Good Morning, KIDS! 🐐🙋🏻♀️
🎶 Big wheel keep on turnin…Proud Mary keep on burnin’…TROLLIN’, TROLLIN’…TROLLIN’ on the River…🎶 “Proud Mary” – Miss Tina Turner (circa 1999…originally recorded 1970)
🧟♂️ This troll has seen his GLORY days…no longer does he scare, Away the little Billy-Goats that we are seeing here… Before they may have felt that to RELENT their only choice, But today we can see that they have definitely found a voice… Our troll’s become INEPT as far calling all the shots, He’s standing at the BORDER of becoming a have-not… There’ll be no money paid to him… not even a slight smidge… The Grump sees now there’s getting ‘round his once fabled “TROLL” BRIDGE 🧟♂️
Before a Troll came to be known as an offensive, provocative person who dwells on-line, it was just an ugly mythical creature of folklore, who dwelled in caves under bridges…And I don’t think we’ve seen that many trolls in the Jumble over the years…But there was one featured in the puzzle of 11/04/17, which dealt with grazing goats, and the days solution was “Hill-Billies”. Unlike today, the tiny troll drawn that day, peeking out from under the bridge, was as eye candy alone, since he really had nothing to do with the puzzle per se…But that image immediately came to mind as soon as I saw today’s puzzle. As did the old folk tale, “Three Billy Goats Gruff”. Our troll may not be looking for goat meat today…but he is looking to “fleece“ them just the same! Nope, these goats don’t need that old “TROLL” BRIDGE...Two gold pieces each? That’s just GRAZY! It’s an excellent pun, and a cartoon that definitely draws you in! Have a great day, Everyone! …And as mentioned before…I wasn’t KIDding when I said…Don’t let anyone get your goat…🐐🙋🏻♀️
Glad to have the help so early in the day. Thank you
🎨 He felt embarrassingly INEPT when he realized that every BORDER of the canvas was blurred, and he’d have to RELENT on the finished project… without bringing the GLORY he’d hoped to the painting of the old TOLL BRIDGE. 🎨
🙏🏻 They gathered at the BORDER, thinking GLORY, honor bound,
They wanted to pay homage to the grotto they had found.
At first they felt INEPT and thought the whole thing really odd,
But more and more it looked to them like Christ upon the sod
They hated to RELENT on this, so they met near the ridge…
Knowing they might be ridiculed for this at the TOLL BRIDGE…🙏🏻🙋🏻♀️
Good morning. Another easy breezy jumble on both ends. Once you put down the letters bridge could be seen right away which left troll for a clever answer. No so called quotation trepidation for me today. Loved you song choice and interesting side bits Angela. Will view more intent when I get back. Until tomorrow stay well.
Tks, Paul. You always give me a smile…And with today being Giving Tuesday…it fits so well. Spread the love today…spread the giving…👨👩👦👦🙋🏻♀️
Hi Everyone –
Relent gave me major trouble, and I needed to back in. Bridge and troll came easily. Cute drawing and answer.
Good Morning, Caroline. And it’s Relent that’s leading in the poll. And yes, another cute clever gift today! Have a good one! 🐐🙋🏻♀️
Yay! 2 days in a row…
“Top a’ the world Ma!!!”
Good Morning, Mike…It is a good feeling! Have a great day! 🐐🙋🏻♀️
Easy one again today – nice! Happy Tuesday all.
Good Morning, Betty. Yes, it is…and a fun one! Happy Tuesday to you too! 🐐🙋🏻♀️
Hi all – Another easy one today for both the words and answer, but the cartoon is striking! The first thing that any Monty Python fan will think of is the bridge troll scene in “The Holy Grail”, and probably the last thing that anyone would think of is that they should have added two letters to the last word to come up with the Beatle song “DR ROBERT”, which I just happened to be thinking about on Sunday.
Betty, that looks like the bridge in the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park, right?
Have a great day, everyone, weather permitting. We have a bit of sun today (I said hello for you Mike) before more storms in a day or two.
“The landlord decided to RELENT on collecting this month’s rent from his INEPT BOARDER when he produced an old photograph from his GLORY days in WWII”.
LOL! Inept BOARDER? Hmm..Are you KIDding?😉🤷🏻♀️ Have a good one, Steve! Enjoy the sun! 🐐🙋🏻♀️
It seems a year since it’s been clear. Sun, sun, sun, here it comes! ☀️😂🙋🏻♂️
🎵”There goes the sun, do do do do..”🎵 It was really nice while it lasted! 😂
Now 🎵”The sky is grey and white and, cloudy..”🎵 🙋🏻♂️
…At least it’s not snowing! 😉❄️🙋🏻♀️
