CARTOON ANSWER:  HE’D BEEN A TRUCKER FOR YEARS AND WOULD

RETIRE A TRUCK DRIVER. HE WAS – – –

HHN   ULL   AGN   TTO   OII   FRE   =   IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL

Good Morning, Everyone!                 🚛  KEEP ON TRUCKIN’, BABY 🚛

🎶 “Ah, breaker one-nine, this here’s the RUBBER DUCK... you gotta copy on me, PIG PEN, c’mon?” “Ah, yeah, 10-4, PIG PEN, fer shure, fer shure. by golly, it’s clean clear to flag town, c’mon. yeah, that”….”Big 10-4 there, PIG PEN,  yeah, we definitely got the front door, GOOD BUDDY, mercy sakes alive, looks like we got us a CONVOY”…Was the dark of the moon on the sixth of June, In a Kenworth  pullin’ logs, Cab-over pete with a reefer on And a jimmy haulin’ hogs…We is headin’ for bear on i-one-oh ’bout a mile outta shaky town I says, “PIG PEN, this here’s the RUBBER DUCK, And I’m about to put the hammer down….’cause we got a little CONVOY, rockin’ through the night…..Yeah, we got a little CONVOY, Ain’t she a beautiful sight? Come on and join our CONVOY….Ain’t nothin’ gonna get in our way.  We gonna roll this truckin’ CONVOY ‘cross the U S A….CONVOY! …🎶

🚛 A truckers life, a double-edged sword, at least it seems to me,
The hours long and tedious, but there’s that sense of free…
The road is quiet and open, at least all through the night…
Till morning traffic comes along and brings congestions’ fight.
A trucking AGENCY may own the rig that they sit up in,
So most all rigs return at end to that one point of ORIGIN.
But others that have toiled hard and bought a rig brand new…
Sit FREELY in those trucks bearing their name like a TATTOO
I guess it’s like a PULLEY, something always drawing them in,
And calling them to hit the road…another trek begin.
I saw a truck just yday, it looked big as a boat…
And on its side the logo…large in brown, “Burger-She Wrote”…
With a HYPHEN separating the Burger from a pen…
And I laughed, cause it was clever, like the show from way back when.
And I looked up at the trucker, nodded, feeling oh so small…
Wondering if he was one of those IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL! 🚛

BREAK..ER, BREAK..ER? No..they didn’t! Maybe the slightest half tic at ORIGIN, but the rest? DROVE right through. Old favorites. In fact, would you believe PULLEY was here just two weeks ago today? That was a surprise! Anyway, without any  STOPping…lets GO on to the cartoon’s solution! Today we find ourselves on the OPEN ROAD, seeing two LONG HAUL TRUCKERS, talking to one other by RADIO. The dialogue tells us that one of them is a 40-YEAR VETERAN of the ROAD, and he’s in no hurry to hang up his CB. It’s definitely his CAReer…So, with our question asking us what he was…He was…IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL! BEEP BEEP! Good one, David…You’re definitely the KING OF THE ROAD! Ok, eye candy…TRUCK, blue, TRUCK, red…Two CARS, one gold, one green, each going in a different DIRECTION…Nothing much to WORK with here…Except for the staggered LINES noting the CB RADIO’s communication…it’s a quiet RUN…I think I’ll just DRIVE it on home…So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And ….🎶Just keep on TRUCKin‘…🎶 🚛🙋🏻

FYI: SITTING OUT ON THE BOAT EARLIER, SUN REFLECTING OFF THE WATER, MY FRIEND LOU NOTICED THESE..1 – He said that little smidgen of a item on the Veterans dashboard is the ubiquitous Hula Girl Dashboard Doll…2 – His Grill? Dead mosquitos stuck to it…And 3– (YES, 3)! The trucks emblem shows it to be a Kenworth Truck… (Which is mentioned in the opening song, 🎶CONVOY🎶 )…Boy, did I drop the BALL BEARINGS on this one, by claiming no Eye Candy today! Maybe I need to sleep BEFORE I tackle the puzzle…It looks like the nights of partying and doing it BEFORE the sleep isn’t always the right ROAD to take! 😂 CAP off to you, Jeff…🎶 I shoulda known better with a guy like you…🎶 Great details, 👏🏻 Bud…Kudos! 🚛🙋🏻…And a Kudo to Lou3!

GRIGEB – BIGGER

CARTOON ANSWER:  THE NEW BOWLING ALLEY WAS JUST COMPLETED,

AND THE OWNER WAS ANXIOUS TO: 

LH   OAT   LLE   REL   ITN   BGG =    GET THE BALL ROLLING

Good Morning, Everyone!               🎳  RIGHT UP OUR ALLEY 🎳

🎶 Keep the BALL ROLLIN‘, Keep the BALL ROLLIN‘…Girl, the name of the game is love…On your mark, get set, let the kissin’ start, and just keep the BALL ROLLIN‘, Baby right into my heart….🎶

🎳 Get BITTEN by the Bowling bug, and one is sure to see,
It tends to grow much BIGGER, there is MARVEL, not ennui…
I heard the faint SONATA of the pins all tumbling down,
When my friend from Indiana brought his bowling love to town.
He spoke at LENGTH about its’ pros, why I would surely love
The sport of hurling this big ball, while wearing a small glove,
Persistent as a PULLEY, he dragged me to a lane…
And I must say my interest piqued, the doubt began to wane.
So now it’s added to my list of pastimes I find grand,
It’s exercise, it’s fun for me…(the shoes though I can’t stand)…
I’ve gotten better at it, this sport that they call Bowling,
It’s not up there with Baseball, but I do GET THE BALL ROLLING! 🎳

After a week of considerably easy puzzles, we thought maybe we’d be subject to a PARALYZER today..something to really STRIKE our solving ability. But alas, we’ve been SPAREd! The words all seem to be old favorites, and nothing to really KNOCK us DOWN! I couldn’t PIN DOWN MARVEL or BIGGER in my records, yet they do seem familiar. If anyone does remember them, please feel free to let us know. So, let’s ROLL over to our cartoon, and work on our solution. Looking at the FRAME today, we find ourselves at the Grand Opening of a new BOWLING ALLEY. The owner, Mr. HAM BONE, looking to get things off to a good START, is shown standing at the FOUL LINE, poised to throw his BALL. He seems to have a distinctive look about him, meaning he may be an actual person Jeff knows. But I really don’t know where to APPROACH a search from, so I’m just mentioning it, but there’ll be no FOLLOW THROUGH. The LINE he’s speaking is classic Jeff! “Get the GAME going, with the first STRIKE“! HA! The pun within the fun! Good PLAY, Jeff, a DOUBLE WHAMMY! Standing watching, are a group of FIVE. The man farthest left, looks to be our Jumble HEAD PIN, David Hoyt…Not that I automatically think of David every time I see a bald man now…And not that there’s anything wrong with that..if I did..it just looks like him. The others, from LEFT to RIGHT, are a guy who seems to have just ROLLED out of bed, a woman, holding a BOWLING BAG, and at the BACK END, a man and a woman who appear to be clapping…Everyone looks to be anxiously waiting… Our question asks…What was the owner anxious to do…GET THE BALL ROLLING! Well, DROP THE BALL..I mean Drop the Mic! Good one, Dave! PERFECT STRIKE!

Ok, eye candy…Again, I’ll go DOWN the LINE..Dave, is giving a little THUMBs UP. The next guy? Uh, let’s get BACK to him…The blonde woman, whose name is ANNE, according to her shirt, for some unknown reason, has her tongue hanging from her mouth…I can’t PIN that one DOWN. The next man, who I’m naming DIRK, is very SOLID looking, and our women at the END, who I’ll call MEG, is looking AVERAGE. So, let’s go BACK to our number TWO…Ok, I hate to sound FOUL, but I am from BROOKLYN, so I’m not going to SPARE this guys’ feelings. Where’d he ROLL in from, the GUTTER? He’s dressed in shorts and a Tee-shirt. (At least I hope they’re shorts)! Over that, he’s wearing a bathrobe! C’mon, SPARE me! I mean has this guy CROSSED THE LINE, or what? He’s holding a Pilsner glass with what I presume to be beer. He looks like an regular ALLEY cat. You know, maybe that’s why Anne has her tongue hanging out..She many be afraid he’s going to BUMPER! I just can’t CHANNEL this guy..but I’ll name him MARK MURRAY, and pick him as the eye candy for today. THE FULL MURRAY…So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone!..And remember..STRIKE while the iron is hot…and you’ll always be SPAREd any indecision. Bottom LINE, no one likes those SPLIT decisions…At least not in my oPINion! 🎳🙋🏻
