  1. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…

    🎶 HEY HO, LET’S GO…Hey ho, well let’s go…Hey ho, let’s go…Hey ho, let’s go They’re formin’ in a straight line…They’re goin’ through a tight one…The kids are losin’ their minds…The Blitzkrieg Bop…🎶 “Blitzkrieg Bop” Ramones 1976 https://tinyurl.com/pk5n8f9

    With todays solution being as easy as 1-2-3, I’m just taking a moment to count the little gems in the cartoon for you. Depicting a very common scene today…schooling and working from home…resulting in the “why bother getting dressed-I’m attached to my sweats” syndrome affecting many young parents, we see a couple, with their infant son. There’s a toy stuffed elephant, a toy xylophone and two alphabet blocks. One, with the letters J And D, most likely stands for Jeff and David. The other, reading H, Y, F? Your guess is as good as mine. And it’s funny that as Jr’s counting 1-2-3, he’s holding up his fingers as children do….only as a cartoon figure…he only has the three! And while Mom’s teaching him his numbers, dressed in a familiar Wilco T-shirt, it’s Dad who takes center stage today. Off to his home office, unshaven, disheveled, and holding a steaming cup of coffee in his I ❤️Jumble mug, it’s his shirt that counts as todays pièce de résistance. In what may be its Jumble debut, the iconic, vintage Ramone’s Presidential Seal T-Shirt is featured. And while it may be well known to many of us music aficionados, here’s a little background for those of you who may not be familiar with it, https://tinyurl.com/ycnlbd2e and/or the Ramones. https://tinyurl.com/ul546wc I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen the band members names written in the order Jeff’s done here, with Joeys name leading off, but it’s still an unmistakable likeness to those who know. And of course it explains my song choice…the famous lyrics inscribed on the banner held in the eagles beak. It’s a great old T-Shirt, highlighting a great old rock band.

    May we all be well today, and stay safe…And pray for peace…1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🤦🏻‍♂️ After he had written the third, AND COUNTING, DRAFT of the etude he was working on for the PIANO recital, he still wasn’t happy with it’s NUANCE and sat down at the OBLONG bench to rework it once again..🤦🏻‍♂️

    🎹 They lifted the PIANO, and he watched his partners face,
    The subtle shade of NUANCE could be seen without a trace…
    The man was good with objects that were OBLONG… maybe square,
    But with this here piano…was it more than he could bear?
    He felt a DRAFT upon his neck…and sensed his shoulder dip,
    And hoped his partner held on tight.. not losing any grip…
    His stress level now rising as he felt the tension mounting…
    He’d hate to lose another guy…this one was six AND COUNTING! 🎹

  3. Hi Everyone –
    I thought this was harder than the usual Monday puzzle. Nuance took me a while, and I only got Piano easily because I remembered it.
    Thanks for all the insights, Angela. The jokes in the voting box made me smile.
    The name Ramones sounds familiar, but I don’t know anything about the group.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. You’re welcome. The jokes in the voting box are Mikes doing though, not mine. NUANCE hasn’t been seen for a while, it last appeared in 2018. The others are from last year, and PIANO, that you mentioned was anagrammed exactly as is on February 23rd. https://tinyurl.com/yc5yvnrt As for the Ramones, if you’d like to know about them, the 2 links I’ve included should cover the bases. Be well, Caroline…and stay safe 1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. I agree with Caroline that this was harder than the usual Monday puzzle.Nuance gave me reason to pause,and oblong,took me even longer to solve,as I wanted to put the 2 o’s together as a double letter ‘o’ word.Being a math guy,I enjoyed the math reference.We’ve survived almost 3 months of self isolation,now needless rioting and looting,which is not protesting.We’re all hoping the new June month,and upcoming summer months will be better for us all.

  5. Good morning. Enjoyed it especially today because it wasn’t our typical Monday jumble. My choice for hardest word is Nuance. To be honest, I looked it up after a long period of time. The cartoon answer was a pleasure to get because I presumed (not assumed)we all know why, that the first word was And and that the second word would end in ING. The leftover letters filled in the rest of that word. Even though I didn’t get it 100% I’m satisfied how I worked the rest of it out. Until tomorrow stay well.

  6. Hi all – After thinking “go paddle a CANNEU”, I wrote down the letters and then saw NUANCE. Got the answer from the dialog and letter layout.

    Thanks for the details, Angela. Looking at the black and white picture online, I mistook the xylophone for an iPhone for a minute and was worried about the stick next to it. Also for the Ramones info. I knew about them and a couple of songs, but not much more than that and nothing about the T-shirt. Had to laugh at the line in the link “Overall, they’ve sold more shirts than albums” and I guess I’d call them a punk band rather than rock.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    • Hi Steve. YW. And I had to chuckle at that line too. I guess it’s because the shirts are still selling pretty well today…Amazon, Walmart, etc….while I don’t think their music is. I have the album, but my Uncle that I’ve spoken about, the artist, who passed away leaving a treasure trove of stuff, had the original shirt. He left it to one of my cousins…who still wears it till today. It’s a cool shirt. As for their designation, as the bio reads, they were a punk rock band..6 of one, 1/2 dozen of the other…depends what you’re listening to…Be well, Steve, stay safe…1️⃣2️⃣3️⃣🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Another vote here for nuance. Cartoon answer fell into place without problem. I’m grateful that my children are grown and I haven’t had to “home school” them. My next door neighbor teaches first grade and she said this last few months have been the most difficult of her teaching career. Wishing all of you a good Monday.
