  1. Good Morning, Everyone. 🍷 DECANT GET ENOUGH! 🍷

    🎶 I got CHILLS, they’re multiplying and I’m losing control…’Cause the power you’re supplying…It’s electrifying… You’re the WINE that I want (you are the WINE I want)…Ooh, ooh, ooh, Honey…The WINE that I want (you are the WINE I want)…Ooh, ooh, ooh, Honey… The WINE I need (the WINE I need)….Oh, yes indeed (yes, indeed)…🎶 ”You’re The One That I Want” – (with an apology to) John Travolta & Olivia Newton John 1978 https://tinyurl.com/mhjre4n4

    🍷 There’s nothing like a visit to a Vineyard, trust me here,
    And NY has some beauties, they’re spread out both far and near…
    This new Cafe looks like a hit, the crowds are there to pounce,
    Looking to try new blends of wine…have the standard five OUNCE
    They may UPEND the numbers, this place likely to sweep,
    (The words both Up and Sweep… my thoughts to HAIRDO may now creep)
    But lest I put a STIGMA on what I’ve come here to do,
    I’ll get back to this puzzle, where it’s wine, and not hairdos
    A new Cafe, grapes into wine…these things are all akin…
    To a successful business…and imbibers POURING IN! 🍷

    My Grandfather, an immigrant from a beautiful, picturesque island in Italy called Ischia, was a winemaker. Well actually, he was a tailor, a skilled artisan, with hands of gold, who turned the least bit of fabric into a work of art. But he was also a very skilled winemaker. And in the home he bought in Brooklyn, NY, where I was born and RED, he and his brothers built what I grew up knowing in our Neapolitan dialect as a “cantil”….a cantina, a basement wine cellar. And there were bottles and bottles…(and bottles) of wine…for as many years as I can remember…way into my adulthood. And I remember everyone speaking so highly of Signore ——-‘s wine, which he so generously shared. We were celebrities of a sort, I suppose. And I remember when I was finally able to sample some of his wine, how good it was. And I also remember that when I later bought wine of my own…I realized how great his wine had been. Memories…

    And today’s words are made of memories too. All old favorites, and another split decision for our anagrams, with CUONE and IRHODA having graced our pages before. And after a few Rhoda jokes, and a conversation that segued into Valerie Harper, and then Mary Tyler Pour…the Early Birds SILTED down and totally CRUSHED the entire puzzle…with the solve once again going down easily!

    So, today we’ve taken a SEDIMENTAL Journey to the Jumble Vineyard’s new cafe. And as we can see by our cartoon, business is booming! With tables FULL of BODY’s where wine’s being poured, and a line out the POUR waiting to be SEEDed, there’s no RIESLING to doubt the new cafe’s success. And between that, and our dialogue giving us “busy” and a “steady crowd”, it’s no stretch to see that the customers are just…POURING IN! https://tinyurl.com/25pxczs9 Cheers, David! Another slam DRUNK!

    Jeff’s Gems? The lack of any visible food tells me that the cafe doesn’t have a permit allowing eating on premises. The regulations are strict. There’s plenty of pouring going on at our three tables, and I’m happy to see that at least one of the patrons is a leftie. The guy at back. I mean it’s only WHITE…And I notice that that table has three glasses, while we can only see two people. I guess the third person didn’t make the cut…hey, SIP happens! There’s a VINTAGE wooden T-style corkscrew at the center table, and the signature Jumble “J” logo, encircled within the square, can be seen on the bottle’s labels, and the hostess stand. And through the archways we can see the beautiful vineyard. But what has me somewhat seeing RED this morning, and left with a feeling of SOUR GRAPES because I can’t figure it out, is why the two women at the back of the line have such strange looks on their faces. Both of them have their eyes exaggeratedly raised upward, and their mouths aGRAPE…And you know me… I’m not one to BOTTLE up my feelings…so…without appearing to be in POUR taste…I have to ask…What’s the PEEL with that? SEEDLESS to say, it’s odd…And if I wasn’t so PRESSED for time, I’d try to figure it out, but I really need to WINE this up…So maybe one of you could help SETTLE the issue.

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a good one. Be well, stay safe and let’s not make any POUR decisions…Here’s to you all being CONTENT to “Love The WINE You’re With”! https://tinyurl.com/49k5ms85 Saluti, Cin Cin! 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Both of my grandfathers made wine as well. A few years after my grandfather died, I remember my own father opening the last bottle of wine Nonno had made and we all toasted him. Good memories indeed, Miss Angela.

      • Beautiful, bittersweet memories, Betty, and I love your story. Enjoy your day, Betty. And I think tonight I’m going to toast all the Grandfathers…🍷❤️🙋🏻‍♀️

  2. 💇🏻‍♀️ Determined to UPEND the ridiculous STIGMA of it being old-fashioned, she proved that an upswept HAIRDO was very chic, especially when those OUNCE-sized hairpieces were added…and as a result the clients were POURING IN…💇🏻‍♀️

    💨 The wind had ruined her HAIRDO, and it did UPEND her cart,
    She lost at least an OUNCE or two of fresh artichoke hearts…
    And fearful of a STIGMA, a new site she’d have to win…
    This windy corner ruins business…There’s not a buyer POURING IN! 💨

  3. Slightly harder for me today. It took 2:52 to solve. Long for most days. I looked at the anagrams but couldn’t even twist them into a lame sentence, so I didn’t!
    Of course I can no longer have a HAIRDO.
    IS that a stigma for me?
    I will hang up and listen to your answer………………………

  4. Good morning. Loved it today. The two six letter words took some time to get as well as the cartoon answer. I was thinking lineing up but the e doesn’t belong. After writing down the letters and pouring over them, I came up the the correct answer. It’s not what I wanted at first but it’s much better than my thought. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning! Hoping you stay well and safe too, Paul. 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

  5. One of those days to inspire a little confidence to my brain….Easily solved puzzle and then the words came fairly easy. I do have to admit that I had to give UPEND an extra look or two. In fact, had to back it in, knowing the puzzle answer first. Other than that, all is well in Austin

  6. Oh my Good Grief! At first look, I thought the answer was going to be Winding In. Then got to the words! Did my famous 12 time pencil scratch with Stigma. (What is up with that?) 🙄Should not have taken this long! I’m blaming it on the rain 🌧 today! 😉Good weekend to all!

  7. My grandfather,an immigrant from Eastern Europe,also dabbled in wine making at home,and wine was a post dinner feature at the Sunday or Holiday dinners.As far as the Jumble,all went well with pauses on hairdo and upend,but having solved those,the cartoon solution was an immediate solve,continuing the easy Jumble week.

    • I think a lot of our Grandfathers were creative 😉back then! Have a good one, Prof! 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. As 60% of the human adult body is water, POURING is the exact wording in the solution.
    Except for HAIRDO, everything flowed in like wine.
    My wife and I have at least one glass of wine at supper time and on cruises, at 5 o’clock also,

  9. gtaims can be mistag or stigma. Of course I had mistag and could not solve the puzzle until changing to stigma.

    • Hi, Bob. Point well taken. But David, the creator of the Jumble puzzles, has always said that he only uses words that are listed in the Merriam Webster Dictionary, and you can see from this https://tinyurl.com/ty55cawe that Mistag isn’t included. But I will mention it to him, since it does now seem to be somewhat of a controversial word. Thank you for commenting, and enjoy your day! 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. Finished off the week with another easy puzzle. Our local wineries are certainly hoping that guests start pouring in too. As everyone knows, it’s been a tough year for the hospitality business. Here’s hoping the situation improves quickly. 🍷

    • Definitely an easy week, Betty. And the same here. Sadly though so many businesses won’t recover. But things are beginning to open up, so yes, hopefully there’s better days ahead. Have a good one, Betty. Saluti Cin Cin! 🍷🍷🙋🏻‍♀️

    • I just drove by the Grand Lake Theater, and the marquee notes a local flea market that’s re-opening, and says that the theater itself is planning to open in late May for the first time since March of 2020. Good news.

      • That is good news, Steve and the Grand Lake Theater is truly a landmark. We have two little theaters in our neighborhood but haven’t heard anything about them reopening yet. Fingers crossed! 🤞

  11. Hi all – I saw HAIRDO just from being stuck on it so many times in the past, and to a lesser extent, same for STIGMA. From the answer circles I thought “Lining up”, “Queueing up” or “Wining up”, but as soon as I looked up to the cartoon and saw people pouring their wine it was obvious.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Angela, my guess is that the two women in line are admiring the winery ceiling, maybe with old-world stonework and some massive Coast Redwood beams. The dollar store I sometimes go to is a converted theater, and the vaulted ceiling is still elaborately painted. I find myself staring up at it just like these two people (although it is often a bit obscured by the escaped helium balloons nesting up there.)
    I also loved the story about your grandfather. Say a toast to mine also while you’re at it, maybe with some clarinet or saxophone music, and give thanks for his sense of humor, which is probably why I’m here.

    “Anyone with an OUNCE of common sense would have known that his new-wave HAIRDO would UPEND the decorum of the conservative opera crowd and brand him with a permanent STIGMA as the criticism came POURING IN.’

    • Could be…they definitely seem fixated on something. Thank you…and of course…When I said Grandfathers, I meant in general. Good wishes to you too, Steve. Have a good one. 🍷🙋🏻‍♀️
