Good Morning, Everyone!      πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈWE THANK THEM FOR THEIR “SIR”VICE πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈ

🎢 Those schoolgirl days of telling tales and biting nails are gone…But in my mind I know they will still live on and on…But how do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume? It isn’t easy, but I’ll try…If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky in letters…That would soar a thousand feet high…’To SIR With Love’…🎢 “To Sir With Love” – Lulu  1967

πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈAs their hands HOVER saluting a man who’s thought of highly,
And the stance that they show BODILY is sharp and also spryly,
They know there’ll be no MISHAP, as the man is shown respect…
And the honor that they’re offering is no where circumspect.
Dressed in uniforms so SHINY, they never would defame,
The General who they address only BY HIS “SIR” NAME πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈ

GENERALly speaking, I didn’t think any of our words today would be new. But the search was proving me wrong. Looking through our PRIVATE Archives, HOVER didn’t rise up to meet me. But you know me, I’m known for my MEDAL…so I stuck with it, and dug deep. You know, like TRENCH WARFARE…it may be a last DITCH effort, but you give it all you got…And what I got…was tired of looking! So even though it seems hard to believe, HOVER appears to have never been enLISTED. A MAJOR letdown…But I did locate our other three words, and they RANK as follows: SHINY, our newest word, seen as recently as 04/12, MISHAP with a showing on 12/27/18, and BODILY coming in as our oldest entry, bringing up the REAR, ADMIRALbly as of 01/03/2017. Our anagrams are all new though, and none of the words warranted any REVIEW. We just went right DOWN THE LINE…Ok, with that all taken care of, let’s ATTACK our cartoon…

Today we find ourselves paying ATTENTION to a GENERAL reviewing a troop of SOLDIERS. With the dialogue telling us that he approves of their appearance, he’s quoted as saying, “Make us proud”. And although Jeff has chosen to keep the soldiers’ replies PRIVATE, it’s safe to assume that they’re chanting, respectfully in unison…” Yes, SIR“. They’re calling the General BY HIS “SIR” NAME! Good one, David…I SALUTE you!

Ok. Eye candy. Today’s panel is pretty BEAR..ARMS not sure there’s even a COLONEL of candy to speak of…We see three soldiers silhouetted in black behind the three MAJOR characters. All dressed in olive green-khaki camouflage uniforms,  the only DISTINGUISHable items are the T-Shirts seen at the necklines of both the General and the female Soldier. His is gray, while hers is black. In GENERAL, you’d think they’d be the same color, right? You know, UNIFORM. But I think I’ll just go with the patch on the sleeves of all three. It’s red with a small blue square at top right. It could be our FLAG, but I’m WAVEring on it…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…and always be sure to thank a member of our Military…for their SIRvice…πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

PS: And yes, I know a REAR ADMIRAL is an Officer of either the Navy or the Coast Guard, not the ARMY…But I just couldn’t resist the pun!

  1. Good morning. Another easy day of jumble. From the words to the cartoon it was just a tad harder than our Monday one. Loved the clever cartoon answer. Once I wrote down the letters I was able to solve it rather quick. Loved your song choice Angela and your use of the words. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn…I don’t know how it happened, but I posted my second piece, and then noticed 3 comments were already here….Maybe because I work with 2 iPads? IDK! …Anyway…you’re on the money, Paul, it was an easy go of it. Thanks for the Shout Out, and I hope you have a great day. Stay cool…and wear a hat if you’re out there playing Bocce! πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. Thanks. This is the first time I cheated to make the sentence , l love the way you explained it. I’M 73 & do the 3 puzzles every day .

    • Good Morning, Elaine. And God bless you! I think there’s nothing more commendable than keeping our minds active…3 puzzles a day! Bravo! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» But we never use the word cheating here, Elaine…we just call it checking our guesses! πŸ˜‰ And thank you so much for your kind words, it makes all the work worthwhile. Wishing you a great day., and stay wellπŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈ.πŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. The pilots set their craft to hover above the shiny orb and reviewed all instruments to ensure that no mishap would occur and prevent bodily harm to the first men on the moon. Overall the words facile and so too the solve, especially for a vet. Thanks for the memories guys.

    • Good Morning, Jamu. And yes, as I just told Paul, I’m totally in agreement. It’s pretty much an easy, breezy one today. (Altho I did overhear one or two of the Early Birds PRIVATEly saying that the solve made them pause for a moment)…And congrats on your sentence.πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»..well done! Have a good one, Jamu! πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

  4. Here’s my SALUTE to David’s words today….πŸ™‹πŸ»

    Β° They were blaming the MISHAP which caused BODILY harm to three Firefighters on the new recruit, but realized later that the glare from the SHINY ornaments that were hung to HOVER over the doorways was the cause…and they apologized to him, calling him BY HIS SURNAME…

    Β° The BODILY constrictions that resulted from the Spanx,
    Caused her too much discomfort, would she wear it? Uh, no thanks
    She didn’t care how SHINY or how soft the garment felt,
    There’d definitely be a MISHAP and she knew there’d be a welt.
    She felt her insides HOVER, it just squeezed in the wrong place,
    And she knew the pain ensuing must be showing on her face…
    It all was just too much to bear, manufacturers to blame…
    She saw it on the label… guilty one…BY HIS SURNAME

  5. Yo Elaine – What say we hop & TWIST again or maybe stomp a MASHED POTATO or stagger in LOCO MOTION all the way home? Yeah me too. Thank YOU for inspiring more memories. Angela?

    • Angela? Angela, what? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I’m not running a dating service here…I got my hands full just juggling my own love life! πŸ˜‰ Whoever this is…(Jamu)? You’re on your own! πŸ˜‰πŸ™‹πŸ»

  6. Good morning everyone. Not feeling well the last few days. I’m glad to hear that our friend Lelia is doing fine. My friend Paul and I were concerned about her health. Wow, she hit the 80th, how wonderful. The puzzle was easy breezy. I’m waiting for the hard ones. Until tomorrow, stay well and puzzle on. Marie from Brooklyn.

    • Hi Marie, Good Morning. Sorry to hear you’re feeling poorly. I was thinking of you. Yes, an easy one today…but still so cute and clever. Hoping you’ll be feeling better soon. Take care of yourself. πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

  7. Hi all – I just happened to see three words and the answer at first glance. Had to write the letters and look twice to see MISHAP.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Angela, I’m glad you went with β€˜rear admiral’ because it made me laugh, the line β€œfrom crayons to perfume” reminded me of the Philly soul song β€œCowboys to Girls”, and last but not least, the clothing poem was funny. So she thought the garment would be a LULU, but it turned out to be a LEMON, eh?

    β€œThe MISHAP that occurred when the SHINY new drone failed to HOVER caused great BODILY injury”.

    • LOL..Have you ever tried wiggling into some Spanx? Take my word for it, SQUASH is what comes to mind, not Lemons! πŸ˜‰ I personally have a love/hate relationship with mine…The things we do for love…πŸ˜‚ But there’s some outfits that just demand the Penance! 🀬 Nice sentence,πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»…and Thanks for the Shout Out…But now that I think of it…Spanx refereed to as clothing? That’s a STRETCH!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Have a good one, G! πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

      • I’m very happy to tell you that the answer to your question is NO! πŸ˜‚ But then, I was a late BLOOMER. I did BUSTLE about this morning on my errands but of CORSET wasn’t as uncomfortable as you describe. πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

        • LOL…πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» One for each! But my good man, you’re a little off BASE…The bustle and corset? It’s not like that..and make no BONES about it! It’s all about being sleek, and smooth…and perhaps..you know, losing a rib or two in the process…A small price to pay in order to stay in CONTROL! πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»

          • I see – it’s a cinch! πŸ˜‚ (β€œSmall price to pay”, from β€œSee and Solve” the other day!) πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

  8. A two for one…From To Sir With Love!

    • Hey Clay…πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» How cool is that, right? A double whammy! Nice catch! It was a great movie, wasn’t it? I have it in one of these cabinets around here…I should watch it again. It’s been years. Hope you’re enjoying your day! πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€βœˆοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»
