  1. Happy Wednesday everyone! For a five letter word, BOUND sure has a lot of meanings. In today’s cartoon we saw a couple of them. First the little bunny cleared the creek in a bound (by hopping over it.) The second was mom congratulating her baby as she knew he or she was eventually going to do it (bound to do it.) Some of the other meanings are: placed under legal or moral obligation, fastened by a band, the action of rebounding, a limiting line, secured to the covers by cords, tapes or glue, and lastly, and I guess you could say least, it can also mean you’re constipated!

    There was nothing new to report in the clue word department. All of the solved words have been used in the past, but three of the anagrams returned as new. UGATOE was the only anagram that’s been used more than once. It you removed the “U” from the beginning of the layout, it sounded like GATEAU! None of them slowed me down in the least, which made me a very hoppy camper.

    That momma rabbit has a head of hair on her that would make a grown man cry! Fortunately, I’m not in that boat yet, but I know what’s heading my way. Since rabbits don’t hibernate in winter, I’m sure they’re happy to see green grass and flowing water again. Rabbits have extremely strong hind legs which allow them to leap great distances. Young rabbits can only jump a few feet horizontally, but upon maturity that distance increases to roughly nine! My favorite detail was the look of delight on the little guy’s face. He’s so proud of himself — and rightfully so!

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 11 letters. Five of them were vowels and six were consonants. Since the majority of the answer was two-letter words, I started my solve by eliminating the usual suspects. With TO and IT removed from the equation, BOUND and DO were no trouble to find. Have a wonderful Wednesday, and keep Jumbling!

  3. Good Morning, Every Bunny…I hope this finds you well…🐰🙋🏻‍♀️

    🐰We all could use a BUDDY to help us here and there,
    ‘Cause OFTEN times an OUTAGE of our confidence appears…
    But here this Baby Bunny, like a BISHOP on chess boards,
    Learned he could move in any way…he just needed accord…
    The creek might have looked ominous…but clapping Mom knew his grit…
    That saying about leaps and bounds? He was def BOUND TO DO IT! 🐰

    • Now *there’s* an oldie but goodie that I might never have thought of again!
      Speaking of feet and oldies, I was just thinking of Frank Sinatra and his teenage fans the Bobby Soxers, so I’ll call that close enough to be a good coincidence.

  4. Puzzle answer did not come to me without doing words. And yes, “BOUND” was just not a part of my morning word repertoire. That said….all easy anagrams and then an easy puzzle solve followed.

  5. 🙇🏻‍♂️ He thought they’d eventually be BOUND TO DO IT, but the BISHOP and his BUDDY too OFTEN failed when it came to preventing another power OUTAGE…🙇🏻‍♂️

    👬🏻 The BUDDY system OFTEN proved to work out pretty well,
    The BISHOP felt a backup would allow worry to quell
    And if there was an OUTAGE, then the work could just be split…
    If not one then the other…either/or BOUND TO DO IT! 👬🏻

  6. Good morning. A Monday continuation. No problem with either the words or cartoon answer. I bet the guys that wrote that song never thought 68 years later that it would be a part of every wedding reception. Grown people hopping around the dance floor. It does get a lot of people in a happy mood. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Don’t you mean a HOPPY mood? 😉 Hoping you stay well and safe too, Paul. Enjoy your day…🐰🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Don’t let the Bishop know, but I will tell a Buddy that I Often blame a fake power Outage for being late to church. I am just Bound To Do It. Besides, a Sunday morning of golf out here on the Great Plains is sort of, kind of like going to church, ain’t it?

  8. Outage had me stumped,but with the other anagrams solved,and needing the O and T for the cartoon solution,which I had solved,led me to the outage anagram solution.

    • When you come to a roadblock, you have no choice but to take a detour. I’m happy that you were able to figure it out, Chuck!

  9. Hopped right to an easy solve of the anagrams and cartoon answer. Hope all of you have a good day.

  10. Hi all – OUTAGE was the word I didn’t recognize today. I first tried the GUE combo that often shows TONGUE, but all that was left over this time was an OAT. Finally just saw the OUT and the rest.
    I needed the letters to see the answer. I guess you could say he escaped getting wet by more than a “hare’s” breadth.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “He knew his friend was BOUND TO DO it again, but he was getting tired of how OFTEN his chess BUDDY would fake a power OUTAGE whenever he was trailing by more than a BISHOP.”
