Good Morning, Everyone! Β  Β  Β  Β πŸ‘—TOO CLOTHES FOR COMFORT?πŸ‘—

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

πŸ‘—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 πŸ‘—

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 theΒ 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!Β 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…πŸ‘—πŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. It’s a PETTY, dirty, rotten SHAME how restaurants will always catch some blame. The food’s too hot, the food’s too cold, the greens too green, the greens too old. A restaurant HONCHO called over his maitre d’ see those drunks over at table three? They all ordered rack of lamb, now all CLAMOR where’s my clam”. I stifled a laugh and turned about, in time to see them ushered out. I laughed and figured what I most want: a silent meal in a restaurant. So, that’s my take, I’ll be back when I’m awake.

    • Good Morning. Jamu. You definitely got me to laugh! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Well done! …imaginative..and funny! ….And here’s my take…πŸ™‹πŸ»

      Β° After the PETTY argument brought SHAME to the organization, one by one they all started to CLAMOR for the attention of the head HONCHO in an effort to make amends…but he avoided them all by staying CLOSE TO HOME.

      Β° They all called him their HONCHO, they loved his savoir faire,
      They felt no SHAME in praising him…the name they did endear.
      He never once was PETTY, he didn’t look to pry,
      His personality was one of…let bygones go on by…
      Amidst the constant distractions and all the crazy CLAMOR,
      He kept a level head and made sure to avoid the drama.
      And so like the old saying that all roads lead to Rome…
      He won the hearts of everyone…and they felt CLOSE TO HOME


  2. 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! 🌞 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! πŸ˜‚ (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! πŸ˜‰ Have a great day, Brooklyn…it’s perfect Bocce weather! πŸ‘—πŸ™‹πŸ»


      • Jamu…Maybe I was too vague. I meant for you to go back and read your post, I made the correction for you…That’s what I meant by saying you owed me…πŸ˜‰πŸ™‹πŸ»


  3. 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 it’s not always easy)! πŸ˜‚ Thanks for the Shout Out, and I’m glad you liked the music. My Babe link? Who knows, it’s a long shot. But you know me, Paul…I’m soooo Brooklyn…I live for the long shots! It is interesting, if nothing else….And I’m big on going with whatever first comes into my head…and that was it. Babe Ruth, the Tailor! πŸ˜‰ I do remember that when I first heard of it years ago, I thought it was a total goof!…And be honest, Brooklyn ..it’s not all the hard to β€œgo with me”, is it? πŸ˜‰πŸ™‹πŸ»


  4. Good morning Angela, Paul; my hardest word was also clamor. So hard it was left off my post, it should have read ” they all clamor where’s my clam”. I WAS asleep wasn’t I? Forgot the solve!

  5. 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. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» 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? πŸ™‹πŸ»


  6. 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.

    • 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! πŸ‘—πŸ™‹πŸ»


  7. Hi all – I got HONCHO by assuming the CH must go together, and then the extra H’s and O’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 Giants’ exclusive YouTube BASEBALL last night, but it was not TAILORED to be an easy setup!
    πŸŽ΅β€Prior to this lifetime, I surely was a tailor
    I own the tailor’s face and hands.
    I am the tailor’s face and handsβ€πŸŽ΅ (β€œFakin’ It”, 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.

    β€œThe store’s HONCHO caused a huge CLAMOR when his attempt to SHAME the clerk about stealing from the PETTY cash turned out to be untrue”.

    • Hey Steve. Nice sentence…πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» 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! πŸ˜‰ Hope you’re enjoying your day! πŸ‘—πŸ™‹πŸ»


  8. 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! πŸ˜‰ Hope your having a great day, Caroline! Enjoy! πŸ‘—πŸ™‹πŸ»


  9. NOW I got it! The THIRD time around; it was not only corrected but the anagram words were emphasized. And yes, I got my coffee, but, I had to grind beans & then sweep all I spilled. No, I don’t drink or smoke, just old. So yes, thank you and yes, I owe you. Enjoy your cool Friday. My friends tell me I use too many commas, etc. I tell them I’m just a comma-kazi, who’ll soon be conna-tose. Again, Thank you.

    • LOL! YW…You are a trip, aren’t you? As I said, I might have been a little too vague. And you know the the owing me was just a joke…I do this all simply from the kindness of my heart…πŸ˜‰ No, really, I do….And just a thought if I may…Maybe you should ease up with the coffee…you know COMMA down just a tad??? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Have a good one, Jamu. Take deep breaths! πŸ‘—πŸ™‹πŸ»


  10. 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 wasn’t a tie-breaker by any means. I think it’s just the anagram that David came up with today. It’s an exceptionally good one…And except for the 2011 one, where he used ALROCM, I’d say today’s scramble is right up there on the difficulty scale.πŸ˜‚


  11. Good Afternoon! I got the solve! Now, teatime?
    Day half, 3/4 gone? Wow! Thanks Angela, for the courtesies from the heart of your kindness (I can’t resist, can’t resist, can’t resist ad infitum) Tomorrow then?
