  1. It’s refreshing to see this couple actually enjoying the moment with the kids as opposed to rushing off to attend to some other aspect of the party that’s just out of view. Judging by the age of the children, I think it’s safe to say that this probably isn’t mom and dads first rodeo. Piñatas and other “kid games” stop becoming cool at around age 12. I sure hope they’ve designated someone on the sidelines to record it because they’ll start referring to it as baby stuff in just a few short years.

    No new clue words today, but both of the 6 letter anagrams were. NUHOD, or HOUND, was the only one to give me a few seconds of pause. After all of the words were solved, I just happened to notice that the anagrams were in reverse alphabetical order.

    That unicorn piñata didn’t stand a chance! I like how Jeff drew her tongue sticking out of to show how determined she was to connect with it. I counted 16 pieces of candy dropping from the broken piñata. There was another piece that may have been number 17, but I think it was actually a bit of debris. Everyone is dressed in warm weather clothing. Either the event is being held in late spring or summer, or they’re holding it somewhere where cold weather isn’t an issue.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 7 letters. The length of the anagram was its downfall, and I had no trouble plucking the two short words out of it. They all can’t be stumpers, folks. Have a magnificent Monday, and keep Jumbling!

  3. Good Monday morning. With the pandemic you seem to forget what day it is at times but with jumble you almost always know when Monday comes around. Today was no exception. It was easy breezy from the words to the cartoon answer. With that said, be safe and take care.

  4. Definitely a Monday puzzle.It was a blind solve for me relative to the cartoon solution,but I had to work backwards to get the ‘t’ I needed for the cartoon solution.NY Jets somehow beat my Browns,putting their playoff hopes on edge, in jeapordy.Must still be 2020.

    • Good morning again. Chuck, I have only been to one football game in my life. I think it was 1951 when my much older and drop dead gorgeous cousin was dating Eddie Sharkey on the Cleveland Browns. They took my sister one week then me the next to see them play the Washington Senators and Philadelphia Eagles. I forget which one I saw but we were told they weren’t going to win. We had tickets on the 50 yard line. Froze our buts off. Knowing they were going to lose and freezing cold I never got into football. My cousin and I were waiting outside the stadium where the players come out and when he did he wasn’t rushed for autographs until I yelled out his name. We had a laugh afterwards because he signed about a dozen autographs. Take care.

    • Losing all those receivers to the Covid list didn’t help any, Chuck, and you *knew* the Jets would win just enough to miss out on first pick in the draft.
      Have faith – it’s been a lot of fun this year seeing the Browns do so well after so many disappointing seasons.

  5. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…🪅🙋🏻‍♀️

    🪅 Piñatas now so popular, the choices quite a range,
    You can pick up a HOUND dog or allow your mind to CHANGE
    One mustn’t think it takes a lot, and thoughts of mess not HINDER
    Deciding to get one for kids…they’re not made up of cinder…
    Your ENTRY into getting one…quite simple and they fit
    The theme of any party…and they’re always a HUGE HIT! 🪅

  6. 🐕‍🦺 Even though he was a HUGE HIT with the condo board, he realized that keeping the HOUND might HINDER his chances of ENTRY, so he decided to CHANGE plans….🐕‍🦺

    🤷🏻‍♂️ The family would HOUND him, he knew it for a fact,
    If he accepted ENTRY there and aligned with a pact…
    He knew that it would HINDER him, but how he wanted in,
    The family though…adamant…so where does he begin?
    Just go ahead and enter…bite the bullet, show his grit?
    Or CHANGE for them and watch his career suffer this HUGE HIT? 🤷🏻‍♂️

  7. Hi all – Easy Monday. Seeing all the little candies spill out reminded me of Christmas Crackers.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “They had to CHANGE the pet door to a chip-ENTRY type to HINDER the HOUND next door from coming in and eating all their cats’ food.”

  8. Breezed right through the anagrams and cartoon answer this morning. As always, enjoyed your fun facts, Mike. My daughter’s birthday is September 8th so I missed the most popular date by one day. I remember thinking it would be very appropriate if I went into labor on Labor Day. However that did not occur. Do you think all that cold weather in December accounts for the prevalence of September birthdays?? Happy Monday to all.

  9. If today’s jumble were a fire breathing monster it would be a SNAP dragon…………… Sometimes a Jumble tells you what day of the week it is and this must be Monday. Pinatas for the Jets operate differently–when you bust them open they spit out the first round pick…. Here’s to a good day–we got rain and snow!

  10. No surprise here… it’s Monday! It reminds me of a party where there was a piñata. This little boy, blind folded, took a HUGE swing, missed the piñata and Hit a lamp and the light exploded!!! I still see the boy’s reaction and ours!!!!
    3 days left in this awful year. No one will ever forget 2020!!!
