Good Morning, Everyone! ⏱ TIME…WAITS FOR WOE MAN? ⏱
🎶 Does anybody really know what TIME it is (I don’t)…Does anybody really care (care about TIME)..If so I can’t imagine why (no, no)…We’ve all got TIME enough to cry…🎶 “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is” – Chicago 1969 http://tinyurl.com/y3jxmyme
⏱ Not to MINCE words, but maybe what they needed was to be
A little more firm with the SCOUT from the clock company…
While working with a deadline, it just would seem HUMANE,
To have an idea when they’d need more workman and a crane.
Delays are like a WEAPON when there’s payrolls to be met,
And anything that’s not nailed down can only cause regret…
I guess they’ll have to wait it out, to pressure they’ll succumb
The best laid plans of mice and men?…Simply WHEN THE TIME COMES ⏱
The Ides of March...Supposedly the day to settle all debts. To us here in Jumble-Land? A day to close out our WORK week with a …“WOP WOP“? Yep, WEAPON! Cut like a knife! Seen only once before, way back in 2015, making it our oldest rerun, it definitely took its toll! With all four of our Friday words being Sweet Repeats, and all of our anagrams being new, it was Weapon and SCOUT, our most recent entry from June 11th, ’18, that caused the Early Birds a slight bit of a pause. But since TIME waits for no man…Let’s get on to our cartoon…
Today we find ourselves outdoors, at a construction site. A CLOCK Tower is either going up, or shoring up, and we see a man and a woman discussing the arrival and installation of the Tower’s new CLOCK. Obviously on a schedule, and counting every MINUTE, their conversation, and the rather worried looks upon their faces, leads us to believe that they may be SECOND-guessing themselves. Is the Clock company reliable? Will their deadline be met? Does TIME wait for this man..and WOEman? I guess we’ll know…WHEN THE TIME COMES! Ha! Now how’s that for a reason to COUNT our blessings? Good one, David! Once again you’ve made the WAIT worthwhile!
Ok, eye candy. Our man of the HOUR, is dressed very nattily in a purple suit jacket, black pants, a white dress shirt and a pink tie..Hmm. Ok, maybe not so nattily…We see him holding blueprints in his hand, showing the Tower built to scale. There’s the MINUTE figure of a man standing alongside the Tower…Nice detail, Jeff. Our woman, well..she looks very well PUT TOGETHER. Clad in a fitted black blazer, worn over a gray top and gray slacks, she’s sporting a single chain of jewelry at her neck. And we woman know how you’ll never SECOND-guess yourself with the classic understatement of a single piece of TIMELESS jewelry.
But of course it’s the Brown Tower itself that STANDS to be the highlight of our cartoon. Set upon a gray marble slab, it’s surrounded by lush landscaping. There’s scaffolding surrounding it, and the space for the missing Clock is hard to aVOID! But if you look closely, you’ll see that there’s three Construction Workers standing working on the Tower, at the SECOND, third and top level. They each have trowels in their hands, but the one at far left can be seen holding a HAWK! Now that flies! http://tinyurl.com/y585zfty
And how’s that for a piece of eye candy? I tell you, Folks, you HANG out here long enough, you learn something each and every TIME! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone….And it’s TIME for me to throw in the TROWEL! ⏱🙋🏻
