  1. Good Morning, Everyone. 🍑 THE DREAM OF THE CROP 🍑

    🎶 Other arms reach out to me…Other eyes smile tenderly…Still in peaceful dreams I see the road leads back to you…I said GEORGIA…Oh, Georgia, no peace I find (no peace I find)…Just an old sweet song…Keeps Georgia on my mind…🎶…”Georgia On My Mind” – Mr Ray Charles 1960 https://tinyurl.com/f64mefyk *

    🍑 They met while on a CAMPUS, that’s where their love did THRIVE,
    They married, lived a happy life, the years came up on five…
    Threw parties…had a STEREO, good music and some snacks,
    They shared a love of CASHEW nuts…with FONDUE had a knack…
    But they longed for an orchard, so their INCOME they did save,
    And yes, their dream was realized, for we now see their trees wave
    So in the state of Georgia, where they’ve planted in the loam…
    We’re looking at them happily enjoy their “PEACHFRONT” HOME! 🍑

    Clingstones and Freestones. https://tinyurl.com/k5csasv8 And Nectarines. Oh, PIE!…Ok, Nectarines? https://tinyurl.com/ywsjzyd8 That one’s a given…But did the words Clingstones and Freestones help PEEL away any doubt you may have had that David was going for Peaches? Or were you still up a TREE? IMO? Between those words, plus Orchards in the question, our wife speaking of the Nectarines, and her husband mentioning “Georgia” – (the PEACH State) in the dialogue? This one was definitely cut and dry…No additives or PRESERVatives…Just a sweet…very, very sweet solve…

    For our third week running, we’re dealing with all Sweet Repeats when it comes to our words. And I did find one repeat anagram in the Archives that was RIPE FOR PICKING: DUNOFE, from January 2018. https://tinyurl.com/xwvr59cb But the only word that one of the guys was SOUNDing off about this morning was STEREO…And when I said…”Ok, I’ll BITE”…he said it was the “T” at FRONT that “T”hrew him off. Anyway…let’s proSEED…

    Today’s Jumble characters, GROWver Peachland, and his sweet wife, PITunia, are seen welcoming the day standing on their wrap-around balcony, admiring the FRUITS of their labor. Having achieved their dream of moving to Georgia, and owning a TASTEFUL HOME overlooking the FRONT of their bountiful PEACH Orchards, they realize that they’re now the cream of the CROP, the PICK of the litter…and still the apple of one another’s eyes…(C’mon, it’s still a fruit)!…And they love that view from their…”PEACHFRONT” HOME!

    Jeff’s Gems? I don’t know what he was thinking, but I can’t hear the words…”I love the smell of (anything) in the morning” without immediately thinking of “Apocalypse Now”, and Robert Duvall’s character, Lt. Colonel Bill Kilgore. But maybe it’s the PITS bringing up such an unaPEELing subject as war this early in the morning, huh?…So I’ll just move on…OK…There’s two brimming bushels, an almost filled wagon used for transport, and numerous stray peaches lying on the ground. And I like how GROWver has his arm draped lovingly over his wife’s shoulder. But I’m going to go with PITunia’s hand wrapped around an “I ♥️Jumble” mug of steaming morning brew. I can easily get a handle on that…

    So, There you have it Folks, Done. Be well, stay safe…and here’s hoping we all give PEACH a chance ** 🍑🙋🏻‍♀️

    * On April 24, 1979, “Georgia On My Mind,” with music by Hoagy Carmichael and lyrics by Stuart Gorrell, was designated Georgia’s official state song.

  2. 💰 In an effort to supplement their INCOME, they sold FONDUE and CASHEW nuts on the CAMPUS near their BEACHFRONT HOME, and with music from a STEREO drawing people in, their business so far did THRIVE…💰

    🏖 Remember when a gathering had FONDUE for a course,
    Especially on CAMPUS, it did THRIVE…chocolate the source?
    There might have been some CASHEW juice that guests with it had paired,
    A lot of INCOME, college kids had pooled and so they shared
    They’d listen to a STEREO, through albums they would comb…
    And lucky were the ones within a Campus BEACHFRONT HOME! 🏖

  3. Got it all but not quickly. I enjoyed working the anagrams and THRIVEd.
    I used to work for Kaiser and THRIVE was their slogan!
    Interesting cartoon. I’ve been to Atlanta many times but never focused on the peach fruit.
    So Sunday J was no sweat for me. Hope your mileage doesn’t vary!!!!!!

    • I like Jumble Jeff’s details, but there’s no way I’m counting all those clingstones!
      My solve was a peach of cake too, Mig. Kudos to D&J for a punny punchline. They’re a couple of great guys.

  4. For the past few days, I haven’t said anything about the tragedy in Miami, and it’s weighing heavily on me. I’m here making punny jokes, while the entire time my thoughts are consumed with the victims and their families there, and what they’re going through. My thoughts and prayers are with them, and I wish there was something more I could do, besides just pay lip service. Like the rest of the country, I’m praying for a miracle, and hoping those brave first responders stay strong. 🙏🏻

  5. Unlike others….struggled a little bit with the anagrams but all solved fairly quickly except having to back in STEREO. Prior to anagrams, our initial thought process led us down the road to PEACHYKEEN VIEW (saw the V in one of the words), but at least we had the PEACH covered. With anagrams solved, it was an immediate success story that followed right along. Love those Georgia Peaches….Have a PEACHYKEEN day !!!

    • Hi Terry…View was used as part of the dialogue, so keeping with custom, it wouldn’t show up in the solve. But I’ve had “peachy-keen” in my head all morning, too! 😉 And I love peaches also, even though I can’t handle them until someone peels them for me. Definitely a hindrance! 🤷🏻‍♀️ And I posted a comment to you last night, regarding your mentioning of Jimmy Van Heusen’s music. I hope you got to see it. Wishing you a peachy keen day too, Terry. Enjoy! 🍑🙋🏻‍♀️

      • Oh goodness….for some reason, didn’t comment on yesterday’s Jumble and missed your Jimmy Van Heusen news. If you have time, please re-send. And BTW, please read up on him if you like the Great American Songbook…I think Frank Sinatra recorded over 50 of his songs…and he’s a 4 time Academy Award winner !!! Thanks. Terry

        • Yes, I’m familiar with Van Heusen. If I’m not mistaken, there are more of his songs in Sinatra’s songbook than any other songwriter. They definitely made beautiful music together. And you’re very welcome. Anytime…Have a good one! 🍑🙋🏻‍♀️

          Here’s yesterday’s message…
          Hi Terry…I hope you get to see this. I don’t want you to think that I forgot about getting back to you yesterday…I didn’t…I just forgot to post it. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I copied the link for you in the afternoon, but just now saw it, as I was deleting some files…Sorry for delay..

          Here’s one of the songs that you were thinking of…🎶Road to Morocco🎶 – Hope and Crosby. Music by Edward Chester Babcock! Boy, he sure DODGEd a bullet with that name change, huh? 😉 Hope your day’s gone well, Terry…and wishing you both a great Saturday night! Enjoy! 🐪🙋🏻‍♀️ https://tinyurl.com/7vvmy8sh

          • As a last bit of trivia… While working for radio station, he changed his name…. Liked the name Jimmy….. they were all sitting around station and saw billboard outside window advertising Van Heusen shirts… and that name fit to a t.

            Bob Hope used the name Chester Babcock in Road to Utopia.

            As a pianist, I play a lot of those songs.

            Thanks for the link/info… tc

            • YW! How lucky to play the piano!…And I’ve always found Jimmy’s background to be interesting…let’s face it…he definitely needed to change that name! 😉 Enjoy your day, Terry. Stay well. 🎶🙋🏻‍♀️

  6. Despite having seen them before, I had to back into both Cashew and Fondue. Peach seemed like a sure bet, which made getting the answer a lot easier. Love the song and “Midnight Train to Georgia” too. Hot here in upstate NY, but I know it’s a lot worse for others.

    • Hot down here too, Caroline. And summer’s just begun…🤦🏻‍♀️ Enjoy your day…Stay cool. 🍑🙋🏻‍♀️

  7. Good morning. Failed miserably. Didn’t learn anything from the words I missed last time we had them. Then it carried on when trying to get the cartoon answer. Bring on Monday to restore everything that’s right with the world. Loved you posts Angela. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

    • Good Morning, Brooklyn. Hey…don’t be so hard on yourself. Betcha you would have aced it if it was about Blueberries! 😉 So here’s to tomorrow…and thank you. It was a sweet puzzle to work with! Have a great day, Paul! 🍑🙋🏻‍♀️

  8. Cute puzzle this morning. No problems with the anagrams though for some reason it took me some time to come up with the cartoon answer even though I knew peach had to be somewhere in there. Wishing all of you a peachy day.

    • …Good Morning, Betty. Definitely a cute one! And I wish you a peachy day, too! 🍑🙋🏻‍♀️

  9. Hi all – I would have had trouble with CAMPUS, STEREO and CASHEW if I hadn’t seen them recently here and in other puzzles. I tried ‘IC’ as a suffix for the last word as usual, then saw the ‘IN’ prefix for INCOME.
    I saw HOME in the answer letters which left PEACH standing out and gave the answer pun.

    One more “Georgia” song could have been “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay” – 🎵”Left my home in Georgia…”🎵

    I’m not seeing a good sentence today, so I’ll just send the usual good wishes to everyone.

    • Hey Steve…I think that’s one of Paul’s favorite songs…And yes, we’ve seen the words pretty recently in the Apps…Wishing you a good one. Enjoy! 🍑🙋🏻‍♀️

      • It certainly is Angela besides Respect by Otis Redding. Nobody tops him in those two songs. Take care.

        • I thought I remembered you saying that you liked Otis Redding. He definitely left us way too soon. You take care too, Paul. Enjoy your night…🍑🙋🏻‍♀️

  10. No problem w the anagrams but the cartoon puzzle got me as I was thinking front porch,rather than peach front for the first word.

    • Now that must have been the pits! 😉 And we all know what that’s like… once you get something stuck in your head, it’s hard to change course. Hope your day’s going well, Professor…🍑🙋🏻‍♀️
