  1. Good morning, Mike. Missed you y’day. Good morning Everyone. πŸ‡ Happy Kentucky Derby Day! πŸ‡
    RACED through the words at record SPEED . I thought, “I won’t be doing this FURLONG”! But then, I get REINed in a little BIT when it came to the answer. RODE down the letters, and it took me about 2 MINUTES to get the solve. Saw take, the only word to go with snatcher and caught, and got the rest. But once again,I’m taking it in STRIDE that the puzzle doesn’t coincide with the theme of the day. Maybe PURSE? It just left me YEARLING for more! Am I mistaken, or did we have ‘day appropriate’ puzzles in the past? Can anyone FILLY me in here? So, today’s the Derby…Big hats, big drinks, and oh yes, the horses.🎢🎢 “I got the horse right here, the name is Paul Revere, And here’s a guy that says if all weather’s clear…Can Do, Can Do….” 🎢🎢 Guys and Dolls…they’ll all be out there today! I can’t wait! And so, Mint Julep in hand, I wish us all a Can Do , Run For The Roses kind of day! And Sue,…this one’s for you! πŸΉπŸΉπŸ™‹πŸ»

      • HI Mike. No thanks necessary. I think you can tell by now that I’m willing to pinch hit for you anytime! As for my Mets, they really do never cease to amaze! Scrappy second string pulls off such a beautiful save. Sweeeeeeeeet! IDint get me wrong, I love the long ball, but for me, baseballs always been about the base hits. I love having my bases loaded! My Father always taught us,,,”Don’t show off, just get on base”! And that sage advice wasn’t just for baseball! A thought about HALVE. Very strange word, because the usage is 2 HALVES make a whole, but the word is plural. But then we say, to make a whole, you take HALF and HALF. So the word HALVE itself is seldom seen. Just sayin’. I’m off to the races….and running behind! No pun intended. Hope all went well y’day, and that you have a great day! πŸ‡πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Thanks Angela, trying to decide which horse likes sloppy/muddy track as that can changes the odds. Like a lot of locals, I don’t go to the track on Derby day; Kentucky Oaks which ran yesterday is more of a local thing and it is a day to honor breast and ovarian cancer survivors and most dress in pink. It touches the hearts of those of us that are survivors and honors those that lost the battle.Have a great weekend!! πŸ™‚

      • Sue, you are so welcome. Sloppy, muddy was my whole day so far. Soccer, baseball, soccer. And the whole time all I’m thinking is…’it’s so windy, should I go with the smaller brimmed hat later’? LOL..
        How did I not know about the symbolism of the Oaks. I read so much, yet I never knew this. It sounds wonderful. I’m going with Classis Empire, Always Dreaming and McCraken. W-P–S. I’m boxing some trifectas too, because I want to throw Hence in the mix, and like my baseball, I’m all for coveting the bases. I’m tooooooo excited! And my first Mint Julep of the day is for you! Hope you have a great race! πŸ‡β€οΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. Hey Sue, this one’s for you. (I’m a poet – who knew?)

    This may be a bit obscure, but it’s the only appropriate song
    that came to mind. What’s even better, is that the singer refers
    to the girl he’s singing to as ‘Little Susie’.

    🎡 “Well when you’re sitting back in your rose pink Cadillac
    Making bets on Kentucky Derby Day” 🎡

    • Hey Steve, I guess you are a “poet and don’t know it.” I found it funny that you referred to ‘Little Suzie’ as that is my nickname and you would hear ‘Wake Up Little Suzie’ playing if you called me on my cell . This past week ‘My Old Kentucky Home’ has been cold and rainy and not good for Derby activities, however, we manage to enjoy. BTW, I can’t think of the song with lyrics you wrote; I will be at a Derby party trying to figure out which horses like muddy tracks. Also, when ‘My Old Kentucky Home’ is sung, I will sing along and shed a few tears . Cheers and have a great weekend!! πŸ™‚

      • I used to think it was a little excessive that they had a 4- hour TV show for a 10-minute race. Now the coverage starts the previous Wednesday! I know how compulsive the horse racing people can be though;
        my grandfather was a supervisor of Parimutuel clerks at racetracks (including Yonkers Raceway, Angela)
        before computers when they had to calculate the odds and payouts in their heads! I still find that astonishing.

    • Yo Lefty…the Halves and the Halves not! I’m going forth,literally, on the way to Brooklyn. My heart favorite in the race, Always Dreaming has Brooklyn roots. And that name….like me! The owner has a restaurant in Brooklyn,where were ‘gonna run for those roses. And a seat,! HA… (Im not correcting any typos, I’m in the car, and it’s nit easy to text) As for the sinning no more,part, I’m ‘gonna use tge old..”Let he who is without…blah, blah..stone”. LOL. The weathers crappy here, I’m glad we’re doing an indoor thing this year. I spent 4 1/2,hours today in the chill and the mud, and I’m rewarding myself with Mint Juleps amok! I’m nervous about going against tradition and hedging my bets, because of the Brooklyn connection, and I’m hoping I won’t be crying in my bourbon! When I cry at My Okd Kentucky Home, I’m intending that to be my only cry for the day! I guess I owe you one for tge team snafu, I have to re-read it, couldn’t concentrate. (I’m just seeing all these…tges…what’s up with that)? Ok..Im approaching the gate….(Brooklyn has a lot of gates)! LOL…Rosary beads in the bag, pashmina wrapped, hat (hooefully) secure on head, I’m off.!!! Wish me luck. See ya at the finish line! (Oh, by the way, those lyrics? Talk about sinning no more….

  6. Hi Mike et al! Needed help with HALVE, but got the other 3 easily and knew the answer to the cartoon immediately. On the site I use when our newspaper is still in the yard, they have a button called β€œhint.” Today, after solving 3 clue words, I went back to the second word & clicked β€œhint” to see what would happen. It gave me the first letter β€œh.” I still had no idea, so clicked it again. This is fun! I clicked it for the third letter before seeing that it was HALVE.
    I like seeing the Kentucky Derby women’s hats. Oh, & the horses.
    Enjoy your Saturday!

    • Good afternoon, Lelia! I thought HALVE looked unusual when I solved it but it was the only word that I could come up with so I stuck with it. In regards to your book, I went on eBay to search for it and there are many people selling copies. The cheapest was $12.97 and the most expensive was $33.54! Enjoy the race and talk soon. 😊

Lelia, I don’t know how you feel about someone profiting off your work, but I would guess that you’re happy people are reading your book. I saw some copies being sold from the UK!

    • Lelia – Thank you for posting that! :-). I must tell you why that is so funny to me.
      I have a 1980’s version of a Jumble App – a little plastic self-contained handheld game (which I would love to post a picture of, but don’t know how) which produces a Jumble clue and then the four scrambled words, whose letters you move around with 2 buttons. But – it also has a “hint” button that works exactly as you describe!

      • Caroline, Thank you for purchasing my book. Even with a title like My Testimony, it is not religious or preachy, just 14 short stories about me, like the stuff I post here, and a quick read with only 80+ pages, but ever since I read Mike’s comments to me this morning I have been on the phone & sending e-mails to LifeRich to find out what is going on because I didn’t know it was on sale anywhere until I Googled my name not too long ago. I had it self-published, which they used to call Vanity Press, and bought a bunch of copies to give to family & friends. I haven’t sold any of my copies. My husband has an expensive hobby of feeding every wild bird, rabbit, etc. that comes into our yard, and my hobby is giving away copies of my book. If yours does nor arrive, let me know and we will try to figure out how I could send you one. Thanks again, and I hope you like it.
        P.S., The price on the back of the book is $8.99 but when I ordered one from Barnes and Nobel just to see how much the postage & handling would be, how long it would take for it to arrive, and whether or not it arrived in great condition, the total was somewhere in the neighborhood of $15. I sincerely hope you didn’t pay more than that. After reading Mike’s comments, I Googled my name again, and they had my book listed for $8.99 and the E-book for only $3.99.

        Don’t worry, I found a copy with a low mailing cost -$13.11 total. Thanks so much for your offer. If you don’t get a copyright, maybe this is what happens. I think you and your husband have wonderful hobbies.

  7. Good afternoon. Kept checking and couldn’t find your post. Finally I realized my youngest married couple had book marked it for me. Today’s puzzle was a slam dunk. Only took an extra minute for halve. Even my friend had no problem solving both parts. Till tomorrow stay well.

  8. Mike and Jeff – The most interesting part of the “Giant Jumble Event” to me would be the “History of Jumble”. When Jeff and Dave took over, it was immediately obvious to me that something had changed, because the drawings went from a 1930’s-40’s “New Yorker” style to something more modern and cartoon-y (There’s nothing wrong with that, Jeff!). But then ever since, I’ve looked all over and never seen a story about the change or the reasons for it. (Did the old guys die? or retire? Syndicate got sold?). Still wondering.
