  1. Good Morning, Everyone. 🕺🏻 HIP, HIP…..NO WAY! 🕺🏻

    🎶 A well’a bless my soul…What’sa wrong with me?…I’m itchin’ like a man in a fuzzy tree. My friends say I’m actin’ wild as a bug…I’m in love.?I’m all shook up…🎶 “All Shook Up” Elvis 1957

    🕺🏻 When Elvis Presley hit the scene, the year was ‘56,
    He appeared on the Dorsey show…this boy from Tupelo sticks,
    And while teenagers found him cool, the parents all cried naught…
    ‘Cause Elvis with that pelvis?…Well…the cut from different CLOTH
    Months later Sullivan did call…and now it’s ‘57,
    And young girls with their “LEAKY” eyes…transported into Heaven…
    But though he wasn’t SPEEDY, by the show now number three…
    Old Ed known for LOUNGE acts galore said…”Full screen? It won’t be”
    He censored our Boy’s body, only waist up would we see,
    But not much did it matter, ‘cause Ed made a “star” of he…
    So while we didn’t see the Shake…that made him Rock ‘N Roll,
    America saw Elvis…ratings like a Super Bowl…
    But parents still were shocked by him…and that was sure a yup…
    Our Elvis got them real flustered…he got them ALL SHOOK UP! 🕺🏻

    Ok…So before we start, and you think I’m trying to SHAKE things up, I want to set the RECORD straight…First? 1956-57? Yes, I know there wasn’t a Super Bowl yet…but I was going for the comparison to the ratings…(And more so, you know I needed the rhyme for Rock ‘N Roll…Work with me people)! Secondly, I couldn’t find any documentation of Elvis performing 🎶All Shook Up🎶 on any of his TV appearances…so we know David was just alluding to the song being recorded that year…And lastly…Yes, we do have another two words ending in “Y”. And no, there’s no need to mention it. I know it, you know it, David knows it…we all know it. But if you remember, a short while ago, a few of us here listed a slew of words where the Y wasn’t acting as caboose…so how ‘bout we just let that sleeping HOUND DOG lie…I mean Y keep howling at the moon…when David’s given us so much to SING about, right? ..Ok…now that we’ve gotten that out of the way…let’s ROLL…

    Just as yesterday, we’re looking at another split decision with our words this morning. Four old favorites, and two old anagrams. According to my Jumble RECORDS, we’ve seen KALYE, as is, three times in the past: 04/30/15, 12/22/15, and 01/26/17. It just keeps SPRINGING up, right? And our other Repeat Repeat is DESEYP, which made the Jumble FAST track back on 09/06/12. And it was SPEEDY work of completing our puzzle this morning… everything was in TUNE…

    So, Elvis. Finding ourselves today in a typical living room of the late 1950s, we see a Mom and Dad, and two tweens watching Elvis perform on TV. As I mentioned earlier, I can’t put my finger on what show this might be, because when Elvis did appear on Ed Sullivan’s show on January 6th, 1957, he was filmed waist up, and here we’re seeing his entire body on the screen. But should you be interested, here’s a terrific article https://tinyurl.com/y28kzgdb regarding Elvis’s TV appearances, Anyway, poetic license aside, David’s message is clear. Elvis took the country by storm, and when the parents of America saw this man, with the greased-up hair, the curling, sneering lip, and the gyrating swivel hips? Doing what he did best? Well, they didn’t take it sitting down…And as we can see from our dialogue, went so far as to dub it “filth”. Yep, Elvis definitely RATTLED some nerves…He got them ALL SHOOK UP! https://tinyurl.com/y5z4654e Good one David! Another Top Ten Hit!

    Eye candy? Mom in her pearls, and Dad a suit and tie, in their own homes at night, are definitely signs of the times. Dress back then had it’s formality. And the saddle shoes on 🎶Little Sister🎶are right on point. Jr though, trying to move like the King? Hmm…the kid definitely sinks like a ROCK. But the image of Elvis on screen, the Jordanaires behind him, with that swivel hip and leg in motion is what drew me in. That man definitely knew how to move…

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and IMO, “All Shook Up” https://tinyurl.com/yyuqxzuf is the real 45 we should be talking about. Just sayin’…And I’ll leave you with an Elvis memory of mine. A few years ago I tried to book tickets for an Elvis tribute night over the phone. I had to press One for the money, two for the show…Ok. Ok….I’m going…And Thank you..Thank you very much…🕺🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🚰 ALL SHOOK UP when the CLOTH no longer held around the LEAKY pipe in the LOUNGE, he hoped the plumber he called would make a SPEEDY appearance…🚰

    🍷She had to move real SPEEDY, when she saw the table wet,
    The glass turned out a LEAKY one, some type of CLOTH she’d get…
    There goes her hope to just relax…her wish to LOUNGE disturbed,
    This dripping glass now causing her to really feel perturbed…
    She glanced down as she moved along…and there she saw her pup
    There’s Merlot on her Beagle…now she’s really ALL SHOOK UP 🍷

  3. Good morning. Easy breezy from words to the cartoon answer. Especially the cartoon answer because I was in front of the small TV watching him gyrate the second time he was on the air. On the Ed Sullivan show the first time he appeared he was only shown from the waist up. They thought it was to crude to show his moves. You can only laugh what you see now on the screen. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Definitely an easy, breezy one today…But the Sullivan show? I think we all tend to think that the censored performance was Elvis’s first appearance. I know I thought so. But it was really his third. He’d been on the show twice before, in 1956. And he’d been on a few shows before Ed decided to have him on. If you have time, check out the link I’ve included in my post. It’s a really good run down of all the TV Elvis did. I think the half screen performance is the one people tend to remember because of all the notoriety it received. And you’re so right. We’ve definitely come a long way with censorship since then! Have a good one, Paul. Be well, and stay safe. 🕺🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

      • All I’m saying Angie is the first time on Ed Sullivan show they showed him from the waist up only. The second time they had the whole body I think the first time he sung Love me tender. The second time All shook up. But I wouldn’t bet on it. Because I was just a kid.

        • Paul…He appeared on Sullivan’s show on September 9th and October 28th of 1956. On his third appearance on the show, January 6th, 1957, he was then shown from the waist up only. 🕺🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

        • Paul…If you get a chance, read the article I linked in my post. It lays it all out…🕺🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Indeed his first appearance was on the Dorsey show on the old Dumont network.Being an avid Elvis fan in ’57 and recalling buying the 45 RPM record (with the big hole in it) of All Shook Up,the anagrams and then the cartoon solution was a 100% blind solve.One more thing we’re in Dixon on twin watch,on a beautiful Spring like 70 degree day.

    • Definitely an easy one today, Prof. Enjoy your family and the weather. Be well and stay safe. 🕺🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. I just want to be your Teddy Bear….! Elvis on Sullivan was one of those generational moments which lead to Beatles and Doors and Kinks and then Mamas & Papas who were quite different from the ones in today’s cartoon.
    I saw Elvis at the Forum in Inglewood later in his life when he was the ‘Fat Elvis’. It was a hot day and so much sweat flew off that corpulent body. What an era. I was driving across Maui on the day the news flashed of his death.
    Fun Jumble to reminisce over!!! Easy.
    And today for the first time in 190 days we have actual rain in SoCal…….
    Have a great one!

    • Good Morning, Mig. Sad that Elvis came to such a tragic end. Like so many great artists, I suppose after a while it just becomes too hard to live up to all the hype. Glad you’re finally having rain..here’s to a substantial downpour! 💦. Have a good one, Mig. Stay safe out there. 🕺🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. 🔠 Jumble Trivia: Puzzle of April 12th, 2014… “When a young Elvis topped the music charts in April 1957, some parents were” …ALL SHOOK UP …
    And this has been bugging me all morning, and I finally found it…Back on June 1st, 2018, there was a puzzle about Nate Sherman, and his founding Midas Muffler. He was shown in the company’s garage, being interviewed, and there was a mechanic, lying on a creeper, working under a car. The license plate? “ALLSHKUP”! Don’t you just love Jumble Trivia? 🔠🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Easy one today. Elvis really did shake up the music world. He had a marvelous voice. I still love his music. Happy Saturday to all!

    • Yes, he did, Betty. And I still listen to him too. In fact this morning I was thinking how could anyone not start “moving” listening to “All Shook Up”? Exercise the fun way! 😉 Happy Saturday to you too, Betty. Have a good one. 🕺🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Hi all – SPEEDY took a couple of jumbles and LOUNGE a couple more, even though we had it lately (although maybe it was part of an answer rather than a separate word.) The answer was obvious to any Elvis fan.

    Elvis blew everyone’s mind and was the center of attention of course, but only much later did I come to appreciate just how great the musicians in his band were; Scotty Moore on guitar etc. And now with so many performances available on YouTube, it’s even more apparent.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Thanks for the great links and the Jumble ‘all shook up’ trivia Angela; I kind of remember that license plate.

    • Hey Steve…Even though Lounge appeared as a word about a year ago, you may be thinking of it used in the Lounge Lizard puzzles. They’re always a treat! 😉 And you’re welcome. It was a fun puzzle to play around with. Hope your day’s going well, Steve. Enjoy! 🍷🕺🏻🙋🏻‍♀️
