VNARE – RAVEN

MDTIA – ADMIT

TUROFH – FOURTH

RASCEO – COARSE

CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN THE HOUSE PAINTER CALLED IN SICK, ANOTHER PAINTER- – –

RVEDMIFOHCORE – COVERED FOR HIM 

Good Morning, Everyone!        🖌 50 SHADES OF RAY? 🖌

🎶 I don’t PAINT myself into corners anymore, in a brittle heart of clay, I threw my BRUSHES away….The tools of the trade that chained your memory to me are out the door…I don’t PAINT myself into corners anymore…🎶

🖌 Today we see three painters, with rollers in their hands
The FOURTH one sick is leaving a void within this band
The one with RAVEN hair named Mike, is asking where is Bill
The other pony-tailed painter says, “I’ve got time to kill…”
Yes I ADMIT I made that up, it’s not what we can see
But rhyming all these words each day is far from that easy…
We see that Ray is willing to double up the task
Not getting rude or COARSE at all, and he’s not even asked…
The job will still go smoothly, they’ll paint the walls and trim
Cause Ray stood up and with a smile simply COVERED FOR HIM! 🖌

So, we’ve made it to Friday, and we really haven’t been PAINTED into a corner. The week’s words have been a good MIX of easy, breezy with maybe a slight BRUSH with a STICKler or two. And today’s words FINISH out the week with the same TONE. We’ve seen them before, and we’ve come through with flying COLORS! So, on to our cartoon. We’re being told that four men were hired to PAINT a house. Mike, Bill, Ray, and RED. We see Mike, asking Ray, “Where’s Bill”. We see RED, indifferently just ROLLing along. We learn that Bill has called in sick. Not looking to get CANned from the job, Ray has offered to do his share of the work. No big deal, He just BRUSHES it off. Our question asks, what did one PAINTER do when the other called in sick…he COVERED FOR HIM! Good one, David, I like what HUE did there! Ok, the eye candy. This is a ROUGH one today. We have the Bucket, the Tray, the Drop Cloth. We have the GREEN  Paint. There’s the little Hook on Ray’s pants. Mike has one too, with a RAG attached. IDK, it’s just not very COLORful…Maybe I’ll just COAT over it for today…So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! It’s Friday…Get out there and PAINT the town RED!🖌🙋🏻

  1. The language the RAVEN mimicked was very COARSE and his FOURTH owner had to ADMIT he was partly responsible.
    Clue words were not a challenge but the length of the solution gave me pause. At first I thought one of the two letter words would be “his” rather than him. I had to stare at the cartoon and think about words associated with painting before I got the solution. Great play on words and NO pun.
    I’ll have to Goggle your song today, Angela, I don’t recognize it but it certainly fits with today’s cartoon.
    I’m glad I don’t try to rhyme the clue words—and I admire your ability to brush up your Shakespeare and give us sheer poetry every day.

    • Good Morning, Earl. So that RAVEN had some COLORFUL language, huh? 😂 Great sentence! I like the word play use also, the solution was a good one. Today I glanced at that first, and had it COVERED…Then I RED the words…Cute, easy puzzle all around…TBT, Earl, rhyming with the puzzle theme, and the days words sometimes makes me BLUE, and I see RED! It can definitely be a challenge. Thanks for mentioning it. And thanks for the shout out. You got two good ones in there, and you’ve STROKEd my ego! 😉 My song today is Tricia Yearwood. ..🎶 I Don’t Paint Myself Into Corners…🎶 I’ve always liked the TONE of her voice! Have a good one, Earl…🖌🙋🏻

  2. Good morning. Wait just a darn minute. All we know is that Bill was out sick! Is this some new math. How did we get the other guys names i.e.:”Mike,Red and Ray.”Am I missing something? Just all in jest! Great job as always Angela and thank you for your vote of confidence yesterday. You gave me a good laugh. That little loop on the side of the pants(usually coveralls) is for a hammer. Still have a pair of my fathers. I guess the pill didn’t work so great today. I was stuck on the last word and didn’t get it until I solved the cartoon answer which took some minutes to get. The letters I had gave me For Him so it was just a matter of getting the first word. Once I got that I had the letters I needed for the last word. I had to Admit that the flying Coarse layed out for the Raven was especially tough for the Fourth and final run. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn! My RAY of Sunshine! You know, I failed to mention that the name Mike is embroidered on the guys shirt…I took my HUE from him, and RAN with it! I went with RAY because I was already laughing at the “50 SHADES of..”, and RED..well, I couldn’t call him VIOLET, could I? 😂 You know how I do like to PAINT a picture! As for the new Math? Me? No, Bud, COUNT me out! Ok, the loop. Not only do I have two pair of my own, I too still have two of my Father’s! There’s definitely a STROKE of serendipity between you and I, Paul. With Caroline’s comment, you now make 6 people so far that got stuck on COARSE..I hope by now though, it’s RUN its COURSE! And as for that smart pill…? I guess it just kicked in a little late, because your sentence is a winner! Y’day? JEEZ, it was nothin’! Hang in there, Brooklyn! You help COLOR my world! 🖌🙋🏻

      • As per you !! You had me ROTFL. You made my day. Regarding Manhattan Beach. Years ago you had to be rich to live there. There was a well known Judge that lived there and had lots of pull. The area was well patrolled. There also was the owner of Strieds Matzo there. The judge let you know who he was but the matzo owner was nice. Did you ever go swimming at the beach?

      • Brooklyn, you know I love it when you laugh! And as I’ve said before, you make my mornings brighter..The least I could do is try and do the same for you…
        Paul, as per me what? Your sentence? We can’t just BRUSH it off…It’s good! Swim at Manhattan Beach? Paul, we lived at Manhattan Beach! Day AND night! 😉 (That’s a WINK, Paul)!!!! I don’t remember the Matzo guy, but I think I remember talk about the “Judge’s house”. I’m talking late 70’s. We were all over those rocks!! 😉 It was so nice there, it still is. Changed somewhat, but still nice. My cousin lives down there, and my Dr is there. Both of them got destroyed by Sandy. You can’t imagine what it looked like. Any chance you went by there after Sandy? You just stood and cried…Anyway…Nice trip down Memory Lane, right? Keep ’em laughing, Brooklyn! 🙋🏻

      • Excuse me countess,lm texting with royalty. When I said as per:,I was referring to your ROFL. In my head I know what I’m thinking but others might not. My son tells me that all the time. No…….I never got back there after Sandy. But one of my friends had a house there and talked about the damsge. When his father passed away and he redid the house for sale he found over hundred thousand in one of the walls. That’s how he was able to afford the house in Manhattan Beach.

Although, last time I was at the dentist, and he said I needed a Crown…I did think…”See, finally somebody can tell”! 😂😂 I thought you were diminishing your comment…This can get so confusing, right? And we speak the same language, too..Brooklynese! Its the lack of inflection, no cadence…It’s ok, tho.

And would I explain..Jeez…Life shouldn’t be this hard, right? 😂😂 Yea, Manhattan Beach was buried under water and debris, what was left standing, anyway. ..So, I’m starting renovation soon…I’m going to check my walls…🙋🏻

  5. Hi, all! LOVED the cartoon because my real dad was a house painter. Glad I knew the answer because I needed the letters to back into COARSE, the only difficult word for me. Solving FOURTH, I saw “froth” for a second, but “U” know that I needed the “U.”

    One day a little old lady whom my dad had painted for before asked him if he could paint a room for her because she had company coming in a few days. He was really booked for 2 weeks, but decided to ask a friend to help him quickly do it Saturday morning. What he did not tell his friend was that the lady was stone deaf.

    Saturday morning, with both men standing on ladders, the little old lady opened a door and peeked in. After a while, she opened a different door & looked in. Without turning his face toward her, to his friend’s horror, my dad yelled, “You check on us one more time, lady, and I’ll slap you up side the head with this paint brush!”

    Steve, now you see from whom I learned to like “guy humor.”

    • Good one, Lelia! By coincidence, I was going to mention this guy-geezer humor this morning anyway – One of the comics I follow was about hearing aids yesterday, and a commenter said that his were so spiffy they had Bluetooth – so I asked him if his false teeth had Blue-eardrum.

      • Lelia – I mentioned to Caroline that there’s a comic called “That Is Priceless” which presents an old painting with a new funny caption. The comments often probably qualify as “guy humor” and irreverent, and often very funny in my opinion; you might like them.

      • Steve, thanks for That is Priceless. I just got back from lunch & shopping with daughter & she’s still here so I only had time to look at one which was Row, Row, Row Your Boat, which I thought was very funny & clever for someone to look at that beautiful painting & think of that funny “guy caption.”

        While in elementary school, we & cousins sang constantly when we got together for one week in the summer. That was a favorite until someone taught us:
        Propel, propel, propel your craft
        Placidly down the liquid solution.
        Ecstatically, ecstatically, ecstatically
        Existence is but an illusion.
