  1. Good morning. I had a long pause at Fondue. Other that that it was clear sailing especially on the cartoon answer. Back from Atlantic City where seven of us did gambling in 4 hotels, trip to Smithsville twice coming and going and a winery. Lost but had a good time. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • I also paused on fondue,trying to make it into a word starting w UN ,but then after almost giving up,fondue popped into my head.I then had a vague memory of it being an anagram not too long ago.With twins in the cartoon,the solution,”knew different” was obvious,and reminded me of our 6 year old twin granddaughters,Kate and Jane,who are also quite different,

  2. Good Morning, Everyone… I hope this finds you well…🙋🏻‍♀️

    🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♂️ Though most times twins fool people, when they’re put to the test,
    There’s one person they’ll never fool…’cause Mom’s always know best
    These boys may try to pull some wool over her WEARY eyes,
    But there’s no FRIGHT within them… much to their surprise
    Sometimes they’re a dead giveaway, like when Mom serves FONDUE,
    ‘Cause one will dig right into it…the other no can do…
    Maybe when they were babies she may have needed help,
    With little ANKLE bracelets, but in no time learned their yelp…
    While one was loud, the other not, she learned to circumvent…
    Her #1 from #2…Yep, Mom KNEW DIFFERENT! 🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♂️

    🤦🏻‍♀️ WEARY, after twisting her ANKLE while preparing the FONDUE, her husband claimed that he could easily finish it…but the thought alone gave her a FRIGHT, since by past performances she definitely KNEW DIFFERENT…🤦🏻‍♀️

    👵🏻 He woke up and was WEARY after seeing rain outside,
    And he bent to lace his ANKLE boots, annoyance hard to hide…
    But he promised her his FONDUE when he spoke with her last night
    And knowing his Aunt’s frail nature, he’d hate to cause her FRIGHT…
    But he definitely wondered…if her plan was Heaven sent
    She pull off a party? Somehow he just KNEW DIFFERENT…👵🏻

    My thoughts and prayers go out to our readers in California, and to all these in the path of Hurricane Laura. 🙏🏻

    • You are correct in that DIFFERENTLY should have been used. DIFFERENT is a adjective and DIFFERENTLY is an adverb.

      If you’re just hanging out with your friends (like we are here) and having a casual conversation, then using “different” may be the most socially acceptable option even though it’s technically incorrect.

    • You know something, Dar? You just made me realize that I went with the wrong word. I used DIFFERENTLY, while David’s answer was DIFFERENT! Yikes..😱.rewrite’s are in order. I’m always rushing, and I just went ahead and wrote the way I always used the phrase. But Different is an adjective, while Differently is an adverb, so grammatically maybe both are accepted, albeit not correct…https://tinyurl.com/y5ob8w9n. Either way, I’m going to amend my prose and poetry…so I’ll be in sync with David! 😉Thanks for commenting, Dar. Be well, and stay safe out there. 🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Piece of cake although I first thought the 2nd jumble word was kneal, when I did the answer and worked backwards I realized it had to be ankle.

  4. Overall an easy one. ANKLE was twisted for me briefly, then came FONDUE which I remember dipping into in a past Jumble. The solution was easy for me. Fun puzzle all around.

  5. Easy one this morning. Fondue has appeared before and tripped me up in the past but got it today. I too thought differently would be the last word but alas not enough letters. Hope all of you have pleasant day.

  6. Hi all – Putting the GHT together worked for FRIGHT. It took me a couple of jumbles to get ANKLE, and about twice that long to finally see FONDUE after seeing things like FOUNDED and UNFOUND. The answer was pretty obvious.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “Her FRIGHT passed quickly, but she then became WEARY contemplating the long cleanup after the FONDUE pot shattered, leaving her ANKLE-deep in warm cheese.”

  7. Hi Everyone –
    Like Betty, Fondue has troubled me in the past but not today. I also wasn’t sure about different or differently and still am not. I don’t know where to find an authoritative source on this, but an anonymous poster on a grammar website said it could be either: Know different means you know the proposition in question is incorrect, while know differently means you come to that knowledge in a different way, like through consulting an encyclopedia.

  8. For what it’s worth, there’s also the “Think Different” Apple ad campaign:
    “Craig Tanimoto is also credited with opting for “Think different” rather than “Think differently,” which was considered but rejected by Lee Clow. Jobs insisted that he wanted “different” to be used as a noun, as in “think victory” or “think beauty”. He specifically said that “think differently” wouldn’t have the same meaning to him. He wanted to make it sound colloquial, like the phrase “think big”. ”


  9. Weary was a slam dunk, just put the y at the end as with most words containing a y
