Jumble Answers for 04/17/2017

***UPDATE 9:02 am:  It looks like the online puzzle was a week ahead and that was the version I did this morning.  Here are the answers for the newspaper version.  Sorry for any spoilers! ***


















Good Monday morning my friends and welcome back to another week of Jumble fun!  Monday puzzles are usually a snap to complete and today’s game continued the trend.  The clue words were nothing to “SNEEZE” at though, with FORMAT giving me the most trouble followed by PLUME at a close second.  With all of the clue words solved, it was on to the baseball themed cartoon.  Just look at those luxury box seats and the folks enjoying some very swanky vittles!  I’m sure that was a day they won’t soon forget.  With only six letters to complete the pun, I’m almost positive that everyone was able to knock this one out of the ball park.  When I watch baseball games on television, I often see those luxury seats unfilled at the larger stadiums and it’s a shame.  Often times you’ll see the seats empty at the start of the game and near the last couple of innings they are nearly full.  Probably fans sneak down to get a little closer to the action!  I was trying to think of a city where my new favorite team the “Jumbles” or “Jumblers” hail from.  Jackson, Jersey City, Jacksonville, or Joliet are all that I can think of that start with J.  Perhaps they can be the worlds first online baseball team and we’ll call them the Jumble Answer Jumblers!  Have a great day and remember to always swing for the fences.  😎⚾️👍🏻

  1. Hi Mike, good morning. How’re you? Barbara’s right. This puzzle was on line at the site you use, but I noticed it said 4/24. Today’s paper is a tennis themed puzzle. For some reason it’s on the Seattle Times website. I had my post ready since 5:30! LOL. 🙋🏻

  2. Good morning. Waiting patiently for you to post and we have completely different words. I was so proud that it was a typical Monday puzzle and there was no problem at all. Take care. See you tomorrow.

    • Hi Paul, good morning. Saw your post from last night. Been there, done that! I’m always forgetting something. But you’re right, they’re gonna love it at bocce! ! I joined in the games yday; didn’t do that great. I blame. It on the wind! LOL…But then in the midst of the 86 degree beautiful summer day, the rains came . Only lasted like 10 minutes, but washed out the court. We went back to eating!….Hope you have a good game! 🙋🏻

  3. Mike, yeah, 2 puzzles is a bonus! Since I only look on line after I’m done with it, I closed it right away! So we already know next Monday’s a bust! LOL. I’ll do my post anyway, but I was looking forward to matching our thoughts. Didn’t you mention being on vacation this week? 🙋🏻

  4. Good morning, Mike, good morning everyone. Happy Easter Monday. How was everyones’ Holiday? Mike, we’ve seen these words before, right? But it’s SPIN a while, and todays’ scrambles were good. Tiny pause at SLUSH, half a blink – (I think I’ll call it a tic) – for some reason double consonants always hit my eyes funny. Easy answer. The cartoons’ clues “spelled” it right out. Knowing there’d be a tennis term, SERVED was a given, and the Mom saying it was noon time TIEd up the rest. Guess we got a FREE PASS for a “🎶Monday, Monday🎶”… (Steve)? Wishing everyone a great day! 🎾 🙋🏻


  5. Hi! My newspaper & online Seattle Times puzzles were the same today; tennis. Easy Monday solve, cute cartoon. Mom’s dialog words of “noon” & “eat” gave us LUNCH.
    Mike, thanks for telling me about having fun at LegoLand and fun hiding Easter eggs yesterday. I thought you’d be gone by now but glad you aren’t. My first guess for a fun/warm place is Disney World in Florida. My second guess is Disney Land/Sea World/Knott’s Berry Farm & more in California. My third guess is Arizona with the Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, Painted Desert, Sedona, Tombstone, Scottsdale, the Phoenix/Glendale/Peoria area, and me. lol
    Enjoy your day!! See you tomorrow.

    • Good afternoon, Lelia! I won’t give away where we’re off to, but let me just say that one of those choices is correct. Maybe you should get your spare room ready just in case we do pop by! 😂😂😂
      I’ll try and post a few photos but I always find it difficult to do so when we’re having so much fun. Enjoy the rest of your day. Sunny and 70 here and I hope you’re getting some ☀️ as well.


  6. JOSH WEST on THE VOICE: (Mike, you could explain this so much better than I because App, Twitter, & Hashtag are Greek to me!!) Tonight, Monday, and tomorrow, The Voice will air for 2 hours each night. Tonight are Teams Blake & Alicia; tomorrow Teams Gwen & Adam. Josh, my adorable grandson, is still on Team Adam. Josh’s mom says there are 2 ways to vote & that in Arizona our voting time is 5-7 p.m. even though the show airs here at 7-9 p.m. at which time it will say “Voting Closed.” I don’t understand that. Also, I don’t have The Voice Official App or a Twitter account. The specific Twitter directions, which contain his hashtag, are: Set Twitter Account to Public@NBCThe Voice: #VoicePlayoffsJosh
    Enjoy & good luck if you try to vote and thank you!! P.S., with The Voice Official App, you get to vote 10 times!!

    • Oh no, Lelia! I got this too late and missed the show last night. I’ll definitely record tonight’s show and vote as much as I can. I hope I didn’t miss him if he was on last night… By the way, you did a SUPERB job of explaining the process — kudos to you. I don’t have time to scour YouTube this morning to see if he was on, but if he was, please let me know and I’ll post a link for everyone to enjoy. 😊
