CKCNIHEABWDRSHE = WRENCHED HIS BACK 

Good Morning, Everybody!        🔧 A GUT WRENCHING EXPERIENCE..🔧

🎶The MECHANIC raised up from under my hood…He shook his head and said, “This ain’t good. Your timin’ BELT’S done, shrunk one size too small, those SPARK PLUG  wires are a little too long. And your main prodsponder’s nearly gone. Your INJECTOR  ports are stripped and that ain’t all. The torque converter’s runnin’ low on torque, and that water PUMP’S nearly down a quart. But we caught it all in time so you’re in luck”. He said, “I’ve got the time and I’ve got the PARTS, just give me the word and I’m ready to start…I think we can bring her in for eight hundred bucks….🎶

🔧🔩 I think everybody’s COUSIN at one time or another
Has been “taken for a ride” by an in-laws sister’s brother
Or a SHREWD friend of a friend who knew,
A guy to do that job for you.
So you really thought it over…it was EITHER him or that place
Where that CHUNKY guy worked with all the grease on his face
And they both sounded ABRUPT when they were talkin’ that talk
And you wondered “Take a POWDER…Should I just turn and walk”?
But the price that he was quoting didn’t really sound that bad,
So you figured “What the heck, I don’t think that I’ll be had…”
So you told him go ahead, and fix the pinions and the rack…
Only half way through, wouldn’t you know?…

The mechanic WRENCHED HIS BACK! 🔩🔧

I sort of TOOK IN the entire puzzle at one time this morning. Jeff has us in an AUTO REPAIR SHOP, with two MECHANICS, one male, one female. The male MECHANIC AUTOmatically caught my eye, because it was obvious that he hurt his back. And then with the WRENCH in his hand, there wasn’t far to TRAVEL to get the solution. WRENCHED HIS BACK. Good one, David. That LIFTed my spirits a little. I’ve been fighting some kind of BUG for two days, and I’m so PLUGged up, that it hurts just to think. I needed the BRAKE, and my BODY needs rest…Anyway, today’s words didn’t cause any PROBLEMS, I think they’re all RETURNing favorites. Shrewd, Either, Abrupt and Powder were easily TREAD. Chunky and Cousin, I was able to GRAB onto quickly also, but they may be new. Nothing to STUMBLE over today. So I went looking for the eye candy. My head feels like it’s in a VACUUM, so my eyes can’t really WANDER that much. But, besides the UNDERCARRIAGE that’s visible, and the GREASE rags hanging from the Mechanic’s pockets, there’s not much at PLAY here. And I’m so cold, that I’m STARTing to SHIMMY and SHAKE. I wish I had one of those old fashioned RADIATORS in my house, like we had when I was a kid. Boy, you could CRANK up the THERMOSTAT, PULL a chair up next to it, and take that CHILL right out of you. Only problem with them, if I RECALL, is that INTERMITTENTly, there could be some FLOODING, if the WATER BLOCKed up and SURGEd out. But, we still did it without HESITATION. You sort of knew when it might happen anyway, because you’d hear the KNOCKING in the pipes…Wow, sorry…Did I just go way OFF TRACK! The eye candy…on the floor, to the REAR right of the LIFT, there’s a tiny SPARK PLUG. I’m RUNNING with that. So, There you have it, Folks. Done! I apologize for being such a DRAG today, and I hope this whole write up didn’t BACKFIRE.  Have a great day, Everyone! And I’ll leave you with this..It’s Sunday.

Go out there and shout OIL- lelujah! 🔩🔧🙋🏻

CARTOON ANSWER:

THE VET THAT SPECIALIZED IN TREATING WATERFOWL HAD A – – –

AEWIRANGAD = “WADING” AREA


Good morning everyone and happy Monday! Last week we saw some very easy puzzles (with the exception of Saturday’s “LOW-CATION” brain teaser). Waking up and finding a Monday puzzle with the answer in quotes had me excited as I really enjoy a very punny surprise answer.

All of today’s clue words were old favorites with EAGLE giving me a few extra seconds of hesitation. I thought it was ALGAE at first and couldn’t get that word out of my mind. Coincidentally, my page-a-day Jumble desk calendar also had EAGLE as an anagram in the first clue word position and it was jumbled as LEEGA. If you’re a sports fan, the Philadelphia Eagles delivered a crushing defeat to the Vikings yesterday so everything seems to be coming up EAGLEs! I wouldn’t make a Super Bowl bet off of all of this but it does give you something to think about.

Moving on to the cartoon, I attempted a blind solve of the answer but came up empty handed. Looking at the cartoon, we see a nurse in the background with a stethoscope around her neck and she’s glancing at a clipboard. Jeff had her wearing crocs footwear which was very interesting because as we all know that crocodiles and birds aren’t the best of friends.

Reading the dialogue, the nurse says “Donald, the doctor will see you now”. Looking back at the cartoon, we see a small duck in a pool wearing a sailors cap similar to the one that Donald Duck always wears. Nice touch, Jeff! Another great detail was the bird (egret?) that had a cast or bandage on its leg. The woman is telling the patient to be patient which was an excellent play on the word and made me quack up a bit!

The letter layout for the solve was very cryptic and kept the answer well hidden. Having spent so much time looking at all of the detail in Jeff’s drawing, the answer came immediately making this puzzle an instant finish. Have a marvelous Monday, my friends, and I’ll see you tomorrow.
