Good Morning, Everyone!           📚  DO IT YOUR SHELF 📚

🎶 Baby, Baby, Baby, I love you, yes I do…Well it says so in this BOOK of love, ours is the one that’s true…(Oh, I wonder, wonder who, mmbadoo-ooh, who, who wrote the BOOK of love)…I wonder who (yeah)…Who wrote the BOOK Of Love 🎶…”Book of Love” – The Monotones 1958

📚 It’s so important that one knows that nailing large or small,
Is nothing to take lightly…if done wrong something will fall.
It must be FLUSH and secured right, and SAFELY in its place,
Too often people rush through it…and this is not a race.
We all have HONEY do lists…and if this job’s one on yours,
Take heed to bolt it properly so there’ll be no discourse…
A TIRADE if something goes wrong is not worth all the strife
A book’s a book, but accidents can cause a SHORT SHELF LIFE…📚

Having once again overBOOKed things, I’m faced with a schedule that’s got me UP AGAINST THE WALL this morning. So there was no time to READ through the Archives looking TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT the HISTORY of today’s words. But I’m just going to mention this. WOOD you believe that TIRADE was last seen just 11 days ago, on 06/16? And if you click on the link and CHECK IT OUT, you’ll see that it’s anagrammed exactly as it appears today. To a “T”!! DARTIE. And I’ll just LEAF that as it is, because I really don’t know what to READ into it…

Today’s puzzle deals with BOOKS, and what a NOVEL idea. I don’t think we’ve had that many puzzles about books, although I do remember one or two in particular about WOOD and WOODWORKING. One was on 03/05/18, and dealt with Sandpaper, and another was on 07/09/18 and was about a muscular handyman putting up a shed. The former came to mind, because FIR some strange RESIN I have a liking FIR Sandpaper, and the latter because..well I also have a liking FIR muscular handymen! Although that guy did SEAM like a real HAM..LET alone a TOOL! But I digress…BOOKS. Since they’re one of my first loves, I got excited when I first SAW our puzzle this morning. EMMA not disappointed at all! Jeff’s giving us a good example of what happens when worrying about pinching a PENNY…DREADFUL, really. We find ourselves in the home of JANE EYRE and DAVID COPPERFIELD, perhaps in MIDDLEMARCH. Someone mentioned that the year might be circa 1984, but upon seeing the Jumble book on the bottom SHELF, I realized that I was ILIAD advised. That particular VOLUME wasn’t even released until 2012. Most likely, Jane and David were sitting reading, and all of a sudden here came THE SOUND AND THE FURY. And they unfortunately discovered that THINGS FALL APART. Especially things that are CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN. They find the SHELVES of their new BOOKCASE broken and fallen…And we hear David saying, “YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR”. So, in the case of this BOOKCASE, it had a…SHORT SHELF LIFE. Good one, David! You’ve NAILED IT once again!

Eye candy? The Bookcase is walnut. Three gray books are seen on the floor, one titled JUMBLE, and a single page appears to have become loosened from one of them. A pale blue bud vase lays beside them, holding two daises, and a tawny cat is seen curled around Jane’s ankles. The bottom SHELF, lying askew, holds eight yellow books, with the aforementioned JUMBLE one showing at front. Jane is holding what might be another book, or perhaps it’s the instruction manual for the bookcase. TOO LITTLE TOO LATE, am I right? And David is shown with a hammer, again, BEATING A DEAD HORSE...But today’s winner? If you look real. closely, you can actually READ the four puzzle words on the cover of the “Rock ‘n’ Roll Jumble” Book: Joule, Lolly, Rocket, and Nimble, the caption…”Shake, Rattle, and Roll with These Rockin’ Puzzles”, the question to the puzzle…”Everyone’s going crazy for that…” and it’s answer…ROCK ‘n’ ROLL JUMBLE. Now how’s that for a STORY? I had GREAT EXPECTATIONS, Jeff…and you didn’t let me DOWN! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And a WORD of advice I’d like to HAMMER home…Buy American! 📚🙋🏻

***FYI*** Just a reminder, all the blue shaded wording is a link, and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Jumble puzzle book, along with a host of others can all be purchased through Triumph Books….

  1. Good morning. My choice for hardest word is Tirade. The others came automatically but that one took a couple of minutes to finally hit home. Once I wrote down the 14 letters Shelf appeared then Short and Life came into view. Nice work Angela,your song choice brought back fond memories. Thanks for all the extra blue bits. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Hey Brooklyn, Good Morning! Did you read the comments from 6/16? TIRADE slowed you down last time too. You’re a creature of habit! 😘 And if the numbers are any indication, you’re in good company. Thanks for the Shout Out, we definitely seem to be on the same PAGE with a lot of the music…Hmm I just realized something…We had a BOOK puzzle two days ago! LOL! I really need to get my —- together! Hope your day’s going well, Brooklyn! Ciao, Bello! 📚🙋🏻

  2. …What I READ into today’s words…📚🙋🏻

    ° He was FLUSH for the first hour, so he felt SAFELY confident, but once the guy next to him, drinking that mixture of scotch and HONEY, went off on a TIRADE, his luck changed…and he figured here goes another day at a craps table with a SHORT SHELF LIFE…

    ° Her compliments caused him to FLUSH, he wasn’t used to praise
    (His ex-wife liked a TIRADE, whenever fault was raised)…
    She cooed and whispered HONEY, it made him melt inside,
    She clung to him and others were aware he felt such pride.
    He hoped he’d SAFELY keep her and have her for a wife,
    And not end up with heartache if they had a SHORT SHELF LIFE!

  3. Even though the congregation knew someone had to SAFELY FLUSH the HONEY bee nest away from the front entrance to the church, they knew a TIRADE from the insects would be forthcoming.

    • BEES BEJEEZ! Good Morning, Chuck. Missed you y’day. 👏🏻👏🏻 Bravo! Hope all is well! 📚🙋🏻

  4. The over all solution,” short shelf life” was pretty much a blind solve,much easier than the tirade anagram solution.Chalk me up as another vote for tirade being the toughest anagram,

    • Good Morning, Professor. I agree, the solution was pretty much a given. And TIRADE seems to be the stumper today…Have a good one, Prof! 📚🙋🏻

  5. I had an instant blind solve on the final answer, and worked backwards on all the CW’s. Angela, interesting song choice. I could be wrong, but it seemed pretty obvious they were lip-synching. Funny they called themselves the Monotones. Have you seen the Rock ‘n’ Roll Jumble puzzle book? Does it have the recent Rock Jumbles, especially the ones with the Beatles?

    • Hi Mike. I got the solve immediately too, it’s a pretty common phrase. And a clever solution. You know I wanted to comment about the video clip, but I was rushing….What camp, right? The lip syncing, the hairdos, both male and female, Dick’s Top Ten board…the whole thing was a trip. Too funny. But it is a cool song…I still listen to it. The book… I had it years ago…I don’t rememeber what was in it, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t save any of them once I finished all the puzzles. Maybe Jeff or David can shed some light as to what’s inside? 🤔🙋🏻

  6. Hi all – Another “-LY” word, so the words and answer were quick except (and I probably said this last time, but I don’t remember it), I RATED TIRADE the hardest. Just had to stare at it for awhile. (Update – just read your link to last time Angela, and yup, that’s what I said all right 😂)

    Any shelf-related mishap can be blamed on the cat. And thanks for the book details, Angela. Even magnifying it online, I could only read the title and the caption. He heard the shelves shake and rattle, and the vase rolled onto the floor. Maybe that’s actually Big Joe Turner and his one-eyed cat who had been peeping in the seafood store.
    Great song, also. And had to laugh at Penny Dreadful.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    “The boy knew his freedom had suddenly developed a SHORT SHELF LIFE because his parents would go on a TIRADE upon finding that you cannot SAFELY FLUSH HONEY down the toilet”.

    • PS – My copy of “Book of Love” had a spot where it would stick, and TO THIS DAY I can’t recall it without hearing “In chapter three remember-emember-emember….” 😂

    • Hey Steve…👏🏻👏🏻 Your sentence had me LOL!! And thanks for the Shout Out. I tried getting in as many book titles as I could….until the whole KITTEN caboodle started to hurt! 😂 Hope your day’s going well! 📚🙋🏻

  7. Maybe someone already said it but it would have been even funnier if the bookcase itself was one of those short wide ones!

    • SHORT shelf! I get it! 😂😂 No, no one’s mentioned that. Good evening, Clay. Nice to,hear from you…📚🙋🏻
