GILCO = LOGIC

NOCAG = CONGA

DYNEOK = DONKEY

RUJINO = JUNIOR

CARTOON ANSWER:

SHE KNEW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STRATUS, CIRRUS AND CUMULUS AND WAS —

LOCONDNEUNI = ON CLOUD NINE

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!  CONGA was the only word that had me baffled this morning.  I circled back to it after solving the other words and it came into view after staring at it for a few extra seconds.  With all of the clue words solved, I was at the cartoon in a flash.  Reading the dialogue and sentence, I wasn’t sure what the answer was going to be but it would most likely have something to do with CLOUDS since it was on the little girls pictures as well as on the television.  Sure enough it was in the clue letters and after crossing it out, the rest of the solution came instantly into view.  The letter layout was great with just the right amount of Jumble goodness to keep the answer well hidden.  Looking at the man’s newspaper, I thought Jeff was giving us a “Jumble within a Jumble”.  Upon enlarging the picture, there were no clue words to be had but the detail was exceptional and fun to look at.  I may be mistaken but it appears as though the Jumble cartoon in the paper was the exact same Jumble we were doing!  I’m sure there’s meaning to the 26 degrees on the television set, but I wasn’t able to figure it out.  If anyone has a guess, be sure to let us know in the comments section.  Have a wonderful Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow!  😀

  1. So, Conga CLOUDED your judgement a tad? 😂 Good morning. Great job, as always. Glad you had a good day yesterday! That’s a lot of Gs, huh? 🙋🏻

  2. Good morning, Mike, good morning Everyone! Even though all that CLOUD computing is CIRRUS business, what we all really need is CLOUD 9…Who hasn’t been to that magical place? 🎶”Cause he’s got SKY hopes, he’s got SKY hopes…”🎶 I’ve used the phrase so many times over the years, but never really gave it a second thought. You hear it as a child, and it just becomes part of your vernacular. So looking it up, I see that it originated from the US Weather Bureau. Who Dew? And that it used to be Cloud 7! 7! And now it’s 9!! It’s gained STRATUS! Things are looking up!
    Today’s words, creatively scrambled as they are, are not SOARING to any great HEIGHTS. Easy, breezy…”Challenge me, pleasely”! CUMULUSen the suspense? I love the word Conga, and the sound of it. I love Gloria Estefan singing it.🎶”Don’t you fight it till you’ve tried it, Do the conga beat”🎶💃🏻(I think Earl will have us dancing today)!💃🏻 The remaining three words…2’s company, 3’s a CLOUD! DRIFTED right through them! If you looked at the cartoon before the words, you easily scored a 10, because the answer was a gift! Pictures of clouds, the meteorologist on TV, everyone with such good ALTITUDES! Jeff gave US the answer! Great job, HIGH five! And then we come to the eye candy…Nothing really RAINed me in. The 26 on the screen? The colors of the clothing? ( PUH..lease)! I keep looking at the man’s shirt. I see the sign for Pi. I’m going with “Pi in the SKY”…(Hey, it’s Monday, it’s soooo early. My head’s still in the CLOUDS)!
    Always looking for that Silver Lining…🌤 ☁️🙋🏻

    Sent from my iPad

    • Such a fun puzzle, Angela! I see you noticed the 26 on the tv screen as well. Is it a Cubs reference? #26 was Billy Williams and his number has since been retired. Hmmm…. Wilco reference perhaps? I’ll keep thinking all day. 😊

      • Hey Mike, IDK.There’s an Indie rock band from Ohio named Cloud Nothings that’s on tour now. Jeff’s a music buff…Again, IDK. Funny, cause I was thinking if it’s 26°, wouldn’t they be wearing long sleeves? Jeez, a lot of guessing, huh? 😂😂 It was a cure fun puzzle. I just got an Accu Weather alert saying there may be tornadoes moving thru with these strong storms predicted. We better get out there and close up all the furniture. Eeekkkk! 🙋🏻

        • Tornadoes?! Holy moly!!! I like the mystery and have been looking up Wilco lyrics searching for “26”. Like a needle in a haystack, lol.

          • CRAZY PANTS BANANA TOWN. I’m so scared of storms! After going thru Sandy, I’m just shell shocked! …I actually counted the bands tour dates. I think we’re both on the edge, no? 😂😂 🙋🏻

    • Angela – Cloud 7 has become Cloud 9 already? I blame Victor Borge! 😂😂

  3. Mike, I think you’re right about the Jumble in the man’s paper. Good catch! That’s your “eye candy”! (Well, Ah, no..you can’t steal my phrase), but perhaps…your “Ink Blink”? Ink Blink..I like it! We can talk commission later. 😂🙋🏻

  4. At the JUNIOR prom, whose theme was “On Cloud Nine,” the CONGA line brought the evening to a LOGICal conclusion and allowed the school’s DONKEY mascot to lead the ASSembled dancers.
    Easy solve today with no writing necssary, although I also had to stare hard at nocag before conga became apparent. I got a little hung up on cognac before I realized two c’s were not there.
    Hope I met Angela’ s dancing expectations and she can whistle “High Hopes” ” Until the Twelth of Never” or “The Moon Comes Over the Mountain.”

  5. LOL…Good morning, Earl. I just KNEW there’d be a Conga line! Great sentence, as always. Wait UNTIL Mike sees it!! And I’ve gotten hung up on a few cognacs myself! 😂 Hate to disappoint, but as much as I enjoy whistling, High Hopes or not, I couldn’t carry a whole tune…And I’ll add to your TILS..Perry Como’s “Til the End of Time”, and Aretha’s “Until You Come Back To Me”. It’s so hot and humid downstate, how is it there? UNTIL later…😀🙋🏻

  6. Hot and humid here as well,
    but the weather people promise that a cold front will clear the air this PM. No visible clouds so I can!t have any word play with roiling cumulonimbus, cirrus circles or streaming stratus. Have to settle for alliteration and simile: Western New York was like a Swedish sauna this morning.

  7. Hey Earl, I can deal with the thunderstorms, anything more than that scares the c–p out of me. You know I’m good with alliteration…Not always that easy either. You done good! LOL..It’s a sauna here now. 86 and 66…Stay safe! 🙋🏻

  8. Easy answer but I did have to back into donkey and conga. I couldn’t find anything cloud-related for 26 degrees, but I did see on NASA’s site that, usually, the surface water temperature of the ocean must be 26 degrees Celsius (79 degrees Fahrenheit) or higher for a hurricane to form. Always fun to start the day with Mike, Angela and Earl.

    • Nice find, Caroline! I didn’t find that while searching and it’s really interesting to know. We like starting the day with you as well! 😊😊😊

    • 🎶Sweet Caroline🎶.Always so good to hear from you! ❤️ Hope all is well. 🙋🏻

  9. Hi, all! I feel like one of the gang having trouble with CONGA. I have danced in many conga lines but have never written the word. The rest was quick & easy.
    There is something on the internet called “Chapter 26: Clouds of War” but I did not take time to read it so have no idea what it’s about. Oops, I just noticed that Jeff explained the 26 as a wonderful temperature. See you tomorrow.

  10. Mike, I hope that your dogs are fine. I’m wondering if they are the same 2 black ones that you posted a picture of one Christmas while they were puppies, looking so cute beside your Christmas tree.
    I enjoyed your nice comment at the end of the day yesterday, thanking Angela for a day with your adorable family and nice words for all the dads & for all of us. Thanks.

    • Hi Lelia! Unfortunately my youngest dog has a skin condition that will never go away so she has to be seen bi-monthly for her medication refills. And it was her in the photograph — great memory! Angela works so hard to keep the flow of the site going so nobody gets cranky if the answers aren’t posted first thing in the morning. I don’t know what I’d do without her! I hope Jerry had a wonderful Father’s Day and you and your children spoiled him rotten. I’ll see you tomorrow!

  11. Steve, after much thought, I traced “Post free or die” to Patrick Henry, 1775, “Give me liberty or give me death,” and the first amendment, 1789/1791, freedom of speech. Now I think your comment was clever, deep, fun, & entertaining.

    • Hi Lelia – I am honored, but this time you give me way too much credit. “Live Free or Die” is the motto on license plates in New Hampshire where this blog is based. As usual, you are the deep thinker here. 😄👍

  12. Hi all – Nice detail, Mike. A Jumble within a Jumble within…
    It’ the infinity box or nested Russian dolls of Jumbles.

    Before we leave behind yesterday’s “Father Figure” Jumble, one more excellent math-related comic from today:
