  1. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope you’re all well…
    🎶 Yesterday when I was young…The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue…🎶 “Yesterday When I Was Young” – Dusty Springfield 1964 https://tinyurl.com/ybh2nspj

    Jeanne Calment…https://tinyurl.com/ormbaxx…..A life extraordinaire…

    👵🏻 So is age just a number as we often hear it said?
    It may be true in Jeanne’s case…and with the life she led
    While youthfulness she did EXUDE, she wasn’t much the JOGGER,
    But hunting was a passion so a HIKER we could augur…
    While BURLAP came from Germany, ‘twas France were Jeanne was born
    And lived a life of privilege filled with many many morns
    A rare occurrence surely, but all myth she did assuage…
    122 years? Redefining HER OLD AGE…👵🏻

    To life…Be well, stay safe. 👵🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

    • All the anagrams,even exude,seemed so familiar,that I actually thought the paper had repeated a Jumble we have had before.Am I wrong in my recollection?

      • Professor, I think it’s just that we’re all suffering Groundhog Day Syndrome. Everything’s beginning to blur…All 4 words were last seen in 2019, but I’d say chalk one up for your memory! 👏🏻 Hope your morning’s going well. Stay safe, Prof. 🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Prof, I failed to mention that the anagrams are new, except for KIRHE. But that was used way back in the puzzle of August 10th, 2016. 🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🏃🏻‍♀️Dressed in her best BURLAP outfit, which she hoped would EXUDE her confidence, she set out to prove her worth as a HIKER and a JOGGER…despite HER OLD AGE…🏃🏻‍♀️

    🧗🏻‍♀️ He watched from off the sidelines as the woman set her mark,
    A HIKER and a JOGGER she came proudly to the park…
    He wished he had her confidence, EXUDE it just as she,
    Instead he was a man who from these things would usually flee
    He touched the brim of his hat, made of BURLAP, colored sage,
    And nodded to her stamina, respecting HER OLD AGE…🧗🏻‍♀️

  3. HER OLD AGE is the obvious answer but there are other possible solutions. Maybe she had somewhat of the masculine in her, perhaps it was HER LAD EGO. Or maybe it was the strong beer that she drank over her lifetime that helped her reach 122; it was HER GOD – ALE. Or maybe it was her pets; maybe a dog named Ale: HER DOG ALE. Or maybe she listened to people and things; maybe her HOG EAR LED.

    • No problems today. Jim B., I always get a kick out of your posts. Is 122 Ale’s age in dog years?

      • Hey Caroline, if you want to go “Surf ‘n Turf”, there’s a Dogfish Head Brewery in Delaware. And one of my favorite brands, Lagunitas (brewed in Lagunitas, Marin County, CA and Chicago (Hi David!😂) ), has a dog as its mascot (scroll to the bottom of this link. They sell guitar picks with his picture made to look like the RCA “His Master’s Voice” logo, but with him wearing a plastic vet’s cone sitting in front of a Fender Amp:


      • Steve, I found the guitar picks – very cool. I had forgotten about that RCA logo.
        I don’t know Lagunitas but will have to try some.

  4. Good morning. No problem with the words or cartoon answer. ‘Twas more like a Monday jumble. Enjoyed your post Angela. Loved your song choice. If you’re not busy please check out Roy Clark’s version of the song. Besides being one of my favorite guitar or banjo pickers, he does that song real justice. Thanks for the second link. I’ll check it out after this. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Paul. I favor Roy Clark’s version also. It’s a haunting rendition, and Roy was a favorite of my Father too. I only went with Dusty in keeping with the puzzle, featuring a woman. This one’s for you…Enjoy. And thanks for the Shout Out. Be well, Brooklyn. Stay safe. 🪕🙋🏻‍♀️


  5. Another easy one today which was good since my thinking is a bit fuzzy these days. Imagine living to be 122 years old. Good Grief Charlie Brown!! Hope all of you stay well.

  6. Hi all – l had to pause at BURLAP after trying words with BAL or BUL, but then remembered having seen it. Had to write the letters to see the answer.

    Hey Paul! Congrats on your name making into the Jumble words section!

    Angela, I also liked your song for its “French Connection” of having been written and sung by Charles Aznavour.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “Both the HIKER and the JOGGER tried to go green with the new BURLAP and bamboo-fiber running clothes, but didn’t realize they would EXUDE a strange odor after the workout.”
