Good Morning, Everyone! 🦝 POACHIN’ And ENCROACHIN‘ 🦝
🎶 C’mon and hold me …Just like you told me..Then show me what I want to know…Why don’t we STEAL AWAY...Why don’t we STEAL AWAY away…Into the night…know it ain’t right…Into the night babe…🎶 “Steal Away” – Robbie Dupree 1980
🦝 🥚The Raccoons are a wily lot, with fingers so to speak,
They manage to get into things which can lead us to shriek.
This Farmer here is stymied…this will WEIGH upon his mind,
The LONGER that he thinks about and tries so hard to find…
His eggs that have gone missing…although not quite a POUND,
He’s still concerned and really wonders if they can be found…
But till he finds a way to stop these SOCIAL little pests,
He may be doomed to deal each day with this type of unrest.
Destructive and quite cunning…these thieves are just the dregs,
And I feel for our Farmer left to ponder his POACHED EGGS…🥚🦝
With no new words and all new anagrams, we’re seeing entries today that go as FUR back as 2011, while they all also appeared just last year. SOCIAL comes in as our oldest, and also our most oft repeated, with a showing way back on 11/27/11, and 10 more after that, until it last LAID out here on 04/10/18. POUND was last seen on 02/12/18, while LONGER CLUCKS in as of 05/14/18. And it’s WEIGH that takes its’ place as the most recent of all, with its last appearance being 08/04/18. And while none of them were BACON us SCRATCH our heads this morning…The Early Birds agreed that if they had to FIND any one of them the hardest, they’d probably PECK SOCIAL, because it took more than one FRY to UNCOVER. So with that all unSCRAMBLED, let’s see what Jeff’s HATCHED up FUR us today…
Having been down on the FARM quite recently on August 17th…we FIND ourselves back here aHEN today. But instead of a Rooster doing the CROWING this time, today it’s being SERVED up by two POACHERS. Rocky Raccoon and his pal BullWINKle are seen doing what Raccoons tend to do best…STEAL. Already born with that BANDIT’S MASK, I suppose they never really had much a choice, you know, products of their envIRONment and all, but that doesn’t make it any easier to DIGEST. Having just raided the Henhouse, they leave the poor Farmer 🎶Bewitched, Bothered and BePILFERED🎶…And that’s no YOLK…Standing SCRATCHing his head, he can’t MASK his confusion…he just can’t imagine where his EGGS have disappeared to…while all the while Rocky’s sitting under a tree and CROWing that the “Masked Bandits strike again”…. And not only will this prove to be an EGGSpensive loss FUR our Farmer, but let’s face it Folks, it’s downright CRIMINAL! And it’s definitely leaving the poor guy in HOT WATER! So in a nutSHELL? With BullWINKle loving them “RUNNY”? The Raccoons enjoyed their…POACHED EGGS! Good one, David! You CRACKED me up!
Ok, eye candy…A Rooster is shown perched atop the middle henhouse, with three hens on the ground, one on the ramped entranceway at right, and a fifth broody hen visible through the opening of the house on the left. But they’re not what STEALS the spotlight this morning. If you look real closely, the cracked EGG in BullWINKle’s hand? Well the YOLKS on him! Literally! That ‘cup’ RUNneth over!…And a little bit can be seen dripping from his lip, too. Nice little trEAT, Jeff. So, There you have it, YOLKS, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…No, SCRATCH that…Keep your SUNNY SIDE UP, and make it an EGGScellent day instead! 🥚🙋🏻
