Good Morning, Everyone! 🎱 The CRIES Have It!🎱
🎶So c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon c’mon….CRY CRY Baby, CRY Baby, CRY Baby, CRY CRY Baby, CRY BABY..🎶. “Cry, Baby” – Garrett Mimms and The Enchanters 1963
🎱 A crying Baby sometimes can grate harshly on ones’nerves
It’s all a part of raising kids, it’s life throwing those curves.
The WEIGHT is sometimes heavy, we HOBBLE as we try,
To comfort and console them…but alas they still do cry.
It’s bad enough when INLAND, what really is the pits,
Is when you’re on an airplane…and everyone’s teeth grit.
Some people react RUDELY, like they don’t have a notion…
You try to calm the Baby, perhaps with a soothing LOTION.
But looking here at this cartoon…(Does Day Care get a HYPHEN)?
We can’t help see the stress as eight kids all the air do siphon…
I’m pretty sure we all relate, each of us can recall,
When crying from a Baby put us BEHIND THE EIGHT “BAWL” 🎱
Two things before I get to the KIDDIE Litter…One: I realize my rhyme is a little flighty…disjointed. These words were no CHILD’s PLAY…I had more than an ITTY BIT of STRESS trying to bring THEM ALL TOGETHER…And Two: Yesterday’s puzzle answer, BETTER BETTOR? It was gnawing at me all day. I don’t know how to explain it, but I just couldn’t shake this ODD feeling ..And let’s face it Folks..no one likes to be iGNAWED. Anyway, I went digging. And sure enough, back on 09/12/2009, there was a Jumble puzzle with the answer: BETTER BETTOR. Need I say What’re the ODDS? No, we did enough gambling yesterday. Anyway, I just needed to get these two things out there…Does me no good to keep stuff BOTTLEd up…Ok. Our words today. I’ll just go down the list …LOTION: 02/17/10 – 06/05/18. INLAND: 07/01/14 – 06/08/18. RUDELY: Looks like another new KID on the Block. WEIGHT: 01/22/16 – 03/04/17. HOBBLE: 12/22/12 – 03/13/19-Same anagram as today: BLOHEB. And lastly: HYPHEN: 08/10/14 – 09/30/18. PHEW! That EIGHT up half the page already…Oh, and none of these BABIES caused us to CRY Uncle! Ok…Time to CHANGE direction…
Today’s cartoon takes us into the “Happy Happy Joy Joy” Day Care Center. Strange name, no? Happy Happy? Joy Joy? I don’t get it. Actually, in light of what we’re seeing. I might have gone with..”CRY a Little Tenderness“, or perhaps “Great BAWLS of CRIER”...(But then again, that’s just me, I relate everything to music). We see two harried Day-Care Workers, and EIGHT crying Babies. (I’m sooo tempted again to say What’re the ODDS…(ratio), but I’m sure by now if I say it again..you’ll all just DIE). PER my calculations, this works out to four babies to each worker. Hmm. Is this where the Happy Happy Joy Joy comes in? I mean does it look like these two women are having a BAWL? ..And we can see and HEAR from the dialogue, that a chain reaction has now linked up, and now all EIGHT Babies are CRYING, when they should be napping. Definitely a case of Resisting a REST…But who do you call? The POOlice? And with all the kids CRYING, and needing attention, nothing’s getting done. No feedings, no diaper changes, etc. So our poor workers are way BEHIND in their work day today, and at a great disadvantage...It’s just a TEARable situation…And the CUES here for solving this puzzle? BEHIND. CRY=BAWL.and count those Babies…EIGHT. The “NUMBER” stated in our question…So, the workers were…BEHIND THE EIGHT “BAWL”. Good one, David…The wit of PLAY-DOH!
Ok, eye candy. Blue shaded nursery. 5 boys, 3 girls. Clockwise, Left to right…The blonde, holding a boy, pig-tailed girl, boy, boy, all three standing. The redhead, holding a boy who’s kicking. Girl with a bow in her hair, standing reaching out tonwards the worker. Girl, lying down, holding a toy bunny, and lastly a boy standing. Only 7 Cribs, which are made of netting are visible…But nothing’s CRYING OUT to me…Bottom line…EIGHT IS ENOUGH. So, There you have it, Folks..Done! Have a great day, Everyone! Happy Happy Joy Joy! 🎱🙋🏻
