Jumble Answers for 07/05/2017








Good Wednesday morning everyone!  It sure was difficult pulling myself out of bed this morning after such a long day of swimming, grilling, and fireworks watching.  With the holiday over, it’s time to get back into gear and have some Jumble fun, so let’s get right to it!

SEASON was the only word that needed an extra few seconds before it came into view.  When I found “SON” the rest fell into place instantly.  With all of the words completed, it was off to the cartoon.

Jeff did an excellent job with this cartoon by transporting us to the Emerald City where we see the Scarecrow  (in the likeness of Mr. Hoyt) struggling with his Jumble puzzle.  The Cowardly Lion has a hot pot of coffee in his paw and is ready to offer up any help that he can, but the Scarecrow is determined to finish this one on his own.  The Jumble mug is an excellent detail, but my favorite was the hot air ballon floating by in the window.  Zooming in as best as I could, I couldn’t make out if the Wizard was actually in it or not.  The solve for the cartoon answer was very easy and didn’t require me to use my clue letters to complete.  I haven’t seen this movie in many years so it was a very enjoyable puzzle that brought back a lot of memories.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday and I look forward to hearing all of your comments.  I’ll see you tomorrow!  πŸ™‚

  1. 🎢”I’d unravel any riddle, For any individ’le, In trouble or in pain…And my head I’d be a scratchin’, While my thoughts were busy hatchin’…If I only had a BRAIN….”🎢. The Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion and the…. JUMBLE? Even in The Land of Oz? 🎢”Because, because, because, because…BECAUSE”🎢..? Sorry, HICCUPS! Growing up Italian, I always loved watching the Wizard of Oz…”There’s no place like Rome…there’s no place like Rome”!..LOL..Ok, We’re off to see the puzzle..
    You have to ADMIT, this guy could be clutching at STRAWS! Even we SEASONed veterans need some help now and then. We don’t always do it TOTOly on our own, and we’re no TUMMYs! Do we THINK he can do it? Would we be LION if we said we had our doubts? If the refills ‘aint free, will he be crying…ATM! ATM? (And why doesn’t the COFFEE seep through the STRAW)?..All food for THOUGHT. If he’s lucky enough to be doing today’s puzzle, he’ll catch a break. Words 1-4, no BRAINers. The solve? NoTINg to it either. Easy, breezy. And FRANKly, he does seem to have the aplBAUM to pull it off…I applaud his COURAGE, I admire his HEART…YELLOW! I THINK he may be on the ROAD to success! (Keeping in MIND, he’s not using a notepad…WIZARD surprising in itself)! So, the eye candy? There’s so MUNCH I KIN choose from today. The Jumble coffee mug? The WIZARDS hot air balloon? The steeples and spires? The lions’ LAHR-di-da hairdo? WITCH will it be??? Today, I’m going with what I CAN’T SEE..
    KANSAS be done without that trusty notepad?
    Happy Monday morning, Everyone. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain…” He’s probably just doing the Jumble..! Enjoy! πŸ‘ πŸ‘  πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • OOOOPPPSS..Two days late and a dollar short! πŸ‘ πŸ‘  πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • “aplBAUM” and “munch I kin” were inspired!
      Did you see “Bizarro” today? “Enjoy” it! πŸ˜‰

      • Inspired? Thank you.
        “FRANKly he does have the aplBAUM to pull it off…” I know there’s an “L”..but to L with the L…
        Believe me, today wasn’t a RUNAWAY. No LION, I MONKEYed around with it for a GOOD while. I was just ‘gonna WING it, but then it hit me like a BRICK! WIZARD wasn’t so hard to find something for Dorothy..though. Had my head SPINNING! Then I said to myself, ..”not MUNCH I KIN do…EASTs better to just leave it alone, and stop WESTing so much time…”
        WITCH is what I did..FARM be it from me…to you know, like beat myself over the head with a window sash…! The End. Cue the music….πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. In some parts, people say “set” his mind to. So that’s what I thought it was at first glance.

  3. Knew the answer and words were very easy; good Monday puzzle. Have a great day! πŸ™‚

      • I kept thinking yesterday was Sunday, too!
        If Tuesday wasn’t my garbage day, I wouldn’t have known *what* day it was!

      • And so it is, holiday played with my mind. So it was a good hump day puzzle. πŸ˜‡Would also be a good Monday puzzlle; so look at it either way. 🌞

  4. Hi, Mike et al!! Easy answer, easy words, but what fun remembering the Wizard of Oz with a new twist. Loved seeing the lion with one of Mike’s many Jumble-solving techniquesβ€”a pot of hot coffee. Welcome back, Mike!!
    Last night while celebrating the 4th, I used yesterday’s Jumble to ask my family what the Star Spangled Banner was when it became our National Anthem and the one who guessed β€œCountry Music” was Josh West, my singing grandson!
    Last night the water in the pool, heated only by the Arizona sun, was 94 degrees!
    Have a wonderful Wednesday!!

    • That’s not a pool, that’s what we call a hot tub! Sounds nice, though.

    • Hi, Lelia! It’s great to be back and it sounds like you had a very exciting holiday! That pool water sounds AMAZING as the water in mine hovers in the 60’s. Have a great evening! πŸ™‚

  5. Angela,
    Kudos on a great post…Munchkin, Oz-mosis, “Kansas” this be done……creativity at it finest.

    Jeff and David’s genius in pairing pun and picture……….priceless!

    • Chase, YELLOW! Thank you so much for your kind words. I felt I kind of pushed the envelope this morning, but this wasn’t the easiest puzzle; and I’m the first to admit, some of these are truly groan inducing! But, TBT, I walked around most of the day hearing “ATM..ATM” in my head! It’s good to laugh! Thank you sincerely. πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • ATM? ….no sure what that means also….. I’m wondering what yellow was reference to?

        • Chase, To answer your first questioning of “yellow” we were referring to the color of the emojis. I repeated it here as a play on the word, HELLO! ATM? In the movie, Dorothy calls for her aunt…”Auntie Em, Auntie Em”… πŸ™‹πŸ»

  6. The HICCUP episode happened when she had to ADMIT to a TUMMY tuck during the swimsuit SEASON, and put her mind to buying a “teeny weenie yellow polka dot bikini.”
    Good to be back — missed yesterday’s blog. Today’s clue words and solution were pretty easy and I cannot say enough good things about Angela’s amazing abilities. Had to sneak”yellow”
    In somewhere and that OLD song popped into my head.

    • “Keep your mind on your driving, keep your hands on the wheel,
      Keep your snoopy eyes on the road ahead”, Earl!

    • Hi Earl. Part of me 😈 wants to say..”Yes, yes you CAN say enough good things …” The other part of me πŸ‘ΌπŸ» just wants to say, “Thank you, kind Sir”. It’s a struggle! πŸ˜€
      I’m loving your sentence, well worth the wait. I know these weren’t easy words. And YELLOW! to that bikini! πŸ˜‚ Here’s a treat…On or about 1:35 or 1:36, right after the hint of horns, and those glorious strings, listen to the first line sung by the male/female chorus. This never made it into the movie. This is FRANK’s rendition. This makes me sigh… Judy’s makes me cry…But Judy didn’t sing this…Listen closely.. Thank you again. I’m Over the Rainbow…🌈 πŸ™‹πŸ».

      • Thanks Angela, I’ve never heard Frsnk’s version of this. My favorite is Judy singing while her Liza looks on–that gives me goose bumps. πŸ˜’πŸ‘™. No yellow bikni, but they had this one.πŸ˜€

        • Hey Earl, It’s hard to catch, but I wanted you to hear it, because they sing, 🎢”When all the world is a hopeless JUMBLE ..”🎢 I just felt it was good for a smile…. πŸ‘™ Pink polka dot…! πŸ‘™

  7. Pink polka dot, but they show up Purple….LOL…Like our women in the puzzles! πŸ™‹πŸ»

  8. Okay Steve & Earl: “We’re having fun sittin in the back seat kissin and a huggin with Fred”

  9. Steve & Earl, Just realized that I posted anonymous. I’m the one who sent that last post in response to Steve’s “Keep Your Hands on the Wheel” post.

    • Way to go Betty – I’ve corrupted another innocent soul, I see! πŸ˜‰
      Her date was wearing
      “Tan shoes with pick shoelaces,
      A polka-dot vest, and man oh man
      tan shoes with pink shoelaces
      and a big Panama with a purple hatband”

      And for the party after the beach, “A white sport coat, and a pink carnation”.

      (Too late to say “Don’t get me started!”)

  10. Yikes!! That song was popular when I was a senior in high school and attending my senior prom! Wore a white sport coat and a pink carnation– to match my date’s pink carnation corsage, which actually smelled like carnations.. Today those posies have little floral smell. Or is it just because my nose and it’s ability to detect odors has got old?

    • “Seven Little Girls”? Oy! Methinks Fred had delusions of grandeur! Still, the days of bench seats and no seatbelts, Right?

      “If you took all the girls I knew
      When I was single
      And brought them all together
      for one night (in the back seat)
      I know they’d never match
      my sweet imagination
      Everything looks worse
      in black and white”

      Should have posted “Kodachrome” when Paul and I were discussing his father and my wife working at Kodak in Rochester.

    • Didn’t know until looking it up just now that Jimmy Buffet has a song called “A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean” – ha!
      Great Minds recall the same songs.

  11. Hi Earl, Good morning! Steve kind of blurred his lyrics here…Got a few songs going on. In fact y’day, when you were talking “Yellow Bikini”, he gave you a verse from “7 Little Girls”! Here we got “Pink Shoelaces” and “A White Topcoat”! Whole lotta music goin’ on! Yea, they say age can affect the senses, but who knows? Maybe the memories have a lot to do with it too…πŸ’ πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Guten morgan, liebchen.
      You have the advantage of me! I had forgotten that the song title was “Seven Little Girls”. But the switch in songs was intentional, to get Earl’s eyes off his bikini emoji.
      And it’s Sportcoat, not topcoat (Autoincorrect?).

      Before I go out for my coffee –
      With your obviously vast love of puns and wordplay, I got to wondering whether you had ever heard these – they are an A version and a B version of the same title on the same album:

      They say the left side of the brain
      Dominates the right
      And the right side has to labor
      Through the long and speechless night

      (Another songwriter who knows his science, like Donovan’s diamonds in the sea caused by phosphorus).

      They say that the left side of the brain
      Controls the right
      They say that right side
      Has to work hard all night
      Maybe I think too much for my own good
      Some people say so
      Other people say, β€œNo no”
      Truth is, you don’t think as much as you could 🎡

  12. Steve, Good morning. There’s too much here, and it doesn’t relate to the puzzle, so I’m going to the other page.

    • Hi Lucy. Read about that. Hope the weather holds up. Take care. πŸ™‹πŸ»
