🎶 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! 🔦⛏🙋🏻
