YOVEN = ENVOY

SSULH = SLUSH

IVENDI = DIVINE

DNEWTA = WANTED

CARTOON ANSWER:

THE CUSTOMER WAS A PESSIMIST AND ORDERED HIS EGGS – – –

ENOYSUSDINWND = SUNNY-SIDE DOWN


Happy Tuesday, Jumble players! All of the clue words were instantly visible this morning leaving me plenty of time to enjoy the diner scene that we see in the cartoon. ENVOY would have been my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day if the EN wasn’t coupled together in the layout. Because of that, I’ll go ahead and choose DIVINE as the stumper for the day.

Today’s panel was a feast for the eyes with so much detail crammed into such a tiny space. Speaking of tiny spaces, the setting was obviously a diner where a customer is seen placing an order. By reading the dialogue and sentence we discover that our friend in the booth is feeling blue and at first I thought he just didn’t get enough sleep. Looking a little closer, I noticed a clue that made the whole puzzle click. Did you find it as well?

Take a gander at Mr. Glum Chums attire and you’ll probably notice that it’s not just any shirt that he’s wearing. It’s actually a hockey jersey and the maple leaf design on his sleeve and chest are actually the logo of the Toronto Maple Leafs. I’m not a hockey fan, but it was in all the local newspapers when the Boston Bruins elimiminated them from the Stanley Cup playoffs. It seems our fatigued fellow has a bit of a hockey hangover and he’s decided to satisfy his hunger with some eggs made to order the way he was feeling — sunny-side down! It was a brilliant surprise answer that came instantly as a blind solve.

There were plenty of other details in this piece that also deserved a mention. The name of this establishment is the Victoria Diner and it’s on both the front door and the menu. I really enjoyed the sugar packets neatly aligned in their container on the table. Placed next to it is a maple syrup container and a milk or cream pourer. In the background we see a piping hot stack of pancakes ready to be served along with a shadowy looking cook. Seated at a table just under the order window is a couple of people who seem to be enjoying their breakfast orders.

Today’s puzzle surely sated my Jumble craving for the day and I hope you enjoyed it as well. Have a terrific Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

ESIGN = SINGE

GYBUR = RUGBY

GLEEPD = PLEDGE

RONELG = LONGER

CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN THEY FOUND A BAG OF PEANUTS AT THE GRAND CANYON, THE SQUIRRELS – – –

GRDEOG = GORGED


Happy Monday, Jumble friends! A new week of puzzles is upon us, but let’s first take a quick look at the most difficult anagrams from last week. UGATOE, SLUBEH, and KARYEB were the most searched for clue word solutions while Tuesday’s surprise answer of AECERDRWY took the top prize. Were you able to see the answers immediately the second time around? There’s no doubt that we’ll see those anagrams in the future so I hope you all scored well on the pop quiz!

Today’s puzzle had some challenging clue words and I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them made it to the final spot next week. SINGE took me the longest to decipher and hasn’t been used in a puzzle since November of last year. Rarely do I get stumped on one of the 5-letter words so it was an interesting way to start the week. RUGBY was the runner-up but the “Y” trick proved successful once again. PLEDGE and LONGER came instantly into view allowing me to give my full attention to the cartoon.

With the final solution being only 6-letters in length, I thought for sure that I’d be able to pull off a blind solve but it just didn’t happen. Looking at today’s panel we see two squirrels that have just finished or are close to finishing off a bag of peanuts. The dialogue between the bushy tailed rodents tells us that they’ve stuffed themselves with peanutty goodness and are too full to move.

Having been to the Grand Canyon many years ago, I do remember that squirrels were everywhere. Doing a bit of research I discovered that the Grand Canyon has two distinct types of squirrels which are the “Albert” squirrel and the “Kaibab” squirrel. The Albert squirrels live at the South Rim and the Kaibab make their home in the North. The Grand Canyon formed a natural geographic barrier causing the species to separate into 2 different groups.

The cartoon had two interesting details that I’d like to share. If you look closely at the bag of peanuts, you just might notice a drawing on the label on the bag. It’s very small but it’s an elephant standing on a circus stool while balancing a ball on its trunk. The second detail that caught my eye involved the group of people taking in the scenery on the canyon ledge. The shadowy figure on the far right appears to be getting a little too close to the edge so the person next to him is reaching out to grab him!

The final solve came quickly after reading the cartoon sentence making for an entertaining finish. The letter layout was only 6-letters in length so if you weren’t able to come up with the answer from the visual clues, a quick shuffle of the letters would do the trick. Have a marvelous Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

ONNITO – NOTION

PETCID – DEPICT

CARTOON ANSWER: THOMAS EDISON’S MOM WAS  VERY SUPPORTIVE 

OF HIM AND WAS HAPPY TO BE THE – – –

NON   HOR   FET   ON  MIV   EIT  =     MOTHER OF INVENTION

Good Morning, Everyone!             ☎️   HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY   ☎️

🎶 When the evening shadows fall…and the lovely day is through, then with longing I recall the years I spent with you…MAMA, I miss the days when you were near to guide me…MAMA,  those happy days when you were here beside me. Safe in the glow of your love, sent from the heavens above…Nothing can ever replace the warmth of your tender embrace… Oh, MAMA,  until the day that we’re together once more…I’ll live in these memories…Until the day that we’re together once more…🎶

❤️ Mothers are a breed apart…There’s no one can compare
We needed them as children, but the need don’t disappear.
For those of us who’ve lost them, today takes quite a toll,
You’re happy for the others, but your heartache still unfolds.
My MOTIVE here’s not sadness, but that emptiness I bear?
I can go through all the MOTIONs, but the echoes I still hear.
I’ve a NOTION just to let it go, not do a foolish rhyme
But I’m wide awake and you know…You can’t run away from time…
Always.. daily…even HOURLY, my thoughts of her are close,
And I’m not the one of FEWEST words…in fact I’m quite verbose.
So now how do I DEPICT this, this cartoon of Mother’s pride…
When I’m missing my own Mother, and my heartache’s hard to hide?
I’ll just say that it’s quite timely, and the Jumble’s sweet intention…
Isn’t lost on me…It’s nice to see this MOTHER OF INVENTION…❤️

Words. We’re here for Words. And I’m going on record to say that the most beautiful word in any language, is Mother. Period. And today we celebrate all MOTHERS. And maybe David. MOTION and NOTION? Anagrammed to look nothing like one another? I say, Kudos, Sir. But Jeff? The hips? What was your MOTIVE there? A little bit of a broad stroke of that pen, no? And you know I checked. But most images of NANCY EDISON DEPICT her from the waist up only, so I really can’t judge. But since I have such great faith in your artists’ eye…I’ll let it go. It’s the FEWEST of my worries this morning. As for the Thomas Edison-Mothers Day connection? Well….Here’s another broad stroke. I’m just going to tell you all that there’s a ton of stories on line. What’s true, what’s not? A ton of stories. Was MAMA Edison supportive? Of course she was. Was EDISON creative? Of course he was. Was he one of our greatest inventors? Of course he was. Did he probably do more to shape the physical and cultural makeup of our present day civilization? I suppose he did. Did he “INVENT” MOTHER’S DAY? Of course he didn’t! Anna Jarvis did Folks. As I said….A ton of stories on line. Ok…Today, we’re in the childhood home of THOMAS EDISON, which we see also doubles as his workshop/lab. He’s with his MOTHER, and our question asks…What was his MOM happy to be? The MOTHER OF INVENTION! Bravo, David! You’ve CREATED a really good one here!! Ok, eye candy.. Today, the cartoon’s a gem. A plethora of amazing detail! And if I can get past the hips, I’ll do my best to list them for you…On the table: A hammer. A candle encased in a glass holder. An early day megaphone. A paper airplane. A pair of scissors. Crude early day earphones. Two spherical objects that I’m unsure of…one depicting the tiniest of figures running. The other? A speaker perhaps…A drawing of an early telephone…And thread. Phew! SEWing it all up so far?  Masterful. And then we have two framed photos, on a credenza. One of Thomas alone, one of him with whom I’m assuming to be his parents. On the wall, a lamp. MAMA Edison is wearing a necklace. Thomas is wearing a cap and a string tie. The chair is engraved with a flowery design. And there’s a pencil behind Thomas’s ear. There’s just so much here… The solution? There’s Thomas, speaking with his MOTHER through tiny hand held megaphones, connected by a string wiring….He’s calling his MOTHER…❤️💔 So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And to all those celebrating MOTHER’S DAY today…I wish you a wonderful day of Laughter, Love and Happiness! Enjoy! ☎️ 🙋🏻

TUYHO = YOUTH

SBNIO = BISON

KARYEB = BAKERY

TUTWIO = OUTWIT

CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN HER BROTHER TIED HER SHOES TOGETHER, HE WAS BEING A – – –

YOTBNKYOT = “KNOTTY” BOY


Good Saturday morning, Jumble friends! There’s no better way to start the weekend than with the Jumble puzzle. During the week I’m usually in a rush to put up the post before having to focus my attention on something else — but knot today! I took my time with the solve and what a gem of a puzzle it turned out to be.

I don’t recall the last time that I’ve been stumped by the first three clue words so I was both shocked and surprised. OUTWIT was the only word that was immediately visible so I decided to start my solve in reverse. Remembering the “Y” trick allowed me to find BAKERY after a few moments of just staring at the leftover letters. If you’re a first time visitor to this website, please allow me to explain what the “Y” trick is all about. If you find yourself stumped on an anagram that contains a “Y”, chances are it will be the last letter of the word. By placing it at the end of your layout you eliminate a letter which often times is all it takes for the solution to come into view. Next up was BISON and it ended up taking the longest to figure out so it’s my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day. The “Y” trick didn’t work on YOUTH so a few self-jumbles got the job done. With the quartet of clue words complete, it was time for the cartoon.

Today’s panel takes place just outside of a home on a walkway. We see a man attempting to comfort a young girl that is seated on the ground and crying. Reading the dialogue and sentence we discover that the reason for her tears is that her brother tied her shoelaces together and she can’t untie them herself. Dad is furious at his son and instructs him to go inside and reflect upon his actions.

Just look at how sweet and innocent that little girl looks. From the cute flower on her shirt to that tiny tear upon her cheek, Jeff did a wonderful job stirring our emotions and getting us to feel sorry for her. And look at the way he chose to draw her brother. He looks mischievous in that dark colored Punisher t-shirt and hair that partially covers his eyes. Dad is surely going to have his hands full with this sibling rivalry for many years to come.

The letter layout kept the final solution well hidden, but BOY came into view with the letters being so close together. A few mental swirls of the remaining letters brought KNOTTY into view giving us a very satisfying finish. Have a spectacular Saturday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!

DYIDG – GIDDY

LIPUT – TULIP

CETEID – DECEIT

SABBRO – ABSORB

CARTOON ANSWER: HE BLAMED ANOTHER SEA LION, BUT THE SEA LION SAID

IT WAS THE – – –

GY   TU   ET   OR =    “OTTER” GUY 

Good Morning, Everyone!           🐚 ONE OR THE “OTTER”  🐚

🎶 You OTTER be in pictures, you’re wonderful to see, you OTTER be in pictures…Oh what a hit you would be! You OTTER shine as brightly as Jupiter and Mars, you OTTER be in pictures…My star of stars…🎶

🐚 We’re looking at an Otter who’s floating on his back…
Two Sea Lions are still on shore and happiness they lack.
The presence of some urchins that ABSORB into the skin,
Have caused one lion to get stung and he’s blaming his kin…
The other sea lion takes offense and he won’t take the blame,
He claims that he’s not guilty and DECEIT is not his name.
He blames the little otter, now the three show nothing GIDDY,
This may become a brawl of sorts, this guy’s talking quite pithy!
Not flowery, no TULIP talk, we just hear them decry…
“Who did it”? “Well it isn’t me…It’s him…the “OTTER” GUY”! 🐚

Our first two words today are simple enough, but the two 6 letter words may not be that easy to SEA, and cause a little tic. We’ve had them before, but the new anagrams are exceptionally well done. FLOATING over to our cartoon, we find ourselves in Seattle, Washington. We see a body of water, where we find two gray Sea Lions and a brown OTTER. Scattered on the shore, are several Sea Urchins and shells. The Sea Lion on the left, has stepped on one of the Urchins, and is complaining loudly about getting stung. He’s looking for who’s responsible for leaving the Urchins lying around. He’s mad…and I don’t think he’s planning on turning the OTTER cheek! Quick to blame his fellow Sea Lion, he’s met with righteous indignation! Pointing to the little OTTER, FLOATING on his back, the Sea Lion says… “Get OTTER here…You’re being OTTERly ridiculous. It wasn’t me! It was him…the “OTTER” GUY! And there’s our solution, Folks! I love it! The OTTER guy! Good one, David! But may I ask…Are these Brooklyn Sea Lions? ‘Cause I just love the accent! Ok, eye candy. As much as I find these Sea Mammals, OTTERtaining, I’m getting out of the water, and going with the landscape today. The Seattle Space Needle, the Seattle skyline, and Mt Rainier in the background are beautifully detailed in silhouette by Jeff, and I find it all OTTERly beautiful. So, There you have it, Folks, Done. Have a great day, Everyone, I’m OTTER here! 🐚🙋🏻

MUPEL = PLUME

LYLTA = TALLY

RUGIEF = FIGURE

COADRC = ACCORD

CARTOON ANSWER:

HER OLD 10-SPEED WAS WAY BEYOND REPAIR AND WAS AT THE END OF IT’S – – –

LELYFIECC = LIFE CYCLE


Happy Thursday, Jumble players! Today’s clue words were no trouble at all and they reminded me of a Monday morning solve. The only word that needed a second glance was PLUME because at first I thought it might be PUMEL but it didn’t have two M’s. It’s my choice for the most difficult anagram of the day and it was time to switch gears and focus my attention on the cartoon.

Back on Monday we saw a cartoon that featured the Wright brothers and I spoke about how they opened a bicycle rental and repair shop in 1893. In today’s panel we see a more modern bicycle shop where a woman and an employee are having a conversation. By reading the dialogue and sentence we learn that the woman has brought her 10-speed in for repair but the news isn’t what she was hoping to hear. With a confused look on his face, the employee asks the customer what century her beloved bicycle is from. The fact that Jeff chose century instead of decade in the dialogue was a key clue for me while attempting the final solve.

The cartoon had some interesting details hidden within so hopefully you weren’t two tired to spot them. The bicycle was definitely the focus of the cartoon with the broken shifter knobs dangling down from the intricately wrapped handle bars. If you look closely at the seat, you’ll probably be able to see that it has a height adjustment mechanism underneath it! Did you notice the new mountain bike in the background? Just above the front tire would have been a great spot for one of Jeff’s signature “J’s” but today it’s just a squiggly little line. And then I saw the shop name on the wall. Bicycle was spelled BICYLCLE and it appears to be a spelling mistake. It was very obvious to me so I thought that Jeff might have included it for some other reason. I had a thought that it was another anagram so I tried my best to make words out of it with no luck. If you have any thoughts on it, please leave a comment below.

The final solve was no trouble at all with CYCLE jumping right out at me. LIFE was quickly deciphered for the finish and another puzzle was solved. Have a terrific Thursday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

TWESP = SWEPT

FAREW = WAFER

SLUBEH = BUSHEL

EECDTT = DETECT

CARTOON ANSWER:

TO SEE WHERE THE BIGGEST WAVES COULD BE RIDDEN, THEY – – –

SWEFERBUHDET = SURFED THE WEB


Happy Wednesday, Jumble fans! The 5-letter clue words were no trouble at all and were both instantly visible. BUSHEL is definitely an old favorite and was last used on 3/23. Don’t feel bad if you thought it was BLUESH because I’ve also made that error in the past. No matter how many times we see it, it always slows my solve by a few seconds so it’s my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day. Do we have a new clue word in DETECT? I remember DEFECT being used a couple of months ago, but DETECT just doesn’t ring any bells. Either way it was also instantly visible and I made my way to the totally tubular cartoon.

By looking at the panel, my guess for the setting would be a surf shop where we see two men working at a computer station. It looks like they’ve traded office attire for beach attire and for good reason. Just look at that breathtaking view that Jeff added to his piece! What a slice of heaven!!!

By reading the dialogue, sentence, and the wording on the computer screen, we discover that these savvy surfers are using the internet to search for the wildest wave in Waikiki. Although it’s difficult to see in the panel, on the bottom of the computer screen is a wave report which indicates the wave height and swell period. I could go into great detail on how to read the numbers, but let’s suffice it to say that this is crucial information when looking for the “big one”!

I had a very difficult time choosing my favorite detail out of all of the wonderful options that were packed into this piece. The lightning bolt on the surfboard was pretty rad as was the tribal tattoo on the seated surfers arm. My inner-geek told me to choose the website that’s displayed on the top of the computer screen which is DaBigWaves.com. If you’re curious if it’s an actual website, I’ll save you the trouble and tell you that I checked it and it’s a dead link. I guess that’s good news if any of my readers are looking to make a career switch to surf reporting!

The final solution was as simple as could be and I actually blind solved it after reading the dialogue and cartoon sentence. The letter layout was wonderfully cryptic and quite a nice challenge if you weren’t able to figure it out by all of the visual clues provided. I wish everyone a “wicked good” Wednesday and I’ll see you tomorrow! 🤙🏻

DAEIB = ABIDE

UNCOE = OUNCE

DURRED = RUDDER

SPYAMW = SWAMPY

CARTOON ANSWER:

AFTER ASKING THE JUMBLE ARTIST TO HELP HER GET ON “THE PRICE IS RIGHT,” HE – – –

AECERDRWY = DREW CAREY


Happy Tuesday, Jumble friends! We have an excellent puzzle today with a combination of brain teasing clue words as well as a cartoon that is top notch. With just a quick peek at the cartoon, I knew instantly what the answer was going to be. It wasn’t because I’m a Jumble genius, it’s because I’ve actually seen this cartoon before while doing a bit of research on another puzzle. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, so let me break down the clue words for you first.

ABIDE required just a moment of pause before coming into view. The 3-vowels were a small hurdle to contend with but luckily the “A” was the first one that we encounter in the layout. The next word also contained 3-vowels but for one reason or another it instantly came to mind. RUDDER ended up taking a considerable amount of time to work through and is my pick for the most difficult clue word of the day. David did an excellent job of throwing me off track by doubling the R’s in the middle of the anagram when it was actually the D’s that needed to be together to arrive at the solution. That left SWAMPY for the finish which was just as easily deciphered as OUNCE. With all of the clue words wrapped up, it was time for my favorite part of the puzzle, the cartoon!

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you probably recall that I mentioned less than a month ago that Jeff created a t-shirt for his friend who hoped to be on the The Price is Right television game show. Well Jeff’s amazing cartoon worked and his friend Lissa Sears was chosen to play the game! I’m not sure how far she made it so perhaps one of you will be able to fill us in.

What’s interesting about this cartoon is the fact that you actually see Jeff’s full body. Most of the time we see him seated in a chair where his lower half is not visible so it was really cool to see him “full size”. The drawing of Drew Carey was over the top and you can really see the extra effort that Jeff put into his piece. The detail of the wheel was exceptional with each dollar amount clearly visible. The only part of the drawing that had me scratching my head was trying to figure out if Jeff was holding a pencil or a paintbrush. There’s no eraser on the end and no bristles at the tip. Either way it makes no difference and I was content just staring at his work and admiring such a fine masterpiece!

Have a terrific Tuesday, and remember what Bob Barker used to say at the end of every episode: “Help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered.”

ZIOGM = GIZMO

SIHKW = WHISK

NWENIR = WINNER

UGATOE = OUTAGE

CARTOON ANSWER:

BEFORE THEY FULLY UNDERSTOOD FLIGHT, THE WRIGHT BROTHERS COULD OFTEN BE SEEN – – –

GIWIINNTG = WINGING IT


Good morning everyone and happy Monday! Looking back at the clue words from last week, NARYCN, MIWYSH and LMHAYN were the most searched for answers. It’s interesting that all of the words had a “Y” in them and CRANNY & WHIMSY were both given to us on the same day. “DUEL-Y” NOTED was the most searched for cartoon surprise answer making last Friday’s puzzle the most challenging of the week.

This mornings clue words were all old favorites and perfectly suited for a Monday puzzle. OUTAGE did require a couple of extra seconds to work through so it’s my pick for the most difficult anagram of the day. The fact that it had 4 vowels to work with made it difficult to find a starting point but once I found OUT, the rest was no trouble at all.

Moving on to the cartoon, we see two men tinkering away in a workshop of sorts. The man on the left is holding a folded paper airplane while the seated man on the right works on what appears to be a glider wing. Reading the dialogue we discover that the two gentlemen are actually the Wright brothers and they were last featured in a Jumble cartoon exactly 3 months ago today! I remember doing quite a bit of research on them the last time they were in the Jumble so I’ll skip the history lesson today and move straight to the details that Jeff packed into his panel.

Orville is easy to identify in the cartoon by his moustache and Wilbur is the balding gentleman on the right. I thought that Wilbur looked a bit like James Taylor while staring at the piece bringing his hit Fire and Rain to mind. In the back of the room we see a bicycle tire leaning against the wall. Before their aviation milestone they actually opened a bicycle rental and repair shop in 1893. My favorite detail was the poster on the wall just above the tire. In the upper-right corner of the poster it says “FLAP REAL FAST” and depicts a man getting ready to jump off a cliff. The arrows indicate that the winged flyer would soar down and then pull up quickly to land in a standing position. I thought it was funny that Jeff showed the man with his hat still on after the jump!

The final solution was a piece of cake with all of the visual clues in the drawing. The “W” in the letter layout stood out like a sore thumb bringing WING to mind. Crossing out the letters, IT came into view leaving the -ING suffix for the finish. The splendid cartoon was definitely the highlight of today’s puzzle and I can’t wait to see what David and Jeff have in store for us this week. Have a marvelous Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

END   NI   II   GOT   HOR   CIN  =.   “HEIR” CONDITIONING

Good Morning, Everyone!      🔌🎚HOW COOL IS THIS? 🎚🔌

🎶 They got an HEIR CONDITIONER for when I’m hot…A RADIATOR for when I’m not…Two big chairs sittin’ side by side, with a Holy bible and a TV guide…TV guide, TV guide, great God o’ mighty…It’s a TV guide….🎶

🔌🎚We just got in from a long day, the parties back to back…
The Derby and the Cinco crowds, I need to hit the sack.
If I eat just one more NIBBLE, I think that I may burst…
And I need to get out of these heels, cause man, do my calves hurt.
The Air Condition’s blasting, and I’ve GOTTEN quite a chill…
So I’m opening the windows, let the fresh air the rooms fill.
Then I see the puzzle for today, IRONIC comes to mind.
‘Cause air condition is the theme that we are going to find!
Or is the word coincidence? I blur them quite a lot,
Sometimes my friend may HOLLER that what I call one is not.
But I liken it to gambling, a CASINO game of dice…
Using one word when the other is the one that would suffice…
Hmm…Before I lose my train of thought, and God knows where that ends
I better do this write up..(And I’m squeezing in OFFEND)…
Let’s see what’s with our family and the business that’s transitioning…
And concentrate on dealing with today’s theme “HEIR” CONDITIONING! 🎚🔌

Early Sunday morning, and I’m looking at today’s words. Old favorites, and pretty easy, BREEZY, right? Or did you think you’d NOT GET GOTTEN? We’re you put OFF by OFFEND? What about CASINO? Now if I had to put my money on the ODD word for today, that would be the one I’d BET on…But you know what really BLEW me away about today’s words? The onslaught of double consonants! Two “F”s in OFFEND, two “B”s in NIBBLE. two “T”s in GOTTEN, and two “L”s in HOLLER! And in each word, they go together! Now how COOL is that? I don’t believe we’ve ever seen this before! I mean I wouldn’t take a VOW..EL, maybe I would! But it is quite a coincidence, right? Anyway…Let’s not put this OFF any longer, and just RUN over to our cartoon. Today Jeff is showing us a Father, Mr. JOHNSON, with his son, JR, and his daughter, FRIA, at their place of BUSINESS. Looking CLOSEly, we see their names are written on their name tags. FRIA! It means cold! You PLUGGED a real good one in there, Jeff! Well done! The cartoon shows that Mr. JOHNSON has DRAFTed  a new sign announcing that he’s formed a new BUSINESS: JOHNSON FAMILY HEATING & COOLING. By the happy looks on everyone’s faces, you can almost feel the TEMPERATURE changing in the room. You get that WARM fuzzy feeling…Nice to see him create a LEGACY for his kids….Makes you a little MISTy eyed, doesn’t it? Yea, gives you CHILLS! Anyway, he’s shown HEIR with his two HEIRS. Cute. We can see JR, screwdriver in hand, announcing that he’s just fixed the HEATING/COOLING unit in the picture. He NAILed it too! His Father taught him well… And our question GOES ON to ask…what would you call what Mr. JOHNSON is giving his kids? …”HEIR” CONDITIONING! Well flip the switch, there’ll be no COOLING our heels with this one! We got our solution! Good one, David! That word “conditioning” just FLUE right off the page! Ok so, with all our DUCTS now in a row…let’s move on to the eye candy…I like Mr. JOHNSON’S mustache, but you don’t have to be a SEER to know we’ve seen too many mustaches already. I like the little name plate on the HVAC unit...but I don’t think I’ll put it into the SCRIPT…There’s the two symbols on the sign: The sun, and the winter branches of a tree…Definitely RAISES the bar, and of course there’s JR’s screwdriver, but mentioning it again might be a little TOOL much..So, I guess that leaves the coil wiring and what I think is an adapter or a capacitor on the floor…I’ll go with those. Not that I’m a big FAN, but mostly because I need to WRAP this up…So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And be COOL..🎚🔌🙋🏻
