Good Morning, Everyone! πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎLOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION…πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŒΎ

🎢 It takes one good WELL…deep and ever-flowing, It takes one good WELL, to draw from night and day…Pure and fine it’s yours and mine and it’s always enoughWe got one good WELL overflowing with everlasting love…🎢 “One Good Well” – Don Williams 1989

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎ Drilling for oil’s not a breeze, it takes a manly crew,
It’s good this couple chose to HITCH with someone who just knew,
Like those who run a WINERY, it’s not born in the bottle,
Same thing goes for an Oil Rig it’s not something you CODDLE
You can’t go by just word-of-mouth, or advertise by BLIMP,
Professionals are what you need…or else you’ll be a simp.
So hats off to our couple here, and to the Roughnecks’ gems…
Things are in place – the Expert definitely DID WELL BY THEM!πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŒΎ

WELL, WELL, WELL…We’ve made it through a wonderful week of Jumble fun, and Saturday brings us another Old Favorite Foursome. We’ve seen HITCH on 05/11/17, BLIMP on 02/26/18, and our most recent entry, WINERY, on 07/01/18. But it’s CODDLE, that I LOCATED way back in 2015, that’s serving double duty today. It comes in as our oldest word, and also a repeat anagram, having appeared on 09/09/15, just as it does today: DOLCED. And now, on to our cartoon…

If I didn’t know better, I’d think that David has an affinity for the CRUDE…But he’s way too much of a gentleman! I say that because we seem to have had numerous OIL DRILLING related puzzles within the last two years, and one might think something was RIGGED here! Just sayin’…Anyway, today I think we’re on a farm in Iowa. Iowa? What UNEARTH you may say, since it’s not a state that immediately comes to mind when thinking OIL DRILLING. But there’s something oddly reminiscent of Grant Wood’s American Gothic couple here., don’t you think? I mean The Beverly Hillbillies also came to mind, but I can’t ever remember seeing Jed without his hat…What we do see is a somewhat older man and woman, profusely thanking DERRICK, the Foreman of an OIL RIGGING crew for drilling and erecting their OIL WELLS. And we see the three Pumpjacks in question, off in the distance, as the ROUGHNECK is overheard telling our farmers that he “located them for the best results”. DERRICK really DID WELL BY THEM!…And David, as always, you’ve done WELL by us!

Eye candy? There isn’t a HOLE LOT to see, besides our characters, the SPILLAGE PEOPLE. Our couple is wearing extremely old-fashioned clothing…he denim overalls over a plain white shirt, and she, in black (save for a peek of a white blouse), in a skirt almost to her ankles. He seems to have a very distinctive look about him, but I didn’t go DIGGING…and there’s his Pitchfork. We see a Clipboard in Derrick’s hand, and he’s outfitted in jeans to match his cap, and a gold shirt. They’re standing on an expanse of grass, at the side of a brown structure. Beyond it all, we see miles of brown Earth…But none of it is anything to get excited AUGER. So I think I’ll just go with the Patch on Derrick’s right pant leg, at his knee. A little CRUDE perhaps, but after OIL, he does do manual labor…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And OILways remember…OILS WELL that ends WELL! πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŒΎπŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. Good Morning…Paul and Chuck…OIL I can say is that it wasn’t OIL that easy doing WELL with these words…πŸ™„πŸ™‹πŸ»

    Β° As she watched the BLIMP ascend from the grounds of the WINERY, as a Mother she regretted that she did CODDLE him so much, since now that he decided to HITCH up with the adventurous girl next door, she realized that the sounds of him screaming in fear would be blamed on her…and that “DID WELL BY THEM” as a couple, would definitely not be a compliment she’d be hearing…

    Β° It needed more exposure, his business on the brink,
    Perhaps an advertising BLIMP would keep it from a sink…
    He needed a good publicist to HITCH up with real quick,
    Someone who’d help him CODDLE clientele…yea that’s the trick.
    The WINERY became his life, and clients were its’ stem…
    But disappointing sales disputed he DID WELL BY THEM

  2. Anagrams were a cinch,but the puzzle solution gave one a pause.After our trek East last week,we’re home on the weekend.Thus my early morning paper and Jumble in hand.

    • Good Morning, Professor. If you solve by the letters, WELL was the obvious key. Taking those letters out of the mix first, and THEM next, (prompted by “They” in the question), it leaves you looking for the 3 and 2 letter words. With BY being the only possible choice, you’re left with DID. It was a little tricky, but a good one. Very clever. Glad you’re enjoying some restful down time, Prof! Have a great day! πŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. Good morning. At the risk of being redundant. I must say the words were easy breezy. The cartoon answer was achieved once I wrote down the letters. I immediately saw Did and By and had Them for the second word which left Well. I just had to reverse the four letter words. Nice work Angela. First time hearing the song and loved your use of the words. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Yes, it was an easy, breezy go of it today. And I like how you got the solve…Thanks for the Shout Out, and I’m happy you enjoyed the music. Have a great day, Paul. πŸ™‹πŸ»

  4. The one HITCH in the plan to fly his family over the WINERY in the company BLIMP was that the grandson wanted mommy and daddy to CODDLE him because he was afraid of heights. A bit similar to yours, Angela, but I was trending in this direction before I read what you wrote!

    • Good Morning, Chuck. No explanation needed…I like the fact that we had similar thoughts, and I applaudπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» your sentence strcture. Serendipity is a wonderful thing! πŸ˜‰ Now let’s just pray you don’t start thinking too much like me when it comes to other things! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Wishing you a fabulous day, Chuck. Enjoy! πŸ™‹πŸ»

  5. Paul – Again, I’m with you. WINERY was my slow word, then the puzzle anagram was completely solved except I wrote “DID THEM BY WELL” I write my solves on a note sheet before I commit it to the newspaper page. As I sit there, staring at it, my wife (a Suduko wizard) passes by “How’s it going?” “It doesn’t make sense” I say. She puts one finger on each 4 letter word and crosses her fingers. Had to laugh – more than once!
