WT  TB   II   AHR   =   BIRTH “WAIT”


Good Morning, Everyone!       👶🏻 WEIGHT A MINUTE..WEIGHT A MINITE! 👶🏻

🎶 BABY love, my BABY love, I need you, oh how I need you…But all you do is treat me bad…Break my heart and leave me sad…Tell me what did I do wrong…to make you STAY AWAY SO LONG…🎶 “Baby Love” – The Supremes  1964 https://tinyurl.com/y7ehhuzq

👶🏻 Expectant Mothers have a list of things that make them fret..
It’s natural to feel the stress when children we beget…
There’s IDIOCY of old wives tales, that WALTZ around what’s true,
There’s talk of TABBY birthmarks or some other spot come through.
There are books from lots of AUTHORs, with advice ad nauseam,
But best advice will always come from no one but our Moms…
They’ve been there and they’ve done it, and they’ll give it to us straight…
It’s no picnic, but when it’s done? Well worth the whole BIRTH “WAIT”‘👶🏻

Although we’re only seeing one new word this morning, we are seeing an older group of words that have all appeared more than once. AUTHOR has been PUBLISHED for us on three previous occasions, and it’s dating back to January 2015, making it our oldest entry today. Oddly enough, each time it appeared, the anagrams all began with an H and a different vowel, O, A, and U. This time, with A as its starting letter, I believe it’s made for a much easier solve. IDIOCY, which stumped 5 of the 11 Early Birds, was used in 2016, and again on November 5th, 2017, making it our most recent anagram. TABBY‘s our new entry, seen by two Early Birds as BATTY, and WALTZ, dates back to November 2016 and September 2017, but both were easily solved, without getting crazy, or dancing around! So…Let’s not WAIT around any longer…let’s get to our cartoon…

Finding ourselves in a Pink-shaded Nursery, we see a Mother and Daughter, discussing the OVERDUE date of a LITTLE bundle of joy…The expectant daughter is bemoaning the fact that the WAIT for her daughter’s BIRTH is WEIGHing heavily both on her mind…and her body! She uses the word “HUGE“. Let’s face it, Folks, this is BIG news! But Mom is heard DELIVERING some reassuring advice, telling her daughter that she too served as a “Lady in WEIGHTing”, since our expectant Mom also took her own sweet time arriving…and there was no need to be anxious..🎶Que Será, Será….WEIGHT ever will be, will be.🎶..I think what we have here is simply a case of Hereditary Late Coming Out Parties! But as I’m sure many of our Mothers out there know, it’s all worth the WEIGHT!…So, in answer to our question…She was anxious about the…BIRTHWAIT“! HA! Good one, David! I’d EXPECT nothing less! And you never fail to DELIVER!

And today’s Eye Candy? Except for our Moms, the entire panel is SWADDLED in Pink…so even though we see Jeff’s great art work in the background, there’s no color in the details. But I’ll do my best to describe what I’m sure Jeff meant to DELIVER…Various images appear on the wall…A Flower, a Teddy Bear, and a Unicorn. There’s a Flower-embossed MOBILE attached to the CRIB, and we can see left to right…a Rainbow, a Sun-in-Starburst, and a fluffy Cloud. While both Moms have chosen Black for their pant and skirt, Mom-“to-be” is in Purple, while Mom-“You’ll-see” has chosen Yellow. And they both look very chic, with Mom wearing bracelets on both wrists and a pendant, while our daughter sports a ruffled neckline. But what I always find so amazing is how Jeff manages to make his characters appear so age appropriate, with just a few different strokes of that stylus! So I’ll make that my candy today…The looks…From Mom to Mom.. The wisdom that comes with SAGE…So, there you have it Folks….Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And remember…ALL GOOD THINGS come to those who WAIT! 👶🏻🙋🏻

  1. Good morning. After breezing through the first two words and then hitting a brick wall,I double check my phone to make sure it was Monday today. What were the guys doing. We are supposed to ease into jumble at the start of a new week. I reversed the io in Idiocy for some idiotic reason and Author took some time to get. Once I checked my spelling I corrected my mistake. The cartoon answer took me time to get as well. Nice job Angela,especially on the song choice. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good MONDAY Morning, Brooklyn! C’mon, cut David some slack! I’m sure this was all a LABOR of love! 😉 So he put a LITTLE PRESSURE on us…no BIG deal! Just grin and BEAR it! 😂 (I really have a boatload of these that I could DELIVER)! 😉 Thanks for the Shout Out, Bud…and just BREATHE a sigh of RELIEF that it’s OVER! Have a good one, Brooklyn! You’ve given me that morning smile that I always WAIT for! 👶🏻🙋🏻


    • Oh no…not again? Kudos on your sentence…and I’m going to try to help you solve the issue. Just give me some time to look into it a little further. I’ll email you. 🙋🏻


    • My sentiments…Whoever the AUTHOR of this site is, there seems to be some IDIOCY lurking behind the scenes, because it should be as easy as a WALTZ getting an email…and not akin to skinning a TABBY! 😢🙋🏻


    • Why do I have a feeling that today, for whatever it’s BIRTH, the women are going to have better luck DELIVERING than the men? 😂 Good Morning, Mike. 👶🏻🙋🏻


  2. I followed pretty much the same path as Mike, so I can’t say the answer was any easier for me. Though I got tabby and knew it could apply to cats, I wasn’t sure of the word’s meaning until I looked it up.
    Wishing everyone out there a great day!

    • Th anagram for AUTHOR was WRIITEN very well, and I agree..the solution was just a PUSH after that! Good Afternoon, Professor..Hope you have a great day! 👶🏻🙋🏻


  3. Hi all – ZWTAL looks like a normal German word or hard biscuit or toast, but WALTZ was obvious. I recognized IDIOCY from some old computer jokes, and then saw AUTHOR when I concentrated on the ‘U’. It was ROUGH at first when it reminded me of an old commercial – complete for extra credit: “Over under AROUND and THROUGH….”

    Angela, yet another Motown song played by The Funk Brothers. Your writeup and the cartoon reminded me more of this, though:
    🎵”On the day that I was born,
    Daddy sat down and cried.
    I had the mark just as plain as day;
    Could not be denied”🎵 Grateful Dead, “Halfstep Mississippi Uptown Toodleloo”

    Have a good one all!

    • Hmm..Holy Smokes..a ROUGH one? An old cigarette commercial? Or a Truck perhaps? As for today’s listening pleasure? Today’s Mommy Day, Steve…Daddy’s Day is still being beLABORed! 😂 Have a good one! 👶🏻🙋🏻
