  2. Hi Everyone – Only issue today was wondering if I had Ditty spelled correctly and if it was in fact a word. The Jumble reminded me of a Ziggy cartoon. Ziggy was sitting in the doctor’s waiting room when the nurse came out and handed him a copy of the book “War and Peace.”

  4. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you WELL…🩺🙋🏻‍♀️

    If you closely EXAMINE the Cartoon, you’ll see this….
    There’s a sign next to the window which reads “Please wear a mask”.
    The patient is working puzzles from a Jumble book, and the first word at top is GLAEE, an anagram of EAGLE, which has appeared as such in past puzzles. The cartoon on the cover of the book is of Jeff, left and David, right. They’re outdoors, since a cloud is shown in the sky, and it looks as if Jeff is holding his right hand out offering something to David, who in turn is reaching towards it with his right hand. And both of them seem to be speaking, but the lines above their heads aren’t distinct enough to be read.

  5. 👩🏻‍⚕️ Maybe they should have thought to BATTEN down the bench, because when both A and B…(PATIENT, PATIENT), attending the Nursing Home’s picnic, began to FAINT from the pungent aroma of the freshly-ground PEPPER, the nervous CNA froze, stared, and began humming a mindless DITTY as they both fell to the floor… 👩🏻‍⚕️

    🤦🏻‍♀️ The class was studying History, WWII was now the course,
    And the Battle of Bataan was giving the teacher remorse…
    The students read it as BATTEN, that “a” sound way too FAINT,
    They’d often PEPPER certain words with vowel sounds that ain’t…
    She thought a little DITTY might help get them speaking straight
    But she just lacked the time it took and guessed it’d have to wait…
    How many times could she correct…before she’d grow complacent?
    She bit her tongue and told herself “Ok be PATIENT…PATIENT”! 🤦🏻‍♀️

  6. Angela must have better eyes than mine, I can’t see a lot of the things she mentions in the cartoon. Today’s jumble was quite easy for me and I wasn’t patient! I’ll have to go up in the attic and pull out my electron microscope to see more detail in the drawing………………………

    • Ha! I wish!…HI Mig…I had much better eyesight before I began doing this, that’s for sure!😂 But before you go climbing into the attic, rest assured, it’s not your eyesight that’s lacking…It’s impossible to SPOT the little details from a newspaper alone. I use my paper to see the puzzle in color, but then I use this site https://tinyurl.com/y5djz9np to get a large picture of the cartoon. And since I’m on an iPad, I can pinch and spread the picture out, and zero in on any section of it. I don’t know what type of device you’re on, but give it a SHOT…And let me know if it helps…I’ll WAIT…😂 Have a good one, Mig …Be well and stay safe out there..🙋🏻‍♀️

      Patient: “Doc, I’m always seeing spots before my eyes”
      Doctor: “Well, didn’t the new glasses I prescribed help”?
      Patient: “Oh, sure…I’m definitely seeing the spots much clearer now…”! 👀 🤦🏻‍♀️

  7. Hi all – Words and answer all came easily today.
    It’s refreshing to see the patient using the non-technological pencil and paper to do his puzzles for a change.

    I just saw David’s video from yesterday. Thanks for the good vibes, and same to you – thanks for all the puzzles!

    Thanks for the details, Angela. I had gone online, but didn’t think to zoom in on the puzzle book. If it were a book of classic Jumbles from the 40’s or 50’s, I’d say he’s offering a cigarette. If not, how about “Pick a card, any card”?

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Here’s one for you, Paul. 😂
    “Since he didn’t care for the Beatles album his neighbor was playing, he tried to BATTEN down his doors and windows, but the FAINT strains of the little DITTY ‘Fixing a Hole’ from Sgt. PEPPER still made it through.”

    • Hey Steve. YVW. I liked the pencil ✏️ too, and I was glad to see that it’s colored correctly! 😉 ‘Gotta love those old #2’s! As for whatever it is that Jeff’s offering? Definitely not a cigarette, and definitely not a vintage cover. Actually, if I’m not mistaken, none of the puzzle books ever featured them on its cover…did they? That’s why I was trying so hard to get a read on it…Want to laugh? At first I thought it was a hot dog…But I think I’m kind of obsessed with hot dogs since the 08/02 puzzle!😂 I made lasagna that day…and I ended up not eating it with the Lou’s…I had them BBQ some hot dogs for me instead! And I ate them again the other night…IDK what it is, 🤷🏻‍♀️…but it’s definitely not the healthiest menu! 😂 Anyway, my second guess was lottery tickets…”Pick a card…any card” type of thing like you’re suggesting…But with not being able to read the dialogue? Your guess is as good as mine…😉 Anyway, since you’ve dedicated your sentence to Paul, here’s one for you. You know how I savor the different use of words…BATTEN piqued my interest! 😉 Have a good one, Steve. Be well, and stay safe out there…🩺🙋🏻‍♀️

      🎶In order to not allow the jingle writer to BATTEN from the DITTY that he plagiarized, the judges began to PEPPER their opinions with FAINT hints, and adopted the mantra “PATIENT, PATIENT”…until the time arose to take action…🎶
