Jumble Answers for 10/22/2019













Happy Tuesday, everyone! There weren’t any new clue words this morning, but three of the anagrams were new. The only one that we’ve definitely seen before was POSYU, and it was scrambled the same way as when we last saw it on 6/25/19. Pulling double duty, it was also our most recent clue word while ENGAGE was the oldest. It took me the longest time to figure out and is my pick for today’s most difficult anagram. Since David did us a favor and coupled up similar letters, I knew the double letter trick wasn’t going to work. A quick rewrite of the letters was all that was needed to bring the answer into view, and just like that, I was ready to move on to the cartoon.

When first looking at the panel, I thought the setting was a showroom for windows. A quick read of the dialogue and sentence got me up to speed and we figure out that we’re in a factory that produces windows.

The conversation between the two characters in the foreground revolves around the subpar product that the new employees are putting out. The large window appears to have seven cracks in the different panes and management is less than thrilled with their results. The two employees in the background add a bit of comic relief to the panel. They can be seen looking at a window that has a couple more cracks in it which, unfortunately, brings the pane pain to nine!

The final solve was an anagram consisting of 12-letters. The -ING near the end of the layout made our job a whole lot easier as it allowed us to eliminate three letters right off the bat. PANES was rather visible after picking up on the visual clues in the cartoon, and all that was left was GROW to finish it off. Have a terrific Tuesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!

  1. Good morning. No problem again today. The words came almost all automatic and after writing down the letters and looking at them, the answer appeared. Until tomorrow stay well.

  2. Today’s clues presented a “window of opportunity ” to solve the puzzle. Bo problem today! Can’t wait for tomorrow.

  3. Good Morning, Mike and Everyone! Not wishing to be a PANE in the GLASS, 😉 but the window held by the worker at back has two cracks in it. If you look real closely, there’s another small one in the pane at the bottom right corner. And Jeff, ever TRANSPARENT, has added a great little SHARD of eye candy with the male character at front. You can see his shirt sleeve, wrist and fingers REFLECTED through the glass in the third panel up from the bottom. CLEARly a SHARP little detail! Have a great day, Everyone! 🙋🏻

  4. It’s a bit ironic here that the word “soupy” is one of the Jumble answers since today is the 10th anniversary of the late comedian’s (Soupy Sales) death.

    • Hi Chuck. What an odd bit of trivia. Did you just know that off the top of your head? You know what came to my mind? Last nights’ Jeopardy…They had a question about Andy Warhol and his Campbell Soup cans…😉🙋🏻

      • No. Angela. It was in a local newspaper which listed events from 10 years ago. I hope your day is proceeding nicely. Just saw on local weather that snow is possible for Halloween. Brr!

        • Hi Chuck. I’d enjoy a feature like that. My paper used to have something similar years ago, but it’s been gone for a long time. The SI paper has a feature where they pick a day from years ago, and show a replica of the paper from that day…news, store ads, etc. It’s very interesting…especially the prices of things…mind boggling! My days’s going well, thank you, and I hope yours is as well. But Snow? ….Oh no, say it ain’t SNOW! 😉 ❄️❄️🙋🏻

  5. Easy one today. Loved your “pane in the glass” statement, Angela. It’s particularly timely for me as I’m having to replace a leaky window in my family room. I just received a call yesterday that the new window has arrived and I’m hoping that it won’t be too much of a pain to install. Hope all of you have a good Tuesday.

    • Good Morning, Betty. LOL! Thanks…and I wish I had a nickle for every time I was called one too! 😉 Good luck with your window. New ones are on my bucket list…but I had to put them on the back burner because I found out I need my roof replaced, and I was advised to COVER that first…Ah, the joys of being a homeowner, huh? In fact he was supposed to start today, but we have rain, so I’m SLATEd for tomorrow….I’m sure your job will go fine…deep breaths! Have a good one! 🙋🏻

  6. Anagrams came quickly w 2 double letter words.Ing was obvious in the first solution,quickly followed by panes even with the quotes.Go Houston in the WSeries,as I’m an AL fan.

    🖊With the WRITER still experiencing GROWING PANES, he chose to remain cloistered upstate, but the SOUPY air there was an irritant to his AGENT who also hated traveling all that way just to ENGAGE him in conversation…🖊

    🍵 The stew turned out too SOUPY, and the food WRITER felt bad,
    The chef wasn’t a bad guy, but this stew…the worst he’s had…
    Perhaps he needs an AGENT to ENGAGE with all the press,
    ‘Cause now things aren’t going well…in fact they’re quite a mess…
    The restaurant’s still new, but business definitely will wane,
    Unless this chef can get a grip and get past GROWING PANES! 🍵

  8. Hi all – The only thing to cause a pause today was WRITER for some reason.

    Thanks for all the details Mike and Angela!
    Have a great day, everyone!

    “The WRITER had to ENGAGE an AGENT to get his story about the SOUPY San Francisco fog and the falcon published.”

    And go to the window
    And look out through the PANE
    But the statue in her garden
    He always looked the same
    He looked the same”🎵 (Joni Mitchell, “Blue Boy”)
