CARTOON ANSWER: WHEN HARRY AND MEGHAN SPLASHED EACH OTHER 

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! 🎈

OSSANE – SEASON

UNHAME – HUMANE

LYASAW – ALWAYS

DILERV – DRIVEL

FOTTIU – OUTFIT

GEBINN – BENIGN

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! ⚾️🙋🏻

Good Morning, Everyone!         🐱 TABBY….OR NOT TABBY…🐱

Can make a cat a RUNNER, be it Frisky, Jules, or Spurs.

Across the floor while heading to the place their bowl is kept…
A can needs to be DUGOUT before the cat is fed…
(Of course I know I’m using it wrong…I’m baseball born and bred…)!
The cat has this big smile, and the woman, look at her…!
She’s just as happy feeding him his favorite meal…”SUP -“PURR” 🐱

Oh, Jeff…not again! Oh, the humanity! Oh, the inhumanity! Today’s words…I think DUGOUT may not sit well with some, and between that and RUNNER? You may be SCRATCHING your head…Our puzzle. Today’s TAIL, is one FUR the CAT Lovers out there…But what gives? Is David trying to lay down the CLAW with Jeff? We’ve just had a CAT puzzle on Monday the 2nd, and now another one here on CATurday the 14th? Is he KITTEN? Why the rePETition? For those of you who may not know, David’s a CAT person, Jeff PURRfers dogs. And yet HAIR we are again. PAW Jeff…We see a kitchen. We see a woman. We see a humongous CAT. And what a PUSS!

WHOYD  –  HOWDY

MURRO –  RUMOR

LGOOBN – OBLONG

FRATID  – ADRIFT

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. 🐦🙋🏻
