Good Morning, Everyone!      💤 YOUR EYES ARE GETTING HEAVY…VERY HEAVY..💤 

🎶 I put a spell on you…’cause you’re mine…You better stop the things you do
I ain’t lyin’…No I ain’t lyin’…You know I can’t stand it You know I can’t stand it
You’re runnin’ around…You know better daddy. I can’t stand it cause you put me down..I put a spell on you…Because you’re mine….You’re mine 🎶

💤💤 Like flying isn’t bad enough, imagine having this?
A hypnotist to tell you that you’re in a state of bliss…
Nobody on your shoulder, no babies crying loud
No bathroom line to choke a horse…”I’m after this whole crowd”?
No matter what may happen, there will never be a panic…
Cause here on board, look what we have hypnosis “TRANCE”-ATLANTIC!💤💤

Yes, I was entranced! Clever, very clever, and great pun…But did they put me under?Not a chance! Hypnosis=TRANCE! Don’t blink, you’ll miss it! Ok, maybe you blinked at ACCEPT? But the rest…💤💤 Our cartoon…Let’s FLY over for the solution…We’re aboard a plane, maybe crossing the ocean. A hypnotist on board, Sammy Kaye, for some reason is hypnotizing the passengers. It seems to be working, because everyone is shown with those droopy cartoon eyes that signify sleepiness…including the flight attendant. Our question is stating that the hypnotist works both in Europe and North America..You know, Trans-Atlantic? Are you falling asleep yet? What was he? “TRANCE”-ATLANTIC! Well give me one of the drinks …so I can explain while I’m clucking like a chicken! This was a regular flight of fancy! Good one, David! Eye candy? I’m going with Sammy’s eyes…Beady little things…and those eyebrows…sinister looking things…Had enough right there to put me under…So, There you have it there, Folks! Done! Have a great day, and today, there’s a little twist. Who can guess why I named our hypnotist Sammy Kaye? 💤 🙋🏻

  1. Good morning. The words were not an instant solve but not that hard. Let’s just say they were “just right”. At first looking at the cartoon I couldn’t bear the thought of another one in quotation marks. But,on this Rainy day I did Accept the challenge and Invite my inner thoughts and Latch on to a final conclusion. Therefore,my outcome was a triumphant success. I sort of went into my own trance. Nothing and I mean nothing,would fail me today. Nice job again Angela. You are pun-tastic. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. The trance did you well! I love the sentence, and I love the fact that you’re getting over the “Quotation Trepidation”! They’re such tiny little things! They got nothin’ on you, Bud! Thanks for the shout out, but today I feel I fell way SHORT OF THE RUNWAY! Have a good one, Bud! 💤🙋🏻

  2. Good morning Angela. Are you thinking about a Danny Kaye movie. Somehow I remember one of his outrageous films where he hypnotized himself? Maybe “Court Jester”. Not sure though.

    • Hey Paul. Good guess. Close, but no cigar..as we say in Brooklyn….Uh, no, wait a minute…not close..Not Danny Kaye. Sammy Kaye. …Maybe I’m wrong? LOL..Not the first time, definitely won’t be the last….!!😂🙋🏻


      • Good morning again and again. It’s amazing how I read your blog and saw Danny Kaye not Sammy Kaye. Now I’m going to have to google him because I’m totally lost on who he is. Sorry you didn’t pick up on my goldilocks reference about being just right. Sometimes I’m over the top with my thoughts thinking everybody can pick up on what I mean. Take care.

      • Paul, I apologize. I did pick on the Goldilocks reference, immediately. I just didn’t mention it. Not one of my favorite fairy tales. And as far as being over the top, you’re fine. I think so far out of the box, and speak so fast in fractured sentences, that half the time I’m forced to explain myself to people. You may have seen me tell Steve that I hear…”Where do you come up with this s–t “? at least 3-4 times a day!!!😂😂 I’m sooooo used to it…So we’re not “conventional” thinkers! Who cares? Sammy Kaye. A catch phrase I’d guess you call it. Something my Father used to say a lot. It just came to mind as soon as I saw the cartoon…But…then again….I don’t think like most people, soooo!!! 😂😂 🙋🏻


      • Brooklyn…Did you realize that after you said ” just right”, in your next sentence you used the phrase…I couldn’t “BEAR” the thought? 😉 You’re a closet punster!!! Was it intentional? And I missed it on my first read. I told you my head’s on backwards today… (as my Grandmother used to say…Actually, she said “back ways”…her broken English was hysterical)! Good one, Bud! 🙋🏻


  3. Earl…I didn’t want to let you down…The brain is totally addled this morning, my house is overrun with workman since before the crack of dawn, and it’s pouring rain, with fog to match my thinking…Not my best effort…but, for you…😘🙋🏻

    💤 A RAINY day, you board a plane, you’re thinking all is well
    You never know who INVITEs who to turn your trip to hell.
    You’d never ACCEPT things like this if you were on the ground…
    But now up here, what can you do? It’s starting to confound…
    You LATCH on to your iPad, cause the movie is Titanic…
    Although it might be better than this guy who’s “TRANCE”-ATLANTIC” 💤

  4. I INVITE you to ACCEPT this LATCH key to unlock the shelter on a very RAINY day.
    I thought I had a blind solve with “Trance continental” until I noticed there was no O in the circled letters,
    . Back to the drawing board and on my second try, got it. Clever pun, great cartoon.
    Angela your song was great but my first thought was “Fly me to the moon…….”
    Your poem is fine, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
    No comments of flying experiences. Most of mine were in the passenger friendly 60s, 70s and early 80s. Now? Avoid it if I can.

    • Good Morning, Earl. LATCH key calls for a 👏🏻! I wanted to go with a LATCH on a suitcase, but the rhyme was THROWING ME OFF! . I may go back to it once my head clears up. Great sentence, to fit today’s weather… I FLEW through the puzzle, it was the music and the meter that caused the TURBULENCE. Nothing started “playing” this morning, until I thought of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. I never cared much for the song, but it fit the FLIGHT PATTERN! And I agree, the pun is very clever. I very much like your song choice, (you know I do anything Sinatra, (BMH)), but I think I’ll hold off until they give us Elon Musk! Then it’s all yours…Thanks for the shout out, and as for the flying? If it ain’t First Class, I’ll pass! Have a good one, Sir! Stay out of the storm! 💤🙋🏻


      • Angela forget first class. You haven’t lived till your with a bunch of guys sitting in a hammock aboard a C47 transport plane and hearing the pilot and copilot talking on the radio trying to figure out why they dropped a thousand feet and have no idea why. Then one says what’s this knob for and the other guy says,don’t have a clue. it’s my first time flying in this and the pilot says “me too”. We were flying to Guantanamo Bay. Fun time.

      • Paul…You had me all FUELED UP with the bunch of guys in the hammock…until you went to the C47…that’s when I knew it was time to BAIL OUT! Like I wasn’t nauseous enough today! 😂 I keep telling you, Brooklyn, you got “eight million stories..” in you. You need to write them down for your kids…or for me! And here’s another quiz for you…What show is that line in quotes from? 🙋🏻


    • Nice job Earl on the use of the words. You never fail to come through. I too had the same thought regarding trance continental at first. Yes Angela, I put the bear in to make it a little easier to get. I googled Sammy Kaye and found out he was an American Band Leader and wrote Harbor Lights which I love besides other nice songs. I listened to Faith Hills “This Kiss” also nice but still have others to check out from a few days ago.

      • Hey Paul. Yes, he was a band leader in the Big Band era. His band was called SWING and SWAY, and his catch phrase was “Swing and Sway with Sammy Kaye”.,So when I saw the swinging watch this morning, that’s what came to mind. I told you I think of the strangest things! He produced some great pieces of music, and 🎶Harbor Lights🎶 Is a beautiful song. And I’m glad you liked 🎶This Kiss🎶…So, there you have it! Answer to the question! Oh, and the bear 🐻 was very clever! 🙋🏻


    • Earl….I wrote one with LATCH re-worked. And I wrote these two sentences in the manner of Crypto-Quips, something I’ve started to experiment with…🙋🏻

      Aboard the flight he sits and feels his consciousness fade way…
      And looking out the window at this dark and RAINY day…
      He can’t help it but wonder if this INVITE was a ruse,
      And is this intervention for the scared and the recluse?
      They can’t ACEEPT that he’s ok with living with his fears…
      Let’s face it…it’s been going on for more than twenty years!
      But they talked him into flying… he agreed this flight to catch…
      (Even though his only suitcase has a rusted broken LATCH)…
      And now he has an inkling that they fooled him, and he’ll panic…
      He agreed to an one hour flight…not this whole “TRANCE”-ATLANTIC!

      Once he decided to ACCEPT the INVITE to the “RAINY BRAINY”, he realized he’d need to repair the LATCH on his Filofax…He’d hate to have them think he was an OPEN BOOK.

      It wasn’t a RAINY day, yet he still couldn’t LATCH on and ACCEPT the fact that his Pool Party INVITE wasn’t lost in the mail…Who needs FAIR WEATHER friends like this…?


      • Entertaining and exciting sentences—I’ve never heard of Crypto-quips before. Where did you find out about them? Or am I just in “Stormy Weather” and not keeping up?
        Hope no one reads that as Stormy Daniels!!

      • Thank you very much! 🎶Stormy Weather🎶 How great a song is that? Lena Horne’s rendition? Phew! (And the other Stormy…LOL..She’s raining on the parade, huh)?
        The Quip…They may be online somewhere from certain newspapers, I’m not sure. My friend in Indiana Email’s it to me in the morning. You’re given a clue letter, and the rest are up to you to guess. It’s just like Crypto-quote, except the answer is usually a pun or a “quip”. Here’s yday’s. He hasn’t sent me today’s yet. Must have been a good night! 😉 Take a look, and I’ll send you the answer when you ask….🙋🏻



  5. Hi, all! At first glance I thought, “Gracious, if 14 letters is supposed to be a medium difficulty middle-of-the-week Wednesday solve, then what in the world are we going to face on Friday?” However, with the info that they were on a plane crossing the Atlantic Ocean, I crossed ATLANTIC off the letters, which left TRANCE for an easy solve after all. My hardest word was LATCH.

    Enjoy your day at work or play, and I’ll see you tomorrow.

    • Hi Lelia. I wonder if that rule holds true. Today’s may have looked a little ominous at first, but ended up being easier than we thought. I think they change it up on us every once in a while just to keep things interesting! 😉 Have an enTRANCIing day! 🙋🏻


  6. Hi all – Seems like two C’s appear together lately, so ACCEPT was quick. LATCH took a couple of extra looks. Then I thought FLIGHT for the first word, but no ‘F’ was there. Wrote down the first six letters and then saw the answer.

    Well, the guy in front won’t be affected, because he’s already hypnotized himself with his iPhone and earbuds, and Sammy better make sure the flight attendant puts down the tray before there’s an awful mess.

    It seems Jeff has created a variation on a familiar phrase – the Mesmerist is ”Foot-LESS and fancy free.”

    Haven’t looked it up yet, Angela, so I’ll bite – is he Sammy Kaye because his watch is swinging and swaying? I am absolutely ENTRANCED by your song choice today, “I put a spell on you.”! Still chilling to this day, and HOW did a record like this ever even get made in the straight-laced fifties, let alone become a Top 40 hit? Here’s another –

    🎵”They say there’s a place down in Mexico
    Where a man can fly over mountains and hills
    And he don’t need an airplane or some kind of engine
    And he never will.
    Now you know it’s a meaningless question
    To ask if those stories are right
    ‘Cause what matters most is the feeling
    You get when you’re hypnotized
    Seems like a dream got me hypnotized”🎵

    A much more prosaic “Riff from the Roof” at Peet’s today:
    🎵”I’ll light the fire
    While you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today
    Come unto me now and rest your head for just five minutes, everything is good
    Our house is a very, very, very fine house with two cats in the yard
    Life used to be so hard
    Now everything is easy ’cause of you”🎵
    I guess they’re just on a CSNY kick this week.
    Hope you enjoy your day, everyone.

    • You bit a little too late, G, because I already tipped my hand, and told Paul. But Kudos for the guess! 👏🏻 That song! First time I heard it, it scared the bejesus out of me. That leering laugh! I made my Father promise not to play it if I was around…I dislike it till this day…Fleetwood Mac would have FLOWN too…you know I never listen to them much anymore…Something to do with the Clintons…😉 but 🎶Don’t Stop🎶 suggesting…I’m open…🎶 Our House🎶…If I’m not mistaken, you told me once that you never watched Cheers, right? After a certain episode, I just couldn’t hear this song in quite the same way anymore…😂😂Look it up! …Always a pleasure, G. “We love to FLY…And it shows”! Have a good one! ✈️🙋🏻


  7. Swing and sway with Sammy Kaye.
    He was a big band leader back in ” the day”. I can remember my parents mentioning him occasionally.
