  1. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…
    1️⃣-2️⃣ YOU DON’T KNOW THE HALVE OF IT! 1️⃣-2️⃣

    🎶 There I’ve done it, there I’ve said it…THERE YOU HAVE IT, I don’t regret it ….I’d give you my love in a minute…If you want it, come and get it…There I’ve done it, there I’ve said it…THERE YOU HAVE IT…🎶 “There You Have It” – Blackhawk 1998 https://tinyurl.com/y4ghar95

    1️⃣-2️⃣ The little boy of SYRUPY voice, you gotta love this kid,
    Who thinks he’s THINLY hiding how he’s getting in his bid…
    He’s def one not to GARBLE, nor the subject to DIVERT,
    He’s eying up that sandwich…and the fruits for his dessert…
    The teacher’s trying hard to teach…LAVISH is her display,
    Dividing by the number two is the lesson today…
    But like a SMOKER tries to quit, and oft times has no luck,
    I’m not too sure this one lesson with all the kids has stuck…
    The other little boy looks like he’s still confused a bit…
    I think the teacher’s premature with her…THERE YOU “HALVE” IT 1️⃣-2️⃣

    I love a good Idiom…Heck, I love any Idiom. Any todays is one of my favorites. THERE YOU HAVE IT. I end every one of these posts with it, I say it out loud to the TV whenever the inevitable happens, I use it as my parting shot when I’ve won an argument…I even say it out loud to myself every time I finish putting together my lasagna…Weird, I know, but it’s just something I think I say just about every day…So, today? Well…THERE YOU HAVE IT!

    Anyway…our words today are all old favorites, but that didn’t keep the Early Birds from doing a DOUBLE take on a few of them. And this morning, just about every one of them had a little trouble getting it all to ADD UP…I was hearing Hintly, Purser, Driver…and Beagle was pretty much DIVIDED amongst them all. (Hintly? WT)? So suffice to say, it took a little longer than usual this morning for them to give the old THERE YOU HAVE IT…And we have two Repeat Repeats, with BAGLER from way back on Oct 31st, 2010, and KORMES from October 28th, ‘19. But the solve itself? Now that they didn’t HALVE any trouble with…Ok, now let’s give our unDIVIDED attention to our cartoon…

    In what looks to be a second grade classroom, today we see four little ones, and their teacher. With the lesson being dividing by two, she’s decided to take a sandwich, an apple, and a banana, and cut them in HALVES. But I guess she didn’t realize that she had a young Dagwood in training, because that little guy at the end couldn’t care less about the Math…he’s not taking any TIME(s) at all asking for that food. And I just can’t help but find him adorable. He just EATS up the scenery, IMO…No pun intended. But as I mentioned earlier, the teacher FIGURES they all got it, so she said…”THERE YOU “HALVE” IT! And yes, she’s right there…you do HALVE the objects…But as far as the HAVING it goes? I’m not so sure…It could be only HALVE of them got it…Too bad we’re only seeing the faces of HALF of the four kids…It reminds me of a time back in school when a friend and I were both struggling with some division problems. Then we decided to put our heads together…and voila! We were finished in no time…We concurred and divided…

    Eye candy? It’s got to be my little Cutie Patootie holding his finger up…you know like people do when they’re looking to bring attention to something. That kid is just so right on POINT…

    So…(Wait for it…)…THERE YOU HAVE IT, https://tinyurl.com/y5drpulv Folks, Done. Have a good one…Be well, stay safe, and try not to sweat the small stuff today. With all that’s happening out there, there’s just no need to go around SPLITTING hairs…1️⃣-2️⃣ 🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🚬 Trying to DIVERT the conversation away from the fact that he was still a SMOKER, he tried telling this LAVISH story in that SYRUPY voice of his…but THINLY getting over, he began to GARBLE…and she looked at him…and said…”THERE YOU HAVE IT…I can see right through you…”🚬

    🥃 Years ago they held a SMOKER, ‘twas for sure a LAVISH meet,
    With SYRUPY desserts and THINLY cuts of top shelf meat…
    But one night the chosen speaker drank too much and then of course,
    His words were all a GARBLE and it definitely was his loss
    With no way to DIVERT damage he had caused by being lit…
    The night remains a sore spot..people say THERE YOU HAVE IT…🥃

  3. Hi Everyone – Interesting that my toughest word is at the bottom of the voting list – smoker. Unlike you, Angela, I don’t think I ever use the idiom. Sometimes I do say voila, which you also have in your post. Wishing all a good, safe holiday.

    • Caroline…I deleted my comment to you, because I misread yours. What I get for running around like a chicken without a head! 😉 So…again, I think you did very well if your hardest word was Smoker…and as far as idioms go? There’s just way too many of them stuck in my head…But the Voila? I’ll definitely be thinking of you from now on! 😂 Have a good one, Caroline…Be well and stay safe out there..1️⃣-2️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Bob. A lot of sites and papers print the old Jumble puzzles on Sundays. It’s been that way for a long time. If you’d like todays 6-word puzzle, Google the Chicago Tribune. Their website prints this, the correct puzzle. 🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Bob…I just checked the link you sent. But it’s showing the same puzzle as we have here…🤷🏻‍♀️

  4. I’m with Caroline this morning. Smoker was the word that took me the longest to solve, though it really isn’t that difficult. Cartoon answer fell into place nicely so all in all it was a successful Sunday. Wishing all of you a good day.

    • Good Morning, Betty…Wishing you a good Sunday too. Be well and stay safe…1️⃣-2️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Hi all – I paused at THINLY before noticing the LY suffix, and then GARBLE took the longest after seeing BAGLE, GABLE and “Hedda GABLER” (a movie.)
    I thought the answer might be something like “Nothing Two It”, but when HALVE fit, it showed the answer.

    It would have been funny if the teacher had used “halvah” as one of the demonstration items and then they could have had dessert after the sandwiches and fruit.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    The takeoff on “divide and conquer/concur” made me laugh, Angela, and your noticing that only HALF the kids’ faces were shown.

    “He didn’t GARBLE or THINLY disguise his plain message to DIVERT the SMOKER from the buffet’s LAVISH SYRUPY dessert.”

    • Hey Steve…LOL! Tks! And I’m thinking us seeing only half the faces was a purposeful bit of whimsy…If not, it should have been! 😉 Enjoy your day…and stay safe out there. 1️⃣-2️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️
