  1. Good Morning, Everyone. 📱 THE THINGS YOU DOO,DAD 📱

    🎶There are things that I’d forgotten that I loved about the man…But I’ll always remember the love in DADDY’S HANDS”…”DADDY’S HANDS” – Holly Dunn 1991 https://tinyurl.com/r397sybp

    📱 The man’s career is Real Estate, with magic on the side,
    He lives life with a ZESTY charm, his foibles he can’t hide…
    He’s known to DODGE some little things, he sometimes acts the fool,
    But loyalty a strong suit, stubbornness just like a mule…
    He comes up with some crazy stuff, which his wife’s learned to PARDON,
    His DONKEY-like persistence mixed with charm…it’s hard to harden
    One’s feelings when it comes to him, he always tries his best
    Though most times with the end result…things hardly pass the test…
    But this guy is an optimist..and tinkering makes him glad…
    Reactions they may differ though towards him and his DOODADS! 📱

    DOODADS…. https://tinyurl.com/j8v9mw It’s a great word, don’t you think? Dating back to 1905, it’s not heard all that often today, but when it is, it still conjures up some silliness. And the way David’s chosen to use it here today, with this MODERN twist? Clever…very clever indeed! And that’s no DAD joke!

    In a repeat of yesterday, we’ve no new words this morning. And left to their own DEVICES, the Early Birds did DOO quite well with them all. And when it came to the solve, with those “Ds” running wild? Let’s just say it was SOLDER gold!

    But our cartoon? Now here’s where it really became CLAIRE…Ladies and Gentlemen…Phil Dunphy. https://tinyurl.com/kkk6fvy8 IMO? One of the best TV characters of all time, from the show “Modern Family”. https://tinyurl.com/4pbeyfmr Seen here with his younger daughter, Alex, and his chip off the old crock son Luke, we see this TV DAD, DOOing what he did best, tinkering around with another of his wild inventions. https://tinyurl.com/b3r8uxr And with Luke saying “Mom’s going to love it”, we’re not only getting the hint to DAD, but to those in the know, we’re also getting a reminder of the life of the long suffering Claire. But even if you’re not a fan of “Modern Family”, there’s no missing what David’s INVENTION, I mean intention was here…Small devices and gadgets? This Father loved showing off his DOODADS!

    Jeff’s Gems? Just what you’d imagine Phil would need…There on the table in front of him, we can see a soldering gun, coils of wire, protective glasses with its case, a tube of glue, tiny light bulbs, scissors, a screwdriver, a paint brush, and a small bottle of paint. All to help him perfect his re-designed Remote Control…which now has a little red flag attached to a bell, and a lighted golf ball. To Phil…it’s new and improved. And to his family…one more classic DOODAD!

    So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and here’s just a glimpse into “Modern Family’s” running gag of Phil and his Remote Control… https://tinyurl.com/xn8w55mc And DAD’s all she wrote…📱🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🐴 After the cart displaying the DOODADS was overturned again by the way too ZESTY DONKEY, there was no way they could PARDON it and DODGE complaints at the same time…🐴

    🤷🏻‍♀️ Thinking she had a good idea, Grandmother thought to try,
    That game where pin a DONKEY tail might help the time go by…
    Granted it wasn’t ZESTY, by the standards of today,
    But she figured she would take a shot…and set up the display…
    The kids…they chose to DODGE it though, and boredom then set in,
    Rejection was their answer…so it never did begin…
    And soon Grandma was saying…”PARDON me, I guess my bad…
    I’m not into newfangled things…computers and DOODADS”! 🤷🏻‍♀️

  3. Good morning. Easy as a morning dew. Maybe Sunday the hammer will fall. Breezed through both parts of jumble. Only it wasn’t a blind solve. Almost though. I’ll sign off and read everybody later. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Morning DOO? 😉 And no worries…Tomorrow’s is looking good! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. This one came fast to me. At last……………
    No prob with the anagrams and the solution.
    Fun way to enter the weekend!

  5. Hi Everybody – I mistakenly had Pandor (pander) instead of Pardon, but the circled letters A and O were still the same. The answer didn’t take long once I saw Dad. I agree that Doodads is a great word that “conjures up some silliness.” I hadn’t heard it for a very long time and needed to check the dictionary to make sure it was a real word.

    • Hi Caroline – Off topic, I thought you might like this. It’s been 50 years since the release of Joni Mitchell’s “Blue” 😱😱 and The Guardian has a story with musicians talking about their favorite songs from the album, including James Taylor, Carole King, David Crosby, Graham Nash and many others.

      • Thank you, Steve. I actually saw that article and even forwarded it to a friend who adores James Taylor. This morning I was listening to public radio, which was playing lots of Joni Mitchell tunes sung by her and others.

        • Steve, the radio show was actually Folk Alley radio on a local fm station. It was also celebrating “Blue.”

  6. An easy Saturday puzzle w a quick solve of the “D” anagrams and cartoon as well.A rare Saturday at home for us,w our usually Saturday duty of watching our 6 year old twin girls in Dixon,superseded by their family trip to sunny Florida.

    • Good Morning, Professor. “D”efinitely an easy, breezy one! Enjoy your day! 📱🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Super easy one this morning. Okay Miss Angela now you have me humming Camptown Races too. Wishing everyone a good Saturday.

    • Scary, right? 😂 🤦🏻‍♀️…Wishing you a good Saturday too, Betty. Enjoy! 📱🙋🏻‍♀️

        • LOL!!! ..”D” lightful…it’s “D” elicious..it’s “D” lovely! Have a good one, Christian! 📱🙋🏻‍♀️

          • Now you’ve got me humming a commercial – maybe from the Dinah Shore show? – “It’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s DeSoto!” 😂

  8. Hi all – No problem with the words today. I couldn’t guess the answer, but with the letters and the word ending in ‘S’, I saw the clever pun on DAD; nice!

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Thanks for all the info on Modern Family, Angela. I never saw it so I wouldn’t have known what the cartoon referenced!

    “You have to PARDON the DONKEY for bolting in order to DODGE the ZESTY bunch of noisy kids running over to bother him.”

  9. Hi Terry…I hope you get to see this. I don’t want you to think that I forgot about getting back to you yesterday…I didn’t…I just forgot to post it. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I copied the link for you in the afternoon, but just now saw it, as I was deleting some files…Sorry for delay..

    Here’s one of the songs that you were thinking of…🎶Road to Morocco🎶 – Hope and Crosby. Music by Edward Chester Babcock! Boy, he sure DODGEd a bullet with that name change, huh? 😉 Hope your day’s gone well, Terry…and wishing you both a great Saturday night! Enjoy! 🐪🙋🏻‍♀️ https://tinyurl.com/7vvmy8sh
