UG TR PHO CHA = ROUGH PATCH
Good Morning, Everyone! 🎃 PETER, PETER…PUMPKIN NEED ‘ER 🎃
🎶 RAINMAKER, RAINMAKER...The sky is gray just by the touch of your hand, RAINMAKER, RAINMAKER...Make me some RAIN make all my CROPS GROW tall….RAINMAKER, RAINMAKER…The sky is gray, the ground is so hard, It’s been cracked by the sun…RAINMAKER, you know my work’s never done…🎶 “Rainmaker” – Traffic 1971
🎃 Grab a TIGER by the tail, this farmer’s facing ruin…
He’ll LUNGE at what he can salvage, but things aren’t looking boon.
What is the CHANCE he’ll see a profit coming from this crop?
The drought resulted in his being faced with autumns’ flop.
His PONCHO hangs upon the hook, he didn’t make much use,
The rain was sparse and now he looks at Pumpkins ruined, profuse.
Despite the dire looks of things, the pumpkins so deflated,
We see his wife encourage him, to keep his fears abated…
But Halloween’s upon us…Think a break this guy can catch?
It doesn’t look too promising…it’s really a ROUGH PATCH 🎃
Our words today, are all transPLANTS we’ve SEED before…PONCHO, the oldest, was last here on March 28th of 2016…but before that, it was May 28th of 2014! How’s that for an oldie but GOURDie? But it was CHANCE, on this past November 13th that PRODUCED the most trouble, anagrammed as HECCNA. It could have been the end “A” that caused the confusion, so I’m thinking today’s solution will be an easier go of it…On to our cartoon…Today we find ourselves out on an open field, at a PUMPKIN PATCH, where a farmer, GOURDON, is lamenting the demise of his Country PUMPKINS, due to a DROUGHT. His wife, AUTUMN stands by his side, (looking GOURDgeous, I may add), trying her best to reassure him that they’ll get through the shortFALL… Although from the look on GOURDON’s face, it’s pretty obvious that he’s not SEEDing it. He’s worried about the HALLOWEEN sales, and the money he won’t be making. With winter coming and the bills that CROP up, you can understand his SQUASHed hopes…Lets face it, Folks, this is no PULP Fiction…So, in answer to our question…The PUMPKIN Farmer is going through a…ROUGH PATCH! Good one, David! SMASHING pun…without a DROUGHT!
Ok, eye candy. All to see besides our couple, and the CROP BUSTERS strewn all around, are the green of the ground, and black-silhouetted FOLIAGE along the back. It’s a pretty CUT and DRY panel…GOURDON’s sporting a serious 5 o’clock shadow…Either that, or it’s a SPARSE attempt at a beard. Hmm…Can this guy GROW anything? AUTUMN looks just fine, in a chic brown head scarf to match her top…I’ll LEAF her alone…SOW, what should I PICK? If you look real closely at GOURDON’s hat? On the white front panel, there’s an image of a smiling JACK-O’-LANTERN, and above it reads..Jack-O-…but we can’t SEED the rest. Poor Guy, he was so ready to HARVEST. Classic case of the spirit is willing, but the FLESH is weak…So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And try to CARVE out a little time for yourself today! Life is GOURD…Enjoy! 🎃🙋🏻
