  1. My COUSIN was declared UNFIT to compete in the weight lifting competition because the only salt available to him had no IODINE and his doctor had the good SENSE to severely limit his physical exertion.

    Clue words and solution gave me no problems today but like Moose I had to stare at IODINE for longer than the others. Cartoon and the caption gave me SENTENCES fairly quickly—all those E’s did not slow me down, thankfully.

    The cartoon reflects the austerity and drabness of a prison very well. The conversation also highlights the possible problems between two prisoners who are very different–hard-core vs. professorial.

    Have a fruitful Friday and prepare for a great fall weekend.

    • Good morning, Earl. Iodine’s STINGing us all, so far. Amazing SENTENCE as always…And the austerity and drabness of the puzzle is what led to my dead brain CELLS this morning. I wuz ROBBED! Great weekend to you too! 🙋🏻


  2. 🎶The warden threw a party in the county jail, the prison band was there and they began to wail. The band was jumpin’ and the joint began to swing…You should’ve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing..Let’s rock, everybody let’s rock, everybody in the old CELL block, was dancin’ to the JAILHOUSE Rock…🎶

    I’m going to CONfide in you, Folks. Today’s words were a bit of a STRETCH. Caught me off GUARD for a second or two. IODINE really stung! …And not to LIE-ABILITY had nothing to do with it…I’d just say that David raised the BAR on these. Great job, Dave! You STOLE the show! So, moving on to the cartoon, Jeff’s giving us a prison cell, and two new cell mates. Prisoner Left, seems to have already settled in, because I see a calendar hanging on the wall. Not the best art work but it does look like it’s made to SCALE. Prisoner Right seems a little tense, PENt up. APPREHENDsive perhaps, and a little CAGEy, too. He’s facing 20 years. Wow, he’s no CONtemporary! The dialogue tells us that he “likes his space”, and he “likes to read”; he has a BOOK. And then our question brings up CONversation. Hmm…These words, what’s the KEY? PUNctuation comes to mind. SPACE, READ, CONVERSATION…PERIOD! We’re talking “SENTENCES” here! Now THAT’S a pun! You just can’t make THEIF things up! Well, obviously Jeff did! So, with that done, I’m looking CLOSEr at Prisoner Right. Does he look familiar? Could he be a CELLebrity? Jeffery Tambor, maybe, from ARRESTED Development? HARD to tell..I wouldn’t bet my LIFE on it. Ok, eye candy. Not much here…I’m weighing the PROSE and CONS. I guess I’ll go back to the calendar. It says “Hang in There”. Yea, FINE, that’s the TICKET! So, there you have it, Folks! Our Friday puzzle. It’s a WRAP!
    Have a great day, Everyone! And thanks for being such a CAPTIVE audience! 🙋🏻


      • Thanks, Moose! LOL..In the JOINT..How’d I miss that one..? Brooklyn at its best! 😉 Off my game today…Like the Yanks last night…😔 🙋🏻


    • Off your game? Hardly my blog friend. The warden would have to put you in solitary and throw away the key to slam you down
      Neither inmate appears to be wearing a singlet. My test for you today. I’ll be curious (Yellow) to see if you get it.

      • LOL…And believe me, I’d enjoy the peace and quiet! Thank you, Earl. So, I had to go on line and study the cartoon. I first thought a restraint of some kind, but as a rule, I don’t think there’s any restraints used while in cells. So, I’m going with something we spoke of a while ago, that brought back a memory, and a little lump to my throat. Is it an undershirt of some kind? “Peeking” out from under the shirts? And Curious Yellow! LOL…🙋🏻


    • 🎵’Shifty Henry said to Bugs, “For Heaven’s sake,
      No one’s lookin’, now’s our chance to make a break.”
      Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, “Nix nix,
      I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks.” ‘🎵

      Great stuff from Lieber and STOLE-er!


      • And “Shifty Henry” was a real person..

        ….He is mentioned by name in a verse of “Jailhouse Rock” by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller:🎶 “Shifty Henry said to Bugs, for heaven’s sake, no one’s looking, now’s a chance to make a break.”..🎶 🙋🏻


  3. Good National Coffee Day back at You all. I’m doing my part, I’m on my second cup. Ditto like everyone else so far. Iodine took as long to get as the other three words combined. The cartoon answer was a breeze. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good morning, Paul. I’m on #4! Iodine isn’t something you hear about anymore. I wonder if it’s still sold. Glad you enjoyed the puzzle! Have a great day!


      • Angela—you are a star. Yes, the Brits say singlet instead of undershirt—I won’t mention the more vulgar term that some Americans use. I think of Marlon Brando and the military style when I hear the word.
        Off to run some errands, Later.

      • HA! Thank you, not even close! Although I have been accused of being “out there”! 😂 Singlet..I like it! Marlon Brando? The Young Lions? 🙋🏻


  4. Iodine tripped me up as well. Had to back into it after solving the cartoon which did not prove to be a difficulty. When I think of Marlon Brando and undershirts, “A Streetcar Named Desire” comes to mind …Stella!!

      • Earl LOL..I told you I wasn’t running on all CELLynders this morning. The only “military” movie I could think of with Brando was “The Young Lions”! I COULDN’T be a CONtender! 😉🙋🏻


    • Good morning, Betty I agree 100%. Undershirt=Marlon Brando. I mistook Earl’s meaning. I thought he was referring to Brando AND the military, not OR the military. I think after that movie came out, women all over the country wished thier name was Stella! 😉 Iodine seems to be the “word” of the day! Hope you have a great one! .🙋🏻


    • Betty, I think you may have meant “STELLLLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!”

      He was “thrilling”, wasn’t he? And we have always depended upon the kindness of strangers for help in solving the Jumbles.


  5. OMG Angela, National Coffee Day? I’m glad I’m safely (I think) 3000 miles away.

    Hi all – Well, that was interesting. I learned some English because I completely blew the third word and came up with SENTIENCE as the answer (I was thinking CUSHION instad of COUSIN – just being too fast and careless.) I wasn’t aware of “sentience” having a meaning of compassion or respect, only consciousness, as when we’ve seen androids in the cartoon become self-aware. Inadvertently traded a correct answer for a new word meaning – I’ll take that, gladly.

      • I didn’t see a single sign at Peet’s, and had to go online to see their offer – 25% off beans and a free cup. Not worthy of them or the occasion, I’d say.

      • I know every place was offering something. And you’re a regular, too! Hmm..Seems like they CONned you patrons today..🙋🏻


  6. Hi, all! If I described my solve I would sound like a parrot, so I will just say ditto except to agree that IODINE took some extra Jumbles, and the 6 consonants & 3 E’s for the cartoon solve were quick & EEEasy.
    Loved all the comments. Enjoyed your post, Angela, and I liked the fact that Earl thought of the IODINE in salt rather than the medication. Some sharp thinking going on here. Enjoy your day!
    We are headed to a doctor for pre-op work. See ya’.
