CARTOON ANSWER: THE INVENTOR OF THE SADDLE HAD THE  – – – 

ER   IE   DD   IA   =   “RIDE” IDEA 

Good Morning, Everyone!      🐎 Now That Was Using HORSE SENSE! 🐎

🎶 MUSTANG Sally, think you better slow your MUSTANG down…MUSTANG Sally, think you better slow your MUSTANG down…You been running all over the town now…Oh! I guess I’ll have to put your flat feet on the ground…All you want to do is RIDE around Sally, RIDE, Sally, RIDE…All you want to do is RIDE around Sally, RIDE, Sally, RIDE…All you want to do is RIDE around Sally, RIDE, Sally, RIDE…🎶 “Mustang Sally” – Wilson Pickett 1966 

🐎 Way back in the 4th Century, a man, a horse a PADDLE,
A thought, perhaps a LINER ‘tween the man and horse…a Saddle?
A man sat in the FOYER of his home, he was Sarmation,
With JIGSAW-like precision, he worked with determination…
He looked for balance, comfort too…a hide his horse could wear…
The Saddle was invented and voilà, the “RIDE” IDEA! 🐎

With the exception of JIGSAW, today’s words are Sweet Repeats. Unable to find JIGSAW in the files, if it does prove to be new, it looks like we may be BREAKing some sort of record with so many new words in such a short period of time. Yesterday’s SNAZZY was a first as suspected, so it looks like our Jumble FOALcabulary is  just FOAL of new words! But did anything BREAK my STRIDE this morning? NEIGH, NEIGH…it was an easy, breezy RIDE right through…So, ok, our cartoon. Today, we find ourselves in what I believe to be the year 365 AD, among so COLT SARMATIONS. I don’t think I’ve ever HERD of them before, but HAY, there’s a whole lot I STALL don’t know after all these STEERS…We see three men, one astRIDE a HORSE, and they’re discussing the invention of the SADDLE. One man is asking how the other came up with the IDEA, and he’s like..”.CUD you believe I was just TROJAN some thoughts around in my head, and there it was? I figured why should we always be sitting up here FRIESIAN? This SADDLE will keep us warm in the winter, and in the summer? No SWEAT, it’ll work well then too”! And then a third man is HERD CHAIRing him ON…So, in answer to what the INVENTOR had? He had a great solution! He had the “RIDE” IDEA! HIP-HIP HOORAY! I’m HORSE from CHAIRing so loudly! Really good one David…You just keep surPASTUREing yourself every day!

Ok, eye candy…There’s a HORSE alone in the background…Meh, SOLE what…I like the ancient facial HAIR, but I’ll BRUSH PAST it. The hats are nice, but they don’t look very STABLE…Let’s just go with that eye-rolling look on the HORSE’S face…That’s a pretty pRUMINANT glance…I guess the whole IDEA JOUST isn’t SITTING so well with him, huh?..So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And don’t settle for MAREly getting by today…Get out there and ROAN around…It’ll beHOOVE you…you’ll see…🐎🙋🏻

  1. On the luxury LINER, a JIGSAW puzzle and a table tennis PADDLE were left in the first class FOYER, causing consternation amongst the stewards.
    Slight pause at JIGSAW—one of those compound words that I dislike and give me hesitation. And the solution? One of those puns that I not only groan at, but causes me to roll my eyes—not a big fan of this one.
    An ” oldie” that I remember Angela, thanks for reminding me of it. There are lots of songs with “horse” references, I’m wondering what prompted this one?
    Wonderful Wednesday wordsmithing ( which auto-correct does not like) word wizard—-way to write and woo WOWs from weather-weary walkers.
    Have a happy “Hump Day” Angela and all those who visit this stimulating blog.

    • Good Morning, Earl! My song? The word RIDE? The fact that I spoke with my friend SALLY this morning, and he said he’s thinking of RIDING up to NY instead of dealing with the airLINERs? 😉 Yes, it was those two things! So, today’s sentence? I think this just may be one of your best ones yet! And that’s saying a lot, because you’ve consistently offered up some really good ones. 👏🏻 Bravo, Sir, it’s an absolute gem! I think JIGSAW is new, and it’s a great word, isn’t it, compound not withstanding? And this alliterative WONDER you’ve WOOed❤️me with? I think I’m blushing! I love it! Thank you soooo much. Both for the content and the sentiment…Overwhelming to say the least…And I WISH you a WONDERful Hump Day too, Earl! Enjoy! 🐎🙋🏻

        Out where a friend is a friend.”
        Anyone younger than me remember this song, without Googling it?
        Angela—I thought of this while I was walking and wondered why I wasn’t with it earlier—again with the Ws!!
        Thanks for all the kind thoughts—I am way too lazy to write a book and far too long in the tooth to begin another career.

  3. Good morning. I’ll read everybody later I’m off to A/C and the bus in bouncing around on our beautiful paved Brooklyn streets. I’m starting to get car sick why typing. No problem with anything today. Another easy breezy one only difference is I like my answer for the cartoon better than yours. I have “Dire Idea”. Figured it’s relating to the backside so I’m sticking with my answer. Fits better with the quotation marks. Let’s take a vote. I’m in favor of my answer. That’s one for me none for the experts. Until tomorrow stay well or in my case later rather than tomorrow.

ENJOY..but better to ENFOLD…You know…”En I FOLDed my money and came home”? Know that one? I hope if you’re reading this it doesn’t make you “bus sick”..Just take a deep breath. Did you bring the paper bag? You know they say if you place a paper bag across your chest, under your shirt, it wards off car sickness…Really, that’s what they say. They who?

  4. The first saddle is believed to have been invented in 365 AD by the Sarmations, a large Iranian confederation that existed in classical antiquity, flourishing from about the 5th century BC to the 4th century AD. . , their saddle creations were brought back to Europe by the Huns.

    • Hi Clay..Looks like we found the same article, huh? 😉 I don’t believe I’d ever heard the name before until I read it at 3:30 this morning. I may have, but it was too early to argue with myself! And I had quite a time getting it past the Auto Correct! It kept wanting to type SAMARITAN…not GOOD! 😉 I found both spellings “tion” and “tian” I went with the “A”. (I’ve always been partial to an “A”. But now after seeing this, I went back in and see more articles using the “tion”, so I think I’ll change it…Thanks for the heads up…You’re a lot easier to deal with than the Auto Correct! 😉 Hope you’re enjoying your day, Sir! 🐎🙋🏻

  5. Hi all – Once the horse realized how much more comfortable the saddle made him, he would ride over to his owners every morning singing “I’m picking up good Sarmations; they’re giving me excitations.”

    As far as Chuck and Caroline are concerned, I’d much rather “back into” a foyer than a jigsaw!

    Fun to see the unusual combination GJW appear, but the whole word reminded me of when we’ve had SEESAW in the past and made it easier. Don’t try to make a Rickshaw by taking a jigsaw to a seesaw. Ummm, where was I? Oh yeah, the puzzle, and the “Horses, horses.”
    🎵”I bought you a brand new Mustang, 1965”🎵but it cost so much I couldn’t afford to record the song until 1966. Oh well, “Ninety Nine and a Half” will have to do.
    My wife’s high school teams were called the Mustangs, and when Ford heard about it they not only didn’t sue, but sent over a whole bunch of merchandise, keychains, etc. Nice of them.

    Enough Rambling in my Metropolitan area, have a great day!

  6. Hi, all! After a one-second solve of the cartoon answer, I had only one instant word solve, which was LINER. I thought “forey,” actually spelled “foray” before getting FOYER. I forgot the double letter rule and thought “palled,” actually spelled “pallid” before getting PADDLE. I think JIGSAW took the longest. I have dozens of jigsaw puzzles.

    I also have a small hand tool called a jigsaw that has a long, thin replaceable blade and a strong handle that I used 40 years ago around the house to do odd jobs that required the sawing of wood. However, when I noticed that Jerry thought I looked funny to him sawing with such a tiny saw, I learned to start my jobs right in front of him and give him an academy-award-winning performance of making it look as though I was having a hard time of it, which resulted in his telling me to let him do that “before I cut my hand off” as he went to get one of his many huge saws.

    • Hi Lelia..Jigsaw’s another one of those words in our language that tend to confuse the h–l out of people trying to learn to speak it, right? It’s a cute word though…And it is today’s winner for causing the most tics! I too have a lot of Jigsaw puzzles..I have a bunch that my Father made for us from old coloring book covers that he’d mount on wood and then cut for us..I treasure them. Those memories again! And I’m sure you got plenty done with the little saw. I still use mine in a pinch! Have a good one! 🐎🙋🏻

      • STEVE!! You commented to me, “Monsoon sending…thunderstorms,” and “It’s all my fault!” I replied, “All your fault, funny!! … some white clouds & some grey.”

        Jerry said to me, “When you go get your burger, I’ll push the recycling bin back into the garage.” I said, “I’ll go now.”

        I had driven half way to McDonald’s, about a mile, when rain hit with full force. All traffic slowed to 15 MPH. One truck pulled up to McD’s speaker ahead of me, sat there for a few seconds, and then drove through without ordering. I pulled up, looked at how hard the rain was hitting my window, but opened it a little & yelled, “One quarter pounder!!”

        At that point, I was dripping wet all over: my face, blouse, pants, and shoes were sopping as well as the inside of my car door, seat, & floor mat.

        At the next window I shoved $6 into the guy’s hand, closed my window, and drove to the last window without my change. When the last guy held my burger out, I very unceremoniously grabbed it from his hand but did yell “Thank you!”

        I drove home through the neighborhood at 10 to 15 miles per hour. For about 2 blocks, I heard some sleet, then hail, then sleet falling on my car. Jerry met me in our nice dry garage. He said that after I left & the rain hit, he could not see our little mountain.

        Next time I give you a good weather report from here, don’t believe me. Lol

  7. Good afternoon. Quick update. Short and sweet. I was down at least 500-600 and decided to play jokers wild “two pair or better” the lady next to me hit for a thousand on five sixes and would I watch her sweater while she collected. Being the gentleman that I am I figured I’d play till she came back which was right next to her machine. She got back and after three spins I hit with five fives
    and also won a thousand. Going home 300 to the good. Take care.
