IY   SK   EN   ET   =   STINK EYE 

Good Morning, Everyone!              👁 SEEING I to I 👁

🎶 So let’s leave it alone ’cause we can’t see EYE to EYE…There ain’t no good guy, there ain’t no bad guy…There’s only you and me and we just disagree….Ooh ooh ooh, oh oh oh…🎶 “We Just Disagree” – Dave Mason 1977  https://tinyurl.com/y2dhdclj

👁  I could be all alone with this, but somehow I don’t see,
Why unappealing this guy is, he doesn’t look DIRTY.
Ok, he might be sweaty and looking kind of limp,
But then again, he’s working out..his health care he don’t SKIMP
With life being so HECTIC, I give this guy his due,
He’s smart enough to exercise to that EXTENT he’s true.
And unless he’s notorious for having poor hygiene,
I think a kiss is kind of sweet, romantic like a teen…
Again, it’s my opinion, but romance you can’t deny…
Might someday not be there to see…I’d forgo the STINK EYE…👁

Once again today we’re SEEing words that are all Sweet Repeats. And except for the Early Birds SWEATING a little over HECTIC, the anagrams were easily recognizable. Hectic, making its 7th appearance since 2015, did appear once before exactly as it is today, but that was back in 2016. SKIMP comes in as our most recent entry, having last been seen on August 3rd, and DIRTY comes in as our oldest, going back to June of 2016. And to that EXTENT…let’s JOG over to our cartoon…

Early morning, lounging over the paper with a hot cup of coffee, we find ourselves in the kitchen of BARBara Race. Her husband, MILES has just finished his workout, and enters the room smiling, looking to greet his wife with a kiss. Obviously a little SWEATY, and not exactly smelling like a ROWS, he gets a BARB in return…literally. Put off by his attempt at AROMAnce, she pushes him away, all the while glaring at him and telling him to go shower. So we’re to SCENTS that he STINKS. The eyes, the nose…but not the lips…BARB has chosen to give him the STINK EYE. Good one, David…WEIGHT to go!

So, eye candy. The panel is completely shaded in blue. A coffee maker is seen on the counter at back with about two cups remaining in the carafe. Jeff’s even drawn the programmable dials. Nice detail. MILES, clad in a gray T-Shirt, has large visible sweat stains across his chest and under his arms, and he has a red sweatband holding his hair back. Barb, dressed in a blue ruffled collar top, has her newspaper opened to the comics on the left, and the classifieds showing a car for sale on the right. Three comic panels are showing. What I believe to be Nancy is at top, Pearls Before Swine is in the middle, and I can’t get a READ on the bottom one which has a 3-word title, and shows 4 men standing in line. If anyone recognizes it, please let us know. A completed Jumble puzzle is shown to the right of the comics, featuring a male character. A yellow pencil lies in front of the paper, and there’s a Jumble Coffee Mug filled to the brim and emanating steam placed to left, signifying Barb may be a leftie. Nice. But the eye shot this morning? The Heart on the mug is colored red just as it appears on the actual product.♥️ Truth in advertising! So…There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…and I do hope Miles gets his kiss…I’d like to think he and Barb are SWOLE mates…👁🙋🏻

  1. Good Morning, Chuck…Not the easiest to work with…🤔🙋🏻
    ° With the day being so HECTIC, she drew the STINK EYE when she went to the EXTENT of leaving DIRTY dishes in the sink, and having to SKIMP on the kids’ bedtime stories…

    ° It was more than a DIRTY look…they went to the EXTENT of giving him the full STINK EYE, after his HECTIC day forced him to SKIMP on the dinner menu…

    • Good Morning, Clay. Funny, I had a feeling that you’d know…or if not, do the research. 😉 And here you are! I looked at if for the longest time, and still drew a blank. Maybe Jeff will enlighten us.👁🙋🏻

      • To me it looks like a line of people standing at a boxing ring and the title is “The Punch Line”.

        • Hey Steve. Tks. You may be right. But isn’t it an Indie comic called just “Punchline”? And drawn like the Action Comics are? You know the “Marvel” look? This looks so,..you know “comic”! I can’t think of the right words! JEFF??? HELP!!!! 😉🙋🏻

          • I don’t know the comic at all. All I saw on the web was a website or syndicate called The Punch Line Cartoons.

            • Oh, ok. Tks. No SWEAT. 😉 I really hope Jeff takes time OUT from his WORK to help me out here…It drove me crazy 3:30 this morning…and it’s still bugging me! 😉🙋🏻

  2. Good morning. Another follow up to yesterday where one word took longer to get then the three others combined. This time it was Hectic. The cartoon answer gave me a big problem because I automatically thought the answer was brush off then heave hoe. After writing down the letters and seeing that both my choices for the finish wasn’t there it was hard to get it out of my head. I never did and finally looked it up. I bet if you took a survey,any one of my two answers would be accepted better. Like yesterday the guys hit a grand slam,today I’d say they struck out. But hey,tomorrow is another day. Angela,nice song but did it fit the cartoon.? You can’t ask me because I couldn’t even finish the puzzle. Thanks for all the hidden treasures of which I never see half of what you get. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. I was thinking of that when I was writing this morning, and meant to include it in my post. I don’t know if it’s a phrase known by most people. And your two phrases are much more tried and true ones. I just happened to know it, and guessed it before I looked at the words. So your statement about what’s acceptable is definitely a valid one. We’ll have to see what opinions come in…And as I mentioned, Hectic caught my friends too. My song choice? IDK. I took the outlook that the rejection was unnecessary, and the song just came to mind. You may be right, it might not be a good fit. Just my take on it. And as always, you’re very welcome for the eye candy tidbits, it’s my pleasure, Thanks for the Shout Out. Have a good one, Paul. 👁🙋🏻

  3. Due to the EXTENT of the damage caused by the DIRTY-rotten burglars, a HECTIC atmosphere was created and the family had to SKIMP on many of the plans they had scheduled for Christmas.

  4. You’re right, Angela. Not the easiest of material to work with.. Have a great day and better night!!

    • Good Morning, Chuck. Not easy, but you’ve definitely managed to make it work! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻Kudos! Excellent entry! “Dirty-rotten”! I love it! And wishing you a great day and night too! 🙋🏻

    • Good Morning, Chuck. Yep,..you’re not alone. As I said, it had a few of the guys SWEATing this morning! Have a good one, Chuck! 👁🙋🏻

  5. Hi everyone –
    Have to catch up reading later, but I wanted to note that I’m not familiar with the expression “stink eye ,” though I was able to find the answer.

    • Hi Caroline. Good Morning. I have a feeling that it’s way more a colloquially used term than a mainstream one. Knowing it, it came to me immediately, and I took it as a given, but as I mentioned to Paul, I think we may learn differently. Thanks for the heads up! 👁🙋🏻

  6. Another vote for hectic. I believe it has stumped me before. I too am not familiar with the term stink eye but did figure it out. Hope all of you have a good Wednesday.

    • Good Morning, Betty. I just spoke with 2 of my nephews, 18 and 23, and they both said that it’s not something they’ve ever heard from anyone outside of their age groups. You know what’s coming to my mind though? Back in 2013, at Nelson Mandela’s funeral, there were photos taken of Michelle Obama disapproving of the President laughing and taking a selfie with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt and David Cameron, Prime Minister of Britian. I remember that the glare she gave him was dubbed the “stink eye”, and if I’m not mistaken, he ended up changing seats. The “stink eye” got a lot of mileage after that! 😉 And Hectic seems to be causing a landslide! 😉 Here’s to a good Wednesday for you too, Betty! 👁🙋🏻

  7. Thanks for the explanation, Angela. I do remember the photo now but forgot about the “stink eye” comment though it is apropos. I learn something new every day which is a good thing.

    • You’re very welcome Betty. I just remember loving Michele’s down to earth reaction…and then reading a few articles where the term was used..And the Albert Einstein quote? “Once you stop learning, you start dying”. I know you live by it, as I do. 😘🙋🏻

  8. Hi all – Had to look 3 or 4 times before seeing HECTIC. First thought BRUSH OFF for the answer, but there was no O or F. Likewise for KISS OFF, no chance for COLD SHOULDER. Just before writing down the letters, saw EYE and then the answer. I have heard the expression but not very often at all which is why it didn’t come to mind right away.

    Have a great day everyone. The sun came out for a few minutes – I’d forgotten what it looked like.

    Ok Angela, two musical off-topics:
    The last two lines of your poem instantly brings Janis to mind:
    🎵”So if anyone comes along
    He’s gonna give you some love and affection,
    I say get it while you can
    Don’t you turn your back on love, no no no”🎵

    And your song choice – one of my absolute favorites from former Traffic member Dave Mason’s solo album “Alone Together”. There were two albums in particular that completely swamped the Bay Area airwaves in that time period – this one and Van Morrison’s “Moondance”. I have the marble swirl version of the record:
    “About 30% of the records were produced in so-called marble vinyl, a swirled mix of pink, brown and beige, rather than the usual black vinyl.”

    • Hey Steve….If I get a chance, I’m going to go back and see how everyone fared the last times with HECTIC. It really seems to be a stumper today. As for my song…Is it a cut from “Alone Together”? I think it’s off “Let it Flow”, which I have somewhere in this pile! 😉 I’d have to dig it out, and again, if I get a chance…🙄 I’m juggling, as usual…I’ve always liked Dave Mason, and this song is on 2 of my Playlists. It’s always been a favorite, and TBT, holds a personal meaning. He has a great voice, IMO, he’s mellow to the point of being a comfort…And your first thought for the solve “Brush off” matches Pauls’…a much more commonly known term..but I think you both, along with 2 of the Lous, missed the forest…David stressed the word SMELLED, and there’s all those squiggly “reek” lines emanating from our boys’ head…(which I also failed to mention as part of the eye candy in my post…and which may just have been the key to the whole solution)! Were you able to see them? I guess I just got caught up with the mugs’ heart and went with it…You know me…I’m a sucker for the Romance! Have a good one, G! ❤️🙋🏻

      • Oops, you’re right of course, it’s on “Let It Flow”. “Alone Together” saturated my brain waves as well as the airwaves. Moving too fast this AM. 🙋🏻‍♂️

        • I know the feeling…🙄 Been there…one time too many! And I only remember the album because I have it. But ask me what we had for breakfast! 😂😂 🙋🏻

  9. JUST AN FYI: Amongst the usual commenters, HECTIC caught everyone but Steve each and every time it appeared in the past puzzles. That really STINKS, don’t you think? So what shall we call it? How about we coin it a REPEAT DEFEAT? Do you think that WORKS OUT? ….Let me know! 😉🙋🏻
