  1. Good Morning, Everyone 🔔 SHARE AND SHARE ALIKE?🔔

    🎶 You can RING MY BELL…ring my bell…You can ring my bell, ring my bell….🎶 “Ring My Bell” – Anita Ward 1979 https://tinyurl.com/ky2lmu2

    🔔 So someone took a PHOTO…it’s Jumble trading stock,
    They opened with a rousing bang…looks solid as a rock…
    I think we all should HURRY and SAFELY invest dough,
    The market may be volatile, but you know how it goes…
    I don’t know who they’re standing with, perhaps some of their staff?
    The woman’s looking happy…But the guy? He needs a laugh…
    Perhaps he didn’t INVENT…oh I meant to type invest,
    ‘Cause if he did I think he’d look as happy as the rest…
    Who knows what he is thinking…but he does look the misfit…
    I think that’s it, he missed the first shot to SHARE THE PROFIT! 🔔

    All four of our words this morning have been SHAREd on these pages before, but we do have one repeat anagram, with RUYHR from April 23rd of last year. https://tinyurl.com/y5q6eut2 . And aside for a few of the Early Birds having a slight pause at SAFELY, the rest of it was all a QUICK SELL…Ok, on to SHAREing my thoughts with you…

    Today we see the illustrious team of Jeff and David, supposedly on the floor of the NYSE, and we’re able to learn that the Jumble’s gone public. https://tinyurl.com/yys29rgt. From the ticker at top, we can see that the Stock did extremely well, as Jeff is saying that it’s in demand, while David’s pleased that it opened higher than he thought it would. With David’s hand on the bell, https://tinyurl.com/ol4ud8a, and Jeff’s poised to do the same, it seems we’re at the end of Jumbles first trading day, and we see that it’s up $25 a share…while XWRD is down by what looks like either $15 or $19 a share. So it boils DOWN TO, (no pun intended), a company goes public…and we can buy SHAREs…and hopefully, the money we invest will make us a PROFIT…And there you have it, Folks…in a nutshell! The investors were allowed to SHARE THE PROFIT! And you gotta love that double whammy with SHARE!

    Eye candy? Both David and Jeff are clad in shirts BEARing the signature “J” logo. And the bell hasn’t been rung yet, since we don’t see any lines drawn denoting its’ resonating sound. And as for the man and woman flanking them? They’re not exactly Jeff’s AVERAGE-looking characters, but I might come up SHORT if I tried to identify them…so as not to be a laughingSTOCK, I’ll just save you the BULL….

    So, There you have it Folks, Done! Wishing you all a great day, and I’ll leave you with a little Stock Market humor….I’ve started investing in STOCKS…Mostly beef, chicken, and vegetable…One day I hope to be a bouillonaire…But my best TIP? Invest in puns…The MOCK-IT has never been higher. Be well, Everyone…and stay safe out there…🔔🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🔑 When he saw the PHOTO of his Professor trying to SAFELY INVENT a new anti-theft device, he figured he’d better HURRY to get in on it, and SHARE THE PROFIT…🔑

    💃🏻 He knew he should tread SAFELY, not HURRY into things,
    His reputation sullied from his proclivity with flings…
    But once he saw her PHOTO, he knew that he was done,
    He fell in love so quickly…even ‘fore it had begun…
    You’d think he’d INVEST caution, not act like such a flit…
    Let’s hope he’ll have some luck this time…so he’ll SHARE THE PROFIT 💃🏻

      • LOL! No, but what a great observation. ⬆️ and ⬇️! X-Words! Well done, 👏🏻👏🏻 Burger, but that’s not it. This is something “New and Different“…🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Hi Roger. Sorry you missed it. I answered it in my reply to Steve. It was the length of Jeff’s hair. It appears that he’s let it grow much longer. Be well, Roger.. and stay safe out there. 🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Good morning. Not much of a problem today. I was able to finish everything and enjoyed the cartoon answer. Enjoyed your song choice Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Thank you…And I agree…a quick CLOSE today! Have a good one…and I wish you the same…🔔🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Good Morning. When I saw the PHOTO as one of the words, I thought of a song. Angela this one’s for you. “When I think back of all the crap I learned in High School, It’s a wonder I can think at all.” KODACHROME. Paul Simon, 1973. (Rhymin’ Simon)
    The two Con men had to take a PHOTO to prove they stole the jewels in a HURRY, for they had set off the alarm. They had to INVENT a way to getaway SAFELY so they could SHARE the PROFIT.
    (Notice words are in order) Hope everybody stays safe and wear your mask.! ANOM

  5. A surprisingly easy Jumble puzzle for a Saturday,with a quick solve,all the way around,even after trekking up here to Dixon to watch the twins.Have a Tony the Tiger great day!

    • Good Morning, Professor. Yes, an easy go of it today. Enjoy your family, Prof…Be well and stay safe out there…🔔🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Hi all – No problem with the words; just put LY at the end for SAFELY. Thought the answer would be something like CORNER THE MARKET, and SHORT THE MARKET even fit the letter layout, but not the letters. Saw SHARE when I wrote down the letters, and then the solution.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    I laughed at “bouillonaire” Angela! I think I’ll have some, maybe to-MARROW.
    I give up – I don’t see anything different in the Daily News Jumble or the one in the Chronicle. Their part at the bottom with “Yesterday’s answers” etc is always formatted differently from the Chronicle’s, but then so is the header.

    Woke up this morning with a Joni lyric in my head:
    🎵”It’s got me hoping for the future, and worrying about the past
    ‘Cause I’ve seen some hot, hot blazes come down to smoke and ash”🎵
    And another all-purpose one of hers:
    🎵”Reading the news and it sure looks bad”🎵
    Deep Purple – 🎵”Smoke on the water; fire in the sky”🎵

    “Investors in Polaroid wanted Edwin Land to HURRY and INVENT instant PHOTO processing so they could SHARE THE PROFIT, but he insisted on doing it SAFELY no matter how long it took.”

    • Hey Steve…ToMARROW..LOL!..Tks..I laughed too! 😉…And you’ve managed to DEVELOP 😉 a very INVENTive sentence…👏🏻👏🏻I like it…The something new and different? IDK…Maybe it’s just me…and I could be wrong…but I thought for sure someone else would notice. Look at Jeff. It LOCKS like he’s decided to leave his hair grown out. It seems that a lot of men, after being quarantined for weeks and unable to visit their barbers, GREW to embrace their new look…and are now going to great LENGHTS to keep it that way. I think it looks good…you know …It sort of GROWS on you! Have a good one, Steve..Be well and stay safe out there…🔔🙋🏻‍♀️

    • …Oh, and I hear you with the fires…You’re all in my prayers…🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Thanks Angela, we’re safe. I’d be more worried if I were staring down the barrel of those *two* hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico.

  7. No problemo today, maybe tomorrow will be a bear market??? Invent came slowest but not slow. Hope all is well and the weekend is unfolding easily for you’all!

    • Yikes, Mig! Can we BEAR for it to get any worse? It’s definitely no time for the faint of heart! 😉 Tks for the kind sentiment, and I wish you the same…And stay safe out there…🔔🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Easy one today. Everything fell into place nicely. I didn’t notice anything new and different, Angela so thanks for clueing in the clueless. Now if David had added hair, that I would have noticed. Hope all of you have a good day.

    • LOL! 👏🏻👏🏻 Yeah, I think we all would have! But I wouldn’t go so far as to say clueless…It’s not that obvious, I guess…just seemed different to me…and I thought I’d SHARE 😉 it!…Wishing you a good day too, Betty. Be well and stay safe out there…👨🏻‍🦲🧑🏻‍🦱🙋🏻‍♀️
