Good Morning, Everyone!             ⛏🔦 GET A LOAD OF THIS! 🔦⛏

🎶 Yeah, I’m proud to be a coal MINER’S daughter…I remember well, the well where I drew water…The work we done was hard, At night we’d sleep ’cause we were tired…I never thought of ever leaving Butcher Holler…🎶 “Coal Miner’s Daughter”Miss Loretta Lynn   1970       https://tinyurl.com/yddufryo

🔦⛏ A Miners job’s not easy, the dankness and the dark…
It takes a certain kind of man…it’s no walk in the park.
There’s always something LEAKY, there’s always things that crawl,
You never know what might “TURNIP“…it’s iffy after all.
Credentials can’t be BOGUS, you need to be have a grip,
A claustrophobic person would be so ill-equipped…
The issue of their safety, one always of DEBATE,
There is M H S A  but still…conditions ‘ain’t that great.
I tip my cap to one and all, their courage quite endearing…
A Mine’s a Mine…but my mind’s not one to be so “LODE”-BEARING ⛏🔦

With all of our words being old favorites, I was surprised to see DEBATE amongst the group, since we only tackled it a week ago today, when it appeared as BEDTEA. It didn’t pose any problem then, and so far this morning, it hasn’t come up for DISCUSSION. Amongst our other words, the oldest entry is LEAKY, which DROPPED in on March 22nd, 2017. No one’s voiced any concern with any of today’s entries…But I wish I could say the same for our answer. Being familiar with the word “LODE” in relation to mining, either from crossword puzzles ORE just general knowledge, and knowing about BEARING and Retaining Walls since I’ve helped to gut apartments and build a She-Shed or two…the solution was an instant read, especially seeing the words “SHORE UP” in the dialogue. But since a few of the Early Morning Jumblers have CAVED on the answer, I’m not SHORE if this one will be that easily solved. So instead of trying to BUILD a case for it, I’m going to add a link here describing https://tinyurl.com/y837u95t LOAD BEARING walls. It could just be a question of MINE over MATTER, but I’m SHORE it’ll explain it all a lot better than I ever could…

Since our cartoon today has us underground, AND IN THE DARK, the panel is showing a yellow-lit background coming from the flashlight held by the Miner at left, and the Head Lamp from the Hard Hat of the Miner at right, who’s holding a pick hammer. Both are clad in Blue work shirts and Brown work shoes. Miner left is wearing Blue pants held by suspenders, while Miner right wears Black pants with an extra open-front shirt. And as they discover the “LODE”-BEARING wall, I’ve discovered this as eye candy…Miner left’s head seems to be covered with a Red cap, instead of a Hard Hat. There is a circular image showing at the front of the crown, but it’s not that clear, so I’m not SHORE if it COVERS it…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone and after all that eating most of us did yesterday…Today seems the perfect day to just kick back, relax and take a LOAD off! 🔦⛏🙋🏻

    • LOL! 👏🏻👏🏻 Good one, Whoever you are…And trust me, yORE not alone! This one’s definitely ROCKing the boat this morning! Have a good one…🔦⛏🙋🏻

  1. There was a lot of DEBATE at the TURNIP farm about whether the LEAKY irrigation system was due to BOGUS connectors.
    No difficulty with the scrambled words or the solution.

    • Good Morning, Earl. I like it! 👏🏻👏🏻Kudos all around! Have a good one! 🔦⛏🙋🏻

  2. I first thought gold bearing,then,load bearing,but finally lacking letters,lode bearing worked.Turnip was looking like upturn at first,all in all a challenging puzzle for the post Thanksgiving Black Friday.

    • Good Morning, Prof. You definitely PICKED through those letters,huh? Good solve…Hope you have a great day..⛏🔦🙋🏻

  3. Good morning. No problem with any of the words but when I got to the cartoon that was a different story. After three quick attempts and having a “who gives a darn attitude,”I decided to look for the answer. It was explained so well by head engineer Angie that it should have come to me after awhile. Speaking of her. I read the entry twice and thought at first it was Mikes but further down it looked like Angela’s work. But wait, where is the song that’s always at the beginning! Did the poor girl eat to much turkey and her mind was clogged. Did the Grinch somehow sabotage Angela’s work. Other than the mystery of the missing song,it was a masterpiece of work. Earl,you turnup a cornucopia of interesting work every day. Thanks. On a serious note. The best part about Thanksgiving to the end of Christmas season is that we are with family and friends and people in general are much more friendlier. most people smile and even say good morning etc as you pass one another. Shame it doesn’t last the whole year round. I often tell the grouchy guys at the bocce court that you waste more energy being mad than being glad. It doesn’t get you anywhere being in a negative frame of mind. Hey that’s enough preaching. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn…You have me rolling! 😂 I’ll give you the first one..my mind is clogged up, but the second? No..no grinches here..😂 Sorry to throw you off track..I work from 2 different iPads, and when I hit to publish I hadn’t combined the pieces. I only realized it after I went to file the email…Thanks for the Shout Outs, Bud, you’re such a Sweetheart.😘 …Y’day at dinner, we were talking about exactly what you’ve said here. It’s so true. In Shop Rite, in restaurants…people are so different. The Holiday Spirit. Why it doesn’t last, IDK. Hopefully someday it will…But you keep “preaching” Paul…Far as I’m concerned, you have the right attitude. Anyway, go back and take a look…your song awaits! 😉 Have a good one Brooklyn. 🔦⛏🙋🏻

  4. GREAT comment, Paul, about how we expend our energy!! As for Angela- she probably needs a break after expending so much energy yesterday with TOM..

    • ROTFL! Uh, Chuck? You do realize that I can hear you, right? 😂 And how’d you find out about Tom? Here I thought we were so discreet! 🦃😉 Now I’m really gonna have some ‘splainin to do! 😉 Scroll up, Chuck…I added the “Words and the Music”. Wishing you a good one! 🔦⛏🙋🏻

    • Thanks Chuck for the explanation about Tom and Angela. It’s nice they get together on Thanksgiving but I wonder if it’s also Christmas and Easter as well. But then again it’s her business not ours. Lol. She did redeem herself with the absolute perfect song choice with Loretta Lynn.

      • ROTFL!… Et tu, Paul? Again, Gentlemen……I can hear you!!! 😂😂 Maybe you two should just get together and take this act on the road? I’m SHORE you guys would be a hit! And I knew you’d enjoy the song, Paul…But how’d you feel about “TURNIP”? 😂🔦🙋🏻

  5. Hi all – TURNIP took the longest after trying INPURT. DEBATE continues quite a stretch of words putting DE at the beginning instead of ED at the end.
    When the miner said there was a lot to mine, I thought the answer might be “VEIN”-GLORIOUS, and it actually fit, and there was a G! Alas, no V or U.
    There was GOLD in that thar answer’s letters, but when I saw LOAD, I got it, most likely from seeing displays about the Comstock Lode silver deposits when I’ve been in Nevada. (It’s a great place to get married!) (Nevada, not the Comstock Lode).

    🎵”I live in a silver mine and I call it Beggar’s Tomb;
    I got me a violin and I beg you call the tune,
    Anybody’s choice, I can hear your voice.
    Woah, oh, what I want to know, how does the song go?”🎵

    Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving!

    🎵”When Black Friday comes
    I’ll collect everything I’m owed
    And before my friends find out
    I’ll be on the road
    When Black Friday falls you know it’s got to be
    Don’t let it fall on me”🎵

      • You’ve heard of “Oof-da”? OOPS-da! 😂
        A misFIT once again.
        Dracula’s favorite Rolling Stones song – “Love in Vein”. 🙋🏻‍♂️

        • Preaching to the choir, G..OOPS is my middle name…And you’re far from a misfit..you fit in here just fine! 😉 …ORE the song on the reverse side…🎶Got a LODE ‘lotta Love🎶…😂🔦🙋🏻

  6. I was so fixated on using ore, I came up with “bore” aligned. Sounds like borderline. But I like lode bearing now.

    • LOL..Good one, Sue! I like the sound of it…But I’m glad to hear you eventually SMELT it right! 😂 Have a great day! 🔦🙋🏻
