  1. Good Morning, Everyone….🎺 GETTING DOWN TO BRASS FACTS! 🎺

    🎶 Because you know I’m all about that bass, bout that bass, NO TREBLE, I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass, NO TREBLE…I’m all ’bout that bass, ’bout that bass, NO TREBLE…I’m all ’bout that bass…🎶 “All About That Bass” – Meghan Trainor 2014 https://tinyurl.com/n3lgtbb

    🎺 The Father acts as EMCEE, and today this band’s of one,
    Perhaps the future might bring us an OCTET for his son…
    He’s practicing his heart out, a CALLUS we might see,
    Develop on his finger as he tries for those high E’s…
    To the bucking little BRONCO, Dad is saying, “Don’t be glum…
    Keep trying and you’ll get it…then it won’t be “TREBLE-SOME”🎺

    Today’s solve? Maybe you need to have a working knowledge of music…but I’m not sure. But I will NOTE here, that the BLARING, I mean glaring clue was nestled right there in the question…”The HIGH Notes”…TREBLE. https://tinyurl.com/yxp8phzr. ..And once you got that out of the way…the remaining four letters came into PLAY…

    As another work week draws to a close, today we find ourselves with another split decision. Nothing new in the way of our words, but we do HALVE two repeat anagrams, from last year. MEEEC https://tinyurl.com/y3z6c863 from June 5th, and COTTE https://tinyurl.com/yyf6jev2 from August 23rd. And E I E I O! The E’s are running amok, aren’t they? Pat Sajak would be in his glory! And if it wasn’t for CALLUS, which caused a little BUMP in the road, the Early Birds would have casually SCALEd, I mean sailed right through them all this morning, if you catch my RIFF, I mean drift…Anyway, let’s TUNE in to our cartoon…

    So, talk about being put on the carpet!…What’s probably a scene very common to a lot of us, today we see a young boy, trying his best to master that valve and hit those high notes. Surrounded by his long suffering family, it’s amusing to see the three different reactions Jeff’s afforded us. There’s Mom, supportive but with that incredulous grain of salt, Dad, totally encouraging, and the ever disapproving little brother. Sibling HIGHvalry, so to speak…And yes, our little guy’s having “some trouble” with those high notes…They’re definitely “TREBLE-SOME”! Toot your own horn, David! You’ve hit another high note with this one!

    Eye candy? First, there’s the subtleties…Mom’s wide-eyed look of astonishment, accompanied by her hand rising to her mouth, Dad’s stoic face as he records the performance on his IPhone, …and the brothers…well ok, maybe he’s not all that subtle. I guess we can say he’s the most atTUNEd to the whole thing…Then there’s the more obvious…The straining puffed cheeks of our little musician, along with the lifting of his right foot as he struggles to RISE to the occasion. Plus the tiny tuft of hair upon his head…And the musical dont’s, I mean notes are made visible with Jeff’s jagged lines emanating from the horn. But the eye catcher for me? In the background, atop the table? There’s a photo of the family from earlier days. And if you look real closely, you’ll NOTE that Dad didn’t have a mustache back then. And tHAIR’s where I found my little gem!

    So, There you have it, Folks, Done. Have a good one…Be well, stay safe, and here’s hoping we all get to hit those high notes today…🎺🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 🐎 After meeting with the OCTET of riders, and noticing how each one had at least one CALLUS on their hands, he wondered if it would be TROUBLESOME if he used that as comic material when he’d act as EMCEE at the annual BRONCO Busters affair…🐎

    🗣 The OCTET got together for their practice every week,
    A CALLUS here, a wrist with sprain, but still their music tweaked…
    Their piece this year, original…the name “Tale of a BRONCO”…
    They still needed an EMCEE though…to open up their show
    They wanted someone classy, who’d know where they’re coming from
    And hoped making the ideal choice won’t end up TROUBLESOME…🗣

  3. Hi Everyone –
    The composer puns in the voting box made me smile. I had some trouble with Octet but not with the answer, perhaps because I see so many puns on this site. I didn’t know the real meaning of Treble until I looked it up today. I’m familiar with your song choice, Angela, but I thought the word in the song was trouble, not treble. 2.4 billion views for the video, wow.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. Ever since I posted this morning, I have my friends and family texting me like crazy, saying that they couldn’t get the solve. So I’m figuring that my thinking one needed to know what Treble means is valid.…and that’s why I attached the link to its definition. And as I mentioned, once you had that down pat, the rest fell into place. And I’m with you, it’s a great pun…As for Meghan’s song, you’re not alone. I know a few people who were singing it as “Trouble”. The old Mondegreen https://tinyurl.com/y32pzw7y. And I can definitely understand the views on it…it’s such a catchy tune, and I always liked it. I especially like how she recorded it in answer to her body image issues, and how she finally heeded her Mothers advice to see herself as beautiful. There’s so much body shaming that goes on today, especially amongst young girls, and it’s so uncalled for and damaging…This song is definitely an anthem for acceptance. Wishing you a great day, Caroline. Be well and stay safe. 🎺🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Loved your song choice Angela. Your right about it being catchy. With the video, it was enjoyable. Take care.

        • Thanks, Brooklyn. It does get your toes to tappin’! Have a good one, Paul…and stay safe out there.🎺🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I agree that the song has a much needed message.I like it and the video, which I hadn’t see before.

  4. Good morning. This has been mostly a bad week for me so far. I just realized I voted for Emcee as the hardest word when in reality it was Octet that I had to look up. Then when I got this far, my writing just disappeared. Looking forward to next week. Oh, gave up and looked for the cartoon answer. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Next week? We still have tomorrow and Sunday to get to! 😉 No worries, Paul. In the grand scheme of things, this is all just child’s play! Hope your morning’s going well….🎺🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. I’ve also had a rough week with few complete solves,and despite having solved the anagrams,and being a 60 plus year musician,and very familiar with the treble side of music,was stumped by the cartoon puzzle.Rather than thinking treble,I was thinking trumpet or trombone ,as more of a horn related answer.

  6. No problems with the anagrams but alas the cartoon answer blew right by me. I’m familiar with treble but it just didn’t come to mind. There’s always tomorrow. Have a good day all.

    • BLEW right by you? 👏🏻👏🏻! Good one! Wishing you a good day too, Betty. Be well and stay safe…🎺🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. This was a more challenging day for me. The words took longer than usual and I couldn’t devine the solution. BRONCO and CALLUS took much longer than usual! Good pun for the solution.
    It’s really cold for Cally so naturally we are getting fire warnings and power outages. Yikes!

    • Hi Mig. I heard on the news this morning about the warnings and the outages. You guys can’t catch a break…Hope things improve…And stay safe out there..

      • TY Angela! We can’t catch a break for sure…. the whole world is suffering this year. Jumble provides a daily moment of normalcy, for that I am grateful!

        • YW..And I know…It’s just all been a nightmare. This year can’t end soon enough….I’m always praying that ‘21 brings us all some peace…Hang in there, Mig.🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Hi all – This one took me a *long* time to solve, because I couldn’t get the last word or the answer. I finally realized the high notes were “treble”, got the answer, and backed into BRONCO which I should have recognized.

    Anyone who had home or car stereos would have seen knobs labeled BASS and TREBLE (and sometimes BALANCE), but maybe with music coming from different devices they’re not so common now.

    Thanks for the song and all the details in the picture, Angela, which I would have missed.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    • Maybe that’s the TREBLE 😉 with innovation…we tend to lose a lot in the translation…Have a good one, Steve…Be well, stay safe…and YVW. 🎺🙋🏻‍♀️
