NY STA UDY OO = YOU DON’T SAY
Good Morning, Everyone! 🎩 SAY IT ISN’T SO…SERIOUSLY…SAY IT ISN’T SO🎩
🎶 TALKING is cheap, people follow like sheep…Even though there is no where to go. How could she tell he deceived her so well…Pity she’ll be the last one to know…SILENCE is golden, but my eyes still see…SILENCE is golden, golden, but my eyes still see…🎶 “Silence is Golden” – The Four Seasons 1961 https://tinyurl.com/yczkfyk5
🎩 From what we see upon the wall, they only have this son,
And most likely the quiet treatment long ago begun.
Dad’s thinking it’s not MANLY, he says so and he’s brash…
He knows this isn’t steady work, there’ll definitely be no STASH.
Where Mom may be more CUDDLY, she’d rather hear him speak,
She’s picturing that box routine he’ll do week after week…
She wonders if it’s her fault, since PONCHO was her choice,
Maybe a name of cover-up made him cover his voice?
Whatever is the reason, it seems mum’s here to stay…
Say what you will, but it looks like it’s down to YOU DON’T SAY! 🎩
While all of our words today are Sweet Repeats, the anagrams are all new; and while there may be a bit of a challenge to them, for the most part, it’s not much to SPEAK of. Our two oldest words, MANLY and CUDDLY came out of the BOX at the end of 2017, while STASH, which looks like the easiest word of the day, is also the newest, having been seen as recently as October 13th. And just a week before that, on October 6th, we had PONCHO…Ok, that’s a WRAP!
Three times last year, we SPOKE about MIMES here in our Jumble pages: in February, March, and October. But from what I can see, this looks like it’s first APPEARANCE this year. So, let’s ACT IT OUT...Today, Jeff’s brought us into the home of Mr & Mrs WYATT IT-US. Seen sitting in easy chairs, reading, they’re approached by their son, PONCHO, dressed as a MIME. But, MIME oh MIME, it’s not a happy scene…From the dialogue we HEAR that this SILENT desire of their son has once again reared its’ bowler-hatted head. While Mom is asking him to SPEAK OUT, it seems that he’s NOT ALOUD to…You know, MIME rules and all that. And Dad is definitely not happy with the whole thing. He knows that becoming a successful MIME is practically UNHEARD OF! I guess he’s figuring all that money spent on a college education…and the BOX his son will end up thinking OUT OF isn’t even there? No, he can’t HANDle it.. And with him SAYING “Not the MIME thing AGAIN”? I’m guessing the third MIMES the charm…So, in answer to our question. What did they SAY? They said…YOU DON’T SAY! Good one, David! You definitely keep ’em coming…MIME after MIME...
OK, eye candy…Light purple shaded panel, matching green easy chairs. Picture on the wall, showing the IT-US Family, years ago. Mom, wearing powder blue slippers, sits reading a book. Poncho, dressed as we’re TOLD all MIMES are, in striped shirt, bowler hat, and a blue pair of PANTs. O MIME, but wait..shouldn’t they be black? His white face shows the requisite black teardrop, and he’s wearing white gloves. But he’s sporting a bit of a beard on his chin, which is usually UNHEARD of with MIMES. Dad, in black stocking feet, is reading a newspaper, opened to the BLACK and WHITE comic section …We can see the Family Circus and Ziggy, and above that a Jumble puzzle featuring a guitarist. There’s three others also, but I can’t put my FINGER on them. Maybe one of you out there can give me a HAND. But what really caught my eye this morning? The picture on the wall, showing Mom, Dad and Poncho holding balloons…If you look real closely, you’ll see that Mom and Dad had so much more hair back then…Sure, no STRESS! I bet those were the Best MIMES of their lives! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And maybe we should rethink that whole “Children should be seen and NOT HEARD” thing…Just SAYIN‘! 🎩🙋🏻
