Good Morning, Everyone!         🚙 “WRECK” AND ROLL 🚙

🎶 Got two CARS and a chainlink fence, got INSURANCE for ACCIDENTS. Nevermind what I don’t know, I dream of places I won’t ever go. But I lead a good life…Yeah, I lead a good life. ‘N every Sunday we’re out at the lake, teachin’ the KIDS how to jump the wake…We drag em on two skis, they kick one loose, they don’t know it, they hadn’t got a clue…That they lead a good life…Yeah, they lead a good life…🎶

🚙 The time must come when baby birds must fly off from the nest,
And with it comes inevitably…”My kids got a road test”…
The PERMIT went real smoothly, maybe a KERNEL here or there,
You try to act so nonchalant, you don’t want to seem SQUARE.
You teach them rules and reason…like “EIGHTY never hit”..
But inside you’re a COWARD ’cause you’re worried over it.
You see them drive SUPERBly, hovering you now must quit…
But worrying and parenting? It’s just “PRE-WRECK-QUISITE”! 🚙

So…Do we think this was an ACCIDENT? Or did David really try to pull out all the STOPs on this one? These are some SMASHing anagrams today! I did a quick search, just to be sure, and yes, they’re all old favorites. Well, old anyway! We weren’t JUMP STARTING over them last time either! I mean we made some DENTS in them, but they did SLOW us down. I found this: Permit, Superb and Coward, seem to go back to 2016, Square: July ’17, Kernel: Nov ’17, and Eighty, believe it or not, just this past February. Maybe after today, they’ll become favorites…

Ok, our cartoon. Notice INSURANCE being mentioned twice? Once in the dialogue and again in the question? That doesn’t happen very often. So I’m immediately thinking that I should concentrate on a requirement. The Mothers’ comment about needing it…”PRE“. Prerequisite? Hmm…And then it was like that V-8 commercial, and I SMASHED my hand against my forehead! INSURANCE? In case there’s an ACCIDENT? “PREWRECK-QUISITE”!! Ha! I was ALL (in a) STATE of euphoria! This one’s no DRIVE BY, Folksthis one’s a CRASH COURSE in cleverness! Great job, David! I’m BRAKEing up with laughter

Ok, eye candy…The young girl has a Unicorn on her T-Shirt. Not significant, but I thought I’d POINT it out. The Mom’s pretty nondescript, but her hair is TIED UP nicely in a bun. Dad’s just standing there..IDLING, mostlySo, what’s the KEY to the eye candy today? Hard to say..through NO FAULT of my own…This one’s all on Jeff. He’s given me nothing in PARKticular to ZOOM in on…Hmm. A little WRECKless on his part, I’d say…Really, I’m SHOCKed..ABSORBERing it all in, and coming up EMPTY! I guess I’ll just GO with the CAR. It’s purple…A Purple CAR! IMO? Uh, Mr. Colorist? You AUTO know better than to do that…A Purple CAR? C’mon, gimme a BRAKE! I really wish I could have DODGEd this one! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And remember..Texting and DRIVING? Oh, CELL no! 🚙🙋🏻

Good Morning, Everyone!             ☎️   HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY   ☎️

🎶 When the evening shadows fall…and the lovely day is through, then with longing I recall the years I spent with you…MAMA, I miss the days when you were near to guide me…MAMA,  those happy days when you were here beside me. Safe in the glow of your love, sent from the heavens above…Nothing can ever replace the warmth of your tender embrace… Oh, MAMA,  until the day that we’re together once more…I’ll live in these memories…Until the day that we’re together once more…🎶

❤️ Mothers are a breed apart…There’s no one can compare
We needed them as children, but the need don’t disappear.
For those of us who’ve lost them, today takes quite a toll,
You’re happy for the others, but your heartache still unfolds.
My MOTIVE here’s not sadness, but that emptiness I bear?
I can go through all the MOTIONs, but the echoes I still hear.
I’ve a NOTION just to let it go, not do a foolish rhyme
But I’m wide awake and you know…You can’t run away from time…
Always.. daily…even HOURLY, my thoughts of her are close,
And I’m not the one of FEWEST words…in fact I’m quite verbose.
So now how do I DEPICT this, this cartoon of Mother’s pride…
When I’m missing my own Mother, and my heartache’s hard to hide?
I’ll just say that it’s quite timely, and the Jumble’s sweet intention…
Isn’t lost on me…It’s nice to see this MOTHER OF INVENTION…❤️

Words. We’re here for Words. And I’m going on record to say that the most beautiful word in any language, is Mother. Period. And today we celebrate all MOTHERS. And maybe David. MOTION and NOTION? Anagrammed to look nothing like one another? I say, Kudos, Sir. But Jeff? The hips? What was your MOTIVE there? A little bit of a broad stroke of that pen, no? And you know I checked. But most images of NANCY EDISON DEPICT her from the waist up only, so I really can’t judge. But since I have such great faith in your artists’ eye…I’ll let it go. It’s the FEWEST of my worries this morning. As for the Thomas Edison-Mothers Day connection? Well….Here’s another broad stroke. I’m just going to tell you all that there’s a ton of stories on line. What’s true, what’s not? A ton of stories. Was MAMA Edison supportive? Of course she was. Was EDISON creative? Of course he was. Was he one of our greatest inventors? Of course he was. Did he probably do more to shape the physical and cultural makeup of our present day civilization? I suppose he did. Did he “INVENT” MOTHER’S DAY? Of course he didn’t! Anna Jarvis did Folks. As I said….A ton of stories on line. Ok…Today, we’re in the childhood home of THOMAS EDISON, which we see also doubles as his workshop/lab. He’s with his MOTHER, and our question asks…What was his MOM happy to be? The MOTHER OF INVENTION! Bravo, David! You’ve CREATED a really good one here!! Ok, eye candy.. Today, the cartoon’s a gem. A plethora of amazing detail! And if I can get past the hips, I’ll do my best to list them for you…On the table: A hammer. A candle encased in a glass holder. An early day megaphone. A paper airplane. A pair of scissors. Crude early day earphones. Two spherical objects that I’m unsure of…one depicting the tiniest of figures running. The other? A speaker perhaps…A drawing of an early telephone…And thread. Phew! SEWing it all up so far?  Masterful. And then we have two framed photos, on a credenza. One of Thomas alone, one of him with whom I’m assuming to be his parents. On the wall, a lamp. MAMA Edison is wearing a necklace. Thomas is wearing a cap and a string tie. The chair is engraved with a flowery design. And there’s a pencil behind Thomas’s ear. There’s just so much here… The solution? There’s Thomas, speaking with his MOTHER through tiny hand held megaphones, connected by a string wiring….He’s calling his MOTHER…❤️💔 So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And to all those celebrating MOTHER’S DAY today…I wish you a wonderful day of Laughter, Love and Happiness! Enjoy! ☎️ 🙋🏻
