Jumble Answers for 06/24/2017













Good Saturday morning everyone!  I trust your weekend is off to a great start, so let’s jump right into the puzzle and see what we have today.

A second glance of PANSY was all that was required to breeze through the clue words and it was off to the cartoon in a flash.  The setting for this piece is a family room where a heated discussion is occurring between two sisters.  Reading the dialogue, the younger sister is asking to borrow the scissors while the older one is less than willing to oblige.  If the younger sister added “please” within her request, it would have made the reply even nastier!  The fracas causes mom to peek out from the kitchen in attempt to mediate the situation.  She literally tells her daughter to “CUT OUT the attitude” as the girl is making cut out butterflies while sitting on the floor.  Jeff did an outstanding job blending the dialogue into his cartoon and I can’t help but wonder if this was a tiny glimpse inside the Knurek household just a decade or so ago.  The 6-letter solve came instantly with no pen or paper required for the finish.  Have a great rest of your Saturday and I’ll see you tomorrow!  ✂️

  1. First thing that came to mind was, wow, imagine if she was asking to borrow like, maybe one of those purple tops? I mean, it’s just a pair of scissors….And it’s just for a second!
    Sibling rivalry…It’s all relative! Words today, easy, breezy. Cartoon: Two sisters, one pair of scissors. Butterflies yearning to be free…Older sister BLADEtently SNIPPY, younger one CUT off at the quick. Mother..🎶”Mother, can you SHEAR the time…”?🎶 Get out there and SNIP this in the bud! We need another pair of scissors, one is just not CUTTING it…Older daughter just not willing to SHEAR, and acting TEARible towards her sister. FOLDer, but not wiser…And what a SHARP tongue. The answer..: CUT and dry…Eye candy? I’m a sucker for shoes, loved the flowered sandals.
    DisaPOINTed to see sisters having a SCRAP. Hopefully, it’ll DRAW to a close..
    Enjoy! ✂️✏️ 🙋🏻

  2. Easy one today. Been away for a bit dealing with the unexpected death of my father at the age of 75. Excellent health, and a heart attack in the middle of the night took him just like that. Been away since Monday and the funeral is not until Thursday.

    Every day is a gift. Hold those whom you love tightly and make sure they KNOW they are loved. Take inventory of your own life and work on some of those loose ends.

    • John, keep your precious memories in your heart and your Father will always be with you! Positive thoughts and prayers are being sent out to you. Blessings!

    • John, So sorry to hear this. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours God rest his soul.

    • John, Just want you to know that you’re in my thoughts tonight. Prayers for you and your family tomorrow. Be well. 🙏🏻

  3. Sorry to hear of your loss, John. Condolences to you and your family at this sad time.

  4. John, our sympathy is with you & your family on the unexpected death of your dear father. Thank you for reminding us to let our loved ones know right now how much we love them while they are still with us.

  5. I thought that pansy (my favorite flower) was snapy. But, that should have been snappy. Normal was hard to get. I still got the answer. Some of you are punny. John, so sorry for the loss of your father.

  6. Hi John, sending condolences from Rochester, where I believe you said your dad once worked for Kodak. Thank you for your wise advice.
