CARTOON ANSWER: THE GRAND OPENING OF THE REC CENTER’S NEW POOL – – –
SAS CHS EDA ULAP = CAUSED A SPLASH
Good Morning, Everyone! 🏊🏻 WATER YOU KNOW! 🏊🏻
🎶 Come on over to the SWIMMING POOL, because I’ll be SWIMMING over there…I’ll be SWIMMING over there, over there..I’ll be SWIMMING right there…Come on over to the SWIMMING POOL...Because I’ll be swimming over there…🎶 “Back of the Bus” – Harry Belafonte 1964 https://tinyurl.com/ybmagnfw
🏊🏻 The Rec Center has built a pool, and families are thrilled,
They’ve waited for the longest time and now their dream fulfilled.
The Father has a bucket list, to SALSA dance one wish…
While wearing a FEDORA, he intends to dance in bliss.
And next upon that list of his, the hope to Cannonball,
Without causing the CHAOS that his last attempts recall…
His technique coarse as BURLAP, finesse he surely lacked,
But now that there’s this pool to use, he’s sure not to be sacked.
So he’s become a member, in advance he’s paid his cash…
His family’s now primed to see that he has CAUSED A SPLASH! 🏊🏻
While all of today’s entries are Sweet Repeats, we have FEDORA as our oldest word, dating back to February 2014, and SALSA as our newest, having been seen this past July 5th. BURLAP which didn’t just fall into our LAPS, is making its’ seventh appearance this morning, while CHAOS is taking its fifth TURN…CRAWL in all, it was BURLAP that was the SINK OR SWIM word for today…
FLOATING on to our cartoon, Jeff’s placed us at a local Rec Center, where it seems that the community has POOLED their resources, and built an INDOOR POOL. It’s Grand Opening Day, and we see a family of four well SUITED for the occasion. With the two children already TESTING the WATERS, we see Mom and Dad poised to take the LEAP of faith. It’s Dad who seems to be getting all the attention though, as the cries of his son to ” C’mon Dad, CANNONBALL” seems to be DROWNING out all the other voices, while at the same time STROKING his ego. He WAVErs a bit, but it looks like he’s finally ready to take the PLUNGE, and make a SPLASH. And by the happy looks on everyone’s face, we can see that this POOL was well worth the WADE, and things are going just SWIMMINGLY…So, in answer to our question…this Grand Opening has definitely…CAUSED A SPLASH! Good one, David! WATER‘ll you think of next?
Ok, eye candy. The WATER’s a pretty shade of Blue..and AQUA see the many ripples of WAVES. In the background, there’s a Lifeguard on duty, and two DIVING boards of different heights are shown. We see what appears to be a teenage boy SPLASHING down, in a CANNONBALL, while a woman is seen making a graceful SWAN DIVE. Behind her, stands a man LOOKing before he LEAPS, and from the obviously admiring look FORMed on his face?…I doubt it’s the DIVE he’s admiring! The divider line is shown, and coming back over to our side, we see a man loving the LAP of luxury, and the brother and sister WADING for Dad….he in dark trunks, and she wearing a reddish-colored flower-patterned SWIMMING Cap. But it’s Dad that’s caught my eye…He’s wearing SWIMMING Goggles, but is he also wearing a black SWIMMING Cap? I don’t know…Is it just me, or does this guy seem a little SHALLOW? And is Moms’ hand reaching out to pat his back in encouragement..or does it look like she’s just dying to give him the PUSH he needs? Hmm..WATER you think? So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone, and here’s a little something to WHET your funny bone…We know H20 is WATER, but what’s H204?…”Y“…SWIMMING of course! 🏊🏻🙋🏻
RIP Penny Marshall. You did NY proud…😥
