HHCNU – HUNCH

HRTTU – TRUTH

ENGLED- LEGEND

AINAGU – IGUANA

CARTOON ANSWER: Β HOW DO THEY SAY HELLO IN THE ALPS?

HHTRHEEIG Β – – – Β “HIGH” THERE

Bonjour, Everyone! Β THE ALPS! Β  STEP right UP…!!

🎢”YODEL-AY-HEE-HOO…”🎢…That’s it, just a simple little YODEL this morning. Set the mood….I mean, we all know Yodeling is a cry for ALP, right? And that’s where we are today, HIGH up THERE in the ALPS! IGUANA say something right from the start…TRUTH be told, I’m no fan of mountain climbing. Between the Vertigo, No desire to go…(and the shoes), it’s just not something I’ve EVEREST SPIREd to. BUTTE, hey, that’s just my oPINion, (Although I have a HUNCH some of you out there may share my feelings). Don’t get me wrong. I like the Mountains: the beauty, the majesty, the whole LEGEND..(wait for it..) ARY aspect of them…BUTTE again, it’s just my ALTITUDE that if God wanted me to CLIMB mountains, He’d have COMPASSated in another way. You know, made me a little BOULDER. And KNOT so CRESTless, and a lot less ROUGH around the EDGES! HA…! ARETE, let’s not BELAY this any longer…Our puzzle: No new words today, IGUANA believe you remember CEILING them before. ASCENTially, easy enough, right? Our cartoon: Two couples, meeting and “Greeting”, devil may CAIRN, at the top of the French Alps. (I say “French” Alps, because one guy’s sPEAKing French). Little clues…”view from ‘here’..”, “say hello”…So, STEEPing with the theme…”HIGH” THERE! Another PUNctuation solve! CHIMNEY! We’ve seen a lot of these lately, right? GRANITE, no JUGgernaut here, but CHALK it UP to the Jumble boys knowing we like the little HOOK! Ok, the eye candy. Today I’m going with what I don’t SCREE. Where’s the French guys TREKking pole? WATERs he kidding? The CRUX of the matter is how’d he SCALE the mountain without one? He really BETA get a GRIP on things!
Ok, Folks, I’ve CRAGged this out long enough today. To SUMMIT UP, I’ll say…Let’s KNOT SLACK off…Let’s set our SIGHTS a little HIGHER…
And always, always…ROCK ON! Enjoy your day! ⛰⛏ πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Yea, Iguana you don’t see every day. I’m doing well, thank you. Every morning after Judge hits a homer is a good one for me! You know I love my Mets, but you can’t get blood from a stone! πŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. When he saw the IGUANA staring at him, he had a HUNCH that there might be some TRUTH in the LEGEND that the spirits of the dead live on in the animals around us.
    Easy solve today and when I saw all those “haitches” was well on the climb to solution. You reached the acme today Angela with your puns I can only add that I missed a reference to “The Night of the Iguana.”
    Gorgeous up here and we have had four days with no rain!🌞🚴 ⚾️. An homage to your love of baseballπŸ‘

  2. Good morning, Earl. Those H’s were HALL over the place, right? You have soared to all new HEIGHTS with your sentence today! Your imagination FLOORs me! (No pun intended)! And I truly appreciate your compliment, as well as “climb” and “acme”! (They didn’t get PASSed me)! “Night of the Iguana” did ‘slither’ by me this morning, but after I went with, “I guana” say something”, I figured I already SCALEd that one! LIZ-ARD let live! πŸ˜‚
    Beautiful here also, I hope you enjoy the day! β˜€οΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. Good morning. Belated HAPPY BiIRTHDAY to Lelia and a quick recovery for Jerry. Can only hope that time does heal all wounds for him. Now back to the puzzle at hand. Today’s jumble was an easy solve with iguana taking a couple of extra minutes. After looking at all those letters it was a quick read. There is nothing more spiritual than being on a high mountain top at night surrounded by snow with the stars fully out. The sight is breath taking and so peaceful. You do feel closer to God. There are so many great wonders out there. Until tomorrow stay well.

      • By the way Angela ,years ago I would never never watch or listen to the Yankees. Especially when the dodgers were still here. But, when the Mets were so bad it was nice listening to the Yankees on radio in the car especially when they were st their peak. WFAN morning guys say you can’t like two different teams but they are wrong. When they play the Mets naturally I root for them The Mets I’m sorry to say is boring. At least with the Yanks there is excitement

      • Hey Paul. I was raised a Mets fan. My Father was a Brooklyn Dodger fan, and waited patiently for the Mets to come. Yankees were strictly taboo! I think you can appreciate two different teams. And probably like them also. But rooting for two is a tough call, you know? Sadly, the Mets keep breaking my heart, but I’m still a Mets fan. Thing is, this year with Aaron Judge…what can I say? He’s brought the excitement back to Baseball. So what I do is record the Yankee games…then I just fast forward and only watch when he’s at the plate! (And then I go to Mass and ask for forgiveness)! Some habits die hard!…LOL.. Hope you’re enjoying your day! βšΎοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

  4. No problem with clue words, however, answer tripped me. I saw the word “greet” and with three h’s and an i left for a four letter word; threw in the towel. Not usually a quitter but have a busy day. Have a terrific Tuesday! !🌞

    • Hey Moose,Yes,you surely are! Yanks and Red Sox? Be still my heart! You may be a first!

I never strayed before this year, this is all new unexplored territory for me, watching the Yankees! And one of my brothers is extremely upset with me! Seriously! I told him, “Shake it off…it’s just because of Judge”! He called me a disgrace! LOL..”Gotta love Sports, and the emotion it wroughts”, right? πŸ˜‰ βšΎοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

  5. Hi, all! Jerry read the cartoon question to me as I was waking up, and I immediately said, β€œHigh, there!” I solved first 3 words with him telling me the letters as I ate breakfast (which is rare for me because I am visual not auditory) but had to self-jumble IGUANA on my napkin. I’m thinking that someone commented recently about our having animals/insects/birds a lot lately & Steve replying that it’s that time of year, so thank goodness for the IGUANA. LOL
    Thank you again for Happy Birthday wishes including Carolyn yesterday and Paul today. Paul, I just received one on the phone. Just one more to go from the youngest granddaughter.

  6. HI, Steve!! Thanks for my 2 dancing songs on my birthday, Beatles & Joni. I immediately asked Jerry if I could have this dance, which he declined as usual because of not liking to dance, but he smiled as I danced & laughed while asking.
    Yesterday I enjoyed your new word BONKER instead of β€œbroken” so from now on rather than being mad, nuts, crazy, bewitched, bothered, or bewildered, I am going to be β€œBONKER.” LOL

    • Yet another thing Jerry and I have in common! Are you *sure* he’s not a long lost relative? You’ll have to do the dancing for both of us. Here’s one more:

      🎡 “Bring her boots of leather, she will dance for him.
      Shyly from a feather fan, she’ll glance at him.” 🎡

      Jerry Garcia would have turned 75 today. The SF Giants have their annual Grateful Dead Appreciation day this Thursday.

      Till tomorrow.

    • Probably better to be BONKER than this:

      “I’m wild again
      Beguiled again
      A simpering, whimpering child again
      Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, am I”

        You’d need a parasail(?) but I don’t think either of us would like that.
