  1. Good Morning. Everyone…I hope this finds you well…⚒🙋🏻‍♀️

    🎶 Don’t know much about HISTORY…Don’t know much biology…Don’t know much about a science book….Don’t know much about the French I took….But I do know that I love you…And I know that if you love me, too….What a wonderful world this would be…🎶 “What a Wonderful World” – Sam Cooke 1960 https://tinyurl.com/z228fz4

    ⚒ The subject of G. Borglum, lately getting quite ACUTE,
    Long a favorite of the Jumble…of that there’s no dispute…
    And lately while no HONEY-coat of figures far and wide,
    The talent that was Borglums definitely nothing to hide…
    Conversation not all JOVIAL..but this puzzle surely shows,
    That Lincoln was a favored theme as far as sculpture goes….
    No need to COERCE Borglum, with Lincoln no need to pitch
    Creations of our President helped surely CARVE A NICHE…⚒

    “Lincoln seemed to be his SPECIALITY”…There it is…CUT and dry….While we’ve visited Mt Rushmore many times in Jumble HISTORY, today it’s its controversial creator himself, Gutzon Borglum https://tinyurl.com/y8xvm9l5 who takes center stage. We see “The Bust” of Lincoln, https://tinyurl.com/y76o8hjf, in the US Capital Crypt, “Seated Lincoln”, https://tinyurl.com/yd9xl3lt , in Newark, NJ, and of course Mt. Rushmore. The favorite President of Borglum…he definitely was able to CARVE A NICHE https://tinyurl.com/ybws9h5q creating works of art honoring Lincoln. He even named his son, (James) Lincoln after him. And let’s FACE it Folks, that’s definitely leaving something ETCHED in STONE…Wishing you all a good day…Be well, and stay safe out there…⚒🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🍯 With an ACUTE determination to CARVE A NICHE for himself, he was willing to do whatever was necessary to COERCE his co-workers…he’d be JOVIAL and keep in mind the age-old adage that you catch more bees with HONEY than with vinegar…🍯

    🕺🏻The man was such a player, HONEY dripped from his sweet lips,
    It didn’t take much to COERCE women into his grip…
    Quite JOVIAL, this bon vivant was ACUTE with his wiles
    And many of the other men were envious of his style…
    He wined and dined a woman…leading to a fevered pitch…
    His reputation famous…he knew how to CARVE A NICHE…🕺🏻

  3. Morning, Angela and Everyone –
    Even knowing the answer and the letters – CRE – for the circles, I was unable to get Coerce.
    I didn’t know until recently that the sculptor was controversial or that the Sioux consider the Black Hills, the site of the monument, sacred land.

    • Hi Caroline. Good Morning. I’m going to take a look to see when our words were last used. There’s a chance Coerce may be new, but I’m not sure…And your comment? My song choice was prompted by the discussion the Early Birds and I got into this morning…seems there’s things few of us were aware of…Be well, Caroline and stay safe out there…And batten down the hatches…⚒🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Thanks, Angela. Not many words begin Coe. Also, I was pronouncing possible words in my head with a hard C, not a soft one.

        • You’re welcome, Caroline. Let’s keep an eye 👀 out for its next appearance! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Just about the easiest solve for me all week,even coerce.Then the presence of the c and v made ‘carve’ a snap quickly followed by carve a niche.Our travels have been limited since March,by the fear of the pandemic,but we’re off to our daughter’s today,and son’s tomorrow,to celebrate his twin girls 6th birthday party on Sunday.Have a safe and sound weekend.

    • Good Morning, Professor. It has been a good week, puzzle-wise. Enjoy yourself, and stay safe out there..⚒🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Good morning. Coerce took a little time for me to get but other than that all went well. After studying the cartoon letters and seeing the V it all became clear. Loved your song choice Angela and looking forward to visiting all those treasures you left. Until tomorrow take care and be careful out there.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Thank you…I always liked the song too…But just a heads up…the treasures aren’t all that interesting! 😂😂. Be well, Paul….and stay safe and dry! ⚒🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Hi all – I couldn’t get the third word, but the other letters, especially the ‘V’ showed “CARVE A”, and with that and trying CO at the front, I finally saw COERCE.

    Can’t go wrong with any Sam Cooke song Angela, and the thought of all that carving made me think of “Chain Gang.”

    Good wishes to everyone, especially for those in the path of today’s storm.

    “The beekeeper saw no ACUTE need to COERCE his hives to produce more HONEY, since his bees seemed to all be in a JOVIAL mood.”

    • Hey Steve…Good Morning. Thanks. It’s been raining here for hours already…I just dread when the winds start…the trees are so lush…it gets scary. And Sam Cooke? As mellow as they come. Be well, Bunky …and stay safe out there. ⚒🙋🏻‍♀️

      • You’re lucky! Here in Ottawa Canada, we hardly had a drop of water since early June . Most lawns are turning brown . They keep forecasting rain but the dark clouds seem to rush by leaving a few drops only !

        • Ah…the grass is always greener…No pun intended! But there’s rain…and then there’s rain…And we’re getting bombed..But we’d be glad to share with you if we could…Be well, Jensen and stay safe. 💦☔️🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. There’s a memorable scene in the 1985 film “Witness” where Harrison Ford is in the barn trying to fix his vehicle and Kelly McGillis walks in and eventually they dance to the record “What a Wonderful World This Would Be” which is being played on the radio of the vehicle. I thought you might be interested in this trivia, Angela!

    • Hey Chuck. Tk you…you know I love trivia. I haven’t thought about this movie in years. I think I’ll dig it up…You have an amazing memory…I’m lucky I remember where I live!😉 But you’re always coming up with a goodie. And supposedly Harrison Ford chose this particular song for the scene. Maybe it meant something to him…Enjoy the dance! Be well and stay safe, Chuck…And stay dry! 💃🏻🕺🏻🙋🏻‍♀️


      • Thanks for the clip, Angela! Evidently Ford has (had) a lot of leverage. I remember reading somewhere about the movie “The Fugitive” and where it was to be filmed and he demanded Chicago and Chicago it was.

        • You’re welcome, Chuck. I suppose he did carry some serious weight back then, he was good box office. Now, I don’t know. But I think he did squash the idea of Chris Pratt playing Indiana Jones, saying the role belongs to him, and it’ll remain as such. Hmm…And you’d think Pratt would have some pull there, right? I mean he is Ahhnold’s son-in-law now! 😂😂 IDK, Ford always came off just a little too cocky for me, I was never swept up in the craze. One thing I do know…someone needs to tell him to turn in those keys to the plane…that third time should have been the charm! 🤦🏻‍♀️

  8. Got all the words and cartoon answer without difficulty this morning. Mt. Rushmore seems to be a favorite theme for David & Jeff. When we visited the there several years ago they told us about the “secret room” in Lincoln’s head but of course we couldn’t see it so enjoyed the video this morning, Mike. Happy Friday to all. Stay well.

    • Good Morning, Betty. Yes, we’ve been there with the Jumble many a time. Hope you have a happy Friday too, Betty. Be well and stay safe. ⚒🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Same stone carver carved confederate figures on Stone Mountain in GA. Largest chunk of exposed granite in the world. Some people want these rebel figures removed from the face of the mountain today.

    • Hi Alan. Good Morning. As I was telling Paul, the key today was the money shot. Or vice versa! Knowing that three of those letters in quotes would be the play on words, looking for anything related to money, and taking FEE out of the JAM, definitely would have helped. With the remaining letters, and the woman saying, “This is a total mess”…Well…it DROVE it home…And even though you got STUCK today, you know our TAG line here…There’s always tomorrow”. And we hope to see you then! Be well, Alan…and stay safe out there…🚗🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Alan…I’m just noticing that your comment is on yesterday’s puzzle page…so now I’m not sure if you were referring to that puzzle or today’s. As you can see, my reply references todays puzzle. I hope I didn’t ruin it for you…Y’day’s puzzle…CARVE A NICHE? Don’t stress too much…You’re in good company…almost 450 readers couldn’t get it either. Again, sorry if I caused any confusion…🤭🙋🏻‍♀️
