CARTOON ANSWER: WHETHER OR NOT GLOVES OR MITTENS ARE BETTER WAS THE – – –
UAA JCE BDT STNH = SUBJECT AT HAND
Good Morning, Everyone! 🙌🏻 GLOVE ME TENDER... 🙌🏻
🎶 Don’t know much about HISTORY…Don’t know much BIOLOGY…Don’t know much about a SCIENCE book…Don’t know much about the FRENCH I took…But I do know that I love you, and I know that if you love me, too…What a wonderful world this would be…. “(What A) Wonderful World” – Sam Cooke 1960 https://tinyurl.com/y8cqftmh
PS: There may have been other songs, better songs, but I chose whimsical. Not only did I go with SUBJECT, I went with the thought of the memories that hold true on New Year’s Eve...and the memories in this clip just FIT LIKE A GLOVE!
🙌🏻 Standing outside a GUAVA bar, where they just shared some JUICE,
Two friends who discuss everything from men to types of mousse,
Get talking about types of Gloves, and what helps them to choose,
And try to put their finger on which win and which ones lose…
Depending on a BUDGET, there’s Cashmere to stretchy wool,
And Leather is a favorite choice, fur-lined to make them full…
(There’s no way STENCH can fit this theme)..But now that that’s been said,
I can get on with ending this and put it all to bed…
So whether you go shopping for the look or for the brand,
The bottom line…Mittens and Gloves are our SUBJECT AT HAND!
With another day of Sweet Repeat-Repeats to start off our week, we’re also closing out the puzzle year with one for the BOOKS! While we easily SQUEEZED past JUICE, it wasn’t that easy with GUAVA, STENCH caused more than a WHIFF of trouble, and BUDGET ended up COSTing us a second look. Stench NOSED out the group to be our most recent word, at July 14th, while Juice made a PIT stop as our oldest, going back to August, 2014. But they all eventually FIT into place. And now…On to our cartoon…
So, I lied earlier. Well, maybe not lied, more like a case of unrequited GLOVE…I did STRETCH the truth. In order to make our words FIT into a poem, I tried to sell you on a GUAVA bar, when the truth is we’re standing in the middle of TIMES SQUARE, and it really is NEW YEAR’S EVE! Jeff’s art imitating life! With the BALL atop the One Times Square Building, NYC, we see that we’re in the crowd awaiting the stroke of midnight! How cool is that? Obviously very, since our girls’ breath is definitely visible…But I didn’t lie about the GLOVE conversation..That I COVERED honestly…The SUBJECT of our girls’ discussion is GLOVES vs MITTENS. Our girl at right can be heard telling how her “fingers stay warmer”. And she’s right, since MITTENS do tend to be warmer because your fingers generate more heat when they’re not separated from each other by fabric, as they are with GLOVES. But our girl at left, likes the mobility that GLOVES afford her…And with all this information at HAND…The answer to our question of which is better? It was the SUBJECT AT HAND! Good one, David! Applause! Applause! I give you a HAND!
Ok, eye candy. With the panel shaded in Blue, the 2019 showing atop our building in the background stands out in Red. We see a CAST of characters, all adorned in various winter headgear. Our two main characters are fashionably dressed, the one at left in a Teal Jacket, Scarf, Headband, Boots and GLOVES. Her Black Earmuffs match her pants. Our girl at right, looking better protected against the cold, is clad in a Full-length Purple Puffer Coat, with a matching Knit Hat. Her boots look warmer too, being Black Suede, with Purple Woolen Tops. And of course, there’s her Black MITTENS…🎶bringing in the heat!🎶 But the eye candy? Looking real closely? The Teal Headband, reads 2019, and below the 2019 on the Building? It reads “JUMBLE“! HA! I gotta HAND it to you, Jeff…Kudos! You’ll try FITTING it in anywhere, won’t you? So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And always remember…🎶All you need is GLOVE…all you need is GLOVE…All you need is GLOVE, GLOVE…GLOVE is all you need…🎶 And I hope you’re all SMITTEN!
Here’s to the New Year, Everyone! Cento Anni! May you live a hundred years! 🍾🙋🏻
