CONOPU – COUPON

CARTOON ANSWER: TO GET THE SYMPHONY READY FOR ITS BIG PERFORMANCE, IT WOULD TAKE A- –

DOT EF CRE TER FO CN = “CONCERT-ED” EFFORT

Good Morning, Everyone!       🎼 I HEAR A SYMPHONY 🎼

🎶Whenever you’re near, I hear a SYMPHONY each time you speak to me
I hear a tender RHAPSODY of love, love….Baby, Baby, as you stand up holding me…Whispering how much you care,…A thousand VIOLINS fill the air now. Baby, Baby, don’t let this moment end…Keep standing close to me, Oo so close to me, Baby, Baby…I hear A SYMPHONY, a tender MELODY…Ah it goes on and on and on and on now…🎶 “ I Hear a Symphony” The Supremes 1966

🎼 I think we should DENOTE here, that pressure’s surely on,
Time has ACCRUEd and these musicians wait on that Baton…
A FORMAL Concert being planned, no COUPON holding two-fer
This is the one where gold and silver replaces the PEWTER
Each minute proves quite USEFUL, ‘cause they’ll come from every port…
True Patrons of the Arts to hear this “CONCERT-ED” EFFORT! 🎼

With the phrase being such a familiar one, that I’m atTUNEd to, today’s puzzle solution leapt right off the PAGE…I then looked at our words, and being all Sweet Repeats there was no chance of falling FLAT…So, on to our cartoon. Today we find ourselves at a BAND SHELL, where a SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA is seen practicing…But there’s been a MAJOR development…Some MINOR setbacks had occurred, and now the group must REED faster, and practice without a REST. Every MINUET is crucial…and they really need to be SHARP. Knowing that they’ll be a lot of SAX and VIOLINS involved, it’s only NATURAL that the CONDUCTOR feels that he’s in TREBLE. But he shouldn’t let it get him DOWN. As long as they all “pull together” and give it a “CONCERT-ED” EFFORT, this won’t be too hot to HANDEL at all! BOOM! Great pun, David! You always hit the right NOTE!

Ok, eye candy…Way in the BACH, the silhouetted figures? There’s two musicians…One holding what appears to be the STICK to play a WOOD BOX, and the other holding CYMBALS. I just got a little TRILL out of them….So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a great day, Everyone…And why not make a LISZT today…and get out there and go for BAROQUE! 🎼🙋🏻

TREESO – STEREO

CARTOON ANSWER: AFTER THE OUTFIELDER ENDED THE 15-INNING GAME, HE WAS READY TO – – –

ACE MZ SCH STO = CATCH SOME Z’S

Good Morning, Everyone!            ⚾️PLAY BALL!⚾️

🎶Got a beat-up glove, a homemade bat, and brand-new pair of shoes..You know I think it’s time to give this game a ride…Just to hit the ball and touch ’em all, a moment in the sun..It’s gone and you can tell that one goodbye!
Oh, put me in, Coach…I’m ready to play – today…Put me in, Coach..I’m ready to play- today…Look at me, I can be Centerfield..🎶 “Centerfield” –  John Fogerty 1985

⚾️The Boys of Summer start a game with hopes that they’ll do well

But also they are hoping that they won’t hear midnight’s bell…

Under MAIZE like colored flood lights they play a prime time game

And hope their CACHE of strength and will not go down  in flames…

They hear the shouts in STEREO while playing the outfield…

They run around for the long balls, their gloves acting like shields.

A bobbled ball can bring the STENCH of fans showing disdain…

And fans approval is a thing a player wants to gain…

So carefully they wait it out, and always aim to please…

But after 15 innings? How they long to CATCH SOME Z’S! ⚾️

So…I blinked at CACHE, and STEREO did not come through loud and clear! I stared at it until I HEARD the little voice in my head say “STEREO” in very MONOTONES! .Our cartoon…🎶Take me out to the ballgame…take me out to the crowd…🎶…And our Jumble Boys have done just that for us today! We see two OUTFIELDERS, on a BALL FIELD,  playing for the JUMBLE TEAM. And according to the old clock on the Scoreboard, it’s 1 AM! 1AM! No ONE, and I mean NO ONE wants to be at the BALL PARK at 1 AM! We see that the game went into EXTRA INNINGS, 6 extra to be exact, and the OUTFIELDERS’ CATCH finally ended the game. We see him saying how TIRED he is. Can you imagine how EXHAUSTED they all must be? So, with our question asking what was he ready to do? CATCH SOME Z’S! Now how cute is that? 💤💤’s! Good one, David!

So, eye candy…FIRST we have the ad for Jumble.com on the Scoreboard, SECOND, there’s the “J’s” on the players Jerseys and caps, THIRD…we see some silhouetted fans cheering. Nice touches, but not FAN FAVORITES. We see the 410 MARK on the back wall…but that’s a LONG SHOT...And  there are the MOON and STARS illuminating the night sky, but I’m not taking a SHINE  to it….So. you want to know what Jeff hit it OUT OF THE PARK with today? The OUTFIELDER’S sporting a FIVE  O‘CLOCK SHADOW! Already!!…Now that’s a HOME RUN! So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! Get OUT there and SWING for the FENCES! ⚾️🎶

SYLOGS – GLOSSY

ANNETT – TENANT

CARTOON ANSWER: THE SHADY PHARMACEUTICAL EXECUTIVE’S PROFITS WERE – – – 

EIT   GLI   GLOS   TNAN  =   ILL-GOTTEN GAINS

Good Morning, Everyone!         💊 A BITTER PILL TO SWALLOW 💊

🎶 Don’t go to bed, with no PRICE ON YOUR HEAD no, no (Don’t do it), no, no…
Don’t do the CRIME, if you can’t do the time (Don’t do it)…Keep your eye on the sparrow when the going gets narrow…(Don’t do it) Don’t do it. Don’t roll the dice if you can’t PAY THE PRICE, no, no (Don’t do it), don’t do it…Don’t run your feet down no dead end street, no, no (Don’t do it)…Just keep your eye on the sparrow when the going gets narrow….(Don’t do it) Don’t do it…🎶 “Keep Your Eye On The Sparrow”-Baretta’s Theme – Sammy Davis, Jr. 1976 

💊 This subject’s sad and serious, it’s happened in “real life”
It’s caused heartache and hardship, a story full of strife…
You wonder how the DEITY will deal with such a man,
Devoid of GLINT but GLOSSY-prone to get all that he can.
A TENANT of the prisons, he now is serving time…
You wonder if the sentence really serves to fit the crime.
HIs greed and smug indifference has caused a lot of pain,
And now he gets no pleasure from what was ILL-GOTTEN GAINS 💊

So, we’ve made it through another week of Jumble Jewels. And it looks like we have another new word today, in DEITY. Our others? All Sweet Repeats, with TENANT, having appeared here as recently as June 13th. But with its’ double-double consonant offering, it may still be the stumper of the day…although DEITY has a good chance to hold that HIGHER POWER. Overall, a good way to close out our WORD WEEK..So, on to our solution. Today’s cartoon deals with a subject matter a lot more serious than what we’re used to. Having been headline news in the recent past, we’re brought into a COURTROOM, where the trial of the PHARMA BRO is taking place. Jeff’s likeness of him is uncanny. He’s somehow managed to capture the man’s arrogant look overshadowed by eyes devoid of any sense of humanity. I’m not even going to mention his name. You, our dear readers are free to look up “THE MOST HATED MAN IN AMERICA” should you care to. Bottom line here is that we’re WITNESSing a trial of this man, who MANAGED to GAIN a ton of MONEY and it was mostly GOTTEN because there were people ILL with AIDS, who needed the MEDICATIONS that his company provided…and he RAISED the PRICES drastically…Mostly…Because if that wasn’t enough, he also DOCTORED the books, and smugly TROLLed the Internet after it. And we see that the dialogue quotes him as saying he needed a new Yacht…The word INSOUCIANT may have been COINed just for him…So, with our question asking what his PROFITS were? They were ILLGOTTEN GAINS. Good one, David. Right on the MONEY

And eye candy? The looks of pure disgust on the faces of the JURY tells it all…There’s nothing sweet about this today, it’s just a BITTER PILL to swallow. So, There you have it, Folks, Done…Have a great day, Everyone…And I’ll leave you with this old proverb…”GREEDY eaters dig their graves with their teeth”. Chew on that, PHARMA BRO…💊🙋🏻

CARTOON ANSWER:  HE LONGED TO BE A BOUNTY HUNTER AND PLANNED TO – –

MEE   HIR   ASRD   USUP   =   PURSUE HIS DREAM 

Good Morning, Everyone!       🏃🏻🔫 CHASE, RATTLE AND ROLL 🔫🏃🏻

🎶There’s fear and darkness all around you…The criminals are on the run.
No use in hiding in the dark, I’ll hunt you down…’Cause I’m the dog….I’m the dog…The big bad dog…THE BOUNTY HUNTER…🎶 “Dog, The Bounty Hunter” – Ozzy Osbourne 2005

🏃🏻🔫 A Bounty Hunter’s job involves the chase to get the money,
The man who is a HIKER to these guys is far from funny…
Run from the law? No it won’t do – Jump bail? It’s quite ABSURD,
They’ll PUSHUP every obstacle…by money they are spurred…
A flair for the dramatic, an EMCEE of a kind…
They can be quite flamboyant, once they have someone to find.
These criminals who are at large, they think they have a scheme?
The Bounty Hunter’s chase is on – Watch him PURSUE HIS DREAM…🔫🏃🏻

And…So It begins…Thursday, WORSE-day? And here we were doing so well, right? RUNNING along, easy, breezy, maybe a tic or two…And then, today? A few words to CAPTURE our attention! We have three Sweet Repeats, and another new word in PUSHUP. RECORD breaking in my opinion. So many new words. And how funny is it that the Auto-Correct gave me a RUN FOR MY MONEY trying to type it? It kept hyphenating the word. PUSH-UP! So, I Googled it…and lo and beHOLD, there it was, both ways. And being one of those Combination words that so many of us try to AVOID, I’m choosing it as the word that’s BOUNTY give us some grief today! And BY THE WAY, yesterday’s JIGSAW? It was also a new addition to the Jumble Vocabulary, which if my figures are correct, now brings our total to 3,217 words. Anyway, enough of this wordplay…Let’s TACKLE our solution…Today, Jeff’s brought us to the office of the “GOTCHA BOUNTY HUNTERS“. We see our Man of the COWER, who I think I’ll call PUP, shown interviewing a new recruit, SKIP, who’s voicing his life-long DREAM to PURSUE criminals, and become a BOUNTY HUNTER. PUP is obviously very TAKEN IN by the guy, so he hires him right on the spot. I mean let’s face it, anyone with this kind of enthusiasm, you can’t let GET AWAY, am I right? So with our question asking what SKIP’S planning to do? PURSUE HIS DREAM! Good one, David! Take ARREST after this one…you’ve EARNED IT!

OK, eye candy…We have a few angles to PURSUE today…There’s the WANTED POSTERS on the wall. Two men: David, on the right, and perhaps Jeff at left? Looks like him, but it could be a case of MISTAKEN IDENTITY. SKIP’S shirt is emblazoned with a Star, but that remains to be SEEN…We’ve got PUP, outfitted with those Spiked HANDCUFFS you may have seen AROUND. Oh, it’s called ARREST cuff? Sorry, my bad. He’s also sporting a hanging earring, HOLDING a Wanted Poster, and wearing an odd pair of boots…TRACKING boots perhaps…But what really CAUGHT my eye this morning? PUP’S TATTOO…It’s Monopoly’s UNCLE MONEYBAGS, in character as JAKE THE JAILBIRD, being dragged off TO JAIL, by the truncheon-wielding OFFICER MALLORY! Now what are the CHANCEs of that? Way TO GO, Jeff! You’re a real CARD! And I’d say you COLLECT major Kudos for this one! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! GET OUT there and CHASE your DREAMS🔫🏃🏻🙋🏻

GJWIAS – JIGSAW

CARTOON ANSWER: THE INVENTOR OF THE SADDLE HAD THE  – – – 

ER   IE   DD   IA   =   “RIDE” IDEA 

Good Morning, Everyone!      🐎 Now That Was Using HORSE SENSE! 🐎

🎶 MUSTANG Sally, think you better slow your MUSTANG down…MUSTANG Sally, think you better slow your MUSTANG down…You been running all over the town now…Oh! I guess I’ll have to put your flat feet on the ground…All you want to do is RIDE around Sally, RIDE, Sally, RIDE…All you want to do is RIDE around Sally, RIDE, Sally, RIDE…All you want to do is RIDE around Sally, RIDE, Sally, RIDE…🎶 “Mustang Sally” – Wilson Pickett 1966 

🐎 Way back in the 4th Century, a man, a horse a PADDLE,
A thought, perhaps a LINER ‘tween the man and horse…a Saddle?
A man sat in the FOYER of his home, he was Sarmation,
With JIGSAW-like precision, he worked with determination…
He looked for balance, comfort too…a hide his horse could wear…
The Saddle was invented and voilà, the “RIDE” IDEA! 🐎

With the exception of JIGSAW, today’s words are Sweet Repeats. Unable to find JIGSAW in the files, if it does prove to be new, it looks like we may be BREAKing some sort of record with so many new words in such a short period of time. Yesterday’s SNAZZY was a first as suspected, so it looks like our Jumble FOALcabulary is  just FOAL of new words! But did anything BREAK my STRIDE this morning? NEIGH, NEIGH…it was an easy, breezy RIDE right through…So, ok, our cartoon. Today, we find ourselves in what I believe to be the year 365 AD, among so COLT SARMATIONS. I don’t think I’ve ever HERD of them before, but HAY, there’s a whole lot I STALL don’t know after all these STEERS…We see three men, one astRIDE a HORSE, and they’re discussing the invention of the SADDLE. One man is asking how the other came up with the IDEA, and he’s like..”.CUD you believe I was just TROJAN some thoughts around in my head, and there it was? I figured why should we always be sitting up here FRIESIAN? This SADDLE will keep us warm in the winter, and in the summer? No SWEAT, it’ll work well then too”! And then a third man is HERD CHAIRing him ON…So, in answer to what the INVENTOR had? He had a great solution! He had the “RIDE” IDEA! HIP-HIP HOORAY! I’m HORSE from CHAIRing so loudly! Really good one David…You just keep surPASTUREing yourself every day!

Ok, eye candy…There’s a HORSE alone in the background…Meh, SOLE what…I like the ancient facial HAIR, but I’ll BRUSH PAST it. The hats are nice, but they don’t look very STABLE…Let’s just go with that eye-rolling look on the HORSE’S face…That’s a pretty pRUMINANT glance…I guess the whole IDEA JOUST isn’t SITTING so well with him, huh?..So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And don’t settle for MAREly getting by today…Get out there and ROAN around…It’ll beHOOVE you…you’ll see…🐎🙋🏻

Good Morning, Everyone!           🚦DRIVEN TO DISTRACTION? 🚦

🎶 Can you take me to the store, then the bank?…I’ve got five dollars we can put in the tank…I’ve got a court date coming this June…I’ll be DRIVING soon…Passenger side, passenger side, I don’t like riding on the passenger side…I don’t like riding on the passenger side…🎶 “Passenger Side – Wilco 1995

🚦 A young boy with a license, a story old as time…
The road he travels getting there not always so sublime,
He wants to be behind the wheel, he’s positivity smitten,
He’s thinking what he’ll name his car, perhaps it might be KITTEN.
But SOUPY thoughts had filled his mind, confusion blocked his view…
He passed some cars, not a smart move, the act strictly taboo.
His Mother stands there waiting, she senses something’s wrong
I’m now going to use this line to get rid of that PRONG
No SNAZZY car for our boy here…once more he will bemoan,
And maybe next time he’ll stay clear of the NO PASSING ZONE! 🚦

Just the second day in, and we may already have another new word with SNAZZY. But our three others, Sweet Repeats, caused no TIE-UP at all. So, on to our CARtoon: Today Jeff places us at the LICENSE BUREAU. We see a young teen, bemoaning the fact that he’s once again failed his ROAD TEST. We see the TEST Examiner, bemoaning the fact that he was possibly DRIVEN to drink, and we see the teens’ Mom, bemoaning the fact that she’ll still be STUCK chauffeuring him around. Mom’s thoughts…”Gimme a BRAKE“! The Examiner’s thoughts, “I’m EXHAUSTED“! The teen’s thoughts, “I didn’t know…The SUSPENSION was killing me”. With the dialogue telling us that he went around cars in error, and our question stating his FAILURE…The solution to this TEST is…He was in a ...NO PASSING ZONE!…BEEP! BEEP! Hand us the KEYS, Dave’s given us the GREEN LIGHT! Good one, David! You’ve DRIVEN it home!

Ok, eye candy…Hmm…The ROAD’S pretty CLEAR this morning…Let’s just go with the Examiners’ CLIP BOARD…It reads, “FAIL“…and we’ll STOP right there…So, There you have it, Folks. Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And remember…Don’t PASS on the RIGHT…You may find yourself LEFT BEHIND! 🚦🙋🏻

Good Morning, Everyone!           💪🏻 BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP? 💪🏻

🎶 Why do you BUILD me up (BUILD me up) Buttercup, Baby, Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around….And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, Baby, when you say you will (say you will) but I love you still…I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin’, you know that I have from the start…So BUILD me up (BUILD me up) Buttercup, don’t break my heart..🎶 – “Build Me Up Buttercup” -The Foundations – 1968 

💪🏻 A man upon a ladder…they’re thinking stud it seems
A Pergola is going up…but they’re not thinking beams…
They’ve come outside to watch him, you think to GAUGE his work?
But au contraire what they’re thinking is…”Wonder if he twerks”?
A BALLAD’s playing softly, as they stare mesmerized,
A mumbo GUMBO mix of thoughts are showing in their eyes…
The Pergola will help ADJOIN the outside with the in,
But right now all they’re thinking is perhaps adjoining him?
Here’s hoping that the work gets done ’cause fantasies fulfilled?
Might not be good for business, Girls…despite that real GOOD BUILD! 💪🏻

A brand new week, a brand new group of words to WORK with. All Sweet Repeats, and WOOD you believe we’ve seen GAUGE as recently as June 12th? Now who PLANned that? Hmm..So, on the LEVEL? I don’t think we could call our words today totally easy, breezy, but I will say that the anagrams are really GOOD. The one I blinked at? ADJOIN…Our cartoon: Today we find ourselves in a backyard watching a CARPENTER put up a Pergola. Perched upon a LADDER, he seems oblivious to the admiring glances that he’s getting from the HOME owner and her friend. Our ladies are a little agog over his CHISELED jaw among other things, and they’re not ASHamed to show it…Or say it. I mean, he does have quite a BUILD…Those arms, that chest…Yes, he is rather graciously enDOWELed…And he does look as GOOD as the WORK he’s doing…Let’s FACE it…he’s JOIST a STUD…So our ladies can’t help but notice his GOOD BUILD! Well that HAMMERed it HOME now, didn’t it? I guess David SAW AXEactlwhat our ladies did!

Ok, eye candy…I like the CIRCULAR SAW on the ground, but I could get aROUND it. And the PLANKS of WOOD?…Too PLANE. The NAILS in our CARPENTER’S mouth? I guess there’re AWL right, but a little BORINGLOOKSCREW am I kidding? ? I’d be MALLETjusted to KNOT admit the obvious…The eye candy? It’s definitely HIM“, she SHED! So, There you have it BOLTS, Done! Have a great day, Everyone!…And a little adVISE? …Don’t go AXEing for trouble…Hire a CARPENTER who’s KNOT a TOOL! 💪🏻🙋🏻

FYI: Good Morning, Everyone! I think I’ll put this out there…
My struggling-actor Hoosier friend Chip called me last night. We usually speak every morning before the sun comes up, but on Sundays he likes to sleep. Or he’s MIA…Either way, I didn’t get to speak with him until late last night. And he called to voice his disappointment in me! Yes, that’s how he phrased it…”Disappointment”! He does has a flair for the dramatic..Obviously not that great a flair…Hence the “struggling” actor part! 😂 (Payback, Chip)! Anyway…Yesterday’s puzzle…The Tower. Encased in scaffolding at the bottom..Shows right there in the cartoon. And I missed it completely. The Tower has been under construction since August of last year, and will be until 2021. So, my musings about the couple possibly being David and Claire? Uh…obviously not. My theory about Throw-Back Sunday? Uh…obviously not. My eagle eye? …According to Chip? Definitely not!! 😂  I just didn’t see it…And ENCASE you’re reading this Chip? A public Kudos for you, my little Hoosier Honey!

ATA  IM  NTE   GIC   BTR   ITO  =   BIG-TIME ATTRACTION

Good Morning, Everyone!        🇬🇧 THAT VACATION RELATION! 🇬🇧

🎶 TIME after TIME, I tell myself that I’m, so lucky to be loving you..So lucky to be the one you run to see In the evening, when the day is through…And TIME after TIME you’ll hear me say that I’m, so lucky to be loving you…🎶  “Time After Time” Frank Sinatra – 1947 

🇬🇧 Vacations are a wonder, we visit far and wide
And once we become tourists, enthusiasm bides…
We get caught up in all the hype, which sometimes can IMPEDE
Itineraries that we’ve made…Why BOTHER? Comes the creed…
We TIPTOE through some places, at others we get loud,
The only GLITCH is knowing which is which among the crowds.
The romance of some places makes us NESTLE and we hug,
While others sometimes let us down, and we just give a shrug…
But bottom line we smile and pose and give ACTUAL reaction…
So some pics will be blah at best, and some BIG-TIME ATTRACTION! 🇬🇧

Considering we’re dealing with all six letter words, I think David’s gone pretty easy on us today. Except for a slight STRETCH at TIPTOE, one of those dreaded-by-some compound words, the rest were easily recognizable. So, without further ado…Our cartoon. Today, for the fourth time in recent Jumble history, we find ourselves in LONDON. We visited here in May, and in August and September of last year. Someone is fond of visiting ‘CROSS the Pond! We see a group of TOWERists, most notably, a young couple, that looks vaguely familiar. If I were to speculate, I’d say it might be DAVID and his lovely wife, CLAIRE. IF I were to speculate, I said. I mean I know the woman’s wearing a Michigan sweatshirt, and Claire received her education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, but then again, the man has HAIR, and is wearing an iconic Rolling Stones “Tongue and Lip” T-Shirt, from 1969.  And he’s no Mick Jagger…if you catch my drift!  So, could this possibly be a Throw-Back Sunday? Have we gone back in TIME? Hmm. Anyway, the lovely couple are all excited to be visiting ELIZABETH TOWER, home of the famous CLOCK, and BIG BEN, it’s BELL. Obviously, it’s a BIG deal to them. And we can see that they’re having a great TIME. So, in answer to our question..the TOWER was a ..BIGTIME ATTRACTION! Ding! Ding! We have a winner! Good one, David! We can always deBENd on you!

Ok, eye candy…Yes..I know there were no iPhones back then…But maybe Jeff just threw a Monkey SPANNER into the mix…it’s possible, no? Ok, let’s just make it simple then, and go with the LONDON LANDMARK itself. Let’s FACE it, it is a TOWERing presence! So, There you have it, BLOKES! LON DONE! Have a great day, Everyone…Enjoy your vacations! And don’t ever let TIME pass you by! 🇬🇧🙋🏻

I’ll stand on the BOW, feel the WAVES come crashing, come crashing down down down, on me..And you say, be still my love, open up your heart…let the light shine in…But don’t you understand…I already have a plan… I’m waiting for my real life to begin…🎶 “Waiting For My Real Life To Begin”- Colin Hay 1994

☠ Piracy upon the seas, is what we’re seeing here,
A ship and men all full of GRIME with ratty looking beards…
Ubiquitous the HOLLOW leg we cannot tell for sure,
The captains’ legs are hidden, but it’s usually de rigueur…                                               Are they back from a SAFARI, are they carrying hides and skins?
Have they taken every LASSO and tied up kit and kin?
Is there Mutiny on the Bounty…are we seeing a Flim Flam?
Do you think I’m glad to finish this? You can bet that I “SHORE”AM!

After a week of having a considerably easy go of it, with the exception of y’days solution THOROUGHLY stumping a few; and seeing 6 new words, (Baboon wasn’t), we come to Saturday, which can SAIL either way. Our words are masterfully anagrammed today, but still easily solved..Why? CORSAIR Sweet Repeats, that’s why! And our answer is for SHORE a gift, despite the”Quotation Trepidation” it causes some readers. So let’s SAIL over to our cartoon, and see what hints we can acCREW! Finding ourselves out on the HIGH SEAS, we’re aboard a PIRATE SHIP that’s coming within sight of LAND. We know this, because up atop the CROW’S NEST, a MATE is yelling...”LAND HO“. The Captain, one hand on the wheel, is HOOKED up in a conversation with a barefoot SHIP MATE, who’s seen saying that the Captain must be happy for SHORE to see LAND. Behind them, we see two more MATES, who seem ready for an ARRRgument. Wielding a knife and a CUTLASS, they seem ready to attack. To CUT MORE, perhaps? Do you think there may be a MUTINY aRRRising? Right before our very AYES? WOODEN that be something? And could that be the TREASON that the Captain is saying…”I “SHORE” AM”? Well, SHIVER ME TIMBERS, we got our solve! Good job, David! ARRREN’T you the clever one!

Ok, AYE candy? I like the Captain’s HOOK, but that’s not it..Something seems aMISS, and yet I can’t put my FINGER on it…And there’s that FIRST MATE not DECKed out with socks, but that’s BAREly it either…So, I’m going to go with the oddest thing I SEA…There’s a member of the CREW standing behind the two MENacing Mates, who’s looking up at the CROW’S NEST, and yelling..”WAIT“! Wait for what? What most of us wait for…Our SHIP to come in?? I don’t know…I’m just drawing a PLANK…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And remember…When at SEA, always carry a bar of SOAP…You know, just in case you need to WASH ASHORE!☠🙋🏻

And then she pulled out all the stops with details and much more…
Convincing DEPUTY members assigned to work it out,
The WHARF, the bridge…It’s all considered in this brand new route.
Her company’s named BABOON, a boon it proved to be,
The money spent she let them know…invested quite wisely…
And bottom line she covered all the how, the what, the where
And now they had it all planned out..the brand new “THOROUGH-FARE”! 🚙

After having two new words y’day, SALSA and MINING, two on Wednesday, and another two Tuesday, I didn’t think there could be another today…But I’ll be a monkey’s uncle! We may just have hit PAY dirt again, with BABOON! Six already for this one week! And if today? 7? It’s a LANDslide! Can this be a record? The Word Absurd? David? Jeff? Anybody? WHEEL, just the same…I do think that BABOON may be the word to DRIVE us all a little BANANAS today. Ok, our CARtoon. This morning, Jeff’s placed us at a boardroom meeting, perhaps in Shelbyville, Indiana. We see a woman, a representative of BA-BOON DESIGN standing before an easel, explaining how the money generated from the new TOLL BOOTHS will cover the costs DRIVEN up by the city of Shelbyville’s new planning. She’s a very meticulous person, and has THOROUGHLY worked out all the details. And even though no one likes paying TOLLS, it’s only FARE that a portion of the costs be passed on to the public. The two DEPUTY city planners, are very impressed, and appreciate how it’s all MAPPED out. So when our question asks what her explanation was…It was a “THOROUGH-FARE“! BEEP BEEP! We have our solution! Good one, David! You’ve DRIVEN it home!

Ok, eye candy…The MAP on the table is CONGESTED with detail. Truly the Minute Absolute Jeff is known for. I’m able to make out some of it, and I’ll expLANE as much as I can…I see STREET TYPE, INTERSTATE, U S HIGHWAY, NEW HIGHWAY, CORRIDOR LOCATIONS, AND PRIMARY CORRIDORS. There’s more, but I’ve decided that my eyes are more important than the eye candy…The buck STOPS here! A BUCK? For the FARE?..No? Really? Well I tried! …So, There you have it Folks Done! Have a great day, Everyone! …It’s been SWELL..You know..”For Whom the Swell TOLLS…” 🚙 🙋🏻
