Good Morning, Everyone!                 ✈️ ERROR PLANE? ✈️

🎶 Why won’t you watch that CABIN PRESSURE like you said?…You’re flying low, you’re flying low…Now please be seated with your safety seat belts on…You’re flying low, you’re flying low…That’s really not a secret anymore, and it can save us all…You’re flying low, you’re …flying low 🎶 “Cabin Pressure” – Ted Glen Extended 2012 http://tinyurl.com/y3bcnkry

✈️ Remember in the old days when flying could be fun?
When seats were so more spacious and through airports we could run?
When delays were much less common, no SCORCH sitting on a plane…
And we’d SEIZE upon the chance to wait for passengers that came?
But today things are just all BRAND new…restrictions steady mount,
And all the regulations are like PLAQUE…I just lose count…
So on top of all the Airline’s bull, some passengers like these?
Who make things all more difficult and need to be appeased?
You’d think with all the body checks akin to search for treasure…
Something could regulate us all from suffering CABIN PRESSURE.✈️

I couldn’t find PLAQUE in the Archives this morning, although once again, I feel as if we’ve seen it before. Plaque, a homograph, was always a word that intrigued me somewhat…such polar opposite definitions. I like plaques, commemorating achievements and all…but then there’s plaque…and well…Uh, let’s not go there, especially since most of you are probably enjoying your breakfast…Anyway, it nailed a few of the Early Birds to the wall this morning, and SCORCH also BURNT a few TAIL feathers…SCORCH, seen by 5 of the 11 Birds to be Chorus, also comes in as our most recently SCHEDULED word. We last saw it on June 17th, ’18, as CROCHS, while BRAND hasn’t appeared since 2016, when David offered us NARDB, which I think was a more difficult scramble than today’s. All total, I’ve found today’s words to have been used 7 times since 2015, and not once has any of the anagrams been the same. Good work, David…LETTER perfect!

Ok…Our cartoon. We’re sitting in a PLANE, seeing a group of FLIGHT ATTENDANTS, dressed in blue short sleeve shirts, black vests and white ties,  experiencing a HIGH LEVEL of frustration. One passenger, whom I’m calling HELI COPTER, HELL for short, with the smarmy look of a BOEING constrictor, is causing the staff a good amount of STRESS. He not only caused a FLIGHT DELAY with his LATE ARRIVAL, but he’s being rude, especially with the NON-STOP use of his phone. We see the attendants, yellow Oxygen Masks in hand, looking as if they really need to take a deep BREATH to keep from CHOKING this guy! With his cushy neck pillow, drink in hand, and his phone still turned on, he’s the quintessential definition of a TERMINAL CONTROL freak! And he’s really upset the staff. What we’re seeing hAIR is a seriously bad case of CABIN PRESSURE!…And once again, David’s LANDED a good one! David, I’m in YAW of you!

Ok, eye candy…What I want to mention FIRST, CLASS, is that the dialogue of the female attendant at back refers to “them“. And even though we see a woman sitting in front of HELL, she doesn’t seem to be causing any TURBULENCE. I mean she looks a little BOARDFLIGHTy almost, but I don’t think she’s adding to the problem. It seems to be all him. And there’s another female passenger at right, looking on surprised at the SEATuation. Anyway…Three little things have caught my eye…One, you can actually see two ice cubes floating in our protagonists’s drink… a ROCKY little deTAIL. Kudos, Jeff. Two, our female attendant at back is the only one wearing a WING pin…and lastly, if you look real closely, behind the head of the attendant conFRONTing Hell, you can see a finger EXTENDed UPWARD, turning on the OVERHEAD light. There’s no body or arm seen, but it sure was the BRIGHT SPOT for me! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And I hope you enjoyed the IN-FLIGHT Show! ✈️🙋🏻

  1. Lots going on with this one. Had similar problems on the anagram solve but no issue on the solve as a former naval aviator. In those days the pressure was always on! Have a good weekend!

    • Good Morning. Agree the solve was an easy, breezy….But I’m not sure who I’m speaking with…I know who it’s not, but that’s about it. So, if it’s your intent to be Anonymous, no problem. If not, you may have fallen victim to the “Name Game” we’ve been experiencing…Here’s to a good one! ✈️🙋🏻

        • Ah, Jim. Ok, better. I’m trying to rememeber…Months back…Did you write a poem about the way to a woman’s heart is a clean house, a clean kitchen? Something from back in your bachelor days? I don’t recall exactly what the puzzle was that day, but I’m remembering something about the poem…I should go back through my files…But does it ring a bell? Was that you? 🤔🙋🏻

        • We don’t know what happened, but this past week or so it seems like a bunch of names have disappeared, and the postings are all coming through reading Anonymous! It’s very odd. So, yes, I think you may have to, at least until the bug irons itself out. It’s a pain, I know…😔🙋🏻

  2. Anagrams went well,even plaque,though scorch did bring chorus to mind at first,solution was looking like air pressure at first.Second weekend in a row that this travellin man is at home.Our Naperville son and his daughters are on the Amtrak heading here, as we speak,for the Presidents Day weekend.

    • Good Morning, Prof. Pressure was handed to us…and even if you didn’t see the entire solution at first glance, Cabin wasn’t much of a stretch. Clever, as usual. Wishing you a great weekend with you family, Prof. Enjoy! ✈️🙋🏻

  3. Since her husband was complaining about the BRAND of toothpaste not removing the PLAQUE from his teeth, his wife decided to SEIZE the moment to SCORCH his ears about buying another toothbrush.

    • LOL! 👏🏻👏🏻 Bravo! Way to go, Chuck! On both counts! Great sentence, 🌟 and even better sentiment…I agree, why should she be the one to have to go get the new toothpaste? Some men, huh? 😂😂 Trying to juggle a few things here, I haven’t given it a look since 2 this morning…but as soon as I catch up, I’ll give it a shot.

  4. On the anonymous name problem, I have an idea which might be worth someone trying. Two or three weeks ago I made a change to my profile, and I haven’t had any of the anonymous problem. I clicked on the “portrait” icon in the upper right corner of the page. On the menu that brought up, I went to “My Profile”. On that page I put the name I wanted to go by in “Public Display Name”. Worth a try.

    • Hi Mike. Good Morning.. Definitely worth a shot. Thank you very much. I hope anyone out there experiencing the problem reads this and checks it out. It’s such a hassle to have to enter the info every time….I hope it works for the others. Thanks again…😘🙋🏻

  5. Hi all – I didn’t make any progress with SCORCH until I put CH together at the end and SC at the beginning and then saw it. Words with QU are usually easy, but PLAQUE took two or three tries. Figured the answer was PRESSURE, but had to write the letters to get CABIN.

    Speaking of letter tricks not working, SEIZE violates the “I before E” trick!

    “During the fight which ensued when the ranch owner tried to SEIZE the hot BRAND from the cattle rustler, a SCORCH mark was burned on the OK Corral’s commemorative PLAQUE.”

    Nice pickup on the ice cubes Angela, but the shading dots make them look like dice. Talk about a “dice cup”!

    Have a great day, everyone!

    • Hey G. I remember doing the “I” before “E” with Paul last year. There are a few exceptions, Seize being one. Confusing for the kids, that’s for sure. 👏🏻👏🏻Love the sentence. Kudos. I just got free, so I’m going to give it a shot. OK Corral! 😂😂 Cute! The ice cubes, Tks…and I do see what you mean about the dots/dice. Gambling again, huh? Maybe I should have gone with Ice CHIPS! 😉 Have yourself a good one, G!

    • Steve & Chuck….The Cabin Pressure was stressful! 😉…I succumbed to it on the second attempt! 🤔🙋🏻

      ° Always affected by CABIN PRESSURE, he never boarded a plane without his favorite BRAND of sedative…but when the Security Agent went to SEIZE it from him, he dropped the PLAQUE he was carrying, and felt a SCORCH on his hands as it scraped alongside them.

      ° Since he dreaded the ordeal of having the PLAQUE removed from his teeth, he tried a home remedy that not only caused him to SCORCH his lips, it burned a hole in his BRAND new shirt, and he sighed as he called the dentist looking to SEIZE the next available appointment.

      • ..and 🎵”I said, CABIN pressure drop
        Oh pressure, oh yeah
        CABIN Pressure’s gonna drop on you”🎵
        No pressure, love all the sentences! 😂🙋🏻‍♂️

  6. Clever puzzle this morning. Plaque took me the longest for some reason. This week I’ve had to back into words three times. However, eventually I figured them out. Weather is cool here this morning but the sun is shining. Of course in a minute we might have a torrential shower and hail. Hope all of you are keeping warm and have a good Saturday.

    • Hi Betty. I thought it to be very clever too. And I really liked the art work today. These smarmy looking guys always crack me up! You made me LOL with your weather analysis…Hail? ROTFL! We’re all facing such odd weather patterns…I’m holding out to see a locust…I’ll let you know where I end up! ..😂
      Here’s 🍷 to a great Saturday! Enjoy the sunshine while you may! ✈️🙋🏻

      • I’m going to use this in two places. Hey, “Toots”! 😂
        🎵”I said, pressure drop, Oh pressure, oh yeah
        Pressure’s gonna drop on you”🎵
        Well, on us actually. Betty ain’t kidding – started a nap an hour ago and the sun was shining, got up 5 minutes ago to amazing wind and a downpour, then while I’m typing, 🎵”Here comes the sun”🎵 again. Hail’s a definite possibility, and we may well have snow on the hills the next two nights with lows around 38 again. Much more interesting than usual. 🙋🏻‍♂️
