  1. The next thing you know, Jumble Jeff is going to try and convince us that Leonardo da Vinci also created the Jumble! I mean, he was pretty close with that drawing of a square and a circle on LDV’s desk. I guess it technically could be the beginnings of the Vitruvian Man, but those shapes would have to be a little more askew.

    There were no surprises when it came to today’s clue words. I thought RKLEEN and PMRIOT were both fairly challenging Jumbles, but RKLEEN perhaps just a smidge more. I’m sure quite a few people found KERNEL, but thought it was incorrect because there wasn’t an A in the layout. Silly litte spelling mistakes will trip you up if you’re not careful!

    A few articles I bumped into this morning did state that there’s compelling evidence to believe the Renaissance Man himself not only made drawings of a fountain pen in his journals, but that he actually constructed and used one as well. I’ll let others debate that as I was much more intrigued by the beautiful detailing work Jeff painstakingly added to his panel. The view of Florence from the window was my favorite. I could easily make out The Duomo of Florence Cathedral on the right as well as the clock tower of Palazzo Vecchio on the left. On the table behind LDV were some of his flying machine concepts. The aerial screw was the only invention I could absolutely identify, but there was another contraption next to it that looked like a “wing.” Underneath those items were some rolled up tubes of paper that most likely contain more drawings — or maybe even some priceless works of art! I thought the caricature of LDV was both convincing and passable. The action lines around the tip of the pen ended up being today’s big hint, but with so much going on in the panel I didn’t pick up on it.

    The final solve was a miniature anagram consisting of seven letters. Two of the letters were vowels and five were consonants. By reading the layout in reverse, I was surprised to see it was constructed in a manner where the solution was practically spelled out for us. It actually made me feel a bit better about not picking up on the ink drop clue! Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone, and just keep IBMJUGLN!

  3. Easy and fun J today.
    I had an INKLING I would LAUGH after IMPORTING a KERNAL of LAUGHter, but then I PANICked!!!!
    Each day is slightly warmer this week. No rain ever in the forecast. Fires starting up.
    Maybe I will move to the Rain Forest for some relief……………………….

  4. Good Morning, Everyone. I hope this finds you well…🙋🏻‍♀️

    🤷🏻‍♂️Even though they all had an INKLING that something could be amiss with the shipment, there wasn’t a KERNEL of proof…and as not to start a PANIC, they decided to LAUGH it off, especially when word came down that there were no immediate plans to IMPORT anything…🤷🏻‍♂️

    🍿 There was no need to PANIC, in fact he had to LAUGH,
    A KERNEL or two def had burned…but really not a gaffe…
    What was of major IMPORT though…that oil he was sprinkling?
    The gas needed be turned down …but too late he had the INKLING! 🍿

  5. Good morning. Easy as a Monday morning. Breezed through the words and after automatically putting down the letters and then reading the caption the answer was instant. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  6. Having a good Jumble week…. so far. Looked at puzzle answer, cogitated briefly… knew answer started with a vowel and probably included INK. That made for a fairly easy solve. Anagrams followed …. and today’s jumble can now be placed in the history books.

    I’ll bet I could move up a few “desks” in the game Angela found in the attic.. LOL.

    • LOL! I thINK you could too, Terry! Well done! 👏🏻👏🏻 Enjoy your day! ✍🏻🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Wow,I am rolling in June w a quick solve for the anagrams and cartoon,w just a momentary pause on import.Must be the tun to sunny and warm umber weather.

    • Umber weather? Oh, my!!
      I have an inkling today will be pretty nice, albeit one of June Gloom, but I will not panic.
      Have a great hump day all of you!

  8. Good morning again. There was no reason to Panic because the Kernel of corn that was an Import failed to pop, they forgot to plug the cart in. They all had a big Laugh because no-one had an Inkling that was the problem. Take care.

    • 👏🏻👏🏻…And no one was arrested for aSALT and BUTTERy! 😉🍿🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Good afternoon. Why I’m at bocce l read your work Angela and loved your song choice. One of the very best feel good movie was Sleepless in Seattle. Besides the good acting they had songs that matched the scenes. Jimmy Durante, Gene Autry and others were in it. It was so good I bought the album. I watch it every time they have it on. Take care.

        • Hey Paul. Tks, I’m glad you enjoyed it. And I have the soundtrack to the movie too…great music… I listen to it all the time. Good luck with your game. Enjoy! 🏐🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Hi all – I got INKLING by reading the cartoon. I’d say IMPORT was the hardest word, but the answer showed that “I” must be the first letter and that gave it to me.

    Well, strangely enough (although maybe not for me), what popped into my head was nothing about da Vinci or the history of pens, but rather the phrase “Her nibs, Miss Georgia Gibbs.” Go figure.
    Angela, how’s this for one of the coincidences we’ve been talking about here lately, given your link to Paul about “Inka-dinka-doo” 😱
    “In 1943, with her name changed to Georgia Gibbs, she began appearing on the Camel Caravan radio program, hosted by Jimmy Durante and Garry Moore, where she remained a regular performer until 1947. It was Moore who bestowed upon her the famous nickname “Her Nibs, Miss Georgia Gibbs.”
    And she was born “Frieda Lipschitz“, so I’d say that was a fortunate name change!

    Good wishes to everyone.

    “The shipper had the last LAUGH when supply-chain PANIC caused nearly every KERNEL of the corn crop he had had the foresight to IMPORT to be worth its weight in gold.”

    • Miss Georgia Gibbs! 👏🏻👏🏻..Suffice to say, our serendipity has been well-established…long ago! And it always brings me a smile… Although sometimes I thINK it’s a lot more than coincidence…That “mediocre mind” thing** of ours? Dangerous! 😂 Wishing you a good one, Steve. ✍🏻🙋🏻‍♀️
      ** “worth it’s weight in gold”…😉

  10. I too paused at import but other than that it was smooth sailing this morning. Hope all of you have a good Wednesday.

  11. Import took a bit, but the others were easy. For the answer, I first saw LINKING, but it didn’t make sense, and quickly found INKLING. I guess my neurons took a while to link up this morning.

    • You got it in the end, Dennis. That’s all that really counts! June has been a breeze so far….. 🙂

  12. Read the cartoon first again! I didn’t figure it out. First word! Well, you all know I like a good “Laugh”! And second word… I’m going to be “Panic” stricken, if I don’t get this relatively fast today! Well, And there it is! “Inkling” ….let’s just back into the rest of those two remaining words! Kernel! Did I spell it right? Yep! I guess I did! And Import….what else can it be! Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday! ☺️

    • Keep trying the reverse solves, Kim. They do get easier — especially when certain words aren’t used in the sentence. Those ones almost always pop out at me for some reason.

      Our holiday bbq was a washout, but everyone was able to make it so I was very thankful for that. I hope you had a wonderful holiday as well!

      • Oh, I’m so glad you had a good Holiday, despite the weather conditions! We will hope for the 4th of July 🇺🇸 to be spectacular! Take care!

          • Okey Dokey! A Double Wish for a good weekend then! 🤞🏻🤞🏻Will be thinking of you!
