Jumble Answers for 04/23/2017











Mike, This one’s for you! ๐Ÿธ

Good morning, everyone! ๐Ÿ“š Happy World Book Day! ๐Ÿ“š

Sorry this is a little late, did Church first; the whole time thinking: I’m SADDLEd with this responsibility! ย LOL. ย Great Sunday puzzle. Glanced at it all with UnBRIDLED enthusiasm, saw perhaps a tiny BIT of a challenge, but there’ll be no NEIGHsayers amongst us! And…they’re OFF…

EXTENT, check. AUBURN, check. FINALE, check. MATTOO, (Matt, who? is in my head), but then, check. (But, it’s been like what? 20 something years now, and I still can’t look at Potato or Tomato, without Dan Quayle popping into my head…I digress). ORIGIN – Blink- Ironing? Only 1 N, Ironic, No C; ย Ah, ORIGIN, check. And, lastly, VISUAL..pause. Wrote it down, check. ย We’re in the Homestretch. ย The Answer: A lot of letters here. Wrote them all down, all the while telling myself, ‘Don’t even think Horse…’.Ok, I’m seeing horses and stables…BA-BOOM. STABLE, and then I HERD the phrase in my head. Saw the V, and knew I was on the right TRACK. 11 letter word! Not all that ๐ŸŽถ Easy Like Sunday Morning ๐ŸŽถ ย For those of us without the color advantage: Green grass, brown horse. ย And the name RUFF FARMS? I have no idea, maybe someone can BALE me out?

So, that’s all she RODE. Enjoy your Sunday, and, let’s Make America Smart again..Take a book to lunch! Until tomorrow. ๐Ÿด ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  1. Angela, you did a magnificent job of today’s blog! I gave up on solving the puzzle, came here, and enjoyed your answers. Great news. After only 2 days on his antibiotic, my husband wants to eat lunch with our family today at the Mex. restaurant. Actually, it’s very close to our house, one does not have to dress up, we eat there so often it’s as comfortable to us as eating in our own dining room, and I am such a huge tipper we get the royal treatment.
    Enjoy your day! Get more sleep tonight! See you tomorrow.

    • Thanks for sharing such good news with us. Such a relief when family members feel better.

  2. Good morning, Lelia! Thank you, you’re too kind! I was worrying about posting late, I truly have my nights and days mixed up! I do feel a little guilty about being distracted at Mass though, Mea culpa! So happy to hear your husbands doing better. (I saw his name is Jerry, right? I’d like to address him as such). So happy Jerry’s able to join in the festivities! It’s so nice to have a place “where everybody knows your name”, isn’t it? Being welcomed is a great feeling. Hoping you and yours have a wonderful outing, Buon Appetito! Oh wait. Mexican restaurant? I wish you Buen Provecho! Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  3. Pretty easy puzzle this morning, with the exception of visual. For some reason, the lengthy puzzle answer popped right out for me. Off to scrape paint off of the floor in the laundry room. (This project is so long in the tooth and I am SO unmotivated!)

    • Good morning, John. Visual may end up being the NAG of the day. Remains to be seen. As for your floor? “Got nothin” as we’d say in Brooklyn. Good luck with that! Enjoy the day in spite of it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  4. No problem with the clue words today but the cartoon took me a bit longer as I had “neighborhood” stuck in my head. All of a sudden saw stable and that did it. It’s sunny and breezy here today. Happy Sunday everyone.

    • Hi. Betty. It just takes that one word that gets in your head to throw it all off, right? Weathers the same here. Nice! Enjoy your day. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  5. Answer totally stumped me today. And auburn, origin and visual took me a long time to solve. You’re riding high, Angela.

    • ๐ŸŽถSweet Caroline๐ŸŽถ Thank you so much! I love the imagery! ๐Ÿ‡You may very well take “Pun of the Day”. How fitting…๐ŸŽถ”Riding high in APRIL”๐ŸŽถ, uh-oh) “Shot down in May”! LOL Not, NEIGH! ODDS are Visual is “looking” like the toughest of today’s words. Still early though, the windows are still open! As to the answer, is was an intimidating collection of letters, that’s for sure. Wishing you a great day. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  6. It’s amazing how fast you can finish the puzzle when you get the words wrong. DUH.

    Got the words except for Visual. Saw the answer right away and worked backwards given the S and V. Realized that IRONING couldn’t be right because the answer needed an O, in addition to having 7 letters (did I mention DUH!?). So got origin, then realized that Finial was wrong and it was actually Finale.

    I really have to slow down and check these more carefully. But it’s still fun.

    Great summary today, Angela.

    • Hey Steve. Yea, Finale. I went to school with the Finale brothers! And I do think Visual will end up being the odds on favorite. But you’re killin’ me here: I give you Lionel Ritchie, Neil Diamond, Sinatra, even a Cheers shout out…and…? Were you the one drinking the Margaritas? HA! Did the emails come through? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

      • Hey, it’s still early in the day for me — too much pressure on a Sunday! :-). But about the lyrics yesterday in “Toes”, check out this Wikipedia entry complete with blue Capitol record label:


        Oh — I think I see why I wasn’t getting email notices yesterday and it was mostly my fault — didn’t correctly respond to the ‘confirm follow’ email I got — although as you said, this toy doesn’t come with instructions or a user manual. Cheers! indeed.

        • LOL. I was just breaking your shoes! I’m annoyed that everyone went to the Car Show and I drew the short straw! So I’m stuck house sitting, or dog sitting, (cause I don’t want the dog shedding all over my house) I’m douse sitting! I have to hear “You don’t drive”…HUH? I don’t play baseball either, but I still watch the game, no? And it’s the last day…Whatever. Just venting! LOL. But, you have to admit, I did offer up plethora of ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽถ today! A virtual Name That Tune! Anyway. Is this a 45? ‘Cause if it is, I have this. Besides the 78’s, I have all of my Fathers’ 45’s and 33’1/3’s. I’m lucky, I know. And, God, I love this Capitol label! Weird! The emails. You know I had told Steve about that; that I had to do the confirm thing every day. Or sign up for an account. Seems wrong; not everyone wants their Email address linked up to additional accounts, right? Ok..,Mets not on until tonight..maybe I’ll try to watch the Jenner thing from 20/20 for the 3rd time. Hope it’s worth it. Enjoy your day. Later. ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

        • Correction: * Told Mike about that …Jeez, how soon we forget! LOL ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

      • Hey Angela, Where did everybody go today — I guess they have actual lives besides Jumble. For you stuck housesitting (and forget the Mets, Go Rangers!):

        I ride my bike, I roller skate, don’t drive no car
        Don’t go too fast, but I go pretty far
        For somebody who don’t drive I been all round the world
        Some people think I done all right for a girl

        • Brand New Key! Yea, life beyond Jumble is right! But damn, I really did want to go to the car show!

        • The Rangers are heart breakers too! I’m not getting too excited yet! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

      • A Pabst Blue Ribbon reference in a most unlikely place – a story about the opening of yacht/boating season on San Francisco Bay. Goodnight, Gracie:

        Miss 102โ€™s name comes with a sea story. Paul Kalmanovitz, a self-made millionaire, bought the old Maier Brewing Co. in Los Angeles, along with its best-selling brand, Brew 102. Brew 102 was not famous for quality, but it had one great advantage: It was cheap. So when Kalmanovitz took over the company, he bought a yacht to entertain bigwigs and called it Miss 102, an expensive yacht for a low-priced beer.
        Kalmanovitz later acquired several other brands โ€” Falstaff, Olympia, Lucky Lager, Pabst Blue Ribbon among them โ€” and moved to Tiburon. Miss 102 came with him. He died in 1987.
        Miss 102 has outlived him. But if there are guests aboard Miss 102 for any yachting expedition, Areias offers a toast with a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon in honor of the brewery king. Itโ€™s a tradition.
