Jumble Answers for 04/19/2017

VADIO = AVOID

WORLG = GROWL

LIFTEL = FILLET

VONBIE = BOVINE

CARTOON ANSWER:

WITH WINTER OVER, SPRING WAS THIS TO THE TREES.

ARLFEE = (A) “RE-LEAF”

Good morning everyone and happy Wednesday!  The first two clue words were a snap to figure out, leaving me with two words that just wouldn’t come into focus.  I figured out BOVINE after a few seconds of thinking about it but I had to break out my notepad to re-jumble FILLET a couple of times before it gave itself up.  With all of the clue words solved, I started the solve on the 6-letter solution.  No answer came to mind, so I wrote out my letters and found LEAF instantly and RE was left for the finish.  A very timely pun for this time of year!  The weather here today is overcast and chilly so I left the pellet stove on to keep some warmth in the house.  Enjoy your Wednesday and I’ll see you tomorrow.  πŸ˜€

  1. Good afternoon Mike, good afternoon, everyone. WILLOW look at this! So much green! Mike, I can hear you saying…”No truer words were ever spoken!” LOL…One, two, TREE, easy, breezy puzzle. YEW can’t really see that much in the way of graphics today; (maybe Jeff feeling he gave us so much y’day, that it’d be OAKkay). And I might be going out on a LIMB here, but does the tree on the left look Male, and the right, Female? Something about those eyes, those lips? Squirrels, an acorn…a sole tulip sprouting. Nothing too exTREEm. The words? Great scrambles, but easy. Mike, have we seen FILLET before? Tricky one there, right, because I think most of us use the spelling FILET. ToMAYto, toMAHto? Oh wait, that’s not the right analogy, is it? ….I should just LEAF this alone…Hope everyone has a great day, and May the FOREST be with you…🌷 πŸ™‹πŸ»

      For a minute, I thought everyone had heard you were going to be the guest moderator and ran away in fear πŸ™‚

      Had trouble with all words except AVOID and the answer. Lots of G’s, W’s and V’s.

      • Hi Mike. Crazy, busy day. It turned cold back here also., heat on, heat off. My Email address… Mike, how would I get that to you without posting it here? I’m too uncomfortable putting it on a public forum like this. I know you can understand; with 750 people? Everyone here is telling me it’s unwise, and it does unnerve me. Is there any other way i can get it to you? 😟 πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. Hi All. I figured that leaf had to be in the answer but like Mike had to take out pad and pencil to figure out fillet. I too thought it was spelled filet. Leila, I’m so sorry that Josh didn’t prevail on “The Voice” last night. I thought for sure that Adam would save him. For what it is worth I thought his performance was far superior to the fellow that Adam chose. However, the voting was closed before the program aired on the west coast so we couldn’t vote. Hopefully just the chance to appear on the program will open up many new opportunities for him.

    • Hi Caroline. Totally enjoyed reading this. I’ve come across talk of Dyngus Day over the years, but never had real information. That’s a lot of partying!’ Tradition’s a good thing, no matter how we keep it, right? Thank you for the link. I so love learning about new things. And FILLET. I have to look into it when I get a chance. It’s bugging me! Have a great night. πŸΊπŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. Lelia, really felt Josh deserved to stay last night and disappointed that he had to go. He has a great voice, good looks, hair to die for and youth going for him. I feel he has a bright future and Josh West will see his dreams come true! Keep the faith!πŸŽΌπŸ˜‡

  4. Hi Steve, good afternoon. I didn’t want to go back and forth between screens, so I’m answering you here on today’s posts. .I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Stan Freberg, before my time, but as soon as I opened the link, I was floored. First, because the old Capital label. I’m lucky to have about 100 78’s that belonged to my Father, and so many of them have that label. It’s been years since I’ve opened the case they’re in, it still makes me sad. But what a gold mine, right? And then, as soon as I heard the opening chords , “Just the names have been changed…” popped into my head! “I was dyin’ here!”‘ Unreal….I’m remembering so much of it , but I’m not sure of where or when. I listened to it twice, it’s hysterical! Did you know that Amazon Prime has all the original Dragnet episodes? Priceless! And so many catch phrases on the record. “Just the facts, Ma’am” , What’s a 412″? , and “What d’ya wanna make a federal case out of it”!?!, had me rolling. We still use those phrases; just last night one of my brothers said to me, “What’s a 412″? I wonder if we even know what we’re saying or where it came from. I have to ask them. I wish I had more time to discuss this with you, right now I can’t. And I have to get back to you on the festival, I was thinking the same thing, who are these people? But you, are a musical treasure trove! Major Kudos! And to get back to my…”Cause you slay me…” You were on the right track, think vintage TV.. Thanks again for all the links. Later. πŸŽΆπŸ™‹πŸ»

Ah, the fifties, when casual sexism and domestic violence were funny. (and yes, this time I *am* being sarcastic. How did I survive the 50’s.? Oh, I remember — “My life was saved by rock ‘n roll”).

      • Hey Steve, Yep, the Honeymooners. The episode with Bert and Rita. Alice and Trixie felt Ralph and Norton were a little too attentive to Rita, so Alice dresses like her the next night and comes on to Ralph. She feeds him that line and he answers, “And I’m calling Bellevue cause you’re nuts”! Ton of great one liners from that episode…”Leave it there, the cat’ll get it”, “He certainly is a trea…SURE” and the immortal, “Hamina…Hamina”! Just saw it the other night. Gets me every time! I guess you’re right, it was so politically incorrect, but God was it funny!

  5. Lelia, I know I still owe you a proper response, but I just want to take a moment to tell you how sorry I am about last night. I think Josh’s performance was amazing! I don’t follow the show, so I don’t get how it works, but it seemed like Adam was rushed in making a decision. I downloaded the App and had others do it also; we voted our hearts out. All I can say is that the talent and presence he possesses for a 17 year old, is off the charts. This can only be a stepping stone for him, the best is yet to come! Wish I had more time, I have to run. Be back later…πŸ™‹πŸ»

  6. Lelia, I watched the Voice last night and was heartbroken for Josh! I thought he had an amazing performance and was sure to make it through. I don’t know if you’ve spoken to him or not, but please let him know that we were all pulling for him and I voted all 10 times just for him. He’s an amazing talent and I’m sure another opportunity is just around the corner. I hope he cherishes your scrapbook of his journey and make sure to add quite a few blank pages as the best is yet to come and you’ll be filling them in soon. 😊

  7. Hi, Mike!! I slept until after 10 a.m. so after quickly doing the Jumble was afraid that I would not get to be the first to say,”Wow, Mike! This puzzle was just for you!!!” I mentioned last week that Spring is a RELIEF to you because of no more stocking up of pellets, shoveling “you know what,” and storms with heavy wind. Now we know that the trees consider Spring to be a time of RE-LEAF, too. Cute.
    Sorry you’re having a little un-spring-like weather today, but…just 2 more days!! I am going to thank everyone now for their votes & kind words for Josh, including the wonderful ones I just read from you, and then I am going to write to you again after that.

  8. Josh West, now finished with The Voice:
    Betty, I, too, thought that Adam would save Josh, and I loved hearing you say it. Thank you for your words of praise and hoping for new opportunities.
    Sue, thank you for more of your enthusiastic words for Josh, including the ones about his hair that always make me smile. I agree that he has a bright future.
    Angela, it seemed to me, also, that Adam made a rushed decision. Thanks for your compliments about Josh and for all your votes.
    Mike, I can’t thank you enough for all your encouraging words and space allowed on your site for others to join in wishing the best for our youngest one on his first big adventure. Your words will be cherished forever.
    Now me: For about 30 minutes last night, I sat there feeling a little stunned, thinking about the first high note being a little off, wishing Adam had asked him to sing a different song, and wishing Adam had saved him. This morning I am happy that our little one is coming home today, could not be more proud of him even if he had won the whole thing, and am thinking some of the exact things that you generous ones have just said to me.
    Mike, “He’s an amazing talent and I’m sure another opportunity is just around the corner.”
    Betty, “Hopefully just the chance to appear on the program will open up many new opportunities for him.”
    Sue, “I feel he has a bright future and Josh West will see his dreams come true!”
    These words will be in our hearts forever! Enjoy your day! See you tomorrow.

  9. Late good afternoon. Thought the words were easy except for bovine. The cartoon answer was a snap. Didn’t get to see josh sing but caught the end of the show and thought that Josh would be saved. My friends husband told me he voted ten times for him. So sorry than it ended for him,but you should be proud to even have a relative on the show. Till tomorrow stay well

  10. I’m with both of you! Don’t know what they’re doing because of voting themselves out of a real treasure. And, Betty, thanks for reminding me to get that job done of deleting “series recording.” No hard feelings toward them, however, because our young one greatly enjoyed the ride and is now home safe & sound.

  11. Watched The Voice last night. I, too, was sorry to see the results and felt that the end of the show was very rushed, not allowing Adam to give due consideration to his decision. Since this is a singing competition, I wish that the producers would dispense with the overwrought arrangements and let these people sing rather than overshadowing them with heavy instrumentation and loud backup singers. Lelia, it seems to me that Josh fell victim to the drive to push these kids in these overproduced performances.

    Easy puzzle today. Had solution before words and only paused a bit on fillet due to the double l. Had it all done in 50 seconds.

  12. John, back to your one-minute or less solves. I love hearing about them. I, however, have gone over to Mike & Rita’s camp to take my time.
    Oh, how I agree with you that Adam was rushed, the music was overpowering, and the backup singers were a huge detriment, a nuisance, and completely unnecessary as well as too loud. In spite of all that, I’m glad he got to have this experience while he’s still so young and can decide in his own mind what to think or do with it. Thanks for writing.

  13. Mike, when I decided to make a guess, I put LOL because of including “me” in the same list as The Grand Canyon. All joking aside, we have 3 guest bedrooms and 2 guest bathrooms that are ready for guests. I know that you have your vacation time all planned out, but if by some miracle you were to find time to visit or call, meeting you and your family would be a dream come true for me. If you called from Scottsdale or somewhere else close, before eating dinner out, I would love to join you & pick up the tab, which I would prefer to be a huge one for my treat. Enough of my dreams. I don’t even know the best way to tell you my address & phone numbers. Thanks for listening. Have fun, buy a t-shirt or pretty post cards, and think of me.

    • Good evening, Lelia! Your offer to take us in was very kind and generous and I know you would in a heartbeat. About 15 years ago, I flew out to Vegas with my wife (girlfriend at the time). I’m not much of a gambler so we ended up renting a car and driving out to the Grand Canyon. It was a wonderful and truly breathtaking experience that I’ll never forget. I haven’t been back your way since then and who knows, maybe someday we’ll make our way back. I have so much to do before we leave that I find it more difficult to post on time so I hope you and everyone else understands. I’m glad you let us know that Josh is back home and surrounded by his loving family. He will no doubt need you all as he begins to process his experience. Enjoy your evening and see you tomorrow. I hope Jerry is doing well also. 😊
