Good Morning, Everyone!                      👖 WEAR AND TEAR 👖

🎶 She’s Venus in blue JEANS, Mona Lisa with a ponytail…She’s a walkin’ talkin’ work of art, She’s the girl who stole my heart…My Venus in blue JEANS is everything I hoped she’d be…A teenage goddess from above, and she belongs to me…🎶 “Venus In Blue Jeans” – Jimmy Clanton   1962  http://tinyurl.com/y3wne5b9

👖There’s nothing fits you better than a worn out pair of jeans,
The kind that feel so good and that you keep by any means.
Despite a CLOSET full of clothes, no EITHER/or you wear…
They look SUPERB, you GLANCE at them, there THROWN upon a chair…
There’s nothing more IRONIC than that as they start to shred,
The realization hits you, and it’s one you’ve always dread…
So looking at them fall apart…and turning into dregs…
You face the fact the time has come and they’re ON THEIR LAST LEGS 👖

The On-line sites are FASHIONably late today….And I was TORN between EITHER waiting longer or giving you at least this much… I’ll be back as soon as the sites see FIT to publish…👖🙋🏻

I’m back…Our words today, all old favorites, are kind of middle of the roaders. Nothing to TEAR your hair out over, but not all recognizable at first GLANCE. The Early Birds thought that SUPERB was an excellent anagram, and decided that if any word would be deemed the stumper…that’s the one that would FIT the bill…And surprisingly for a Sunday, none of our words are all that NEW. THROWN came in as the most recent, from last August, while CLOSET dates back to June 2017. SEW, enough with all this…Let’s TEAR ourselves away and get to our cartoon…

As I mentioned earlier, the on-line sites that I use to afford me all the eye candy haven’t published this morning, putting me at a slight disadvantage…But I will try to look as CLOTHESly as I can to the panel…Finding ourselves today in the bedroom of a young teen, we see her having a CLOTHES ENCOUNTER with her parents. She’s WEARing a pair of terribly ripped JEANS, with holes from top to bottom on both LEGS. While it is stylish to have TEARS in JEANS, as her Mother points out, this pair has definitely seen better FRAYS, and her Father seems to disapprove of the HOLE concept. He’s telling her that he’d like to buy her “new jeans“, and our girl does OWN up to the fact that it SEAMS her beloved JEANS have definitely “fallen apart” Let’s face it, Folks…You needn’t be a JEANious to see that they’re obviously… ON THEIR LAST LEGS! Good one, David..That wit..it must be in your JEANS!

Ok, Eye candy. Our girl is WEARing a pink ruffled top with black boots, while her Mom wears a purple T-Shirt over JEANS. Dad’s clad in what looks like a University of Michigan T-Shirt..again without the on-line cartoon that I’m able to enlarge, it’s hard to read. The shirt is blue, WORN with brown pants. In the background is a chest of drawers, with a round mirror. And on the floor, I can see another pair of JEANS, what looks like a skirt or two, and a pair of lace-up shoes. But the candy? I’m going with our girls’ hair. Jeff’s given her long beautifully coiled curls. One of the best hair STYLEs he’s ever drawn…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! Enjoy the Oscars tonight…I’m hosting a party….and we plan to TEAR the house down! 👖🙋🏻

  1. Chuck B…Good Morning…FIT it all in…👖🙋🏻

    ° Once he came out of the CLOSET, they spoke of the married couple as if they were ON THEIR LAST LEGS, and felt that they had THROWN their SUPERB careers away, but it was IRONIC because in this business, every critic, at a GLANCE, EITHER lived through a tabloid scandal themselves, or knew someone who did…

    • That’s super, Angela. I worked on it for about an hour and finally gave up as I was getting a headache 😣. Strong winds blowing outside have all of us a bit edgy. Hope your day is going well!

      • Hey Chuck. Good Afternoon. Thank you. …And none of this is worth getting a headache over, that’s for sure…Hope you’ll feel better. We’re having some of the winds here also, but supposedly nothing compared to what’s coming. And I can understand your concern, It’s unnerving to say the least. Scares the bejesus out of me…Stay safe, be careful, good luck. Hope we all do well. 👖🙋🏻

  2. Morning, Angela and everyone –
    Got a big kick out of jeanious.
    The answer had me stumped for some time. I thought of a few relevant words – torn and holes – and wrote down any other words that I could find, including LAST. My break came when I was looking for words that have SH, TH or GH and spotted THEIR.
    We’re expecting high winds here.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. Nice to see you. I recognized the phrase right away., because it’s one we use often, so I didn’t need to work from the letters. But I like your approach to it. You worked it out well. Thank you.JEANious, made me chuckle too! And we’ve had very heavy rain since last night that’s just subsiding. But like you, we’re being warned about the heavy winds. Let’s hope we have no damage.Wishing you a safe, happy day, Caroline! Be well. 👖🙋🏻

  3. FYI: THE ON-LINE PUZZLE HAS GONE UP, AND I’M ABLE TO TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT THE GIRL’S HAIRDO. IT’S A LONG CORNROW STYLE, AND JEFF HAS DRAWN IT MASTERFULLY. Kudos, Jeff. And the Fathers’ T-Shirt is a Michigan one. 🙋🏻

  4. Clever puzzle this morning. No trouble with the clue words but the cartoon answer took me a little longer than usual to figure out. All of a sudden the light dawned and I figured it out. Happy Sunday to all. Keep warm and dry wherever you are.

  5. Good evening. Just realized that I never posted. My reaction to today’s jumble was the same as Betty. No problem with the words but had a heck of a time with the cartoon. The funny part is that the answer was staring you in the face. By the way,another cute finish. Nice job all around Angela. Until tomorrow stay well.
