Jumble Answers for 8/3/2017







Good morning, Everyone! πŸ–Œ An Auction… PICTURE THIS! πŸ–Œ

🎢”Well the AUCTIONEER was going about a mile a minute, He was takin’ bids and callin’ them out loud….And I guess I was really gettin’ in it, Cause I just shouted out above the crowd.. And I said..”Hey pretty lady why don’t you give me a sign! I’d give anything to make you mine o’ mine, I’ll do your biddin’ and be at your beck and call …I’ve never seen anyone lookin’ so fine, Man I got to have her she’s a one of a kind …I’m going once, I’m goin’ twice, I’m sold…”🎢

Ok, where do I begin? I’m no ART expert, and I know AUCTIONS speak louder than words…but I have no idea what to do here this morning! Is this NAKED DAVE? Is Jeff giving us ART IMITATING ART? I mean, CANVAS be real? Look, don’t get me wrong. There’s definitely something SKINtillating about a bald man. No BONES about it…And Mr. Hoyt is definitely an attractive man, BUTT, if this IS him? …PAL,ETTE’s not a good look! What were you THINKERing ? At least RODIN had the good sense to have him sit!…This is just TOLE much…I supPOSE I should just get to our words…IGLOO think we’ve seen them before, you’re right. I’m SEESAWing on the scrambles, VALET may be DEPICTed new. In our cartoon, Jeff’s DRAWn an AUCTION site, probably the one place where you can truly get something for NODDING. The bidders, (one of whom I believe to be Jeff himself), look a BID shocked. The AUCTIONeers are clHAMMERing for their attention. In my ESTIMATEtion, it’s obvious why no one’s GIVING it up to buy this PAINTING. Yes, it may be for a “WORDy cause”as the woman is PAINTiently saying, but…c’mon! Where would one HANG this? FRAMEous as Dave may be in the word world, why would one want this? (That’s a LOT of W’s, right)? “WHAT GIVES“?…And, OIL I can say is…that AUCTIONEER needs to WIPE that angry look off his face… His disFLESHure with the crowd is unCALLed for! He’s coming aCROSS kind ofΒ PEACHY, no? Ok, the eye candy? It has to be the GAVEL. Without it, I fear this would be the BIDDER end!

Great WORK today, Jumble Boys, albeit a tad SKETCHy! I’m really hoping I haven’t PAINTED myself into a corner here! … And Dave, you may be a MODEL of perfection, BUTT again, ifΒ thisΒ ISΒ youDon’t quit theΒ day job, πŸ˜‰ PICASSOΒ much can go wrong here!

Have a great day, Everyone! Spread the joy,Β TEXTURE loved ones! 🎨 πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Hey, Good morning ,Sports Fan! Missed you y’day!
      Giving up? What? You just going to BRUSH this off? πŸ–ŒπŸ™‹πŸ»

        • Ah, I get it now. I thought you meant you gave up on the solve. Loooong game y’day, huh? And then to get shut out…That thunder shook the Stadium! Better luck tonight..Enjoy your day! πŸ–ŒπŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Yanks really BRISTLED me last night. They should BRUSH up on hitting skills. Have a good day Angela.

        • HA! Good ones, Moose! Let’s hope they get some thunder in their bats tonight! You have a good day too. Ciao, Amico! βšΎοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Hey Moose, maybe our ex-Athletic Sonny Gray will give you a reason to smile today! We miss him here already.

      • Pitching has been good.lack of base hits with men on is the problem. Need a scorecard with the new faces.
        Ciao Angela. You’re doing a great job.

        • Yep, they’re leaving more men out there than me! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Just sayin’!! Lotta changes, let’s hope for the best…Ciao, Moose. And thank you, kind Sir! βšΎοΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. At the casino, the VALET parking was under a “faux” IGLOO and near the gigantic kids’ SEESAW which most parents thought was just PEACHY!
    Compound words sometimes give me grief and SEESAW slowed me down this AM. Otherwise not too much of a challenge to put me into a “blue period.”
    Got the e- mail today, MANET thanks for helping this Upstate REUBens get his lily pads in order🌈 πŸ‘β›ˆ

    • Good morning, Earl, How’re you? Guess what? Today, I didn’t get mine! And I wrote it! LOL..I have no idea why this randomly happens to some of us. You, Sir, are by no means a Rube, quite the contrary! Today’s words weren’t hard to solve, but to put into sentence form, I think a challenge. And as usual, you’ve come through with flying COLORS! Today’s puzzle was truly a “Work of Art”‘ no?
      And MANET wishes to you for a great day! πŸ–ŒπŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Hey Mike, Good morning. John Michael Montgomery? A good ole’ boy! I know it may not have fit the puzzle that well, but it’s the first thing that popped into my head this morning as soon as I read the word Auction. The name of the song is “Sold”. Thanks for putting in a BID! Have a great day! πŸ–ŒπŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. Not the answer that I expected, however, I did solve the puzzle. Have a great day! πŸ™‚

  3. 🎡”Doctor, my eyes tell what is wrong.
    Was I unwise, to leave them open for so long?” 🎡
    🎡”Don’t turn on the lights, cause I don’t WANNA see!” 🎡

    Ugh, can’t un-see that! What is this, “Jumble – The Body Edition?”
    Almost as gross as the San Jose Sharks entry. We’ll have to ask Mike if he saw anything comparable on those beaches he may be visiting.

    Angela, this is one day when we do NOT need any magnified pictures of eye-candy. And you almost predicted one of today’s words with GIGOLO on 8/1!

    PEACHY was difficult for me for some reason.

    🎡”I saw Esau sittin’ on a see-saw
    I saw Esau with my girl
    I saw Esau sitting on a see-saw
    Giving her a merry whirl
    When I saw Esau, he saw me
    And I saw red and got so sore
    So I got a saw and I sawed Esau
    Off that old see-saw” 🎡

    Have a great day, SEE you later!

    • Steve….LOL..Uh, “Don’t turn on the lights…”? That’s not in my version! And “Esau”? You reached way, way back for that one, huh? I don’t know why, but I thought I remember you saying you didn’t know the Ames Bros! Peachy? The Jumble or my pun? Gigolo? Shirley you jest! He’d starve to death. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      And Mike’s vacation? Remember he said HE’D give the clues? Play nice!
      Hope you’re having a great day, too! (Looking forward to seeing your man on the mound tonight)! πŸ–ŒπŸ™‹πŸ»

      • I hate to tell you, but 1956 isn’t way way back for some of us! πŸ˜‚
        No earlier than Elvis and “Don’t Be Cruel” (Hmmm.. come to think of it, maybe that’s appropriate! πŸ˜‚)

  4. Hi, all!! NOT my favorite Jumble ever. I echo Steve’s β€œUgh.” Easy words, quick solve, except for thinking β€œcheapy” as one who is too cheap to bid, which became PEACHY.
    Earl, a casino! Brilliant! Wondered where you’d combine those words, but after your pun using MANET, I thought your second pun was Sir Peter Paul Rubens, a Flemish artist born in Germany.
    Jerry said for me to send his thanks to all of you for your well wishes & anniversary wishes. THANKS!

    • Hi, Lelia. Sorry you didn’t really like today’s puzzle. Maybe tomorrow’s will be better. I thought it was cute and clever, even tho a little odd, right? And I’m sure Earl was referring to Rubens, he’s as clever as they come!
      Hope you had a good Anniversary! Take care! πŸ–ŒπŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Lelia, Angela, Earl:
      There’s a Monty Python skit called ‘Art Gallery’ in which two middleaged housewives and their children begin actually eating the paintings at the museum. Then the scene shifts…

      Cut to a book-lined study. At a desk in front of the shelves sits an art critic with a mouthful of Utrillo.
      (taking out stringy bits as he speaks) Mmmm… (munches) Well I think Utrillo’s brushwork is fantastic… (stifles burp) But he doesn’t always agree with me … (belches) Not after a Rubens, anyway … all those cherries … ooohh … (suddenly looks down) Urgh! I’ve got Vermeer all down my shirt…

  5. Steve, thanks for your Happy Anniversary yesterday and for adding a fifth dancing song to my birthday list. I have sung β€œI Could Have Danced All Night” hundreds of times. Love it! My 3 favorite musicals are My Fair Lady, Sound of Music, and Mary Poppins.
    Funny story: Jerry said he wanted to wait until later to celebrate our anniversary so I didn’t expect him to take me out yesterday. I said I’d go pick up something, but as I put my second shoe on, I heard him ask:
    Jerry: Where are you going?
    Lelia: Haven’t decided yet.
    Jerry: I guess I could take you to Cracker Barrel.
    Lelia: Great!
    Steve: Watta guy!!

    • Hi Lelia – That *is* funny. As expressive as an old Yankee farmer – and that’s a compliment!

      About your hearing dance music at the store yesterday:
      I’ve always joked about hearing rock and roll on the store PA systems when we got older, and I’ve mentioned a couple that I’ve heard lately, but this morning I heard one of the most appropriate – the Grateful Dead’s “Touch of Grey”. Maybe a store worker knew that it was Jerry Garcia’s 75th birthday on 8/1 — or he’s going to the SF Giant’s Grateful Dead Appreciation night tonight.
