CARTOON ANSWER: EVERYONE WHO SAW THE MOON LANDING ON TV THOUGHT IT WAS – – –
DOIL FWR SHU TOTO = OUT OF THIS WORLD
Good Morning, Everyone! 🎶FLY ME TO THE MOON🎶
🎶 You’re clear OUT OF THIS WORLD...When I’m looking at you. I hear OUT OF THIS WORLD…The music that no mortal ever knew…I cry, OUT OF THIS WORLD….If you said we were through…So let me fly OUT OF THIS WORLD, and spend the next eternity or two… with you…Clear OUT OF THIS WORLD...Clear OUT OF THIS WORLD, Clear OUT OF THIS WORLD…🎶 “Out of This World” – Mel Torme 1988
🌗 The date July the 20th, of 1969… Americans are all glued to TV…
My house was packed as we all sat, no FEWER than thirty…
The night was hot, one felt as if a SHROUD was ‘oer the room,
The AC cranked, but nervousness did all but quite consume.
We first had dined on pasta, a TOMATO sauce divine…
We toasted what was coming with the best of Grandpa’s wine…
Like the lace stitch of a DOILY, my mind was all entwined,
So scared was I for Armstrong…Who knew what he might find?
And then we saw it happen, the Moon Landing unfurled…
And I’ll never forget thinking…This is just OUT OF THIS WORLD…🌗
With today’s words being all Sweet Repeats, we end our week on a HIGH note. With SHROUD being the oldest of the group, last appearing on September 1st, 2016, I think it may also be the stumper…If for no other reason than that it’s a word rarely seen or spoken in everyday conversation, and therefore not easily recognizable…I also noted that two of our words each have four letters being used for the solution, one from a five letter word, the other a six. Is this HISTORY being made? I’d have to check…Our cartoon: Today we find ourselves in any living room across America, as we watch the first MOON LANDING on July 20th, 1969. Jeff’s showing us a couple, and two children. I’m want to say that it’s parents and their children, but for some reason, the man and woman appear to be “slightly” older, Grandparents perhaps. But for the sake of the SPACE here, we’ll go with it as a family unit. The children are being told by the Father that they’re watching History being made, while they themselves are asking childish questions such as: “Can I see them out the window”, and “Where are the aliens”. So, with our question asking what did everyone think this Moon Landing was? It was...OUT OF THIS WORLD! Well done, David! You’ve LANDED another good one!
Ok, eye candy. The little boy is holding a toy replica of APOLLO 11. We see a TV, most likely Black and White, rabbIt ears intact, showing NEIL ARMSTRONG standing on the Moons’ surface, as he plants the American Flag. And the couple is dressed rather formally for a hot summer night at home…But what did it for me? If you look real closely, you’ll see that the woman is shown with her left hand grasping her throat, and a tear falling from her eye...With that single tear, Jeff’s managed to truly sum it all up…It was scary, it was exhilarating, it was like nothing we had ever seen before…And could there have been any CRATER detail? So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a great day, Everyone…And here’s to the PIONEERS of SPACE…🍷They truly took us OUT OF THIS WORLD! 🌗 🙋🏻
