Jumble Answers for 09/17/2018









Good Monday morning, Jumble friends! It was a super easy puzzle today with all of our clue words being recycled favorites. The anagrams were all new but didn’t pose much of a challenge. VIOLIN was the only one to give me a moment of pause making it my choice for the most difficult anagram of the day. It was also the oldest clue word in the bunch having last been used on 10/25/16 and jumbled as IONLIV.

At first glance, the setting for today’s cartoon looked like a repeat. We see three men in the middle of a wide open expanse that appear to be taking pictures of a plane going by. The cartoon sentence informs us that it’s Chuck Yeager that they’ve come to see, but he’s going so fast that they can’t take a decent photo or recording of the flight.

Regular players of the game might recall that back in June we had another Yeager themed cartoon. It also featured three people staring up at the sky, but they appeared to be members of the air force. Since today’s game was a cinch, I figured that I’d include a link to my previous post where you can read all about this historic event in more detail.

Since the cartoon featured an event that occurred in 1947, Jeff was able to capture the feel of a period piece with the members of the press dressed in suits and hats of the era. The equipment that we see them using must have been high-tech at the time but it appears oversized and outdated which also added to the period effect. My favorite detail of the piece was the vapor cone that we see indicating the point where Yeagers’ aircraft broke the sound barrier.

The letter layout for the final solution was 6-letters in length. The “Z” was all I needed to see to figure out the solution. Although the surprise answer was an easy task, it suited the cartoon perfectly and made for a fun finish. Have a merry Monday, and I’ll see you tomorrow!

  1. The VIOLIN virtuoso OFTEN MADLY checked the ZIPPER on his case before embarking on a trans-Atlantic flight.
    I agree Mike today’s Jumble was not much of a challenge.
    Thanks for the archival background.
    Angela–I shall check in later to read your post. “Leaving on a Jet Plane”

    • Hi Earl. Good Morning..I didn’t do a post…Great sentence! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป And I like the song choice. If I decide to do a post, I’m going with…๐ŸŽถOut of This World๐ŸŽถ – Tony Bennett 1967 Talk to you later ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  2. Good morning. I kept checking for today’s jumble and was unable to find it so I tried the back door and low and behold here we are. Today’s words were easy but for Violin. I was stuck on it so I tried the cartoon answer. Having solved it I knew the two letters which finally gave me the last word. Until tomorrow take care.

  3. Another vote here for violin. I too had to back into it. All in all it was a good Monday puzzle. Have a good day everyone.

  4. Violin was no problem for me as was the final solution.I did try to make zipper into prize at first but the extra p quickly brought zipper into mind.

  5. ๐ŸŽถ You’re clear OUT OF THIS WORLD, When I’m looking at you…I hear OUT OF THIS WORLD…The music that no mortal ever knew… After waiting so long for the right time, after reaching so long for a star…All at once from long and lonely night time…And despite time, here you are…Clear OUT OF THIS WORLD….Clear out, clear OUT OF THIS WORLD…๐ŸŽถ “Out of This World” – Tony Bennett 1967

    โœˆ๏ธ On June 14th we first were here, out to the Golden State,
    Our destination hot and dry, Mojave Deserts’ wake…
    October ’47….Chuck Yeager, at his best…
    Today we’re back to watch the Fly Boy Ace this special test.
    Reporters at the ready, “Glamorous Glennis” taken wing,
    It’s not OFTEN assignments are exciting like this thing…
    They’re MADLY snapping pictures, but this no easy task,
    As delicate as VIOLIN strings…an image hard to grasp.
    Reporter one feels stuck, just like he’s dealing with a ZIPPER,
    His last assignment much more fun, filming the Yankee Clipper…
    Excitement wanes, Sound Barriers are proving hard to catch,
    It’s hot and dusty and these guys are all starting to kvetch…
    The thunderous roar ear-splitting, frowns are replacing the grins…
    They’ll try their best, but may end up a “Camera Shy” ZOOM IN! โœˆ๏ธ

    As far as I’m concerned, the DUST has finally SETTLED! The words were an easy FLY through…But today, Eye Candy to truly BREAK the BARRIER! It was Love at first FLIGHT, as soon as I noticed..and was able to ZOOM IN on those shoes! The ones I’m MADLY in love with! Finally! Reporter Number Two, the one not making any SOUND? He’s wearing the Two-Toned Brown and White Perforated Shoes that LIFT my spirits, and perfectly match his Brown suit. The other two reporters, clad in Navy Blue, pale in comparison…Although Reporter Number One? The Joe DiMaggio aficionado? He’s SPORTing Red socks!…That just so happen to match the Red Press Pass lodged in his hat band! Great detail, Jeff! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And I lift my JAGERMEISTER ๐Ÿทin toast to David, to Jeff, to the “Color Man” and especially to General Yeager…still Tweeting…and going strong at 95! Cent’ Anni, Sir! ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

  6. Hi all – No problem with the words today. Then none of my guesses for the answer made sense or puns, but when I saw the Z it was obvious.

    This puzzle was so quick I have no excuse not to get an early start on chores and shopping, so have a great day and see you tomorrow!

    I was waiting for your post Angela – glad you decided to MACH 1 up!

    • Hey G. Good one! Thank you! Just some TIME quirks keep happening…but it’s 1:57, and my eyes are opened to it all! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Have a good one, Bud!โœˆ๏ธ ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป
