Jumble Answers for 09/12/2017








Good Tuesday morning everyone!  The clue word choices were definitely more challenging than yesterday’s lineup, but they were still on the easier side.  SCROLL would be my pick for the most challenging word to decipher if I was forced to pick just one.  Moving along to the cartoon, we arrive at a laundromat that has washing machines and a folding table along with the peculiar addition of 3 stationary bicycles.  Spin cycle came to mind immediately and I wrote out the letters just to make sure my hunch was correct.  After I crossed out the letters, I had an extra S which I quickly added to cycle making it plural.  A very fast solve and a funny cartoon make today’s Jumble perfect for the novice player.  Did you notice the writing on the sleeve of the woman’s shirt?  I believe it’s a Jumble brand cycling shirt but I’ll let you decide for yourself.  Have a terrific Tuesday and I’ll see you tomorrow!

  1. Good morning, Mike. Great post. I went with the “brand” shirt too. Whether it is or not, im sure it’ll all come out in the WASH! πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. 🎢”What would I do without your smart mouth? Drawing me in, and you kicking me out? You’ve got my head SPINNING no kidding, I can’t pin you down. What’s going on in that beautiful mind…I’m on your magical mystery RIDE ..And I’m so DIZZY don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright…”🎢
    Now this would be a great idea! Getting BUFFED while your clothes get FLUFFED! I’ve done the SPIN classes, but since I do laundry at home, I’d have to SIT this one out…but we’ll TORQUE about that later…Now, our words: PUPIL GENTLY gave itself away, right? We could SEE that one immediately. And even though we’ve seen SCARF and SCROLL before, today Dave put a new SPIN on things. Great scrambling. On to the cartoon. We’re at a Laundromat, but this one has SWITCHED GEARS. Instead of these patrons sitting and biding their time, Jeff has them RIDING their time! FEEL THE BURN, while the clothes TURN! The women are SPINning on the “CYCLES”, the machines are SPINning through their CYCLES…”SPIN CYCLES”. Done, with no RESISTANCE! Very creative, Guys! Cycling is fun, I take a STAND for my stationary BIKE. I got into it because I was TIREd and dePRESSed, and my doctor handed me a Rx that said, TRICYCLINE. So I did…And it changed my life…I’d recommend it to anyone. That’s why I’d love to be the SPOKESperson for this place. I’m working on a spiel…”Do you feel PRESSed for time, but still looking to get TRIM? Has life become a vicious CYCLE, and you’re caught up in the rat RACE? Find you can’t HANDLE BARS, but WASH you could find that GEARly beloved? Well come join us for some Meet and SHEET! Put a little WINCE in your RINSE! Bring the TIDE and take a RIDE…We’re putting a whole new SPIN on the singles scene”…MILES to go, huh? Like I said, I’m still working on it….Ok, eye candy. There’s the guy trying to GET a GRIP on the bike, but I’m going with the little Jumble patch on the woman’s shirt. I guess Jeff’s wearing his “ART on his SLEEVE…”
    Gotta run. If I don’t get my LAUNDRY done, I’ll have no atTIRE…
    Have a great day, Everyone…🚴🏻 πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Think of all the extra laundry people will be doing by having them cycle. A very wise move by the proprietors! I saw you hit TIDE but I thought of GAIN, lol. Fun as always to read, Angela. Thank you!

      • I thought of opening a LaundroMEET. Everyone told me I was SPINNING my WHEELS, that it’d never WASH. I still think it’s a good idea. I went with TIDE to rhyme with RIDE. Although GAIN would have been great with PAIN….Claim that…”No pain, no gain…” I’d add it in if I were you! πŸ˜‚πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • And “Take a LOAD off”! πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Darn..! Tuesday morning quarterbacking! πŸ˜‰

  3. When the PUPIL began to SCROLL through choices for a high-fashion SCARF, she was GENTLY reprimanded by her tutor and told to go back to the geography site..
    Relatively easy clue words today, although I had to look at SCARF for a short while and struggle to get “fracas” out of my brain. Did not need to write out letters but also had to add an S to cycles to make the solution correct.
    Sorry to obsess on paunches but my attention was drawn to the cyclist in the back of the cartoon who has a paunch and looks perplexed about what this contraption in front of him is for and probably could use some exercise along with his clean clothes.

    • Good morning, Earl. We’ve had it with the paunches, right? But it’s a start, he’ll GET a GRIP on it, I’m sure. You came to mind this morning because I still think about the “woman in the laundromat” who distracted you that morning! I think you may have called her enchanting…πŸ˜‰ Great sentence as always. πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Always nice to be thought of early in the morning. Since I do use laundromats I was intrigued by the possibility of having stationary bikes there–I could kill two birds with one stone–or possibly three if I could do the Jumble while pedaling and watching the dryers go round and round. I think it might be a little much to ask for though. My place has been purchased by new owners who have made it a pleasure to visit– clean, new machines, comfy chairs, great music, and proprietors who are THERE.
        Have a great day and enjoy the lovely fall weather.

        • Earl, You know I’ve mentioned numerous times how I look forward to your post every morning. You and Moose have become my coffee and OJ! Can’t start the day without them! But the day I’m speaking of doesn’t ring a bell? You were discussing the puzzle with a woman in the laundromat? I gave you a πŸ’ƒπŸ»emoji? LOL…I may just have to go back and search for it! LOL…I was serious when I said I wanted to open a LaundroMEET. I was thinking like a wine bar in a laundromat. But no one was on board with me, so the idea went down the DRAIN! Your place now sounds very enjoyable. The weather is beautiful…Have a great day! πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • Hey Earl, FRACAS was my first thought too. Fashion mavens that we are, I’m glad you went with the high-end PASHMINA (ask Angela!)

      • Steve–I know what pashmina is and I wish I had had the brain power this AM to use it. But maybe Angela will chime in with
        some additional info–she’s super good at that.
        Angela–one morning, had to be Thuesday, that’s laundry day, I was temporarily stuck on a word or the solution and blamed my slowness on a charming lady at the laundromat. Don’t recall any more than that and I think it’s best left there.πŸ˜‡

        • Don’t worry, Earl; I won’t tell anyone that you knew that, lest you get your ‘guy’ card revoked.

        • Earl. I’m not surprised you know what a pashmina is. Steve and I joke about it because the first time I mentioned it months ago, he likened it to some kind of animal stew…which now is stuck in my head every time I go to wear it. He was a tad graphic if I remember correctly. But I thought we had an agreement not to mention it anymore! LOL…Steve’s like one of my brothers..”Why don’t you just call it a d–n scarf”?
          Ah hah..You do remember! Yes, that was it..The charming lady at the laundromat. A Billy Joel song in the making! I only remember it so well, because I couldn’t help thinking how exciting to be charmed so early in the morning by a woman, and I envied you! Well, not the woman part…you know what I mean! LOL .And as you wish, we’ll leave it at that…πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ» Be well, Sir. πŸ™‹πŸ»

  4. Good morning. I’d say your right on all counts Mike. After looking at your picture of the sleeve it would be a good bet it’s jumble. Also the puzzle was easy with scroll that wasn’t an instant read. The cartoon answer was a snap. Until tomorrow stay well.

  5. An easy jumble again, today. Had the puzzle solved before the words. No more laundromat for us. The project from hell was finally completed on Sunday. Gotta love 100 year old homes!

  6. Easy solve again today. I can’t make out the details you mentioned either yesterday or today. The photos are just too small in my paper.So thanks for enlightening me.Have a good day everyone.

  7. Hi all – Got the words, but had to write the letters for the answer.

    Two thoughts:
    Why not just hook up the cycles to the dryers and conserve energy? There is a customized pinball machine I’ve seen at shows
    that requires you to sit on one of these bikes and pedal sufficiently fast before it will light up and let you play.

    And, by the time their laundry is finished, they’ll need to wash their exercise clothes, sort of defeating the purpose.

    • But Steve, They’d have to wash them regardless of where they were, right? This is so much more convenient, don’t you think?…
      It shouldn’t be a DETERgENT..πŸ˜‰πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Not to overthink this here (…well Ok, that’s definitely what I’m doing), their laundry will be done, but they’ll still be wearing sweaty gym clothes that now have to be washed. Enough of that THREAD. πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

        • Grasshopper..Not to backPEDAL, but if they were in a gym, wouldn’t they still have sweaty gym clothes? It’s one set…Who runs a machine with one set of gym clothes? You’re right…Let’s CUT the THREAD…I’ll stop NEEDLING if you will…
          And don’t I recall someone mentioning wearing jeans and T-shirts until someone else mentions..MYSLOB? Hmm, let me think…
          πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ (Three at least, no)? …πŸ˜‰πŸ™‹πŸ»

  8. Another day of got the words did not get the puzzle answer. Maybe the brain is joining other parts of my body that have stopped working!

  9. Hi, all! Upon my first reading of the cartoon question & seeing the exercise bikes, I guessed β€œwash cycles” because in Arkansas we called a laundromat a β€œwashateria.”
    After reading the dialog in which the word β€œwash” was used twice, I knew my answer was incorrect but waited for my word-solve to change it. All 4 words came clean fast with no self-jumbling.

    Mike, my vote for you registered again today!! Yippee! One of these days I am going to learn to give you a β€œlike,” which will be nice but an understatement. I have noticed that not just me but almost everyone has said we β€œlove” your words in your daily post.

    Off to lunch with daughter and then back here to change summer flower arrangements and dining table center-piece to fall flowers, a pumpkin Josh West made for me & a pine cone turkey his mom made for me, both made in kindergarten.

    • Thank you, Lelia! Enjoy your lunch and let us know where you went. You’re always great with the details. πŸ˜‰

      It’s funny that you mentioned the fall decor as we changed ours out on Sunday. It’s hard to believe we’re almost into the middle of September!

    • Lelia – You mentioned “Bananagrams” yesterday. From Wikipedia: “Bananagrams is a word game invented by Abraham Nathanson of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, wherein lettered tiles are used to spell words.”

      That’s P’tucket, not PAW-tucket. Who knew?
