  1. Today the anagrams were easy but I could not get the puzzle solution.
    Still and all this was an amusing week.
    We will see what tomorrow brings!!!!!!!!!

    • I’m sorry to hear that you were heaven a hard time with it, Mig. At least you have the weekend to look forward to. And the Dodgers… They’re on 🔥🔥🔥!!!

  2. Good Morning, Everyone. 🎶 IN-CHOIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW 🎶

    🎶 AMEN, amen, amen, amen, amen…Keep on pushin’ now…Amen, amen, amen, amen, amen…Hallelujah now…Amen, amen, amen, amen, amen…🎶 “Amen” – The Staple Singers 1965 https://tinyurl.com/74xv8unp

    🎶 So singing in a Choir, is what they’re all about,
    They’ll wear those robes that WHIRL around while singing their hearts out
    No place for a BIKINI, (and TRENCH doesn’t fit here)…
    But I guess wearing some CARGO pants is ok under there…
    I hope they make the final cut, I hope a place they win…
    So wish them luck as they try out and “IN-CHOIR” WITHIN! 🎶

    Even though I’ve used it all my life, I always thought that the idiom “Preaching to the Choir” sounded a little off key. Singing to the Choir, which is also a well-known idiom just seemed to fit better. I mean if we’re talking about a religious service of any kind, we’re all being preached to, whereas as far as the choir is concerned…well that’s singing. And there are those of the school that one is correct and the other isn’t. I guess it’s really just a matter of semantics. Or maybe it’s a regional thing. What do you all think? Which phrase did you grow up hearing, and most likely still use today? If you’d like to, drop a note in the comments and let’s see how many of us are in ac..chord.

    So I thought today would be a day where we’d have all repeat anagrams…until I fell into the CRNETH! So close! But with all old favorites on our playlist, the Early Birds were easily singing their praises, and made quick work of our words. And the solve? They were all definitely sharp…and the answer just came natural..ly.

    Today’s puzzle brings us to a Church, where we see a couple approaching asking about the Choir…The woman, asking where practice is being held, and her husband looking to offer his services as a tenor. The man greeting them at the door, who may or may not be a clergyman, points into the opened door, and directs them WITHIN, where all their CHOIR-related questions will be answered. Their INQUIRIES…And there’s our key to the solve…They need to “IN-CHOIR“ WITHIN! https://tinyurl.com/47t4ep6d …Brilliant! So let’s give prays where it’s due…David’s hit another high note!

    …And alto Jeff may not have given us a pastoral setting, his city scene has graced us with stained glass windows, pews seen through the opened door, and the sign posted stating that singers are wanted for Sunday services…I give hymn an Amen!

    So…There you have it Folks, Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe and I’ll leave you with a little Choir humor that fits our puzzle perfectly… A man goes into a church and asks the minister how much it would cost to rent a church singing group. The minister says…”Do you mean a choir?” “Fine’, the man says…’How much does it cost to acquire a church singing group?” 🎶🙋🏻‍♀️

    • The most interesting detail I found happened to be the coloring of the stained glass windows. On the outside of the building the stained portion is on the right, while inside it appears on the left. They’re nearly an identical match!

      I hope Jumble Jeff hops on the NFT train like a lot of other cartoonists have. A good friend of mine sent me a comic where the cartoonist included a link to an NFT auction right in one of the panels! The bidding is currently at $52.10, and I suspect it will go much higher as the weekend rolls on. Exciting times in the digital art world!

      Have a fantastic Friday everyone! 🙂👋🏻

      • I presume you saw the record-breaking price for the “Superman” Action Comics #1 Mike. Will the Syndicate create an NFT for the first Jumble cartoon? With all us fanatics around, it could work! 😂

        • Yes, I saw that Steve. The seller’s new hobby must be collecting 0’s!

          An NFT of the Jumble would be a great way to introduce it to a whole new (and massive) audience! 🤞🏻

  3. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Trying on CARGO shorts and a BIKINI, she began to WHIRL in front of the mirror in the dressing room…only to trip over a TRENCH-like hole in the carpet…and after getting dressed she went to INQUIRE WITHIN the store how she could lodge a complaint…🤷🏻‍♀️

    🙇🏻‍♂️ He had a choice to dig a TRENCH or unload all the CARGO,
    It didn’t matter either way, ‘cause his mind was on Margot
    He pictured her, BIKINI clad, his mind a constant WHIRL,
    Her beauty captivated him…her eyes, her smile, her curls…
    Distracted though, no work got done…and trouble did begin
    Now unemployed he’s facing signs saying “INQUIRE WITHIN”! 🙇🏻‍♂️

  4. I had to back in to get Cargo! Those letters were just not coming together first thing in the morning! Happy Friday! Have a wonderful weekend! 🤗

    • Good Morning, Kimberly. Oft times the 5 letter words prove to be more of a challenge than the 6! Happy Friday to you too, Kim….Be well and stay safe out there…🎶🙋🏻‍♀️

    • I thought putting it in drive makes the CARGO….. Do you drive an EV or something? 😂😂😂

      Enjoy your weekend, Kimberly!

  5. Good morning. Easy words for me this morning and me without strawberries or blueberries. The cartoon answer took some time. I had “ in” for the first part then came up with within, which left me choir. When I put it together it took me a little bit before it clicked on how brilliant the answer was. Angela I’d say all I ever heard was Preaching to the choir. I’d say that should win in a landslide. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Yep…Brilliant, indeed. So I was praying that you wouldn’t get the Quotation Trepidation this morning…and I see my prayers were answered!👏🏻👏🏻 And I agree, I think Preach says it all! 😉Have a good one, Paul. Be well and stay safe out there… 🎶🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Anagrams were a snap, and with all the I’s, within was a quick solve, followed by “in choir”,surprisingly so, since words in quotes usually stump me. We had a busy travel weekend last weekend, for Easter, but a stay at home weekend is the plan this weekend, with a visit by our son, Greg,with his 2 girls,Marla and Allice,but a rainy one.

    • Good Morning, Professor. You know, if you think about it, the quotes can make the solve a lot easier, because with them, you know that it’s going to be a play on, and a misspelling of whatever the puzzles theme is. Like today’s double use of the word “singer”..it was KEY! You just have to look for the clues….They’re always there! Enjoy the Family, Prof. Be well and stay safe out there. 🎶

  7. My Church doesn’t have a Choir. In fact, a lot of Catholic Churches don’t. We’re not big on raising the roof at our Masses, like some other religions do. We tend to go more with the sedate, old Latin-influenced chants. But I’ve attended services with friends of other denominations, and it’s a joyous feeling to let your hair down a little. The hand clapping, the foot stomping, the going with that Almighty flow. And being a big fan of the “Mike and Molly” show, this came to mind early this morning. https://tinyurl.com/c86fy642 . Ok so maybe Victoria took it a little “too” far, but you catch my drift. Anyway, also being a big fan of the Staple Singers, and Miss Mavis in particular, “Amen” just seemed like the ideal song to accompany today’s puzzle. But while I’ve never been known to joke about any subject religiously related, I have to admit…the irreverence in me? This was PRAYing on my mind this morning too. So, with a mea culpa to the Lord, (and an apology to Johnny Mathis)…Fellow worshippers…I give you…”CHANTS’s Are”… https://tinyurl.com/33yk2kz6 🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

      • LOL! 😂 Tk you, Betty! I started humming it this morning, and Lou laughed. But now, more than six hours later, he pulls out the 45…and I have to admit, I started laughing too. So…I figured I’d pass the plate 😉 and share! (Plus Lent’s over…so I figured what the hey…I can skid a little…And I did do the mea culpa…just in case)! 🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Good puzzle this morning. Trench was the word that gave me pause – thought it would begin with “ch” or “th” but no, it was at the end. At any rate it was a successful solve. We have (had) two choirs at our church one is less formal and the other does the whole Gregorian High Mass bit. The pandemic has curtailed all choir activity so am not sure how soon any singing will return to our churches. In person church services have only resumed in the last week or so and capacity is extremely limited – 100 people in a church that holds 1500. Never thought I’d see the day when we’d be Praising the Lord on YouTube. Wishing all of you a good day.

    • Yes, Betty…a really good puzzle. I love the solve…And yes, YouTube, TV, and Facebook. My old Parish in Brooklyn streams the Mass live on Facebook every morning, so I watch. And on Sunday mornings, a Mass comes on a local TV station here at 5:30, so I go with that. It’s very different…but, then again, what isn’t today? As long as we worship, right? God knows, no pun intended, we need all the prayers we can muster. Have a good one, Betty. Be well and stay safe…🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Hi all – My only hesitation was on TRENCH, but I suspected that the TH should be split up and CH used in the word. The dialog implying CHOIR made the answer an instant giveaway. (The colorful stained-glass windows are just shades of gray in The Chronicle today.)

    I liked your “sharp” and “natural” puns, Angela. Now take a break; you earned a good REST! (Also “alto” instead of “although”.)

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The BIKINI-clad hitchhiker caused the CARGO truck driver to WHIRL his head around and end up in a roadside TRENCH.”

    Completely off topic here one more time – for anyone who enjoyed music expert Rick Beato’s episode yesterday, there’s another you might like. He read an article that said that Paul Simon’s music would be forgotten in 200 years, and that really set him off! If you make it through the opening rant, he has a fascinating story about how Bach was unknown 200 years ago except to a few classical composers, and shows his pilgrimage to the church where Bach was the music director and is buried.

    • LOL! Thanks Steve. It’s a fun puzzle. And you’re right…I can definitely use the REST…if anyone knows it’s you! 😉 And I’m glad you’ve found Rick Beato. He’s quite entertaining, right? There’s a plethora of his stuff out there. The man definitely know his music. Oh, and I thought you might DITCH a sentence today, like OO did, because of Bikini…so Kudos 👏🏻👏🏻 for coming up with a good one! Enjoy your day, Steve. Be well and stay safe…🎶🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Thanks Angela! Beato has not only passed a million followers I believe, but he’s also been signed by Gibson Guitars to be a spokeperson and possibly have a signature model guitar made. That’s respect!

        • …And definitely well deserved, he’s very talented. As I mentioned y’day, my bother, the musician one, came across him a while back, and has followed him ever since. That’s how I came to know of him. So again, I’m glad you found him. But you didn’t say how you did. Just on a fluke? 🤷🏻‍♀️

          • Yes, probably in my YouTube suggested videos a year or so ago. I was following some other musicians commenting about Beatle songs like Mike Pachelli.

            • It’s amazing what’s out there, right. How’d we ever do without it all in the past? 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • LOL! Ok…But I will say a prayer for you instead! 😉 Enjoy your day, Agnes. Be well and stay safe. 🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. *** FYI: If any of you are fans of David’s Just 2 Words Plus puzzles, the app has been updated to include 123 new puzzles! 👏🏻👏🏻And David’s saying they’re some of his best ever! The man just keeps outdoing himself! Enjoy! *** 🙋🏻‍♀️

  11. First I thought of “chorus”, but there wasn’t a letter ‘u’.
    Nevertheless it was a great clue for me to solve this question.
    “Within” was a difficult word for me because I didn’t know that “within ” = “inside” in this case.

    • At least you were on the right track with Chorus…Maybe not the INSIDE track…but a track just the same…😉 Thanks for commenting, and have a great day! 🎶🙋🏻‍♀️
