Good Morning, Everyone! 🌊 NO, NOT “THAT” YOU TUBE…🌊
🎶 Day after day I’m more confused…Yet I look for the light in the pouring rain…You know that’s a game that I hate to lose…I’m feelin’ the strain, ain’t it a shame…Oh, give me the beat boys, and free my soul, I want to get lost in your rock and roll and DRIFT AWAY…Oh, give me the beat boys, and free my soul…I want to get lost in your rock and roll and DRIFT AWAY…🎶 “Drift Away” Dobie Gray 1973
🌊It looks like we are still in Maine, the season isn’t off,
But now we see our characters decided clothes to doff…
And drifting down a stream we see three DELUXE inner tubes,
But one guy in the group ended up acting quite the rube…
Although the water’s calm right now, what if it were to FLOOD?
It sometimes happens quickly…and then where will be their Bud?
They seem a little laissez-faire about the sleepers’ fate,
He’s out in FRONT and moving fast…to me at any rate…
This could go down in INFAMY, I think they’re too blasé,
Suppose he lands in dire straits…and then what will they say?
I’d wake him up before it ends up their words they will scoff,
Because this guy has definitely doubly DRIFTED OFF!🌊
Another day of Old Favorites, with FLOOD DRIFTING as far back as July 2009, and INFAMY clocking in as our most recently seen entry. And back in 2009, Flood’s anagram appeared exactly as it does today. Aside from that, it all went swimmingly…And so on to our cartoon…
For some reason, I feel as if we’re still in Maine. The woman looks pretty much the same as the one we saw yesterday, although our girl today has straight hair and yesterday’s had a curly do….But then again, it’s hair…and they are around moisture…so, let’s face it, that line of thinking doesn’t really hold any water.. And the guy in the back, our drifter? He could very well be yesterday’s MAINE character, don’t you think? But this new guy up front? Here’s my take…He’s the Father-in-law…and I think he looks just a little too comfortable with his son-in-law possibly going up the river. Catch my DRIFT? Inflated ego if you ask me. He seems just a little too shallow. Anyway…Three characters, three inner tubes, and a leisurely morning spent on that Penobscot River I mentioned yesterday. And the guy we see going with the flow? The one who’s really TIREd? Currently…I’m a little worried about him. I mean what’s his wife going to do? Wave him in? I just can’t fathom what they’re thinking…because he’s definitely DRIFTED OFF. Literally…and in more ways than one…Kudos, David. A double take!
Eye candy? The entire panel is awash with the blue of the river. There’s an expanse of black silhouetted pine trees surrounding it all, with a small patch of green showing off to the left. Red cups are in the hands of our two who are aWAKE, and we can see a little underarm patch and some leg stubble on dear old Dad. Nice details..but that’s really neither HAIR nor there. And speaking of WAKE, we can see the circulation of the waters’ movement from the errant tube as it drifts away...But what you need to do though, is look real closely, at the side of the tube at front… There’s a tiny yellow fish, and right next to it a lost yellow fishing lure…with what looks like two sharp hooks...Hmm. Karma? Wouldn’t that be ironic? Maybe our guy should start doing some Rubber Soul searching, huh? Hey, you never know! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And keep in mind…WATERver you do when you’re out dealing with Mother Nature, it’s always wise to inVEST in some protection. You just never know how TIREd you may become…🌊🙋🏻
