Good Morning, Everyone! 🏆 HAPPY FATHER’S DAY 🏆
🎶 You’re the end of the rainbow, my pot o’ gold, you’re DADDY’S Little Girl to have and hold….A precious gem is what you are, you’re Mommy’s bright and shining star, You’re the spirit of Christmas, my star on the tree, you’re the Easter bunny to Mommy and me…You’re sugar, you’re spice, you’re everything nice, and you’re DADDY’S Little Girl…🎶
🏆 When I grew up in Brooklyn, I would hear out in the street,
A phrase that always stuck with me, that others would repeat.
They’d say “Law of the Jungle” was the only way to go…
IMPALAs POUNCE is what I gleaned, the image my mind showed.
It seemed a whole lot DARKER than what I had learned at home…
My Father having taught me things like “All Roads Lead to Rome”…
So thinking that to SCORCH someone was how to get ahead,
Caused a HIATUS to come between the street and my homestead.
My Father taught me kindness and respect…the rule of thumb,
To meet and treat all equally, not look at ones’ INCOME…
And those became the principles, till this day never dimmed,
My Father taught me right from wrong…and I LOOKED UP TO HIM 🏆
Today’s words are a nice blend of the SHORT and the TALL. Easy, not so easy. I wouldn’t go so far as to say they’re hard, but we may have had to pull on that old thinking cap for one or two. I found them all to be Sweet Repeats, except for DARKER. It may be new. Yet somehow, it seems so familiar. But, as I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been doing the puzzles on the Just Jumble App for a while now, so I may have seen it there. One other thing I thought I’d mention is that today, the word HIATUS is printed here, and also on the 4-word version that a lot of our readers have in their papers, the Vintage Jumbles. I’m not sure if this is a first, but I did find it amusing. Ok, on to our solution! Today, I believe we find ourselves in Detroit, supposedly on FATHER’S DAY, at the home of the U-HAUL Family. We see a man, STRETCH say 30ish, slightly TALL, giving his Father, AVERAGE, AVI for SHORT, say late 50ish, average HEIGHT, a card. From the dialogue, we see that it’s hand made, just as the younger man made in his youth. We can see that the Avi is visibly moved, and Stretch goes on to say that his Father has always been his hero. In the background, the wife and Mother, CASSIE, CASE for SHORT, is seen…also visibly moved. There’s a lot of MOVING going on here, with this U-HAUL Family. Our question states…Even though the son was now TALLER than his FATHER, he still…LOOKED UP TO HIM! Good one, David. HIGH Five!
Ok, eye candy. I’m so DRAWN to the drapes. The inclusion of the finials on the curtain rods deserves a ROUND of applause. Great detail, Jeff. Stretch’s arm on Avi’s shoulder, and Avi’s arm, in turn on his…both outSTRETCHED to one another…very TOUCHING. Case’s hand to her throat in sentimental surprise…MOVING. And I like the Detroit Red Wings Logo on Stretch’s Jersey, and Avi’s shirt…but I’ll FLY past it. The card is cute, but just like the newspaper in Case’s hand, I can’t make out the image too well…just not GRAPHIC enough…So, that leaves the old writing on the wall…There’s an old PHOTO of the three of them, hanging on the wall. And Stretch is sitting upon his Father’s shoulders…Just the LIFT I needed this morning…So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great Father’s Day, Everyone! I RAISE my glass to all who celebrate! 🍷🙋🏻
