Jumble Answer for 05/29/2018







Good Morning, Everyone!           💃🏻 WEIGHING IN 💃🏻

🎶 When somebody loves you, it’s no good unless he loves you, all the WEIGH. Happy to be near you, when you need someone to cheer you, all the WEIGH….
Through the good or LEAN years…And for all the IN-BETWEEN years come what may…Who knows where the road will lead us, only a fool would say…But if you’ll let me love you…It’s for sure I’m gonna love you, all the way…ALL the WEIGH…🎶

💃🏻With HERBAL wraps and calories that she put to a count,
And exercising every day, and walking all about…
The ICING on the cake is shown, no pun is here intended…
Determined to lose all that weight, her goal is now so rendered.
But what’s with him, and looking at her like he’s quite impressed?
Gee, don’t you think his phrasing to her needs to be addressed?
Just something in his wording, he’s so NOISY…and I’m bothered
He seems just too excited here. He should say…”Looking HOTTER
The “great” don’t seem to cut it, Why? Wasn’t she great before?
I think he needs to check himself, and praise her even more.
I’m sure that she looked good before, just now it’s less to see,
And I hope she’s feeling good for her, and did it not for he.
I like to see her confidence, she’s happy and it shows…
She’ll feel a whole lot better too, when she gets all new clothes!
Let’s hope he’s thinking twice before expressing how he cares…
‘Cause sometimes saying the wrong thing don’t go INTO THIN AIR! 💃🏻

With NOISY leading the PACK as recently as 3/13, today’s words are returning favorites…POUND for POUND a nice mix of easy, breezy with perhaps a little HOTTER spice with HERBAL. Ok, our cartoon. Looking at the FRAME, my first thought, as you already know, is what’s up with this guys reaction? Oh, BUTT WEIGHT, maybe we should MEAT our characters first…Today, Jeff has us in a bedroom, where we see a couple, MOIRA and LES. MOIRA’S  trying on clothes, that are now all too BIG for her because she’s lost a lot of WEIGHT. LES is looking on, and commenting that she “looks great“. Ok, now, lets be honest here. On a SCALE from 1 to 10, doesn’t it seem a little OFF? You know like one of those left handed compliments? And I’m left handed, so I think I know from whence I speak! Maybe it’s just me, BUTT I feel he’s kind of speaking with a FORKed tongue. I DONUT know… Maybe I shouldn’t UNLOAD on him so HEAVILY? It’s just that I think he could have WEIGHED in a little differently. He’s definitely not in the RUNNING for a NOBELLY Prize in Tactfulness here. Anyway…With LES’S saying..”Where have you GONE“? and our question telling us…how happy MOIRA is with all the WEIGHT she’s LOST and loving seeing the POUNDS vanish..What does that give us? INTO THIN AIR! “THIN” air! Good one, David! WEIGH to go!

Ok, eye CANDY…or today, we’ ll call it dEYE-it candy…There’s a pile of clothing on the floor, and hanging out of the drawers. Quite FITTING for the theme here, but not what I was GOING for…We see more clothing hanging in the closet, but they’re no BIG deal. We can see MOIRA’s image in the mirror, but it’s a little THIN…So that leaves our couple themselves, MOIRA or LES…I’m going to ignore LES’s paunch, and DOUBLE CHIN, because the irony alone makes it a WAIST of time…Am I right?…AlDOUGH I do like the little DRAWstring on his SWEAT pants…Great deTAIL, Jeff. And there’s a Jewelry Box atop the bureau…BUTT, today, the solution? I’m going to CHEWs the team EMBLEM on MOIRA’s jersey. The HORSESHOE “U”. INDY COLTS. And Number 4? JIM HARBAUGH? Captain Comeback? A little MOIRA irony, Jeff? Come BACK? Gee, I hope not. Not after all that DIETING! So, There you have it, Folks! Done! Have a great day everyone…And keep this in mind…No one means to GAIN WEIGHT. It just happens by SNaccident!  💃🏻🙋🏻

  1. Good morning. Nice choice on the song with picking the chairman of the board. It’s now playing out in my head right now. You are the queen of the puns. Great job. The Nosy reporter was Hotter than a pistol because the chef would not give the recipe for the Herbal Icing on the decorated cake. Today’s jumble words were no problem except for herbal which took about five minutes to finally get. Looking at the cartoon the answer was a complete blind solve. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn! Did you stay up for that Mets game last night? That was a long day into night of baseball. And they’re slated to go again tonight…That’s a lot of pressure. Gotta feel for these guys…So, I’m glad you like my song choice this morning. One can never go wrong with Sinatra (BMH), right? The man FITS any occasion…I hope you’ll enjoy “listening” to it all day! And Thank You so much for the shout out! You’re such a Sweetheart! ❤️ So, this sentence of yours? You’re definitely starting to carry some serious WEIGHT around here, as we say in Brooklyn! Kudos, Bud! Very clever. And I agree, it was a pretty easy EXERCISE this morning…Hope you have a good one, Paul. CHOW! 💃🏻🙋🏻

  2. When Sally used HERBAL ICING on her husband’s birthday cake, he had a NOISY response which grew HOTTER as she ignored his protests
    Paul said almost exactly what I was going to say about your song Angela, so I shall let that go. Your poem and post were outstanding and deserve a second read, which I shall do later when I return from volunteering. I am covering a friend’s shift so she can have an extra long holiday.
    I’ll also tactfully ignore the husband’s paunch—but it does seem appropriate with his facial expression.

    • Good Beautiful Morning, Earl. I’m enjoying how both you and Paul went with a cake! My initial thought went towards icing on a windshield…Perhaps the theme of the puzzle put you both in mind of sweets? 😉 Whatever the RAISIN, it works very well! And I do like your take..or should I say TASTE on it! Thanks for the nod to Sinatra (BMH)..aGAIN, I feel one can never go wrong by choosing him. And Thank You so much for the shout out and Poem Nom. I wasn’t sure what angle to take with it this morning, but there was just too much irony in there…Gave me a BELLY laugh! 😉 So nice of you to help your friend out this way, Earl, you’re a true Gentleman. See you later. Hope you’re out early enough to enjoy the beautiful weather. 💃🏻🙋🏻

  3. Easy one today. Blind solve on the cartoon and clue words were no problem. How about those Warriors , Steve. Here we go again !!

    • Hi Betty. I was telling Angela, Headlines in the East Bay Times today:
      Front page: “Star Wars IV: Dubs, Cavs again”
      Sports Section: “Finals Four”
      Maybe I will have to sweep confetti out of my driveway again!
      Another couple of years and they’ll be *your* Warriors, after they move.😂

      • We’ll keep our fingers crossed about the confetti Steve. Maybe they shouldn’t mess with success and move. Leave it to San Francisco to steal Oakland’s thunder. At least you’ll get another parade if they do prevail. We

  4. Hey, everyone. I apologize for not being here the last few days and wanted to let you know the reason behind my absence. My dog has been having health issues for the past few weeks and last night we made the very difficult decision to say goodbye. Marty became a part of our family over 15 years ago and we took for granted his companionship while never giving any thought to the impermanence of life. I’m comforted by the many happy memories that we shared as I begin to sort through my grief and sorrow. With his pain and suffering over, may he forever rest in peace.

    • So sorry to hear that Mike. Many of us have been there multiple times, and it never gets any easier. He was lucky to have had such a loving and devoted protector and family to see him through all the stages. May all the wonderful memories be of some comfort.

    • So sorry to hear this, Mike. It’s wonderful that you were able to spend 15 years with Marty. I hope I can have that much time with Gizmo and Fifi. We all send you our best in this difficult time.

    • Dear Mike & Family, Jerry & I are sorry to hear your sad news today because, as Steve said, we have been there multiple times, and it is not easy to say goodbye. Just as you did, too, we loved our pets as members of the family. We are glad that you have wonderful, happy memories to comfort you.

      • Thank you, Lelia. I’ve never experienced having to make the decision to say goodbye and it hit me very hard. I’m starting to second guess my decision thinking that I could have done more and that I let him down in some way. My wife has gone through this before and tells me it’s normal to feel that way. Thank you so much for the kind words.

        • Dear Mike, my friend. From experience, it is completely normal to feel like that. You did the right and necessary thing. It is the ultimate act of service and love that we are privileged to be able to perform for our friends when they need us the most. And it’s never easy. Take care.

    • Mike, so sorry to hear the news. It is no small thing to lose a special friend.

    • Sorry for your loss, Mike. Pets become integral to the fabric of family and home. When they are gone it takes some time to adjust to their absence. Be well.

    • Very sorry to hear of your loss, Mike. Your home will seem empty without Marty to welcome you. He has provided companionship and love and now he’s at peace. Cherish the memories.

  5. Hi all – Had to write down the letters to see HERBAL; same for the answer until AIR showed up. Extra time because the three letter word wasn’t a common one like HER or THE.

    Yes, the guy can’t fit into his old clothes either, but for the opposite reason.
    I have the opposite experience of being happy that my wife has put on some weight, not because of appearances, but because it means she’s healthier and feeling better than she was for awhile.

    I’m off to do some errands on a beautiful sunny spring day. Catch you later.

  6. Hi, all! After reading “She loved losing weight” I was sure I’d hate this puzzle because last week my weight dropped to 101, which made me worry & cry because I am not a short girl. However, Angela’s choice of a song that I love “All the Way” cheered me back up.

    It was an instant solve of the cartoon for me today, but the words were a different matter. NOISY was a fast solve. I instantly solved ICING, my old nemesis from 25 years ago that took me hours to solve back then because I kept pronouncing it “ik ing.” But HERBAL was a killer. Just like “karate” from a day or so ago, I have HERBAL self-jumbled all over the borders of my newspaper. Even living in hot ol’ Arizona, the word HOTTER took me several tries.

    Until next Monday I might just post the word DONE because tomorrow morning early, I am taking Jerry for another Cystoscopy, after which we will rest and recuperate for a few days.

    In today’s Jumble cartoon, I wanted to have a talk with the husband about what to say & what not to say to his wife. Sometimes agreeing with us is the worst thing you can do as in agreeing that she now looks better. Her obvious reply to that could be,
    “So how did you think I looked before?!”

    • Hi Lelia. You mustn’t take this to heart…It’s just a game!😉 I just look for something to build off for a rhyme idea, and a few laughs, but it’s all tongue in cheek. Who wants to gain weight, who wants to lose…those are the real issues. This is all just fantasy and fun…But I’m glad you enjoyed the music! Good luck t’row..🙏🏻 Best to you and Jerry! Be well. 💃🏻🙋🏻

  7. Sorry to hear about your dog Mike. It’s rough when you lose your buddy last year on my birthday my son and daughterinlaw had to put their little one down. This was the only dog that my wife and I let sleep in our bed when we use to baby sit before they moved in with me after my wife died. I had a lot of animals growing up but this one was my favorite. Once again I feel your pain.

  8. would love to have answer  at 8 am my mother is 91 and we have to help her  thanks if possib
