Good Morning, Everyone! ย  ย  ย  ย ๐Ÿ‘—TOO CLOTHES FOR COMFORT?๐Ÿ‘—

๐ŸŽถWhy do birds suddenly appear…Every time you are near? Just like me, they long to be…CLOTHES to you…๐ŸŽถ ย “Close to You” – The Carpenters 1970

๐Ÿ‘—There’s nothing quite like Fashion, to someone who’s like me,
Who loves the cuts and colors and new Season’s mystery…
I’d be a real head HONCHO if I could just control,
The CLAMOR Fashion causes… my finances feel it’s toll…
But it’s not PETTY, there’s no SHAME to be a Boutique Queen,
Let’s face it Girls, that’s why it’s there…just waiting to be seen,
And this girl is so lucky, she’ll never need bemoan
The lack of something new to wear…this Boutique’s “CLOTHES” TO HOME ๐Ÿ‘—

As our work week draws to a CLOTHES, we have four words today that are all old favorites and Sweet Repeats going back for years. HONCHO was last seen in 2017, while the others were all part of 2018 game play. And we have new anagrams, except for TYEPT. It’s appeared exactly as it does today on two previous outings, 09/03/15, and 01/30/18.. But it was CLAMOR, that caused some noise with the Early Birds this morning…which leads me to believe that it may be the stumper of the day. Ok…let’s CLOTHES this out and move on to our cartoon…

Today we’re drawn like a moth to theย FRAME…A Boutique CLOTHES enough to visit every day…,We see two women, greeting one another in front of the SAK Boutique, and our dialogue tells us that the woman at right lives in an apartment above the shop. And even though she’s smiling, I get the imPRESSion from what she’s saying, tongue in CHIC I’m sure, that she may not be all that HAUTE about the idea! And oh, can I empaSIZE with her! I know I could walk in her SHOES, and I have a feeling that we’d be SOLE mates! Anyway…Her saying that the CLOTHES proximity makes shopping there TOO convenient instead of SO convenient let’s us know that the temptation may just be dePLEATing her income….The Boutique is too “CLOTHES” TO HOME! Good one, David! Once again I applaud your CAPEabilities!

SEW…Eye candy. There’s a lot of Mauve in the panel. Both women’s tops, their shoes, the dress in the window, the curtains at the apartments’ windows shown at top, the tiny bow and collar worn by the dog, and the fringe on the shops’ black awning. Someone obviously thinks this color is MAUVEelous!ย The bannister caught my eye, but I’m big on woodworking, so I like banisters! The Boutiques’ logo is gold, and it can be seen on the tenants’ blue shopping bag, atop the awning, and on the door leading into the shop. The dress in the window is a one-shouldered sheath, with a printed scarf that matches the dress’s hemline, draped across the bare shoulder. And through the door of the shop we can see a black spaghetti-strapped halter number with a petal-shaped hemline. And speaking of numbers? The property’s address? 714…with the door to the apartment even showing a B. I’m taking it as a Shout Out to the Babe, who hit 714 HOMErs, and was not only a Fashion plate in his day, but …little known fact, he was also trained as a Tailor! So, the 714 is just TAILOR made…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! …And remember…always shop responsibly…THREAD lightly, but never SKIRT around a good sale…๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  1. Good morning. My choice for hardest word is Clamor. It took me twice as long to get it then the other three words combined. It didn’t register until I made clam an had the other two letters left. The cartoon answer wasn’t a challenge even though the first word was in that dreaded quotation marks. I noticed home for the last word and worked backwards. Haven’t noticed your post yet Angela so in response to yesterday’s remark about how it went from 530 to 830,I see that math is not your forte. “I’m just joking”. If you look back you will see that I stated I was the only winner among us last month. If you check last months blog you will see the amount. But that’s ok Angela, other than that your perfect and I’m sure like me there are others who look forward to you and Mike every single day. No,I’m not wearing high boots. Until later stay cool.

    • LOL! Good Morning, Sunshine! ๐ŸŒž How you do make me smile! Two things…1- You’re 100% correct…Math is definitely not my forte….and 2- do you really think I remember comments from last month? Ok, well maybe I do…but TBT? I still can’t figure out how it went from 530 to 830! ๐Ÿ˜‚ (See #1)….Anyway, the post is up…I had it done at 4:30, but I fell asleep…and then just now I had a problem with the links..I hope they took. As for CLAMOR, I’m with you. I think it may cause a bit of an uproar…And as far as your “boots” go….I KNOW you look forward to me each day…as I do you…Oh..l am wearing mine! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have a great day, Brooklyn…it’s perfect Bocce weather! ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  2. Good morning again. I swear,it’s like I’m back in school again. By the time I finish my thing,there’s Angela with two novels done and Jamu ahead of me. When I started I was all alone. Loved the song choice and in-depth analysis of the store number. From the paper you really don’t see the 714b. You do amaze me with it possibly referring to the Babe. As crazy as it seems I would go with you though. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Ah, Brooklyn…we were once again ships passing in the night! LOL! I just like keeping you on your toes, Paul…(and in those boots I know itโ€™s not always easy)! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thanks for the Shout Out, and Iโ€™m glad you liked the music. My Babe link? Who knows, itโ€™s a long shot. But you know me, Paul…Iโ€™m soooo Brooklyn…I live for the long shots! It is interesting, if nothing else….And Iโ€™m big on going with whatever first comes into my head…and that was it. Babe Ruth, the Tailor! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do remember that when I first heard of it years ago, I thought it was a total goof!…And be honest, Brooklyn ..itโ€™s not all the hard to โ€œgo with meโ€, is it? ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  3. It’s a darn SHAME that the head HONCHO on the project is making such a CLAMOR about some of the PETTY things his men are doing when nobody else in management seems to be concerned. Loved your choice of song, Angela.

    • Good Morning, Chuck. Thank you. It’s a pretty song. You know for some reason though, it makes me feel sad. And I’m trying to think if I’m relating it to something, or someone. But I just can’t put my finger on it…Anyway, you definitely put your mark on our words. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Very nice take. And it has a ring of truth to it besides…too many projects today are done so half-a–ed, and no one seems to care. Shoddy workmanship. Ask Paul. The city did some work at the Bocce Court he plays on in Brooklyn, and it’s a disaster. All that money….down the drain. Literally…When it rains? Water, water…everywhere! There just seems to be such a lack of taking pride in things today…Anywayyyyy…LOL! Don’t get me started! …And isn’t it hard to say HONCHO without thinking head needs to proceed it? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  4. I think Karen Carpenter had one of the most beautiful voices ever. To die needlessly at age 32 with her whole life ahead of her is to me one of the biggest tragedies in music history.

  5. Clothes was a given for the first word in quotes without the clamor solution to that anagram.Quickly followed by the overall clothes to home solution.

    • Good Afternoon, Professor…CLAMOR hit you too? It’s definitely a masterful anagram. If I get a moment, I’m going to go back and see how it appeared last time out, and check whether or not it was a stumper that day also. Hope you’re having a wonderful day, Prof! ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  6. Hi all – I got HONCHO by assuming the CH must go together, and then the extra Hโ€™s and Oโ€™s showed it. The last word took several tries until I just randomly tried CAMLOR and saw CLAMOR. Then saw CLOTHES while writing down the answer letters.

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Never heard about the Babe being a tailor, Angela; very interesting!
    I watched some Giantsโ€™ exclusive YouTube BASEBALL last night, but it was not TAILORED to be an easy setup!
    ๐ŸŽตโ€Prior to this lifetime, I surely was a tailor
    I own the tailor’s face and hands.
    I am the tailor’s face and handsโ€๐ŸŽต (โ€œFakinโ€™ Itโ€, Simon and Garfunkle).

    My first thought on seeing the store address though, given the day of the week, was that Joe FRIDAY of Badge 714 lived there, awaiting his assignment to the next DRAGNET.

    โ€œThe storeโ€™s HONCHO caused a huge CLAMOR when his attempt to SHAME the clerk about stealing from the PETTY cash turned out to be untrueโ€.

    • Hey Steve. Nice sentence…๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I really like the PETTY cash angle…My info on the Babe? Stick with me, Kid…You know I got all kind of stuff stuck up there in the abyss! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope you’re enjoying your day! ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  7. CLAMOR also gave me trouble, but guessing clothes as the first answer word enabled me to back in. It’s good to be reminded of the song, Angela, though sad as noted. I liked your take on 714 and info about Babe Ruth, Angela, though I think it’s probably a long shot.
    Wishing everyone a great weekend.

    • Hi Caroline. Yes, CLAMOR’s numbers are climbing..As I told the Professor, I’m going to see if I get time to do a little research on it. The Babe? Who knows? The guys are baseball fans. But I do know that it’s not very common knowledge about the Babe being proficient in tailoring. I just had that light go off early this morning, and it amused me….I love the obscure…and yes, again…Those long shots are right up my alley! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope your having a great day, Caroline! Enjoy! ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  8. Ok…FYI: I did a quick search. I went back to 2011, and CLAMOR did cause a bit of a pause or two on the 5-6 other times that I found it in game play, but it wasnโ€™t a tie-breaker by any means. I think itโ€™s just the anagram that David came up with today. Itโ€™s an exceptionally good one…And except for the 2011 one, where he used ALROCM, Iโ€™d say todayโ€™s scramble is right up there on the difficulty scale.๐Ÿ˜‚
