  1. Making paper dolls, or anything out of construction paper really, seems like something of a lost art. I’m sure we’ve all participated in these types of projects at one time or another when we were kids, but it’s not something you see much of anymore outside of a kindergarten classroom. I’ve never made paper dolls like the ones featured in today’s cartoon, but I do remember making connected snowflakes around the holidays one time during my youth. My favorite craft memory was when my brother and I decided to make a paper chain out of strips of paper that would stretch all the way from the attic to the basement. We were successful in our endeavor, but my mom was (and still remains) a bit of a clean freak so she made us stuff it in trash bags and toss it just as soon as we were through. There was no way she’d let us keep it slinking through every level of our home no matter how proud of our accomplishment we were!

    There weren’t any new clue words to tell you about this morning. We did get three new anagrams though. LUCKA is the only one we’ve definitely encountered before. It was back in October of 2019 so it wasn’t all that recent. UPROOT gave me a bit of a struggle so it’ll be my pick for today’s hardest anagram. It looked like OUTPOUR to me, and it took a few Jumbles before finding UP which gave it away. I noticed that all of the anagrams appeared in ascending alphabetical order this morning. With today’s addition, it’ll be the sixth time it has happened this year.

    Cute cartoon of a little girl making some paper dolls. The clippings do look like they’d fit in the areas that were cut out so I’ll trust that Jeff got the shapes right. It seems like the dolls aren’t all that happy with their siblings. Their stated displeasure was oddly my favorite part of the cartoon. The big elephant in the room for me was how she was using the scissors without any adult supervision. Mom is just around the corner though, and those dolls do look pretty amazing so I’m guessing it’s probably not her first rodeo. Keep up the good work!

    The final solve was an anagram consisting of 13-letters. Five of them were vowels and eight were consonants. It was a fairly challenging layout, but all those T’s allowed me to find CUT and OUT in a flash. With those letters crossed out, the rest of the solution flowed quite easily to seal he deal. I guess that’s my CUTICLE (cue to call) it a day! Have a terrific Thursday everyone, and just keep UMGNJLIB!

    • Good morning David and Daisy! Thanks for dropping by and leaving us a video message. It’s always so much fun getting to hear what you have to say about the Jumble. Be well and have a terrific Thursday!!!

  3. Oddly I found CAULK and UPROOT a little difficult today. All in all it was easy.
    Today the Dodgers scored 11 runs in the first inning, oh boy! The poor Cardinals have to fly home after the game getting in around 5 am. Day off tomorrow for Big Blue.

    • Good morning. I just saw your pick Angela for the song choice. You picked one of the great groups. Seeing the video with Dean was enjoyable. Take care.

      • Hi Paul. Good Morning. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I love the Mills Brothers sound. I have a slew of their music…a lot on my Father’s old 78’s. I found this too…it may be from the same show, IDK. But Dean cracks me up. You can see how much he’s enjoying himself, and his joy is contagious. All great entertainers, but Dean had it all, IMO. Not just that great voice, but his comedic ability was such an added bonus. And then his smile…his looks?…Be still my heart! 😉 Hope you enjoy this too, Paul. Take care, and have a good one! ✂️🙋🏻‍♀️

  4. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Sitting reading the punch list…windows to CAULK, weeds to UPROOT and FILTH to be removed from the awnings, she spread BUTTER on her toast, and wondered if she was CUT OUT FOR THAT kind of work…🤷🏻‍♀️

    🦇 There’s holes to CAULK, and so much FILTH…on the floor she can feel soot,
    The best thing might be just to move…just pick up and UPROOT…
    The house closed up for so long, and now her nerves a flutter,
    …What is that melted in the sink? Let’s hope it’s only BUTTER!
    Wait, what’s that noise…that chirping sound…Oh God…is that a bat?
    That’s it…she’s definitely leaving….she’s so not CUT OUT FOR THAT! 🦇

  5. Good morning. I was surprised to find that Caulk wasn’t the number one pick for hardest word. I had a brain freeze and gave up after awhile. Maybe because it’s been just a tad few years that I actually held caulk in my hands that I had so much trouble with the word. The rest of them and the cartoon answer was a breeze. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Do you think it gave you trouble because LUCK was spelled out? I know it can throw me off sometimes when David arranges the letters that way. Glad you figured it out despite the minor setback. Happy Thursday Paul! 🙂

      • That LUCK thing certainly rolled around my head and slowed my roll…..

  6. Like Mig and Paul, I had major trouble with the words today – Caulk and Uproot. I missed the UP prefix on Uproot and thought it was going to be another word containing Out. I was able to get the answer and back into them. Fun drawing and dress comment.

  7. Caulk gave me reason to pause,but after getting that,uproot stumped me,but looking that answer up,led to a quick solve for the cartoon on a sunny warmer June day,

  8. Another vote her for uproot. I too kept thinking outpour. Once I got past that one everything fell into place nicely. Wishing all of you a good day.

  9. Hi all – Another easy June puzzle it seems. I recognized CAULK from some recent work (don’t ask! 😂), saw the UP prefix for UPROOT and used the double letter trick for BUTTER. One glance showed “Cut out for it”, and the letter layout easily gave the correct last word.

    Good wishes to everyone.

    Great song choice Angela – I’ve actually listened to it on YouTube lately. And after a year of not letting any workmen in the house due to the virus, your poem hits HOME a little too much!

    “She knew that to fix the foundation she would have to UPROOT the bush, clean up the resulting FILTH and CAULK everything and knew she wasn’t CUT OUT FOR THAT, so decided to just BUTTER up the handyman for a good price and let him handle it.”

  10. Goodness…where is this day flying off to…I usually weigh in early morning. Oh well…..Like others paused a bit on CAULK, but all-in-all, it has been an easy June. Angela, that Paper Doll arrangement from the Mill’s Brothers is a classic. And to see the creative Jumble genius and his doggie made my day. Thanks for that video.

    • Hi Terry. Yes, it is. It’s a great piece of music. Everything they did was gold. And yes, it’s always a good day when David and Miss Daisy stop by. Have a good one, Terry! ✂️🙋🏻‍♀️
