  1. Good Morning, Everyone. 🌲 A SITE FOR SURE BUYS 🌲

    🎶 Got your highest sneakers on….It’s slippin’ new…Got your highest sneakers on and you’re slippin’ new….You’re more than alright…You know you’re out of SIGHT…🎶 “Out of Sight” – James Brown 1964 https://tinyurl.com/yynbxv7r

    🌲You SCOUT around for property, you’d hate to be INEPT,
    And later find REGRET slowly into your thoughts has crept
    But looking at these lots, they find the whole area so freeing…
    The ENSIGN and his wife are pleased…happy to be “SITE-SEEING”! 🌲

    So…”SITE-SEEING” vs Sightseeing. That is the question. Or is it? There’s a webSITE that I’ve used to help some of the kids that I’ve mentored BUILD their writing skills…And it rang a bell this morning…so I looked. And sure enough, there it was. And I thought you might enjoy it… https://tinyurl.com/y6qpcevz

    Our words today are not new, but three of our anagrams are coming up as such. The only one we’ve seen before is CUTOS, going way back to February 7th, 2011. And it was only ENSIGN that flagged out as the tiniest bit of a problem for two of the Early Birds. And TBT? Ensign wasn’t all that easy to work into my rhyme either. So the guy in our cartoon? I made him an Ensign. Because as far as my rhyme goes? It was the only way I could get that ship to sail…

    Our cartoon today is pretty WIDE OPEN. One of those. what you SEE is what you LET…I mean get. We see a couple, looking through the mountainous landscape of an upcoming development, for the ideal spot to build their future home. And Jeff’s given us three lots, one with a slight difference in its acreage. Besides that, their car, and a few fir trees…well, it’s pretty BARREN. But they’re enjoying the views, and if you look closely you can see the image of what they’re SEEING reflected on the man’s phone. It’s a serene scene…

    So…There you have it Folks, Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and here’s 🍷to BUILDING a better future for us all…🌲🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. …And Out of the Archives: Today in JUMBLE TRIVIA:

    1 – The puzzle of April 30th, 2014: The question: “When they looked for a place to build their new home, they were”…And the solve? “SITE”-SEEING

    2- The puzzle of February 07th, 2015: The question: “When she browsed the internet, she was”…And the solve? “SITE”-SEEING

  3. 🛳 The ENSIGN, assigned to SCOUT out a campsite, to everyones REGRET proved to be INEPT, since he spent the entire time SIGHTSEEING. 🛳

    🤷🏻‍♂️ He signed up to be a Boy SCOUT, a promise that he kept,
    His parents wanted him to join, though he felt quite INEPT…
    His Dad had been an ENSIGN, his Mom she had served too,
    So naturally they felt that it was something he’d pursue
    He knew that he’d REGRET it though, and soon he def was fleeing…
    He’d rather spend his time alone…and just go off SIGHTSEEING! 🤷🏻‍♂️

  4. Good morning. My choice for hardest word was ENSIGN, and me being in the Navy. It took me about 5 minutes to finally get it. The only reason why it took me so long is that ranking officers always made me uncomfortable. Maybe that was why I drew a blank. The cartoon answer was a breeze once I looked at the letters. First time hearing that song and seeing the record label. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. You always manage to make me smile! Ranking officers! Enjoy your day, Paul. Wishing you well and safety too. 🌲🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. Hi Everyone –
    The anagrams went well, though I wasn’t sure of Ensign’s meaning and checked to see if it was correct. The answer took me a long time. I was looking for a word or expression with a meaning like impressed. Finally, I found Site by writing down possible 4-letter words.
    I agree with your thought for the future, Angela. 🍷

    • Here’s hoping, Caroline 🍷🙏🏻. Have a good one. Be well and stay safe. 🌲🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. I also checked on the spelling of ensign,but otherwise the anagrams,and even the cartoon solution,”site” seeing were all surprisingly easy for a Friday,even more so w “site” in quotes,as cartoon solutions in quotes usually give me trouble.Virtually a blind solve for a Friday morning.

    • Good Morning, Professor. I thought it an easy one too. Hope your day goes well…and stay safe out there. 🌲🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. No problem with the anagrams and using “ing” first made the rest of the cartoon answer fall into place. Wishing all of you a good day.

    • Good Morning, Betty. I think a few people went with the ING to start. Good move…Wishing you a good day too. Be well and stay safe…🌲🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Hi all – I suspect I’m not alone in trying ING in the third word, but then saw ENSIGN pretty quickly. I figured SITE would be in the answer, but had to write the letters to get the whole phrase.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The Commodore soon came to REGRET his decision to assign the INEPT ENSIGN to SCOUT out the battle site, since he spent most of his time merely SITE SEEING.” Any more sets of words like these, and I guess I’ll just cut and paste your sentences, Angela! 😂

  9. Just heard that Tommy Lasorda passed away. Definitely one of the good ones. RIP, Tommy. 🙏🏻⚾️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Even this Giants fan is sorry to hear that. He always had a lot of fun with the rivalry, playing it up in a good-natured way, and of course so obviously bled Dodger Blue.

      • Joe Lago, The Athletic Los Angeles:
        Growing up in the Bay Area, you are taught the idea of “Beat! L! A!” at a very young age. It’s not officially part of any school curriculum, but the tenet is sown deep in the minds of adolescents, particularly if you got to go to Candlestick Park to watch the Giants play the most hated of Los Angeles sports teams, the Dodgers.
        And no Dodger loved the rivalry more than Tommy Lasorda.
        The Dodgers got booed as soon as they stepped on the field, and the long walk from the right-field entrance to the visitor’s dugout made them a target for taunts. Lasorda loved it. Hollywood could not have cast anyone better to play the foil of Candlestick. He would let the jeers wash over him and mockingly blow kisses to the crowd. Baseball was meant to be fun, and Lasorda never lost sight of that — even when he was San Francisco’s Public Enemy No. 1.
        Before the ’Stick closed in 1999, three years after he retired as Dodgers manager, Lasorda made the trip to the Bay for the final Dodgers-Giants series and one last chance to be booed mercilessly and ceremonially. Lasorda addressed the crowd, thanking the locals for “the wonderful reception” and adding that it was “great to know I have so many friends.” But, of course, this peace was temporary. Lasorda launched one last salvo.
        “I feel this in my heart,” he told the crowd. “You hate yourselves because you love me.”

        PS – The jacket he wore that day had his name misspelled “Lasodra” 😂


  10. Just learned about Lasorda while reading this group, very sad…. Tommy’s heart was on his sleeve and he bled Dodger Blue.
    Anagrams were quite doable today. INEPT is s great Jumble word imo. I couldn’t solve the puzzle but think it is a clever answer!
    The weather is awesome in SoCal and only one brush fire going on now, as far as I know……

    • He had a good long run, both on and off the field…Have a good one, Mig. Be well and stay safe. 🌲🙋🏻‍♀️
