  1. Good Morning, Everyone…

    🎶 Sentimental fool, am I…To hear a OLD love SONG and wanna cry…’Cause the melody keeps HAUNTING me…Reminding me how in love we used to be…But it’s the SAME OLD SONG…but with a different meaning since you’ve been gone…🎶 “It’s The Same Old Song” – The Four Tops 1965 https://tinyurl.com/e2658hvf

    📝 I’m not against a Hymn or two, and they do serve a purpose,
    But just how many is enough…after you scratch the surface?
    Let’s VERIFY what we see here…the number does IMPOSE,
    (Although the people did ACCEPT each song as numbers rose)…
    But if you’re on an OUTING, perhaps on a GRASSY plain,
    Be honest, Folks…you’ll never sing not even one refrain…
    Sure Isaac was the one who’d SHAKEN up the Hymnal world,
    But who amongst us taps our feet, as these tunes are unfurled?
    Maybe it’s just me and my grudge, for all the past hair-raisers…
    But Hymn’s just not my cup of tea…I never SANG HIS PRAISES! 📝

    Ok, so here’s the rub. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always wondered why they were called Hymns, and not Hers. And since I attended Catholic school, the subject came up a lot. So I bounced it off more than one Nun…And needless to say, it never went over very well. But trust me, I kept trying..Religiously…I figured sooner or later I’d hit upon one of them that would understand where I was coming from. Uh…no. And I think my parents ended up having to pay extra tuition…or make some kind of extra donation to pacify the Nuns, and quell the angst I supposedly kept causing. The details are a little fuzzy. But all I wanted was an answer to what I felt was a legitimate question…And if I’m not mistaken, that may have been the beginning of the CHANT I was forced to endure from the faculty throughout my entire grade school experience…”Why can’t you be more like your brothers”? Humph! ..Well…maybe I might have been, if I could have had a few out of those 700 some odd Hymns named after me, like they did…But, I digress…

    So…Isaac Watts. https://tinyurl.com/48h9vbuk , the man who wrote SCORES of songs of PRAISE. Finally a name to the nemesis. Too little, too late for me though. Although I would still like to ask him “So Isaac, WATTS up with all that? More than 700 Hymns, and you couldn’t see fit to cut us girls a little slack”? Oh, sorry…I’m doing it again, aren’t I? PSALM old story… Ok, I’ll REFRAIN…

    Ahem…Our words today are all brought to us by 20:20, verses March through December. And once again, we’ve a split decision. We’ve seen CAPECT and TGUINO in 2017, and SYRAGS, last year. And except for the tiniest bit of a PAUSE at ACCEPT, and a very brief REST at VERIFY, the Early Birds made beautiful music this morning. And the solve? With that, they all raised their voices in unison…PRAISE be!

    Our cartoon? A Church Service….with its Choir. Powdered wigs, choir gowns…a stern, Hymn-Sleeper looking choir conductor at his podium, and six young boys in ruffled collars and soup-bowl haircuts, eyes raised to Heaven, who look like they’re possibly having a little TREBLE…and silently praying that they’ll each hit those notes of PRAISE seen floating around them. And there are stained glass windows, just to shed some light on the subject…And we overhear two of Isaac Watts’s peers, in aCHORD, showering him with acclaim. Just two of the people, you’ll NOTE, who SANG HIS PRAISES. https://tinyurl.com/8yf8b9aw (And even though he’s humbled, I’m sure it was MUSIC to his ears)!…And David, once again, perfectly orchestrates another winner!

    So, DREAR you have it Folks, Done! Be well, stay safe…and I wish you not only a good day, but 🎶Some EnCHANTed Evening🎶 to boot! https://tinyurl.com/32a2t366 📝🙋🏻‍♀️

    PS: Just for the RECORD… I know there’s a difference between a Chant and a HYMN. A chant is a tuneless repetition of some words over and over (usually in a religious ceremony), and a HYMN is a religious song of PRAISE, sung in a church. And while Hymns have a melody, a chant usually doesn’t…and is monotonous, with only a few repeated words. Just figured I’d state that, before anyone SOUNDed off on me, or David thought I was VOICING false information. You know I’d not want HYMN to think that! 🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. I like to praise many–Angela is one with all the effort she puts in here, Mike as well. This was a fun Sunday J and also pretty easy in my book. Had no problem with the anagrams or the solution. The Sunday Js are usually pretty easy for me…………
    The Dodgers bats seem to have come to life tonight. Win or lose this may be the end of their slump. Nice time for a great team to re-emerge!!!
    Warmer today in Tinsel Town.
    Mig, enjoying the J

  3. 👖 She SANG HIS PRAISES at the game, but after they’d gotten home, she was a little SHAKEN when she couldn’t get the GRASSY stains from the Baseball OUTING out of her husband’s jeans…and unwilling to ACCEPT it, she thought to IMPOSE on her neighbor to VERIFY that she was doing all she could…👖

    🍸 Martinis should be SHAKEN, you could VERIFY the fact,
    So he brought just what he needed, when they went out to the tract
    Of land they’d just invested in, an OUTING of a sorts,
    They’d sit out on the GRASSY land…just he and his cohorts…
    The seller finally did ACCEPT their offer after time,
    They did IMPOSE upon the guy, it was an upward climb…
    But now it was all settled, and they’ll start the next new phases…
    But first they’ll toast their seller…it’s def time they SANG HIS PRAISES! 🍸

  4. Like many other unscramblers, I am sure….today was a pretty easy solve, and completed the anagrams quickly. Prior to that, thought the puzzle answer had HIS and SINGING….but to no avail. Anyway, placing SING, SANG with HIS did the trick. The puzzle, however, did not inspire me to go to church and sing any of those 700 hymns !!!

    • LOL! Good Morning, Terry. With a hymn being a religious song or poem of PRAISE, and the two gentlemen lavishing such PRAISES on Isaac, that was the key to our 7-letter word today. We always need to take NOTE of the dialogue…And I’m in acCHORD!…There was no inspiration hitting me over the head either! Very well put! 👏🏻👏🏻! Wishing you a good one, Terry…Be well and stay safe out there…📝🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. A surprisingly easy Sunday Jumble.I usually have trouble w/the extra anagrams, and even more so with the extra letters on Sunday, but today’s anagrams went smoothly, even “accept” after a moment’s pause. And then even the cartoon solution was virtually a blind solve. No doubt,a result of 12 years of a Catholic school education, followed by a lifetime of attending Sunday Mass,usually with hymns!

    • I’m with you there, Professor! Our pasts mirror one another’s…As do our present day lives. I too am still a practicing Catholic, (despite my making light of the HYMNS)!!! 😉 And yes, a very easy Sunday Jumble. Enjoy your day, Prof. Be well and stay safe out there…📝🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Good morning. I did something I rarely ever do. I started with the cartoon first and came up with an instant read of “Sang His Praises”. Now I had to get the words and see if I was correct. Surprisingly the words came just as quick as the cartoon answer. After putting down the letters and checking I was surprised to find that I am a genius. The first time I tried the puzzle in reverse (against my way of doing things) I was a success. I might start a whole new trend. Naw, I don’t think so. I like the idea of starting from A and ending in Z, not the other way around. Loved your song choice as always Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • LOL! But you do have to admit, sometimes change is good, no? 😉 Good rainy Morning, Brooklyn…And Kudos! 👏🏻👏🏻 But you must know that I’ve been singing your praises for a long time now! Glad you enjoyed the music…One can never go wrong with 60’s Motown…Have a good one, Paul. Be well and stay safe…📝🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Puzzle and anagrams came as easy as Sunday morning. Never heard of Isaac Watts so I had to look him and found he was a non-conformist. Gotta respect that.

    • Easy as Sunday morning, indeed! And you’re right…a little non-conformity never hurt anyone! Have a good one…Be well and stay safe. 📝🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Even though there was no K in the anagram, for some reason I wrote down Packet instead of Accept. But Packet still gave me a P, so I was able to get the answer and find my mistake. Another excellent one from Jeff and David. Wishing all a good day.

    • Good Morning, Caroline. You definitely lucked out with the P! Gives all new meaning to minding ones P’s …and views! 🤦🏻‍♀️…And yes, it is another excellent OUTING for Jeff and David. Their winning RECORD remains intact! Wishing you a good day too, Caroline. Be well and stay safe out there…📝🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Except for a slight pause at accept everything fell into place easily this morning. I too had never heard of Isaac Watts so I learned something new this morning. Wishing all of you a good Sunday.

    • Good Morning, Betty. I’d never heard of HYMN either. So now, I get to put a name to the blame! 😉 Just goes to show you, not only is this fun, it’s educational to boot. Something David’s all about. https://tinyurl.com/6hsy2wmr Wishing you a good Sunday too, Betty. Be well and stay safe…📝🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Hi all – This one was surprisingly like a Monday puzzle for me today. Got the words and the answer; the only pause was for a few Jumbles before seeing the IM prefix leading to IMPOSE.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    At first glance I thought it was going to be about Isaac Newton, alas! *Him* I’ve heard of.😂 We sang so many hymns in church and at Christmas that I thought I might know a bunch of them, but of the ones listed on Wikipedia I only recognized “Joy to the World” and “Our God Our Help in Ages Past.”
    Had to laugh at your story, Angela. My wife got in trouble when they read about Adam and Eve leaving the garden and running into other people, and she’s like “Waitaminnit! WHAT other people??” I think it got back to her parents, and as the old saying goes, they were like “Shut up, they explained.” 😂

    Angela noted these, but the cartoon detail I liked the most was that they apparently used the same bowl for all the choir boys’ haircuts (and I took NOTE of the music flying over their heads.)

    “He was SHAKEN to VERIFY that the council would IMPOSE such harsh requirements for a simple OUTING in his GRASSY local park, but decided to ACCEPT them just to keep the peace.”

    • The other people? In Catholic elementary school? …TRYST me, they never went that deep! 😉 God only knows, (no pun intended) what cans of worms that would have opened!! And I just caught a pun that slipped right past you…”Adam and Eve LEAFing the garden”..🤦🏻‍♀️.(You know me, I’ll clutch at STRAWs to pick a pun)! 😂 And I look back now and laugh too…but at the time it definitely wasn’t funny…In fact someone asked me this morning if the Nuns ever noticed my creativity…Noticed it? They couldn’t see the forest for the beads! Those beads! You’d hear them rustling behind your head, and you’d cringe! Those nuns were the original 🥷 Ninjas! They’d sneak up on you out of nowhere! The trauma was real!! 😂😂 And as for the hymns? Let’s be honest here…with more than 700 of them? You were bound to miss a few! 😉 And lastly…those haircuts?…Yep, it must have been a SUPER BOWL! (How’d I LEAF that one out last night? I better make NOTE of it for future reference)! 😂 Ok…I’m sure you’ve heard enough…Oh wait. Isaac Newton? I FIGured you might say that! 🤦🏻‍♀️ And as for that GRASSY local park? 👏🏻👏🏻…HASH requirements are definitely going by the wayside! NY’s going up in SMOKE! …Have a good one, Steve. And be extra kind to your wife today…God knows the poor woman’s suffered enough! 🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

      • I guess the “FIG Newton” goes along with the Adam and Eve, but I also guess I’m no Bible scholar! 😂

        • LOL! Which I’m sure is why you turned out so sane! That Bible study CAIN definitely make one unABEL to think clearly after awhile! 😉🙋🏻‍♀️
