  1. Good Morning, Everyone 🚶🏻‍♀️STRIDE…AND CREDULOUS? 🚶🏻‍♀️

    🎶 I keep a close watch on this heart of mine…I keep my eyes wide open all the time…I keep the ends out for the tie that binds…Because you’re mine, I WALK THE LINE…Because you’re mine, I WALK THE LINE…🎶 “I Walk the Line“ – Johnny Cash 1956 https://tinyurl.com/y5ko76ku

    🚶🏻‍♀️This quarantine has taken toll..we’re eating in-between,
    That’s why they’ve given it a name…the “Quarantine Fifteen”…
    The SHIRT’s a little tighter, the jeans a little snug…
    It seems like clothes have shrunken…cause it’s all needing a tug…
    The UPDATE, sad as it may sound, is that this stay in place
    Has somehow caused a bunch of us to often stuff our face…
    I know I’m eating a lot more…I tried to blame the dryer,
    But deep inside I know the truth…I’m loving my deep fryer!
    So like our girls here exercise a few of us will need,
    To counteract these past few months…and all that extra feed…
    (I’m trying to work GRAFT in here, but it don’t fit the theme
    And graft makes me think of Draft Beer…it’s been so long it seems)
    But anyway, the places that now SOFTEN way too much,
    We hope to tighten them all up, by walking and the such…
    Here’s hoping soon it’s safe out there, and we won’t have to hide,
    And we’ll regain some normalcy…I’m praying for GREAT STRIDES…🚶🏻‍♀️

    Ok, I’m going to try to do this briskly…With no new words today, it’s FONSET that gave a few of the Early Birds a hard time…And you’d think that with grown men they wouldn’t feel the need to do a riff about Fonsie…but that’s the trail they walked down this morning. I swear…with these guys some mornings it’s two steps forward…and some mornings it’s two steps back…Today it was a long stretch back…Anyway…

    Our cartoon. We see two women, wearing their fit bits, walking the walk. And from our dialogue, we learn that the one who chose to walk in an effort to lose weight…has worked herself up to a few miles a day…she’s made GREAT STRIDES! https://tinyurl.com/y5eocov2 Get it? In more ways than one! Excellent pun! And an easy breezy solution…a regular walk in the park! …And speaking of…The park…We’ve been here before. Do you recognize the place? Déjà vu…you too? The curved path, and the Clock Tower? We were here quite recently, in fact…in June. Twice. https://tinyurl.com/yavvgb9k and https://tinyurl.com/yxrja6qo…And it’s still putting me through my paces, because I don’t know where it is… So if anyone out there does? Please step up and let me know…

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Wishing you all a wonderful day…Be well, stay safe… And I’ll leave you with a little walking humor…I recently walked down a street where the houses were numbered as such: 64K, 128K, 512K, and 1MB. Boy, that was definitely a trip down memory lane…🎤! 🚶🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🎋 After receiving the Gardening Clubs latest UPDATE, she realized that she‘d need to make GREAT STRIDES if she was to have her presentation done in time, and rushing to SOFTEN the soil to GRAFT a new plant, resulted in her getting dirt all over her SHIRT…🎋

    🤷🏻‍♂️ Accusing him of GRAFT it seemed did nothing to dispel,
    The rumors that surrounded him…would nothing help to quell?
    His insolence and arrogance…a big stuffed SHIRT was he
    And he cared not to SOFTEN the opinions one degree …
    No matter what the UPDATE, and no matter what he’d hide
    They couldn’t get him disbarred…they just failed to make GREAT STRIDES…🤷🏻‍♂️

  3. Good morning. No problem with jumble today. It was as easy as one,two,three. Even the cartoon answer was simple. Loved your song choice Angela. You could listen to him for hours. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Tks, I’m glad you liked it…I enjoy listening to him too. And yes, it’s an easy, breezy one today. I’m glad to see you here, Paul. I hope you’re feeling better than you did yesterday. Be well and stay safe out there…🚶🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • 👏🏻👏🏻 Looks like we’re all in sync today! Good Morning, Caroline..Hope your day’s going well…Stay safe out there…🚶🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Hi all – Got the answer from the dialog. Got UPDATE when I tried the UP trick (close relative of the UN trick). I was stuck at SOFTEN until I wrote down the letters but saw it as soon as I did.

    And yes, there’s that same clock tower again.

    As you walked by those houses Angela, I hope you were feeling CHIPper. And no wonder you posted that song, because the woman probably had to make sure she had enough CACHE to buy her drink.

    Good wishes to everyone. We’re having record-breaking heat (90 in SF, 98 in Oakland yesterday), but compared to the rest of the country, I’m not complaining.

    “An UPDATE to the city’s laws made GREAT STRIDES to SOFTEN the effects of the GRAFT scheme they had uncovered, so that the taxpayers wouldn’t lose their SHIRT.”

  5. I’m in line with everyone else puzzle wise today. Everything fell into place nicely. Love Johnny Cash. Quarantine Fifteen – good one Angela. I’ve also heard this time referred to as the Poundemic. Have a good day all.
