Jumble Answers for 8/25/2017







Good morning, Everyone!     🐚  SHELL WE DANCE? 🐚

🎶”For goodness sakes, I got the hippy hippy shakes. Yeah I got the shakes, I got the hippy hippy shakes, I can’t sit still, with the hippy hippy shakes… Well I’ve been shakin’ to the left, shakin’ to the right, you do the hippy shake shake With all of your might…”🎶 I’ve always wondered how Hawaiian women MOVE their HIPS like this. I’ve tried…many times. It’s an art, and maybe my ART ‘ain’t in it, because it just ends up…”HULA my kidding”! The last time I tried, I was with my friend Lou. It went something like this: ME: “LUAU, I think I broke my HIP…” Lou: “Geez, what a WAIST of time…” Anyway…let’s SAIL on to our words…POUCH, IRONY, ✔️✔️. PILLAR…Blink, blink. It’s HIGHLY likely the R threw me off…MOVING along; our cartoon. Hawaii, with the tiki lamps, the sun setting, and the one female SAILOR wondering…How do Hawaiian women move their HIPS like this…?! Jeff’s got the men jumping through HOOPS, understandably so. Who wouldn’t marvel at the way these dancers MOVE. The males are impressed, (the female perplexed…), but they all agree, HOORAY! “HIP, HIP HOORAY”! ISLE give it to you, Jumble Guys, you’ve LEId it on us once again! My eye candy today? I like the DIXIE CUP flung into the air. It’ll probably fly away. There it goes…Here today, gone to MAUI!
So, it’s Friday, Folks! Best SWISHES for a great weekend…and ISLE be seeing you…ALOHA! 🌴🐚 🙋🏻

Prayers for Texas 🙏🏻

  1. The HIGHLY respected PILLAR of the men’s secret society, spoke with more than a little IRONY when accused of deliberately losing the velvet POUCH containing the Master’s sash and sacred amulet.
    The only word which did not come immediately was PILLAR. Perhaps the double “l” caused the uncertainty? Solution was a tropical breeze and no lava rocks were thrown in frustration this Friday morn. Have a POIfect day everyone. (Perhaps non New Yorkers will need help with that awful pun🤔 )

    • Hi, BJ. Yes, that’s what I wrote. The Dixie Cup flung into the air. My “eye candy” for the day. Agree, the drawing’s great! Have a great day! 🌴🙋🏻


  2. Good afternoon. First off,thank you Angela for your suggestion on how to bring up today’s blog. I read yesterday’s remark and tried what you said and low and belhold it worked. I was getting ready to go out again without anything showing so I remembered you said something and thought I should look again. Glory Days,Oh wait a minute. ! That was yesterday. Today’s entire puzzle was fairly easy. As to the cartoon answer my mind kept thinking it had to be a Hawaiian word for the first two. I came up with PHI twice but,that’s Greek. Then like a lighting bolt. All I have to do is switch the three letters around. The clue was in their hips Hooray. Until tomorrow stay well.

  3. Hi all – OMG. Hello, Sailor! I think I’ll just shut up today, or my tongue will be too sore from biting it.
    Eye candy, INDEED! Well, maybe just this (is the sun disappearing again? I hear E-Calyps-o music):

    🎵”If you ever go down Trinidad
    They make you feel so very glad
    Calypso sing and make up rhyme
    Guarantee you real good time

    Drinkin’ rum and Coca Cola
    Go down Point Koomahnah
    Both mother and daughter”🎵

    And given the clue answer, some Kingston Trio
    🎵”And all around her hips
    Sailed a fleet of battleships”🎵

    (I know, what happened to shutting up?)

  4. Well, I am glad to see that you are punning as usual. Actually, as I think about it, your exceptional punning is probably related to your ability to solve these jumbles so easily. I think there is definitely a correlation between these puzzles and punning, and probably superior intelligence too. Let’s see what my Dutch relatives have to say about this. Yup, they agree; in fact they said, “Dat Angela een erg slim meisje is!”

    • Dear Kind Eric. Thank you so much. You must know I appreciate all your compliments. And I do agree, that punning relates to solving the Jumble. But I have to say, you, Sir, PUNish me. I translate your statements, I reply to you in Dutch…and…niente (what my Italian relatives would say). I’m left SWAYING in the breeze…I’m left wondering WAHINE get back to me?…I’m left ..HULAlone. I just thought you should know…
      Maar ik dankuwel soort sir. 🙋🏻 Ciao…


  5. Hi, Mike et al! I had the cartoon answer immediately but POUCH was the only instant word for me. I had to quickly back into the other three.
    The cartoon brought back wonderful memories of attending evening luaus in Hawaii with yummy food & spectacular shows including hula dancing & guys dancing with fire sticks. We enjoyed the food (even the poi), clapped for the dancers, wept at the Arizona Memorial, enjoyed the weather, and felt totally relaxed in that paradise of beautiful tropical flowers.

    • Hi Lelia – About the pinball machine (I miscounted – I actually have nine in varied condition) – Were you looking for a particular machine that you two liked to play, or a general list of what’s available? The original manufacturers of Williams, Bally and Gottlieb are long since out of business. I bought used machines in good condition from route operators, distributors and private parties. Some sources have NOS machines – “New Old Stock”, which were bought new at the time but stored away and never set up or used. Others are “shopped out” or restored, with new rubber and cleaned parts.

      For looking up descriptions and pictures of virtually any machine ever built, use the Internet Pinball Machine Database at ipdb.org.


      • Steve, I am putting your answer to this in IOW. If it gets erased before you read it, I can copy & paste it again tomorrow.


      • Hi Lelia – I saw your posts here and in IOW, so no problem there. I’ll have a longer reply in IOW later in the weekend – for now, I’ll just say that yes, we have both been surprisingly well lately, and the pleasure is literally mine – it gives me a good feeling if I can help you with information, or just get a laugh. Talk to you later!
