Good Morning, Everyone! 💃🏻 LAST TANGO IN…MARRIAGE? 💃🏻
🎶 Will you be my Mr. Right?…Can you fill my appetite? I can’t be sure that you’re the one for me…But all that I ask is that you DANCE with me…Oh I need you, by me, beside me, to guide me, to hold me, to scold me, ’cause when I’m bad, I’m so, so jbad…So let’s DANCE, this last DANCE..Let’s DANCE, this last DANCE..Let’s DANCE, this last DANCE, tonight…🎶 “Last Dance” – Donna Summer 1978
💃🏻When “Dancing With the Stars” began so many years ago,
I think most people thought..”Dancing? Boy, what a joke this show”…
To take professional dancers and try to UNIFY a team,
With stars and teach them how to dance…far-fetched is what it seemed…
The stars we thought would be SCARCE, but little did we know,
The show became an instant hit, on air and VIDEO.
We saw a renewed interest in dancing where there’s touch…
With backgrounds of PAGODAs and Castles and the such.
The romance found resurgence, more couples took a chance…
And soon enough we got to see much less of “AVOID DANCE”! 💃🏻
OLE…Friday! Today’s words, while all Sweet Repeats, in my opinion, are anagrammed with a little more difficulty this time around. The oldest of our group, VIDEO, last appeared back on December 15th, 2016, but as Voide. A lot easier to SEE…And so far this morning, this is what I’m hearing from the Early Morning Jumblers: Avoid and Endive. Endive? N ..where’s the N? And the other stickler, SCARCE, seen a mere three weeks ago exactly, on October 13th as Racesc, didn’t cause any of the brouhaha that it’s causing today. Im getting a lot of Saucer! Well, U know there’s no U…So, if you’re going to DISH it out…etc, etc…Anyway, our remaining two words, both last seen in 2017, were easily side STEPped…So with that said and done, let’s TROT over to our cartoon…
Today we find ourselves in the living room of JUANA and ROCK. Juana, dressed to the nines, is looking forward to TANGO DANCING the night away, but Rock is doing anything he can to SHIMMY out of it, and SIDESTEP the idea by giving her some JIVE excuses…I say, “What a CON. GA on, Rock…dance with the woman! Claiming you’ve got work to do and puzzles to catch up on? What a HUSTLE! I can’t even BEGUINE to FIGURE you out…” Oh, it just makes me want to STOMP my foot…But what’s the POINTE? It doesn’t look like we’re going to get Rock to MOVE off that chair…Because no matter how we TWIST it, I doubt we’re going to get past his…”AVOID-DANCE“! Well what do you know, FOLKs! David’s given us another PAS..O, he’s good!
Ok, eye candy…Within a Blue shaded panel, we see Juana decked out in a Cranberry colored dress, fringed in Black at the hem…Her shoes are Black spikes, sexily laced up at the ankles. She’s wearing 2 Bangles on each of her wrists, and BALL-shaped hanging earrings…Perfect jewelry, not an overabunDANCE…Her hair is styled high upon her head, in two buns. I wonder if a low PONY tail may have worked better, though. But she looks beautiful, and you’d think she’d definitely SHAKE Rock up a little…Rock, on the other HAND…JIVE looking. Sitting clad in casual clothes, shoeless with black socks, we see him reading a newspaper. Featured on the page are a Jumble puzzle with a puppy, Jeffy from Family Circus, and a SQUARE shaped cartoon that I can’t identify. If anyone can make it out, please let me know. Except for Rock’s Brown easy chair, and matching side table with a Gold-shaded reading lamp, there’s no other furniture showing…So what will the eye candy be? I have to go with Juana’s SHOES…They’re just so on POINTE! So, There you have it, Folks, Done. Have great day, Everyone…and remember…Never stop DANCING…It’s so good for our SOLES…💃🏻🙋🏻
** I just realized that the Email sent out this morning had the letters VDN listed as being taken from VIDEO. It should have read the letters VD only. I apologize if the typo caused any confusion. Thank you.🙋🏻
