  1. Good Morning, Everyone… I hope this finds you well…..

    🎶 MONEY don’t get everything, it’s true…What it don’t get, I can’t use…Now give me MONEY…(That’s what I want)…That’s what I want…🎶 “Money” – The Beatles 1963

    🏦 There were those days when we would TRUDGE into a bank for things,
    Commercials with their come-ons kept the JARGON interesting
    We’d OCCUPY a place on line, by VIRTUE we’d have patience,
    All calm, and nothing BRAZEN, we exuded sheer complacence…
    But today things have come so far, we needn’t go inside,
    We bank right from a phone…whenever our schedule abides…
    But in this case it’s TRICKY, something new…questions may mount
    Your money’s on the table…lots to TAKE INTO ACCOUNT 🏦

    Money…DOUGH..We all KNEAD it…So, todays words are giving us two Repeat Repeats…TRIVUE from January 30th, 2011, and CYRITK from October 18th, 2017. The others…nothing new, but excellently anagrammed. And while the Early Birds were right on the MONEY with them all, Jargon did grab their INTEREST for an extra moment or two…

    Today, finding ourselves at a neighborhood bank, we see who appear to be a recently retired couple, BRANCHing out to see where they can get the most bang for their BUCK. Seeking the services of a new financial institution, they’re CHECKING with the bank rep to be sure that what the bank’s offering is in BALANCE with their needs. And while the rep is doing her best to assure them that her bank has their best INTEREST at heart, it seems that our husband, scowling, is still trying to make CENTS of it all…I mean let’s face it, Folks…when it comes to our future financial SECURITY, as the rep is pointing out, there’s a lot to TAKE INTO ACCOUNT! https://tinyurl.com/yylsqtwv Ka-ching! COUNT this as another one of David’s wins!

    Eye candy? Off in the background…an opened vault with a solitary guard. But does that ADD up? Just one guard on duty? I think they may need to make a CHANGE there… And our bank rep, who appears to be a leftie (!), is wearing a name tag, only it’s WITH DRAWN…I mean drawn with, a blank…But the MONEY shot that grabbed my INTEREST? If you look real closely, our man’s blue shirt? It bears the Signature Jumble “J” logo, encircled in a square…about the size of a QUARTER… And it promoted me to make a MONEY LAUNDERING joke…only I can’t think of one ATM… https://tinyurl.com/y4evfe6k

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Wishing you all a good day…Be well, stay safe…and keep in mind…When your Bank tells you that your loan is outstanding?…it’s never a complement…🏦🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🆙 In an effort to help their friend OCCUPY his new apartment, they didn’t realize that they’d need to TRUDGE up three flights of stairs, and thought him pretty BRAZEN to have not mentioned it…but by VIRTUE of his usual behavior, they needed to TAKE INTO ACCOUNT the TRICKY JARGON he used when asking them…”I’m definitely moving on up…”🆙

    🤔 While patience is a VIRTUE, a lot may TRUDGE through life,
    Where it will never OCCUPY their realm as something rife
    The phrase, part of our JARGON, some get BRAZEN at its use,
    It seems that patience sometimes can be bad if there’s abuse…
    It can ‘oft times be TRICKY, like a spouse who’s always late
    Now that can try your patience…when one constantly must wait…
    But those who patience do possess, whatever the amount
    Most likely have less stress…it’s wise to TAKE INTO ACCOUNT…🤔

  3. Morning, Everyone,
    Got a kick out of dough/knead and your loan joke at the end, Angela.
    The answer came quickly but I had to back into Jargon. I think when there’s a J, it’s often the first letter of the word. That worked for me. I had a relative who used to get lots of free gifts opening accounts at banks, but I don’t know if they do that anymore.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. Thank you. And I’ll make you laugh further, because my friends and I were definitely laughing this morning…The loan joke is art imitating life. It happened years ago, when a group of friends and I were discussing another friend who we felt was becoming too irresponsible. Two outstanding loans were mentioned, and someone offered..”Well, that’s in his favor…if they’re deemed outstanding”. It stopped us all in our tracks! 😂 Needless to say, ‘til this day we still tease him about it. And in his defense, he always said that it just went to prove how financially solvent he was…he never made the loan=outstanding connection. Maybe…but it’s still funny though. Anyway…Speaking of my friends, a few of them blinked at Jargon too this morning. David did a good job anagramming that one. And I never thought about the J designation, but you may have a point there…As for the banks, I have no idea if they still do those kind of promotions, but I’ve heard stories of the “serial” account people too. Too funny…Toasters 🍞 come to mind! And I also remember a lot of ads in the papers, besides the TV commercials. But I’d be hard pressed to remember the last time I was in a bank…it’s definitely been a long while….Have a good one, Caroline. Be well and stay safe out there…🏦🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. 🎃 For those of us who are regular players of the Jumble, we’re all very familiar with the Headless Horseman, who’s made many an appearance in our puzzles. Well, if you’ve enjoyed them, you’re definitely going to get a kick out of this. It’s got to be one of the most entertaining things I’ve seen in a while…And God knows, we could all use the levity…This guy’s a genius…Take a look…guaranteed it’ll make you smile…🎃🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Jargon gave me reason to pause,but having solved that anagram,along w the others,despite the Sunday number of letters,the cartoon solution was a quick solve.As far as going into an actual bank,I used to do it several times a week,but with the pandemic actually closing the bank to walk ins for several months,those visits ceased.As far as gifts,when we got married in 1969, our local S&L gave us a toaster,dishes,luggage,just about everything for on top of the kitchen sink,just short of an actual kitchen sink.

    • Good Morning, Professor…Yes, it was an easy solve. And boy, have things changed over the years, huh? Have a good one, Prof. Be well and stay safe out there. 🏦🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Good morning. I took some time solving Trudge and thought that would lead the pack in hardest word. I was surprised to see it wasn’t. When it came time for the cartoon answer I had put it aside for an interesting piece on TV and when I came back to it the answer just popped into my head. Speaking of free gifts. Do you remember when you got very nice dishes for going to the movies. We got a complete set of dishware, service for eight. The plates were gold trimmed. They were from my wife’s aunts. Still have them all in the china closet. They were taken out for special occasions. We got an Indian blanket on my side of the family and an IOU (never collected) on my wife’s side of family for a wedding gift. I laugh when I think of it but in reality, neither ones had much themselves back then. As always, take care and be safe out there.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn…You always give me a laugh. And I’ve never gotten anything from a movie theater, but I do recall my Mother and her sisters speaking about it. As I told the Professor, things certainly have changed over the years…Paul, I meant to ask you…Was it your parish that had the statue of the Blessed Mother vandalized? https://tinyurl.com/y5hxe6p5. I swear, I don’t know what possesses people to do these kind of things…it’s so saddening. Hope your day goes well, Brooklyn. And stay safe out there. 🏦🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Good evening Angela. No it was not my parish. Not that far away though. One of the guys from bocce go there and had all the Pictures of the damage to the Blessed Mother on his phone. It makes you wonder what kind of a sick person would do that. Take care.

        • Hi Paul. Definitely…It’s so sad seeing something like this. What a person gets out of it, I’ll never understand. Hope you had a good day…Take care, and enjoy your night…🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Hi Paul – My wife has stories about getting dishes from gas stations. She also tells of putting one of those gold trimmed plates in the microwave, and watching a bright spark burn around in a traveling circle. So don’t do that! 😂 🔥

      • Hi Steve. No problem there. It hasn’t been out of the China closet I bet in 50 years or more. And it probably won’t be removed until I’m removed from this earth unless one of my kids wants it. Take care.

  7. Easy puzzle for a Sunday. Love the Headless Horseman cyclist, Angela. Certainly an appropriate activity for this time of year. Am wondering if we will get a Headless Horseman puzzle this week? Hope all of you have a good day.

    • Good Morning, Betty. Yes, it is an easy one. But that Horseman? Right? I keep watching it…and I can’t believe the creativity of this guy. And the guts! Not to mention his BALANCE…(no pun intended)…I’d love to meet him…And I’m hoping we’ll get another Horseman puzzle too. We had one last year, at this time… https://tinyurl.com/yyamfjsh, so fingers crossed! 🤞🏻Hoping you enjoy your day too, Betty. Be well, and stay safe out there. 🎃🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Hi all – Got the words pretty quickly; just happened to recognize the GE suffix to get TRUDGE, and the J’s, G’s and Z’s helped with the others.
    I thought the answer would be really easy with something like HOLD THEIR INTEREST, but the letter count didn’t work. So then I was stuck for a few minutes until thinking of ACCOUNT which gave it away.
    I also liked the little ‘J’ emblem on the shirt which you would have needed a microscope to see if it weren’t available online.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Thanks for the Headless Horseman story, Angela! What is it about Concord Mass that makes guys want to ride around shouting or singing (“One if by land…” 😂 )
    It also made me smile when I realized your “ATM” must be Internet JARGON for “at the moment” and then found out I was correct.

    “James Kirk didn’t want to TRUDGE through Starfleet’s ‘Kobayashi Maru’ simulator test and by VIRTUE of his experience was able to TAKE INTO ACCOUNT some TRICKY computer JARGON, using a BRAZEN ploy to ultimately OCCUPY the Captain’s chair on the Enterprise.”

    • Hey Steve. The Headless guy definitely made my day…maybe my week for that matter. I swear, I’m in love! 😂 But as for my ATM pun…That’s why I included the link right after it, giving the double usage…I know I’m hard pressed sometimes to keep up with Leetspeak, so I figured if anybody was thinking…”What the hell is she talking about now…” (And yes, I’m aware)! 😂😂..I’d cut them off at the chase! 😂 Have a good one, Steve. Be well, and stay safe out there…🏦🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Hi Mike…Oops! I’m looking at this, and I had to go back and CHECK my notes! I printed the wrong date for VIRTUE in my post.🤦🏻‍♀️ It was used as is, TRIVUE back on January 30th, 2011. I do this thing where I list all the last appearance dates, but then circle any Repeat Repeats…and I circled the March 2020 date by mistake. Just one more casualty of doing this at 4:30 in the morning! 😂. Ok, I’ll correct mine, and if you’d like, I can make the correction here on your listing also. Your call…Just so that we BALANCE out…😉🙋🏻‍♀️

        • No Mike, it’s not wrong. When I saw that you had tagged the entry for Tricky, as being a repeat anagram, but not Virtue, it made me take a second look at what I had written. But you’re doing last appearance dates only, so it wouldn’t have come into play…Sorry, my oversight…👍🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Simple Sunday solve!
    You have some pretty funny things to say today, Angela! Headless Horseman is one of my favorite bits in Jumble so I found your post interesting. Headless cyclist methinks……… Never got a toaster from a bank but did get a box kite at a Saturday matinee when I was a wee laddy.
    Don’t get me started on yesterday’s Dodger tragedy.

    • Why thank you, Mig…as long as you’re not being facetious! 🤔Let’s face it, I really don’t know you all that well, and for all I know, you could be one of the…”What the hell…” people out there! 😂 It’s all in the inflection, ya know? 😉 But, yes, I’m a big fan of the HH too, and as I told Betty, I’m hoping he makes another appearance soon. You know, I’m not sure how long you’ve been following us, but I have a little serendipity-type thing going on with the HH history…https://tinyurl.com/yxhvkhzy. This cemetery isn’t far from my house…And I’ve written about it here, but as I said, you may not have been with us then. Anyway, again, I’ve never gotten as much as a how do you do from any movie theater, but if I had a choice, I think I’d take your kite over the dishes! I’ve been hearing, “Why don’t you go fly a kite” so often throughout my life, that I’ve come to find it endearing! 😂😂. And as for the game last night? Unlike you, I don’t have a horse (no pun intended) in this race, but as a sports fan? You gotta admit…it was one hell of a show…Kept your INTEREST right up to that last minute…😉 Have a good one, Mig. Be well, stay safe, and good luck tonight….🐎🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Interesting information on Ichabod, particularly how his name was used without permission. At least he got cleaned up tombstones.
        I can be facetious but wasn’t in this instance….

        • Yes, that place had gotten pretty run down there for a while. It’s definitely an old location…And I was just breaking your shoes about being facetious…You know I appreciate the Shout Out…🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Hey Mig (at the risk of getting you started 😂) – I’m surprised to see us both here – I thought at least one of us would have had a heart attack watching last night’s game! My World Series memories go back as far as seeing the end of Don Larson’s perfect game on TV in ‘56, but I can’t remember a more exciting game than this one. And amid all the records that were referenced, the one that got my attention was when Justin Turner tied one of Duke Snider’s – can’t remember the last time I heard that name!

      • Hi Steve. Another interesting fact. I had Duke Snider’s autograph along with a dozen others like Peewee Reese, Carl Furillo, Jackie Robinson and my brother had gotten Dazzy Vance for me. To preserve them I scotched taped over them in my 1956 World Series scrap book of the World Series. Well after all these years the tape peeled off the names taking most of the writing with it. Still have my ticket from the game at Yankee Stadium. Only problem is I glued it in the scrap book so you only see the face of the ticket. Oh well,I still have the memories of my father ,brother and cousin being there with me. My cousin still has the foul ball from Roy Campanella (unsigned). Take care.
