Good Morning, Everyone!        📆  IT’S A DATE! 📆

🎶 I love, I love, I love my CALENDAR Girl……Yeah, sweet CALENDAR Girl…I love, I love, I love my CALENDAR Girl…Each and every day of the year. January…You start the year off fine…FEBRUARY .You’re my little VALENTINE …Yeah, yeah, my heart’s in a whirl…I love, I love, I love my little CALENDAR Girl…Every day (every day), every day (every day) of the year.🎶.. “Calendar Girl” – Neil Sedaka  1959

📆 It seems it’s getting RARER to see marriages that last,
To some if things aren’t perfect, they’re just out of there and fast…
A little thing that’s PETTY…and there’s no one wants to budge
It festers and the next thing…one of them is off to TRUDGE
It’s easy with the OUTAGE, instead of trying to,
Work to keep a relationship together and true blue
But what we’re seeing here today, it carries all the weight…
To grow old and to be in love…and still be UP-TO-DATE! 📆

Get it? “Up to date”? He asks her if she’d like to go out to dinner? If she’s “UP” to date?…Now how cute is that? …I love it! And who wouldn’t be up to date today? It’s Valentine’s Day! But then again…maybe not everyone is…up to dating. That’s what might make today a little rough for some. Turn on the TV…it’s there. Pick up a paper…it’s there. Walk into a store…it’s definitely there… All the hype, it’s hard to get away from it. But have you noticed what seems to be a bit viral this year? Galentine’s Day…and Palentine’s Day? I think that’s so cool…Today doesn’t have to be just about the Romance. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! But who says you can’t be happy to spend the day with friends?…Well, you can. Love is Love. And the way the world is today…we could all use a little more of it. So, here’s 🥂 to love…And Happy ❤️Valentine’s Day to each and every one of us!

Ok…now that we’ve had that little heart-to-heart...let’s get down to the heart of the matter and do what we usually do here…Share our love of the Jumble…Today we’re seeing a new word with RARER…(which sure anagrams well), two true repeats…TEYPT, and GUATOE, and trudging up the rear…TRUDGE. And I’m curious to see if Rarer ends up our stumper today. It’s an odd looking little word, isn’t it? Somehow it doesn’t even look right when spelt correctly! Rarer…Well, I’m rarer to go…and get to our cartoon…

Today I’m guessing we may be in a retirement community…maybe in Florida, maybe not, but we do have palm trees. We’re with an older couple, who seem vaguely familiar to the Jumble cartoons, but I can’t put my finger on it. We’ve seen both David and Jeff’s parents featured in the past, and it doesn’t look like them…so IDK. I did pull up a puzzle from last February 1st,which featured two men trying to arrange a time to meet for bowling, and one of the men, Bob, could be our guy here today. And I wish I could show you his picture, which I’m sitting here looking at, but I’ll be honest with you…I forgot how to convert it into a link! I just did it last Saturday too, with the little girls T-shirt, but God forbid I wrote down how I did it…And I’m still playing around with it, because I’d like to get your opinions on whether or not it could be Bob…Anyway…we see our guy, tearing yesterday’s page from his calendar to reveal TODAY’s DATE, which is Valentine’s Day and he’s asking his wife, his Valentine, if she realizes it, and would she like to go to dinner. Yes, of course she does, she answers…she’s holding a box of candy! (You know the old saying…’Love at first bite’)…And yes, of course she would…And…since we already did this…I’ll just cut to the chase…He tore the page off to be….UP-TO-DATE!

Eye Candy? The calendar page for today is showing a large heart…with the words, Feb 14 and Valentine’s Day. The candy heart is a very sweet touch…And Bob (?) has the signature “J” logo on his polo shirt. But I think what makes today’s cartoon so special are the beautiful smiles on our couple…Sigh…Isn’t love grand? So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And may you all feel the Love!❤️🙋🏻‍♀️

  1. 💡 It was becoming RARER and rarer to go a day without a power OUTAGE, and he hated to be PETTY, but he was sick and tired of the daily TRUDGE down to the basement to trip the circuit breaker…his landlord really needed to get this system UP TO DATE…💡

    🐦 He made the TRUDGE another day, but wondered if it mattered,
    He’d get there and he’d find himself exhausted, feeling battered…
    His energy kept waning, like his strength an OUTAGE took,
    And all to see if birds had hatched within that little nook…
    It just seemed all so PETTY, that it was only him
    Who had to make the daily trek…his patience wearing thin…
    So what if this bird’s RARER than the ones they usually saw?
    This whole things getting old to him…it’s nothing but a bore…
    But just his luck he worries that one day he’ll get there late…
    Missing the hatch, failing to keep ornithology UP TO DATE! 🐦

  2. Good morning. Happy Valentine’s Day. I do think the boys gave us our gift with an easy one today. I went to the cartoon only because in the letters for Outage I saw an F instead of E The cartoon answer was an instant solve which led me to check the letters again, and I saw it was in fact an E. The print was a little smeared. Angela you scored a goal with your song choice. Perfect fit. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn and Happy ❤️ V-Day to you too! And I agree, an easy breezy. The song? Tks…but how funny is that video? Could it be any campier? It definitely gave me a laugh! Have a great day, Paul! Enjoy! 📆🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Paul. I keep forgetting…I mean to ask you about Marie. I hope she’s well, and tell her I wish her a very Happy Valentine’s Day. 💕🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Hi Angela. Marie is doing well. She doesn’t get the paper everyday now and hates to go on the computer all the time so we talk a lot less now. Plus they are late sleepers. She gets the Sunday paper but they have been back and forth to PA. She might post since you asked about her. Take care.

        • Thanks Paul. I’m glad to hear she’s well. If she doesn’t look in, please let her know I asked for her. 🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Rarer came quickly,but not so for outage,which I worked backwards to from the up to date cartoon solution.Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you.

    • Good Morning, Professor. Thank you, and Happy ❤️V-Day. to you also. And it looks like Outage is leading the pack…Have a great day! Enjoy! 📆🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Outage has stumped me in the past by not today. All in all it was an easy puzzle. Happy Valentine’s Day to All! ❤️

    • Good Morning, Betty. Easy, yes…a little gift. Hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! Enjoy! ❤️🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Hi all – Used the double letter trick for PETTY and saw the OUT in OUTAGE. RARER actually took the longest, but just separating the R’s showed it, and the answer was easy — although I thought the pun was just that the calendar had “dates” in it, and missed that he was also proposing a date, so thanks for pointing that out Angela! Nice appropriate song too.

    The man seems surprised, so does that mean the woman had already bought the box of chocolates and is teasing him by saying “Yes, I knew that” like “Look, Duh!”? Her smile shows she’s not annoyed; maybe she’s gotten used to it.

    Have a great day, everyone.!

    • Hey Steve…I’m figuring she bought the candy for him…Notice how she’s pointing to it? They’re just the sweetest couple! …And thanks for the shout outs…Have a great❤️ V-Day! Enjoy! 📆🙋🏻‍♀️
