  1. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…♟🛳🙋🏻‍♀️

    🎶 I got to get to movin’, baby I ain’t lyin’…My heart is beatin’ rhythm and it’s right on time…So be my guest, you got nothin’ to lose….Won’t ya let me take you on a SEA CRUISE…🎶 “Sea Cruise” – Frankie Ford 1959 https://tinyurl.com/y57g8x39

    🛳 Today a cruise looks MURKY, cruising’s definitely on hold,
    The GOOEY situation with the Covid? No need told…
    But here on sun-splashed waters, things are normal, nothing’s wrong,
    These guys are having a great time…and we’re going along…
    They’ve probably hit the BAKERY, have eaten, now they’re primed,
    To indulge in activities, and leisurely spend their time…
    No worries ‘bout things DENTAL, no, there’s nothing can deter
    Just enjoy all there is to do…whatever they prefer…
    So who’s to swim, and who’s to stroll…all on their own accord…
    And then there’s this guy…Game set up…but nobody’s ON BOARD! 🛳

    Who knows when we’ll SEA this again, but for today we’ve put it all behind us and we’ve EMBARKed on a Cruise…But poor EDDY can’t find anyone to get ON BOARD and play a game of Chess with him…WADE’s headed for the pool, and FORD, the former MARINE, is just NAUT interested…he’d SCHOONER just stretch his (SEA) legs… So I guess Eddy’s SHIP out of luck…he can’t PAWN the game off on anybody…

    Eye candy? The guys are all DECKed out in colorful cruise wear, and Wade’s looking especially cool sporting his trendy purple shades, and having a great haircut…he’s definitely outshining his PIERS…And of course, what would any Jumble cartoon worth it’s WAKE in gold be without Jeff’s Signature Sinking Sailboat…WATER you kidding me?

    So, There you have it, Folks…Done. Have a good one…Be well, stay safe…And here’s to our future Cruises…when there won’t be any “Bridge Over Troubled Water”…. https://tinyurl.com/z7xkref 🛳🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🎂 The city was definitely ON BOARD with the new BAKERY, complete with its decadently GOOEY desserts, opening up besides the DENTAL practice, but things became a little MURKY when someone mentioned the irony of it all….🎂

    💦 The skies had turned quite MURKY, it definitely looked like rain,
    And all the DENTAL members had concerns about terrain…
    The ground would get all GOOEY, there’s no way they could stay,
    They should have heeded the reports of bad weather today…
    Their monthly get together, this time might be done for sure,
    They should have gone the usual route…the BAKERY indoors…
    ‘Cause there at least the elements need never be explored,
    They’d eat and drink to hearts content…with everyone ON BOARD! 💦

  3. Good morning. My choice for hardest word was Dental. Such an easy word and I gave up and looked for the answer. The only reason I come up with was that I was so sure the first word in the cartoon answer was To. With that stuck in my head I kept trying to make words starting with T. Once I got those two letters the cartoon answer came easy. Loved both songs Angela. Every time I hear Sea Cruise I think of the movie with Al Pacino. It kept you in suspense. Your second song fits perfectly with today’s times and the guy in the picture. Until tomorrow stay safe and well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Thank you…and I agree with you on both counts. Two great pieces of music. But, if I may, I think you got your WATERS crossed…I mean your wires crossed…😉 You’re thinking of 🎶Sea of Love🎶 from the Pacino movie of the same name. Definitely a great thriller. (But then again, what was he ever in that wasn’t great cinema). And yeah, unfortunately my second pick does kind of sadly sum up life today…But 🎶Sea of Love🎶? Always makes me smile, because my Uncles used to tell me that it was definitely one of the songs that always got them into trouble at school dances…😂😂 I still grab it out of the vault ever once in a while…it’s definitely “mood” music! (Ahem)!!!…Anyway, I’m glad you got ON BOARD with the solve, once you got past that “T”…Have a good one, Paul…Be well…and stay safe out there…🛳🙋🏻‍♀️


      • Good morning again. Oh boy did I have a senior moment. You are absolutely correct. Thanks for throwing the song in too. Take care.

        • Senior moment? Pshaw! You just got your WATERS crossed for a minute there…just like I said! 😉 No biggie, Brooklyn…that’s for SHORE. 😘🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. I agree w Paul on both counts,that dental was a stumper at first,and given the o’s from gooey,I also was looking for a t from dental to fill in the first 2 letter word as ‘to’ rather than ‘on’.But once dental was solved,and the presence of the b,led to a quick on ‘board solution’.
    Have a great day.

    • Good Morning, Professor. You guys definitely offer food for thought. Since I solve with the cartoon, the being ON BOARD the ship, and the presence of the BOARD game immediately SAILed it up for me. But listening to how you and Paul logically “work the letters” is impressive. I think you guys are having way more fun than me! 😉 Wishing you a great day too, Prof. Hope all is well…and stay safe out there…🛳🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. So…I’m figuring I may as well say it out loud, and get it over with. MLB starts today. Finally…What will it really be like? From what we’ve seen so far? Meh…Yea, Meh…IDK how I feel. The logistics, the limitations, the daily news of another player being getting hit with the virus (instead of a pitch), and being taken out of play…It’s all so different…But, it is what it is. Like everything else we’re learning to accept, right? But is it all that important to bring Baseball back? …in light of all that we’re dealing with? Again, IDK how I’m really feeling…As I said, I just figured I’d say it out loud…So…”Play Ball”!… There, I’ve said it…🤷🏻‍♀️⚾️

          • 👏🏻👏🏻 I swear this guy is in a class by himself…Irreverent doesn’t even come close…His timing…and rhyming are untouchable…🙋🏻‍♀️

              • Likewise. ROTFL…And we know which ones we enjoy the best! 😉😉🙋🏻‍♀️

              • ….And yet here I was trying sooo hard to be discreet! 😉 😱 Uh uh…I’m not going there..🤦🏻‍♀️ We don’t need to get me started…I have one to show you…Check your email….So, Dr Fauci, the little Cutie Patootie. I’m sitting here looking at his Bobblehead Doll as we speak…He said he’s nervous about tonight. And understandably so. But worst case scenario? And he like pulls a 50 Cent? At least there’s no one there to boo him, right? I’m rooting for him…⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️

      • No, I hadn’t seen the video yet, Steve.Thank you! And for the cartoon also.
        As for the puzzle, I needed the answer before I could get Dental.

  6. Hi all – I had trouble with the last two words and the answer. I know we’ve had BAKERY not too long ago because I remember talking about the Yreka Bakery with Betty, but I didn’t see it at first. There are a lot of words in these letters like LATE, BEAK, BARK etc, but all I could think of was “Achy Breaky Heart.”
    When I got that it gave me ON BOARD for the answer which let me back into DENTAL with the N and D.

    Thanks for all the puns and the details, Angela. I missed the sailboat at first, and I didn’t realize they were on a cruise ship. I thought they were just on a pier, and the guy was going to look at an actual bridge down the wharf, not the bridge of a ship.
    The Chronicle has reached an absurd new low in coloring the cartoons. The chessboard’s black squares are green, and both the white squares and white pieces under the board are colored red! (DUH!) 🙄

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The GOOEY frosted treats at the BAKERY caused him MURKY DENTAL problems.”

    • Hey Steve. Remember we used to speak about this? Can’t blame the Chron…they really have nothing to do with the coloring…the ink maybe, and the quality of the paper, but the coloring is done by someone who’s so far remained nameless! 😉 The coloring’s the same in my paper too, https://tinyurl.com/yxkp2eh2 with the shading making your “green“ to appear more dark grayish in my cartoon…Maybe the color guy’s never seen a Chess Board?..IDK…But you’d think that by hook or ROOK he’d at least have an idea, no? 😂 And thanks for the Shout Out…Have a good one, Steve…Be well and stay safe out there…🛳🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I always thought it was just the Chronicle because the online Seattle version was always correct. I didn’t know that your version had the same incorrect colors.

        • No, The Daily News and the Seattle version were and still are always perfectly in sync. Take a look at today’s ST…(it won’t let me copy it)..I think it’s just the Chron that pales in comparison…No pun intended! Don’t you remember saying that the Chron was probably just using cheap ink? 😂🙋🏻‍♀️

          • I see what you mean here, but there were many times the Chronicle had completely different colors – you’d be talking about a blond in purple and we would have a brunette in yellow or green. I haven’t checked this anytime recently until today.

            • Ah, yes…of course…The ubiquitous blond in purple. Who could forget? I’m always on the look out for her! 😉…She was as regular as…um..Ed Crankshaft? 😂😂🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Enjoy the challenge daily. Particularly impressed by Angela and learning a lot from her. DR ZiD from OH

    • Tk you. We here like the challenge too. Be well, and stay safe out there…🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Dental got me but the answer was a breeze . I actually thought TO was the first word . Baseball is my favourite sport and the Yankees my team . I watch 2 exhibition games and it was a dud! No fans, no noise . I don’t like this year plan… they should have started 2 weeks ago and play something like 120 games with a third of spectators . This year I’m not ON BOARD!

    • Christian…I’m sorry you’re not ON BOARD…😉But you’re not alone. We’re big baseball fans here too, and it’s hard to be happy with the whole thing. But again, it is what it is. At least they gave a valiant try at putting the health of the players before the money…and yet still, the virus crept in. IMO, it’s not going to be worth it if these guys get sick. Let’s just hope they all stay safe. Enjoy the game, Stanton gave us something to cheer about…Have a good night, Christian…Be well and stay safe out there…⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️
