CARTOON ANSWER:

THE SCUBA-DIVING PHILOSOPHER HAD —

HTHEOEGUDPST = DEEP THOUGHTS

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!  I hope you had a relaxing weekend and you’re ready to tackle another week of Jumble puzzles.  The first three clue words came instantly, with PASTRY being the only one to give me a few extra seconds of pause.  Moving along to the cartoon portion, I read the sentence and dialogue but was unable to come up with the answer.  After writing out the clue letters, I was still at a loss so I was forced to break out my notepad and began making 4-letter words.  Step, goes, post, gust, and stop all didn’t work, but for whatever reason, I saw THOUGHT and with one letter missing I made it plural leaving DEEP for the finish.  Mr. Hoyt did an excellent job of keeping the letter layout cryptic making this puzzle anything but a pushover for a Monday morning.  While studying the cartoon, I wasn’t able to find anything unique or hidden within it, but the boat bobbing above the water truly made you feel as if you were diving right alongside our philosopher friend!  Have a great Monday, and I’ll sea you tomorrow! 😉

  1. Good morning, Mike, good morning, Everyone.
    🎶”Under the SEA, Under the SEA, When the SARDINE Begin the Beguine…it’s Music To Me…”🎶 Ah, those lyrics! And what rEELy great music! The reggae, the calypso, the CLAM castanets! Sebastian just CRABbing me by the heart! I SQUID you not, it affected me DEEPly. I knew from that moment on that casually dining on SEAfood would never be the same again. My new PHILOSOPHY? Female crustaceans only! Today’s words: Easy, breezy 1-4. Nothing we haven’t SEA-n before. (Had we seen Evoke and Ground recently, though)? Pastry? Deliciously scrambled! My initial THOUGHTS? Can you imagine what Earl will HATCH up, to CORALate these words into a sentence? As for the solve? Even if the cartoon alone wasn’t the TRIGGER, the GROUPer-ing of the letters easily gave us all the KELP we needed. The eye candy today? The CORAL isn’t CORAL.. it’s PURPLE! Who knew?
    🎶”When the SARDINE Begin the Beguine”🎶…SCUBA Do Be Do..
    TANK you lyricists everywhere! We MERMAID for each other! 🦀🐠
    Have a great day, Everyone! 🙋🏻

      • 🎵Looking out on the morning rain
        I used to feel so uninspired
        And when I knew I had to face another day
        Lord, it made me feel so tired 🎵

        Hoping for better weather for you guys. I know how New England/NY can use up an entire Lelia-sent shipment of Arizona sunshine in about a day and a half. As we used to say, if you don’t like the NE weather, wait a minute!

  3. The puzzle EVOKED a PAST TRY at “deep thoughts” in GROUND-level philosophy while I was a HATCHling at university.
    Clue words all came easily but I had to write the circled letters down to solve the puzzle– for some reason it was then obvious.
    I think it was Steve who hinted that I should put words in caps if I want others to get my twisted sense of humor.

  4. Hi Earl, Good morning. I knew you’d come thru! Gave you a shout out in my post! Yes, it was Steve. (He had a good teacher)! LOL. Nothing twisted about your humor, it’s just that sometimes it’s hard to “read” another persons meaning. The quotes and caps KELP out, especially since we don’t “hear” the inflection. Your rainy weather reached us. Hope you have a great day! 🙋🏻

  5. Pastry gave me pause. I too had to write out the letters but saw deep right away and thought fell into place. We’ve got sunshine and warm weather here today in San Francisco, a departure from our usual summer forecast: “Fog along the coast, temps in 60’s”. Happy that our Warriors are ahead but then we’ve been there before and not prevailed so will keep my fingers crossed. Have a Happy Monday everyone. By the way, what happened to Harry??

  6. Hi all – I only got stuck on the first word, and then I got it wrong. I thought it was THACH. Wasn’t until filling out the answer that I realized it must be HATCH, and that I misspelled THATCH.
    I remember realizing that making up a Jumble is harder than it seems because you have to make sure the words can only be unscrambled into ONE valid word.

  8. Hi Mike et al!! First 3 words quick & easy. Just like you, Mike, and others, PASTRY took me extra seconds, 720 to be exact (12 minutes). Got the puzzle answer immediately as I read it: philosopher, thoughts, and he was deep down. Done!
    The cartoon picture reminds me of the fabulous time Jerry & I had snorkeling in Hawaii. We have never scuba dived like our philosopher, but I just loved the snorkeling. I rented an underwater camera and got some good pictures of Jerry feeding the fish Grape Nuts cereal out of a little plastic bag.
    Sorry about the bad weather I just read about in the comments. We had heat warnings on the news last night with a two-day forecast of 106 degrees.
    Enjoy your afternoon & evening! See you tomorrow.

Be careful with all of that heat, Lelia!!! We’ll take all you can spare as it’s so cold that I had the heat on in the car this morning while taking the kids to school. Be well and enjoy your day. 😀

  9. Hi, Steve!! I just read your comment to me and it made me laugh!
    Steve, my grandmother had an ice-box for the first few years we lived with her, and I got to put the cardboard sign in the front window showing the ice-man how much ice we wanted.
    Thanks for the article about air conditioning. I read the part to Jerry about Phoenix air conditioner motors making the outside temperature a little warmer at night. In Phoenix there are two very different kinds of air conditioning. One is a large, cube shaped metal container with a thick pad on each of the 4 sides, which should be very wet before you turn the motor on causing air to be sucked through the pads and into your house to keep you cooler. We had one for years but when a refrigeration unit to cool your home became affordable for the average Joe, we got one & you already know about our new one this year. It works just like your kitchen refrigerator, using coils and cold Freon gas. The “swamp cooler” with the wet pads keeps the inside of your home moist but the refrigeration keeps it a little drier. With a swamp cooler there is no thermostat and they do not work as well during humid weather. With refrigeration, you can adjust the thermostat to whatever temperature you wish for your home to be.
    Thank’s for the tip that the classic rockers coming to Phoenix this month might not be “all there.” I won’t be buying tickets, but I’ll pass that info to kid & grandkid.
    Multitudinous well wishes!!

    • I’ve heard of swamp coolers but never seen one. I’ve also heard of people hanging semi-porous bags of water in front of their car radiators while driving through the desert for extra cooling. Kind of the exact opposite of cooking your lunch on the intake manifold, I guess.
      Cheers!

  10. Studied the cartoon clues then got the answer without any of the words. It was kind of intuitive, I guess
    As with many of you, PASTRY was a long time coming, but with all the other letters and the final answer written out, I knew I needed the P, the T and the S.
    When I got PASTRY it made me hungry for a raisin bran muffin! lol

      • Carpe is the second-person singular present active imperative of carpō “pick or pluck” used by Horace to mean “enjoy, seize, use, make use of”. Diem is the accusative case of the noun dies “day”. A more literal translation of “carpe diem” would thus be “pluck the day [as it is ripe]”—that is, enjoy the moment.

        I just got the above from Google. I figured you were going to doubt me. There’s nothing to do with Italian here, that was below the belt …again. I explained why I didn’t go to the more commonly used phrase, Carpe diem just now. . I use it all the time myself. But I had DEEP THOUGHTS about Harry possibly coming back at me, in jest, with the Pluck remark. I was just trying to avoid any possible confrontation. He may have known, he seems very well read, as are you. AS AM I. Yea, I pursued the Latin, because it helped a lot with my writing. All these root words….But, I wasn’t “needling ” you, that’s why I added the disclaimer. So, come on Steve, cut me some slack, OK This is supposed to be fun. The ball’s in your court.

      • Wow, all that “present active imperative declination” stuff makes me glad I didn’t take Latin, but I envy the insights it gives into English. I stuck with four years of French, which is helpful itself. Latin was required at my brother’s high school, and he hated it. Gud ting nobuddy reeds or rites anymor! 😉

        “Hit Sombody”
        He was born in Big Beaver by the borderline
        He started playing hockey by the time he was nine
        His dad took the hose and froze the back yard
        And Little Buddy dreamed he was Rocket Richard
        He grew up big and he grew up tough
        He saw himself scoring for the Wings or Canucks
        But he wasn’t that good with a puck

        Buddy’s real talent was beating people up
        His heart wasn’t in it but the crowd ate it up
        Through pee-wee’s and juniors, midgets and mites
        He must have racked up more than six hundred fights
        A scout from the flames came down from Saskatoon
        Said, “There’s always room on our team for a goon
        Son, we’ve always got room for a goon”

        There were Swedes to the left of him
        Russians to the right
        A Czech at the blue line looking for a fight
        Brains over brawn-that might work for you
        But what’s a Canadian farm boy to do
        What else can a farm boy from Canada to do
        But what’s a Canadian farm boy to do
        What else can a farm boy from Canada to do

        Hit somebody! was what the crowd roared
        When Buddy the goon came over the boards
        “Coach,” he’d say, “I wanna score goals”
        The coach said, “Buddy, remember your role
        The fast guys get paid, they shoot, they score
        Protect them, Buddy, that’s what you’re here for

        Protection is what you’re here for
        Protection-it’s the stars that score
        Protection-kick somebody’s ass
        Protection-don’t put the biscuit in the basket just
        Hit some, Buddy! it rang in his ears
        Blood on the ice ran down through the years
        The king of the goons with a box for a throne
        A thousand stitches and broken bones
        He never lost a fight on his icy patrol
        But deep inside, Buddy only dreamed of a goal
        He just wanted one damn goal

        There were Swedes at the the blue line
        Finns at the red
        A Russian with a stick heading straight for his head
        Brains over brawn-that might work for you
        But what’s a Canadian farm boy to do
        What else can a farm boy from Canada to do
        But what’s a Canadian farm boy to do
        What else can a farm boy from Canada to do

        In his final season, on his final night
        Buddy and a Finn goon were pegged for a fight
        Thirty seconds left, the puck took a roll
        And suddenly Buddy had a shot on goal

        The goalie committed, Buddy picked his spot
        Twenty years of waiting went into that shot
        The fans jumped up, the Finn jumped too
        And coldcocked Buddy on his follow through
        The big man crumbled but he felt all right
        ‘Cause the last thing he saw
        was the flashing red light
        He saw that heavenly light

        There were Swedes to the left of him
        Russians to the right
        A Czech at the blue line looking for a fight
        Take care of your teeth-that might work for you
        But what’s a Canadian farm boy to do
        What else can a farm boy from Canada to do
        But what’s a Canadian farm boy to do

This guy edited down a 2 hour concert to 90 minutes, and it’s the 1965 British New Musical Express summary of top groups. The description has a list of acts with the time in the video where they begin, so you can go to whatever you want and skip what you don’t. Dusty Springfield, Moody Blues, The Seekers, Herman’s Hermits, Them with Van Morrison, Donovan, The Animals, The Kinks, and, notably, The (young, attractive) Rolling Stones, and The Beatles at their British Invasion peak. The cream of the crop frozen at a perfect moment in time.

  11. Is there an echo in here? 🙂 Anyway, at my local supermarket, there’s a poster for Sapporo beer announcing “International Sushi Day is Coming! June 18th – The countdown is on”
    I really am slipping. How could I not have thought of this the other day when SUSHI was a clue word:

    🎵Su-su-sushi
    Mushi-mushi
    Cherry blossom and rice
    Su-su-sushi she’s so nice 🎵

    The video for this is amazing, and it’s definitely worth looking up the lyrics.
