  1. Good morning. No problem with the words or cartoon answer. Another blind solve. You might say it was easier than Sunday morning. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Like so many here, I came up with LIMPY and ROLLEN (to my surprise, not legitimate words) . However the answer was guessed in no time!

      • Hey Jensen…Yes, while the solve “was solved“ in NO TIME AT ALL…it seems these two words really ruffled some feathers today! Let’s hope we don’t have SECONDS! Be well, Jensen, and stay safe out there! 🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Limpy was my first thought as well,but then imply popped into my mind,as I wasn’t sure limply was a real word.

    • I also had Limpy but when the letters didn’t fit the answer I found Imply.
      Enroll was my toughest, requiring a back-in.

    • Hi Shar, Good Morning. There is a website, definitions.net, that lists the word LIMPY, https://tinyurl.com/y2p9blmm, but it’s really not a correctly accepted word. It’s more of a slang term. The correct usage would be LIMPLY. But David uses only the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, and the word LIMPY is not listed there. https://tinyurl.com/yybwy63q. Thank you for writing in, and I’m sure there’ll be plenty of other readers who saw the words as Limpy also. Be well, and stay safe out there….🙋🏻‍♀️

    • I did too, but didn’t fit the answer. I also had ENROLL as ROLLEN which fit the puzzle answer.

      • Hi Ronald. It looks like both words are opening cans of worms today! 😉 Not very often when there’s two words in the same puzzle that cause so much conversation! Thanks for commenting…Be well, Ronald and stay safe. 🙋🏻‍♀️

    • That screwed me up too, how many words can be correct? I questioned limpy in my mind but went with it!

      • Looks like it’s just one of those days, Rollin…Imply definitely cleaned our CLOCKS! 😂 Have a good one…Be well and stay safe! 🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Hi Gary. Good Morning. While ROLLEN does show up on a Google search, it seems to be more of a foreign word, which David wouldn’t use in his puzzles. And since he only uses the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as his word source, you can see from the link here that It wouldn’t be acceptable…Thanks for commenting…Be well, and stay safe out there. 🙋🏻‍♀️

    • This may be a landslide! 😉 Thank you for commenting. Be well, and stay safe. 🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Barbara…Sorry to hear that. Sometimes there’s a problem with a particular paper. Take a look at the cartoon and see what date’s printed. It may be a past puzzle. If you need any help, list the anagrams for me, and I’ll be glad to give you a hand. But here’s today’s puzzle… https://tinyurl.com/y398k4co. Be well, and stay safe. 🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. I guess I was in good company thinking limpy at first,but I didn’t have a problem confusing enroll w rollen.Have a great but warm day.

    • It looks that way, Professor! …And warm is putting it mildly…Right now it’s 92 here with a real feel of 103! 🔥🔥🔥 I’d gladly welcome “warm”! 😂 You have a great day too, Prof. And stay indoors! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. I too started out with limpy but like others didn’t think it was a proper word so figured out imply. Also paused at enroll but was able to figure it out. Cartoon answer fell into place nicely. Hope all of you have a good Monday.

  4. Hi all – I had to jumble a few times to see ENROLL even though I came as close as ROLLEN before I caught on. Guessed “No time flat” from the cartoon which was close enough.

    🎵”Rollen, Rollen, Rollen, though the streams are swollen
    Keep them dogies rollen, rawhide”🎵 Yeeeah!

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “Former ballplayer Scott Rolen still had to ENROLL in broadcasting school, since his talent as a BATTER didn’t IMPLY he’d be an ALPHA male in the radio booth in NO TIME AT ALL.”

      • That’s good, but FRANK-ly, I’ll take John Fogarty and Creedence Clearwater anytime.

        • Granted, great renditions both, 👏🏻👏🏻…I wouldn’t for a MOMENT take anything away from them… but it’s Tina who put her name on it. And if you’ve ever seen her perform it live? It’s something you’ll never forget… 💃🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Love that song, Steve. Can hear the crack of the whip. Frankie Laine had a great voice.

  5. 🍪 He never meant to IMPLY that he was an ALPHA male, but after they tasted his cookie BATTER, in NO TIME AT ALL they were all looking to ENROLL in his baking class…🍪

    🤷🏻‍♀️ This word has got us frazzled…a simple word IMPLY,
    The ALPHA thru Omega…but it’s just not a far cry…
    One BATTERs one’s head back and forth…but this we can extol,
    David sure knows the way to get to Jumblers who ENROLL!
    He’s caused a bit of uproar, for some there’s been a squall…
    But thankfully the answer was reached in NO TIME AT ALL! 🤷🏻‍♀️

  6. You know what’s odd, Folks? The last time we saw IMPLY, on August 16th of last year, it was anagrammed just as it is today: PIYML. https://tinyurl.com/y2m2ursy…And yet it didn’t cause half the hoopla that it seems to be doing today. Although It did garner a substantial number of votes, https://tinyurl.com/y3jfedtj, Limpy wasn’t the big topic of conversation…Maybe it’s the heat?…Got us all SECOND-guessing ourselves? 🔥🤷🏻‍♀️
