Jumble Answers for 04/28/2017

TEHET = TEETH

SOKKI = KIOSK

VHIRET = THRIVE

TOTOPA = POTATO

 

CARTOON ANSWER: THE PATIENT WAS TOLD TO LOWER HIS BLOOD PRESSURE, AND HE:

TETKIOTHROATO = TOOK IT TO HEART

 

Mike, This one’s for you! 🍧

Good morning, everyone!            Finally…Friday!

After a few days of ABC words, today I blinked at Teeth. Could be something about the H encased in Es;  I don’t know, I just sat here and stared at it. No STALL at Kiosk, first saw rivet with Thrive, ( H again…What the H)?, and then Potato.

Today’s cartoon really didn’t offer that much of a clue, not graphically anyway. The dialogue was the key. Numbers, lowering blood pressure…Common phrase, “Took it to Heart”. Didn’t skip a beat…

HEARTfully wishing you all a good day…Until tomorrow. ❤️🙋🏻

    • Good morning, 🎶Sweet Caroline🎶 You’re 100% right! Of course the stethoscope is a clue! (And you’re kind enough to say “maybe”)…Could it be any more obvious? There it is: the ULTIMATE Heart clue! I’ll have to turn in my membership card after this! Having the worst morning. Went to Shop Rite at the ungodly hour of 5:30, and got stuck in the parking lot because of an accident. I should have submitted the puzzle before I left! Downhill ever since…Stethoscope! Be still my heart….LOL Thanks for the catch! ❤️Hearts and 🌷 Flowers to you! 🙋🏻

      • Hmmmm – I’m not so sure, because stethoscopes are used for lungs too, so maybe it’s only a clue in retrospect and it’s just standard cartoon doctor attire — or maybe I’m just way totally overthinking this!
        Yup, that’s it. Angela, I surely hope your day goes better than your morning. And my only pause was on ‘potato(e)’.

      • Hey Steve. Or maybe you’re just being nice and letting me down gently. Thanks, but ‘gotta record this as a swing and a miss. No, wait, erase that, I SAW the stethoscope; I got caught looking. Have a great day! 🙋🏻

      • I think Steve’s right that stethoscopes are so standard, they are hardly noticeable. Do doctors still carry them these days? I don’t go often.
        Sorry about your day. I think you’ll need a vacation when Mike gets back.

  1. Super easy puzzle today. Had the answer before the clue words and didn’t bat an eye on any of them! Basement project on hold today in lieu of raking moss and overseeding lawn. At least I’ll be outdoors!

    • Good morning, John. ‘Bat an eye’ would have been a good pun for Potato. I just said..Potato! I started some renovations here y’day, and I’m already gritting my ‘teeth. I keep hearing my Father’s voice saying, ” Stop thinking so much about looks, find a man that can change a damn light bulb”! HA…Kudos for all your home projects! Enjoy the outdoors! 🙋🏻

    • Hi Rita. Great way to start any day, Puzzles! Lively dialogue? To put it mildly! I told Mike I think I turned his sedate, cultured Jumble blog into an out of control free for all! Guess that’s what happens when a sweet New England man turns the reins over to an unbridled NY woman LOL Hope you have a great day ! 🙋🏻

      • That’s just like what quintessential Providence author H P Lovecraft found on his ill-fated and brief stay in NYC. His story ‘He’ is inspired by his reactions of culture shock.

      • Steve, Uh, Ouch! Comparing me to one of the worst areas in Brooklyn during the 1920s to boot? Glad this post didn’t come in before your other! Jeez, talk about Giveth and taketh away! Quintessentially wrong analogy here. I’m comparing me to a Summers day, I art more lovely and more temperate. ( It’s either I go with this or today I do end up in the papers)! 🙋🏻

      • Hi Rita. Yes, I was born in Gravesend, Brooklyn and spent most of my life there. I only left there to give my Mother a home of her own. We lived in apartments in Brooklyn. Private houses, but they weren’t our own. Flushing? My Mets! I spent a lot of time in Flushing! Late nights after the game, sitting in traffic all the way back to Brooklyn! I’m still in Brooklyn a lot, I have a bunch of cousins still there. I worked in the city too. (For some Reason, Brooklyn people always called NYC, the city). Did you also? I don’t know how long it’s been since you’ve been to the “city”, soooo much has changed. As I’m sure it has all over. Some good, some bad. Mostly good I think. You wouldn’t believe what a zoo it is now at Trump Tower. Such a waste of my tax dollars! LOL. Rita, my contractors have left for the day, I’m on the way out to eat and buy shoes, right now the only thing I think will save this day for me! LOL If you’d like, reply to me. I’d very much enjoy speaking with you more. 🙋🏻

  3. Good Morning Everyone. Easy one again today. I had the solution before looking at the clue words but did pause at teeth for some reason. Couldn’t seem to get the ees and the tees in the proper order. At any rate, with the puzzle completed I’m off to the gym. Gorgeous weekend predicted here in San Francisco so I’m looking forward to enjoying the sun. Happy Friday everyone.

  4. Hi, John, ditto to your solve. Words easy & cartoon answer came quickly as I took my first bite of breakfast before leaving for Jerry’s routine cholesterol check for his heart. That gave it away for me.
    I hope you saw my late comment apologizing for saying aspirator rather than respirator. Sometimes I dismiss my mistakes easily, but that one made me feel careless. However, maybe they would have to aspirate you if you did not wear the respirator to scrape paint. I’m grasping for straws. I’m going to let it go now because I already know that you forgave me. Enjoy the outdoors & fresh air!!

  5. Angela, thanks for your much appreciated comments to me yesterday. Not having said that for a few days reminds me of the old man whose wife told him to tell her that he loved her, that she wanted to hear it, and that she needed to hear it. He replied, “On our wedding day, I told you that I love you. If anything changes, I’ll let you know.” The first day that you did the blog for us, I told you that you did a fabulous job. If anything changes, I’ll let you know. LOL
    I have enjoyed reading the many compliments you have received this week and agree with all of them. They are true, just for you, to take to heart!!

      • Hey Steve. Do you both one better. 7:30 or so, middle aged having dinner. Phone keeps pinging (with all these posts hitting my email). No, it wasn’t on the table; it was on the chair next to me! LOL. Fool says. “Don’t even look at the ##** phone”! Sane one says, “Excuse me”? Foolish one then says, “You’re out of control with whatever this is”! Sane one gets up, takes my shoes, takes my drink.,,and takes Uber! Ba-Boom. Now the Mets are hitting, I’m sitting with Johnny Walker instead of said Fool, and for the first time today, all’s right with the world! Try and top that! 🙋🏻

  6. Steve, thanks for telling me about buying Elvis 45’s with your brother. What fun!! In high school I received only one dollar a week allowance. If a new Elvis 45 was out, I’d buy that. If not, I would go to the drug store’s magazine stand and buy the one that had either the most or best pictures of Elvis.
    No, no Janis Joplin. I sang Summertime at bedtime at a very slow tempo like a lullaby, softly & soothingly in my high voice but very muted.
    When I googled If You’re Looking for Trouble & listened to Elvis sing it, it sounded familiar but I don’t think I ever owned it. I mostly had 45’s and by the time he made that album, I had a daughter who was into Queen so I had to buy the sheet music for & learn to sing Bohemian Rhapsody with her. LOL

    • Wow! When you consider the lyrics, you were truly a dedicated parent to sing Bohemian Rhapsody with your daughter. That’s a long way from a church choir. Much like my mother putting up with Rock and Roll and the Beatles, although she actually seemed to like a lot of it. The only time she objected was when Paul sang, “Though she was born a long, long time ago, your mother should know.”

  7. I was hooked up on Kiosk too! Also, if I had paid attention to”the numbers looking better” I might have figured out it had to do with the heart. But kiosk got me .
