  1. Good Morning, Everyone… 🗑 TALKING TRASH 🗑

    🎶 Someone knocked on my door, last night when I was asleep…I thought it was that sweet man of mine, makin’ his ‘fore day creep…Wasn’t nothin’ but my landlord, a great big chump…Stay away from my door, Mr. Landlord, ’cause I’m DOWN IN THE DUMPS…🎶 “Down in the Dumps” – Bessie Smith 1934 https://tinyurl.com/y6dscjoz

    🗑 The pickup truck is piled with trash, and FUSSY there’s no need,
    The Landfill that is near the CREEK…is full…a sign should read…
    “No reason to CONFER today, we just can’t take your stuff,
    Yes it’s news unfulfilling…and we know it’s pretty tough…”
    Instead our guy is standing there…turning traffic away,
    That driver looking quite UNSURE of what card now to play…
    Just turn away…but where to go? Perhaps he’ll try to shmooze…
    And see if there’s a chance to reverse…REFUSE THE REFUSE! 🗑

    As any die-hard Jumble fan knows, this isn’t the first time David’s scent us to the City Landfill. We’ve definitely bin here before…But it is always fun filling in puzzles of this sort, so there won’t be any trash talking here…I’ll just get on with this recycled theme…

    Today: All old words, all new anagrams. And it was only CONFER that caused a bit of discussion. But the solve? No time wasted there…The Early Birds had no trouble at all filling it in…

    So, as I mentioned earlier, here in Jumbleland we’re no strangers to the City Landfill. And once again today, we’re seeing one that’s filled to the grim…So what’s our Environmental Engineers to do? REFUSE THE REFUSE! Literally! And it’s another puzzle in the bag!

    Eye candy? Ok, here’s the deal. The site that I always use to see all those fine little details? It’s still showing yesterday’s puzzle. Rubbish, I say! And you know how I refuse to give you guys information that’s not up to sniff…So I’m just going to mention that there’s dice hanging from the rear-view mirror, and I can pick up on a bicycle tire in the truck…But that’s about it. So as soon as I can get a look at a larger picture, I’ll be back to fill you in…Especially since there’s an opened box in the truck that’s definitely piqued my interest…But in the meantime, I’ll leave you with a bit of trash-related humor…What kind of training does one need to become a garbage collector?…None, you just pick it up as you go along…I know, I know…it stinks!

    Hoping you all enjoy your day. Be well, and stay safe out there…🗑🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. …And today in Jumble Trivia…The puzzle of August 10th, 2010. The question? “What the garbage collectors had to do when their truck was full…And the solve?…REFUSE REFUSE! 🚚🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. 🤷🏻‍♀️ With the FUSSY old biddies telling her she’d be up the CREEK without that proverbial paddle, she began to feel UNSURE of herself, and decided to CONFER with her peers before she’d have to REFUSE the job offer…🤷🏻‍♀️

    🎣 He wasn’t very FUSSY, and he never did get riled,
    To him a day down by the CREEK could always make him smile…
    He’d sit and CONFER with the birds, and all the while he’d fish,
    He never felt UNSURE of things…for little did he wish…
    He’d sit sometimes for hours, as life’s secrets he’d peruse,
    And he always remained amiable…no REFUSE, THE REFUSE 🎣

  4. Good morning. Another solid day. Breezed through the words and the cartoon. First time hearing your song choice Angela. Still have some 78 from my collection days. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Definitely an easy, breezy one…And I have a ton of my Father’s old 78s, too…but I haven’t played them in a while…Have a good one…Be well and stay safe out there…🗑🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. The cartoon answer ,refuse refuse was a given,but confer looked too much like enforce,for me to be able to unscramble it.Guess it’s a Friday,not a Monday puzzle,given the Pandemic, “It is Friday,isn’t it?”

    • Cant go by me, Prof…I swore it’s Thursday…But as far as the puzzle goes…definitely a gift. And Confer? A great scramble…Have a good one, Professor. Be well ad stay safe. 🗑🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Ok, so the puzzle’s up, and I got to take a look. That opened box I spoke of earlier? Nothing to report…I guess we can say it was a waste of time waiting…But one thing I do notice…I’m surprised that the two employees aren’t wearing hard hats and a bit more of protective clothing. Three garbage birds are visible…two in flight…one perched atop one of the piles…IDK…You’d think these guys wouldn’t be so gullible as to what could happen…🦅 🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Had to back into confer. I keep seeing enforce. Cartoon answer was a breeze though so all in all it was a good day. Stay well all.

  8. Hi all – An easy Friday puzzle with the double letter trick for FUSSY and CREEK and the ‘UN’ trick for UNSURE. I tried a couple of variations of FORCE before seeing CONFER, and then the answer was pretty obvious.

    I liked your trashy jokes Angela, and especially “scent us to the landfill” and GULLible.

    Good wishes to everyone.

  9. Like Chuck and Betty I saw ENFORCE, alas too many letters! When looking at the Jumble the words sometimes just jump out at you…….. I admire the construction of this solution and wonder if the second REFUSE is pronounced differently than the first (I think so). On an entirely different subject, how is it our ‘leaders’ can operate so differently from the rules they make for us; I guess the answer is simply they CAN!!!
