CARTOON ANSWER:

ONCE HER CAR WAS REPAIRED, SHE SAID THIS IN REGARDS TO THE DAMAGE —

DIOGNTDESDOR = GOOD “RID-DENTS”

Good morning everyone and happy Friday!  I was bored yesterday so I took the opportunity to spruce up the website a bit and I hope you like what you see.  I also made a change to the comments section so you no longer need to enter your name and email to leave your thoughts.  Hopefully this will encourage you to post what you liked or maybe disliked about the puzzle.  With all that out of the way, here’s how I solved today’s game.  All of the clue words came into view quickly and I didn’t stumble at all which was a nice break after having some difficulty yesterday.  With all of the clue words solved, I cruised on to the cartoon portion.  Noticing that part of the solution had quotes, I took no chances and wrote out all of the clue letters before reading the sentence and dialogue.  Repaired and damaged were the two words that stuck out like a sore thumb so I had a feeling that they would somehow be included in the answer.  The letter layout was pretty nifty in that it didn’t give anything away.  For some reason, GOOD was the first word I found and it was 4-letters so I wrote it down and crossed out the letters.  DENTS came next and RID was right there to complete the puzzle giving us a funky play on words and an overall delightful Jumble finish.  Jeff did a great job on the cartoon, especially with all of the little dents on the car in the background.  That same car had three cracks on the windshield which was also a nice touch and I couldn’t help but notice that the front grill looks like an eye!  Have a great long holiday weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow.  😀

  1. Good morning, Mike, good morning, Everyone…Good “RID-DENTS”?? HA!
    DING-Dong!! How I love the solutions with quotation marks! You know it’ll be PUNny!
    Great word scramble…1-4. (Although I admit, that IGNITIONally, I thought idiot).
    Fleeting moment..BANGed out the words.
    On to the cartoon. So here we have Bob, speaking with the woman, with the mallet (I think it’s called a mallet), in his hand. I don’t get that. Then we have the woman, (for the color-denied: Oh yea, purple top), with this big smile on her face. Ok, granted, she’s glad her car is fixed, but such a grin? Did insurance cover the whole DING? I guess so.
    The hints? Visually, the car in the background showing the “dents”. Verbally, Glad=Good, Gone=Rid, Dings=Dents. Voila! Once again, HAIL to the Chief! Clever, clever…
    And I’ll leave you with this hymn..🎶”Amazing Grease, how sweet the sound, that saved a Wrench like me…”🎶…To which the congregation responded…”OILlelujah”!!
    Happy Friday! 🚙 🔧🙋🏻

      About waiting for the JumbleAnswers email notification:
      🎵”It must be Mike, Oh dear God, it must be Mike, but it’s not Mike, and then I die..” 🎵

      Our local station used to play 10 oldies from a specific year, and after the jock played that, he said something like, “there’s a real feminist anthem for you”.. not!
      Or when we refilled the water bowl for our cats, they would be so excited and then
      “It must be milk, oh dear God, it must be milk, but it’s not milk, and then I yowl”. Poor babies.

    • Hi Betty, DITTO on the IDIOT! Here in NYC we’ve had Fleet Week going on. It started Wednesday with the ‘Tall Ships’ coming into NY Harbor. Breathtaking, tear inducing, never gets old. I had to miss it this year, but my friends filmed it for me. It continues all through Monday, with air shows, and ship tours, and concerts. The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is especiall amazing. There’s so much to see. And NYC swarms with boatloads of young, wide eyed sailors in their dress whites. Thousands of Navy, Marine Corp, and Coast Guard members walking, gawking amongst us. Your heart swells just looking at them. It’s all so touching, and you’d have to be made of wood not to be moved. I’d recommend Fleet Week to anyone looking for a good time to visit NY. I sound like a travel agent! LOL. And ditto to thanking all our Vets! Hope you have a great weekend too. 🇺🇸 🙋🏻

  6. Angela, we have Fleet Week the second seek in October and it sounds like a similar schedule as yours. It begins with the Tall Ships sailing into the Bay under the Golden Gate Bridge and are a sight to behold. I live within walking distance of the bridge so always go down to see them arrive. The culmination of the celebration is the four day performance of the Blue Angels which inspire awe and apprehension as they soar over the City and the Bridge. All traffic in the area comes to a grinding halt. The first time they were a part of Fleet Week was sometime in the 1980’s. The City Fathers had not announced to the public that they were going to be here and there were a lot of calls to 911 as we citizens thought we were under attack. They fly fast and low.

    Congratulations to your talented son who is a chip off the old block. What goes around comes around so your loving him so much will continue to return to you.
    Easy time with Jumble words today even though I thought idiot for a second as did others. I was fine with “droven” in that I have droven about 40 miles this week, but I changed it into VENDOR anyway. LOL Got the answer word DENTS first because a friend removes dents from cars for a living. He uses mallets, mirrors, magnets, and many more tools. When I dented my brand new car by bumping a cement post beside the drive-by mailbox, I called him immediately, and Jerry & I could not tell where the dent had been.
    Yesterday when I could not get on the site for a while, the link kept telling me no access due to wordpress robots or something like that, and after trying it over & over I became so frustrated that I began to feel sorry for Harry & how he feels.
    Thanks again for welcoming me back. Delighted to be back! Enjoy your day! See you tomorrow.

I’ve found that replying from the reply button in your email (like Gmail) almost always puts the reply in the right place. (Now watch it mess up *this * reply). Using the nearest reply button on thr website, not so much.

  14. Mike, I agree you need a chat room for those that like to talk a lot about things other than Jumble. It is hard to keep up with comments when there are over 200 and hard to answer replies as they are often not grouped together. It’s your site and you should do what you feel is best. Just throwing in my two cents. 🙂

      • Mike and Angela – I hope you guys are asleep for your health’s sake. Don’t know if Mike reads these day after posts. Anyway I’m fine, no stress, just busy. I was doing laundry all afternoon, then needed to get dinner, and after that all I wanted to do was concentrate on the hockey game because I figured it would be good, and was it ever! Thoughts on that later. (Watching hockey takes attention, unlike baseball 🙂 ).
        Our time difference really messes up real time chatting.
        Also, Angela, you know my wife had vertigo for about a week also? This last week she’s much better, so I’ve been able to do stuff with her instead of posting here, fun as this is. So take heart; as I’m sure you know, things do heal up eventually, and I sincerely hope you’re completely well very soon. ❤️
        I read your posts after the fact and it was great fun. Only problem for me is I can’t get most of the games you’re watching. Mike is ADDICTED to MLB? – that’s how I was all winter with NHL CENTER ICE; it’s great.

        Mike – re: the GULP on Geraldo answering Angela on Mets vs Yanks; tell him not to worry – he has a 50% chance of surviving!
        And I think the chat room is a great idea to try out, before my Gmail hits two 100-answer blocks of messages for one day!
        Take care you guys, see you — I guess later today!
