LOGMOY = GLOOMY

SOKERH = KOSHER

CARTOON ANSWER:

GEORGE V RULED BRITAIN FROM 1910 UNTIL HE LEFT FOR THIS IN 1936 —

CINODMGOMKE = KINGDOM COME

Good morning everyone and happy Friday!  Did anyone else think that clue words were amazing this week?  Looking back through the blog, my favorites in no particular order were CAVIAR, TROPHY, SYMBOL, BEYOND, SYRUPY and ACCENT.  After today’s puzzle, I would add CINCH and MODEM to the list and there are enough words there for one heck of a JUMBLE!  No problems with any of the anagrams this morning and I was at the cartoon in seconds.  I didn’t even read the sentence and dialogue after I wrote out the clue letters as I saw KING right away and the rest fell into place for the finish.  Have a wonderful Friday and an early Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there.  See you bright and early Monday morning!  πŸ€΄πŸΌ

  1. Good morning, Mike, good morning Everyone. The words were instant solves, as was the answer; hinted at so strongly by the puzzles theme of the King, the funeral and the given words “In Heaven”. The answer phrase itself is said daily in The Lord’s Prayer. Good words, good graphics, good dialogue. But, brief grief. Nothing CRYPTic here.
    Wishing everyone a great day.
    Word is tomorrow here in the Northeast, the REIGNs come. πŸ‘‘ πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • 🎢Good morning Starshine🎢 Before my time, but my Grandmother spoke about it well into her 80’s. If any of us acted out of sorts, she’d always go to…”What a you think, you Queen for the day”?!!! ( The, not A, and in her endearing broken English). And she was so impressed with the women getting washing machines! LOL. Go figure! (And we already covered the Queen thing)! Last night was sports withdrawal, right? Nothin’. πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Good afternoon, Angela! (“Starshine”, Oliver). Actually I watched the Oilers/Ducks on tape last night; didn’t care that I knew the outcome.
        “Before my time” – OUCH! But I figured that and I’m used to it by now.
        My father was an insurance salesman and used to visit his clients in their homes monthly. Our neighborhood was so Italian, one of the women had a parakeet that spoke broken English. He would sit on the perch in his cage and say “Wanna-out, wanna-out”.

      • Yea, we knew a lot of “birds in cages saying, “Wanna out”. They were referred to as ‘being away at college’. I remember thinking,”Wow, we know soooo many educated people”! LOL…’Before my time’shouldn’t warrant an OUCH, just means I can’t bandy witticisms unless I look it up. Swear. And the Queen thing? I knew that you KNEW that I knew! Its all good and it’s classic! Ducks. Such a LAME (oh that’s a good one, right), name for a pro team. πŸ˜‰πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • “Ducks” is only silghtly less LAME than “Mighty Ducks”, but Disney paid for it. And that is not as lame as the NBC announcing crew who did refer to them as the Mighty Ducks even though they dropped the Mighty in 2005!
        “Away at college” eh? I think I know what you mean, but let’s drop that right here.

      • Mighty Ducks….please. All lame ducks. But Disney doesn’t own them anymore does it? Or is it, do they? I’m Slipping! No, you’re right about the “away at college”…They weren’t any of my family, so it’s ok. Just neighborhood guys you heard about. But as a kid, it was odd to decipher. I guess they said it out of respect to their families, IDK. So with all this today, now I have to cook seafood tonight, and I got 🎢Lookin” for love”.🎢 playing in my head….Better than the Justin Beiber I got assaulted with y’day! LOL….

  3. Good morning. Enjoyed it today. Took a little time to get kosher. The whole puzzle took 45 minutes. I wouldn’t give up though and finally got it. Angela was right about the hint being in the puzzle. Should have picked that up. Until tomorrow stay well.

  4. Hi Everyone. Just a quick pause at KOSHER, then no idea about the answer. I thought the last word might be HOME, so I crossed those letters out and, even though it was wrong, KINGDOM jumped out of the remaining ones.
    My little plastic handheld Jumble game has been spitting out killer words like HIATUS. I’ll have to make a list of them; I think it’s trying to embarass me.

  6. Hi, Mike! Hi, fellow commenters! Today’s solve was a CINCH from MODEM to KOSHER with no GLOOMY feelings. Got β€œkingdom” quickly as George was a king, just like yesterday’s word β€œroosts” gave me its synonym β€œperches.” I agree, Mike; another good Jumble week.

  7. Thanks, Mike, for saying they must be doing something right. Based on Steve’s comments I would be changing our plans to Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Black Angus or some other tried-and-true, but I think I will go ahead and be a guinea pig with Bush’s Chicken and let you know what it was & how it was. We just got a quick glimpse at the place as we drove by. Having been born & raised in Arkansas, right next door to Texas, I will probably like the food. We’ll see. But one thing for sure, Mike; I’ll bet they don’t have a chicken pot pie that we like as much as the one at KFC.

  9. Mike, Steve, Angela: The huge dinner rolls at the aforementioned place were delicious. The fried chicken was not quite done and underneath the crust was a layer of soft, slimy, fatty skin. The meat of the chicken had an unusual/unappetizing look and taste. We tried the smallest order of fried livers & gizzards which I grew up loving in Arkansas, but these gizzards had the texture & taste of a fried slice of bicycle tire. The mashed potatoes might have been good but it was very cold in there & many ceiling fans were going full blast; therefore, it took less than a minute for your food to become stone cold. The fried okra, which I love when it is cooked correctly, did not have enough corn meal on it and was not fried until crispy. My daughter said her green beans were good so I tried one but they tasted odd to me. Their country gravy, which they are so proud of for dipping your chicken, livers, & gizzards into, was cold & tasteless. All the waiters were extremely nice, polite, and helpful so we left without leaving a complaint, but neither of us wishes to ever go there again. Oops. Before posting, I just read your comment, Rita. I’m with your friend in loving fried liver & okra, but they should transport a Texas or Arkansas cook out here. They fry the livers & gizzards together, and every good cook knows that gizzards have to cook way longer than liver. The longer you cook liver, the tougher it gets. My husband would consider this whole paragraph moot because he hates liver & gizzards, but I raised our children to love fried chicken livers and okra.

  10. Steve, I am still laughing at your comment, after I said Jerry took me out for my Mother’s Day lunch, about him taking me out once a year, whatta guy! The whole family thought that was funny. Also, I enjoyed what you wrote this week starting with X-Tree so I typed up an Academy Award thing with you winning for the funniest comment but I’ll just tell you the gist of it. After I said…envelope, please…I said that the winner was MySlob who runs like Jim Thorpe and attends Comic Con dressed as the new imaginary, existing only in your clever brain, Marvel comic snake-man, Pythor. I just thought all of that was funny & clever of you to think up. P.S.: Guinea pig was not on the menu, but I think they had a 5-ton refrigeration unit going in that aforementioned place.
