  1. Happy Wednesday everyone! Now that’s a stinky pun. It wasn’t overly challenging, but it was definitely clever and witty. I think the guys decided to stagger the difficulty level of the puzzles this week. This one gave me a Monday morning kind of vibe.

    No new clue words today, and three of the four clue words are coming up as repeats. BONNET is the only one that we’ve definitely had the pleasure of seeing before. I’m sure David scrambled them the best he could, but I was able to gait them all fairly quickly. No real sole-searching required.

    The sprain event was a cartoon depicting a doctor/patient consultation. The cast on his leg lets us know that he’s no stranger to this exam room. I had a feeling as to where this one was going when I saw the the good doctor scribbling away on the x-ray. I didn’t see any stress or fracture lines so it looks like his foot has heeled quite nicely.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 9-letters. 5 of them were consonants and 4 were vowels. The layout was quite cryptic even though it was O-verflowing with a particular vowel. I had no trouble connecting the trots to find FOOT and the rest was pretty much a given. Have a wonderful Wednesday, and keep Jumbling!

  3. Here are 10 Fun Facts about FEET!

    10. The human body is made up of 206 bones and 52 of them are found in your feet (26 in each foot).
    9. It takes 12-18 months for a toenail to completely regrow.
    8. The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which add up to 115,000 miles in a lifetime – more than 4 times the circumference of the globe.
    7. Standing in one spot is far more tiring than walking because the demands are being made on the same few muscles for a longer length of time.
    6. 75% of Americans will experience foot problems at one time or another in their lives.
    5. In the United States, the best-selling shoe size is 8.5 for women and 10.5 for men. They are both up a full size from 30 years ago.
    4. Morton’s Toe is the name given to the condition where the second toe is longer than the big toe. It affects 20 to 30% of the worlds population.
    3. The Achilles tendon is the strongest tendon in the human body.
    2. 1 in 1,000 babies are born with an extra toe or finger. The condition is called polydactyly.
    1. There are approximately 250,000 sweat glands in a pair of feet, and they excrete as much as half a pint of moisture each day!

    • That Achilles. People tear it and and never really know if it’s gonna heel! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Good Morning, Everyone. 🦶🏻PUTTING YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD 🦶🏻

    🎶 Everybody get on your feet…You make me nervous when you’re in your seat….Take off your shoes and pat your feet…We’re doing a dance that can’t be beat……We’re BAREFOOTIN’ ‘…Barefootin’…Barefootin’….We’re BAREFOOTIN’…🎶 “Barefootin’” – Robert Parker 1966 https://tinyurl.com/yyffszzh

    🦶🏻Our man sits with a cast on, he’s looking kind of grim,
    He’s worried that the doctor’s holding back from telling him…
    That maybe he sees something, after he did a full SCOUR,
    Of that X-ray that he’s looking at…for what seems like an hour…
    So TEMPO, tempo, he sits there…the EFFECT taking a toll,
    Perhaps his foot’s not healing well, perhaps there is a swole?
    A bee’s now in his BONNET…’cause he can’t see what’s been wrote…
    As the Dr. seems so intent scribbling all of those FOOTNOTES!..🦶🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. 📓 After she had spent the morning on the project… (SCOUR through this, research that), and made a ton of FOOTNOTES, it had an EFFECT on her nerves, so she decided to reward herself with a new BONNET…which definitely upped her TEMPO…📓

    🧽 He did his best to SCOUR the walk, a TEMPO pace he’d built,
    The EFFECT from that last storm had left so much grime and silt…
    He took off his old BONNET…(keep in mind the man’s a Brit)
    And tired now, he made some tea, and figured he’d just sit…
    The cleaning product, he thought now, might work well on his boat,
    So he grabbed paper and pencil and began jotting FOOTNOTES!🧽

  6. Good morning.There was no barefootin through today’s jumble. Another one that I breezed through and had a blind solve on the cartoon answer. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  7. Sleep or lack thereof may be affecting my Jumble prowess ,as Mon nite I didn’t have much sleep and couldn’t solve yesterday’s puzzle ,then last nite,I slept right through,8+ hours straight,and solved the Wed puzzle in a snap.Even footnotes w all those o’s.

  8. Jotting down things PLUS podiatrist = FOOTNOTES. No sweat except that on the bottom of the feet. One of the smartest people I know is a podiatrist. Have a great hump day y’all!

  9. No tiptoeing this morning…
    Podiatrist =foot. In a blink of an eye, I guest FOOTNOTES. Checked to see if all the letters could be found in the anagrams and then I solved the anagrams. The only jumble that gave me a problem was NOTBEN and since I needed the letters O,N and T… it was game over!
    If life could be that easy!!!!

  10. I put my best foot forward and solved the Jumble in record time today. Happy Wednesday to all.

  11. Hi all – BONNET took me the longest, and then the answer was instant.

    I hadn’t noticed before, but the picture seems to confirm that Jumble-land people only have four digits on their feet as well as their hands.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “When scoring the new film version, he had to SCOUR his music software’s instructions to find a TEMPO to produce just the right EFFECT upon viewing the woman’s BONNET in “Easter Parade.”
