Good Morning, Everyone!           🚀 YOU MUSK BELIEVE 🚀

🎶 MARS ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids…In fact it’s cold as hell…And there’s no one there to raise them if you did…And all this SCIENCE I don’t understand…It’s just my job five days a week…A ROCKET MAN, A ROCKET MAN…And I think it’s gonna be a long long time ‘till touch down brings me round again to find I’m not the man they think I am at home…Oh no no no I’m a ROCKET MAN…ROCKET MAN burning out his fuse up here alone…🎶 “Rocket Man” – Sir Elton John  1972 

🚀 The man in our cartoon today, one of such SUPERB talent
With FORMAL training in his wake…determination valiant…
I’m sure his name must ring a bell, you’ve heard of him some place…
He’s Elon Musk, whose reputation no one should DEFACE
His Falcon 1 successful, in two thousand and eight…
The FOURTH attempt the charm for him…the smiles of the Fates.
His quest for Mars his driving force…he longs to make the journey…
But just the thought of doing it?…Please put me on a GURNEY! 
There’s not enough aged COGNAC, to make me see that light,
More power to those interested…for me, hardly a slight
But Musk’s still on his mission, ever hoping exultantly…
As he’s been since the first day that he LAUNCHED A COMPANY 🚀

December 1st! Woo-hoo! First day of a brand new month! But it’s not bringing us any new words this morning. Just as yesterday, we find ourselves with two repeat anagrams…GURNEY  (08/13/2017)  and  DEFACE  (07/25/16), while all six of our words have been seen a few times throughout the years. And they’ve all last appeared quite recently…late 2018 into 2019, with the most recent being FOURTH, on 05/11. The stumper today? I think we have to go with COGNAC. Masterfully anagrammed, it drove 4 of the Early Birds to drink this morning…and cannon was mentioned more than once…Ok..The show MUSK go on..so let’s get to our cartoon…

Today’s guest speaker is none other than Elon Musk, who coincidentally was just in the news this past week, with the unveiling of his  Cybertruckbut today we find ourselves in 2002. Elon’s holding a press conference, announcing the Launch of his new Company, SpaceX…Oh..look what I just did there…Elon LAUNCHED A COMPANY! Well that was easy enough…and it saved a lot of space too!

Eye candy? Again today, there’s no tiny details to search for on the final frontier...Elon’s dressed very casually, as he often is…wearing a black shirt, as he tends to favor. The backdrop is showing his Falcon 1 Spacecraftas he tells the reporters, with their cell phones at the ready, of his dream to colonize MARS. And there’s stars shining brightly in the darkened sky…matching the stars showing in the eyes of those present. Impressed, to say the least…So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a great day, Everyone. And let’s hope it all comes to fruition for Mr Musk..without any major problems or scandals…Can you imagine if he were to get caught up in some sort of imbroglio? “Elon-gate” would really be a drawn out affair…🚀🙋🏻‍♀️

  1. 🍷Enjoying a SUPERB, aged COGNAC before he left for the FORMAL affair, he checked his image for the FOURTH time tonight, making sure nothing could DEFACE his appearance…and shuddered remembering the last dinner, where he LAUNCHED A COMPANY, fainted from anxiety, and left the soirée on a GURNEY…🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🏫 The sight of his new building, where graffiti did DEFACE,
    Disheartened him so deeply…why did they choose his place?
    The brickwork came out so SUPERB, he was so proud of it…
    And now he stands and all he thinks is that it looks like —-
    He needed that FOURTH camera, making it FORMAL and safe,
    So even if this did occur, at least he’d have a face…
    His anger growing deeper, he’d wished that he could find
    Who perpetrated this on him, a GURNEY comes to mind…
    Right now he needs to calm his nerves…a COGNAC…maybe three?
    He hates being upset the night he LAUNCHED A COMPANY 🏫🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Hi all – I got tripped up on words we’ve seen before – saw FACADE before DEFACE, GURNEY took a few tries after seeing URGENCY and a hair-coloring product, UNGREY, and then hardest of all was COGNAC until randomly trying COG at the beginning. Thought STARTED for the first answer word, but then LAUNCHED was pretty easy to figure out.

    Made me laugh with Elon-gate, Angela, good one!
    Have a great Sunday, everyone!

    “They warned the vintner that it would DEFACE his image and sure enough, the FOURTH distillation produced a SUPERB COGNAC for the FORMAL dinner, but was so strong it caused one guest to be carried out on a GURNEY.”

    One other note – I did indeed watch the Sharks game and then switched to Cal/UCLA which hadn’t started yet. I discovered that someone at Comcast is way overqualified for his caption-writing job when I read the onscreen description of the game:
    “California at UCLA. The Golden Bears aim to be the best ursine when they play the Bruins.” 😂

    • Thanks for the Shout Out, Steve…and your sentence in turn, made me laugh too. 👍🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I almost gave up on getting DEFACE in there!
        Getting ready to watch the 49er’s, see you later.

        • You’re not alone. 2 Lou’s swore it was Facade…It’s miserable here..Heavy, teeming rain…and snow’s coming. It’s raw outside. I cooked up a storm..no pun intended…and we’re gonna do the same…Enjoy! Talk to you later.🏈🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Hi Everyone –
    Again, I found the words challenging, but I remembered some, like gurney, from past struggles.
    The breadth of Musk’s endeavors amazes me, and I appreciate what he has done for electric cars.
    Angela and Steve, your sentences making all the words fit, made me smile.

    • Hi Caroline. I agree, Musk is truly a visionary. And thanks for your kind words. Todays’ words were fun to play with. Hoping you don’t get snowed in🤞🏻..Be safe, and have a great day. 🚀🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Thanks, Angela. We don’t expect to get snowed in but ice has been coming down, so I haven’t ventured out yet. Wishing you and everyone a great day, too.

        • YW, Caroline. We haven’t seen any snow yet either, but it’s pouring buckets…and it “feels” like snow. I did hear on the news tho that the upstate regions are supposed to get significant snowfall. I went out to Church early, before it started, and just got in from a quick run to the store ..and that’s it for me. I’m already making the Nutella hot chocolate…so you KNOW I’m done for! 😉Stay safe…and indoors, and just enjoy the sounds of the storm! 💨💦🙋🏻‍♀️
