Good Morning, Everyone ➡️ WHAT’S MY LINE? ⬅️
🎶 I keep a close watch on this heart of mine…I keep my eyes wide open all the time, I keep the ends out for the tie that binds…Because you’re mine, I WALK THE LINE 🎶... “I Walk The Line” – Mr Johnny Cash 1956
➡️ You really have to wonder by looking at this guy,
Despite the WARMTH and SUGARY look…you think this job’ll fly?
You wonder did they FORAGE the Want Ads…can we tell?
‘Cause somehow my gut tells me…this won’t go very well…
He’s going to use that Laying Pram, but there can be no shortage,
Of common sense and precision…and I fear there’s an OUTAGE
And though he wears no SANDAL, I’m picturing just how,
He might INFECT his foot real quick…unless he’s to kowtow…
I could be wrong, and maybe I shouldn’t speak untoward,
But somehow I fear this won’t go exactly that STRAIGHT FORWARD…⬅️
Sunday Morning…and how I love the ROUTE 66 we take today. Six words, six letters each…A Jumbler’s delight! And delight us David has done…For when I let my fingers do the WALKING through the Jumble Pages this morning, I found five of our six words to be nicely LAYED out for us…So, here’s today’s LINE UP…While each of our five words can be TRACED back a few years, they were all also featured in 2018 puzzles. SANDAL, FITTING a double bill, as the oldest and the newest, was seen on 04/03/12, and made its most recent appearance on 10/02/18, while FORAGE showed up last year on 05/27. And along with new anagrams, today we find one more new addition to the Jumble Database…SUGARY is making its debut. And on that sweet note…Let’s WALK over to our cartoon…
So, ROUTE 66. Why not, it’s as good a ROAD as any other, and it is one of the original highways in the U.S. Highway System… We see two Road Surface workers, STEERSMEN, and the one at right, is instructing the trainee at left how to use a LAYING PRAM to paint Road Lines...And from our dialogue, it seems pretty…STRAIGHT FORWARD! What can I say? It was LINED UP for us! I didn’t need to PAINT the picture at all! Nicely done, David. You brought a sMILE to my face!
Eye candy…While the job seems easy enough, you really have to consider what’s going on here. Personally, I’ve never given it much thought before, but I do think this LINE of work DIVIDES those who can from those who just want to earn some money with or without a STEADY job. “Let go every 10 feet”? That’s it? I don’t know…I think I have to lay it on the LINE here…This can really go in the wrong DIRECTION…We see expanses of green, bordering a long STRAIGHT black-tarred Highway. A few bushes are shown off to each side. Our men are dressed alike, in jeans and yellow shirts and caps. The PRAM is red, with a white PAINT canister attached. And on the ground off to the right we can see a carton of additional white canisters. But aSIDE from the way too nonchalant look on our trainees’ face, I have to give it to you STRAIGHT…there’s nothing really catching my eye this morning. So, instead of “visual” candy, I’ll leave you with a little joke to PAVE the way…
🗣 A man gets a job painting lines on the highway. At the end of the first day, his supervisor’s very impressed. “Wow!” he says. “You did eight miles today! That’s great!” The second day, the guy’s production is down to four miles. ‘Still pretty good,’ the supervisor thinks. But on the third day, the guy only does two miles. The supervisor calls him into the office. “What’s going on?” he asks. “The first day you did great with eight miles, then yesterday you were down to four, and today you’ve only managed two. What’s the problem?” The guy rolls his eyes and says “You’re kidding me, right? The carton of canisters keeps getting farther and farther away!”…HA!…How’s that for a LINE? Enough said!!
So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And remember, it’s always best to WALK a STRAIGHT LINE in life…and put your best foot FORWARD…Especially if you ever get pulled over by the police…➡️⬅️🙋🏻
