  1. Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Little is known about our ol’ pal Patrick. After a bit of reading, all of the stories I came across seemed to offer up the same few facts. It turns out Pat was born In Britain. At the age of 16, he was captured by Irish raiders and transported to Ireland as a slave. He spent six years there as a herdsman, found religion, and ultimately escaped back to Britain. Upon his return, it is believed that he spent 15 years in religious training, had a dream that he should return to Ireland as a missionary, and eventually did. He also supposedly performed a few miracles along the way. Legend has it that he made pigs appear for hungry sailors, brought people back from the dead and even banished all the snakes out of Ireland. Feel free to impress your dinner guests with your newfound knowledge. They should provide for some topical conversation!

    All of the anagrams returned as new, but their solutions have all been used before. I wasn’t stumped by any of them, but I did need a few extra seconds to ensure ENTICE wasn’t INCITE. I was rather pleased that it was four up and four down because that meant I had plenty of time to scour our cartoon for details.

    Jumble Jeff gave us a glimpse of a St. Patrick’s Day parade that was slowly making its way down Main Street. At the front of the pack was a rainbow float that was sponsored by the “Pot O’ Gold Diner.” Behind them were two people carrying a banner that simply read “Happy St. Patrick’s Day.” Jeff replaced the dot over the “i” in Patrick with a small clover. The caboose was a convertible-style vehicle that had a sign on the door which read “Shamrock Queen.” It looked like she was carrying a bouquet of flowers in her right hand, and was wearing a pageant-style glove on her left. I didn’t notice a driver operating either of the floats. I’m not quite sure how floats work, but I’d assume they function like ordinary vehicles. My favorite detail was the traffic light hanging above the parade. There was so much to look at that I almost missed it. What a shame it would have been if I overlooked our biggest clue!

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of ten letters. Seven of them were consonants and three were vowels. The final solve came instantly upon reading the dialogue and sentence. The aforementioned traffic light was pretty much the icing on the cake. Have a stupendous St. Patrick’s Day everyone, and keep Jumbling!

    • And Mike…two more sweet touches…The woman standing atop the pot O’Gold float has a safety handrail to grasp onto…a Lucky Charm! And Jeff’s made one of the people carrying the banner a woman. All’s fair in love and begorrah! ☘️🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. 1.00 minute to get the anagrams and solution—is it Monday again???
    Fun and easy. I doubt anyone had a hard time with this J.
    Mike and Angela will keep me focused so tomorrow should be fun!!

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

    🗣While they had the GREEN LIGHT to go ahead and try to ENTICE new members, the situation grew HAIRY when the GOSSIP started, so the committee chairman brought down the GAVEL on the whole idea…🗣

    👨🏻‍⚖️ The Judge looked ever somber, the defendant not so great,
    A beard all HAIRY-unkempt, and he forced the court to wait..
    His lawyer not successful to ENTICE him to be prompt,
    And soon the GOSSIP started that the docket would get swamped
    The Judge became annoyed now, and he held his GAVEL tight…
    And the court sat there in silence just waiting for the GREEN LIGHT …👨🏻‍⚖️

    Happy St Patrick’s Day to all our readers! ☘️

  5. The chairman’s gavel sounded as he began to entice gossip from the hairy leprechaun. All good Irishmen then had the green light to wag their tongues over a pint of Guinness. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to the folks that are Irish and those that wish they were!

  6. Good morning. I must have had a 4 leaf clover in my lucky charms cereal because I breezed through the words and had a blind solve on the cartoon answer. Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    ☘️ Things aren’t what they use to be, but GOSSIP had leaked out,
    A small parade would still be held…but no crowds stood about
    In NYC a small group marched Madison Avenue,
    Though people tried to ENTICE that there’d be more than a few
    The GAVEL went down to proclaim responders would attend,
    The Medical profession and the like invites to lend…
    This town’s Pot O’Gold Diner’s float…a HAIRY leprechaun,
    Stands with a beard under the mask that safety made him don
    And at the rear the Shamrock Queen waves to the few in sight…
    Happy enough to be there and be given the GREEN LIGHT! ☘️

    However you may celebrate today…Enjoy! And here’s looking forward to next year, when hopefully thousands of people will line the streets once again. Be well, stay safe, and may we all find a pot of gold at the end of our rainbows! ☘️🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. My clients sat around the table faithfully having breakfast and drinking coffee doing this puzzle .It would be great if it was book with nothing but puzzles. I would. Enjoy that myself.

  9. I thought the second cartoon word was right rather than light,which prevented my solving the first word,but after seeing green due to St Pat’s day,the green light solution popped into mind.As far as the anagrams,they were a quick solve.Go easy on the corned beef and cabbage,and green beer ,if that is in the offing in your area.

  10. Hi all – GAVEL took an extra look, and then GOSSIP took a couple despite the double letter trick working. No idea about the answer, but as soon as I wrote the letters the G’s showed GREEN and the rest.

    Good wishes to everyone, and happy St. Patrick’s day.
