WI   DC   ERL   OE   =   “CREWED” OIL 

Good Morning, Everyone!        ⛽️ ONE FOR OIL…,AND OIL FOR ONE ⛽️

🎶 There’s a million OIL RIGS pumping that black gold all over the world…Sheiks and cowboy billionaires, in limousines loaded with sparkling girls….But money can’t buy happiness, just listen to the stories they tell…All you need to really succeed in life is ONE GOOD WELL… It takes ONE GOOD WELL, deep and ever flowing, It takes ONE GOOD WELL, to draw from night and day…Pure and fine it’s yours and mine and it’s always enough…We got ONE GOOD WELL overflowing with everlasting love…🎶 “One Good Well” – Don Williams 1989

⛽️ I imagine they hold classes to instruct on how to drill,
And one ENROLLs to learn the ropes of tanks and pipes at will…
We see a rig and see it BOUNCE, how much do those things WEIGH?
I’m sure this work’s exhausting and these guys well earn their pay…
A man in my opinion’d be a DUNCE to act the fool,
And not work well within his crew and follow all the rules…
The work is hard, the pressure’s on, this job is sweat and toil…
And camaraderie excellence results in this “CREWED OIL“⛽️

Feeling an immediate CONNECTION with today’s words, and sensing something oddly familiar with WEIGH, my search to UNEARTH their former appearances brought me a pleasant surprise. In addition to being all Sweet Repeats, merely 35 days ago, on June 30th, not only was WEIGH one of our words, but the Puzzle that day featured DRILLING for OIL! How’s that for a CRUDE awakening? If I didn’t know better, I’d think this wHOLE thing was RIGged! But let’s face it Folks, aCRUDEing all these words, day after day…I can OILY imagine how hard it must be…So, if it bOILs down to us visiting the SPILLAGE PEOPLE again today?…WELL, you won’t get an AUGERment  from me! Finding ourselves standing somewhere out in a FIELDS of BEAMS, today we see three ROUGHNECKS and two DERRICKS on the JOB. A 5-man CREW. Considering that DRILLING for OIL must be BORING, the three guys shown here are said to be WELL-fitted for the job, and prove that they OIL CAN get along…In fact, one of the DERRICKS is shown saying…”They work WELL together”! Boy, some people WELL do anything to sell a pun..huh? Anyway, with our question asking what they DRILLED for together..”CREWED” OIL! Now how’s that for a pun? It’s OIL in the DELIVERY, Folks! Really good one, Dave! TOP of the LINE!

Ok, eye candy…Aside from all the blue shirts, and yellow gloves and hats, there isn’t a HOLE LOT to CONCENTRATE on…But one ROUGHNECK stands out from the QUEST…The one farthest right…For one thing, he’s making that Jeff move…You know the PROJECTing Reflecting? Whereby his tongue’s hanging out…Once again, I’m not sure if any LIP service is due…But see there in his hand, some sort of device? Is it a DUROMETER,  an ANEMOMETER, a FLOW METER…or a I’ll METER after work tonight? I have no idea! But if there’s anyone out there who’s FLUEnt on this? Feel free to DROP me a LINE…I’m always WELLing to learn something new…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And OILways remember…OILS WELL, that ends WELL!...⛽️🙋🏻

  1. The coach had to WEIGH which player to BOUNCE from the team and which to ENROLL in the DUNCE cap designation
    The only clue word to slow me down a tad was ENROLL—ignored that double letter rule. I held my breath after seeing those dreaded inverted commas but after writing the circled letters down and guessing OIL was the second word, was able to come up with today’s clever pun.
    Your song was a gusher of oil-well references Angela and a completely new one for me. Sounds like it was written by a Texan?
    Your rhyming rightly deserves a RIGHT ON, well done.
    Your post contains a question about what “meter” the crewman is holding. I am only familiar with the meters that measure wind speed and they are not usually held in ones hand—but perhaps someone else will have a more definitive answer.
    I’m off to a local Arts Festival in the Park Avenue section of Rochester today, so I’ll check in later.
    Have a Slamming Saturday everyone.

    • Good Morning, Earl…Dunce cap? Ouch! 😳That bad, huh?
      I’ll make you laugh. ..Last time out? ENROLL caught everyone but you! Could be the way it was anagrammed…Let’s see how it looks to the others…And I agree, today’s pun is EXTRA special..it’s a brilliant reference. I’m not sure where the writers of the song are from, but Mr Williams was born and raised in Texas. Thanks for the Shout Out and Poem Nom, it was a fun puzzle…As for the METER? I think I’ll see if Jeff works on weekends! 😂 Maybe he can shed some light for us…Enjoy the Festival…Hope it’s not outdoors though…aren’t you having the same rain up there as we are down here? ⛽️🙋🏻

      • The Festival is outdoors–a mile+ long section of a city srtreet which is shaded by old trees. So even with temperatures predicted to be in the very high 80s and high humidity, it should be bearable.
        No rain by us—other areas of Upstate NY got drenched but we are experiencing a dry, almost drought-like summer. Strange how local weather can be, right?

        • Strange indeed…Moose for one has been getting bombarded like us down here…I hope you’ll get some rain..but not until after the Festival, which sounds nice! ..Wishing you a good day….🌞🙋🏻

  2. Hi Jeff..Good Morning! I think I have to “throw” this one out (sound familiar)? to you…
    What is that device that the Roughneck’s holding? Is it a MOBIL device? Were any of my guesses EXXON the spot? SHELL I go on? Or just let it B..P lease help! TANK you! ⛽️🙋🏻

  3. Weigh was a quick solve but not so for enroll.Oil was obvious but “crewed” not !
    With a rare stay at home weekend,we had to “FaceTime” our 4 yr old twins yesterday,but the newspaper was readily available.

    • Hey Chuck. Good Morning… Looks like you went one for one! But be honest…When “CREWED” appeared? I know you had to applaud! I’ve had more votes this morning for the cleverness there than I’ve had for any other solution in quite a while now…I think it was brilliant! …Face Time? How’d we ever get along without it, right? It’s amazing…I’m glad you’re getting to enjoy some down time, Prof! Be well..⛽️🙋🏻

  4. Good morning. Great job again Angela. Your use of the words, puns and poem I really enjoyed. The song choice I’ll have to check it out because I’m totally in the dark on that. Earl, cute sentence. If entered into the Dunce contest and somehow won should I be sad or happy? It could go either way I guess. At least you’re good at something. Today’s entire jumble again was a breeze. I went straight down the row of words without having to go back again. As for the cartoon, once I saw “Oil” the first word came into view. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good morning, Brooklyn. Thanks for the Shout Outs…I’m having a good laugh over your DUNCE comment! It’s a legit question! 😂 Happy those quotation marks didn’t scare you off…And yes, I think it’s an easy, breezy. Puzzle today too….Have a good one, Bud. Dodge the raindrops! ☔️🙋🏻

  5. On August 28, 1859, George Bissell and Edwin L. Drake made the first successful use of a drilling rig on a well drilled especially to produce oil, at a site on Oil Creek near Titusville, Pennsylvania.

    • Hi Clay..I came across this information whilst I was dabbling at 2AM…Then I started thinking of Vacuum cleaners and Devil Dogs..Guess which one won out? 😉🍩🍫Hope you’re having a good one, Sir! ⛽️🙋🏻

    • At least it must not have been hard for them to decide where to drill if the place was already named “Oil Creek”. What a giveaway! 😂😂

      • …I’m pretty sure the Christening was held AFTER that baby was born! ⛽️😂🙋🏻

  6. Struggled with enroll this morning. Think that one has tripped me up before. No instant solve for the cartoon but did get it after a few minutes of pondering. Looks like it is going to be a sunny day in my part of the world. Happy Saturday everyone.

    • Hey Betty. Good Morning…The little challenge you’ve been waiting for! Great puzzle today! Still hoping and praying some of our rain will come your way…Happy Saturday to you too! ☔️🙋🏻

  7. Hi all – ENROLL just took a second look to put the L’s together. Then because of the positive vibes in the puzzle, I figured it couldn’t be CRUDE oil, but when I wrote the letters I saw the pun.

    Angela, I especially like both the phrases “sparkling girls” and “Spillage People”. Are the latter members of the “Young Men’s Crude-oil Association”?
    (And I suspect my quiz answer for this morning is in your junk file.)

    Have a great day, all.

    • …Yes, some of us are having a L of a time with ENROLL…Spillage People.😂..No, just an elite group of Roughneck’s..”Y” do you ask??? 😂 And who doesn’t love a “sparkling girl”? Have a good one,G…⛽️🙋🏻. PS: Yes…it “was lost..but now it’s found…” 😉

  8. Hi, all! I enjoyed solving our oil rig Jumble puzzle, but it was a short lived enjoyment because of completing words & cartoon answer before finishing one-half piece of toast at breakfast. However, younger daughter & fiancée are coming over soon to take us out for another Wedding Anniversary lunch, which will fulfill my enjoyment quota for the day. I hope all of you enjoy your day, too.!!

  9. Hi, Steve! This is late info FYI that you don’t need to answer.
    When our neighbors returned home, I wrote a note of what they told us when we took them their mail. They said that thanks to Jerry calling them immediately so they could call their son, they had no rain damage in their house from part of their roof blowing off because of the heavy blue tarp the son attached to those parts of their roof.
    The wife said that when they left here, they went to Colorado where the women all gathered together and only the men went fishing in Canada.
    The husband said that they went to Reindeer Lake in Saskatchewan where they did “catch & release” fishing, mostly lake trout & pike. They kept only the fish they knew they would cook for dinner each day and released about 350 fish in all. Now they are busy getting estimates from roofers.

    • Hi Lelia – That’s all really interesting. Sounds like you saved the neighbors a ton of water damage and money; they’re lucky to have you. Pictures of the dust storm engulfing Phoenix were pretty amazing.

      You got me wondering about Reindeer Lake, so I looked it up. It’s in *far* northern Saskatchewan, and has a spot called “Deep Bay” over a meteor crater, where “According to local legend, it is also the location of a monster which pulls animals through the ice in winter.” Good thing they went in the summer – it sounds like it’s good for fishing by many different species!
