  1. Good morning. No problem with the words this morning but hit a brick wall on the cartoon answer so I used the word scramble to come up with all the five letter words. From there I picked out the two correct words to complete the jumble. I’ll be kind to myself and take half credit. I still had to weave out the words that didn’t apply. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Glad to hear from someone. I log on pretty much every day but don’t post often. So I was noticing very few posts. Seems like there would be more with everyone at home.

      • Good Morning, Burger. Thanks for your concern, and thanks for dropping by…Be well, and stay safe! 👑🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Glad you managed to WEAVE it out! Be well, stay safe. 👑🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. Good Morning, Everyone! 👑 ABDICATE…GATE! 👑

    🎶 It was love; love alone …Caused King Edward to leave his throne It was love, love, love, love, love alone …Caused King Edward to leave his throne…🎶 “It Was Love” – Harry Belafonte 1956. https://tinyurl.com/tbarzs3

    👑 💃🏻When Edward met his Wallis, it was kin to Waterloo,
    And the man who served as England’s King told them that he was through
    Whatever GUILT he might have felt, his love for her was stronger
    There was no TEASE when Edward said, “I shalt be King no longer”
    With Wallis a divorcée, to be VIABLE she lacked…
    She couldn’t serve as a Kings wife…but Ed’s mind was so one-tracked
    She brought him WARMTH, and put an end to Edwards playboy days
    The throne, the pomp and circumstance…they now stood in his way…
    He loved her and he married her, stayed with her till his grave…
    And in 1936 England…he caused a “TITLE WAIVE”…💃🏻👑

    So how clever is this? When Edward VIII https://tinyurl.com/nlal93a abdicated the throne, for “the woman I love”…he definitely threw the Royal Family and England for a loop. He gave up his TITLE, which meant he chose to WAIVE his right to be King, and he WAVED Goodbye. And the shock to England was likened to getting hit by a Tidal Wave…..https://tinyurl.com/rf69oev. A “TITLE WAIVE”!

    And the headline on The Mirror that the newsboy, is holding reads….”King Abdicates…Gives Up The Throne”. And I’ll be back with some Fashion News from today’s cartoon…as soon as I get a spot of tea…💃🏻👑🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Eye Candy….Played against the backdrop of Westminster Abbey, with period lampposts visible, we find our newsboy, called a newsie or a hawker, dressed in the typical 1930’s garb of the time… knee socks, knickers, and cap. But it’s our couple who is much more fashionable. He’s dressed in a navy blue suit, with a red bow tie, and wearing those two-toned shoes that were so on point then. They’re blue and white. And he’s carrying the ubiquitous umbrella, also used then as a walking stick. But it’s our woman’s attire that especially grabbed my attention. First, she’s not carrying a purse, which seems very odd. One would think that a woman of taste, out for a stroll back then, would definitely be carrying a purse. And with the year being 1936, and taking consideration her outfit, I envision a clutch of some sort…But it’s what’s atop her coat, draped over her neck, that really caught my eye. She’s wearing what looks to be a Kolinsky. It’s brown with white tips. I may have the name wrong, but back then, woman wore fur pieces that had animal heads and tails intact. I think they were quite the rage…and I tried locating some information on them. https://tinyurl.com/ss9ejm6 I have two that my Father bought for my Mother sometime in the ‘50’s I believe…and they’re fascinating…albeit a little spooky. One even has a clasp that’s opened and closed by the animals mouth…Boy, someone really took a bite out of fashion back then…Wishing Everyone a good day…Be well and stay safe. 👜🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. 🤷🏻‍♀️ He had no VIABLE excuse for the way he would TEASE her, and he felt no GUILT, but it was his total lack of WARMTH that hit her like a TIDAL WAVE…🤷🏻‍♀️

  5. No problemo w the anagrams or the cartoon answer,which is a surprise for me given the quotation marks around the solution.Let me comment on the stay at home orders,I live in a semi rural in central Illinois.There are no cases in my county,but in a neighboring county,25 miles west,a lady cme down from Chicago to visit family and came down w the virus and tested positive.What about the stay at home order did she not understand?

    • Hey Professor. I’m with you, the solve came to me immediately, and I have to say, I gave it an immediate Kudos…extremely clever. As for your closing question? I wish I knew what to tell you…Be well, Prof. Stay safe. 🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Hi all – Got the words with a quick pause at TEASE after seeing ESTATE. First thoughts for the answer were “Crown something”, “Ton of bricks” or “Lead Zeppelin.” Had to use the letters to get TITLE WAIVE – now that’s a GREAT pun, and a double one at that! I don’t remember seeing that before.

    Love the period clothes, especially on the newsboy.
    First “pashmina”, now “Kolinsky” Angela! My only source of obscure (to me) fashion information. I’ve seen those fox stoles, and yes, they’re creepy.
    I guess the guy’s carrying his bumbershoot for fashion also since there’s no rain in sight, or maybe he just expects it anytime in London, like fog in SF.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    A sentence dedicated to you Jumble Answers people:
    “It’s great to have friends you can TEASE a bit without GUILT or fear of offense because it’s obvious the WARMTH you’ve shared for so long is still VIABLE.”

    • Hey Steve…TBT, I always loved the Kolinskies..they seemed so exotic. And I’m glad I still have them…I wish I had all of the fashions women wore back in the 40’s and 50’s…there was such an air of romance about them. (Well maybe except for the little heads)! 😉 And I’ll make you laugh…I purposely refrained from using bumpershoot. Look it up…I think you may agree. Ok..I’m gonna wrap my pashmina around me and either close the back door, or get a cup of coffee…or both…it’s gotten really windy here…Be well, Steve…be safe…👑🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. No problem with the words but the cartoon answer threw me for a loop. Simply could not come up with anything – though it was a very very clever pun. I’ve been watching the CNN Series “The Windsors” which has been paused for the time being. Also have enjoyed Netflix’s “The Crown”. The Duke & Duchess of Sussex have been receiving much so much negative press lately. It will be interesting to see how they navigate their new lives. Stay Well Fellow Jumblers.

    • Hi Betty. You’re not alone. It seems like a good number of readers couldn’t REIGN in the answer…😉 As for Harry and Meghan? I hope they stay happy. They definitely don’t deserve all the negativity. Stay well, Betty. Be safe. 👑🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Hi Everyone –
    I didn’t think of Estate but I did think of Attest. After some time, I was able to find Waive and then Title. Good one! Have we seen two separate words surrounded by quotes before?
    Another vote against those fox stoles.

    • Hey Caroline. TBT, I’m not sure about the double quoted words. I’m pretty sure we have, but my thought process isn’t kicking in today…and I’m just not up to the research. I think the reason it may look odd is maybe because there’s usually a hyphen between a double quoted answer…and today there isn’t. Plus one of the words is usually a “punny” one, which isn’t the case here either today. Just a thought. And yes, definitely a masterful one today. David never ceases to amaze me. Hope all is well, Caroline. Stay safe. 👑🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. I could have stared at it all day, but that answer would never have come to me. Oh well.

    • Not to worry, Agnes. There’s always tomorrow! Thanks for commenting, and stay safe. 🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️
