Good Morning, Everyone!          πŸΎ HUNG….OVER? 🍾

🎢 Should auld acquaintance be forgot…And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot…And auld lang syne🎢…”Auld Lang Syne” – Robert Burns 1788   https://tinyurl.com/ya97kfpb

πŸŽ‰ If you were in NY last night and dared venture outdoors…
You’d need the strength of EAGLEs, cause the rain couldn’t be ignored…
It poured down hard upon us, with wind and such a MIGHT,
It made you wonder why you’re not inside on such a night.
The new OUTFIT a soggy mess, the hair a frizzy mop…
No matter though ’cause what the h—, here it’s never a flop…
The old years’ gone, we FINISH with a bang and not a whimper,
And pray that life in ’19 will be kinder and much simpler…
So to the bright and to the new…We start with no regret…
A Happy New Year to you all…Go GET THE HANG OF IT! πŸŽ‰

The year is new, our words are old…and easy ones to boot…
It’s like we’ve found a Treasure Chest and get to share the loot!
We’ve seen EAGLE so many times, it FLEW right off the page
And ’cause of that it ends up newest word, and word of age…
I’m tired and I need some sleep…so I’ll make this quite terse…
I’m on to our cartoon right now…I’m giving up the verse!!!

Last year we started our Puzzle Play driving down a highway crowded with cars…We were the “CAR-NATION”…HUNG UP in traffic…Today, we’re safely ensconced indoors, hanging wallpaper. We see a couple…he atop a step stool, she at his side…and they’re speaking with a confidence that’s admirable. The confidence, that is…As for the act itself? Well, they are new at it.. Hmm…I’ll just CUT to the chase…It took them awhile to…GET THE HANG OF IT! Good one, David…Easy, breezy…no HANG UPS here!

Candy? I’m HUNG UP on the wallpaper…It’s a little hard getting PASTE it…A mustard color, with a garish sort of linked design. They paid for this? Hmm…The first panel coming loose both at top and bottom. The second, just at top… The others do look better, so maybe he is becoming “A Pro“…The smoothing brush is the same color as the wallpaper. But there’s nothing jumping out at me. So, I’ll go for the Bye Candy. Where’s the Paste Brush? And if it’s the Pre-Pasted kind of wallpaper? Then where’s the water? I’m HUNG UP on the whole thing…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great New Year’s Day, Everyone! Here’s to 2019! πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. Good morning. First off,I met a few acquaintances in 2018 that I don’t think I’d have any trouble forgetting but,there are some that I know will brighten 2019. Proper song Angela for the New Year. Heck of a job on the use of words and puns. You started me off with a smile. Today’s words were of little challenge. Outfit would be my choice for hardest word. It took an extra minute when I actually yelled it out like I won a prize or something. The cartoon answer was another winner from the guys. I ended the year a winner and started the new year a winner. I’m back baby. Lol. Have a great day everyone and stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Happy New Year! You’ve brightened up this rather dismal dreary day…I’m half nodding as I write, I haven’t gotten to bed yet…I’m soooo tired. And I laughed just now, because I went to post the addendum, and you nosed me out! Yea, we all cross paths with those few people that make us shake our heads in disbelief, but what’re you gonna do, Brooklyn? It takes all kinds…But I do believe the good ones make up for them, right! Thanks for the Shout Outs, and I agree, it was a gift today…easy, breezy..But as far as being back? Au contraire, mon Ami…you were never far away! Hope you have a great day, Brooklyn! Don’t ever change! πŸ·πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. ADDENDUM: In keeping with Tradition….πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸ»

    🍾 The art of hanging wallpaper, is not an easy task,
    If paste is what you’re using, I do suggest a mask…
    The secret is some steady hands, an EAGLE eye don’t hurt…
    One MIGHT consider patience too…trust me, for what it’s worth.
    A clinging OUTFIT may go best, no fabric that can flow,
    ‘Cause leaning forward towards the wall, you need keep it in tow.
    But if you get to FINISH and your teeth you haven’t grit?
    Kudos…Because not everyone can’t GET THE HANG OF IT! 🍾

    • Kudos. For someone who hasn’t hit the sack yet you did a heck of a job. You’ve done well grass hopper. Time to hit the sack on a high note. Sleep well my Queen of puns.

      • Aw, Brooklyn, you’re such a 😘 Gem! Thank you, Bud…and I did catch some sleep. No where near enough, but it’s a start. But now, my throat’s starting to hurt, my Achilles heel. And I think I’m losing my voice…(which if you remember when it happened last year, it was roundly applauded by my friends here)!πŸ˜‰ I really need to GET THE HANG OF this sleep thing before it’s too late! πŸ˜‰ Hope your day’s going great, Brooklyn! Enjoy! πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. The golfer MIGHT have been able to FINISH the round with an EAGLE had it not been for the cumbersome OUTFIT he was wearing. Angela. GET some sleep!!

    • There was an outside chance that the new OUTFIT they’d hired MIGHT not FINISH the statue of the EAGLE in time…
      Doable, but pedestrian compared to yours. Brilliant use of EAGLE, very creative. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Kudos! Happy New Years, Chuck, to you and yours…πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸ»

  4. Easy one today which is probably a good thing especially for those party hardy jumblers like Angela. Happy New Year to all.

    • Hey Betty…Happy New Years to you and yours! And yes, thank God for small favors! πŸ˜‰ Hoping you have a wonderful day! πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸ»

  5. Hi all – I guess we all agree that the guys took pity on us with a really easy puzzle today. The Jumbling wasn’t humbling and we’re not mumbling.

    The cartoon reminds me of a β€œFor Better or For Worse” strip, where Elly got in a zone and stayed up all night wallpapering the rooms, only to have son Michael come in in the morning and say β€œDon’t flowers usually grow pointing UP?” 😱

    Happy New Year everyone, and best wishes for the coming year!

    Get some sleep, Angela; you’ve got five bowl games to watch today, starting in about 10 minutes! πŸ˜‚ Congrats on being coherent after the long night.
    My team went down in FLAMES last night and I’m still a bit SHELL-SHARKED! πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

    • Hey, G. The wallpaper’s horrendous…did you see it in color? Gives all new meaning to “WALL’ll it be?”…I’m taking the BOWL games with a grain of SALT. I’d rather KETCHUP on the sleep if I could. I keep up this pace? I won’t be able to DISH out a pun to save my life! There’ll be no FRUITS to my labor! And you know me…TINE and TINE again I said I was going to try and get some good sleep, right? MEN U…just don’t know. My health’s at STEAK here! ..Ok..enough FOOD for thought…Where were we? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Thanks for the Shout Out, G and I hope you’re having a great day., despite getting so BURNED last night. πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸ»

      • If those folks expect you to provide food and drink today, tell β€˜em it’s NACHO problem – you ROSE so late they can make their own FIESTA with the SUGAR and CITRUS OUTBACK. πŸŽ΅β€All is quiet, on New Year’s Dayβ€πŸŽ΅ πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

        • LOL..πŸ‘πŸ» No, it’s not on me today. I did a ton of chicken parm and sent it over…They started already…I’m behind schedule! πŸπŸ™‹πŸ»

  6. Living in the Central time zone we toasted in 2019 twice,once on NY ( my wife’s home state)time, then on Chicago’s central time.As a result it was a later than usual get up time this morning.Fortunately all 4 words,even outfit,were an instant solve as was the final solution.Go Buckeyes in this afternoon’s Rose Bowl.

    • Oh, Professor…Just the thought of doing THAT twice? No way…Sometimes once definitely is enough! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ πŸ™„ Happy to hear that you enjoyed your night..just rest up for the trek home! Good luck with the game…πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸ»

  7. The NASA probe β€œNew Horizons” has confirmed its successful flyby of the Kuiper Belt object Ultima Thule, and project scientist and Queen guitarist Dr. Brian May has released his new single, giving new meaning to the term SPACE ROCK!!
