CARTOON ANSWER: THE HANDYMAN BOUGHT A NEW TRUCK SO HE COULD – – –
DT OU LAN ORO = TOOL AROUND
Good Morning, Everyone! 🛠 The HANDYMAN Can! 🛠
🎶 If I had a HAMMER…I’d HAMMER in the morning, I’d HAMMER in the evening, all over this land…I’d HAMMER out danger, I’d HAMMER out a warning, I’d HAMMER out love between my brothers and my sisters, all over this land, uh….🎶 “If I Had A Hammer” – Peter, Paul and Mary 1962
🛠 A quick GLANCE at this brand new truck, and we can see it’s sweet
The Handyman may look to OUTDO others that he’ll meet…
We learn that he’s excited, he seems to be quite pleased…
‘Cause now he’s got a lot of space, his tools they won’t be squeezed!
No more will he say “I FORGOT to bring the Allen wrench..”
‘Cause now he can fit everything that’s lying on his bench…
I see a Ball-peen Hammer, DIGIT-wise say 24 ounce ?
Perhaps a No-Slip handle so that there’s no chance of bounce?
I understand why he’s so taken with this truck he’s found…
There’s room for him to load up and just go and TOOL AROUND! 🛠
Today’s words, all Sweet Repeats, are easily recognizable, except for maybe OUTDO. Was there some DOUBT on your end, despite there being no “B”? After AWL, it is a silent “B”….Do our minds work in such mysterious ways that while trying to NAIL down one word, another enters our thoughts with such DRIVING force, that we just can’t PRY it loose? Yes, it happens…Ok, enough HAMMERing and jibber-jabbering…let’s move on to today’s solution…We’re in a Garage somewhere. Two HANDYMEN, are seen preparing to load a TRUCK with TOOLS. It’s the new purchase of the man on the right..And they’re both just DIEing to take it for a spin AROUND the neighborhood…You know, there’re looking to TOOL AROUND! Good one, David! You’ve NAILed it!
Ok, eye candy…We see a LADDER, A SLEDGEHAMMER, and a SHOVEL. No wait..it’s a SPADE..I may as well call a SPADE, a SPADE…There’s also a CIRCULAR SAW, the BALL-PEEN HAMMER, and a CROWBAR..TOOLS of the Trade, but I know I SAW something better…There’s three WRENCHES hanging on the wall, but they’re not MEASUREing up..And I do like Jeff’s dePICKtion of the mounted TOOL BOX’s open lid….But, it’s coming down to either the little smiley-faced Keychain, in our DRIVERS‘ hand, or the emblem shown on their hats…It’s a crossed WRENCH and SCREWDRIVER…I think I’ll go with the Emblem. It’s just SEAMs to HAMMER it home! Have a great day, Everyone! …and Just 🎶Keep on TRUCKIN’, Baby…🎶…Eddie Kendricks-1973 🛠🙋🏻
