EGTUS – GUEST

MNOWA – WOMAN

TINKET – KITTEN

SLOPIH – POLISH

CARTOON ANSWER:    HIS ATTEMPT TO GIVE UP CIGARETTES – – – 

UET   WMN   KEN   POIS   =  WENT UP IN SMOKE

Good Morning, Everyone!             🚬  AIR YOU HAVE IT 🚬

🎶 You said you love me…Oh I was so blind, you had my world spinning round and round…You said I was your heart and soul desire…There ain’t NO SMOKE without fire…🎶 “No Smoke” – Queensberry 2008  https://tinyurl.com/yaazw7rp

🚬 I’m wondering just where he went to light that cigarette,
By staying indoors did he think he wouldn’t have regret?
The window doesn’t always help, the wind will blow both ways,
And this guys’ WOMAN now’s become a little bit enraged…
The KITTEN that she might have been has lost her pretty POLISH,
She’s angry at him and he had to know he’d be admonished..
I think he’ll now be treated as a GUEST when night draws near,
And by that I mean he might not be in the bed they share…
Her look, her words, severity looms…it’s certainly no joke,
It looks to me like he and she for sure WENT UP IN SMOKE…🚬

Before I go any further, I want to apologize to all my sisters out there for referring to our WOMAN as a KITTEN. Trust me, I was gritting my teeth. I had this faint image of an Ann Margaret type character, in boots and wielding a whip…(Not there’s anything wrong with that, but that’s a story for another time and place😉)…I hope you all realize that I had to take poetic license in order to work the word into the rhyme, and it was either that or having the smoke asphyxiate a defenseless animal. And since I don’t want an issue with the ASPCA, I had to slight us women. I appreciate your understanding. Ok…Strange as this may seem, especially in LIGHT of all this, I’m not finding WOMAN in the Archives. That can’t be possible can it? I’m going to look again later when I’m not so pressed for time. Our other words, Sweet Repeats a few times over, with KITTEN appearing for the 7th time, (it figures, right)?…and anagrammed exactly as it was three times before, going back to 2016. It’s also our most recent word, and had previously showed up twice, 9 days apart last July. None of the words posed any problems, though…they were all a breeze…

Speaking of breeze, we see one dominant in our cartoon today. A breeze blowing smoke-filled air back into the home of our featured couple. He’s sneaking a smoke, while she catches him trying to hide it. And our dialogue tells us that this isn’t their first rodeo either, since we hear her saying…”You said you quit”. Uh oh… https://tinyurl.com/ycktvbce  And it’s obvious that his previous attempts to kick the habit…WENT UP IN SMOKE! Good one, David…AIR YE! AIR YE!

Eye candy? A mint would come in handy…but we’ll make do with what we have…The entire panel is brushed in light purple. He sports a mustache and a soul patch, and is dressed in jeans and a black T-shirt. She’s in black tights and a green Tee. The air from the opened window is wafting the smoke upward. It seems like he may be in an attached garage, since she is able to smell the evidence, and he looks to be sitting on a corrugated cardboard crate, since it’s showing signs of being creased by his weight. A light switch turned to the ON position is visible on the wall, and through the opened window we can see the blue of daylight. I just can’t place where we are though, so I’m just going to make a judgement call…My thought? This guy’s definitely in the Doghouse…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…and be careful not to BLOW a good thing! 🚬🙋🏻

PUYSO – SOUPY

GORNP –  PRONG

ZAYNZA – SNAZZY

TINKET – KITTEN

CARTOON ANSWER:  WHEN HE FAILED THE DRIVING PORTION OF HIS DRIVER’S TEST, HE WAS IN A – – – 

SOP   ONG   SNAZ   IEN    =  NO PASSING ZONE 

Good Morning, Everyone!           🚦DRIVEN TO DISTRACTION? 🚦

🎶 Can you take me to the store, then the bank?…I’ve got five dollars we can put in the tank…I’ve got a court date coming this June…I’ll be DRIVING soon…Passenger side, passenger side, I don’t like riding on the passenger side…I don’t like riding on the passenger side…🎶 “Passenger Side – Wilco 1995

🚦 A young boy with a license, a story old as time…
The road he travels getting there not always so sublime,
He wants to be behind the wheel, he’s positivity smitten,
He’s thinking what he’ll name his car, perhaps it might be KITTEN.
But SOUPY thoughts had filled his mind, confusion blocked his view…
He passed some cars, not a smart move, the act strictly taboo.
His Mother stands there waiting, she senses something’s wrong
I’m now going to use this line to get rid of that PRONG
No SNAZZY car for our boy here…once more he will bemoan,
And maybe next time he’ll stay clear of the NO PASSING ZONE! 🚦

Just the second day in, and we may already have another new word with SNAZZY. But our three others, Sweet Repeats, caused no TIE-UP at all. So, on to our CARtoon: Today Jeff places us at the LICENSE BUREAU. We see a young teen, bemoaning the fact that he’s once again failed his ROAD TEST. We see the TEST Examiner, bemoaning the fact that he was possibly DRIVEN to drink, and we see the teens’ Mom, bemoaning the fact that she’ll still be STUCK chauffeuring him around. Mom’s thoughts…”Gimme a BRAKE“! The Examiner’s thoughts, “I’m EXHAUSTED“! The teen’s thoughts, “I didn’t know…The SUSPENSION was killing me”. With the dialogue telling us that he went around cars in error, and our question stating his FAILURE…The solution to this TEST is…He was in a ...NO PASSING ZONE!…BEEP! BEEP! Hand us the KEYS, Dave’s given us the GREEN LIGHT! Good one, David! You’ve DRIVEN it home!

Ok, eye candy…Hmm…The ROAD’S pretty CLEAR this morning…Let’s just go with the Examiners’ CLIP BOARD…It reads, “FAIL“…and we’ll STOP right there…So, There you have it, Folks. Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And remember…Don’t PASS on the RIGHT…You may find yourself LEFT BEHIND! 🚦🙋🏻

GELAGH –  HAGGLE

AMFEEL – FEMALE

TUTELO – OUTLET

TINKET – KITTEN

NUKHYC – CHUNKY

TRITSH – THIRST

CARTOON ANSWER:  THE MEDIEVAL TAVERN WAS OPEN DAILY UNTIL 12 A.M. AND SERVED CUSTOMERS – – 

HGGFAETTKINHNKTRI – “KNIGHT” AFTER “KNIGHT”

Good Morning, Everyone!     ⚔ KNIGHT TIME…IS THE RIGHT TIME

 

🎶KNIGHT and day you are the one…Only you beneath the moon or under the sun. Whether near to me or far, it’s no matter Darling where you are, I think of you..day and KNIGHT, KNIGHT and day…🎶

⚔ We’re at a Medieval Tavern, one FEMALE’s all we see
Four Knights and a bartender make the rest of the party,
The place serves as an OUTLET for them to quench their THIRST
We see two Knights have just arrived, two others got there first.
The men are fit, not CHUNKY, the owner sports a tie
The bar wench don’t look happy, she sits and rolls her eyes…
She says the men are regulars…do these guys HAGGLE her?
‘Cause she sure don’t seem thrilled right now to be there in the bar.
But here the Knights are gathered, like KITTENs turned to lions
I wonder if they play those darts to see who may be buyin’
It seems like it’s a nice place, there’s torches burning bright…
So check your swords and hoist a few…they’re here...KNIGHT AFTER KNIGHT!⚔

Sunday words. A little harder perhaps…If I had to pick JOUST one? Maybe THIRST, because with the SH together, the mind starts heading in that direction..Which today, would only get you lost…So, our cartoon. Today we find ourselves at a Medieval Tavern. Knights are shown drinking, while others are just arriving. The only serving wench, (which by the way, is a word I dislike intensely), is sitting at the bar, having a drink herself. She states that her “regulars” are coming. We have Sir Roger entering first, followed by Sir Amic. He makes pottery. Seated are Sir Cumference who’s gained some weight lately…He eats too much PI. And lastly, seated but not shown to us, is Sir Render, the quiet one, the one who hates to fight. Our question tells us that the tavern is open until 12 A.M., which is when morning begins. The Tavern served customers…”KNIGHT” AFTER “KNIGHT”! Jump on that horse…and knock down a KNIGHT! Great one, David! Ok, eye candy. The emblems on the Knights armors are interesting. A tree, a dragon, and a…? I have no idea! A non-descript shape of some sort. The forerunner to a Dart Board, with three knives protruding, is very clever. The torch sheds some light…But my choice today? Looking through the open door, there’s a Quarter Moon visible! It’s KNIGHT Time! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone. And is anyone else wondering that if they stayed open past mid-KNIGHT? …Would there be a SIR CHARGE? ⚔🙋🏻
