πŸš— Mike, This one’s REALLY for you! πŸš—

🍩  HAPPY NATIONAL DOUGHNUT DAY 🍩

Good morning, Mike, Good morning, Everyone!!

So, Mike, coincidence much? Hearing that Twilight Zone Theme music in the background? Think you’d like THIS new car? JUMBLE MOTORS presents the “MOSAIC”. Straight off the assembly line right into your heart! How cool is this?

MOSAIC, defined by Oxford as a picture or pattern produced by arranging together small pieces of stone, tile, glass, etc. A PUZZLE….! This CARtoon may just rank up there in the Top Ten! Β Just look at those happy faces! Β Who wouldn’t love this nifty little two-seater, complete with the monogrammed “J” and a intelligent personal assistant to help with all your Jumble needs? We could call him Javeffed. Β (Hey, if the President can do it…)! Β I tried! Anyway, we seem to be putting it in reverse here…THE WORDS! Purge, Heavy, Poetic, 1-2-3…we’ve seen them before, scrambled anew. I want to say we’ve seen Tandem also, but I’m not sure. Or are we BRAKEing precedent? Tandem, I had to do a DOUBLE take. Β Not an everyday word by no means, and there’s always that tendency to want to end it in ED. The scramble is great! But I RODE it down, and was back on track. The salesman, saying the price has risen, Β AUTOmatically gave us UP. Β And DRIVEN was a given! Back to the CARtoon, the sticker price started at $25K. We don’t know what it’s up to now. I’d hope it came in other colors, though, because this mustard is a must not! Maybe negotiate over that. The woman with the newspaper, obviously doing the Jumble, she’s obviously…You finish the sentence..

A lot of Donut chains are offering freebies today. DONUT about you, but I think I’ll grab one with my cappuccino. I never met a Jelly that I didn’t like!

Hoping we all get to find that road less traveled…I wish you a great day! 🚘 πŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. Hi Angela and all,
    The first three words came pretty easily. With these letters, I figured the last word was up and the first ended in ed. Though I was wrong about ed, the d helped me find tandem with my pad, and driven followed quickly after that.

    • 🎢”Sweet Caroline”🎢, Good morning.Tandem may be the word today to DRIVE us all crazy. I immediately thought of you y’day,when the Climate Pact news was announced. Sitting, enjoying a ball game, and I got the alert on my phone. Sobering news. The NY Daily News headline today…in HUGE letters,,,”Trump to World; Drop Dead”. So, where do we go from here? I pray a whole lot…Hope you have a great day. πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. The showroom model that was demonstrated on Friday brought two cyclists from the POE TICket venue to purge the Jumble answers site of heavy-weight responders.

    • Good morning, Sir! Heavy-weight post this early in the morning! You have the RIGHT OF WAY…with words. I agree, great puzzle. The CARtoon, exceptionally clever. And you mentioned that you never write anything down. Kudos! We have another nice day today, here downstate. Hope you do also. Enjoy your day. πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Earl, No explanation needed! No grading here, and as I said before, if Mike did, it’d have to be on the curve! (Which the Mets pitching could have used y’day! Missing those old curve balls)! Even when I know the word first glance, I like to see it written. Brick and mortar mentality, I guess. But I do it in pen. Always! That I got a PENchant for! πŸ˜€πŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. Great job, Angela! I ALMOST wrote last night in my email that “what if it was a car related puzzle” but thought there was NO CHANCE of it happening. Ha Ha Ha!!! The newspaper that the woman was holding had a few comics on it. The only one I could make out was Family Circus because of the round shape. Jumble was below that and Peanuts would be my guess for the other one. There was writing on the back of the paper but it looks like “scribble” to me. I hope you don’t mind, but I enlarged the picture and added it to your post. Have a great day everyone!!! πŸ™‚

  4. Like Rita, I too could have used that little car (which was red and blue in my paper) to navigate “tandem”. Other than that it was an easy solve. Happy Friday everyone.

    • Hi Betty. Red and blue would have been welcome! My paper and on line showed this terrible 2-toned mustard shade. That little car? A thought for Jeff perhaps? Create a toy car that acts as a Jumbler? The line forms here!

  5. Hi all! My favorite clue word was poetic. I had to self-jumble POETIC once and TANDEM twice. Loved the cartoon picture with that cute little cartoon car with such happy buyers and the puzzle answer pun. All in all, a fun Jumble.
    Enjoy your day!

  6. Mike, I’m wishing I had not asked for recipes as busy as you have been lately. My daughter has many white wine sauce recipes so I don’t need that one. I would like the gravy one that you simmered all day but only if you have the ingredients memorized and can type them out in a minute or two. Don’t need all the directions. I’ll just use the ingredients from your list that Jerry likes and make gravy. I was mostly wondering if what you simmered all day was chicken, beef, or pork or none of the above.
    I’m wondering if you have started your elaborate process of preparing corn for your Thanksgiving feast; buying it at its peak sweetness, shucking, blanching, cutting it off the cob with that special tool you told us about, and freezing it. Makes me hungry just thinking about it. We bought and ate some good corn on the cob yesterday but I don’t know if the time for peak sweetness is now or a little later in June. Come to think of it, I read that to get peak sweetness one has to buy the corn where it was grown, as you do and we used to do, rather than from a grocery store as we did yesterday.
    Enjoy your day!!

    • Hi Lelia. You may have misunderstood when I used the word “gravy”. What I was referring to was my “Italian gravy” meaning spaghetti sauce. I’d be happy to give you that recipe if you’re still interested! I truly hope you had a wonderful lunch with your daughter at the Olive Garden. I am taking everyone to see Wonder Woman tomorrow and hope we can stop there for a quick lunch afterwards. Have a great day and talk soon!

  7. Steve, thank you for both of your lovely comments to me yesterday. I just found the second one and was glad I had gone back & looked.
    I did what you suggested and listened to Dust in the Wind by Kansas. Loved the song. After seeing their hair, I now understand why Josh’s hair looks the way it does, but being so unfamiliar with the look I’m beginning to wonder if I have listened to any popular music since the 50’s.
    A few days ago I decided to ponder why I know so little about 60’s music so I replayed the 60’s in my mind. Married in l960, had both children within the next few years so mommy began singing Mary Had A Little Lamb, Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star, & Jesus Loves Me. Then I finished my BA at ASU, began MA, and in l969 I got a teaching certificate, signed my first teaching contract, and children entered first & third grades. There went the 60’s.
    I have 2 funny things to tell you but they’ll have to wait because my day is slipping away while I sit here enjoying talking to you. Duty calls.
    Enjoy the rest of your day!!

    • Thanks, Lelia. I was really amused when I watched Josh on youtube say how much he ” loved the 90’s” in a tone that I would have used referring to the Civil War era, or maybe the Big Band 30’s Swing Era, substituting Benny Goodman or Glenn Miller for Soundgarden. While I was growing up, any reference to the 1990’s sounded like an unimaginably distant future. Perspective, I guess.

      Looking forward to your stories, but don’t let it interfere with your second book!

  8. Hi all – No problem with TANDEM because it was a well-known computer company when I was working. No, I CRASHED at POETIC: Let’s see,
    OPTIC-E No, extra E.
    TOPIC-E That pesky extra E again.
    ICEPOT – I can just *barely* remember my grandparents having an icebox – a wooden box with an enclosure on top where the iceman cometh every day to insert a big block of ice with his icetongs – before they got their first refrigerator, but I don’t think, and sincerely hope, that they never had an ICEPOT.
    Then wrote PIT and POETIC jumped out of my brain-bilge.
    Have a great day, all – sunny and warm here.

      • Oh, no, it’s true and trivial. Don’t you have an option on your iphone that will speak your texts and emails? (Although you may have burned yours out by now!) πŸ™‚ My car speaks its options already when entering phone numbers, etc. Call it the Stephen Hawking option. If it had an option to sing the answers in Sinatra’s voice, you’d have one in your driveway right now, even if you don’t drive!

        Hey, my wife noticed that the car’s grill has 4 little circles like where you write in the Jumble words and answers. Jeff should have put 6 there, and you could show off your solved words to oncoming traffic! Instead of a traffic incident alert, you’d need a spoiler alert (mounted on the … wait for it…..)

      • I did, and was surprised! It’s just a term we use and I couldn’t believe the controversy — I would have never known so thank you. I don’t do “odd” cuts of meat as the article implied. I just buy a pack at Sam’s Club (warehouse club owned by Wal-Mart) and use the best looking cuts. Although I did by a YUGE beef tenderloin and trimmed/cleaned it for my Memorial Day BBQ. What a treat!

      • I know right? After I saw you write it a few times, I went looking for them. I knew I had never heard it before. I couldn’t find them, And then I googled it…how’d we survive before Google? LOL. And I was so surprised when I read about the New England connection. Amazing the things you can learn every day. I live for learning new things. Seriously! LOL. Tenderloin is a delight! HA. See now I need to eat something! Maybe raisins and pretzels. I’m not going to do all that seafood now. But oh God I’m thinking about it! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      • So what do YOU call them? Almost everyone eats steak, so do you say we’re having “sirloin tips” for dinner instead? My mom brought over some onion rings from one of the seafood stands she visited for dinner. HEAVEN if you ask me and the taste brings me right back to my childhood…..

      • I have no idea. I never heard it until you said it. We just do steak! But I’m intrigued by these tips! LOL. I suppose one can just cut a steak into “tips”. I’m telling you, I couldn’t find them! So then how do you cook them? I’m that way with Nathan’s fries. Just the smell and I’m conjuring up all kinds of memories! I’m always crying in my fries! πŸ˜‚

      • Tips, chunks, bits, or just steak works I guess. I marinade them with soy sauce, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, evoo, and black pepper. Highest heat possible for until medium rare. Just a quick weeknight meal.

      • Sure do! Chunks of sirloin bits on the grill. I have a tenderizer that pokes holes in them so the marinade gets in them. Marinade for a few hours or overnight– doesn’t matter. πŸ‘πŸ»
