CARTOON ANSWER: THE GHOSTS GOT ALONG SO WELL BECAUSE THEY WERE – –

PRNE   SIK   STRD   IID  =  KINDRED SPIRITS

Good Morning, Everyone!          🙏🏻 MAY THE SPIRIT BE WITH YOU 🙏🏻

🎶 If you think you’re hearing something….And you can’t think what it is, If you feel a quiet longing…Lift your heart into the wind. There you’ll find my KINDRED SPIRIT…There you’ll meet me as a friend….It is just a KINDRED feeling…And a song to let you in…🎶 “Kindred Spirit” – Cyndi Lauper 1989

🙏🏻 In life we all will come across so many different souls…
We’re PRONE to form a friendship where a certain bond enfolds.
With a person who won’t STRAND you, and who’ll keep your secrets near…
Someone who sees the you, that’s you and keeps the friendship dear.
With nothing to DIVIDE you, and a sense of SILKY ease,
You look upon this person with whom life is such a breeze…
A friend like this is rare indeed…you’ll never call it quits,
You’re truly blest to be known as the two KINDRED SPIRITS…🙏🏻

Today’s puzzle contains all words that we’ve seen before. Our cartoon…It’s a bit eerie…In light of the devastation taking place in our country today, with the wrath of Florence, I find the puzzle very bittersweet. We see the smiling SPIRITS of two FIREFIGHTERS, sitting together on a park bench. The panel is very stark. Except for the green of the grass, the brown of the tree trunk, and a little blue-gray of the bench, there is no color…Even the leaves on the tree are white. The FIREMEN themselves are gray images, drawn with transparency, so as to blend into the bench; and you can see the blackened edging where the grass ends faintly transposed across their faces in waved lines. Their conversation centers on the dedication these brave men possess when it comes to helping others…and they find that they both became FIREMEN for that same altruistic reason. The men are SPIRITS, KINDRED SPIRITS. And what makes it so bittersweet for me, is that since they’re dressed in their uniforms, with the one man still holding a pick axe, I can’t help but wonder if they died “as FIREMEN. If they died in the line of duty...And after watching the news all day, and seeing these selfless men out there risking their own safety to help rescue others, it just makes me sad…Hence the somber tone of this write-up today. It’s just a bit overwhelming seeing what’s happening to our neighbors in the South. My heart goes out to them, my prayers go out to them, my Faith, however shaken by events such as this is with them… I wish Everyone a blessed day, and I’m going to end this with words that I always believed could mend any fence, right any wrong, and end any war…“Love thy Neighbor as Thyself”. 🙏🏻🙋🏻

CARTOON ANSWER: THE POSSIBILITY THAT ESP WAS REAL DIDN’T EVEN – – -.

IRN   DEH   STM   IEN   =    ENTER HIS MIND

Good Morning, Everyone!      🙄 ESP…ecially WHEN THEY’RE WRONG! 🙄

🎶 GYPSYS, tramps, and thieves…We’d hear it from the people of the town,
They’d call us GYPSYS, tramps, and thieves…But every night all the men would come around…And lay their money down…🎶 “Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves” – Cher 1971

🔮 You pay the woman $10…You’re wondering what you’ll get…
And for Mr. Mittens sitting here, this seer ‘ain’t got it yet.
He hears her INVENT stories, her guesses off the mark,
The DEPTH of psychic knowledge so far looking pretty stark.
The IRONY, the disbelief, it’s all coincidence…
This seer is stabbing in the dark to gain his confidence.
So thinking Mr. Mittens with a name such as he has
Must have a cat is giving him a major case of blahs…
He’s getting mad, his attitude quite STORMY say the least,
His doubt is mounting as his thoughts of swindle are increased.
Let’s face it Folks, he should have known…What did he think he’d find?
I bet that I could tell you what might now ENTER HIS MIND! 🔮

All of our words today are Sweet Repeats, the most recent being IRONY, which adorned our pages not long ago, on June 26th. DEPTH, which we saw on October 14th of last year, was anagrammed as PHEDT, just a one-letter difference than today’s. The stumper to close out this week? If I had to GUESS? I’m READING INVENT, from what emails friends have sent this morningSo maybe that’s it? Or maybe not? 😉

Ok..Our Cartoon. Today we find ourselves at some sort of State Fair. I say this,  because, off in the background, silhouetted in black, we can see Carnival-type tents, and a Ride of some sort, perhaps a Tilt-A-Whirl. Sitting in a tent, we find MS. IDA TAKEAGUESS, claiming to have ESP..EXTRASENSORY PERCEPTION, giving a PSYCHIC BLEEDING, I mean READING, to a MR. MITTENS. We “hear” her telling him that she SEES him “Thinking about” his cat…Only thing is...MR. MITTENS is ALLERGIC to cats! Now that’s nothing to SNEEZE at, that’s a big mistake! So that right there is giving him PAWS. He’s beginning to SEERiously doubt this whole thing…And rightfully so. She’s not READING his MIND at all…So what’s MR MITTENS really thinking? That he’s been HAD…And he wishes he HAD his $10 back!…Because, as our question is stating…The possibility that ESP is real? Really? It didn’t even ENTER HIS MIND! CRYSTAL BALL, CRYSTAL BALL! There you go, we’ve solved it all! Good one, David! SEERiously….Good one!

Ok, eye candy…What’s inside the tent is kind of BLANK. There’s the little Gold sign stating ESP $10, but I’m not READING much into it. IDA’s wearing a WINE colored TURBAN, which matches her dress, but DECANT get excited over that. MR. MITTENS? Blue shirt, incredulous look…Nothing EXTRAordinary. Blue-Black Fringed Tablecloth…I’ve COTTON better before…I GUESS it’ll have to be the Light Blue CRYSTAL BALL...Yea, it’s the best that I can SEE…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And remember…You have an EXTRA $10 to burn? CATch a movie instead…ESPecially a comedy…You’ll laugh either way! 🔮🙋🏻

SASING – ASSIGN

CARTOON ANSWER:   HE SAID THE BODY OF WATER NAMED AFTER MAGELLAN WAS A CHANNEL, BUT HE NEEDED TO – – –

TGT   CAA   FRE   ST   THI   SSI   =   GET HIS FACTS “STRAIT” 

Good Morning, Everyone!                🌊 WATER YOU KNOW…? 🌊

🎶 STRAITEN up and fly right, STRAITEN up and stay right…STRAITEN up and fly right, cool down Papa, don’t you blow your top…Ain’t no use in divin’. What’s the use of jivin’?…STRAITEN up and fly right, cool down Papa don’t you blow your top….🎶 “Straighten Up And Fly Right” – Nat King Cole 1943

🌊 Today we see more tourists, these are visiting Chile,
And the TARGET of their interest lacks the THRILL that it might be…
The reason, one perhaps UNJUST….a word just made them FREEZE,
As they stood upon the Shore and listened to Señor Cortese.
The itinerary told them….”We’ll ASSIGN a guide to you…
And he’ll take you to the Strait to see, and guide you all way through,
There won’t be time to camp out, no CABANA up for rest,
But our guides are all efficient, and you’re getting Chile’s best…”
Only it turned out that this guide must have missed a day or two,
Because it’s become obvious his data don’t ring true…
And our couple here just knows it…See our girl telling her mate?
“We need a guide who’s able at least to GET HIS FACTS “STRAIT”! 🌊 

All of our words today are Sweet Repeats. Except for TARGET, which we just had this past March 13th, the rest are older, from 2016 and 2017. I found them easily recognizable, but friends are saying that ASSIGN and THRILL caused them to falter a bit. Usually the UN words tend to catch some of us, but with JUTS practically giving us JUST, I don’t think it’ll slow anyone down today. Let us know what you think…
On to the cartoon…Today’s answer came to me as soon as I read the guides’ dialogue, and caught the error with the MAGELLAN CHANNEL. Knowing it’s called a STRAIT, and seeing the “…”, the solution just presented itself. The CHANNEL hint was a big one. I always feel that the dialogue and the question hint very strongly at the answer…and most times the answer is a familiar phrase of sorts. Plus, the way Jeff portrays the characters is a big help too. There’s a ton of data on-line about the MAGELLAN STRAIT, which IS a CHANNEL in reality, discussing it’s narrowness as far as CARGO  travel goes, etc…But to be honest, it’s early Sunday morning…does anyone really want a Geography lesson? I didn’t think so! So…Let’s SAIL on to the good stuff…We see three tourists standing on land, with the guide, Señor Cortese identifying the STRAIT by the wrong NAME. He doesn’t have his information STRAIGHT. The woman shown at front, immediately realizes his error, and points it out to the man she’s with. And with the question asking about the “Body of water NAMED after MAGELLAN“…well, the guide needs to GET HIS FACTS “STRAIT”. Smooth Sailing, we’ve got it STRAIGHT! Good one, David!

Ok, eye candy. The STRAIT’S water is shown in Blue and Black tones. In the background, we see small mountain areas, colored Black and White. Two White CLOUDS are shown overhead. And there’s a Grayish Bale of CARGO shown drifting by. Everyone’s nicely dressed. The male tourist, holding a Smart Phone, is in Blue, his companion in shades of Green, and the third tourist, another woman, wearing a Visor, is dressed in Blue tones also. She’s taking a picture of the STRAIT, with her phone, and Jeff’s managed to capture the image perfectly. The guide is nattily dressed in Khaki, head to toe. And I  especially like his dark-brimmed Gaucho type hat, complete with its’ joined STAMPEDE STRING. But I’m not going to WAIST any more time…I’m going with the FANNY PACK on the visored woman. FANNY PACKS just make me smile! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And remember, it’s always important to get a persons’ name STRAIT. If you don’t, you may get a CHILE response!  🌊🙋🏻

CARTOON ANSWER: THEY WANTED TO INSTALL A NEW TRAFFIC SIGNAL AND JUST NEEDED THE CITY TO – – – 

GLI   GRIN. ENH   TTE   =   GREEN LIGHT IT 

Good Morning, Everyone!            🚦THE LIGHT WAY TO DO IT 🚦

🎶 TURN on your heartLIGHT…Let it shine wherever you GO. Let it make a happy GLOW for all the world to see…TURN on your heartLIGHT, in the middle of a young boy’s dream…Don’t wake me up too soon. Gonna take a RIDE across the moon…You and me…🎶 “Heartlight” – Neil Diamond 1982

🚦 We all know about congestion while driving here and there,
There is no GLITZ involved with getting round a thoroughfare…
Sometimes you feel you’re in a TRENCH, ensconced and sinking deep,
It’s all you do to fight the urge to just fall right asleep.
Your mind can tend to wander, you’re thinking of your grille…
You should have taken time to check, you think as you sit still.
You noticed something sticking out…and now you start to wonder,
How come it isn’t spelt as GRILL..another thing to ponder.
You’re starting to lose patience, this traffic’s just insane…
The city needs to come up with a different kind of lane…
The Traffic Board holds meetings, where they TATTLE and they prate,
But nothing seems to change the lights that leave us with this fate…
Please let relief be coming, you’re now thinking as you sit…
What signal does the city need before they’ll GREEN LIGHT IT?🚦

Nothing about today’s words STOPPED us in our tracks, and the only one that may have DRIVEN us to the slightest bit of distraction is TRENCH, last seen back on November 2nd. That day, it appeared as: CNERHT, and caused a little TIE UP for a few of us. So, once again today, with all of our words being Sweet Repeats…(GLITZ the oldest, last seen WAY BACK UP on December 28th of 2016)…let’s just ACCELERATE the process and TURN RIGHT to our CARtoon…Today, Jeff has us SITTING IN (on a) TRAFFIC Board meeting with CITY Planners. We see a TRAFFIC Board Representative STANDINGONLY with a diagram of an Intersection at an easel. A TRAFFIC LIGHT shows at center, highlighted in YELLOW. Three City Board members SIT, two of them with a replica of the Intersection before them. Because of all the congestion at this particular intersection, it’s been decided that a FOUR-WAY STOP needs to be implemented; and to do so, a new “TRAFFIC SIGNAL” needs to be installed…The City Board member at RIGHT, is seen saying, “We’ll all agree to do this”, (while pointing DIRECTly to the TRAFFIC LIGHT in the diagram)…They APPROVE. And our solution is all MAPPED out for us Folks,  RIGHT there in the dialogue and the question and that TRAFFIC LIGHT! So, what’s LEFT?…They needed the City to…GREEN LIGHT IT! Good one, Dave! You’ve DRIVEN home another winner!

Ok, eye candy…Hmm…Pretty pLANE  drawing today, with a Key clue being the TRAFFIC LIGHT drawn at the MIDDLE of the diagram…But I think I’ll GO with the TIE, UP on the guy in front. He’s wearing a String Tie…Haven’t men STOPPED wearing those? So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone!…And here’s to no one getting STUCK in Holiday TRAFFIC this weekend! DRIVE safely, and Enjoy! 🚦🙋🏻

🎶 Come along my Baby, HOLE lotta shakin’ goin’ on…Yes, I said come along my Baby, Baby you can’t go wrong..We ain’t fakin’, HOLE lotta shakin’ goin’ on…Well, I said come along my Baby, we got chicken in the barn..Woo-huh..Come along my Baby, really got the bull by the horn..We ain’t fakin’, HOLE lotta shakin’ goin’ on…I said shake it, Baby…Shake it..Come on over, HOLE lotta shakin’ goin’ on….🎶 “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” – Jerry Lee Lewis  1957

🐿 So rodents prone to burrow…Prairie Dogs known as ground squirrels,
And to those of you who know me…know already I’m in peril…
Problem here? I’m saying squirrel and then rodent in one sentence?
A pause while I INHALE and try regaining normal essence…
I feel my face turn MEALY, COMFY not the place I’m at,
To greet the early morning with a bunch of burrowing rats…
But I’ll emulate an ORIOLE, and fly above the fray,
That I’ve found myself a part of way too early in the day.
So we’re faced with Prairie Dogs amok, relocating we can see…
But I’m just not digging meeting with today’s “HOLE” FAMILY! 🐿

HOLA!! And welcome to Friday, and the start of a long Holiday weekend! Let’s kick it off…Except for two of my early morning Jumble Crew telling me that they PALED for a quick second at MEALY, today’s words were pretty DOGgone easy. So let’s just DIG in and get to our solution…Today we find ourselves out in a open field. A FAMILY of PRAIRIE DOGS are making a new HOME for themselves, and apPARENTly they DIG their new surroundings…It’s a pretty HOLEsome FAMILY scene, I suppose…We see the Dad, standing at left, telling his wife, who’s “DIGGING the Kitchen” that it’s “great to have the kids helping“. And I’m counting 7 kids!…That’s a lot of kids…They may just GOPHER broke getting this new HOME off the GROUND, right? I wonder if they KNEADed to BURROW any moneyAnyway, with this HOLE FAMILY AFFAIR going on, and all the HOLES we see being DUG…They BURROWED with help from the…”HOLE” FAMILY! Good one, David…I can DIG it!

Ok, eye candy…The two tiny DOGS standing way off in the distance are a cute deTAIL, but I’ll SHAKE it off… I’m going with the Sister and Brother duo at front…He’s whacking her with a Tree Limb…Sibling Rivalry taken to a HOLE ‘nother  level…I’d GROUND him in a minute! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! We’ve the HOLE long weekend to look forward to…Kick up some dirt and Enjoy! 🐿🙋🏻

ON THEIR HONEYMOON, IT WAS A – – –  

WAT   GRN   IEY   TOL   =     ROYAL “WETTING”

Good Morning, Everyone!          👰🏻👑 WETTER OR KNOT? 👑👰🏻

🎶 Come with me, my Love ..To the SEA, the SEA OF LOVE...I want to tell you how much I love you…Do you remember when we met…That’s the day I knew you were my pet….I want to tell you how much I love you….🎶 “Sea of Love” – Phil Phillips 1959

👰🏻👑 A sea of blue the newlyweds are frolicking about,
There’s no way Harry has a paunch, so that I’ll do without…
We WATCH them looking happy, with no cares upon their minds,
It seems they’ve gotten far away from what’s their daily GRIND.
The graphic’s very TIMELY, since they’ve recently returned,
From the UNTOLD destination and the wagging tongues still burn.
But does it really matter where they went to celebrate?
What is the fascination with this pair of Royal mates?
To Anglophiles it’s such big news, there’s guessing and there’s betting…
I like them both, but let’s get real…it’s just a ROYAL “WETTING”! 👑👰🏻

With all our words today being Sweet Repeats, I was surprised to see that TIMELY had just appeared here 15 days ago. WATER the odds? And besides perhaps a slight tic at UNTOLD, they’re all easy, breezy entries for today. So let’s move one to our solution…🎶Somewhere Out There🎶 is where we find ourselves today. PRINCE HARRY and his Bride, MEGHAN MARKEL are shown REIGNING supreme in our cartoon. Since no one knows for SHORE where they HONEYMOONED, we can only go by what we SEA. And what we SEA is the lovely couple, getting along SWIMMINGLY, frolicking in the WATER. The ROYALS are in the WATER. So being asked what it was when they SPLASHED around on their HONEYMOON?..It was a ROYAL “WETTING“! Now how cute is that? Well done, David…you still REIGN amongst the best!

Ok, eye candy. There’s an adorable little FISH grinning up  happily at HARRY…Who wouldn’t? There’s Jeff’s signature sinking SAILBOAT adorning the background…but that ship has sailed…So the CROWNing Glory today? MEGHAN’S wearing a DIAMOND RING and a CROWN! And that topped it off for me! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And HEIRS 🍷 to the Happy Couple!👑👰🏻🙋🏻

SPECIAL SHOUT OUT TO MIKE: 🎈Happy Birthday! And many, many more! 🎈

CARTOON ANSWER:  THE HOTEL AT THE BOTTOM OF THE GRAND CANYON

WAS DONE, AND THE OWNERS WERE READY TO – –

SSOUNEWSDIEOTTBNG – GET DOWN TO BUSINESS

Good Morning Everyone!     🏡 There’s No BUSINESS Like LOW BUSINESS! 🏡

🎶We went to the GRAND CANYON…And we stood at the expanse…And we watched the rocks change colors….And we watched the shadows dance. And we probably didn’t say anything as the sunset turned to night…We let the spirits do the talking with cascades of faded light…🎶

🏡 Whenever a SEASON changed from one to the other, it wasn’t just an OUTFIT she worried about; because listening to the media’s DRIVEL, hardly BENIGN, ALWAYS made her think that the Fashion Industry probably wasn’t the most HUMANE of careers…it was more like…YOU-mane-NOT! 🏡

What a morning! Here on Staten Island, NY, we’ve dropped 40°. It’s cold and we have a coastal flood warning in effect. The rains are coming, we’ll be STORMY. The morning news is STORMY…It’s just one of those days…But, the show must go on. So, how about our words? Did they have you CLIMBing the walls? Did they ROCK the boat? Did they leave you feeling STONE cold? Whatever you’re thinking, let’s just get to the BOTTOM of this puzzle…Our words today were perfect Sunday fare. Challenging. Maybe even tougher than the solution itself. Looking at the cartoon this morning, the answer came immediately. The word “open” in the dialogue and “Hotel” in the question just seemed to FORM the answer for me. But we had to get our words. And are they BUTTES! My TICS as the ROCKIEST? SEASON and DRIVEL. Drivel because it’s not the most common word, and Season because I believe the eye seems to go to the double S...and get Stuck…and ESS wrong! Ok, our cartoon. Phantom Ranch is a historic oasis nestled at the BOTTOM of GRAND CANYON. It is on the north side of the Colorado River tucked in beside Bright Angel Creek. This is what I found on-line, so I’m sharing it with you all. There’s a lot of info out there, so if it’s of interest to you, take a LOOK. For those of you who have visited GRAND CANYON , you know how breathtakingly beautiful it is. The cartoon, albeit accurately depicted, doesn’t do it much justice. But what can we expect? I’m sure Jeff went to the DEPTHS of his artistic ability with it, but let’s face it Folks, it’s an UPHILL CLIMB! It’s a WONDER he even gave us this much! We see the CANYON, and two female guides discussing the opening of the Hotel, which is seen at the BOTTOM. They’re dressed in uniFORM, and just as all new BUSINESS owners are, they appear to be excited about the GRAND opening. Our question asks what they were ready to do...GET DOWN TO BUSINESS…And there we have it! PLAIN and simple! Solved! Ok, eye candy…What can I say, Folks…nothing’s JUMPing out at me…And I’m really reaching DOWN into every NOOK and CREVICE of my addled mind too…Let’s just skip it for today…I may have hit ROCK BOTTOM!  Have a great day, Everyone! And if you’ve never been, consider visiting the GRAND CANYON. It’s absolutely GORGEous! 🏡🙋🏻

FYI: Today in Major League Baseball, we honor Jackie Robinson, in celebration of his historic career. All MLB players today wear his number, 42, on their jerseys in commemoration. With the weather being what it is, we may not all get to see our favorite teams play today, but just the same, it’s a great day in Baseball! RIP Jackie. We’re better for having known you! ⚾️🙋🏻

CARTOON ANSWER :  NEWS TRAVELED QUICKLY FROM PARROT TO PARROT

AS A RESULT OF – – – 

HDRUMOBOIFT =  “BIRD” OF MOUTH

Good Morning, Everyone!               🐦 SQUAWK of The Town 🐦

🎶 Bye, bye, BIRDIE…I’m gonna miss you so….Bye, bye, BIRDIE Why’d ya have to go? (Bye, bye)Bye, bye, BIRDIE..It’s awful hard to bear…Bye, bye, BIRDIE, guess I’ll always care…Guess I’ll always ca-a-a-a-are …Guess I’ll always care! 🎶

🐦 Three parrots in a tree we see, and all of them can talk,
They fly around from place to place and always they do squawk.
They say HOWDY, they say Goodbye, sometimes they’ll say So long
Despite a RUMOR you may hear their beaks are not OBLONG
We see them all ADRIFT in trees, communicating loud,
They always flock together, with them it’s one big crowd.
They’re said to speak, and mimic, they can’t live well in drought…
They like to wet their beaks a lot…they’re each a “BIRD” OF MOUTH!🐦

Well, HOWDY! Not only are today’s words all old favorites, but we’ve seen RUMOR as recently as March 24th! And HOWDY was one of our gifts on Christmas Day! We saw OBLONG on May 14th, and ADRIFT on June 13th. So, did a little BIRDIE whisper in our ear with a hint or two this time around?…Or did we find ourselves up a TREE?…The anagrams are all new, and I think a little easier this time around. But if I was forced to go out on a LIMB, IDK…They were all pretty TWEET to me…What about you, Folks? What word RUFFLED your FEATHERS today? Let me know…Ok, our cartoon. Let’s take a BEAK…Today Jeff’s FLOWN us away to a warmer climate. Let’s say South America. We’re up in a TREE, listening to the conversation of three PARROTS. As we know, PARROTS can “talk“. What they do, is MIMIC the sounds that they hear. Science tells us that it has something to do with the wiring in their brains. BIRD brains..Hmm. Where have I heard that before? Sounds very familiar. But I digress…The three we see here, are letting one another know that it’s time to FLY the coop…or flee the TREE as it were. Being very social birds, they live in groups, called FLOCKS. So if ones going, they’re all going. And since they’re all together, you know, BIRDS of a FEATHER…news travels fast. So, how do they get the WORD out…”BIRDOF MOUTH! Well BEAK-a-boo…Dave’s got you! Now we’re SQUAWKING! Good one, Dave! Ok, eye candy…What can I say? There’s not much to choose from here…This cartoon’s really for the BIRDS…I like the black BEAK on the PARROT farthest back, but I’m not HOOKED on it. I’m going to go with the PARROT already in FLIGHT…He must be that early BIRD we’ve always heard about. Or perhaps he got a TWEET? Is he on TWITTER?  Should we FOLLOW him? CLAWS why is he FLYING off alone…? Hmm. A POLYGON for sure! So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone. And remember..There will always be questions in life…a PARROTdox here, a PARROTdox there…Just don’t let them get you DOWN. 🐦🙋🏻
