  1. Another fun one (Funyon?) with pretty straight forward anagrams but a less than easy solution. The cartoon was cute, as per usual. I think my puzzle solve ability needs to increase! Another CoC day in SoCal but huge Santa Ana winds tonight and through the weekend. The homeless fires already started today and the meteorologist said if it starts tonight or tomorrow it could just take off. Sheesh, what month is it again?

  2. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…💪🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

    💪🏻 They could UPEND a table, if their grip isn’t just right,
    And arm wrestling can be real ROUGH if you’re not holding tight…
    And it can be HIDDEN talent, since you needn’t be built large,
    You can try in a PAGODA, or out upon a barge…
    But it’s not how much you torque the talk, for science now has proven,
    It’s not merely a test of strength that man should be behoovin’….
    The bottom line with arm wrestling, the one who’s left to stand?
    It’s always ‘gonna be the one who HAD THE UPPER HAND! 💪🏻

  3. 💰 When they saw him rush into the backyard PAGODA, and UPEND the potted plants in such a ROUGH manner, they worried about the HIDDEN money, and scrambled to make sure they still HAD THE UPPER HAND…💰

    🏯 The painting that he looked at, a PAGODA near a stream,
    Appealed to him, but it was ROUGH, ‘cause too large did it seem…
    He’d have to UPEND furniture to find a place for it,
    And it was way too pretty to be HIDDEN and not fit…
    At least the choice was up to him…This decorating plan?
    Would need rethinking, so it’s good he HAD THE UPPER HAND! 🏯

  4. Anagrams were an ego booster today as was the puzzle. It brought to mind watching the world arm wrestling championships in Petaluma, Calif. that started in Gilardi’s saloon back in 1952. Wondering if Mike will break out a quiz regarding rules/famous matches. I am ready for it.

  5. Good morning. Today’s jumble was a pleasure to do. It was challenging and clever. The two five letter words were the hardest for me. Once that was accomplished I was slowed by the cartoon answer. But then the switch clicked and I finally got the answer. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  6. Anagrams starting w a vowel like upend,always offer a challenge,but having gotten that anagram solved,the rest popped into mind,as did the cartoon solution,which was pretty much a blind solve.

  7. Hi all – Pretty much an instant solve today with a slight pause at ROUGH after first seeing GROUCH. The “UP” showed UPEND, and the double letter trick showed HIDDEN quickly. The answer was obvious.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “While practicing his golf shots in Golden Gate Park, he had to UPEND half the sod before finding his ball HIDDEN in the ROUGH beside the PAGODA in the Japanese Tea Garden.”

  8. The geisha had to upend every table at the base of the pagoda in order to find her ring which was hidden in the rough.
