  1. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…
    👟 IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED…TIE, TIE AGAIN 👟

    🎶 He wears tan shoes with pink SHOE LACES, a polka dot vest and man, oh, man…He wears tan shoes with pink SHOE LACES…And a big Panama with a purple hat band…🎶 “Pink Shoe Laces” – Dodie Stevens 1959 https://tinyurl.com/y2b7y48g

    👟 A little girl sits with her Mom, and learns to tie her shoes,
    Familiar sight to most of us, this isn’t headline news…
    But I was entertained, because I suffer from a plight,
    Directionally challenged… Means I can’t tell left from right
    For I was born a leftie, but my Grandma made me switch,
    She harbored fears that I was kin to devils or a witch
    And as if I had caused a SINGE…turned into an OUTLAW,
    Determined was She to correct what to Her was a flaw…
    But as an AVIARY’s used to cage songbirds who sing,
    She’d sit me down upon the COUCH and try to clip my wings…
    So tying shoes? I had it aced…but I’ve been confused since…
    My Grandma caused a loophole to what I thought WAS A CINCH! 👟

    As our week draws to a close, David’s given us all old favorites to work with…but we’re ending with a split decision. Yes, Folks, it’s a TIE. Because while the anagrams, GNIES, seen this past January, and TUWALO, going back to July ‘18, are KNOT new, Hucoc and Raayiv look to be gracing our pages for the first time…And while Aviary slightly ruffled the feathers of two of the Early Birds, it definitely didn’t TIE them up…and this puzzle was easily a SHOE-in…So on to our cartoon…

    Today we find ourselves in the presence of a young girl, who I’ll call LACEy, and her Mom, in what appears to be the entryway of their home. ApPARENTly, going by our dialogue, Mom has been working with Lacey trying to get her to master tying her shoes. Not always an easy task. But by the HOOKS of things it seems our girl has been all EARS listening to her Mother…and she’s finally gotten a GRIP on it. Yep, Lacey’s found the LOOPhole…Just pull back the Bunny ears…and Boom…the rest’s to TIE for! Easy? It literally (gotta love the double whammy)…WAS A CINCH! https://tinyurl.com/yymb4v3p

    Eye candy? While Jeff’s drawn the panel’s surroundings a little bare, it serves to bring the focus directly on our characters. And I know we’ve seen that yellow daisy on Lacey’s shirt before. But the jacket hanging by a hook, in such close proximity to the door, (whose window panes are drawn with “sun-streaked” lines to give the impression of outdoors), let’s me know that they’re at the homes’ threshold. And the pink Unicorn backpack lying on the floor, hints that Lacey’s about to leave for school…And they’re just TYING up any loose ends!

    So…There you have it Folks, Done…As for me and my strife story? I still, to this day, struggle with left and right, and I turned out ambidextrous…Often confused, but ambidextrous. But back then? Bottom line, once I was LEFT to my own devices, I found tying my shoes easy too. Did EYELET my Grandmother’s trying to help get in my way? No…and I definitely HEELed from the mixed messages…My Grandmother became my heart and SOLE…

    Have a good day, Everyone. Be well, stay safe…and hopefully today’s puzzle brought back a sweet memory for you also…The TIES that bind, huh? 👟🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 💁🏻‍♂️Feeling like an OUTLAW, after allowing them to SINGE his pride, he sat on the COUCH in the waiting area of the AVIARY, and decided it WAS A CINCH now to resign from the committee…💁🏻‍♂️

    🏆 They both loved Halloween, so dressing up was always fun,
    He’d go as an old OUTLAW…she his wife…both with fake guns,
    The party this year being held at the town’s local Zoo
    Beyond the AVIARY, in the room they’d built all new
    Their costumes were quite fancy, golden threads were done by COUCH…
    They really looked authentic…this guy definitely no slouch
    He’d even taken time to SINGE his hat along the brim
    To make it look more rustic…This guy? Nothing got by him…
    They walked into the party, he gave her hand a slight pinch…
    And sure enough, that first place prize? For them it WAS A CINCH! 🏆

  3. 🤚🏻 LEFT, RIGHT? ….NO…LEFT! 🤚🏻
    If you were, or have a left-handed child, I know you can relate to what I spoke of earlier. Lefties definitely don’t tie their shoes like right-handers. The tying’s reversed, and of course this makes it harder for right-handed parents to teach their kids. Today, there’s instructional videos…something totally unheard of in the past. They even sell aids now, like this card, https://tinyurl.com/y2stdy2d, designed so that parents who are lefties or righties can easily work with their left-handed kids. Just follow the illustrations, and you’ll help them practice until it becomes second nature. Imagine? But years ago? This all would have been thought of as out of LEFT field! https://tinyurl.com/y5gab7zl ! 🤚🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. The anagrams and cartoon solution were a cinch,just like the cartoon solution,”it was a cinch.”Definitely an easy Monday tyoe puzzle on a Friday.As far as learning to tie shoes,I recall my mother teaching me one way,and my Aunt Emily teaching me an alternate way,but I don’t recall what the difference was between the 2 methods.

    • Good Morning, Professor. Yes, it is an easy breezy one today. And I like your shoe-lace share. I guess they wanted to make sure you got it RIGHT! 😉 Enjoy your day, Prof. Be well and stay safe out there. 👟🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Good morning. I struck out on Singe and Aviary. Had to look both up. I had singe but it just didn’t register for unknown reasons. The cartoon answer was a snap. Loved the song choice Angela. It put a smile on my face. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  6. Hi Everyone – Another wonderful old song and video, Angela. I was unable to get Aviary until I had the answer and knew the a’s and i had to go in the circles.

  7. Hi all – Got the words except that AVIARY took 3 or 4 tries. I thought the answer might be “IT WAS A SNAP”, but realized that CINCH made a better pun (and had the right letters.)

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Great song Angela, brought back some memories. I guess that and Blue Suede Shoes would be the top two rock shoe songs, but yours wins for actually mentioning the laces. I laughed at the Early Birds hesitating at AVIARY, and really liked your poem despite it being an awful thing to do to a left-handed kid.

    I was surprised when I stumbled on websites devoted specifically to different lacing patterns although I guess I should have known by the popularity of sneakers. This one has 62+ ways, but I think I saw one with hundreds:

    • Hey Steve…LOL! I’m glad you enjoyed my Aviary take😉 and yes, it is a great old song. And to think she was only 13 years old when she recorded it. The left handed dilemma? Tks for the Shout Out…And yea, it did screw me up, but I know She had my best interest at heart. I don’t blame Her, I blame the silly superstitions She was raised believing in. …Now my Father on the other hand…(no pun intended) 😉He blamed Her! 😂 He felt I would have made a much better ball player if She and my Mother didn’t mess with my coordination! 😂. And I’m with you on the websites out there…I’ve been chuckling over them for years…Have a good one, Steve. Be well, stay safe…and may sanity prevail…👟🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Today’s puzzle was indeed a cinch this morning. My children did indeed learn to tie their shoes but Velcro was the fastener on most of the shoes they wore when they were very little so it put off the inevitable lesson for a while. Happy Friday to all.

  10. Angela and I have something in common: at 7 or 8 I broke my right arm which I wrote with and spent a couple of months in the hospital and had to learn to use my left hand. I too am now ambidextrous and somewhat dyslexic to boot. No problems with today’s Jumble. I think it was Chuck who said today’s was like a “Minday” puzzle, guess that’s what follows Sinday?
    We are supposed to get some rain tomorrow and Sunday, that will be a blessing!

    • C’mon, Mig…Play nice! I corrected the typo…I usually catch them, but I was rushing around a little this morning. And being ambidextrous can be fun, right? I do half things in life as a righty, and the other half a lefty. Confused a lot…but I guess it’s the best of both worlds! Have a good one, Mig. Hope you get your rain…👟🙋🏻‍♀️

  11. When I tried to unscramble GNIES, I tried singe, but mispronounced it in my head. I tried a couple of other unscramble, but then realized my error. I had a great-aunt named Signe, another unscramble of GNIES. She was a loving woman who died around 49 years ago.

    • Hi Dennis…Signe is such a pretty name. An old world name. You don’t hear names like that much anymore…Thanks for commenting Dennis, and here’s to a good night. We could all use some peace! 👟🙋🏻‍♀️
