  1. Since the player she called Jim corrected his name to James I thought this might be a solution involving 007. Alas no Casino Royale or other gambling stuff in the dialog. SUITED HIM WELL fits well but doesn’t really float my boat.
    OTOH this is the only one I failed on today sooooooooooooooooo…………
    See you on Fried Egg Day!!!!

    • I guess there’s always BOND to be one that doesn’t float your boat! 😉Enjoy your day, Mig. Stay well and safe…♦️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • “she called Jim”. Yes my hair has grown quite a bit over the last 14 months without a haircut. I was walking with my wife and Mother-in-law and as we passed an older gentleman, he said, “How lucky am I to have three beautiful women walk past?” I took is as a compliment. Alas I got a haircut this week and the stylist and I miscommunicated and she removed most of my Covid locks. Looks like we’ll be enduring this pandemic for some time to come. I’ll try again.

    • Agree, the comments threw me off. I, too, thought it had something to do with him being called Jim instead of James! Really had nothing to do with solving the puzzle.

      • It’s just a little whimsy regarding the fact that a classic line of the movies was…”Bond, James Bond”. 😉🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. Good Morning, Everyone… ♦️DIAMONDS ARE A MAN’S BEST FRIEND?♦️

    🎶 He’s your guy when stocks are high…But beware when they start to descend…. But DIAMONDS are a girl’s best friend…🎶 “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” – Marilyn Monroe 1953 https://tinyurl.com/z6b4c587

    ♦️To succeed at playing Poker, one must always WEIGH their odds,
    And have a very stoic look while looking at their cards
    And here James Bond is smooth as SUEDE, despite the cards he holds
    He looks as if it’s TEDIUM, opposing one quite bold
    As DOLLAR after dollar in a pot of Poker swells…
    Here it’s the Jack of Diamonds…has no way SUITED HIM WELL…♦️

    Ok…Having a few technical issues this morning..but I’ll tell you that our words are ones that have all been dealt before…

    And the puzzle’s theme? Poker, where you have four SUITS of cards…Hearts, Clubs, Spades…and Diamonds. And what we’re seeing being played is Texas Hold ‘Em. And the players…James Bond and a nemesis. But whether or not his opponent here today is Le Chiffre or our own resident poker player, Jeff, the bottom line is that Bond is definitely not the winner, and being called Jim is the least of his problems. His opponent has succeeded in coming up with a Royal Flush, the 10 to an Ace all in the same suit, which in this case is Diamonds, and which is near to impossible to achieve. The chances of doing so?…1 in 30,940 hands. So I’d say these “Diamonds Are Forever” giving this guy the pot of a lifetime. They’ve definitely SUITED HIM WELL…

    Jeff’s Gems? The Dealer’s showing the Ace of Hearts, the Ace, King, and Jack of Diamonds, and a Two of Clubs. Bond’s holding Aces, in Clubs and Spades, and the third player, Blofeld, holding his white Persian cat, has a pair of Twos, ditto on the suits. And lying amongst the pile of chips, a million dollar note can be seen. But the “Ace in the hole” for me today? …Has to be Bond’s ubiquitous martini. Shaken, not stirred…which I can definitely relate to this morning…

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. And let’s hope I’ve flushed out my tech difficulties, and I’m done with them too. Have a good one, Everybody. Be well, stay safe…and here’s hoping you’re all dealt a winning hand today…♦️🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Good morning. Unable to get Tedium on my own I went to the cartoon and immediately saw “suited him fine”. But putting the letters down I saw that the last word would be Well. I still couldn’t come up with that last word knowing the four letters needed were TIME. Oh well, since I looked that last word up I now have more time to enjoy my coffee and breakfast. By the way, the answer suits me just fine. It’s aces in my book or should I say a Royal Flush. Until tomorrow stay well and stay.

    • A Royal Flush indeed, Paul. It’s a very clever solve. And your “Aces in my book” 👏🏻👏🏻 is right on the money! Have a good one, Paul. Be well and stay safe out there…♦️🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. Tedium took me a lot of jumbling on paper. When I had no ideas for the answer other than thinking the first word might be a verb ending in ed, I looked up royal flush. This gave me Suited and then the rest. Wishing all a fun weekend.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. Despite going back years in Jumble play, Tedium seems to always be a stumper…I guess because it’s not a word we hear all that often. Wishing you a great day, Caroline. Be well and stay safe…♦️🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. 💸 He tried to WEIGH his options…buy the SUEDE jacket, or finally try putting a DOLLAR or two away for a rainy day…but the TEDIUM of it all bored him..frugality never SUITED HIM WELL…💶

    🤷🏻‍♂️ The quarantine def took it’s toll…he didn’t want to WEIGH,
    Himself after these long hard months…when home he’d always stay
    The SUEDE coat didn’t button, the TEDIUM took toll,
    Most of his jeans are now too tight around his stomach roll…
    DOLLAR to donuts nothing fits…is what he’s thinking now
    See? Food’s what quickly comes to mind…it’s always there somehow…
    So there’s a choice…buy all new clothes…and out big money shell
    Or just go on a diet…which had never SUITED HIM WELL 🤷🏻‍♂️

  6. Must be Friday,as tedium got me as did the cartoon solution.I thought the middle 3 letter word was the rather than him,so I was stumped again.

    • Not to worry, Professor…I doubt you’ll be alone with Tedium today. Have a good one, and stay safe out there. ♦️🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Chuck I did the same thing. Thought the second word was The as well. I could not get the puzzle or the word tedium. Hopefully tomorrow it will be a little easier.

  7. The only detail I couldn’t figure out was located next to the stack of shaded chips in the background. It has the shape of a small bird when enlarged, but my guess is that it’s some sort of good luck charm. Was there a Bond antagonist that carried around something like that? My only experience with Bond movies came via Austin Powers!

  8. All four words solved easily. Figured middle jumble word was “HIM”. Tried to find connection with James Bond to no avail. Thus, answer did not come until doing the words. Oh well !!!

    • …Good Morning, Terry. But as long as the solve comes…that’s what counts, right? Well done! Have a good day…Be well and stay safe.♦️🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. I’m in good company today as I struggled first with tedium and then, like Mig started focusing on the James vs Jim dialogue. Like Caroline, I had to look up what cards make up a Royal Flush. Figured out that the middle word would be him or his. Finally saw well and the rest fell into place. It was a good workout this morning. Hope all of you have a good day.

    • Good Morning, Betty. I think Tedium will surely fall under the heading of “House of Cards” today…it’s definitely a great anagram. Kudos on the solve! Enjoy your day, Betty…Be well and stay safe. ♦️🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Hi all – Got the words. I always try IUM as a suffix looking for a chemical element, but it also worked for TEDIUM today. Figured the first answer word ended in ED and the second was probably HIS or HIM, and the remaining letters showed it.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “Although they SUITED HIM WELL, he began to WEIGH the expense and TEDIUM of paying top DOLLAR for blue SUEDE shoes and having to constantly get them cleaned versus just going with more conventional footwear.”

    • …And also getting HOUNDed like a DOG for wearing Blue Suede 👏🏻 Shoes! 😂 Enjoy your day, Steve…Be well and stay safe. 👞♦️🙋🏻‍♀️
