  1. Good Monday morning. Easy breezy from words to cartoon answer. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  2. Douse and carry were instant solves,but outing and lonely,despite the presence of ly,gave reason to pause.But “under control “was an obvious blind solve for the cartoon puzzle.Indeed a Monday Jumble.

  3. If todayโ€™s game was easy for you, then why not try this Monday puzzle from 2009. It was exactly 406 days into Jumble Jeffโ€™s career!

    • 2 minutes 18 seconds (but whoโ€™s counting?) DOUSE was easy! ๐Ÿ˜‚
      The last word took a couple of jumbles, but it wasnโ€™t UN-CAN-E. Iโ€™m surprised you didnโ€™t ask โ€œCANNUE solve this one?โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. Not too often do you find an eleven letter answer without the vowels a,e or I. Just sayin’ . Happy Columbus Day!

  5. Are there words containing the letter y that don’t end in y ? I never see them in the jumble, just sayin..

  6. Good Morning, Everyone. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Happy Columbus Day! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

    ๐ŸšŠ To operate a subway train one needs to have a grip,
    It can get LONELY underground…itโ€™s often a long trip…
    The operators CARRY out whatโ€™s needed for the OUTING,
    While trying to be pleasant…although often there is pouting…
    They need to DOUSE what trouble flares with those who go too slow
    A schedule to adhere to can make resentment grow…
    As long as passengers realize they canโ€™t just lag and stroll
    The operatorโ€™s happy…and keeps things UNDER CONTROL train ๐ŸšŠ

    ๐ŸงฏSince heโ€™d be alone, he wanted to be sure he had everything UNDER CONTROL, and decided to CARRY the extinguisher, just in case he needed to DOUSE a fire while on the LONELY OUTING..๐Ÿงฏ

    โ™ฅ๏ธ His feelings for her too intense, he looked to DOUSE the flame,
    To CARRY his heart on his sleeve…not how to play the game…
    He hated being LONELY, but loveโ€™s OUTING takes a toll,
    And nothing will be gained lest he get things UNDER CONTROL …โ™ฅ๏ธ

    Have a good day, Everyone. Be well and stay safe out there. ๐ŸšŠ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

  7. Still thinking about words with ‘Y’ that is not terminal. Perhaps someone is LYING in wait near the CYCLONE fence then escape on his CYCLE. Maybe wearing a YARMULKE to further disguise himself.

    • Yarmulke? We CAP off at 6 letters! Concentrate..concentrate! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

    • Ok…Hereโ€™s some more…Theyโ€™re (note the placement of my โ€œYโ€)! ๐Ÿ˜‚…not in date order, since theyโ€™re ๐Ÿ˜‰ all off the top of my head….๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

    • Congrats to your Lakers, Mig, and good luck to your Dodgers, playing in that dark mausoleum in Texas instead of sunny warm San Diego.

    • Hehehe, indeed. One of my brothers calls me that…ANG (pronounced like Wag) E-LA. Heโ€™s a wit too…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

  8. Hi all – An easy Monday all around today.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    โ€œNothing could DOUSE the torch he would still CARRY on his LONELY OUTING to their former haunts.โ€

    Geez, now local Bay Area star Joe Morgan is gone. If thereโ€™s been a worse week for losing great baseball players, I donโ€™t remember it. Tom Seaver, Whitey Ford, Ron Perranowski, Bob Gibson, and Iโ€™m probably forgetting others.

    • Tom died in August, but yep. Definitely a heavy toll….Whatโ€™d I say to you the other night? ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
