CARTOON ANSWER:

WHEN THE DENTIST AND THE CARPENTER ARGUED ABOUT THE CONSTRUCTION, THEY FOUGHT —

ONOHITTLAAND = TOOTH AND NAIL

Good Thursday morning everyone!  The weekend is right around the corner and it’s shaping up to be sunny and warm — finally!  DAWNED was the only clue word that I had a difficult time with even though we’ve seen it numerous times in the past.  I’m not sure how you feel about past tense words being used as clues in the puzzle but I’m not a fan of them.  Moving along to the cartoon, I was able to solve it without writing it down for the second day in a row which is an unusual feat for me.  The cartoon was excellent and you could definitely feel the tension between both of the characters.  Jeff did a super job with their body language as both characters had their fingers pointed at each other as well as their mouths open wide — it made me a bit uncomfortable just looking at it!  The letter layout was weak in my opinion as AND was spelled out for us in order leaving just the other two words to be solved.  It’s easy to criticize the work of others so rather than end my post with a negative observation, I figured I’d offer a constructive solution.  I would have moved DAWNED to the number three slot and used the first D in the word as a clue letter.  David is a master at his craft so I’m sure he had a very good reason for leaving it the way he did.  Enjoy your day and I look forward to seeing you right back here tomorrow!  πŸ˜€

  1. Good morning, Mike, Good morning, Everyone. NAILED IT! Sunk my TEETH right into it, and just FILLED it in! Had it AWL done INCISOR a minute! Great puzzle, and 🎢”Oh, so easy to love.”🎢. I was totally ENAMELed! (Well maybe not totally…The dentist, BRACE yourself, the dentist?..WOODn’t you know it? .Purple top! KNOT for nothing, this can’t be acciDENTAL! Whatever happened to dressing in those PEARLY WHITES)? Sweet TOOTH or not, this puzzle was a piece of cake! Sadly, with our two main characters looking so upset, we’re missing those Colgate SMILES, but there’s no missing the cartoons message. HAMMERed it home. ‘Gotta LEVEL with you..Awesome details! TOOTH be told, it was a give-away, a gift! The angry faces, the Dentist and the Carpenter, the question using “Argued” and “Fought”…served it all right up to us on a SILVER PLATEer!! (I was looking for some CROWN MOLDing, but the pic didn’t go high up enough). The words? BRUSHed them right off. 1234. No GAPS, same old GRIND. Just easy, breezy. Calm…like TranscenDENTAL Meditation. Nothing unNERVEing here! Today’s eye candy? I SAW so much…I was torn between the nail behind the carpenters ear, or the tape on his hammer handle, the nails in the other carpenters mouth, or the Grin-Smile magazine in the dentists hand. (Then that made me think Hoof and MOUTH..But that’s me, ABCESSive compulsive)! I’m going with the nails in the carpenters mouth, it reminds me of my Father. Brought up a lot of those old FILLINGS. ROOTine for me.

    So, you all know the DRILL…Enjoy your day, and don’t let anything have a negative IMPACT on you…I’m PULLing for us all! 😷 πŸ”¨ πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. Another outstanding one-two punch, Mike and Angela. The answer was easy but I had to back into both dawned and outlaw and needed my pad for outlaw. Mike, I’m fairly new to Jumble (one year) but I’m already seeing some words repeat. The ed words add more possibilities with a three or four letter base, which I like, as long as such words aren’t used too often.

      • Let’s not get carried away now. We’re sharing ❀️ the music, but the Magic so far is mine. “You’ve come a long way, Baby…”, but there’s still work to be done! πŸ˜‚ The Lovin’ Spoonful? NY? I didn’t know. (Oh, and tell Caroline Casablanca is one of my top 5 all time greatest movies too.) πŸ˜‚

      • Concede. The magic will always be in the music. But I got the magic, that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it! I WILL take into consideration the wink! LOL…So now, you’re throwing me. The reference was to 🎢”Do you Believe in Magic”🎢 Now this is 🎢”Summer in the City”🎢 Sebastian both, but….you’re losing me. You can’t imagine the humidity. And worse, the pollen. I had to come inside, because it starts to feel like your throat is crammed with cotton. You can actually see it floating in the air…Big enough to grab onto to. Yep, 🎢 “Summer in the City”🎢…. So, inflection. Tuesday night, the Boston announcer dumping on Tanaka because of his interpreter. Nuance was bandied about. And it’s so true, right? They’re both so key to “hearing” someone. When we discussed the International audience joining in? No way would these comments “translate”. We mis-take each other at times…Blurred lines. Anyway, the remark was foolish and unwarranted and I felt for Tanaka. Bad enough the poor guy got beat up. The pollen…one of my neighbors is outside as we speak literally vacuuming his deck! It’s a struggle! πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Yes, I just referred to “City” because I thought that hearing the song would have tipped you off that Spoonful was a NYC band.
        Yup, I think Boston announcer Jerry Remy went to the Lou Pinella Institute for Cultural Sensitivity .
        What is it with those guys, Curt Schilling, sheesh! And every reliever has to begin his windup from a pose inspired by a drunken ballerina.
        Sorry, I’ll stop ranting now, have to do chores, then a time-shifted Stanley Cup Final game tonight.

Sweet Lou? Yea, got his faults, and a big mouth, but I got a bit of a soft spot for him. Women, huh? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. Yes, we know the drill! Hockey night..? Time shift we’re calling it now? LOL! Go in peace, Bro, TCB. I’ll be ahead of you later…I’ll contain myself! Watch out for those catfish…Slipoery b——s! Let the puck stop where it may. Catch you later..πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Hey Steve, I never knew you were here. I’m trying to clear out my email and saw your name a few times. 437 emails. I can’t do this now, too many to go thru. I just texted the Luigis and told them to make it 6-6:30 instead. I need sleep! But real quick, how great was that game? Magic! And leave poor Harry alone! I meant my Magic wand…I don’t know where you heads at! Good night, Gracie. πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ˜΄

  8. Hi Mike & fellow commenters! Had the cartoon answer & first 3 words immediately.
    Took only an extra second for DAWNED to dawn on me because I used Carolyn’s method of having to solve only a 4 letter word before putting the β€œed” back.
    Mike, loved your post & animated picture.
    Joy, welcome to our friendly forum.
    Betty, go Warriors!! More Friday.
    Mike, Earl’s sentence would fit PERFECTLY into an episode of your LivePD show. I can just see the police doing the nail thing on an Arizona freeway.
    Steve, I was going to say β€œWoo Hoo Warriors” but noticed you used it yesterday for another team. Great minds…
    Sorry I’m so late. I enjoyed some extra hours of ZZZ’s.
    Enjoy what’s left of your day! See you tomorrow.

  9. Mike, thank you so much for telling me about your field trip. You know how much I enjoy reading the details of a fun outing. You & your son in a picture together; what a treasure, worth a thousand words. As a former teacher, you are a VERY SPECIAL DAD for volunteering to chaperone children on a field trip.
    At first LivePD was on Friday but then they added Saturday. Is either night better to watch? Can’t you just see the Arizona police going after Earl’s onion thieves?
    See you tomorrow.

    • Hi Lelia! I’ll miss these days when he gets older, but now I have a photo that I can remember forever. LivePD had to add a second night of action because they are the #1 live show on television (as of last week). It’s live so there’s no telling which night will be better — anything can happen at any time. Earl is a genius with the sentences, and Angela is so witty with her puns. I look forward to both of their posts every morning as well as hearing your wonderful stories. Be well and tell Jerry I said hello! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ»

  10. Steve, after reading the Ostler article yesterday in which he suggested that football would be a marching band, etc., I was thinking that we should come up with a genre, style, or type of music that would go with your Ice Hockey. I quickly though of 3 but can’t find where I wrote them. I just now Googled music genres and there are a LOT!
    I am still embarrassed about what you thought after reading my post of the words to the Mary Poppins song β€œI Love to Laugh.” I promise, no more Mary Poppins songs. By the way, all 3 of us ordered ice water to drink but then I added a Sprite.
    Thanks again for telling me about Red & Rover and The Elderberries, just read both of them. Close to Home was weirdly funny as usual; would be interesting to meet the guy who thinks that one up (John McSometing).
    I’m just babbling today so I’ll close & talk with I have something interesting to say.
    Bye for now, cheers, and enjoy the rest of your day!

    • Cheers back to you both. Who knew we or anyone could make Mary Poppins embarrassing?
      I thought the same about hockey music, but all I could come up with was a Warren Zevon song called “Hit Somebody!” that I posted for Angela the other day – you can read it there or Google it. And there’s a Canadian band named “Five For Fighting.”
