  1. I love Sunday Jumbles!
    The longer anagrams seem easier to me and the puzzle solutions don’t change….
    Angela will likely have a lot of fun with this one!

  2. Good Morning, Everyone…

    🎶 This is the way I always dreamed it would be…I can HEAR MUSIC, I can HEAR MUSIC…The SOUND of the city Baby, seems to disappear…I can HEAR MUSIC, Sweet sweet MUSIC…Whenever you touch me BABY…Whenever you’re near…🎶 “I Can Hear Music” – The Beach Boys 1969 https://tinyurl.com/4vewr546

    🔈 Amar Bose had a vision, less a TUSSLE but insight,
    (I’m gonna dump MUTTON right here…it’s proven to be PLIGHT)…
    Bose toiled for perfect sound, a REMAKE here or there,
    And now just like a MAGPIE he’s chatting ‘bout his idea
    A group’s decided to ATTEND, to help with Bose’s fate…
    They’ll speak of him in honored tones…His speaker? THAT SOUNDS GREAT! 🔈

    Ok…Show of hands. Who upon first glance at the black and white version of our puzzle, thought you were seeing a ridiculously huge slice of pepperoni pizza? No? Nobody? Only me? Ok then…let’s just move on…

    So, our words. Of course there’s a chance that I’m way off BOSE here, and might just be speaking off the top of my head…but it looks like we may have a first this morning…Six old words, but all six with new anagrams. Doesn’t THAT SOUND GREAT? …Too soon? Sorry…I just couldn’t resist! And a great group of anagrams they are…The stumper? TBT? The Early Birds fared pretty well this morning…I mean I heard a few crazy guesses bouncing off the walls, but for the most part it, I don’t think it could have gone any tweeter for a Sunday puzzle…

    And today, said puzzle brings us to the offices of Mr. Amar Bose. https://tinyurl.com/zbcdbqcu . The year, 1964. Known as an academic, Bose, dissatisfied with a high-end stereo speaker system that he bought in 1956, went on to found his own company, so he could create the sound he was looking for. And even though the name may not resonate with you…chances are pretty good that at one time or another, you’ve heard a Bose speaker. Anyway, lacking capital to get started, he sounded off to a group of investors…you know..”Friends, etc, etc…lend me your ears”…And once they heard what he had to say, and listened to his prototype.. https://tinyurl.com/297hh8rq Well, they were definitely all ears…There was a resounding,”Woof, woof…er, THAT SOUNDS GREAT”! A sound tweeter than wine! …And we can hear from the dialogue that they were definitely attuned to investing…So…the rest is history…which is all recorded above in the link I’ve given you…

    The gems? Amar is wearing a tie bar, which were popular items during the 60’s. And except for that speaker there’s really not much more to speak of. But the mustachioed man in glasses might be Bose’s MIT thesis advisor and professor, Y.W. Lee.

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe…and always remember that it’s worth spending money on good speakers. Trust me, it’s sound advice…And I’ll leave you with something I overheard a man say the other day…”I had my dog, my text-addicted daughter and my mother-in-law in the car yesterday. Maybe I can’t afford an expensive car stereo system, but I still have a woofer, a tweeter and a loud-speaker.” Delusions of band-eur!..🔈🙋🏻‍♀️

    Prayers for Texas 🙏🏻

  3. 🐑 Invited to ATTEND the premier REMAKE of the MAGPIE movie, he was concerned with the dinner afterward…he’d never eaten MUTTON, and while wondering if his stomach would suffer PLIGHT to TUSSLE with it, someone asked if he’d rather have chicken…to which he happily replied…”THAT SOUNDS GREAT”! 🐑

    💇🏻‍♂️ His haircut with its MUTTON chops, to her it was a PLIGHT,
    A TUSSLE-looking MAGPIE nest, he really looked a fright…
    He def needed a REMAKE, to a stylist she’d him send,
    And told him she had had it…and insisted he ATTEND
    So looking in the mirror, then at her, he choose his fate…
    “A stylist, ok I’ll go”…And she said “THAT SOUNDS GREAT”! 💇🏻‍♂️

  4. Hi Everyone – I saw the pizza too, Angela. The words were harder for me than the answer again. I had to back into both Tussle and Magpie. Even with A and E for the blanks, I still had to jumble the letters many times to get Magpie. I don’t think we see the IE ending very often.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. The pizza! 🍕I’m glad I’m not alone! 😂 I couldn’t wait to get my paper, to see what it looked like in color…And luckily, it does look like the pic in the link I included! 😂 That’s a good observation on the “ie”, Caroline. You always have the most perceptive pick-ups on the words. I saw “magpie” as is, so I never thought along your line. But I’m trying to think off the top of my head about “ie” ending words. I think we’ve had 6-letter words with it: Rookie, Cookie, Birdie?…but I’m not positive. I’m going to look. Hope your morning’s going well…and I’ll let you know what I find…🔈🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Hi Caroline. I did find the ones I mentioned: Rookie, Cookie, Birdie. We also had Bookie …and Potpie, a compound word like Magpie…and it was somewhat of a stumper. I think those compound words always cause a bit of a problem. I also found Movie…And it’s funny…there’s a few 5-letter words that immediately came to mind, that I thought we surely had, but I didn’t find them…(although I only did a quick search). But in case David’s reading us today?…He may want to look into that! 5-letter words ending in “ie”…😉Again, Caroline…good insight on the Magpie! 👏🏻👏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Thanks, Angela. Goalie is the one I remember because I struggled with it. I didn’t realize we’ve seen that many.

        • Oh, yes…Goalie! I skipped that one. Tk you. And there probably are more, but I’d really have to dig deeper. And those 5-letter ones have piqued my interest now! 😂 Hope you’re enjoying your day, Caroline. Be well, and stay safe. 🔈🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. My usual problem w the Sunday puzzle,too many words w too many letters for me.Magpie got me,but after glancing at the cartoon solution and seeing “that” as a first word,the complete solution,” that sounds great” popped into my head.Enjoy your Sunday.

    • Good Morning, Professor. They are a good group of anagrams today…I could see where they’d take some extra time. And as for Magpie…it’s a tougher one for sure. Hope you’re keeping warm, Prof. Be well, stay safe and enjoy your day. 🔈🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Good puzzle this morning. I always do the anagrams first before trying to solve the cartoon answer but do glance at the cartoon picture and thought for sure it was a pepperoni pizza so was prepared for a food related solution. At any rate I saw “sounds” and the rest fell into place nicely. Wishing all of you a good Sunday.

    • 🍕🍕 LOL! You did too? 👏🏻👏🏻 I’m curious to see what the the other men say when the WEIGH in…No pun intended…because so far it’s just you, Caroline and I. The Professor was non-committal! 😉 Anyway, since this quarantine? I just seem to think about food a little too much! 😂 So when I saw it, I was like…”Damn, that’s a huge piece of pizza”! And TBT? I ate some…1 o’clock in the morning…and I’m eating pizza…🤦🏻‍♀️ What’s a girl to do??? 😂 Enjoy your day, Betty. Be well and stay safe out there…🍕🔈🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Good afternoon. Going to make this short as I have Family members here. In fact my daughter-in-law solved the cartoon for me. Took a little time but like yesterday when I went back to it the words they flowed rather easy to me. I was having trouble with the cartoon when my family arrived and setting the table for brunch she solved it for me. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  8. Hi all – This took me awhile because of MAGPIE. I saw IMAGE and A PIGMY, but had to back into it with the letters from the answer (which looked like THAT SOUNDS RIGHT, but the letters showed it was GREAT.) Also paused at MAKER, MARKER or MAKE ER before seeing RE as a prefix to REMAKE. Last, the UN trick didn’t work, but the double T’s gave MUTTON.

    At first glance, I thought the cartoon was a giant pepperoni pizza slice.
    (So there’s another vote, Angela! 😂) I also once had a tie-bar! (when I had ties! 😂)

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “After a TUSSLE over the MUTTON casserole at the church picnic that a MAGPIE decided to ATTEND, the only way for the poor cook to resolve the PLIGHT was to REMAKE the whole dish (resisting the urge to make it a MAGPIE casserole.)”

    • Well, at least we know it’s 🍕not a woman thing! 😂 I like the old tie bars…I have a ton of them that were my Fathers, and they’re really beautiful pieces of jewelry. Hope your day’s going well, Steve. Stay safe out there…🔈🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. No tussle and no plight for me today and so I will attend to my chores, eat my mutton and watch a movie remake. That sounds great to me.

    • It sounds like a great day..except for the Mutton! 😉 Yuck! Enjoy your day O…Be well and stay safe. 🔈🙋🏻‍♀️
