  1. Good Morning, Everyone… I hope this finds you well…

    🎶 If I had my life to live over I know just what I’d like to be…A PAMPERED PET of a rich brunette …Sitting on my Mama’s knee …🎶 “A Dog’s Life” – Elvis 1966 https://tinyurl.com/mu628pj3

    🦟 The Dog Show of Westminster…it’s been around for years,
    With owners who have SWORN their pets deserving of all cheers…
    The dogs have POISE and LENGTH of charm…they truly show their worth,
    Their owners having trained them to be regal since their birth…
    (I’ll stop here just to mention that PAGODA failed the test,
    There’s just no place to put it…it’s not blending with the rest)…
    But today though, a different spin…The award they’ll bestow?
    Upon a tiny Flea…since he’s ranking the “PEST” IN SHOW…🦟

    The Westminster Dog Show… https://tinyurl.com/23bmb2fe …What a TAIL…But today, the story’s about Bugs…Flying, crawling, swarming, buzzing…bugs…PESTS, the lot of them. And just as with the dogs, as far as training goes, I’m sure their owners started from SCRATCH…

    Center ring…about to witness the awarding of the first place ribbon for what’s called the BEST IN SHOW… https://tinyurl.com/y2xwtdd …And having beat out the Horse’s Fly, and the Corn Farmer’s (note his cap) Grasshopper, we see it’s Fido’s Flea that FLEW AWAY with it all..He’s the “PEST” IN SHOW…. ….And if you look real closely, you can see the tiny Flea in Fido’s paw…Bottom line? No head SCRATCHING or RASH decisions with this one…It wasn’t RUFF at all…

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…and I’ll leave you a little insect humor…A father was reading a Bible story to his young son. He said: “There was a man named Lot who was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city…but his wife looked back and was turned to salt”. … And the son asked, “But what happened to the flea”? Give it a minute…🦟🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 🤷🏻‍♂️His drawing of the PAGODA was definitely slated to be BEST IN SHOW, and he was SWORN to stay to the end, but he eventually lost his POISE when the LENGTH of the presentation ran over three hours…🤷🏻‍♂️

    🤷🏻‍♂️He needed a PAGODA built in back of his new house,
    The LENGTH of it…he wasn’t sure…’twas up to his dear spouse..,
    But he had SWORN he’d have it done…so not to hear the noise…
    He promised to look into it…so she would keep her POISE
    The time involved, the cost of it? …God knows he doesn’t know…
    But he’ll hire a top-notch firm…so it’ll be BEST IN SHOW! 🤷🏻‍♂️

  3. 🥇 We’ve got owners who swear by their pets,
    They’re determined to not have regrets…
    Out to win the top prize,
    Their faith completely lies…
    In the training the past has beget…🥇

    🐕 Westminster…it definitely speaks class,
    Dogs with poise who rate with the top brass…
    Owners out to defeat,
    All comers at the meet…
    Where the dogs are all brought out en masse…🐕

    🐜Took a twist though and brought out the bugs,
    Who to me are as ruthless as thugs…
    I don’t mess with no fleas,
    Or these flies…If you please…
    Just a look? And where’s the tranquil drugs? 🐜

    🤷🏻‍♀️Never thought of a bug winning fame,
    To me they always cheat at their game…
    They sneak up on you quick,
    Seems they know a few tricks…
    Up to me…every bug be’d defamed!

    🐶 But today we see Fido’s big grin,
    It’s a blue ribbon day just for him…
    Him and his little flea,
    All the judges agree…
    Have achieved success over the brim! 🐶

  4. It’s taco-Tuesday and I deserve some wonton tacos because I couldn’t place PEST in the show ! The anagrams were there , but I really tried to find a connection with the insects and that word ! Yes , I know that insects are pests , but it just didn’t click with Westminster dog shows and the letters ! Oh well , I hope I can get over the hump and get tomorrow with ease ! So Angela , I’ll leave you with , What do you call a rabbit with fleas ? “ Bugs Bunny “ ! Everyone have a great Wednesday !!!!!

  5. Oh dear….everyone keep those BUG jokes a comin’ !! Sorry I don’t have one to share. Yes, Angela…didn’t get yours first time through. Let it sink in and voila, it sunk in correctly after a moment. But back to the puzzle. Took just a moment to come up with the blind solve….the IN SHOW was the give-away for me. And anagrams followed speedily. So all in all, a great Taco Tuesday morning. And let’s not forget that wonderfully funny mocumentary movie. All the characters were super, but Fred Willard brought down the house with his announcer antics.

      • Angela, I’ll even go back further in time ( mid-70’s) to watch Fernwood Tonight…with Fred as bumbling announcer, along with Martin Mull.. very creative satire. Will still watch on YouTube to this day !!

        • Terry…I’ve heard the name, but I’ve never seen it. But I see that it’s available on Amazon, so if I get a chance I might check it out. 🙋🏻‍♀️

          • No need for Amazon…just search on YouTube. There are several short clips and full episodes. Let me know what you think

  6. Good morning. Really on a bad roll lately. Had to look up Pagoda and even the answer to the cartoon. Think it’s time to get back to my blueberries and strawberries with my cereal. Another first Angela with your song pick. Was it ever on the B side of his records. You do come up with some doozies. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good morning again. Angela I just realized I didn’t answer your question Sunday on which song I thought of besides your pick. I was thinking of Pillow Talk, the movie popped into my head after hearing yours. Take care.

    • Good Morning, Paul….Well, those blueberries did seem to work! 😉 As for the song, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a B side of anything. It’s from a 1996 movie, “Paradise, Hawaiian Style” https://tinyurl.com/y4he5acn that Elvis starred in….which was a doozie in itself! 😂 Have a good one, Paul. Be well and stay safe out there…🐶🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Paul…I wondered why my comments didn’t appear in order 🤷🏻‍♀️…until I saw that you had posted your second comment as a reply to your first…once that’s done, everything else follows suit…🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. I didn’t catch on to the pest reference to get the cartoon solution.Plus snow in the offing overnight, yuck, as in Chuck.

  8. Nothing bugging me this morning. Got the anagrams and cartoon answer without difficulty. Clever puzzle. Have a good Taco Tuesday all!

  9. Good one today. Got the first three clues, but pagoda stumped me. Then, looking at the context of the show, I remembered the winning title, ” best in show,” therefore “pest 🪳 in show”! 😃👍👏
    Loved the choice of competitors 🤗.
