THEY SPENT THE DAY WITH THEIR DAUGHTER’S CHILDREN AND HAD A – – –

Good morning everyone and happy Monday! Mr. Hoyt, our Jumble wordsmith, decided to start the week off with some interesting clue word choices. DOILY and ROTATE both took an extra second to figure out but neither word posed much of a challenge. I’m going out on a limb by picking ROTATE as the most difficult anagram, but it could very well be DOILY. With all of the clue words out of the way, it was time to move on to the cartoon.
Mr. Knurek is definitely in the holiday spirit with his first Christmas cartoon of the season! Looking at just the cartoon, we see a group of 6 characters that are in the process of decorating their Christmas tree. Reading the dialogue and sentence we learn that two of the characters are named Poppy and Lee Lee and they have a tradition of decorating the tree together. Alarm bells were ringing in my head upon seeing the unique wording of the sentence bringing “grandchildren” instantly to mind. Looking at the letter layout, GRAND was in there leaving a simple 4-letter jumble of TIME for the finish.
This quick Monday puzzle may not have been much of a stumper, but the charming cartoon leaves you with a warm feeling that only happens this time of year. Have a magnificent Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow! 🙂
