  1. Good Morning, Everyone…I wish you a day of smooth sailing,,,⛵️🙋🏻‍♀️

    ⛵️ A boat sale can get MESSY, unless each detail is stressed,
    One needs to be sure dotted “i”’s are all put to the test…
    A seller’s spiel should not BETRAY the honest line of reason…
    One doesn’t want to know EXILE while out in boating Season
    The tide gets rough, the winds will blow…and CACKLE loud and shrill
    But boaters shouldn’t worry something faulty ruins the thrill…
    So whether you choose sloop or ketch…you just want to relax
    Out on the sea without worry…no one needs a “SAILS” TAX! ⛵️

  2. 💰 Hoping his feelings wouldn’t BETRAY him, he couldn’t shake the sense of EXILE that overtook him every time he’d hear them CACKLE, and hoped things didn’t get MESSY when he had to confront them with how high the SALES TAX would be…💰

    💲He lived a life of EXILE, he chose to be alone,
    He figured that way no one could BETRAY him in his home
    His birds would CACKLE loudly…but they were company
    Despite them being MESSY…they were a comfort to he…
    He was alone, not lonely though…and sure somethings were lax,
    But he’d hide out in order to avoid paying SALES TAX ….💲

  3. Good morning. We all know what day it is today because we can see the camel walking away but it sure felt like a Monday. No problem with the words or cartoon answer. Until tomorrow stay well.

  4. I liked Clay’s comment,included “shipping”.I worked backwards from the cartoon,”sails” tax solution,to get betray solved,instead of battery.Stay well.

  5. With two clue words having a y, and as usual, the last letter of both being y, this was an easy solve.

    • Hi Leon. David’s let it be known, on more than one occasion, that he uses the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as his means of reference. Checking there, I found the word listed, but in plural only. (See the link below). He’s also mentioned that he doesn’t include any medical and/or “scientific” types of words, since that could open up another whole can of worms, especially considering that any word not “mainstream” would be one that the average Joe would never know of. I’m not looking to speak for him, I’m just giving you my take on it. So I’d say, IMO…Baryte isn’t a good fit as a Jumble entry… But maybe we’ll hear from David…Thanks for commenting, Leon. Stay safe out there…🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Cackle took me the longest to solve this morning and I too first saw battery rather than betray though the cartoon answer was a given. Wishing you all smooth sailing today.

  7. Hi all – BETRAY took awhile. I was going for something like BAKERY, but that only gave BATERY (close but no cigar). Then I tried BY together, but finally saw BERATE which led to the word. Didn’t get the answer from the cartoon, but the ‘X’ was a giveaway to it.

    Could we be at the Golden Gate Bridge again? Looks like it. Hey Betty, I think I can see your house from here! 😂
    Nice to see a Jumble sailboat that’s not sinking for a change.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “Little did the financier know that his SAILS TAX scheme would get MESSY for him when his partner decided to BETRAY him for money and CACKLE all the way to the bank while the boss was sent up the river into EXILE.”

    • Yes, indeed, Steve I’m waving at you from the shore. Maybe David & Jeff left their hearts ❤️ In San Francisco this week. It’s gorgeous weather here today, a good place to be.

      • Yes, it sure is. My nephew in Denver is getting snow and freezing temps, and Chicago and Minneapolis seem to be getting snow and ice also.

    • Same as Denver, apparently. My nephew’s phrase is “Any day can be any weather”, and my father always said in New England “You don’t like the weather? Wait a minute.”
