Mike, This one’s for you!  💤 ☕️🍩 💤

Good morning, Everyone!      💐❤️ Happy Mother’s Day! ❤️💐

Some of us were hoping for a Mother’s Day themed puzzle…well, I guess this is as close as we’ll get! Conception!  (At least Jeff and Dave didn’t make today’s venture LABORious)! Our words were pretty much CHILD’S play: OBLONG, AGENCY, LIQUID, ACCESS, leaping right off the page; we’ve seen these words before.  I’m sure we’ve seen LETTER and VIABLE also, but the scrambling of them seemed to give off a kind of re-BIRTH!  Viable’s a funny word for this Jumble though, because broken down, VItA means “life”,  and Able, “to be possible”.  Could they have CONCEIVED this on purpose? Gentlemen, care to comment? Anyway, on to the solve…Once again, the proof’s always in the pudding! The doctor stating, ‘…this would be unthinkable‘, the Mom stating, “I don’t believe it”, the Father… Well, the Father pulling his hair out!…LOL…You read it, you see it, you solve it! INCONCEIVABLE!  You recite the, “I before E, except after C” mantra, and there you go!..As always, good graphics, better dialogue, best of puns! A blessing!

And so, holding true to the theory, ‘the more things change, the more they remain the same’: Mike will be back tomorrow, the woman’s shirt is purple!!!, and life goes on!

VITA BREVIS!  Life IS short; Make the most of today!

(And here’s to you, Mom💔)

Wishing  everyone a beautiful Sunday!  💐 🙋🏻

  1. Hello All – Not a bad Sunday for me, though I had to work through the possibilities to find access. I figured the answer started with in and probably ended with able and just had to fill in the middle. Another fun post, Angela, along with some good advice.

  2. I thought it would be a Mother’s Day themed puzzle and they didn’t disappoint us. Figured out the cartoon answer first so worked backwards though really didn’t have any difficulty with the words. Sometimes it falls into place and sometimes it doesn’t . Off to breakfast with my daughter & grandson and my son and his wife are barbecuing tonight so I’m having a fun day. Happy Mother’s Day to all of you who fit that category.

    • Just to follow up on a couple of things:
      Since you like “Who’s on first”, do not miss today’s “Pearls Before Swine” comic. Seems like the theme was also done by someone else, but I don’t know WHO.
      http://www.gocomics.com/pearlsbeforeswine

      The E Street Band is probably the greatest garage-type band – not surprising since their guitarist has a radio show called “Little Steven’s Underground Garage”.

      Those sharks you were asking about – I did some research and found that Capistrano Beach is about 490 miles from here – about the same distance NYC is from Greenville North Carolina, Akron Ohio, or Quebec. So yeah, it was in the news here, but not a big story in my local immediate area

      • Hi Steve. My paper carries Pearls Before Swine. I had seen it this morning and it made me laugh. I’ve heard Stevie Van Zandt’s show and never made the connection. The whole garage thing never registered. How weird is that? So here I am like 3K miles from the sharks, and yet the news covered the story. Pics and everything! ‘Gotta love NY news! 🦈🙋🏻

  3. Hi all – AGENCY was the only word I paused on. We just had another ACC word on Thursday, ACCENT. Had to write down the letters, saw it didn’t end in ING, but -ABLE popped right out, as did the answer, and as I hope will happen for that Mother-to-be in 9 months, although she looks like she’s going to collapse or faint, as would I.

  4. Good afternoon. Happy Mothers Day to all those who earned our respect. (There is a song in there somewhere). Had no trouble with the words,got them all fairly quick. The cartoon answer was another story. It was a ten dollar word and I have five dollar pockets. Hope to have better luck tomorrow. Stay well.

  5. Hi! I expected a Mother’s Day Jumble but was as surprised as the mom & dad in the cartoon that it was about quads!!!! Clue words came to me easily. My cartoon answer solve was ditto to yours, Carolyn; “able” at the end, “in” at the beginning, fill in the middle, done!
    While I taught school, I experienced a lot of poorly parented children. My Happy Mothers Day goes to anyone who has ever been a loving mother to any child, yours or one birthed by a sibling, cousin, or friend.
    I also saw the results of some excellent parenting. The parents of my 3rd grader who read at 7th grade level told me that they began reading, speaking, & singing to her while she was still in the womb.
    I mentioned reading skill rather than how very much that little girl was loved because summer is coming & the kids will be out of school. Please take your children to the library every week & keep them reading. Reading to your children at an early age, I began somewhere between 6 & 9 months, and starting a little collection of favorite books to read to them over & over until you think you’ll scream, prepares them academically for school more than anything else. Throw in a lot of love and some loving discipline and they will do great things.
    My sweet mother died 20 years ago. At first I would cry when I saw the Mothers Day cards in the store, but now I look at one with embossing on it which she loved and feel happy that I gave her many of those.
    Enjoy the rest of your day!

  6. Hi Lelia – I’ll send you one of my happy memories for Mother’s Day. Hope you enjoy it.
    I guess the only connection to Mother’s Day is the reference to ‘Big Mama Thornton’ .
    (There’s supposed to be a picture here of the record, but I don’t know if the copy/paste will work):

    “Hound Dog / Don’t Be Cruel,” Elvis Presley

    RCA 47-6604 (July 1956)
    recorded 2 July 1956, New York, NY
    One of the greatest two-sided monsters in the history of rock and roll, this 45 didn’t introduce Presley — “Heartbreak Hotel” had — but it solidified his status as a classic vocal stylist and interpreter, not to mention a living repository of American musical tradition. The a-side was a Big Mama Thornton blues classic recut with Vegas panache; the b was so good it made Sam Phillips pull his car over to the side of the road in delight.

  7. Hi, Steve. I was wondering the other day what song came with my first Elvis 45, Hound Dog, but could not remember that it was Don’t Be Cruel. I treasured my
    Elvis 45’s so much that I left them at home in my closet when I went to college even though I took a record player. I was afraid someone might ask to borrow one, I knew I would not say no, and there was a possibility that it would get scratched. I may as well have taken them, because while I was gone, either my mom or sister got rid of them. Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

    • I still have all my 45 plus 13 78 records. I have Elvis on both speeds. Every once in awhile I break them out. I listen to the 50s and 60s in the car. Otherwise it’s 660am or game time 710am. Nothing like those old songs.

I’ve never seen a red vinyl record, and I wasn’t even aware there were 2 sized 78’s. I’m afraid to touch them half the time, because they’re so old, and breakable. I thought the same thing with DJing. And most of the time they’d be drinking, and I’m thinking what’s the alcohol going to do to these records?

        I have the Dave Mason ‘Alone Together ‘ referenced here:
        About 30% of the records were produced in so-called marble vinyl,[citation needed] a swirled mix of pink, brown and beige, rather than the usual black vinyl.

I never followed the Yankees, and I think that wasn’t long after 9/11, so I didn’t care about sports at all, but Steve, I’m a New Yorker; we ALL talked about the ‘flip’. He always impressed, he was like a dancer out there, right? I think everyone respected and appreciated what he brought to the game itself. Watching the Ducks?

      • Steve, I’ve never read the Post. It’s kind of like the Enquirer to me. Their headlines are so obnoxious most of the time. Although, the past year or two, the Daily News has begun to stoop to their level. Funny, it doesn’t feel like that long ago, right? But, it’s more than 15 years! Last night, the news stations here were beating that ‘flip’ story to death! Were your ears ringing? Later. 🙋🏻
