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? ⚔🙋🏻

FRUGIE = FIGURE

CARTOON ANSWER:

HE WAS GOING TO A BLACK-TIE EVENT AND NEEDED AN OUTFIT THAT WAS – – –

STLABUIE = SUITABLE


Good Tuesday morning everyone! The first two clue words were no trouble at all and instantly came into view. BURGER was jumbled very well, but with the anagram starting with GER, it took just a slight pause to suss it out. FIGURE is my pick for the most difficult anagram this morning, but it wasn’t overly challenging either. The fact that it had 3-vowels was probably why it took a few seconds longer than the rest. With all of my clue letters solved, it was time to move on to the cartoon.

Looking at Jeff’s panel, I first saw a husband and wife duo in a small boutique shop that caters to men’s clothing. The man is standing on a small raised platform with a tri-fold mirror surrounding him so he can easily view all angles of his new attire. Does this particular dressing room staple have a proper name? It escapes me if it does but I’m sure we’ve all seen or utilized one.

Reading the sentence and dialogue, the man asks his significant other if the clothing looks good on him. It was at this point that I discovered a unique detail in the cartoon that seems to indicate that these two people are not a couple. If you look closely at the woman’s neck, you’ll see a tailor’s tape measure hanging which leads me to believe that the woman is in fact an employee of the shop! You never know where Jeff is going to place such a small detail, and it’s what makes me such a big fan of his work.

The letter layout for the solve was a single word containing 8-letters. David started the anagram with an S and surprisingly had the UI coupled together a little further down. SUITABLE instantly came into view making this solve a no-brainer. Have a terrific Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow!
