  1. TYPO ALERT: Email went out as SWOOSH instead of WHOOSH! Doesn’t affect the letters needed for the solve.
    Let’s not be crabAPPLES about it! 🍎🙋🏻

  2. 🎶”One bad 🍎APPLE 🍎 don’t spoil the whole bunch, Girl, Give it one more time before you give up on love…”🎶.
    Obviously not true, aCOREding to today’s puzzle! This guy APPLEsolutely has a PROBLEM. A truly misFORTUNEate situation. He needs to get help, and TURN (it) OVER to the pros. I’ve RED about this. APPLEantly, this is APPLE scab. ORCHARD it be RUST? RUST assured, the arborist will know…

    It’s so early. Not BLIGHT eyed at all. KANZI, really. Trying to WHOOSH away the cobwebs, and UNCLOG my mind. In a more UTOPIAn life, I’d have a normal sleep PITtern. It’s such a BUMMER not being able to sleep..(OAKy, I tried. So now I’m left with FONDUE and TURNIP. Two things that were never the APPLE of my eye. “FUJI”, as my GRANNY used to say! I’m up a TREE as to fitting them into my sleep woes, so I’m just LEAFing them out)…

    The words are enCORE performances, but they’re not exactly mainsTREEm words. Dave’s truly BRANCHed out today, and given us some APPLEsolutely DELICIOUS STUMPers! They COREsed me to blink here and there. But I was able to SEEd my way through, and vicTREE was mine! Now, the cartoon. I got the answer as soon as I read the question. But even if KNOT, we didn’t have to DIG DEEP for the solve. Compiling the letters we see PROBLEM, and the dialogue made it simple. “Dug up”, “Soil”, “Down here”…”ROOT”. That LEAFs the eye candy…I really liked the little RED cross on the arborist’s case. And I might be going out on a LIMB, but something has me so inTREEgued. This is an APPLE puzzle, right? But looking at the orchard owner, I’m seeing “GRAPES of Wrath”. MUTSU look like this? Where are we? Is this the EMPIRE State? I mean, the hat, the scraggly beard, the unkempt dust BOLE look, kind of SEEDy, no? UnaPEELing? Maybe KNOT, maybe it’s just me…I’m BURLy awake as it is.

    Wishing us all a FRUITful, hAPPLEy ever after kind of day…Enjoy! 🍎🍏🍎 🙋🏻

  3. Good morning. I was stuck for a long while on the last three words with whoosh my biggest problem. I had it but didn’t think it was correct so I finally checked and to my surprise I was correct. The cartoon answer was an instant read. Seeing the guy digging a hole was the giveaway. Till tomorrow stay well. Steve, the other day I signed in at night hence “good evening friends ” which came from Alfred Hitchcocks opening line.

    • Hi Paul! Thanks for the reply. No big deal, but the “friends” threw me. My memory recalls his opening as just “Good EVE-ning”. (Picky-picky!) 🙋‍♂️

      • Steve now that you said it you might be right. I’m going to have to watch it and see

      • Think your right. I’ll have to watch and see. Now the longer I think about the more I do Believe you’re right haha

        • What makes me think I’m missing *another* reference here? 🤷‍♂️

  4. Good afternoon, Paul. WHOOSHn’t wasn’t such an odd word! I mistyped it as SWOOSH the first time. I don’t know if it was me or the Auto correct…Oh well, no real CORES for concern! Did you know Alfred Hitchcock is quoted as saying, “Puns are the highest form of literature”? I don’t know…The comment seems slightly for “THE BIRDS”….no? Hope you’re enjoying the beautiful day! 🌞🍎🙋🏻

  5. Thoughts on looking at the picture:
    1) Instant solve
    2) Earl! A “paunch-less” farmer!

    Thoughts on looking at the words:
    1) Tough for me today – getting a bit slangy with WHOOSH and BUMMER
    2) APOITU – Earl’s nightmare word, with the vowels outnumbering the consonants two to one! Also took me the longest to solve.

    Earl, knock your sentence out of the park with THESE words!
    (Definitely an Earl-y morning for me!)

    Have a great day, all!

  6. The WHOOSH as she UNCLOGGED the drain ( what a BUMMER) reminded her that the TURNIPS needed to be topped and the FONDUE dish had to be located before the dinner guests arrived for UTOPIAN delights.
    It didn’t take me all day to come up with this–not good enough for that amount of effort–I just did not see the Jumble and found myself miles along the canal before I realised I was “Jumble” free at 3:30 PM.
    Steve was right on when he said I would have had trouble with UTOPIA–too many vowels, but as Angela pointed out, we have had it before. WHOOSH might have caused major grief but as I said –did not try to solve anything–Monday, Monday I’ll be back on track and take a bite out of that apple on my Macintosh iPad.

    • Oops– that last phrase should read, “take a bite out of my macintosh and use my Apple iPad.”

      • Earl, I want to share something with you. In one of my crossword puzzles today, there was a 10 letter word needed for Love Letter. After completing the puzzle, I saw the answer to be: Billet-doux. I had to look it up. It’s a hyphenated word. The clue hadn’t specified 2 words or hyphen. There are web sites where you can get the pronounciation of words. It has the sweetest sound! I never knew…and I studied French! Billet-doux in the sand!…..Be well.

        • Butting into your polite conversation here —

          There was a comic strip that Earl might remember called ‘Tumbleweeds’, kind of looked like ‘B.C.’ but set in the old West.
          In one strip, a grizzled old cowboy, who obviously hadn’t studied French, said something like he was going to send his sweetheart a present instead of a love letter, but he said “In loo of a Billy-Doo”.

          • LOL. He prob did study French, just couldn’t spell! At least he wasn’t phonetically challenged! 😂🙋🏻

    • Hi, Earl, GOLDEN!! Mike will be impressed! LOL..And you have hit it out of the park.(unlike my Mets today)! A GALA effort! And you JAZZed it up a bit, too! It’s hard CORE to keep making APPLE puns…I’m PUN for the day with APPLES…ORANGE you happy about that? Hooe you’re enjoying this beautiful NY weather. 🌞🙋🏻

      • Angela– I have heard that term before– probably while reading a novel in a college course I took, but I did not remember what it meant and like you. I’m not happy when puzzles don’t indicate that the answer is two words and not one. But then I guess the hyphen makes it one word? Glad you were able to solve it and YES it was, to me , a perfect weather day — no rain for the first time in 7!

        • Yes, I suppose the hyphen could make it one word, but the clue didn’t even mention that! I refuse to not complete a crossword puzzle, even if as a last resort I’m forced to look up a clue. Stubborn! We had 2 downpours y’day that would have made Noah proud! Strange weather. It’s hot, 90°, but thankfully the humidity’s only at 40. Y’day, we walked around with the oxygen tanks! Enjoy! 🌞🙋🏻
