  1. Good Morning, Everyone.. 🧏🏻‍♂️ SSHH..I’M TRYING TO GET MY EAR IN GEAR…🧏🏻‍♂️

    🎶If you’ll be my BODYguard…I can be your long lost pal…I can call you Betty…And Betty, when you call me, you can CALL ME AL….Call me AL…🎶 “You Can Call Me Al” – Paul Simon 1986 https://tinyurl.com/d2t963h

    🧏🏻‍♂️ You’ve heard about the “Whisperers” …it could be horse or dog,
    Well here we see the Car’s version…the man knows every clog…
    His ORBIT is all Autos…an “ear” AGILE and tuned,
    But noise must be on SOFTEN…lest his fine senses be ruined…
    He can diagnose your problem, with precision he’ll EXCITE,
    The younger guy he’s training how to spot any car’s plight…
    A rare breed of Mechanic…and he’s blessed, therefore to wit…
    He’s in demand, ‘cause there’s no doubt he’ll GET A FIX ON IT! 🧏🏻‍♂️

    Nothing new as far as our words go today, and it’s only BROTI, which David RAN by us before…way back in 2016. And as for the Early Birds..they didn’t BOLT at anything this morning…The FIX was in!

    Our solution? If the idiom didn’t ring a bell… https://tinyurl.com/y4v7ttnl, then seeing that the Car was in the REPAIR Shop, and having the “F” and the “X” amongst our letters…well, that should have gotten your engine running! … And our Mechanic Extraordinaire definitely runs on all cylinders…His ear’s in gear…and he’s GOT A FIX ON IT! RIVETing, right?…And if you’re lucky enough to know a guy like this?…Just pray that he never reTIRES!

    Eye candy? If you look real closely, the name tag on our CARtisan? It reads “Al”…My song choice? Yep, it all MESHes together. So, There you have it, Folks! Done…And yes, there’s not much IDLE chatter oday…I’m just taking a little BRAKE…Be well, stay safe…you know the DRILL…🧏🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🎪 Watching the AGILE aerialist perform, threw his fans into an ORBIT of a sort, especially the way he’d EXCITE the crowd when he told them all to SOFTEN their voices as he neared the finale…and attempted to GET A FIX ON IT…🎪

    💃🏻🕺🏻His dance moves were quite AGILE, he’d ORBIT ‘round the floor
    The woman vied their turn with him…each night the number more…
    He’d definitely EXCITE them all, though some just missed a turn,
    And he would try SOFTEN the blow…he’d ask them to return…
    This dancing school he opened up? He really needs some grit,
    Since every night’s so busy…He needs GET A FIX ON IT…💃🏻🕺🏻

  3. Good morning. No problem with either the words or cartoon today. Loved your reason for the song choice Angela. I think the acoustics was off because it was hard to enjoy and hear it clearly. Maybe it’s me since I was always told I had selective hearing by my wife. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Thank you…There wasn’t much else in the CARtune…so I just went with Al! 😂And I agree, an easy, breezy puzzle today. But as far as the sound goes, it seems ok on my end…Maybe try adjusting yours? The selective hearing? Doesn’t that apply to all men? 😂 Have a good one, Paul. Be well, and stay safe out there..🧏🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Good Morning, Professor. Yes, it seems like David’s definitely BRAKEing these words down, huh? 😉 And one more clever, easy puzzle to end the week. Be well Prof, and stay safe out there…🧏🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Hi Everyone –
    I have only a vague familiarity with the expression, but it wasn’t hard to get the answer . When I see any E, especially if there are three vowels, I’ll often try the E at the end. Worked today for Agile and Excite.

  6. Good morning. When I got orbit, I thought of space. so, The Astronauts had to be AGILE to fit in the capsule to ORBIT the Earth. To Excite them, they promised to SOFTEN the landing when they GET A FIX ON IT.

  7. Hi all – No trouble with the words. The answer layout seemed to give “Get a xxx on it”, and as I was writing down the letters, it dawned on me that he was trying to FIX the problem, and the X confirmed it.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Angela, I’ve got a story about the inspiration for a Beatles’ song. A guy was trying to get new treads put on his old tires, but the first time he came to pick them up, they weren’t ready. The shop owner promised to have them by the next week, but when the guy came back, they *still* weren’t ready, and he blurted out “This happened once before, when I came to your door, NO RE-PLY.”

    “The Rock star would EXCITE so many fans he had to be extremely AGILE to SOFTEN the crush of all who wanted to invade his ORBIT.”

      • After I posted it, I thought you might say “You already wrote this joke on xx/xx/2018 and it wasn’t any better then!” 😂😂 And I would have to say, “This is where you just go ‘Ok Steve, very nice’ while thinking ‘Uh-oh, it’s starting!’” 😂😂
        I’ll tell you a story about it, though. I had a show at my college radio station (a huge 10-watt behemoth that if we were lucky maybe reached 5 miles off campus) on a Saturday morning (when I figured maybe 10 people might be listening) and I was about to play “No Reply”, and the joke occurred to me. I got about halfway through and happened to glance up to see one of my friends staring at me through the studio’s glass window with an expression like “WTF? Where on Earth is this going?” and I almost lost it right there. 😂
        Ok, now you can tell me that I’ve told *this* story before! 😂 And I’d believe you! 😂
