CARTOON ANSWER: SHE WASN’T SURE SHE WAS GOING ALL THE WAY IN THE WATER AND HAD A – – –
ITA SDE TWD UNE IAT AE = “WADE IN SEA” ATTITUDE
Good Morning, Everyone! 🏊🏻 WHERE THERE’S A WILL, THERE’S A WADE 🏊🏻
🎶 Somewhere…BEYOND THE SEA…Somewhere waiting for me…My lover stands on golden sands…And watches the ships that go sailin’…We’ll meet (I know we’ll meet) beyond the shore, we’ll kiss just as before. Happy we’ll be BEYOND THE SEA…And never again I’ll go sailing…No more sailing. So long sailing…So long, farewell…Bye-Bye sailing…🎶 “Beyond The Sea” – Bobby Darin 1960
🏊🏻 Water, water, everywhere…it rises up real SUDDEN,
You enter quite precariously, you’re not one for the floodin’
As if you were an INFANT, your thoughts slowly ACCRUE,
“Should I just plunge into the deep…or carefully make my due”?
The signs, some in ITALIC, show warnings of high waves…
You never were real keen on this…you never were that brave.
You move TOWARD the deeper end, but all the while you think…
“They’ll have me on a GURNEY if I mess up and I sink…”
You know you may look foolish, and you really hate to brood…
But better safe than sorry… A “WADE IN SEA” ATTITUDE 🏊🏻
So, today’s words…I can’t help thinking…SEA what happens when you go around looking for the challenge? You find the challenge. But…you may not feel that kindly TOWARDs it! Our words today have certainly made a SPLASH! Despite them all being Sweet Repeats, they made WAVES according to most of the Early Morning Jumblers…And as it stands now, ACCRUE has ACCUMULATED the most votes, with GURNEY a close second. And the real STRETCHER? ITALIC hasn’t been seen since way back on February 18th, 2015, but no one’s WRITTEN in about that one yet…So, how’d you Folks fare today? Sink or SWIM? Let us know…
Now…our cartoon. We’re out at SEA, and we have a woman, hesitantly TESTING the WATERS. The man she’s with is calling out to her to “Hurry up, the WATER’S fine”. But she’s answering that she wants to feel warmer…Giving him a little COLD Shoulder, so to speak… My first glance gave me “Wait in SEA Reaction“. Correct number of letters, and I saw an “R” in both TOWARD, and GURNEY…So I figured, Ok, SHORE, I’m good… But then I thought, it’s really not much of a pun, is it? And why’s the quotation mark preceding the Wait? Of COURSE, then I was like..”WATER you kidding me? She’s WADING…” Now that’s a pun…But then, when I went over to our words, and saw that there was no “R“…I now thought…“R” you kidding me”? (Yes, there was a lot of that FLOATING around this morning)! …So I RODE out our letters…and those “T”s just fit like a T! …”WADE IN SEA” ATTITUDE! WATER you know?…”Just when you thought it was safe to go back in…” 😉 (Sorry, I just couldn’t resist…A little SWIMMING Trivia…I hope you’ll WADE in and let me know if you get it)…Anyway, Bravo, David. From what I’m hearing so far, this one definitely went OVER a few HEADS this morning! Great pun!
Ok, eye candy…Beautiful clear Turquoise water…Reminds me of being in the Bahamas…Puffy white cloud, wafting over a white mountainous area. Pretty Blue sky. Woman, WADING...A little SEASHELL showing on the sand in front of her, surrounded by tiny shards… Man, SWIMMING…A little girl can be seen along side him, FLOATING in shallower water. Out in the deep end…Jeff’s Sinking Sailboat can be seen…Boy, that Boat SHORE has stamina…But the item causing the biggest SPLASH for me this morning? Way over to the right? Just at the SHORELINE? Four men, playing SPIKEBALL! Just like last Sunday…Is this now the WAVE of the future? So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone!…And I hope you’ll BITE at my little Trivia reference…🏊🏻🙋🏻
