SH   O   UB   PT  =  STOP “BUY”

Good Morning, Everyone!          🎂 LIFE IS WHAT YOU BAKE IT! 🎂

🎶 SUGAR, I call my Baby my SUGAR…I never maybe my SUGAR, That’s why my baby is so CONFECTIONARY…Funny, he never asks for my money…all I can give him is HONEY…That he can spend anytime…🎶 “Sugar (That Sugar Baby O’ Mine)” – The Manhattan Transfer  2000

🎂 I’m taken with a place like this, we have a few by me…
There’s one that serves you waffles topped with anything you see.
They’d rival any HUBCAP, they are huge and piled with Sweets…
And you sit there and you dig in…it takes so much time to eat!
But I had to slow my visits, tight pants brought HUSKY to mind,
And with planning to get OLDER, the Cholesterol’s a grind…
(But how perfect if this PALLET could be Palate here instead?
The homonym would surely help me put this thing to bed)!
With this new store, I hope she has success and sales are high…
I know I’d be a patron, and hope people do STOP “BUY”! 🎂

Today’s words were a piece of CAKE, except for HUBCAP…After being fed UP with UPBEAT y’day…first instinct was to start this word with the UP…But after that hit rock BOTTOM…I had to really sink my TEETH into this one..When it finally came into view, it was a SWEET victory! And just to mention, HUSKY was last seen way back on October 10th, 2014! Now that’s a BIG gap in time, isn’t it?

Ok, let’s take a BITE out of today’s cartoon…We find ourselves on a busy city street, where a new store has opened, “SWEET TOOTH BISTRO”. The proprietor, CANDY, is seen standing by the front window, looking for CUSTOMERS. Let’s KNOT SUGARCOAT this, Folks…CANDY is one smart COOKIE. She knows that opening any new business is WHISK-taking, so since she took over CRUSTtody of the store, she’s been inviting  passersby to “Please come in”, and she’s hoping they’ll STOP “BUY”. Boom! Short and SWEET! Good BUN, David! ICING your praises!

The eye CANDY: The adobe storefront is a beautiful natural color of sun-BAKED clay. The stores’ sign, plus it’s’ entire interior are shaded in Powder Blue, as is CANDYS‘ blouse. There’s drapery surrounding the window, (a shade darker than the Brick), something rarely seen on a Storefront window. It’s a SWEET touch. But there’s a lot of color CAST by the CHARACTERS. The sole male, at left, is wearing a purple shirt with green pants. The woman he’s accompanied by, sports an orange top, black pants, and she’s carrying a yellow bag. The woman seen walking the dog, has matching beige shoes and top, worn with a black skirt…She’s not carrying a “Doggie Bag” of any kind DOUGH. Doesn’t she KNEAD to? ..But I think the eye candy today has to be what makes the SWEET TOOTH BISTRO so inviting…We can see two round vintage BISTRO tables, with two chairs at each. There’s CUPCAKES on a stand, and a two-tiered FROSTED CAKE, atop a glass showcase. Inside it, we see displayed two PIES at right, and two MINI CAKES at left. Ah, La DOLCE VITA! It’s what you BAKE it! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone!..I got a little JAMmed up this morning, trying to make some BUTTER puns, but the MARGARINE for error was too big. But I will leave you with this…A good BAKER will RISE to any occasion.  It’s the YEAST she can do…🎂🙋🏻

  1. Must be extra sleepy this morning as the only word that came into view quickly was husky.Older gave me a problem as well as pallet which looked like platelet at first.Stop was a given for the 4 letter word solution followed by ” buy” which enabled me to back into hubcap,since I needed the u and b.Rather than our twin watch duties up N we have our other 2 young granddaughters ,Marla and Alice here for the WIU homecoming parade.

    • Good Morning, Prof! Words were like getting blood from a stone? Platelets! 😉 Some days are just like that…And I am hearing that today, some people are finding the answer a lot easier than the words…Enjoy the parade, Chuck, and have fun with the Little Ones! 🎂🙋🏻

  2. I too saw platelet at first but it was really hubcap that gave me the most pause. Doesn’t seem like it should have been that difficult but it was for me. Answer to the cartoon was indeed easier than the words this morning. Happy Saturday everyone.

    • Hi Betty…HUBCAP it is! Another landslide. And yes, definitely an easier day for the answer than the words! Have a great night! 🎂🙋🏻

  3. Hi all – I put Y at the end to see HUSKY and used the double letter trick to get PALLET. When the second word took a minute I tried the E at the beginning, then saw OLDER when I put the O there instead. The third word took the longest. I kept coming back to a traffic jam at the symphony – a BACH-UP, especially after seeing UP in words so often recently. It only took a second look to get the answer, so I wrote the letters and BACHed into HUBCAP.

    A fun coincidence with today’s Jumble cafe is the fact that San Francisco’s Vesuvio Cafe in North Beach, famous as a gathering place of the Beatniks, Allen Ginsburg and Jack Kerouac, is celebrating 70 years in business this weekend (70 years! Hard to imagine a span of time that long, eh? 😉😂)
    Right across the alley is City Lights Bookstore, founded in 1953 by Lawrence Ferlinghetti, still running it after all these years.

    Another coincidence with your cake emoji Angela –
    🎵Sugar, ah honey honey
    You are my candy girl
    And you got me wanting you”🎵 (The Archies)
    The same Chronicle section with the Vesuvio story is headlined by an interview with Wayne Thiebaud, who at 98 (lotta geezers today!) is curating an exhibition of his work and others’ at the SFMOMA.

    I wish you all a wonderful Saturday!

    Now I digress.
    🎵”Today, everything you want, I swear it will all come true
    Today, I realize how much I’m in love with you
    With you standing there
    I could tell the world What it means to love
    To go on from here, I can’t use words
    They don’t say enough”🎵
    RIP Marty Balin, founder of Jefferson Airplane.
    Wikipedia: “Marty Balin said, ‘I wrote it to try to meet Tony Bennett. He was recording in the next studio. I admired him, so I thought I’d write him a song. I never got to meet him, but the Airplane ended up doing it.’ Jerry Garcia plays the simple, repetitive but poignant lead guitar riff on the song.”

    One reason among many that I wanted to return to the Bay Area after 2 years away was the chance to see Jefferson Airplane and other bands “in their natural habitat”, and my dreams were fulfilled. When I was at my college radio station in Rhode Island in 1967, we glommed onto “Somebody to Love” so early that, when it became a hit on commercial Top 40 radio, we had to fish it out of the Oldies bin to put it back in the playing rotation.

    • Hey G. Et tu…HUBCAP just rolled over everyone today! Have a great night, Steve. Talk to you later. 🎂🙋🏻
