Jumble Answers for 07/27/2018







Good Morning, Everyone!           🏹 HERE SHE BOWS…AGAIN 🏹

🎶 Cupid draw back your BOW, and let your ARROW go…Straight to my lover’s heart for me…Nobody but me. Cupid please hear my cry, and let your ARROW fly…Straight to my lover’s heart for me….🎶 “Cupid” – Sam Cooke  1961

🏹 I shot an arrow into the air, we might hear that today…
We’re looking at some archers go about a round of play.
The PUBLIC was invited, both the ELDER and the young…
To cheer these ladies on, and so their praises we hear sung.
No SHAME would come upon them, should an arrow go astray
‘Tho the object here is Bull’s-Eye hitting, center all the way…
The only thing to stop them? I’d say if they lost light,
A power OUTAGE would result in darkness, hence a plight…
But let’s watch as they step up to shoot, relaxed and quite at ease,
And pull back on that bow…as they had surely AIMED TO PLEASE!🏹

So, Dear Readers…We’ve managed to make it through another work week of Jumble Tumble! And today’s words?…All Sweet Repeats, although I do think OUTAGE may set a few of us aQUIVER!…Even though we’ve seen it as recently as May 7th…And for SHAME? June 13th! Only six weeks aBOW, I mean ago…Anyway, let’s take a SHOT at today’s solution…Our cartoon today brings us to an OPEN AIR ARCHERY RANGE. We see three female team members, competing in a CHAMPIONSHIP. We see that Jeff has DRAWN three TARGETS, and each one contains three ARROWS. I’m wondering  if there’s any music playing in the BACKGROUND…🎶BOWhemian Rhapsody🎶 perhaps, or maybe 🎶Underneath the ARCHERS🎶?…Just a thought. We don’t see any of the rival teams’ players, so there isn’t an ARCH-enemy IN SIGHT. And the woman all appear to be young, and physically fit, very FLETCHING. YEW know the kind…They probably all do ARROWbics, and there’s no signs of any BOWtox. Not that I’m looking to SLING any mud, or NOCK anyone here. Trust me, I’m not looking to start any QUARREL. Anyway, the first TARGET is showing as the WINNER, with the BULL’S-EYE SHOT visible. And our woman in the middle is proving to be the better SHOT than BOWth of the other two. BUTT you’ll notice that there’s nothing ARROWgant aBOUT her. Nope, she’s not VANE at all. In fact, she’s modestly making a POINT of saying that it was the WIND that brought her ARROW thAIR. She’s a very PLEASEant girl! So with our question asking how the BULL’S-EYE scorer could be defined? …She AIMED TO PLEASE! Good one, David! Right on TARGET!

Ok, eye candy…We see a RIGHTY, and a LEFTY…I GLOVE that a Lefty’s in there…And you gotta HAND it to these woman, they’re versatile…But since nothing’s FLETCHING my eye today? I’ll just mention that one of the women is dressed in Green! Now that deserves a CROWN! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And I think I’ll just DRAW BACK now and BOW out…🏹🙋🏻

  1. What a SHAME that the power OUTAGE caused the ELDER home to cancel a musical for the PUBLIC.
    No difficulty with the clue words. But all those letters–13 –with 7 vowels, caused some difficulty with the solution. I tried writing out the consonants, the vowels, glaring at the cartoon and using “ed” and finally came up with AIMED and the rest fell into place. One of the most difficult puzzles this week, I believe.
    Sam Cooke? Yes, Angela an old favourite and thanks for targetting him today.
    Great poem and so many puns with archery, target, etc. You are certainly back in the grove—well done.
    I went back to yesterday’s post and noticed the similarity in our posts. Hummm, have we been doing this too long??? Beginning to think alike?
    Have a Fabulous Friday all.

    • Good Morning, Earl LOL..Yes, I did notice our similarities y’day, and I posted to you regarding it. I think the words didn’t leave us much wiggle room…and “wiggle” seems an apropos word, doesn’t it? 😂😂 Nothing wrong with thinking along the same lines…Although I would pity you should you begin thinking like me! Poor Baby! Save yourself! 😂😂 ..Wonderful sentence today, 👏🏻 Kudos! Thank you for the Shout Out, and the Poem Nom. TBT, I know next to nothing about ARCHERY. I just scanned an article or two this morning, and FLEW with it. I’ve hunted a time or two with BOW and ARROW, and I have to say, it’s much more difficult than with a rifle. So all I can offer is that I’m assuming ARCHERY is not for the faint of heart. Power to these women! And Kudos to Jeff and David for CHAMPIONING women today, instead of the proverbial men! Your description of the puzzles’ solution seems to be the opposite of what my friends voiced this morning. They claimed the answer came easily, but they were off TARGET with the words. Different strokes for different folks…it’s interesting to see. ..And as for “targeting” Sam Cooke? Funny turn of phrase…He came to such an untimely death, being shot and killed at only 33. His story is an interesting one too…Have a great day, Earl..I think NY may finally get a reprieve from the rain and choking humidity today. Here’s to a BOWtiful day! 🏹🙋🏻


  2. Good morning. You sound like you’re feeling better Angela. Hope it’s a fact. Did love Sam Cooke. Great song choice. If the cleaver poem and puns are a way of saying you feel better than you’re back. Thanks Earl for never disappointing us. Had no trouble with the words. I believe they were old favorites because the light bulb when off rather quick each time I tackled one. Now I had a heck of a time getting the cartoon answer. All them letters had me scrambling possible words. I found it to be a cleaver answer with Aimed to Please. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Yes, thank you, I am feeling better. Are you? Hoping it’s a fact also…Thanks for the Shout Outs, I’m glad you enjoyed it all…Sam Cooke included..
      Paul, the words are all old favorites. If you go back to my write up, you’ll see I’ve stated so..I’ve started calling them the Sweet Repeats…And you’re saying, just as Earl did, that the answer eluded you..Just the opposite of what my friends were saying this morning. They were good on the answer, but had a tic here and there with the words…Anyway, I’m glad you stuck with it..And yes, very clever puzzle for sure! Have a good one, Brooklyn..Beware the Pollen! 🏹🙋🏻


  3. I remembered OUTAGE from before but PUBLIC required a lot of jumbling again. My first thought for the answer was “simple.” When that failed, I saw aimed and the rest followed pretty quickly.

    • Hi Caroline. Good Morning. I heard about BOWth OUTAGE and PUBLIC from my early morning Jumblers. And you’re right…Once you ZEROED in on AIMED, the rest was a given! Hope you’re having a great day! Be well! 🏹🙋🏻


  4. No problem with the clue words this morning but the cartoon answer was another story for me. I got thrown by all those vowels. Jumbled and rejumbled the letters and finally saw please and the rest fell into place. It was a good brain exercise. Have a good Friday everyone.


    • Good Morning, Betty. Earl mentioned the number of vowels too…And how interesting that you saw PLEASE, while Caroline saw AIMED. The different DIRECTIONS our minds take us, right? And I’m sure you enjoyed the challenge! Always worth it, don’t you think? Wishing you a good Friday too, Betty! Be well. 🏹🙋🏻


      • Yes, indeed. I like it when I have to work at it. Haven’t had any of those pesky quotation marks lately which I just love. Hope you’re feeling better, Angela.

      • I welcome the challenge also, Betty.. I sometimes think the ones from the APP are a bit of a challenge, don’t you? I find them fun…And you’re right, it’s been a few days since we’ve seen those pesky little marks! LOL… I love them too! 😂 …Thanks very much for asking, I am feeling better today. I slept so much y’day,..my friend said he put a mirror under my nose every once in a while…just to check! 😂😂 He’s a regular Prince! ROTFL!! I’m always thinking of you all out in California.❤️ The news footage of the fires is nothing short of heartbreaking. I pray you all stay well…🙏🏻🙋🏻


  5. Hi all – Hey Cupid,
    🎵”Hit me with your best shot,
    C’mon and hit me with your best shot.
    Hit me with your best shot; fire away!”🎵
    Only the third word took a minute but whenever “I see” IC, I always try it at the end, so PUBLIC appeared. For the answer, I thought the first word must end in ED, the second is probably IT, or AT, but I couldn’t see the solution. Saw SIMPLE or SAMPLE, but that didn’t help, and other words like TARGET, ARROW, BOW or FLIGHT weren’t possible.
    The ELDER Jumbler (that would be me), will admit to the PUBLIC SHAME of a brain OUTAGE! 😂
    I give up; now where could I get help with this? Oh right! JUMBLE ANSWERS! It really does come in handy for its original intended purpose once in awhile!

    Great poem and puns, Angela; I’m glad you’re feeling better.

    If you’re reading this Mike – After the 4 game sweep on the road, the A’s are heading for the thin air of Colorado tonight. Now maybe we’ll see some *real* offense! 😂

    If there are any Wilco fans out there (😉) it appears that they will be playing at SF’s annual “Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival” on October 5-7 in Golden Gate Park, when the weather is often the best of the year.

    Have a great Friday and weekend, everyone!

  6. Hi, all! What a pleasant Jumble puzzle about an archery contest. My solve consisted of 3 instant words, OUTAGE needing only a second look, and the cartoon answer popping out as soon as I finished writing the circled letters in a row.

    SHAME on the careless ELDER driver who downed a power pole, causing a PUBLIC power OUTAGE on a very hot day in Arizona.

    • A power outage anywhere would prove uncomfortable, but with the temps you guys have been having? Unbearable! Have a good one, Lelia, and stay cool! 🏹🙋🏻


  7. Archery first appeared in the Olympic Games in 1900, was contested again in 1904, 1908 and 1920, then again, after an absence of 52 years, from 1972 to the present. The most decorated archer in Olympic history is Hubert Van Innis of Belgium who competed in 1900 and 1920, winning six gold and three silver medals.


    • Hey Clay…If you say so! You’ll get no QUARREL from me! 😉 Nice to see you. Take care. 🏹🙋🏻
