Good Morning, Everyone!🏌🏻♀️THE PITTER PUTTER OF NO DEFEAT?🏌🏻♂️
🎶Keep your head down and don’t get confused …Which way the wind blows, which club to use…Your concentration slips away, you’re not any good but that’s okay…After you swing, still on that tee, it sure is better than hitting three…And as you stand there, feeling like a stiff ..You better love the one you WHIFF…love the one you WHIFF, love the one you WHIFF, love the one you WHIFF…GOLF is silly, but it’s sad…if you ever make contact, you should be glad …Cause there it sits, looking back at you..take another cut, cause you’re hittin’ two…I know your heart aches, too much to bear… it’s the agony that we all share…so get it together right away, cause if you can’t, we’ll be here all day…After you swing, still on that tee, it sure is better than hitting three…And as you stand there, feeling like a stiff, love the one you WHIFF, love the one you WHIFF..love the one you WHIFF…🎶 “Love the One You Whiff” – Jake Trout & The Flounders 1998
🏌🏻♂️I know so many Golfers, some golfing every day,
My friend, a priest, the CLERGY man is also one who plays.
He played once with the BISHOP, I think he let him win…
I asked him was that cheating…and did he commit a sin?
Sometimes language gets SPICY when things don’t go just right,
My friend, the priest said often times he’s forced his tongue to bite…
He gets WOUND up, his nerves get tight, he says a silent prayer,
The others that he plays with tell him that that isn’t fair…
A priest, a prayer…what are the odds they’ll not be facing loss?
Most of the time they don’t trust him when they SWING BY THE COURSE!🏌🏻♂️
While three of our words today are old favorites, I was surprised to not find SPICY listed in the Jumble Data Base. So I’m calling it a newbie, but I have my RESERVATIONS Our other words have been seen a few times before. WOUND has appeared at least 10 times, and twice previously it’s been anagrammed exactly as today, (04/12/16, and 11/03/17). And with it last being PLAYED on 12/14/18, it comes in as our most recent entry. We’ve seen BISHOP IN 2012, 2015 and 2017, and CLERGY is appearing anagrammed exactly as it has been its last two times out, 08/28 and 10/28/18. What’re the odds? Talk about sweet repeats…It looks like someone obviously likes these arrangement of letters! Do we have a day of “more than once“…just like the theme of today’s puzzle? Yes, I believe we do…And with that being said, let’s PUTT our words to bed…and get on to our cartoon…
Today brings us out to a Golf course once again. Dedicated Jumble players will find it a very familiar theme, since we’ve been here many, many times over the past few years, and last visited as recently as May 24th. IRONically that day I was quoted as saying…. “If you remember, the last time we ‘SWUNG by a course‘, March 16th, we had a blast”. What’re the odds? As I said in the OPENing, Folks…it’s definitely a day of “more than once“! We see a couple, DRIVING up to the Driving Range, the man talking about how he needs to get some practice in, the woman reminding him that they’ll be returning the next day for a game. (They’ll be going “more than once)! I guess they live close by, and that’s why they could just…SWING BY (The) COURSE! Good one, David…I PARticularly like this one today!
Ok, eye candy. The entire background of the panel is shaded in GREEN, under a FADEd cloudy sky. Way back TO THE LEFT is a golf cart, with someone in the DRIVERS seat. The EXPANSE OF GREEN makes it difficult to SPOT the two players practicing their SWINGS, and it BLOCKS the lines of motion that Jeff’s DRAWn. I think whoever colored the panel was a little SHORT SIDED. The man at left has a look of surprise on his face, his mouth formed into the shape of a FRIED EGG, and if we FOLLOW THROUGH to the woman next to him, we see her with a STANCE and SWING reminiscent of a Baseball player…I’d go into it DEEPer, but I don’t want to be guilty of mixed metaSPORTS. A bucket of balls is seen on the ground besides them both. Nice detail, Jeff. Our main characters, (did I mention their names are PEBBLE and BROOKs)? are PULLING UP in a black convertible with red detailing…a very CLASSy looking car. PUTT there’s nothing about them that FLAGs out. So I think my EAGLE eye will just go with the look of PUTTER frustration on the woman players face. Poor girl…she looks like she’s having a STROKE…
So, There you have it, Folks…Done! Since I’m throwing a dinner PARty tonight, I should stop PUTTERing aROUND, and get STARTed with my day. Hopefully my PARTNER will PITCH in and give me a HAND, I mean that would be the FAIRWAY to do this…although sometimes he can be more of an ALBATROSS aROUND my neck. I guess it’s not really his FAULT, he’s big, and just a little too ROUGH with things. And since I plan on using my WEDGE WOOD China, it’s probably for the best. The set’s in perfect condition, not a single CHIP, and he might just end up BREAKing something, which is usually PAR FOR THE COURSE. So, I guess I’ll get going beFORE half the morning gets AWAY from me…Have a great day, Everyone…And to all the Golfers out there, let’s hope it stays in the low 80‘s today…if it gets any hotter…don’t play!🏌🏻♀️🙋🏻
