  1. Good Morning, Everyone….✈️ JET …REPULSION? ✈️

    🎶You talk too much, you worry me to death…You talk too much you even worry my pet…You just talk…talk, talk…Talk too much…🎶… “You Talk Too Much” – Joe Jones 1960 https://tinyurl.com/2p8t55rd

    ✈️ Our words today are good ones…but for this my daily prose?
    I’d really like to OBJECT, ‘cause together? Problems posed…
    A JOIST? And then a MOMMY? And airplanes we see speak?
    Well trust me, it’s not easy…I’ve no paddle…just the creek…
    And yes, it does SUBDUE me, rhymes have never done me in,
    But here today? (Again… Mommy)?…The angst’s not wearing thin…
    There’s no way that these words meld in this theme…but no regret…
    I’d rather pass than speak nonsense…like MUMBO JUMBO JET! ✈️

    So…JOIST, I mean just, one repeat anagram today, SIJTO from 2019. And I think it might be the only word to keep everyone from BEAMing this morning. Show of hands…When was the last time you heard Joist brought up in conversation? Not exactly cocktail party banter…but definitely a good anagram. The solve? Again, an idiom I’m familiar with – the MUMBO JUMBO, not the JET part – so I got it immediately…But in all honesty, I’ve always known it as Mumble Jumble. So I’m thinking…Well, for FLYING out loud, have I been mispronouncing it all along? And even though I got that the “JUMBO”…obvious not just by the drawing but also the dialogue…”He’s so big”, was referring to the enormity of the Jet, and hence the pun…for that FLEETing moment I was curious..So I looked it up to see if I might have been victim of a malaprop all these years. And I found this. https://tinyurl.com/2p8vz8f9 Hmm…No biggie, I suppose. I mean if you’re going to talk nonsense, I guess it doesn’t really matter what you call it now, does it? FUEL for thought…

    Anyway, here we are at the airport. And since I’m no connoisseur of aircraft, instead of giving you some FLY by night guess, I’m not even going to try to identify the jets. PLANE and simple…They may be accurate depictions, or just some figment of Jeff’s imAVIATION, but either way, I’m not GETTING ON BOARD…But we do see two smaller planes, discussing the rather imposing third, an obvious fan of the musical, “Hair”… And BOEING that he’s so big, and the nonsense that he’s speaking FLIES over their heads, we learn that the best way for these smaller planes to deal with his lack of communication skills is to just nod and go with the FLOW. A move in the FLIGHT direction I suppose…And anyway, that MUMBO JUMBO JET has the Jumble “J” on its rudder…so I’m pretty sure he gets a WORD or two in edgewise…

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Be well, stay safe…and speaking of jets, have you heard that due to Covid, the King of Spain is BOEING forced to quarantine aboard his private jet? Yes..sadly, the REIGN of SPAIN stays mainly on the PLANE! …and if that one gets OFF THE GROUND…I’m good! ✈️🙋🏻‍♀️

    PS: I don’t know if any of you pay attention to the comments that appear after the song videos…but I enjoy reading them, and this first one caught my eye…A man wrote…”I dedicated this song (You Talk Too Much) to my wife on a NYC radio station a few years ago…and on the same program she dedicated “Get a Job” to me”…Boy I’d love to have been a FLY on the wall in their CABIN that night! You can’t tell me he wasn’t LEARy about going home! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🙇🏻‍♂️ Not understanding his MOMMY as she tried to explain what the OBJECT of the JOIST was, he thought to himself that she may as well have been speaking about a MUMBO JUMBO JET as far as he was concerned…and he decided to SUBDUE the rest of his inquisitiveness….🙇🏻‍♂️

    📃 They were having a new house built, the blueprints on the table,
    And the child tried to reach to see, but he was just unable….
    What interest could he have in them? A beam, a JOIST, a measure?
    But you know kids…and so to him…it was a map of treasure…
    He called out for his MOMMY to lift him up to see,
    But she began to OBJECT, feeling tired…and ennui…
    So trying to SUBDUE him, she said…”Oh, did you forget?
    We planned to read your new book…’bout the MUMBO JUMBO JET”! 📃

  3. 🤷🏻‍♂️While they’re trying their best to make sense,
    Of the gobbledegook he’ll dispense…
    His huge size gives them pause,
    So they just nod because…
    He intimidates despite being dense! 🤷🏻‍♂️

    🔠 Conversationalist he’ll never be,
    ‘Cause he garbles the A-B and Cs…
    But the jet is so huge,
    That the others excuse…
    And they just pretend that they agree…🔠

    ✈️ Mumbo Jumbo the name it is dubbed,
    When one’s words are all screwed up and flubbed…
    But it just goes to show,
    It’s not just who you know…
    Since our jet doesn’t have his flights scrubbed! ✈️

  4. 🎵 oh , big old jet airliner , don’t carry me too far away ! Oh big old jet airliner , cause it’s here that I got to stay ! 🎵 even though I would love to go back to California and see everyone ! I just had a hard time with trying to imagine airliners having a conversation between flights . It was all just MUMBO JUMBO ! The anagrams were there on the ground and didn’t fly anywhere ! Everyone have a great thirsty Thursday and let’s pilot through this cold !!

  5. Had an easy time with the cartoon, as JET was the obvious missing word…and Nicholas Cage uses the phrase MUMBO JUMBO in the movie The Family Man (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Family_Man), a good movie I’ve watched a dozen times. But I had to back into SUBDUE, using letters from the cartoon. Have a great Thursday!

  6. Easy blind solve this morning….kinda knew JUMBO JET was part of it and MUMBO fit right in. A good thing as it helped me back in OBJECT. Good song, but am fairly unfamiliar with it. Hope everyone stays warm and cozy today and frigid temps cover the U.S.of A.

  7. Good morning. After seeing the first word I thought it was going to be another no brainer but thank goodness the other three had you pause to solve. I needed the letters to solve the cartoon answer. You could see jumbo jet but without seeing the letters mumbo would never come to me. Enjoyed the song and the PS comment. You had me laughing. That’s getting back at him real good. Then once the bum does get a job he can come back with the follow up “Got a job”. Had both records at one time. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe

    • LOL! Good Morning, Paul…Thank you..l gave myself a good laugh too…and I had my fingers crossed that somebody would get the drift..👏🏻👏🏻! …And both of these great old songs are part of what I have from my Father. Gotta love this music…And this one’s for you…Be well, stay safe…and Enjoy! https://tinyurl.com/mrb5ka45 🎶🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Lyrics to “Good Morning Starshine” from the musical “Hair”
    “Gliddy glub gloopy, nibby nabby noopy la, la, la, lo, lo
    Sabba sibby sabba, nooby abba nabba, le, le, lo, lo
    Tooby ooby walla, nooby abba naba
    Early mornin’ singin’ song”
    Ah, the 60’s!😎

  9. Today is NATIONAL CHEESE LOVERS DAY! I love cheese! What would life BRIE without it? I don’t think I CURD stand it..So…Enjoy some cheese today…And I SWISS you all the best! 🧀🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️https://tinyurl.com/4wafp26v

  10. As the monarch of the skies glides in
    Other jets just feel they can’t win
    Though Jumbo’s talk is all prattle
    It wins every word battle
    So the other planes simply give in!

  11. Just a “plane” cute puzzle this morning. Wondered where we were going with all those m’s & j’s but it was an easy solve. “The reign of Spain”. -you’re just too clever, Angela. 😂 Have a good day all!
