Mike, This one’s for you! 🥃
Good morning, everyone! Happy 100th Day! (Bipartisanship)
…5:14 AM, EDT. SI, NY, in the throes of a massive rain storm. Thunder, lightning, buckets of teeming rain thrashing against the windows. The lights flickering twice. Claps of rumbling thunder, deafening, strikes of lightning illuminating every room. I sit alone, coffee growing cold beside me, as I stare into…Oh, wait…Sorry, wrong page. This is Jumble Answers! HA-HA
Today, we’re given some choice words. Joint, (Jinto? What the heck is Jinto)?, Blink, Blink, PASS…Spruce, Mutter. Ok, back to number 2. As a Jumble purist, I always want to finish my words first. Staring, staring….Ah, Cynic. I should have recognized it immediately, I was called cynical just last night! (Please refer back to the 100 days greeting). This word was expertly scrambled for only 5 letters, don’t you think? To the solution: 13 letters; as I’m writing them down, I look at the cartoon: the cop reciting a poem, there’s a J….(we don’t see a lot of J’s)… Poetic Justice! How clever is that? Excellent words, excellent answer! The cartoon. Blue clothes, nondescript yellow car. Maybe someone out there may know what kind. I have a few male friends who always amaze me when it comes to cars. They’ll see one, and ..”Oh, ’74 Pontiac, turbo engine, four on the floor”, or, ’08 Cadillac, 4-speed automatic, 275 horse power”, or whatever, you get the gist. Go ahead, ask me: YOU: “So, what kinda car ‘dja get”? ME: “Um, blue”.
All in all, great puzzle for a Saturday morning. I didn’t have the greatest day y’day, felt like I kind of phoned the puzzle in, but things turned around last night. I bought some new shoes, the Mets won, and I took a stand. 😉 I may just quit therapy! LOL!!
Storms over, sun has risen. Let’s get out there and enjoy the day! Until tomorrow. 🙋🏻
