Jumble Answers for 10/06/2019













Good Morning, Everyone! 🎾 WHAT A RACQUET!! 🎾

🎶I’m like a RUBBER BALL, Baby that’s all that I am to you (BOUNCY, bouncy) (bouncy, bouncy)…Just a rubber ball..’ Cause you think you can be true to two (BOUNCY, bouncy) (bouncy, bouncy)…🎶 “Rubber Ball” – Bobby Vee. 1961

🎾 I’ve tried my hand at Racquetball, the game is pretty fast,
The ball is like a CANNON shot, you need be tough to last…
It’s just not ‘bout the stamina, your swing needs to be tight,
And I had trouble ‘specially with problems left from right…
New sneakers with a BLEACH like white I bought thinking they’d help,
But I still found I’d SQUAWK out loud…I definitely had a whelp…
Determined though to see it thru I tried hard not to fail,
Especially after I heard said..”Don’t play like a FEMALE”…
I studied others FORMAT, the speed and the control,
And knew I had to lean in more, my knees needed to roll.
I felt somewhat a GOALIE, with shots needed be stopped,
But nothing worked that really well…my game was still a flop…
But our girl here is savoring her win at Racquetball
Her victory a sweet one and she’s BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS...🎾

While none of our words today are new, five were last seen in 2018, the most recent being CANNON on 12/23, with BLEACH going back to 01/28/17. And one anagram, LAGIOE, is appearing exactly as it did on 10/17/18. And except for the slightest blink at GOALIE, the Early Birds easily swung through them all. So, now that we’ve gotten that all in, let’s put a spin on our cartoon…

Today we’re standing with two women on a Racquetball Court. Our question tells us that we’ve just seen a Tournament, and our dialogue tells us that the winner isn’t all the humble in her victory. Visibly excited, and exuberantly showing it, we see her, along with the ball...BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS! Way to go, David! You’ve served up another good one!

Eye candy? A bead of sweat can be seen on the cheeks of both our players. And our losing party has not only a look of disappointment and defeat, but also total exhaustion. But keep your eye on the ball, Folks, because that’s all there is…It’s seen bouncing…From the floor to the side wall to the back wall and back down to a double bounce on the floor…End of game…End of story. So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And I’ll leave you with a tiny bit of Racquetball humor…Did you hear about the Racquetball and the battery that got into a fight?… The battery was charged…but the Racquetball is still waiting to go to court. Drop the 🎤! 🎾🙋🏻

  1. Apart from figuring out the correct spelling of squawk,the anagrams and puzzle solution were a snap for a Sunday morning,As I said yesterday,we were home for the homecoming weekend,alas WIU lost in triple OT,but being home I had ready access to my newspaper and the Jumble puzzle.

    • Good Morning, Professor…I’m with you on Squawk. Even tho everyone to a man immediately guessed the word this morning, a few of them grappled with the order of the consonants. I sometimes pause with it myself. It definitely is a strange mixture of consonants, to say the least. And yes, today is another easy, breezy Jumble gift. Sorry your team didn’t finish in the money, but I’m sure you all had an enjoyable time. Have a great day, Prof! 🙋🏻

  2. Hi all – A rare Sunday where I got all the words. Hockey season just started, so I recognized GOALIE, which would have been my hardest word. (Here’s a tongue twister after three San Jose games – “Shell-Shocked Sharks”). Then saw BEACH before BLEACH. My first thought on the answer was that they need ORDER ON THE COURT. I really thought I wouldn’t get it, especially since I had written down a wrong letter (yes, on SQUAWK) but then saw WALLS and the answer.

    🎵”Had my hand on a dollar bill
    And the dollar bill flew away
    But the sun is shining down on me
    And it’s here to stay
    That’s why I’m telling you
    I just want to CELEBRATE another day of living, yeah
    I just want to CELEBRATE another day of LIFE” 🎵 1971, from the band Rare Earth, one of the first white acts on the Motown label

    Have a great Sunday, everyone!

    Keep those old jokes coming, Angela; I haven’t heard most of them and they make me laugh. I’ll pass on a sentence; have to run a quick errand.

    • Good Morning, G. Old joke? You know the DRILL, it’s only old if you’ve heard it before! 😂 I haven’t gotten to my Words of ”WITdom” yet, either. It’s Sunday…so I’m elbow deep! 😉 Have a great day! 🎾👩🏻‍🦱

    • “You won’t SQUAWK about the soccer roster FORMAT that requires a BLEACH blond FEMALE GOALIE when you find that your team’s has a CANNON for a leg!”

  3. Part One…These were a little tough today…🙋🏻

    Sitting in the den, trying to devise a FORMAT better suited to the new FEMALE GOALIE on the team, he was BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS from all the distractions…the parrots’ constant SQUAWK, the CANNON ball-bass sound from the music upstairs, besides the smell of BLEACH coming from outside…

  4. Good morning. Talk about bouncing off the walls. I thought I would never get the cartoon answer. After what seemed like an eternity, I finally got the hint regarding the ball, and was able to complete today’s jumble. The words were a little challenging, not all instant reads. Enjoyable to do, loved the answer as well as Angela’s post. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Hey Brooklyn…Sorry it gave you a RUN for your money..but I like your reference to the puzzle. 👏🏻👏🏻 Thanks for the Shout Out…and I hope you’re enjoying your day! 🙋🏻

  5. I really wish I could have PLAYED this better…Again, tough words…🤷🏻‍♀️

    Thinking she had enough time to BLEACH and style her hair,
    She put aside the book on “How a GOALIE Stops a Dare”…
    She gathered up her needed stuff, new color she was thinking…
    The box said CANNON Ball Brunette…but her heart started sinking…
    Perhaps she couldn’t FORMAT right, would it come out too dark?
    She knew that she’d just SQUAWK for days if it looked really stark…
    Not easy being FEMALE, she thought now not so enthralled…
    The nervousness crept in and she was BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS

  6. Hi Everyone –
    I was on the verge of giving up when I thought of off and that led me to the phrase. Though I had made a list of possible three letter words, off was not on it.

    • Hi Caroline.I think today’s solve was one of those answers where it was easy, if you got the phrase right out as one piece, instead of word by word. Does that make sense? I had dfficulty with the write up too, because it seemed to me that there wasn’t much to go on…it all hinged on that single bouncing ball…Oh well…on to tomorrow, right? And I thought of you earlier today…my friend went to the Farmers Market and brought me my first pomegranate of the Season. (The man knows the ways to my heart)! 😉 How I love tackling a pomegranate! Wishing you a great day, Caroline! Enjoy! 🍎🙋🏻

  7. I agree with you, Angela, about getting the phrase all at once. I did go to the farmers market today but didn’t see anything exciting like pomegranates. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them at ours, which is limited to locally grown produce. Enjoy!
