  1. Happy Thursday everyone. I guess “time heals all wounds” doesn’t apply when it comes to whatever it is that Marv has done. The fact that he had the gall to bring it up — while dining with another couple — is probably what has her peeved the most. I really hope they have a comfy couch at home because a certain someone won’t be sleeping in the big bed anytime soon. Congratulations Marv, you’ve earned it!

    All of the anagrams were brand spanking new this morning. The solutions, however, have all been used in the past. JUDGE surprised me as being the oldest of the quartet as I could’ve sworn we’ve seen it more recently. None of them really stumped me, but I did need a few extra looks to come up with MODULE.

    It’s hard to tell what kind of restaurant these folks have decided to dine at by looking at the decor of the room. The plants in the background gave me a Hawaiian or Polynesian sort of vibe. Apparently the cuisine pairs well with wine because there’s a big ol’ bottle of red in the middle of the table! The truth serum had the Jumble “J” logo on the label, and just underneath it is written “Red Blend ‘54.” For those unaware, 1954 was the year Martin Naydel created the Scramble, and it wouldn’t be called Jumble until a few years later. Speaking of dates, yesterday was Jumble Jeff’s 13th anniversary of drawing the Jumble cartoon. Happy anniversary, Jeff!!! And to think it all started with a bald boxer on a soccer field. Here’s to many, many more wonderful years!

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 13 letters. Four were vowels and nine were consonants. I’d be suspect of anyone who voted that the solve didn’t give them any trouble! I reckon even Paul Lockwood, who is the current Jumble World Champion, would need at least a minute to crack it! The way I got it was by separating the vowels and consonants in the margin of my paper. After reading the cartoon sentence a few times, SUBJECT finally came to mind. The funny part, “MAD-HER”, was surprisingly easy to spot with the majority of the letters crossed out. Definitely a frustrating, but ultimately successful solve. Have a terrific Thursday, and keep Jumbling!

    • Good Afternoon, Mike….I’ve been chompin’ at the bit ever since I saw the puzzle last nite. But I wrote a separate rhyme this morning so as not to “spill the wine” by describing the bottle before you posted. It definitely is a gem! But now that you’ve done so, this is what I was thinking about the SUBJECT MATTER!


      I wondered why his lips were loose, not sure if that’s his glass,
      Maybe if the wine was the cause perhaps he’d get a pass…
      But if the night is dry for him, what will his excuse be?
      He’s upset the whole table…ruined the dinner, as we see…
      The solution though a piece of cake…too bad Marv’s such a boor…
      And the bottle reads Jumble Red Blend…from 1954…

      I did find it odd that there were only three glasses on the table. So it’s either Marv or his wife who aren’t imbibing. But is he a lefty, and it’s his…or does it belong to his wife? Or is it just a RED Herring? 😉 Here’s to a good one!🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

      • And I thought Jeff was making a religious reference yesterday when I noticed the palm-palm (Psalm)! I even went so far as to try and link the number of books, as well as the number of fingers shown on each hand, to a particular one without any luck. 🙂👋🏻

        • Personally, Frond…I didn’t read anything into that tiny little palm…maybe when it grows up, then we’ll tree…But I will hand it to Jeff for giving the office a little decor…🌴🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. JUDGE = Last used on 06/06/17 as GUEJD
    BERTH = Last used on 02/18/19 as RHEBT
    MODULE = Last used on 02/02/20 as DOLEUM
    CACTUS = Last used on 10/29/20 as CCSUTA


    Final Thought:
    Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder. —Rumi

  3. Got the anagrams with an assist from my wife. No chance on the solution.
    Got 2nd moderna vaccine today and the process was much better than the first time.
    Guess I am good for lunch now!

  4. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

    🎶 There’s just a hint of indifference in her lack of conversation when we talk. …And the SUBJECT MATTERS change…There’s no mention of our future now at all…She still kisses me each morning, but it seems more like a habit than before…I know she still loves me, but I don’t think she likes me anymore….🎶 “I Know She Still Loves Me” – George Strait 1995 https://tinyurl.com/354h5jj5

    🍷 We know that words can definitely hurt, like CACTUS they can sting,
    A human’s not a MODULE, so conversation brings…
    The good and bad to the forefront, but sometimes it can’t hurt
    To let a sleeping dog just lie…and give it a wide BERTH…
    But Marv here just took caution, and he threw it to the wind…
    He’s opened up a door that he’s not able to rescind
    One can’t help JUDGE his foolishness…her anger he did spur…
    He should have bit his tongue avoiding this SUBJECT “MAD HER”! 🍷

  5. Good morning. Got the words failed on the cartoon answer again. Loved the song choice Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe

  6. 🙊After anchoring their boat in its BERTH, the couple glanced over at the one next to them, and couldn’t help but notice that there were a ton of little CACTUS plants piled high on a shelved MODULE, and when the woman made a comment, her husband quickly changed the SUBJECT MATTER, not wanting to JUDGE…🙊

    🌵The JUDGE studied the MODULE, but things were looking grim,
    The form of it was all askew, CACTUS-shape came to him…
    Defendant said a wide BERTH was what he was allowed,
    But this thing he created definitely raised a brow…
    The company now suing him…said no way did it flatter
    The product they envisioned…it defied all SUBJECT MATTER…🌵

  7. No problem with the anagrams this morning. You know how I love those quotation marks. Got the cartoon answer without difficulty. Off to a good start this morning. Wishing all of you a good Thursday.

    • Hi Betty…It looks like we’re sharing the bottle alone on this one! 😉 I uncorked it without any trouble either…and it’s a gem, in my opinion. Wishing you a good Thursday too…Be well and stay safe out there…🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Anagrams were a lot easier than the cartoon solution.Subject was a given for the first word,but the rest of the solution,in quotes,no less ,stumped me.

  9. Hi all – I know we’ve seen the last two words before, but they both took me some time to unscramble. Then I suspected that SUBJECT would be the second answer word, but since it only fit in the first slot, the remaining letters showed the solution.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Thanks for pointing out the details and significance of the wine bottle Mike and Angela! The “time heals all wounds” reference reminded me of the other saying “Time wounds all heels.”

    “The Space Station astronauts would soon JUDGE it wise to give a wide BERTH to the science MODULE full of CACTUS plants.”

    • You’re welcome, Steve. A similar bottle was shown on 2/22/20, but “Red Blend” was written as an anagram. Zooming in on today’s, the loop of the ‘R’ appeared to be a heart…. Pretty cool!

    • YW, Steve…and if you’d like to revisit the scene of the wine…😉 for you!

      …But also look real closely at the shirt worn by today’s slightly whiny uncomfortable male diner…He’s sporting the signature Jumble J Logo. This is definitely a Grapes of Hath puzzle! 😂 Here’s to a good one, Steve.🍷🙋🏻‍♀️
