Good Morning, Everyone!              🏺 “IT’S ALL GREEK TO ME”! 🏺

Good Sunday Morning, Jumble Fans. Here are our words and solution for today. I’m going back to sleep for a few hours, but for all of you Early Birds out there, who are wide awake and will REMAIN so, I didn’t want to leave you hanging, so…Enjoy! And for those of you interested in reading more of what’s TO BE SEEN…Click on the link in your Email that says, “Comment” or “Add a Comment“, and you’ll be brought to our page, where you can take a TOUR of our SITE. Of course leaving a Comment is not required, but we’d definitely enjoy hearing from you should you choose to do so….Until I return, ” Ta léme argótera”! 🏺🙋🏻

🏺 The beauty that is Ancient Greece is widely known to man,
And tourists have been visiting way back since time began.
A BUSILY sketched out schedule is sure to be topped off,
By touring the Acropolis, of this no one would scoff.
The ruins that are the Parthenon, where ENZYMEs may have settled,
A lot to DREDGE up on your tour as long as you’ve the mettle.
There’s climbing that’s required, POTTED areas, no terrain…
The superstitious ones can bring a MASCOT if it rains…
The steps sometimes get slippery, so caution is required,
Of course there’s places on the way to stop should one get tired.
Greek history abounds here, INDICT may come to mind…
(And even if it doesn’t…I had to make this rhyme)!
The visit’s not a cakewalk, but from all that you will glean..
It must be on your schedule, yes…IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN 🏺

I was very surprised this morning to find that INDICT and POTTED weren’t listed in the ARCHIVES that we work with. I feel we’ve SEEN both words before, but perhaps I’ve SEEN them while jumbling on David and Jeff’s JUST JUMBLE game. (And for those of you who may not have TOURED that APP yet, I highly recommend it). Of our REMAINing 4 words, ENZYME GOES BACK the farthest, to January 29th, 2016. And the only word that caused a pause this morning was POTTED. 8 of my 11 fìloi ( friends?) SAW Topped, and couldn’t CLIMB past it..TBT, look back UP at my poem…3rd line. I was thinking it too, even after I knew it was POTTED! I had to rewrite line 7! How about you all? What word almost RUINed your morning?

Still going with our outdoor themes, today we find ourselves in Europe, above the city of ATHENS, GREECE, visiting the ACROPOLIS. Here’s a link to some information about it, should you be interested. https://tinyurl.com/yagsb77x. We see a couple, stopping along the way to take photos of The Parthenon. They’re overheard discussing how amazing it is to be looking at RUINS that are 2,000 years old. And the solution to our puzzle came to me right here in our dialogue. Him mentioning the 2,000 years, the “Remains” and her saying…”Show” our family..To be seen. IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN! Oh TROY, oh TROY, how clever is that? Once again, David, you’ve REACHED all new HEIGHTS! Way to RHO!

Ok, eye candy. Except for the “ROCKS and ROLLS”, Jeff’s really not given us much to SEE. Various brown pieces of stone and columns are strewn about…”THE REMAINS OF THE CLAY”..😉 The brown Parthenon stands in the background…SEE? Not much. Sorry, I hate to RUIN this for you…But there are two little things that caught my attention…The woman’s phone is capturing the image of the ANCIENT RUIN. I always love when Jeff gives us those dePICtions…and the man is wearing a Fanny Pack, which may not be as ANCIENT as you think. I’ve seen them displayed again in Macy’s and they were mentioned as an idea for a Christmas gift on one of those numerous morning talk show deals…But the funniest part? They were offered for sale with extension straps. I suppose for those of us who remember them from the early 90’s was it? What? We’ve REACHED all new WIDTHS? 😂 So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone..And I’ll leave you with a little GREEK “punny” that might be found relevant even AFTER ALL THESE YEARS...”ANCIENT GREEK  politicians always blamed the MEDEA”! 🏺🙋🏻
