LIOGO = IGLOO

BEFORE DECIDING ON WHICH NEW SCALE TO PURCHASE, SHE WANTED TO – – –
IGO NIH SOT PWE = WEIGH HER OPTIONS
Happy Wednesday, everyone! This one might have been a whole lot harder if HER wasn’t given to us. All of the extra letters were there if the guys wanted to add it into the final anagram (H from NINTH, and the ER from PEWTER) but I guess it wasn’t meant to be. It really did tip tip the scales in my favor so who am I to complain!
The new clue word count for this week increased by one with David adding SOFTEN into the lineup. That brings us to a solid four — and it’s only Wednesday! The remaining three might have been repeats, but all of their anagrams are coming up as new. They were all solved at first glance and didn’t slow me down in the least.
Today’s cartoon brings us to the sales floor of a home improvement store where we see a woman test-driving a scale. There were four different models to choose from, and if this woman is anything like my wife, the less options there are to choose from, the better! I mean, is she really going to use the app to help manage her weight loss? Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple and go with the model that looks nice but gets the job done.
Jeff added a few extra details in the background to let us know that this woman is indeed in the plumbing section of the store. On display are a couple of plungers, a toilet seat, and a toilet tank. The most interesting part of the panel for me were the smaller toilet parts that are hanging on the shelf. They appear to be shrink wrapped to cardboard and have a notch in the middle of each one for ease of display. At first I thought Jeff might have been trying to spell out something with the extra parts but I gave up on my crazy conspiracy after nothing came to mind after a minute or two.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 12-letters. The layout kept the answer well hidden but it was just too easy to solve based upon the visual clues of the scales and HER being given to us. I guess we’ll just have to weight and see what tomorrow brings! Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow.
Good Morning, Mike and Everyone. Another WEIGH too easy one…Have a great day! ⚖️🙋🏻♀️
🎶He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother🎶 – The Hollies 1969
⚖️ She saw scales made of PEWTER, and she saw ceramic ones,
She stepped on one feeling so cold…an IGLOO knowing no sun…
The NINTH day of her search approached, her resolve wouldn’t SOFTEN,
Her indecision something that her husband dealt with often.
“This makes no sense”, he silently thought…”its déjà vu adoption…
She drove me nuts choosing a dog…why must she WEIGH HER OPTIONS”…⚖️
…She tried to WEIGH HER OPTIONS, and SOFTEN the blow, when she had to tell him that his NINTH attempt at sculpting the PEWTER IGLOO was rejected…
Good morning! 🌞
Good Morning, Mike! ⚖️🙋🏻♀️
Good morning. I was able to solve both parts fairly quick. Another one in the win column. I didn’t need my brothers help for this one Angela. Until tomorrow stay well.
Not an ounce of trouble, huh Brooklyn? 😉 Have a good one, Paul! ⚖️🙋🏻♀️
MUCH TOO EASY
I concur, Cyril! 🙂
I am curious how you keep track of the all the words. Do you keep a database, compile a spreadsheet, rely on your memory or daily search all preceding Jumbles?
All of the above!!!
Pewter came quickly but not so for soften,as I had to back into it after solving the weigh her options puzzle.I’ll be at a loss without a real news paper as we’re heading to Naperville for granddaughter duty for a couple of days.
Hi Professor. Good Morning! How’re you doing? I keep thinking that you’re just 🎶looking for love in all the wrong places…🎶 😉 I know you prefer your paper, and rightfully so, but there are the online versions that we use for the details. Would you like me to print the link for you again? 🤷🏻♀️
Thanks for your concerns,I’m doing ok,and do have saved the Ark Dem link so I should be good to go.
YVW, Prof. I like that site also, it prints exactly as my paper does, (except it’s not in color). Safe driving, and enjoy your time with the Little Ones. 🙋🏻
Hi all – NINTH took an extra look; got the rest. My first ‘choice’ for an answer was “Weighed her choices” which actually fit, but the letters quickly showed OPTIONS.
If that’s the scale that shows up in “Garfield”, it will say “One at a time, please!” and he’ll lose a sale.
Mike, I have to send you this lyric from Joni Mitchell’s “Barangrill”:
🎵”No trouble in their faces, Not one anxious voice
None of the crazy you get from too much choice”🎵
I too am almost always relieved when my options are limited.
Nice song Angela, and I’ll go with John Lennon from the White Album:
🎵”It’s driving me mad
She’s so HEAVY!”🎵 😂
And a PEWTER IGLOO sounds like something that would show up in your Yankee Candle Christmas catalog.
Have a great day, everyone!
“It would take the NINTH level of a sauna to SOFTEN the Eskimo’s PEWTER enough to fashion into a fishhook, but installing one in his IGLOO proved quite counterproductive.”
Have a great day, everyone!
This is what I should have posted about yesterday’s ride in a NYC Yellow cab:
🎵”Marcie dresses warm its snowing
Takes a yellow cab uptown
Red is stop and green’s for going
Sees a show and rides back down
Down along the Hudson River
Past the shipyards in the cold
Still no letter’s been delivered
Still the winter days unfold
Like magazines, Fading in dusty grey attics and cellars
Make a dream; Dream back to summer and hear how
He tells her, ‘Wait for me’ ”🎵 (“Marcie”;Joni)
LOL! Yep, Yankee Candle Accessories! Now that you mention it, I just might have one in my collection! 😉 Have a good one, Steve! ❄️🙋🏻♀️
I didn’t “weight” too long to get the answer
