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

    🎶 There you are with nowhere left to hide…All the toys of childhood put aside…You think you need them…But that’s the price of freedom…That’s the cost of living in the PRIME OF YOUR LIFE…🎶 “The Prime of Your Life” – Billy Joel 1981 https://tinyurl.com/3sf86y7k

    📚 Mr Geisel got an INVITE, and he took it most DEVOUT,
    So in much an UPBEAT manner he’s in school to read about
    The new book that he’s written…where an odd Cat is the star,
    And there’s a fish not out to SMOOCH, his wish the cat to bar…
    The fish’s feelings FRUGAL, ‘cause the Cat is SHIFTY, see
    Fish thinks a home with kids alone is not where Cat should be…
    But the story was a huge success, despite the bit of strife…
    As Dr Seuss went on to show…in the “P-RHYME” OF HIS LIFE! 📚

    Dr Seuss. https://tinyurl.com/c9a4zbvs If you’ve raised kids, you know Dr Seuss. If you haven’t raised kids…you most likely still know Dr Seuss! His books have been around for what seems like forever, and the rhymes within his colorfully illustrated pages have kept kids laughing the whole time. And today, he graces our page…

    Our words…While we’ve seen them all before, each of them more than once, we do have some great anagrams today, two of which we’ve also seen before. VINTIE, was read by Jumble players back on March 24th, 2014, while GRAULF turns the pages even further back, to February 19th, 2009. And despite being DEVOUT players of this Scrambled Word Game, it was just that, DEVOUT, that preyed upon the minds of two of the Early Birds this morning. But aside from that? Close the book…it was a great ending…

    So, Dr Seuss. Set in late 1957, we see the star of today’s puzzle, visiting what’s most likely a Kindergarten class. Having just published “The Cat in the Hat”, https://tinyurl.com/e7rt7rf8 , he took time out from his busy schedule, much to the appreciative surprise of the teacher, to sit with a group of children and share with them his RHYMES. And the happy, smiling faces of the children prove it’s a success! Because in answer to our question…His unique style of verse brought that success to him in the…”P-RHYME” OF HIS LIFE! https://tinyurl.com/swt9ak25 You gotta love it…we must agree…David’s shared another winner…with the Jumble Family!

    And…the last chapter of our puzzle today…Jeff’s Gems in our cartoon. I suppose the man standing smiling, alongside the teacher is the school Principal. And the rhyme that the little girl has made is a whimsical touch. But the bookmark..I mean the benchmark of the cartoon is what’s showing within the book. It’s opened to the pages where Sally and her brother sit looking out at the rain, with Fish in his bowl nearby, as the Cat In The Hat steps in on the mat… https://tinyurl.com/3pr3ky3h And the details are excellent…

    So, There you have it, Folks…Done! Have a good one…Be well, stay safe…and of all the copious words of wisdom Dr Seuss has left us, I’m going to leave you with one of my favorite rhymes…one I’ve been saying to the kids in my family for years…”You can find magic wherever you look…Sit back and relax…all you need is a book”! 📚🙋🏻‍♀️

    FYI: While I’ve no intention of rehashing what’s been in the news this past week, I’d be amiss to not mention the Elephant in the room…and no, I don’t mean Horton. https://tinyurl.com/e6ckevfc .So while the controversy over certain Dr Seuss books is going on out there…I’m not bringing it here…I feel this just isn’t the place to read about it.

    Prayers for our readers in the paths of these multiple storms. 🙏🏻

  2. 🤷🏻‍♂️ The British man, having led what he considered a FRUGAL life, but described by others as being of DEVOUT and SHIFTY cheapness, wasn’t sure why he received an INVITE to his neighbors house…since he wasn’t one to enjoy UPBEAT music, or to SMOOCH to it…but figuring he was in the PRIME OF HIS LIFE, he decided to go…🤷🏻‍♂️

    🤷🏻‍♀️ They told her he was SHIFTY, and he hardly lived DEVOUT,
    And were worried ‘bout the INVITE…hoping that she’d not go out
    With a man known to be FRUGAL where emotions were in play
    Whereas she was such an UPBEAT girl…Compatible? No way…
    So they told her if she did decide to give the guy a shot,
    Be wary of his actions, and a SMOOCH? She’d better not…
    Most likely he was out to dupe some girl to be his wife…
    But rest assured she’d never share…in the PRIME OF HIS LIFE…🤷🏻‍♀️

  3. Not my best night. I got most of the anagrams but passed out on the J solution. Not surprised after a very easy week. It will be interesting to see the game on Monday. Mike should be back and giving us insight!!!

  4. ⏰ DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME begins in just about a half hour here in NY…Here’s hoping everyone remembered to turn their clocks forward…We’re losing some sleep…but how great is it to have that extra hour of daylight at night…⏰ 🙋🏻‍♀️

    • I turned my clock back an hour and enjoyed more sleep. IM retired and really don’t need to know what time it is within a couple of hours or so…..

  5. Quite a coincidence – the Dr. Seuss puzzle and the controversy. Tough one today. I struggled with Upbeat until I tried UP and needed the answer before I was able to see Frugal. I thought “of his” would fit the answer, which helped me find the rest. Wishing all a good day.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. I had some playing around with Frugal too, to get it to work in my RHYMES! 😉 And Dr Seuss? Since the puzzles are submitted so many weeks in advance, it definitely is a coincidence…Good move with the “of his”! Have a good day, Caroline. Be well, and stay safe out there…📚🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Good Morning, Edith. I’m not exactly sure what you mean by “Jumble”, but if you’d like to sign up for this blog, and receive the daily Email from us, go to Jumbleanswer.com, and scroll down the page to where you’ll see this message:

      Please keep in mind though that we don’t have anything to do with publishing/giving you the Jumble puzzle itself. That’s available either through your newspaper, or on one of the online sites. We just offer the answers each day, and commentary on the puzzle. I hope this helps. 🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Good morning. No problem with the words but failed on solving the cartoon. All in all an almost perfect week. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Paul. Wishing you the same, and hoping you enjoy your day. 📚🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. No problems with anagrams, but I gave up on the puzzle solve. I am a devout Jumble follower and invite others to join this upbeat and frugal pastime that is second only to a good smooch. The rain on the plains is heavy once again.

    • Second only to a good smooch? Yikes! 😂 Good Morning, O. I like rainy days…in fact, I’d trade for it today…it’s cold and very windy here. Have a good one. Be well and stay safe out there…📚🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Good mental workout this morning. Anagrams came easily but the cartoon answer made me resort to paper and pencil. Figured out “of his” first and then played around with the rest of the letters until I arrived at the answer. One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books is “Oh the Places You’ll Go”. I will give one to my grandson when he graduates high school this year. Here’s hoping you all have “brains in your head and shoes on your feet” this morning. Take Care.

    • “You can steer yourself in any direction you choose”…So much wisdom and life lessons in the words of Dr Seuss. I’m a big fan too. There’s always some kind of RHYME going through my head! 😂 And what a caring gift to give! 👏🏻👏🏻Enjoy your day, Betty. Be well and stay safe…📚🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. As a retired math prof,it’s nice to be reminded of “Pi Day” as the geometric Pi is 3.14 etc.Regarding the puzzle,I got confused by smooch,trying to make it cosmos ,and then though a Dr Seuss fan,was completely stumped by the cartoon solution.Looking forward to hopefully an easier Monday puzzle.

    • I knew you’d enjoy it, Professor. And anyway, who doesn’t like a good Pi? 😉 I think the huge “clue” everyone seems to have overlooked is the word RHYME, Dr Seuss’ forte. Gleaning that word out of the equation..😉 would have definitely summed 😉it up. “A hint was given, it was there…But no one seemed to see it clear”! Have a good day, Prof. Be well, stay safe…and I hope you get to enjoy some Pi! 🥧🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Hi all – Had to pause at the last three words. I got SMOOCH by using the double letter trick and seeing SMOOTH first. UPBEAT looked like BEAUTY and ABRUPT before seeing the UP prefix, and then DEVOUT just appeared.
    I came within a whisker of giving up on the answer. I had “of the” or “of his” and saw that RHYME was in the letters but still didn’t see it until one last try putting RHYME in the answer and finally seeing LIFE as the required four letter word.

    Good wishes to everyone; batten down the hatches if the storm’s coming your way!

    Thanks for the mention of pi day, Angela (does pizza count? I could go for that!)
    For anyone interested, an absolutely fascinating book that shows how the understanding of pi also shows the state of human knowledge and progress or lack thereof at times is this:

    • Does pizza 🍕count? Is the Pope Catholic? Of course it does…it’s one of the major food groups, isn’t it? And a lot of pizza places are offering Pi deals today…(And I just got a text that Boston Market is offering Pot Pis for $3.14!)..😂 And 👏🏻👏🏻 for mentioning Rhyme. Your post hit before I was finished replying to the Professor…but the RHYME was so P-RHYME…it was the key to the solve. “No matter where you travel…no matter where you roam…You cannot think of Dr Seuss and not think of a poem”! 😉 Have a good one Steve. Be well and stay safe out there…📚🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I didn’t know that about the pizza places. I’m surprised I didn’t get a special offer from Round Table – they seem to have a promo for everything else!

        • IDK…Maybe it’s just a NY thing? 🤷🏻‍♀️ After all, we are the chosen few when it comes to 🍕! 😂🙋🏻‍♀️

        • Steve…That link I posted earlier about the Pi Day offers. There’s mention of Pizza places in there…I just figured it was a given all over. But then again, I guess it might just be a NY thing…you know since when it comes to Pizza…we’re the upper CRUST! 😂🍕🙋🏻‍♀️

          • Annnd, right on cue in my mailbox just now 😂😂

            • 👏🏻👏🏻 Told you! But you do realize it’s because “they” trace everything we “speak”about, right? 😂😂 I’m figuring definitely within the hour I’ll have something come in related to the Church. Father forgive me…there was no pun intended! 😂😂 Enjoy your 🍕Steve! You can thank me later! 😉🍕🙋🏻‍♀️
              What’s a twist? 🤷🏻‍♀️

              • No, it’s because I’ve signed up for their promos.
                Their “twist” is a spiral-shaped cheese and garlic breadstick.

              • Ah…That’s what “they” want us to believe! 😂😂 Oh, a garlic knot. Love those…🍕💤
