  1. There was hardly a MURMUR in the school ANNEX when the teacher confiscated a DIRTY LAPTOP from one of the students.
    No problems with clue words or the solution this Saturday morn. I was a little intimidated when I saw the quotation marks and the number of letters, but after looking at the cartoon, the answer was
    obvious. Great photo of real pandas.
    Have a safe and sane Saturday everyone.

    • Good Morning Earl. Agreed, easy, breezy. And I’m glad to see you’re not letting those ” ” stop you in your TRACKS! Love your sentence. Dirty laptop so on point. I’m constantly on the kids to wipe down those keys! Wishing you a good one! ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

    • Good morning, Harry. Yes, we get it..pretty BLACK and WHITE solve today!
      Good luck tonight..Go Hoosiers! Have a good one! ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

    • Good Morning, Caroline! Great puzzle, right? BEARly caused a ripple! And I think Laptop may be the zinger today…Hope you have a great day! ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  2. ๐ŸŽถBut now the novelty is wearing thin, we spend most time ARGUING…It was all so easy then. It’ll never be again…Oh how soon we changed..Oh how soon we changed But now the novelty is wearing thin…๐ŸŽถ

    ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ When I went to look for property in the beautiful sunshine state
    I saw a lot of bamboo that was used to decorate…
    One house was all in peach and green, with rooms filled with rattan
    I knew that was the one and so the paperwork began
    Wanting all the furniture, a contract ANNEX we did add
    And signed and sealed we wrapped it up, and then I was so glad…
    But when I came back to NY it didn’t seem quite right…
    I’d sit up with my LAPTOP searching decor through the night.
    My friends all started MURMURing that I was on a mission..
    And they were right because I changed the whole house but the kitchen…
    I brought the beauty found down there and we got down and DIRTY
    And slowly transformed the NY house into one real light and airy
    And bamboo, rattan, wicker from the Philippines did come…
    A lot of work, but worth it after the PANDA-MODIUM! ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿผ

    Bamboo..hoo..hoo? Not today! Except maybe for LAPTOP. One of those combo/portmanteau kind of words that can give you a boo-hoo-hoo; it may have bamboozled you a bit, but the rest of our words are easy, breezy. Today Jeff’s brought us to the rainforests of China, and we see a group of Giant Pandas fighting over Bamboo. C’mon…PANDERing to such nonsense! Share, guys, there’s more than enough to go around. Anyway, the dialogue tells us that it’s a constant battle, totally insane…Lets face it Folks..The solve’s right there…This is PANDA-MONIUM! Plain and simple, BLACK and WHITE! Great one, Dave. This ones stuPANDAs! Ok, eye candy…I’m CHINA get something here, but it’s BEARly showing me anything…I could STALK around this, but even after I exPANDAed the pic, I’m still not getting a good REED on it, so I’ll pass today. Today, BYE candy. So, There you have it, Folks, Done!
    Have a great day, Everyone! And, SHOOT, don’t let anyone ever BAMBOOZLE you…๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  3. Good morning. For me the words were not easy. From 1-4, I was able to get them in the order of 3,1,4 2. Laptop had me buffaloed for almost an hour. Such an easy word and yet it took forever to get. Then looking at the cartoon,there was a complete blank for another hour. Catching my daughterinlaw going out the door I asked for her insight. It took her less than a minute to get the answer. God bless her. Seeing the answer,l have to admit it was fairly easy. Just have a thing regarding quotations. Until tomorrow stay well.

  4. I figured out the answer beforehand, but had trouble getting “laptop’. I look forward to solving the Jumble every day! Chuck

    • Good Morning, Chuck. Welcome! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป I don’t believe I’ve had the pleasure…Nice to meet you. You’re now #9 on my Laptop List. As I said, one more and I’m selling…You’re in good company…Some of my “best friends” couldn’t get it PROGRAMmed this morning!
      All of us here start our day off with the Jumble…and it’s always good to hear from another devotee! Have a great day, Sir! ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

      • I would love to have your jumble mug. Thank you for posting answers. Sometimes I get stumped.

        • You’re very welcome, Shirley. Always glad to help. I’ll make sure Mike gets your name for the drawing. Have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  5. Thanks Mike on the extra cute picture. Angela,your thoughts were on cleanliness. Mine were on porn being on the laptop. What was Earl thinking when he gave us that 4.0 sentence? Yesterday I called my friend for her to post her stories regarding raccoons and possums she had in her garage. I guess she opted not to. She didn’t know that the city dropped off the animals in various places to deal with the rat problem. Of course it was never revealed but, that was the rumor. Supposedly from people in the know.

    • Hey, Brooklyn, Good morning! You make number 8 that’s telling me about getting “KEYED UP” over Laptop! I’m figuring once it hits 10…we sell! And I thought we were getting over the fear of those pesky little ” ” ! The “Quotation Trepidation”. You’re so much bigger than they are! Ah, you know how it is, Paul..”Sometimes you eat the BEAR, and sometimes the BEAR eats you…” There’s always tomorrow! Have a good one, Bud! ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

    • Wait a minute, wait a minute…!!! What am I REEDing here? Brooklyn…you’re killin’ me! ROTFL…Porn? Here? And from the Church going man? Like the old story…Those who watch porn, and those who say they don’t??!! What’s going on here? Why just y’day, you were in a cocoon, and today….?! You’re too much! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Ok, enough there…Now, is this other thing true? Releasing the WILD LIFE to kill off the VILE LIFE? I never knew…We need to talk….๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

      • To me it was evident that Earl was referring to smut on the laptop. And yes that was the scuttlebutt that was going around at least five years ago. It seemed to work. Hardly ever see them running around except maybe Coney Island or the U A theater off the Belt Parkway. One or two theaters had a big problem with mice. Every once in awhile a patroon would scream that a rat ran over their feet and I would assure them it was only a mouse not a rat. Got to admit it was funny at the time. Naturally they would get their money back and a couple of free passes. That always worked. You never know what’s crawling around your feet in the dark. Now that the thought is in your head, I bid you farewell.

        • Paul, I hope you know I was just breaking your shoes here….I hope I didn’t offend you. I apologize if I did. Just joking. And I thought Earl was going for dirty keys! As I said, I’m always wiping down the kids keyboards…I can see by the UA theatre, it’s right by the water…And I guess Coney Island may have always had an issue, but I must admit, I have never seen either a mouse or a rat down there….Now to get rid of the images…๐Ÿ˜‚
          Hope we’re ok, Brooklyn…Ciao! ๐Ÿญ ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  6. Blind solve to the puzzle, but annex and laptop vexed me for a bit this morning. Maybe it is Saturday Syndrome or still being on my first Americano and not being fully primed!

    Have a great day, all!

    • LOL…Ah, the old Americano Primo…Not the FIRST I’m hearing of it!!! Good Morning, John.
      And you made #10 on my Laptop List!! Laptops for sale…!
      Have a good one, and you may have coined a phrase…Saturday Syndrome! โ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  7. Laptop took me the longest to solve this morning, backed into it as I had figured out the cartoon answer first. Have a good Saturday everyone.

    • It’s a Laptop Landslide! Good Morning, Betty! Good to see you. Wishing you a good one, too! ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  8. Angela,l have no idea what you are talking about. I know you would never diss me on purpose. We are as good as gold. Better yet platinum.

    • Brooklyn, I would never want to diss you even by accident…As long as we’re good…โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  9. Hi all – Iโ€™ll just say hello and wish you all a good weekend, because my experience was the same as everyone elseโ€™s – Quick solve but took an extra minute to see LAP and then LAPTOP.

  10. Hi, all! Woulda had a one minute solve if I had remembered that MURMUR is not spelled โ€œmurmmurโ€ or โ€œmurmmerโ€ or โ€œmurmer.โ€ Thanks, Mike, for the beautiful panda picture.

    Angela, thanks yesterday for your โ€œGet some rest & pleasant dreams.โ€ I was doing just that when 2 granddaughters came over for a very pleasant chat and were still here when Joyce popped by after teaching and stayed the rest of the day; hence, my thanking you today. I said โ€œhenceโ€ because yesterday I jokingly teased Joyce that I still remembered her bringing her grammar book over here for a year while we proofread my book with her encouraging me to use โ€œthereforeโ€ with โ€œsemicolon, therefore, commaโ€ and the same with โ€œhence.โ€ We laughed & laughed at that.

    Paul, you are right, it was scary for our younger one, Diane, seeing a guy on their security tape trying to get into her home. The worst part is deciding to get out right now during the school year when she is so busy with teaching, but she is strong & determined; therefore, she will make it. She also has a huge incentive in the fact that she likes everything about the new house. Thanks for your thoughtful comments.

    Steve, your โ€œstandard jokeโ€ about how a California cop would handle a โ€œCalifornia stopโ€ make me laugh.

    • Lelia, you’re very welcome, as always. Hope you’re having a good one! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  11. Angela and Paul: Regarding the reference to a DIRTY LAPTOP in my sentence this morning. Since the setting was a school and this is a family blog, I meant that the LAPTOP itself was unclean not some content displaying on it. Perhaps seeing so many references to schools being closed and disinfected prompted the thought. Watching young people pass around their electronic devices, I can see all kinds of BUGS going from fingers to keys to noses and mouths, not just the flu.
    Sorry, guess I got carried away with my imaginings. ๐Ÿ˜ท ๐Ÿ˜ฑ ๐Ÿค’ ๐Ÿ‘น

    • Hey Earl. We’re all good. Being around kids so much, you’re right on point. Nothing imagined there, trust me…You have no idea! As I said earlier. I’m after them all the time. I carry all kinds of wipes with me…Paul gave you that 4.0.. So whatever he may have been thinking…it still ranked high! You’re both great guys, and the utmost gentlemen. Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine before the storm…Ciao! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

    • Earl,thanks for answering about your thought when you made that line. I guess with all the bad news lately I was thinking the worst. Steve, you did give me a good laugh with the cop remark yesterday. Youโ€™re very welcome Lelia.

      • Hey Paul, just so you donโ€™t feel like the only degenerate around here, I also thought โ€œinappropriate contentโ€ when I read about the laptop. Not that being in my company is going to make you feel any better, come to think of it. In the words of Brother Dave Gardner, โ€œI ainโ€™t proud.โ€

        • Grasshopper…Nobody went to “degenerate”. Way too…too..
          Just a little “interpretation differation”….๐Ÿ˜‰ And there’s always that lack of inflection.!! ๐Ÿ˜ท
          We’re all good here! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

          • I better let Paul be the judge of that! ๐Ÿ˜‚
            But I agree we are all good here, seems to me. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    • Earl. Doing my final sweep, and deleting the messages. Just caught your BUGS reference to Laptops. Better late than never…Kudos, Sir! Have a good night…See ya on the flip…๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  12. We are all good here, in more than one respect. But the different interpretations of my written words reinforce my belief that speaking directly to others, either an individual or group, is the best way to communicate. I have some serious misgivings about those who presently depend on texting, tweeting or other forms of social media to express themselves. Just my opinion, for what it’s worth.

      • I just got around to looking at today’s puzzle as I was on the road.Annex,dirty,and murmur gave me no problems,but laptop had me stumped.But then when I solved the panda monium solution,and saw I needed an o,p,and an a,I was able to come up w laptop as that word solution.In reading the other replies,I saw that I wasn’t the only one stumped by laptop.

        • Good evening, Chuck. No, you are not alone. Laptop was the stumper of the day. Enjoy your night. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป
