Jumble Answers for 04/21/2017








Happy Friday everyone!  Here we stand at the precipice of the weekend, and I can’t wait to board the plane and jet to some place warm.  Before the fun begins, I have to conquer one last puzzle, so this is how it went.  The first two clue words came instantly, with STIGMA causing me to stumble for a few seconds.  After that, CANOPY came just as fast as the first two words and I arrived at the cartoon.  I didn’t have a guess for the final solution (and didn’t feel like spending too much time on it either) so I wrote out all the clue letters.  It was an instant solve after seeing MOON in the letter layout leaving a great pun to end the week.  There weren’t any hidden details in the cartoon that I could find, but the black background really made the astronauts pop.  The dialogue reminded me of my youth in the 80’s and everyone was talking about how flying cars would be everywhere but here we are and I haven’t seen one yet.  Maybe by 2030 — or sooner.

This is my last post for a week and Angela from our forum has decided to take over the reigns in my absence.  It’ll be fun to read someone else’s take on the puzzle and I wish her the best of luck.  I’ll be thinking of everyone while I’m on the beach, toes deep in the warm sand and sipping umbrella drinks.  See you all bright and early on May 1st!!!  ๐Ÿ˜Žโœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿโ˜€๏ธ

  1. Good morning, Mike, good morning Music fans everywhere…
    ๐ŸŽถ”Fly Me To The Moon”๐ŸŽถ. Oh wait, sorry, that was y’day puzzle! Start again….
    Good morning everyone, guess I’m a little SPACED out!
    Easy, EASY, today. Can’t give it a breezy, because of CANOPY. 6 letters, 4 consonants, my left brain always thinks 2 syllables. Had to blink 3x’s for the 3 syllables! The answer: Knowing i needed MOONS, it came to me as soon as I wrote the letters. AOY from Canopy, saw the G, the phrase just it LANDed in my lap. So, what’s the biggest problem when planning a Space Party? You always need to PLANET so far in advance!
    (BA-BOOM)! Hoping your day is out of this world….๐Ÿš€ ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

    • Hey Mike, that was just the post I had ready from earlier. In response to yours, you know what hit me funny in the drawing? Next to the astronaut on the left? That footprint? It actually looks like one of your EGGS! As for the elephant in the room, like I said the other day, this must be what auditioning for “Wheel of Fortune” feels like. The pressure’s relentless! And again, your shoes cannot be filled. I can’t think of it as taking over the reins either; let’s look at it as hoping I can keep the horse on the track! I just hope the puzzle shows up here t’row!
      Enjoy your vacation, you will be sorely missed! ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

        • Ha! A heel….You prob didnt catch it because you’re already in vaca mode! (I do think he did it for you)! ๐Ÿ‘ž ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

    Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
    Life is good today. Life is good today.
    Well, the plane touched down just about 3 oclock
    And the citys still on my mind
    Bikinis and palm trees danced in my head
    I was still in the baggage line
    Concrete and cars are there own prison bars like this life Im living in
    But the plane brought me farther.
    Im surrounded by water
    And Im not going back again

    I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
    Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
    Life is good today. Life is good today.

    Adios and vaya con dios
    Yeah Im leaving GA
    And if it werent for tequila and pretty senoritas
    Id have no reason to stay
    Adios and vaya con dios
    Yeah Im leaving GA
    Gonna lay in the hot sun and roll a big fat one
    And grab my guitar and play

    Four days flew by like a drunk Friday night as the summer drew to an
    They cant believe that I just couldnt leave
    And I bid adieu to my friends
    Because my bartender shes from the islands
    Her bodys been kissed by the sun
    And coconut replaces the smell of the bar and I dont know if its her or
    the rum

    I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
    Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
    Life is good today. Life is good today.

    Not a worry in the world a PBR on the way
    Life is good today. Life is good today.

      • Mike, ๐ŸŽถ Are you humming it yet?๐ŸŽถ Best beach song ever! It just makes you smile. Both versions sooooo good! Jimmy Buffets’ coming to Long Island, NY in August. One of those tickets better have my name on it! The clocks’ ticking….Have the best time…๐ŸŒž๐ŸŠ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

      • Steve, Wait a minute, wait a minute..there’s a song that got by you? Bizarro World! LOL.
        Enjoy your day! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

      • Hey Steve, have you listened to it yet? Both versions? How’d you miss this one? Right up there on my playlist. I know you’re a Rocker, but this is pure gold. I think Key West, even tho he’s in Mexico. Every time we go down there, this is all I want to hear. My best lines?…๐ŸŽถ “Becsuse my bartender she’s from the Islands, Her bodys’ kissed by the sun; And coconut replaces the smell of the bar, I dont know if it’s her or the rum”๐ŸŽถ Coconut ๐ŸŒดRum! It don’t get any bettet than this! Bet it becomes one of your favorites! Hats off to Harry! (With a nod to Del Shannon)! ๐Ÿน

      • Angela, I know that what I don’t know about music is vast. If I stick to classic rock from about the 50′ s to the 80’s, then maybe I’m half-vast ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Hey Steve, HALF-MAST! !! Good one! Pun of the Day! But, did you Google the song? And sorry for the typos in that last post. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปm

        • Steve…Jeez. Talk about typos today! HALF- VAST!!! Embarrassing! LOL….Staying in tonight, so I’m thinking., I hope the Met game is over before 20/20 starts. (Although the way they’ve been playing…the game might be over before it’s over). Always loved Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner…๐ŸŽถHe’s still Rock and Roll to me!” ๐ŸŽถ …๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

      • Mike watching the Red Sox, me watching the Bruins (on tape-delay), both going “Ugh!”. A true New England fan experience — although not so much now as when I was growing up there.

        • I grew up losing Steve. Things have changed as you know in the past 10 years. OTHING will top that Super Bowl win though. Watching the Bruins right now… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

          • Mike-Steve : Gentlemen, Misery loves company. Losses all around. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  3. Had the puzzle and all words but STIGMA solved in a snap. Had to back my way into it; GAM, no – MAG, no – GMA, head slap! Spent 2/3 of my time doing the puzzle today on that one word.

  4. I thought they were pulling another fast one when moon was obvious but did not fit the first answer word. Took me a minute to put an S on it and solve. Have a nice vacation!

  5. Like most of you, I had no trouble with today’s puzzle. Mike, have a safe and fun filled vacation.๐Ÿ„๐Ÿน๐ŸŒž

  6. Happy vacation, Mike!

    I love the official NASA garden shovel that looks like they picked it up at the local hardware store on the way to the launchpad.

  7. Good afternoon. I kept checking my phone and not seeing the jumble or the blog (whatever it’s called) so I went into the phone and somehow found it. First off. Have a great vacation. Angelia will give you pride in knowing that you left it in good hands. Saw the voice that I recorded and without blowing smoke, thought Josh should have been one of them saved. I don’t watch the show but was hoping since we all had someone we could root for that and we all could share in your joy. To the puzzle. Only had trouble with stigma. It took awhile to get and we had it before. Cartoon answer was an immediate solve. Until tomorrow stay well

    • I hope you bookmarked the site so you can find it easier in the future, Paul. We’d hate to lose you! Have a great weekend, my friend. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Paul, Thank you, kind Sir for your vote of confidence. I told Mike that’s my main concern also, doing him proud. I appreciate the thought. Have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  8. Hi! With newspaper in the yard, I did the online puzzle which accepted MOON as the first word and MAN as the last word, leaving me with 5 letters that won’t make a word that makes sense. Glad I gave up and came here for HELP.
    Mike, I wish you a very Happy Holiday, a nice break from cold weather, and lots of precious family fun-time together that will put wonderful memories in your mind & in your heart.
