Good Morning, Everyone!           🏄🏻🏂  TO BEACH HIS OWN? 🏂🏄🏻

🎶 We gotta keep SEARCHIN’ SEARCHIN’, find a place to hide, SEARCHIN‘, SEARCHIN’, she’ll be by my side..If we gotta keep on the run we’ll follow the SUN-ah, wee-ooh…Doesn’t matter, doesn’t matter what people might say,…She’s mine and I’m gonna take her anyway….Gotta keep SEARCHIN’, SEARCHIN’ find a place to stay, SEARCHIN’, SEARCHIN’, every night and day…..🎶  “Keep Searchin'” – Del Shannon  1964 

🏄🏻 🏂Vacations can be tricky, when two people must decide,
If WARMTH is what they’re going for, without the CLOUDY skies.
You’re stuck at work, the rat-race makes us GERBILS on those wheels,
We want to get away and just relax and human feel…
But do you choose the Mountainside where snowcaps make you perk?
Or should you opt for Sun-Sand-Surf? (The HYPHEN had to work)!
Deciding where is hard enough, like ENSIGN is right now…
This rhyme is making me become as MADDER as a cow!
The bottom line is someone wins, and someone just must go…
Along with the decision, after they’ve SEARCHED HIGH AND LOW.🏂 🏄🏻

First thought this morning? “Be careful what you wish for”. Second thought? BEGLIR? For me personally, it’s been quite a while since I wasn’t able to look at our cartoon and just guess the witty phrase. Today? I had to write down the letters….and stare. This wasn’t an easy DECISION. I first thought the three last words were: Each his own. Made sense…But then I had two other thoughts. Why just his and not hers? …and what does HELGRADD mean in the English language? And then we had “Cold” besides. But I knew the first word would end in ED, because of the way the question was written, and it sort of stood to reason that AND would be in there, so I just tried to think what was the glaring DIFFERENCE between the BEACH AND the MOUNTAINS…And Eureka! There it was! One’s HIGH and one’s LOW! Anyway, that stumper we were all wishing for? The ship came in this morning…

So, we find ourselves at the home of a young couple. Why they’re dressed the way the are, while sitting in their living room, seems a little OVER THE TOP, but then again, as I’ve said before, I don’t make the news, I just report it…Trying to DECIDE where they’ll go on vacation, we see that the woman wants the BEACH, while the man has raised his sights a little HIGHER. We see that they’ve both found accommodations, while SEARCHING the web. So with our question asking…What they did? They SEARCHED HIGH AND LOW! Well, book the room and get going! Oh wait…Someone’s gonna have to change their clothes!

Ok, eye candy…I like the BEACH scene on the woman’s screen, where we can see the rates listed for Roomie.net. Her left hand lies atop the wired Mouse, and we see that there’s a few SEAGULLS, a FERRIS WHEEL, a ROLLER COASTER and the PIER. The SUN is setting. And the cutest piece of candy here? On the BEACH, are four people, and guess what they’re playing? SPIKEBALL! …No Sinking Sailboat today, but we got Jeff’s Spikeball! The woman is dressed in a Black Bikini, and is wearing a Yellow visor. Our SNOWman is dressed in a Blue and White Alpine-scene Ski Sweater, complete with Fir Trees, MOUNTAIN caps, and an Antlered Deer. (Spiked Deer)? His hat is Yellow, with a Blue band and Pompom…And he’s wearing Fur-trimmed Brown Ski Boots. Again, why he’s dressed like this while sitting indoors? Anybody? But today’s eye candy? On the back of the Tablet he’s using? Look closely…It’s not an Apple…It’s a PINEAPPLE! The FRUITS of Jeff’s labor! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone!…And remember, Men: JAMAICA go somewhere she doesn’t want to? SNOW way you’ll have a good time…Decisions, decisions!!! 🏂🏄🏻🙋🏻

  1. There was little WARMTH on the CLOUDY day so the ENSIGN took his GERBIL into the galley which made the captain MADDER than he already was and it would take more than one HYPHEN in words to describe his salty language.
    I got home earlier than expected so decided to tackle the Puzzle. It was not easy, which is usual for Sunday, but today’s solution took longer than I anticipated. I used the technique of crossing out ED and AND because of the cartoon and the sentence, but it was a struggle until the answer finally came. A real challenge guys.
    Angela- I had just heard several Del Shannon songs yesterday so I was pleased to see another today. Thanks for the memories.
    Your poem and post and eye candy always give me added things to look for and today was special in that regard. Thanks for the efforts you put into this blog.
    Have a serene Sunday all you Jumble solvers.

    • Hi Earl. Good Morning! I agree, today one needed that old thinking cap. Although I think in my case I didn’t see the forest for the trees. The answer turned out so simple, yet brilliant. Your sentence gave me a smile, well done! 👏🏻 These were tough words with which to form cohesive thoughts. Thanks for the Shout Outs, and you’re welcome for whatever you glean from my random rumination! Unlike you, I haven’t listened to Del Shannon in quite some time though. He’s on my “Tune Do” List….There’s just sooooo much music out there…Hope your day’s going well. Take care, Earl! 🏂⛷🙋🏻


  2. Ensign took me the longest to solve this morning. Wasn’t sure I’d be able to figure out the cartoon answer. I too had to write out the letters (so many of them). All of a sudden searched dawned on me and the rest fell into place. Happy Sunday everyone.

    • H Betty. Agreed.This one called for the writing! I went with the High and Low first though, which left the Searched. Very clever one today! Hope you’re enjoying your Sunday! Take care. 🏂⛷🙋🏻


  3. Hi all – Got the first two words, but the rest took extra looks, with WARMTH and GERBIL being the hardest for me. I looked twice to be sure the last was an actual word, but convinced myself there was nothing the MADDER with it.
    The answer? How about “Took separate vacations” – like the one my brain took trying to come up with it. Not even a ‘T’ to use for THE as a word? Never did get it.

    I was going to attempt a sentence after Earl said he might not be here today, but after seeing HYPHEN, ENSIGN and GERBIL, I thought “Well…… maybe not today after all!” 😂

    Have a great day everyone. Sports fans – try not to overdose.

    Angela, I don’t know that Del Shannon song, but it sounds like it must have been a sequel to “Runaway”. (And I’ll throw in my obligatory plug for Bonnie Raitt’s version with Norton Buffalo’s harmonica part for the ages.)

    🎵”Well, now, if I have to swim a river (or in the ocean!)
    You know I will
    And a if I have to climb a mountain. (Or ski on it!)
    You know I will
    And a if she’s a hiding up On a blueberry hill
    Am I gonna find her, child
    You know I will”🎵 (The Coasters). 🙋🏻‍♂️


    • I thought separate vacations too! …And I also wondered what goes on in that house when they do on-line clothes shopping? 😉 🎶But I’m like that Northwest Mountie…you know I’ll bring her in some day…🎶 Have a good one, G! 🏂⛷🙋🏻


  4. Hi Everyone – I struggled with GERBIL — again — and took some time with the answer. I wrote out all the three-letter words I could think of and looked a second time at the cartoon, which finally gave me SEARCHED.

    • Hi Caroline..That GERBIL gnawed at me too, but as I mentioned to Betty, I saw the High and Low before Searched. And yes, very clever one today! Hope you’re having a great day. Take care. 🏂⛷🙋🏻


    • Frisky little rodents that they are! WHEELy caught us today! Hope you’re having a good day…better than mine anyway…Jets: loss..Giants….loss..Being a NY Football Fan? Priceless!
      Enjoy your night, Professor! 🙋🏻
