  1. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…

    🎶 We’ve all got a tale to tell …Times were not always so well . But putting it all aside, we made it through by and by …It’s WARM AND TOASTY in here…Share our laughter, sometimes tears …You’ll be welcomed with a cup of tea, and a biscuit, maybe two or three..🎶 “Warm and Toasty” – Marina Florence 2020 https://tinyurl.com/y6sm3ouj

    🍞 After a night under a CANOPY of beautiful stars…
    We find our Jumble foursome having breakfast – camping czars
    Maybe later, as nightfall comes someone may STRUM a tune,
    Like winning an AWARD, they’ll happily stare at the moon…
    The WRITER of this puzzle, he’s well known to love outdoors
    A setting such as this would please him, that I feel assured
    To sit around a campfire, just loafing as they ”roasty”…
    There’s coffee, bread and morning sun…and they’re all WARM AND TOASTY 🍞

    After mentioning David in my rhyme, I wondered if all of our readers are familiar with who I meant. The writer of the Jumble, David L Hoyt, is indeed a lover of the outdoors. He hikes, he swims, he golfs, he takes long nature walks with his beautiful wife, Claire, and his trusty sidekick, Miss Daisy Dog. So just in case any of you weren’t aware, you’ve now been introduced to the Man Who Puzzles America..and the World… https://tinyurl.com/yy2ffj2e…Ok, let’s get those FIRES burning, and get down to the business at hand…

    Another day, Folks, without any new words. Could it be we’ve come to the end of that list David told us about a while ago in one of his videos to us? Hmm…I dread to speak the WORDS…But regardless, it’s four old favorites today, with only one anagram showing up as such. SMURT, leaping up at us from February 28th, 2018. https://tinyurl.com/yybkfom7 And just as ENACT was yesterday, it’s been BURNT into our minds before…and before that…and before that…Another one of those words that takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’…TIMEless, so to speak! And this morning it was CANOPY that two of the Early Birds didn’t disCOVER immediately. It HUNG in the air for a while…But the solve? They all got that in a HOT minute…

    Ah, the outdoors. Mosquitoes, bears, cold, dampness…lack of plumbing…oh, wait. Sorry, that’s another cartoon altogether. Today, we see a serene, bucolic scene…And two couples making TOAST. Now I’m sure you all picked up on the TOAST clues in our dialogue and our question…right? “Slices of bread”, “heated up“, “comfort food”, “this feels good”, “perfectly golden brown”? I mean David and Jeff have definitely BUTTERED us up for this one…And needing a six-letter word, once you pulled TOAST-Y out of the FIRE, and chose AND for our three-letter entry? You were definitely getting WARM-er! And there it is! They’re as WARM as TOAST…https://tinyurl.com/y27hbhb3 And nothing bEATS being WARM AND TOASTY on a camping trip! Looks like David’s COOKED up another good one!

    Eye candy? The woman at left has just poured a steaming mug of coffee, and it’s the men that are toasting up the bread in those Coleman camp cooker baskets. The man standing is wearing a red sweatshirt with a kangaroo pocket, (I love those pockets), and the one seated has a “W” type logo on his cap that I can’t identify. It seems familiar, but I can’t put my finger on it…so If anyone out there does, please let me know. And on the little table at left, is a tub of butter with a spreader, and the money shot of this cartoon. If you look closely, you can see that Jeff’s given us that adorable little Bear https://tinyurl.com/y3cwzexl that’s become synonymous with Honey, and he stands there, cap opened, at the ready. Now how sweet is that?

    So, There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and I’m off to have some toast myself…I try to have some every day…Seems if I don’t, I tend to get grumpy…I guess you can say I’m just “Lack-TOAST intolerant”!…And here’s a TOAST to BUTTER days for us all! 🍞🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. And Out of the Archives…Today in JUMBLE TRIVIA...The puzzle of March 19th, 2016: “When they heated slices of bread on the campfire, they were”…And the solve?…WARM AND TOASTY! …And as Yogi would say…”It’s déjà vu all over again”! 🍞🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. 🎸 Hearing the STRUM of a guitar, she glanced out her window, and felt as if she’d won an AWARD…since there, under her CANOPY, stood the WRITER she had met…and the entire scenario made her feel WARM AND TOASTY…🎸

    💽 He hoped that he’d win an AWARD, for the song that he wrote,
    The ballad WRITER happy, with guitar STRUM, note by note…
    He stood beneath the CANOPY as camera bulbs did pop,
    And prayed he’d be a winner…not go home with loss – a flop
    The crowds were quite receptive, what he heard were loud cheers mostly..
    And he was nervous, yes, but pleased…and feeling WARM AND TOASTY 💽

  4. Good morning. I was feeling pretty good until I read the highlighted two lines from Angie and started to get queasy. But thank goodness it passed quickly when I listened to her song choice. Another first on hearing it. I had no problem with the words or cartoon answer. It’s been a darn good week. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  5. Good morning again. Thanks Angie for the reason why they were doing the toast. I would never have known. It was clever of the boys. But now when we were kids we would be roasting “mickeys” In case there are those that have no idea what a Mickey is, it’s a potato. You put it in the fire and when it burns out you have a delicious treat. Lol.

    • Paul..you always manage to keep me smiling! 😘 And a while ago, while we were doing s’mores on the fire pit I have out back, I showed the kids how do to a Mickey. Personally, I don’t think I’ve ever met a potato I didn’t like! 😉 🥔🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Wait a minute! Wait a minute! …You mean you didn’t enjoy my “BREADER PERSON” comment? C’mon, Brooklyn! LOL 😂😂…Well I’m glad you at least liked the song! 😉 And yes, it has been an easy, breezy week. As always, thanks for the laugh, Paul…and stay well and safe out there…🍞🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. A Saturday puzzle in level of difficulty,with writer giving me a moment to pause before solving it.Similarly with the cartoon solution,’and’ was a given for the 3 letter word,and toasty came to mind, with the campers toasting their bread over the fire.As far as camping and cooking over an open fire,just as with never having gone fishing,I’ve also never gone camping,though I have barbecued in the back yard,if that counts.

    • Never been camping? It’s an acquired taste…😉..and a lot depends on making sure you go with the right people. Nothing like being out in the middle of nowhere…and realizing you’ve brought the wrong people along! 😉 And sure…backyard BBQ counts! Have a good one, Prof. Be well and stay safe out there…🍞🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. No problem with the words or cartoon answer today even though I too am not a camper. My husband used to say my idea of roughing it is a Hilton with astro turf. I have never heard of a mickey so I learned something new today do admit that I like potatoes so that one sounds good to me, Paul. Wishing all of you a good Saturday.

    • Good Morning, Betty. I’m with your husband! 👏🏻👏🏻 But Camping’s come a long way. Now it’s called “Glamping” https://tinyurl.com/y45bv872…and I think you’d enjoy it a whole lot more! I’ve done both…and there’s just something about that indoor plumbing 🚽🧻 that grabs me! 😂😂! As for the Mickeys…I started frying up a bunch of potatoes after talking about them…🤷🏻‍♀️ I just love potatoes! Wishing you a good Saturday too, Betty. Be well…and stay safe out there..🍞🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Hi all – I paused at all of the last three words, with CANOPY taking the longest. The answer was given by the campers heating up the bread. When neither TOAST or TOASTED fit, it showed that TOASTY was correct.

    I’ve heard of slipping someone a Mickey in Brooklyn Paul, but it didn’t have anything to do with potatoes! 😂

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “I wonder whether John Denver, WRITER of ‘Rocky Mountain High’, knew he was about to create an AWARD-winning song as he began to STRUM and sing about watching a meteor shower blaze through a CANOPY of stars.”

  10. Another easy “Monday”. When I was 4-5, 1944-5, my father was a gold mine manager in northern Quebec province and we had a wooden stove and no running water. I can still smell the bread toasting on the stove in the morning. Life was very different then! Waking up to the crackling of the wood burning in the stove… what souvenirs!!!

    • Daisy probably saw a squirrel…I can tell from the look of disdain on her face! 😉 Thanks for thinking of us David. It’s always a pleasure to see you. Be well and stay safe out there…🐕‍🦺🙋🏻‍♀️
