  1. Happy Thursday everyone! Even though it was a stinky homonym pun, I quite enjoyed it. We’ve been graced with a few of these over the years. My favorite one was “patient patient” back on 08/12/20. In today’s answer, the first “sole” was used as an adjective meaning “the only one,” and the second was used as a noun to identify the species of flatfish. Sole can also be used to refer to the undersurface of a foot or a part of a shoe. I’m glad the guys didn’t try to fit in any of those other meanings. It surely would have been overkrill!

    It was all classic clue words this morning. Even though none of them were new, all of the anagrams just happened to be. They all came into view upon first glance, which was pretty surprising seeing as we’re nearing the end of the work week. The poll indicates that “coilas” is the one causing all of the trouble today. Since none of them stumped me, I’ll go ahead and make it my pick for hardest anagram too.

    I’m sure we’ve all experienced the feeling of being lost and alone at one point or another in our lives. It definitely is “sole”-crushing to say the least. Jumble Jeff perfectly nailed the look of concern on this little guys face. With the mention of Dover in the dialogue, I assume he’s somewhere in the Mediterranean or North Sea. My guess is that Jeff added the sunken sailboat to indicate that Dover Soul prefer to live in deep, cold waters. Here in New England, we refer to flatfish as flounder, and they’re quite easy to catch. They’re not as tasty as true Dover Sole, but it’s nothing a few knobs of butter and parsley can’t fix.

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of eight letters. The consonant and vowel counts were evenly split at four. The length of the layout, as well as the repeating letters within made this one a breeze to solve. I won’t bore you with the details, and will just say “sole” long for now. Have a terrific Thursday everyone, and keep Jumbling!

  3. Well this has been a God Awful two weeks for the Dodgers………
    But this week has been easy as pie on Jumble.
    Social was the only word that slowed my roll. Sole sole was easy.
    Glad to see that Mike is back and Angela has support!

    • That’s Lasorda thing a good manager can fix, Mig! There’s plenty of time for Mr. Roberts to get them back on track.

      Keep up the good work on the J. You’re doing a swell job this week. Catch ya later! 🙂

      • Thanks brother! Dave Roberts is an excellent coach but repeating is especially hard in MLB!

  4. Good Morning, Everyone… 🐠 SOLE SUPPORT? 🐠

    🎶 KELP me if you can, I’m feeling down…And I do appreciate you being ’round….KELP me get my feet back on the ground…Won’t you please, please KELP me, KELP me, KELP me, ooh…🎶 “Help” – (with an apology to) The Beatles 1965 https://tinyurl.com/5h34js9j
    🐠 Alone beneath the ocean’s depth, there swims the lonely sole,
    The others all have disappeared…and now lo and behold…
    The EXODUS? Why no one knows, he is a SOCIAL sort,
    But it seems they have swum away…perhaps to Dover’s port?
    And where is his sweet FILLY Fish? She knows he can be needy,
    There’s something fishy going on…this whole thing seems too SEEDY
    And he just hopes they hurry back, so the gang can be whole…
    It’s no fun swimming all alone…He hates being SOLE SOLE! 🐠

  5. 🐎 The stable where he kept his prized FILLY, “Filly of SOLE”, began to take on a SEEDY look…so he decided that at the next SOCIAL gathering of the horse owners, he would bring up the subject of a mass EXODUS…🐎

    🎤 She sang with so much passion, a lively girl was she,
    The SOCIAL butterflies dubbed her “Brooklyn’s Own Sweet FILLY”
    She sang at all the rodeos, some SEEDY and some plush,
    And when her name was on the bill, there was no EXODUS
    But this time when she headlined, the ad guy took a toll…
    The billboard to read “Solo Act”? …He ‘stead printed “SOLE…SOLE”! 🎤

  6. Jumble Pie for me too! And a quick second look at SOCIAL! Have a great Day! ☀️

    • We’ll see what tomorrow brings! The “easy” ones always always leave me wanting more. 🙂

  7. The big puzzle give away was DOVER in the picture…Initial reaction was SOLE SOUL. When solving words and the only U was in last anagram, confused for a sec about whether EXODUS was correct…thus giving no U. I get it now…there was no spirituality involved !!!

    • The use of Dover was gilding the lily. It brought it all together nicely, but made the solution a bit too easy (for me.)

  8. Good morning. Social was my pick for hardest word. It took me an extra minute or so to come up with it. Putting the letters down showed all doubles which made the cartoon answer simple. Perfect song choice Anonymous, let Angela know. It fit the poor fish who must feel all alone and wondering if he’s going to be on someone’s menu with no others to lessen his faith. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  9. Nothing hard about the anagrams or the cartoon,today or even all week.Love the Exodus reference.

  10. No soul searching for the answers this morning. We’ve had an easy time of it this week so far. Have a good day all.

  11. Seedy and Exodos took me some time to figure out, but once I figured the answer the anagrams made sense. Bad pun though.

    • Come on, Mark! It was both stinky and rotten, but “bad” is kind of harsh. I respect your opinion though. Thanks for letting us know.

  12. Hi all – Easy one today. At first glance I thought the answer would have something to do with “flounder”, but the “only fish around” and the reference to Dover Sole made it obvious.

     🎵”Do you like good music? (Yeah, Yeah)
    That sweet soul music (Yeah, Yeah)..
    Spotlight on Sam and Dave now
    Ah don’t they look boss y’all
    Singin’ hold on I’m comin’
    Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, oh yeah”🎵 (Arthur Conley, 1967)

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The FILLY tried to be SOCIAL with the Derby horses, but her SEEDY appearance caused an EXODUS from the stable.”

    • PS – Was that indeed the graveyard of sunken sailboats? What a treat! (and have we been there before?)

      • Thanks Mike. I remember Dover Sole from an article about Elvis. His diet was bad, and someone suggested to him that he was so rich he could have actual Dover Sole flown in from Dover, but he couldn’t be pried free from his beloved fried banana sandwiches.

      • Reminds me of a nonsense saying my father used to quote, supposedly spoken to a kid named “Abey” or “Abie” (originally about goldfish):
        “A B C D sole fish?”
        “L M N O sole fish!”
        “O S A R!”

        • Steve…It goes like this…🐠🙋🏻‍♀️
          ABCD goldfish? Abey see the goldfish?
          LMNO goldfish…Hell, them ‘ no goldfish!
          OSAR! CMPN? …Oh yes they are! See em peein?

        • *”Hell, them AIN’T no goldfish” …Fingernail got the ain’t! 😂🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Maybe because it was considered a little too “risqué” for kids. There’s more…but this AIN’T the PLAICE! 😂🙋🏻‍♀️

  13. Say hey CUBBIES!! Cubs win Cubs win Dodgers no good this year. Yay.!
