Not a cheerful song for a club but I like it anyway.

      My brain is worn out from trying to think of a joke that would go with selecting a file at the hardware store, so off I go for a long winter’s nap in March.
