Good Morning, Everyone!    👶🏻✈️  SHAKE, RATTLE AND…FOLD! ✈️👶🏻

🎶 CRY, CRY, Baby... CRY Baby, CRY Baby…Welcome back home. Well I can always lose…Don’t you know nobody can love you the way that I do. Take the pain and the heartache too…Ah Honey, you know that I’ll be around …When you need to CRY…CRY Baby, CRY Baby…Welcome back home…🎶 “Cry, Baby” – Garnet Mimms & The Enchanters 1963

✈️👶🏻 If you’re a traveler you know, that it’s far from a breeze,
The days of comfort all but gone..unless you pay the fees…
Economy all but amounts to flights of gritting teeth,
Leg room alone don’t COVER ‘nuff for you to see your feet…
While nothing’s there to UNIFY the people that are stuck,
You feel just like a FERRET…and you probably curse your luck…
If on a flight with babies, even though you hold them dear,
A crying one while on a flight…not what you want to hear…
You sit picturing an ATRIUM…wide open and well lit,
And wish you were in business class…’cause this is just the pits
You wish you had the money to have comfort where you sit…
‘Cause back here in economy?…It’s a FAR CRY FROM IT 👶🏻✈️

Today, just as yesterday, the Jumble hasn’t given birth to any new words, while at the same time, offering us all new anagrams. And while ATRIUM, being not the most common of words, caused a little rattle or two, it was FERRET that drove two of the Early Birds stork raving mad…they just couldn’t see it, no matter how many times they changed the order of the letters…

Ok, so…No matter how you try to ignore it, a crying baby on a plane is definitely the elephant in the womb…People try to make believe they’re not hearing it, but let’s face it, Folks, if you’re in that C-section…you know Coach, you may try to bottle up your feelings…but sooner or later, somebody most likely is going to end up delivering a nasty remark. And it’s sad, too, because the last thing our poor parents want is to have their babies, you know, acting like babies. One can only imagine how both they and their kids must feel. Us, we feel our ears popping, we chew gum. We feel anxious, we pop a pill…But these poor little ones? How do they pacify themselves? As I said, it’s sad. And the parents? Standing there trying everything they can think of to quiet these crying, drooling kids? Harried and looking desperate and fearful that they may not succeed? All the while catching the nasty glances being delivered their way? I can only imagine. Totally laborious…Let’s face it Folks, I’m sure they’d love nothing more than to colic a day…But as we can see, the crying continues…And our main characters up front, in the B-Section, the couple, are all smiles…and along with the two men sitting behind them, are seen reading, sleeping, surfing the net and able to have a quiet conversation since they broke that sound barrier…. Just grateful that they were able to get a leg up on things and not have to be back there amongst the crud, fret and fears…Because Business Class was…a FAR CRY FROM IT…

Eye candy? First off, have you noticed how many characters are in our puzzle today?  Seven at back and four at front? Eleven people? That’s definitely a lot, right? It’s a regular population explosion! I can’t remember the last time we’ve seen so many people in one cartoon…it’s quite a stretchy…And if I had to choose, I’m going with the guy in Coach, seated right in front of all the turbulence. From the annoyed look on his face, I think he’s going to be the one to say something nasty to our poor parents…Yeah, he definitely looks like he’s got a bad altitude…So, There you have it, Folks…Done! And remember…We’re all pretty much in the same boat (no pun intended), when we fly…And being courteous and considerate to one another can definitely go a long way to making an unpleasant situation a little easier to take…So, let’s try being friendly…Say Hi to everyone…Well…except for Jack…Trust me, that’ll never fly… 👶🏻✈️🙋🏻‍♀️

  1. 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦 Standing in the ATRIUM, and agreeing that none of them were perfect…a FAR CRY FROM IT, they realized that they needed to UNIFY their forces, and not try to COVER up any of the committees’ illicit deeds that they were able to FERRET out..👨‍👩‍👦‍👦

    🦝 A FERRET in the ATRIUM…it definitely caused a stir,
    And UNIFY is what they must…if capture would occur…
    They know they need to COVER, even the slightest crack,
    To make sure that it couldn’t hide, so outside it’d run back…
    Then they got down to business…rolled their sleeves and showed true grit,
    They know it won’t be easy…in fact a FAR CRY FROM IT…🦝

  2. Good morning. My choice for hardest word was Atrium. I almost gave up but kept switching the letters around until that light bulb went off in my head. The cartoon answer also took some time for me to finally get even though I had Cry. But I had it as the first word which threw me off for a while because I thought it was Cry For. Nice job early bird Angela. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Hey Paul. Good Morning. And thanks! With CRY being a given, especially with David using BAWL in his question in lieu of Cry, I could see where you’d think it started with Cry For. I didn’t even think of that, because I didn’t use the letters, since the idiom came to me as soon as I saw the cartoon. But the big hints to FAR were in the dialogue. Her saying she’s glad she’s “up there”, and him specifying that the sound “doesn’t travel ALL that way”. Jeff definitely laid the GROUND work for “distance”, both with his wording and the cartoon drawn to show the couple looking so much larger than the background. It was very cleverly done, from both sides of the fence. And 👏🏻👏🏻 kudos for sticking with it…and getting the SAFE LANDING! 😉 Have a great day, Brooklyn…Let’s hope the winds die down so things stop FLYING around out there! ✈️🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Ferret can also be spelled:
    Freter, to worry a lot.
    Luckily for me the correct letters appeared in the circles.

    • Hi Fritz. Good Morning. Fretter would be spelt with 2 T’s, https://tinyurl.com/rbs7ys8, which we weren’t given…we have the 2 R’s instead…But it’s funny that you still had the 3 letters needed for the solve! Wishing you a great day, Fritz, and thanks for commenting! ✈️🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Easy one today for a Friday. Was able to get all the words, though atrium has tripped me up in the past. Cartoon answer was a given. Crying babies or not, I think airplane travel is absolutely uncivilized these days. Hope all of you have a good day.

  5. I just thought of what would have been an ideal title for today…better than the take on Elvis that I went with, ”Shake, Rattle and Fold” (I was thinking rocking the Babies, distracting them with Rattles, and Fold..as in giving up). But I think “FAR FROM THE MADDING LOUD” would have been so much better! I could’ve had a 🤦🏻‍♀️ V-8! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Hi all – “Y” at the end gave UNIFY quickly, and I always try “IUM” at the end expecting an element, but this time it gave the correct word anyway. Seeing “CRY” showed the answer.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    “A strong COVER was required to UNIFY the FERRET exhibit with the other animals for Jim Fowler’s wildlife demonstration in the hotel’s ATRIUM.”

    “C-section” gave me a laugh Angela, along with “bad altitude”. And of course my sick mind was amused that the statement “***PLEASE NOTE: ALL WORDING HIGHLIGHTED IN BLUE LEADS TO A LINK*** “ is self-contradictory (it’s highlighted in blue, but it’s not a link. I love things like that! 😂)

    🎵”At twelve o’clock a meeting round the table
    For a seance in the dark
    With voices out of nowhere
    Put on specially by the children for a lark
    Cry baby cry
    Make your mother sigh
    She’s old enough to know better
    So cry baby cry”🎵 (John Lennon on The White Album)

    • Hey, Steve, Tks…And I did wonder if the statement would FLY as is..but I couldn’t think of a way to get around it without attaching a disclaimer…and I didn’t want the extra baggage! 😉 Plus I think the ***…*** takes it out of the equation …Nice take off Jim Fowler! Have a great day, Steve!
