  1. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you ⏰ UP AND AT ‘EM! ⏰

    🎶 It’s a beautiful MORNIN’…I think I’ll go outside a while…And just smile….Just take in some clean fresh air, boy…Ain’t no sense in stayin’ inside…If the weather’s fine and you got the time….It’s your chance to WAKE UP and plan another brand new day…Either way,…It’s a beautiful MORNIN’🎶…“It’s A Beautiful Morning” – The Young Rascals 1968 https://tinyurl.com/y5e6verf

    ⏰ The TV show called “Mad Men”…which ran for many years,
    Brought Sterling Cooper AGENCY and an Ad mans career
    Into the homes of many Folks, it helped to USHER in,
    The life of Madison Avenue..and what goes on within…
    PLAID-patterned ties, a MEDLEY of the 60’s brought to life,
    We got to see both work and home…and with it all the strife
    A noble business to be sure…but perhaps twas Jon Hamm…
    Reason enough to watch and give it the UP AND “AD” EM! ⏰

    Ok, so USHERing in todays puzzle, seeing SUREH in PRINT, was definitely enough to catch my attention…We’ve seen it anagrammed as such many times over, the most recent being March 6th.. PUZZLE: https://tinyurl.com/y2osn95l POST: https://tinyurl.com/y26ophpd….
    And going back a few years, I found it four times…definitely enough to SELL me…And with our other three words old favorites also, the EARLY Birds just breezed right on through to our cartoon…

    So, with only a pair of eyeglasses and a glass of water on the nightstand, there’s no clues to DRAW any help from…And with the word Advertising in the dialogue, I was a little surprised to see “AD” in the solution…But BUY and BUY, it’s a very clever pun…Our girl, the Ad Exec, is UP early…and excited to get at ‘em.. https://tinyurl.com/y2wpwe43….She’s…UP AND “AD” EM…It SELLS itself!

    So, There you have it Folks, it’s a PRINT! Have a good one…And I’ll leave you with a little Ad Pitch… Always trust a glue salesman. They tend to stick to their word…Be well, Everyone, and stay safe out there….⏰🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🧍🏻‍♀️The Catholic School uniforms were a PLAID MEDLEY of color, and the AGENCY was UP AND AT ‘EM with the design, convinced that they’d do well to USHER in the new school year…🧍🏻‍♀️

    🕴🏻The USHER wasn’t crazy ‘bout the tux the groom picked out,
    The bow tie with the PLAID in it…what was that all about?
    Somehow he felt it didn’t gel…and waiting to be fitted,
    Between it and the MEDLEY playing…his teeth were definitely gritted…
    The AGENCY that owned the shop…noted for music boring,
    Throughout their stores played horrible tunes…not one song was alluring
    He knew he shouldn’t feel such angst…Oh no…now the pant hem?
    It’s looking short…he wants to scream…”Hey look..they’re UP AND AT EM”!🕴🏻

  3. Good morning. I had little trouble with the words but a devil 👿 of a time with the cartoon answer. After some time I actually had the answer down on paper but thought it was wrong. The answer grows on you because the longer I stare at it, the more I like it. At first I thought it was lame. Saw you message From yesterday Angela, still have one without electricity. They should get it back today some time. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Same thing with my family…one house still out…Huntington…So much food gone to waste…Have a good one…Be well, stay dry…and be safe out there…⏰🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Seeing Up in my letters as well as And led me pretty quickly to the answer, though I too was surprised Ad was part of it. I had plenty of trouble with Agency and needed to back in.
    Wishing all a great day.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. Kudos on the solve! 👏🏻👏🏻..And yes, it definitely surprised me…And it looks like Agency may be today’s stumper. Have a good one, Caroline…Be well and stay safe…⏰🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. First time in several days I got the cartoon solution,and rather easily at that.Usher and medley seemed familiar to me.As far as the storm,I have a friend who moved to Ct,last year,and he was without power for 36 hrs before having it restored last night,but then had on and off power this morning.

    • Good Afternoon, Professor. USHER, as I’ve mentioned was seen in March, and the last time MEDLEY appeared was in December. Considerably recent for both.And yes, CT was hit bad also. I have one cousin out there…(She strayed from the fold)! 😂..And she was out for almost 2 full days. Sad thing is, there’s so many people still out in the Tri-State area. Be well, Prof, and stay safe…⏰🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. He left work early, put on his PLAID shirt and went to the movies. The USHER showed him to his seat, and the movie started out showing a short MEDLEY of coming attractions. He grinned when he thought of his co-workers back at the AGENCY working hard. When the movie was over, he got up and said ” well, “UP AND AD EM.” ANOM.

  7. Hi all – Paused to check the spelling of PLAID, took a second to try the U at the beginning for USHER, put LY at the end to get and mis-spell MEDLEY (but it didn’t matter), and just recognized AGENCY from having seen it so many times. It does fit the woman’s job at the Ad Agency, though. Got the answer from the dialog.
    I liked the reading glasses on the table although there’s nothing to read, and also thought there should be a clock there, especially with the subject of time in the puzzle.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The head USHER decided to act as an AGENCY of change and allow the audience to wear PLAID, fringe leather and a whole MEDLEY of other styles at the lecture.”

    Angela, you derailed my train of thought completely this morning by talking about “Mad Men.” I thought about them having to do Zoom meetings now, and of course that brought the “Zou Bisou Bisou” (or maybe “Zoomy-Zoomy-Zoom”) performance to mind. I never watched the show (of course 😂 ) but I read about that episode somewhere and checked it out on YouTube. That and the series-ending Coke commercial are the only two things I’ve seen from it.

    • Hey Steve. If I may, I think you’re missing what makes the cartoon ADD up…In this scenario, those aren’t reading glasses. People who wear glasses take them off when they sleep…and place them on the nightstand. And we can’t see the woman’s side of the bed…So, if she is in need of an alarm of any kind to awaken her, STANDS to reason it’d be on her nightstand, no?…And I’ve never seen “Mad Men“ either…not a one..So I’m sorry, but I can’t reLATE to either of the episodes you’re mentioning. But after it being on for eight years, you hear things! 😂 Plus, as you’ve said, there’s been a zillion articles written about it. But I definitely DO know Jon Hamm! 😂 Have a good one, Steve…Be well and stay safe out there…⏰🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. No problem with the words or cartoon answer this morning. Agency has tripped me up before but not today. I totally loved “Mad Men”, Angela. Never missed an episode. One of my favorite episodes was the one where Don introduced the Kodak Carousel. That show perfectly depicted that era. So sorry for all of your relatives who are still without power. I do hope it gets restored soon – such widespread damage. Take care all.

    • Hi Betty…Unfortunately, I cant appreciate your enthusiasm! I never watched “Mad Men”. IDK why, either…🤷🏻‍♀️ Just never did. But the women in my family all did, and they en masse constantly raved about it…especially the fashions…And said exactly what you’re saying…how it had the decade down to a T…Maybe I should binge watch it, now that we’re still quarantined…And thanks for your concern. This storm hit us all…almost as badly as Sandy did. Between NY and Jersey, (Oh yeah, and that prodigal cousin) 😉 we’re all commiserating with one another. A lot of loss…I just pray we’e not in store for any more. It’s only August! 😱 Be well, Betty…and stay safe out there…⏰🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Another one where knowing the answer you could work backwards and get the jumbled words.

    • Good Morning, Ronald. I say all roads lead to Rome…there’s no one way to do the Jumble! I do the solve first too…I find it more fun that way. Thanks for commenting, Ronald…Be well and stay safe out there…⏰🙋🏻‍♀️
