  1. Good morning, Mike. Good morning, Everyone. ๐Ÿ‹ Happy National Lemonade Day! ๐Ÿ‹
    Didn’t we just have some of these words quite recently? IMPOSE, ADJUST, ORNERY? “It’s like deja vu all over again”! (RIP Yogi Berra)! SICKLE and THWART… now there’s two words we’ve all used at least, what? Once,in a lifetime? HONCHO? I got nothin’. Very eclectic group of words, but just the same, ๐ŸŽถ Easy like Sunday morning”. ๐ŸŽถ The solve, cute and quick. I’ll be back with the color commentary as soon as my paper gets here. Think the woman’s a blonde…with a purple shirt, for a change of pace? We’ll see.
    And just remember, …If life gives you MELONS…there’s a test..You may be dyslexic!
    Happy Sunday to us all….๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


  2. Good morning. Easy solve today for my friend and I. I had to catch up with her as I had phone calls and was behind. The cartoon answer was almost an instant solve. Looking forward to tomorrow’. Stay healthy.

  3. Got all the words. Then, ” Made a pass at her”? “Took a swipe at her?” “Took a shine to her”! Aha!

    Hey Angela – I missed a racetrack lyric yesterday. Don’t tear up those ticket stubs.

    So lately you’ve been hidin’, it was somewhere in the news
    And I’m still at these races with my ticket stubs and my blues
    And a voice calls out the numbers and it sometimes mentions mine
    And I feel like I’ve been workin’ overtime.
    Over time, I’ve lost my fire, over time
    Always playin’ one more hand for one more dime.
    Slowin’ down, I’m gettin’ tired,
    Slowin’ down
    And I envy you the valley that you’ve found.

    • Took a swipe at her is funny! Guys got a real lame pick up line,, right? There were a lot of stubs. Some deserved to be thrown out. Wasted money hedging so much. “Midway”. Classic. But whose? Or is it Who’s? Joni Mitchell, Bonnue Raitt, Judy Collins? Do I have the right song? The lyrics are Joni Mitchell’s right? The others covers? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


  4. Good morning Mike, and Everyone. That thin line between humor and sarcasm? I think I crossed it, albeit inadvertently. If I pushed the envelope, I want to apologize. To Friends of Bill, to dyslexics, to Uber drivers, to insomniacs, and to anyone else that I may have offended. The lack of sleep, combined with euphoria over the Derby, my unorthodoxed social situation, too many closely held celebrations, and the demon rum, may have resulted in a little bit of off the wall behavior. Hat in hand, here I stand.
    And yep, the woman’s a blonde, and her shirt is purple. Happy Sunday! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


    • This is easy for me to say because I’m not offended, but your apology is better than the airlines’, and you didn’t drag anyone down an aisle or punch a baby. There’s always that fine invisible line that I’ve tried not to cross in some my quoted song lyrics and jokes – it’s bound to happen.
      Don’t run away and hide on us just because of an honest and unintended mistake.

      • Lefty, Thanks. Yea, it all starts out funny, but than the lines can get easily blurred. 4:30 this morning I shouldn’t have been posting, and even though I thought the MELONS reference was funny at the time, it wasn’t cool. So the olive branch needed to be extended all around. Sleep can do wonders. Did you see about Matt Harvey? What the ….? Violation of team rules? Can they be more non-specific? And we need him.. My God, the disabled list alone is reading like War and Peace! Now the issue with Plawecki, this with Harvey…we need some serious public relations control. And speaking of baseball, I wasn’t aware of the Ca North-South hockey rivalry. So I need to look into it a little more. But your analogy with the Yankee win was all it took! Apologies are in order! LOL.. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


    • Honey you cannot insult a friend of Bill W by you getting drunk. They do not give rat’s a** what someone else does. How are you familiar with that term?


      • Harry, Talk about the best laid plans. I was going for pragmatic. Now, I’m feeling sorry for the sorry. But I’ll answer yours and then you answer mine. I have friends and family who are “friends”, so I know the term well. Three of them were with us last night, two of them subscribe to this blog. I meant it to whomever as a blanket apology for all the imbibing jokes, for any insensitivity, because that’s not me. Your turn…was that Honey like sweet, or Honey like ornery?


      • Oh Ang..it is always a sweet honey Honey. I do not deal any other way. I am so glad you stumbled on this, there was some snappy s*** starting and I truly believe your presence stopped it. That is my story and I am sticking to it. Tell my “friends” I celebrated 36 on April 15…Class of ’81 (a Hoosier saying)

      • Ok, as long as we’re cool. That inflection thing is always questionable. I have no idea what you’re referring to about the snappy stuff, but I’m not even ‘gonna go there. 36 is a good number. And April 15th? Were the taxes that bad? HA. Enjoy your week in Wisconsin. Goodnight and good luck, Honey! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


  5. Steve, Music Maven…Going to try and catch up. Combining them here.
    Bad refrigerator . “James Dean”..never knew. Great song, over the top lyrics. Should have paid more attention to the Eagles, wasn’t the biggest fan. Adding to playlist “Y’days Papers: Rolling Stones, check . “You don’t need to be forgiven”? No clue. The “Miserlou” references, I know I was tired at the game, but I can’t swear to hearing it.. Got up twice, phone call and (failed attempt to use the rest room), did I miss it? It’s played a lot at NY games so maybe it didn’t register? But being Dales b’day is a great reference.
    Oh and the song I couldn’t remember from Marc Messiers number retirement? U2, “Where the Streets Have No Name”. If you’re not familiar with it, google it, because the intro has got to be one of the best ever. Did I say this already? Deja vu e deux? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


    • Glad you got “James Dean” -my clue would have been wrong. I thought it was on Desperado, but it’s on Over The Border (should have used it on Cinco de Mayo).

      You asked ‘whose or ‘Who’s’ — you’re right both times. Let me explain:
      ‘Whose “That Song About the Midway”‘ – Correct, written and performed by Joni Mitchell on her second album “Clouds” (Both Sides Now).
      “Who’s” “Baba O’Riley” usually better known as “Teenage Wasteland”
      “Out here in the fields
      I found both our meals
      I get my back into my living
      I don’t need to fight
      To prove I’m right
      I don’t need to be forgiven”

      U2, yup great song. I’ll have to see if Messier’s ceremony is on Youtube.

      I guess we’re not annoying anyone else; except for Paul, where is everybody?

      • Lefty, I’m through with TMI…!!! I wasn’t even thinking to! The lines were ridiculous! That’s why I got up before the period ended. Every copied me! LOL. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


  6. Hi Mike et al, first 3 & last words and cartoon answer were easy for me. Did a little of your famous โ€œself Jumblingโ€ Mike, rather than dig out scrabble tiles for ORNERY & SICKLE.
    Mike, now that we know you would love to attend a giant Jumble event, we need to make early plans for you to go next year.
    Steve, thanks for telling me about your little handheld Jumble game from yesteryear. Cool!! Jerry saves stuff, also, that brings back fun memories. Thanks oodles for posting the directions to Amazon for a decent price for my book.
    Angela, I was an insomniac when I was young. As soon as I heard hubby snoring, up I got and headed to my desk where I did a lot of homework for classes I was taking, graded papers, wrote letters, etc. Sometimes I sewed until I got sleepy. I was OK with it, but it would have helped to know that others were that way, too.

    • Hi Lelia – I was only wrong about the age of my handheld Jumble game. Seems like I’ve had it forever, so I said 1980’s, but when I looked on the back, it says ยฉ2006 Hasbro. Just 20 years; who’s counting?

    • Hi Lelia. I never was this bad until after losing my Mother. It’s all related, I know. Sometimes there’s just not enough therapy and “Mother”s Little Helpers”! I’m just joking. I just get addled at times from poor time management I think. Like now, I’m cooking, doing laundry, texting here, and reading the papers. One thing at a time would make more sense….and it’s not like there’s not enough hours to spread it around better! I’m working on it. Didn’t we have ORNERY just recently? Mike will know. Or Harry because I think we joked about old westerns or something. Hope you’re enjoying your day! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


      • Just sticking my head in here for a second:
        ORNERY appeared on 3/31/2017. You and I appeared on the blog here around St. Patrick’s Day.
        Back to real life.


  7. No mas with the Cinco de Mayo, damn near killed me! LOL James Dean. I think I never knew the song, but I really like it. “Who’ s on first”? …HA..Baba O’Reilly? I’m giving Google a workout? Again, no clue! I’ll check it out. Midway, listen to Bonnir Raitt’s cover. I just really like Boonie Raitt. Messier’s farewell? Memorable to the Nth degree. You prob can find it. That song came on, he walked out, the Garden erupted. There’s bound to be articles. I remember there was even some reference made to Kleenex or something, because everybody cried. Or maybe I made the reference? No, I think it was written up somewhere. You can check. It was the intro, HAUNTING! As for bothering anyone else? These are rational people you’re talking about! They’re not hanging around a Jumble blog ๐ŸŽถ”on a Sunday afternoon๐ŸŽถ! And I segued right into The Young Rascals. Without even trying! Now THAT never came off the playlist! One of my top 100 of all time. And, Tommy James and the Shondells ? Did I spell that right? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป


    • “Rascals”, good one. At first I thought you meant The Kinks:
      ๐ŸŽต “And I love to live so pleasantly,
      Live this life of luxury,
      Lazing on a sunny afternoon.
      In the summertime
      In the summertime
      In the summertime” ๐ŸŽต

      Hey, real life calls. Talk to y’all later.

  8. Hi Angela – No hockey news today please; watching games later on tape.
    The Met’s salvation is at hand — the Giants are coming to town. Swept by Cincy combined score 31-5.
    From newspaper:
    “CINCINNATI – The bad news for the troubled Giants is they got swept by the Reds. The good news is their next opponent is the troubled Mets.
    Not that the Mets are slouches. For the Giants, no team is a slouch. Itโ€™s just that the Giants can feel relieved theyโ€™re not alone in their misery.
    Sundayโ€™s 4-0 loss marked the end of the series but not the end of Billy Hamilton and Co. The Giants open their next homestand opens with four games against the Reds.
    But first: the Mets, who are a mess. They suspended Matt Harvey three games without pay for violating team rules. They put Noah Syndergaard on the disabled list after the pitcher refused an MRI and got hurt. They posted a picture of a toy that we canโ€™t describe in a family newspaper.”

    Going out for a couple of hours – real life again (it happens).
