Good Morning, Everyone!         🙌🏻 FROM HERE TO ….EXTREMITY 👣

🙌🏻 I realize men don’t hardly care ’bout gloves matching the shoes…
But women like the IMPACT that comes from different hues.
To FLAUNT the shades from WOODSY-green to WEASEL-tones of brown…
There’s nothing ORNERY about accessories we’ve found…
DETACH ourselves from leather, suede? It’s definitely too off-put
This store would be just perfect to be WAITED ON HAND AND FOOT👣

Of our six words today, five are Repeat-Repeats. Although DETACH is showing for just the 3rd time, we have WEASEL, coming in with its’ 5th appearance, FLAUNT its’ 7th, IMPACT, its’ 9th, and ORNERY its’ 10th. IMPACT dates back to August 12th, 2014, while FLAUNT was last seen on August 26th, 2018, making them are oldest and most recent entries. WOODSY, is making its debut, while ORNERY was voted just that…ORNERY!...It came in as the one that took the longest to unscramble…

Today’s cartoon brings us inside a store with a novel idea. FITTINGly, I’m calling it “From Here to Extremity”. We see six Jumble characters, three customers and three sales personnel, and Jeff’s FIT them into the panel quite well. At left we see a man needing new work GLOVES, and the salesman is ready to HAND them right over. At right, a woman looking for MITTENS, is agreeing with the young salesgirl that they do “fit her like a GLOVE“. And at front, we find a woman being FITted for BOOTS, with the salesman sitting at her FEET, offering up HANDS on attention. You gotta HAND it to them…the service here is very personalized, and customers are WAITED ON with that special TOUCH. You can see that they’re made to feel as if they’re the SOLE customer in the store. So between the dialogue and the leading nature of our question…the solution is right at HAND…The customers were..WAITED ON HAND AND FOOT! Good one, David..You deserve a HAND! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Ok, eye candy, and today Jeff’s given us quite A HANDful!…Our panel is colored with a more true to life feel. The backdrop SOLEly is shaded in beige, but all of our characters and a good number of the accessories are shown in vibrant color. The three salespeople are dressed uniformly in white short-sleeved polo shirts with beige pants. They each sport a name tag, but no names are visible. Starting left, we see two pairs of brown gloves hanging on the wall, one fleeced lined. Our bearded and mustachioed workman, dressed in a red plaid flannel shirt and a matching cap, is holding his old GLOVES in his right HAND, while the salesman is seen POINTing to a display showing four different new styles. The salesgirl at right, sporting a pony tail, is FITTING her customer with light green MITTENS, contrasting perfectly with the woman’s green woolen coat, with its white scarfed collar. On the showcase next to them, we see a pair of patterned MITTENS, with fleece cuffs. And our female customer at front, being WAITED ON by the mustachioed SHOE salesman, is dressed in a purple top and black jeans, and is having the laces tied on purple BOOTS that suit her outFIT perfectly. Behind the man we see a two-tiered display, with a patterned SNEAKER, a two-toned laced short BOOT, and a patterned SLIP-ON. But the eye candy? Easy to put my FINGER on..Next to the display of work GLOVES,  if you look real closely, you’ll see a fisted GLOVED HAND, either gripping a rolled up piece of paper or sitting on a GLOVE stand of some sort.  BEFITTING, I suppose, but I’m not getting a definite READ into it…So, There you have it, Folks, Done. Have a great day, Everyone…And I hope nothing comes along today that you can’t HANDle! 👏🏻👣🙋🏻
