  1. Good Morning, Everyone.. 🇺🇸 MR SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON? 🇺🇸

    🎶 LIE, Baby….LIE Baby….LIE, Baby….baby…Honey, welcome back home…🎶 “Cry, Baby” – (with an apology to) Garnet Mimms & The Enchanters 1963 https://tinyurl.com/mmeu5cm

    🇺🇸 A BEVEL is a sort of slope, it fits politics well,
    We hear a lot of promises…which mostly go to hell…
    The empty words are numerous, the MELODY might change,
    But mostly it’s the same old song…no matter how arranged
    Most candidates possess some POISE, but when it comes to depth
    It’s hard to find real honesty…we’re mostly left bereft…
    And ‘oft times we may cast a vote…then watch things start to SPIRAL,
    And we the people find ourselves completely over a barrel
    I guess it might be like skiing, compare it to a slalom…
    The dodging that we listen to? Well therein LIES THE PROBLEM! 🇺🇸

    It’s a great old common idiom, https://tinyurl.com/y3wayevl, which made it an immediate solve…(Unless you thought PROMISE was in there – then you definitely CAST your faith to the wind)! And the double play on LIES made it brilliant. Kudos, David. And Jeff’s hints, “Why should we ‘believe’” and…”Not going to fix”…definitely got my vote. A witty, timely puzzle solution…Have a good one, Folks. And you’ll notice I tried very hard to be non-partisan here…It’s not really a political POST…lest anyone take a FENCE!…Be well, Everyone…and stay safe out there…🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 💆🏻‍♀️ She doesn’t like the BEVEL design on the mirror, while he does, and she‘s trying to keep her POISE, and not have the disagreement SPIRAL out of control, but since he’s starting to hum the MELODY “My Way”…well, therein LIES THE PROBLEM….💆🏻‍♀️

    🤷🏻‍♀️ Not one child got the answer right, the teacher’s POISE was strained,
    How could no one know BEVEL meant the sloping in a grain?
    She sat marking the papers, a soft MELODY did play,
    But her mind began to SPIRAL…it was hard to keep at bay…
    The thought that it was her fault…was she the one failed them?
    A teacher always wonders…and there LIES THE PROBLEM…🤷🏻‍♀️

  3. Good morning. I was stuck on Spiral and went to the cartoon and immediately saw lies as the first word. After writing down the letters I saw the second word and knew I needed an R and L to complete jumble. Once I knew the letters it was simple to finish the brilliant picture. Haven’t heard that song in quite a while Angela. Had no idea who the singer was. Until tomorrow stay well.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. It’s a “good old oldie“! And I don’t think they really had any other hit besides that one…Have a good day, Paul. Be well, stay cool…and be safe out there…🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. With today being INTERNATIONAL FRIENDSHIP DAY, we send a special Shout Out 🙌🏻 to all our readers across the globe. Happy Jumbling! And may we all stay well and safe. 🌏🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Good Morning, Professor. Bevel’s not new to the Jumble…but it’s been a long time since we’ve see it…November and December 2014 to be exact! 😉 Be well, Prof, and stay safe…🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Also, bevel fits but another same lettered word is bleve – boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion. I was an environmental, safety, fire manager, so that came to mind first… Stay safe… Warmest wishes, I Love Jumble.

        • Hi David. In reality, BLEVE in and of itself isn’t a word. It’s the abbreviation for Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion, https://tinyurl.com/y59yaug9, and therefore ineligible to be used in a Jumble puzzle. And you’re in good company here…we’re all Jumble lovers. Thanks for your warm wishes, and stay well and safe out there…🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Hi Mig. It looks like Spiral stumped quite a few players today, so you’re in good company! Be well, Mig, and stay safe out there…🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Hi all – It took me several tries to get BEVEL; same with SPIRAL. The answer was easy. Seems like I’ve been stuck on SPIRAL before. I first saw SPRAIL, then PLIARS, but I knew that was spelled “Pliers” and they don’t usually use plurals – but is that plural? Here we go again – “The shoplifters were in cahoots to smuggle pliers and scissors out of the store in a pair of pants.”

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Angela, it’s been a month of nights and a year of days, with Octobers drifting into Mays, since I’ve thought about your beautiful hidden reference, by the man who composed the music for all the Peanuts specials:

    “The great POISE used by the luthier in adjusting the guitar’s BEVEL allowed the MELODY to SPIRAL up to the stratosphere.”

    • Steve…LOL! This is too funny…TBT, the reference wasn’t meant to be so thinly veiled! Early this morning, when it was still too early to call a dear friend for his Birthday, I texted him an image from Apple’s Birthday Animations…Two Peanuts characters, alone, dancing the happy dance…… https://tinyurl.com/yytqgkwk…(look at right, the farthest two, at front right..orange shirt and purple dress..I’m not sure who they are…Eudora, Loretta, Naomi? The boy…??)…‘Cause after all these years, my friend’s never lost his affinity for “Peanuts”…So that’s where the 🎶Cast Your Fate to the Wind🎶 came from…It was a Birthday Shout Out to him…since when we did get to speak as part of the Early Bird discussion, he said he saw Promise in the solutions letters…6°? …Full Circle? Serendipity? I’m not sure what…but it is too funny!😉🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. My wife beat me to the jumble today and was doing fine but spiraled out of control on the last word. I saw it at first glance so today was a joint effort!

    • …Any means to the end, right Rollin? 😉 So sweet that you work it together…Be well, both of you, and stay safe out there…🇺🇸🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Hi! Someone e-mailed me question about trying to figure out the name of a puzzle that used to run in newspapers. He describes it. So far no one has chimed in. I figured I’d mention it here in case someone wanted to help him. Here’s the link. It’s the top post.

    • I saw it on Facebook, and I’ve been trying to draw one to see if it jogs my memory! So far…no cigar! 🤷🏻‍♀️
