Good Morning, Everyone!    🎩 SAY IT ISN’T SO…SERIOUSLY…SAY IT ISN’T SO🎩 

🎶 TALKING is cheap, people follow like sheep…Even though there is no where to go. How could she tell he deceived her so well…Pity she’ll be the last one to know…SILENCE is golden, but my eyes still see…SILENCE is golden, golden, but my eyes still see…🎶 “Silence is Golden” – The Four Seasons 1961                 https://tinyurl.com/yczkfyk5

🎩 From what we see upon the wall, they only have this son,
And most likely the quiet treatment long ago begun.
Dad’s thinking it’s not MANLY, he says so and he’s brash…
He knows this isn’t steady work, there’ll definitely be no STASH.
Where Mom may be more CUDDLY, she’d rather hear him speak,
She’s picturing that box routine he’ll do week after week…
She wonders if it’s her fault, since PONCHO was her choice,
Maybe a name of cover-up made him cover his voice?
Whatever is the reason, it seems mum’s here to stay…
Say what you will, but it looks like it’s down to YOU DON’T SAY! 🎩

While all of our words today are Sweet Repeats, the anagrams are all new; and while there may be a bit of a challenge to them, for the most part, it’s not much to SPEAK of. Our two oldest words, MANLY and CUDDLY came out of the BOX at the end of 2017, while STASH, which looks like the easiest word of the day, is also the newest, having been seen as recently as October 13th. And just a week before that, on October 6th, we had PONCHO…Ok, that’s a WRAP!

Three times last year, we SPOKE about MIMES here in our Jumble pages: in February, March, and October. But from what I can see, this looks like it’s first APPEARANCE this year. So, let’s ACT IT OUT...Today, Jeff’s brought us into the home of Mr & Mrs WYATT IT-US. Seen sitting in easy chairs, reading, they’re approached by their son, PONCHO, dressed as a MIME. But, MIME oh MIME, it’s not a happy scene…From the dialogue we HEAR that this SILENT desire of their son has once again reared its’ bowler-hatted head. While Mom is asking him to SPEAK OUT, it seems that he’s NOT ALOUD to…You know, MIME rules and all that. And Dad is definitely not happy with the whole thing. He knows that becoming a successful MIME is practically UNHEARD OF! I guess he’s figuring all that money spent on a college education…and the BOX his son will end up thinking OUT OF isn’t even there? No, he can’t HANDle it.. And with him SAYING “Not the MIME thing AGAIN”? I’m guessing the third MIMES the charm…So, in answer to our question. What did they SAY? They said…YOU DON’T SAY! Good one, David! You definitely keep ’em coming…MIME after MIME...

OK, eye candy…Light purple shaded panel, matching green easy chairs. Picture on the wall, showing the IT-US Family, years ago. Mom, wearing powder blue slippers, sits reading a book. Poncho, dressed as we’re TOLD all MIMES are, in striped shirt, bowler hat, and a blue pair of PANTs. O MIME, but wait..shouldn’t they be black? His white face shows the requisite black teardrop, and he’s wearing white gloves. But he’s sporting a bit of a beard on his chin, which is usually UNHEARD of with MIMES. Dad, in black stocking feet, is reading a newspaper, opened to the BLACK and WHITE comic section …We can see the Family Circus and Ziggy, and above that a Jumble puzzle featuring a guitarist. There’s three others also, but I can’t put my FINGER on them. Maybe one of you out there can give me a HAND. But what really caught my eye this morning? The picture on the wall, showing Mom, Dad and Poncho holding balloons…If you look real closely, you’ll see that Mom and Dad had so much more hair back then…Sure, no STRESS! I bet those were the Best MIMES of their lives! So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! And maybe we should rethink that whole “Children should be seen and NOT HEARD” thing…Just SAYIN‘! 🎩🙋🏻

    • Good Morning, Professor. Totally agree, it was a breeze. Wishing you a good one. 🎩🙋🏻

  1. A PONCHO is a MANLY garment in some parts of the world and a handy place to STASH a weapon or a CUDDLY pet.
    No difficulty with the scrambled words or the solution. Perhaps tomorrow will be the challenging day.

    • Good Morning, Earl. From the weapon to the cuddly pet..you’ve covered it all! Easy, breezy puzzle, it was fun. Have a good one! 🎩🙋🏻

  2. Good morning. I guess everybody’s in agreement that today was perhaps the easiest of the whole week. Beware,the hammer might fall in the next two days. A little something to get the juices flowing I hope. No problem with either the words or cartoon answer. Angela,thanks again for the link to the song. Perfect choice. I think it was the first time I heard it. Nice job all around. Earl,terrific use of the words in a sentence. Made me think of Clint Eastwood with the thick metal plate under his poncho in one of his spaghetti westerns. Or Rambo running from the law and making his poncho from an old canvas he found in the woods to keep warm. Those guys were manly men. Lol. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Thanks for the Shout Outs, and I’m glad the link’s helping you out. I enjoy posting it for you! And once again, yep, easy, breezy. You make me laugh with the hammer reference, though…C’mon, never gonna happen! 😂 Just for you: The 2nd song that was fighting it’s way OUT OF THE BOX this morning. This one I know you’ll recognize. Have a great day, Bud….🎩🙋🏻

      • You bet Angela. Great song and it was used in the movie “The Graduate”. I’ll let you in on a little secret. It’s probably every man’s fantasy. That’s as far as I’ll go with that statement. Take care on this gloomy day.

  3. Maybe my mind was blown a little with election stuff, but I had to back into both CUDDLY and PONCHO.
    I see, Betty and Steve, that the San Francisco Mime Troupe is still around.
    So sorry to hear about more fires in California.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. No worries. We don’t all always see the same things. How boring would life be if we did? Wishing you a great day. 🎩🙋🏻

  4. Easy one today. For some reason mimes always give me the creeps. Thanks for your thoughts on the fires again, Caroline. We in the Bay Area are closer to the Butte fire. The air smells of smoke, the sky is red. There seems to be no end in sight and no rain in the forecast in the future. Hope you all have a good Friday.

  5. Hi all – Got CUDDLY from the double letter trick and LY at the end, and only got PONCHO from having seen it here before.

    Great song also, Angela. When people say how much they love the four seasons, this is the only sense in which I can agree with them. Just had enough of harsh winters after living through 24 of them.

    Well, I guess it’s never too late to see something you’ve never seen before. When the sun came up this morning, it was COMPLETELY bright red. Not a hint of orange or yellow at all. Of course realizing the cause we’d never want to see it again, but it was strikingly beautiful.

    See you all tomorrow.

    • LOL! ..👏🏻👏🏻 Thanks, Chuck…Good one! Very good one! I corrected it…😉🙋🏻

    • …Yes….Because we all know…A MINE is a terrible thing to waste…😉 Have a good one, Chuck! 🎩🙋🏻

        • 👏🏻 I don’t know you well enough to make that call, Chuck. Are you of SOUND MIME? For all I know, I could be walking into a MIME field here…I think it best if I MIME my own business! 😂🙋🏻
